    Default Golden Wheel Monk's weapon

    i once asked this question on other forum/community, and many people have different imagination of the wheel shape.
    GWM has 5 wheels, each use different material, but what do u think the wheel looks like?
    if possible , describe it with picture

    On the other hand, a plain and simple ring (especially in a medium that caters to visual appeal) would be aesthetically boring.

    5 different wheels? According to ROCH83, there are only 2 identical wheels.

    Five. In fact, some have mooted that his name perhaps should have been the Five Wheels Monk instead of the Golden Wheel Monk.

    The niftiest one was a magnetic wheel that could direct the movements of the other four. It was a kind of premodern remote-operated guided ballistic weapon.

    How did he carry 5 wheels around? Did he have them in a bag?

    My guess is that they were in his robe/cloak. It's more plausible than West Poison Au Yeung Fung carrying live, venomous snakes in his clothing.
