    The Xiaolin Dragons 

Omi

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/omi_264.jpg
"Welcome, my new and strangely attired friends!"

Voiced by: Tara Strong

The precocious Dragon of Water, Omi believes himself to be the greatest Xiaolin warrior and the leader of the team; indeed, he believes himself to be the greatest warrior on the planet, period. Socially inept and comically oblivious, Omi's flaws are many—but his youth, his deep and abiding love of his friends, and his actual combat prowess make him lovable anyway.

According to the Bird of Paradise, his finest quality is loyalty.

Raimundo Pedrosa

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/raimundo_3205.png

Voiced by: Tom Kenny (Showdown), Eric Bauza (Chronicles)

The brash and impulsive Dragon of Wind, Raimundo appears at first glance to be cocky, irresponsible, and lazy, his primary concern being his own amusement. However, beneath his sly, sarcastic exterior hides a serious young man who is fiercely loyal to both his friends and his ideals, but also extremely frustrated with his own perceived failures.

According to the Bird of Paradise, his finest quality is kindness.

Kimiko Tohomiko

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/capture0_352.png
"I am so all about absolute focus—and I never met an accessory I couldn't HANDLE!"

Voiced by: Grey DeLisle (Showdown), Jennifer Hale (Chronicles)

The warm-hearted but hot-headed Dragon of Fire, Kimiko is intelligent and independent. The daughter of a wealthy Japanese businessman, she is accustomed to getting what she wants, be it the latest fashions or the newest technology. However, she never uses that as an excuse to tread on people (not that she's never mean), and in truth, she's more interested in proving that she can hold her own as well as the boys.

According to the Bird of Paradise, her finest quality is courage.
  • Action Fashionista: She has a different outfit and hairstyle for all her missions.
  • Action Girl: Can easily keep up with rest of the Xiaolin Dragons.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Berserk Button: She can't stand Jack's flirtations and Omi's oblivious sexism.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Kimiko deeply cares for others, treats people with kindness, and tends to protect the boys, particularly Omi. That does not make her Hair-Trigger Temper any less terrifying.
  • Big Ego, Hidden Depths: As early as the third episode, it's revealed that Kimiko fears being weak or needing help and wants to prove that she can keep up with the boys.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The brunette to Katnappe's blonde and Wuya's redhead in later episodes.
  • Blush Sticker: Her cheeks always have a light pink blush.
  • Burning with Anger: Much more prone to this in Chronicles. Though even in the regular series when the boys (especially Omi or Raimundo) piss her off...
  • The Chick: The only girl in the group and the most emotional member.
  • Closer to Earth/: Generally shows a lot more common sense than the boys (mainly Omi and Raimundo).
  • Cool Big Sis: To Omi.
  • Cute Bruiser
  • Daddy's Girl: Kimiko's obviously very close to her videogame tycoon father, Toshiro Tohomiko.
  • Demon Head: Usually when she gets angry.
  • The Fashionista: She can up with the craziest of fashion trends, and she wears a new and totally unique outfit every episode (sometimes multiple outfits in a single episode).
  • Flechette Storm: The Arrow Sparrow fires flaming bolts at her enemies. Kimiko being who she is, tends to go for overkill and often rains bolt after bolt of fire arrows.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Choleric.
  • Fragile Speedster/Glass Cannon: Depending on the situation, Kimiko alternates between these.
  • Gamer Chick: She's a big fan of video games, especially the various "Goo Zombies". Unsurprising, given that her dad runs a video game company.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Normally she wears her hair in twintails.
  • Implied Love Interest: To Raimundo. She's kissed him on the cheek twice and Raimundo's confirmed to have a crush on her. Their relationship never goes beyond Ship Tease though.
  • Kick Chick
  • Missing Mom: Kimiko's mother is never seen or mentioned, so it can be assumed Toshiro's either divorced, a widower, or he and Kimiko's mother were never married.
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Playing with Fire: She's the dragon of fire.
  • Plucky Girl: As mentioned above, the Bird of Paradise says her finest quality is courage.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: She's a very attractive Japanese girl with black hair and pale skin.
  • Signature Move: Judolette Flip, Wudai Mars: Fire (Shield)
  • Skirt over Slacks: In "The Return of Pandabubba"
  • The Smart Girl: Easily the most tech-savvy of the team. She even hacks into a satellite at one point.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She's the only female member of the team. She was also the only heroine in the series until her sister was introduced in the sequel series.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Her rich upbringing has had no adverse effect on her personality.
  • Territorial Smurfette: She reacted poorly to the addition of the mermaid Dyris to the team, mainly because Dyris had no problem flirting with the boys to get them to do things for her. Then Dyris taught Kimiko the same trick and they became great friends... but it was discovered later that Dyris was actually evil and that went out the window.
    • Happens again in Chronicles, this time with the addition of Willow. And once again, the new addition is actually evil and ends up leaving so that Kimiko remains the sole female on the team.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She's as interested in fashion and clothes as she is martial arts and video games.
  • Tsundere: Type B; more often than not a sweet girl, though you wouldn't want her angry.
  • Unlimited Wardrobe: Notable since everyone else has a Limited Wardrobe. There are fewer than five outfits Kimiko wears more than once.
  • Weapon of Choice: The Arrow Sparrow

