    The most iconic moment in all of STAR WARS:

    Luke Skywalker facing off Darth Vader (and/or his past misdeed(s)) = Yang Guo (son) facing off Yang Kang's (father's) "evil" past (metaphorically of course, since Yang Kang actually perished whereas Anakin Skywalker went on life support):

    The ~3-5% Japanese part (a Shogun armor does not make STAR WARS, it was the father turned evil and the son, Yang Guo, redeeming his father, Yang Kang, theme that made it an instant classic!)

    How 'Made In China' Became Cool

    A revolution in consumer sentiment has spread across China. “Made in China” no longer inherently means cheap, inferior, and unfashionable. The respectable Chinese brand has emerged, and some have not only caught up with their more established foreign rivals but have actually started to surpass them in China and beyond.

    In 2011, 70% of smartphone sales in China were from three foreign brands: Nokia, Samsung, and Apple. At that time, the country’s myriad local electronics manufacturers and nascent domestic brands were thought to be little more than cheap impostors, lacking in quality and simply not carrying the same social-proof and status as the expensive and trendy foreign phones which dominated the market.

    “Any self-respecting Chinese consumer wouldn’t be seen dead with a local brand,” Mark Tanner, the director of China Skinny, a Shanghai-based consumer research firm, described the prevailing attitude of this period.

    But now, hardly five years later, this has changed.

    The Elders who trained Yang Guo as their last deed:

    Ouyang Feng & Hong Qigong:



    (In Condor Heroes, they both trained the protagonist at the same time on a snow field)


    Likewise to Luke, ObiWan & Yoda:





    Although ObiWan & Yoda sequentially trained Luke, we see a similar "training atmosphere" in STAR WARS, where Force ghost ObiWan calls to Luke while lying frozen on a snow field on Hoth:
