The Bailey Family

    Daddy Bailey 

Daddy Bailey

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_3.png
Voiced by: Greg Baldwin
The patriarch of the Bailey family, Daddy Bailey is the father of Clay and Jesse in the first series, and Patrick in the second series. A world-famous cattleman, he runs the Bailey Ranch in Texas and raises cattle, among other things.
  • Abusive Dad: Downplayed. He's not a bad guy and he means well, but his stern attitude, high expectations and insistence on how to do things means he was emotionally neglectant to his child. In "Big as Texas", he was heavily critical of Clay on how he did this, not to mention making his younger childen feel unimportant when we meet them.
  • Ambiguously Absent Parent: His wife and mother of his three children makes no appearance in either series, although there's a brief image of her in "The Black Vipers". Interestingly enough, Daddy Bailey himself is absent in the second series, although is referred to indirectly in "Super Cow Patty".
  • Badass Normal: He's a big and muscular man, who's introduced as a famous cattleman, and is bold enough to stare down a legion of Jack-Bots that have cornered him in.
  • Because I Said So: He's a pretty traditional father in this sense and how he gets Clay to come hom in "Big As Texas" to help out.
  • Fantasy-Forbidding Father: Played With. Initially, he's unimpressed and a bit confused by what he saw of life at the Xiaolin Temple when he visited and insisted Clay come back home to the farm. Once he sees Clay in action and save the day, he does lighten up since he has a greater understanding of the monks' responsabilities.
  • Follow in My Footsteps: He has high expectations of his children and given Clay's the favorite, insists he follows them in doing things his way.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be pretty critical with high expectations and the traditional masculine sense of insisting things being done his way, but he's still a well-meaning man.
  • Parental Favoritism: According to Jesse and Patrick, Clay's his favorite. However, this does mean he holds the highest expectations and demands of Clay (though Jesse seems to imply the favortism may have been why he let let Clay join the temple.)
  • So Proud of You: Tells Clay this after he wins the showdown with Jack, but it's more Clay finally standing up for himself to do things his way rather than just doing what he wants him to do. He passes the family heirloom (the Star of Hanabi) down to Clay, recognizing his son did become a good man and sending him and the Monks off with his blessings.
  • Unnamed Parent: His first name is never stated within the series and is only addressed as "Daddy" by Clay or as "Pa" by Jesse.

    Jesse Bailey 

Jesse Bailey

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_4.png
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett
Clay's younger sister (and likely the youngest of the Bailey children) who is the leader of the infamous Black Viper motorcycle gang.
  • Always Second Best: What led her to feel like she was The Unfavorite. Clay beat her in everything and she sided with Jack because it gave her the chance to beat Clay at something. She does, but it doesn't make her feel any better to say the least
  • Amazon Brigade: Her and her Black Vipers are all tough female bikers.
  • And Then What?: Undertones of this after she defeats Clay. Despite finally one-upping him, she doesn't feel better about herself.
  • Badass Normal: She's pretty strong and capable of fighting despite no training like Clay.
    • Badass Biker: She's the head of a biker gang that gain a reputation as extremely dangerous in Texas and she is Clay's sister after all.
  • Black Sheep: Slightly implied since she did join a biker gang and why Clay nor their father mentioned her before.
  • Blinding Bangs: Like Clay, her hair covers her eyes in some shots.
  • 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.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Though they are best seen from the back, she wears these in her short hair.
  • The Unfavorite: The reason why she joined the Black Vipers and later Jack. She felt second-best compared to Clay who was better at everything and of course him going to become a Xiaolin Monk was the last straw.
  • Was It Really Worth It?: She's so determined to try and beat Clay that she backstabbed him during a Showdown after he saved her. However, she quickly loses her joy and becomes guilty as she's riding off. She sends a box to Clay with a letter, explaining that despite finally beating Clay, she didn't really feel satisfied about it. As an apology, she returned them their Wu (except for the Wings of Tinabi that she kept for herself) and it implies that she and Clay are patching things up.

