Tian Long Ba Bu, which literally translates as "eight paths of the heavenly dragon," is also commonly known as Demigods and Semidevils. It has three male leads, overlapping storylines and themes, and numerous characters of various ethnicities. Below are clips and picspam from the latest TV version.

Xiao Ao Jiang Hu 2001 is the latest TV adaptation of Jin Yong's novel of the same title. The series is marketed under the English title of Laughing in the Wind. Previous TV versions are alternately called Smiling Proud Wanderer and State of Divinity. The story revolves around intrigues and power-play in wulin, with side themes such as loyalty, honesty, piety, and that lack of balls =/= lack of courage, literally.
