~ Taotie

Taotie is the fourth antagonist in Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness.

He is a warthog, the father of Bian Zao, and an old rival of Master Shifu.


Taotie was once a Kung Fu warrior, until Master Shifu became more skilled than him, which lead to his jealously and felt inferior.

Taotie is incredibly skilled in mechanics, having helped invent and build the Training Hall. However, he's an old rival of Shifu's because he had turned down Kung Fu for mechanics.

Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness

He made his first appearance in "Sticky Situation," where he was tasked by Master Po to fix the Training Hall. It is known that Taotie was once Master Shifu's friend and a student at the Jade Palace in his younger days. But unlike Shifu, Taotie wasn't a good fighter and had a hard time trying to learn Kung Fu. To help him improve, he and Shifu constructed the Training Hall, making use of Taotie's skill in mechanics. But while the Training Hall was impressive, Taotie's Kung Fu skills still weren't, and he remained a poor, clumsy student. Jealous of Shifu's growing abilities, Taotie decided that he would use his mechanical mind to compensate his failures in Kung Fu. Taking the sacred Jade Orb of Infinite Power, he made a giant weapon in the shape of a wooden warrior, fueled by the Orb, devised to make up for all of his weaknesses. He was proud of his creation, but Grand Master Oogway and Shifu were instead appalled by it. They told the boar that his machines sullied the purity of Kung Fu. They took back the Orb and presumably destroyed Taotie's creation, and he was dismissed from the Jade Palace. Taotie left, abandoning Kung Fu, feeling resentful of it and of Master Shifu, and wanting to prove himself superior to both.

In "Fluttering Finger Mindslip," Taotie and his son are seen back at their home with Taotie as determined as ever to get revenge on Shifu. A messenger arrived and handed him a bill from the Palace, which infuriated Taotie. He and Bian Zao later flew to the Jade Palace in his bird-like flying machine to confront the Kung Fu warriors about the bill, only to discover the Furious Five standing before him with no memory of who they were, or who Taotie was.

The warthog used this to serve his purposes, telling them he was their Kung Fu master and that Shifu and Po were their sworn enemies. Though he was able to deceive them long enough to have them attack Shifu and Po, they eventually had their memories restored when Po used the clay from the Alabaster Pot of Remembrance on them during the battle. Cornered by Po and the others and unarmed, Taotie again fled from the scene with Bian Zao, and they escaped in Taotie's flying bird-like machine.

Taotie was then mentioned in the episode "Big Bro Po," in which Master Po, who was babysitting Taotie's son Bian Zao, said that Taotie was sent to Chorh-Gom Prison for all his crimes.
