    Daolon Wong
Ah, darkness shall begin its reign.

Voiced by: James Hong

The main villain of Season 3. He is an ancient Chinese dark chi wizard who tries to find the animals with Talisman powers.

  • Ambiguously Human: A brief view provided by Astral Projection in Sheep In, Sheep Out shows Daolon Wong to be filled with some kind of screaming spirits, and that raises a question of what he is exactly.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Uncle, as they are both chi wizards, Uncle is Wong's Good Counterpart, and Wong "defeated" Uncle's teacher.
  • Arc Villain: He's the main enemy of Season 3, but only a minor recurring enemy otherwise.
  • Ascended Extra: He went from being a recurring villain in Season 2, to the main villain of Season 3.
  • Badass Boast: He gives one before imprisoning the Living Statue of Quetzalcoatl in a magic sphere.
    Daolon Wong: Your power of light is no match for the blackest chi.
  • Bad Boss:
    Chow: At least Valmont bothered to learn our names!
    • Wong values the more competent Hak Foo more than the other Enforcers initially, but as soon as Hak Foo's success rate comes to an end, Wong treats him just as badly as the others.
    • He tells them he's not their "boss" and demands that they address and acknowledge him as their "master".
  • The Bad Guy Wins: The episode which introduced both Eggbert (the Noble Rooster) and Mordecai (the Noble Pig) ended with him getting away with both talisman powers!
  • Big Bad: Of Season 3. He's after the Noble Animals with the Talisman powers.
  • Beard of Evil: He has a white goatee.
  • Black Magic: You don't see Uncle enslaving people to be his Dark Chi Warriors.
  • Black Speech: He mutters his spells in sinister sounding Chinese.
  • Butt-Monkey: Almost every episode he's in usually ends up with him getting injured, and his final defeat is the most humiliating of any of the Big Badshe's stripped of his powers in a Curb-Stomp Battle and left to rot in prison. Likewise, most of his defeats are Humiliation Congas, with the episode involving time travel even having him rapidly flash through each of his most painful defeats.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: The only goal that Wong's made clear is that he wants to spread evil.
    Santa Claus: "Please, please... Think of the children."
    Daolon Wong: "Ahh... Your pleas are fruitless, for my soul, dear Kringle, is as black as coal."
  • Catch Phrase:
    • "Gan, Ren, Chui!"
    • "Eh?"
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Daolon Wong is much weaker than Shendu and the Demon Sorcerers, but tends to be much more direct, and much more likely to have comically horrible things happen to him, owing in part to his lack of common sense, to the point that he fails to realize Shendu will betray him.
  • Dark Is Evil: He's proud to declare his membership to the Forces of Darkness.
  • Depowered: In the 3rd arc's end, Uncle takes away all of Wong's magical powers.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Uncle. They're both elderly and experienced Chinese chi wizards, but while Uncle fights to preserve the balance between good and evil, Wong attempts to tip the balance in favor of evil. They both have a no-nonsense attitude that makes them berate verbally and even physically their younger comrades/subordinates in order to set them in line. They're also grouchy and at least somewhat out of touch with modern times. In fact, Jade often refers to Wong as "the anti-Uncle". In The Good, the Bad, the Blind, the Deaf and the Mute, Wong himself lampshades this to Uncle.
    Daolon Wong: It would appear you are the appropriate Yin to my Yang, good wizard.
  • Eviler Than Thou: He once ends up facing the Monkey King and wins, and he easily puts Valmont in his place when recruiting the Enforcers. However, later he ends up on the "thou" end twice, first against Shendu, and then again against Tarakudo, leaving him in prison for a while.
  • Evil Gloating: He has a fondness for making dramatic speeches, even though they tend to blow in his face.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: For a devoted evildoer, he should have known better than to make a deal with Shendu.
  • Evil Is One Big, Happy Family: While he is a Bad Boss par excellence, he seems to have this opinion of serious evil doers, referring to Shendu as a "brother in darkness" and is genuinely shocked when Shendu betrays him, and he is working to further the cause of evil for its own sake. Power is a means to that end for him, not an end in itself.
  • Evil Laugh: Definitely fits the bill in "The Good, the Bad, the Blind, the Deaf and the Mute" and "A Jolly J-Team X-Mas".
  • Evil Old Folks: He's probably older than Uncle, given the fact that he faced off Uncle's teacher.
  • Evil Plan: In Season 3: claim the powers of Shendu's Talismans and use them to further the cause of evil.
  • Evil Sorcerer: He's an evil Witch Doctor. His magic is basically the same type as the one Uncle uses, but utilized for a more malevolent purpose.
  • Evil vs. Evil: He tends to do this with a lot of villains namely Shendu, Valmont, the Monkey King, and Tarakudo. He also was this to the Enforcers until he forced them to be his new warriors.
  • Evil Wears Black: He wears a black and blue robe.
  • Expy: He has many similarities to Lo Pan, another evil and ancient Chinese wizard who has three mystical warriors as servants and who's voiced by James Hong (this also makes Wong similar to Mortal Kombat's Shang Tsung, who is also based on Lo Pan and is elderly).
