[[folder:The Chan Clan]]
The main characters of the show. Three members of an extended Chinese-American family (and their Japanese friend) from San Francisco who save the world from the forces of evil.
* {{Badass}}es: They've battled all kinds of evil, from low-life criminals to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu demonic overlords]].
* BadassFamily: While Tohru isn't related to the others, he is still considered part of the Chan clan, and the family business is demon busting (and selling antiques).
* BadassInDistress: They all get their turns in needing rescue.
* BadassNormal: None of them have any special powers when fighting demons and wizards, although they use magic objects.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: They've all been temporarily transformed into something not quite human at least once.
* FighterMageThief:
** The Fighter: Jackie engages in physical combat the most, rarely using magic at all. And he tends to fail in speaking things out.
** The Mage: Uncle's main purpose is to prepare the spells, participating in action the least.
** The Thief: Jade is the [[SnoopingLittleKid most]] [[StealthHiBye stealthy]] and [[GuileHeroine cunning]].
** Tohru becomes a mix of the Fighter and the Mage.
%%* FreudianTrio:
%%** Id: Jade
%%** Superego: Uncle
%%** Ego: Jackie (with traits of a Superego) and/or Tohru
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble:
** The Cynic: Uncle rarely gives a crap about the concerns of others when he is trying to focus on the duty of saving the world.
** The Optimist: Jade is not easy to discourage from adventuring.
** The Realist: Jackie is the OnlySaneMan who tries to maintain the peace of the group.
** The Apathetic: Tohru is mostly a background assistant who rarely brings forth his own opinions.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble:
** The Sanguine: Jade is the most keen on enjoying the life at hand, ditching anything boring.
** The Choleric: Uncle can be quite bossy, especially when he is focusing on the task at hand.
** The Melancholic: Jackie is the most easy to stress out and he [[OnlySaneMan vocally laments about the craziness around him]].
** The Phlegmatic: Tohru is a reserved helper, who tends to suffer everything quietly.
* QuirkyHousehold: They tend to distract each other quite much, but in the end they are one big happy family.

[[caption-width-right:160: [[MartialPacifist He'd rather not kick your ass]].]]
-->''Bad day -- for ''demons''.''

-->'''Played by (live-action):''' Himself [[note]]During the intro sequence, and the interviews at the end of each episode.[[/note]]
-->'''Voiced by (animated):''' James Sie (adult), and Paul Robert Langdon (child)

The main hero of the series. He is an archaeologist on a mission to search for - in order - talismans, demon portals, animals with talisman powers, oni masks, and demon chi objects that were used to imprison Shendu's siblings. Though he's quite likely the only archaeologist on the planet up to this job (thanks to being '''Jackie Chan'''), he'd rather be on a dig or minding his Uncle's antique shop.
* ActionHero: Though he'd prefer otherwise, he ends up solving most of the problems with violence.
* {{Adorkable}}: When he's not serious, he's a nice awkward guy who ApologizesALot.
* AdventurerArchaeologist: {{Double Subver|sion}}ted; the archaeology is more or less realistic but he's recruited for unrelated missions. Often times he wishes he could get back to his quieter ''real'' job.
* AfraidOfNeedles: Other than dangerous criminals, the one thing he dislikes is getting a shot.
* AlmightyJanitor: In the Section 13 totem pole, he's just a glorified temp. He's also Jackie Chan.
* ArbitrarySkepticism:
** Throughout the series, he continues questioning the believability of new supernatural threats/phenomenons and Uncle's expositions. Unfortunately for him, he's almost certainly proved wrong 2 seconds later.
** In "Chi of the Vampire", he lampshades the ridiculousness of the things they need to do to take back everyone's Chi, since the requirements are even more unusual than normal. It involves [[spoiler:sticking a mushroom in the vampire's left sock and then tossing it in the river]]. {{It makes sense in context}}.
* {{Badass}}: He regularly takes on mobsters, sorcerers, and demons.
* BadassBookworm: Jackie is an educated antiquarian and professional archaeologist. Martial arts are something he does on the side.
* BadassNormal: He prefers using martial arts instead of magic to fight thugs, wizards, and demons. He usually doesn't need anything else.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's generally pacifistic, however if you ''do'' press his BerserkButton by hurting his friends or family then he will ''own'' you.
* BlueIsHeroic: He often wears a blue sweater.
* ButtMonkey: He may be the hero, but he suffers a lot of comical injuries. And things often go another way than he'd like them to.
* CaptainObvious: He has the habit of stating the obvious.
* CatchPhrase: He has many phrases, including:
** "OW!" (Especially after Uncle slaps him.)
** "BWAAAH!" (Whenever he's surprised.)
** "[[ThisIsGonnaSuck BAD DAY! BAD DAY! BAD DAY!]]"
** "[[YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe You gotta be kidding me]]."
** "That's crazy, Jade. ''You're'' crazy!" (Mostly in Seasons 1 and 2.)
** "Jade, stay here." (Right before Jade does the opposite.)
** "JADE! You're supposed to be _______!" / "Jade, how do you do that?" (Whenever Jade comes along uninvited.)
** "[[HeroStoleMyBike I'M SORRY, I'LL BRING IT BACK LATER, THANK YOOOUUU!!!]]" (Whenever he needs to borrow something really quickly.)
** "{{It belongs in a museum}}."
** "[[ImNotAHeroIm I am not a secret agent]], [[InsistentTerminology I am an archaeologist]]."
** "Talk later!"
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the first season, Jackie was easier to anger and more ready to act while in all the following seasons he's portrayed as the MartialPacifist NiceGuy he's known as.
* CombatParkour: He uses acrobatic moves as part of his fighting style.
* CompassionateCritic: Downplayed. He rarely congratulates Jade, trying to (fruitlessly) reduce her disobedience or rashness.
* CompositeCharacter: Of some classic characters real Jackie has portrayed, like the archaeologist in ''Film/OperationCondor'' and the MartialPacifist from ''Film/PoliceStory''.
* CoolUncle: Jade quickly believes that her martial artist AdventurerArchaeologist uncle is the coolest guy around.
* CowardlyLion: He's easy to startle or stress out most of the time, but he still leaps into action.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He may come off as this due to being a clumsy ButtMonkey, but he still saves the day in the end.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes it all becomes too much for him.
-->"Yes, I can see this is some very special garbage."
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:Shendu has possessed him in "Demon World (Part 1)" to get to the Book of Ages.]]
* DrunkenMaster: Twice. The first one occurs after Jackie gets [[FridgeLogic bitten by a cobra]]. The second one occurs when he suffers from decompression sickness.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: In one episode, he absorbed the chi of [[DishingOutDirt Dai Gui the Earth Demon]].
* {{Expy}}: Of the real Creator/JackieChan, if he had Franchise/IndianaJones' [[AdventurerArchaeologist occupation]].
* FirstNameBasis: Friends and family call him "Jackie".
* GlassCannon: Jackie could be seen as a downplayed version of this trope. For one thing, he's quite fast and agile, and decently strong. He's not by any means frail or a sucker in defense, but he appears to be somewhat susceptible to pain as he often winces when he gets a hit.
* GoodIsNotSoft: He's a nice guy, however when push comes to shove, he will fight back.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: He's thrice (one of those instances was [[NotWearingPantsDream a dream]], but still) shown wearing pink boxers with red hearts.
* GotVolunteered: He's often put on his adventures this way.
* TheHero: The main heroic good guy.
* HeroHarassesHelpers: No matter how many times Jade helps him out, he continues to view her messing things up, rarely congratulating her. And he [[WhatAnIdiot rejected the J-Team's help]] upon their first formation.
* HeroStoleMyBike: Everyone gets their turn, but Jackie is the most frequent perpetrator. See ApologizesALot.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: He shows signs of this trope. For example, he continues acting astonished when Jade disobeys him throughout the series.
** Perhaps the best example of this trope was in "Into The Mouth Of The Evil" with the bad guys of the episode.
* HumbleHero: In contrast to his glory- and adventure-seeking niece, Jade, he's happy in the antique shop.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Didn't want to get involved with Section 13, demons, or anything supernatural and complains about it.
* IWorkAlone: He's often reluctant to call for assistance beyond Uncle or Section 13. Most commonly he's reluctant to call in the J-Team. And don't get him started on his niece, he rarely wants ''her'' help.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Being Jackie Chan, he's the master of this trope. His improvised arsenal includes windshield wipers, a spoon, his shirt and ''[[GrievousHarmWithABody a human body]]''!
* JekyllAndHyde: His Yin (light) and Yang (dark) sides separate 3 times.
* LastNameBasis: Enemies usually call him "Chan".
* TheLeader: There's a reason its called the ''J'' Team. It's defied as he doesn't want to be a leader, but the other members like him so much, making him a Charismatic version of this trope.
* ManChild: Though this is mostly averted, he sometimes exhibits simple-minded naïvety associated with this trope.
* MartialPacifist: [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption He would rather talk than fight]].
* NiceGuy: Seriously, even his yang side turned out to be a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The best example would be him destroying the Talismans, [[WrongGenreSavvy believing]] that would [[NoMacGuffinNoWinner stop people from abusing their powers]].
* OnlySaneMan: Gets stuck in this role more than a few times because his team mates all have quirks.
* ParentalAbandonment: The ''only'' mention we ever get about Jackie's parents was that they had sent him to live with Uncle, much like how Jade's parents sent her to live with Jackie.
* ParentalSubstitute: Although we see Jade's parents, they've given Jackie the duty of raising their daughter, at least during school years.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Jade's red; calm, pacifistic, and even wears a blue shirt.
* {{Sleepwalking}}: He does this in "Project A, For Astral" when Uncle forces him to sweep the shop despite being exhausted.
%%* SociallyAwkwardHero
* WeirdnessMagnet: It seems no matter what he does, he always ends up accidentally uncovering the plots of ancient spirits and demons.
* WhatYouAreInTheDark: In "Deja Vu", he gets a chance to send Jade home to keep her from the magical adventures. Then he remembers her value at the last minute, he leaves it undone.
* WouldntHurtAChild: In "Through the Rabbit Hole", he has the opportunity of hurting the past Valmont, but ultimately doesn't use it. Chow lampshades it.
-->'''Chow''': ...Chan wouldn't hurt a kid. Not even mini-Valmont.

!!Jade Chan
[[caption-width-right:201:Helping Jackie, whether he wants it or not.]]
-->''[[StealthHiBye Hi, Jackie!]]''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Stacie Chan (child and adult, second appearance), and Creator/LucyLiu (adult, first appearance)

Jackie's niece who is always joining his adventures, much to Jackie's annoyance.
* ActionGirl: She does well once Jackie trains her.
* AdventureRebuff: OnceAnEpisode, Jackie will tell her to stay out of the action, and she will ''never'' listen to him. Fortunately, she manages to be pretty useful and avoids being TheLoad or a DistressedDamsel most of the time.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: In "A Jolly J-Team Xmas", she had [[SantasExistenceClause stopped believing that Santa Claus exists]]. In the final season, she disbelieves in haunting ghosts and evil mirror spirits. In all those instances, she's proven wrong.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: In "Little Valmont, Big Jade".
* BadassAdorable: Badass runs in the Chan family, and she is the youngest and cutest part of it.
* BadassNormal: She doesn't even have Jackie's experience and she still holds her own against supernatural threats. However, she is also more willing to use the Talismans.
%%* {{Badbutt}}
%%* BavarianFireDrill: She has used this technique a couple of times, especially in "And He Does His Own Stunts".
* BigEater: She has a BIG appetite, once eating 5 hot dogs and drinking 5 sodas in one ball game. Yet she still stays thin.
* BlowingARaspberry: Does this occasionally. During her time as the T-Girl, she was able to use the Dragon Talisman's power this way, much to her delight.
* BookDumb: Not very good in school, but very good at breaking into underground military installations.
* BoyishShortHair: It's combined with TomboyishSidetails that curl to the sides of her head from the hairline of her forehead, to accentuate her tomboyish nature.
* BrattyHalfPint: She's certainly a very stubborn and HotBlooded kid.
* BrilliantButLazy: She's not the type to sit down and do homework, but in addition to the BookDumb and GuileHero sections, her knowledge about science is decent.
* CassandraTruth: She keeps sharing her outrageous stories of adventuring with her uncle. Naturally, her teacher and classmates won't believe her.
* CatchPhrase:
** "[[StealthHiBye Hi Jackie!]]" (After popping out of nowhere.)
** "Awwww!" (Whenever Jackie refuses her requests.)
** "Tch!" (Disregarding whatever rule or order she's been told.)
** "Duh!"
** "Go Jackie!"
** "[[BattleCry HIIIYAAAH!]]"
** "Cyuuuute!"
** "Jackieeee!"
** "Talk later!"
* TheChosenOne: [[spoiler: At the end of "The Chosen One", it's implied that she might be the Ben Shui Order's Chosen One.]]
* CombatPragmatist: She tends to be the only one of the heroes who thinks to use the various magical artifacts/weapons they've acquired (the Talismans usually).
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Jade is very impulsive and prone to foolish behavior, and she's even [[NiceJobBreakingItHero caused a few of the episode conflicts]]. She's still capable of cleaning up her messes though.
* CultureBlind: You'd think that she was raised in America rather than China.
* CuteBruiser: Even without power-ups, she's abnormally strong for her size and nobody doubts her cuteness.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: She becomes a barefooter when she is the Queen of the Shadowkhan.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: She's been empowered and transformed a few times:
** First, she wore the Mark of Tarakudo tattoo, which turned her into the Queen of the Shadowkhan.
** Second, she got scratched by a cursed cat idol, which turned her into a CatGirl with feline agility and senses.
** Third, she absorbed all 12 Talisman powers.
** Fourth, she absorbed the chi of [[BlowYouAway Xiao Fung the Wind Demon]].
* EvilFeelsGood: She was unsettlingly eager to be rebranded with [[spoiler:the Mark of Tarakudo]] again, and was disappointed when Jackie vetoed it.
* TheFace: She's the one who formed the J-Team and has often spoken on the team's behalf, even if she's not asked to. Jackie is forced to admit this in "Weight and See", when he and Uncle go to Québec and have to deal with [[LanguageBarrier a French-speaking woman, who can't speak English]]. (Ironically, Jade was looking forward to practicing her French, only to be left behind again.)
--> '''Jackie''': Maybe we should have brought Jade.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: It becomes useful during the hunt for the Talisman-empowered animals.
** She adopts [[HeroesLoveDogs Scruffy]], the Noble Dog.
** While she doesn't think that the Noble Rat is cute, she won't let Daolon Wong harm it.
** In "Shell Game", she opts to saving Aesop the tortoise from being eaten rather than retrieving the Rabbit Talisman from the Dark Hand.
** In "The Curse Of El Chupcabra", when Paco is about to suggest that they hand the goat stock over to the Chupacabra, Jade forbids him to even finish that sentence.
* FutureBadass: Adult Jade became the leader of Section 13... at least until Future Captain Black got back and she was demoted.
* {{Gasshole}}: Pure belch variant in "Relics of Demons Past". Augmented when she accidentally turned into a Wind Demon.
* GenreSavvy: She often uses the knowledge gained from movies, comics and TV shows. Sometimes she's WrongGenreSavvy, but mostly she's the most GenreSavvy of the heroes.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: After the Mark of Tarakudo turned her evil (before it was finally removed), she claims the title of Queen of the Shadowkhan.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Jade has occasionally shown to be more ruthless than the other heroes. For example, without hesitation or remorse, Jade fires the Dragon Talisman to kill Shendu, who had already lost his {{immortality}} and was [[TakenForGranite turned into a statue]] again. Granted while [[AssholeVictim Shendu]] is an [[AlwaysChaoticEvil evil]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman demon]], he was already defeated and defenseless.
* GuileHeroine: She takes after her uncle in this regard. "Greatest victory is the battle not fought" and all that.
* HeroWorshipper: She really admires and respects [[CoolUncle Jackie]], especially as far as Paco is concerned with his hero El Toro.
* HulkingOut: Uses the Ox Talisman to do so in "The Amazing T-Troop", complete with a quick GrowingMusclesSequence.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Unlike Jackie, she finds their adventures to be very fun, and rarely sees any downside to them.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Tohru. They exchanged [[FriendshipTrinket yin-yang necklaces]] and everything; young and old, big and small etc.
* JustAKid: No matter what she does, she gets this treatment throughout the series, much to her annoyance.
* KickChick: When she fights, she tends to perform a flying kick.
* KidAppealCharacter: Type 3: a school-age kid that drops into Jackie's life as soon as the Section 13 business starts, i.e. Episode 1.
* KidSidekick: Unofficially of course, because she's a kid and a RecklessSidekick.
* TheKidsAreAmerican: She grew up in Hong Kong, but sounds like she grew up in Los Angeles. (Her voice actress is from Los Angeles.)
%%* TheLadette: A G-rated version.
* TheLancer: More aggressive than Jackie, more interested in the supernatural, and constantly subverting his orders.
* {{Leitmotif}}: When a quick flute tone is heard, you can bet Jade is up to something.
* LittleMissSnarker: She makes sassy quips all the time.
-->'''Jade''': ''(after Jackie accidentally causes their transport (a giant glider plane) to fly away)'' See? This is why we can't buy you anything nice.
* LittleStowaway: Regularly hides in Jackie's luggage in order to follow his adventures.
* LoopholeAbuse: She's a master user of this trope. A couple of examples:
-->'''Jade''': Just when you think you're out, they pull you back in. So can I-
-->'''Jackie and Black''': No. ''(drive off to fight the Talisman-powered Dark Hand)''
-->'''Jade''': ''(angry)'' Wouldn't even let me ask. ''(in realization)'' And if I didn't ask, how am I supposed to know what they said "no" to?

-->'''Jackie''': Jade, maybe you should go with Uncle.
-->'''Jade''': Aw! ''(walks off)''
-->'''Uncle''': ''(waves goodbye as his train departs)''
-->'''Jade''': I miss him already.
-->'''Jackie''': Jade! I told you to go with Uncle, not...stay...with...uncle...
-->'''Jade''': No wonder I got confused, too many uncles.
* TheNapoleon: She's not the type to take crap from anyone. And she hates being called [[NobodyCallsMeChicken "shrimp"]].
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: She has her share of moments like unwittingly solving Valmont's riddle ("Tohru Who") and kicking Ratso to an oni mask ("Samurai Ratso").
* OneOfTheBoys: She doesn't get a female role model until [[ClassyCatBurglar Viper]].
* PinkMeansFeminine: Subverted. Her luggage and nightgown are pink, but she is not feminine.
* PintSizedKid: She remains in her height of 3 feet throughout the series.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Her flying kick can knock down a full grown thug.
* PluckyGirl: This girl is not easy to break.
%%* PreAsskickingOneLiner: Loves to give these.
* PreMortemOneLiner: Before she fires the Dragon Talisman at Shendu, she dismisses his declaration of revenge.
--> '''Shendu''': I ''will'' have my revenge. If it takes ''another'' 900 years!
--> '''[[TranquilFury Jade]]''': Tch. No Rat means you're just a statue. And no Dog means, you're not immortal.
%%* ProhibitedHeroSavesTheDay:
* PsychoticSmirk: She has sometimes made these. Some fans have noted how similiar they are to the ones [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Azula]] has made.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Jade gains these in conjunction with [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette eerie pale skin]] and PowerEchoes as the Queen of the Shadowkhan.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Jackie's blue; more reckless, more excited, less cautious, and even wears red shoes.
* ScoutOut: A member of both the girl ''and'' boy scouts.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Jackie / Viper.
-->"She'd be such a cool aunt!"
* SlasherSmile: When Drew teases her one too many times after she tattoos herself with [[spoiler:Tarakudo's brand]], Jade flashes a particularly bloodthirsty grin, complete with her [[RedEyesTakeWarning irises turning dark red]], and summons some Shadowkhan to attack him. Fortunately for him, the bell snaps her back to her senses.
* TheSneakyGal: She often uses the StealthHiBye and SnoopingLittleKid tropes. In the first episode, she easily snuck into Section 13's base.
* SnoopingLittleKid: She tends to be involved to the plot this way. Valmont even lampshades it to Jackie in "The New Atlantis".
--> "So this is why your niece is always with you? And here I just thought you were horribly irresponsible."
* StealthHiBye: Bordering on OffscreenTeleportation. She's done it inside an {{MIB}} base and all the way to the ''Moon''.
* StreetSmart: She never seems to be uncomfortable walking in unfamiliar places.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Her honey colored eyes sometimes look golden. [[spoiler:See TheChosenOne section above.]]
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: Being branded with [[spoiler:the [[MarkOfTheBeast Mark of Tarakudo]]]] tattoo gave her control over the Shadowkhan, but slowly transformed her into a blue-skinned demon with glowing red eyes and fangs.
* TagalongKid: Despite Jackie's best efforts she follows him on his missions; [[LittleStowaway with or without his knowledge]].
* {{Tomboy}}: She has the crude demeanor, wears boyish clothes, has a skateboard, etc.
** The only time we see her wearing [[AgeInappropriateDress a dress]] was when she was the Queen of Shadowkhan, if you discount her nightgown.
** Also, she was obviously dismayed when Jackie signed her up for a girl scout troop.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: She's more often than not underestimated by everyone due to her age.
* WaifFu: Works on school bullies, less so on demons and it also [[ZigZaggedTrope varies]]. In one episode she's easily beating giant mooks including one who easily floored Jackie, and suddenly she's easily restrained by Finn, Chow, or Ratso.
* WaitHere:
-->'''Jade:''' "Tch. When will he learn?"
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Despite being a mischievous BrattyHalfPint, she shows signs of this trope at times. It's even lampshaded in "Lost City Of The Muntabs".
--> "You are so young, yet speak with the wisdom of an elder."

