Shengqi (pronounced "shang-CHEE") is a character from the Nickelodeon television series Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness. He is a kung fu master from the Muchang Township who was convicted and placed in Chorh-Gom Prison for his "crimes" against Duke Pingjun. He made his first and so far only appearance in the episode "Present Tense" where he was a fugitive in hiding while being sought by Po.
Earlier yearsA year prior to the Legends of Awesomeness episode "Present Tense", Shengqi was the bodyguard of Duke Pingjun. When the duke had his grand moon cake presented to him and his wealthy friends for the Winter Festival, it was soon ruined by a servant girl who had misstepped. This angered the duke, who attempted to strike her as punishment, but was stopped by Shengqi, who was the girl's father. This also caused the duke to slip into his ruined moon cake, humiliating him in front of all his friends. Turning his wrath against Shengqi, the duke charged him with assault, and as a result he was sentenced to life in Chorh-Gom Prison.
As a prison escapee, a bounty was put out for the capture of Shengqi, which caught the attention of Po when Constable Hu was handing out the wanted posters of him. The panda came looking for Shengqi, but when he arrived at the village he was hiding out in, he was met with many of its citizens, who were willing to protect and defend Shengqi.
Eventually, during the fight, Po learned the truth about Shengqi upon recognizing the necklace around his neck being the same as Xiao Niao's. Po got Shengqi to the Valley of Peace's Winter Feast as Constable Hu tried to stop him. After Po explained the truth about what happened the day when Shengqi was sent to Chorh-Gom Prison, Shengqi was reunited with his daughter as Constable Hu told Po that he would see to it that Shengqi's sentence was overturned.
Shengqi is known to be one of the strongest masters in kung fu. He is a very skilled fighter and often uses his sword in battle.
- Shengqi's name translates into English as "angry", "offended" or "animated" (traditional Chinese: 生氣?; simplified Chinese: 生气; pinyin: shēngqì).