Clay Bailey

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/clay_3828.jpg
"Here you go. Think I shaved a few seconds off your record, Omi."

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett (Showdown), David Kaye (Chronicles)

The pragmatic, level-headed Dragon of Earth, Clay is undeniably the nicest of the Xiaolin warriors. Like his element, Clay is steady, strong, and straightforward. Chivalrous and shy, Clay appears to most as a Gentle Giant—just don't mess with his friends or his hat.

According to the Bird of Paradise, his finest quality is strength.

    Xiaolin Monks 

Master Fung

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/masterfung_3128.jpg
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with but a single step." "Where do you get all these, anyway?" "I have a desk calendar."

Voiced by: Rene Auberjonois (Showdown, season 1), Maurice LaMarche (Showdown, season 2+), Michael Donovan (Chronicles)

The team's Xiaolin Master.

Dojo Kanojo Cho

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dojo_4798.png
Voiced by: Wayne Knight (Showdown), Michael Donovan (Chronicles)

Guardian of the Ancient Scroll of the Shen Gong Wu and the dragon that the Xiaolin Warriors ride on.

Grand Master Dashi

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dashi_9789.png
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

The legendary Xiaolin Dragon who defeated Wuya and hid the Shen Gong Wu 1500 years ago. According to the ancient Scroll of the Shen Gong Wu, Dashi was the first and most powerful of all Xiaolin Dragons.
  • Bald of Awesome
  • Blow You Away: The only time he is seen fighting seriously, he uses this against Wuya's rock creatures, breaking them apart without touching them.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy
  • Crazy-Prepared: One interpretation of why he made all those Shen Gong Wu.
  • Eccentric Mentor: Leading to...
  • Erudite Stoner: The other interpretation.
  • Expy: Personaity-wise, Dashi's basically an adult version of Raimundo. Makes for a bit of Fridge Brilliance when Raimundo is made Shoku warrior and The Hero in "Time After Time".
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: He must have had a lot of magical skills to create the Shen Gong Wu and Wuya's puzzle box.
  • No Sell: None of Omi's attacks even make him bat an eye.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Appears once out of the puzzle box Omi was given, to turn Wuya back into a ghost.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: In his initial appearance.
  • Posthumous Character: Unlike Chase, Guan, or Wuya, Dashi never became immortal.
  • Spirit Advisor
  • Trickster Mentor: To Omi. When Omi went back in time, he challenged him to a showdown, proceeded to effortlessly outclass him and only let him win when Omi got the lesson he was trying to teach.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Despite living in ancient China, he speaks with a laid-back Californian accent.
  • World's Best Warrior: While he was alive, he was shown as being the only warrior to be able to easily outpace Wuya while she was at full strength in addition to being hailed as the Greatest Xiaolin Warrior of all time. There's a reason he's the only one who has ever held the rank of "Grand Master".

