    Default Things that are probably true that you have trouble accepting

    What are some things that are most likely true but you have a hard time accepting? For example, Sweeper Monk can probably defeat Zhang Sanfeng in one stance, but I have a hard time believing it. Feel free to post some examples of your own.

    If something is canon, I usually just accept it, even if I don't agree with the logic.
    忽见柳荫下两个小孩子在哀哀痛哭,瞧模样正是武敦儒、武修文兄弟。郭芙大声叫道:「喂,你们在干甚麽?」武 修文回头见是郭芙,哭道:「我们在哭,你不见麽?」

    I don't like "all-powerful" characters, as Janitor Monk and Dook Goo Kau Bai are purported to be. To me, their presence ruins the other characters because the Elites and Greats suddenly don't seem very great at all. I don't mind their being better than the existing Elites/Greats (because someone, somewhere must be best, after all), but I really get turned off when people (including the author) begin suggesting that these characters are so powerful that NO combination of powerful fighters under ANY circumstances can EVER beat these supermen.

    I mean, I prefer a universe wherein a combination of Kiu Fung, Hui Juk, and Deun Yu *might* be able to overcome the Janitor Monk under the right circumstances, or where the Five Greats of ROCH combined would overwhelm Dook Goo Kau Bai if all the chips fell their way.

    I agree with you, but the term "Great" is relative to one's time period. There are several Qing dynasty novels where some characters could also be considered "Greats" of their time that no one in the era could ever imagine being beaten, yet they would probably all get OHKO'd by any "Great" in the Song dynasty. From a Qing dynasty perspective, all the top fighters in the Song dynasty could be considered Sweeper Monks.

    If a novel preceding DGSD existed, the Sweeper Monk may not appear so invincible after all, with characters like Murong Longcheng, Xiaoyaozi, and the founder of 6MSJ lurking about.