!!Uncle Chan
[[caption-width-right:256: That lizard is a deadly weapon. Seriously.]]
-->''Who else wants a piece of Uncle?''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Sab Shimono

Jackie's uncle and Jade's great-uncle. He runs an antique shop, and is also an expert wizard of chi magic. He's actually the cousin of (one of) her parents... [[LampshadeHanging they think]].
* AbusiveParents: Downplayed. Uncle treats his nephew rather poorly, shows little to no concern for the trouble Jackie goes through and slaps him a lot, which is the way a martial arts master would correct his students. But in "Through the Rabbit Hole", the past Uncle is not shown mistreating the child Jackie in any way, so his current behaviour probably started only after Jackie's childhood.
* AnimeHair: Look at his page image; it sticks up in several points.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: He knows about magic, Chinese demons, Santa Claus, and many other mythical things. But he initially refused to believe that Tarakudo is Japanese or that Oni exist. He also dismissed the importance of [[CardsOfPower Hana Fuda Cards]] and Miss Kimber's precognitions. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And he doesn't believe in the tooth fairy]].
* AsianRudeness: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in a Season 4 episode, when he was overly demanding and rude to Tohru (even more than usual), which caused Tohru to get mad at him, resulting in both not wanting to trade a word with each other. Later, when Tohru gets captured thanks to this, he realized how much of a jerk he was.
-->'''Uncle''': One more thing! [[LampshadeHanging I say "one more thing" a lot!]]
* AsianStoreOwner: Very protective of his antiques, and has [[OldMaster the skills]] [[WitchDoctor to back it up]].
* BadassBookworm: Uncle always performs extensive research about the [[MacGuffin magical artifact]] or {{monster of the week}}, which helps save the day.
* BadassGrandpa: ReconstructedTrope. He's too old to fight like he used to, but when he was young he didn't have magic, and it's magic that ultimately defeats the bad guys.
* BadassNormal: His blowfish is more or less a magic gun, and the other spells can be done by anyone, even Jade, who has no idea what she's doing.
* BirthdayHater: "When I am another year ''younger'', I will celebrate."
* BlowingARaspberry: When he sabotages Daolon Wong's Talisman power-locator connection in "Monkey A Go-Go", Wong sees him doing this thrice "onscreen".
** He does this to Wong two times when he's in his astral form in "The Ox-Head Incident".
* CatchPhrase: He has many phrases, including:
** "Jackieeee!"
** "[[AndAnotherThing One more thing!]]"
** "[[BigNo AIYAAAH!]]" (Whenever he's shocked.)
** "Yu Mo Gwai Gui Fai Di Zao!" (Chinese for "Evil demons and malevolent spirits, be gone!". This is his most often used spell, with a wide variety of functions.)
** "[[TakesOneToKillOne Magic must defeat magic!]]"
** "[X] is not important!"
** "We must do research!"
** "Talk later!"
** "You want Uncle to do [X]? Yes/No? Then let Uncle work in peace!"
** "You want a piece of Uncle?"
** "Eating garlic is good for you!"
** "[X] is good for digestion".
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: It comes with his job description as a Chi Wizard.
* {{Cool Old|Guy}} [[CoolUncle Uncle]]: Jackie, Jade, and Tohru very much look up to him.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He comes off as an eccentric and grouchy geezer, until he demonstrates his magical and martial expertise.
* DeadpanSnarker: The most sarcastic fellow around, with Jade following him by a close second.
* DetectEvil: He gets the "willies" when evil forces - Daolon Wong, Dark Chi Warriors... - are near. But he doesn't get them when Oni are near.
* DopeSlap: A {{running gag}} has him hitting Jackie in the head with a two-fingered strike every time he does or says something wrong. He has also done this to Captain Black, Tohru, Jackie's Yang side, Daolon Wong, Hak Foo, [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu Hsi Wu]], [[LivingToys Super Moose]], and at least twice ''himself''. Ironically, he's never shown doing this to [[WouldntHurtAChild Jade]] or [[WouldntHitAGirl Tohru's mother]].
* EccentricMentor: Tohru's magic mentor, and has more than a few quirks.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: One time, a [[ChineseVampire Jiangshi]] drained Uncle's chi, turning him into an evil vampire minion with {{super strength}}.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He's just known as Uncle to everybody (except Mamma Tohru who calls him [[EmbarrassingNickname "Billy Goat"]]).
* GoodIsNotNice: Uncle's obviously not the friendliest character on the show, but he does fight for his family and the side of good.
* GrumpyOldMan: He's been shown happy exactly ''twice'' in five seasons, and one of them was a magic induced dream.
* HonoraryUncle: He's ''everyone's'' Uncle. Really.
* InsistentTerminology: Jackie "fell asleep". "Uncle merely resting brain".
* InsufferableGenius: He's right about everything magical (mostly) and whenever he says "Magic must defeat magic".
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He often yells and slaps others, especially his nephew, and he lacks tact, but he does show his softer side every now and then.
* KungFuWizard: He's an expert at both kung fu and chi magic, skills which he taught Jackie and Tohru respectively.
* {{Leitmotif}}: His is some sort of a Chinese stringed instrument.
* MagicWand: Uncle uses an enchanted [[PufferFish blowfish]] and lizard to cast spells, or to fire [[KiAttack chi energy beams]] in combat.
* TabletopGame/{{Mahjong}}: He enjoys this game. He states that he was the Hong Kong Community Center Champion in 1955, but he loses several times to Tohru's mother. He says she cheats; "Every time I sneeze, you move a piece!"
* MeanBoss: He can often be an overbearing nagger towards Jackie, Tohru, and anyone else who is working under him (like Section 13 agents or [[spoiler:the Enforcers]]). It became the root of the feud between himself and Tohru in [[FeudEpisode "The Demon Behind"]].
--> '''Uncle''': ''(after Tohru snaps at him for ordering him around)'' You disrespect Uncle? Uncle took you in. Put roof over your head. Put food in your belly. ''Lots'' of food, and this is how you repay me?
--> '''Tohru''': I cook. I clean. I travel the world to be smothered in ''fish''. And you thank me by demanding (imitates Uncle) "many more things".
* MentorArchetype: Old, wise, and takes a formal apprentice.
* NoNameGiven: Just call him "Uncle".
%%* OffhandBackhand:
* OldMaster: Who taught Jackie his martial arts and Tohru his magic?
* ParentalSubstitute: It would seem that he did the job of raising up Jackie.
* PressurePoint: If it's not a chi spell or kick, it's this. Again because it's a powerful art that can be used by old and frail people.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: Established in the pilot: "You no make coffee this morning! Coffee is the only thing keeping Uncle's ancient heart beating. You want dead Uncle? No? ''Then you make coffee''!"
* SitcomArchNemesis: He has it with Kai Ching, Tohru's mother, and Ms. Kimber. He takes them as seriously as Daolon Wong.
* SoLastSeason: His knowledge of Chinese magic becomes near useless during Season 4 due to the Oni being Japanese instead of Chinese like previous season villains. He learns to cope, but often sometimes it's through very slow impractical methods, such as spending hours transcribing with the help of a Japanese-to-Chinese dictionary.
* SpecsOfAwesome: Those specs aren't just for show, as Uncle uses them to read Chinese fine print.
* StrollingThroughTheChaos: He can be found casually making his way through a battlefield in order to find some magical dohickey.
* TheSmartGuy: When something magical happens, he's usually the only one with any idea what's going on.
* TechnologicallyBlindElders: Uncle doesn't know how to use computers and fax machines. In fact he smashed Jade's laptop because he thought it was cursed by dark magic.
* ThirdPersonPerson: He mostly refers to himself as "Uncle" instead of "I".
* TookALevelInBadass:
** When he used the Dog Talisman, which mentioned only in its first appearance makes the wearer as strong as they were in their prime as well as granting CompleteImmortality. While he was already {{Badass}}, with the talisman he was nearly unstoppable, Hak Foo only managed to hit him once in the entire episode.
** As Jade states in one episode, Uncle's spells keep on becoming more awesome.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Mung beans and garlic. They're good for digestion, you know.
* WitchDoctor: His chi spells involve ingredients like [[EyeOfNewt "eel saliva" and "hair of ewe"]].

[[caption-width-right:196: Crunch.]]
-->''I hate fish.''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Noah Nelson

A Japanese sumo wrestler who was once a Dark Hand enforcer, but he defects to the Chans. He works for Uncle at his antique shop, and becomes his apprentice in chi magic.
* TheApprentice: Becomes one for Uncle's chi magic knowledge.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Before he [[HeelFaceTurn became a good guy]], he threw his weight around.
* {{Badass}}: He could at times be the better of Jackie in his early appearances. And later on, he also defeated the original three Dark Chi Warriors single-handedly, after Jackie struggled with them the entire episode.
* BadassBaritone: His voice is deeper than those of the other heroes, or most of the villains.
* BadassNormal: Even after he learns magic, he relies much more on his natural strength and fighting spirit than it.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Once his friendship with Jade is settled, hurting her becomes one of the ways to ''really'' set him off. As he says to Valmont, "If anything happens to her, I will turn you ''inside out''."
* BigEater: One of his defining traits (commenting that part of his [[HeelFaceTurn defection]] was hearing that Section 13 served donuts on Thursdays). In fact, the only time he ''didn't'' have an appetite was in "Pleasure Cruise" when he got seasick.
* TheBigGuy: As a good guy he is the big and heavy hitter for the J-Team.
* BrickJoke: Tohru joined Section 13 because of an earlier episode, when Jackie suggested this to him on the statement that they serve doughnuts on Tuesdays.
* TheBrute: As a member of the Dark Hand before his [[HeelFaceTurn redemption]], he was the big muscle head for the BigBad.
* ButtMonkey: More when he was a bad guy, but the comical mishaps happens when he's good too.
* CatchPhrase:
** "[[BattleCry NYAR!]]"
** "I hate fish."
** "[Hand over] the Talisman." (When he worked for the Dark Hand.)
** "What?" (When someone looks at him like he's done something wrong.)
* CharacterDevelopment: He undergoes the most visible one in the series. He starts out in the series as TheDragon to Valmont but then leaves The Dark Hand and joins Section 13. Over time, he also develops a close IntergenerationalFriendship with Jade and starts a magic apprenticeship under Uncle, eventually becoming a powerful Chi Wizard in his own right.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Do you think he was born with those muscles? All that strength came from hard work.
* CriminalAmnesiac: In "Tohru Who?", Valmont [[LaserGuidedAmnesia erases Tohru's memories with a potion]] and manipulates him into thinking that he still serves the Dark Hand. And he acts exactly like he did while he served them. Fortunately, it's resolved.
* DetectEvil: He gets the willies when an Oni is present.
* DisappearedDad: While Tohru's mother is a recurring character, his father is never even mentioned.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:In the finale, he is buried underneath Section 13 when the Ice Gang destroys it. But after he gets dug out, he turns out to be alive and well.]]
* DontTellMama: His mother is unaware that he was a thug working for Valmont and not knowing that the latter is a crime boss.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis I. Hate. Fish.]]"
* TheDragon: Replaced by Hak Foo as Valmont's number one enforcer.
* DrinkOrder: Grape soda's his favorite; grape soda.
* EasilyForgiven: Surprisingly, after everything he puts the Chans through during the first season (like almost slicing Jade's stomach open while she was conscious), he's rather quickly accepted as one of them.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal:
** Once when he got tattooed with [[spoiler:the Mark of Tarakudo]], which turns him into a "[[BrainwashedAndCrazy King of the Shadowkhan]]".
** Another time, he absorbed the chi of [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Po Kong the Mountain Demon]].
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Sure, Tohru's Mom wasn't even mentioned before his [[HeelFaceTurn reformation]], but the fact that he kept his criminal life a secret from her even then shows the DontTellMama aspect of the trope.
* FatBastard: Before he [[HeelFaceTurn becomes a good guy]], he was a corpulent henchman.
* GeniusBruiser: After he learns magic. And even before that, he's not exactly a DumbMuscle guy.
* GentleGiant: After his [[HeelFaceTurn turn to the side of good]], he is a mountain of a man and a NiceGuy.
* GoodFeelsGood: Tohru decides that he enjoys serving the Chans much more than the {{ungrateful|bastard}} Valmont.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Even after his [[HeelFaceTurn redemption]], he requires less provocation than Jackie to start beating down the bad guys.
* GotVolunteered: He didn't ask to become Uncle's apprentice and was shocked when the old wizard just picked him up.
* HeelFaceTurn: After Valmont's and Shendu's mistreatment of him, he quits his life of crime to help out the Chan family.
* HiddenDepths: Although initially introduced as Valmont's loyal and most powerful (but somewhat dimwitted) enforcer, Tohru would eventually show that he's actually a GentleGiant when not being goaded by Valmont. Later on it's revealed that he takes to Chi Magic extremely fast, and is actually gifted when it comes to the Japanese version of Chi Magic, briefly outdoing ''Uncle'' in magic.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With Jade being the Tiny Girl to his Huge Guy. She would often sit on his shoulder.
* IAmNotMyFather: In "Mirror, Mirror", he almost shouts this when Jade accuses him of acting in an overprotective way like his mother. In the same episode, an evil mirror spirit turns him into a gigantic version of his mother, as it is his biggest fear.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Jade, as he becomes protective of her after his HeelFaceTurn. It's surprising seeing as the first time they were seen together he wanted to ''cut her open'' since she accidentally swallowed the Rooster Talisman.
* KungFuWizard: After training under Uncle, he adds magic to his formidable physical power.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Sometimes when he appears, a base drum can be heard.
* LoadBearingHero: [[spoiler:He does this to give Jade time to escape Section 13 when it's destroyed in the GrandFinale.]]
* MadeOfIron: He has fallen from great heights more than once, yet [[OnlyAFleshWound he always recovers from his injuries]]. [[spoiler:Not even bringing the whole Section 13 on him is enough to permanently injure him.]]
* MightyGlacier: Both during his time as a member of the Dark Hand and The J-Team, he was the biggest, slowest, and strongest member.
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: He got most of the blame during the 1st season for the Enforcers' failures, and it helped to play out his HeelFaceTurn.
* MommasBoy: Loves his mom, and her approval means so much it crosses into WellDoneSonGuy. In fact, he usually addresses her with an affectionate "Mommy", even when in danger.
* PerpetualFrowner: He mostly kept his face scowled while he served the Dark Hand.
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Jackie, to him, many, many times in the first season, because of his muscle and bulk.
* TheQuietOne: He has always been a man of few words.
* RedemptionPromotion: He was already intimidating as a henchman, then he [[HeelFaceTurn turned a new leaf]] and learned magic.
* ReformedButRejected: Although it doesn't take long for the Chans to accept him, the authorities still have lingering suspicion of him, [[ItMakesSenseInContext as he was being framed for some thefts by a pair of magic gloves]].
* SamuraiPonytail: You might view Tohru's hairstyle as the second variety of this trope. He's quite reserved, down to earth and an aggressive fighter. [[spoiler:It turns out that he has a samurai ancestor.]]
* SignedUpForTheDental: The first thing he said upon announcing his HeelFaceTurn was "I'm told Section 13 serves doughnuts on Tuesdays". [[CallBack He was parroting an offer Jackie made earlier]] but still.
* TheSmartGuy: After his HeelFaceTurn he is training to be one as Uncle's apprentice.
* StaircaseTumble: A running gag for the poor man. Almost always a long, spiral staircase.
--> [[AnythingButThat "NOT THE STAIRS!"]]
* StoutStrength: He is morbidly obese but also very muscular. It's mandatory for someone with the physique of a sumo wrestler.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:He gets Tarakudo's mark because Jackie doesn't want Jade to be the Queen of the Shadowkhan again.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: He starts out as an intimidating GiantMook. By the end of the series, he's a full chi wizard.
* TookALevelInKindness: He goes from a stern, intimidating and ruthless FatBastard to a more relaxed, helpful and protective GentleGiant.
* {{Turncoat}}: He leaves the Dark Hand for the Chans in the finale of the 1st season and fights against his former cohorts for the rest of the series.
* UndyingLoyalty: To the Chan family after he befriends them.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: His fear of Oni. As a child he dreaded them. The fact that they turn out to be real is a problem for him.
* WouldntHitAGirl: After his HeelFaceTurn. It gives him trouble when he faces [[DarkActionGirl a female wrestler]] in one episode.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Jade calls him a sumo wrestler, though Tohru insists that he's not.

[[folder:Section 13 and J-Team]]
Section 13 is a government intelligence facility commanded by Captain Black. The "J-Team" is what Jade calls the Chan family's various allies.
* {{Badass}}es: They've battled all kinds of evil, from low-life criminals to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu demonic overlords]].
* BadassCrew: Jade likes to think of Jackie's friends as being like a superhero team, [[YouWatchTooMuchX much to his disbelief]].
* BadassNormal: None of them were born with any special powers, although they occasionally use magic objects.
* TheBusCameBack: During the last season, El Toro, Paco, and Viper appear only in a brief non-speaking appearance in "Black And White Chi All Over", but show up for the FinalBattle.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: They've all been temporarily transformed into something not quite human at least once.
* FiveTokenBand: If you count both the Chan Clan and J-Team together, they're a diverse bunch. The Chans are Chinese, Tohru is Japanese, El Toro and Paco are Mexican, Viper is {{ambiguously brown}}, and Captain Black is the only member of the group to be an unambiguously non-Hispanic white American.

!!Captain Augustus Black
[[caption-width-right:279: Whoa, Nellie!]]
-->''The only King I bow to is [[Music/ElvisPresley Elvis]], and I don't see [[OracularHead you]] wearing blue suede shoes.''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ClancyBrown

The head of Section 13 and Jackie's long-time friend. First he doesn't believe in magic, but that changed when he saw Shendu.
* AgentScully: In Season 1, he never believes in anything supernatural, [[SkepticNoLonger but then he sees Shendu in full demon form, the palace the demon summons, and the portal to another dimension with more like him]]. From Season 2 onwards, he's AgentMulder. [[MortonsFork Much to the concern of his superiors.]]
* BadassBaritone: Being voiced by ClancyBrown.
* BadassBeard: His future self has grown a goatee.
* BadassLongcoat: He is always seen with a black jacket.
* BadassNormal: Like Jackie he has no powers, and like Jackie he still kicks superpowered evil butt.
%%* BaldOfAwesome
* BewareTheNiceOnes: [[spoiler:Normally when the Tiger Talisman splits a person into yin and yang twins, the yin side is usually a sickeningly passive wimp who is too scared to fight. In his case... it's just him as he normally is; a {{Badass}}.]]
* BigGood: TheLeader of Section 13 which is the vanguard of humanity against demons and evil human organizations alike.
* ButtMonkey: He tends to get injured fairly often. And after Season 1, he gets no respect from his superiors for his claims about magic and demons.
* CatchPhrase: "Whoa, Nellie."
* TheCaptain: The man in charge of Section 13.
* NamesToRunAwayFrom/{{Colors}}: Averted: despite his surname being Black, he's one of the good guys. However, when he's possessed by [[spoiler:an Oni Mask]], he remarks at one point his surname to be appropriate for being the color of Darkness.
* ContagiousCassandraTruth: After witnessing demons and magic first hand, he tries to report it to his superiors, but they decide he's gone crazy. He has to take Rorschach tests where he thinks all the images are demons!
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: While wearing the Sumo Khan Oni Mask, he not only becomes more powerful personally, but he also replaces Section 13's human agents with the Shadowkhan.
* FriendOnTheForce: He helps Jackie stay out of trouble with the authorities.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: After [[spoiler:accidentally wearing an Oni mask]], he is uncorrupted by it [[spoiler:until Tarakudo tricks him into releasing Shadowkhan]].
* InkblotTest: He's forced to undergo this in "Rumble In The Big House". All he sees are "Demon. Demon. Socks... worn by a really big demon."
* JackOfAllStats: Unlike most of the other cast, he's not remarkably strong, fast or durable, but he's shown to have a decent fighting prowess in those few times he's actually seen fighting.
* MissionControl: For Jackie and his J-Team allies on adventures where magic isn't the main concern.
* MortonsFork: Before he believed in magic, he was incapable of dealing with magical threats due to lack of intel and expertise. After he was convinced magic existed, his superiors refused to believe him, questioned his mental health (especially when magical items went inert), and ''still'' didn't provide him with the resources needed to deal with magic.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: He's the badass leader to a secret agency equipped with state of the art weapons and scientific equipment, but compared to Jackie, his family, the J-Team, and the supernatural villains, he just can't compare because they don't have a magic department.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Understandably skeptical of supernatural, until he gets proof at the end of the first season.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:When he ends up wearing an Oni Mask, then after Jade splits him into good and evil halves with the Tiger Talisman, the evil half gets the mask.]]
* TokenWhite: Among the good guys, he's the only significant and unambiguously Caucasian character.

!!El Toro Fuerte
[[caption-width-right:300: He sleeps with his mask.]]
-->''This is no costume, Captain Black. This is a way of life.''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Miguel Sandoval

A Mexican wrestler who Jackie meets on his search for the Ox Talisman. He becomes a friend who occasionally helps the Chans on their missions.
* {{Acrofatic}}: He's somewhat stout, but still an agile fighter.
* BadassBeard: He has a small chin beard.
* BadassInANiceSuit: If he's not wearing his wrestling outfit, he usually wears a formal business suit.
* BadassNormal: He's introduced with the [[SuperStrength Ox Talisman]], but (excluding more serious fights) never uses it after his first episode.
* BaldOfAwesome: Downplayed. Normally, his entire head is covered by his wrestling mask.
* TheBigGuy: After Tohru, he is the big and heavy hitter for the J-team.
* BrokenPedestal: Paco is heartbroken after his idol is proven to be a fraud, but after witnessing how El Toro decides to stop using the Ox Talisman to win his fights, this trope [[RebuiltPedestal is subverted]].
* CatchPhrase:
** "El Toro Fuerte [[MaskedLuchador NEVER removes his mask!]]"
** "Sorry."
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: He once had the Curse of the {{Chupacabra}}, which turned him into a goat-eating monster every night.
* TheFaceless: Subverted. Despite his catchphrase, we get several looks at his face throughout the series, mostly not of his own accord.
* FakeUltimateHero: In his debut appearance, he was the greatest wrestler of Mexico, but he secretly used the Ox Talisman to secure his position. After the humbling destruction of his image, he decides to fight honestly, defying this trope for the rest of the series.
* FriendToAllChildren: He's quite nice to both Paco and Jade. And during the finale, he takes a moment to affectionately address a baby.
* GentleGiant: A really nice guy, despite the mask and muscles.
* GratuitousSpanish: He only uses Spanish when talking to Paco and his family.
* HeroicBSOD: After the Dark Hand take the Ox Talisman away from him and Paco, heartbroken to know his idol is a cheater, runs away; El Toro is left feeling ashamed and unworthy. Fortunately, after Jade demands him to help saving Jackie and he decides to stop using the Talisman once and for all, he regains his idols' admiration and his own self-respect.
* TheKlutz: He has a tendency to act impulsively, often accidentally injuring Jackie in the process.
--> "[[ApologisesALot Sorry.]]"
* {{Leitmotif}}: Slow Spanish guitar strummings.
* MaskedLuchador: This is both his day job and his way of life.
* MeaningfulName: His name means in Spanish "The Strong Bull".
* MightyGlacier: {{Downplayed}}. He's about as strong as Tohru. He's fast and agile, but not as agile as Jackie or Viper.
* NoNameGiven: [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname "El Toro Fuerte" is his stage name]].
* TheRival: To Tohru in his initial episode. In his second appearance, they briefly get into another scuffle due to a misunderstanding, but after it was explained that Tohru was [[HeelFaceTurn now good]], they become close allies.
* SpandexLatexOrLeather: Spandex in his wrestling costume.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: The episode "Aztec Rat Race" reveals him to have musophobia, a fear of mice and rats.
* WouldntHurtAChild: Jade [[CombatPragmatist takes advantage of this]].
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Even without the Ox Talisman, he's strong enough to enter a BrawlerLock with the more massive Tohru.

