According to Wikipedia, Sun Wukong acquires his powers thru Taoist practices, then takes part in a Buddhist journey. So, he is a bit of both.

In ancient China, Taoism very much like a University focusing on Cosmology & Geology 天文地理, Health & Medication 醫療保健, Metal Extraction & QiGong 治金煉丹, & many others well known contributions. The last piece is Talisman 符籙 remains least open that related to communication beyond!

Taoism dismisses him as a fictional character and does not acknowledge his existence.

Subhūti (Pali: Subhūti; Chinese: 须菩提; pinyin: Xūpútí) was one of the Ten Great Sāvakas of Gotama Buddha, and foremost in giving gifts. In Prakrit and Pāli, his name literally means "Good Existence" (su: "good", bhūti: "existence"). He is also sometimes referred to as "Elder Subhūti" (Subhūti Thera). He was a contemporary of such famous arahants as Sāriputta, Mahakassapa, Mahāmoggallana, Mahākaccāna and Ānanda.

A character based on Subhūti appears in the Chinese classical novel Journey to the West, as the teacher of the Monkey King Sun Wukong. The story of Sun Wukong first meeting Subhūti was a play on the Zen story of Huineng meeting Hongren, as told in the Platform Sūtra of Zen Buddhism. Because of the role that Subhūti plays in the story, his name has remained familiar in Chinese culture.

Good understanding.
If LaoZi not knowing what is Tao, so do I.
It is up to your own interpretation & need not sticking to any hard/rigid teachings. Be an open minder, trying to understand/observe the nature & focus in your best fit option.

"The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao" sums it up. Some things cannot be taught, only experienced.

But that shouldn't stop us from discussing it here

At once, 5 of us (top tier pro Taoist) chitchatting about bone chocking charms 化骨咒,surprisingly all of us using different scrip but all proven effective when applied.
In my opinion, the key points:
1. We’re confident & truly believed
2. We mastered the Energy Resonance (炁 Qi)
3. The Reciever Fully Trusted in our practice, calm down with muscles relax, ...
4. Our Spiritual Guide coordinates with appropriate Officer-in-charge beyond

The Celestial Master Zhang was conferred by the Chinese Emperors as part of the Political Administration Leadership until the 63th Celestial. The end of the Monarchy marked the discontinued of 1,820years ZhengYi Tao that recognized globally.
Right now there are some 7 family members of Zhang claimed that they are the 64th or 65th Celestial Master Zhang & dispute in both Taiwan & China Courts. As usual, China Communist Government appointed a person not carrying family name of Zhang as the 65th Celestial Master Zhang for influence in Religion just like Catholic system.
It is a critical turning point & opportunity for transformation just like Buddhism originated from India (Nepal now) but less that 1% of India population is Buddhist & yet 8% of world population became the next largest religion after Abrahamic Religion (Christian, Muslim, ...).

Top of the list is our ancestors.
The next question is we are asking for something at an unknown price or we are offering our respect from bottom of our heart?

Grab is reasonable rewarded with set of challenges associated. We have the liberty to look at bright side or other at the same situation. Find some value out of the process in oder to divert our focus!

I don’t encourage supernatural power 神通 but sharing that there is a will, there are ways. The flip side is we don’t know the price we are paying in return. Try our best effort & reward may come naturally. Trying to refrain from unnecessary spiritual power utilization.
