Sleek Rat, the Challenger is a 2013 Chinese wuxia-mystery television drama series based on Tan Ge's (谈歌) 2006 novel The New Legend of Bai Yutang (新白玉堂傳奇). The show stars Xu Honghao as the "Sleek Rat" Bai Yutang, a superb knight-errant during the 11th-century Song dynasty.[1] Many characters come from either the 19th-century novel The Seven Heroes and Five Gallants or the Generals of the Yang Family legends, but the story is completely new.

The series was first broadcast in Malaysia on TVBS-Asia on January 30, 2013, and in Taiwan on March 3, 2013.[2]