[[caption-width-right:210:El Toro is the greatest!]]
-->''El Toro is the greatest!''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Franco Velez

El Toro’s self-proclaimed "biggest fan", who apparently is apprenticed under his idol. If El Toro is near, expect him to not be far behind.
* BirdsOfAFeather: In most episodes, his personality is basically a slightly more jerkish version of Jade's. In an interesting example of this trope, rather than making them instantly get along it's usually thanks to this trope that they fight so much - but at the same time, they are able to drop it and be friends in a moment whenever they need to.
* CatchPhrase: "El Toro is the greatest!"
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He was more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold in earlier episodes, but becomes more passive and childish in later episodes - possibly because of fan reaction to his earlier personality.
* TheDragAlong: Though he is not necessarily unwilling and is generally quick on the uptake, it's usually Jade pulling him along on their adventures - especially during the J-Team episodes, where "Jade sneaks off with Paco in tow while the adults are distracted and saves the day" is a running gag.
* {{Fanboy}}: Self-professed to be El Toro's biggest fan.
%%* GratuitousSpanish
* HeroWorshipper: El Toro is Paco's ideal in both professional aspirations and daily life.
* HeroicWillpower: [[spoiler:Of all the Oni Mask wearers, he's the only one who manages to pull it off all by himself.]]
* HiddenDepths: [[spoiler:He shows how much of a hero he can be when he manages to break free from the MindControl of one of the Oni Masks.]]
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: At the center of one in season four because of an oni mask.
* KidSidekick: For El Toro like Jade is for Jackie, but the difference is that El Toro is more receptive to the idea, at least as far as the wrestling ring.
* LegacyCharacter: Looking to become a luchador like El Fuerte. He's even got a miniature version of his costume in season 4.
%%* TheLoad: Plays this role somewhat in the Chupacabra episode, but this is absent in all of his subsequent appearances.
* MyDadCanBeatUpYourDad: While it's an uncle and a personal hero involved, the argument plays out the same. Repeatedly. "Jackie!" "El Toro!" "Jackie!" "El Toro!"
* NonActionGuy: Though he tries to, he just can't fare in action as well as Jade.
** In the GrandFinale, [[spoiler:Jade tosses the Sheep Talisman to Paco, which leaves him out of most of the FinalBattle]].
* ParentalAbandonment: His parents are never mentioned. El Toro - who is probably not his father - serves as a [[ParentalSubstitute father-like figure]] to Paco.
* PintSizedKid: Like Jade, he remains at that same height throughout the series.
* PrecociousCrush: He is strongly implied to have an unrequited crush on Jade.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:In the Halloween episode, he puts on the Squid Khan Oni Mask, and calls himself "El Paco Diablo".]]
* TagalongKid: One more time, he hangs around El Toro.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Jade. As earlier said in BirdsOfAFeather, they can go from fighting to cooperating very quickly.

[[caption-width-right:130: EX-super thief]]
-->''Jackie! Hey, sorry about the double-cross...''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SusanEisenberg

An (ex-)thief who Jackie gets caught up with in the search for the Snake Talisman. HilarityEnsues. From the second season on, she drops in from time to time to help the Chans.
* ActionGirl: She's an expert thief who is on the same level with Jackie in terms of martial arts.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: She is noticeably darker-skinned than most of the other main characters but her exact ethnicity is never revealed.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: She hosted a Hanukkah party in the Christmas episode.
* AntiHero: From her second appearance onward she is an ally, but not as heroic or law-abiding as Jackie.
* AntiVillain: During her first appearance she is a cat burglar, who is not above sabotaging agreements for her own advantage. However, she's only interested in using the Snake Talisman to advance her career of a thief, nothing more sinister.
* BadassNormal: Similar to Captain Black and El Toro, she's a non-powered martial artist that takes on demons and wizards.
* TheChick: Downplayed. The only official female member of the J-Team and an implied LoveInterest, but she's hardly a moral center.
* ClassyCatBurglar: She is very refined, graceful, and elegant, and also an extremely efficient thief.
* CoolBigSis: Jade sees her as a role model, much to Jackie’s chagrin.
* DarkActionGirl: In her debut episode she was still a professional super thief.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Before her HeelFaceTurn, she was amoral, but not particularly sinister. And though she remains as a cynical individual, she regularly assists her new friends.
%%* DeadpanSnarker:
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: In "Demon World (Part 2)", Jade uses the Book of the Ages to turn Viper into a {{cyborg}} in order to give her an edge against Bai Tza.
* FragileSpeedster: She's highly agile, but she's not shown to be good at getting hit.
* GenkiGirl: She acts like one in "The J-Tots", when all the adults were turned into little kids.
* HeelFaceTurn: After her introduction, she reformed and becomes a security consultant.
* InsistentTerminology: "EX-super thief."
* LastMinuteHookup: The relationship between her and Jackie is never handled beyond LoveInterest, but the finale seems to imply that this trope comes to play.
* {{Leitmotif}}: One that reminds of old detective series.
* LoveInterest: To Jackie, though he doesn't admit any romantic feelings for her. [[ShipperOnDeck But Jade really would love to see this happen]].
* MoralityPet: Her first few appearances after her HeelFaceTurn make it clear that her friendship with Jade and the fact that Jade looks up to her (which she almost lost the first time she scammed Jade and Jackie) is one of the major reasons she switched sides. Jade asking is also the main reason she joined the J-Team in the first place.
* MsFanservice: Her most common outfit is a SpyCatsuit.
* NoNameGiven: [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname "Viper" it's obviously not her real name]].
%%* PinkMeansFeminine: Her casual attire is usually a pink dress.
* ReformedButNotTamed: She may have given up her criminal life, but she's no less dismissive of authority or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking fond of her burglar gadgets]].
* ReformedButRejected: She's an ''ex'' super thief, but Jackie doesn't believe her. He gradually trusts her more over time.
* RecruitingTheCriminal: Jade calls her to help capture Origami, using this logic.
* ReformedCriminal: The super thief is now a security consultant
%%* SheFu:
* ShesGotLegs: If she's not wearing her SpyCatsuit, we get to see her legs sometimes.
* WomanInBlack: Her cat suit is black and she is an EX-super thief.

[[folder:The Dark Hand]]
The most recurring enemies in the series, yet also the least threatening. The Dark [[NamesToRunAwayFrom/BodyPart Hand]] is a criminal gang based in San Francisco. They shift their focus from regular organized crime to assisting various demons and sorcerers. Things keep going further downhill for them from there.
* {{Butt Monkey}}s: All of them receive a lot of comical abuse, and increasingly so with every season.
* DemotedToExtra: Eventually the Dark Hand disbands, so the former members of the gang only appear in 3 episodes of Season 5.
* TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily: Despite being gangsters, they're very incompetent, and they aren't really seen committing any crimes besides robbery. Finn is seen carrying a pistol twice, but he never gets the chance to use it.
* FiveTokenBand: Valmont is British (English), Finn is Irish-American, Chow is Chinese-American, Ratso may be Italian-American, and Hak Foo is Chinese. The group also originally included Tohru, who is Japanese.
* {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s: Because of all the supernatural crap going on, they never get to score any cash.
* OddlySmallOrganization: It's strange that Valmont would rely mostly on the Enforcers since the 1st season included nameless {{Mook}}s. [[FridgeBrilliance Probably the Talisman hunt took a toll on the Dark Hand's finances]].
* OffstageVillainy: According to Captain Black, they have connections to nearly every known forms of criminal activity, but it isn't much shown. However, it speaks volumes that when Valmont, Finn and Ratso allow themselves to be arrested in "Rumble In The Big House", they're sentenced to be incarcerated for fifty years in Hollowlands Maximum Security Prison.
* TheSyndicate: They are said to be this in the beginning of the 1st season as they've given Section 13 trouble in the past. [[VillainDecay This status ends during the 1st or 2nd season]].
* VillainDecay: They start out as TheSyndicate, but by the beginning of the 3rd season, they're so high and dry that [[ShockinglyExpensiveBill a simple cafeteria bill]] gives them trouble.

[[caption-width-right:158:This suit costs more than your life.]]
-->''Jackie Chan. Finally, we meet. It was nice knowing you.''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Julian Sands (Seasons 1 and 2), Andrew Ableson (Season 3), Creator/GregEllis (Season 4) and Thomas Dekker (child)

The British-born boss of the American crime syndicate, the Dark Hand. He is also the main villain in Seasons 1 and 2, behind Shendu. Eventually he loses leadership over his Enforcers, and is reduced to poverty.
* BackForTheFinale: In his last appearance, he became [[spoiler:a bus driver]]. He doesn't speak, nor is he involved in the plot anyhow.
* {{Badass}}: He managed to give Jackie ''serious'' trouble in "The Rock", but after the 2nd season, [[BadassDecay he no longer qualifies as a badass]].
* BadassLongRobe: Shendu forces him to wear a sorcerer's robe until the demon is exorcised from his body. Valmont hates it, viewing it to look too much like [[{{Crossdresser}} a dress]].
* BadassNormal: He used the Dragon Talisman on one occasion, but otherwise he's bare handed in fights.
* BeardOfSorrow: Downplayed. After losing the Enforcers, he grows a stubble for the rest of the series. However, he doesn't have it in "Tohru Who?" and [[spoiler:"The Powers That Be (Part 2)"]].
* BullyingADragon: He has done this with Shendu and Daolon Wong.
* ButtMonkey: Beginning in Season 2 after Shendu [[DemonicPossession possesses his body]]. It only [[HumiliationConga gets worse for him beyond there]].
* CatchPhrase: "[[ThisIsGonnaSuck Blast.]]"
* ClassyCane: He carries this with him in the first season. It has [[SwordCane an electrically charged dagger]] inside it. He uses it much less in the second season, and afterwards he ceases to carry it at all.
* CrazyPrepared: He had a homing beacon for a false tooth that would cause his cane to levitate to his position and said cane held an electrically charged dagger.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Even at his worst and wimpiest up until season 5, he always had at least one example of this trope. The best one was in "The Rock" when he was smart enough to ''[[DefiedTrope not]]'' [[CarryingTheAntidote keep the antidote to cure Jackie's infliction on his person]].
--> "You think I'd be foolish enough to bring it with me?"
* DeadpanSnarker: Both to allies and enemies. He can occasionally make a masterful snark or two. One example is in "Project A, For Astral": after Shendu has berated the Dark Hand for their failures in retrieving the Talismans, he tries that himself through AstralProjection. After Uncle exorcises him from Jade's body, making him unable to leave his statue form, Valmont has this to say:
--> "Shendu! Back so soon? What, no Talismans?"
* DeceptiveDisciple: Once to some Sri Lankan monks in another power play to get back on top.
* DemonicPossession: By Shendu. It's not full-out possession as Shendu was aiming for Jackie, resulting in Valmont and Shendu constantly bickering and fighting for control, as thanks to a spell Shendu was unable to leave until his siblings released him.
* DemotedToExtra: From the third season onward. In season five, his only appearances are two brief, non-speaking cameos.
* DiabolicalMastermind: He's the one running the Dark Hand, and the driving force behind the first season.
%%* DirtyCoward:
* TheDragon: To Shendu in Season 1. He works for the dragon to acquire a promised treasure.

* EnemyMine: Thrice he goes to the Chans for help:

** Third when he no longer wants his half of the Crab Khan Oni Mask.
* EvilBrit: It is mentioned in one episode that he was originally an exchange student from the UK.

* FightingFromTheInside: How he fights with Shendu in season 2 and with an Oni mask in one episode of season 4.
* GrandTheftMe: In Season 2, when he is forced to share his body with Shendu.

* GreenAndMean: His money-green suit reflects his insatiable greed.
* TheHeavy: To Shendu in season 1 because Shendu is a statue. He was the moving the plot forward because almost all Shendu could do was talk.
* HowTheMightyHaveFallen: TheLeader of a high-class malevolent organization in the first season, reduced to a has-been dreaming of his former glory in the third and fourth seasons. By the fifth he became a ''[[spoiler:bus driver]]'' with a brief, non-speaking cameo in the finale.
* IcyBlueEyes: They turn red when he's possessed by Shendu.

* {{Jerkass}}: See the ItsAllAboutMe and UngratefulBastard for more information.

By the SeriesFinale, he has a cameo appearance where it is shown that he has been reduced to being a ''[[spoiler: bus driver]]''.
%%* TheVoiceless: Becomes this for the last season.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: For someone as young as him, white hair is clearly an evil marker.

!!The Enforcers
[[caption-width-right:320:Reusable henchmen, by ''four'' villains. From left to right: Hak Foo, Chow, Finn, and Ratso.]]
-->''All that world domination stuff just doesn't pay the rent.''

A group of hired thugs. They consist primarily of the main trio of Finn, Ratso, and Chow; and occasionally Hak Foo. Tohru was an Enforcer until his [[HeelFaceTurn redemption]].

Originally they worked for Valmont, and by extension for Shendu. Later in Season 3, they are enslaved by Daolon Wong, who turned them into his new Dark Chi Warriors. Later they work for Tarakudo in Season 4. But in Season 5, when Drago employs them, he turns them down after they fail him once.
* AffablyEvil: Finn, Ratso, and Chow are pretty good friends with each other, and not without some amicability towards their foes. Hak Foo, on the other hand, is [[{{Jerkass}} somewhat more arrogant]].
* BackForTheFinale: [[spoiler:During the last season, Hak Foo doesn't have a single appearance, and the others appear only in two episodes. But in the last episode, they suddenly appear to assist the heroes, having apparently [[HeelFaceTurn reformed]] off-screen.]]
* BeingEvilSucks: As Finn, Ratso, and Chow state when they show up to the Chans' doorsteps to announce their desire to reform:
-->'''Ratso''': We're tired of never making money.
-->'''Chow''': We're tired of being enslaved by dragons, wizards, and floating demon heads!
-->'''Finn''': But most of all, we're tired of getting our butts kicked... by you.
-->'''Ratso''': Yeah, it hurts.
* BigThinShortTrio: Ratso, Finn, and Chow, respectively. Hak Foo also qualifies as Big.
* BodyHorror: The main trio are freaked out when Daolon Wong forcibly turns them into his new [[HumanoidAbomination Dark Chi Warriors]]. Later, Drago transforms them briefly into [[DraconicHumanoid draconic minions]].
* {{Butt Monkey}}s: From start to finish, the Enforcers are walking jokes. They are on the receiving end of a lot of slapstick, are defeated in most fights, and are treated poorly by their bosses for their repeated failures.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Finn, Ratso, and Chow get three episodes -- ''Tough Luck'', ''The Good Guys'' and ''Dragon Scouts'' -- where they're acting independently of any of the {{Big Bad}}s. In ''Shrink Rap'', Hak Foo functions as the sole antagonist.
* {{Dirty Coward}}s: Finn, Ratso, and Chow. Though given their poor track record when it comes to combat, it may be justified.
** {{Lovable Coward}}s: [[spoiler:In the series finale, while Hak Foo joins the fight against Drago and his minions, the main trio decides not to. Instead they just stand back and watch, though they presumably root for the heroes.]]
* EvilParentsWantGoodKids: Finn, Ratso, and Chow each have a nephew about Jade's age, named Frank, Rocco, and Charlie respectively. The nephews are totally unaware of their uncles' criminal background, and the Enforcers wish to keep it that way so that the boys won't end up like them.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble:
** The Sanguine: Finn is the most outspoken and the most playful in his speech.
** The Choleric: Hak Foo is short-tempered and the most dynamic and goal-oriented, whatever the goals are his employers' or his own.
** The Melancholic: Chow seems to be the most neurotic of the Enforcers. After Hak Foo, he also appears to be the most focused on the team's duties.
** The Phlegmatic: Ratso is the most easy-going and the most awkward.
* {{Harmless Villain}}s: The Enforcers (especially Finn, Ratso, and Chow; and to a lesser extent, Hak Foo) are so incompetent that you may feel sorry for all their failures.
* HeelFaceTurn: Played with a few times, in two episodes late into the show, once in "The Good Guys" and again in "Dragon Scouts": Finn, Ratso, and Chow give tries at being good, but this is subverted when their greed proves too strong, and they soon revert back to their criminal ways.
** [[spoiler:However in the series finale "The Powers That Be (Part 2)", all four Enforcers (including Hak Foo this time) are implied to have finally abandoned their life of crime; Finn, Ratso, and Chow decide to help out by gathering ingredients for Uncle's spell to [[EnemyMine summon Shendu]]; while Hak Foo joins the {{final battle}} against Drago's minions.]]
* HeroWithAnFInGood: Their attempts to [[HeelFaceTurn reform]] fail because, as Finn puts it: "We're just not very good at being good guys."
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Finn, Ratso, and Chow are rarely seen apart from each other.
* JerksWithHeartsOfGold: The Enforcers may be criminals, although they have some decency at heart. [[spoiler:Read the other spoilers under HeelFaceTurn and ReformedButRejected.]]
* JokerImmunity: Even when the Enforcers are not Dark Chi Warriors and under the protection of ResurrectiveImmortality, they have endured several near-death experiences. In "Tale Of The Demon Tail", Chow and Ratso fall off a tower and ''narrowly'' avoid a lethal landing. Along with Finn in "The Good Guys", they fall ''twice'' from a cliff and survive.
* LaughablyEvil: In the category of {{comic relief}} villains, until Season 3 when they became empowered. But even then, they're still prone to comical bumbling.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Finn, Ratso, and Chow get two of these in "Tough Luck" and retain them for the remainder of the series. One is a rock guitar that plays usually when they appear. Another is a bass that plays in more calm situations.
* ManChild: The Enforcers tend to act rather immaturely. Particularly Ratso.
* MookCarryover: Every major villain has used them as henchmen.
* NeverMyFault: Finn, Ratso, and Chow tend to try and blame someone or something else for their failures when reporting to their {{Bad Boss}}es.
-->'''Finn''': Chan had a masked crimefighter with him, your Wongship!
-->'''Chow''': Eh-eh, the sun was in our eyes!
-->'''Ratso''': We need bigger weapons!
-->'''Daolon Wong''': [[LampshadeHanging Excuses, excuses]]!
* NotMeThisTime: Throughout "Dragon Scouts", Jackie suspects Finn, Ratso and Chow of being involved in robberies they've nothing to do with. Unfortunately for them, the real thief of the Golden Squid leaves the artifact to them while escaping, and they fight Jackie in order to keep it.
* NotSoDifferent: Finn, Ratso and Chow often resent that they're repeatedly force-conscripted as foot soldiers of the Dark Forces while Jackie laments that he's been dragged to the front lines in the battle against those Dark Forces. The Enforcers serve various {{Bad Boss}}es while Jackie is often yelled at and slapped by [[AbusiveParent Uncle]]. The Enforcers would like to quit this magic business so that they could go after what they really want: a big score. Jackie would love nothing more than get back his old non-magical life of archeology. Plus, all four are the biggest {{Butt Monkey}}s of the series with some ManChild traits.
* {{Not So Harmless Villain}}s: They may never succeed as bad guys, although they have still tried to kill the heroes in combat numerous times. Sometimes they're close to succeeding.
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: They have a habit of making these, even though it's usually their behinds that end up being kicked.
* {{Punch Clock Villain}}s: Crime seems to be the only lifestyle or occupation they know of, even though they aren't even good at it.
* ReformedButRejected: During both of their attempts to reform, Jackie is reluctant to believe them to be sincere. Ironically, when he starts believing them, they just need a chance for a big score to revert back to their old ways.
** [[spoiler:This is averted in the finale: after the Enforcers reform for real and aid in the final battle, Jackie places Jade in Hak Foo's arms for her safety.]]
* ReplacementMooks: The reason Daolon Wong enslaved them was because his Dark Chi Warriors were imprisoned by Uncle.
* SeenItAll: When Drago shows up to recruit the main trio and announces his identity, they don't look surprised at all.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: The main trio do this in the second season after the seven Demon Portals have been opened and Bai Tza intends to flood San Francisco.
* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: Jackie always beats Finn, Ratso, and Chow in the end, but the amount of trouble they can give him tends to vary.
* SuperpoweredMooks:
** All four as Dark Chi Warriors under Daolon Wong: they gained enhanced physical abilities and magical weapons.
** Also when they wore Oni Masks. Chow managed to lift Tohru with one hand and toss him aside easily.
** During their brief time serving Drago, the main trio gained Fire Demon powers.
* TerribleTrio: Finn, Ratso, and Chow. Hak Foo associates with the other three Enforcers less often, as he seems to prefer working by himself.
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: All four as Daolon Wong's Dark Chi Warriors. They POOF when "dying" and so can experience lethal wounds as comedy, every single episode.


-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AdamBaldwin

An Irish-American man wearing a disco suit, and the main trio's de facto leader. Before becoming a thug, he sang in disco bands and at weddings.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: In "[[SuperstitionEpisode Tough Luck]]", he doesn't believe in the curse that the [[BadLuckCharm Emerald of Killarney]] carries before he becomes its victim himself.
* CatchPhrase: "Scooore!"
* DeadpanSnarker: He often delivers snarky one-liners to allies and enemies.
* DiscoDan: Finn dresses like it's still the 1970s, presumably out of nostalgia.
** Also when he once time-traveled to 1976, he wanted to stay there. Ratso and Chow had to forcefully pull him through a time portal.
* EgocentricTeamNaming: In "Tough Luck", he quits the Dark Hand and attempts to form his own gang. Chow and Ratso soon join him. During the rest of the episode, Finn plays around with names for the gang. They all involve his name and some famous rock band.
* EvilRedhead: Due to being an Irish-American criminal.
* FightingIrish: It's a downplayed trope; Finn is Irish-American and does a lot of fighting through the series but he is not temperamental or particularly brave.
* FumaShuriken: As a Dark Chi Warrior, he was granted the weapon of Ren, his predecessor.
* JackOfAllStats: He seems to be the most mediocre fighter among the Enforcers, as he's not as strong as Ratso/Hak Foo or as adept at martial arts as Chow/Hak Foo.
* ManInWhite: Finn is always seen wearing a white suit, probably a nod to his love of disco music.
* TheNicknamer: One of his most defining traits. For example, he often calls Valmont "Big V" and Shendu "Shen-Dude".
* PaperThinDisguise: In "Queen Of The Shadowkhan", he disguises as an antique collector to distract the inhabitants of Uncle's Rare Finds from the theft of the Demon Archive. He even lampshades how his disguise fooled them.
* PungeonMaster: Finn is known to often make puns, though Ratso and Chow have their moments as well.
--> "You wanna see Lo Pei, you should check out my salary. Get it? Low-Pay?"
* TwoBeingsOneBody: In "The Demon Behind", the Rat Talisman-animated Ikazuki is stuck on his rear.


