** BadassFamily: While Tohru isn't related to the others, he is still considered one of them.
** BadassNormal: None of them were born with any special powers, although they do use magic objects.
*** EmpoweredBadassNormal: They've all been temporarily transformed into something not quite human at least once.

** 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]].

* 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''.''

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.
----
* {{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 ''actual'' job.
* AfraidOfNeedles
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Throughout the series, he continues questioning the believability of new supernatural threats/phenomenons and Uncle's expositions.
* {{Badass}}: This is Jackie Chan we're talking about.
** BadassBookworm: He's not as knowledgeable about arcane magic like his Uncle is, though of course he's still an educated archaeologist.
** BadassNormal: He usually prefers using martial arts instead of magic to fight thugs, wizards, and demons.
*** EmpoweredBadassNormal: In one episode, he absorbed the chi of [[DishingOutDirt Dai Gui the Earth Demon]].
** CulturedBadass: Knows a thing or two about antiques and yoga.
** MinoredInAsskicking: See BadassBookworm above.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's generally pacifistic, however if you ''do'' press his BerserkButton by hurting his friends or family then he will ''own'' you.
* ButtMonkey: He may be the hero, but he suffers a lot of comical injuries.
* 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!]]"
** "You gotta be kidding me."
** "That's crazy, Jade. ''You're'' crazy!"
** "Jade, stay here." (Right before Jade does the opposite.)
** "JADE! You're supposed to be _______!" (Whenever Jade comes along uninvited.)
** "Jade, how do you do that?" / "How does she do that?" (Same as above.)
** "[[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}}."
** "I am not a secret agent, I am an archaeologist."
* CoolUncle: Jade quickly believes that her martial artist AdventurerArchaeologist uncle is the coolest guy around.
* 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.]]
* DisappearedDad / MissingMom: 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.
* DrunkenMaster: Twice. The first one occurs after Jackie gets [[FridgeLogic bitten by a cobra]]. The second one occurs when he suffers from decompression sickness.
* FirstNameBasis: Friends and family call him "Jackie".
* GoodIsNotSoft: He's a nice guy, however when push comes to shove, he will fight back.
* TheHero: The main heroic good guy.
* HeroStoleMyBike: Everyone gets their turn, but Jackie is the most frequent perpetrator. See ApologizesALot.
* HumbleHero: In contrast to his glory- and adventure-seeking niece, Jade.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Didn't want to get involved with Section 13, demons, or anything supernatural [[ReluctantHero 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 / ImprobableWeaponUser: 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 only call him "Chan".
* TheLeader: There's a reason its called the ''J'' Team. Defied as he doesn't want to be a leader, but the other members like him so much.
* MartialPacifist: He would rather talk than fight.
* NiceGuy: Seriously, even his yang side turned out to be a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* OnlySaneMan: Gets stuck in this role more than a few times because his team mates all have quirks.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Jade's red; calm, pacifistic, and even wears a blue shirt.
* WeirdnessMagnet: It seems no matter what he does, he always ends up accidentally uncovering the plots of ancient spirits and demons.
* 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
[[quoteright:201:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jade_9393ksd_1060.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:201:Helping Jackie, whether he wants it or not.]]
-->''[[StealthHiBye Hi, Jackie!]]''

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 the final season, she disbelieves in evil mirror spirits and haunting ghosts. In "A Jolly J-Team Xmas" she also had [[SantasExistenceClause stopped believing that Santa Claus exists]]. In all those instances, she's proven wrong.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: In one episode.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable / LittleMissBadass: 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.
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: She often overestimates her physical prowess (she's only a 3-foot-tall kid after all), and her recklessness often causes a lot of problems, but she has also solved just as many problems.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: She's been empowered and transformed a few times:
*** Once wore the Mark of Tarakudo tattoo, which turned her into the Queen of the Shadowkhan.
*** Once got scratched by a cursed cat idol, which turned her into a CatGirl with feline agility and senses.
*** Once absorbed all twelve of the Talisman powers.
*** Once absorbed the chi of [[BlowYouAway Xiao Fung the Wind Demon]].
** FutureBadass / TookALevelInBadass: Adult Jade became the leader of Section 13... at least until Future Captain Black got back and she was demoted.
** UnderestimatingBadassery: Is more often than not underestimated by everyone due to her age.
* BigEater: Has a BIG appetite, once eating 5 hot dogs and drinking 5 sodas in one ball game. And yet still stays thin.
* BlowingARaspberry: Does this sometimes.
* BookDumb: Not very good in school, but very good at breaking into underground military installations.
* BrattyHalfPint: But she's not the worst possible example of this trope.
* 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:
** "[[BattleCry HIIIYAAAH!]]"
** "Jackieeee!"
** "[[StealthHiBye Hi Jackie!]]" (After popping out of nowhere.)
** "Go Jackie!"
** "Duh!"
** "Awwww!" (Whenever Jackie refuses her requests.)
** "Tch!" (Disregarding whatever rule or order she's been told.)
* [[spoiler:TheChosenOne: At the end of "The Chosen One", it's implied that she might be the Ben Shui Order's Chosen One.]]
* CombatPragmatist: She's the only one of the heroes who thinks to use the various magical artifacts/weapons they've acquired (the Talismans usually). [[spoiler:She also once killed Shendu when he reverted into a mortal statue form.]]
* CuteBruiser: Even without power-ups, she's abnormally strong for her size and nobody doubts her cuteness.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Becomes a barefooter when she is the Queen of the Shadowkhan.
* EvilFeelsGood: Was unsettlingly eager to be rebranded with the Mark of Tarakudo again, and was disappointed when Jackie vetoed it.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: It becomes useful during the hunt for the Talisman-empowered animals.
** HeroesLoveDogs: She adopts 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.
* {{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.
* GuileHeroine: She takes after her uncle in this regard. "Greatest victory is the battle not fought" and all that.
* HeroHarassesHelpers: She even provides the page picture.
-->'''Jackie:''' "She never listens."
* 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 yin-yang necklaces and everything; young and old, big and small etc.
* 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.
* TheLancer: More aggressive than Jackie, more interested in the supernatural, and constantly subverting his orders.
* 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.
* 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.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: She has her share of moments like unwittingly solving Valmont's riddle ("Tohru Who") and kicking Ratso to an oni mask ("Samurai Ratso").
-->"''Oopsie.''"
* OffModel: In ''Queen of the Shadowkhan'', Jade was drawn with pale skin, then a closeup of her ankle showed her skin with its normal color, and then she was shown with pale skin again.
* OneOfTheBoys: She doesn't get a female role model until [[ClassyCatBurglar Viper]].
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Her flying kick can knock down a full grown thug.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Subverted. Her luggage and nightgown are pink, but she is not feminine.
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: Loves to give these.
* ProhibitedHeroSavesTheDay: More often than not.
* 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!"
* SnoopingLittleKid
* SlasherSmile: When Drew teases her one too many times after she tattoos herself with 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.
* StealthHiBye: Bordering on OffscreenTeleportation. She's done it inside an {{MIB}} base and all the way to the ''Moon''.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: Being branded with the 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}}: Crude demeanor, boyish clothes, skateboard, etc. The only time we see her wearing 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.
* 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?"

