More than a Dragon Warrior

In the depths of Chroch Gom Prison, held down by chains and immobile by a turtle shell, a broken warrior had been imprisoned for two decades. He opened his eyes as deep yellow pierced through the dark. Once filled with hatred and rage, his eyes now held the wisdom and depth of two souls, two lives. One was Tai Lung, the son of Master Shifu, born in ancient China where Kung Fu ruled supreme. The other was also Tai Lung, the son of man, born in a modern world where his current world was nothing but fiction. Two lives. Two souls. Now one entity. He was armed with knowledge he should not possess and the wisdom of two lifetimes. So when he breaks out from the chain of his imprisonment, he not only breaks the physical chains but also the chains of Fate and Destiny. Destined to be a villain, a stepping stone for the Dragon Warrior, he became something more. He should not have happened, he was an anomaly, a variable beyond the calculation of the universe. His existence had changed everything in the universe. He smiled, knowing that the old tortoise was not so wise, because he was wrong. . . There are accidents. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #The cover is mine and commissioned by @fartzxy on IG and @fuzxyyy on X #The world of Kung Fu Panda does not belong to me. This is a work of fiction for the sole purpose of entertainment without any intention of offence to any party. #The story will revolve around the trilogy. But there will be canon facts and knowledge taken from the fourth movie and the TV series. #If you expect evil Tai Lung and edgy development where he kill the Furious Five and shits, this is not for you. In my opinion, Tai Lung was never even a villain in the movies so no evil MC. #If you expect a hero Tai Lung where he accompany Po and act as the Dragon Warrior, this is also not for you. In my opinion, Tai Lung was never good in the movies. #Tigress isn't the FL so if you came here expecting two cats kissing and having babies, there will be none.

Despair

[Tai Lung's POV]

Monkey King was known as the Sage of the West because at one point during my time in prison, there was a war in the West and the Monkey King was an active player.

He made a name for himself as a ruthless and bloodthirsty demon of a warrior but that was until he got enlightenment. He attained Inner Peace and tranquillity and after that, he single-handled ended the war in the West Province.

After he attained Inner Peace, he sought out harmony and peace instead of chaos and war. He earned the title Sage of the West due to his endeavour.

But that warrior known to pursue peace more than anything else leapt at me. He flipped in the sky and descended towards me like a shooting star.

That was not just words either. He was literally glowing yellow and his body cut straight towards me.

Inner Peace, the ability to create miracles and achieve the impossible.

He had it too. He was one of the few who had attained inner peace and by far the youngest Master to achieve it.

His body was bathed in yellow energy as he whizzed past me. I twisted my body in an incredible show of acrobatics and dodge his kick.

*Boom!!!*

His kick was strong enough that it caused an explosion when it hit the ground. It seems he had mastered a way to enhance his whole body using his Chi through inner peace.

He was enhanced to an impossible level. That was his miracle.

'What a waste.' I thought to myself when I saw the straightforward use of inner peace. It just goes to show how an ability could be so different in power depending on the user.

Let's show him how to truly utilize the ability of Inner Peace.

I crouch down and focused my mind on my next action as all of the other masters had finally reached me. They attacked me from different angles and directions, all at the same time to make sure I was defeated.

They did not have the luxury of holding back against me.

I continued crouching down and my eyes remained shut until the very last moment. When I opened my eyes they were glowing bright yellow and the world stilled.

The concept behind Shunpo was getting from point A to point B in the least amount of steps. I have mastered this technique and the concept behind it to such a degree that I could use it in my attacks.

Hitting targets A and B in the quickest and shortest way possible. My Chi reacted to the miracles I desired and I felt a huge chunk of my Chi being used for the impossible feat.

Due to my huge reserves, I never noticed my Chi draining but this time I could feel a dent in there. I was pushing the limit of a small miracle.

My body became a flash as I kicked Master Croc and Master Lizard under their jaws. I was too quick that the world hadn't even realized it yet. Then I moved like a flash towards the others who had attacked me.

I gave an uppercut to Master Ox and I hit Master Elephant right in the abdomen as hard as I could, with my infused Chi in my attacks.

After that, I went back to my place and crouched back down. There were five phantoms of my image attacking them all at the same time as time resumed.

The world finally caught up to my actions and reality shook in confusion. It shows six images of me.

*Whoosh!*

*POW!!* x4

Four attacks but it sounded like one. I seemingly remained in place as they were all thrown back due to my attack.

A small and satisfied smile tug my lips when I locked eyes with the Monkey King. This was how to do it.

This is what achieving the impossible looks like.

My eyes caught a gasp coming from the side and I saw Gazelle looking at the display with a shocked face. She was the only one wise enough to not attack me as she had the ability to tell how strong someone was.

Other than me, she was the only one who knew they did not stand a chance.

'Smart girl.'

I turned my focus back on the Monkey King but he was gone. I used my senses to figure out where he went and my ears picked up a disturbance in the wind.

'Above!!'

I looked up to see Monkey King Flying down at me. His whole body had dimmed down a bit but the palm of his hand was glowing brightly even in the morning sun.

"Arrogant Cat!! Take this!!" He screamed and pushed his palm toward me.

My instincts screamed at me so I used flash steps to move away immediately. Right after that, a heavy force pushed down on the place I stood before, leaving a gigantic hand mark 20 feet long and 10 feet wide.

