    Every thousand years, the Shen-Gong-Wu form Mala Mala Jong on their own. Mala Mala Jong's new quest is to use the Ring of Nine Dragons to form into the Fearsome Four. Now, he travels to find the Emperor Scorpion in order to control all the Shen-Gong-Wu. Will the Warriors be able to defeat Jong once more? Well the answer is yes. My favorite part of this episode is when Kimiko Raimundo, Omi and Clay try to fight Mala Mala Jong because there was a lot of action in that part of this episode. I hope you liked this episode very, very much.moreless
  • This episode was okay...

    8.0
    This episode was fairly good. Better than most episodes in the series. (Example Black Vipers. 0_0) The different combinations of Mala Mala Jong are a bit confusing though, such as the Two Ton Tunic can be duplicated, but the Helmet of Jong cannot?Kimiko's style of this episode was alright, but i get the feeling that she gets more gothic in every episode (eg Return of Pandabubba.) Which isn't my thing. Good music though, especially in the Xiaolin Showdown. And the final thing i have to say is: what is with the centre of the earth all about? When Omi last visited it, he was boiling to the ground, but in this one, they were like immune to it. But in actual life, it would burn you to a crisp. Oh well. But overall, it was good.moreless

  • Mala Mala Jong appears again every 1500 years. The warriors try to stop Mala Mala Jong from being created. Then, they try to get the Emperor Scorpion, but they fail at that. The showdown happens and the Xiaolin side wins.moreless

    Although this is tied for my second favorite episode, the plotline could have been better. The wu happens to float out of the vault and when Omi holds the Star Hanabi, he happens to float with it. how could that be possible?! And could someone tell Raimundo that you hold on to people ankles, not the bottom of their pants? That was super disturbing to the tenth powered squared! If the plotline was better, this episode would have gotten a higher rating. It gives me so much pain that I rated one of my second favorite episodes of my favorite TV show this low. I hope that I do not have to rate another episode this low ever again.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • At one point, the Fearsome Four were seen using the Golden Tiger Claws to get to the center of the Earth, and a few moment later they were seen using the Serpent's Tail instead. (Reply: They didn't know the Emporer Scorpion's Location so they were going elsewhere to locate the Shen-Gong-Wu.)

    • The silk Jong shoots at Jack disappears off the front of his body in the next shot.

    • Didn't Wuya control Jong without the need for a Shen-Gong-Wu in the last episode he appeared in? (Reply: Last time Jack created it, making it obey Wuya. This time, it formed together on its own.)

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Omi: I will defeat you and the fearsome four!
      Jack: (imitating omi) I will defeat you and the fearsome four! (in his own tone) Dude, get over yourself!

    • (Jack has just used the Ring of the Nine Dragons)
      Omi: You have only weakened yourself by dividing into so many Jacks, and you had little upper body strength to begin with!

    • Kimiko: Where is the Emperor Scorpion?
      Dojo: The center of the Earth! Dress light; It's always summer down there, and bring ice!

    • Clay: I think it's time to kick some Mala Mala butt!

    • Jack: (Wearing Emporer scorpion): Fearsome Four, I command you to...laugh evilly.(Fearsome four laugh evilly) Now I command you to laugh evily while hopping on one foot!(The Fearsome Four hops on one foot)
      Wuya: Enough gloating! Let's go!
      Jack: Okay, okay, but first...Fearsome Four, laugh evilly while, uh...tapdancing! (Fearsome four do a dance number, while holding canes)

    • Omi: I will show true leadership, by... not showing true leadership.

    • (While the Fearsome Four are getting their butts kicked)
      Wuya: This is what you call evil!? You look like bigger losers than Jack!

    • Wuya: Some days, it's hardly worth being evil.

    • Kimiko: Dojo, what do you think?
      Dojo: I don't know. I'm still thinkin' about Auntie May's sponge bath.

    • Clay: This place is creepier than Auntie May givin' herself a sponge bath.

    • Wuya: I prefer to keep things on a need-to-know basis.
      Jack: But I don't know anything.
      Wuya: Yes. It's the one thing you do well.

  • NOTES (15)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Shen-Gong-Wu: Emperor Scorpion
      This is a spoof of the movie The Emperor Scorpion.

    • Visual: The Matrix
      The scene were Omi dodges Raimundo while fire chases him is a parody of the first Matrix movie.

    • Fearsome Four
      There could be numerous references to outside sources. The most obvious, being the Fantastic Four, or possible they are named after the Fab Four (a nickname of the Beatles), or maybe even Moo's Big Bad Four from Monster Rancher.

    • Title: The Emperor Scorpion Strikes Back
      The title is a parody on the fifth Star Wars film, The Empire Strikes Back.
