    Hello,

         I have a new question for everyone. When being a Kung Fu panda Fan, I usually run into TiPo( Po and Tigress romance ) fans. All i have to ask is why ship them?

    • Well, I'm a TiPo shipper too. I knew that Jack Black and Angelina Jolie are the great TiPo shippers.

      What did you figger out?

    • Well, I have figured out a theory that some KFP fans formulated. I will have to put a link to this.

    • In the future, please put your thoughts in one post instead of four. It's spammy behavior for a non-chat forum thread.

      Also, please don't upload images - including images of images - that we already have here on the wiki. I replaced your post image with the wiki's two matching ones.

      And again: please remember to mark spoilers. One of the images is from KFP3 and indicates a pretty large spoiler.


      My brief thoughts on the theory: Tigress and Po + yin and yang =/= TiPo romance. Don't know why the fandom keeps thinking it does. The yin-yang theory (which I do support) just shows that they have a special relationship with one another, but not one that says they're going to become a couple. The philosophical idea behind yin and yang and its mythological tiger/dragon representation discusses and illustrates balance in opposites, not one's destiny in selecting a partner.

    • Oh, sorry about that.

      I agree with you, me myself, I wonder why people ship them, one of those people is my brother :|. Yes, and I also agree that the Yin and Yang theroy is possibly believable, but I can not say the same for TIPO.

    • ok listen up fellow kfp fans please read this! i am a very strong supporter of the ship of tigress adnd po. let me tell you the first thing i was exposed to in this fandom was tigess and po fanficiton. after the original shock of the ship i came to realize the hidden beauty in this shipping. frist off im a science gal and i know for a fact that tigers and pandas always have strong connection. and they are perfect. they chemistry is perfect and i love them with all my life. heres a link with some very persasive points about the ship that you will check out if you are a true fan #truefansonly

      What exactly does this mean? What's "science" are you referring to? Do tigers and pandas get along in the wild too? :P

    • Well Pandas and Tigers are both known to be very endangered animals, but in the wild its been known for both snow leopards and Tigers to kill pandas. I have also heard that a panda's paws are more catlike then bearlike, just something I heard do not know if its true. Anyways I think more then half the KFP fans are TiPo fans too, including my brother, but I think I get a few reasons why people ship TiPo. Ehh we will see what dreamworks has in store.

      I'm pretty sure that's true. The Chinese name for a giant panda, 熊猫 (xióngmāo), literally means "bear cat", so they're definitely recognized for some of their more cat-like features.

      Anyways I think more then half the KFP fans are TiPo fans too ...

      Not necessarily true. It just seems that way because of how vocal some fans are when they're online. In reality, they're only a fraction of the fandom, while others that aren't as vocal or just never online (whether they support the pairing or not) are never heard about and therefore not taken into consideration when doing estimates like that.

      Every fandom has a large fraction of its fans that aren't online or vocal about a topic, at least not all the time. It's the same with KFP fans - not every single one of them is online and vocal about their opinions on OTPs. So anyone that says "the entire fandom wants TiPo to happen" is just not true, or at least not factually supported.

    • I think it would be cool to see TiPo happen...but how could they pull it off without it being weird or just plain terrible?

      You're right, there are probably a buncb of KFP fans who do not share the're opinion online so the truth is we will never know.

      I think it would be nice if they became canon and I don't care how many movies it takes, they have to do it right.

      It would add somthing different to the franchise, but if they did do I do not think they would make the biggest deal about it, even in the slight chance it might happen (slight). Although I do not know what to say about. "Sighs" 

      Maybe I will have a stonger opinion about it later on. For now, I guess out of curiosity, I wonder why people do it.

    • To VERY belatedly answer the original question with no shame whatsoever...............idk man, I think MoPo makes way more sense after watching all of Legends of Awesomeness. The TiPos tend to think I'm crazy, but aey...AEY...

      HD GAY







      It's called subtext, Steven.

      ...Okay, I'm aware there's no canon subtext here (or anywhere, for that matter), but shipping is all in good fun anyways, as far as I'm concerned. So please...no wars, guys. I am but a humble gay in the vast sea of heteronormativity, just enjoying my headcanons.

      (Also -- apologies if this image is featured on the wiki... I didn't see it on the episode page, but if it's anywhere else for some reason...whoopsie.)

    • I'm big fan of TiPo, but i don't want to arguing with anyone, who don't like TiPo, I just want to say, that i see their relationship special. More than friends, but not lovers(something between). And it seems to me, that the best love comes from the best friedship(They are clearly best friends).

      p.s.: sorry for my english, i know it's badly(i'm from Russia)   :)

    • Most of the "hints" in the movies are pretty ambiguous, depending on how you take it you'll either see developing romance or platonic friendship. The potential is there though and the movies have pretty much given us all the building blocks for it.

      Well, this platonic friendship will become the future romance.

      I wouldn't say it will without a doubt. It may very well become that, of course, but there's no canon guarantee. I personally have lotsa feels for their beautiful friendship just as it is. :') Platonic heterosexual relationships are so under-appreciated.

      Well, Jack Black and Angelina Jolie are the TIPO shippers.

      That's cool, too. To each their own!

    • That would be cool! TiPo, they are different in nature. And that kind of love in movies is always interesting. I think there is in any case will have a love line.
