Royal Tramp is a 1992 action-comedy film from Hong Kong. The movie is based on the popular novel by Jin Yong, and it stars Stephen Chow as the lovable and irreverent protagonist, Wei Xiaobao. The story takes place during the reign of Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty. Wei Xiaobao starts off as a street urchin, but he soon finds himself caught up in the middle of a power struggle between several factions vying for control of the government. Along the way, he meets various characters, including a group of beggars who take him under their wing, a beautiful palace maid named Shuang'er (played by Man Cheung), and a seductive assassin named Mu Jianping (played by Chingmy Yau).

Wei Xiaobao is a clever and resourceful young man who manages to get himself out of trouble using his quick wit and his silver tongue. He is a coward at heart, but he has a good heart and always tries to do the right thing, even if it means putting himself in danger.

Despite his humble beginnings, Wei Xiaobao has a talent for making friends in high places. He becomes embroiled in a plot to overthrow the emperor, but his loyalty is always in question. His allegiances shift several times throughout the movie, and it is never quite clear where his loyalties lie.
