Lore[edit | edit source]
"I treated Sun Wukong as my brother, but he wanted to cut my leg off and cook it in a stew."
After all these years, Toro still held a grudge against Sun Wukong. As the master of Emerald Mountain and Thunder Mountain, Toro was one of the very few heroes in the world capable of putting up a fight against Sun Wukong, thanks to his own magic abilities. The mighty Monkey King, who even 100,000 celestial warriors and thousands of talismans could not tame, was willing to bow to Toro out of pure admiration. Eventually, the two became sworn brothers.
But Toro could have never imagined what happened next: Sun Wukong killed Immortal Ruyi Toro's brother, to protect that band of monks journeying to the West for scriptures. Then he kidnapped Red Boy, Toro's son, and sent him to Guanyin. Finally, he got involved in the love-triangle between the Iron Fan Princess, the Jade-Faced Fox and Toro.
"We are sworn brothers, so why is he always messing with me?" Toro was angry and really wanted to give the stupid monkey a beating. But Wukong had become a God, and may not even acknowledge Toro even if they met again. So Toro was was glad to have found out that Sun Wukong would join in the battle.
"Where is that stupid monkey? Let me teach him a lesson with my fists."