!!Uncle Chan
[[quoteright:256:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Uncle_Magic_8247.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:256: That lizard is a deadly weapon. Seriously.]]
-->''Who else wants a piece of Uncle?''

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 treating 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 stuff. But he initially refused to believe that Tarakudo is Japanese or that Oni exist. He also dismissed the importance of [[CardsOfPower Hana Fuda Cards]].
* 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]]
* {{Badass}}
** 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.
*** EmpoweredBadassNormal: One time, a [[ChineseVampire Jiangshi]] drained Uncle's chi, turning him into an evil vampire minion with {{super strength}}.
** 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.
* BirthdayHater: "When I am another year ''younger'', I will celebrate."
* CatchPhrase: He has many phrases, including:
** "Jackieeee!"
** "[[AndAnotherThing One more thing!]]"
** "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.
* CoolOldGuy: Both Jade and Tohru very much look up to him.
* CoolUncle
* 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: He hits Jackie with a two-fingered strike every time his nephew does or says something wrong, and sometimes when he does something ''[[DudeWheresMyRespect right]]''.
* EccentricMentor: Tohru's magic mentor, and has more than a few quirks.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: He's just known as Uncle to everybody (except Mamma Tohru who calls him [[EmbarrassingNickname "Billy Goat"]]).
* GoodIsNotNice / JerkWithAHeartOfGold: 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 and whenever he says "Magic must defeat magic".
* KiAttacks: With a blowfish!
* KungFuWizard: He personally taught Jackie and Tohru kung-fu and chi-magic respectively.
* MentorArchetype: Old, wise, and takes a formal apprentice.
* NoNameGiven: Just call him "Uncle Chan".
* MagicWand: Uncle's enchanted blowfish and lizard.
* OldMaster: Who taught Jackie his martial arts and Tohru his magic?
* PufferFish: His weapon of choice to shoot chi.
* 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.
* RunningGag: Hitting Jackie in the head with a two-fingered strike every time he does or says something wrong. He did this also to Captain Black, Tohru, Jackie's Dark Side, Daolon Wong, Hsi Wu, Super Moose, and, at least twice, ''himself''.
* 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.
* TheSmartGuy: When something magical happens, he's 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: Often refers to himself as "Uncle".
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Mung beans.
* WitchDoctor: His chi spells involve ingredients like "eel saliva" and "hair of sheep".

!!Tohru
[[quoteright:196:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tohru_9934_605.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:196: Crunch.]]
-->''I hate fish.''

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.
----
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Pre-HeelFaceTurn he threw his weight around.
* {{Badass}}: He could at times he the better of Jackie in his early appearances, and after his HeelFaceTurn he also defeated the original three Dark Warriors single-handedly after Jackie struggled with them the entire episode.
** BadassNormal: Even after he learns magic, he relies much more on his natural strength and fighting spirit than it.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal:
*** Once when [[spoiler:he got tattooed with 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]].
** GeniusBruiser: After he learns magic. And even before that, he's not exactly a DumbMuscle guy.
** TookALevelInBadass: He starts out as an intimidating GiantMook. By the end of the series, he's a full chi wizard.
* 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 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, 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.)
* 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 / StoutStrength: Do you think he was born with those muscles? All that strength came from hard work.
* 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.
* 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.
* EasilyForgiven: Surprisingly, after everything he puts the Chans through during the first season (like almost slicing Jade's stomach open), he's rather quicly accepted as one of them.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Sure, Tohru's Mom wasn't even mentioned before his HeelFaceTurn but the fact that he kept his criminal life a secret from her even then shows the DontTellMama aspect of the trope.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:In "Tohru Who?", when Valmont [[LaserGuidedAmnesia erases his memories with a potion]]. Fortunately, it doesn't last.]]
* FatBastard: Before he [[HeelFaceTurn becomes a good guy]].
* GentleGiant: After his HeelFaceTurn, he is a mountain of a man and a NiceGuy.
* HeelFaceTurn: "I was told Section 13 served doughnuts on Tuesdays". Yes, Valmont made him fight a fully empowered Shendu with his bare hands ([[CurbStompBattle it ended as well as you'd expect]]), but we all know it was ''really'' the doughnuts.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With Jade being the Tiny Girl to his Huge Guy. She would often sit on his shoulder.
* 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.
* MightyGlacier: The J-Team's biggest, slowest, and strongest member.
* MommasBoy: Loves his momma and her approval means so much it crosses into WellDoneSonGuy.
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Jackie, to him, many, many times in the first season, because of his muscle and bulk.
* RedemptionPromotion: He was already intimidating as a henchman, then he had a HeelFaceTurn and learned magic.
* ReformedCriminal
* 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. Always a long, spiral staircase.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:He gets Tarakudo's mark because Jackie doesn't want Jade to be Queen of the Shadowkhan again.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: His fear of Oni.
* WouldntHitAGirl: After his HeelFaceTurn. It gives him trouble when he faces [[DarkActionGirl a female wrestler]] in one episode.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs
[[/folder]]

[[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.
*** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Except for Viper, they've all been temporarily transformed into something not quite human at least once.

[[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.''

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.]]
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBaritone: Being voiced by ClancyBrown.
** BadassBeard: His future self has grown this.
** BadassLongcoat: Always seen with a black jacket.
** BadassNormal: Like Jackie he has no powers, and like Jackie he still kicks superpowered evil butt.
*** EmpoweredBadassNormal: While wearing the Sumo Khan Oni Mask.
* BaldOfAwesome
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Normally when the Tiger Talisman splits a person into good and evil twins, the good side is usually a sickeningly good 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: Only Jackie and the Enforcers can top him here.
* CatchPhrase: "Whoa, Nellie."
* TheCaptain: Of Section 13.
* 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!
* 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.]]
* 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.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Despite Uncle's constant saying of "magic must defeat magic", Black continues to send guns and military weapons after supernatural beings, much to the former's dismay.
-->'''Uncle''': All these years, Black has learned nothing. Magic must defeat magic.
* 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
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/El_TOro_suite_6296.bmp]]
[[caption-width-right:300: He sleeps in it.]]
-->''This is no costume, Captain Black. This is a way of life.''

