— Chow's catchphrase

Chow is an enforcer of the Dark Hand.


Being of Chinese descent, Chow has black spiky hair and dark brown eyes, and is the physically shortest of the Enforcers. His personal trademark is a pair of orange sunglasses.

The sunglasses also function as eyeglasses, where he was near-sighted. But he removed his glasses in several other episodes and has no problems with seeing.

He also has a liking for coffee and donuts; in one episode where they were flying to China, he was digging into some crisps.


Chow often puts on a bold front, especially when he, Finn and Ratso are confronted by Jackie and Jade. He is usually a good fighter in a battle, and is the most martial-arts efficient member of the Dark Hand (before Hak Foo came along). Sometimes, he often looks over his glasses with a confident smirk.

He has a nephew named Charlie, who is unaware of his criminal activities.



Chow used to work at a store called Sun-Shack, where he was Employee of the Month three times, before joining the Dark Hand. Despite his bold front, he has mild phobias about several things, including flying, heights, and space travel (which usually come and go depending on the story plot).

Season 1

Chow and his compatriots Finn and Ratso appear as the first Enforcers Jackie encounters, at the same day Jade arrives from Hong Kong. When they threaten Jackie and attempt to damage several of Uncle's antiques (an attempt which Jackie's martial arts training easily foils), they spark Jade's attention and she decides to accompany her uncle henceforth on his quest for Shendu's talismans. Despite a long string of failures (and the accompanying bruises they sustain from Jackie, Jade and compatriots), they remain largely faithful to their boss, Valmont, even after his organization goes down the drain following Shendu's release and Valmont's subsequent (if accidental) possession by Shendu's spirit.

Season 2

In the second season, however, after the talismans are safely sealed in Section 13, there is one point at which the Enforcers split up and attempt to go their separate ways. Ratso and Chow join Finn when he tries to open his own crime syndicate (after Valmont has turned down a demand for a pay raise), but their attempt at their own career is short-lived, as Finn has foolishly decided to hunt down a cursed Irish emerald which brings its possessors bad luck.

Chow wearing the red Oni Mask.

During this season, he is turned into a Dark Chi Warrior by Daolon Wong and fights using a bo staff that could split into three chain-linked portions. He is turned back into a human by the end of the season, however.

Season 4

In the fourth season, he is forced into the servitude of Tarakudo and wears the red Oni Mask, summoning the Ninja Shadowkhan, though it is removed by the end of the episode.

Season 5

Chow as a Dragon Warrior.

In this season, Chow is working at a petting zoo with Finn and Ratso when Shendu's son Drago confronts them seeking their aid. At first, they refuse due to their experience with his father and their previous bosses until Drago threatens them into servitude. He then gave them Dragon Chi and Chow got the ability to fire heat beam blasts from his eyes (similar to the Pig Talisman power) though he must lift up his sunglasses before doing so. After they were defeated, Drago confiscated the trio's powers when they proved incompetent. Chow reappeared in the final episode to help unearth Shendu from the wreckage of Section 13 and at the close of the series, the Enforcers appear to have gone over to the good side.

Powers and Abilities

Out of the three main Enforcers, Chow is the most nimble and experienced when it comes to hand-to-hand combat. His main form of combat involves flurries of punches and kicks. Despite his experience, he is nowhere near Jackie's level. He is great with nunchuks, and the styles and noises he makes while fighting with them resemble Bruce Lee.

When turned into a Dark Chi Warrior by Daolon Wong, Chow gained the powers of Gan. He was able to perform more proficient martial arts and jump great heights. He also gained a 3 piece linked Bo Staff which he also can control its movement with his mind.

When he wore the mask of the first oni general, he possessed the ability to summon the Ninja Khan at will, as well as gaining superhuman strength and agility.

When he was turned into a dragon/human hybrid by Drago, he gained the ability to blast heat beams from his eyes, similar to the ability granted by the Pig Talisman.

He is shown to be able to drive a helicopter, motorbike and car during the series.


Chow's eyesight is incredibly poor without his glasses. If he loses or breaks his glasses, he will be unable to fight or aim properly.
