Jackie Chan

File:Jackie iesidesd 7809.jpg

  Bad day - for demons.

The main hero of the series. He is an archaeologist on a mission to search for - in order - talismans, demon portals, animals with talisman powers, Oni masks, and demon chi objects that were used to imprison Shendu's siblings. Though he's quite likely the only archaeologist on the planet up to this job (thanks to being Jackie Chan), he'd rather be on a dig or minding his Uncle's antique shop.

 "Yes, I can see this is some very special garbage."

Jade Chan

File:Jade 9393ksd 1060.jpg

Jackie's niece who goes on adventures, much to Jackie's annoyance.

Uncle Chan

File:Uncle Magic 8247.jpg

 Who else wants a piece of Uncle?

Jackie's uncle and Jade's great-uncle. Runs an antique shop that is more of a homebase for the heroes than the high tech government agency. He's actually the cousin of (one of) her parents...they think.

I do not like fish

Once a Dark Hand enforcer, but defects to the Chans. Works for Uncle at his Antique shop and his apprentice in Chi spells.

Captain Augustus Black

  The only King I bow to is Elvis, and I don't see you wearing blue suede shoes.

The head of Section 13 and Jackie's long-time friend. First he doesn't believe in magic, but that changed when he saw Shendu.

El Toro Fuerte

 This is no costume, Captain Black. This is a way of life.

A Mexican wrestler that Jackie meets on his search for the talismans. He becomes a friend who occasionally helps the Chans on their missions.


 El Toro is the greatest!

File:Char 6879 2928.jpg

El Toro’s self-proclaimed “biggest fan,” who apparently is apprenticed under his idol. If El Toro is near, expect him to not be far behind.

 Jackie! Hey, sorry about the double-cross...

A(n ex-)thief that Jackie gets caught up with in the search for the snake Talisman. Hilarity Ensues. From the second season on, she drops in from time to time to help the Chans.

 I am the keeper of the talismans. I am the apocalypse of which legend speaks. And I am, for once and for all, your executioner.

The fire demon and main villain of seasons 1 and 2. Pre-series he was sealed into a stone statue and his talismans were scattered. Finding them is the focus of seasons 1 and 3.

  • And I Must Scream: Being trapped as a sentient statue for 900 years can take its toll.
  • All Your Powers Combined: The combined powers of the Talismans were really his powers separated from his body. With them, he can change from his statue form to his true form.
    • The statue form can be escaped with a single talisman (the rat, who grants "motion to the motionless"). The rest give him power but the rat is what gives him life.
  • Big Bad: Of Season 1.
  • Big No: He yells this after ending up possessing Valmont.
  • Big Screwed-Up Family: Him and his demon brethren.
  • Blasphemous Boast: Those three I AM statements in the section quote.
  • Butt Monkey: Abused by his siblings for not trying to free them.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Valmont, Dalong, etc. Anyone he works with he eventually betrays. The sole exception was his efforts to free his demon brethern, and thats largely because he was too terrified of them after the last time he betrayed them.
  • Demonic Possession: One of his more used powers when he doesn't have his body.
  • The Dragon: To his siblings in Season 2.
  • Evil Overlord: Used to be one. His ultimate goal is to reclaim his lost glory.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: In season 1.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: Daolon Wong resurrected Shendu in season 3 so he can get the dragon talisman. Did not work out well for Wong.
  • Mundane Solution: Tries to kill Uncle and Section 13 to interrupt their incantation. It doesn't work.
  • Not Quite Dead: Killed by Jade in the end of season 1, but returns as a spirit in season 2 possessing Valmont. He gets revived in season 3, but ended up turned into a statue again.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: He's actually a demon dragon with magic talismans inside him.
  • Playing with Fire
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: In Season 1 and later.
  • Skyward Scream: Every time he is defeated.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: When Shendu is possesing someone.
  • Rewriting Reality: Getting to the Book of Ages while possessing Jackie.
  • Sealed Evil in a Duel: In the series finale, with his also evil son Drago.
  • Smug Snake: Especially in season 2, where nothing goes the way he wants it to, he is constantly harrased by his terrifying siblings, and is constantly arguing with Valmont whose body he has to share (to the point Valmont manages to knock him out- he was actually trying to kill him and risked his life to do it, just because he was sick of him). In season 3 he gets his Talisman powers back only to be immediately resealed, and after that is stuck as a prisoner of Section 13 until the finale.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: The only answer to Empowered Draco.
  • Summon Magic: The Shadowkhan.
  • Talking to Himself: He's voiced by James Sie, who also voices Jackie and Chow.
  • Take Over the World: See Evil Overlord.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Shendu betrays Valmont and the Enforcers after getting all his talismans because he thinks that Dark Jackie was the one who brought them to him, not Valmont and the Enforcers. In season 2, he sends Finn, Ratso, and Chow out since they no longer needed to carry the Pan'Ku Box. Later, he tries to do this to Hak Foo, but Valmont doesn't want to be alone with him. He even lampshades it with Daolon Wong after backstabbing him.

  "I may be a noble dragon, but I'm also a Demon Sorceror. And not known for keeping promises."


File:Valmont 394d 9686.jpg

 Jackie Chan. Finally, we meet. It was nice knowing you.

The crime boss of the crime syndicate, the Dark Hand. He is also the main villain in seasons 1 and 2.

Demon Sorcerers

File:ImagesCAL4MSZF 5430.jpg

Shendu's brothers and sisters. They hate Shendu's guts because he didn't try to free them.

Daolon Wong

File:ImagesCAP2X6SC 4465.jpg

The main villain of season 3. He is a wizard who tries to find the animals with talisman powers.

