Previously, I was reincarnated as a baby fox god in a myth that was based on ancient Chinese mythology. Now I’m not sure if this is true or not. However, it isn’t my job to find out. This article will explain what I’m talking about.
Jiu may be dead all along
Xiao Jiu is an amnesiac young woman with fox-ears. She was sold off as a concubine and robbed of her innocence. In the climax of the film she almost reaches the heavens with a fox devil. In the end, it is Jiang who saves her from the fate she feared.
A divine beast named Four-Alike rescues Jiang from Nine-Tailed and protects her twice. When she eventually reclaims the shard of power she claims to have forged, Nine-Tailed is still after her. This is a sign that Jiu may have been dead all along.
Jiang wears a mystical staff shaped like a whip. It’s actually a divine sword in another form. This device is also capable of producing arcane symbols when it channels power. The Whip of Heaven may be the best weapon Jiang has to offer.
Another weapon of note is the Holy Hand Grenade, a massive golden guillotine. It can obliterate a target’s soul.
The Lock of Destiny, a crimson divine chain, is one of the few ways the gods of Jingxu Hall exert their influence on the mortal world. It allows them to control demons and mortals. It is only broken by a reincarnation of Jiu.
The Holy Hand Grenade is a large golden guillotine which can obliterate a target’s body. It is akin to a meteor impact or nuclear explosion. The most impressive feature is that it is a miracle that it works.
Jiang Ziya’s apotheosis into a god
During the Great War, Jiang Ziya was ordered to slay Nine-Tailed. He hesitated, believing the girl he saw was an illusion. In the end, he bungled the execution. Instead, Jiang became a stalwart commander of the Zhou army. He also saw the corruption of the Heavenly Bureaucracy and was banished to the distant city of Beihai.
Jiang Ziya was a Daoist adept and a military strategist. He fought with enemies from a thousand years ago. After the Great War, he was destined to become a god. He wanted to protect the people of the world.
Jiang Ziya’s character arc is shaped by his mistrust of the divine superiors. He questions their orders, especially that of the Heavenly Master, the supreme ruler of Jingxu Hall. Then, he meets the young woman he saw, Xiao Jiu. The girl’s story is similar to Jiang’s.
Jiang Ziya’s journey of empowerment is all the more courageous because of his commitment to protecting Xiao Jiu. She has been betrayed by the gods. The gods have cast a bounty on her head. But Xiao Jiu is determined to survive. She shows that she has a strong will to live against all odds.
Jiang Ziya’s search for truth becomes connected to his personal quest to find a way to reconcile moral boundaries. His journey of empowerment is fueled by compassion for all people.
In addition to Jiang Ziya, the movie also stars Shen Gongbao, a shapeshifting Immortal who acts as his friend. Shen Gongbao becomes Jiang’s loyal friend after he saves him from Nine-Tailed. He also reveals that the Heavenly Master is only a cog in the Celestial Bureaucracy.
Jiang Ziya fights off the fox spirit
Having been banished to the mortal realm, Jiang Ziya is out to fight off the fox spirit. He meets a young girl who remembers nothing of her past and has fox ears. She claims that her human father lives near a sacred mountain. But the young woman has forgotten everything, including her true identity. She thinks she is a concubine of the Emperor.
Jiang Ziya has one line in the movie that stands out. He asks her if she has been reincarnated. Jiu says she has been sold as a concubine. Jiang Ziya sees a vision of her as Nine-Tailed. Jiang Ziya decides to go after the girl.
The fox spirit, or Fox-Devil, is the most powerful demon in Chinese mythology. Fox-Devils were thought to have disappeared after the Great War. But it seems they were hunted to extinction, and their minions were killed.
Jiang Ziya learns that Nine-Tailed is not just a demon. She was promised deification by the gods. She also learned about the corruption in the Heavenly Bureaucracy. This leads to Jiang’s decision not to be a god.
