"The Last Temptation of Raimundo" is the thirty-first episode of Xiaolin Showdown. It was directed by Mike Milo and written by Art Everett. It originally aired in the United States on Kids WB on April 23, 2005.

Overview

When the Heylin Comet passes by the Earth, the Shen Gong Wu come to life and fuse with Raimundo after he uses some of them to save his town from a volcanic eruption (caused by Jack and Wuya.) As more Shen Gong Wu fuse with him, Raimundo grows bigger and more muscular and gradually begins to be controlled by the Wus until they completely take over his mind. After that, Wuya possesses his body and now the other Xiaolin must save Raimundo from the evil magic of her and the Heylin Comet.

Synopsis

Upon seeing the rare Heylin Comet passing by the Earth, Master Fung orders the Warriors not to use any Shen Gong Wu for the next three days. The comet makes the Shen Gong Wu have a mind of their own if used by anyone. Wuya sees this as an opportunity to tempt the Warriors to use the Shen Gong Wu. Omi gives his word that no one will use Wu, to which he and the other monks are given a challenging task that tires them out. Meanwhile, at night, Wuya has Jack zap the comet, which leads to it crashing and causing a volcano eruption, in what appears to be Raimundo's home town. Seeing what was happing in his hometown, Raimundo decided to do something about it then tried to get his friends up to help him but they were all asleep. Left with no other option or choice, Raimundo disobey orders in using Shen Gong Wu as he grabs the Golden Tiger Claws and Sword of the Storm. With the Golden Tiger Claws, Raimundo arrived in his hometown just in time as he uses the Sword of the Storm to prevent the destruction of his town. For being a hero, his hometown throws him a parade. Later, He returns to the temple as he tries to restore the Wu to the vault, but they grip on him. He is able to put the Sword of the Storm back in the vault but not the Golden Tiger Claws. Realizing this, Raimundo tries to hide the Golden Tiger Claws from everyone but gets discovered. With everyone believing he was using the Golden Claws for his own amusement, Raimundo was said some harsh things from his friends. Despite this, Raimundo explains what happen in his hometown to everyone as he was using Shen Gong Wu for a good reason but he can't control the Golden Tiger Claws now. However, everyone doesn't believe his explanation, except for the last part. Master Fung warns the monks to keep a close eye on Raimundo, as the Wu have a mind of their own, and Raimundo will have little control over his body. Omi decides to watch him at night but eventually falls asleep. This allows the Wu to travel to the vault to gather more Wu during which is when Raimundo becomes attached to the Third-Arm Sash, Orb of Tornami and Helmet of Jong. With each Shen Gong Wu he wears, he grows bigger and more muscular. He is sent away before he can do more damage.

The next day, the monks are complaining about Raimundo's actions before Dojo arrives and revealed that there was a lava flow in Brazil and their friend prevented it. Hearing this, the other monks realize that Raimundo was telling the truth and makes them feel terrible for not believing his noble intentions.

Jack and Wuya find him, and they presents Raimundo with the Glove of Jisaku. Raimundo reluctantly disagrees with the Wu, however the Golden Tiger Claws forced him towards the Glove of Jisaku anyways. The Third Arm Sash trips Raimundo into the Glove of Jisaku, forcing him to grow hulkingly, massively muscular. Before deciding to go with Jack and Wuya, the other monks arrived as they apologized for the things they said and for not believing that his intention for using the Golden Tiger Claws were good as they were able to convince him to come back with them. However, little did they know, Wuya knew they would get Raimundo to come back with him because they have more Wu there.

Back at the Xiaolin Temple, the monks have hidden all the Shen Gong Wu but Raimundo finds them when the Glove of Jisaku activates itself. Raimundo is monstrously muscular and attached with many Shen Gong Wu. Because of this, Raimundo has lost all self-control and flies from the temple to Jack's lair. Wuya takes over Raimundo's body as the warriors appear and challenge her to a 4-way, all or nothing, cosmic clash Xiaolin Showdown for their friend. Wagering the Lotus Twister, Fist of Tebigong, and Tangle Web Comb against Wuya's Helmet of Jong, Mantis Flip Coin, and Third-Arm Sash, the monks quickly become disadvantaged and only Omi and the Lotus Twister are left in the showdown. The other monks confuse Wuya and knock most of the Shen Gong Wu off her body, including the Helmet of Jong. And when the three monks use the Dragon X-Kumei Formation, Raimundo remembers who he is and rips the Shen Gong Wu from his body, returning to his normal form and Wuya is once again a ghost. In the end, they all apologize to Raimundo, and he forgives them, until Omi claims, "We will always listen to you…no matter how stupid your excuse may be." Raimundo then spits his tea and looks sick of Omi.

Steal the Wu

Omi, Kimiko, and Clay challenge Wuya (as Raimundo) to a Cosmic Clash Xiaolin Showdown for Raimundo's freedom. The monks wager the Tangle Web Comb, Lotus Twister, and Fist of Tebigong against Wuya's Helmet of Jong, Third Arm Sash, and Mantis Flip Coin. The game is decided on Steal the Wu.

When the showdown starts, Jack's house gets destroyed into tiny pieces and reformed as a globe representing Earth. Dojo is declared the keeper of the Shen Gong Wu and travels to Hawaii on the globe to stay out of the way. Clay tries to hit Wuya with the Fist of Tebigong, but she knocks him back with the Third Arm Sash and takes the Wu. Kimiko uses the Tangle Web Comb, but Wuya jumps over her with the Mantis Flip Coin and grabs the Tangle Web Comb from her. Omi uses the Lotus Twister and Wuya uses the Third Arm Sash and Mantis Flip Coin, both arriving at a stalemate. The monks take off other Shen Gong Wu that wasn't wagered to confuse Wuya, and Omi uses the Lotus Twister to take off the Helmet of Jong. Wuya cheats and used the Shroud of Shadows to hide and easily fight the monks. Omi decides to call on Raimundo who he believes is still there by using Dragon X Kumei Formation. Raimundo hears this and starts fighting Wuya, ripping off Shen Gong Wu on his own. He takes off the Mantis Flip Coin and Third Arm Sash, winning the showdown for the monks.
