Alternate Ending

I was wondering what you all thought about the ending of Chinese Paladin.. did you really dislike the ending, and wish Ling Er could be with Xiao Yao? or You think its better that she dies because it makes the story so much more touching, dramatic and memorable? Or you prefer her alive since the story would still have been just as memorable?

Share your opinion!!

Today I made a bunch of animated gifs of the last episode to put into the fansite, and oh my goodness.... it's just SOO sad..no matter how many times Ive seen it....

At one stage, I thought it was fated she died.. and she died in the game (which was somewhat faithful), which was also VERY sad..but I then... it would have been sooo much better if she didn't die, so I voted that she didn't die.

After all that they went thru..and they still couldn't be together?? ><

Were many people spoiled that Ling Er gets killed before they even got to the part? I had a feeling she was going to die since she did in the game... but there was a little bit of hope..despite it being spoiled in the ending credits when it shows Ling Er and the pool of blood ;_;


simms7:
Hmm.. my ending would be XY reviving Ling'er and they live happily ever after :D
zzxiaoyaozz:
if only Xiao yao and ling er didnt die in the last ep then the show will be much more romantic i think......

isn't the ending.. is a bit different from the game?

I thought Yue Ru will live.. to take care of Ling'er and XY's daughter.

hmmmh... I need to learn Chinese...

In the game:

Ling Er clash with the EIGHT/Nine-headed water demon and then ascend to heaven while Xiao Yao stare at the snake staff on the top of the hill as if he is looking at Ling Er for the one last time...

Yue Ru isn't alive, the 39 bug formula is just to revive her body...So she is literally a walking dead...

What?? a walking dead?
umm... I didn't know about that.. *again coz I don't know chinese*
From what I remember from 1995, (the DOS game btw), the ending picture is that Yue Ru was holding the baby..

so of course I thought: aah.. she's alive... :)

Yea... when I first played it I assume Yue Ru was actually alive, like a miracle or something, but after another play of the game I realised Sheng Gu starts talking about a possibility that Yue Ru is "not dead" but "not alive" either.. o.o

So sad ><

hmm...of course everyone wans happy ending. but i tink this ending of ling er died and the 2 lovebirds who cannot be gtg in peace after a long time..is nice ba. i mean it's much memorable.

maybe they shouldn't make the rest die or disappear too much. too much deaths for xiaoyao to handle. like make it so depressing. *lol*

but thn again, all the deaths had something to do with 'tao' rite? so maybe quite ok.

Sad/Happy Ending

I would prefer a happy ending. I just find it kind of weird when there is a sad ending to this show even though a sad ending would make it more memorable. If Ling Er did not die, she will live happily with Xiao Yao. Family reunion. No more fightings will exist (all the bad people are dead).

I would like a happy ending with yue ru. In the game she is alive, this not dead but not alive stuff is caused ba a fanficton or in in the later version maybe. Because in the 95 version she lived if I remember it right.