-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ClancyBrown

A green-skinned man wearing a formal suit. Before becoming a thug, he studied theoretical physics.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Ratso's skin and hair have a greenish tint.
* BaldOfEvil: While he was a Dark Chi Warrior, he lost his hair. This is presumably because he was a replacement to Chui, the bald Dark Chi Warrior.
* CatchPhrase: "Whoa."
* DropTheHammer: As a Dark Chi Warrior, he was granted the weapon of Chui, his predecessor.
* GeniusBruiser: Of a GeniusDitz variety: Ratso has a degree in theoretical physics, and he's sometimes surprisingly observant for a DumbMuscle guy.
* GeniusDitz: Despite his college education, he has only little common sense.
* GlassCannon: Ratso is strong (he once punched Jackie so hard in the face that he passed out), but his defense sucks.
* IMinoredInTropology: Who would have expected him to have studied theoretical physics?
* KindheartedSimpleton: Downplayed. Ratso seems to be the least malevolent of the Enforcers.
* ManChild: More so than the other Enforcers. He collects toy action figures and likes to play baseball. And in "The J-Team", he sleeps with a teddy bear.
* PointlessBandAid: Wears one on his nose. His reason for this is never stated. For some reason, he retained it after he was turned into a Dark Chi Warrior.
* RealMenWearPink: He's once shown to wear pink boxers.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Curiously, Ratso's irises are red. It's never discussed, and given Ratso's incompetence, this trope is subverted/averted.
* SharpDressedMan: Ratso is always seen wearing a suit.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: It's his comment about San Francisco's earthquakes that gives Bai Tza the idea to flood the city and make it her new underwater kingdom.


-->'''Voiced by:''' James Sie

A Chinese-American man who fancies sunglasses and a black jacket. Before becoming a thug, he was thrice the Employee of the Month at Sun-Shack store.
* CatchPhrase: "Sweet!"
* TheCoatsAreOff: When he wore one of the Oni Masks, he ripped off his coat before starting to beat Jackie's can.
* CoolShades: Chow is rarely seen without his sunglasses. He even managed to retain them after he was turned into a Dark Chi Warrior.
** In "The J-Team", Chow's sunglasses also act as his glasses because of his [[BlindWithoutEm nearsightedness]]. But the rest of the time he can see just fine without the shades, even lifting them to get a better look at something.
* FightingWithChucks: As a Dark Chi Warrior, he was granted the weapon of Gan, his predecessor. It's a three-sectional staff. He has also used a traditional nunchaku at least once.
* FlatCharacter: Chow has the least-discernable personality and fewest lines of the main three Enforcers. Most of what he says are generic lines that anybody in the group could speak just to move the plot along. Really, his only defining feature is his sunglasses.
* FragileSpeedster: Though nowhere close to matching Jackie or Hak Foo, Chow is a nimble fighter. He has sometimes managed to briefly match Jackie's moves, but he isn't very good at taking hits.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: He's twice shown wearing pink boxers with red hearts.
* LeanAndMean: He sometimes gives the impression of having a more violent streak than Finn or Ratso.
* TheQuietOne: He didn't have many lines until "The Jade Monkey".
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: He has made a high-pitched scream at least twice.
* SpikyHair: He has spiked hair, except during his time as a Dark Chi Warrior.

!!!Hak Foo
[[caption-width-right:320:This is his first outfit.]]

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JimCummings (Season 1) and Creator/JohnDiMaggio (Season 2 onward)

A Chinese martial artist who's constantly trying to prove his strength. He first appeared as a freelancer who was hired by Valmont in order to retrieve the Pig Talisman during the 1st season. After Tohru [[HeelFaceTurn leaves]] the Dark Hand, Hak Foo becomes his replacement. After the Demon Portal quest is over, Hak Foo goes on his own way again, but shows up occasionally.
* AgonyOfTheFeet: He has been known to scream "Crying puppy feet!" when he hurts his tootsies.
* AnimeHair: He has big pointy hair all over.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Hak Foo's first appearance was him reacting violently against Tohru because of an insult to his skills.
* {{Badass}}: He's the first enemy who has defeated Jackie in fair one-on-one combat. Overall, he's more competent than the other three Enforcers.
* BadassMustache: He sports a classical Fu Manchu mustache.
* BadassNormal: Hak Foo dismisses using the Talismans because he has all the power he needs in his mundane skills.
--> [[BadassBoast "Horse for healing? I am not easily injured. Rooster for levitation? I already fly. Dog for immortality? There is not a man alive who can vanquish me!"]]
* BareYourMidriff: In his first appearance, he wore a vest that exposed his muscular chest and abs. Also, during his time as a Dark Chi Warrior, his abs were exposed. He's also a rare male example of this trope.
* BareFistedMonk: He very rarely uses any weapons, unlike most of the cast.
* BearHug: [[spoiler:In the GrandFinale, his last announced move is a "Big Bear Hug" that he gives to his fellow Enforcers and Captain Black.]]
* BloodKnight: He rarely shies away from combat. On the contary, he always jumps into it.
* CallingYourAttacks: Parodied. Hak Foo frequently uses animal-based metaphors to refer to many of his attacks (and other actions he makes, or strange observations he sees).
** During his time as a Dark Chi Warrior, his metaphors involved forces of nature (like a meteor) and animals that appear only in mythology (like a phoenix).
* CatchPhrase:
** "[[CallingYourAttacks Angry crow takes flight!]]"
** "[[RunningGag I wanted that mask!]]" (Season 4)
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Hak Foo can perform amazing feats of martial arts because he worked at them.
* DartboardOfHate: Two episodes of the 4th season show him practising his moves on crude dummies of Jackie.
* DeadpanSnarker: He delivers acerb one-liners at times, both to allies and enemies.
* EliteMook: He's initially introduced as one - a henchman far more competent than the others who is more than a challenge to the heroes physically. However, after a few appearances he eventually becomes less and less competent - though he is still presented as more dangerous than the others.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Thrice. The first time was when he gained [[MultiarmedAndDangerous an extra pair of arms]] by using the Armbands of Shiva. The second time was when he became a Dark Chi Warrior. And the third time was when he wore one of the Oni Masks.
* EvilRedhead: He is ruthless and short-tempered, qualifying also as a FieryRedhead.
* EvilerThanThou: When he's hired to substitute Tohru, the more violent mercenary acts in a superior manner towards the sumo. This is dropped after Tohru [[HeelFaceTurn reforms]], making Hak Foo more of an EvilCounterpart.
* {{Foil}}: For Tohru. Hak Foo is fast, brash and clever, but not particularly intelligent and relies on martial arts while fighting. Tohru is slower, but more thoughtful, reserved and intelligent and relies on his strength and intuition in a fight.
* FreakyIsCool: Hak Foo loves power and he doesn't care what he looks like to get it.
* InASingleBound: He might be Jackie's superior in jumping ability.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's cocky and arrogant, and has few if any morals.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:But still though, after Hak Foo and the other Enforcers [[HeelFaceTurn finally turn good]], he announces his last move in the series: a "Big BearHug" with his fellow ex-henchmen.]]
* LargeHam: He's the biggest example in the series because of his ego, his presence, and his attack calling.
* LightningBruiser: He's strong enough to punch through a stone wall. He's on Jackie's level in agility and speed. It takes a lot of damage to take him down. However, he has an exploitable drawback in the form of his CallingYourAttacks habit: those who can catch what he's about to do from his loud exclamations can better defend themselves against him.
* MadeOfIron: He rarely seems to get any serious injuries from traumas that would render any human in a less ideal condition. For example, he once tried to open the indestructible Pan'Ku Box [[UseYourHead with his head]]. All the damage he managed to inflict on himself was a red mark on his forehead.
* MeteorMove: He does this as a Dark Chi Warrior. "Meteor brings mass extinction!"
* MyNameIsInigoMontoya: Upon his first confrontation with Jackie, he introduces himself this way.
--> "I am Hak Foo, the last human you will ever lay eyes upon."
* NotSoAboveItAll: Normally he distances himself from the other Enforcers' banter and attempts to excuse themselves to one of their {{Bad Boss}}es. But when they try to prevent themselves from entering a space shuttle by voting in "Shanghai Moon", Hak Foo joins in.
* PerpetualFrowner: His poker face is a scowl. Any smiles he makes are sinister, [[spoiler:except in the finale.]]
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: In Season 2, Hak Foo replaces Tohru as the character who gets punched by Jackie in the opening credits. In Season 3, he's absent from the opening again. He's seen with the Enforcers at Season 4's opening.
* RapidFireFisticuffs: "MANTIS BOXING STYLE!"
* RedBaron: His name means "Black Tiger" [[BilingualBonus in Chinese]].
* ReplacementMooks: For Tohru. Valmont brought Hak Foo in because of Tohru's stream of failures and truly replaced him after Tohru's HeelFaceTurn.
* TheRival: Can be one at times for Jackie, when martial arts are concerned; and for Tohru, when physical strength is concerned.
* SleevesAreForWimps: He has never worn anything with sleeves.
* TestosteronePoisoning: He's big, muscular, hammy and calls out every attack or motion.

[[folder:The Demon Sorcerers]]
An ancient family of demonic wizards and witches. In ancient times, 8 demon siblings ruled over Earth, until their human slaves (led by [[Myth/ChineseMythology China's Eight Immortals]]) overthrew them, and had them banished to another dimension called the Netherworld. One demon named Shendu somehow escaped and reconquered his domain, until he was transformed into a stone statue by the wizard Lo Pei. And then there's Shendu's young son Drago, though it's unknown how he fits into the timeline.
* AristocratsAreEvil: When they ruled the Earth as Demon Emperors.
* BadassFamily: All of them are forces to be reckoned with, even if they hate each other's guts (see below).
* BigScrewedUpFamily: Among the 8 siblings, Shendu is despised the most for his failure to rescue the other 7 from the Demon Netherworld. Drago is also bitter about never receiving approval from his father. Although as they are [[AlwaysChaoticEvil demons]] after all, it's hard to expect a healthy family dynamic from them.
* BodyHorror: In Season 5, the {{MacGuffin}}s are the chi energies of the Demon Sorcerers. Several mortals accidentally or intentionally absorb the chi, which turn them into demons until the chi is removed.
* DemonLordsAndArchDevils: They fit the description of higher-ranking demons serving directly the cause of the Devil, even though they're not known to serve anyone.
* {{Elemental Embodiment}}s: The 8 demon siblings represent elements from UsefulNotes/BaGua: Sky, Lake, Fire, Thunder, Wind, Water, Mountain and Earth. [[ShownTheirWork Except that Water is changed into Moon and Lake is changed into Water]].
* EvilSoundsDeep: The demons tend to have deep and powerful voices. Humans who absorb demon chi may also get their voices changed.
* EvilSoundsRaspy: Any demon who is not deep voiced will have this one like the snake-ish demon Bai Tza.
* FourFingeredHand: Each of the demons except for Po Kong have these.
* FourIsDeath: In addition to the trope above, four demons (Shendu, Bai Tza, Tso Lan, and Dai Gui) together act as the FinalBoss of the demon portal arc.
* GeniusBruiser: All of them, given that they are demon ''sorcerers'' after all, though some are much more cerebral than others.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: They bear little or no resemblance to each other - most of them are also reminiscent of and inspired by other mythological creatures that aren't otherwise connected to demons (Shendu and dragons being the most obvious).
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The 8 siblings all have glowing red eyes. But with Drago, only his irises are red, until he [[spoiler:gets all 8 Demon Chis]], then his eyes also glow.
* RedSkyTakeWarning: Any world they rule over has this. Both the "Demon World" duology and the final episode "The Powers That Be (Part 2)" have the sky turned red when the demons [[spoiler:and then Drago]] attain power.
* SealedEvilInACan: The sorcerers have repeatedly been banished to another dimension, while Shendu has repeatedly been turned to stone. [[spoiler:In the end all 9 of them, including Shendu and Drago, are stuck in the Netherworld.]]
* SorcerousOverlord: The siblings once ruled over Earth and enslaved mankind. Their goal is to reclaim that lost glory once again.
* TakeOverTheWorld: They did this in the past, with each of the 8 siblings ruling over their own domain. During the "[[VillainWorld Demon World]]" duology, they are returned to their former positions temporarily.
* TimeAbyss: It's not stated how old they are, but the 8 siblings are shown to have lived for thousands of years. Drago's case is unknown.

[[caption-width-right:320:A [[SealedEvilInACan magnificent wall ornament]], isn't he?]]

-->''I am the keeper of the talismans. I am the apocalypse of which legend speaks. And I am, for once and for all, your '''executioner'''.''

-->'''Voiced by:''' James Sie

The Demon Dragon of Fire, and the main villain of Seasons 1 and 2, though he pops up sporadically throughout the show. Pre-series, he was defeated by the leader of the Eight Immortals, Lu Dongbin. Later, he was turned into a stone statue, and his magic powers were transferred into 12 Talismans that were scattered around the world. Finding them is the focus of Seasons 1 and 3.
* AbusiveParent: Implied to be one, with his son Drago's arguments during their battle.
* AndIMustScream: Being trapped as a sentient statue for 900 years can take its toll.
* AllYourPowersCombined: The combined powers of the Talismans were really his powers separated from his body.
* ArchEnemy: He's probably the one opponent that gives the Chan Clan most trouble.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: When he appears [[spoiler:in the finale]], he's much bigger than his early appearances.
* BackForTheFinale: [[spoiler:[[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since the BigBad of the final series was his own son even if said son had an entirely separate agenda by that point.]]
* BackFromTheDead: At the end of the third season, [[spoiler:courtesy of Daolon Wong]].
* {{Badass}}: In his true form, he's gotten the better of Jackie more than once, and [[spoiler:in the GrandFinale fought Drago to a standstill when he had all the demon chis.]]
* BadassBoast: Those three [[IAmTheNoun I AM]] statements in the section quote.
-->''I am the keeper of the talismans. I am the apocalypse of which legend speaks. And I am, for once and for all, your '''executioner'''.''
* BadassLongRobe: After he possesses Valmont, he forces the crime lord to wear a sorcerer's robe. Valmont thinks it looks too much like a dress.
* BadBoss: The Dark Hand's constant failures frustrate Shendu. He once breathed fire at Tohru, who was covered in oil at the time (luckily he dodged out of the way). During the "Demon World" duology, he kept the Dark Hand as his jesters, continuing to abuse them for his amusement.
* BigBad: He is the one behind Valmont and the Dark Hand, despite not being the one driving the plot. Finding his talismans are also the focus of the plot. Furthermore, he is the only villain who is not an ArcVillain. He's present and causing trouble all the way to the GrandFinale.
* BigNo: He yells this after ending up possessing Valmont and whenever he gets [[TakenForGranite turned back into a statue]].
* BreathWeapon: Even when locked away in statue form or possessing Valmont, Shendu was capable of breathing a torrent of flames.
* BroughtDownToBadass: When possessing Valmont, he is no longer a two story monster, but he's still dangerous.
* ButtMonkey: Shendu has been banished to another dimension or turned into a statue multiple times, was once killed by a little girl, is abused by his siblings for failing to rescue them, and his possession of Valmont was an experience that both of them found to be awkward and embarrassing.
* CatchPhrase: "[[BigNo NOOOOO!]] [[OhNoNotAgain Not again!]]"
* CardCarryingVillain: Has acknowledged himself as evil.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Valmont, [[spoiler:Daolon]], etc. Anyone he works with he eventually betrays. The sole exception was his efforts to free his demon brethren, and that's largely because he was too terrified of them after the ''last'' time he betrayed them.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** In the first season, he refuses to reveal his identity to the heroes. If it had not been for Tohru's HeelFaceTurn, they wouldn't have found a way to stop him in time.
** When reduced to a spirit and hit with a spell by the rest of the Demon Sorcerers to keep him bound in the first host he chooses, he immediately goes after Jackie to remove him as a threat. He's only stopped by Valmont kicking Jackie off a cliff, causing him to miss and hit him instead.
** During the "Demon World" duology, Jade notes that Shendu seems to have arranged the timeline changes so that the members of the J-Team or the Dark Hand or his other enemies are under his or his siblings' watch.
* DeadpanSnarker: Towards the Dark Hand. A couple of examples:
--> '''Ratso''': Whoa! He [Tso Lan] wants to kabosh the planet?
--> '''Finn''': And you made us let him out?!
--> '''Shendu''': Just be glad you are up here.

