Wuxia martial arts novels are commonly known as fairy tales for adults. The four elements of tales “children, stories, fancy, interesting”, besides “children”, basically co-exist in the wuxia martial arts novel. It was written for mature readers and the imaginary space was also created for adults, so it is reasonable be regarded as fairy tales for adults. Adults also needs fairy tales. Need creates demand and wuxia martial arts novels appear. It offers a fancy, fictional, interesting, ideal, and fairylands created by adults themselves. These are the essence of wuxia martial arts novels. The process of the establishment of adult fairy tales is different from that of children fairy tales. Based on adult fairy tales, wuxia martial arts novels simplified the social contractual relationship, weakened the law enforcement, and magnified the ethical ideology. The jiang hu martial arts world set in a fancy, surrealistic ancient time was not truly unrealistic. Thus it functions for retreat, recreation, compensation, free from worry, purification and nostalgic purpose. Nevertheless the created wuxia world needs to further combine with the real life. Depicting the humanity, investigating the ideology and practices of wuxia deeply, the fairy tales for adults will be more meaningful.