  • Eye Recall: In The Good, the Bad, the Blind, the Deaf and the Mute when Wong realizes what Uncle's earlier chanting caused.
  • Facial Markings: He has black tattoos on his face.
  • Fangs Are Evil: He can create in each of his palm a fanged mouth.
  • Falsely Reformed Villain: He remains in prison for most of Season 4, but has been released for "good behavior" in Déjà Vu and is after the Deja Vu stone.
  • Femme Fatalons: His fingernails are long, jagged and sharp-looking.
  • Forgot About His Powers: After Shendu betrays him and steals his two talisman powers, Shendu overpowers Wong and demands to know where the noble animals are kept. It never occurs to Wong that he should teleport away like he has in his previous defeats.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: A fairly mild case, but compared to most of the series' other villains, including some of the one-shots, Daolon Wong gets very little backstory and personality; one of the only things formally revealed about him is that he killed Chi Master Fong, and his personality is mostly basic Card-Carrying Villain affair. This might be the reason why Shendu ends up becoming the main threat of his arc's finale; aside from being much stronger, he also has a more personal grudge against the Chan Clan than Wong.
  • Genre Blind: How did he NOT see Shendu's betrayal coming? Everyone else did.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Right before he turns the Enforcers into his new Dark Chi Warriors, his eyes glow in light blue color.
  • The Grinch: In A Jolly J-Team X-Mas, Wong targets Santa Claus in order to steal his extraordinarily good chi. While Jade initially assumes that Wong is a classical Christmas-hater (going so far as to call him part-Grinch), his main point was to gain power rather than specifically ruin Christmas.
  • Grumpy Old Man: Smugness aside, he's never genuinely happy.
  • Hero Killer: You know he's bad news when he brags about "defeating" Chi Master Fong.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: To Shendu in Season 3. As soon as the old dragon is resurrected, he becomes the main threat.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Most of his plans fail due to this trope. The biggest example would be him trusting Shendu.
  • Hostage for MacGuffin: In Rabbit Run, he takes Chip hostage and demands the Chans to exchange him for Lucky the Noble Rabbit.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Wong tends to tauntingly call Uncle old, despite his own advanced age.
    Daolon Wong: You cannot defeat me, old man.
    Uncle: [huffs undignifiedly] Who are you calling old, you bag of bones?!
  • Ki Manipulation: Launches it with his magic wand.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • In The Powers Unleashed, he shoots a dog with a chi blast meant to vaporize it for pulling his robe. Good thing said dog was immortal. He was also content with killing all the canine competitors at a dog show in order to make his quest for the Noble Dog among the crowd all the more easier.
    • In Aztec Rat Race, he threatens to kill the Noble Rat in order to scatter his power back to the winds and Jade (and Paco) along with him if she doesn't hand the rat over to Wong. Wong would have gladly gone through with his threat if not for the Living Statue of Quetzalcoatl.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch:
    • While forcefully recruiting the Enforcers, Wong traps Valmont in concrete when he speaks against the wizard. Later he transforms Valmont into a child when the fallen crime lord tries to threaten him into returning the Enforcers to him.
    • Wong's confrontation with the Monkey King ends with him returning the prankster into his puppet form.
    • Wong finds himself getting kicked by Shendu, who effortlessly takes the two Talisman powers he got earlier in the season away from him.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Despite being a Butt-Monkey, Daolon Wong brings more sinister tones to the story than any other human villain, like the Dark Hand. He is also one of the few human antagonists who are confirmed to have killed another character.
  • Lack of Empathy: Not only he's willing to harm innocent bystanders and animals, but he's utterly dismissive of the Enforcers' feelings and opinions. Ironically, this trait also prevents him from preparing himself against Shendu's betrayal because he doesn't fathom a "brother in darkness" going back on their agreement.
  • Laser-Guided Karma:
    • After stripping people of their sight, hearing and speech in The Good, the Bad, the Blind, the Deaf and the Mute, he loses all three of them.
    • He vanquished Chi Master Fong, but he ends up being repeatedly humiliated and ultimately stripped of his magic by Fong's apprentice.
    • In his last appearance, he's dragged off to be interrogated by the past versions of the Enforcers, the same ones whose present versions he enslaved and abused during the 3rd season.
  • Lean and Mean: He is the most scrawny of the major antagonists and arguably the worst case of a Bad Boss out of all of them.
  • Levitating Lotus Position: He's shown to be capable of this in The Good, the Bad, the Blind, the Deaf and the Mute.
  • Magic Wand: His wooden scepter. It's eventually rendered powerless by Uncle.
  • Mana Drain: He's able to absorb Talisman powers from living beings by using the holes in his palms.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Wong's left eye is gray, and his right eye is blue. Maybe it's due to magic?
