Po: My fist hungers for justice! (stomach belches) That was my... fist.
Boss Wolf: (to pack) Get 'em!
  —The beginning of the battle, Kung Fu Panda 2  

The Battle of Artisan Village was the struggle between Po and the Furious Five and the invading pack of wolves, who were being led by Boss Wolf in stealing all of the Artisan Village's metal.

Summary

Boss Wolf and his pack were robbing the metal of Musicians' Village to use for Lord Shen's cannons (including a large bell with a terrified pig trapped inside it) when Po and the Furious Five leapt on the scene. When he learned from the ecstatic villagers that Po was the Dragon Warrior, Boss Wolf said, "The panda? That's impossible!" Unknown to Po at the time, he said this because he and his wolves had supposedly neutralized the threat of the pandas.

After a moment of embarrassment when Po's stomach rumbled loud enough for all to hear, Po and the Five leapt into battle the wolf pack, while a blind bunny played part of the action music on a liuqin as the warriors defended him from the wolves. Several short scenes during the battle showed Viper tail-lashing a wolf into a large gong, Mantis smashing a wolf's dual swords into pieces, Monkey smashing a wolf's head between two cymbals and Tigress sending a wolf crashing into a pile of instruments- she visibly winced at the impact. At one point, several wolf archers fired a multitude of arrows at Po's back, but Mantis managed to fling several metal gongs in the panda's direction, which easilly deflected the arrows.

Po soon had to protect the blind bunny from a group of wolves by fighting with a pair of liuqins. Right after defeating the wolves however, Po was soon attacked by an onslaught of wolves tossing axes, some of which embedded themselves in the wall of a building. Po used this as a set of stairs and quickly climbed up to the roof, pursued by a dozen wolves, where he called out "Tigress, Double Death Strike!" Tigress immediatedly responded by leaping up and fighting alongside Po in tandem before flinging him into the air to face an incoming group of enemies. With his 'Feet of Fury', Po kicked the wolves out of the air and landed safely on the ground with the help of Crane. Po proceeded to fight more wolves with the help of his comrades, calling out each of their species's names as they appeared- he suddenly and unexpectedly came up with "Bunny!", holding out the blind bunny in front of the remaining soldier. He apologised before punching the wolf in the face.

Seeing that Po and the Five were winning the fight, Boss Wolf let out a howl, signalling for the wolves to retreat and for the gorilla soldiers up above to haul up the stashes of metal roped up in bundles, one of which held the bell in which the entrapped pig cried out for help. Alerted to the pig's plight, Po called for Crane to cut the ropes holding the bundles of metal. While this freed the bundles, the bundle holding the pig was soon tumbling into the misty abyss next to the village. Po leapt off the edge and grabbed the bundle, followed closely by Viper who grabbed his legs. She was followed in turn by Monkey who grabbed her tail, and in turn was caught by Tigress who quickly pulled them back up on land, successfully completing the rescue.

By this time, all the wolves were gone and Po and the Five walked up to the cheering villagers, just as Boss Wolf climbed over the cliff edge, wielding a heavy hammer. Po moved to intercept the furious wolf... when he noticed the red eye emblem on Boss Wolf's shoulder. This unexpectedly triggered a mysterious vision in Po, and he briefly saw what appeared to be his biological mother abandoning him as an infant. Meanwhile, Tigress noticed that Po had somehow become paralysed and moved to intercept, but was too late as Boss Wolf whacked Po across the face with the hammer, sending him and Tigress flying into a group of villagers. Boss Wolf gleefully taunted the panda before escaping with the bundles of metal.
