Names & Aliases
Lang San (浪三; literally Wave Three) means the third child of the Lang Family. This is Three Waves’ lay name. Occasionally Three Waves will address himself as Wave (浪某; làngmǒu).
Mad Sabre Three Waves
‘Mad Sabre’ (狂刀; Kuáng Dāo) refers to his special skill, «Seventy Two Paths of the Mad Sabre».
‘Three Waves’ (三浪; Sān Làng) is a reminder to himself to not try and seek death three times in a row, as that would likely be too dangerous even for him.
Mad Sabre Four Waves
- “From now on, please call me Four Waves, thank you.„
While waiting for the Thousand Years’ Third Saint’s sermon, the members of the Nine Provinces (1) Group discussed the relationship between having ‘number three’ in a cultivator’s Dao Name or title and death seeking tendencies. Another member of the Death Seeking Army, Calculator of Black Trigram Copper Trigram, who was ranked third in gold, silver, copper, iron was cited as an example.
Seven also cited the Heavenly River’s Su Clan Three, who loves to seek death non-stop. In order to correct his death seeking problem, Three changed his own Dao Name to Four, thus solving the problem once and for all.
Mad Sabre Seven Waves
- “Aaah~~ later on, please~ Aah~ call me~ Mad – Sabre – Seven – Waves ~~ Aaah„
During the 4 + 28 Black Dragon Tribulation, Three Waves told the members of the Nine Provinces (1) Group to call him as ‘Seven Waves’ right after Medicine Master and Purple Mist talked about the number seven as being a lucky number.
[Random Number] Waves
During a discussion with Spirit Venerable Spirit Butterfly in the Spirit Butterfly Island, the Venerable mistakenly called Soft Feather’s name instead of Dao Name of the day, Transforming Tribulation.
Three Waves then mused to himself that if he had a daughter, and the daughter wants to have a different Dao Name every day, he won’t have any problem, as he can just change the numbers from One Waves to 365 Waves, 666 Waves or even A Trillion Waves.
Lang Ba (浪霸; Làng Bà, lit. ‘Wave Tyrant’) was the stage name Three Waves used in his films.
Three Waves took the name and appearance of a Seventh Stage Spirit Venerable, Blue Wave when he was infiltrating the Beast Realm’s Wide Courtyard Society. However, Three Waves felt that the name of Blue Wave is mocking him.
As a Chaotic Good, Mad Sabre Three Waves acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him. He makes his own way, but he’s kind and benevolent. He believes in goodness and right but has little use for laws and regulations. He hates it when people try to intimidate others and tell them what to do. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society.
Nine Provinces (1) Group
Death Seeker Army
Everything was good about Three Waves, he’s friendly, loyal, and loves helping others, so his relationship with others was pretty good. The only problem is he liked to speak pervertedly, in a way that invites death. It turns out that this fella’s luck was so low that it gives people goose bumps, he always couldn’t help but invite death from recklessness, and the ones he offended were always big time seniors. Since those big time seniors were usually bored without any source of entertainment, they were naturally very happy to torture Mad Sabre Three Waves who personified entertainment delivered to their front doors.
However, whenever he seeks death, he’ll ensure he still have some leeway. For example, when he buried Seven, Medicine Master and Purple Mist, he purposely buried Medicine Master and Purple Mist in the same tomb, and wrote that ‘Medicine Master and Purple Mist husband and wife was buried together’ on the tombstone. In this regard, Purple Mist became his safety insurance.
Despite his death seeking tendencies, Three Waves has an inventive and creative side to him. He is known to create a lot of small but practical magecrafts. However, Mad Sabre tends to be wordy in his explanation of the magecrafts.
Battle of Severing Immortal
At first, Yellow Mountain was about to give his robe to Three Waves. However, Yellow Mountain noticed Lychee was only a thin silk nightgown. As long as there was a little wind, she would be completely exposed. So, Yellow Mountain gave his robe to Lychee instead, and leaving Three Waves in his birthday suit.
Extremely embarrassed, Three Waves start calling Yellow Mountain as ‘someone who put hoes before bros’. Angered, Yellow Mountain used an illusion magecraft to change Three Waves’ appearance into a baboon.
Upon seeing Soft Feather and Doudou sitting together with the Chu Aristocratic Family, Three Waves knows they are friendlies, so he turned his attention towards the Void Sword School. Three Waves introduced himself as the battle loving Heavenly River’s Su Clan Seven to the leader of the Void Sword School, Xu Zheng. Three Waves then forcibly ‘borrowing’ Xu Zheng’s robe, leaving the latter in his boxer.

Just like the rest of the members, Three Waves participated in the filming of the «Dharma-Ending Battle», credited on screen as Wave Tyrant.
The Wedding of Medicine Master and Purple Mist
Unbeknownst to Three Waves, Medicine Master (and it seems everyone else) was aware of it. So when Three Waves tried to inform Medicine Master about it, he was silenced immediately by the very person he tried to warn.
The half-drunk and half-awake Song Shuhang had lost his ability to think. Not even he himself knew what he was doing. At this time, he had only one thought in mind: he wanted to bring the dying Mad Sabre Three Waves to the crematorium and have the latter cremated. Afterward, Shuhang would fulfil Three Waves’ dying wish and sprinkle his ashes in the ocean, and look at them as they disappeared amidst the churning oceanic waves.
Fortunately for Three Waves, after he was carried around 200 metres by Song Shuhang, the latter fall to the ground in the middle of the road. Mad Sabre Three Waves was flung away from Shuhang’s shoulder.
True Monarch Falling Dust handed him a medical bill. There were nearly 200 medicinal materials listed in total. Each of them was very expensive, and it would be quite difficult for Mad Sabre Three Waves to pay everything with the wealth at his disposal. But according to what was written at the end of the bill, someone had already paid the bill for him, and the name of this person was… Mysterious Maiden Gate’s Skylark.
«My Wanton And Unrestrained Life»

While waiting for Skylark to arrive, Three Waves played around on a mountain peak. Suddenly, a gigantic flying sword hit the mountain peak he was on, throwing him into a valley, severely injuring him. Fortunately for him, he fell on top of a field of Thousand Years Beast Mushroom. Due to these mushrooms cushioning his impact, he survived his fall.
