Lore[edit]

Regal, powerful, the Dragon-God of the Eastern Sea commands storms and tides with the flick of a claw, yet he seethes with rage for past humiliations.

As one of four Dragon-Gods, Ao Kuang demands tribute from those along the Eastern shores. For their worship, tides remain calm, rivers contained, and rainfall for crops plentiful. It was not always like this, however. Long ago, Ao Kuang grew greedy and expected greater sacrifices. When they were not given, he sent floods, tidal waves, and devastating storms, striking so much fear into the people they dared not speak of this violence to the Jade Emperor. Ao Kuang enjoyed his total control.

Then came Sun Wukong to his undersea palace seeking a weapon for his famous journey to the West. Despite the offer of other weapons, Sun Wukong took the Ruyi Jingu Bang, an immense pillar that aided in controlling the tides. It was believed none could even lift it, but Sun Wukong spun it with ease. As if this were not humiliating enough, Sun Wukong demanded other gifts of armor, shoes, and helm, all of which Ao Kuang was forced to supply.

Next, the demigod boy Nezha, playing in a stream, inadvertently shook Ao Kuang's palace. Annoyed, the Dragon-God set forth his favorite scout to kill the child, but Nezha defended himself and the scout was slain. Furious, Ao Kuang ordered his third son to destroy Nezha, yet Nehza slew him as well. Completely outraged, Ao Kuang went to Nezha's father and threatened to take the issue before the Jade Emperor, but Nezha tackled the Dragon-King and forced him to submit.

Such repeated shame and humiliation have both humbled Ao Kuang and tempered his fury to steely resolve. Long has he awaited his chance to rise again and exert dominance as a great Dragon-God of the Sea.

Skills[edit]

Passive - King's Sword
Ao Kuang's sword can hold up to 3 energy charges, and regenerates charges while out of combat. Each time Ao Kuang casts an ability, an energy charge will be consumed if available, increasing the damage of the ability.

Trivia[edit]

  • On September 10, 2014 the original Ao Kuang received a major visual revamp that changed the character into Kukulkan, which gave way for the current Ao Kuang.
  • When Ao Kuang uses the ability Wild Storm, the quote "A mighty sword!", is a reference to the quote the Original Ao Kuang used when he used the ability, Whirlwind, which was "A mighty storm!".
    • Ao Kuang will also sometimes exclaim "Celebration!" when killing a Jungle boss, this is a reference to his original VEW quote which became a meme within the Smite community along with the former quote.
  • One of Ao Kuang's introductions, "Know your enemy, know yourself, and victory will be assured! ..Unless you're fighting a dragon, of course.", is a referance to a quote from the ancient Chinese text The Art of War.
  • One of Ao Kuang's directed taunts for Hun Batz, "Why do Mayan immortals always look so familiar?", references the fact that two characters from the Chinese pantheon (the original Ao Kuang and Sun Wukong) were revamped into Mayan deities.
  • Ao Kuang is one of the few Mages with melee basic attacks.
  • One of Ao Kuang's taunts, "You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting!", is a direct quote from the movie A Knight's Tale.
  • One of Ao Kuang's jokes, "Water can flow, or it can crash! Be water, my friend!", is a quote from the famous martial artist and film actor Bruce Lee.