    Patrick Bailey 

Patrick Bailey / Super Cow Patty

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_6.png
Click here to see him as Super Cow Patty. 
Voiced by: David Kaye
A big and muscular cowboy, Patrick “Patty” Bailey is the younger brother of Clay Bailey. He is also Super Cow Patty, a masked superhero who fights evil with cow-based moves.
  • Always Second Best: Much like Jesse, he was always overshadowed by Clay though he never went to the extents she did and took an opposite path.
  • Badass Baritone: As his Super Cow Patty super hero identity, he speaks with a deep cowboy accent oozing with badassery.
  • Badass Cape: A rather ugly cape but it looks badass in his Super Cow Patty persona.
  • Badass Normal: Like his sister, he relies on normal human skills along with the help of some milk guns.
  • The Unfavorite: Downplayed compared to Jesse. His backstory doesn't imply he was a Black Sheep like his sister was but he still holds the same grudge and envy towards Clay that Jesse had.

    Grandpappy Bailey 

Grandpappy Bailey

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_5.png
Voiced by: David Kaye
Clay and his siblings' grandfather, who runs his own cattle ranch in Texas.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Grandpappy has brown skin, in contrast to his grandchildren and (presumably) son from the first series, who are all white. Whether he's supposed to be white, mixed-race, or even Latino has never been confirmed.
  • Long-Lived: He appears to be in his late sixties at the most, but Clay states at the beginning of "Magic Stallion and the Wild Wild West" that he's celebrating his 100th birthday.
  • Summoning Artifact: He was in the possession of the Silver Longhorn talisman, which an Indian chief gave to his own grandfather a long time ago. It can summon the legendary hose named Thunderhoof.
  • Token Good Teammate: He seems to be the only family member Clay has a good relationship with. This exemplified when the first thing Grandpappy does when seeing his (much taller) grandson is give him a great big hug in delight.

The Tohomiko Family

    Toshiro Tohomiko 

Toshiro Tohomiko

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_2.png
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett
Kimiko and Tomoko's father, who runs Tohomiko Electronics – the largest video game developer in Japan.
  • Ambiguously Brown: For some reason, in Chronicles he's depicted with brown or very tanned skin, when both his daughters are fair-skinned. He himself was fair-skinned in Showdown.
  • Adaptational Job Change: Toshiro in Showdown was the owner of a large and influential Japanese video game developer. In Chronicles, he's apparently a scientist (at one point is referred to as 'Dr. Toho') that works with virtual reality.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the first series, he's dotting parent to Kimiko and they have a good father-daughter relationship. In the second series however, their relationship is strained because Toshiro apparently neglected her for the sake of his 'top secret' project.
  • Alliterative Name: Both his first and last name start with "T".
  • 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.

    Tomoko Tohomiko 

Tomoko Tohomiko / Tigress Woo

Voiced by: Cree Summer
Kimiko's big sister, she rarely has time for her family because of her job as an interdimensional spy.

The Spicer Family

    Megan Spicer 

Megan Spicer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_8.png
Voiced by: Tara Strong
Jack's little cousin.
  • 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.
  • Cheerful Child: Likes the same things as any other child of her age, like tea parties and skipping the rope. Jack finds it annoying that she uses his Jackbots for this.
  • Fluffy Tamer: She has no qualms about making killer robots and mythical reptiles her playmates. Probably doesn't know any better.

    Jack's Parents 

    Jack's Grandmother 

Allies

    Jermaine 

Jermaine

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_9.png
Voiced by: Lee Thompson Young
An 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 was already good enough to take on thugs using a basketball prior to receiving any training..
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: They're certainly rather thick.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Joins the monks temporarily in his second-appearance episode, but goes back home at the end of the episode.
  • 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.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Manages to keep a fight against three thugs much larger than him and scare them away.
  • 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.

    Klofange 

Klofange

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_10.png
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

A hunter who was seeking the evil mermaid Dyris.


    Princess Kaila 

Princess Kaila

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_11_4.png
Voiced by: Jennifer Hale
An ancient princess who been trapped for 500 years until the monks managed to break the seal that imprisoned her.
  • Aborted Arc: At the very end of the season one, there seemed to be a plot unfolding between her, Shadow and Wuya, with latter out for revenge against her. Unfortunately, because the show ends right then, the plot will remain forever unknown.
  • Baleful Polymorph: When she was imprisoned, Kaila was transformed into a shriveled up, zombie-like creature that couldn’t speak at all.
  • Big Fancy Castle: The new Xiaolin Temple might have been her original palace, considering they both share similar aesthetics and design.
  • Cool Crown: She wears a golden tiara on top of her head, which is complimented by elaborate hair decorations.
  • Damsel in Distress: She was imprisoned for unknown reasons and was freed by the monks unknowingly.
  • Put on a Bus: Despite stating she has a duty protecting the temple, Kaila leaves at the end of her titular episode using Thunderhoof as transportation.
  • The Reveal: In "Fly the Dragon!", Wuya states that Dashi and Kaila turned her into a ‘ghostface’, implying that Kaila play a hand in her defeat before the series began.

