Royal Tramp is a 1992 Hong Kong film based on Louis Cha's novel The Deer and the Cauldron. The film was one of the five top grossing Hong Kong films in 1992. Stephen Chow, who played the protagonist Wai Siu-bo, also starred in the other four films. The film was followed by a sequel, Royal Tramp II, in the same year.


The story of Wai Siu-bo, a lecherous wimp who after saving Chan, the leader of the Heaven and Earth society, a revolutionary group, is made a member. After a botched first assignment for the group, he is made a servant to the Emperor, the very person the Heaven and Earth society wants to overthrow. What follows is plenty of mayhem and laughter. But it ends with the exposure and escape of the fake Empress Dowager.
