Human Wuya

Wuya was an evil Heylin witch. She was defeated in the first Xiaolin Showdown by the legendary Grand Master Dashi and trapped in a wooden Puzzle Box.[1] However, many years later she was released by Jack Spicer.[1]

She was usually seen working with a partner (often Jack Spicer) to collect Shen Gong Wu and take over the world once again. She had the power to sense Shen Gong Wu. However, she was a ghost during most of her life, needing a living person to collect them for her.


Wuya was a very ruthless, cruel, and cunning person who would stop at nothing to achieve her goals of world domination and would ally herself with anyone to do so.

In her ghost form, Wuya was often cranky, though the extent of this was different from season to season; in season one she was generally very calm, convincing and patient, except when Jack was doing something really stupid, while in season two she often just yelled at Jack and complained about things.[1][2] Also, in season two, it was implied that Wuya feared the coming of the end of the world, caused by anything that's out of her own control.[3]

However, while working with Chase she showed a different behavior, very similar to the one she had during the first season. That was mainly because Chase was not as incompetent as Jack. Moreover, she seemed to be somewhat impatient of turning Omi to the dark side.

In her human form, Wuya was much more calm, persuasive, decisive and manipulative. Despite her evil and malevolent ways, Wuya always kept her word. An example of this was giving Raimundo everything he asked for after he helped her take over the world, even though she could have easily betrayed him. She even let him rule by her side.[4][5] She was also very calm, as when Chase blocked her god-like powers she responded to that coolly, saying that she would have done the same thing. In season 3, she wanted to gain again Shen Gong Wu and displayed many times a traitorous behavior over Chase. However, she was loyal and patient to everyone who was able to fulfill her desires and treated her nicely (like Hannibal Roy Bean).

Powers and Abilities


Wuya has two main forms; her Ghost form and her human form. Each one of them has different powers.

Ghost Form

  • Intangibility: In her original ghost form, she was able to pass through anything, and while intangible, be blown away, and be splashed by water.
  • Levitation: As she was a ghost, she could move around only through levitation.
  • Shen Gong Wu Detection: Her ghost form was able to detect when Shen Gong Wu had been activated and their exact location.[6]
  • Illusions: She could create extremely realistic illusions.[7]
  • Clairsentience: Wuya had a form of extrasensory perception, able to perceive the condition of subjects from the past, present or, future, by entering in their heads.[8]
  • Size Alteration: She could change her size, as shown in many occasions during the series when she is either bigger or smaller. When she becomes really small, she can enter inside people's head and read their minds.[8]
  • Possession: She was able to enter inside the bodies of alive people, to control them for a short time. She was able to possess a brainless Raimundo after the Shen Gong Wu made him their puppet[9] and Jack when they were reunited. As seen, when she controlled Jack, she could change the face of the person she possesses to be similar to hers.
  • Limited Object Teleportation: She could make the Monkey Spear and other Shen Gong Wu appear from nowhere.
  • Limited Telekinesis: She could use limited telekinesis to "lift" objects, such as magazines, in order to use them properly, as she was intangible and she could not touch them.

Human Form

Wuya havewaysofmakingyoutalk

"As they say, I have ways of making you talk."

  • Heylin Magic: In her human form, she had unparalleled mastery of the dark/Heylin arts, which she used to try to take over the world.[1][4] Her magical powers were superior to that of Chase Young and Hannibal Roy Bean combined. However, the full extent of Wuya's magical powers was not fully shown throughout the series. With her Heylin Magic, she can perform many magical and supernatural feats such as:
    • Physics Manipulation: Wuya was able to control the laws of physics, allowing her to control many different physical forces.
      • Reality Warping: She could create, change, destroy, or even alter reality just by thinking about it. She could change the physiology of Earth itself to suit her personal needs and even change the design of the sun and the moon. [7][4]
      • Object Materialization: She was able to create inanimate matter such as fancy cars, video games, and statues, from nothing.[4]
      • Space Manipulation: She could warp, bend, flip, crush, control and otherwise manipulate physical aspects of space within an area of her choosing, able to even make the moon hang right above her palace.[4]
        • Portal Creation: Wuya could create portals by opening a hole in the universe connecting two non-adjacent locations. The portals that she could create were able to suck only the individuals that Wuya wanted, without their own will.[5]
      • Time Stopping: Wuya was able to stop time around a specific area while being unaffected. [10]
      • Pressure Manipulation: She could increase the pressure of the environment around her to easily crush and/or deform objects simply by making physical contact with them.[4]
      • Energy Manipulation: She was able to create energy blasts of various colors, sizes, and shapes, that she could bend and spin in every way and direction she wanted or even fire multiple blasts at once. She could also create energy cages to trap people.[5][11] Her blasts were so powerful, that could send Dashi several miles away, through a whole forest.
        • Energy Kisses: She had the ability to transform her kisses into concussive energy blasts.
      • Light Generation: Whenever Wuya retained her human form, the power that she unleashed could create really powerful and intense lights of various colors (mainly white and green) that could almost blind the people who watched them.[7]
    • Elemental Manipulation: Wuya could create, shape and manipulate the elements of nature.
      • Air Manipulation: Wuya could create and manipulate air and wind, being able to create large clouds of dust, manipulate the clouds and create winds strong enough that could almost blow the Xiaolin Monks off a hill.[4]
      • Green Fire Manipulation: Wuya was able to create and manipulate green flames, more intense than normal fire. She was able to produce such fire from her whole body, even from her eyes, and maintain it for a great amount of time with ease. With such power, she could create green blazes that could cover a whole hill within seconds and create fire blasts that could break through solid stone. [7][4][5]
      • Earth Manipulation: She was able to create, shape and manipulate earth. Her geokinetic abilities were monumental. She was able to create mountains and large pillars of stone or even make a complete palace out of simple rocks, by only waving her hands.[4]

