Characters that had a major appearance in a single episode within both series.
The Bailey Family
- 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.
- 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 / Super Cow Patty
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
- Doting Parent: As Kimiko's wealthy father, he made sure that as a kid she got every toy ever made. However, she had to beg him to buy her clothes.
- Eccentric Millionaire: While he does seem to enjoy having fun and shower his guests with gifts, Toshiro can be straight-laced when needed.
- Honest Corporate Executive: Owns one of the largest video game companies in the world and has the heart of a saint.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Looks exactly like one Satoru Iwata. His silliness may have been based on Shigeru Miyamoto as well.
- One of the Kids: A more mature, game-loving version of this who is quite happy to show his inner child.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: When he learns of the true identity of Pandabubba, he does not hesitate to kick him out. Too bad said "partner" has the Zing Zom-Bone.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: The fact that Kimiko calls him to get into the emperor's palace in "Tangled Web" implies that Toshiro has a powerful or influential pull in society.
Tomoko Tohomiko / Tigress Woo
- Alliterative Name: With a "T".
- Badass Normal: Is shown relying on gadgets and normal human skills instead of magical powers and talismans.
- Cool Big Sis: Tries to be this to Kimiko. It Works.
- Reverse Mole: Pretended to spy on the monks but she turns out to be on the side of good.
- When You Coming Home, Sis?: Her job as an international spy leaves her with almost no time to spend with Kimiko.
The Spicer Family
- 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.
- 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.
A hunter who was seeking the evil mermaid Dyris.
- Anti-Hero: He's rather trigger-happy since his first appearance has him shoot explosives at Dyris when the Xiaolin Dragons just saved her from the freezing water, so they naturally defend her from him. He's also quite scary-looking. Once Dyris' true nature gets elaborated on, he's firmly in the right.
- Badass Beard: A large, shaggy black one.
- Badass Normal: Gets by purely on his weapons and strength, yet manages to curb stomp the monks and fight against Dyris in her true form.
- Blade on a Stick: A trident which can fire explosives and extend the other end which can be used as a vice.
- The Big Guy: In his sole-episode episode, his strength eclipses everyone - he beats the Xiaolin warriors and easily gets to grips with Dyris' enormous land-form and holds it.
- Dark Is Not Evil: With his black Wild Hair, enormous size and shaggy appearance, he's kinda intimidating. However, he's trying to stop a monster from flooding the entire world.
- Deadpan Snarker: The monks collectively state how they unwittingly aided Dyris in her plans to flood the world...Klofange: "Hmmm. You sure you lot are the good guys?"
- Eye Patch Of Power: His Peek-a-Bangs are hiding what appears to be a dead red-colored eye.
- Good Is Not Nice: At his first glance, he is violent and ruthless since his first appearance has him shoot explosives at Dyris when the Xiaolin Dragons just saved her from the freezing water. But later, he reveals himself as a good guy who is trying to stop the evil mermaid (Dyris) from flooding the entire world.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: His right-eye has two cool and fairly straight scars going over it.
- Hero of Another Story: He and Dyris have seemingly already fought several times by the time he was unfrozen in his only episode.
- Heroic Sacrifice: While he doesn't exactly die, he is frozen alongside Dyris at the end of the episode.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's understandably very angry that the monks basically provided the means for Dyris to escape, but he does admit that Omi did well at defeating Dyris.
- Lightning Bruiser: Along with enormous size and power, he runs and jumps along builds with ease and catches a broken statue thrown at him and spins around once to toss it back.
- Peek-a-Bangs: Over his right eye.
- Red Right Hand: Averted Trope, as the showing of his scary eye from under his Peek-a-Bangs happens long after his heroic intentions are revealed.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: His right-eye is a strange shade of red. However, he's a good guy.
- Taking You with Me: He holds Dyris with him as the iceberg they're on collapses, causing them both to be frozen in ice in the arctic ocean.
- Top-Heavy Guy: His abdomen is even very narrow right at the top of that area compared to his breast and shoulders (roughly a third of their size from left-to-right), making the cutoff point of his body's larger mass higher up than most examples of Top-Heavy Guy.
- Walking Spoiler: Judging by the amount of spoilers...
- 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 couldnt 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.
- 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.
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.
A beautiful mermaid who seeks to make the world underwater.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: At first, the Xiaolin warriors thought she was just a Distressed Damsel and Klofange the villain.
- Dude Magnet: Klofang was the only dude that wasn't smitten with her, really.
- Eldritch Abomination: Her form outside of water. Klofange even says that no man should ever see it twice.
- One-Winged Angel: On land, she transforms into her monstrous true form.
- Our Mermaids Are Different: She could survive on dry land, but at the cost of becoming a hideous monster.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: She was trapped into a block of ice along with the Good All Along Klofange.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
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.
