Added DiffLines:

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: His name is basically just three similar-sounding but otherwise very random Japanese words ("dojo" essentially means a room or hall where martial arts are practiced, "kanojo" means "girlfriend", and "cho" can either mean "butterfly" or "super" depending on the characters being used) put together.

Added DiffLines:

* PuppyDogEyes: He makes this kind of expression a couple of times when he's sad. Examples include in "Like A Rock" when Master Fung doesn't give him any Shen Gong Wu (as they had only three back then) and when Raimundo calls Kimiko his favourite monk instead of him.


* BadassAdorable:
** She has a very petite frame and wears pigtails in her hair, but she can take on villains with her martial arts skills without breaking a sweat.
* BerserkButton: She can't stand Jack's flirtations and Omi's oblivious sexism.

* {{Adorkable}}: His socially ineptitude in the first episodes, lack of street smarts and habit of butchering slangs qualify him for this.

* MissingMom: Kimiko's mother is never seen or mentioned, not even in the episode where she introduces Dojo and the boys to her dad.


* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: In the first part of the finale, [[spoiler:the now elderly monks, after recovering the Sands of Time, they are ambushed by Jack and his bots. Master Fung and Clay are vaporized by lazors, Kimiko is grabbed and [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe is implied to be pulled into halves]] and [[SquashedFlat Raimundo gets stomped to death.]] [[GoryDiscretionShot We don't see it, but Omi does]], and he breaks down crying after being forced to leave them.]]



* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: [[spoiler:In the AlternativeTimeline, Master Fung is trapped inside the Ying Yang World and has been for years. The Xiaolin Monks were unable to rescue him due to having only the Ying Yo-yo, leaving them helpless against the Heylin.]]



* DamselInDistress: Played straight the first time when the Xiaolin warriors had to save Dojo from being eaten by Chase Young. Its invertēd in the final episode during the a Xiaolin showdown when the competitors had to rescue a princess trapped in a tower and as in turns out, that princess was Dojo dressed in drag as a princess.

* MeaningfulName: Dashi (大师) means grandmaster. Given that he's often referred as [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Grandmaster Dashi...]]



* ObfuscatingStupidity: In his initial appearance.

to:

* ObfuscatingStupidity: In his initial appearance.appearance, he prefers to nap at a pig den and act like he has no idea who Dashi is, until Dojo arrives and quickly breaks the act.

Added DiffLines:

* GuileHero: When Omi went back in time to get his help, this was the lesson Dashi opted to teach him. He later explains that he couldn't beat Wuya in a head-to-head fight, even when possessing the means to seal her away; he had to be clever and do something unexpected to catch her off guard.


* GreenEyes: Of the "spitfire" [[spoiler:and the "[[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor untrustworthy]]"]] variety.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: Has plenty of this with Kimiko as the series progresses, until he's eventually confirmed to have a crush on her.

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: Plenty with Raimundo, a few with Omi in earlier episodes


* VagueAge: None of the monks have their ages stated within both ''Showdown'' and ''Chronicles'', nor from [[AllThereInTheManual supplemental materials]] or [[WordOfGod the creator’s official word]]. In the shows proper, Master Fung makes a comment that implies each season of ''Showdown'' takes place over a year while ''Chronicles'' follows the first series after a supposed time skip. For the most part, the general consensus is that Clay is the oldest, while Omi and Ping Pong are the youngest.

In the shows proper, Master Fung makes a comment While it's clear that implies each season of ''Showdown'' takes place over Omi is a year child, the other three monks are sometimes depicted acting like teenagers but then are shown playing with toys and action figures like children.
** The reboot combines this with ArtisticAge regarding the character redesigns: Kimiko and Raimundo now look distinctly teenage
while ''Chronicles'' follows the first series after a supposed time skip. Clay could be easily mistaken for an adult. However, none of their ages are stated, even when Kimiko celebrates [[AgelessBirthdayEpisode her birthday]] in one episode.

For the most part, the general consensus is that it's presumed Clay is the oldest, while Omi and Ping Pong are the youngest.


* DecoyProtagonist: [[spoiler:Not strictly speaking; he's still going to become the Chosen One, just not the official team leader.]]



* TheHero: Omi is this, [[spoiler:initially]]. The Bird of Paradise revealed that his greatest trait was loyalty. He was proud of his status as a Xiaolin monk as he always kept his word as a monk and was loyal to his comrades. However, the role was later transferred to [[spoiler:Raimundo]].