Master Monk Guan

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/guan_4961.jpg
"I wouldn't celebrate your victory just yet."

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

A legendary T'ai chi master who has traveled the world a dozen times, and has defeated many opponents using only his famous Spear of Guan.

    The Heylin 

Jack Spicer

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jackspicer_2126.png

Voiced by: Danny Cooksey (Showdown), Eric Bauza (Chronicles)

The main villain of the first season, Jack Spicer, Self Proclaimed "Evil Boy Genious (sic)", is a petulant, spoiled rich kid with a talent for building mechanical contraptions. He's dreamed of world conquest for as long as he can remember, but that might have something to do with his socialite parents busying themselves with parties instead of parenting. By the second season, it's clear that Jack just wants to be taken seriously—something easier said than done.
  • Absentee Actor: Jack every single episode except "The Return of Master Monk Guan".
  • Affably Evil
  • Ambiguously Bi: Jack flirts with girls throughout the series (Kimiko, Jessie, Katnappe etc) while developing a fanboy crush on Chase Young (complete with adoring gazes through heart-shaped eyes, repeated attempts to hug and paw at him, and whiny jealous sulks whenever Chase rejects him). But also created an army of cheerleaders robots and enjoyed kissing one. Oh, and in the evil future where he takes over? He apparently has Chase Young constantly being tied up in nothing but his underwear, with butter being slathered on his abdomen, while Wuya is suspended from a wall in a cheerleader outfit. It's evident Jack Spicer swings both ways.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Badass Normal: His surprising skill at winter sports like ice-skating and snowboarding and his fast reflexes, not to mention his flashes of brilliance. Also, there's the Bad Future where he takes over the world and defeats everyone. Yes, even Chase Young.
  • Badass on Paper: Despite being the laughing stock of the Heylin side, he still has a fairly impressive bad guy rapsheet.
  • Basement-Dweller: Operates out of his parents' basement with that often played for laughs.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Emphasis on "wannabe".
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows
  • Butt Monkey: He is such a loser that he becomes a in-universe meme. If you lose everything or suffer an Epic Fail, you have "been jacked".
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Literally, as he's building an "evil boy genius" brand.
  • Contractual Genre Blindness: Jack is more interested in being a proper villain than being a successful villain. It's so bad that everyone lampshades it.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Despite his extreme cowardice and incompetence, every now and then he manages to score a (minor) victory.
  • Curtains Match the Window: His blood-red eyes and hair.
  • Dance Battler: When the effects of the Ying or Yang Yo-Yo switch him to good Jack never fights. However he does dodge everything with ballet jumps, but they actually might be figure skating spirals.
  • Ditzy Genius: For all of his foolishness, Jack is undeniably a mechanical genius and can build everything from robots to mechas.
  • The Dragon: Is this in season 1 to Wuya. Since Wuya is stuck in ghost form, she has to depend of Jack to collect the Shen Gong Wu.
  • Evil Gloating: Jack's favorite pastime.
  • Evil Is Dumb: A lot more effective when aiding the Xiaolin monks.
  • Evil Laugh: Variations across the series, sometimes more annoying than not.
  • Evil Redhead
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: When the effects of the Ying or Yang Yo-Yo switch him to good, his hair is combed and neat, but what is more interesting is its change to a more natural shade of red (i.e., orange) rather than its usual bright, crayon-like red.
  • Extra Ore Dinary: Had they kept in the original concept of him staying good permanently, he would have become the Dragon of Metal.
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • Future Badass: In the bad future that Omi finds himself in, he learns that (a now elderly) Jack Spicer has successfully conquered the world, and he even managed to defeat and capture all the other villains and heroes.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Subverted. Most of the time he simply wears them on his forehead as part of the outfit. But he does use them properly when welding.
  • Goth: Stated to be a wannabe goth.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Jack going good happens at least once a season.
  • Helicopter Pack: One of his trademarks. It Was a Gift from his grandmother when he turned evil.
  • Hidden Depths: Good Jack has one technique, well its not even martial arts, but one move that renders even Chase Young helpless - its a loving bear hug. Chase isn't pleased, and judging from the cracking of bones, its painful, so threatens to turn Jack into a chew toy if he doesn't release him pronto.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Jack's so pathetic that it makes it really easy to feel sorry for him.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He has a surprising amount of good in him, and has been stated as being a few steps away from being wholly good.
  • Lovable Coward
  • Mecha-Mooks: The Jack-Bots and variants.
  • Messy Hair
  • Mr. Fanservice: He arguably comes off as an accidental version of this trope.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: A Beat Generation poet, to be precise.
  • Noble Demon: Hannibal Bean says he's just one step away from being fully good.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain:
    • Omi is the one who keeps him in line even as a heel, so when Omi went to the future that limit is removed and ends up in a Bad Future which Jack Spicer's goal of World Domination did come to pass and is able to even defeat all of The Heylin.
    • A minor example in Chase Lays An Egg, where despite being a bit of a loser in the first part and even bonding with Omi, he's responsible for dropping the chemical that causes Chase to lay the titular egg, and he manages to steal it from under Chase's nose, making it the first time in either show that he enrages Chase. Sure he loses in the end, but that's a decent accomplishment all things considered.
    • His best moment was in "Chameleon" where he pulled an excellent Xanatos Gambit that resulted in him stealing most of the Monks' Wu.
  • Perky Goth: He's downright chipper a lot of the time.
  • Redemption Promotion: The times when Jack fights for the side of good are definitely times when he's much more competent. Notable examples are defeating Wuya's rock monsters with his robots (when the monks could not), having the foresight to use the Reversing Mirror on Katnappe when she invaded the temple, and the Sphere of Yun to trap the Chi Creature when it attacked.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Chase's blue.
  • The Smart Guy: A perfect fit when he's a good guy.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: As a kid, he wanted Knife throwing lessons, but his mother took him for figure skating lessons, he invented a robot out of her juicer as a result. As a teen, he aims for world domination with his army of Jack Bots at his command...and yet he also uses winter sports as a Surprise Skill.
  • Villainous Crush: It's hinted that he may have a crush on Kimiko, but it's also possible that he only flirts with her to get her guard down.
  • Weapon of Choice: Among the Wu, the Monkey Staff seems to be his preference. He did keep it for himself when he traded the rest of his collection for robot parts.
  • We Want Our Jerk Back: The reaction of the Xiaolin Monks whenever he turns good via the Ying Yang World, because Good!Jack Tastes Like Diabetes so much that they like him even less than they do when he's normal.

