* GrowingTheBeard: "Mala Mala Jong" marks the point where the series starts taking itself more seriously without losing its humor, the episodes start becoming more interconnected, as well as letting the show become much more character and arc-centric.

**Jack falling for the monks trick. Is he genuinely that stupid or is he so desperate for approval that he doesn't care that its fake?

** As this person points out in [[http://chipmunkfanatic.tumblr.com/post/47850028281/omi-betrayal-analysis this analysis]], Omi is using his prideful behavior to cover his abandonment issues and was legitimately heartbroken when Raimundo betrayed the team and even after he joins back up, is legitimately scared Rai doesn't mean it, only coming to trust him again in the original series finale.

* NightmareFuel: Due to OrificeInvasion with which to control you as a PuppeteerParasite, Sibini definitely qualifies.
** "HEYLIN POWER! TSUNAMI WATER BLADE: ICE!"
** Dojo's scene with Jack in "Enter The Dragon". Just the way his mouth slowly closes before letting out an evil laugh as he clothes his jaws... yeesh.
** The Sapphire Dragon, just, the Sapphire Dragon. That, thing, along with being an EnsembleDarkhorse of Shen Gong Wu, is considered by many to be one of the scariest things to ever come out of the series.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: Omi and Raimundo do much more than either Kimiko and Clay, who only get a handful of focus episodes across the series and do little of importance outside of them.
* StoryBreakerPower: A few of the Wu fall fall into this either on their own in unique combination.
** The first notable one was the Golden Tiger Claws, allowing the user to essentially invoke TeleportSpam and make any Showdown a breeze. It was even sent to the center of the Earth for a while so it wouldn't be used.
** The second item was Treasure of Blind Swordsman, which required Raimundo to fake a FaceHeelTurn and scam Roy Bean since direct methods were out of the question.
** One of the most lethal examples of this was the Sapphire Dragon, a sentient Shen Gong Wu that essentially can cause a ZombieApocalypse. It may have a WeaksauceWeakness, but still, doing that is easier said than done. So much so that in its last appearance it had to be severely dialed back.
** Then there's the Hodoku Mouse, which allowed the user to undo any mistakes they make. This one, for better or worse never got used, as Jack ended up losing it in a cave-in.
** The Sands of Time, it gives the power of time travel, which, as any fan of fiction can tell you can cause all sorts of problems ranging from a BadFuture to a GrandfatherParadox. This one was lost twice: [[spoiler:Old Omi took it back with him into the future to hide it the first time, and the second time it was vaporized in a BadFuture by the Kasuzu Atom]].
** The Kasuzu Atom is basically a handheld vaporizer, [[spoiler:it's even capable of destroying other Shen Gong Wu, which have proven to be able to even survive at the center of the Earth]].
** The Fountain of Hui and the Eagle Scope by themselves are relatively useless, but together they allow the user to unlock and have access to all the knowledge in the universe. [[spoiler:Unfortunately the Reversing Mirror can be used to make certain bits of knowledge, say the way to destroy all evil, the exact opposite of what you want]].
** The Emperor Scorpion may be the most powerful out of all of these, it allows the user control over ANY Shen Gong Wu, including Mala Mala Jong!
** The Heart of Jong had the power to bring any inanimate object to life. Sadly, it's full potential, besides Mala Mala Jong, was only ever used once but fortunately, what it ended up making was actually pretty frightening.

* VillainSue: 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.
