** In the third movie he is shown to live in the Spirit Realm [[spoiler: until Kai steals his chi, trapping his spirit. Then Po releases him and talks to him once Kai's defeated]].



He's not a panda. And his family aren't geese. It's really a universe with one sentient species that has lots of extremely diverse races that happen to look vaguely similar to earth species. Po was the resultr of a whole bunch of recessive genes that happened to hit all at once, and made him look like a panda. Sort of like a blond being born to two brunettes, only to the extreme.

* By the third movie [[spoiler: the relationship is still just teased]].




to:

* Does going to [[spoiler: the Spirit Realm]] count as "outside China"?




to:

** [[spoiler: Jossed. Tai Lung only appears as one of Kai's jade stones as a ContinuityNod, but doesn't even appear as a Jombie.]]




to:

** [[spoiler: Sort of confirmed. Kai in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3'' resurrects an army of dead kung fu warriors as living jade statues, dubbed "jombies". Tai Lung and Shen are not among them, though.]]



* Dude, seriously? Anyways, I don't agree with those giant gorilla-lke creatures in the film representing gitantopithecus as most biologists agree it probably would have looked more like an obese orangutan than a gorilla, considering how biologically accurate this series is I would be shocked.

But the GOOSE, had the answer brfore the question was asked.

to:

** [[spoiler: Jossed. He returns as a heroic character. The worst thing he does is that he lies to Po about knowing how to use chi to make him come to the secret panda village.]]

to:

* Well, in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3'' he meets other pandas who end up admiring and adoring him. Is this what you mean?




to:

* Jossed. All pandas in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3'' are heroic and fight by the side of Po against an evil yak spirit.

**But instead of beating him, Po proves himself by conceding defeat gracefully, proving he knows that he'll always have more to learn.

to:

**** Played with. Definitely played with. In the third movie, we learn that [[spoiler: Pandas, as a race, definitely have a ''history'' of mastery over chi manipulation, which they seemed to use mainly for healing, not as an offensive art. However, in the current era, that knowledge is entirely lost to them. Po's father is a competent fighter but not a kung fu master. Po coming to terms with the "Panda" part of his identity helps him to master chi, but only as it helps him attain inner peace, not because of secret panda lore.]]

to:

* I'd say she was brought to the Jade Palace immediately before Tai Lung's downfall. Not enough time for them to develop any sort of positive relationship (there's no hint of one in the bridge scene), but also not enough time for Shifu and Tigress to bond properly either. It also explains Tigress's perspective on Tai Lung: "I get a home > crazy leopard wrecks everything and nearly kills my adopted dad > adopted dad stopped loving me."

Aside from [[Creator/JackBlack the obvious]], both are decently competent fighters whose real strength is teaming up with their already powerful allies for absolutely devastating {{CombinationAttack}}s.

[[WMG: Po was the ancient ancestor of [[PhineasandFerb Peter the Panda]].]]

to:

* Sort of confirmed. The villain of the third film, Kai, is quite explicitly supernatural.

* I love this theory. I truly hope it happens. And as another way it could (which also underscores the theme of balance), one FanFic posited the notion there is a second warrior position, equal and opposite to the Dragon, which is meant to fight at his side and bring balance. That position is [[ShownTheirWork the]] [[ChineseMythology Phoenix Warrior]], and is given to Tai Lung. Of course if such a thing exists it wouldn't have to be Tai Lung, but if it were it would help address your points and bring balance thematically and character-wise as well as mythologically.

In ChineseMythology phoenixes and dragons are commonly paired together, usually in marriages to symbolize the bride and groom. Phoenixes are considered yin (feminine) and dragons are yang (masculine), so this theoretical Phoenix Warrior will most likely be female, and may possibly serve as an antagonist or a love interest to Po.

*Fun fact, people during ancient China were okay with homosexuality. So it's highly unlikely that homosexuality would be why Oogway denied Tai Lung the scroll.