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.
----
* {{Badass}}
** BadassInANiceSuit: If he's not wearing his wrestling outfit, he usually wears this.
** BadassNormal: He's introduced with the [[SuperStrength Ox Talisman]], but (excluding more serious fights) never uses it after his first episode.
*** EmpoweredBadassNormal: He once had the Curse of the {{Chupacabra}}, which turned him into a goat-eating monster every night.
* BaldOfAwesome: Downplayed. Normally, his entire head is covered by his mask.
* TheBigGuy: After Tohru, he is the big and heavy hitter for the J-team.
* CatchPhrase:
** "El Toro Fuerte [[MaskedLuchador NEVER removes his mask!]]"
** "Sorry."
* TheFaceless: Subverted. Despite his catchphrase, we actually get several looks at his face throughout the series.
* GentleGiant: A really nice guy, despite the mask and muscles.
* GratuitousSpanish
* TheKlutz: He tends to accidentally injure Jackie.
--> "[[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".
* 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.
* WouldntHurtAChild: Jade [[CombatPragmatist takes advantage of this]].
* WrestlerInAllOfUs

!!Paco
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/char_6879_2928.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:210:El Toro is the greatest!]]
-->''El Toro is the greatest!''

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.
* HiddenDepths: 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. Nevertheless, it became a case of NeverLiveItDown to the fanbase.
* MyDadCanBeatUpYourDad: While it's an uncle and a personal hero involved, the argument plays out the same. Repeatedly. "Jackie!" "El Toro!" "Jackie!" "El Toro!"
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:In the Halloween episode, he puts on the Squid Khan Oni Mask, and calls himself "El Paco Diablo".]]
* TagalongKid: One more time, El Toro.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Jade. As earlier said in BirdsOfAFeather, they can go from fighting to cooperating very quickly.

!!Viper
[[quoteright:130:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Viper_J_team_5099.bmp]]
[[caption-width-right:130: EX-super thief]]
-->''Jackie! Hey, sorry about the double-cross...''

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: Super Thief that is on the 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 onwards she is an ally but not as heroic as Jackie.
* AntiVillain: During her first appearance she is Jackie's enemy.
* BadassNormal: Similar to Captain Black and El Toro, she's a non-powered martial artist that takes on demons and wizards.
* TheChick: Downplayed. 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 this, much to Jackie’s chagrin.
* DeadpanSnarker
* GenkiGirl: She acts like one in "The J-Tots" where everyone gets turned into kids.
* HeelFaceTurn: After her introduction she reformed.
* 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 / DatingCatwoman: To Jackie. [[ShipperOnDeck Jade really would love to see this happen]].
* MsFanservice: Her most common outfit is a SpyCatsuit.
* NoNameGiven: [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname "Viper" it's obviously not her real name.]]
* ReformedButRejected: She's an ''ex'' super thief but Jackie doesn't believe her. His denials do lessen over time however.
* ReformedCriminal: After she reforms, she becomes a security consultant.
* WomanInBlack: Her cat suit is black and she is an EX-super thief.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Dark Hand]]
The most recurring enemies in the series, yet also the least threatening. The Dark 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, 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: They may be gangsters, but on top of being very incompetent, they're rarely seen with any guns.
* {{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 finances]].
* 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]].

!!Valmont
[[quoteright:158:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Valmont_394d_9686.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:158:This suit costs more than your life.]]
-->''Jackie Chan. Finally, we meet. It was nice knowing you.''

The boss of the 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: [[spoiler:In his last appearance, he has became a bus driver. But he doesn't speak, nor is he involved to 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]].
** BadassInANiceSuit: Even when he's living in squalor, he still keeps that green suit.
** BadassNormal: He used the Dragon Talisman on one occasion, but otherwise he's bare handed in fights.
*** EmpoweredBadassNormal: He once got scratched by a cursed cat idol, which turned him into a Cat Man with feline agility and senses.
* ButtMonkey: Beginning in Season 2 after Shendu [[DemonicPossession possesses his body]]. It only [[HumiliationConga gets worse for him beyond there]].
* ClassyCane: He carries this with him in the first season. It has [[SwordCane an electrically charged dagger]] inside it. He uses it 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 4 he always had at least one example of this trope. The best one was when he was smart enough to ''not'' [[CarryingTheAntidote keep the antidote to cure Jackie's infliction on his person]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Quite much. He can occasionally make a masterful snark or two.
* 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: Especially during later seasons.
* 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:
** First when he wanted to exorcise Shendu out of his body.
** Second when he is turned into a kid by Daolon Wong.
** And 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.
* {{Greed}}: Shendu bought his services by promising him the lost treasure of [[UsefulNotes/QinShihuangdi Ching Xi Hung]].
* 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.
* KansasCityShuffle: After Shendu betrays him, Valmont plans to use him as a diversion for Jackie while he steals his treasure. Another one is after Shendu is killed by Jade, therefore losing his palace and treasure, Valmont finds the talismans for use in his crimes.
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Starts out as one. After the second season, he's no longer this.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When Shendu is the one in control of his body.
* RichesToRags: Starts out as a crime boss with a large sum of wealth. His disastrous partnership/servitude to Shendu eventually leads him down the path to bankruptcy.
* ASinisterClue: Valmont has demonstrated in several scenes that he is left-handed, exactly like [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII another silver-haired villain]] [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Sephiroth}} that he happens to bear a great resemblance to]].
* SpoiledBrat: Anytime he's shown as a kid, he is just as demanding and crafty as when he's an adult.
* TheStarscream: Betrays Shendu twice in Seasons 1 and 2.
* UnwittingPawn: Shendu used him from the start.
* VillainDecay: He starts out as a very menacing leader of the Dark Hand and is surprisingly able to hold his own in a fight with Jackie in "The Rock". In Season 2, he becomes more of a ButtMonkey after [[DemonicPossession Shendu's spirit enters his body]] and in the following season, Daolon Wong steals his employees and he is forced to commit petty crimes on his own. [[spoiler:By the SeriesFinale, he has a cameo appearance where it is shown that he has been reduced to being a ''bus driver''.]]
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: For someone as young as him, white hair is clearly an evil marker.