    Moonata 

Moonata

Voiced by: Tara Strong
  • Making a Splash: She used to be the Xiaolin Dragon of water of her generation, being also the one who created the "Orb of Torpedo".
  • Ms. Exposition /Spirit Advisor: She acts as Kimiko's guide in the spirit world when the latter is chosen to be the first dragon rider of her generation.

    Barkey Le Bois 

    Chucky Choo 

Chucky Choo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_14.png
Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche
A mystical dragon who also happens to be a very sleazy con artist. Dojo hates Chucky because many years ago, Chucky cheated Dojo out of his cherished family yo-yo. Chucky is willing to scam anyone whether they are on the Xiaolin or Heylin side.
  • Alliterative Name: Both his first and last name start with Ch.
  • Hawaiian-Shirted Tourist: Despite being a Chinese dragon, Chucky often wears what appears to be a hawaiian shirt.
  • JerkAss: He scams and betrays a lot of people and is even a huge jerk towards Dojo, cheating him out of his family yo-yo years ago and faking an apology by giving him a fake replica, hence the reason why Dojo hates Chucky.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Played for laughs in a subtextual example. Dojo accidentally dragged Chucky into his bath as he was overjoyed when Chucky gave Dojo the yo-yo back. The monks walk in on Dojo and chucky hugging each other in the bath and the instantly leave. Nothing was said in this scene but the monks, especially Kimiko give off very weird looks that obviously give off the vibe that they think Chucky loves Dojo.

    Rocco 

Rocco

Voiced by: David Kaye

    Keiko 

Villains

    Le Mime 

Le Mime

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_16.png

A 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 episode "Chucky Choo" buying fake Shen Gong Wu from the titular character, and in the first part of the series finale, being enslaved by Jack Spicer.
  • Enemy Mime: Particularly in Chronicles, where he's more evil and threatening, as well as much more powerful.
  • Everyone Hates Mimes: Both sides find him deeply irritating. Hilariously lampshaded by Clay, who says that the moral of the second episode is that everyone hates mimes, ignoring the other's suggestions.
  • 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.
  • Suddenly Voiced: Despite being a mime, he speaks for the first time in Xiaolin Chronicles.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In the original series his only power was to create invisible walls and imitate a person's movements down to a t. In Xiaolin Chronicles, he can not only use his imagination to create weapons that actually injure but he could also create traps with his mime powers and he had assembled an army of Mini Mooks who can also use all the basic abilities he has.
  • The Voiceless: Being a mime, Le Mime never speaks. Averted in Xiaolin Chronicles, in which he spat out the location of the Shen Gong Wu after a brief torture session by Clay.
  • 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.

    Dyris 

Dyris

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_19.png
Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

A beautiful mermaid who seeks to make the world underwater.


  • 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.
  • Walking Spoiler: There's a reason why most of her stuff is spoilered.

    Salvador Cumo 

Salvador Cumo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_21_8.png
Voiced by: David Kaye
A dangerous criminal whom the monks were instructed to escort to Lapitraz, the most secure prison in the world.
  • Artifact of Power: He's shown wearing the Jitsusara Amulet when first introduced. At the end of the episode, he gives it Raimundo as a token of gratitude.
  • The Charmer: His manipulation consists of complimenting others and praising them for their feats. He does to each monk, paying particular attention to Raimundo.
  • Consummate Liar: Salvador manages to convince Raimundo that his life of crime was the result of a bad childhood that snowballed. That later turns out to be false the moment he escapes the monks when the opportunity comes, with no remorse.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He manages to sweep the floor with all the monks in his Komodo dragon form – at least until Omi defeated him using the Orb of Torpedo.
  • Freudian Excuse: When he was younger, Salvador was forced to work in a sweatshop that he gradually became fed up with. From there everything spiraled into his current life of crime.
  • Healing Factor: He has the ability to separate limbs and regenerate them. He does this to his arm when escaping the monks.
  • Ironic Name: Salvador, which is Spanish for "saviour", sounds unexpectedly heroic for a traitor villain like him.
  • Not So Different: He claims he and Raimundo are not so different, going as far as pointing out the pair have the same childhood that was rather miserable.
  • Meaningful Name: "Cumo" is a pun on "komodo", fitting his powers of transforming into a lizard.
  • Scaled Up: He can transform into a Komodo dragon.
  • Unreliable Narrator: Considering he's known to be manipulative and saying what people want to hear, among other things, the backstory he told Raimundo may have just been him trying to get under his skin.
  • Villainous Friendship: Wuya apparently used to know him from the "good old days" and Chase Young seems to know him as well, as he's seen telepathically communicating with Salvador after his showdown with Omi.

