They first appeared in the Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness episode "The Secret Museum of Kung Fu", where they fought against Po, Shifu, and the Furious Five for possession of the map and key to the Secret Museum of Kung Fu. They are led by Heilang.

Although it is unknown when or how exactly the Lin Kuei were first formed, it is known that they've been around for centuries. According to the gang's current leader, Heilang, the Lin Kuei's source of power was the Shadow Crowns before they were stolen from the Lin Kuei centuries ago.
As described by Shifu in Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, the Lin Kuei are trained from birth in the art of stealth and combat to grow into master assassins and thieves. They are distinctive for their use of the chain hammer.
