The Ox Talisman is one of the Twelve Talismans of Shendu. After Shendu was defeated and his powers scattered, the Ox Talisman was hidden away.
In the past, Shendu's strength was drained into a Noble Ox. At some point, Shendu drained its power back into himself. When Lo Pei turned Shendu into a statue, the Noble Ox's power separated from Shendu in the form of the Ox Talisman and was scattered, along with the other talismans, all over the world.
The Ox Talisman was discovered by El Toro Fuerte in an ancient temple in Mexico.
Powers and Abilities
The user of the Ox Talisman gains the power of super strength. The exact limits of this strength (if any) are unknown, but users are certainly well-within superhuman levels.
With the talisman, the user is able to effortlessly lift objects weighing multiple tons with one arm and throw them, knock back opponents significantly larger than them and cause great destruction, like demolishing an entire building, slicing a mountain in half and creating a hole in a wall by placing one's finger on it.
Shendu bluffed once, "You may have the Ox, but relative to me, all that makes you is a very strong mouse!"
Discovery of the Ox Talisman
The Ox Talisman was first sighted in the third episode of season one "The Mask of El Toro Fuerte". This Talisman was found in an ancient Mexican temple by El Toro Fuerte. Later found by Jackie on the mask of El Toro Fuerte. The Ox is most commonly used by Jackie when he needs to fight larger enemies.
Later Findings of the Ox Talisman
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 case, The Yak
