She is kind and sweet not to mention very affectionate, often pulling Po's cheeks and complimenting him on how handsome he is. Because of her old age, she can be a bit slow but has proven to be a competent fighter. She can actually be very spunky, as shown when she fights the jombies and refers to herself near the end as a lethal fighting machine.


Nu Hai and Bao

Nu Hai and Bao are Grandma Panda's grandchildren. In the Paws of Destiny pilot episode, it is revealed that she became their guardian after their parents passed away, though no details were given as to how. Grandma Panda shows to love her grandchildren and will do anything to keep them safe.
