Origin: Journey to the West
Age: Technically several thousands years old (As a stone that the Goddess Nu Wa used to fixed Heaven, Wukong was receiving the nurturing from Heaven (yin) and Earth (yang) for thousands of years before being officially born as a monkey). Otherwise 1214-1246 years old at the end of the Journey to the West; Sun Wukong's birth can be dated between 502–488 BCE, during the Zhou dynasty (c. 1046–256 BCE); 342 years old at recorded death (The Book of Life and Death recorded Sun Wukong's age of death at 342 years old); spends 15 earth years as the Heavenly Horse Keeper, which dated to 150–136 BCE. When Sun Wukong is appointed as the Great Sage Equal to Heaven and became the guardian of the immortal peach groves for 177 earth years, dated this ascension to 140–126 BCE. Later Wukong got burned at Laozi's furnace for 49 heavenly days, to which the narrative stated that one heavenly day equal one earth year, meaning Wukong spends 49 years being burned in the furnace, starting between 40–26 BCE. Liu Boquin, a hunter that originally guarded Tripitaka, stated that when Wang Mang usurped the Han's rule, the Five Elements mountain fell from Heaven with a divine monkey clamped beneath it, and Tripitaka's leaves from Chang’an “on the third day before the fifteenth of the ninth month in the thirteenth year of the period Zhenguan”, dated his departure to the year 640 CE. As Wukong was discovered in 640 CE, the Monkey King is technically imprisoned by the Buddha for 617-649 years, marking the Monkey King's age as somewhere around 1200-1232 years old when he was released by Tripitaka. The Journey to the West lasted for 14 years, meaning Sun Wukong is around 1214-1246 years old when he finally attained Buddhahood. Since Sun Wukong was born somewhere between 502–488 BCE, he would have been at least 2500 years old in the modern era (21st century).
