"Royal Rumble" is the eleventh episode of Xiaolin Showdown. It was directed by Tim Eldred and written by Eddie Guzelian. It originally aired in the United States on Kids WB on May 1, 2004.


The Xiaolin Warriors are having trouble working as a team when four Shen Gong Wu activating at the same time; the Lotus Twister,the Longi Kite, the Tongue of Saiping, and the Sun Chi Lantern. Wuya sends Jack Spicer, Tubbimura, Katnappe, and the Chameleon-Bot to find the same Shen Gong Wu. When the Xiaolin split up, they are nearly all captured. It is up to Omi to save his friends, even if he may be trapped by the Heylin forces in the process.


Omi, Raimundo, Kimiko and Clay find themselves into boredom due to no recent Shen Gong Wu activated for them to collect. Two weeks, four days and six hours as calculated by Clay give them the opportunity to pull a giant rock out of the water and onto a cliff. As usual, the team are compromising and about half-way of it is completed. However it soon goes awry once Raimundo and Clay tease Kimiko for her valley girl lifestyle and constant cell phone usage. When Omi tries to get them to focus they ignore it and are left falling off the climb, using Omi as their scapegoat.

The Xiaolin Dragons soon sit down in the Xiaolin Temple as Dojo is suddenly beginning to sense new Shen Gong Wu. A short bickering between Kimiko and Clay over Clay's shadow arose while giving Raimundo a horrible headache. Soon though, Dojo sense not one Shen Gong Wu, but to a maximum of four. Surprising everyone and especially Dojo, they leave to search out the enchanted artifacts.

Meanwhile, Jack Spicer attempts to construct plans for more Jack-Bots, yet is unable due to Wuya's nagging. All is said and done when Wuya also senses the Shen Gong Wu, changing the boy's mind. She then enlists the help of Katnappe, Chameleon-Bot and Tubbimura to aid them in obtaining Wu.

Riding over Dojo, he tells the four young monks of what Wu they have to find and where to scour them. First, he drops Kimiko near a jungle to collect the Lotus Twister. Next he brings Raimundo near a beach to get his hands on the Longi Kite. Clay is sent near an icy plane to find the Tongue of Saiping and Omi in a desert for the hidden Sun Chi Lantern.

Kimiko's quest follows her riding a motor-boat where after unexpectedly finds the Lotus Twister, gets an little visit from Katnappe. Both grab their hands on the Shen Gong Wu, just to find a stand-off and request a Xiaolin Showdown. The challenge consists of "gator-hopping" over giant alligators in the sea to Shen Gong Wu. Tricky and difficult, Kimiko fails to obtain the Shen Gong Wu when Katnappe bested her.

Walking along the beach water, Raimundo finds the Wu and falls head-over-heels for a woman in beach clothing. When she politely asks for the Wu to be given to her, Raimundo looks at "her" legs and declines because he knows Chameleon-Bot is in another-one of his disguises. They call the name for a Xiaolin Showdown compromised as a game of hide-and-seek where the two must find the Shen Gong Wu before the other does. Raimundo wields the Falcon's Eye yet the robot uses his disguises to his advantage. Ultimately, Raimundo loses the showdown and the Wu.

Clay is challenged by Tubbimura to a Xiaolin Showdown, where they race across the ice for the Tongue of Saiping. Clay uses Serpent's Tail to ride through a long place of ice with Tubbimura using his "tummy" to ride the ice. Clay stops a few steps away from the Tongue, with him and Tubbimura the same places away from it. Yet as they step towards it, the ice begins to requiring them to think it through. While Clay can do nothing, Tubbimura activates his Changing Chopsticks to shrink to a tiny size and successfully win the Wu. He later traps Clay in a bag for unknown intentions.

Omi finds Jack Spicer when they grab the Sun Chi Lantern, declaring a Xiaolin Showdown where it is a race with a "twist". They must race across the desert to capture the Wu but, all while holding a glass of water and must not spill anything at all as they will drink it once said Wu is collected. Jack gets the upper-hand in this showdown when he uses his Monkey Staff to change form into said primate and using his tail to hold the water. Omi however conjures up a plan where he holds the water in his mouth (no swallowing), uses Jack as a platform and jumps to reach the Wu, gaining the win.

Omi later returns to the Xiaolin Temple, very eager to share his won artifact with his friends. His thoughts are otherwise when Master Fung informs him of the remaining monks sudden disappearance. Omi is confused by this until Fung tell them that the Heylin are using them as a ransom of some sorts, leaving Omi to ride on Dojo and save them. They infiltrate a Dojo base and find Raimundo, Kimiko and Clay held by chains, Omi subsequently saves them. But they tell him it was a trap when the four members of Heylin prepare to fight him. Omi uses his newly collected Sun Chi Lantern to gather the chi energy his teammates hold and mixes it with his own, to use their own Elemental prowess. Omi uses Wind, Fire, Earth and lastly Water to defeat all Heylin and causing Jack to run away in fear; Wuya chasing him.

After reconciling and apologizing with Omi for their early attitude towards him, they finally work together to pull the giant rock by rope with their hands and then leave into the Temple for more fun to have.
