After the creature takes Kimiko, Raimundo and Clay's chi, Dojo and Jack devise a plan on getting it back along with trapping the Chi guardian back in the Ying-Yang world.

    I thought this episode rocked! It almost took my breath away. I almost cried when Raimundo got his chi taken away. OMG! Chase Young is such a jerk! I still want to know is, why didn't Dojo and Good Jack bring the chi-less trio (Raimundo, Kimiko, and Clay) back to the temple? I mean, how did those three end up at Chase's lair? I wish there was a Xiaolin Showdown DVD collection, then I would watch a missing scene on how they ended up there. Anyway, I go to admit Rai did seem kind of cute without his chi. Oh, wait, nevermind, I liked him when Raimundo has his chi.moreless

  • Cool episode.

    This was such a good way to start off the new season. For starters, Omi's good again. Chase was defeated and all 4 warriors get to advance to the next level. Pretty great episode. One not-so-good thing about this episode was the fact that they used Dojo as the ball for their game of soccer. That had to hurt, couldn't they just use a regular soccer ball or something? Either way it's nice to have Omi back. Overall this was a great episode. I wonder what's going to happen the rest of the season. So, in conclusion, Omi's Return+All 4 warriors advance=great episode.moreless

  • This episode is about turning Omi back into a nice guy.

    Omi is still evil, his friends try to turn him back to normal, Chase has dots that were on Omi's forehead, Master Fung is in a full body cast, Jack Spicer acts kind, Dojo sense a strange presence (The translucent character that emerged out of the Ying-Yang world was the Chi Creature). They trapped the monster into the Sphere of Yun. My favorite part of this episode is when well the whole thing because this episode was so cool. If you ask me I would say that this episode is very good and that everyone should have liked this episode but if not then oh well.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (15)

    • Look Closely: During the soccer showdown, in order to prevent the Xiaolin Warriors from winning by using the Dragon X-Kumei formation, one of Chase's warriors tried to use an army tank to block their way, but failed.

    • During the soccer showdown,during one part Raimundo says Sword of the Storm, instead of saying Typhoon Boom, even though he wasn't using any Shen-Gong-Wu.

    • If The Reversing Mirror was used on the Fountain Of Hui and the Eagle Scope, it should have given them false information about the Spiders.
      Reply: Chase used the reversing mirror when Omi was looking for a way to destroy evil.

    • How come Dragon-X-Kumei Formation failed without Omi? It worked without Raimundo in The Last Temptation of Raimundo.
      (Reply: The warriors only got in formation. They never used it.)

    • Why were Kimiko, Raimundo and Clay at Chase lair serving him after having their Chi sucked? Did Chase pick them up or something?

    • Kimiko and Jack leave Master Fung the Silk Spitter, Glove of Jisaku and Reversing Mirror, but he only uses the Silk Spitter against Chase.

    • How come the chi creature plays around with good Jack instead of sucking his chi out right then and there?
      (Reply: Maybe the Chi Creature can't suck out someone's chi in the Ying-Yang world.)

    • The Camera was always on Omi and Chase when they were using the Fountain of Hui/Eagle Scope Combo in "Dangerous Minds" but in "Finding Omi" Chase says he used to Reversing Mirror but we saw him at ALL times. ( Reply: He was standing there with one hand behind his back, his body was wide enough to cover it).

    • It never explains how Jack got out of the Sphere of Yun (Reply: Jack has had the sphere of yun since The Black Vipers.)

    • In the beginning of the show, we see Katnappe, Tubbimura, Vlad, and Cyclops being launched while tied to a board. Why would Katnappe be launched if she never joined Chase's crew?

    • The prison from the Sphere of Yun in this episode is different from the one in The New Order. And once again, it is not invisible.

    • It is revealed that Chase Young used the Reversing Mirror when Omi looked at the answer to defeating evil. Where did he get the Reversing Mirror? (Reply: Either Jack or Katnappe gave it to him in The Apprentice).

    • In Xiaolin Soccer it's against the rules to touch the ball with your hands but, one of Chases warrior cats touched the ball with their hands. So that should have been a penalty. (That is a rule in regular soccer. And besides, that was not the first time anyone cheated during a Xiaolin Showdown).

    • After Jack Spicer got his evil chi back from the Ying-Yang World, he was back to wearing his black coat instead of wearing his vested shirt. And his hair style went from smooth to spiky. How was that possible? Unless without any evil inside him, his appearance might have changed suddenly.

    • In the 'Previously on Xiaolin Showdown' at the beginning of the episode Omi used the Yang Yo-Yo but the Yang Yo-Yo wasn't found until the next episode, Saving Omi, and Omi used it in the flashback in the episode Judging Omi.

  • QUOTES (21)

    • Chase Young: You fight well for someone with brittle bones. But not well enough.
      (kicks Master Fung into the temple and he starts drooling).

