open/close all folders
The Xiaolin Dragons
- "Welcome, my new and strangely attired friends!"
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: On a bad day. See "Insufferable Genius" below.
- Badass: Despite his social ineptitude and occasionally grievous mistakes, this kid can kick ass.
- Bald of Awesome
- Beware the Silly Ones
- Big Ego, Hidden Depths: Many episodes (particularly ones where the Dragons have strained relations) suggest that Omi fears being alone and believes that if he is perfect, he will be surrounded by adulating friends and admirers.
- Black Bead Eyes
- Blood Knight: When turned evil by the Ying Yo-Yo.
- Blunt Metaphors Trauma: Arguably the Trope Codifier.
- Break the Haughty: Oh so much. Season 3 is nothing but this really.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander
- Cute Bruiser
- Decoy Protagonist: Not strictly speaking; he's still going to become the Chosen One, just not the official team leader.
- Elemental Powers
- The Fighting Narcissist
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Phlegmatic.
- Friend to All Living Things: Played with. Omi wants desperately to be a Friend to All Living Things and even fits the appropriate character type for it, but animals find him (and his ego) amusing at best. All except squirrels.
- Funny Foreigner
- Graceful Loser: When Raimundo is made the leader of the Xiaolin Dragons, Omi is at first dejected, but then gives a teary-eyed smile and bows to Raimundo in acceptance.
- Heel-Face Revolving Door: Though not always of his own accord.
- Honor Before Reason: Omi is completely devoted to the way of the Xiaolin monks. This means that he often does incredibly stupid things, including playing into the villains' hands, because he gave his word as a Xiaolin warrior. Interestingly, this seldom overlaps with Chronic Hero Syndrome, as Omi's complete devotion to his duties as a monk can make him hesitant to help people not directly connected to said duties (such as with the old woman in "The Bird of Paradise").
- Innocent Bigot: To Kimiko. His sexism stems much more from his sheltered upbringing and lack of knowledge than anything else.
- Insufferable Genius: For all his bragging, Omi is indeed a talented martial artist with more training than the other monks.
- Jack of All Stats: As the most well-trained and experienced of the monks, Omi is this. However, it's made clear, even early on, that the other dragons have more raw power and potential in other areas. (Kimiko's faster and wields more firepower, Clay's more sturdy and careful and Raimundo just has more potential period).
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his ego, Omi cares a lot about his friends.
- Kid-Appeal Character
- The Lancer: At the very end of Showdown, to Raimundo. Seems to be reversed as of Chronicles.
- The Leader: At first.
- Malaproper: Case in pointOmi: Not so fast Spicer! He who is last to be laughing laughs most loudly!Raimundo: What Omi did to that sentence is what we're going to do to you!
- Meaningful Name: Though more than likely an unintentional Bilingual Bonus, Omi is the Yoruba word for "water". Considering it's a Chinese character made by a Chinese creator, it's strange he would have a Nigerian word for a name.
- Morph Weapon: The Shimo Staff.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Omi is usually responsible for a lot of the evil the Xiaolin Dragons face.
- The Noseless
- No Social Skills: Yes though the reason for that changes. Early on in the show, it was mostly because he's so isolated and rather childish and young. However, he never grows out of it and the show places the blame on his enormous ego.
- Only One Name
- Parental Abandonment: Omi was left at the temple and raised by the monks.
- Signature Move: Tsunami Strike, Tornado Strike, Wudai/Shoku Neptune: Water/Ice, Leopard Strike, and so on...
- Slasher Smile: Has one to go along with his Blood Knight behaviour when turned evil by the Ying Yo-Yo.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Oh so much. He gets a lot of Break the Haughty as a result
- Weapon of Choice: The Orb of Tornami, later replaced by the Shimo Staff.
- Why Did It Have to Be Squirrels?
- "Tsk, tsk, tsk. Should've done your homework."
- The Atoner: When he returns to the good side.
- Awesome Moment of Crowning: At the end of Showdown.
- Badass: The kid has his moments.
- Bash Brothers: With Clay.
