Today we're wrapping up our heroes and villains theme with one more character spotlight, and he's another favorite from the fandom: the exiled inventor of the cannon, Lord Shen!


We're going to have one final open discussion on this character, as well as one final discussion on why he's a key villain figure in the franchise. And for the last time, here are the theme's featured questions (customized to Shen) to help you in your answer:


-- Is Shen primarily a hero or a villain?

-- What qualities make him this way?

-- Is he maybe heroic in some ways? Why or why not?


Also, because we've now covered both main villains from the films, here's another poll.

Which main villain from the first two films is your favorite?
  • Tai Lung
  • Lord Shen

Well, Shen's evil because he wanted to rule the world! - No heroic part in that! Plus he killed hundreds of innocent people!! And tried to kill even more (including the Five, Po, Shifu and the other masters!) persons!!!

I know, it's a short answer but I think there is nothing more to say about this cruel person!

There is no way that Shen is heroic. He is a villain and deserved to die! He even tried to fire on his own men and when the wolf boss stood up for his brothers, Shen killed him! He terrorized villages, stealing all of their metal and letting his wolves beat people up. I have a deep hatred for Lord Shen and that is why his face is currently being scribbled on with markers on my Wall of Shame right next to Tai Lung.

Shen's a more blatantly evil/ old-fashioned villain. He's murderous, likes causing pain, relies on his cannon/ henchmen, and has lame excuses for himself. The most "heroic" thing Shen probably did was allow himself to die.

Props to Nico Marlet for the character design though.

Shen is purely bad and evil. He's a murderer, careless, and he's want to rule the world (after china). He separated po from his family, steal all thing he need for his cannon, and want to kill all the master. He like if others suffering, and even his parents hate his evilness (instead being loved). He's extremely evil and annoying

Looooooooooove him!Haha! I find him humorous even when he's angry.I learned something with him,he says "Happiness is an archivement",and that's true.Unfortunately,for him,happiness was killing others and rule the world.

I like both Tai Lung I like his tricks, and Lord Shen I like the family history plus that he didn't do stuff alone.His friendship with the wolves is clear after reading wikipedia cast facts of the sequel

He is the best, as he committed a mass genocide of pandas, destroyed his ancestrial tower (which is awesome), and shot po out of the factory. (Po should have been critically too hurt to fight.)

This is why i hate Shifu in the second film cause he JUST had to send the masters out.
