Of all the first emperors of each dynasty,

Emperor Zhao Kuang Yin was

the most magnanimous.

At his mother's last request,

he gave his throne to his brother,

Zhao Guang Yi, and then

to Guang Yi's son, De Wang.

Kuang Yin passed his throne

to his brother, Guang Yi.

It had been rumored that he was

killed by his brother in the palace.

This had remained a mystery ever since.

But when Guang Yi became emperor,

he forced Kuang Yin's son, De Zhao,

to kill himself.

De Zhao's son, Zhao Jue,

was crowned Prince of Xiangyang.

He was eager for revenge

and planned for a revolt.

In his own residence

he built the House of Traps.




Brother, are you all right?

Brother, I am fine, chase him.

Too late.


Who is it?

A robber.


Just by the flying dart

and the light technique,

one can tell that

the well-renowned Brother Hua is here.

Brother Deng.

This is Hua Chong, the Butterfly.

Everyone must have heard about him.

Master Hua...

Brother Hua, since you knew I was here,

why did you still shoot the flying dart?

Aren't you concerned

about hurting your friend?

It's because I knew you were here

that these four darts didn't hit people.

You think I'd miss?

All right, let's sit down and talk.

Brother Hua, this packet is...

It's a gift for you.

I already know what it is.

The jade horse stolen from the palace.

There's a warrant out from Kaifeng

for the robber's arrest.

It was just a joke, that day at the banquet.

I didn't know you'd take it so seriously.

This is nothing.

I just don't understand

why you are here

instead of at the Deng residence.

This horse has caused a sensation

all over the country.

You sure have the guts to steal it,

but I don't have the guts to keep it

at the Deng residence.

Do you see what this place is?

Federation of the Righteous.

This belongs to the Prince of Xiangyang.

He's the cousin of the Emperor.

If the jade horse is hidden

at the Prince's residence,

even Bao Zheng wouldn't dare to come

and search the place.

Since the birthday of the Prince

is drawing near,

I'll decide for you

and send this to the Prince

as a birthday gift.

Brother, that's very considerate of you!

The Prince arrives.

Al FEl


Your Highness.

No need to stand on ceremony.

I suppose this is the renowned Butterfly.

Yes, he is my sworn brother, Hua Chong.

Greetings to Your Highness.


Please, don't stand on ceremony.

You are my distinguished guests.

Please have a seat and chat.

Thank you, Your Highness.

Brother, this is Shen Zhong Yuan,

a great kung fu hero,

and also the Prince's think tank.

Nice to meet you.

I've heard a lot about you.

My sincere respects.

You're too kind.


Please have a seat.

I've invited Deng Che,

chief of the Deng Fortress,

to preside over

the Federation of the Righteous.

I've heard from Hero Deng

that he's your sworn brother.

Yes, Brother Deng's business is mine, too.

I'll do whatever it takes.


I'm willing to work for Your Highness,

even risk my life.

It'd be best for Hero Hua to join us.

There're heroes all over

who have pledged loyalty to me.

Once the provisions and ammunition

are ready, we can start the revolt.

The pledges of our allies

will be put in the House of Traps.

Hero Shen will bring Hero Hua

to sign the pledge later.

Yes, sire.

Your Highness, the jade horse

Brother Hua stole is an imperial treasure.

Maybe it's a sign that

Your Highness will be crowned.

For security, may we lock it up

in the House of Traps

and bring it out for viewing