--> ''Shendu allows the Enforcers to leave his service after all the Demon Portals have been opened while saying:''
--> "Never seeing any of you ever again would make me a very happy dragon."
* DemonicPossession: One of his more used powers when he doesn't have his body. Shendu has taken over Jade (briefly), Valmont (accidentally), and eventually [[spoiler:Jackie]] (his intended goal).
* DimensionalTraveler: As a spirit, he is capable of traveling between Earth and the Netherworld without the use of a portal.
* DraconicHumanoid: Shendu has two arms and two legs like a human, but otherwise he still looks like a reptilian monster.
* TheDragon: Figuratively and literally to his siblings [[DemotedToDragon in Season 2]]; he works to free them from their prison realm, and they are quick to point out that he is ''no longer'' their equal.
* DragonRider: In the "Demon World" duology, he rides on the backs of [[FurryConfusion non-anthropomorphic dragons]].
* TheDogBitesBack: Valmont and [[spoiler:Daolon Wong]] both retaliate against him for his betrayal.
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:He agrees to join the final battle against Drago for personal reasons.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: [[spoiler:During the finale, Drago ends up holding for his dear life, as the portal to the Netherworld is sucking everything in. He begs for his father's help. [[OutOfCharacterMoment After a moment of pondering, Shendu decides to help his son]]. Too bad Drago had to play possum.]]
* EvilSoundsDeep: His voice is notably deeper and smoother whenever he has his physical body, except in the last two seasons. [[EvilSoundsRaspy In most other appearances, he has a raspy voice.]]
%%* EvilerThanThou: He quickly proves this to [[spoiler:Daolon Wong]].
* FauxAffablyEvil: He speaks in a somewhat refined way, and can act in a charming way when he wants to, although he usually prefers a more direct approach. He turns into charming mode when dealing with those who have the upper hand, such as his siblings or the corrupted Jade.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: After he's restored to his real form during the 1st season, he does this to Tohru, sending him flying out of the penthouse.
* GreaterScopeVillain:
** Of a Season 4 episode and the entire series, since his Talismans are frequently used by the heroes and he ends up [[SealedEvilInACan a prisoner in the Vault of Section 13]].
** The Shadowkhan he used as minions have an expanded role in the 4th season.
** Of Season 5, where the villain is his BastardBastard son Drago, [[spoiler:which ultimately leads to Shendu being brought BackForTheFinale]].
* TheHeavy: Serves as this to the BigBadDuumvirate of his demon siblings in Season 2.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Until the finale of season 1, no one knew what he wanted beyond freedom.
* HijackedByGanon: [[spoiler:Daolon Wong resurrected Shendu in Season 3 so he could get the Dragon Talisman's power. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard This did not work out well for Wong]].]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Any time the talismans are used against him, as they were originally his powers to begin with.
* InASingleBound: He could do this while possessing Valmont.
* KillerRabbit: Quite literally when Jackie used the Monkey Talisman to turn Shendu into a rabbit. He still had some of his Talismans which made him far from harmless.
* KnightOfCerebus: Anytime he regains his true form is a cause for alarm, even when he became more comedic for most of the 2nd season. Even the BackForTheFinale was the result of the GodzillaThreshold.
* KungFuWizard: When he possesses Valmont, when he actually has to take on Chan when he's grown to his size, and when fighting [[spoiler:Drago]], he shows signs of this trope.
* KryptoniteFactor: Objects forged out of good magic like the Pan'ku Box are anathema to him. Even as a spirit touching it [[GoodHurtsEvil hurts him]], and doing so for prolonged periods of time can knock him out.
* MightyRoar: As a demonic dragon, Shendu can yell out an impressive roar.
* MonsterModesty: Whenever Shendu is restored to his organic body, he wears nothing except for a pair of shorts (gray in the first season and the second episode of the Demon Portal Arc per flashback, [[PurpleIsTheNewBlack purple and]] [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver orangey-red]] afterwards.)
* MundaneSolution:
** One time he tries to kill Uncle and Section 13 to interrupt their incantation. It doesn't work.
** One time he and the remaining Demon Sorcerers destroyed the components for the chi spells used to seal them.
* NearVillainVictory: At the end of the first three seasons.
** In the first season's finale, he nearly succeeds in releasing his army of dragons. He defeats Jackie and almost feeds him to the dragons. He's only stopped by Jade intervening.
** In the second season, he uses [[RewritingReality the Book of Ages]] to rewrite history to erase the Demon Sorcerers' original defeat. The only reason he lost was because Jade tore out a piece of the book that happened to have a part of her life on it, allowing her to [[RippleProofMemory retain her memories]] in the re-written history.
** At the end of the third season, he has successfully reclaimed the talisman powers from all of the noble animals, cornered Jackie and Jade, and is just about to kill them, when Uncle and Section 13 intervene, performing the spell that seals him back into a statue.
* NighInvulnerable: Even without the Dog Talisman to give him {{complete immortality}}, Shendu is still fairly resilient, and it seems that only magical weaponry can harm him; as Section 13 agents fired a rocket launcher and high-powered laser, which failed to injure him.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Shendu is self-described as both a [[NobleDemon noble]] [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon]] and a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demon]] [[EvilSorcerer sorcerer]]. And during most of Seasons 2 and 3, he was also an [[NonhumanUndead undead]] [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost]].
* NobleDemon: More like an [[AristocratsAreEvil evil aristocrat]]. He's technically considered a "noble dragon", which is why [[spoiler:the power of combustion came back to him upon his revival. The only reason for this was because he was the ''only'' living dragon on Earth.]]
* NonActionBigBad: In most of the first season because he was a statue.
* NonhumanUndead: After his death in the Season 1 finale, Shendu became a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot ghostly dragon demon sorcerer]].
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:He's killed by Jade in the first season finale]], but he returns as a spirit in the second season and accidentally possesses Valmont. He's revived in [[spoiler:season 3]], but then turned into a statue again.
* NoodleIncident: While not outright stated, it's indicated that he somehow managed to escape the Netherworld and leave the rest of his siblings behind. It's never explained how he did that, but it's implied they helped him do so and he was supposed to free them, but he obviously ditched them [[ICanRuleAlone in favor of ruling his old empire himself]].
* OhNoNotAgain: He utters this at the end of Season 3 when Uncle and Section 13 arrive to cast the spell to seal him into a statue, whilst having a {{Flashback}} to Lo Pei doing the same thing to him 900 years ago.
* OmnicidalManiac: His plan at the end of Season 1: release an army of dragons to destroy all of Asia as [[SinsOfOurFathers revenge]] for his stone imprisonment.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: He's a semi-humanoid dragon with traits of both Asian and European dragons. And he's also a ''demon''.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: After his death, Shendu wanders around as a spirit. [[spoiler:He gets better after Daolon Wong resurrects him.]]
* OverarchingVillain: He is the most recurring villain throughout the series, despite most of his appearances being in Seasons 1 and 2.
* PlayingWithFire: His specialty, seeing as he is both a dragon and a fire demon. Whether in his true form, as a statue, or while possessing a human body, being able to breathe fire is one of the few powers he retains, even while deprived of all his talismans.
* PreMortemOneLiner: He gives a cool line as he's about to feed Jackie to his dragon minions (even though Jade prevents him):
--> "Pity you will not live to witness my reign over ''your'' world, but you shall be the first to visit ''theirs''."
* PowerEchoes: His voice reverberates when he's in statue form or possessing someone.
* ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated: He says this verbatim in the end of "The Stronger Evil".
--> "Reports of my [[DeadlyEuphemism demise]] have been ''greatly'' exaggerated Chan."
* RequiredSecondaryPowers:
** He requires the Rat Talisman to maintain his demon form, otherwise he's a statue. However doing so means he can only use the Rat Talisman and nothing else. Thus the Tiger Talisman is needed to access the rest of his powers. While removing his other talismans deprive him of power, it's only a minor inconvenience. Removing the Rat however instantly turns him back into a statue.
** While he was possessing Valmont he has immunity to his own firebreath while he's in control, but Valmont ''doesn't''. Once when Valmont regained control immediately after a firebreath, he ended up literally choking on his own breath until given a glass of water.
* SealedArmyInACan: Trapped in another dimension, his dragon minions certainly count as this. Freeing them is his objective in the first season.
* SealedEvilInACan: Spends much of his time either trapped in the Netherworld or [[TakenForGranite turned into a statue]]. Occasionally freed and turned back into his normal self, intermittently throughout the series.
** [[SealedEvilInASixPack Sealed Evil in a Twelve Pack]]: He ''technically'' qualifies as this, since his scattered talismans, as aspects of his power, are all parts of his being, and are all required to release him.
** SealedEvilInADuel: [[spoiler:His fate in the finale; it ends with him and Drago both trapped in the Demon Netherworld while still fighting.]]
* SkywardScream: Every time he is defeated. Eventually Jade mouths along.
* SmugSnake: In Season 2, nothing goes the way he wants it to. He is constantly harassed by his terrifying siblings, and is constantly arguing with Valmont whose body he has to share (Valmont manages to knock him out - he was actually trying to ''kill'' him and risked his life to do it, just because he was sick of him). In Season 3, he gets his Talisman powers back only to be immediately resealed, and after that is stuck as a prisoner of Section 13 [[spoiler:until the finale]].
* SummonBiggerFish: [[spoiler:After Drago is empowered by all the Demon Chis, Uncle and Tohru free Shendu from his statue form [[EnemyMine to fight him]].]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Tohru:''' [[TakesOneToKillOne Demon must defeat demon]].]]
* SummonMagic: Due to his ownership of an Oni Mask, the Ninja Shadowkhan appear from the shadows on his command. More pertinently, however, he can summon and control hordes of dragons.
* SuperpowerLottery: He has about a dozen powers split among the twelve talismans:
** AnimateInanimateObject: The Rat Talisman can bring inanimate objects to life, until the Talisman is deactivated.
** {{Animorphism}}: The Monkey Talisman allows the user to turn oneself or others into any animal and back.
** AstralProjection: The Sheep Talisman allows one to eject their soul out of their body, and enter the {{spirit world}}.
** EyeBeams[=/=]SeeTheInvisible: The Pig Talisman allows the user to shoot heat rays from their eyes. A lesser power is the ability to see and detect invisible people through their heat signatures.
** HealingFactor: The Horse Talisman can heal injuries, cure illnesses, and even reverse some transformations (such as turning into stone). Apparently it can also rebuild non-living objects.
** ImmortalityInducer: The Dog Talisman [[TheAgeless stops aging]] and [[NighInvulnerable grants invulnerability]], but without the Horse Talisman, you can still feel the pain from injuries.
** {{Invisibility}}: The Snake Talisman gives you full invisibility, but only works on characters, and even then they can be [[SeeTheInvisible seen]] by someone wielding the Pig Talisman. When applied to non-living objects, only said object becomes invisible and not what's inside.
** LiteralSplitPersonality: The Tiger Talisman can split people into two halves, yin (light) and yang (dark).
** MindOverMatter: The Rooster Talisman grants levitation and telekinesis, allowing the user to make oneself or others float in the air. Can be combined with the Rabbit Talisman for super-fast flight.
** PlayingWithFire[=/=]StuffBlowingUp: The Dragon Talisman allows the user to shoot blasts of fire from their hands, which have an explosive and concussive effect when they strike a target.
** SuperSpeed: The Rabbit Talisman grants super-speed, obviously.
** SuperStrength: The Ox Talisman grants super-strength, obviously.
* SuperStrength: Even without the Ox Talisman, Shendu is absurdly strong, being able to overpower an Ox Talisman-powered Jackie Chan.
* TakenForGranite: He has been turned into a stone statue a few times.
* TakeOverTheWorld: He did so in the past, at least China.
* TakingYouWithMe: A non-lethal example, but Shendu [[spoiler:pulls Drago into the Netherworld with him, when the latter yanks the former into the portal, after pretending to be in distress]].
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Valmont in Season 2 since he is stuck in the man's body. Neither of them like it but the only way out is to help each other.
* NamesToRunAwayFrom/TheAdjectiveOne: He's referred to by the sacred warrior Lo Pei as "the Ultimate Evil".
%%* ThreePointLanding: He does this with Valmont's body in "Jade Times Jade".
* ToServeMan: Shendu has attempted to EAT Jackie at least twice, even referring to his unconscious body as "fresh meat".
* TrueFinalBoss: Of season 3 after [[HijackedByGanon double-crossing Daolon Wong]].
* VillainousRescue: [[spoiler:This is exploited in "The Powers That Be (Part 2)", when Uncle releases him to battle his son Drago, [[GodzillaThreshold after they had exhausted all of their other options]].]]
* WhyWontYouDie: When Jackie shows up in Shendu's castle to battle him in the 1st season's finale, Shendu asks Jackie how many lives he possesses.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Shendu had promised the Dark Hand the lost treasure of [[UsefulNotes/QinShihuangdi Ching Xi Hung]] in exchange for resurrecting him. But after he's resurrected, he takes back his word. He reasons that [[JekyllAndHyde Yang Jackie]] was the one who brought the Talismans to him, ''not'' the Dark Hand (though he had been losing patience with them throughout the season for their repeated failures).
** In season 2, after all the seven portals have been opened, he sends Finn, Ratso, and Chow away since they were no longer needed to carry the Pan'Ku Box. Later, he tries to do this to Hak Foo, but Valmont doesn't want to be alone with him. Then Shendu realizes that he had invoked the trope too soon, as he still needed the box, even if just to delay his sibling's wrath.
** He even lampshades it with [[spoiler:Daolon Wong]] after backstabbing him.

!!Shendu's siblings
[[caption-width-right:300:[[SarcasmMode One big happy family]]. From the top-left corner going clockwise: Dai Gui, Tchang Zu, Xiao Fung, Bai Tza, Tso Lan. In the center Po Kong (left) and Hsi Wu (right).]]
Shendu's brothers and sisters. They hate Shendu's guts because he didn't try to free them. They're the main villains of Season 2, giving a ghostly Shendu the task of liberating them from [[PrisonDimension the Demon Netherworld]] by opening their portals.
* {{Arc Villain}}s: In Season 2, all of them are collectively the main antagonists. They are not heard from after the "Demon World" duology.
* BadBoss: They both berate and ZAP Shendu. It's hard to feel sympathy for the guy considering he left them to rot.
* BigBadDuumvirate: In the second season, all of them have the same goal: freedom.
* CompleteImmortality: Hence why they're sealed. They can't die, and unlike Shendu, there's no known way of removing it.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In order to make sure that Shendu will free them instead of going on his own way again, they place on him a spell that will bind him to the first human body he possesses. Unless he works to free them, he's faced with the option of wandering as a spirit forever or remaining in the first human body he dares to possess.
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: Jade pulls a BatmanGambit on them, when she's trapped with them. She reveals them Shendu's lies: ''only'' one of them can enter through his portal. She ''knew'' [[NoHonorAmongThieves they would fight for their freedom]], allowing her to use the portal herself.
* DispenseWithThePleasantries: None of them care much for Shendu's attempts to kiss up to them. Tso Lan even says something along the lines of the trope name.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Played with. Shendu asks them to give him another chance by using the Book of Ages to escape from the Netherworld. They're initially against it, since even they fear the dangers of reality warping, but admitting their desperate situation, they concede.
* EvilerThanThou: All of them to Shendu - all of them, especially Bai Tza, regard him as a sniveling fool that only became as powerful as he was because rest of them weren't around. They push him around even more than they do each other, and Shendu - not in a position to retaliate - fears their wrath.
* EvilOldFolks: Tso Lan referred to himself as old, though all demons may count since they're thousands of years old.
* FourFingeredHand: All of them minus Po Kong, whose hands only have three fingers.
* LargeAndInCharge: All of them except Hsi Wu, who is still taller than most humans. The rest are about as big or bigger than Shendu, and all of them make it very, very clear that ''they'' are ''his'' bosses, since he lost any equality privileges when he left them to rot in their prison. This is inverted with Po Kong, ironically, who is so lazy she is the ''least'' bossy demon despite being the largest by far.
* NoHonorAmongThieves: When a chance for only one of them to escape arrives, they're quick to follow Hsi Wu's "every demon for himself" example.
* SealedEvilInACan: In another dimension, rather than as statues.

!!!Bai Tza
[[caption-width-right:320:[[{{Pun}} A fish out of water]].]]

The Water Demon. Pre-series, she was defeated and banished to the Netherworld by Iron-Crutch Li Tieguai.
* AlienHair: She has head tentacles.
* {{Atlantis}}: She once ruled it. It's now in ruins, so she sets out to create a new underwater city.
* {{Cthulhumanoid}}: Her face looks kind of squid-like.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: She realizes that it's better to run away than stay and fight the Chans.
* DesignatedGirlFight: In "Demon World (Part 2)", she ends up facing Viper, the only adult female of the J-Team during the fight over the Book of the Ages.
* EvilSoundsRaspy: Like Shendu, she speaks with a rasp in her voice.
* GlassCannon: Unlike her siblings, a solid enough hit will scatter Bai Tza into a puddle of water - which takes her some time to recover from.
* KnightOfCerebus: She tries to flood a city to create a new underwater kingdom. Twice.
* MakingASplash: Obviously, she can manipulate water.
* NonhumansLackAttributes: She seems to wear nothing, as there seems to be nothing intimate to expose.
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Bai Tza could be called a demonic mermaid.
* PrehensileHair: Her head tentacles.
* YouHaveFailedMe: She reacted this way to Shendu after he freed her. Since their siblings didn't remain free, Shendu will not be released from Valmont's body.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/FrankWelker [[note]]Though Welker is not credited in any of the episodes where Dai Gui speaks; his voice sounds like Clancy Brown, who is already part of the main cast.[[/note]]

The Earth Demon. Pre-series, he was defeated and banished to the Netherworld by Lan Caihe.
* DigAttack: While he usually fights head on, he can cause serious trouble to his opponents when he's underground.
* DishingOutDirt: Obviously, Dai Gui can manipulate the earth around him.
* DumbMuscle: He comes off as the least intelligent of the Demon Sorcerers.
* EvilSoundsDeep [[EvilSoundsRaspy and Raspy]]: His voice is both deep and raspy, though not as raspy as Tchang Zu's.
* HornedHumanoid: His body is human-like in that he has four limbs, a torso, and a head but he's also huge and has horns.
* ALoadOfBull: He resembles a Minotaur.
* MonsterModesty: He wears a loincloth.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Read his quote above.
* TunnelKing: He travels by tunneling underground, with his horns sticking out of the ground.
* UndergroundCity: Upon his release, he intends to dig his kingdom into the depths of the Earth. It can be assumed that he rules over such a place during the Demon World duology.

!!!Hsi Wu

-->'''Voiced by:''' André Sogliuzzo

The Sky Demon. Pre-series, he was defeated and banished to the Netherworld by Philosopher Han Xiangzi.
* AnArmAndALeg: His tail is cut off. It's still moving, wanting to return to its owner. Uncle puts a spell on it: when Hsi Wu regains his tail, he can be sent back to the Netherworld.
* BatOutOfHell: He looks like a humanoid demon with bat-like wings.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In "Demon World (Part 2)", he demands Viper, his caged prisoner, to sing for him. He then starts hearing the sound of a flute, the artifact intended to seal him.
* ButtMonkey: He seems to be the physically weakest of all the Demon Sorcerers, and tends to end up in painful situations more than his siblings.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Being threatened by Hsi Wu - on top of a high tower no less - doesn't discourage Uncle from smacking him.
* EvilSoundsRaspy: Hsi Wu has the lightest voice, but no less raspier than some of his siblings.
* EvilTowerOfOminousness: The Demon World duology shows him living in tower suitable as the palace for a demon overlord.
* FauxAffablyEvil: In his "Seymour" identity, he is a bit too polite to Jade and her family, although Uncle sees right through him.
* FragileSpeedster: Hsi Wu is noticeably frail - at least in comparison to his siblings - but he is a fast flyer.
%%* LeanAndMean
* MonsterModesty: He wears a loincloth.
* PortalSlam: He ends up slamming into a floating rock that happened to be behind Shendu's portal.
* VillainousCrush: Inverted. Jade [[AllLoveIsUnrequited develops a childish crush on his human identity]], and is [[WomanScorned genuinely hurt]] when his identity is revealed.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: He disguises himself as a human boy named "Seymour" so he can trick Jade into [[MustBeInvited inviting him]] into Uncle's shop, so he could retrieve his missing tail.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: He has the power to fly. The other demons can do that and other things.
* WingedHumanoid: He flies with bat-like wings.

!!!Po Kong

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MonaMarshall

The Mountain Demon. Pre-series, she was defeated and banished to the Netherworld by Elder Zhang Guolao.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: She lives up to her title by being mountain-sized.
* BigEater: Obviously, see the tropes below. Also when Tohru absorbed her demon chi, he [[ExtremeOmnivore devoured every object in sight]].
%%* ContraltoOfDanger
* FatBastard: Po Kong is the largest demon because she is the fattest, but ironically due to her laziness, she's perhaps the least bossy.
* FatIdiot: Doesn't come off as being very bright. But this is probably more due to laziness than a mental handicap. She managed to get Jackie out of a well by blowing to another well, causing the water in Jackie's well to carry him out of it.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: She once does this to Hsi Wu out of spite.
%%* GreenAndMean
* MightyGlacier: Due to her massive size she is slow.
* NonhumansLackAttributes: She wears nothing, as there seems to be nothing intimate to expose.
* ToServeMan: She has a taste for humans.
* VillainousGlutton: Her only care or concern is food.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: She has no special abilities beyond being very big, and she serves as a StarterVillain of sorts as a result.

!!!Tchang Zu

The Thunder Demon. Pre-series, he was defeated and banished to the Netherworld by actor Cao Guojiu, a fact Uncle states in the episode where he is released.
* BareYourMidriff: A rare male example. Tchang Zu's armor has a gap between the main chestplate and his loin guard that exposes his torso.
* BlingOfWar: Downplayed. His armor looks cool, but it's not overly decorated.
* ElectricTorture: He inflicts this on Shendu's spirit. Twice on-screen.
* EvilSoundsDeep [[EvilSoundsRaspy and Raspy]]: His voice is both deep and raspy.
* PsychoElectro: He's quite aggressive.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: He has sort of a reptilian appearance in his demonic biology.
* ShockAndAwe: He throws around lightning bolts.
* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: He insists that Shendu call him "master" rather than "brother".
* TheVoiceless: After "And He Does His Own Stunts", he stops speaking entirely.
* WaxingLyrical: When he arrives with the Dark Hand to the spot where his palace used to be, we get this exchange:
--> '''Tchang Zu''': My palace! These humans have paved my paradise and constructed a...
--> '''Ratso''': Uh, [[Music/JoniMitchell parking lot]]?

The Moon Demon. Pre-series, he was defeated and banished to the Netherworld by Immortal Woman He Xiangu.
* AristocratsAreEvil: He dresses like an East Asian nobleman and he has the classy sophistication to match.
* CreepyMonotone: He rarely changes his sinister tone.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Though his voice isn't as deep as Dai Gui's or Tchang Zu's, he sounds more smooth and sophisticated.
* GravityMaster: He can manipulate gravity and levitate objects, or disrupt the Moon's orbit around Earth.
* KnightOfCerebus: He is ''very'' rarely a source of any humor, and in all other situations is treated extremely seriously with his [[GravityMaster gravity magic]] and his plan to [[HostileTerraforming use the Moon to alter the Earth's landscape]] in the episode where he takes center stage.
* KungFuWizard: He attempts to kick Jackie when the latter's grown 20 feet tall and attempting to wrestle Shendu.
* MindOverMatter: As part of his gravity powers.
* MonstrousHumanoid: Freakish mouth, four arms, long robe, pale blue skin, a textbook example.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: He has four arms. While struggling with El Toro, he uses his extra arms to steal the Talismans from the luchador.
* OmnicidalManiac: His plan is to remove the Moon from Earth's orbit. He knows the sort of damage it would do to the Earth, and states only after it he'd find the planet to his liking.
* OverlyLongTongue: It's always hanging out of what passes for his mouth. And it moves when he speaks instead of his mouth. Those empowered by his demon chi get this trait as well.
* PowerFloats: He usually levitates.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: His robes, which mix with PurpleIsTheNewBlack.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
--> '''Xiao Fung''': Surely there must be a civil way to resolve this.
--> '''Tso Lan''': Like what? Alphabetical order?
* TheStoic: He seems more calm and reserved when compared to the other demons.

The Wind Demon. Pre-series, he was defeated and banished to the Netherworld by Zhongli Quan.
* AffablyEvil: He's more well-spoken, relaxed and reasonable than his siblings.
* BlowYouAway: He can blow hurricane-level winds from his mouth.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Seeing a pattern?
%%* GladiatorGames: He seems to like these, as shown in "Demon World (Part 2)".
* MonsterModesty: He wears a loincloth.
* PragmaticVillainy: He decides to free Shendu-possessed Valmont from solitary confinement because he doesn't want to be stuck with the duty of freeing their remaining siblings.
* StoneWall: When he's blowing at full steam, it's nigh impossible to get near him, even with the Rabbit Talisman.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: He disguises himself as a human prisoner so he could locate the Shendu-possessed Valmont's jail cell.

