    what is the Shaolin Monk-ey's design based off

    This is just something I notice and thought it was worth an ask because mainly I'm a DBZ fanboy xD but is the skin design based off Goku? I was just looking at it and I realised it had a very close resemblance to Goku from Dragon ball (if you don't watch dragon ball z then this bit wont make sense to you) I mean Goku can turn into a giant ape so it makes sense that its Hun-bat's skin and he has a pole he uses to fight with and Goku also uses a staff to fight with called the power pole and also he has an orange suit and blue belt same as Goku and Goku is a master of martial arts hence why its called SHAOLIN monk-ky and another similarity is that is has a simble on the back of the skin simeler to Goku's. I thought it would have been an amazing reference if it is based on Goku and is why i think its an awesome skin . i would appreciate a confirmation and i would also prefer that people don't start making fun of me coz im such a fanboy

    thanks

    The skin itself is based off of DBZ, the model is the old Sun Wu Kong.

    This is what he looked like Pre-Tencent

    Goku is based on Sun Wukong, and the creators of DBZ got the character close to the lore. Plus HiRez got Sun Wukong's model fairly close to the lore, so that's why they're similar.

    Interestingly, another name for Sun Wukong is Sun Gokong, which is where the name Son Goku comes from.

    ... the turtle hermits uniform was based off of shaolin monks, just saying.

    kuririn came from a shaolin monastary, and the author just kind of kept that uniform iirc.
