Pandas, being what is essentially a Chinese Bear, end up appearing over and over again in as martial artists. Apparently, being linked to China gives these animals skill in Chinese martial arts like Kung Fu.
Examples:Anime and Manga
- Ranma ˝: Genma Saotome transforms into a panda with cold water and is one of many martial artists in the setting.
- Kung Fu Panda: The Trope Namer, of sorts. Would be the actual name of this trope if it weren't for it being the name of a work.