- Big Ego, Hidden Depths: Rai becomes angry whenever he feels helpless or inadequate, as shown during the events leading to his betrayal. It's straight-up stated in "Dream Stalker" that his lazy, jerk-ish attitude results from his fear of not being good enough and letting others down.
- Big Ol' Eyebrows
- Blow You Away: His primary element is wind.
- Breakout Character
- Brilliant but Lazy: Easily the laziest of the monks, but arguably the one with the strongest element and the most potential.
- Raimundo is also fairly smart, able to figure out battle strategies and play chess if he applies himself.
- Character Development: Receives the most of this of all the monks besides Omi.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: Despite his jerkish tendencies, Raimundo is always the first to put aside the task at hand to help someone in need, regardless of personal risk. However, this seldom overlaps with Honor Before Reason, which is generally reserved for Omi.
- Cool Sword/Fighting with Chucks: Both the Sword of the Storm/Lucida and the Blade of the Nebula are swords that can manipulate wind and weather (but can't actually slice anything). The Blade of the Nebula can turn into nunchaku for greater control and versatility in wind manipulation.
- The Corruptible: In the first season. His temporary Face-Heel Turn is the main plot of the first season finale.
- Deadpan Snarker: Pretty much every word outta his mouth is a quip.
- Determinator: In the series finale, Hannibal Bean, Wuya, and Chase Young have the monks backed up against the wall, and our heroes' chance of victory is slim. But Raimundo isn't giving up yet."No! I didn't come this far to lose! We have to find a way to win. It's our destiny."
- Face Heel Revolving Door: Even more prone to revolving than Omi. He uses this to his advantage in a Batman Gambit with Master Monk Guan to cheat Hannibal Bean out of the Treasure of the Blind Swordsman by faking a Face-Heel Turn.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Sanguine.
- Green Eyes: Of the "spitfire" and the "untrustworthy" variety.
- Handsome Lech
- The Hedonist: Said to be as much on the official website, but it's mostly on the surface.
- Implied Love Interest: To Kimiko. It is never outright stated that they like each other, but they do show signs of Belligerent Sexual Tension.
- In the Hood: His clothes in season one have one, but he only uses it after his Face-Heel Turn. It is then summarily averted with his new outfit in the second season onward. Notably, the second season starts with him trying to redeem himself for his betrayal.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: The heart of gold part is made very obvious in episode 9. Omi gets separated from the rest of the Xiaolin Dragons, and when they find him again, Raimundo pulls him up and hugs him profusely while expressing his heartfelt worry and relief, complete with a parodying playing of the violin.Raimundo: "You're alive! Don't you ever scare us like that again, we were so worried and I...what? I was worried."
- The Leader: At the very end, though the second series seems to completely ignore this.
- The Lancer: At first.
- Lightning Bruiser: By the end, Raimundo outclasses Jack of All Stats Omi, in terms of firepower and speed.
- Lovable Rogue
- Miniature Senior Citizens: In the Bad Future.
- Mr. Fanservice
- My Friends... and Zoidberg: Treated like this for a while when he wasn't promoted along with the others. It's was sparked his Face-Heel Turn.
- Noble Male, Roguish Male: The roguish to Clay's noble.
- Security Blanket: "Hey, lots of guys sleep with teddy bears, all right?!"
- Signature Move: Typhoon Boom, Wudai/Shoku Star/Astral: Wind
- Smarm Brow: Rai's default expression.
- The Rival: To Omi. This mostly appears to be one-sided. Omi gets over it.
- Took a Level in Badass: His Character Development is a textbook example of this.
- Troubled, but Cute
- Weapon of Choice: The Sword of the Storms, later replaced by the Blade of the Nebula.
- "I am so all about absolute focus—and I never met an accessory I couldn't HANDLE!"
- 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 seasons.
- 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 more common sense than the boys.
- 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.
- 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.
- Girlish Pigtails: Normally she wears her hair in twintails.
- Implied Love Interest: To Raimundo. She's kissed him on the cheek twice and Raimundo has been shown to care about 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
- The Smurfette Principle: She's the only female member of the team.
