Is Master Shift based off Master Sennin-Sama from Dragonball?

I was reading the Dragon Ball manga and when I got to chapter 85 there was this one guy who acted almost exactly how Master Shifu acted towards Po when Po wanted the noodles, but this time it was over some holy water and towards Gokuu. This brought up the question: Is Shifu based off Sennin-Sama? (Read from right to left)

Episodes of LoA that you liked?

I know that LoA tends to be the punching bag of the franchise given it's lesser animation quality and even lesser writing quality, but there do seem to be some episodes that even some of the show's detractors like.

Is the LOA Version of Po a Jerk?

Does anyone think that the Legends of Awesomeness version of Po is a Jerk? And if you think so, give me an example why you think that.

Kung Fu Panda Spin-Off Movie with Tigress as Main Character

So you know how they did a spin off movie for Puss in Boots from Shrek? Well, it got me thinking. What if they make a Kung Fu Panda spin off movie with Tigress as the main character?

Now don't get me wrong, I like Kung Fu Panda a lot. But one problem I have is that Tigress doesn't seem to get much of a spotlight. I mean, she didn't get to fight until near the end of the first movie. In the second one, she definitely had a bigger role, but didn't get to fight Shen head on. And the third was kind of in between for me. I mean, she did get to fight Kai somewhat, but all she did during the training montage was avoid the little girl Panda. For Legends of Awesomeness, some of the episodes that had Tigress were AWESOME, but I DID NOT like the episode "The Spirit Orbs of Master Ding". I mean, COME ON! It's not fun to see your favorite character get beaten and then get taunted without mercy, especially from Po.

Anyway, I have gone WAY off track. Back with the idea for a spin-off movie: Tigress would be the main character. She ends up finding out something about her past and decides to go on a Journey to discover her heritage. Along the way, she would meet a male Tiger who ends up tagging along. Po, Shifu, and the rest of the Furious Five would end up joining them, and there probably would be a rivalry going between Po and the male Tiger. In the end, Tigress discovers her heritage, what happened to her parents, and ends up coming full circle of who she is. I also had the idea that the male Tiger would be voiced by Chris Pratt (Lego Movie, Guardians of The Galaxy, The Magnificent Seven).

So yeah. Just wanted to get this idea out in the open and see what any of you think of it.

Kung Fu Panda Ships

I thought it would be fun to have a thread where people can talk about which KFP characters they ship ;).  My main ships are TiShen and TiPo ^-^

Detailed location maps?

Are there schematics, blueprints, or any picture that shows China with all the locations mentioned in the KFP universe (Gongmen City, Lee Da Academy, Wu Fortress for example) and the Jade Palace (everything from high to low - between the first stairstep to the Hall of Warriors). Doesn't matter if it is canon or fan-made.

The Galapagos Islands in Kung Fu Panda

Hey guys! I'm new here, only been here a few days so far, so I thought I'd start a discussion.

We know about Oogway's homeland, the Galapagos Archipelago, as being where he was born, but nothing else. It's never shown, never mentioned, only on the website for the first movie.

Probably no one apart from Oogway fans like myself wonders what the Islands were like, especially during the time of his youth when he still lived there. What was the society like? The culture? The language? Oogway's childhood? Unless Dreamworks makes a prequel about Oogway, we'll probably never know what the Islands were like during Oogway's time.

One thing we do know. Oogway is about a thousand years old. The Galapagos Islands weren't known by the Europeans that long ago. They've only been known for about 400 years or so. For that matter, there are no indigenous humans of the Galapagos Islands as far as we know(although the Incas briefly visited at some point, leaving behind bowls and similar artifacts, indicating a visit but not permanent settlement).

Therefore, we can't replicate Oogway's culture off a real-life Galapagos native culture because there is none. That would make worldbuilding a fictional one rather difficult. 
However, we can research real-world cultures close to the Islands for inspiration, using their languages, religion, and lifestyles as inspiration, creating what an indigenous Galapagos culture might've been like if it really existed.

