Zan is a character in the Nickelodeon television series Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness. He is a young, four-year-old prince who is the son of the Emperor's sister, thus making him the Emperor's nephew. He first appeared in the episode "Kung Fu Day Care", where he was placed in the care of Tigress after Fung and his bandit followers had kidnapped him and tried to place him up for a ransom to his royal parents.
In "Kung Fu Day Care", Zan was abducted by Fung and his bandits gang, who intended to hold the boy for ransom. Unfortunately for the crocs, Zan managed to escape and playfully ran through the forest with the crocs in pursuit. During the chase Zan encountered Tigress and Po. After Zan innocently revealed that the bandits had kidnapped him, Po and Tigress beat the bandits, forcing them to flee without Zan. Much to Tigress's chagrin, Zan took an instant liking to her.
Po and Tigress took Zan back to the Jade Palace and explained to Shifu what had happened. Shifu proceeded to ask Zan where he lived, only to get a childish answer from the boy. After sending Crane and Viper to search for his parents, Shifu ordered Tigress to watch over Zan, as his liking to her was the only thing he could hold on to now that he was in a strange place separated from his parents. Though very reluctant, Tigress agreed to do this after Shifu reminded her of how she had been frightened as an infant when her parents had abandoned her at Bao Gu Orphanage. However, her lack of experience with children meant Tigress frequently ran into trouble.
Zan is a very happy and excitable child with an active imagination.

Zan grew fond of Tigress and saw her as a mother figure. However, Tigress did not want anything to do with him; regardless of that fact, Shifu ordered her to look after him. Zan wanted to do activities with her, he even asked Tigress to tell him a bedtime story, which Tigress was not very good at. Near the end of their time together, Zan even called her "Mama."
Zan does like Po, as Po was the only one who played with him and wished him good night on his first night at the Jade Palace. However, he likes being around Tigress more.

Zan was not frightened by his kidnappers.
