The Tiger Talisman is one of the Twelve Talismans of Shendu. After Shendu was defeated and his powers scattered, the Tiger Talisman was hidden away.
In the past, this talisman power was owned by a Noble Tiger of the Chinese zodiac. At some point, Shendu drained its power into himself. When Lo Pei turned Shendu into a statue, the Noble Tiger's power separated from Shendu in the form of the Tiger Talisman and was scattered all over the world.
It was discovered in a pie during a pie eating competition in the USA.
Powers and Abilities
The user of the Tiger Talisman gains the Power of Balance. Shendu used it to bind the conflicting powers of the other Talismans together into one, unified whole.
When halved, the Talisman also splits the user's Yin (light side) and Yang (dark side) halves into two separate beings, each holding one half of the Talisman. The Talisman halves must be reunited in order to refuse the two halved beings and the Talisman. It can be used on more than one character even if it's halved. If the Talisman's activation is interrupted, the user may not split into two separate bodies but instead have the yin and yang personalities divide while still remain fused within a single body.
The Talisman can also be used to find the other half on an object.
The Tiger Talisman possesses the power of balance. Within each and every one of us lie conflicting forces, yin and yang, light and dark, good and evil.
- Only 3 characters have suffered from the split-personality effect from the Talisman. These characters are: Jackie, Captain Black, and Spring-heeled Jack.
- Therefore, out of all the Talismans in the series, the Tiger Talisman has the least amount of users.
- Jackie is the only character to suffer from the split personality effect more than once. In fact, it has happened three times.
- Hak Foo once attempted to use this Talisman in combat, but was unaware that the Talisman grants spiritual balance, not physical balance. Jade also made the same mistake when first hearing of its properties when she tried to use it to stay balanced on a tower of books.
- Unlike the other Talismans, the Tiger Talisman depicts two tigers instead of one, each facing opposite sides, like the Taoist symbol.
- In Taoism, Yin represents darkness, femininity and passiveness, while Yang represents light, masculinity and activity. In the series, Yin is called light and Yang is called dark. Otherwise the behavior of the halves of a separated being corresponds with the sides they are called as.
- In Tale of the Demon Tail, Jade attached the Tiger Talisman to a halved friendship medallion, somehow causing the other half to be attracted to the Talisman when the two halves come into contact with each other. No explanation is given for this.
- In The Return of the Pussycat, the Tiger Talisman did not split in half when it split Jackie and Spring-heeled Jack. In all other episodes, the Tiger Talisman splits in half when activated.
