  • Yay, four shen gong wu.

    9.6
    At the start of the episode, Raimundo, Kimiko and Clay aren't getting along very well despite Omi trying to make them work together. When four shen gong wu reavel themselves at the same time, they decide to split up and retrieve them, not wanting to be around eachother anyways. Kimiko ends up in a swamp fighting Katnappe for the Lotus Twister, Raimuundo meets Chamillion bot in a deserted island and they fight for the Longi Kite, Clay comes into a tundra to fight Tubbimura for the Tongue of Saiping and Omi fights Jack in a desert for the Sun Chi Lantern. When Kimiko, Raimundo and Clay are defeated they get captured and Omi who is the only one to win his fight goes to save them and retrieve the shen gong wu. They start to get along.moreless
  • 4 new wu!

    10
    No new wu have been activated for weeks. Then, Dojo and Wuya sense 4 new ones activating at the same time. Jack calls on 3 former associates to assist in obtaining these wu. The monks have been on each others' nerves for a while, so they are glad to go their seperate ways to retrieve the 4 new wu: Lotus Twister (Kimiko), Longi Kite (Raimundo), Tongue of Saiping (Clay) and the Sun Chi Lantern(Omi). Each monk faces off against a bad guy, but in the end only Omi wins and manages to recover both the Sun Chi Lantern and Jack's Monkey Staff (in addition to the Star Hanabi, which he waged but didn't use). He and Dojo learn that Jack Spicer and his lackies have kidnapped the others, so they go off to save them. Omi only brings the Sun Chi Lantern, though, and when it looks like Omi has lost he uses the wu amd manages to save his friends. The monks are now friends again, and they go off with some of Jack's wu (1 each).moreless
  • Four shen gong wu at one time!

    9.5
    At the start of the episode, Raimundo, Kimiko and Clay aren't getting along very well despite Omi trying to make them work together. When four shen gong wu reavel themselves at the same time, they decide to split up and retrieve them, not wanting to be around eachother anyways. So basically, everyone gets to handle their own thing. Kimiko ends up in a swamp fighting Katnappe for the Lotus Twister, Raimuundo meets Chamillion bot in a deserted island and they fight for the Longi Kite, Clay comes into a tundra to fight Tubbimura for the Tongue of Saiping and Omi fights Jack in a desert for the Sun Chi Lantern. When Kimiko, Raimundo and Clay are defeated they get captured and Omi who is the only one to win his fight goes to save them and retrieve the shen gong wu. They start to get along, like they should.moreless
  • 4 Shen gong wu!! activating at the same time!!!

    10
    The first shen gong wu is the lotus twister witch can turn your limbs into flexible rubber. Witch kimiko fought katnappe for in a swamp (kimiko's Mantis flip coin agenst katnappe's tangle web comb). the longi kite can let you fly with the wings of a dragon. which raimundo fought cameleon bot version 2.0 on a deserted island (raimundo's Falcons eye vs. cameleons bot's two ton tunic (unused)). The tounge of siping allows its user be able to talk with animals. Clay fought tubbimura for it in a very cold place (Serpents tail agenst changing chopsticks) and the sun chi lanter can control the chi of anyone alluminated by the lanters glow. omi fought jack for it in a desert (The star hanabi (unused) agenst jack's monkey staff (Omi won)). Yeah...................That was a goooooood episodemoreless
  • This episode is about when 4 shen-gong-wu appear at the same time and so now Omi won his xiaolin showdown but his other friends are captured by Jack's assistence.

    9.0
    No Shen-Gong-wu have been revealed for a few weeks making the Xiaolin Warriors edgy. Suddenly, 4 Shen-Gong-Wu are revealed at the same time. In order to accomplish this task, the Warriors split up. Kimiko goes to a swamp, Raimundo to a beach, Clay to the Arctic, and Omi to a desert. However, Jack and Wuya are also trying to get these new Shen-Gong-Wu. Katnappé, Tubbimura, and the Chameleon-Bot decide to help Jack and Wuya track them down. My favorite part of this episode is when Omi tries to get all of his friends back from Jack and the other villains.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (14)

    • Kimiko's outfit: A black t-shirt with ripped sleeves at the end, orange vest, a brownish beige backpack, beige shorts with many pockets, a wristband that is the same color as the shorts, orange baggy socks, and hiking boots with laces.
      Kimiko's hairstyle: Red, tied in a ponytail with an alligator hair-clip/bobble.

