* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Judging by his few appearances and his legacy, the [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands Shen Gong Wu]], one can infer that Dashi was either the definition of CrazyPrepared or a [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs very]] EruditeStoner. Maybe [[EccentricMentor both]].
* DracoInLeatherPants: Jack Spicer and Chase Young get this in spades from the fandom.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Jack Spicer gets this in spades, to the point where he's the subject of nearly half of the show's fanworks.
** Le Mime also has a fairly sizable fanbase despite appearing in only one episode.
* EvilIsSexy:
** Wuya fills out her Heylin outfit ''very'' nicely.
** [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Chase Young]].
** Katnappe also counts.
** ''Jack Spicer''
* EvilIsCool: Chase Young.
* FanPreferredCouple: Raimundo/Kimiko and also [[HoYay Chase/Jack]] for the YaoiFangirls
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Raimundo's throwaway line in "Chameleon" (season 1, episode 6) - "Maybe I'm missing the point. [[spoiler: We're never gonna go after each other]]!" Talk about TemptingFate.
* {{GameBreaker}} / 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.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** GreyDeLisle as an Asian girl with fire powers? [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Wait a minute..]]
*** In that same area, one episode has Omi gain the ElementalPowers of the other Dragons. A young boy who's a monk with markings on his head that [[PowerGlows glow]] and he controls all four elements? Then in the series finale [[HumanPopsicle he freezes himself]] [[TheSlowPath to travel to the future]].
*** Also Airbender related, [[MakingASplash Omi]] joining in on Raimundo teasing Clay for using Tai-chi, which was the main inspiraton for the waterbenders techniques.
* MagnificentBastard: Chase Young.
* MemeticMolester: According to some parts of the fandom, Chase Young is this to Omi. Not helped with lines like these:
--> Chase: [[AccidentalInnuendo I like your spunk little one!]]
* MemeticMutation:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYNd3mgWxfA You got Jacked!]]
** '''Jack Spicer:''' It hurts! Get it out!
** A lot of sayings Omi butchers become these as well.
*** ''SECRET ELABORATE PLAN!''
* 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.
* PeripheryDemographic: Possibly due to its CerebusSyndrome, it got quite a bit of a cult following amongst older teenagers.
* SeasonalRot: The 3rd season is largely seen as inferior to the first two, mainly due to not having [[RandomEventsPlot much of a story arc compared to the other seasons]], VillainDecay on the part of Jack and Wuya, and the new villain Hannibal Bean not being particular threatening or interesting.
* TastesLikeDiabetes: Jack whenever he turns completely good via the Ying Yang World, to the point where even though he's wholeheartedly on their side the monks like him even ''less'' [[WeWantOurJerkBack than they do when he's evil.]]
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks:
** News that the revival is being outsourced to Canada is already getting this reaction.
** Jack's new voice--with a higher pitch that makes him seem a lot younger--is also getting this reaction (though it was later revealed that it was simply a place-holder since his actual voice actor hadn't been hired yet).
** Fans also seem to be objecting to the use of CGI in the Showdowns, and the seemingly random name change to the Orb of Tornami, called the Orb of Torpedo in the preview clip.[[note]] The name change is [[JustifiedTrope justifiable]]. The names of the Shen Gong Wu are still the property of Warner Brothers, and so their names will be changed slightly or else the new show won't be able to use them. Most of these, however, were from a preview that was, as confirmed by the creators, leaked and not supposed to be on the internet in the first place, they also stated that it's also a fairly old clip; it's extremely likely that it's going to change somewhere down the line. [[/note]]
* UnintentionallySympathetic: After a while it can be hard to enjoy the abuse Jack Spicer gets put through. While he's undoubtedly done villainous things, his status as a character who's not good enough for either the good guys or the bad guys along with the focus on his insecurities makes it really easy to feel sorry for him. He's given enough PetTheDog moments that it can look like build up to a HeelFaceTurn, but he never quite makes it.
* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Jack.
* 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.
* WhatAnIdiot: Seriously, Omi trusted Chase Young even though he guessed that he was up to something.
* TheWoobie: Jack Spicer, and sometimes Omi and Raimundo.
** Kimiko, big time in ''Tangled Web''.
** Dojo in ''Master Monk Guan'' what with being the butt of everyone's jokes, called out for not helping the monks fight Jack's Wuya-Bots even though they've always known he's not exactly [[CowardlyLion brave]] and he almost gets killed so Chase can use him as a soup ingredient.
