* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The Woozy Shooter makes whoever gets hit by it "goofy," aka extremely high and delirious. Complete with [[MushroomSamba acid trip visuals]]. Dojo explicitly refers to it as emitting a [[ShoutOut purple]] [[JimiHendrix haze]] that makes its victims so "goofy."

* IronicEcho: [[spoiler: In the same scene: after losing Omi back to the side of good, Chase Young claims that after tasting evil, Omi wouldn't [[ItGetsEasier be able to resist the next time,]] claiming "I believe the evil in you is stronger than you know." When Omi turns around and apologizes to his friends for not using the secret to defeating evil when he had the chance instead of abiding by his word, Chase admits that he caused Omi to see the secret to defeating good instead, and thus not abiding his word would have been catastrophic. Omi then points out that telling him that was uncharacteristically good of him, claiming "I believe the good in you is stronger than you know" and taking his leave.]]

* EatingTheEnemy:[[RegularlyScheduledEvil Every 1500 years]], Dojo takes on a SuperpoweredEvilSide in the form of a giant two headed dragon with HorrorHunger for Shen Gon Wu. And he'll eat anyone that gets in his way. The only way to prevent this is if stays inside a magical little box for the whole day. In the episode ''Enter the Dragon'', Omi allows himself [[NiceJobBreakingItHero to be tricked by Dojo into letting him go]] and he then proceeds to devour everyone in temple, the Shen Gon Wu, and Jack Spicer. Fortunately, they are able to help Omi escape who then challenges them to a Xiaolin Showdown over the Silk Spinner. The challenge is to see who can catch who first and throughout the whole challenge they try to eat Omi again. But in the end, Omi is able to trick them into the magical box, returning Dojo to normal.

* MoralDissonance: If it wasn't enough for [[ButtMonkey Jack Spicer]] to be repeatedly humiliated by [[LaserGuidedKarma karma]], [[StupidEvil his own incompetence]], and by [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder other villains]], even ''the heroes'' deliberately add to his suffering just for their amusement. For example:

* MoralDissonance: The Xiaolin warriors once beat up Jack and stole his belt, shoe, a huge chunk of his hair and his ''underwear'' as part of a bet. And while the hair isn't really stolen, it becomes a little disturbing when you realized that Clay ''ripped'' it off of Jack's head.

For example:
** Once when they were in the Arctic Ocean, the Xiaolin Dragons "offered" Jack a ride home by having him hang from a rope while they were flying, forcing him to go water-skiing with his own body.
** Another time, the Xiaolin Monks used the Emperor Scorpion to order the Fearsome Four to throw Jack around like a basketball.
** When Jack considered defecting to the Xiaolin side, the Dragons just heaped all their chores upon him, among other humiliations. It's no wonder that he soon goes back to being evil.
** Once, they outright refused to save Jack from going down a waterfall. He survived, but still.

* GenreSavvy: Raimundo, who enjoys lampshading whenever it "sounds like end of the world time again."
** When the monks fail to open the Treasure of the Blind Swordsman, Raimundo's GenreSavvy enables him to recognize that the blind old man was "talking like the Fung-meister". He subsequently figures out the koan and successfully opens the Treasure.

* UnsafeHaven: The Shen Gong Wu "Vault" really ought be called the Shen Gong Wu Grab n Go. The vault does such a lousy job of keeping the warriors' Wu safe that even [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Jack Spicer]] can swoop on in and leave with a sack full of the powerful weaopons with the warriors none the wiser. It gets so bad, that in one episode Dojo actually screams in frustration [[LampshadeHanging about why they don't get a proper lock for the vault]].

* EatTheCamera: At one point in the series, both this trope '''and''' [[MouthCam its inverted variation]] get pulled off simultaneously; in „Enter the Dragon“, we get a shot from one of two-headed Dojo's mouths as they suck Omi in, who engulfs the screen as he flies in screaming.

Added DiffLines:

* InvincibleVillain: Chase Young borders on this at times. He's powerful, intelligent, handsome, highly skilled, outclasses every other villain on the show as well as most of the heroes, and almost never suffers major setbacks either. The final season tones these traits down.
