    He can look like whatever you want in your headcanon, because that is the only place he will ever be. CA is hopefully never wasting time on that trash.

    Please tell me you're being sarcastic... MK has been all but confirmed for a long long time now...

    And not look like the god awful human with a bit of wild hair depiction he usually has in chinese tv shows and movies.

    Maybe show us a pic that fits the image that you want?

    Clearly this depiction captures the majesty of the Monkey King

    This guy took over Cathay, least for a while. An actual monkey would just be too goofish to take seriously imo.

    Now that's the type of monkey king I want to see.

    He better have some MONKEY MAGIC.

    Considering that the actual Monkey King is equal parts a divine immortal, a trickster, a warrior, and a semi-enlightened teacher, he's not going to be easy on the eyes, especially if the CA takes him down as a kind of radical revolutionary against the dragons.

    I don't see how any of that would really effect the way he looks.

    I mean, yeah, he should look like a classic version of Sun Wukong and it'll be ok.

    .... Warhammer's Monkey King is based on the Chinese Monkey King, who was basically written to spite Taoism and Confucianism through his antics. He's a superpowered troll and trickster whose entire existence was giving Heaven the middle finger until the Buddha stepped in.

    Just make him Vanilla coloured.

    Son Wukong is not a Gorilla King, he's the Monkey King. From his inception centuries ago to now, he has always been a nimble lean fighter, not some clumsy brute.

    This is how he would look in a "grimdark" setting. Sheesh it's like you think only Games Workshop knows how to do it.

    Incidentally, this would be some kickass Eshin.

    That's about as likely as this for a Norsca dlc.

    I would buy it though...

    Whatever he looks like.
    Still betting on him being associated with Zuvassin the Renegade Chaos God of mischief and undoing.

    And?

    I wouldn't really think that that would effect how he would look all that much, as long as he's a good hybrid of mostly monkey and a bit of human, then it'll work out.

    You know, that would actually be an interesting way to have the Monkey King be related to the chaos powers without just making him a lackey for any of the big four.

    It's the perfect background for him IMO, chaotic, but works against the other Chaos Gods and at the same time not being natural allies of order factions.
