The Hmong god of thunder. It is said that he was once caught and hung above a fire to dry, but he escaped and flew away. The thunderous sound he made as he flew over the rice fields caused stunted rice crops for ever afterward.

At the time of the great flood, the waters rose so high that waves hit the great gong at the mountain rooftop of the world. The sound awakened Xob and he came to man's rescue.
