As a Spirit Beast she lived in the outer regions of the Star Dou Forest along with her mother and father. Xiao Wu had mentioned that her father was a very powerful Spirit Beast who left for the core of the Star Dou Forest in order to gain more power where powerful spirit beasts reigned and never returned - implying he died. She then lived along with her mother protected by her.

When she was young she met with Da Ming and Er Ming who were small and young as well. They became close friends and Xiao Wu was constantly teased by them. Having grown big and powerful Da Ming and Er Ming left to the core of the Star Dou Forest which caused Xiao Wu to be very unhappy.

She then encountered a human who was injured and on the verge of dying. Curious about humans, Xiao Wu helped her and after her mother returned, although reluctant at first she also helped the woman to recover from her injuries. The woman thus taught Xiao Wu, human language and told her many stories about the human world.

Later on Xiao Wu's mother left to find her father leaving Xiao Wu all alone. 10,000 years passed without the return of her mother. Xiao Wu also left towards the core zone to look for her mother and encountered powerful spirit beasts about to kill her but was saved by Da Ming and Er Ming.

After he tells her everything, Xiao Wu suddenly leaps onto Tang San, her legs winding around his waist, her arms around his neck, embracing him tightly and kisses him on the lips, thus taking his first kiss and giving her first kiss.

Xiao Wu is the 4th to appear from the Shrek Academy Team during the match against the Thunderclap Academy. She quickly defeats the 4th opponent.

En Route to Spirit City[edit | edit source]

En route to Spirit City the convoy of Spirit Masters attending the finals of the tournament is attacked. Chrysanthemum Douluo arrives at the scene to kill the members of the Shrek Academy, but upon discovering Xiao Wu to be the master of the Yearning Heartbroken Red, he becomes respectful and orders to spare her life. They eventually manage to arrive, thanks to the arrival of several Titled Douluos.

Before the start of the finals of the competition she manages to reach the rank 40 bottleneck and goes along with Liu Erlong to find her a Spirit Ring. She then successfully gives the slip to Liu Erlong and tells others that she managed to kill an injured Spirit Beast and obtain its ring.

Finals[edit | edit source]

Right from the start of the match she immediately confronts Dai Weisi, and uses Waist Bow to launch him onto his teammates. When only Zhu Zhuyun is left in the ring, she attacks her and after Zhu Zhuqing's indication to not hurt her heavily, she throws Zhu Zhuyun out of the ring.

During the match against Spirit Hall Academy, she partners up with Ma Hongjun to fight against three of the opposing Battle Spirit Masters. They effectively complement their abilities removing one opponent and confronts the other two. With Tang San's help, they manage to overpower and be victorious.

Following the end of the match, the Yearning Heartbroken Red slips out for a second revealing her true aura that was masked by the flower to the Titled Douluos present. She gives up the rights for the Spirit Bones citing that they are unsuitable for her.

Bibi Dong then issues the command to capture her. Xiao Wu calmly confronts her gaze unflustered. She is then shocked by Tang San's statement that he had known for a long time, what she truly was. Her heart melts with happiness upon his confession of love and everything else becomes insignificant to her.

As she is about to be attacked Tang Hao appears interfering and causing havoc making everyone below the level of rank 70 to faint thus bring away Tang San and Xiao Wu.

After Xiao Wu awakens Tang Hao states that he doesn't oppose their union as his own wife was a spirit beast who became human. However, he tells Xiao Wu to return 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. Tearfully she kisses the unconscious Tang San on the lips and sets out to her home.

Reuniting with Tang San[edit | edit source]

Five years later, Xiao Wu is withDa Ming and Er Ming at Star Lake thinking about Tang San and her friends. Even though she states that she is fine, she wants to reach the mature stage quickly as possible and be with Tang San. She turns pale, when Da Ming mentions the death of her mother. She states she has found the human responsible and will personally carry out her revenge. When asked by Da Ming to tell them a story of the human world, she smiles and imagines the scene when she met first Tang San and begins to tell her tale.

Xiao Wu welcomes Yue Guan, Gui Mei, the Golden Generation and the rest of Spirit Hall's team to Star Dou Forest, while standing on the shoulders of Er Ming. After Yue Guan and Gui Mei seals up Da Ming and Er Ming using their Spirit Fusion, Xiao Wu is left very vulnerable. However to the joy of Xiao Wu, Tang San reveals himself, killing 7 Spirit Sages and embracing Xiao Wu and taking her into the forest.

Tang San manages to kill the 4 Agility Attack Spirit Masters following them, and puts up a distance between the rest of the Spirit Masters. Just as they are about to escape, they are ambushed by a Man Faced Demon Spider who severely hinders their escape causing the rest of the Spirit Sages to catch up and surround them.

