Sun Wukong brings a blend of damage-dealing prowess and disruptive debuffs to the battlefield. His self-revive mechanic and ability to place Sheep debuffs on enemies make him invaluable in both offensive and defensive strategies. In PvP battles, Sun Wukong shines as a disruptive force, capable of stunning enemies with his Gotcha! (A1 skill). This ability’s potency increases against opponents with active buffs, making him a formidable presence in the Arena. Additionally, his Now You See Us (A3 skill) enables him to removes buffs from enemies and place Block Buffs debuffs, effectively neutralizing buff-heavy teams.

Sun Wukong’s utility extends beyond PvP encounters, as he proves to be a valuable asset in PvE content such as the Doom Tower and Hydra Clan Boss. His Staff Of Wonder (A2 skill) allows him to bypass enemy defenses and deal significant damage, making him a reliable option for tackling tough bosses and waves of enemies. Additionally, this skill should be used strategically to target high-defense enemies to polymorph them into Sheep for increased crowd control.

Sun Wukong’s Unbeatable Wukong (passive skill) grants him a second chance at victory by self-reviving with full HP and Turn Meter three turns after being defeated. This feature not only prolongs his presence in battles but also synergizes well with with solo champions such as Burangiri and Lady Annabelle when raiding Boomal the Dreadhorn, or champions who utilize allies death such as Valkanen.

Sun Wukong Champion Lore

In the remote Zuriban Hills in the land of Yakai, there is a temple called the Gadiato, built to contain a mysterious relic from the distant past. A complex construction of stone and brass clockwork, graven with mystic runes, no mortal knew its function. They knew only that it was important, and so monks protected it dearly until one day its true function would be revealed. Wukong was one such monk, but he was no pious soul. He had such little interest in serving in the Gadiato that to convince him to join, he was awarded the title of ‘Sun’, or, ‘great sage’. To the rest of the monks, it was a mocking symbol of his arrogance, but Wukong believed his title wholeheartedly. He was given a diadem and staff as badges of his office, and he loudly extolled his wisdom and virtue.

One day, the prideful Sun Wukong was offended by the presence of a fire monkey, whom he believed was stealing from the monastery. When he spotted it, he struck it down with an arrow, even though his faith preached tolerance and kindness to all creatures. It was no ordinary fire monkey however, but a shapeshifting Fae, a trickster spirit from the primordial wilds. The spirit of the dying Fae lashed out and attached itself to the soul of Wukong. A mental and physical struggle ensued, and Wukong was transformed into a simian Skinwalker. Unlike in the case of most Skinwalkers, who largely retain their personality after transforming, the soul of the Fae wormed its way deep into Wukong’s psyche, causing him to acquire its capriciousness and whimsy, and granting him great beastly strength. Worse, the Fae cursed Wukong, binding his gaudy diadem to his flesh so it could not be removed, and binding his body to the Gadiato, so he could never leave. When he realized this, he raged and despaired.

Sun Wukong stewed in his anger, until a mysterious pilgrim arrived and came to him. When they were alone, she cast off her humble robes and revealed a glorious light — it was the Arbiter herself. She told Wukong that she knew of his plight, and that his fate was richly deserved, for he was a blowhard and a hypocrite. Nonetheless, she offered him a chance for redemption: her power was sufficient to nullify the curse, as long as he remained in her presence, allowing him to leave the temple. She proposed he join her on a journey of penitence. Skeptical at the appearance of a legendary immortal, Wukong demanded proof of the Arbiter’s power. In response, she approached the ancient stone relic of the Gadiato. At her touch, its runes glowed and the mechanical device levitated before her. It followed her like a dog on a leash, and she explained that she intended to return the relic to its rightful owners. Convinced, Wukong agreed to serve as the Arbiter’s bodyguard. He was desperate to lift his curse and, on a deeper level, he felt the first inklings that the Arbiter was right and he had to atone for his lifetime of pomposity and vanity.

