|“||Finally! A worthy opponent! Our battle will be legendary!||„|
|~ Tai Lung's most famous quote.|
Tai Lung is the main and sole antagonist of Kung Fu Panda. He was the adoptive son and former student of Master Shifu, and a powerful master of the Leopard Style of kung fu.
Trained by Shifu at the Jade Palace, Tai Lung was raised under the impression that he was to become the prophesied Dragon Warrior. However, after he was denied the title by Master Oogway, Tai Lung revealed his true dark nature by ravaging the Valley, resulting in his incarceration for twenty years. After breaking out of prison, he sought to claim the Dragon Scroll and take his place as the Dragon Warrior once again, fighting and defeating many warriors in his pursuit. However, despite being a warrior of great strength and determination, Tai Lung finally met his match when he was defeated by Po, the true Dragon Warrior.

He, such as his nephew, can repeat the movement just by seeing it), Pressure Point Strikes, Acrobatics, Paralysis Inducement, Weapon Mastery, Resistance to Fire Manipulation (Walked through and wielded it)
Attack Potency: Large Building level (Defeated the entire Furious Five at once. Overpowered Shifu and nearly killed him. Fought against Po [who is should be equal to him] and punched him with enough force to create a large crater. Easily destroyed a building with a kick.)
Speed: Subsonic (Tai Lung is capable of defying gravity to an extent, shown when he sprinted and jumped up enormous stalactites while they were falling in mid-air spanned massive bridges in just seconds. Superior to Tigress, who caught an arrow fired from a jade zombie.)

Durability: Large Building level (Crashed through multiple buildings without any visible damage. Took a fall of hundreds of meters [he was very damaged but still alive]. Should have comparable durability to his Striking Strength.)
Stamina: Extremely high (Despite being locked in prison for 20 years, once he freed himself, he showed no ill signs to his health and was able to take down every guard that stood in his path, what's more he was still able to move over great distances [he crossed a bridge confirmed to be 1000 miles long] without tiring, after that defeated the entire Furious Five with no fatigue, and considering his obsession with the Dragon Scrool, it stands to reason that he was travelling to the Jade Palace non-stop [his non-stop travel to the Jade Palace lasted in just over a week, because Po trained to be on par with Tai Lung in just over a week, entire week without rest], after he fought with Shifu in a lengthy fight, and after he endured prolonged battle with Po, and even after falling from height hundred of meters in his final fight he was able to stand back to his feet [remind despite being blocked for 20 years in prison, and after that he was able to move for over a week without tiring]. He really has this level of stamina if not higher, and has one of the greatest stamina in this francise)
