Tigress is my favorite because she had trouble with her temper, and still does at times. Tigress was judged for who she was and what she looked like. Tigress also has trouble expressing her emotions and gets really annoyed with people easily. In a way, she sounds a lot like me and for that I feel connected to her.
I edited your post, Vapor, to include the wiki-wide poll about this topic. Hopefully there will be some extra activity that way. :)
I love all of the FF in different ways, but my favorite member is still Crane. I really like his overall calm and cool demeanor, as well as his theme of grace and balance. If I were to ever become a kung fu master, I would most treasure his style of fighting and movement.
I've already answered this question, but I thought I'd mention that I've grown a recent liking and appreciation for Master Monkey. Not only is he voiced by one of my favorite actors and martial artists, but his character has the comic relief aspect that isn't annoying, but rather relaxing and legitly funny.
Monkey's fighting style is pretty neat to watch, too. His movements give off the impression that he can (and probably does) take on multiple enemies at once, and that's awesome.
I still like Crane the most, and I still love all the rest of the Five for different reasons, but there's my short tidbit on Monkey. He deserves more votes. :(
Out of curiosity. How many people voted Tigress because they want to see her with Po? Follow up question, why do you want to see Tigress end up with Po? I get that they're friends and all, but can't they just be friends?

A'ight, I'll bite. For me there are 3 main points. Character progression, Background (These two somewhat go hand in hand so I'll lump them under one paragraph) and, of course, Po. (I haven't watched KFP3, waiting on DVD Release, but I know there isn't anything big in terms of development)
Firstly, I think it's because there's actually a large amount of character progression if they chose to pursue it compared to the rest of the Five due to her additional screen time compared to the rest of the cast. Predominantly, she is a goal driven, stoic and isolated character and on the face of it there isn't much more there outside of her comradery between the Furious Five and their close friends/relatives. However there are constant hints dropped in that there's a lot more to her mainly dropped in KFP2 and the EU in LoA etc etc. that she could offer a lot more as a rounded, failiable character like Po. The obvious hints includes those hugs, the fact she is a lot more soft to kids than adults even though even as a cub she was shunned by those her age, but less obvious tips are mainly included in the EU. which can be questionable in terms of Canon.
And now for Po. In KFP1 I did not think of them as a couple but as a brother sister relationship. Apart from her being his favourite (See Trivia for Tigress) there was no obvious angle in terms of shipping them as a couple. She does however recieve a large amount of screen time, probably because she would've been the dragon warrior in her mind had Po not arrived and the film focuses a fair amount on her dreams being crushed and how the De Facto leader deals with having that rejection.
In KFP2 though there are multiple occasions where the film seems to hint toward a more serious relationship, partly driven by Po's struggle and by the fact she willingly opens herself up and seemed to want to say something else before the Five were awoken by them when on the boat. We have the two hugs and the film heavily implies she isn't like this for others. Again, why? Furthermore, she puts herself in harms way for him when on the warships after Boss Wolf was killed. (Would she have done for the others is hard to say) The Cliché Opposites Attract I think also applies here as well.
If KFP2 hadn't seemed to push a more serious angle between them, I'd still say she would be my favourite because of the point earlier of the Five; she has a lot of character develoment potential.
Or, if you're a code nerd like me, you can also use your browser's "Inspect" tool to modify the page's styling so each option has more space around it, thus allowing you to choose another option. No one wants to do that though, lol.
The ajax polls haven't been formatting very well in forum threads lately. They're fine everywhere else on the wiki. I think Wikia made some recent global changes to the forum's formatting code, and that's why it's not showing correctly. I would report it, but I doubt it'll make a difference. Staff seem to be too busy fixing other stuff.
I llike Tigress when she's cooperative during fights, I like vipor when she's flipping enough to be tricky, i like Mantis when he's checking Po's strength or helping the rest with a scary situation, I like crane when he outflies an enemy, and I Iike Monkey when he's watchful about who's hurt.
Master Tigress is my favorite of the Furious Five. She's beautiful, hardcore, heroic, and a good fighter. Plus, there's a bit of mystery to her, as nobody knows about her real parents or why she was abandoned. If anything, I personally think that she should be the Dragon Warrior!