!!The Enforcers
[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/EnforcersS4_6665.jpg]]
[[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 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 politeness towards their foes. But 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.]]
* BigThinShortTrio: Ratso, Finn and Chow, respectively. Hak Foo also qualifies as Big.
* {{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.
* {{Dirty Coward}}s / {{Lovable Coward}}s: Finn, Ratso, and Chow. Though given their poor track record when it comes to combat, it may be justified. [[spoiler:In the series finale, the three decide not to join the fight against Drago and his minions, 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.
* FiveTokenBand: Finn is Irish-American, Chow is Chinese-American, Ratso may be Italian-American, and Hak Foo is Chinese. The group also originally included the Japanese-American Tohru.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble:
** The Sanguine: Of the group, Finn is the most outspoken, and the most playful in his speech.
** The Choleric: Hak Foo is short-tempered and the most focused on the goals, whatever they're his employers' or his own.
** The Melancholic: Chow seems to be the most neurotic of the Enforcers. After Hak Foo, he appears to be the most focused on the team's duties.
** The Phlegmatic: Of the group, Ratso is the most easy-going, and the most awkward.
* {{Harmless|Villain}} {{Ineffectual Sympathetic 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.
** {{Not So Harmless Villain}}s: They may never succeed as bad guys, although they have still tried to kill the heroes in combat.
* HeelFaceTurn: Played with a few times, in two episodes late into the show, once in Season 4 and once in Season 5: Finn, Ratso, and Chow give tries at being good, but this is subverted when they soon revert back to their criminal ways. [[spoiler:However in the series finale, all four Enforcers (including Hak Foo this time) are implied to have finally abandoned their life of crime.]]
* HeroWithAnFInGood: Their above mentioned attempts to [[HeelFaceTurn reform]] fail because, as Finn puts it: "We're just not very good at being good guys." Also see MinionWithAnFInEvil below.
* LaughablyEvil: In the category of {{comic relief}} villains.
* ManChild: All of them to some extent.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Though they're not very good at being bad guys either.
* MookCarryover: Every major villain has used them as henchmen.
* 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. And when they don't have any crimes to commit, they could possibly be decent men.
* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: Jackie always beats Finn, Ratso and Chow in the end, but the amount of trouble they can give him tends to vary for no noticeable reason.
* SuperpoweredMooks:
** All four as Dark Chi Warriors under Daolon Wong, they gained enhanced physical abilities and magical weapons.
** Also when they wore their Oni Masks, as Chow managed to lift Tohru with one hand and toss him aside easily.
** And the main three during their brief time serving Drago, as they 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" so they can experience lethal wounds as comedy, every single episode.

!!!Finn
An Irish-American man wearing a disco suit.
----
* CatchPhrase: "Scooore!"
* DeadpanSnarker: He often delivers snarky one-liners to allies and enemies.
* DiscoDan: Finn has a number of times where he says "Get down. Get funky. It's the '70s!" 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 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
* FanOfThePast: Finn dresses like it's still the 1970's. Presumably it's nostalgia on his part.
* FumaShuriken: As a Dark Chi Warrior, he was granted the weapon of Ren, his predecessor.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Due to being Irish-American.

!!!Ratso
A green-skinned man wearing a formal suit.
----
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Ratso's skin and hair have a greenish tint for some unexplained reason.
* BadassInANiceSuit: He's not really a badass, but he does have a nice suit.
* 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: 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.
* ManChild: More so than the other Enforcers. He collects toy action figures and likes to play baseball.
* PointlessBandAid: Wears one on his nose. His reason for this is never stated.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Curiously, Ratso's irises are red. It's never discussed, and given Ratso's incompetence, this trope is subverted/averted.

!!!Chow
A Chinese-American man who fancies sunglasses and a black jacket.
----
* BadassLongcoat: He's not really a badass, but he does have a cool jacket.
* CatchPhrase: "Sweet!"
* CoolShades: For "The J-Team", Chow's sunglasses also act as his glasses because of his [[BlindWithoutEm nearsightedness]]. 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.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: He has made a high-pitched scream at least twice.
* SunglassesAtNight: Chow is rarely seen without his glasses. He even managed to retain them after he was turned into a Dark Chi Warrior.
* TheVoiceless: For the first half of the first season, Chow had no remarkable lines. Starting from "The Jade Monkey", this trope becomes subverted.

!!!Hak Foo
A cocky martial artist who's constantly trying to prove his strength.
----
* 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 ([[BadassDecay though as time goes by]], [[VillainDecay that's really not saying much]]).
** BadassBoast: See the quote below BadassNormal.
** BadassBeard [[BeardOfEvil of Evil]] + BadassMustache
** BadassNormal: Hak Foo dismisses using the Talismans because he has all the power he needs in his mundane skills.
--> ''Horse for healing? I am not easily injured. Rooster for levitation? I already fly. Dog for immortality? There is no one who can vanquish me!''
** 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.
* BloodKnight: He rarely shies away from combat.
* 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).
* CatchPhrase: "[[CallingYourAttacks Angry crow takes flight!]]"
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Hak Foo can perform amazing feats of martial arts because he worked at it.
* DeadpanSnarker: He delivers acerb one-liners at times, both to allies and enemies.
* EliteMook: Is initially introduced as one - as a henchman far more competent than the others who is actually 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.
* EvilRedhead
* EvilerThanThou: Towards Tohru, in his first appearance. This is of course dropped after Tohru's HeelFaceTurn.
* {{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, 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.
* {{Jerkass}}: Needless to say again, but he's still cocky and arrogant.
* LargeHam: He's the biggest example in the series because of his ego, his presence, and his attack calling.
* 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!"
* 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.
* 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 overthrew them, and had them banished to another dimension called the Netherworld (and later in the case of one demon named Shendu, transformation into a stone statue). And then there's Shendu's young son Drago, though it's unknown how he fits into the timeline.
----
* AristocratsAreEvil: When they ruled as emperors.
* BadassFamily: All of them are a force to be reckoned with, even if they hate each other's guts (see below).
* BigScrewedUpFamily: [[{{Understatement}} They really don't get along well]]. 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.
* 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
* ElementalEmbodiment: 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]].
* [[EvilOverlord Evil]] [[EvilSorcerer Sorcerous]] [[SorcerousOverlord Overlords]]: They once ruled over Earth and enslaved mankind. Their goal is to reclaim that lost glory once again.
* 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.
* 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.
* SealedEvilInACan: The 8 (or 7) 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.]]

!!Shendu
[[quoteright:333:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Picture_3_sger_5179.png]]
[[caption-width-right:333:[[GeniusBruiser He can use magic, too.]]]]
-->''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'''.''

