Xiaolin Showdown Abridged

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
While it hardly seems necessary to give a reason for giving the gift of comedy, we would like to express that our feelings toward Xiaolin Showdown Abridged go beyond those given to a mere parody. Little Kuriboh has written that while Yu-Gi-Oh the Abridged Series is a fulfilling and enjoyable project for him, his greater purpose for making it is to bring attention to a great plot and cast of characters that often take a backseat to the show's commercial agenda. In this spirit, we also feel that our productions are in themselves purposeful in addition to enjoyable. Despite its seemingly traditional setup , Xiaolin Showdown is a one-of-a-kind show that meant a tremendous amount to us and our friends when it was on during our childhood. The series may have ended, but its disappearance from the airwaves altogether is heartbreaking and denying the growing generation a beautifully rendered, wholesome, and thought provoking cartoon. As described in its first Kid's WB promo, it is indeed a masterpiece, and deserves to live on. We know that there are many who feel the same way, and bringing attention back to the awesome adventures of the Four Dragons is a necessary mission, as well as a wonderfully gratifying one.

Xiaolin Showdown the Abridged Series follows the fun-filled adventures of Xiaolin Dragons-in-training as they fight the forces of evil, and Jack Spicer. It is currently at 11 episodes and can be found here. It hasn't been updated since August 2010.

Tropes used in Xiaolin Showdown Abridged include:
  • Actor Allusion: Jack Spicer tends to say "Bejabbers" as a reference to the fact that he and Dave are voiced by Danny Cooksey.
    • Jack invokes this again in episode 9 & 10

Raimundo: That settles it: Kimiko's only here because she smells nice.

Clay: I sure hope nobody notices the enormous flying dragon.

    • Later in the same episode....

Wuya: What are the odds of both of you grabbing the Bolt Beam Starmie at precisely the same second?!

    • Episode 11:
  • Lawyer-Friendly Cameo: Somewhat subverted in the fact that abridgers hold no copyright. A version of "Hair Guy" Kemo appears as the guard in episode 3 and (Not) Yami shows up during the comment special
  • Leitmotif: The Enemy Mime is always accompanied by Panic at the Disco songs.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Averted by Kimiko, Playedstraight by everyone else. Was once lampshaded:

Dojo: Ain't you kids cold? It be snowcapped up in here.
Raimundo: Ehhhhhh, we'll get some snow clothes next season.

Raimundo: Hey, there's a gay person right now.
Omi: Really? How can you tell?
Raimundo: Didn't you hear? He said his name was Spicer. Jack Spicer.
Clay: Yup, can't get much more flamboyant than that.

Omi: This book says that Kimiko's mind is clouded by PMS.

Raimundo: Since this is Dragon Ball Z land, I call Goku.

Omi: You can't be Goku and the white ranger!!

Dojo: It's all coming back to me now. We pushed that random brick and then Master Dashi said "ah"
Raimundo: Ah as in "Aaahh Real Monsters"??

      • "Do you know what this reminds me of?" *cue Rocket Power Homage*
      • And the winner of that battle:

Omi: (After being hugged) Did I just get laid?
Kimiko: Was it like on camera?
Raimundo: Do you two realize JUST HOW LITTLE SENSE THAT MADE?? What is this, a Naruto Filler??

Dojo: Ever try doing acid and coke at the same time? Yeah, it's kinda like that.