- Spoiled Sweet
- 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.
- 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
- "Here you go. Think I shaved a few seconds off your record, Omi."
- Americans Are Cowboys: He's the only member of the team who's from the United States, and he's from Texas as well.
- Bash Brothers: With Raimundo.
- Battle Boomerang/Fuuma Shuriken: The Big Bang Meteorang. When in use, it becomes a Fuuma Shuriken that separates into smaller boomerangs.
- Berserk Button: Don't mess with his hat.
- Big Brother Instinct: Especially toward Omi, and also to Kimiko (he's presumably the oldest of the four monks).
- Big Eater
- The Big Guy
- Dishing Out Dirt: As the Dragon of Earth
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Melancholic.
- The Generic Guy: It's part of the reason when he tends to be Out of Focus at times, he lacks the other dragon's colorful personality and flaws so it's easy for him to just be in the bakground.
- Genius Bruiser: "Nothin' I dislike more than a smart-alec Tersiops truncatus. (Beat) Bottlenose dolphin."
- Gentle Giant: The biggest of the four, and arguably the kindest.
- Mighty Glacier/Stone Wall: Like Kimiko, Clay can switch between these, depending on the situation.
Clay: (self-consciously tipping his hat after destroying a Jack-bot by letting it ram into his chest) It's not your weight, it's... how you throw it around.
- From "The Journey of a Thousand Miles":
- Nice Guy
- Nice Hat: A cool cowboy hat that he's protective of.
- Noble Male, Roguish Male: The noble to Raimundo's roguish.
- Precision-Guided Boomerang
- Real Men Wear Pink: From "Screams of the Siren":Clay: Whoo, looky there! A triple Salchow! (beat) What? Cowboys can't like figure-skatin'?
- Rules Lawyer: It's against his moral code to fight a girl...but technically, a bear hug ain't fightin'.
- Signature Move: Seismic Kick, Wudai/Shoku Crater/Jupiter: Earth
- Simple-Minded Wisdom: He's pretty practical and when it was best shown in the episode where Le Mime first appeared.
- Stout Strength: Something of an Informed Attribute; sideways references are often made to Clay's weight, but he's designed as a Top-Heavy Guy more than anything.
- Weapon of Choice: The Third-Arm Sash, later the Big Bang Meteorang.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Especially in "Big as Texas", when his father actually appears.
- Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Early on he refuses to fight against Katnappe citing that it's wrong to hit a girl. Only wins against her after bear-hugging her to near suffocation.
- "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.
- Badass Grandpa
- Bald of Awesome
- Big Good: Shared with Master Monk Guan. As the one of the two who appears the most, as well as the mentor of the monks, Master Fung is the one most responsible for the actions of the monks.
- Cool Old Guy
- Fascinating Eyebrow
- Handicapped Badass: In one brief, but completely awesome scene where he fights Chase Young in a wheelchair and a full body cast.
- Old Master: The scene in which the monks must steal the elephant from him in "Katnappe!" is a perfect example of the trope.
- Mr. Exposition
- Parental Substitute: To Omi mostly as he raised him. Though he shown to be an encouraging mentor and father figure to the other Dragons.
- Reasonable Authority Figure
- Walking the Earth: He goes on a "long walk" after the Xiaolin Temple is destroyed at the end of Chronicles' three-part premiere.
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.
- Berserk Button: "Don't you EVER call me a gecko!"
- Big Eater
- Breath Weapon: Though he needs a little fuel for it to qualify at first, but later does so without such against Chase Young.
- Butt Monkey
- Cowardly Lion: Just watch out when he stops being a coward. Man he can turn scary!
- Lovable Coward
- Mr. Exposition
- Oh Crap!: When a game of Xiaolin soccer starts, Dojo has about three seconds to realize that he's the ball.
- Our Dragons Are Different
- Size Shifter: Moves between tiny and giant travel sized.
- Spider-Sense: A variation: He can tell when a Shen-Gong-Wu is activating and pinpoint it's location, though he often is only able to drill down to the general area rather than the specific spot.