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 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.
* 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.
* 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.]]
* {{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 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'''.''
** BroughtDownToBadass: When possessing Valmont. While not a two story monster, he's still dangerous.
* BigBad: Of Season 1. 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.
* BiggerBad:
** Of a Season 4 episode and arguably 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]].
* 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.
* 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.
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially towards the Dark Hand.
* 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).
* TheDragon: Figuratively and literally to his siblings 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.
* TheDogBitesBack: Valmont and [[spoiler:Daolon Wong]] both retaliate against him for his betrayal.
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:Agrees to join the final battle against Drago for personal reasons.]]
* [[spoiler:EvenEvilHasLovedOnes / PetTheDog: 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.
* TheHeavy: Serves as to the BigBadDuumvirate of his demon siblings in Season 2.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: In season 1. Until the finale, 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]].]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Anytime he regains his true form is a cause for alarm, even when he became more comedic for most of the 2nd season. The only time this wasn't in play was when he was BackForTheFinale, and he wasn't the BigBad at that point.
* KungFuWizard: When he possesses Valmont, he shows signs of this trope.
* KryptoniteFactor: Objects forged out of good magic like the Pan'ku Box. Even as a spirit touching it hurts him, and doing so for prolonged periods of time can knock him out.
* MonsterModesty: Whenever Shendu is restored to his organic body, he wears nothing except for a pair of shorts.
* MadeOfIron / NighInvulnerable: Even without the Dog Talisman to give him CompleteImmortality, 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.
* 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 two seasons.
** In the first season's finale, he nearly succeeds in releasing his army of dragons. He defeats Jackie and almost feads 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.
* NobleDemon: More like an [[AristocratsAreEvil evil aristocrat]]. He's technically considered a "noble dragon" which is why the power of [[spoiler:combustion]] came back to him upon [[spoiler:his revival]]. And the only reason for this was because he was the ''only'' living dragon out there.
* NonActionBigBad: In most of the first season. It's justified since he was a statue.
* 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 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]].
* 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.
* 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 the Demon of Fire. Even as a statue without the Dragon Talisman, he demonstrated that he could still breathe fire.
* PowerEchoes: His voice reverberates when he's in statue form or possessing someone.
* SayMyName: "CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!"
* SealedEvilInACan: Spends much of his time either trapped in the Netherworld or turned into a statue. Occasionally freed and turned back into his normal self, intermittently throughout the series.
** [[spoiler:SealedEvilInADuel: 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]].
* StockSuperpowers: Shendu's 12 Talismans each provide one.
** 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 spirit out of their body, and enter the {{spirit world}}.
** EyeBeams: The Pig Talisman allows the user to shoot heat rays from their eyes.
** 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 stops aging and 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. 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: The Dragon Talisman shoots out fire blasts.
** SuperSpeed: The Rabbit Talisman grants super-speed, obviously.
** SuperStrength: The Ox Talisman grants super-strength, obviously.
* SummonBiggerFish: [[spoiler:The only answer to an empowered Drago is a freed Shendu.]]
* SummonMagic: The Ninja Shadowkhan appear from the shadows on his command.
* SuperPowerLottery: Since the Talismans were created after Shendu was turned to stone, then all twelve of their powers would have naturally been his, on top of his sorcery and fire breath.
* SuperStrength: Even without the Ox Talisman, Shendu is absurdly strong, being able to overpower an Ox Talisman-powered Jackie Chan.
* TakeOverTheWorld: He did so in the past, at least China.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: With Valmont in Season 2.
* TrueFinalBoss: Of season 3 after [[HijackedByGanon double-crossing Daolon Wong]].
* [[spoiler:VillainousRescue: Exploited in the finale when Uncle releases him to battle his son Drago, [[GodzillaThreshold after they had exhausted all of their other options]].]]
* 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
[[quoteright:256:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/imagesCAL4MSZF_5430.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:256: [[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.
* 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.
* 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 good 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: Dimension, rather than statue.
* TimeAbyss: It's not stated how old they are, but they are shown to have lived for thousands of years.

!!!Bai Tza
--> ''Your spells may have quelled my siblings, but I am the slippery one.''

The Water Demon.
----
* AlienHair / CthulHumanoid: She has head tentacles.
* {{Atlantis}}: She once ruled it. It's now in ruins, so she sets out to create a new underwater city.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: She realizes that it's better to run away than stay and fight the Chans.
* 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.
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Bai Tza could be called a demonic mermaid.
* 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.

!!!Dai Gui
--> ''Too many flowers. Dai Gui does not like pretty.''

The Earth Demon.
----
* TheBrute: He prefers attacking with his fists rather than with magic.
* DishingOutDirt: Obviously, Dai Gui can manipulate the earth around him.
* DumbMuscle: He comes off as the least intelligent of the Demon Sorcerers.
* ALoadOfBull: He resembles a Minotaur.
* MonsterModesty
* ThirdPersonPerson
* TunnelKing: He travels by tunneling underground.

!!!Hsi Wu
--> ''The crowd roars for me?''

The Sky Demon.
----
* 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.
* FragileSpeedster: Hsi Wu is noticeably frail - at least in comparison to his siblings - but he is a fast flyer.
* MonsterModesty
* PortalSlam: He ends up slamming into a floating rock that happened to be behind Shendu's portal.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: He disguises himself as a human boy so he can trick Jade into [[VampireInvitation 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 looks like a humanoid demon with bat-like wings.

!!!Po Kong
--> ''Enough fanfare. What's for supper?''

The Mountain Demon.
----
* 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 devoured every object in sight.
* 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.
* MightyGlacier: Due to her massive size she is slow.
* 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
--> ''I shall prove that lightning can indeed strike twice.''

The Thunder Demon.
----

* BareYourMidriff: A rare male, demon example
* PsychoElectro: He's quite aggressive.
* 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.

!!!Tso Lan
--> ''[[CatchPhrase Behold my mastery of gravity!]]''

The Moon Demon.
----
* AristocratsAreEvil: He dresses like an East Asian nobleman. And he has the classy sophistication to match.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Has a chillingly deep yet sophisticated voice.
* GravityMaster: He can manipulate gravity and levitate objects, or disrupt the Moon's orbit around Earth.
* HumanoidAbomination
* 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.
* MindOverMatter: As part of his gravity powers.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: He has four arms.
* 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. Those empowered by his demon chi get this as well.
* PowerFloats: He usually levitates.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* TheStoic: He seems more reserved compared to the other demons.

!!!Xiao Fung
--> ''Ahh, the sweet scent of freedom!''

The Wind Demon.
----
* AffablyEvil: He's more well-spoken, relaxed and reasonable than his siblings.
* BlowYouAway: He can blow hurricane-level winds from his mouth.
* FrogsAndToads: He's basically a giant, purple toad.
* GladiatorGames: He seems to like these, as shown in "Demon World (Part 2)".
* 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.

!!Drago
[[quoteright:256:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/images_Drago_3_6551.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:256:[[InTheBlood Like father, like son.]]]]
-->''No prison can hold the son of Shendu!''

The main villain of Season 5. He is Shendu's son, but decides that he's better off making a name for himself, rather than just be just a supporting player to his father.
----
* ArcVillain: Of Season 5. There are more powerful villains in his older relatives.
* AllYourPowersCombined: Getting all the demon chis gives him the powers of all the eight demons.
* AvengingTheVillain: At first, but he abandons his father to get the demon chis of his aunts and uncles.
* {{Badass}}: Besides his demonic dragon powers, Drago also knows martial arts.
* 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.
* BigBad: Of Season 5. He's trying to become better then his father, and goes off on his own spree of evil.
* {{Jerkass}}: As stated by Jade, when the two negotiate a ransom in the series finale:
--> '''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!]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Especially towards his minions.
* 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 didn't take it well.
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel: After getting all of the demon chis, he transforms into a greater and more evil-looking form.]]
* {{Our Demons| Are Different}} [[OurDragonsAreDifferent and Dragons Are Different]]: 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 Demon Sorceror 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.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears at Season 5's opening.
* PungeonMaster: "ANYONE UP FOR SOME ''FLAME''-INCO DANCING?"
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan / SealedEvilInADuel: In the series finale, he's imprisoned with his [[EvilVersusEvil also evil]] father Shendu, leaving them to quarrel.]]
* SurroundedByIdiots: The only villain to fire Ratso, Finn and Chow after they failed him the first time. Then it's taken UpToEleven when he's looking for new henchmen, and before getting MC Cobra and his gang, he finds the possible replacements to be '''EVEN WORSE''' than the enforcers.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Never gets his dad's respect, but then again, his dad ''is'' an evil demon dragon.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dark Chi Forces]]
!!Daolon Wong
[[quoteright:168:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/imagesCAP2X6SC_4465.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:168:Like Uncle, but evil.]]
--> ''Ah, darkness shall begin it's reign.''