Their journey, through Yakai, the Mistwood and into the Cloudspire Mountains toward the realm of the Skyiron Dwarves, is an epic tale unto itself. Across fields and pastures, hills and forests, lakes and rivers, Sun Wukong protected the Arbiter from Mikage Demonspawn, twisted Fae, monstrous creatures, bandits, cutthroats, and natural disasters. He spoke much with her as they traveled and slowly, his nature softened with humility and grace. In turn, she enjoyed his mischievous humor. At last, he realized the error of his ways.

After arriving in the Skyiron Dominion, the Arbiter presented the relic to a consortium of Dwarven sages, and at last revealed its purpose: it was an enchanted codex, containing within the wisdom of ancient Dwarves who built the Arbiter’s Tower and aided her in doing Lumaya’s work combatting the Darkness long ago. Re-learning their ancient history, the Dwarves realized that they had been wrong to isolate themselves from the rest of Teleria. This revelation contributed greatly to their involvement in the nascent Nyresan Union.

As for Sun Wukong, the Arbiter revealed to him that the journey had been a test — she could have lifted his curse all along. But Wukong did not resent her. Rather, he praised her works and rejected his past sins, and with that, the curse of the diadem was broken. Though it was no longer supernaturally attached, he vowed to wear it forever more, as a reminder to never return to his old ways. The great sage now knew wisdom and journeyed back to the Gadiato, determined to spread his teachings to all who would listen, never letting go of the playfulness that won him the Arbiter’s affection.

    THOMAS L: Yes, it’s counting enemy turns too.

    He is easy to counter with Ronda, just block his passive skill and he stays dead.


    In Arena, I see Sun revive not after what would be 3 of Sun’s turns, but after 3 of his opponents have taken their turn. Anybody else see that?

  3. Ayumilove Post author

    @Donna Sterner: I have fixed the 3rd mastery image, so it is in sync with the text below it. Thanks for highlighting the issue!

  4. Donna Sterner

    Your 3rd Mastery Guide has discrepancies.
    The photo does not match the list below it.
    (For the Arena, Campaign, Clan Boss, Dungeons, Faction Wars, Doom Tower)

    Which are the correct ones to choose?

  5. Vaiocore

    Spider should be at least 4, if not 5 star as he “shields” the other legends for alot of damage when re-spawns and gets targeted once up again every round. While Artak and mordecai can do their thing.

    I’ve tuned him in Divine offense, cruel and Perception set. The guy is a beast. Re-spawning nuker

  6. Slayer

    Wow, he was doing just about average, then I changed his gear to Savage. His whole demeanour has changed and he is now a living nightmare to his opponents – well – not including any dead bits in between the living bits – if you know what I mean.

  7. Yo Yo Monkey

    Sun Wukong is the only reason I got passed the 2 Doompriest stage in the Nightmare version of Hallowed Halls 11-5 . It may be that I do not have the best account or be the most game-savvy, but the DUDE is definitely 5* Campaign in my book…

  8. Katie Marshall

    Hi Sir Lochinvar

    I’ve got him paired very effectively with Vergis who can take a butt tonne of damage which is great in Force keep and a good few levels of Fire Knight.

    Anyone who can help me would be appreciated, I’m struggling to decide what blessing to go for Sun plus it doesn’t help if I’ve forgotten Intimidating Presence on any other Skinwalker.

    Thanks in advance 💕

  9. Benny

    Pairing with Lady Annabelle for Dreadhorn is amazing

  10. SirLochnivar

    I’d have to agree that a “B” rating is a bit low. His three turn revival makes him invaluable on teams that have a tank. He’s usually the first one attacked, but that allows the other Champs to get some healing done. Put him with a damage sponge and he will be your own personal tubthumper for a while. That alone will keep you in the fight. I wouldn’t be surprised if the revive got nerfed in future releases.

  11. Transcendance

    He should be 5* on the Magic keep. Stealing the shield and blocking future shield on a 4 rotation makes it super easy on Keep level 20.

