Warrior, rebel, trickster, monk, Sun Wukong is known by many titles in the East, yet it was a Journey to the West that made him a hero.
In his youth, Sun Wukong gained leadership of the monkey tribes, learned secret arts and spells from a Taoist monk, and acquired the legendary Ruyi Jingu Bang from Ao Kuang, a staff that could change size according to his whim. He defied death itself by wiping his name from the Book of Life and Death, and united many of the other monster tribes who sought to ally with him, an act that garnered the attention of the Jade Emperor.
In an effort to better control the Monkey-King, the Jade Emperor awarded him a title, but when Sun Wukong discovered his new position was little more than “stable boy” he grew angry and declared himself “Great Sage, Equal of Heaven,” and waged war on the heavens. For this treasonous act, he was finally captured and imprisoned beneath a mountain for five centuries.
At long last, the humble monk Xuanzang was seeking disciples to protect him while on his legendary Journey to the West to collect the Indian Sutras. Sun Wukong gladly agreed to serve him, but the Buddha wrapped a golden circlet around the Monkey King’s head so that Xuanzang could control him. With three other disciples, they faced eighty one trials during their quest, and collected the sutras. For his service and strength, Sun Wukong was awarded Buddhahood, finally ascending to heaven and gaining immortality.
With an epic battle between Gods taking place, Sun Wukong’s presence is all but assured.
When Sun Wukong is below 35% health, he gains +10% critical chance and +10 protections, plus another 1% critical chance and 1 protection for his current level.

Sun Wukong leaps onto his cloud, leaving a decoy behind to fight. While on the cloud Sun Wukong is invisible, and regenerates 5% of his health per second. He may leap off before the duration expires, dealing 140/190/240/290/340 (+120% of your physical power) damage in a 20 ft radius. The decoy inherits a percentage of Sun Wukong's current strength and defense. The decoy is killed instantly if hit by a hard CC. If the decoy dies, Sun Wukong is revealed on his cloud.
Deals 480 damage, in a 15 unit radius, to a maximum of 3 enemy minions or jungle monsters. Titans are also always hit. This will automatically kill the Fire Giant or Gold Fury if they are at or below 25% health.
On June 20, 2013 Sun Wukong received a major revamp that changed the character in his entirety, including the moveset. The original Sun Wukong was removed from the game, and Hun Batz inherited the old moveset; one of his joke emotes references this change.
Wukong's voice is provided by Sean Schemmel, who famously voiced Son Gokū of Dragon Ball (Son Gokū is the popular Japanese reading of Sun Wukong, using the same characters: 孫 悟空).
Sun Wukong´s joke "Don´t touch the tail!" is also a reference to Dragon Ball
