Linked to the Dragon?

From Peter Lee's review of The Great Wall: Crouching Tiger, Leapin’ Lizards! the Great Wall Comes to America

One last note: a fumbled grace note in the movie was the name given to the monsters: Tao Tei.

In Chinese, the name is spoken taotie, a kinda cool reference to the ubiquitous taotie monster masks incised on the most ancient of Chinese bronzes.