    • This episode marks the only time the Sun Chi Lantern is ever used.

    • When Omi is breaking into Jacks compound one of the trees Omi passes has a peace sign drawn in it.

    • Kimiko claims that Clay was blocking her sunlight with his huge shadow while they were meditating, but everyone's shadow was beneath them.

    • Except for Jack, who wagered (although he didn't actually say so) the Monkey Staff, none of the villians wagered or used any Shen Gong Wu. Omi used the Orb of Tornami and won the Monkey Staff from Jack; Kimiko used the Mantis Flip Coin; Raimundo used the Falcon's Eye; Clay used the Serpant's Tail. Even some Shen Gong Wu were used, no one ever actually verbally wagered any (revision: Tubbimura used the Changing Chopsticks to get accross the thin ice.)

    • In the beginning, when everyone is complaining about their team mates, Kimiko says that Clay complains about Raimundo's music and that he doesn't understand a thing. Suspecting from Rai's nature, the music should be mostly rap and some rock in it and should probably be Brazilian and English. Since rap is fast in words and Rai probably has them in Brazilian, how can Clay even understand them to begin with?

    • When Omi goes into the temple looking for the others, his head is oval shaped like Dashi's and Guan's.

    • Since Dojo would have been the one to bring Clay, Raimundo and Kimiko back to the temple wouldn't he have known that they wouldn't be there and would have been able to tell Omi that they wouldn't be there?

    • The Sun Chi Lantern unites the chi of anyone in its light. So when Omi activates it in the basement why doesn't it unite the chi of the bad guys as well as Kimiko, Clay and Raimundo?

    • When Kimiko and Katnappé were both holding the Lotus Twister, Kimiko's hair was brown with an alligator hairclip, looking Australian. When they entered the showdown, her hair was black with two ponytails and she was wearing her robes. (Reply: Well obviously when the warriors go in a showdown they go into their robes just like all the other times.)

    • Katnappé calls Kimiko on her cellphone by asking the operator to connect her with Kimiko Toho. However, in "The Return of Pandabubba," we find out her full name is Kimiko Tohomiko. So, wouldn't Katnappé have been connected to a different number as she didn't give the full name? (Reply: The writers could've forgotten that they first made Kimiko's last name Toho.)

    • Before Katnappé says, "Looks like we're gator hopping," her tail is missing.

    • Omi won the showdown against Jack, so he should have gotten the Monkey Staff. But when Jack leaves, he has the Staff.

    • Katnappé couldn't possibly know Kimiko's surname! (Reply: Katnappé could have looked it up. She's a master thief, so she could have snuck into several places to find information on Kimiko.)

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Jack: This plan wouldn't have worked if I didn't lose my showdown in the first place. Wait ... that didn't come out right.

    • Jack: How can I concentrate on making new robots without pudding?!

    • Dojo (the Xiaolin Warriors land on his back): Oof! Oof! Oof! Oof! Four oofs. That's all of 'em.

    • (Finds his three partners)
      Omi: My friends! Hearing the sound of your voices again will give me tremendous pleasure.
      (Takes off their gags)
      Kimiko: Omi!
      Clay: Run!
      Raimundo: It's a trap!
      Omi: That did not give me as much pleasure as I had hoped.

    • Omi: Kimiko! Raimundo! Clay! Check me in, my friends! I have severely trounced up and down Jack Spicer's buttocks! (Meaning he kicked Jack's butt)

    • Jack: (talking about the spider-bots) They're upgrades. Get it? Upgrades - 'cause they're tall.
      Omi: Your joke is most obvious, Jack Spicer.

    • (Dojo and Omi arrive at the desert)
      Dojo: Hot. Cold. Hot again. Honestly, I don't know how to dress today. What is a dragon to do?

    • (Tubbimura arrives)
      Tubbimura: Someone mention there would be pudding cups?

    • Wuya: You should be focusing on gathering Shen-Gong-Wu, not pudding.
      Jack: What Shen-Gong-Wu? You haven't sensed any in weeks. Probably been too busy scarfing down other people's pudding cups!
      Wuya: I'm ghostly! I don't eat.
      Jack: Well, technically, you don't sweat either. But you still manage to put off some serious B.O., sister.
      Wuya: I'm surprised you can smell anything considering how often you have your little fingers up your nostrils!

    • Omi: While we bicker, the forces of darkness are most certainly growing stronger.
      (Cut to Jack)
      Jack: Who ate the last pudding cup?!
