|“||Fly back there and tell them... the real Dragon Warrior... is coming home.||„|
|~ Tai Lung|
Tai Lung is the main and sole antagonist of Kung Fu Panda. He was the adoptive son and former student of Master Shifu, and a powerful master of the Leopard Style of kung fu.
Trained by Shifu at the Jade Palace, Tai Lung was raised under the impression that he was to become the prophesied Dragon Warrior. However, after he was denied the title by Master Oogway, Tai Lung revealed his true dark nature by ravaging the Valley, resulting in his incarceration for twenty years. After breaking out of prison, he sought to claim the Dragon Scroll and take his place as the Dragon Warrior once again, fighting and defeating many warriors in his pursuit. However, despite being a warrior of great strength and determination, Tai Lung finally met his match when he was defeated by Po, the true Dragon Warrior.