    Pandabubba's Henchmen 

Pandabubba's Henchmen

  • 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.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Both wear a fancy suit, a white one and a black one respectively.
  • Bald of Evil: The henchman in the white suit, though it's technically a queue, so not entirely bald.
  • Co-Dragons: They work for Pandabubba in helping him with his crimes.
  • Cool Shades: Both of them wear matching black shades.
  • No Name Given: They're not addressed by any name.
  • 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.
  • Villain in a White Suit: The white-suited henchman is dressed almost completely in white. He and his partner are both classy, stoic criminals who work for the wealthiest man in Hong Kong.

    Raksha 

Raksha

Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche
A 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.
  • Defeat Equals Explosion: Explodes into a blizzard after losing the Heart of Jong in a showdown.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Despite speaking in the third person, everyone calls him "Snowman"- even the scoreboard in the episode's Showdown just called him Snowman!
  • Evil Laugh: Does one consisting of yodeling
  • An Ice Person: To an extent though namely it comes to his snow.
  • The Night That Never Ends: Using the Lunar Locket, Raksha moved the moon so that it would always block the sun, creating a land of perpetual darkness, cold, and snow.
  • Snowlems: Brought to life through the Heart of Jong.
  • Third-Person Person: His catch phrase "Give Raksha Shen Gong Wu!" is an example of this.
  • 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.

    Sibini 

Sibini

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_18.png
A malicious trickster scorpion-like creature who was sealed within the Mosaic Scale.
  • Demonic Possession: Possesses Clay to cause mischief.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A parasitic spirit that has been trapped within the Mosaic Scale for thousands of years.
  • One-Winged Angel: Turns into a larger version of himself 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.
  • The Unintelligible: When he's not possessing anyone, he speaks in gibberish.

    Gigi 

Gigi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_20.png
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett
The Heylin Plant, named by Jack Spicer as Gigi, is the plant that sprouted from the Heylin seed.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He is a goofy flower with a hilarious French accent, but there was a reason he was sealed away. He can turn people into plans and pretty much have them at his mercy.
  • Breath Weapon: How he turns people on plants.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A monsterous demonic plant entity that can turn other people into plants.
  • French Jerk: He's on the side of Heylin and has an exaggerated French accent.
  • Green Thumb: As a result of being a living demonic plant. He can manipulate his vines and turn people into plants.
  • Nightmare Face: When angered his face becomes one resembling a carnivorous flower and speaks on a Voice of the Legion.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: As the Heylin seed. Should not be let near water, soil or sunlight.

    The Sapphire Dragon 

The Sapphire Dragon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/resized_17.png

A particularly dangerous Shen 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 Shen Gong Wu.
  • Dreamweaver: In the episode The 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, with Omi being the only one to get anywhere close to putting up a decent fight against it, as well as Master Fung 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 dragon's will.
  • Silent Antagonist: Beyond the sound it makes when it breathes blue-fire, it doesn't even whisper. Neither do its slaves.
  • Technicolor Fire: The dragon's Breath Weapon is, of course, sapphire blue.
  • 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.
    • The fact that it is a Shen Gong Wu means that when it's caught in a showdown, its opponent can force it to wager itself, and return to its dormant state if beaten. Additionally, while not shown in the show itself, this likely means that the Emperor Scorpion (a Shen Gong Wu that controls other Shen Gong Wu and entities made from them like Mala Mala Jong) would be able to control the Sapphire Dragon.