Wuya

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wuya_9311.jpg
"There must be other competent humans in this realm I could work with..."

Voiced by: Susan Silo (Showdown), Cree Summer (Chronicles)

The true Big Bad of the first season, Wuya is a 1,500 year old Heylin witch who is more than a little irritated about being trapped as a ghost inside a puzzle boxnote  for much of that time. After Jack Spicer releases her, she guides him towards the Shen Gong Wu in an effort to regain her full power and mortal form. Ruthless and self-serving but also short-sighted, Wuya will betray anyone to achieve her goals.
  • Ambiguously Brown: In Showdown, she had tanned skin.
  • Big Bad: Of the first season.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Like the other bad guys, she makes no bones about being evil.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Wuya may not be a Physical Goddess anymore, but she makes it up with superior martial arts skills, experience, and her own wits, allowing her to defeat the monks easily in spite of her weakened state.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Betrays everybody she works with on a regular basis, repeatedly. Except Raimundo, and that does not end well for her.
  • Dark Action Girl: In her human form.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Mostly whenever she has to put up with Jack's antics.
  • Demoted to Dragon: What she becomes in Showdown when Chase Young revives her (with limited powers) at the end of season 2.
  • Evil Laugh: Mostly as a ghost.
  • Evil Sorceress
  • Elemental Powers: Wuya's main method of fighting in her human form.
  • I Gave My Word: Despite being evil, Wuya is actually quite honest, shown when she keeps her end of her deal with Raimundo and truly gives him everything he ever wanted as a reward for his service.
  • Ignored Enamored Underling: To Chase Young, briefly.
  • Irony: It's been claimed by several characters (and proven once or twice) that she is a backstabber, and not to be trusted. The irony is, the one person she never even considered betraying is the one who betrayed her, and saved the world.
  • Jerkass: She frequently berates Jack for all of his failures, though she does offer some praise on the rare occasion he gets something done right.
  • Kick Chick: While she equally uses her body as a whole, Wuya seems to prefer kicking for surprise attacks and counterattacks.
  • Kung-Fu Witch: Even after losing most of her magic powers, she can fight with martial arts.
  • Lady of Black Magic: In contrast to her ghost form she's calm and decisive as a human, and a master of Heylin magic and one of the most powerful beings in the universe.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Basically kept Jack Spicer viable as a villain. Once she ditched him, he lost nearly all his competence.
  • Physical Goddess: Her human form, when at full power. There's a very good reason Chase Young weakened her so much when he revived her.
  • Reality Warper: Her human form has near infinite magical powers and rewrote the world in an instant when revived.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: She was trapped in a puzzle box for 1,500 years until Jack Spicer freed her unwittingly.

