"This must be the turn-stuff-into-other-stuff talisman."
Jade Chan, after activating the Monkey Talisman for the first time in The Jade Monkey

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


When Lo Pei turned Shendu into a statue, the shape-shifting powers were separated from Shendu in the form of the Monkey Talisman and was scattered all over the world.

It was discovered beneath the oceans of Micronesia.

Powers and Abilities

The user of the Monkey Talisman gains the Power of Shapeshifting. The user can turn anyone and anything into any existing animal or revert someone/something transformed by this talisman into their original form. It is unknown if it can do extinct animals, e.g. a T-rex. Selecting what animal a person or object transforms into is done by verbally exclaiming the name of the animal in question, but can also work by saying the animal in one's mind. The talisman will fire a beam when used to transform others.




  • When this Talisman was first used on an inanimate object, the said object became a living animal; Jade tried to turn a log into a death ray, but it turned into a living manta ray instead. In all other instances, this talisman changes inanimate objects into animal-shaped statues.
  • The Talisman can apparently transform someone into an animal of the opposite sex. For example, Jackie has a pouch when turned into a kangaroo, and Jade has a mane when turned into a lion.