The main villain of Season 5. He is Shendu's son, who comes [[KidFromTheFuture from the future]], where Jade has become the head of Section 13. After a fight over the preservation of the timeline, Drago is [[TrappedInThePast left to the present]]. He eventually decides that he's better off making a name for himself, rather than be just a supporting player to his father.
* AllYourPowersCombined: [[spoiler:Getting all the demon chis grant him the powers of eight demons (including himself, along with his uncles and aunts).]]
* ArcVillain: Of Season 5. There are more powerful and longer lasting villains in his older relatives.
* ArchEnemy: He's implied to be one to [[FutureBadass Jade's future self]], and he seems to address the present Jade more often than the other villains.
* AvengingTheVillain: In his debut episode he's helping in resurrecting his father in the future, but he abandons his present father to get the Demon Chis of his aunts and uncles.
* {{Badass}}: Besides his demonic dragon powers, Drago also knows martial arts.
* BadassLongcoat: Throughout the 5th season, he wears a [[SleevesAreForWimps sleeveless]] black coat.
* BadBoss: He treats all his subordinates like crap, blaming them whenever something goes wrong (even if it's Drago's fault) but never showing any kind of praise when they do succeed at anything. However, he seems to be willing to share power with the Ice Gang as long as they don't step over their boundaries.
* BackstabBackfire: [[spoiler:After he begs for his father to save him from banishment, Shendu helps him up. But then Drago throws his father into the portal sucking everything into the Netherworld, only for Shendu to grab his tail [[TakingYouWithMe and pull them both down]].]]
* BroughtDownToBadass: After all the Demon Chis have been discovered, Drago loses his Fire Demon powers, but he still holds his own for a while when the Ice Gang decide to betray him. [[spoiler:Then he [[TookALevelInBadass regains ALL the Demon Chi]].]]
* DawnOfAnEra: In "The Powers That Be (Part 1)", he says to [[BadassInDistress the captured Jackie, Uncle, and Captain Black]] that he will [[VisionaryVillain end the status quo where the demons are beneath the Earth and humans walk on it freely, and lead on a new age of demons with the humans enslaved]].
--> '''Drago:''' Yep, pretty soon now it's goodbye humanity, hello Demonville! [[WellDoneSonGuy Daddy would be so proud]].
%%* DeadpanSnarker:
* DraconicHumanoid: He looks like a human with dragon scales, making him look a lot more anthropomorphic than his father.
* EvilCounterpart: Of all the villains the series shows, Drago has the most amount of similarities with Jade. They’re both the youngest members of their sides (the Demon Sorcerers and the Chan Clan) who are often underestimated by their elders. Due to their youth, they’re both reckless, cocky, rebellious and [[DeadpanSnarker sharp-tongued]], yet they’re also more flexible in their thinking when compared to their elders. They both have potential for many areas (like martial arts, magic and leadership) and despite their rebelliousness, they want their achievements to be acknowledged by their elders.
* FinalBoss: Drago is the final enemy that the heroes battle. [[spoiler:As Drago is empowered with all 8 Demon Chis, it takes Shendu with all 12 Talismans to defeat him.]]
* FreudianExcuse: Besides it [[AlwaysChaoticEvil being in his nature to do so]], he also wants to {{take over the world}} out of a desire to [[WellDoneSonGuy prove his worth to his dad]].
* GameChanger: He has used tactics against the Chans that previous villains haven't. For example, he's the first villain who has tried having different henchmen than the Enforcers, and in the second-to-last episode, instead of attacking Section 13 in order to try and reclaim the Demon Chis, he comes up with a HostageForMacGuffin situation.
%%* GreenAndMean
* HostageForMacGuffin: In the second-to-last episode of the series, Drago's henchmen kidnap Jackie, Uncle, and Captain Black. He demands Jade to hand over the Demon Chis stored in Section 13.
* HotBlooded: Due to his youth, he's even more fiery and short-tempered than his father.
%%* InASingleBound
* {{Jerkass}}: As stated by Jade, when the two negotiate the above mentioned HostageForMacGuffin:
--> '''Drago:''' Be there or...
--> '''Jade:''' ...be square?
--> '''Drago:''' No, be there or you'll be spending the rest of your wonder years being raised by that 500 pound sumo! ''(Hangs up the phone)''
--> '''Jade:''' Sheesh! [[LampshadeHanging Evil and a jerk]]!
* KidFromTheFuture: All we know about Drago is that he's a time-traveler from the near future. We know little else about his backstory.
* KungFuWizard: Very good at both magic and fighting with his fists.
* MissingMom: It's never discussed if Drago has ever had a mother.
* NeverMyFault: MC Cobra once suggested that ''maybe'' Drago was responsible for their many failures. Drago responded violently.
* NearVillainVictory: [[spoiler: He ultimately obtains all the Demon Chis and prepares to conquer the Earth. [[DarkestHour Even Section 13 and the J-Team can't do much against him, even with the Talismans]]. [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs Section 13 is destroyed]] and [[DisneyDeath Tohru apparently dies with it]]. But then Shendu is released to battle his son and things go downhill for Drago.]]
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: After getting all of the Demon Chis, he transforms into a greater and more monstrous form, with physical traits of all his uncles and aunts.]]
-->'''Strikemaster Ice:''' [[spoiler:''(while Drago is transforming)'']] Dude, that is nasty!
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Drago looks even more humanoid than his father. Or his uncles and aunts. It's never discussed, but [[WildMassGuessing he may not be]] [[HalfHumanHybrid a full-blooded demon]].
* OverlordJr: He's the Demon Sorcerer Shendu's son, though he wants to remove the "junior" part.
* ParentalAbandonment: Lots of daddy issues with this one.
* PlayingWithFire: Being the son of the Demon Sorcerer of Fire, it should be obvious.
* PrehensileTail: He has used his tail in fights.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears at Season 5's opening.
* PsychopathicManChild: Drago acts like a teenage {{delinquent}} (or may actually be one). Couple that with the fact that he's also an evil demon wizard who wants to {{take over the world}}.
* PungeonMaster: "Anyone up for some ''flame''-enco dancing?"
* RedSkyTakeWarning: [[spoiler:After Drago obtains all the Demon Chis, the sky turns blood red and remains so, until he's banished to the Netherworld.]]
* SealedEvilInADuel: [[spoiler:In the final scene of the whole series, he's imprisoned with his [[EvilVersusEvil also evil]] father Shendu, leaving both them to quarrel.]]
* SuperpowerLottery: [[spoiler:In the final episode, Drago absorbs all 8 Demon Chi powers: [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], [[ShockAndAwe Thunder]], [[MakingASplash Water]], [[DishingOutDirt Earth]], [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Mountain]], [[BlowYouAway Wind]], [[WingedHumanoid Sky]], and [[GravityMaster Moon]].]]
* SuperSpeed: He also gives this power to MC Cobra.
* SuperStrength: He also gives this power to DJ Fist.
* SuperToughness: As a demon, he is more durable than a human, though it's not clear if he's as invulnerable as the other Demon Sorcerers.
* SurroundedByIdiots: He's the only villain who fires Finn, Ratso, and Chow after they failed him the first time. Then it's taken UpToEleven when he's looking for new henchmen: before the Ice Gang show up, Drago finds the possible replacements to be ''EVEN WORSE'' than the Enforcers. While he still finds the Ice Gang to be less than satisfactory, he keeps them around anyway because he doesn't like the hassle of finding more minions.
* TerminatorTwosome: [[FutureBadass Future Jade]] time travels to the present to prevent the BadFuture from taking place. Drago follows to stop her.
* TotallyRadical: He picks up some slang from the Ice Gang.
* VagueAge: He almost looks like a teenager, but his actual age is never revealed. As far as we know though, he wasn't born yet (or at least not active on Earth) in the present day.
** Considering that present-day Shendu apparently knows who his son is, and Drago seems to have personal history with his dad as well, it is quite likely that Drago may be [[Really700YearsOld far older than he looks]].
* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: Averted. He's after the Demon Chis to become powerful enough to conquer the Earth all by himself.
* WellDoneSonGuy: He never gets his father's respect, but then again, his dad ''is'' an evil demon dragon.

[[folder:Dark Chi Forces]]
!!Daolon Wong
[[caption-width-right:320:[[EvilCounterPart Like Uncle, but evil]].]]
--> ''Ah, darkness shall begin its reign.''

-->'''Voiced by:''' James Hong

The main villain of Season 3. He is an ancient Chinese dark chi wizard who tries to find the animals with Talisman powers.
* ArchEnemy: To Uncle, as they are both chi wizards, Uncle is his GoodCounterpart, and Wong [[YouKilledMyFather "defeated" Uncle's teacher]].
* ArcVillain: He's the main enemy of Season 3 but only a minor recurring enemy otherwise.
* BadassGrandpa: He's at least as old and just as powerful as Uncle.
* BadBoss:
** All the [[BigBad Big Bads]] are this to varying degrees, but Daolon Wong might be the top contender. [[GotVolunteered He just appears and turns the Enforcers into his new minions without asking their opinion]]. He never congratulates them for anything, punishes them either verbally or inflicting them with painful dark magic, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking addresses them with the names of his old warriors]]. Ratso once says that Wong turned him into an ottoman for [[DisproportionateRetribution bringing him the wrong tea]].
** He values the more competent Hak Foo slightly more than the others initially, but as soon as Hak Foo's success rate comes to an end, Wong treats him just as badly as the others.
* TheBadGuyWins: The episode which introduced both Eggbert (the noble rooster) and Mordecai (the noble pig) ended with him getting away with ''both'' talisman powers!
* BigBad: Of Season 3. He's after the Noble Animals with the Talisman powers.
* BeardOfEvil: He has a white goatee.
* BlackMagic: You don't see Uncle enslaving people to be his Dark Chi Warriors.
* BlackSpeech: He mutters his spells in sinister sounding Chinese.
* ButtMonkey: Almost every episode he's in usually ends up with him getting injured and his final defeat is the most humiliating of any of the {{Big Bad}}s - [[spoiler:he's stripped of his powers in a CurbStompBattle and left to rot in prison]]. Likewise, most of his defeats are {{Humiliation Conga}}s, with the episode involving time travel even having him rapidly flash through each of his most painful defeats.
* CardCarryingVillain: The only goal that Wong's made clear is that he wants to spread evil.
* CatchPhrase:
** "Gan, Ren, Chui!"
** "Eh?"
* DarkIsEvil: He's proud to declare his membership to the Forces of Darkness.
* {{Depowered}}: [[spoiler: In the 3rd arc's end, Uncle takes away all of Wong's magical powers.]]
* EvilAlbino: No other human in the series is as pale as he is.
* EvilCounterpart: To Uncle. In fact, Jade often refers to him as "[[LampshadeHanging the anti-Uncle]]". In "The Good, the Bad, the Blind, the Deaf and the Mute", Wong himself lampshades this.
-->'''Daolon Wong''': *to Uncle* It would appear you are the appropriate yin to my yang, good wizard.
%%* EvilGloating:
* EvilIsNotAToy: For a devoted evildoer, he should have known better than to make a deal with [[spoiler:Shendu]].
* EvilIsOneBigHappyFamily: While he is a BadBoss ''par excellence'', he seems to have this opinion of serious evil doers, referring to Shendu as a "brother in darkness" [[spoiler: and is genuinely shocked when Shendu betrays him]], and he is working to further the cause of evil for its own sake- power is a means to that end for him, not an end in itself.
* EvilOldFolks: He's probably older than Uncle, given the fact that he faced off Uncle's teacher.
* EvilSorcerer: He's an ''evil'' WitchDoctor. His magic is basically the same type as the one Uncle uses, but utilised for a different purpose.
* EvilWearsBlack: He wears a black and blue robe.
* EvilerThanThou: He once ends up facing [[EvilVersusEvil the Monkey King]] and wins and he easily puts Valmont in his place when recruiting the Enforcers. But later he ends up on the "thou" end against [[spoiler:Shendu]].
* {{Expy}}: He has many similarities to [[Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina Lo Pan]], another evil and ancient Chinese wizard who has three mystical warriors as servants and who's voiced by James Hong.
* FacialMarkings: He has black tattoos on his face.
* FangsAreEvil: He can create in each of his palm a fanged mouth.
* GenreBlind: How did he NOT see [[spoiler:Shendu's betrayal]] coming? Everyone else did.
* GrumpyOldMan: Smugness aside, he's never genuinely happy.
* HeroKiller: You know he's bad news when he brags about "defeating" Chi Master Fung.
* HijackedByGanon: [[spoiler: To Shendu in season 3. As soon as the old dragon is resurrected, he becomes the main threat.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Most of his plans fail due to this trope. The biggest example would be [[spoiler:him trusting [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Shendu]]]].
* KiAttacks: Launches these with his magic wand.
* KickTheDog: Tries to "shoot the dog with a chi blast meant to vaporize it." [[spoiler:Good thing said dog was immortal.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Despite being a ButtMonkey, Daolon Wong brings more sinister tones to the story than the Dark Hand, for example. He is also one of the few human antagonists who are confirmed to have killed another character [[KilledOffForReal for real]].
* LaserGuidedKarma: In his last appearance, he's [[spoiler:dragged off to be interrogated by the past versions of the Enforcers, the same ones whose present versions he abuses during the 3rd season]].
%%* LeanAndMean:
* MagicWand: His wooden scepter. [[spoiler:It's eventually rendered powerless by Uncle.]]
* MismatchedEyes: Wong's left eye is gray, and his right eye is blue. Maybe it's due to magic?
* {{Necromancer}}: [[spoiler: He resurrects Shendu by magically creating for him a new physical body to replace the one Jade destroyed.]]
* OffscreenVillainy: When Uncle and Daolon Wong first meet, Wong reveals himself as the one who killed Uncle's Chi Master. This crime is never shown onscreen.
* OldMaster: Uncle often vouches for Wong's expertise and Wong seems to be more knowledgeable about more arcane spells than Uncle. [[spoiler:He knew the original spell that turned Shendu into a statue.]] But he does not seem to keep up with Uncle's more modern spells.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Half the time he appears, he pulls out some new magic, sometimes something that he never uses again, like turning Valmont into a child or creating a giant ogre out of thin air.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: He is featured at Season 3's opening titles to show his status as that season's main antagonist.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Daolon or Daolan? [[http://www.sonypictures.com/tv/kids/index_jackie.html Even the official website can't decide.]] Daolon seems to be the more popular spelling among the fanbase.
* SmokeOut: He conceals himself in blue smoke when he [[VillainTeleportation teleports]]. Sometimes he [[DefeatEqualsExplosion "poofs"]] like his Dark Chi Warriors.
* SmugSnake: He's utterly convinced of his ingenuity, yet rarely succeeds.
* SquishyWizard: Out of the main villains in ''JCA'', he's physically the least fit. It makes things much harder for him after [[spoiler:he's stripped of his magic]].
* TooDumbToLive: The only one who was surprised that [[spoiler:Shendu betrayed him]] was Wong himself.
* TookALevelInBadass: Went from a one-off villain in Season 2 to the main villain of Season 3.
* TooManyMouths: He can create in his palms round mouths. He can absord the Talisman magic into himself through them.
* VillainousCheekbones: His wilted flesh makes no effort to hide his classically villainous cheekbones.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: He's last seen in "Deja Vu", being taken away by the past Enforcers for interrogation. While Jackie returns to the present, [[FridgeHorror Wong's ultimate fate is never revealed]].]]
* WizardDuel: Almost in their every encounter, he and Uncle engage in this.
* YouKilledMyFather: States that he "defeated" Uncle's teacher, Chi Master Fong (the details of which are never brought up). While the show has a NeverSayDie policy, most dialogue indicates that Wong killed him.

!!Dark Chi Warriors
[[caption-width-right:380:Ready as soldiers, [[TheVoiceless silent as ghosts]]. From left to right: Gan, Chui and Ren.]]
[[caption-width-right:380:Meet [[FanNickname Dark Chi Enforcers]]. From left to right: Chui (Ratso), Ren (Finn) and Gan (Chow).]]
[[caption-width-right:320:And [[AndZoidberg Zhen]] (Hak Foo).]]

Daolon Wong's demonic henchmen. They originally consisted of Ren, Chui, and Gan; later they were replaced by Finn, Ratso, and Chow respectively. Eventually Hak Foo was also turned into one of the Warriors and renamed Zhen.
* BareYourMidriff: Chui/Ratso and Zhen's midriff are wholly exposed. The other two have theirs partially exposed.
* BizarreAlienBiology: Their eyelids are situated so that they open and close vertically, not horizontally like with a human.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: They have pitch-black eyes to reflect their nature as evil spirits
* DeathIsCheap: Any time they are seriously or fatally injured, they [[DefeatEqualsExplosion "poof" into clouds of smoke]], and are eventually revived and resummoned. [[ButtMonkey The Enforcers]] have this PlayedForLaughs.
* DropTheHammer: Chui/Ratso uses a sledgehammer.
* EvilRedhead: Except for [[BaldOfEvil Chui/Ratso]], they all have long red hair.
%%* EvilWearsBlack
* FacialMarkings: They all have lightning bolt on their chins (excluding Zhen) and on their foreheads a mark similiar to the one Wong has. They are both blue.
* FightingWithChucks: Gan/Chow's weapon is a sanjiegun, a three-sectional staff.
* FumaShuriken: Ren/Finn's WeaponOfChoice. It's used close range or as a throwing weapon.
* InASingleBound: They can jump quite high, Zhen even more so.
* MeaningfulName: Chui can mean "hammer" in Chinese. Zhen can mean "rare" or "precious" in Chinese, reflecting Wong's slightly higher valuing of Hak Foo due to him being more competent than the other Enforcers.
* ReplacementMooks: After Uncle trapped the original Dark Chi Warriors inside a magic box, Daolon Wong used the Dark Hand Enforcers as substitutes.
* SealedEvilInACan: The original Warriors are sealed by Uncle into the Lost Urn of Wei Cheng, forcing Wong to replace them with the Enforcers.
* SlaveMooks: Finn, Ratso, and Chow were forcibly turned into Dark Chi Warriors against their will (with Wong even saying that they're enslaved to do his bidding). [[BlessedWithSuck They resent their ridiculous new appearances, and being forced to do the old wizard's bidding]]. Hak Foo on the other hand, while he didn't agree to join, [[FreakyIsCool doesn't mind it because he's more powerful now]].
* SmokeOut: When they teleport or "die", they are consealed in blue smoke.
* TheStoic: While the Enforcers are just as expressive as before, the original Warriors were mostly expressionless. One of the rare cases of them being NotSoStoic was when [[spoiler:Jade fought them to a standstill with the Ben Shui Order's Chosen One's staff]].
* SummonToHand: They can summon their weapon to their hands, either over a long distance or out of thin air.
* SuperStrength: The skinny Chow/Gan could break down a door that was barricaded. Chui/Ratso easily caught a tree that was falling on him. Zhen is the strongest of them.
* SuperpoweredMooks: They're faster and stronger than humans, have [[MindOverMatter telekinetic control over their weapons]], and have ResurrectiveImmortality.
* TastesLikePurple: They can ''smell'' magic. This way they locate Jade, who was using the Snake Talisman's power at the time.
* TheVoiceless: The original Warriors were completely mute. However, the Enforcers are still just as talkative after their transformations.

[[folder:Oni and Shadowkhan]]
The [[{{Youkai}} Oni]] are hideous horned demons from Japanese folklore. 10 of them (led by Tarakudo) commanded an army of [[LivingShadow Shadowkhan]], who are demonic shadow warriors.
* BadassArmy: The Oni and Shadowkhan could possibly engulf the entire world in darkness (figuratively and [[TheNightThatNeverEnds literally]]).
* FangsAreEvil: The Oni have sharp teeth.
* HornedHumanoid: The Oni have small horns.
* KeystoneArmy: While generally efficient, the Shadowkhan are dependent on their masters' instructions. Other than the Oni, people can control them only as long as they're wearing an Oni Mask or having [[spoiler:Tarakudo's mark]]. [[spoiler:Imprisoning Tarakudo in his mask seals also his Generals and all the Shadowkhan.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: During the 4th season, when Tarakudo or the Oni are involved, you hear a quiet sinister tone.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: The Oni are fearsome ogre-like demons from Japanese mythology. But the Shadowkhan on the other hand were created for the show.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Once all 9 Oni Generals are united, they collectively possess enough power to eventually cover the entire world in darkness. Presumably, if Tarakudo were not a floating head, he could do this all by himself.
* SealedArmyInACan: Tarakudo was reduced to being a floating head and imprisoned in another dimension, while all the Oni Generals and their respective Shadowkhan tribes were trapped inside the Oni Masks. After Daolon Wong accidentally released Tarakudo, the latter seeks to liberate the other Oni and Shadowkhan. [[spoiler:Eventually all the Oni and Shadowkhan are freed from their imprisonment, however all of them are trapped again inside a final Oni Mask placed on Tarakudo's face.]]
* TimeAbyss: Like the Demon Sorcerers, Tarakudo and his Generals are ancient, but their actual age is never stated. The fact that Shendu used one of the Oni Masks to summon the Shadowkhan, indicating they were defeated before he was turned into a statue, hints that the Oni might be even ''older'' than the Demon Sorcerers.
* {{Youkai}}: The Oni are a class of creatures from the folklore of Japan.

-->''I am the one and only King of the Shadowkhan!''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MiguelFerrer

The main villain of Season 4. He is the king of the Shadowkhan and lord of all Oni. He seeks to release his nine Oni Generals and their Shadowkhan armies to take over the world.
* AffablyEvil: The least strict boss to the Enforcers and isn't particularly malevolent - while he still wants to take over the world, he isn't a dick about it.
* ArcVillain: Tarakudo appears in the first and last episodes of the fourth season.
* AristocratsAreEvil: He styles himself as the "Lord of All Oni" and "King of the Shadowkhan".
%%* BeardOfEvil
* BadassGrandpa: He is an ancient and immortal demon after all.
* BadassMustache: His mustache is similar to those included to the classical samurai masks.
* BadBoss: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] when compared to the other {{Big Bad}}s of the series, though he has his moments when the Enforcers stretch his patience.
* BattleStrip: [[spoiler: When he regains his body, he prepares for battle... by ripping off his shirt.]]
* BenevolentBoss: This is the one of the biggest things that set him apart from the other villains. While the others have at best strained relationship with their associates, Tarakudo treats his underlings - human or Oni - more leniently, and his Generals are never shown plotting behind his back.
* BerserkButton: He becomes absolutely murderous once he finds out that the J-Team has obtained his mask.
* BigBad: Of Season 4, being the leader of the Oni and the Shadowkhan.
* BigNo: He yells this when [[spoiler:he's being sucked into his mask]].
* BroughtDownToBadass: When Tarakudo is hit with a spell that causes him to [[spoiler:have a body so that the tenth mask can be used to seal away him and the rest of the Oni]], it also removes his MindOverMatter powers. [[spoiler:Even without them, sticking the mask to his face proved the only way to stop him and his armies.]]
* CombatPragmatist: When he turns out to be evenly matched in telekinesis with Eggbert the Noble Rooster, he uses a distraction to take the rooster out.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Of all the main antagonists, Tarakudo is probably the wisest and the most sensible.
* DeadpanSnarker: He provides more humor than the other {{Big Bad}}s with his dry wit.
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler: As a tattoo that Jade put on her leg. Not surprisingly it's a MarkOfTheBeast (see below).]]
* EvilSoundsDeep: Helps that his voice is provided by Miguel Ferrer.
* EvilWearsBlack: [[spoiler: When he regains his physical body, he appears in a black gi with [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver red patterns]].]]
* FlyingFace: For most of Season 4, Tarakudo is a floating head giving orders.
* IntangibleMan: Tarakudo is an Intangible Floating Demon Head. It makes him a very difficult enemy to fight, but also forces him to rely heavily on his minions. He still prefers it to having a real body, [[spoiler:since the only way he would get that is if someone found the mask that can [[SealedEvilInACan seal him away]].]]
* KickTheDog: After the Bat Khan mask is removed from Scruffy in "The Amazing T-Troop", he makes a telekinetic shot at Jade. Scruffy takes the shot and seems to die. Tarakudo merely says "Oops" and callously vanishes. [[spoiler:Good thing nothing happened to Scruffy.]]
* KungFuWizard: [[spoiler:After being forced into a physical body, Tarakudo drops the mental tricks and starts kicking ''Jackie's'' butt single-handedly.]]
* MarkOfTheBeast: [[spoiler:If anyone gets a tattoo of Tarakudo's face, they will have demonic powers and become evil.]]
* MindOverMatter: Tarakudo has the power of levitation and telekinesis.
* MyNameIsInigoMontoya: "Bow before Tarakudo, king of all Shadowkhan, lord of all Oni."
* OutsideContextVillain: As the majority of the shows villain's were Chinese in origin, none of the heroes were prepared for a Japanese one to appear. Even Uncle had no idea who he was when he showed up.
* PungeonMaster: He makes puns more than his predecessor {{Big Bad}}s. In [[HalloweenEpisode "Fright Fight Night"]], after reproving Jackie's lack of a Halloween costume, he places a Jack-o'-lantern on his head, naming him "Jackie-o'-lantern". And in "Ninja Twilight", when he first meets Viper, he says that she's quite a catch before trapping her in a fishnet.
* RedOniBlueOni: Personality-wise, the collected Tarakudo is blue to the boisterous Ikazuki's red. It's ironic because, in literal terms, Tarakudo's and Ikazuki's faces are red and blue respectively.
* SealedEvilInACan: Tarakudo is accidentally released from imprisonment in another dimension by Daolon Wong. [[spoiler:In the end of the season, Tarakudo's own mask is placed on his face, which traps not only him, but also all the other Oni and Shadowkhan.]]
* ShirtlessScene: [[spoiler: After the above mentioned BattleStrip, he spends his final screentime shirtless.]]
* SingleStrokeBattle: [[spoiler: After he regains his body, he performs this on El Toro and Viper at the same time, in mid-air no less. No weapons are used, and no blood is spilled.]]
* SoreLoser: He admits being this before committing the above mentioned KickTheDog moment.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: Unlike most of the supernatural foes shown, Tarakudo has amber eyes instead of red.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Twice during the show, Tarakudo asks Jade if she's going to reclaim her title as the Queen of the Shadowkhan. It's up to debate how serious he is about this, but it's hinted that [[VillainTakesAnInterest he'd want to be her mentor]].
* WeaksauceWeakness: As an Oni, Tarakudo's eyes are very sensitive to onions, and having it thrown in his face will make him retreat.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: For the above mentioned reason, he freaks out anytime he sees an onion.
--> "[[OhCrap No!]] [[AnythingButThat Anything but onions!]]"
* XanatosGambit: [[spoiler:The Oni generals are released whenever all nine masks are assembled in one place. Since Tarakudo is the only one that knows this, whether he gets all the masks, or the J-Team does, he still wins.]]

