* An example that surprised many viewers: In this animated film all charcters are practicioners of a fictional martial art. Everybody is doing impossible, reality-defying, jumps and leaps. The action scenes are deliberately depicted in fast camera. Martial artists band together due to honor and duty. Masked fighters attack from ambush. Heirs to rival martial arts schools have an epic showdown. Yes, that's a {{Wuxia}} movie, all right. The catch? The fictional martial art is [[spoiler: sensha-do, the Way of the Tank]], the movie is [[spoiler:GirlsUndPanzerDerFilm]], and the exact genre is [[spoiler:''[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Wuxia with tanks]]'']].

Although some ''wuxia'' stories are set in modern times, or even the future, most take place in the "Martial Arts World" of ''Jiānghú'' (江湖 -- literally "rivers and lakes") a FantasyCounterpartCulture of ImperialChina. The ''Jianghu'' is a "shared universe", populated by martial-artists and monks, [[KnightErrant wandering knights]] and beautiful princesses, thieves and beggars, priests and healers, merchants and craftsmen. The best ''wuxia'' writers draw a vivid picture of the intricate relationships of honour, loyalty, love and hate between individuals and between communities in this milieu. It is implicit that law and government are unjust, ineffective and/or corrupt, requiring the ''xia'' to settle differences by force moderated only by their chivalrous code, and often forcing them to live as outlaws despite their noble characters. In modern Chinese, perhaps as a result of these connotations of a separate world with its own rules, the term ''jianghu'' has taken on other meanings, including [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs the underworld or criminal gangs]].