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. 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]].
* 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 Talisman powers.
* BeardOfEvil: He has a white goatee.
* BlackMagic: You don't see Uncle enslaving people to be his Dark Chi Warriors.
* 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: Possibly the biggest example in the show. The only goal that Wong's made clear is that he wants to spread evil.
* DarkIsEvil: He's proud to declare his membership to the Forces of Darkness.
* [[spoiler:{{Depowered}}: In the 3rd arc's end, Uncle takes away all of Wong's magical powers.]]
* EvilAlbino: No one else 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: He often does this.
* 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.
* EvilerThanThou: He ends up on the "thou" end against [[spoiler:Shendu]].
* 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.
* [[spoiler:HijackedByGanon: 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.]]
* 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.
* OldMaster: Uncle often vouches for Wong's expertise. He 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]].
* SmugSnake: He's utterly convinced of his ingenuity, yet rarely succeeds.
* SquishyWizard: Physically the least fit sorcerer out of the main villains in ''JCA''.
* TooDumbToLive: The only one who was surprised that [[spoiler:Shendu betrayed him]] was Wong himself.
* [[spoiler:WhatHappenedToTheMouse: 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 You Killed My Master]]: 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 he killed him.

!!Dark Chi Warriors
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.
----
* DeathIsCheap / TheyKilledKenny: Any time they are seriously or fatally injured, they "poof" into clouds of smoke, and 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.
* 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.
* ReplacementMooks: After Uncle traps 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. 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]].
* SuperpoweredMooks: They're faster and stronger than humans, have telekinetic control over their weapons, and have resurrective immortality.
* TheVoiceless: The original Warriors were completely mute. However, the Enforcers are still just as talkative after their transformations.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Oni and Shadowkhan]]
The [[{{Youkai}} Oni]] are hideous horned demons from Japanese folklore. 10 of them (led by Tarakudo) commanded an army of Shadowkhan (demonic shadow warriors).
----
* BadassArmy: The Oni and Shadowkhan could possibly engulf the entire world in darkness (figuratively and [[TheNightThatNeverEnds literally]]).
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: Uncle, a Chinese wizard, doesn't understand the Japanese lore about Oni and Shadowkhan very well, so he needs Tohru's help to defeat them.
* {{Youkai}}: The Oni are fearsome ogre-like demons from Japanese mythology. But the Shadowkhan on the other hand were created for the show.

!!Tarakudo
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/imagesCA8D7TLU_542.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:144: This face will stare at you from the SHADOWS!]]
-->''I am the one and only King of the Shadowkhan!''

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".
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBeard [[BeardOfEvil of Evil]] + BadassMustache
** BadassGrandpa: He is an ancient and immortal demon after all.
** 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.]]
* 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.
* [[spoiler:BattleStrip: When he regains his body, he prepares for battle... by ripping off his shirt.]]
* BigBad: Of Season 4, being the leader of the Oni Masks and behind the Shadowkhan.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Of all the main antagonists, Tarakudo is probably the wisest and the most sensible.
* DeadpanSnarker: It is possibly a requirement when dealing with the Enforcers.
* [[spoiler:EarlyBirdCameo: 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.
* [[spoiler:EvilWearsBlack: When he regains his physical body, he appears in a black gi with red patterns.]]
* FlyingFace / OracularHead: 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]].]]
* 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.
* 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.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Once all nine demon generals are released, 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.
* 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.]]
* [[spoiler:ShirtlessScene: After the above mentioned BattleStrip, he spends his final screentime shirtless.]]
* [[spoiler:SingleStrokeBattle: 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.]]
* TimeAbyss: Like the Demon Sorcerers, Tarakudo is ancient. But his 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 Tarakudo might be even older than them.
* WeCanRuleTogether: At least twice, Tarakudo asks Jade if she's going to reclaim her title as the Queen of the Shadowkhan.
* WeaksauceWeakness: As an Oni, Tarakudo's eyes are very sensitive to onions, and having it thrown in his face will make him retreat.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Onions?]]: 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
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.
----
* 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 [[MaskOfPower of Power]]: 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.
* {{Four Star Badass}}es
* 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.]]
* 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.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Onions can normally hurt them, but if an Oni Mask is attached to a human host, this is subverted.

!!!Ikazuki
-->''[[LargeHam Ikazuki lives]]. [[KneelBeforeZod Bow before my mighty form]] and - [[EpicFail Where is my mighty form]]?''

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, the blue/samurai Oni, 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]].]]
* 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.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards Tarakudo.

!!The Shadowkhan
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2012-03-21_at_1_40_45_pm_8608.png]]
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. Notably 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.
* EliteMooks: They are far more skilled and deadly than The Enforcers.
* EvilWearsBlack: They wear black clothes (or black skin).
* FacelessMooks: 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.
* 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.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: They come in many different shapes and sizes.
* 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.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Like the Demon Sorcerers, Shadowkhan all have glowing red eyes of some sort, except for the eyeless Leech Khan.
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan / SealedArmyInACan: All the Shadowkhan are banished 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.
----
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Whatever it's five or tens of them, they would take the same amount of effort to dispatch.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Subverted. 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: 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.
* 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 jump around, use martial arts, and throw shuriken.

!!!Razor Khan
These Shadowkhan attack with sharp blade-like claws.
----
* AbsurdlySharpBlade
* AudibleSharpness
* KnifeNut: They have Freddy Krueger-like knife-gloved hands.

!!!Bat Khan
Flying Shadowkhan.
----
* AirborneMook
* EnergyBall: They can create these from shadow energy.
* WingedHumanoid

!!!Sumo Khan
Large and strong Shadowkhan.
----
* BossInMookClothing: They're abnormally strong, and completely immune to normal attacks. The only way to defeat them is with the Talismans.
* GiantMook: The largest type of Shadowkhan, after a fully grown Leech Khan.
* MightyGlacier: As stated above, they're strong and resilient. But they move slowly, and only by traveling through shadows they can move quickly.
* SuperStrength: The Ox Talisman is needed to match them.

!!!Samurai Khan
Ikazuki's henchmen, who are ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
----
* EverythingsBetterWithSamurai: Or worse.
* 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
* KatanasAreJustBetter / BlackSwordsAreBetter

!!!Squid Khan
Slimy tentacled monsters who can "stretch like taffy".
----
* CombatTentacles: Naturally.
* 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

!!!Crab Khan
They have large crab-like pincers. They were temporarily split in half, because their Oni Mask was also split in half.
----
* 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.
* LightningBruiser: When they are whole, they come off as strong, fast and durable.

