  • The ultimate evil's debut episode!

    7.7
    Chase Young debuted in this episode. According to my friend, Chase is the ultimate villain in the entire series.



    The whole idea of the episode was pretty vague, in my opinion. Nothing really happened, except the whole concept that Dojo was captured and taken to Chase. However, I believe the writers wanted this episode to be more of a character development one.



    Another character who makes his debut is Master Monk Guan. Guan fought Chase a very long time ago, and he ended up being defeated. However, in this episode, Guan gets his revenge and ends up defeating Guan in a regular showdown (no Shen Gong Wu used).



    In result, Chase releases Dojo. The whole reason Chase captured Dojo was because dragons are an important ingredient in a soup that makes Chase immortal.



    Overall, this episode was average. I have seen better. I was kind of hoping for a Xiaolin Showdown and that the gang would win a new Shen Gong Wu, but they didn't.moreless

  • i though the introduction of CY was really awesome

    10
    i think that this episode was awesome cause they introduced the biggest vilain in the show...Chase Young....

    he is not just stupid bad guy like some certain movies or shows have made that are not really bad people just people who everyone thinks are evil cause they are not goody-goodies like them or people wh oare able to do a bad thing and suddenly they are pure evil...? Sometimes, they make villains that are not really villains but people that are annoying or jerky.

    Anyways, i think that he is a cool villain and should rule the world but if i do fangirls will chase me out of town...again...moreless
  • A new villain, Chase Young. A new goodie, Master Monk Guan. A bit overwhelming, but quite okay.

    7.5
    First, not much substance. The warriors convince Guan that one should be noble and righteous always and never waver to the bad side. Not what I call a moral. Second, the story of Chase turning to the bad side and taking away the Spear of Guan is kinda pathetic. Third, we finally realise that the warriors do care for Dojo, after all that he's done for them. That's a plus point, although we should've known long ago. Fourth point, I wasn't very impressed by the fight scenes. Fifth, Master Monk Guan is ugly and Chase Young is monstrous. Last hopefully, this episode was mildly entertaining.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • How can Master Guan still be living if he fought against Wuya with Dashi?

    • Isn't that weird that after Master Monk Guan used the repel the beast technique against Chase and that he was in his lizard form, he retransformed himself without drinking the Lao Mang Lon.

    • Guan says Chase gave up his soul to live forever but in the episode "The Life and Times of Hannibal Roy Bean" Dojo says that Chase gave up his soul to be the best.

    • In the beginning, the Lasso Boa Boa looks like a large snake, but when Clay shouts out "Lasso Boa Boa!" the Boa looks like his regular lasso, not the Shen Gon Wu.

  • QUOTES (12)

  • NOTES (17)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Chase's armour looks very similar to the Saiyan combat suits in Dragonball Z. With the shoulder and thigh guards, the lines going through them, and chest designs on the front.

    • Chase Young, in many ways has references to "Masters of the Universe". His lair has the same color scems as Snake Mountain(Skeletor's home), has big cats(like He-man and Skeletor), and he can change between human and reptile form(like King Hsss).

    • The mirror battle in Chase's palace is similar to the one Bruce Lee experiences in Enter the Dragon.

    • Chase selling his soul for dark knowledge
      There is a German tale about a man named Faust who sold his soul and body after 24 years to the Devil if he would serve Faust for his life, tell Faust anything he wished, and never to lie to Faust. Faust gave a blood sacrifice and renounced his Christian faith to seal the pact.

    • The demon Chase Young gives his soul to: the devil or a pagan god? In Christianity, the demon shown is known as Satan. In truth, the goat demon was originally a pagan god of feritility, but was warped by the Christians to make paganism seem evil, and, therefore, stamp it out. If you go by the pagan beliefs, Chase shouldn't have been granted immortality, as that isn't what the god represents. (Reply: The God Chase got his youth potion off is merely what Master Monk Guan thinks what happened. It is revealed in a later episode that Chase was turned evil and given the potion by Hannibal Roy Bean).

    • n/a: Guan and Spear of Guan
      Guan Yu was a military commander of the Han Dynasty in China. He has been somewhat canonised as a god-like being because of his exaggerated deeds and qualities. He was a skilled military man and was very respected by his soldiers. Guan Yu also exceled at the use of his weapon, the Kwandao (aka Guandao). The Kwandao is a spear-like weapon with a crecsent moon blade at the tip instead of the actual spear that kind of resembles a halberd. A modern cartoon drawing of a Kwandao can be seen on the anime show Shaman King, where a main character, Lenny, uses the Kwandao when he fights. Guan Yu's Kwandao was legendary, called the "green dragon crescent moon" and weighing at an estimated 49 kg.
