The story took place in two main areas: a heaven or place of the gods and also at a school. At the god place, all the gods were there. The school was where Wei-Chen Sun and Jin Wang went to school.
Conflict Pt. 2
After Jin (Danny) changed, he began to get visits from his relative Chin-Kee from China. When Chin-Kee is there he ruins Danny's life by embarrassing him. That is why he had to go to 3 schools. The third year he came, Danny finds out who his relative really is. Chin-Kee is the monkey god or the father of Wei-Chen Sun.
Danny finally can not stand Chin-Kee anymore, so he get in a fight with him and punches off his head. Danny finds that the monkey king is disguised as Chin-Kee but is really the monkey king.