Tarakudo & the Oni Generals/Oni Masks

 I am the one and only King of the Shadowkhan!

File:ImagesCA8D7TLU 542.jpg

The main villain of season 4. He is the king of Shadowkhan and lord of all Oni. He has nine generals trapped in masks. Once they find a wearer, they can control their own types of Shadowkhan.

  • Affably Evil: The least strict boss to the Enforcers.
  • Beard of Evil
  • Big Bad: Of Season 4.
  • Casting a Shadow: Summoning the Shadowkhan and spreading darkness are the main powers of the Oni generals.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy
  • Deadpan Snarker: This is one of Tarakudo's most defining traits.
  • Demonic Possession: When an oni mask is placed on the face of the user, they are still conscious of their actions, but are greatly influenced by the mask, though eventually it will completely take over. Finn wasn't affected because a rat talisman awakened Ikazuki was accidentally placed on his butt.
    • Body Snatcher: Once the mask's host uses their Shadowkhan, they have begin to have equal control of the users body, whether the user (namely Captain Black, Finn, Paco, Jade and Valmont) want them to or not.
  • The Dragon: Ikazuki, the blue/samurai oni.
  • The Dreaded: Ikazuki again, who is feared as Tarakudo's most fearsome general. Played for laughs as he ends up the Butt Monkey in all appearances- in his first, literally.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: As a tattoo that Jade put on her leg. Not surprisingly it's a Mark of the Beast (see below).
  • Intangible Floating Demon Head: Tarakudo. Makes him a very difficult enemy to fight, but also forces him to rely heavily on his minions. He still seems to prefer it to having a real body, though, since the only way he would get that is if someone found the mask that can seal him away.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: The 'minikan' that one of the generals can summon. They're not demonic ninja like the others so they can't beat up enemies in a straight forward manner. However, they can eat the shadows of humans which not only makes them stronger but incapcitates the victim. As Tarakudo says, one has to make use of their particular strengths.
  • Living Shadow: The Shadowkhan, Elite Mooks who literally come out of the shadows. They have been around since season 1 but their role and backstory are expanded to be revealed as Tarakudo's private army, and come in eight additional varieties.
  • Mark of the Beast: If anyone has his mark will have demonic powers and become evil.
  • Mask of Power: The season's maguffins
  • Maurice LaMarche: Ikazuki
  • Mind Over Matter: Tarakudo
  • Oracular Head: For most of season 4
  • Sealed Evil In A Mask: All of the Oni generals, and Tarakudo's ultimate fate. By extension, the Shadowkhan, control of which are the main reason the human villains want the mask in the first place.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: In this trope, Tarakudo is a blue oni and Ikazuki is a red one, which is ironic because, in literal terms, Tarakudo and Ikazuki faces are red and blue respectively.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Once all nine demon generals are released, they collectively possess enough power to eventually cover the entire world in darkness. Presumably, if Tarakudo were not a floating head, he could do this all by himself.
  • Summon Magic: Each Oni general commands a tribe of Shadowkhan and, as per usual, can summon them at will. Shen-Du commanded a tribe of Shadowkahn because he magially manipulated one of their masks.
  • Xanatos Gambit: The Oni generals are released whenever all nine masks are assembled in one place. Since Tarakudo is the only one that knows this, whether he gets all the masks, or the J-Team does, he still wins.

The Shadowkhan

Shen-Du's Elite Mooks in seasons 1 and 2, barring a temporary lapse when a demonically possessed Jade seized control of them. Later revealed to originally serve Tarakudo, and to actually come in nine different forms, or "Tribes", of which Shen-Du's Ninjas were only one.


File:Images Drago 3 6551.jpg

 No prison can hold the son of Shendu!

The main villain of season 5. He is Shendu's son, but decides that he's better off making a name for himself rather than be just a supporting player to his father.

The Enforcers

File:Enforcers 4507.jpg

 All that world domination stuff just doesn't pay the rent.

Shendu and Valmont's henchmen. It consists of Finn, Ratso, Chow, and Hak Foo. Tohru starts as an Enforcer but he has a Heel Face Turn in the end of season 1, making Hak Foo replace him. Later, in season 3, they work for Daolon Wong and Tarakudo in season 4. But in season 5, when Drago employs them, he turns them down after they failed him once.

The Ice Gang

Drago's henchmen. It consists of Strikemaster Ice, DJ Fist and MC Cobra. Originally a pizza boy, Ice joined a monastery where he learned martial arts and met his boys Fist and Cobra. After they were kicked out of the monastery for bad behavior, the Ice Gang sought revenge but were stopped by Jackie and the Enforcers. They were later recruited by Drago and changed them into his dragon henchmen.


Monkey King

  Stop me if you've heard this one befooorre...

Monkey King is a trickster monkey. He is released whenever someone pulls his puppet form's leg, the luckless victim becoming a puppet in his place, only to be restored if he pulls their leg, which he isn't likely to do of his own free will. He might seem like an irritating prankster at first glance, but he takes a very dim view of anyone trying to spoil his fun...

  "Haven't you noticed? I have a WEIRD sense of humour!"

  • The Other Darrin: Voiced by Bobcat Goldthwait in his first appearance and by Billy West in his second.
  • Puppet Permutation: Is a wooden dummy, but changes into a live being when someone pulls his leg. The person who pulls his leg turns into a dummy themselves.
  • Slasher Smile
  • Sublime Rhyme: The instructions for switching places with a person in terms of living-puppet.

  To free me of glitches and put you in stitches, this merry ape begs: Pull my leg.

Tohru's mother

Tohru's mother. She only appears in a handful of episodes but leaves quite an impact. She shows the Chans a new side of Tohru and becomes Uncle's arch rival.
