Amazing Chinese Characters (301) Rumble - 轰(轟)

The big seal script of character Rumble is

Three Vehicles - 车 (Post 5) together, which means many vehicles are rolling forward to make huge sound.


The small seal script of the character Rumble is

similar to the big seal script.

The clerical script of the character Rumble is

Still similar.

Traditional Song typeface for the character is


No much difference from clerical script.

Simplified Song typeface for the character is

The top is simplified Song typeface for 車 - Vehicle, the bottom is simplified Song typeface 双 - Pair (Pair 109), which means that there are two vehicles. The character is ideogram, not pictography anymore. It is difficult for readers to feel three vehicles rolling forward as the traditional one.

Its Pinyin is Hong1.
