|**SPOILER ALERT!** Plot and/or ending details follow below.|
Shen had first conceived his ambitious goals as a young youth living with his noble parents, the Peacocks. He was born into the royal family and was told he would one day inherit the throne from his father and rule over Gongmen City. He later became obsessed with using the powder from fireworks (which his parents had invented) for destructive purposes. He had also befriended a pack of wolves who were, at the time, the royal guards at Gongmen City's palace. Grateful for Shen's friendship with them, the wolves eventually swore their allegiance to the young prince. It was presumably around this time that Shen formulated his plans, envisioning himself of not only one day ruling over Gongmen City, but all of China by use of the flammable firework powder and his new wolf followers.
But when Shen's parents had consulted a soothsayer on their concerns for his dark obsession over the firework powder, he overheard the Soothsayer tell his parents of his prophesied defeat by "a warrior of black and white". Shen secretly overheard this and immediately called upon his wolf followers to annihilate all giant pandas (which he presumed was what the prophecy meant by "black and white"). He returned victorious and confident that any threat to his future rule was eliminated. But Shen's parents were so shocked and horrified by his actions that they banished him from the city and the throne. Shen swore revenge, saying he would return and have all of China bow to his feet.
Shen left the city with his wolf followers and proceeded to continue in his dark endeavors to dominate China. He spent the next thirty years plotting his revenge and ambitions, having grown his army and built an entire arsenal of his new weapon that utilizes firework powder to destroy and kill. Once he thought he was ready to move forward, he returned to the city and allowed his plans to finally unfold.

If Shen had turned out as the victor over the Kung Fu Masters trying to stop him, he would have succeeded in his power-hungry endeavors and proceeded to take over China in a similar manner to a spreading fire (just as Shen had shown the Soothsayer when he burned a map of China). Shen's power and rule would grow strong enough at that point that any rebellion would be sufficient enough to stop him and there will be no Kung Fu. Shen would most likely have continued to rule as a cruel and ruthless ruler. According to the Soothsayer, Shen would try to conquer the world.
- The entirety of Shen's conquest lasted around thirty years — from when Shen first conceived his ambitious goal as a young peacock, to his defeat at the paws of a giant panda.