Chase Young

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chaseyoung_2969.jpg
"I do have a... certain reputation."

Voiced by: Jason Marsden (Showdown), David Kaye (Chronicles)

The Big Bad from the second season onward, Chase Young is charismatic, intelligent, and manipulative, a much darker villain than either Jack or Wuya. 1,500 years ago, he was convinced to drink the Lao Mang Long Soup, which granted him power and immortality. As a catch, it also turned him evil and gave him the "ability" to become a draconic creature, not always by choice. Skilled in both Kung Fu and Heylin magic, Chase disdains those who would use a "crutch" like the Shen Gong Wu; that said, Chase is something of a visionary and is not without a sense of honor.
  • Badass Bookworm: Stated by Omi to be "the greatest warrior who ever lived," and doesn't use Shen Gon Wu when fighting. Only Master Monk Guan has managed to beat him one-on-one. And by Jack Spicer as the "greatest Evil Genius".
  • Big Bad: Of Season 2 and seems to be developing into this for Chronicles. He's even featured leading the charge as opposed to Jack in the original series.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Like the other bad guys, he makes no bones about being evil.
  • The Corrupter: To Omi. He spent all of season 2 trying to turn him.
  • The Comically Serious: Especially when willingly talking to his fanboy Jack, such as when he's hugged by the evil boy genius.
    Chase: Three-second rule.
  • Deal with the Devil: With Hannibal Roy Bean, though Chase ended up as the Devil in that agreement.
  • Driven by Envy: It's revealed the he's apparently jealous of Guan, who might become chosen instead of him.
  • Evil Laugh: A lot more subdued than other villains, but he does an epic one in the season 2 finale in his dragon form.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Never spelled out, but it is clear he knows some kind of Heylin magic.
  • Fallen Hero: Used to be a great Xiaolin warrior and a friend of Master Monk Guan and Dashi. An alternate universe version of him is tragically kind, patient and self sacrificing.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Hannibal Bean wanted to turn him into a villain, and he ended up making him into one that backstabbed him.
  • Invincible Villain: During the 2nd season when he took over as the Big Bad, regardless of what he did, he would defeat the Xiaolin Dragons if they tried fighting him, and almost nothing ever slowed his schemes down. Averted by the 3rd season when he does suffer defeats, as well as Chronicles where despite destroying the original Xiaolin temple in the 3-part opener, many of his plans afterwards are successfully thwarted. Ultimately, Chronicle's first season ends with Chase being completely destroyed by Tai Shui, the Cosmic Dragon, thus fully averting the trope.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Not completely uncomedic, but whenever he shows up, the plot gets far more serious. He's not as foreboding in Chronicles, but he's still taken more seriously than the other villains.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Mostly relies on his martial arts skills, but does possess some magic for his schemes, most notably turning warriors he defeats into big cats, and he seems to rely on his magic more in Chronicles.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: While not directly stated, he says that he is Omi's family in Chronicles at the end of Chase Lays an Egg.

