- He tells he took the Appearance Recovery Pill to alter his appearance and tells Fa Ma and group that they cannot harm him as it would seem like the Alchemist Assocation is killing competitors.He then tells that he'll take the spot of the champion only to be chided by Fa Ma saying that it may not happen.
- In the final test of the tournament, he creates a Purple Heart Barrier Breaking Pill which increases the strength of a Da Dou Shi by one star or two stars if two pills are used. This pill is a peak tier four pill, better than the ones refined by Liu Ling and Little Princess.

They test Xiao Yan's pill and confirm it to be authentic.

He is then frozen by Hai Bo Dong and is shattered into pieces soon after the group leaves upon detecting the Spiritual Pressure surge due to Xiao Yan using Seven Magical Green Spirit Saliva to awaken Yao Lao.
- His fake name which he used to disguise himself is just the name of the empire. He also had to use a pill to make him younger so that he can enter the Receptarier contest.
