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.

War (2)

[Tai Lung's POV]

I wrapped my hands with the bandage and made sure my claws remained out without having to flex my fingers constantly.

Although it did not hinder me in a fight, it was a different case when it was war. It would be a battle of attrition for me, especially since I was going up against 50 thousand soldiers alone.

So I could not waste any stamina or focus on my claws and by doing this, they would not retract automatically like it usually does.

I continued marching fearlessly towards the enemy army while I finished wrapping my hands. Then I coat my claws with my Chi as they started letting out black smoke and they became pitch black.

Can this be considered armament Haki? I pondered in my mind as my feet continued pacing towards the enemy.

After I was a little closer, I looked up and quickly scanned my enemy. They had spike walls which were roughly made in a hurry and towers which were built with logs and ropes.

They probably made that as quickly as they could and even though the quality was barely acceptable, the sheer amount they were able to build in a matter of days was impressive.

I looked to the side and tried to see the end of the ever-expanding spiky walls but I couldn't. They probably spanned over miles at least.

But the most interesting part about the enemy was the sheer number they had. No one would argue if you said it was impossible for one person to defeat 50 thousand soldiers.

Even if they remained still and without fighting and I killed one soldier every second, it would take me a whole day to kill them all.

That was how outnumbered I was.

Yet I did not feel a drop of nervousness in my heart against such vast enemies. If Master Rhino could slay 10 thousand serpents when he was young, I assure you I can slay 50 thousand elite soldiers of Shu.

Obviously, the serpents Master Rhino slayed were an untrained group of bandits in the valley of Woe while mine were elite soldiers of Kingdom Shu. But to make up for it, I was also much stronger than him.

So in theory, I should be able to come out victorious from this battle.

Probably.

In the end, I liked the challenge and it will be a great way to get a reputation other than just being labelled as a villain due to Oogway's words. Not only that, it will be a huge moral boost to my soldiers for the other wars to come.

The soldiers who stood opposite to me were mostly made up of primates ranging from Chingpanzee, Mandrills, Gorillas, Baboon etc but there were also few other types of animals with them.

The Kingdom of Shu, also known as Shu Han, is a kingdom located in the West and their territory is characterized by rugged terrain, including mountains, rivers, and dense forests. This geographical position provided natural defences against invading forces and helped shape Shu's military strategies.

So although the soldiers in front of me were made to stop any forces from invading, they were far from being their last line of defence.

This was another reason why I came alone here, attacking from the North. The north especially had rough terrains which were not very suitable for an army to travel much less an army with iron cannons.

So it would be easier and more convenient if a strong individual force could spear through the northern defence alone.

I continued walking towards the army and when I finally came into the range of arrows, they did not waste any time and started shooting at me.

I still did not make any big moves as I easily evaded the arrows while walking. I also swiped my claws to cut any arrows making their way towards me and they quickly realized their method of attack was a waste of effort.

I took off my cloak and dropped it on the ground. I threw on a huge smile on my face as I started picking up pace.

"What? Why is he here?" I could hear the commotion that was followed by my reveal.

"Why the hell is Tai Lung here? Is he really planning on taking all of us alone, is he insane?"

"I thought he was supposed to be the Supreme General, why isn't he with his army?"

I smiled at their confusion as it was exactly what we planned and expected. Although it was true that it was strange to see a General fighting alone without his army, this was the best way we could win this war with the least amount of casualty.

Although I have said I knew many war strategies and trained in the art of war since I was young, none of what I learned applied to the army under me.

I know how to sabotage the enemies, how to plan a meticulous ambush, how to use the terrain to my advantage and so on, but none of my teachings about war applied to warfare that utilizes cannons.

It was a drastic change in tactics and nature. A completely different kind of war, one which was unlike the direct confrontation between armies.

So whether I was leading it or Shen was leading it, our strategy would be pretty much the same. In fact, I think it was more suitable that the creator of the weapons strategize on how to best use his weapons.

I put the last train of thought away and I got on all fours before I started sprinting towards the army. My sudden change in pace caught the army off guard but the distance between us was still plentiful so they had ample time to react.

Or so they thought.

