|“||Using top class materials to make artifacts, that is not the best blacksmith, at most it is only an accomplishment. The best blacksmith will create artifacts using common materials.||”|
—Tang Hao, on blacksmithing.
A middle-aged man, his appearance seemingly older. His stature was still extraordinarily large and stalwart. His eyes have a sleepy and dazed look. He has messy hair that looks just like a birds nest and a beard.
Tang Hao was in a depression for a long period of time following the death of his wife, Ah Yin. He seemingly gave up on his life but it is shown that he cares much for his son. He is without fear and stands against injustice.
Born into the Clear Sky Clan he was considered a genius spirit master along with his older brother, Tang Xiao. Soon the siblings became leading figures of the Clear Sky School's younger generation. Tang Hao cherished his older brother as he cared for him and looked after in every way possible. Because the clan always put strength first, neither of the brothers married. By the time he was 30 years old, Tang Hao broke through the seventieth rank. The brothers were then ordered by their father to go to the outside world and gain experience for ten years. Before they left, Tang Hao was declared successor of the Clear Sky Clan.
On their 5th year in the outside world, they met Ah Yin. The brothers fell in love with her. The three of them became sworn siblings. For the next three years, they traveled the whole continent. Caring for his younger brother, Tang Xiao left Ah Yin and Tang Hao and went back to the clan. Tang Hao was shocked when Ah Yin told him that she was a 100,000-year-old spirit beast entering the mature stage. However, his love for her surpassed everything and thus he confessed his love for her. Happy that the one she always liked was him, he decides to take her back to the clan knowing that his father would understand the situation. On their way, they were attacked by a Titled Douluo from Spirit Hall. Even though his spirit power was lower than the Titled Douluo's, Tang Hao broke his leg and ran away with Ah Yin knowing that he couldn't return to the Clear Sky Clan.
They got married; however, they were still fleeing and hiding. Time passed and one day Ah Yin became pregnant with Tang San. By the time Tang San was born, Tang Hao's spirit power was eighty-ninth ranked. On that day, Spirit Hall came with numerous spirit masters. The previous Supreme Pontiff led them personally and had brought two Titled Douluo. A battle ensnared. Soon Tang Hao was seriously injured, and the battle was about to draw to conclusion until Ah Yin walked out holding Tang San. She told the Pontiff that it is impossible to kill her unless she kills herself. She proposed that they let Tang Hao and Tang San go and that she will come with them.
She then walked over Tang Hao, placed Tang San in her arms and killed herself becoming Tang Hao's final ring. Not only did it heal his injuries, but greatly increased his strength. He injured one of the two Titled Douluo and killed the other. The supreme pontiff was seriously injured from his attacks. Sparing their lives, Tang Hao dragged his injured body away and planted his Ah Yin's seed at the place they got married. He was then excluded from the sect, to prevent reprisals from Spirit Hall. After this, he went into seclusion in Holy Spirit Village becoming a blacksmith and a drunkard.
Holy Spirit Village Edit
He is seen in the Holy Spirit Village as a drunkard who doesn't care for much, living his life as a blacksmith with his son Tang San.
After finding out Tang San has Blue Silver Grass as his spirit, he becomes emotional and then shocked seeing him with Twin Spirits. He becomes extremely proud of Tang San and tells him not to put any spirit rings on the Clear Sky Hammer. Before Tang San's departure to Nuoding Academy, he teaches him some blacksmithing lore.
A year later he leaves the Holy Spirit Village, a few days before Tang San arrives home for his vacation. He leaves him a message saying he wants Tang San to become stronger and at the same time not and that he left in order to reclaim some of his former possessions.
Nuoding Academy & Shrek Academy Edit
Spirit City Edit
Following the conclusion of Continental Advanced Spirit Master Academy Elite Tournament with Shrek Academy's victory, when Spirit Hall orders to seize Xiao Wu and Tang San stands in the way, Tang Hao reveals himself floating in mid-air.
He stands tall without even in the slightest being deterred by the pressure of three Titled Douluo and reveals his Spirit Rings. He then uses his Tool Spirit Avatar infused with his 100,000 year Spirit Ring attacking the Supreme Pontiff Palace which is however stopped by the combined effort of 7 Titled Douluo of Spirit Hall causing all Spirit Masters under Rank 70 to faint. Tang Hao then brings away Tang San and Xiao Wu with him.
When Xiao Wu wakes up Tang Hao states that he doesn't oppose their union as his own wife was a spirit beast who became human. However, he asks Xiao Wu to go back to her home and be under the protection of her powerful spirit beast friends until the time comes when Tang San is able to really protect her against anything. Thus Xiao Wu leaves, leaving Tang Hao alone with Tang San.
