        In Weyl semi-metals (WSMs), the electrons of opposite chirality, known as massless Weyl fermions, move like photons in vacuum. However, all topological fermions discovered to date in WSMs are limited in very small regions of the Brillouin zone. In our work, we present a general recipe for exploring ‘ideal’ Weyl fermions from the view of symmetry protection. Specifically, the candidates in the recipe possess two significant advantages protected by symmetry of system: 1. The Weyl physics is strongly robust with respect to lattice disorder since the nodal points with opposite Chern number cannot easily annihilate each other; 2. Certain projections of the Weyl nodes onto the surface Brillouin zone induce very long Fermi arcs which are favoring their experimental detection. In our view, this symmetry analysis approach is generally an important advancement for this class of novel materials and is able to be applied for other kinds of Weyl fermions. By performing high-through-put calculations, we provide a group of candidate that fit these non-trivial features. Hence, this work opens a pathway that will significantly influence the research of WSMs in the future.