!!Oni Generals
[[caption-width-right:320:Yep, even the leader deserves to have a spot.]]
[[caption-width-right:550:[[labelnote:Click here to see spoilers]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/306e1f255dca359bbc09c7dc6b2216fe.png[[/labelnote]]]]
9 Oni who served Tarakudo. Each of them has been trapped inside a mask. Any mortal who wears an Oni Mask will be possessed, and can summon a unique type of Shadowkhan.
* BaldOfEvil: Most of them don't have hair on their heads.
* BodyHorror: When a mask is worn, the user's face (and sometimes their whole body) will change to resemble that of the Oni possessing them.
* BodySnatcher: Once the mask's host uses their Shadowkhan, they begin to have equal control of the user's body, whether the user (namely Captain Black, Finn, Paco, Jade and Valmont) want them to or not.
* BrainFood: Apparently some, if not all of them, like to eat human brains.
* CastingAShadow: Summoning the Shadowkhan and spreading darkness are the main powers of the Oni Generals.
* DemonicPossession: When an Oni Mask is placed on the face of the user, they are still conscious of their actions, but are greatly influenced by the mask, and eventually it will completely take over. Finn was the only one who wasn't affected, because the Rat Talisman awakened Ikazuki, who was accidentally placed on his butt.
* {{Evil Mask}}s: The season's {{MacGuffin}}s are masks that can summon different breeds of Shadowkhan. That is the main reason the human villains want the masks in the first place.
* EvilWearsBlack: [[spoiler: After they are freed from their masks, they wear almost fully black uniforms.]]
* {{Flat Character}}s: Aside from Ikazuki, they don't get much characterization beyond vileness and loyal devotion to Tarakudo.
* {{Four Star Badass}}es: They all command vast Shadowkhan armies, and they fought personally before their imprisonment [[spoiler:and after their liberation]].
* MadeOfIron: [[spoiler:After they are released from their masks, a blast from the Dragon Talisman doesn't injure them.]]
* SealedEvilInACan: All of the Oni Generals are trapped within masks and by extension, the Shadowkhan they control. [[spoiler:Ultimately, all the Generals are sealed in the mask designed to imprison Tarakudo.]]
* SlasherSmile: Their pointy teeth cause them to make these.
* SummonMagic: Each Oni General commands a tribe of Shadowkhan and, as per usual, can summon them at will. Shendu commanded one tribe because he magically manipulated one of the masks.
* TheVoiceless: Excluding Ikazuki, they're never heard speaking.
* UndyingLoyalty: They all have this towards Tarakudo, as they're never shown plotting behind his back.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Onions can normally hurt them, unless an Oni Mask is attached to a human host.
* WildHair: Some of them have this, as you might expect from the reputedly wild Onis.

[[caption-width-right:332:[[labelnote:Click here to see spoilers]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/7c2b30ba731e62560e1e029a28ee3c19.png[[/labelnote]]]]

The only Oni General who is named. He is the second-in-command behind Tarakudo. He can summon Samurai Khan.
* ButtMonkey: Despite being the most powerful and the only named one of the Oni Generals, Ikazuki is often at the butt of all jokes. First by being revived without a body, then by literally being at Finn's butt for his debut episode, [[spoiler:and finally being "creamed" between Viper and El Toro's body slam]].
* TheDragon: In "The Demon Behind", Ikazuki is addressed as Tarakudo's second-in-command by Tohru. This comes into play in the fourth season finale, where Ikazuki orders the other Demon Generals to attack the Chans and remains with Tarakudo at Section 13 base during the Earth's invasion.
* TheDreaded: Ikazuki is feared as Tarakudo's most fearsome general. But it's played for laughs as he ends up the ButtMonkey in all appearances - in his first, literally.
* EverythingsBetterWithSamurai: He commands Samurai Khan. [[spoiler:When he is released from his mask, he wears a [[CoolHelmet samurai helmet]].]]
%%* EvilIsHammy
%%* EvilSoundsDeep
%%* HotBlooded
* {{Jerkass}}: He's respectful towards Tarakudo and presumably towards the other Generals, but towards everyone else he acts haughtily.
* KneelBeforeZod: He often orders people to bow before "his mighty form".
* RedOniBlueOni: Personality-wise, the boisterous Ikazuki is red to the collected Tarakudo's blue. It's ironic because, in literal terms, Tarakudo's and Ikazuki's faces are red and blue respectively.
* SealedEvilInACan: Like the other generals. [[spoiler:Is ultimately imprisoned within Tarakudo's mask, along with everyone else.]]
* TwoBeingsOneBody: The Rat Talisman is used on his mask to make him talk. Later he accidentally is stuck onto Finn's ''rear''.
* UndyingLoyalty: He refuses to reveal the Chans a way to defeat his master when they're interrogating him.

!!The Shadowkhan
Demonic shadow spirits. They were introduced as {{ninja}}s who served Shendu, and briefly [[KidWithTheLeash Jade]]. In Season 4 we learn that their original masters were the Oni, and there are 9 different varieties of them.
* TheCorruption: To anyone who summons them who isn't already evil, and sometimes even then. It's the summoning that starts it, not the Oni Masks, as the corrupting only sets in once they are called upon. Though more noble-minded people can resist for a time, the Oni's influence will dominate the host eventually.
* DarkIsEvil: Quite literally, see LivingShadow.
* DefeatEqualsExplosion: When they "die", they vaporize into black mist.
* EliteMooks: They are far more skilled and deadly than The Enforcers.
* EvilWearsBlack: They wear black clothes (or black skin).
* HumanoidAbomination: All but the Leech Khan and the Squid Khan, to varying degrees.
* LivingShadow: Shadowkhan are just that, shadows manifested into physical form.
* MookCarryover: Inverted. They are introduced as serving Shendu, but originally served Tarakudo, despite the latter not appearing until Season 4. Played straight with Shadow-Jade and to a lesser extent with anyone who put on a mask, though in both cases the summoner became BrainwashedAndCrazy. Daolon Wong ''tried'' to do this, but ended up freeing Tarakudo instead, though he had briefly controlled them in an earlier episode.
* MalevolentMaskedMen: They all wear ninja-like masks. We only get to see one Squid Khan's mask removed (and its face wasn't pretty). Presumably, all Shadowkhan are equally as horrifying underneath.
* MundaneUtility: Some people have used the Shadowkhan for something else than combat. For example:
** When Jade got control of the Ninja Shadowkhan in "Queen of the Shadowkhan", she used them as household servants.
** When Ratso got the Razor-Khan Oni Mask, he used his Shadowkhan to play baseball.
** Captain Black is a double subversion. When he got the Sumo-Khan Oni Mask, he decided to replace all the Section 13 agents with Shadowkhan, claiming that they were better than humans in every way. We see several shots of Shadowkhan typing on computers, checking folders, arresting people... and mopping the floor.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: They come in many different shapes and sizes.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Like the Demon Sorcerers, Shadowkhan all have glowing red eyes of some sort, except for the eyeless Leech Khan.
* ReplacementMooks: When Daolon Wong gets fed up with the Enforcers' incompetence in "Sheep In, Sheep Out", he replaces them with the Ninja Khan until he decides that they're not superior after all.
* SealedArmyInACan: The Shadowkhan are all bound to the Oni Masks, until someone wears a mask and summons them. [[spoiler:In the end, all the Shadowkhan are trapped inside Tarakudo's mask, along with the Oni.]]
* ShadowWalker: The Shadowkhan can use shadows as dimensional doors. They once travelled through the Shadow Realm in order to enter Jade's dream.
* SummonMagic: The Shadowkhan can be summoned anywhere there is ambient shadow.
* TheVoiceless: They never speak.

!!!Ninja Khan
The most common kind of Shadowkhan, and the only type seen until Season 4. They have been summoned by Shendu and Daolon Wong (through sorcery), Jade and [[spoiler:Tohru]] (with the [[spoiler:Mark of Tarakudo]]), and Chow (with an Oni Mask).
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Whatever it's five or tens of them, they would take the same amount of effort to dispatch.
* FlechetteStorm: Sometimes they do this with their shuriken.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Averted. While they usually face the heroes face-to-face, they are actually very good at being stealthy and unseen in spite of their numbers.
* HumanoidAbomination: They're the most human-like in appearance, besides the blue skin and red eyes.
* JackOfAllStats: When compared to the other Shadowkhan, they appear to be the most versatile.
* KnifeNut: They can summon various weapons, but they mostly use throwing stars.
* McNinja: Subverted. They initially seem like this, as ninjas are Japanese and Shendu is ''Chinese''. Eventually it's revealed that Shendu merely possessed the mask that grants control over them.
* {{Ninja}}: They run and [[InASingleBound jump around]], use martial arts, and throw shuriken.
* NotQuiteFlight: They have in their suits capes which they can use for gliding.
* SmokeOut: They sometimes disappear by using smoke bombs.
* WallCrawl: They're shown to be able to do this without any visible tools for that purpose.

!!!Razor Khan
These Shadowkhan attack with sharp blade-like claws. They are summoned by Ratso with an Oni Mask.
* AbsurdlySharpBlade [[AbsurdlySharpClaws Claws]] / WolverineClaws
%%* AudibleSharpness
* FragileSpeedster: They seem to be the fastest type of Shadowkhan.
* KnifeNut: They have Freddy Krueger-like knife-gloved hands.
%%* MonstrousHumanoid
* NoodlePeople: While it's not exaggerated, their torso, head and limbs are thin. A special mention goes to their legs: they have pointed blades as their legs.
* WallCrawl: They can do this thanks to the blades their limbs consist of.

!!!Bat Khan
Flying Shadowkhan. They are summoned by Scruffy the dog, who somehow got an Oni Mask on his face.
* AirborneMook: They are the only Shadowkhan type which can fly.
* BatOutOfHell: They have bat-like wings and their body resembles that of a bat.
* EnergyBall: They can create these from shadow energy.
* LeotardOfPower: That's the closest thing their outfits could be called.

!!!Sumo Khan
Large and strong Shadowkhan. They are summoned by Captain Black with an Oni Mask.
* BossInMookClothing: They're abnormally strong, and [[NoSell completely immune to normal attacks]]. The only way to defeat them is with the Talismans.
* FingerPokeOfDoom: Just a fillip is enough to send Hak Foo flying through a wall.
* GiantMook: The largest type of Shadowkhan, after a fully grown Leech Khan.
* HumanoidAbomination: They don't look much different from Tohru. But their necks are more crouched.
* MightyGlacier: As stated above, they're strong and resilient. But they move slowly, and only by traveling through shadows they can move quickly.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: In the 4th season opening, one serves as the character who's punched by Jackie.
%%* SleevesAreForWimps
* SuperStrength: The Ox Talisman is needed to match them.
* SuperToughness: The Talismans are required to destroy them.
%%* WrestlerInAllOfUs

!!!Samurai Khan
Ikazuki's henchmen, who are ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. They are summoned by the reanimated Ikazuki Mask, while he was placed on Finn's butt.
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Their shadow katanas.
* ArmorIsUseless: See the FakeUltimateMook below.
* CoolHelmet: That too comes from being a samurai.
%%* EverythingsBetterWithSamurai:
* FakeUltimateMook: They're big, heavily armored samurai that wield shadow swords able to cut through anything, yet in the end they're just as easily defeated as the Ninja-Khan (or even easier). The fact that they're [[ButtMonkey Ikazuki's]] Shadowkhan is a justification.
* GlassCannon: Turns out that despite their armor, they're not that difficult to dissipate.
%%* HeavilyArmoredMook
* HumanoidAbomination: Besides being quite tall and having red eyes and blue hands, they're quite human-looking.

!!!Squid Khan
Slimy tentacled monsters who can "stretch like taffy". They are summoned by [[spoiler:Paco]] with an Oni Mask.
* CombatTentacles: Naturally, being squid monsters and all.
* EldritchAbomination: The Squid Khan are the only kind of Shadowkhan whose face we see, which turn out to be that of a hideous demonic-looking Cthulian monster.
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods
* ExtraEyes: They have seven little round eyes.
* TentacleRope: Their squid tentacles can be used for restraint.
* TooManyMouths: They seem to have another mouth ''on top of their head''!

!!!Crab Khan
They have large crab-like pincers in their right arms, and large scorpion-like stabbing claws in their left arms. They were temporarily split in half, because their Oni Mask was also split in half. They're summoned by Valmont and Jade with the two halves of the mask.
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Valmont and Jade each end up wearing half an Oni Mask, so when they summon their Crab Khan, they each end up getting the left and right halves of each mook. But Valmont's Shadowkhan retain the heads, while Jade's don't.
* HybridMonster: Like stated above, one of their arm has a crab-like pincers, and the other has a scorpion-like stabbing claw.
* LightningBruiser: When they are whole, they come off as strong, fast and durable.
%%* MonstrousHumanoid
%%* PowerPincers
* WhoNeedsTheirWholeBody: Played with. The left half-Shadowkhan (the ones who retained the heads) are able to fight somewhat effectively. The headless right half-Shadowkhan can barely get anything done.

!!!Leech Khan
They start out very small and pathetic, but they grow larger every time they eat a human's shadow (which incapacitates the victim). They are summoned by Hak Foo with an Oni Mask.
* AdorableEvilMinions: Really tiny Shadowkhan who look like plushies.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: The largest we see grows taller than most of the buildings of San Francisco.
* CastsNoShadow: When they have eaten a person's shadow, the victim literally casts no shadow, as seen with Tohru and Chow.
* EldritchAbomination: Along with the Squid Khan, they look very monstrous and unearthly compared to the other Shadowkhan.
* EyelessFace: They're the only Shadowkhan type that doesn't seem to have eyes.
* FourLeggedInsect: When they grow in size, they are revealed to have four legs. Try to imagine a leech with four legs at its lower body, and you have it.
* GiantMook: Eventually, they can grow really huge.
* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: They're not ninja warriors like the others, so they can't beat up enemies in a straight forward manner. However, they grow stronger with every shadow they consume.
* KillerRabbit: Because of how small they are, the Leech Khan are mistaken for harmless at first.
* MagikarpPower: The Leech Khan start off too weak to fight at all. If they manage to feed enough though, they can become the size of buildings.
* MiniMook: The Leech Khan start out very tiny.
* MiracleGroMonster: They grow by eating shadows of living creatures.
%%* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily:
* WallCrawl: At least the smaller ones can do this.

!!!Mantis Khan
Four-legged creatures with blade-like arms. [[spoiler:Nobody gets to wear their Oni Mask, but they appear briefly after their Oni General is freed.]]
* AnimalisticAbomination: They resemble mantises after all.
%%* FourLeggedInsect
* OurCentaursAreDifferent: You might describe them as "mantis centaurs".
* SlayingMantis: Their blades resemble those a mantis would have.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Of all the Shadowkhan, they get the least amount of screen time, because [[spoiler:no one gets a chance to wear their general's mask before it's destroyed]].

[[folder:The Ice Gang]]
[[caption-width-right:400:Now they include street gangs, eh? From left to right: MC Cobra, Strikemaster Ice and DJ Fist.]]
[[caption-width-right:400:Now they're GreenAndMean. From left to right: DJ Fist, Strikemaster Ice and MC Cobra.]]
Drago's henchmen. They consist of Strikemaster Ice, MC Cobra, and DJ Fist. Originally a pizza boy, Ice joined a Shaolin-like monastery where he learned martial arts and met his boys Fist and Cobra. After they were kicked out of the monastery for bad behavior, the Ice Gang sought revenge but were stopped by Jackie and the Enforcers. They were later recruited by Drago and changed them into his dragon henchmen.
* {{Arrogant Kung Fu Guy}}s: Awesome skills at martial arts used for greedy criminal activities? They're possibly even more petty than Hak Foo.
* {{Badass}}es: They have proven to be more of a match for Jackie than the Enforcers (excluding Hak Foo) ever were. They still bumble around quite a bit, however.
* {{Badass Normal}}s: They received from {{warrior monk}}s martial arts training that allows them to fare well against Jackie.
* [[BastardUnderstudy Bastard Understudies]]: All three to Drago, when they think they had the upper hand after Drago loses his Fire Demon powers.

* BroughtDownToNormal: They spend a good deal of the last season being powered up, but lose all their powers when [[spoiler:Drago is banished to the Netherworld]].

* {{Draconic Humanoid}}s: They become this after Drago gives them a piece of his Fire Demon power.

* {{Empowered Badass Normal}}s: For the duration of their service to Drago, they received some of his Fire Demon chi (and in the finale, the chis of three other demons).
* EvilerThanThou: Towards Finn, Ratso, and Chow. They are just as greedy and comical as them, but more arrogant, violent and competent. [[{{Foreshadowing}} It's no wonder that the Ice Gang replaced the Enforcers as Drago's henchmen]].
* {{Genius Bruiser}}s: Cobra and Fist have proven themselves to be adept with technology.
** In "Clash Of The Titanics", they managed to build a fully functional submarine out of broken cars in their junkyard hideout.
** In "Stealing Thunder", they do various mechanical decorations in their new tower hideout (The Space Needle of Seattle).
** It's possible that they also built the monster trucks and tasers used to kidnap Jackie, Uncle, and Captain Black in the second to last episode.
* IFightForTheStrongestSide: That's the reason they decide to make amends with [[spoiler:[[OneWingedAngel the Demon Chi empowered]]]] Drago after their betrayal.
* {{Kiai}}: While fighting, they exclaim a lot of cliched martial art cries.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Their theme is a quick rock tempo.
* ManChild: The Ice Gang all act like overgrown teenagers, although they do seem to be younger than the Enforcers.
* NeverMyFault: Like the Enforcers, they're not willing to accept responsibility for their failures.
%%* {{Only Known by Their Nickname}}s
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: They obtain it at Season 5 as the villains receiving Jackie's punch.

* ReplacementMooks: They take the Enforcers' place as the henchmen of the ongoing season.
* SpikyHair: They all have this in their human forms to accentuate their rebellious street gang imago.
* TerribleTrio: Though a more competent trio than the Enforcers ever were.
* VillainExitStageLeft: Subverted during the GrandFinale: after [[spoiler:Drago has been banished]] and the Ice Gang turn back into humans, they attempt to sneak away, only to be stopped by El Toro and Paco.

* {{Chupacabra}}: It looks more like Bigfoot or some other feral monster then a grey alien, but the cattle stalker is still present.
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: Much like a werewolf, the chupacabra's bite or scratch can turn a human into another chupacabra, but only at night.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Both the first chupacabra and the transformed El Toro have fully red eyes.
* SpikesOfVillainy
* WeaksauceWeakness: The first chupacabra was disintegrated by sunlight. El Toro couldn't walk into the sunlight, even when he reverted to human form during daytime.

!!The Old Monk
--> ''Ancient wisdom: Words are breath that blows the fire of knowledge''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Tim Lounibos

An old monk who guided Jackie to the Lotus Temple where the magical scrolls of Hung Chao are hidden. A really [[CloudCuckoolander quirky]] person who's constantly in meditation and speaks in proverbs and riddles. He turns out to be villainous, and is also after these scrolls.
* AnimatedArmor: He uses the scroll's power to have this to fight Jackie.
%%* BadassGrandpa

Accidentally released by [[LiteralSplitPersonality Yin Jackie]], he goes out for revenge... by seeking out [[SinsOfOurFathers the descendants of Magus]], so that he can [[ToServeMan eat them]].
* AffablyEvil: If you forget his desire for revenge and mischievous tendencies, you might view him as a jovial fellow. [[spoiler:His Yang side averts this trope, being more focused on revenge and less soft-spoken than normal Jack. His Yin side is a NiceGuy to the point that he protects Simone and helps the heroes to defeat his opposite.]]
* CombatParkour: He fights by leaping around and using the environment to his advantage.
* EvilFeelsGood: We get this exchange:
-->'''Yin Jackie''': *looking more angry than ever* Do you enjoy being a meanie?
-->'''Spring-Heeled Jack''': I confess, yes! *[[CheshireCatGrin grins widely]]*
* EvilLaugh: He laughs coarsely.
* InASingleBound: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin His shoes really do have springs mounted in their heels.]]
* LiteralSplitPersonality: [[spoiler: The Tiger Talisman is used on him temporarily. Yin Jack actually protects Simone from Yang Jack, and reveals his [[WeaksauceWeakness ultimate weakness]].]]
* OurTrollsAreDifferent: He has the basic look as a squat figure and eater of humans, but he's jovial and uses springs.
* PublicDomainCharacter: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spring-heeled_Jack Spring-heeled Jack]] is an English folklore character.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: He's determined to punish the Magus family for [[SinsOfOurFathers their ancestor Simon]]'s imprisonment of him. [[ToServeMan He tries to eat]] Jade's classmate Simone Magus.

--> "Magus Magus where ever you are, Spring Heel Jack will not be far!"

!!The Jiangshi
[[caption-width-right:320:Don't disturb the sleeping beauty.]]

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/DeeBradleyBaker

An undead vampire who haunted an abandoned castle in the mountains of China. It drains chi from humans, which can turn them into vampire slaves if left untreated.
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: It feeds on Uncle's chi, and as nobody knew how to transfer their chi to him, he was turned into the Jiangshi's slave until his chi was returned.
%%* BaldOfEvil
* CharacterDeath: All the stolen chi is reclaimed from the vampire as the sun rises.
* ChineseVampire: The fact that he is a vampire of the Chinese variety is a critical plot point, because the methods of dealing with him are different from the Western varieties.
* EyeOfNewt: How to reclaim all the stolen chi from it? [[spoiler:Collect a toadstool from a graveyard, place it inside the vampire's left sock and throw the sock into a river]] before sunrise. Otherwise the chi remains with the vampire forever.

* MonochromaticEyes: Its eyes are initially pale white, but after absorbing chi from Tohru, Jade, and Uncle, it gains slit [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]] [[AnimalEyes cat-like]] pupils.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Consumes chi instead of blood. It doesn't bite, but the chi is transferred as green energy through the eyes. It's blind, so it sniffs to find its target by the smell of its breath. It cannot be harmed with a wooden stake. It cannot cross a running river. However, it can still be killed by sunlight.
* ReforgedIntoAMinion: Its victim becomes a servant, unless they are given someone else's chi.
* SuddenlyVoiced: It's initially mute, but after absorbing chi from Tohru, Jade, and Uncle, it gains the ability to speak.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Attaching a special note of paper to a Jiangshi's face will render it motionless. And much like Western vampires, sunlight is lethal to them.
* YourSoulIsMine: Says a variation of this, when it's mere moments to the sunrise.
--> "In moments, the collective chi will be mine forever."

