In episode 5, it shows a romantic scene with Mei and MK (the first ship to appear) even though MK got suck into a gourd, even the Golden Horn ships them but turns out MK doesn't feel the same and he even throws up to prove that this romance stuff disgusted him or not ready for dating yet. The only other person I can think of is Red Son because I think they are all more similar than they think.
If it's possible for Red Son to have a redemption arc in the future cause I do want to see how Red and Mei (especially being overprotected of her friends) interact with each other? First trying to kill each as enemies, then becoming rivals who argue a lot and don't trust each other then slowly becoming good and end up saving each other more than once (even though they don't like), then they realize they have something in common and open to each other, Mei could help him be good and have fun while Red help her to discover new secrets of her powers.
Maybe we will see a different side of Mei that MK didn't know about since no one even asks where did her powers come from or how she was to control since the trailer for season 1 if she is that powerful she probably activate her power when she was a child, even after MK was given Monkey King's powers she was born with them and it's probably not easy to control them even in a young age.
It's too bad we never get to see an epic showdown between them since MK interrupt it if they do battle in full force, Mei would have Red Son as her perfect match as rivals. It would be kind of interesting and funny that they got in a situation where are forced to work together themselves out while arguing and trying to kill each other and they both realize they do have something in common besides in being into mechanics, it is they have to deal with their own family legacy that they honor (just the 2 of them).
Mei who is a descendant of the White Dragon Horse she honors with her ancestors, the who probably had a human successor which has pass down to generations just like the Monkey King after they went their separate ways with Journey to the West Story which make sense why a human has powers of a dragon, MK had been Mei’s best friends ever since they were kids but I don't think he truly understands her or how she feels about her family's legacy after, in episode 3 we get to see Mei's house and family, she looks sad and unsure when looks through her ancestors' tapestries thinking that can't live up to families' history, and Red Son who is the son of the Demon Bull King and Princess probably grew up without a dad and his mother is focusing on bringing back her husband and bringing the world into eternal darkness than loving and supporting her son who is willing to do everything in his power to make them proud of him but never received any love and appreciation to them.
If they could end up talking to each other without fighting each other (just the 2 of them) like in Avatar with Zuko and Katara trapped in the crystal caves in book 3 which is also a turning point to redemption until he doesn't except it (yet) and the two will fight each other in the end since Red is still loyal to the DBK family.
It might sound crazy but after writing this comment about Red Son and Mei it would be impossible or cute if people ship them as enemies to lovers couple.
I've made a Monkie Kid server. Anyone interested?.
If the Journey to the West story actually happen hundreds of years ago didn't notice that in the pilot episode A Hero was Born I notice when MK saw golden illusions of the Monkey King face enemies and used to be sworn brothers, Demon Bull King, Princess Iron Fan, Six Eared Macaque, Spider Queen, and the Horn Demon Brothers, but no Red Son, it would make sense he wasn't born yet. But when you brought up the goddess, in the original Journey to the West story, the Red Son or (Red Boy) became a servant of the goddess of Mercy Guan Yin after she helps the Monkey King defeat him, how about the gang meet a descendant or reincarnation of the goddess or Guan Yin herself and tries to help him see the errors of his ways with is another opening for his redemption but realize if he is going to change, he has to change on his own being the person he wants to be not what everyone expects him to be without anyone forcing him to be something he has to be. All he wants to make his family proud but is it really what he wants, wanting to recognizes and loved by a family that looks down at him and doesn't appreciate him as their own son, Just because you are born a demon doesn't mean you have to be one, even demons have a bit of humanity in them it just it is rare for them to see it.
Maybe we will see a different side of Mei that MK didn't know about since no one even asks where did her powers come from or how she was to control since the trailer for season 1 if she is that powerful she probably activate her power when she was a child.
