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.
In the past, this talisman power was owned by a Noble Dragon of the Chinese zodiac. At some point, Shendu drained its power into himself. When Lo Pei turned Shendu into a statue, the Noble Dragon's power separated from Shendu in the form of the Dragon Talisman and was scattered all over the world.
It was discovered in a volcanic cave.
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). The 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 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 stolen from him shortly 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.
Appearances in other seasons
In "The Powers Unleashed" Jackie destroys the Talismans with a full power laser blast. With no host for the powers of the Talismans, the Talismans go back to the corresponding animal of their zodiac. In this Talismans case, it's 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. As an Easter egg this specific Talisman can be found in at least one scene in all of the Season 5 episodes.
- The Dragon Talisman's power is Shendu's favorite as stated in "Day of the Dragon".
- The Dragon Talisman is prominently featured in every season opening except season 2 when Jackie catches Jade playing with it. This includes season 3 when it isn't even in Talisman form for most of the season.
