    Bartholomew Chang

Voiced by: Timothy Dang

A Taiwanese businessman and criminal mastermind who has a habit of stealing objects made from jade stone. He becomes a minor recurring enemy to the J-Team.

  • Arch-Enemy: To the "J-Team", since they were formed specifically to bring him down and his plans afterwards were based around getting revenge on them, meaning he is the only villain to have an enmity against the team in general rather than the Chan family in particular.
  • Artificial Limbs: He lost his right hand in an iron fist competition. He has a variety of artificial hands equipped with weapons or household objects as a replacement, his favorite being made of jade.
  • Baleful Polymorph: In his last appearance, a chi spell turns him into a child. It's never revealed if he's turned back to normal.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: He's a superficially legitimate businessman who funds organized crime.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: He is an international crime lord who engages in the smuggling and theft of precious jade treasures.
  • Expy: He is basically a family-friendly stand-in for Mr Han, the villain of the Bruce Lee film Enter the Dragon, which followed the same plot as his debut episode. This includes the fact that both have artificial hands and recruit new talent with a tournament.
  • Evil Old Folks: While his exact age isn't specified, he looks to be in his sixties or late fifties at least.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: A millionaire with his own island and a passion for collecting the finest jade statues and ornaments.
  • Outside-Genre Foe: Chang could be considered an inversion, in that he's exactly the sort of mundane, non-magical international criminal that Section 13 is supposed to be dealing with, even though by the time he shows up they've already been pitted against demon sorcerers and other magical villains.
  • Purple Is the New Black: He habitually wears a purple coat.
  • Starter Villain: In a sense. He first shows up late in season 2; however, he is the first villain to prompt Jade and Captain Black to assemble the "J-Team" on the grounds that four martial artists infiltrating his tournament is better than just sending Jackie alone. Most of his schemes afterwards are revenge plots.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: He's introduced as being a "philanthropist" because he gives the profits of numerous enterprises to charity.

    El Chupacabra

A demonic beast that was attacking livestock in Mexico. It scratches El Toro during a fight, cursing him to become one himself.

  • Alien Blood: After the Chupacabra scratches El Toro, the first sign that he's changing into one is that his wound is green instead of red.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: El Toro falls victim to its curse, and transforms every night until he's cured.
  • Character Death: It's destroyed by the sunlight, though not before it scratches El Toro.
  • Chupacabra: It looks more like Bigfoot or some other feral monster rather than a grey alien, but the cattle stalker trait is still present.
  • Our Werebeasts Are Different: Much like a werewolf, the Chupacabra's bite or scratch can turn a human into another Chupacabra, but only at night.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Both the first Chupacabra and the transformed El Toro have fully red eyes.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Its body is covered with spikes.
  • Weakened by the Light: The first Chupacabra was disintegrated after the Sun rose in the morning. The cursed El Toro couldn't walk into the sunlight, even when he reverted to human form during daytime.

    The Jiangshi
Don't disturb the sleeping beauty.

An undead vampire who haunted an abandoned castle in the mountains of China. He drains chi from humans, which can turn them into vampire slaves if left untreated.

    Kuniko Kasahara (Origami)
Click here to see him as Origami. 

Voiced by: Timothy Dang

A Japanese burglar based in Paris, France who has the ability to turn into paper and fold up like an origami sculpture. He uses his powers to rob East Asian art from the Louvre Museum.

  • Bond, James Bond: Jackie introduces himself to Origami as "Chan, Jackie Chan". Origami keeps calling him that.
  • Calling Card: He leaves origami sculptures at crime scenes.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: He was originally a skilled but ordinary burglar, until he touched a magic artifact that gave him the ability to turn himself into paper.
  • Frame-Up: He manages to paint Jackie, Jade, and Viper as offenders when the police interrupt their confrontation.
  • Logical Weakness: Origami is made of paper, which, while naturally making him incredibly flexible, also leaves him weak to water which significantly hinders his movement, and his folding can be used against him; he's trapped inside of a pot as soon as Jackie gets the jump on him.
  • Paper Master: Hence his moniker of "Origami".
  • Phantom Thief: He has a preference for stealing Far Eastern art.
  • Purple Is the New Black: As Kasahara, he wears a purple suit.
  • The Quiet One: A thief who is a man of few words.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: He can turn himself into paper, and then fold up into the shapes of various creatures.
  • We Will Meet Again: In his last scene, he's in prison, creating an origami resembling Jackie and crushing it. He doesn't say anything, but he clearly vows to have revenge on Jackie.

