    I don't know how to choose a favorite art. I like karate. It's great... So is kung fu. Xing Yi and tai chi are great too. I can't really choose a favorite between the 3. Personally I have no preferability. I like it all

    Weird question because obviously everyone's going to say their own art. Unless they train multiple styles which is the case for me so I'd say Muay Thai

    Currently, I like kickboxing (The only thing I still know - or think I know due to weak partners). I already forgot grappling and many other things. Soon, I will not know kickboxing and I will not like it, either. :)

    A quick google search tells me this is an art from a book series. Is it based on an actual art?

    No. It is fantasy. And therefore very much a proper response to the question asked by the O/P.

    I really like your post. Being curious about all things if very beneficial, especially for learning and becoming rounded. My heart is in TKD (although eclectic in itself) where I have spent most of my MA time but with belted ties to Kali and Kung Fu, I feel that I am a better informed person. It is harder, and less often the traditional "community" is not seen in the Dojang. As with modern society, it is more about what have you done for me lately. This does take some of the shine and appreciation off MA. While a lot of systems are Marital, BJJ, MMA, etc..., there is little or no Art component. Not said as a negative, just as a reality. Not bad either. There are exceptional physical/mental qualities in all MA. But often comparisons are made unfairly because not all the apples are apples.
