Keeping in mind that I haven't seen the TV series...

The pictures of Xiaoyao seem... less than flattering. In particular, when I saw the bottom right one, 流氓 and 无赖 suddenly came to mind. Then I read some of the comparisons on the forums. It seems that he's rather... pathetic in the TV series. He is what you might call an impetuous, callow youth trying to upload justice without knowledge of his own strength, which is actually quite similar to how he was in the game in terms of personality, but at least he was backed up for a respectable amount of martial prowess. If this is correct, I guess the pictures are fitting.

What do you think of his characterization in the games and the TV series?

Oh, Xiao Yao is pretty likable in the TV series, almost as much as he is in the game. I think Hu Ge's portrayal of Xiao Yao is really well done. You really gotta watch the TV drama =)

he looks a bit weird in that promotional image though..doesn't really look like that.

I do agree with Chibi Jennifer... Hu Ge's portrayal of Xiao Yao was really really good and i think in real life, he is like xiao yao (except the flirting, i think)...

He made many bad decisions.
