"Puff, the Magic Dragon..."
Valmont, after activating the Dragon Talisman for the first time in Bullies

The Dragon Talisman is one of the Twelve Talismans of Shendu. After Shendu was defeated and his powers scattered, the Dragon Talisman was hidden away.


When Lo Pei turned Shendu into a statue, the dragon's flame separated from Shendu in the form of the Dragon Talisman.

It was discovered in a volcanic cave in Hawaii.

Powers and Abilities


The user of the Dragon Talisman gains the Power of Combustion, which allows them to shoot powerful fire blasts capable of causing immense destruction. The Talisman is so powerful that Jade was able to use it to knock back all nine Oni Generals with a single blast, and that Jackie could create a hole through Shendu's chest, despite his immortality granted by the Dog Talisman (though, this did not harm him, as the Horse Talisman closed up the hole). This Talisman draws power from the user's emotions and it can even allow the user to fly (although that was only showed in its debut episode and never following that).


The Dragon Talisman was first sighted in the seventh episode of season one "Bullies". This Talisman was discovered in a volcanic cave by Jackie, only to be immediately stolen from him by the Enforcers. Afterwards, Valmont fused it to his hand and uses it to steal money from the United States Mint against Shendu's wishes. However, soon afterward, Shendu's Shadowkhan returned the Talisman to Shendu.

In "The Powers Unleashed" Jackie destroys the Talismans with a full power laser blast. With no host for the powers of the Talismans, the Talisman powers go back to the corresponding animal of their zodiac. In this Talismans case, its powers return to the last living earthbound dragon, Shendu. In J2: Rise of the Dragons, the future version of Jade brings the Dragon Talisman back in time and uses it to blast Drago; her plan to destroy the Dragon's Teeth with it is thwarted by Drago, who destroys the talisman with his own Fire breath; however it is shown to still exist in the future as seen J2 Revised but that future most likely no longer exist as the present day talisman was reabsorbed by Shendu before he and his son were banished to the Netherworld forever in the final episode.
