    Default LSF: Madame Gung Sheun vs. the Sword Gods

    In THE EMBROIDERY THIEF (Vol. 2 of Gu Long's LUK SIU FUNG series), Luk Siu Fung observed that Madame Gung Sheun's sword moves were "even more frightening than Sai Mun Chui Sheut's", and Madame Gung Sheun herself bragged that she could counter Yip Goo Sing's "Celestial Angel" Sword Technique if he used it against her. Madame Gung Sheun was indeed a great swordfighter, but does anybody *really* think she would stand a chance against Yip Goo Sing or Sai Mun Chui Sheut?

    Also how well is her disguise technique when compared to others in the GL universe?

    Er, didn't LSF say Madame Gong Sun's moves were 'almost' as frightening as SMCX's sword moves due to their complete unpredictability?

    Well, didn't she eventually go up against Yip Goo Sing? I guess the outcome of that should answer your question.

    Hard to say because there are so many great disguise artists in the GL universe. I don't think anything she did stood out all that much for me.

    Yes, but didn't Yip Goo Sing sneak up behind her and *choke* her to death with a piece of cloth? That doesn't tell us much about their respective sword skills.

    Indeed it is, but as we learn in LUK SIU FUNG: THE DUEL (Vol. 3), Yip Goo Sing is not all that he seems.

    Maybe it's because Yip Goo Sing has no confidence against her hence resorted to such a dirty trick?

    It's not that (more spoilers ahead). Yip Goo Sing was in the midst of a *very* secretive plot to overthrow the Emperor, and Madame Gung Sheun was getting too close to discovering just what he and his cohorts were up to. Yip Goo Sing probably could have killed Madame Gung Sheun with his Celestial Angel Sword Technique, but to do so would have given away his identity (Who else could perform that technique? Luk Siu Fung could, but Yip Goo Sing didn't know that). Yip Goo Sing, therefore, had to *murder* Madame Gung Sheun in a way that nobody would suspect that it was him.

    I never liked Yip Goo Sing ...

    He killed a lot of people ... and most of his victims were innocent, too. How much of a real swordsman is that?

    That's exactly the question Sai Mun Chui Sheut posed to him before their duel.

    Yip Goo Sing was supposed to be a villain, so he was never meant to be blameless. Nevertheless, only a handful of villains have ever exuded *coolness* (in a sinister, villainous way) like Yip Goo Sing did.

    The best LXF villain, I think was Gong 9.

    I just really can't stand Ye GuCheng, because he was part of the reason XMCX's family fell apart in the end.

    Gong 9? that guy is sick. hahahaha
    anyway, i dont like how he is defeated in the end. He was supposed to be invicible, yet he died easily. What happen to the man who is the leader of the island. How come there are no mentioning of him after book 6? can any1 clarify that for me.

    For LXF, i like book 1 to book 5, book 6 and 7 are jus weird.

    He's better off without his family. Yay for Ye GuCheng. Nay for Sun XiuQing.

    Still, Sun XiuQing pretty much gave up a lot for XMCX.
