In East Asie cultur, thare is whiles a fift Gairdian Beast o the Si Xiang. This deity is the gairdian o the centre an it represents the element Yird, the Cheenese quintessence, as well as the chyngin o the saisons.

Huang Long daes no appear in Japanese meethologie: the fift element in the Japanese elemental seestem is Void, sae thare canna be an ainimal representin it. Acause o this, Huang Long is aften forgotten. Housomeivver, some consider the Ouryu (Ōryū, yellae dragon) as the Japanese coonterpairt o Huang Long syne thay share some similarities.

The legendar Yellae Emperor wis whiles said tae hae transformit intae a draigon that resembled his emblem an ascendit tae heiven. Syne the Cheenese consider him tae be thair ancestor, thay whiles refer tae thairsels as "the childer o the draigon". This legend contributit towards the uise o the Cheenese draigon as a seembol o imperial pouer an aw.
