ten People grew up with movies
kung fu panda happens to be one of the longest running anime franchises to continue releasing content, as many television shows and spin-off media were released alongside the movies.
This meme shows how someone who was only three years old when the first movie was released in 2008 will be 19 in 2024 for Kung Fu Panda 4. The films have entertained a whole generation of children and there is no doubt that many adults will discover the fourth installment.
kung fu panda is considered one of the best films in Dreamworks animation history primarily due to the balance of humor and themes involved. Po learned that becoming the Dragon Warrior meant accepting himself, which is best described using this meme.
Master Oogway was aware that the true Dragon Warrior would be able to see his own worth. The scroll was designed in such a way that the holder would see himself. This meme sums up how this aspect works, as viewers have to look a little deeper to understand.
8 Po and Mr. Ping’s turbulent relationship with noodles
Po was raised by Mr. Ping with the belief that noodles should be Po’s greatest passion. This meme makes a joke that everything Mr. Ping talked about with Po had to do with noodles.
Po’s journey began as he reluctantly continued with Mr. Ping’s hopes that he would continue the family business. The meme also captures Po’s disappointment that his life didn’t happen until he had the chance to be the Dragon Warrior.
seven Ongoing constant action
Kung Fu Panda 4 is one of the most exciting Dreamworks projects to look forward to due to the action that is sure to be on display. This meme proves that the pacing of movies never slows down and pausing just about anytime will yield awkward results.
The scene in the meme is when Po is in the middle of a fight scene, which is how the whole movie will appear if someone stops. Fans are enjoying the series with the guarantee that there will be some amazing footage to watch.
6 Master Oogway’s wisdom is legendary
Master Oogway fits the wise old man trope that has been around for decades. This meme compares Oogway to three other pop culture sages, who are Iroh from Avatar: The Last Airbender, Gandalf’s The Lord of the Ringsand Star Wars’ Yoda master.
Oogway’s role in the kung fu panda movies is to provide advice to everyone involved. His vagueness is deliberate as he wants others to figure things out for themselves. Oogway’s puzzling wisdom even appeared in the spirit realm in the third film.
5 How did Tai Lung feel when Po was chosen over him
Tai Lung was furious when he was denied the title of Dragon Warrior. Not only was Tai Lung furious at being rejected by Master Oogway, he was mad with anger when he learned that a panda was the designated Dragon Warrior.
This meme best illustrates how Tai Lung and Oogway saw Po from their perspective. As for Oogway, Po was a nice surprise while Tai Lung thought the panda stole his glory. Even Po’s face in the meme fits since he’s happy pretty much all the time.
4 Master’s attitude towards the Po’s teaching on inner peace
Shifu wasn’t exactly the most helpful teacher when Po was seeking inner peace. Although he didn’t avoid Po, Shifu had the general attitude shown in this meme, in that he just didn’t think Po’s teaching was his problem. As someone who successfully trained Po in Dragon Warrior, it’s understandable why Shifu felt he had done enough.
Additionally, the meme shows Shifu’s usual behavior of not caring, which is just an act he does to hide how much he really cares. He was able to achieve inner peace by understanding where he needed to focus his efforts and putting all his effort into training Po here was not what he needed to do.
3 How did Po think he was born
The first film made no effort to explain why the panda Po was the son of a goose, with the implication that viewers were just meant to accept it. This meme pokes fun at the concept by faking Po and Mr. Ping’s dynamic as factual in the real world.
Kung Fu Panda 2 chose to approach him directly when Mr. Ping revealed that he had adopted Po, which came as a hilarious shock to the latter. Po relaying this fact to others was a recurring gag in the film for the fact that he was the only one who didn’t see this coming.
2 Valley’s overreliance on noodles
There are many different personalities found in kung fu panda, but the love of noodles unites everyone in the valley. The few times when something monumental happens and catches everyone’s attention is when the noodle distribution is interrupted.
This meme came true when Po stopped selling noodles and was selected as a Dragon Warrior. This regained prominence at the end of the film when Mr. Ping encouraged Po to return to fight Tai Lung, which is when Po left the noodle cart again. It turns out something is to be expected whenever Po quits her job with the noodles.
1 How Shifu Trolls Po to Teach Him
The way Shifu teaches Po in the first movie was basically to push him to learn. The first time Po showed skill in martial arts was when Shifu challenged him to eat, only to continue snatching his food. The resulting fight became a popular scene on the show.
It also established how much Po needed another kind of encouragement to get the best out of him. Po managed to beat Shifu during their exchange, which confirmed in the master’s mind that Po was very determined when the time demanded it.
