In ancient times, the first Xiaolin Dragon battled the legendary witch Wuya. Good prevailed, and the Xiaolin sacred power objects--the Shen Gong Wu--were hidden throughout the earth. These mystical objects are the keys to controlling good and evil. Each object possesses unique supernatural powers and can only be captured through a "showdown." Now four fearless warriors-- Omi, Kimiko, Raimundo and Clay--have been called to protect the Shen Gong Wu from evil forces. With Dojo, their cantankerous dragon guide, this foursome travels the globe in search of the elusive artifacts. Complicating the young warriors quest are Wuya, who was recently freed from eternal captivity, and her protégé, Jack Spicer Evil Boy Genius, who want control of the Shen Gong Wu for their own wicked plans. Featuring heart-stopping showdowns of gravity-defying feats, Xiaolin Showdown is a fantastical adventure with the soul of a comedy.]]>

All right, down to business. Other reviews have covered the basics so I'll gloss over them quickly. Four kids--Clay, Kimiko, Raimundo and Omi--are brought to a temple in China, to train as warriors and locate magical artifacts. These artifacts were de-powered and hidden all over the world thousands of years ago, but are regaining their magical potency one by one. The young warriors must find them before they fall into the wrong hands. Those hands belong to an evil boy genius, his nagging ghost mentor, and a host of other interesting villains.
The artifacts give powers to whoever is holding them at the time, and I have to applaud the creators coming up with such an assortment of pleasing things. They can let you talk to animals, stretch yourself like chewing gum, summon a whirlwind, blast fire, or fool with the workings of space and time. Most artifacts require skill and discipline to use correctly. Some give you a new ability, but take away one that you already had. Others backfire. A few are too dangerous to be used at all. The characters have to think about using them; they can't just flail them around.
But the show isn't just about finding and mastering weapons--it's also about finding and mastering yourself. And while cartoons that moralize really rub me the wrong way, I approve this time. The characters learn to find the rational way to approach a problem, and even better, consider how their own strengths and weaknesses factor into a situation.Read more ›
I like the characters and the way that they have attitude! It's actually just the whole cartoon that is awesome. It's funny and it takes awhile, but you can actually get into the plot (unlike some where it takes like FOREVER). It's just totally and completly AWESOME!!!!!!!! Watch it!!!!
This show is about a group of teenagers living under the guidance of monks that are saving the world by collecting all the mystical items called the sen-gong-yu from evil forces of Yu-ya and Jack Spicer. And when two forces get the items, a Xiaolin Showdown happens. I do not want to spoil anything of the first season or the series in general because this show is pretty awesome.
I loved watching it as a kid and even as an adult now I still love show. Why because it has action scenes that have life in them, characters that you actually care about, writing that is tight as a seatbelt, and humor that actually works (including the dragon called Do-go, love him).
If you love anime as much I do, you may love this show. If you are looking some action cartoons, then I highly recommend you this tv series.
Here's the who's who on the show:
Omi - A young dragon-in-training who is confident in his training at the Xiaolin temple. Unfortunately, he can't keep up with the times.
Raimundo - A hip Brazillian boy who usually plays it cool, although his attitude sometimes interferes with his teammates.
Clay - A down-home fella from Texas who is usually calm and steady in his training.
Kimiko - A Japanese girl who never wears the same outfit twice in each episode. She's very high-tech and fashionable, though she's never taken too seriously.
Master Fung - The mentor of Omi and the others with lots of philosophy to boot.
Dojo - A witty, yet stubborn dragon who can grow gigantic in size for transporting the young monks.
Jack Spicer - A sinister boy genius with a love of robotics. To me, he's really a wimp.
Wuya - The spirit of the Heylin witch who seeks revenge and get as much Shen Gong Wu as she can.
So join our young heroes in thirteen action and laugh packed episodes spanning their travels and their tribulations. The two disc set is worth buying for, even if there's not much in special features. Inevitably, this series is very nice if you like shows like "Teen Titans" or something like that.
