The Legend of Hero is a 2005 Taiwanese television series adapted from the Hong Kong manhua series Chinese Hero: Tales of the Blood Sword by Ma Wing-shing. The series was produced by Young Pei-pei and starred Peter Ho and Ady An in the leading roles.


Hua Yingxiong is forced to flee from his homeland in China after killing the Westerners who murdered his parents. He leaves behind his childhood friend and love interest, Chen Jieyu. After escaping, he mistakenly boards a ship for labourers and is sold to work in America. While in America, Hua sees his fellow countrymen being oppressed and bullied by foreigners. He is unable to tolerate that and stands up against the foreigners, but is attacked by them. Just then, he is rescued by Jin Ao, a powerful swordsman. Jin accepts him as a student and teaches him martial arts. Hua uses his skills to survive in a dangerous environment, where he faces gang wars, murder, treachery and racial discrimination.
