What are the similarities between Hindu and Chinese mythology?

I could only find references to Yama
, the Lord of Death. Both mythologies share this idea, though in Chinese mythology, he's also known by other names (correct me if I'm wrong).
However, I'm sure there are a couple of more similarities. Hanuman
and Sun Wu Kong
, for example. Apparently, Sun Wu Kong is partly based on Hanuman but Wikipedia wasn't of any more help than that.
I'd be grateful for any insights. Thanks!