*SHOOOOOOOOO!!*

*BOOOOOOOM!!!*

.

.

The earth was left to be forever traumatized. It was forced to bear the consequences of the Monkey who missed.

I did not see the attack but I knew exactly when and where it was coming. I stood at the very edge of the handprint as the force barely caught my fur.

He landed on the ground with a frustrated face as his surprise attack did not do anything. I tilted my head at him.

"Arrogant?" I asked and using Shunpo, I was behind him in one single stride.

"Did you forget, who I am?" I asked and he turned around and threw a hook which I easily caught with my hand. His Chi which was covering his body fought against mine but my Chi proved to be heavier and stronger.

'So he is using the Chi covering his body as an armour too. Then he focused his Chi on his palm before throwing out that devastating attack.' I analysed it quickly.

The way he used his Chi reminded me of the way Hunters used Nen from Hunter x Hunter.

I watched in rapt attention as his Chi flowed around his body and focused on the arm I just caught and one of his legs. His Chi was glowing so it was visible to everyone how his arm and leg became brighter while the rest dimmed.

I could tell what he was trying to do.

He planted his shining leg on the ground and then he flung me off my feet. His strength was surprising for his build as I was thrown away like a pillow

It was truly interesting. I have been so focused on what I could achieve with my Chi that I forgot to take into account what my Chi can do by itself.

I should really look into it afterwards.

I planted my feet on the ground and I also used my claws to slide to a stop. Then the five masters were on me again, Master Ox charged at me like the bull he was and Master Lizard possessed wings on his feet as he moved around in a blur.

My main disadvantage here was their number. So I figured I should reduce that number quickly.

I dodged a kick from Master Lizard and we exchanged fast speed attacks for a few seconds. Our attacks became a competition of speed as our arms seemed to multiply to twelve.

I growled and put more strength behind my attacks but before I could overwhelm him, I had to leap back and dodge Master Ox's charge.

The ground shook with every step he took and he quickly turned around and came at me again. I dodged a flying sword thrown by my Master Croc while exchanging attacks with Master Lizard before everyone retreated from me.

A shadow loomed over Mr and I looked up just in time to see the gigantic body of Master Elephant falling down on me. His sheer weight and size made it seem like he was coming at me slowly but he covered the distance rather quickly.

They should've learned by now that I was too fast to be caught by something like this but they tried it again anyway. I moved away from my place as Master Elephant crashed in my previous position.

*THA-DOOOM!!!*

A defeating explosion materialized and it was followed by a quake of the earth. I was thrown off my feet due to the tremor and the intense shockwave that followed forced me to protect my face from flying sticks and pebbles.

It was a way to get my feet off the ground, similar to what Master Rhino did in our fight. Master Ox's immediately slammed on my body before my feet could touch the ground.

Like master like student. Master Rhino must be proud.

I roared at Master Ox as he continued slamming his head against my body, taking me somewhere far away. He spun his whole body and my arm got stuck between his long horns as it got twisted along with his body.

He was going to break my arm.

"Not today." I said and my arm started glowing white. My fur stood up as if caught on electricity and I pumped a shit ton of Chi on my arm for enhancement.

An enhancement beyond normal. It was something I copied from Monkey King moments ago.

I whipped my arm and my newfound strength was even more impressive than I thought as I broke Master Ox's horn instantly.

*Crack!*

"YAHHHHHH!!!!" He screamed in pain and I couldn't help but smile a huge smile. I caught the broken horn which was a couple of feet long and curved, before I stabbed his back.

He let out a pained roar before he stopped moving and feel down limply as he should. I stabbed him right at his nerve point so he was out for good.

The fight almost reminded me of my sparring with the Furious Five but the only difference was that these people did not know how to work as a team like my students.

Master Lizard with his speed was the first to reach me again. His body was flexible and fast so it was difficult to attack his nerves.

He threw a punch towards me, expecting a similar exchange as before but this time I used my claw and swiped at his body. Four cuts appeared on his torso and blood spilt out instantly.

I could turn him into minced meat but I didn't.

He stayed suspended in shock and I used that time to hit two of his nerve points.

That was two down, three more to get.

..

..

"Tai Lung!!" Monkey King yelled at me, "Don't kill them! Let's talk things out!!"

I dropped Master Lizard's body to the side and I stepped on Master Ox's head while I looked at the remaining three in amusement. Master Elephant was not suited for a fast-paced battle or teamwork fight.

He was stronger individually or in a war.

Master Croc was known for his impenetrable scales so his style of Kung Fu relied mostly on tanking his opponent's attack and counterattacking. When left to fight someone of my calibre as a team, he did not know what to do

The only remaining threat was Monkey King but he knew he couldn't win. I could tell from his eyes that he was shocked to see me using his technique just now too.

They can't win and they realized that now.

Which was why they wanted to talk instead of fighting. When they were not sure of winning, they instantly cowered again.

But this time, I did not want to talk.

"You can talk in the spirit realm!!" I said and returned his words before I blurred towards them.

I left several after-images and threw a punch which Monkey King was barley able to dodge. He gritted his teeth under the weight of my strength and his feet got planted on a broken ground.

Their once confident face was now washed with despair.
