Best Kung Fu Panda Characters

The Top Ten
1 Tigress

I can relate to her a lot. And in the first movie can you really blame her for being angry? She seemed to be chosen and would finally make her Father proud for once but then a panda comes out of nowhere landing in front of you being chosen

Tigress is one person I can compare to. She can be courageous and strong but at the same time she can be defensive and nurturing. I understand her backstory was a tragedy, but we've all been through a loss and have gone through life with ups and downs. Tigress is my favorite because I can compare to her and I loved tigers before Kung Fu Panda came out :3 now here is it.

I loved how shes changes from the first movie to the second, from at first being resentful to kind and understanding. Hated her in the first movie, but she is the best character by far in the second. One my favourite Dreamworks female heroines.

I really love Tigress, mainly because I can relate to her. We share similar characters and personalities, which is enough for me to put her at the top of my list.

2 Po

Po Is the best. He is funny and very strong. He is not only the Dragon Warrior he is also the big fat panda

Oogway saw the future in him and he is both sides of the yin and yang.

The character everyone can be. Transformative. Inspirational.

He is the most powerful and best character in the series.

3 Tai Lung

Who would vote for Tailung, Oogway said Tai lung has Darkness in his Heart, Why does every people on earth pick and judge the characters by there Strength. We could never judge a people with Physical Abilities but never a Dark Special Ability. We can't, So would we want this guy to go back and destroy once again? No. If he returns out good on Kung Fu Panda, I would say this thing "A Vase is Once Broken, Then a Vase can return its Pieces as a Vase but there are still Cracks we are never sure of". I just don't understand why people choose bad characters with strong abilities. It is just like choosing Power over Responsibility. But this Movie is only fictional though, But Many Times Today People in Reality Prioritize Strong People, No Matter what there Appearance is. Remember Right is Right, Wrong is Wrong. Let us say a Superhero has cool abilities and many people liked him even though he is evil, Many People rely on him, So can we trust him, Yes I know in Reality, Nobody would do that ...more

I have so many questions about this character, but what is the most interesting about him us his history. Like what was he like before he tuened bad? Why did he wanted the dragon scroll? And, how was it that he wasn't the dragon warrior yet still had a lot of skill in Kung if. I seemed that he was practically born with it.

Everyone thing Tai Lung is the pure evil...
He is not... not really.
Shifu raised him in the way of Kung fu... told him that he will become the Dragon Warrior.
Tai Lung spend his whole life for this... he wanted to do that for Shifu... for his father.
But when they denied him... he was lost and become evil...
For me one of the best anthagonist

The most underrated character in the franchise and yet, he's one of the most interesting ones. I do hope he does come back in the future, maybe not as the antagonist but join the heroes because, let's be honest, he was one when he was young. Wouldn't that be cool!

4 Lord Shen

Lord Shen needs a spin-off movie where he survive and he move to Japan.

He found redemption and he will protect Japan.

Smartly written villain with an actually reasonable motive. Also sleek and intelligent.

Lord Shen brings an elegance to the role of villain that Kai and Tai Lung lack.

He was the most cunning and complex villain in the series. Also one of the most beautifully animated

5 Master Oogway

Master Oogway invented Kung Fu. He was only barely defeated by Kai who had the had the chi of like 11 master warriors, so it would have been like a fight of 12 to 1. The only reason Po is able to beat Kai at the end is with the chi energy from the villagers, which was like 50 pandas (who have powerful chi-harnessing capabilities). Also, we already know Master Oogway is stronger than Kai because he defeated him and sent him to the spirit realm in the first place.

It's only logical Master Oogway was the founder of Kung fu, he had incredible balance, he was extremely intelligent and even wiser, doesn't even try and wins fights, is able to defeat tai lung in a matter of seconds, his chi was very strong and much more. Let's think about this logically; Master Shifu had way more experience then tai lung did, after 20 years of Shifu training and tai lung sitting in prison tai lung was destroying Shifu and Shifu was able to defeat the furious 5 by himself. Well then that means that if Oogway can defeat tai lung in seconds that means Oogway could defeat almost everyone. Even Po would be defeated. In a way, he's like Mr. Miyagi. He barely tries and wins fights, he doesn't get hit, and he's very wise.

