In the West, often called monkey king or simply monkey, is a main character in the Chinese novel Journey to the West. He is a leading cultural and folk figure across Asia.
It was born from the inside of a rock on Huaguo Mountain, with the winds and moon shaping the stone as a monkey that came to life in a supernatural way.
He soon becomes the leader of a tribe of monkeys who take up residence safely in the cave of the water curtain on the mountain of flowers and fruits.
Wùkang reigned happily over the monkeys for many years until he finally began to achieve his own mortality.
Seeking a way to become immortal, Wùkong first trains under a Taoist patriarch and masters many magical spells.
When the ten judges of the dead come to pick him up, he retaliates, managing to erase his name and all the names of the monkeys from the book of life and death. The judges of the dead denounced him to the Emperor of Jade for these misdeeds.
At the residence of the immortals on Mount Pezlagi, Wùkong is appointed guardian of the celestial horses to avoid trouble. When he discovers his pro;otion has a low rank, he rebels, calling himself "Great Wise, equal of heaven".
After a long battle, the gods are forced to recognize this title, and Wùkong is appointed guardian of the fishing garden of the immortality of X-Wung M. .
When he learns that the Xeans have excluded him from an important banquet, he rebels again, stealing the immortality peaches of X-Wong M, the longevity pills of Lao Tzu and the royal wine of the Jade Emperor, devouring them all. He then returns to the cave of the water curtain, where the army of heaven attacks. He defeated the entire army as well as Erlang Shen, the greatest general in the sky.
Buddha Vairocana finally traps Wùkong in a mountain, under a seal with the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum. Here, he remains until Guonyan makes him the disciple of Xuonzàng . He accompanies Xu-nzàng on the journey to retrieve sutras from India, alternately protecting his companions and causing mischief. He finally attains enlightenment and becomes a Buddha, finally getting his much-desired immortality.