    • Chase: I KNEW I should've devoured you when I had the chance!
      Dojo: Uh...not a bad idea... I think I may be coming down with something... (coughs) Could be contagious... (ducks into Clay's hat)
      (Raimundo steps forward, and glares angrily at Chase)
      Raimundo: According to the ancient scrolls, we have the right to challenge you for Omi's freedom!
      Chase: And what do you wish to wager?
      Raimundo: The only thing you'd be willing to play for...our eternal loyalty.
      Omi Cat: No! I cannot allow you to do this for me!
      Chase: I accept your offer. But NO Shen-gong-wu! You will rely ONLY on your martial arts skills!
      (Chase's big cats surround the Warriors)
      Raimundo: The game is Xiaolin Soccer! The first to score four points wins. You and your jungle cats, against the four of us!
      Chase: (Raises an eyebrow) The FOUR?
      Raimundo: That's right! Omi Cat is playing with US!
      (Upon hearing this, a huge smile lights up on Omi Cat's face, and he leaps off the platform to rejoin his friends.)

    • Raimundo: (back to his old self, after drinking his chi potion) Hey! What's going on?! Why am I washing Chase's underwear?!
      Dojo: Theres no time to explain!

    • Chi-less Clay: (mopping floor) floor must be clean enough to eat off of (licks floor) almost there.
      (Dojo gives Clay his chi back)(Raimundo holds Kimiko and gives her back her chi)
      Kimiko: (stands up off Raimundo) This is way to crepy.

    • Dojo: Are you crazy? if you go in to the Ying-Yang world with only the Ying Yo-Yo; you'll turn evil again (pauses to think) actually that would be an improvemen.

    • Raimundo: Master Fung, is there am way to save Omi??
      Master Fung: You must challenge Chase Young for Omi's freedom. But if you lose, all hope will be lost (pause) like the feeling in my legs (pause).

    • Master Fung: (with no Chi) Water that is too pure has no fish in it.

    • (After Good Jack uses the Ring of the Nine Dragons to split himself in two)
      Good Jack 1: I'll distract the Chi Creature, while you go get the chi, Jack.
      Good Jack 2: Good thinking, Jack! And by the way, it's a pleasure to call you Jack, Jack!

    • Dojo: (tearfully) I wish there was something I could do!
      Good Jack: Actually, there is! I will need a goat, with which to draw out the Chi Creature!
      Dojo: Okay, but where am I going to find a goat?
      (Scene jumps to see Dojo dressed like a goat, surrounded by signs saying there's a goat nearby.)
      Dojo: (goatlike) Jaaack? Oh I don't think this was such a good idea.... Jaaack? Jaaack?(the chi creature appears,as Dojo trembles)
      Good Jack:Ying yo-yo!(he and the chi creature go in the portal)Ring of Nine Dragons!

    • Kimiko: Here Master Fung, you can use my laptop computer to talk to us.
      Master Fung (computerized): Ow! Ow! Ow! Thank you Kimiko.

    • (Master Fung is growling in pain after Dojo and Good Jack accidentally pour coffee on him)
      Dojo: He's probably saying, 'It's okay, I know you mean well'...

    • Good Jack: Don't worry every one, I know you can win.
      Rai: And what makes you so sure?
      Good Jack: (prancing around) Because you have the power good on your side. And when you have that, you've got the world on a string! (Does a stage slide. Everyone takes a step away from Jack.)

    • Chase Young: I knew I should've devoured you when I had the chance!

    • Chase and Omi: (In the showdown) Dog Flipping tail! Horse Skipping Pebble! Cat Playing Fiddle! Duck Flipping Furnace!
      Omi: Sparrow eating hotdog!
      Chase: (Confused) Sparrow eating hot dog?

    • Reptilian Chase: Sparrow eating hotdog???

    • Omi: I am most pleased ... and most confused. You said only one of us would rise.
      Master Fung: That is correct. Only one would rise ... but not until you worked together as one.
      Dojo: I don't know about you, but I think he makes this stuff up as he goes along.

    • Reptilian Chase: It appears I have taught you well.
      Omi Cat: No. It appears that you have taught me too well!

    • Human Wuya: Oh, poor little kitty witty, here's a ball of yarn, knot yourself out.
      (throws ball of yarn to Omi Cat)
      Omi Cat (playing with ball of yarn): I have no idea why but I find this ball of yarn most fascinating.

    • (Chase is petting Omi Cat)
      Omi Cat: *purr* *purr* I must warn you that my purring is not a sign that I approve of your actions. I just like having my ears scracthed, Again pleeese?!

    • Omi Cat: One time you were on the side of good, maybe there is still good inside you.
      (Chase destroys lots of land)
      Chase: Don't think so.

    • Dojo: We're too late, they've been de-chied.

  • NOTES (33)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Omi: I know there is still good in you.
      This is a spoof from Star Wars Episode VI, when Luke Skywalker says to Darth Vader "There is still good inside you" The same way Omi does to Chase. (Only difference is different replies from Darth Vader and Chase.)

    • Good Jack : Gene Kelly
      When Jack Spicer becomes good, he becomes an awful lot like Gene Kelly. Dressed the same, prancing around the same, even overly dramtic like Gene kelly was in all the musical movies of the 50's. You can even hear that cheery 50's style music as he is prancing around.

    • Chi Guardian: Visual
      The way the Gaurdian eats the warriors chi may be a reference to the dementors in the Harry Potter books. Their attacks leave people soulless like the warriors were.

    • Xiaolin Soccer
      The showdown: Xiaolin Soccer is a pun off of the 2004 movie Shaolin Soccer.
