Character Names[edit]

This may just be a coincidence, but Omi's name means water in Yoruba, and Clay's name is, clay. Do the other character's names have any meaning? And if so, are these meanings related to the characters themselves? GreenIsGarbage (talk) 17:29, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Rai is Japanese for thunder and Kimiko written in Japanese ends in the character for fire. We can't really add this to the article though because we don't have a reliable source to suggest it is more than coincidence. Jay32183 (talk) 07:26, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Merge proposal[edit]

  • I'm opposed to merging the articles. The articles that would be removed are unsourced, don't have real world context, and would overburden this article with fancruft. Deletion is probably a better option. If the articles were merged, the content from the other articles would slowly but surely be trimmed out of this article anyway.

  • One thing you could do is merge all the "list of Shen Gong Wus" into one instead of three. Ameki (talk) 20:57, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
    • That wouldn't really solve the problem. The issue isn't that there are too many articles. Although a significant plot point, Shen Gong Wu does not have the real world significance, or at least not sources providing a real world perspective, necessary for a stand alone article or list. Merging the three lists would just lump the content together. They were originally one list that was split for length. If a list is allowed, splitting for length based on season is reasonable.

  • I've attempted merging Shen Gong Wu into this article. I've left the lists for now. Jay32183 (talk) 23:59, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
    • I've hidden the lists under redirects. Seems like the only thing we can do, other than deletion. Jay32183 (talk) 03:18, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

4th season[edit]

Is that truth, that there's gonna be he 4th season, or it will be just displayed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.255.26.186 (talk) 15:03, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

tangled web[edit]

I find the talk page Talk:Tangled Web a little confusing. I'm guessing it's talking about Xiaolin Showdown, since that's what the main Tangled Web article talked about about, before that content was deleted ([1]).

What should we do about it? Has all the useful content from that talk page and that deletion already been moved into the proper articles -- Xiaolin Showdown or Shen Gong Wu or List of Xiaolin Showdown episodes? --DavidCary (talk) 13:44, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Eartha Kitt did not voice Wuya[edit]

I have season one on DVD and Susan Silo voiced Wuya in every episode. I'm not sure where the confusion could've come from since Eartha Kitt was not involved in the show at all and Silo has a voice that is fairly distinct and easy to recognize. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.141.146.36 (talk) 06:44, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
