%%** He starts off as ReformedButRejected (by Tigress and the rest of the Five, who are understandably leery); then he reveals to his son that [[spoiler:[[HeelFaceMole the whole thing was a ruse]] so as to get revenge on Po]]...except that apparently he really ''was'' going to be a CivilianVillain until Po's seeming superiority by making him his "assistant" [[SecondPlaceIsForLosers offended Taotie]]. But considering it was fairly obvious Po meant nothing insulting, was genuinely trying to help, and [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter truly believed he could change]], it seems just as likely that Taotie was just looking for an excuse to slip into ChronicVillainy again. Then when he discovers the nature of Po's gift to him ([[spoiler:replacing the magnifier he'd had stolen long ago]]), Taotie reforms for real, sabotaging his own machine to save Po. [[spoiler:But at the last, because he did still turn on the Valley and nearly wreck it with his machines again, [[MoralDissonance he still gets returned to Chorh-Gom]]...pushing him back to evil yet again out of quite justified resentment.]] [[StatusQuoIsGod Sigh]].

The Creator/DreamWorks Animation team and {{Nickelodeon}} have teamed up to bring the popular characters from their ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' movies to the small screen as ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness''. Po the Panda, Master Shifu, and the Furious Five from the film have all returned. They still reside in and protect the Valley of Peace from various threats.

* AsYouKnow: A rather {{egregious}} and inexplicable one in "The Master and the Panda" when, after Peng's return to the Valley forces Po to reveal [[spoiler:he is Tai Lung's nephew]] to Shifu, the panda then proceeds to explain to ''Tai Lung's own father'' just what happened when he rampaged and when Po himself fought him.

* RedundantRescue: The rescue of Master Yao is this, since he could have rescued himself at any point (and in fact this is clear from the start once Shifu tells the story of just how much Yao knows of kung fu). It's even lampshaded when Shifu [[HandWave Hand Waves]] Po's objection that Yao will be fine because he's a kung fu master "of the mind, not the body." [[spoiler:Except Yao is so powerful he can do physical moves with ''only'' his mind.]] That's okay though, because the whole point of the rescue was to teach Shifu a lesson about [[LikeYouWereDying how to live life to the fullest]]. And to have fun. (Yes, it manages to be a rare example of playing this trope straight and [[PlayedForDrama dramatically]], while ''still'' being hilarious.)
