Drinking Game / Mo Dao Zu Shi

Go To

Mo Dao Zu Shi is essentially a story that will make you feel like drinking at some point, either because the main character loves to drink or because a character or story arc is so depressing that you need to take a swig to make yourself feel better.

Take a sip whenever:

  • Wei Wuxian calls Lan Wangji by his birth name. Take two if he calls him by his title. Take a whole shot when he calls him by his courtesy name.
  • Advertisement:
  • Lan Wangji says "Wei Ying". Take a shot if he says "Wei Wuxian" instead.
  • Jiang Cheng says Wei Wuxian's name.
  • Jiang Cheng loses his temper. Take two if it has something to do with Wei Wuxian.
  • Jin Guangyao either says "Er-Ge" (Second Brother) or "Da-Ge" (First Brother).
  • Lan Xichen says "A-Yao".
  • Either Jiang Yanli or Jiang Fengmian says "A-Xian" or "A-Cheng".
  • Wei Wuxian offends someone.
  • Wei Wuxian reacts to a dog.
  • Lan Jingyi sasses someone.
  • Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji have a misunderstanding about their feelings for each other.
  • The cultivation world is acting like hypocritical idiots.
  • Nie Huaisang says "I don't know." If he says it three times in a row, take a shot instead.
  • Anyone calls Wei Wuxian by his title.
  • Lan Qiren is about to have an embolism over Wei Wuxian.
  • Yu Ziyuan gets her undergarments in a wad over Wei Wuxian or the rest of her family.
  • Advertisement:
  • Jiang Fengmian shows that he failed (yet again) to be a nurturing father to Jiang Cheng.
  • Lan Xichen becomes defensive of Jin Guangyao.
  • Wen Ning stutters in his sentences, but take a shot instead for the times when he doesn't stutter.
  • Nie Mingjue gets hot-headed over Jin Guangyao.

Take a shot whenever:

  • A named character dies. Yes, Wei Wuxian counts; and yes, as long as they're introduced with only either a family name or a birth name, they count too.
  • Lan Wangji has a drink with Wei Wuxian. Take two shots when you reach the part where he drinks wine for the very first time.
  • Lan Wangji uses the Silencing Spell on someone.
  • Lan Wangji throws the shade. Two if it's at Wei Wuxian's expense.


Take a tall glass when:

  • Either Wei Wuxian, Lan Wangji, Jiang Cheng, or Jin Ling starts to cry.
  • Wen Ning drops the ultimate truth bomb on Jiang Cheng. You'll know when it happens.
  • When Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji finally get together.
  • Lan Xichen crosses the Despair Event Horizon.


  • Pour the entire glass or bottle's contents into your mouth whenever Wei Wuxian does that with a jar of Emperor's Smile.
