Introducing Sun Wu Kong

We now know all components to build ! Yay! Incidentally, the banana and the shovel can be combined to form Sun Wu Kong, the monkey king. Swoooosh! Combine! So four, , will be the combination of and . Now Sun Wu Kong isn't only a character component, but also a meaningful character on its own (pun fully intended).

's pronunciation "er2" involves Einstein and the space station, just like , but because it goes with the second tone, the location is the entrance of the space station. That's because the second tone is always represented by the entrance of a location.
