** He probably prepared a specfic ceremony or such beforehand. Consideting how strong Wuya is, he wouldn't have tried to restore her unless he had a reliable method of ensuring she is weaker than him.

** Firstly, the reversed Golden Tiger Claws would probably make it so the user cannot travel at all (it would freeze them on the spot for a period of time). The reversed Sands Of Time would send you the opposite temporal direction (if you wanted to go to the future, you'd be sent to the past, and vice versa), the Sword of The Storm would remove winds, and as for the Sweet Baby Among Us, maybe it would shoot golden diapers not at the enemy but at the person who possesses it. You just have to use your imagination.

** The Reversing Mirror tends to reverse any projectiles headed to the wielder so the golden diapers would be bounced back and probabyl the same could be said for the winds.

** Maybe Dashi just has a weird sence of humor.

*** In fact this may be why they don't do it as often as they could. They may have occasional bursts of GenreSavvy that say that if they're too unfair in what they pick, some LaserGuidedKarma will insure that the enemy is actually better at the challenge than expected. (Like, say, if Raymundo was completely and utterly unfair and picked "Not being named Jack" as a Showdown, it would turn out that Jack Spicer's real name is Eugene, and Raymundo forgot that his own middle name is Jackson or something, as AnAesop about not being a jerk.)

* How does Chase bring Wuya back without her powers? He used the Serpent's Tail and the Reversing Mirror, just like Raimundo did, so why would the effects be any different? Are we just hand-waving it as some unspecified Heylin magic?

** There's several possibilities: A) Chase distracted him. He was so busy trying to win him over he didn't get anything evil done. B) Wuya helped him out a bit in the first season, so later he was supporting himself more. and C) When you think about in in a FridgeLogic sort of way, he probably was at the same level as he was in the beginning, and the ''monks'' got better. Think about it: From what we're shown, Jack only ever truly fights the monks on a regular basis, whereas the monks fight a crap load of regular villains ''and'' one shot villains. They even commented themselves about how fighting Jack had become norm and boring, meaning they'd gotten used to him and his tactics. Jack then seems much weaker in comparison.

* In the episode where Jack builds Chameleon Bot to replace Kimiko, the episode ends with him having every shen gong wu at the point (except for the Mantis Flip Coin and Golden Tiger Claws) which includes the Shroud of Shadows. A couple of episodes later, Omi wins the shroud back along with Jack's Jet Bootsu. Then in ''Mala Mala Jong'', Omi loses the Jet Bootsu to Jack over a showdown for the Heart of Jong. With Jack victorious, Wuya has everything she needs to summon Mala Mala Jong. However, when Jong is brought to life, you can see
the shroud on its back. Kimiko even lampshades the plot hole when she quips "The Shroud of Shadows?! How'd they get that?".

**** Omi believed that using the [[MesACrowd Ring of the Nine Dragons]] would allow him to boost his overall efficiency. Omi is the type who'd rush in to try to handle everything on his own. Giving Omi such an impossible task with the odds against him was a way to force him to learn that he truly can't do everything on his own.

*** Perhaps he could do it with one brush, it was just (and obviously so) hard work, just as Omi could have fixed his problems as one person, though it would have taken some minor sacrifices. Omi's hardheaded, so the punishment needed to drive this home...