Hannibal Roy Bean

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hannibal_bean_4919.jpg
"Aw, I almost feel pity for the po' boy. Almost."

Voiced by: Tom Kenny

Part of a Big Bad Ensemble with Chase Young in season three, Hannibal Roy Bean is an evil, living bean. An adept reader of others' motivations and emotions, Hannibal prefers to toy with people to achieve his aims. With a Southern drawl and a friendly demeanor, Hannibal's machinations seem to be building to a greater Evil Plan... not that we ever get to see it.

    Recurring Characters 

Jermaine

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jermaine_3515.jpg
Voiced by: Lee Thompson Young

An African-American boy from New York City who helped Omi in "My Homey Omi". His skills would eventually see him becoming a Xiaolin warrior for his return in "Something Jermaine".
  • Badass Normal: Doesn't have any of the elemental powers of the Xiaolin warriors, but is able to go toe-to-toe with Omi (and later the others).
  • Heel Realization: In the second episode he appears in, he is fighting Omi, but realizes that by fighting for Chase Young, he is actually fighting for the Heylin side.
  • Took a Level in Badass: His skills were refined enough to be on par with the Xiaolin warriors come "Something Jermaine". Being trained by Chase Young helped in that regard.

Katnappe

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/katnappe_5319.jpg
Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

A girl who met Jack Spicer at one of his parents' parties. After Jack failed in acquiring the Golden Tiger Claws, she joined him and Wuya on the Heylin side. She shows her affinity for cats by dressing up in a costume that consists of a form-fitting catsuit with heeled boots, a head cover, and cat ears.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: In her debut episode she takes the Golden Tiger Claws for herself rather then give them to Jack and Wuya. In a later episode, she likewise abandons Wuya when the mission became too annoying for her. Needless to say, she doesn't work well with others.
  • It's All About Me: Unlike most of the other villains, she has little to no interest in world domination. Only in the villain business for her own pleasure, she could care less about the fight between good and evil.

Tubbimura

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tubbimura_188.jpg
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche

An extremely overweight, but surprisingly agile ninja that is promised by Wuya and Jack Spicer that if he retrieves a Shen Gong Wu called the Sword of the Storm then he will be able to join the Heylin.

Mala Mala Jong

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/malamalajong_7727.jpg
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett, Maurice LaMarche (Fearsome Four)

An ancient evil demonic warrior made up of the Helmet of Jong, the Heart of Jong, the Two-Ton Tunic, Jetbootsu, Fist of Tebigong, Third-Arm Sash, Shroud of Shadows, Eye of Dashi, Logi Kite, and possibly any other Shen Gong Wu it can acquire.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Has each power of the Shen Gong Wu that makes up its form. In its initial appearence, this is limited to...
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Easily steamrolls most people it fights in it's first apperance. Subverted in the second in that while the monks still have difficulty with him and the other jongs, they aren't nearly as outmatched as they were the first time.
  • Four Is Death: The amount of Jongs it splits into, called the Fearsome Four.
  • The Juggernaut: In his first appearance alone he defeats every last experienced monk at the Xiaolin temple, Master Fung included, then easily beats Raimundo and takes the Sword of the Storm from him, and once he's led by Wuya to where the monks-in-training are, he easily takes the attacks from every Wu they use against him and eats the orb of tornami. The monks only beat him because Omi was able to rip the heart of jong out with the golden tiger claws, and had he been noticed, they would have been dead.
  • Me's a Crowd: In its second appearence, it gains enough Shen Gong Wu that with the Ring of Nine Dragons, it splits into more Jongs.

Vlad

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vlad_7222.jpg
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

An extremely muscular vendor from Russia who infiltrates the Xiaolin Temple.
  • Combat Pragmatist: When Kimiko attempts to use the Two-Ton Tunic against him, he simply lifts her out of it and takes the Wu for himself.

Pandabubba

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pandabubba_1697.jpg

A ruthless Hong Kong kingpin.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: In his second appearance.
  • Cut Lex Luthor a Check: Unlike other villains, who have grandiose schemes for world domination, Pandabubba uses Shen Gong Wu for relatively mundane, but illegal, money-making ventures, like arming his thugs with Wu to commit crimes or mind-controlling people into a workforce of slave labor.

