Where is the people that has not robbed the wealth of another And what shall we call man who So listen, you who hold fast to the wonderful secrets He knows every secret and stands behind very thought. He does every Consider the soothsayers, those teachers of sin. Hear now what wisdom is. How can a man understand without knowledge or hearing? His response to this was less than cordial. Po, though it takes some teasing out to get to it.
Once Master Shifu figures out Po needs the incentive of food to make him fight well, Po learns very quickly. Good Morning, Crono : Done to Po at the beginning of the movie when his dad wakes him up from a dream and tells him to wait tables. Po: " Oh-ho-ho! My tenders! Tai Lung : You're bluffing! Shifu didn't teach you that!
Po : No, he didn't. Tropes I to J. It should be obvious that Mr. Ping, a goose, is not the biological father of Po, a panda. At one point it appears as if Ping is about to tell Po the truth about his parentage, but instead he reveals the secret ingredient of his Secret Ingredient Soup. I'm THE big fat panda! If I Can Only Move : Tai Lung's escape from the prison depended on the feather of the messenger goose, and being able to move his own tail. The prison guards apparently didn't think of restraining that part. Unfortunately, he dishonors that promise by mistreating Po in an attempt to get rid of him, something he regrets later after Po calls him out on it.
I Have No Son! There's more to it than that, though — Po suffers from extremely low self-esteem and despises the life he has now. Impact Silhouette : During the final battle, Po is sent crashing into the Earth by Tai Lung , leaving behind a shallow crater with a massive circumference. Shortly after, when Tai Lung crashes to Earth, he not only falls harder, he leaves a hole not just with an impression of his body, but somehow his tail as well.
Impairment Shot : Po knocks himself unconscious trying to get in to see the Furious Five.
REVIEW: Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Scroll - AppleMagazine
We get the Hit Flash , then the eye-shaped blink-blink as he awakens to see Master Oogway pointing at him as his choice for the Dragon Warrior. Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy : A rare good example: armed with ballistas, crossbows, and dozens of archers, the rhino guardsmen of Chorh-Gom prison can't hit one single chained down prisoner even if that prisoner is Tai Lung. Technically, the rhino guardsmen are actually pretty good shots, as shown when a single rhino guard is able to accurately hit a stick of dynamite on the ceiling of the prison.
The problem is that Tai Lung is just that good. After Shifu opens it for him, Po gives him the "after I loosened it up" line. Improbable Chopsticks Skill : Part of Po's improvised training. Shifu as well, as he taught Po. Improv Fu : Half the final battle in the first film is Po fighting in this manner by using the items he's familiar with in his native town, frustrating Tai Lung.
A stray feather from Zeng's body lands near where Tai Lung is being held captive, and he uses it to unlock the cuffs holding him. Incendiary Exponent : Yes, Tai Lung is badass he can set his paws on fire and not even get burned!
Incompletely Trained : Po and Tai Lung both , for different reasons. Ineffectual Loner : Defied. Tigress decides on her own to face and defeat Tai Lung. But before she leaves the town, the four other Furious show up and say they'll go with her, rather than trying to dissuade her from it. You're just a big I'm THE big, fat panda!
The first movie manages not to bring this up at all, aside from a Bait-and-Switch in which his dad sits him down to tell him an important secret The sequel provides some backstory, though, and the third film expands on this further. There's also Shifu's adoption of Tai Lung. Interspecies Romance : Played with in the credits when Viper kisses the Po doll after it's tossed to her. Considering the fact that she was the nicest one to Po during his training, this definitely has some potential.
Shifu: Oh you know this hold? Tropes K to M. Kevlard : One reason Po is chosen to become the Dragon Warrior. It makes him immune to nerve attacks! Ki Attacks : Shifu and Tai Lung. Kick the Dog : Shifu spends the first minute of his fight with Tai Lung on the defensive, blocking or dodging his attacks while trying to reason with him. He doesn't go on the offensive until Tai Lung taunts him about Oogway's passing. Killed Off for Real : Downplayed for Oogway who ascends but has a brief appearance in the series. Tai Lung has never been truly confirmed whether he died or not.
Likewise, Vachir and his rhino guards are also never confirmed if they died or not during Tai Lung's escape, but we do see at least one rhino moving after Tai Lung blows them out the prison's doors with dynamite. Land of Dragons : This is set in a version of medieval China, after all It's made on purpose , of course.
Last Request : Oogway almost begs Shifu to train Po, just before ascending to a higher plane of existence. Last-Second Chance : The directors' commentary implies that Po's sharing of the Dragon Scroll's true meaning to Tai Lung could have meant his redemption, if he chose to accept it. He doesn't. I thought you said acupuncture would make me feel better! Mantis: Trust me, it will. It's just not easy finding the right nerve points under all this— Po: Fat?
Mantis: Fur! I was gonna say fur. Po: Sure you were. Po: Oh, hey, thanks. Po: No, really, I Crane: Ev -er. Po: I should probably stop talking. Shifu: If you can. Tropes N to O. The Furious Five are surprised that Tai Lung didn't kill them when he defeated them, they consider his killing Shifu to be inevitable, and Po thinks Shifu has died and is corrected when he closes his eyes after the battle. Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! However he only did that because Oogway said Tai Lung would escape, therefore it could be considered Oogway's fault. Also counts as Self-Fulfilling Prophecy.
Though to be fair, Oogway did warn Shifu against trying to prevent it. Oogway: One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.

Tai Lung: Ahhh Shifu: It's very bad news Oogway: Oh, Shifu, there is just "news". There is no good or bad. Shifu: Your vision was right! Tai Lung has broken out of prison! He's on his way! Oogway: [freezes in place] That is bad news. Zeng: Can we run now?! Vachir: [tiny voice] Yes. Tropes P to R.

The Paralyzer : Tai Lung's nerve strike, which he learned from Oogway. Thanks to Po's Kevlard nature, it doesn't work against the Dragon Warrior, only succeeding in tickling him. Parody Sue : Po's dream as the totally awesome Legendary Warrior. Peaceful in Death : Parodied at the end: Shifu : Wow. It is as Oogway foretold: you are the Dragon Warrior. You have brought peace to this valley.
In an email to FoxNews. The Hebrew writing on the En-Gedi scroll has consonants, but does not have vowels. Besides the Dead Sea Scrolls, the newly-readable document represents the oldest scroll in Hebrew from the first five books of the Bible the Pentateuch , according to the study, which published on Wednesday. Michael Segal, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a coauthor on the study, said that he and a colleague, Emanuel Tov, analyzed the scroll after the team in Kentucky made it readable. They first thought that it might contain all the books of the Torah, but later realized it was part of Leviticus.
