Xiaolin Chronicles is a American-French Canadian produced animated action television series that is a revival to the 2003 animated series Xiaolin Showdown. It first aired on Disney XD in the United States on August 26, 2013 before airing the rest of the episodes on Netflix on July 1, 2015.


Set many years after the events of Showdown, the monks are now joined by a new recruit that is similar to Omi named Ping-Pong and they must continue looking for Shen-Gong Wu before the evil Heylin forces do.

Bad Qualities

  1. All of the characters’ voice actors (except Omi's and Katnappe's) have been recast with Canadian voice actors due to the show being produced in that country.
    1. Michael Donovan replaces Maurice LaMarche as Master Fung, even though LaMarche himself was born in Toronto.
    2. Speaking of Donovan, he does a poor job replacing Wayne Knight as Dojo the Dragon.
    3. The voice acting is a loophole, as the Canadian actors live in Los Angeles and have dual citizenship (US/Canada).
  2. Ping-Pong is an incredibly annoying and useless character.
  3. Because Warner Bros didn't produce the cartoon, many of the character designs and Shen Gong Wu's names were changed. Such as Dojo the dragon being yellow instead of green.
  4. Lots of continuity errors.
  5. Omi has been flanderized into a selfish brat.
  6. A lot of the episodes were getting boring to watch and continued to get worse and worse. It was so bad that only 13 of its episodes aired in the US, leaving 6 unaired until July 1, 2015 when they were burned off on Netflix.
  7. The Xiaolin Showdowns being animated in 3D is king of weird.

Good Qualities

  1. Tara Strong and Jennifer Hale came back to reprise their roles as Omi and Katnappe.
  2. Christy Hui returned as executive producer.
  3. Some of the action is still good.
  4. The animation and the character designs are decent.
  5. This show was also good for those who are remembering Xiaolin Showdown in the old Kids WB days.

I'm gonna bash my head if Jackie Chan Adventures was given a shitty reboot.
