Gu Long's creative idea is "seeking innovation and change". He has been committed to breaking the traditional pattern of martial arts works. In order to avoid the dilemma of "senior readers will guess the end of the story at the beginning", which makes martial arts novels lose its appeal to readers, it almost completely abandons the plot function of traditional martial arts novels. So how does Gulong "establish" his own narrative mode after "breaking"? What new message does Gulong want to convey through his "narrative mode" to redefine "martial arts"? Starting from the study of the functions of gulong's martial arts novels, this paper concludes that gulong's martial arts novels have narrative functions, and discusses the purpose of setting these narrative functions, which is the key to explore the differences between gulong's martial arts novels and other martial arts novels, and also the goal of this paper.