Most inspiration would come from native South Americans on the west coast of the continent, like the Inca, the Cayapa, and such tribes, as well as Polynesian cultures, since they're in the Pacific Ocean like the Galapagos Islands. The native language could include words from or similar to Quechua, the language of the Incas, as well as Polynesian words.
I'm particularly inspired by Disney's Moana, as it reminds me most of the Galapagos Islands out of all the fictional depictions of primitive or native cultures(real or not) that I've seen. Or perhaps it's just because I love Moana so much. Either way, Moana serves as a great inspiration.

I've been wanting to share this with other KFP fans, so let me know what you think! Share your own ideas, your opinions, whatever you have to say!

Shen taken by Kai

So Shen died. that means he is in the spirit realm. if Kai has taken the chi of every master there, he could've taken Shen's chi. do you guys agree or not.

In an all out fight between Po and Tigress who wins?

I'd say Po. Ever since KFP 2 he's surpassed everyone in the Furious Five - that includes Tigress - and  in KFP 3 he even surpassed Shifu when he mastered chi. We've only ever seen Po use his full power against enemies and he usually needs and incentive to do so, like his friends being in danger or something, but if that power was directed at Tigress for whatever reason I don't think she'd stand much of a chance. In addition, he can learn new techniques on the fly. As of right now, Po is second only to Oogway when it comes to combat. If he wanted to I bet he could take over China without much of a struggle.

Your least favorite characters

Whether it's from the films, series, or other KFP media, we all probably have at least one character we could do without. Who might they be? List / discuss it here.

Why was Shen evil?

It seems that Shen was power-hungry to rule China for no reason and used fireworks to weapons to use it to take over China.

Tai Lung was evil because he was not worthy to be chosen to be the "Dragon Warrior" and Kai was evil because he would be more strongly by chi.

How does Kai compare to Shen and Tai Lung?

All he did was destroy some stuff in the Valley and then got his jade minions, WHICH WERE KUNG FU MASTERS, rekt by a bunch of wet behind the ears pandas and didn't even put up a good fight with Po. How did Kai manage to beat the Furious Five but couldn't get past a team of ragtag  pandas? What? They hyped up his character by saying he's taken the chi of all the Masters and is now strong as hell but when it comes time to actually fight he gets crushed. Shen completely obliterates this guy in comparison. He managed to get Gongmen City under his complete control, nearly had everyone killed with a cannon and the situation got so bad that the Five and Po were blasted into the water while his warships piled out of the harbor about to go on a conquest!  Kai also fails to have a menacing vibe that Tai Lung and any villian should have. He wasn't threatening AT ALL.  His theme was awesome but besides that this character is a failure as the antagonist and didn't even put up a good fight.

Is it bad that Comcast bought Dreamworks?

If Comcast doesn't see any profit in the KFP series then they can just scrap it all together or make it a money grab. Now that Dreamworks is under their belt they can do whatever.

Your Top 3 Favorite KFP Characters

Now I've always wandered which Kung Fu Panda characters were liked alot. Truthfully I would like to know what are peoples' favorite 3 characters. Thank you

What do you think Po's mother's name is?

In the spirit of Mother's Day today, I want to ask this question to the KFP community on here. I've actually been wanting to for a while, but never got around to it 'til today. :P

If you've seen KFP3, then you know that Po's mother never got a name. Quite disappointed to say the least, though it was nice that she was at least brought up in the film instead of completely brushed aside - and she was even given a nice personal description by her husband Li. I also gotta say that "Portrait of Mom" is probably one of my (if not THE) top favorites in the film soundtrack.

But even still, a lot of fans were hoping her name would get mentioned, and it never did. :(
So, what do YOU think her name is/would be/could be? I've been seeing people give their own names to the Furious Five, but I'd really like to hear what everyone would give Po's mother.

Franchise continuity

Do all the kung fu panda movies, books, comic books, animated shorts, animated series and other franchises all exist in one continuity?

Po's age is confusing

How can Po be just twenty years old? Shen attacked the panda village where Po lived when he was a cub thirty years ago.

Kai's powers

Seeing Kai's frightening powers, i bet it might make non-KFP characters cringe in fear. Like Vegeta from Dragon Ball.

Canon Video Games?

In my day and a half that I've been on this sight, I found that there are people far more knowledgeable about this series than me. While I wouldn't call this an obsession, I really do love reading what other, sometimes larger, fans have to say about stuff. With that said, do you guys believe the KFP video games to be canon. I myself have never played them. Are they any good?
