    The Xiaolin Dragons 

Omi

"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 loveable anyway.

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

Raimundo Pedrosa

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

"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.

Clay Bailey

"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.

Ping Pong

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.

    Xiaolin Monks 

Master Fung

"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

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

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.

Master Monk Guan

"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

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.

Wuya

"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.

Chase Young

"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.

Hannibal Roy Bean

"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.

Shadow

Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

Chase Young's newest disciple, first appearing in Xiaolin Chronicles. She helps Chase in his plot to destroy the Xiaolin Temple by infiltrating as a potential apprentice named Willow.

    Recurring Characters 

Jermaine

Voiced by: Lee Thompson Young

An African-American boy from New York City who helped Omi in "My Homey Omi".—-

Katnappe

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.

Tubbimura

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

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.
  • The Dreaded
  • 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

Voiced by: Tom Kenny

An extremely muscular vendor from Russia who infiltrates the Xiaolin Temple.

Pandabubba

A ruthless Hong Kong kingpin.

Cyclops

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 Sapphire Dragon

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.
  • Technicolor Fire: Sapphire blue.
  • 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.
  • Enemy Mime
  • Everyone Hates Mimes: Both sides find him deeply irritating.
  • 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

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.
  • Evil Laugh: A yodeling version!
  • An Ice Person: He's a pile of snow brought to life by the Heart of Jong.
  • Snowlems: Version III
  • Third-Person Person
  • 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.

Klofange

Voiced by: Tom Kenny

A hunter who was seeking the evil mermaid Dyris.

Megan

  • Cute, but Cacophonic: She can be very shrill when she wants to be.
  • Cheerful Child
  • Fluffy Tamer: She has no qualms about making killer robots and mythical reptiles her playmates. Probably doesn't know any better.
