    Default Wuxia heroes who have pulled some shady crap in their day?

    What are some notorious instances of basically good, decent, honorable, and heroic wuxia characters who have pulled some surprisingly shady, morally dubious crap in their day?

    Yeah, but he didn't meet the "good, decent, honorable, and heroic" requirement. He put up an illusion of it, but that was never the real him.

    Great selections. This behavior is more common than most people think among even generally virtuous wulin people.

    I think we've established somewhere that most wulin experts are HORRENDOUS parents, both good guys and bad guys. It's like a child is a burden to their career so they decide to run off instead.

    In the event that they actually decide to keep the kids, they can't raise them worth crap and their children become spoiled little brats. (Huang Rong, I'm looking at you!!).