"Do not underestimate him just because he is by himself. Remember!! You are all facing Tai Lung and if history has anything to teach us then it is to never underestimate him!!"

"Do not hold back! SHIELD WALL!!" The general of the army, a rough-looking Madrill yelled out to his soldiers.

I continued sprinting towards them with the speed of a Cheetah. I kicked up dust and ash with every stretch of my limbs and that told me that they had probably burned the place to clear up the vegetation in their preparation for war.

The morning sun was up in the sky and lit up our battleground. We were a few kilometres apart but under the bright sky, they could clearly see me approaching as I quickly closed the distance between us.

They braced for the upcoming battle and kept their eyes on my figure until suddenly, I vanished from their view.

"Flashsteps." I moved at a speed so fast that I became a blur which they could not see from such a distance.

My movements were swift and shockingly, I did not kick up the ash under my feet. There was no indication of my earlier existence as the place fell into absolute silence.

Seconds ticked away as the soldiers turned their heads in search of me. They questioned if I was a mere illusion or a ghost as they lost sight of me.

"Whats going on? Where is he?" They asked each other.

The General on the other hand was silent and his expression was grave.Years of instincts honed in battles won and lost screamed at him.

"Everyone brace yourself!!!!" The Mandrill general screamed out of pure instinct and not long after, an explosion erupted from the frontlines.

Bodies flew out like pieces of derbies as I crashed into the shield wall they had erected. The wooden spikes and pieces of armour exploded out, injuring multiple soldiers.

I had covered the few kilometres distance between us in seconds.

I had a huge grin on my face and my eyes glowed bright yellow before I moved further into their ranks.

Then I started wreaking havoc on the battlefield. They had no time to react and some were still not sure what was happening but I did not wait for them to catch up,

Bodies started falling.

I put myself in the middle of the army and started launching an all out attack.

I was careful to spare as much soldier as possible though. After we capture the kingdom, these same soldiers were going to be our army which we would march to the conquer the rest of the kingdoms.

They were precious resources so I used nerve attacks as much as I could or I would cut thier tendons to put them down.

I was outnumbered by a huge margin so I had to make sure each swing of my limb took down multiple soldiers and every movement I made did not go to waste.

I could not sacrifice one movement to take down one person so I had to get creative with the way I fought. And my mastery of all the Kung Fu and my unmatched knowledge in combat allowed me to do just that.

I stitched together movements to create something more than just one effect, each sweep of my leg, and every swipe of my claws were done with multiple purposes. To block an incoming attack, to take down one person, to set up for the next attack, to cause distraction to the others etc.

"Get him!! Don't let him escape!!" They screamed as they finally got out of their initial shock,. They swarmed at me like millions of ants, my enemies came like ocean waves as their suffocating number threatened to swallow me.

Then I leapt to the sky and escaped the swarm. I kicked the air and propelled myself higher and higher into the sky.

The soldier could only look up and marvel at the show of impossible feat before I changed positon and shot towards the ground like a falling star.

I infused Chi in my attack and crashed on the ground.

*BOOOOM!!*

The attack sent out shockwaves and turned the earth into waves as they spread out and the vibration caused many to fall down while some even broke their legs.

There was a shocked silence in the air as the reality of the situation settled in on everyone. They looked at their fallen comrades and replayed my feats of strength in their minds.

A consecutive realization morphed each of their expression and it finally clicked in their mind.

This was a war.

A war. That means at this moment, 50 thousand of them and one of me were equal and would be fighting for victory.

It will not be an easy fight. The thought of capturing me or killing me with ease died in thier mind.

It's me against them.

The weight of my name bore down on their heart, and it was heavy. It was no longer a tale they heard in the tavern, no longer a rumour someone told someone. It was more than a story, I was more than a villain the hero put down.

Tai Lung.

They felt the name had a new meaning to it. The scene in front of them and the name with all its reputation synch in thier mind.

..

..

..

"WHWAAAAAAAA!!!!"

"RAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!"

"HYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!"

They yelled out with all of their might, trying to disperse the fear and panic that slowly knocked at the backdoor of their heart.

It was fight or die. So they charged at me with everyone they had.

The battle finally starts. The war begun.

"Hahahahahaha" I laugh.

"Come at me!"
