I honestly expected Shifu to die in KFP3, However I thought it would happen since Po was becoming the teacher and since Stoick died in How To Train Your Dragon 2. I also think it would've gave Po mature character development and a decent set up for what we could see of Po in the 4th and final film. I honestly hope they do kill him off in the next movie, now look I love Shifu, he's my 3rd favourite character in the franchise but he's getting old and his time has come. I also think it'd give Po good character independence if they kill him off in the 1st act of the movie to give Kung Fu Panda 4 the feeling of HTTYD 3: The Hidden World the way Hiccup was independent. I also think we should see Po become independent.
I think it would give the 4th and final movie a darker tone like the 2nd film. A mixture of light and dark. Same tone as HTTYD 3 but a little darker.
I was reading the Dragon Ball manga and when I got to chapter 85 there was this one guy who acted almost exactly how Master Shifu acted towards Po when Po wanted the noodles, but this time it was over some holy water and towards Gokuu. This brought up the question: Is Shifu based off Sennin-Sama? (Read from right to left)

Continuing with our heroes and villains theme, our next character spotlight is the "small-but-mighty" kung fu master, Shifu!
Like yesterday, this will be another open discussion activity on Shifu, but also (again) another focus on his qualities that form his hero/villain status. So talk about anything you want about him, but more specifically discuss why he's another key hero figure to the franchise's story arc. Here are the questions introduced yesterday to help you in your answer:
- Is this character primarily a hero or a villain?
- What qualities make them this way?
- Are they maybe (villainous/heroic) in some ways? Why or why not?