Cyclops

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cyclopes_1320.jpg
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

An enormous, fat, red, and dim-witted giant monster. He has no depth perception, and his only good points are his immense strength and dark power eye beams.
  • The Juggernaut: In his first apperance. He easily defeats the monks up until the final showdown of the episode. In later apperances while he's still rather powerful, he's also far less impossible to defeat.

The Sapphire Dragon

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sapphiredragon_8978.jpg

A particularly dangerous Sheng Gong-Wu that, when activated, turns into an actual blue dragon that proceeds to zombify and enslave everyone it comes across, and as such is to be used only after everything else has failed.

  • Ambiguously Evil: Although it is potentially a very serious threat and definitely goes about its schemes in an intelligent manner, its not clear if the Sapphire Dragon is sentient or, really, what it even is in the first place. Its likely an evil dragon Dashi somehow imprisoned, but its not entirely clear.
  • Artifact of Doom / Godzilla Threshold: The Sapphire Dragon was made to be used as an apocalyptic last resort and is arguably the most powerful of all the Sheng Gong Wu.
  • Dreamweaver: In the episode Dream Stalker, Hannibal Roy Bean fuses it with the Shadow of Fear via the Moby Morpher and uses it to attack Raimundo in his sleep.
  • Hero Killer: Effortlessly defeats all four main characters as well as Master Wong and every other monk in the temple, though admittedly this was early on in the show. The only one who manages to defeat it is Dojo of all people, and he survived by luck as much as anything else.
  • It Can Think:
    • Although it doesn't talk at all, it manages to take over the Xiaolin temple through stealth and guile more than through brute force. For a once-inanimate object, it is quite clever.
    • In its second appearance, the Sapphire Dragon actually called a Cosmic Clash Showdown.
  • The Juggernaut: While Dojo managed to injure it with his claws, it still wiped the floor with the entire Xiaolin compound and the more people it enslaves, the more powerful it becomes, so in the long term it could become an Invincible Villain.
  • Omnicidal Maniac / Zombie Apocalypse: There is no indication that the dragon ever planned on stopping, meaning that it might have ended up turning everyone in the world into its mind-slaves.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Anyone it breathes blue-fire on turns blue and becomes a mindless puppet to the dragons' will.
  • Silent Antagonist: Beyond the sound it makes when it breathes blue-fire, it doesn't even whisper. Neither do its slaves.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Soot can harm it and its minions, and enough can return it to Wu form, hence why Dashi hid it in a volcano. Though it is implied that if it ever enslaved enough people, it might be strong enough to eventually overcome this.

    One-Episode Characters 

Le Mime

A French mime. He possesses magical powers which allow any object he mimes to manifest as a solid, but invisible construct, ranging from an imaginary lasso to an invisible box. These constructs can be altered by the imaginations of those who come in contact with them, such as the Xiaolin Dragons imagining a door to escape a box he trapped them in.

  • The Cameo: Made a brief appearance in the first part of the series finale, being enslaved by Jack Spicer.
  • Imagination-Based Superpower: When Le Mime pantomimes, what he creates becomes real, if invisible. Interestingly things he creates can be influenced by other people's imagination as well.
  • Your Mime Makes It Real: Le Mime is capable of making invisible objects by simply miming them into existence. It's shown though that these objects can actually be changed ever so slightly by others if they mime new characteristics on said objects. Such a case happened when Raimundo mimed that the perfectly solid box he and his fellow monks were in had bars.

Pandabubba's Henchmen

  • Ambiguously Gay: The henchman in the white suit. It was even planned for him to say to the other henchman how much he enjoyed flying with him in the episode, but it got the cut, due to the very obvious implications.
  • Bald of Evil: The henchman in the white suit, though it's technically a queue, so not entirely bald.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: The henchman in the white suit wears a pair of pink underwear.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: The henchman in the white suit when he's given a wedgie.
  • The Stoic: While they both usually have this vibe, the only one to retain it is the black-suited henchman.

