    Default Difference in Wuji vs Miejue and Jiumozhi vs Xu Zhu

    In terms of difference in inner strength, the gap between Wuji and Miejue should be larger (percentage wise at least) than Xu Zhu vs Jiumozhi right?

    At the point of their fight, Xu Zhu had only received Wuyazi's inner strength and had not yet absorbed the other two elders yet. Unless we believe Wuyazi is more than 4-5x stronger in inner strength than a Great level fighter like Jiumozhi (which ultimately would lead to Xu Zhu having 15x+ the inner strength of a Great later on...), the difference should be less than Wuji who is around 4-5x of Miejue at this point of the story. By the end of the novel Wuji likely has 10x the inner strength of someone like Miejue.

    Neither knew how to use their inner strength at this point either; it was just the auto function that protected them.

    Why is Miejue able to harm Wuji with her bare palms, while Jiumozhi was helpess against Xuzhu and was actually hurting himself? Sure Miejue used a bit of trickery in her palm techniques, but Jiumozhi is a Great level fighter who has much more at his disposal than her; he wasn't a one tricky pony that could only hit at full strength and clearly saw he was up against a terrible martial artist with great inner strength.

    What's happening in these fights?

    Edit: Looks like I mis-remembered actually and it was after he absorbed the 3 Elders. So nvm, it makes more sense. There is still a difference in a Greats level fighter beating himself up versus Miejue being able to hurt someone with 5x+ her inner strength, but it is explainable!

    Not sure whether this thought make sense.
    ZWJ's inner strength = his = limited by his potential.
    Similarly for Miejue and possibly JMZ.
    Xz = his + transfer = > a lot much higher than zwj.

    Potential (ZWJ, Miejue, JMZ) = 100% at most.
    Potential + transfer = > = 400% for XZ.

    Assume zwj = 100% and Miejue = 50%. Difference = 50%.
    XZ = 400%; JMZ = 100%. Difference = 300%

    I am not sure where you got that from but JMZ did not injure himself when hitting XZ. He actually thought he landed a crippling blow at first.

    Anyway, another way to look at it might be this way.

    ZWJ 100 pts, Meijue 25 pts. ZWJ is 4x stronger and he has 75 pts more energy.

    XZ 500 pts and JMZ 200 pts. XZ is _only_ 2.5x stronger but he has 300 pts more energy. So there is a smaller relative but bigger absolute gap.

    Didnt JMZ's hands start to get swollen and hurt and such? He wasn't hurt internally but physically he was literally beating himself up iirc.

    Could also be a new idea conceived in DGSD a la LDA that we don't really see in prior novels. We saw it again in Shi Potian's auto protect (written after DGSD).
