Clay Bailey is the Xiaolin Dragon of the Earth. He fights evil to collect the magical Shen Gong Wu with the other Xiaolin warriors. His Wudai Weapon is the Big Bang Meteorang and his Wudai power is Wudai Crater. He can use his elemental powers with the Fist of Tebigong and the Third-Arm Sash.



Clay is originally from Texas, as a cowboy and farm hand, being raised by his father along side his sister, Jesse. He later visits back for the Orb of Tornami, and not knowing at first, the Star Hanabi, being his father's lone star.[1]

His younger sister is Jesse Bailey, who is the leader of the Black Vipers, an all-girl biker gang, and considers Clay to be the favorite of the family.[2]


Clay is very mellow and patient, and does not get ruffled easily. There are a few things that will make Clay angry, such as taking or messing with his hat.[3][1] Clay is very honorable, trustworthy and chivalrous, and is somewhat old-fashioned in this way. Clay uses what Raimundo considers "Old Man Kung Fu,"[4] because Clay is slow in his martial arts and takes his time. However, Clay is the strongest of the Dragons in Training. Although he might not seem like it, Clay can often think of creative solutions to problems, and his patience is valuable to the other monks.He takes on the ¨Big brother¨ role of the team, always protecting and caring for all 3 other monks.[5]

Physical appearance

Clay is the tallest and the biggest of the monks. He has a stocky build, blonde hair, blue eyes, a round nose, a few light freckles under his eyes, big hands and huge arms. He is almost never seen without his cowboy hat, even when wearing his Xiaolin robes.[6]

Dragon Powers and Abilities


Earth Manipulation: As the Dragon of the Earth, Clay has the power to control, and shape earth, including stone, rock.

In addition to his elemental abilities and martial arts skills, he had other superhuman attributes such as:

Superhuman Strength: He was also superhumanly strong, capable of breaking through stones and steel with one single kick or his bare hands. Since he was the biggest one of the monks he was also the strongest one.

Enhanced Reflexes: His reflexes were enhanced to nearly superhuman levels.

Enhanced Agility: He possess agility beyond that of a normal human being. He could dodge attacks, swing from things easily, do back-flips and numerous other gymnastic, athletic and martial movements with little effort.

Enhanced Durability: He has proven to have a nearly superhuman durability.


Clay's attacks are:

Clay's Xiaolin Apprentice move

  • Seismic Kick Earth: He kicks the ground and create a huge earthquake or simply kick the enemy with extreme force.[7]

Clay's Wudai Warrior move

  • Wudai Crater Earth: This takes on several forms but is usually Clay slams the ground creating an earthquake or throwing rocks at the enemy.[8]. He can also create several spikes out of earth capable of reaching and destroying Jack's Jack-Bots as well as creating shoes, gauntlets or even a full body armor out of earth. With this attack his ability to manipulate earth is even greater than before.


Master Martial Artist: Like all the monks, he has incredible fighting skills and is a Wudai Warrior. He uses what Raimundo refers to as "old man" kung fu, as Clay prefers to take things slowly and accomplish tasks simply.[4]

Clay is very skilled with a lasso which he consistently uses for snagging items, saving allies as well as capturing opponents.[9]


Shen Gong Wu: His signature Shen Gong Wu are the Fist of Tebigong, the Lasso Boa Boa and the Third Arm Sash[10] which he usually combines with his element.

Wudai Weapon: His Wudai Weapon the Big Bang Meteorang which is a metal boomerang that when thrown can multiply into about eight powerful, rock shattering boomerangs[11].

Elemental Shen Gong Wu: His Elemental Shen Gong Wu is the Longhorn Taurus.[12]

Lasso: As a cowboy, Clay always carries a lasso that he uses in every mission.


Clay is considered to be the slowest of the Dragons, but does things he considers quick and simple. Because of his chivalrous ways, Clay would never fight or hit a girl and therefore would not battle any female even if they are evil.[13]



Main article: Bailey Family
Clay is known to have a younger sister[2] and a father[1] (and his mother was shown in a flashback when the other monks first met Jesse). He also has various relatives:

  • Buford, who is apparently bigger in size compared to Clay
  • Lily, his grandmother, who he used to be scared of (or more specifically, her pinching his cheek and kissing him, mostly the latter).[14]
  • Otis, his uncle.


Omi - Clay looks after Omi, and is very nice to him. The two have saved each others lives on several occasions. However, Omi does not have the same level of respect towards Clay, often whining towards or about him. Because of this, Clay sees Omi as a little brother-type figure.

Kimiko - Clay seem to take on the ¨Big brother¨ role towards Kimiko. He never fights with her and is always polite. He is sometimes seen protecting her or trying to comfort her. Some examples are when her father gets zombified by Panda Bubba, he puts his arm around her shoulder and leads her out into the hallway, or when Omi stays in ¨Omitown¨ and she falls on her head he helps her up. He´s mainly just a really good friend to her, protecting her when Raimundo can´t.

Raimundo - Raimundo and Clay are good friends. However, the two often taunt each other or makes jokes about the situation the other is in (Raimundo doing the former while Clay does the latter).

Major Battles

In the episode "Like a Rock!", Clay won his first Xiaolin Showdown against Jack Spicer, and ultimately won the Fist of Tebigong. However, the others did not think Clay would win, since he was so slow and steady, while Jack Spicer was fast and rushed to get the Shen Gong Wu from the bird. However, Clay outwitted him by harvesting flower seeds to attract the bird, ultimately winning him the showdown.[4]
