YMMV / A Chinese Odyssey

Go To

  • Bilingual Bonus: Joker's Chinese name Zhi Zun Bao (至尊宝) refers to the Pai-Jiu combination. The same combo is also called the Monkey King Pair (猴王對). Foreshadowing Much?
  • Completely Different Title: Unless you count Joker's unwitting trip 500 years into the past, nobody is embarking on a terrible odyssey to find their family.
  • Tear Jerker: Demons or highly trained warriors have the ability to Body Surf at the physical level, with the option of actually seeing their internal organs. After Joker meets with Zixia, there's a moment where he challenges her to view his heart for herself to see if he's been lying about the whole time travel thing. Later on, he finally finds Jingjing, and he convinces her to view his heart for herself to see that his feelings are sincere. For some reason it backfires and Jingjing leaves him - but then tragedy strikes as Jingjing's sociopathic fellow demon, the Spider Demon, kills all of Joker's friends and has Joker at her mercy. Joker's last request - that he die by Diagonal Cut so he can see his own insides and figure out what Jingjing could have seen to make her leave him. What he sees is the tears shed by Zixia, upon learning that he was sincere about Jingjing - because she'd fallen for him herself.