  12. Jim Hicks

    From my earlier post, I just realized the Sheep debuff itself enforces the 50% HP on return, and that the sheep is unkillable.

  13. Jim Hicks

    I’ve been levelling him up in Campaign 12-3 and noticed that, when he turns an opponent into a sheep (A2 doesn’t kill) the sheep has 100% HP. When the sheep reverts back they will have 50% HP regardless of what HP they had remaining from the original hit or from hits on the sheep. So, if the A2 doesn’t kill the opponent it may well end up increasing their HP.

  14. Slayer

    A tactic I have used so far is not to waste time killing him if you can manage that. Save him until last then kill him. Depends how he has been build by your enemy and how much damage he can do or not do to your own team. Focus on killng others first to reduce his team and thus your incoming attacks, then get the critter.

  15. Stephen Forest

    The third Masteries map is a duplicate of the second one and needs to match the labels

  16. Peter Gilbert

    The All-rounder masteries chart does not match the description below. at least 2 are wrong.

  17. J

    B seems really low. idk about S yet because we haven’t really explored everything he can do but he’s definitely an A.

  18. ApeReeSki

    Not a game-changer at five stars, but an easy replacement for some others of the same rank.

  19. Dr.Snipes

    I think the revive in 3 turns was miss typed because im sure the mechanics were ment to revive after three rounds not three turns.. because as is if my Sun W dies then its my turn by the time I get to my last capable turn (without extra turn proc) Sun W revives alrdy making it so you damn near have to one hit someones entire team after killing Sun or he just revives again.. Now for PvP with the mechanics the way they are and turn meter skills not working like they do in PvE you’re pretty well screwed against Sun. Only thing I could think of in order to counter this would be stop revive debuffs or Stun/freeze/sleep/sheep making your champion choices limited against him.

  20. Stang_Los

    I think they rates on the dungeon stars are too low.
    IDK If it’s late game ratings or what not because I think I’m still mid game but my Sun Wukong can solo Ice Golem (23 normal), Minotaur (15), paired with my ultimate deathknight just them two can duo spider 25, and dragon 25, (normal), i get great use out of him in clan bosses because of his ability to regenerate after 3 turns he gets about 5 hits per round (dying, coming back, hit, repeat) and solo farms a few levels for me on nightmare. so idk. he’s done a great job for me

  21. Slayer

    Likewise, been dead for way longer than 3 turns an no revival yet???

  22. Madhras

    Every time I’ve run him today, his passive hasn’t happened. Bug?

  23. Just Atemi

    I find it kinda weird how Plarium releases a champion who hard-counters UDK… on UDK’s birthday. Really ironic, don’t you think?

  24. Graywolfe

    Boy this guys is a lot of fun to use, love his style. It is really nice when they come up with something completely new for a champion like this.

    I don’t have great gear for him but he is still doing pretty good everywhere I use him.

  25. Graywolfe

    Looks like Raid goofed, they were originally listing him as Shadowkin and then release him as Skinwalker. Hope they fix that and put him in the right faction.

    He is a lot of fun either way and I can’t wait to get him leveled up.

  26. Cisco Kid

    In the masteries that cover almost everything, the top 3 mysteries in defense tree are not listed the same as what you highlighted. (The first one showed tough skin but you wrote defiant, etc.). I wondered which was correct in those 3 instances.

  27. Tan Nguyen

    i think wukong atleast A rank. i won 10/10 arena battle since i got him. he is very good in arena, even in campaign. and my wukong is just 5*.

  28. Ronald Duane Cupples

    he is Skinwalker not Shadowkin. Just thought you might want to fix that

  29. Tomato Can

    Howdy! Love your work! Thank you!

    Sun Wukong is Skinwalker not Shadowkin.

  30. rddle

    It’s good for beginning players. All knows that we tried at Arena first, but there is no Arbiter yet. This is such situation.

  31. Slayer

    Looks promising so far. Just have to remember that when up against him, and you kill him, you need to win the whole fight in under three turns. Otherwise he pops up again fully restored and ready to go. Sounds like fun.