  • Necromancer: He resurrects Shendu by magically creating for him a new physical body to replace the one Jade destroyed at the end of Season 1. This does not particularly work out well for Wong.
  • Never My Fault: When Wong concludes in Animal Crackers that the Talisman power record is 9-2 for the Chans' favor, he blames the Enforcers for that. Of course he's ignoring the fact that it was his idea to enslave them as his Dark Chi Warrior replacements and never thought of finding more competent substitutes (excluding that instance with the Shadowkhan in Sheep In, Sheep Out). He's also blaming all four Enforcers equally, even Hak Foo who has been along only since the conflict over the eleventh power.
  • Offscreen Villainy: When Uncle and Daolon Wong first meet, Wong reveals himself as the one who killed Uncle's teacher Chi Master Fong. This crime is never shown onscreen.
  • Old Master: Uncle often vouches for Wong's expertise and Wong seems to be more knowledgeable about more arcane spells than Uncle. For instance, he knew the original spell that turned Shendu into a statue. However, he does not seem to keep up with Uncle's more modern spells.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Half the time he appears, he pulls out some new magic, sometimes something that he never uses again, like turning Valmont into a child or creating a giant ogre out of thin air.
  • Promotion to Opening Titles: He is featured at Season 3's opening titles to show his status as that season's main antagonist.
  • Put on a Bus: After he accidentally releases Tarakudo at the beginning of Season 4, he's left to rot in prison as the Enforcers are released by the Oni King. It takes over ten episodes before he makes his final appearance.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Daolon or Daolan? Even the official website can't decide. Daolon seems to be the more popular spelling among the fanbase.
  • Smoke Out: He conceals himself in blue smoke when he teleports. Sometimes he "poofs" like his Dark Chi Warriors.
  • Smug Snake: He's utterly convinced of his ingenuity, yet he rarely succeeds.
  • The Sociopath: Wong is willing to engage in any atrocities for the sake of spreading evil for its own sake or just out of sheer vindictiveness. He also has a lack of empathy that extends to innocent animals, bystanders, and his own minions. Like real-life sociopaths, he's rather poor in learning from his mistakes.
  • Squishy Wizard: Out of the main villains in JCA, he's physically the least fit. It makes things much harder for him after he's stripped of his magic.
  • Takes One to Kill One: In Wong's debut episode, he sends his warriors to assassinate Tohru until he learns of Uncle's existence. Deciding that it takes a chi wizard to defeat a chi wizard, he leads the next attack personally.
  • Too Dumb to Live: The only one who was surprised that Shendu betrayed him was Wong himself. He then attempts to use two of Shendu's Talisman powers against him, and Shendu simply stops his eye beams in midair and pulls the powers out of Wong, "thanking" him for the rebirthday presents.
  • Too Many Mouths: He can create in his palms round mouths and absorb the Talisman magic into himself through them.
  • Villainous Cheekbones: His wilted flesh makes no effort to hide his classically villainous cheekbones.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He's last seen in Deja Vu, being taken away by the past Enforcers for interrogation. While Jackie returns to the present, Wong's ultimate fate is never revealed.
  • Wizard Duel: Almost in their every encounter, he and Uncle engage in this, whatever it's a classical Beam-O-War or something more original.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He threatens to kill Jade along with the Noble Rat in Aztec Rat Race and would have gladly gone through with his threat if not for the Living Statue of Quetzalcoatl. He would have also blasted Valmont in Little Valmont, Big Jade if not for the Enforcers' unexpected interference.
  • You Killed My Father: States that he "defeated" Uncle's teacher, Chi Master Fong (the details of which are never brought up). While the show has a Never Say "Die" policy, most dialogue indicates that Wong killed him.

    Dark Chi Warriors
Ready as soldiers, silent as ghosts. From left to right: Gan, Chui and Ren.
Meet Dark Chi Enforcers. From left to right: Chui (Ratso), Ren (Finn) and Gan (Chow).
And Zhen (Hak Foo).

Daolon Wong's demonic henchmen. They originally consisted of Ren, Chui, and Gan. Later they were replaced by Finn, Ratso, and Chow respectively. Eventually, Hak Foo was also turned into one of the Warriors and renamed Zhen.

  • Facial Markings: They all have lightning bolt on their chins (excluding Zhen) and on their foreheads a mark similar to the one Daolon Wong has. They are both colored blue.
  • Fighting with Chucks: Gan/Chow's weapon is a sanjiegun, a three-sectional staff.
  • Fuma Shuriken: Ren/Finn's Weapon of Choice. It's used close range or as a throwing weapon.
  • In a Single Bound: They can jump quite high, Zhen even more so.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Chui can mean "hammer" in Chinese.
    • Zhen can mean "rare" or "precious" in Chinese, reflecting Wong's slightly higher valuing of Hak Foo due to him being more competent than the other Enforcers.


How well does it match the trope?