Oogway, Elder Tortoise, Master of the Jade Palace, Founder of The Valley Of Peace, Creator of kung fu, Developer of the Dragon War Legend. Oogway is the most powerful being known to man, but why is he not considered the best character?

Thetoptens.com ranked Oogway the 9th best character, in one of the comments for Po (1 ranked) it states that Po is the most powerful character when it is obviously Oogway.

He is the creator of kung fu trained master shi fu and stopped tai lung with one hand! Now if that is not enough Master Oogway had the wisdom to predict what is going to happen. Lastly he never turned dark after training Master after Master who became evil.

6 Master Shifu

As Po said in legends of awesomeness, shifu is the greatest and most powerful kung fu master in all of china (but maybe after oogway died).He should be number 1!

In kung fu panda 3, Po described Shifu as a legend to his biological father, Li.

Master Shifu should be 3rd!

Mr shifu please teach me

7 Kai

He his the best of all and he was able to defeat viper, mantis, monkey, crane, eagle, crocodile, porcupine and he almost caught po half but due to the finger print and the dragon helped po. Kai fought the dragon as well as po

The only reason, Kai wasn't defeated by Po quickly, it was because he was immortal, otherwise, he wouldn't last a second

I think Kai is second because tai lung beat tigress and P.O. can't do the wuchi finger hold on him

This guy is fat but my favourite characters in kung fu panda are tai lung, lord shen and my favourite kai

8 Monkey

I love Monkeys. That's why Master monkey is my favorite character of Kung fu Panda.

9 Viper

She is such a sweetheart. She is really nice to her friends, of course. That's why I like her.

She is da best so caring. She would never throw someone under the bus. She was so nice to Po at his time of need.

"Po's having daddy issues"
-This is my favourite line of viper...EVER!

Why is She so low? She should be 8th place.

10 Crane

Crane is my second favorite Kung Fu Panda character ever.

He is my favourite character! I like him especially his straw hat

Crane is awesome!

Crane is a loser

The Contenders
11 Mantis

Tiny funny bug

12 Master Ox
13 Grand Master Oogway

Oogway got little to his name before the 2nd movie. Sure he was cool and all but not much was known of him, in the 3rd movie he gets a HUGE role as well as being in Secrets of the Scroll. He also had a role in Secrets of the Masters. By the end of all this he ends up being very fleshed out, powerful and also rather amusing.
He deserves to be in the top 3 or 4.

I agree with you

Yep yep and yep

14 Mr. Ping

He is daddy material

15 Master Thundering Rhino

He is the greatest in the Kung fu council.

He has a cool suit

16 Master Chicken

Master chicken is the coolest chicken out there. With his awesome feather blades, and his unbelievable courage, I think that Master Chicken is the best character in Kung Fu Panda 3 (Even though he might be a bit fat.).

17 Po's Dad

Don't you mean Li Shan?

18 Fenghuang

Fenghuang is the coolest. She beat the furious five and master shifu. She is the strongest in the past furious five:-P

I wish we could see more of her. She was a fantastic villain.

19 Yijiro
20 Master Yao

This guy mastered all of kung fu 100 percent and he defeated temu Tai and his army without moving a muscle. His chi can put every kung-fu master combined to shame. P. S. he has a higher rank than celestial Phoenix.

21 Wolf Boss

It's a shame that Shen was his killer.

22 Jindiao

Even though this character is not to known since he has only been seen in the kung fu panda paws of destiny T.V. show, he is still awesome after you get to know him. Except for him being extremely powerful in his dragon form, he still has some pretty good villain traits. He is ready to do whatever it takes to accomplish his goal. Also, he does not care about his allies like jade tusk. Classic Villain!

23 Ke-Pa

Ke-Pa an actual dragon that knocked out po, the furious five and shifu with easy! he,s the Real Dragon Warrior

24 Master Chao

He is awesome he trained with junjie and shifu even though they are on the same level both treat him better.
