Please keep an eye on that guy - > User:Malikishak91 as he keeps using speculations like 'possibly by the jade emperor' and making up stories and everytime I fix his errors he keeps changing them back Shendu is a noble animal and his powers were scattered into the noble animals once not the opposite, Shendu did not drain random powers from the noble animals they were originally his
I watched the episodes once, you know. The original 12 Noble Animals are the TRUE owners of the powers. Shendu coveted them for himself. Lo Pei then turns Shendu into a statue and the powers are separated from the Demon Sorceror in the physical form of the 12 talismans and are then scattered around the world. That explains why all the talismans have the animals' outlines, as they are the original owners of the talisman powers.
Lo Pei casts the spell on Shendu only ONCE.
Furthermore, the talismans are of good magic as oppose to the Demon Sorcerors' evil one. Uncle quotes, "As such, the talisman magic will be drawn to Noble Animals, those most worthy of their regal ancestors. Twelve living creatures; each about to receive an extraordinary gift." This prooves that the ancient Noble Animals are the true owners of the talisman powers. Since all of them are already deceased, their worthiest descendants received the powers once the talismans are destroyed by Jackie Chan.
If the powers are originally Shendu's, the powers will be returned to him instead of the descendants of the original Noble Animals once Daolan Wong resurrected him. Shendu receives the Dragon Talisman power simply by default since dragons are already extinct in the modern era.

The powers cannot return to him as he was banished in the demon world, once he was resurrected the only remaining power without a host returned to him which was fire, the powers return to the noble animals because of Lo Pei's spell
