''Xuan Dou Zhi Wang'' (loosely, ''[[WritingAroundTrademarks The King of Dazzling Fights]]'') is a 2D {{fighting game}} from Tencent Games and Jade Studios. It is currently available only in China as a free-to-play title similar to [[MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame MMORPGs]].

The game (commonly abbreviated as ''XD'') features combat that is closely related to ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''.

One difference between ''XD'' and ''KOF'' is the inclusion of two button throws, which is commonly seen as a staple of the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series ever since ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 3''. To perform a throw in ''XD'', the player presses LP+HP simultaneously, or Back+LP+HP to perform a back throw, throwing his enemy behind him.

''XD'' also bears a different visual style than ''KOF''. Whereas the latter opts for hand-drawn sprites, ''XD'' instead uses 3D models that are captured and converted into sprite animations, similar to how games like ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' or ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' were made. One advantage of this method is it allows for the inclusion of alternate costumes, which is something not often seen in 2D fighting games.

''Xuan Dou Zhi Wang'' features an RPG-style leveling system that is mostly used for matchmaking. The more games you play, the higher your level is; even when you lose, you still gain experience. The game uses this to help match you with players of similar skill levels. The online component is also one of the most important features of the game, as the main design of the game is the MMO component.

[[http://xd.qq.com/act/a20130418release/page05.htm Recent news confirms that]] [[VideoGame/FatalFury Terry Bogard]] and [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Benimaru Nikaido]] [[GuestFighter will be added to the roster in a future update]], making the aforementioned ''KOF'' comparisons come full circle.

If you want to visit the main site, hit up [[http://xd.qq.com/ this link.]] Be warned, though: the game is currently in a closed beta phase and securing access keys is at best a chore. You can view the entire cast [[http://xd.qq.com/act/a20130311role/ here]] (at the moment it's still growing so there will be new characters popping up from time to time).

!!''Xuan Dou Zhi Wang'' provides examples of:
* AnIcePerson: [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/201212311435/index.shtml Claire Fox.]] Her moveset uses a lot of [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Kula Diamond's]] attacks.
* BruceLeeClone: [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/201303071559/ Long,]] although he does a few things that are somewhat original for his character archetype; as far as fighters are concerned, {{Bruce Lee Clone}}s using [[FightingWithChucks nunchaku]] and {{Counter Attack}}s is still a bit uncommon.
** RapidFireFisticuffs: True to form, it's his super.
* CastingAShadow: Seems to be [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role//201210231115/index.shtml Brazel's]] gimmick, although what his power is exactly is unclear.
* CombatPragmatist: [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role//201303211570/ Cloud,]] who fights with things like a Desert Eagle and Franchi SPAS-12 shotgun. He also uses [[KnifeNut a tactical knife]] and [[DeathFromAbove can call in an airstrike on his opponent]].
** MoreDakka: Cloud whips out a minigun for one of his supers.
** ThrowDownTheBomblet: Included in his arsenal's long list are grenades.
* {{Expy}}: Quite a few.
** [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/201302051493/index.shtml Tsukikage Arashi]] --> Freeman from ''[[VideoGame/FatalFury Garou: Mark of the Wolves]]''
** [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role//20120921831/index.shtml Kuraki Kaoru]] --> [[VideoGame/PsychoSoldier Athena Asamiya]] from ''The King of Fighters''
** [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role//201212111372/ Sheva]] --> Benimaru Nikaido from ''KOF'' (this guy/girl([[DudeLooksLikeALady ?]]) is basically move-for-move Beni; weird since Benimaru was one of the chosen {{Guest Fighter}}s)
** [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/201302261519/ Ray]] --> [[VideoGame/IkariWarriors Clark Still, Ralf Jones]], or Maxima from ''KOF'' (unclear, since he seems to have traits from all of them; definitely TheBigGuy of the roster, though)
** [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role//201211291353/index.shtml Prayuth]] --> Joe Higashi from ''Fatal Fury''
** [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/201302261521/ Panda]] --> Po from ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda''
** [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/201302051491/ Legend]] --> Takuma Sakazaki/Mr. Karate from ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'' (alternatively, he's Ryo Sakazaki as Mr. Karate II, as seen in ''VideoGame/NeoGeoBattleColiseum'' and ''KOF: Maximum Impact 2'')
** Cloud arguably comes across as ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvil5 RE5]]'' and beyond-era [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Chris Redfield]], particularly for anyone who's played ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Marvel vs. Capcom 3]]''. He also carries shades of Kevin Rian from ''Garou: [=MotW=]''.
** [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/201307251974/ King]] --> Ryu from ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' (not so much in visual appearance but absolutely in his attacks)
* FollowTheLeader: To say the least ''XD'' uses a lot of animations cribbed from ''The King of Fighters''. Some characters (like Kuraki Kaoru or Sheva) are pretty much duplicates. Still, in spite of it, the people making the game are actually pretty good at it so many people let this slide.
* GuestFighter: Despite being so heavily influenced by ''The King of Fighters'' to the point that it's probably stepping on some legal toes, Tencent and SNK came to an agreement over the game; not only does SNK approve of it, but they're letting Terry Bogard and Benimaru Nikaido join the roster.
* HandwrapsOfAwesome: As to be expected of a ''nak muay'', Prayuth has both his hands/forearms and feet/lower legs wrapped in hemp cloth.
* KickChick: [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/201302281531/ Lee Won Hee.]] She's essentially something in-between ''Fatal Fury''/''The King of Fighters'' mainstay Kim Kaphwan, his pupil May Lee from ''KOF 2001'' and ''2002''(''UM''), and his ''other'' pupil from the ''Maximum Impact'' sub-series Chae Lim.
* KidAppealCharacter: At 11 years old, this seems to be [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/201302221512/index.shtml CoolB's]] niche. He fights with a strange, futuristic MickeyMouse-like object that can seemingly generate energy.
* PlayingWithFire: [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role//20120913813/index.shtml Yan,]] who's basically a [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Kyo Kusanagi]] {{Expy}}.
* RazorWind: [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role//201211211333/ Shirley.]]
* ShockAndAwe: [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/20120903788/ Ell Blue.]]
* SincerestFormOfFlattery: At best ''XD'' is an homage to ''KOF'' and uses some very... "direct" tributes. At worst it's TheMockbuster (though, again, due to the game's competent gameplay this is forgiven by most people who have seen it).
* SNKBoss: [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Black Brazel]].
* TokenMiniMoe: [[http://xd.qq.com/act/role/201301051443/ Lynn.]]
