The Heroic Oppai DragonEdit

He was mentioned again in Volume 7, this time by Tannin, who at the time was angry at Midgardsormr, claiming that he cannot stand lazybones like Midgardsormr and Yu-Long[3].

Yu-Long made his official appearance in Volume 9 along with the original Sun Wukong, with Sun Wukong ordering him to aid Saji/Vritra against the mind-controlled Yasaka much to Yu-Long's displeasure but agreed after Sun Wukong says that he will treat him to Kyoto's cuisine. [2]

In Volume 12, Yu-Long was mentioned by Sun Wukong, after the latter had treated Vali, to be outside the Gremory castle, waiting for him.

In Volume 22, Yu-Long in miniature form participates in the opening ceremony of the Azazel Cup, while also weeping for being forced to join Sun Wukong's team.
