Tang Da values intelligence and has a forgiving nature. He values ideals and determination.
Tang Da along with 16 Tang Sect's elders arrive at the Hell's Peak to apprehend Tang San who had stolen the secret lore of Tang Sect.
They are astonished to see the Buddha Fury Tang Lotuses, which has not appeared in 200 years. When they sense Tang San had learnt Mysterious Heaven Treasure Record, they become cautious.
As Tang San flings himself off the cliff Tang Da tries to stop him, albeit too late. He orders to find Tang San dead or alive and announces him as a disciple of the Inner Sect as well his only successor.