Thus ensures a battle to the death between the two parties. Tang San knowing that they won't be able to escape, numbs Xiao Wu's body, throwing her away, suffering a hit to remove his leg spirit bone and handing it to Xiao Wu to fly away and then stabs himself with an arm of the Eight Spider Lances to kill himself. However Xiao Wu not wanting Tang San to die, unbinds the numbness and uses Sacrifice which integrates her soul completely into Tang San, condensing it into his 6th Spirit Ring. She leavers an imprint to Er Ming and Da Ming and reverts to her original form as a spirit beast. As she is about to die she is fed the petals of the Yearning Heartbroken Red which keeps her vitality intact but soulless.

Xiao Wu's Beast And Soul Form[edit | edit source]

Having lost her conscious mind and turned into an adorable fluffy rabbit, she spends most of her time eating and sleeping. She feels extremely at ease when she is with Tang San and usually does not stray away from him.

During Tang San's speed match against Bai He, Tang San inadvertently uses the 6th Spirit Ring which causes the materialization of Xiao Wu, as sentient being albeit in soul form. She although unable to talk or make physical contact, gazes upon Tang San with love and tries to wipe away the tears that esped through his eyes. Tang San realizing using the 6th Spirit Ring causes the dissipation of Xiao Wu's soul energy, retracts the Spirit Ring. Xiao Wu thus rather reluctantly fuses back her soul into the Spirit Ring.

Xiao Wu's rabbit form sensing the Crystal Blood Dragon Ginseng given to Tang San by Bai He, immediately comes out of the Wishful Hundred Treasure Purse. Before Tang San could prevent her, Xiao Wu's rabbit form pounces on it and eats it. As Tang San is about to stop her, Xiao Wu's soul form summons herself from Tang San's 6th Ring, who is pleasantly surprised by the ginseng, tells Tang San that it is okay.

After consuming it Xiao Wu's rabbit form undergoes massive changes with the fur becoming sparkling golden, then red, then crystal red and finally white. Her rabbit form peacefully sleeps while absorbing the effects of Crystal Blood Dragon Ginseng which has a complementary effect with Yearning Heartbroken Red.

Xiao Wu's soul makes another appearance during the end of Tang San's fight against Yang Wudi. She immediately rages out and uses the Eight Stage Drop on Yang Wudi nearly killing him but stopping short because Tang San asks her to be lenient. Afterwards Xiao Wu returns to his body, indicating at Tang San to look at the Wishful Hundred Treasure Purse.

Half Resurrection[edit | edit source]

When Tang San wakes up from his sleep after fighting against Yang Wudi, he finds Xiao Wu, who is entirely naked sleeping on top of him. However she has only half-resurrected and gained her human form and haven't recovered her soul, thus limiting her with basic instincts. Xiao Wu when going to sleep refuses to wear clothes and clings onto Tang San, causing him much distraction.

Xiao Wu accompanies Tang San and the rest to Gengxin City. When Tang San kills all the members of the Spirit Hall branch in Gengxin City and returns, Xiao Wu becomes extremely fearful of him and stays away from him, and thus staying beside Rongrong. Only 3 days later, when the killing aura of Tang San completely fades away does she return back to Tang San. She receives the female armor of Wishful Eight Treasure Soft Armor.

When Tang San was fighting against Qian Renxue and was on the verge of being killed, she materializes her soul and combines it with her body, temporary giving her the ability to be conscious again. She immediately uses the Eight Stage Drop on Qian Renxue, severely injuring her and making her lose consciousness. Afterwards Xiao Wu kisses Tang San and returns back into his body leaving behind her soulless body.

Tang San takes Xiao Wu to Sunset Forest to meet with his mother and father. Tang San asks for permission to marry Xiao Wu from them. Xiao Wu also combines her soul and body temporarily regaining her consiousness calling them mom and dad. Ah Yin drops two golden leaves, wraps them around Tang San and Xiao Wu's ring fingers, producing two golden engagement rings.

Sea God's Island[edit | edit source]

Upon arriving at Sea God's Island, she receives a Red (Peak) level of trials, albeit an unprecedented single Red trial. Her trial is to accompany Tang San throughout his 9 Sea God Trials; essentially 1 trial split into 9 parts. During the first trial, just as it appears they cannot withstand the pressure of the last few steps, Xiao Wu attempts to sacrifice herself again to provide the last push Tang San requires to pass. He stops her and passes both of them by unleashing his newly evolved domain ability.

Before the first trial ends, Xiao Wu gets angry at Tang San for preventing her to help when he confronted the Hundred-Thousand-Year Deep Sea Demon Whale. She threatens to ignore him if he does this again, and even bites him to make her point sink in.

Xiao Wu continues to accompany Tang San during his trials. And while she takes on the improvement trials with or without Tang San's support, she mainly acts as a support for Tang San during battle situations, if she has to take part in the battle at all.
