Added DiffLines:

* TrackingSpell: Uncle frequently casts locator spells to help find the talismans, Oni masks or whatever object the heroes are looking for. Daolon Wong can use these as well.

* ImprovisedLockpick: Subverted in the Season 4 finale. Viper tries to break the J-Team out of their cell with a hairclip and then with a credit card, but the lock is magically sealed shut.

** They look/act ''especially'' different compared to real-life demons... but then again, [[DeadHorseTrope most fictional stories]] do.

** One episode is a WholePlotReference to ''EnterTheDragon'' (the movie where Jackie got his start as an extra, probably-not-incidentally).
** Any time Viper shows up, expect one reference to ThePinkPanther series. The sleazy antiques collector in "Enter the Cat" is a nod to Sydney Greenstreet's character in ''TheMalteseFalcon''. And then there was a whole episode that spoofed James Bond.

** To put it in perspective, he's the [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Genie]] [[JustForFun/XMeetsY mixed]] with SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. If that doesn't instill terror, nothing does. But his desire for comedy and getting the last laugh sometimes works against him.

* SealedCastInAMultipack: And in the third season, the powers of the Talismans were released when they were destroyed, and went into new hosts: random members of their respective species. They were collected and kept in The Vault in cages.
* SealedEvilInACan: Usually this is what Jackie is trying to prevent from happening each season.
** Justified in that killing Shendu in the first season caused all the trouble that followed. [[spoiler:Sealing him in the final season ended it all.]]
* SealedEvilInADuel: [[spoiler:The series ends with Drago (using the powers of all eight demon sorcerers) and his father Shendu (using all twelve of his talismans) being sealed within another realm to duel for all eternity.]]
* SealedEvilInASixPack: The Demon Sorcerer Shendu was defeated the first time by wizards taking pieces of his powers, including the power to move, and placing them in 12 stones, each decorated with the image of one of the animals of the Chinese Zodiac. This is where the Talismans came from. Holding one gives you that power.

* SealedEvilInACan: Usually Most seasons involved the heroes attempting to reseal escaped ancient villains back in their cans. In the series, this is what Jackie is trying to prevent from happening each season.
** Justified in
{{justified| trope}} by the fact that killing destroying evil will only allow [[EvilPowerVacuum a different (and probably stronger) evil to take its place]]. [[BetterTheDevilYouKnow Better then to keep around the evil threat you already know how to deal with]], than risk leaving the way open for something far worse to come up that you may not know how to deal with in time.
** The most notable example is [[BigBad Shendu]], a [[DragonsAreDemonic demonic dragon]] who had to be [[TakenForGranite turned into a wall-mounted statue]] multiple times. He also sometimes got banished back to the [[PrisonDimension Netherworld]] along with [[SealedEvilInASixPack his seven siblings]], who are also [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils powerful demons]]. [[spoiler:The GrandFinale had
Shendu in and [[OverlordJr his son Drago]] both being sent away to the first season caused all the trouble that followed. [[spoiler:Sealing him in the final season ended it all.Netherworld [[SealedEvilInADuel while they were fighting each other]].]]
* SealedEvilInADuel: [[spoiler:The series ends with Drago (using ** There's also the powers of {{Oni}} and [[LivingShadow Shadowkhan]], who are all eight demon sorcerers) part of a SealedArmyInACan. Their leader [[ArcVillain Tarakudo]], an Oni Lord, was somehow reduced to a [[FlyingFace disembodied head]] and his father Shendu (using all twelve of his talismans) being sealed within banished to another realm to duel for dimension, while his nine Oni Generals and their respective Shadowkhan armies were trapped in [[EvilMask Oni]] [[MaskOfPower Masks]] that, should they all eternity.be reunited in one place, will be set free so they can start taking over the world. [[spoiler:In the end, every single Oni and Shadowkhan are trapped inside a single mask that was placed on Tarakudo's face.]]
* SealedEvilInASixPack: ** Some minor villains also got the eternal imprisonment treatment:
*** [[EvilSorcerer Daolon Wong]]'s demonic henchmen, the [[TerribleTrio Dark Chi Warriors]], end up getting trapped inside a magic box (the Urn of Wei Ching) by Uncle.
*** Also [[OurTrollsAreDifferent Spring-Heeled Jack]], who can be [[TakenForGranite turned to stone]] by pouring salt on him, and released if water is poured on him.
***
The Demon Sorcerer Shendu [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Monkey King]], an evil trickster who was defeated turned into a puppet, but will be changed back into flesh-and-blood if another person [[SchmuckBait pulls the first time by wizards taking pieces of his powers, including the power to move, and placing puppet's leg]] (which turns them into a puppet in 12 stones, each decorated with the image Monkey King's place).
*** And there's also a group
of one of the animals of the Chinese Zodiac. This is where the Talismans came from. Holding one gives you that power.[[MirrorMonster evil spirits trapped]] [[MagicMirror inside a mirror]], [[SchmuckBait who desperately beg for anyone nearby to free them]].



** Averted when Shendu possesses Jade, yet played straight when he possesses Valmont and [[spoiler:Jackie]].
** Averted however, when Jade is filled with Uncle's chi (and thus his personality). Jade's voice actress basically just does an Uncle impersonation. Earlier in the same episode, Tohru gets filled with Jade's chi and uses the same technique.

** MindOverMatter: The Rooster Talisman grants levitation and telekinesis, allowing the user to make oneself or others float in the air. Can be combined with the Rabbit Talisman for super-fast flight.

** One has to wonder why Captain Black didn't say that Shendu looked like a dragon, seeing how few of them look like a dragon.