- The Fog of Ages: He helped Dashi hide the Shen Gong Wu. But because they did it over 1'000 years ago, he no longer remembers the location of any of them.
- Treasure Chest Cavity: The Yin Yoyo was hidden in his ear.
Grand Master Dashi
- 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: Dashi is practically Raimundo but grown up. Makes for a bit of Fridge Brilliance when Raimundo is made Shoku warrior and The Hero in "Time After Time"
- 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
- 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.
Master Monk Guan
- "I wouldn't celebrate your victory just yet."
- The Atoner: In his debut episode.
- Bad Ass
- Bald of Awesome
- Batman Gambit: He acts like a Drill Sergeant Nasty to make Hannibal Roy Bean sway Raimundo to his side. After Raimundo pummels Omi in a Xiaolin Showdown, Guan makes Hannibal bet the Treasure of the Blind Swordsman against all their Shen Gong Wu, and Raimundo takes a dive. Thus, the monks get back the Treasure of the Blind Swordsman, which had given Hannibal a huge advantage.
- Big Damn Heroes: When he appears to defeat Chase Young in his debut episode.
- Big Good: Shared with Master Fung. Although he doesn't appear as much as Fung, he is the most powerful good guy, able to fight equally with Big Bad Chase Young and all his efforts are in direct opposition to the seasonal Big Bad.
- Blade on a Stick: The Spear of Guan.
- Determinator: As Chase Young can testify to.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: When the monks receive training from him, particularly to Raimundo. It is revealed to be an act.
- Fashionable Asymmetry
- Ki Attacks: Repel the Beast!
- Lantern Jaw of Justice
- One-Winged Angel: Heylin!Guan can turn into a form even more monstrous than Chase's One-Winged Angel form.
- Really 700 Years Old: About as old as Chase Young, though how he survived and remained young so long is never explained.
- Stealth Hi/Bye: At the end of his debut episode, he gives Omi his spear, before disappearing without a trace when the monks try to look at him again.
- Sudden Name Change: The first time he appears in Chronicles he's referred to by the crappier name "Master Monk Guano".
- "Weird?! WHAT'S SO WEIRD ABOUT ME?!!"
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.
- 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 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. (He's be working on an evil plan only to be interrupted by his parents or his younger sister)
- Big Bad 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; 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.
- 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
- 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.
- Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 for 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.
- "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.
- Big Bad: Of the first season.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Betrays everybody she works with on a regular basis, repeatedly. Except Raimundo, and that does not end well for her.
- Deadpan Snarker: Mostly when she's exposed to 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Our Ghosts Are Different: The following tropes apply only when Wuya is ghostly:
- Evil Sounds Raspy: Her voice noticeably smoothens upon revival.
- 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.
- Showing Off the New Body: The following physical tropes apply only when Wuya is human:
- Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The redhead to Katnappe's blonde and Kimiko's brunette in later seasons.
- Smug Snake: Entirely too overconfident in her plans, which usually fail.
- The Starscream: Once she becomes The Dragon to Chase Young, she seeks out opportunities to overthrow him.
- Took a Level in Badass: Initially borders on Harmless Villain, but when she gets her body back, she becomes far more of a threat. Even when Chase Young weakens her, she's still able to defeat the Monks more than once.
- Too Powerful to Live: She's only been at full power once during the main series, and when she is, she easily takes over the world and is stopped by Dashi's puzzle box.
- "I do have a... certain reputation."
- Badass: 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Dangerously Genre Savvy: Refusing to bring Wuya back at full power, using Omi's dedication to his promises against him, the list goes on..
- Deal with the Devil: With Hannibal Roy Bean, though Chase ended up as the Devil in that agreement.
- 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.
- Genre Savvy: Knows better than to revive Wuya at full power.
- 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.
- Mordor: Lives in a dark, shadowy wasteland that he controls.
- Mr. Seahorse: He lays an egg in the aptly named episode Chase Lays an Egg. He's very attached to it, to his dismay.
- Mr. Fanservice
- Necromancer: A one-time occurance when he raises a giant undead snake with wings to fight the monks.
