Shen's Conquest (or The Rise of Shen) was a conflict that arose when Lord Shen wanted to destroy Kung Fu and conquer China. All events from this conflict took place in Kung Fu Panda 2.


Lord Shen had first conceived his ambitious goals as a youth living with his noble parents, the Peacocks. He was born into the royal family and would one day inherit the throne from his father and rule over Gongmen City. He later became obsessed with using the gunpowder from fireworks (which his parents had invented) for destructive purposes. He also had a following of wolves who were, presumably, the royal guards of Gongmen City's palace. Shen formulated his plans for the creation of flammable weaponry, envisioning himself as not only one day ruling over Gongmen City, but all of China.

Massacre of the Pandas

When Shen's parents consulted a soothsayer on their concerns for his dark obsession over the firework powder, Shen himself overheard the Soothsayer speak of his prophesied defeat by "a warrior of black and white". Shen immediately called upon his wolf followers to annihilate all pandas, which he presumed was what the prophecy meant. He returned victorious and confident that any threat to his future rule was eliminated, but Shen's parents were shocked and horrified by his actions, and they banished him from the city. Shen's wolf followers went with him to aid his ambitions, and Shen swore revenge, saying he would one day 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 utilized 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.

Open War

Battle of Artisan Village

When Shen had run out of metal, he ordered his Wolf Warriors to steal metal from furthest villages. When the Wolf Army was approaching the Artisan Village, Tigress informed Po. He and the Furious Five went to the Artisan Village to fight off the wolves.

When the Wolves arrived, they began to steal all the metal they could find. As they were about to leave, Po and the Five arrived. The Wolf Boss didn't believe a panda had survived the massacre and then he ordered his pack to attack. The Kung Fu Masters won a victory, bringing back some of the villagers' metal, until the Wolf Boss ran to attack Po, as Po prepared to fight, the fire-eye symbol on the Wolf Boss's shoulder plate triggered a memory of Po's mother from when he was a baby. This caused Po to become distracted, allowing the Wolf Boss to strike him with his hammer and escape with some of the village's metal..

Invasion of Gongmen City

After completing the first cannon, Shen and his army (dragging his cannon) went to his former home. As he approached the gates, some Antelope Guards charged at him. However, Shen made short work of the guards, incapacitating them in mere seconds. When Shen confronted the Council of Gongmen City, he asked them to leave, but the councillors said that they would protect Gongmen City. Shen, seemed quite pleased with their dispostion, bringing forth his weapon in a box saying it was a "parting gift" to them. When Master Storming Ox and Croc attacked, Shen easily defeated them with his weapons. When he could not best Master Thundering Rhino, he opened the crate to reveal a massive cannon in the shape of a dragon. With this weapon, he murdered Thundering Rhino. He forced Storming Ox and Croc to surrender, if they didn't, Shen threatened to turn the cannon on the citizens of Gongmen City. Shen left his wolves to operate in the city as they pleased.

Infiltration of Gongmen City

When Po and the Five arrived at Gongmen City to fight Shen and his army, they had to infiltrate Gongmen City undetected and make it to to the palace. Po chose to use a large dragon parade costume as a means of disguise. He and the Five, while still in the costume, rescued a sheep who was about to be roughed up by a wolf thug. The sheep informed Po that Masters Ox and Croc were still alive in Gongmen Jail. Unfortunately, knocking out the wolf thug attracted unwanted attention from the Wolf Boss himself. He and nearby members of his pack gave chase. The wolves pursued Po and the Five through the streets of Gongmen City, until they surrounded them. However, when they opened the dragon costume, they found nobody inside. While the wolves spread out to find them, Po and the Five entered to Gongmen Jail, defeated some wolf guards, and found Storming Ox and Croc. When Tigress freed them, Storming Ox and Croc stayed in their cell, saying that Shen would turn his cannon on the citizens if they resisted his rule. Po tried to convince them to help him and the Five, but to no avail. After that, the Wolf Boss and two wolves appeared. When his two lackies were quickly dealt with by the Five, the Wolf Boss lost his nerve. He fled the prison and boarded a cart pulled by an antelope. Po (on a cart) and the Five chased him through the streets and markets of the city, avoiding citizens and other obstacles which the Wolf Boss threw into their path. After saving some infant rabbits, Po realized the Wolf Boss was getting away. Tigress chose to improvise, prompting Mantis to throw her towards Po. She used her momentum to shove Po, allowing him to catch the Wolf Boss in seconds flat. The two fought on the Wolf Boss's cart until a ramp sent them flying into the air. Po used the Wolf Boss to break his own fall. it seemed that they had won the day, but they were soon surrounded by a massive group of armed wolves. Po chose to surrender. He and the five were restrained and led into the palace grounds.

Shen's conquest for total control of China ended when Po defeated Shen's fleet in the city harbor and eventually Shen himself in the aftermath.

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, also possibly growing a much bigger army of wolves and gorillas and possibly other armies of different species. According to the Soothsayer, Shen would try to conquer the world.


After the conquest, the remnants of Lord Shen's army lurked around Gongmen City, but they were stopped by Master Po and the Furious Five.
