Xiaolin Showdown is a great show, but it does have a decent number of plot holes. One of the discrepancies that bothered me the most, personally, was when it was revealed that Chase Young and Master Monk Guan fought alongside Grand Master Dashi… which would make them over 1500 years old and only Chase had a reason to be able to be that old.
But, we also know that both the Xiaolin and the Heylin are capable of great magic e.g. Dashi’s creation of the Shen Gong Wu, Wuya’s powers via Heylin magic, Lao Mang Lone Soup being a Heylin immortality potion. The Xiaolin monks probably would not value eternal life, so their methods of creating an immortaility potion similar to or identical to its Heylin counterpart probably would not be well-known nor used often. But, when one’s best friend turns himself into a monster, anybody would have the incentive to extend their own life in order to save or stop their friend.
TL;DR While Chase Young used a Heylin potion to obtain immortality, Master Monk Guan found another way using Xiaolin magic. Guan’s motivation behind extending his life probably was either to stop Chase or to find out if Chase had any good left in him that could be saved.

When Kimiko told Rai that Clay didn’t like his music because he couldn’t understand the lyrics… Clay just thought that the singer was unintelligible, but the music was actually in Portuguese.

Sibini possessing Clay doesn’t count, for the record. Technically that was all Sibini’s doing, and Clay was never really evil, just possessed.

He’s worried about flying into a temper and getting into a fight because that would only justify the names he’s been called.

Le Mime’s powers extend to even being able to mime his opponent’s powers and strengths.  It’s a double-edged sword, however; when mirror-miming Clay, he had Clay’s strength, but was personally unable to withstand the force he was miming.

Chase, Dashi, and Guan are brothers.  
Guan, the oldest, was the most serious brother and held the other two in line.  Dashi was unusually gifted in magic and laid back, preferring dozing to fighting.  Chase was a powerful warrior who dabbled in magic, but still strove to be the best.  After Chase betrayed them, Dashi used his magic to give Guan immortality to help the Xiaolin Dragons in history onward keep Chase at bay.

Here! Have some convoluted headcanon.
I tried submitting this to xsheadcanons, but I couldn’t figure out how to submit a jpeg from my desktop (because they wanted a URL), and I’m brand new at this Tumblr thing. Also MS Paint is the devil.
It always bugged me that Dashi and Dojo had this big argument that the time traveling wu was in either Egypt or Europe, and then have it turn up in the Xiaolin Temple gardens. How could they both forget that? Also, Dashi, you JUST USED an hourglass called the Sands of Time! What are you trying to pull here?
Then it hit me: Dashi told Omi to wait patiently. WHAT IF he was actually being literal? “Wait here, kid; I’ll be right back with a solution.” Then he went and turned his hourglass into the Sands of Time, intending to give it to Omi so the kid could go back home. However, when he got back, Omi was gone, and Dashi was left with the Sands of Time.
Let’s see… what other plot holes are walking around in this show? Oh, hello there, Master Monk Guan! You’re looking dapper for a non-evil 1,500-year-old man!
Now the only question is…
What’s the name of the other time-traveling shen gong wu in Egypt/Europe?

We’re getting to the point where we’re tempted to just turn off submissions. It’s…a little frustrating and more than a bit disappointing, because now people just seem to be completely disregarding the rules.

It’s more than us “not wanting to” slap text onto a picture ourselves - people obviously aren’t reading our guidelines and this is troubling. We think they’re pretty reasonable and simple. There’s not even 10 of them. 

You wouldn’t join a club without knowing how things are run, right? Same deal! Please, arrivals new and old, take the time to go to BOTH the FAQ and the Rules links on our sidebar. It’ll take you 5 minutes at MOST to read BOTH.

We’ve thought about changing them to make it easier…but why should we? Very few seem to care and are just going to do what they want.
