    Default Jinyong disabled characters and their Specialty

    Just read about the Paralympics in Tokyo and thinking of Jinyong characters who have some forms of disability.

    Imagine the psychological struggle that a person goes through when he or she is going through some forms of disability.

    Please nominate your Jinyong disabled character and discuss about his or her skill or specialty.

    Flying Bat Ohr Jen Ngok, the leader of the Gong Nam 7 Freaks. Seems to find targets for his flying bat darts (batarangs?) via echolocation and cues from his fellow Freaks, particularly Freak # 6 Cheun Gum Fat.

    Do you think Ohr Jen Ngok would be a good candidate to learn the Flying Dagger skills from
    Li Xunhuan?

    Probably not. It was more than just a physical motion. It took a certain kind of person to pull it off. Only Lee Chum Foon and his student Yip Hoi ever mastered it. One or two other individuals were able to use it at a far inferior level, but only Lee and Yip ever achieved true mastery of the skill.

    Looks like the skill is difficult to master.
    Maybe JLFW may be a more suitable fit to learn this skill since he is very good at throwing his wheels.
    Imagine JLFW using Dragon Elephant Prana to throw the dagger with unstoppable force.
    But maybe he may lack perfect timing and accuracy.

    Isn't accuracy the most important part of this skill?

    The way Gu Long writes, it comes from purity of intent and character (it's kind of like Thor's hammer again). In Gu Long's universe, only Lee Chum Foon and Yip Hoi were able to attain such a level.

    I nomimate Qiu Qianchi.

    She is disabled, but she has strong internal and could forcefully spit a date out of mouth.

    I think this technique is one of the most effective skills to utilize if your aim is to injure your opponent in an unexpected way

    With her character, she could never do it. This was a technique that demanded certain moral attributes.

    No, I didn't mean I nominate Qiu Qianchi to learn the legendary Flying Dagger technique and forcefully spit a dagger out of her mouth. Although, this would be extremely cool if she could do that.

    I nominated her for the purpose of this thread. LoL

    Well, yeah...she made it work for her. As a quadriplegic, she had limited options. Mouth missiles were really the only option. It was better than nothing, at least...better than being completely helpless.

    Mo Dong Hero # 3 could have used a skill like that, but he didn't have the necessary cruelty to use such a technique.

    Well, she was a cruel person, but at least, she loved her daughter dearly.
    On the contrary, Gongsun Chi was a despicable and pure evil person who sacrificed his daughter for lust.

    My interesting thought:
    I think YG does not need to learn the Flying Dagger technique and could still be pretty effective, in an alternative way

    He could throw the dagger at an opponent from an effective distance and use the Divine Flicking technique to hit the dagger while it is in motion.

    Doing this would increase the velocity of the dagger and increase its power significantly.
    If the dagger hits its target, it would cause devastating damage.

    YG would need to practice with this technique until he has achieved great accuracy.

    Lee's Flying Dagger works in an almost metaphysical way in line with how Gu Long writes. Speed, reflexes, accuracy, etc., seem to become irrelevant when it comes to the Lee Flying Dagger. If his intent is righteous, Lee Chum Foon's dagger will find itself embedded in the target. No one will see him pull out the dagger or throw it. It will just...somehow end up in the enemy's heart or throat.

    HOWEVER, very strong opponents such as Lee's archenemy Seung Gwoon Gum Hung were able to prevent Lee from launching the dagger. Once it is unleashed, however, it cannot be evaded or deflected.

    One target, however, survived being hit by it because of her prodigious bodily fat. The dagger could not penetrate through her fat to actually injure any vital organs. She suffered only a flesh wound.

    Wow! Pretty interesting stuffs.

    Sounds like since the dagger could not penetrate her fats, the force of the dagger is not that great.
    The dagger is lethal due to its accuracy, hitting vital organs or parts of the body.

    Yes, XLN could throw her needles accurately to hit the opponents, but what she is lacking is sheer force in her projectiles.
    Sheer force, YG has plenty.

    Also could project 1 Yeung Finger through his cane and crutches, which was pretty cool.

    Mo Dong Hero # 3 could have used a skill like that, but he didn't have the necessary cruelty to use such a technique.
    Wudang Hero #6 was doing exactly this, ie., spitting stones from his mouth, to fight off the vultures when his arms were all broken by the Mongol mercenaries.