- Noble Demon: Chase is a ruthless half-dragon Heylin Warrior who won't hesitate to turn Omi to the Dark Side or seriously injure Jack Spicer (at the very least, considering he once tossed said "Boy Genius" off a dangerously high cliff and threw a dangerously large boulder at him in another episode), but you can bet your life and college savings that when he makes a promise, he'll keep it.
- One-Winged Angel: His reptilian form.
- And in Chronicles, his giant dragon form.
- Pitiful Worms: His favorite way of addressing Jack Spicer.
- Pretty Boy
- Really 700 Years Old: More than 1500 years old.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Jack's red.
- Scaled Up
- Signature Move: Repulse the Monkey.
- Spikes of Villainy
- Supernatural Gold Eyes
- The Stoic
- Truly Single Parent: In Chronicles to Shadow and whatever the hell is in the egg he laid.
- Unholy Matrimony: Highly hinted with Wuya in the end.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Good Chase Young as seen in the alternate universe is tragically nice, honorable and self-sacrificing. The Lao Mang Long Soup seems to drastically alter ones personality.
- Visionary Villain
- Wicked Cultured: Oozes this.
Hannibal Roy Bean
- "Aw, I almost feel pity for the po' boy. Almost."
- Aborted Arc: Supposedly, he had an Evil Plan that horrified even Chase Young, who said it was something "much worse" than The End of the World as We Know It. Since the show was Screwed by the Network, we never found out what that was. Chronicles appears to have removed him from Chase Young's backstory entirely, meaning the plan will most likely never be known.
- Bald of Evil
- Big Bad: Season 3, shared with Chase Young.
- Bigger Bad: Was essentially built up as this (being the one who made Chase Young evil, and even Chase being slightly panicked over what Hannibal Roy Bean will do to the world).
- Card-Carrying Villain
- The Corrupter: To Chase Young in the past.
- Eviler Than Thou: Against Chase Young.
- Evil Laugh: A lot.
- Faux Affably Evil
- Hannibal Lecture: Pun aside, he does this a lot, sometimes successful, sometimes not. Hell, he does this the first time he appears to Jack Spicer.
- Knight of Cerebus: The series had some pretty dark moments following his appearance, particularly in "Dreamstalker", "Wu Got The Power", and "Time After Time Part 2".
- Mad Scientist: In "Wu Got The Power".
- Manipulative Bastard: Rivals Chase Young in this area.
- Mobile-Suit Human: His giant, spiky armor which he first appears in, but is afterwards revealed to be a bean. It appears again a couple of times in season 3.
- Pintsized Powerhouse
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Sealed Evil in a Can
- Slasher Smile
- Spikes of Villainy: On his armor.
- Transformation Trinket: The Moby Morpher.
Voiced by: Lee Thompson YoungAn 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.
Voiced by: Jennifer HaleA 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.
- Designated Girl Fight: Bad puns aside, Katnappe typically faces off against Kimiko.
- Do Not Call Me Paul: She hates being called by her actual name, which is "Ashley."
- Expy: She's basically teen version of Catwoman from Batman, but more villainous.
- Extreme Omnivore: She shows how far she takes the cat theme in "The Shard of Lightning" by snacking on a live goldfish.
- 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.
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarcheAn 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.
- Belly Flop Crushing: A move he uses.
- Bilingual Bonus: With a dash of Punny Name.
- Evil Laugh: Complete with fart.
- Fat Bastard
- Highly Visible Ninja
Mala Mala Jong
- 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.
- 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.
- Evil Gloating:
- Can't resist the urge in his debut episode, which even Jack Spicer thinks it's a very bad idea, as it costs them their victory.
- It was more or less a bad idea as Vlad's gloating revealed their entire scheme to make Omi think he'd be evil in the future and gave the monk his Heroic Second Wind.
Voiced by: Kevin Michael RichardsonA 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.
- 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
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.
Le MimeA 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.
- 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.
SibiniA 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.