Jiang Ziya decides to follow the girl to Mount Youdu. He discovers that the girl is actually the true hero. It turns out that her father is still alive. Jiang Ziya decides to take her on a quest to Mount Youdu. This leads to Jiang’s discovery of the fox spirit’s conspiracy.
Jiu’s ear is from a refugee who attempted to kill her thinking she was a fox devil
Xiao Jiu is a young woman with fox-ears. She is a refugee from the Great War. Her ear was cut by an attempt to kill her believing she was a Fox Devil. Jiu’s ear reminds Jiu of her old doll.
Jiang Ziya was set to be deified after the Great War. But when she sees how corrupt the Heavenly Bureaucracy is, she decides not to become a god. Instead, she becomes a loyal friend to Jiang. The Heavenly Master also instructs Jiang to do things without mercy. Despite her defiance, Jiang becomes a god in the end.
Jiang Ziya trains under the Heavenly Master. He learns that the Lock of Destiny is only broken when a person reincarnates. He also learns that Nine-Tailed was betrayed by the gods and was tricked into starting the Great War.
Jiang is given the mission to kill Nine-Tailed. He is also given a map to Youdu, which is where Nine-Tailed was bound. Jiang is also sent to Beihai. There, he encounters a fish-demon bartender who is holding mystical artifacts from the Great War. He is also sent to the Ruins of Return, where vengeful Fox Devils are kept.
Nine-Tailed is the last living Fox Devil. She wanted to take revenge on Jingxu Hall and get back at the gods for all of the destruction. She is also willing to condemn the entire race for shooting at godhood.
Jiang Ziya executes a fox spirit
Traditionally, Jiang Ziya is depicted as a middle-aged man. The character arc in this movie is shaped by mistrust of his divine superiors. He is a celestial army commander, and the forces of heaven want him to become a god.
The film opens in the aftermath of a massive war. The Shang Dynasty has been swept away, and society has rebuilt itself into the Zhou Dynasty. This gives the movie a sense of immediacy.
In a vision, Jiang Ziya sees the Nine-Tailed Fox demon. The demon has been bringing evil to humankind. He has absorbed the vengeful spirits of other Fox Devils. He is now ready to condemn the whole race for a shot at godhood.
Jiang Ziya is hesitant to execute the demon. He thinks it is wrong to sacrifice an innocent life. But he has been entrusted with the duty of destroying the demon. He is about to do it when he accidentally summons the demon.
The fox spirit regains its power and attacks the Gate of Reincarnation. Jiang Ziya must decide whether it is better to destroy the demon or save the innocent girl.
The fox spirit is actually a girl. Her soul was captured by the demon. She was turned into a scapegoat. The demon uses illusions to manipulate the minds of supernatural beings. The devil is expert at such illusions.
In the second half of the movie, Ziya takes a moral stand. He decides that he can’t kill an innocent girl. He must free himself from the demon’s sorceress. The movie has an absorbing story with plenty of action. The animation is colorful and well done.
Jiang Ziya summons the fox spirit
Among the various Chinese mythologies, one of the most popular is about Jiang Ziya. He is a celestial army commander who is on the cusp of becoming the leader of all gods once he kills the Nine-Tailed Fox demon. The story is based on the 16th century Chinese novel Investiture of the Gods.
Jiang Ziya is a character who has an amazing one-liner. In the film, he is given the assignment of killing the Nine-Tailed Fox demon. He has no problem with this task, but he hesitates to actually carry it out. He eventually decides that it is not worth the sacrifice of an innocent life.
In the movie, he gets a vision of a girl whose ears resemble those of a fox demon. Jiang sees that the girl is actually an illusion created by the fox spirit. He decides to save the girl, even though she will be killed if he kills her.
In order to save the girl, he must kill the Nine-Tailed Fox demon. In order to do this, he must free the demon’s sorceress. He must also decide whether it’s worth the price of one life to become the leader of all the gods.
Jiang Ziya has a fantastic plot and non-stop action. He also has a surprising amount of morals. For instance, he is supposed to kill the Nine-Tailed Fox demon but he is unwilling to kill the innocent girl.