!!Monkey King
[[caption-width-right:320:...and creepy.]]
--> ''Stop me if you've heard this one befooorre...''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Bill Tanzer (first appearance) and Creator/BillyWest (second appearance)

Monkey King is a trickster monkey. Based on the Chinese legend of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Wukong Sun Wukong]], he is released whenever someone pulls his puppet form's leg. The luckless victim becomes a puppet in his place, only to be restored if he [[spoiler:pulls ''their'' leg]], which he isn't likely to do of his own free will. He might seem like an irritating prankster at first glance, but he takes a ''very'' dim view of anyone trying to spoil his fun.
* AdaptationalVillainy: While Sun Wukong had a mischievous side to him, he wasn't an AxCrazy psycho prankster.

* EvilerThanThou: He ends up on the "thou" end against Daolon Wong.
* GreenEyedMonster: He couldn't stand other people showing off better than him in talents.
* TheGrimReaper: He dresses as this at one point, proving to be quite adept with a [[SinisterScythe scythe]]. We even hear a music you would associate with TheGrimReaper.
* TheHyena: A high pitched laugh accompanies and follows his lethal pranks.
* LaughablyEvil: Strives to be hilarious, at least from his AxCrazy point of view.
* TheMadHatter: When Jade argues that feeding puppet-Jackie into a wood-chipper isn't funny:
--> "Haven't you noticed? I have a WEIRD sense of humor!"
* ManiacMonkeys: Evil monkey trickster.
* OminousOperaCape: At one point, he wears a purple version this, complete with [[Franchise/ThePhantomOfTheOpera the mask]].
* ThePrankster: Everything he does is motivated by his love of malicious mischief.
* PsychopathicManChild: Despite his great age, he acts like an overgrown, attention-seeking {{delinquent}}.
* PublicDomainCharacter: It's never made explicit, but he's basically Sun Wukong, the Monkey King from ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest''.
%%* PungeonMaster
* PuppetPermutation: He's a wooden dummy, but he changes into a live being when someone pulls his leg. The person who pulls his leg turns into a dummy themselves. [[spoiler:And if the Monkey King pulls the victim's leg, their positions change back to normal.]]
* SlasherSmile: Often sports these when indulding his lunatic fun.
* SublimeRhyme: The instructions for switching places with a person in terms of living-puppet.

--> ''I must once again safeguard these, lest they fall into the hands of the Ultimate Evil.''

-->'''Voiced by:''' David Carradine

A sacred warrior of the Ling Dynasty. Nine hundred years ago, he led the uprising against Shendu, turning the demon into a statue and taking away his powers in the form of the Talismans. He's been long dead, but one episode features a terracotta statue of him. The Rat Talisman is used on the statue, bringing [[LivingStatue live to it]]. The statue has original Lo Pei's personality and powers. In the end of the episode, he's turned back into a statue.

%%* BadassBeard
* BadassGrandpa: A wise old chi sage, similar to Uncle.

!![[Myth/ChineseMythology The Eight Immortals]]
[[caption-width-right:320:From left to right: Zhang Guolao, Lü Dongbin, Li Tieguai, Lan Caihe, Han Xiangzi, Cao Guojiu, Zhongli Quan & He Xiangu.]]
Eight legendary heroes of ancient China. They are the ones who originally banished Shendu and his siblings to the Demon Netherworld and locked their portals with the Pan'Ku Box. However, the artifacts they used to do this (their symbols) were tainted with the demons' chi.
* ArtifactOfDoom: The artifacts they used to seal the Demon Sorcerors (their symbols) absorbed some of the respective demon's chi. Anyone who absorbs a Demon Chi will gain the powers of the respective Demon Sorcerer, but the chi will also [[BodyHorror mutate the person's body, making it look like the Demon Sorcerer]], and [[TheCorruption the demon's evil nature slowly corrupts the person's mind]]. And the changes will supposedly be permanent if the chi is not removed in time.
%%* BadassBeard: All except Lü Dongbin, Lan Caihe and He Xiangu.
* BadassGrandpa: All of them except [[TheSmurfettePrinciple He]] [[NeverMessWithGranny Xiangu]] were very old when they defeated their respective Demon Sorcerer. It takes a while to be as good as they were, you know?
%%* BadassMustache: Zhang Guolao, Li Tieguai, Lan Caihe and Cao Guojiu.
%%* BaldOfAwesome: Lü Dongbin and Li Tieguai.
* {{Big Good}}s: It is through their heroics and legacy that the Chan Clan is able to fight Shendu's siblings.

%%* EyesAlwaysShut: Except He Xiangu, they're never shown with opened eyes.
* FlowerMotifs: He Xiangu's symbol is a lotus pod, Lan Caihe's symbol is an unidentified flower, and Li Tieguai's symbol is a gourd.
* HandicappedBadass: Li Tieguai is shown to have a bad leg. [[AllThereInTheManual When he became an immortal, his soul was transferred into a maimed beggar's body]].
* HeroesPreferSwords: This is a downplayed trope. Only Lü Dongbin's symbol is a sword.
* LadyOfWar: He Xiangu is an immortal chi sage in an [[KickingAssInAllHerFinery elegant dress]].
* MagicMusic: Zhang Guolao's symbol is a drum, Cao Guojiu's symbol is a pair of castanets, and Han Xiangzi's symbol is [[MagicalFlutist a flute]].
%%* MonochromaticEyes: He Xiangu
%%* NiceHat: Han Xiangzi and Zhongli Quan.
* NoodleIncident: The Fire Demon Chi is never discussed. Since Drago already had the fire powers inherited from his father, it's natural he would not be interested in pursuing the artifact containing his father's chi.
* PaperFanOfDoom: Zhongli Quan's symbol is a fan.
%%* PinkMeansFeminine: He Xiangu.
* PoweredArmor: The Armor of the Gods. It's an ancient armor that the Immortals used in their battles against the Demon Sorcerers, and one of the few remaining relics left behind by them. When worn, it [[AdaptiveArmor adjusts to the wielder's physique]] and enhances [[InASingleBound their]] [[SuperStrength physical]] [[SuperToughness abilities]].
* PrecursorHeroes: Similar to Lo Pei, they are famous heroes who defeated the Demon Sorcerers in the past.
* {{Public Domain Character}}s: They are figures from UsefulNotes/{{Taoism}}. They were originally mortal humans who achieved {{Immortality}} and various other magical powers through various means, usually as rewards after being tested by a Taoist sage [[Creator/{{Laozi}} Lao Tzu]] or another immortal.
%%* PurpleIsPowerful: Lü Dongbin's clothes are purple and black.
%%* RedIsHeroic: Zhang Guolao has red in his clothes.
%%* RedHeadedHero: Zhongli Quan.
* TheVoiceless: They never speak in the flashbacks they are shown.

%%* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: He Xiangu. Cao Guojiu has purple hair.

!!Chi Master Fong
[[caption-width-right:320:This is all we see about him.]]
A deceased Chinese mystic who taught Uncle magic for 15 years. Somewhere along the line, Daolon Wong [[NeverSayDie "defeated"]] him.
%%* BlueIsHeroic: His figurine wears a blue robe.
* TheGhost: We don't get to see a flashback of him or to hear his voice, but in "The Good, the Bad, the Blind, the Deaf and the Mute", we see on a shrine dedicated to his memory a statue and a small figurine of him.

* {{Leitmotif}}: He has one in "The Good, the Bad, the Blind, the Deaf and the Mute", when he "spirit communicates". It's a slow and quiet flute tone.
* TheMentor: He taught Uncle all his magic.
* OldMaster: Similar to Uncle, he was an old and wise chi sage who taught Uncle. [[MasterApprenticeChain What Uncle is to Tohru, Fong was to Uncle.]]
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: In "The Good, the Bad, the Blind, the Deaf and the Mute", his spirit guides Uncle and his family. He doesn't appear as a "physical spirit", but instead he gives signs through forces of nature (like how [[Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride Mufasa did with Rafiki]]). It should be noted that [[MeaningfulName Fong can literally mean "wind"]] in Chinese.
* PosthumousCharacter: All we know about him comes from what Uncle and Wong say about him.
* ShrineToTheFallen: He has a shrine and a statue to his memory somewhere in South China.
* SpiritAdvisor: He appears to Uncle in various abstract forms to provide guidance.

!!Super Moose

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ClancyBrown

An anthropomorphic moose superhero. Normally a fictitious character, unless Jade uses the Rat Talisman to bring a stuffed doll of him to life.
* ActionHero: His first solution to problems is action.
* AnimalSuperhero: SUPER MOOSE!
* AnimateInanimateObject: Thanks to the Rat Talisman, he becomes a [[LivingToys living toy.]]
* {{Badass}}: For a toy, he's surprisingly effective.
* BadassAdorable: A crime fighting stuffed animal.
* BigDamnHeroes: He has saved people in every episode he appears in.
* BoisterousBruiser: He charges into battle with ANTLER ACTION!
* CatchPhrase:
** "Da-da-da-da-da-da, ANTLER ACTION!"
** "Evil on the loose, you do not want to mess with Super Moose!"
* NonHumanSidekick: At least twice he has acted as a sidekick for Jade.
* TheNoseKnows: Like Daolon Wong's Dark Chi Warriors, he can smell Talisman magic.

[[folder:Other Characters]]
!!Mama Tohru
--> ''Only antique I see is the Billy Goat there!''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Amy Hill

[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Tohru's mother]]. She only appears in a handful of episodes but leaves quite an impact. She shows the Chans a new side of Tohru, and becomes Uncle's arch-rival.
* {{Acrofatic}}: She's overweight but can run on railings.
* ActionMom: She prohibits her son from fighting because she wants to protect him.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Her relationship with Tohru is easily summarized as this.
* AsianRudeness: She rivals Uncle in her lack of manners and height of arrogance.
* BackToBackBadasses: She takes this posture with Uncle in her debut episode.
* {{Badass}}: Guess where [[BadassFamily Tohru]] gets his [[{{Badass}} badassery]] from?
* BadassNormal: Unlike Uncle, she doesn't have any magic at her disposal but can still take on the supernatural.
* BeautyMark: She has one near her left eye. Uncle once mocks it.
* CoolOldLady: While she's short-tempered and antagonistic towards Uncle, she's not a woman any criminal would want to trifle with.
* DeadpanSnarker: She is a master of sarcasm. For instance, when Uncle accused her of cheating at Mahjong by moving pieces when he sneezed, she replied:
-->"Anytime you sneeze, ''all the pieces move''. Bird peak nose should have its own ''zip code''."
* DistaffCounterpart: The only significant difference between her and Uncle is that she doesn't have magic at her disposal.
* HeyYou: To her, Uncle is always [[EmbarrassingNickname "Billy Goat", "Junk Monger", or "Junk Man"]].
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: A mother and son example; her son is huge and she herself is barely taller than ''Jade''.
* InvisibleJerkass: After she's accidentally turned invisible in "The Invisible Mom", she torments Uncle in various ways until she reveals her location.
* {{Jerkass}}: Mostly towards Uncle. In her debut episode, she was also very bossy to Tohru and dismissive towards Jackie and Jade.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She loves her son, and also cooperated with Uncle to save Tohru and Jackie. She becomes less abrasive towards Jackie and Jade. Towards Uncle, not so much.
* JewishMother: A Japanese one actually, but she's just as nagging and overbearing as most examples of this trope.
* LikeFatherUnlikeSon: Mother and son appear initially to be polar opposites, but they do share some similarities, like protective attitude towards their loved ones. During his feud with Uncle in "The Demon Behind", Tohru's behavior towards Uncle resembled his mother's mannerisms towards him. He even called Uncle "Billy Goat" at one point. Tohru's future self wears a red coat similar to that his mother wears.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: She doesn't know that Tohru's previous employer Valmont is a crime lord or that her son was a thug. Tohru asks his extended family to keep it that way.

* MamaBear: You think her mountain-sized son is more dangerous? Threaten him and find out how wrong you are.
* MyBelovedSmother: Her son just can't handle demons and gangs without her. One time she even decided to stay invisible to protect him better.
* TheNapoleon: She has the HairTriggerTemper to match her short stature.
* NeverMessWithGranny: She may be a little old lady, but she knows karate, and is quite willing to use those skills.
* NoNameGiven: No one calls her anything other than "Tohru's mother".
* PintsizedPowerhouse: She's only a little taller than Jade, but deadlier than Jackie.
* PrimAndProperBun: She's gives off the air of being traditional and she has certain [[HairTriggerTemper "authority"]] in her.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: She also rivals Uncle in abusing her old age to disregard tact.
* SitcomArchnemesis: To Uncle; martial arts, mahjong, shuffle board, treating Jackie of cobra's venom; it doesn't matter as long as one can humiliate the other.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Rivaling Uncle of course. Whenever she and Uncle are in the same room, insults and snarks are exchanged back and forth.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: She is a dead ringer for Tohru aside from being female and much smaller in size.
* VitriolicBestBuds: She spends more time with Uncle than with anyone else, even if they mostly argue.
* VolleyingInsults: She and Uncle compete diligently in the creativeness of the insults they throw at each other.

!!Miss Hartman
--> ''Mr. Chan, this is not the first time we've had a problem with Jade.''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Jeannie Elias

Jade's schoolteacher. She's annoyed by Jade's unbelievable stories of fantastic adventures.
* ADayInTheLimelight: "The Demon Beneath My Wings" is this for her because she had Hsi Wu's chi.
* BadassTeacher: She defended Jade from Drago. Although of course, this is while she was temporarily transformed by the chi of [[WingedHumanoid Hsi Wu the Sky Demon]].
* ChildHater: Jade believes that Hartman hates kids, although this is subverted. In fact, Hartman states that she's a teacher because she ''likes'' children.
* DeadpanSnarker: She conveys her skepticism of Jade's stories in dry disbelief.
* FieryRedhead: Averted. She can be strict while disciplining, but hardly aggressive about it.
* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: She's never seen without her purple jacket.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Although Hartman seems like a hard-ass, she actually cares about Jade and her other students.
* PreMortemOneLiner: She delivers a non-lethal version of this trope to Drago before pushing him to the ocean.
* SkepticNoLonger: Subverted. After turning into a demon for a day, she tries to remember that it happened, only for Jackie to convince her that it was [[AllJustADream all just a hallucination]].
* SternTeacher: It's just that she has little patience for Jade's disruptive shenanigans.


-->'''Voiced by:''' Jeannie Elias

A boy who teases Jade for her crazy-sounding stories.
* DeadpanSnarker: He conveys his skepticism of Jade's stories with added ridicule.
* {{Jerkass}}: It's one thing that he doesn't believe Jade's stories ([[TheMasquerade for obvious reasons]]), though he's not nice about it.
* LaserGuidedKarma: After witnessing the incident described below in SkepticNoLonger, Jade uses this opportunity to humiliate him in class.
%%* NerdGlasses
* NiceHat: He's never shown without his yellow cap.
* PintSizedKid: Like all the other recurring kids, he gets nowhere taller.
* SkepticNoLonger: He realizes that [[CassandraTruth Jade was telling the truth]] after watching Daolon Wong's Dark Chi Warriors trying to steal the Talisman Animals.

!!Jackie Chan's Yin and Yang
[[caption-width-right:350:[[SarcasmMode Need to guess who's who?]]]]

During the show, Jackie is affected thrice by the [[LiteralSplitPersonality Tiger Talisman]]. [[JekyllAndHyde He's split into his Yin and Yang sides]]. Yin Jackie is called "Pussycat" and Yang Jackie is called "Tiger".
* BackToBackBadasses: When Tiger and Pussycat set aside their differences, they are a pretty efficient fighting force.
--> '''Tiger''': Okey bro, let's show this troll what ''two'' Jackies can do!
* {{Badass}}es: They're two halves of Jackie Chan after all.
* BashBrothers: They sometimes call each other brothers and they work well together.
* MultipleHeadCase: In their final appearance, they end up in this position, because their split wasn't allowed to finish. It's eventually fixed.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Pussycat is the Sensitive Guy to Tiger's Manly Man. This is in line with Taoism: [[FridgeBrilliance Yin represents femininity and Yang represents masculinity]], so it makes sense for Yin Jackie to be more considerate of others and Yang Jackie to be more aggressive.

!!!Yin/Light Jackie (Pussycat)
[[caption-width-right:320:[[CatchPhrase "Fighting is not nice!"]]]]

-->'''Voiced by:''' James Sie

* ApologizesALot: Pussycat is this even more than normal Jackie. It extends to [[ApologeticAttacker fighting]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He is even more hard to anger than normal Jackie, but it doesn't mean that he's completely helpless.
* ButtMonkey: Pussycat seems to have most of Jackie's hapless tendencies.
* CowardlyLion: Usually Pussycat tries to run from danger, but when the push comes to shove, he will fight back.
* FragileFlower: In his debut episode, he bursts into tears after accidentally stepping on a bug. Later, he starts crying for the animals whose leather has been used on a car's seats.
* GoodIsImpotent: He initially appears as unwilling to take active because he's too nice to hurt anyone, even bad guys. [[SubvertedTrope However, allowing someone to be hurt by inactive provokes him into action]] and proves he is just as skilled as Yang Jackie.
* MartialPacifist: He is even more averse to violence than normal Jackie, and he gets angry only rarely. It doesn't mean that he can't defend himself.
* NiceGuy: Exaggerated to the point of being an ExtremeDoormat due to the nature of Yin.
* WouldntHurtAChild: He stops Tiger from hurting Jade.
--> "It's not nice to drop-kick little girls!"

!!!Yang/Dark Jackie (Tiger)

-->'''Voiced by:''' James Sie

* AntiHero: He is Jackie's (mostly) repressed selfish side, but still has some baseline heroism.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Unlike normal Jackie, Tiger is willing to use all his skills in martial arts for whatever reason.
* BadassLongcoat: In his debut episode, he steals Chow's jacket, and looks much cooler in it than Chow ever did.
* BigBrotherBully: He and Pussycat sometimes call each other brothers and he is not shy about picking on him.
* BloodKnight: He enjoys fighting; a significant contrast with Jackie's full personality.
* CallingTheOldManOut: He does this to Uncle in each of his appearances.
** In his debut episode, after he's smacked by Uncle, he returns the favor. Then he crosses his arms and smiles smugly, as if to say "You have no idea how long I've been wanting to do that."
** In "The Return of the Pussycat", he tells Uncle not to start a lecture.
** In "Viva Las Jackies", when Uncle yells over the phone at Tiger and Pussycat (not knowing that Jackie has been split) for leaving him in a hotel that couldn't provide him eel saliva, Tiger responds spitefully:
--> "Pull your tongue out of your mouth and wring out the spit."
* CoolShades: In his debut episode, he steals Chow's sunglasses, and looks much cooler with them than Chow ever did.
* ADarkerMe: Tiger is this, rather than a full on EvilTwin because he represents the arrogance and selfishness that complete Jackie manages.
* DeadpanSnarker: He snarks quite a bit and throws around insults.
--> '''Pussycat''' (while looking for the Noble Tiger): I do not see the tiger. Maybe we should split up? (He has just forgotten [[MultipleHeadCase their current situation]].)
--> '''Tiger''': (glares at Pussycat) So I got all the brains?
* EvilIsCool: Tiger invokes this trope when he steals Jade's place as the main character in the play about [[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde]] during his second appearance. He clearly enjoys playing Mr. Hyde. [[invoked]]
--> "This potion is wonderful! Evil Hyde is much cooler than old goody-goody Jekyll! [[EvilLaugh Hahahahahahahaa!]]"
* FearlessFool: He doesn't fear anyone or anything.
* HatesBeingTouched: He repeatedly tells off people who touch him.
--> [[CatchPhrase "Don't touch me."]]
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Tiger can easily be convinced to fight alongside either the heroes or villains at the drop of a hat.
* IntimidationDemonstration: He has a habit of loudly clicking his neck on both sides before starting a fight.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Even if he's Jackie's most aggressive traits, he's still Jackie fundamentally.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: He has the same dose of skills as normal Jackie, but he's much more willing to hurt his opponents. For example, he utilizes a DivingKick much more than normal Jackie, and he seems to be more impervious to the injuries normal Jackie tends to be distracted with.
* UnscrupulousHero: Tiger is selfish, arrogant, and easy to set off, but ultimately heroic.
* WouldHurtAChild: Tiger was willing to kick Jade when angered.

!!Xu Lin
[[caption-width-right:320:[[TheWoobie She sure needs a hug]].]]
[[caption-width-right:320:Then [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting again]], [[OhCrap maybe not]].]]

-->'''Voiced by:''' Ashlie Chan

A little Chinese girl who was exploring a bamboo forest one evening. She ended up in the Lotus Temple and has been its guardian ever since. She turns into a savage beast whenever someone intrudes into the temple. Five years afterwards, Jackie and Jade seek out the Lotus Temple, along with the villainous Old Monk. After the conflict, Xu Lin is freed from the temple and the Old Monk is forced to take her place.
* ClosedCircle: As the temple's guardian, she's unable to exit it. But she eventually escapes by [[LoopholeAbuse wearing a suit of armor]], as objects can leave the temple.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: She'd love nothing more than to return to her parents and leave the magic world entirely behind.
* AnIcePerson: Her monster form resembles an Yeti, and it can shoot ice-rays from it's mouth.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: She turns into a monster whenever someone intrudes the temple. She has no control over it.
* MustBeInvited: Jade figures out that [[LoopholeAbuse if Xu Lin invites a person to the temple, they are not intruding]]. And if there is an intruder at the same time, she attacks the intruder instead of the invited.
* NiceGirl: She's quite polite, reserved and concerned for others.
* PainfulTransformation: Becoming the Yeti is a painful affair.

* TragicMonster: She's not evil but a prisoner of the temple compelled to attack whoever gets inside the temple.

An order of Buddhist monks who reside in a monastery situated in the mountains of Bhutan.
* {{Actual Pacifist}}s: They never participate in any fights themselves.
* TheChosenOne: The Ben Shui Order has a vague prophecy about one of these saving the world. The Chosen One is also required to be completely pacifistic, although a Champion is allowed to fight for and protect them.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Robbie Rist

A geeky teen boy who is a friend of Jade. He appears in "Antler Action", where he temporarily absorbed the chi of [[DishingOutDirt Dai Gui the Earth Demon]], which inspired him to become a superhero.
* BodyHorror: He absorbs the chi of the Demon Sorcerer Dai Gui, which slowly transforms him into an [[DishingOutDirt Earth Demon]], until the chi is eventually removed.
* DestructiveSaviour: He ends up wrecking the comic convention while fighting Drago and the Ice Gang.