    Monkey King
The King's living and puppet forms

Stop me if you've heard this one befooorre...

Voiced by: Bill Tanzer (first appearance) and Billy West (second appearance)

Monkey King is a trickster monkey. Based on the Chinese legend of Sun Wukong, he is released whenever someone pulls his puppet form's leg. The luckless victim becomes a puppet in his place, only to be restored if he pulls their leg, which he isn't likely to do of his own free will. He might seem like an irritating prankster at first glance, but he takes a very dim view of anyone trying to spoil his fun.

  • And I Must Scream: He seems to be fully aware in his puppet form, with his first appearance showing his thoughts, and he gleefully can't wait to get out. This doesn't apply to his victims, who aren't awake whilst being a puppet.
  • Ax-Crazy: What his "fun" turns into; dangerous actions that can lead to death.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's a mischievous prankster, but can give serious trouble to Jackie and the others. He was able to outmatch Jackie and Uncle in a two-on-one fight and effortlessly trounce Tohru. If not for his compulsion to engage in mischief, he would be one of the Chan Family's most dangerous enemies.
  • Demonic Dummy: His puppet form is completely harmless, just don't pull his leg.
  • Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: In his first appearance, Jade tricks him into pulling puppet-Jackie's leg.
  • Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor: Sending a living puppet through a wood chipper is hilarious, right?
  • Puppet Permutation: He's a wooden dummy, but he changes into a live being when someone pulls his leg. The person who pulls his leg turns into a dummy themselves. And if the Monkey King pulls the victim's leg, their positions change back to normal.
  • Slasher Smile: Often sports these when indulding his lunatic fun.
  • Sublime Rhyme: The instructions for switching places with a person in terms of living-puppet.
    To free me of glitches and put you in stitches, this merry ape begs: Pull my leg.
  • Tickle Torture: In his second appearance, he uses this technique on Tohru to find out where the other Chans have gone.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: He can be talked into making more spectacular ways to kill other people.

    The Old Monk
Ancient wisdom: Words are breath that blows the fire of knowledge

Voiced by: Tim Lounibos

An old monk who guided Jackie to the Lotus Temple where the magical scrolls of Hung Chao are hidden. A really quirky person who's constantly in meditation and speaks in proverbs and riddles. He turns out to be villainous, and is also after these scrolls.

  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Fares quite well against Jackie in hand-to-hand combat. He also gains magic powers after obtaining some scrolls from the Lotus Temple.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After trespassing into the Lotus Temple for his own personal gains, he fails to leave before sunrise, so he's trapped inside (and probably becomes the new guardian monster).
  • Lotus Position: He always meditates in this position.
  • Levitating Lotus Position: After he gains power from the scrolls, his normal meditation is now a foot or so off the ground.
  • Power Glows: He glows in yellow light after his empowerment.
  • Power Palms: After he paints an inscription detailed in the scrolls on his palms, he can blast Ki Manipulation from his hands.
  • Proverbial Wisdom: Almost the trope codifier. Partly subverted, since he turns out to be Evil All Along.
  • Sinister Minister: A rare example of a villainous Buddhist priest.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He tries to blast a weakened Xu Lin.

    Spring-Heeled Jack
I'm free, to be me!

Voiced by: Corey Burton

A ravenous and rhyming troll, who can leap great distances. Many years before, a wizard named Simon Magus turned him into a statue and stored him in his museum of strange creatures. Accidentally released by Yin Jackie, he goes out for revenge... by seeking out the descendants of Magus, so that he can eat them.

    Vanessa Barone
Ah, been called a lot of things: relic hunter, mercenary, thief. But Vanessa Barone, nice lady? Ha, ha! That is a new one.

Voiced by: Mona Marshall

A female relic hunter, mercenary, and thief who wanted to find the Eye of Aurora, a necklace that contained power of teleportation.

  • Combat Stilettos: She's a relic hunter, mercenary, and thief who wears high-heeled boots while on business.
  • Dark Action Girl: She fares quite well against Jackie.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Whether it's a tan or her natural skin tone, Vanessa is just as advertised.


How well does it match the trope?
