After the First Mt. Hua Sword Tournament, East Heretic Wong Yerk See, West Poison Au Yeung Fung, South Emperor Deun Chi Hing, and North Beggar Hung 7 Gung each looked forward to the next tournament, hoping to achieve what he could not at the first tournament: prove himself the greatest fighter in the world. Naturally, each of these Greats would have been proudest to win with a martial art that he either created (Wong Yerk See and Au Yeung Fung), as Central Divinity Wong Chung Yeung had done in the first tournament, or inherited from his predecessors (Hung 7 Gung and Deun Chi Hing). Wong Yerk See and Au Yeung Fung, however, had no compunctions about using the 9 Yum Jen Ging (which neither had created nor rightfully inherited) to give himself the edge over the other Greats. Although Wong Yerk See cared little what the world thought of him, and Au Yeung Fung even less so, didn't either of them feel a tinge of regret that even if he did win, he would be doing it with a martial art that did not belong to him?
