This animated series combines extreme silliness and extreme action as it follows the adventures of a young monk named Omi who is training to hone his supernatural martial arts powers at a Xiaolin temple. Together with a strange crew that includes a misplaced cowboy and Brazilian circus star, the young fighter engages in mystical quests to find sacred power objects, which many other hunters are also pursuing, but for less than noble ends. When two fighters both want to take possession of one of these objects, a challenge takes place called a Xiaolin Showdown. This isn't just like any other fight; the two challengers are transported to an alternate reality for their combat, and each fighter must use their powers to win. These young trainees are some of the most gifted martial artists in the world, so they should have no trouble going up against foes like the boy genius Jack Spencer -- a super fighter and super poser, who talks about himself in the third person.