Voiced by: Grey DeLisleA beautiful mermaid who seeks to make the world underwater.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: At first, the Xiaolin warriors thought she was just a Distressed Damsel and Klofange the villain.
- Our Mermaids Are Different: She could survive on dry land, but at the cost of becoming a hideous monster.
- The Vamp: She even managed to continue seducing Omi once the Xiaolin warriors knew she was the real villain. He only managed to keep complete focus after her true form was revealed.
Jesse Bailey and the Black Vipers
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett (Jesse Bailey)An all-girl biker gang headed by Jesse Bailey who is Clay's younger sister.
- Brawn Hilda: In Raimundo's words:
- "She doesn't even look like a girl! She looks like you (Clay) with lipstick."
- Gender-Blender Name: According to the credits, Jesse's name is spelled the male way.
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarcheA 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.
Klofangeevil mermaid Dyris.
- Anti-Hero: He's rather trigger-happy since his first appearance has him shoot explosives at Dyris when the Xiaolin Dragons just saved her from the freezing water, so they naturally defend her from him. He's also quite scary-looking. Once Dyris' true nature gets elaborated on, he's firmly in the right.
- Badass Beard: A large, shaggy black one.
- Badass Normal: Gets by purely on his weapons and strength, yet manages to curb stomp the monks and fight against Dyris in her true form.
- Blade on a Stick: A trident which can fire explosives and extend the other end which can be used as a vice.
- The Big Guy: In his sole-episode episode, his strength eclipses everyone - he beats the Xiaolin warriors and easily gets to grips with Dyris' enormous land-form and holds it.
- Dark Is Not Evil: With his black Wild Hair, enormous size and shaggy appearance, he's kinda intimidating. However, he's trying to stop a monster from flooding the entire world.
- Deadpan Snarker: The monks collectively state how they unwittingly aided Dyris in her plans to flood the world...Klofange: "Hmmm. You sure you lot are the good guys?"
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: His right-eye has two cool and fairly straight scars going over it.
- Heroic Sacrifice: While he doesn't exactly die, he is frozen alongside Dyris at the end of the episode.
- The Hunter: Dyris is his target because she wants to flood the entire world.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's understandably very angry that the monks basically provided the means for Dyris to escape, but he does admit that Omi did well at defeating Dyris.
- Lightning Bruiser: Along with enormous size and power, he runs and jumps along builds with ease and catches a broken statue thrown at him and spins around once to toss it back.
- Peek-a-Bangs: Over his right eye...
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: His right-eye is a strange shade of red. However, he's a good guy.
- Taking You with Me: He holds Dyris with him as the iceberg they're on collapses, causing them both to be frozen in ice in the arctic ocean.
- Top-Heavy Guy: His abdomen is even very narrow right at the top of that area compared to his breast and shoulders (roughly a third of their size from left-to-right), making the cutoff point of his body's larger mass higher up than most examples of Top-Heavy Guy.
- Big Damn Heroes: When the Dragons are about to be blasted by Jack's robots, she charges in and defends them with one of Jack's inventions.
- Cute but Cacophonic: She can be very shrill when she wants to be.
- Fluffy Tamer: She has no qualms about making killer robots and mythical reptiles her playmates. Probably doesn't know any better.
- Spoiled Sweet: A spoiled brat around her cousin Jack, but sweet to others.
Blind Old Man
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: A video-game lover who calls Dojo "funny dragon"? Check. Founder of the most successful video game company in Japan? Also check.
- Doting Parent: As Kimiko's wealthy father, he made sure that as a kid she got every toy ever made. However, she had to beg him to buy her clothes.
- One of the Kids: A more mature, game-loving version of this who is quite happy to show his inner child.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: When he learns of the true identity of Pandabubba, he does not hesitate to kick him out. Too bad said "partner" has the Zing Zom-Bone.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Looks exactly like one Satoru Iwata. His silliness may have been based on Shigeru Miyamoto as well.
Debuted in Xiaolin Chronicles
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.
Voiced by: Jennifer HaleChase 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.
- American Accents: Her Southern accent as Willow.
- Blondes Are Evil
- 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