!!!Leech Khan
They start out very small and pathetic, but they grow larger every time they eat a human show (which incapacitates the victim).
----
* AdorableEvilMinions: [[KillerRabbit At first]].
* CastsNoShadow: When they have eaten a person's shadow, the victim literally casts no shadow, as seen with Tohru and Chow.
* 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.

!!!Mantis Khan
Four-legged creatures with blade-like arms.
----
* FourLeggedInsect
* SlayingMantis
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Ice Gang]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/icegang_5452.jpg]]
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
* {{Badass}}es: They still bumble around quite a bit, however:
** {{Badass Normal}}s: They have proven to be more of a match for Jackie than the Enforcers (excluding Hak Foo) ever were.
*** {{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).
** [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Crouching Morons, Hidden Badasses]]: All three, but mainly Ice.
* BastardUnderstudy: All three to Drago, when they think they had the upper hand.
* DeceptiveDisciple: They were taught martial arts by [[WarriorMonk warrior monks]], but refused to follow the way of peace.
* EasilyForgiven: After their betrayal, their attempt to regain the empowered Drago's favor is eventually accepted.
* EvilerThanThou: Towards Finn, Ratso, and Chow. They are just as greedy as them, but more arrogant, violent, competent, and treacherous. It's no wonder that the Ice Gang replaced the Enforcers as Drago's henchmen.
* GeniusBruiser: Cobra and Fist managed to build a submarine out of broken cars in their junkyard hideout. It's possible that they 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.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: They obtain it at Season 5.
* ReplacementMooks: They take the Enforcers' place as the henchmen of the ongoing season.

Ice's right-hand man.
----
* BlowYouAway: After Drago gives him the chi of Xiao Fung the Wind Demon.
* JiveTurkey / TotallyRadical: He speaks with a lot of cliched slang.
* SuperSpeed: MC Cobra gets this power from Drago.

!!DJ Fist
The silent strongman of the group.
----

* ShockAndAwe: After Drago gives him the chi of Tchang Zu the Thunder Demon.
* SuperStrength: DJ Fist gets this power from Drago.
* TheVoiceless: Lampshaded by Jackie in the GrandFinale.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Minor Villains]]
Villains who only appear in one, two, or three episodes.

!!El Chupacabra
A demonic beast that was attacking livestock in Mexico. It scratches El Toro during a fight, cursing him to become one himself.
----
* [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie And Then El Toro Was A Chupacabra]]: El Toro falls victim to its curse, and transforms every night until he's cured.
* {{Chupacabra}}: Obviously.
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: Much like a werewolf, the chupacabra's bite or scratch can turn a human into another chupacabra.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Both the first chupacabra and transformed El Toro have fully red eyes.
* 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.

!!"Origami" Kasahara
A Japanese burglar based in Paris, France who has the ability to turn into paper and fold up like an origami sculpture. He uses his powers to rob East Asian art from the Louvre Museum.
----
* CallingCard: He leaves origami sculptures at crime scenes.
* [[BondJamesBond Chan, Jackie Chan]]: Jackie introduces himself to Origami this way. And Origami keeps calling him that.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: He was originally a skilled but ordinary burglar, until he touched a magic artifact that gave him the ability to turn himself into paper.
* FrameUp: He manages to paint Jackie, Jade, and Viper as offenders when the police interrupt their confrontation.
* PaperMaster: Hence his moniker of "Origami".
* PhantomThief: He has a preference for stealing Far Eastern art.
* TheQuietOne: He doesn't have many lines.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: In paper form, he can fold up into the shapes of various creatures.
* WeWillMeetAgain: In his last scene, he's in prison, creating an origami resembling Jackie and crushing it. He doesn't say anything, but he clearly vows to have revenge on Jackie. Of course, it never happens.

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

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.
----
* BadassGrandpa
* CatchPhrase: "[[HurricaneOfAphorisms Ancient wisdom]]..."
* CrypticConversation: Constantly speaks in proverbs and riddles.
* EccentricMentor: Despite being EvilAllAlong, he still classifies as this.
* EvilOldFolks
* HermitGuru
* KungFuWizard: Fares quite well against Jackie in hand-to-hand combat. Also gains magic powers after obtaining some scrolls from the Lotus Temple.
* LaserGuidedKarma: After trespassing into the Lotus Temple for his own personal gains, he fails to leave before sunrise, so he's trapped inside (and probably becomes the new guardian monster).
* LotusPosition: He always meditates like this.

!!Spring-Heeled Jack
--> ''I'm free, to be me!''

A ravenous and rhyming troll, who can leap great distances. Many years before, a wizard named Simon Magus turned him into a statue and stored him in his museum of strange creatures. 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.
* 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 constantly laughs coarsely.
* InASingleBound: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin His shoes actually have springs mounted in their heels.]]
* [[spoiler:LiteralSplitPersonality: The Tiger Talisman is used on him temporarily. Yin Jack actually protects Simone from Yang Jack, and reveals his [[WeaksauceWeakness ultimate weakness]].]]
* OurTrollsAreDifferent
* 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.
* RhymesOnADime: To the point that even other characters speak in rhyme a bit.
* SealedEvilInACan / TakenForGranite: He was turned to stone by Magus. He's released when water is dropped on him. And he's turned back to stone by [[spoiler:[[WeaksauceWeakness salt]]]].
* TheNoseKnows: He tracks down the nearest Magus descendant with his sense of smell.
--> "Magus Magus where ever you are, Spring Heel Jack will not be far!"
* WeCanRuleTogether: [[JekyllAndHyde Yang Jackie]] expresses sympathy for Jack, as [[NotSoDifferent they both want to stay free to be themselves]]. Jack proposes a partnership. Fortunately, it doesn't last for long, thanks to [[GuileHero Jade]].

!!Jiangshi
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 And Then Uncle Was A Vampire]]: 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.
* ChineseVampire: Obviously.
* 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.
* {{Flight}}: It can do this even at its weakest.
* GrowingMusclesSequence: Every time it drains chi, it grows in muscle and size.
* LightIsNotGood: Its skin is pale.
* 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.
* YouCanSeeMe: At the same time, it gains the ability to see.
* 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
--> ''Stop me if you've heard this one befooorre...''

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 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.
* AxCrazy: What his 'fun' turns into; dangerous actions that can lead to death.
* DemonicDummy: His puppet form is completely harmless, just ''don't pull his leg''.
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: In his first appearance, Jade tricks him to [[spoiler:pull puppet-Jackie's leg]].
* EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor: Sending a living puppet through a wood chipper is hilarious, right?
* EvilVersusEvil: In his final appearance, he ends up facing Daolon Wong. It doesn't end well for him.
* GreenEyedMonster / TheyStoleOurAct: He couldn't stand other people showing off better than him in talents.
* TheHyena
* LaughablyEvil: Strives to be hilarious, at least from his 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.
* ThePrankster / TheTrickster: Everything he does is motivated by his love of malicious mischief.
* PublicDomainCharacter: It's never made explicit, but he's basically Sun Wukong, the Monkey King from ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest''.
* 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.
--> ''To free me of glitches and put you in stitches, this merry ape begs: [[SchmuckBait Pull my leg.]]''