When Tang San awakens, Tang Hao reassures Xiao Wu and the other Shrek Devils are fine. He then reveals the truths about the Spirit Beast Evolution and explains why Xiao Wu is currently very weak. He reveals to Tang San, he will have him undergo a set of training and after its completion, he will reveal all the truths about his past. Thus they set out.
Tang Hao's Training Edit
Tang Hao leaves with Tang San traveling on foot, barely resting and always traversing difficult terrains making Tang San always fully exert his Spirit Power. After a half a month of traveling, they arrive at a mountain range which they climb and comes to an area with a waterfall.
Tang Hao then makes Tang San absorb the Focusing Wisdom Skull and stands guard for three days. After Tang San finishes the process of absorption he seals Tang San's Spirit Power and gives him a metal forging hammer and tells him to use it on the waterfall while on top of a boulder and complete the 81 strikes of the Disorder Splitting Wind Hammer on the waterfall. Then he creates a cave for himself with a single strike and goes inside to cultivate.
Tang San completes the stage in 3 months which astonishes Tang Hao, as he who was the greatest genius of the Clear Sky School took half a year to complete this process. Then Tang Hao throws away the metal hammer and gives him a wooden hammer and tells him to redo the process which takes Tang San a further 9 months. The next year despite Tang San having reached the 50th rank bottleneck, he is made to continue his training using the Clear Sky Hammer.
Then Tang Hao takes Tang San to an ancient forest and tells him to follow the voice of Blue Silver King. Upon his return, Tang Hao is shocked at his change in appearance and the resemblance he bears to his wife. Tang Hao, overjoyed, faints due to his severe injuries which are discovered by Tang San. Tang San then makes him promise not to fight any more battles by threatening to take his own life.
Tang Hao then takes him to a tavern with rough men, and following the drinking of a Bloody Mary which turns out to be human blood, he orders to kill all the men who jeered at Tang San for throwing up after drinking it. After Tang San is done killing them, he disappears letting Tang San enter into the Slaughter City. Nearly two years later, he appears at Slaughter City to check on his son's progress. It is then revealed he is one of the two existing Deathgods of the current age. Tang Hao secretly infiltrates Slaughter City and watches the progress of Tang San. After Tang San exits Hells Road, he comes to pick up his son. He then takes his son Heaven Dou City, to cleanse his aura, so that he can hide in the Spirit Master World.
Moon Pavilion Edit
He brings Tang San to the Moon Pavilion. He asks to see the head of the Moon Pavilion but he is asked to leave by the Manager for his inelegance, causing Tang San loses his calm. He instructs him not to kill and not to destroy the place and Tang San easily subdues the 2 lackeys under the Manager. When the Manager is also suppressed and Tang San releases his Deathgod Domain, the head comes out to see the disturbance. She after hearing the words spoken by the assistance, immediately breaks down crying and hugging Tang Hao. Tang Hao consoles his sister Tang Yuehua and leaves Tang San in her care to remove murderous aura emitted by Tang San.
Ah Yin Edit
After arriving back at the mountains where he trained his son, he proceeds to cut off his left leg and right arm at the base. After a year, Tang San finally returns to the waiting Tang Hao. He then explains that he cut off his leg and arm himself. He then tells Tang San to come with him to place, where he will tell him about his past.
He takes Tang San to show the remnant of his mother growing again as a Blue Silver Grass with the special characteristic of Blue Silver Empress. He reveals that he wishes to spend the remainder of his life next to her albeit he might never be able to see her human form in his lifetime. The growth spurt and the awakening of the consciousness causes Tang Hao to be happy extremely and he is further excited when Tang San states he might be able to accelerate his mother's growth. Tang Hao then hands Tang San 3 spirit bones, one of which is of Ah Yin, that she left for Tang San. He allows him to fuse with it and asks to return the other 2 to the Clear Sky Clan.
Thus they travel to the Ice and Fire Yin Yang Well in the Sunset Forest, where she is replanted in the optimal spot. Tang San then helps Tang Hao to stabilize his cultivation and produces a tonic to help him stay at the Ice and Fire Yin Yang Well without any repercussions.
Following Tang San's peril and near death situation, both Tang Hao and Ah Yin are able to sense Tang San's sadness and becomes sad themselves for facing the same situation as them.
Before Tang San leaves with the Shrek Seven Devils for the Sea God Island, he visits Tang Hao and Ah Yin (still in plant form) and asks for their blessings to get engaged with Xiao Wu. Both Tang Hao and Ah Yin happily give them blessings, and Ah Yin uses her power to produce two golden rings from her leaves placing them on Tang San and Xiao Wu's ring fingers.
