Sun Wukong (孙悟空), also known as The Monkey King is one of the main characters in the Tang Dynasty Chinese epic, Journey To The West. Born out of a mythical stone, he has the following capabilities:

a) immense strength - can lift 8,100 kg of weight with ease

Just like Hanuman, the Monkey God in Hinduism, Sun Wukong is also worshiped as a deity by Taoists as The Monkey God.
