** Even before that, his [[GenreSavvy Genre Savviness]] made him rightfully suspicious of Jack's sudden offer to team up. However, Omi and the others still [[DudeWheresMyRespect looked down on him]] because he wasn't an apprentice and [[CassandraTruth ignored his opinion]] in favor of the villain they've been fighting on a regular basis. Not surprisingly, [[TooDumbToLive the apprentices get captured]] with no way to prevent Pandabubba's minions from raiding the temple. Raimundo successfully pulled off a feint and orchestrated a breakout all by himself. Making a comeback win in the showdown was just icing on the cake.

* An early Showdown involves Clay and Jack competing to catch a sparrow. While Jack is aggressively flying after the sparrow, Clay calmly starts collecting seeds from nearby sunflowers. He then holds out the seeds and just lets the bird come to him to feed, winning the showdown in less than a minute.

* When he used what everyone agreed to be the most useless Shen Gong Wu (the Changing Chopsticks) to essentially pwn the good guys and steal all of their Shen Gong Wu. The best part is the monks didn't know what hit them until it was too late.
* Using the glove of jisaku to steal the changing chopsticks, monkey staff, tongue of saiping and the tunnel armadillo

* A subtle one [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome that we don't get to see]]: In the first appearance of Hannibal Roy Bean, he delivers a vicious HannibalLecture, peppered with the assurance that Jack ''could'' be a great villain, if only he had Hannibal to mentor him. Jack doesn't fall for it. To put it in perspective, Jack gets tricked on an almost daily basis, while Hannibal got [[MagnificentBastard Chase freaking Young]] to do what he wanted. The insecure Jack being able to walk away from temptation like that is a testament to his HiddenDepths.

*** What these three showdowns have in common is Raimundo's attitude during them. Each showdown follows a [[NiceJobBreakingItHero mistake or failing]] on Raimundo's part, and as such, they've [[TheSnarkKnight activated]] the "brilliant" half of his {{BrilliantButLazy}}-ness. Throughout all three showdowns, typically brash, cocky Raimundo becomes calm and focused on his goal, and he caps off each {{Badass}} performance with an effortless and stylish win. The fights showcase why he deserves to be a Xiaolin Dragon.

* I'm surprised nobody mentioned the part where he ''punched Robo!Jack square in the face, knocking him to the ground, and then ran over him'' in "The Apprentice". I don't know about you guys, but I found that part really surprising, seeing that this is Jack we're talking about.
*** Not to mention his prior face-off with Robo!Jack, in which Jack ''beheaded'' his robot double using the Shard of Lightning. Granted, it's a short-lived victory, but it's unexpectedly badass for Jack.
