He is know for stealing the wives of heroes and attempting to make them his wife, However due to his appearance and actions, is unable to do so. Oh there’s also the fact that he cannot die so if you get into any sort of fight with him, odds are you’re probably going to die yourself.
Although is he is pretty much immortal, there is one way to ultimately get rid of him. You must destroy his soul. Unfortunately for you, he’s hidden his soul away in the form of a needle. And the needle is inside of an egg, which is inside of a duck, which in turn is inside of a hare. The hare itself is hidden inside of an iron box, which is buried under an oak tree, which is on the mythical island of Buyan, home of the three winds. Good luck trying that!

others, however, described the Monkey-man as having a more vulpine snout, and being up to eight feet tall, and muscular; it would leap from building to building like a parcour enthusiast. Still others have described it as a bandaged figure or as a helmeted thing. Theories on the nature of the Monkey Man ranged from an Avatar of the Hindu god Hanuman, to an Indian version of Bigfoot.

Another myth says to become a were-tiger from beyond the grave, you had to have been killed by a tiger. As cool as it sounds, Just make sure you don’t make any ancient chinese spirits angry