Sibini

A malicious trickster scorpion-like creature who was sealed within the Mosaic Scale.
  • One-Winged Angel: Turns into a larger version of itself to fight Kimiko in a showdown.
  • Orifice Invasion: Enters Clay's body through the ear.
  • Puppeteer Parasite: Once inside, he takes control of the host.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Within the Mosaic Scale Shen Gong Wu. His episode has him accidentally unsealed with the Mosaic Scale being broken in half after being dropped a great height, and resealed by Kimiko using her fire power with the Eye of Dashi to weld the Shen Gong Wu together.

Dyris

Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

A beautiful mermaid who seeks to make the world underwater.

Raksha

Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche

A giant evil snowman accidentally brought to life with the Heart of Jong. He speaks with a heavy Swedish accent, and can readily change the shape of his snow body.
  • Yodel Land: Half of the time, him saying something is the stereotypical yodeling piece. The other half is him talking in an accent suitable for Yodel Land. He even wears suspenders and pants! The only thing he's missing is a Tyrolean hat, as he wears a bucket instead.

Ping Pong

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pingpong_2689.png
Voiced by: Tara Strong

Full name Boris Antonio Rolf Jean-Pierre Gaulle LeGrand IV, Ping Pong is the excitable, hyperactive Dragon of Wood, and the newest addition to the Xiaolin Temple in Xiaolin Chronicles. Originally an errand boy raised in a European monastery, he is a natural-born martial artist who greatly admires the Xiaolin Dragons, especially Omi, to whom he bears a striking resemblance.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Child Prodigy: He appears to be even younger than Omi, but is just as much an accomplished martial artist as he is, if not more so.
  • Foil: To Omi. Whereas Omi is egotistical, very easily prone to envying people, and has a lot of skill, Ping Pong is humble, wants to be like his heroes, and is still just beginning his training.
  • Funny Foreigner: He's an Asian boy who was raised in Europe. Exactly which country is not known, but he has six names that are Slavic, Italian, German, and/or French, and he's fluent in each of those languages.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: He slips into speaking full French/Spanish/German when extremely excited.
  • Green Thumb
  • Hero-Worshipper: Of all the Xiaolin Dragons, Omi is the one he looks up to the most, and constantly strives to earn his approval.
  • Identical Stranger: He's a miniature Omi with glasses.
  • Keet: His hyperactive, all-over-the-place demeanor is what earns him his name.
  • Multi-Ethnic Name: Oh yeah.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Omi names him Ping Pong so he won't have to memorize his Overly Long Name.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's only half Omi's size (and that's saying a lot, considering Omi's already one himself), yet he can fight the same enemies his fellow Dragons in-training can with ease.
  • Sailor Earth: A new character added onto an existing team with an existing theme that makes it easy to add new character into.
  • Sixth Ranger
  • Tagalong Kid: Before being added as a permanent member of the team.

  • Casting a Shadow
  • Dark Action Girl
  • Dark Is Evil
  • The Dragon: To Chase Young in Chronicles.
  • Evil Brit
  • Extreme Omnivore: Her usual diet is insects. She also destroys one of Jack's spy cameras by snatching it up with her tongue and chomping down on it, and it doesn't look like all the pieces fall to the ground.
  • I Have Many Names: She calls herself the "Mighty Shadow" without any indication that's her real name. Ping Pong calls her "La femme brune" (the dark-haired girl) and "La grand ombre" (the big shadow).
  • Light Is Not Good: While in her Willow disguise.
  • The Magnificent: The "Mighty" Shadow.
  • The Mole: As Willow.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Which is bright green for some reason.
  • The Starscream: Has some doubts on what her identity is, and begins to doubt Chase due to his increasing number of failures. The latter ultimately comes to a head in Chase Lays An Egg, where she decides to destroy the titular egg after seeing it bring out Chase's Papa Wolf tendencies. After a battle with Chase and losing a showdown against Omi for the egg, she retreats, officially defecting from Chase's side.
  • The Vamp