!!Bartholomew Chang
A Taiwanese businessman and criminal mastermind who has a habit of stealing objects made from jade stone. He becomes a minor recurring enemy to the J-Team.

[[folder:Other Characters]]
!!Tohru's mother
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.
----
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents
* AsianRudeness: She rivals Uncle in this regard.
* {{Badass}}: Guess where [[BadassFamily Tohru]] gets his [[{{Badass}} badassery]] from?
** BackToBackBadasses: She does this with Uncle in her debut episode.
** [[NeverMessWithGranny Badass Grandma]]: She may be a little old lady, but she seems to know karate, and is quite willing to use those skills.
** BadassNormal: Unlike Uncle, she doesn't have any magic at her disposal.
** PintsizedPowerhouse: She's only a little taller than Jade, but deadlier than Jackie.
* CoolOldLady: While she's short-tempered and antagonistic towards Uncle, she's not a woman any criminal would want to trifle with.
* DistaffCounterpart / NotSoDifferent: 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''.
* {{Jerkass}}: Mostly towards Uncle. In her debut episode, she was also very bossy to Tohru.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She still loves her son, and also cooperated with Uncle to save Tohru and Jackie.
* 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.
* TheRival / 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.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: She also rivals Uncle in this.
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: She is a dead ringer for Tohru aside from being female and much smaller in size.
* VitriolicBestBuds: She actually spends more time with Uncle than with anyone else, even if they mostly argue.
* VolleyingInsults / SnarkToSnarkCombat: Whenever she and Uncle are in the same room, insults and snarks are exchanged back and forth.

* ADayInTheLimelight: "The Demon Beneath My Wings" is this for her.
* {{Badass}}: Turns out to be one in the aforementioned episode, despite never getting in a fight before.
** BadassTeacher: She defended Jade from Drago.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: Though of course during this time, she was transformed by the chi of [[WingedHumanoid Hsi Wu the Sky Demon]].
* ChildHater / SadistTeacher: Jade believes that Hartman hates kids, although this is subverted. In fact, Hartman states that she's a teacher because she ''likes'' children.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Hartman reveals that she's actually fond of children. It's just that she has little patience for Jade's shenanigans.

!!Drew
A boy who teases Jade for her crazy-sounding stories.
----
* {{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, Jade uses this opportunity to humiliate him in class.
* 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
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".
----
* {{Badass}}es: They're still two halves of Jackie Chan after all.
** BackToBackBadasses: When Tiger and Pussycat set aside their differences, they are a pretty efficient fighting force.
* MultipleHeadCase: In their final appearance, they end up in this position, because their split wasn't allowed to be finished. It's eventually fixed.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Pussycat is the Sensitive Guy to Tiger's Manly Man. This is actually in line with Taoism: [[FridgeBrilliance Yin represents femininity and Yang represents masculinity]].

!!!Yin/Light Jackie (Pussycat)
* 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 / LovableCoward: Usually Pussycat tries to run from danger, but when the push comes to shove, he will fight back.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: See above.
* FragileFlower: In his debut episode, he bursts into tears after stepping on a bug. Later, he starts crying for the animals whose leather has been used on a car's seats.
* GoodIsImpotent / HelplessGoodSide: He comes off as this most of the time. It's ultimately subverted.
* MartialPacifist: He is even more averse to violence than normal Jackie, and he seems to get angry only rarely. It doesn't mean that he can't defend himself.
* NiceGuy: Exaggerated to the point of being an ExtremeDoormat.
* WouldntHurtAChild: He stops Tiger from hurting Jade.
--> "It's not nice to drop-kick little girls!"

!!!Yang/Dark Jackie (Tiger)
* AntiHero: He is Jackie's (mostly) repressed selfish side.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Unlike normal Jackie, Tiger is willing to use all his skills in martial arts for whatever reason.
* BloodKnight: He enjoys fighting; a significant contrast with Jackie's full personality.
* CallingTheOldManOut: 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."
** Also, 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."
* ADarkerMe: Tiger is this, rather than a full on EvilTwin.
* DeadpanSnarker: He snarks quite a bit and throws around insults.
* HatesBeingTouched: He repeatedly tells off people who touch him.
--> "Don't touch me."
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Tiger can easily be convinced to fight alongside either the heroes or villains at the drop of a hat.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: See UnscrupulousHero.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: He has exactly the same dose of skills as normal Jackie, but he's much more willing to hurt his opponents.
* UnscrupulousHero: Tiger is selfish, arrogant, and easy to set off, but ultimately heroic.
* WouldHurtAChild: Tiger was willing to hurt Jade when angered.

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

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 + BadassMustache
** BadassGrandpa

* CallingYourAttacks: When he performs scroll magic, he shouts the scroll's title.
* CassandraTruth: He refuses to believe he's a statue, until he sees a poster depicting him in his statue form.
* FishOutOfWater: A Ling dynasty warrior in modern times? You figure.
* GoodIsNotNice: While he is dedicated to keep the Talismans from evil hands, he has no qualms about causing collateral damage or (non-lethally) disposing of people who seem to threaten him.
* KungFuWizard: He easily takes down Jackie and Tohru with martial arts.
* MadeOfIron: When Tohru squashes him under a taxi, he survives uninjured.
* PaperTalisman: His magic is performed through scrolls. The ones he's shown using can be used to [[PowerFloats levitate]], petrify opponents and [[KiAttacks energy blasting]].
* PosthumousCharacter: The real Lo Pei has long been dead, but the living terracotta has his personality.
* WarriorPoet: He constantly utters nature-inspired analogies to poetically and abstractly describe or muse upon his situations.
--> "As the dandelion scatters its seeds to the four winds, so did I scatter the Talismans to the four corners of the earth."
* WouldntHurtAChild: He's briefly tricked by the Enforcers to think they are his [[PaperThinDisguise fellow Ling warriors]], until they grab Jade.
--> "A sacred warrior would never harm a child. You are impostors!"
* YouShallNotPass: He stays behind to fight the Shadowkhan, allowing Jackie and Jade to escape with the Talismans. And when they are at a safe distance, he throws the Rat Talisman to them, letting himself to become a statue again.

!!Chi Master Fong
A deceased Chinese mystic who taught Uncle magic for 15 years. Somewhere along the line, Daolon Wong [[NeverSayDie "defeated"]] him.
----
* 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 small statue of him.
* OldMaster
* 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. It should be noted that [[MeaningfulName Fong can literally mean "Wind"]] in Chinese.
* PostHumousCharacter
* SpiritAdvisor: See OurGhostsAreDifferent above.

!!Xu Lin
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.
