Is Feng Wei's hobby really killing people, or is that a deduction based from what he did during Tekken 5? --RaiJinX

It's most likely a deduction. He's only killed one person (his master). He just attacked the others (Asuka's father and Lei's close friends). I think his hobby should be changed to "Searching for the "Secrets of God Fist" scrolls". JunKazamaFan 15:49, 5 September 2007 (PDT)
Okay, I've changed it. JunKazamaFan 15:50, 5 September 2007 (PDT)
Thanks. --RJX
Actually his mere hobby would be more like "challenging strong opponents" since hobbies aren't the same thing as goals. Orcryst 10:39 16 September 2007 (GMT-08:00)
Ok. I put it there. --RaiJinX

Fighting Style[edit]

Should Feng's fighting style be listed with Southern Fist in brackets?


Where does the bit of info about Feng being a former monk come from? I've read the history of Feng's article and it was put there by someone without an account who edited other articles and wrote things like Leo is Lilly's brother and Zafina is a High School Student. The only things that would make someone think Feng was a monk are his customisations. --KeyoZ


Kenpo is the Japanese word for Kung fu. Is Feng's style based on Shaolin Quan, Wing Chun, Hung Gar? Just thinking. :D

Kenpou is the Japanese word for martial arts; it does not specify origin. Chuugoku Kenpo (Chinese martial arts) is the Japanese word for Kung Fu. I do not, at this time, know his actual style as I haven't bothered looking into it, but a type of Shaolin Wushu seems the most likely. --Hecko 12:01, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

Actually, Kenpo literally meanse fist law (if you read the use the kanji) and Kung Fu literally meansmeans hard work. Feng's style is actually traditional Chinese Kenpo which in Chinese is Quanfa (literally fist law, the same characters as in Japanese) But there are some moves that are not Quanfa (or Kenpo, which even language suits) which lead to speculation upon other arts such as Shoalin Kung Fu . -- Shinzen

拳法 is a compound, so translating the kanji seperately would be incorrect. A more correct translation would be "principle of the fist". Also "quan fa" is not very specific, as in China, it's a collective term for ALL Chinese martial arts, of which there are thousands of variations off. So with this question, it's not a very helpful reply since he's asking for the specific type. It's roughly the equivalent of pointing at a picture of a puffin, asking what animal it is, and getting the response "a bird". Not wrong, but not exactly helpful either. --Hecko 12:51, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

So your telling me that 空手 is a compound, thus not meaning "empty hand?"
Actually Quanfa is it's own art with many offspring arts, similar to karate. Thus are you saying that karate is not karate? That is a collective term for a major number of japanese martial arts? I know this as I study Chinese Kenpo, i.e. Quanfa.

Yes, I am. For the same reasons that 手紙 means "letter" and not "hand paper", that 自転車 means "bicycle" and not "self revolve car", that 日本 means "Japan" and not "sun book", etc. This is why you do not translate compounds one kanji at the time. Try thinking about it logically; if you want to say you practice karate, what are you conveying? I practice 空手 (compound, i.e "a martial art") or I practice 空手 (non-compound, i.e. "empty hand", which makes no sense to say).

Again, I emphasize that he's looking for a specific branch of martial arts. In simpler terms, since you brought in the Karate comparison yourself, it would be like the difference in "Karate" (generic term) vs. Wadō-ryū (specific style of karate; the type of answer he's looking for). --Hecko 17:50, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

I know what you are saying and understand, trust me I know. But what I'm saying is that when it first started, there was Kung fu, right? Then it branched off, correct? So I am saying that it is the traditional form of Quanfa (Chinese Kenpo) that's all. - Shinzen Could someone please tell me his specific fighting style in real life? Chinese kenpo seems very generic.

It's most likely Nan Chuan a.k.a. Southern Fist.

Personality section[edit]

Should there be a section of Feng's personality? Angie Y. 01:04, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Not really. No offense, but he really has little personality. He's just someone who wants to be superior in the world like Jin. The only personality he does have is respecting his elders.
