Tropes Associated With All of the Panda Kids

Nu Hai

Voiced by:
Haley Tju

The overachieving leader of the Four Constellations and sister of Bao.


Tropes:
  • Hand Blast: How her powers from the Blue Dragon manifest.
  • The Leader: Falls between Levelheaded and Headstrong. While she tries to lead the rest of the kids with a clear head and tries to inspire them, her overzealous nature gets the group in over their heads multiple times, up to the point where she freezes multiple times from trying to make a decision.
  • Whole Costume Reference: Her outfit does hearken back to Tigress' outfit in the first/second movie. She confesses later on that Tigress is her idol, as also hinted by her Tigress doll in the first episode.

Bao

Jing

Voiced by:
Laya Hayes

The tough, aggressive healer of the Four Constellations.


Tropes:
  • Buffy Speak
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom / Mind-Control Eyes: Glows a radioactive green whenever Jindiao possesses/influences her.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper
    Po, expositing about the Four Constellations: [White Tiger] was so chill, he wouldn't hurt a fly.
    [cut to Jing trying to punch a fly for looking at her weird]
    • Jiandao refers to her as the "weird, angry" panda after she heals him and accidentally creates a connection with him.
  • Healing Hands: How her powers from the White Tiger manifest.
    • Jedi Mind Trick: After tapping into her healing for the first time and healing both her allies and the water deer henchmen, she influences the latter to leave peacefully with blank, white-eyed stares.
    • Time Stands Still: A passive effect that occurred when she tapped into her power for the first time.
  • Traumatic Superpower Awakening: After Jade Tusk and her cohorts began to fight against her friends and the pika monks.
    Jing, clutching her head: Please— can everyone just— stop fighting!

Fan Tong

Voiced by:
Makana Say

The kind-hearted, sensitive muscle of the Four Constellations.


Tropes:

     Antagonists 

Jindiao

Voiced by:
Steve Blum

The original Dragon Master and former mentor to the original Four Constellations, before he became drunk with power. He attempted to steal the qi from his students before being defeated and sealed away.


Tropes:
  • A God Am I: His ultimate goal is to access the Wellspring of qi below the Panda Village to return to his true dragon form and rule as a god.
  • Ancient Evil: He was defeated by his students and trapped in a mortal body one thousand years prior to the events of the series.
  • Bad Boss: He constantly mistreats his minions, especially when they fail.
  • Big Bad: The main villain for the first arc of the season.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Po, as the Dragon Master and mentor to the Four Constellations. They even fight as dragons in the Spirit Realm.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Glows a radioactive, bright green whenever using his qi powers.
  • Mind Control: Usually the one to inflict this on others to get his way.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: By day, he masquerades as a senile, Oogway-esque grand abbot that teaches a horde of pika monks that are none the wiser.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: The first story arc of the season ends with him sealed away in the Spirit Urn.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: His mortal form is a Lämmergeier
  • Vampiric Draining: When taking the qi of others, it's implied that he has used it to keep his host body alive for the past thousand years. Once he takes Po's and the Four Constellation's qi, he reverts back to his dragon form.

Jade Tusk

Voiced by:
Cherise Boothe

Jindiao's right-hand woman, apprentice, and leader of the Deer Monks, who also serve him.


Tropes:
  • The Dragon: Serves as Jindiao's right hand and leader of his minions up until the season finale, when Jindiao turns on her.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being told outright that her loyalty meant nothing to Jindiao, it was ultimately the reason why she switched sides and even gave back the Spirit Urn to the pandas.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: She, along with the rest of her group are water deer.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: After a season's worth of being treated horribly from her employer as a result of her multiple failures, it ultimately culminates into a moment in the finale where Jade Tusk is held as a hostage by Mei Mei to deter the attacks... only for Jindiao to laugh and rebuke that she never mattered to him before attacking the both of them to make a point.
    Mei Mei, off to the side: Wow, that is really cold.

Wong

Voiced by:
Piotr Michael

One of Rooster's henchmen.


Tropes:
  • Ambiguously Gay: In "A Game of Fists," he says that he's madly in love with Wing after being questioned due to a line from Rooster about losing a wedding gift for Wing and Wong. However, later in the episode, Rooster tells Wing he made up the part about their wedding gift to get the kids on their side, which apparently neither Wing nor Wong realized, so whether the whole thing was a joke or not is ambiguous.
    • Though as the series goes on, the ambiguity over whether Rooster was lying about them being a couple or just the wedding becomes less ambiguous as Wing and Wong do things like hold hands for no real reason, call each other darling, talk about having kids, offer a "helping hoof" in the bathroom, and most blatantly have Wing call Wong "the love of my life." But since it's a PG series, they never do anything explicitly romantic.
  • Ascended Extra: Gains a bigger role in the second half of season one.
  • Enemy Mine: Alongside Wing and Rooster, he forced to work with Po and his allies during the second half of the season to survive Shi Long's machinations.
  • Fake Pregnancy: Wong says that he's pregnant on one occasion, says that "one of us" is pregnant on another occasion, and says they have an unborn child on yet another occasion. Assuming Wong isn't actually a woman (which isn't very likely given that he doesn't wear a shirt and gets slammed into a volcano wall 10 times after he says he's pregnant) this could be a running joke that Wing and Wong are both so stupid that they think they've been getting each other pregnant.
  • Those Two Guys: With Wing.

Wing

Another one of Rooster's henchmen.


Tropes:
  • Ambiguously Gay: In "A Game of Fists," he says that he's a couple with Wong and that they thought it was obvious after being question due to a line from Rooster about losing a wedding gift for Wing and Wong. However, later in the episode, Rooster tells Wing he made up the part about their wedding gift to get the kids on their side, which apparently neither Wing nor Wong realized, so whether the whole thing was a joke or not is confusing.