        Wuya and her golems

        • Rock Creatures Summoning: She could summon rock creatures of every shape and size called "Goons" by Raimundo. She could summon them by only clapping her hands. They had superhuman strength and durability and could also create rocks on fire, to attack their enemies.[4][5]
    • Telekinesis: She could move and manipulate people and objects by only using her mind, without having any kind of physical contact with them.[4]

      Wuya Flying and Creating Green Fire

      • Levitation: She could carelessly hover in the air and prevent her body from making contact with the ground below.[4]
    • Flight: Wuya was able to fly at incredible speeds and heights, probably by magical means or through telekinesis.[4][11]
    • Teleportation: She was able to transport from one point to another without traversing the physical space between them. She could achieve such feat with many different ways and even change her clothes and appearance while reappearing.[4][5]
    • Invulnerability: She could withstand the elemental attacks of all three monks (Omi, Kimiko, and Clay) without even a scratch.[4]
    • Power Bestowal: She could give a small number of her powers to someone else, as she did with Raimundo, making him able to summon Rock Creatures.[5]
    • Illusions: In her human form she could also create extensive illusions, able to even create a detailed illusion of the globe that she could spin around.[4]
    • Magical Sight: She could track and observe everybody, through magical means, for a considerable amount of time by creating a magical "window".
    • Lightning Generation: She was could shoot lightning from her hands, able to even overcome the Eye of Dashi, which had an unlimited amount of power. She could also summon lightning from the sky when she retained her human form.[1][7]
    • Shen Gong Wu Detection: Wuya's human form was still able to detect Shen Gong Wu, as she located the Rio Reverso. When she was detecting a Shen Gong Wu, her green eyes turned yellow and her hair could be seen floating like they were underwater.[12]
    • Shen Gong Wu Immunity: Wuya was immune to the effects of Shen Gong Wu and Xiaolin Magic, able to even withstand multiple Shen Gong Wu attacks with ease.. [10][4]
    • Animation: She could give life to inanimate objects and control them, able to bring multiple statues to life at the same time.[11]
    • Immortality: She had the ability to never age and stay young forever. As she did not physically age in the episode "Time After Time", which takes place 80 years into the future, it can be assumed that she is essentially immortal and has eternal youth.
  • Superhuman Strength: She has shown that she is incredibly strong, kicking and punching the monks several yards away, even through solid objects like stone with ease and breaking through metal.[10]
  • Superhuman Speed: She was capable of running and accelerating to high speeds which a human could never achieve, becoming a blur.
  • Superhuman Durability: The tissues of her body were considerably harder and more resistant to physical injury than those of an ordinary human. She is capable to withstand several punches from the monks and Shen Gong Wu like they're nothing. Apparently, she also possesses a vast threshold for pain.[4]
  • Superhuman Agility: Wuya's agility, balance, and bodily coordination were enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete.
  • Superhuman Reflexes: Her reflexes were enhanced in a similar manner and were superior to those of the finest human athlete and the monks. She has been able to react to a barrage of gunfire from multiple Jack-Bots at once, unharmed.


  • Master Martial Artist: Wuya has proven herself several times to be an excellent martial artist, capable of defeating the monks one by one or at the same time.
  • Manipulating Skills: Wuya is capable of manipulating people by using their fears, insecurities or desires against them, either to trick them or convince them to join her, as well lull enemies into a false sense of security.
  • Attractive Female: Wuya's greatest ability, however, was her "female willies", as Omi refers to them. It is through her own guile that she convinced many of her allies to join her (namely Chase Young and Raimundo). She also uses these 'abilities' to lull enemies into a false sense of security (Clay in "The Life and Times of Hannibal Roy Bean") or cause them to become enraged and careless. (Kimiko in the same episode).[10]
  • Expert Shen Gong Wu User: She was an exceptional user, of nearly every Shen Gong Wu, able to use their powers more effectively than usual. She could use the Ruby of Ramses to make Jack do some extreme martial arts, the Third-Arm Sash and the Mantis Flip Coin, to dodge Omi's attacks and simultaneously try to steal the Fist of Tebigong, the Rio Reverso to make a T-Rex come back to life and combine the Reversing Mirror with the Serpent's Tail to become human again.


Human form

In her human form, Wuya didn't have any inherent weaknesses, other than Dashi's Puzzle Box/Iron Spring, from which she can't escape from.[1][5][11] This also takes away her body as a result once released, leaving her without a physical form.

Ghost form

In her ghost form, she had many weaknesses, one of them was that she wasn't able to use any Shen Gong Wu or do anything by herself whatsoever. Another weakness was that she wasn't able to use her magic powers.



Journey of a Thousand Miles 2

Wuya Fighting with Dashi

Wuya's story began 1,500 years prior to the show's beginning, where she fought a great battle between herself and the great Xiaolin Master Dashi in the first Xiaolin Showdown. Wuya pitted her dark magic against Dashi's Shen Gong Wu, and in the end, Dashi was the victor and Wuya was imprisoned in a wooden Puzzle Box/Iron Spring. Then, Dashi spread his Shen Gong Wu around the Earth so no evil could ever lay the hands on them.[1]

Xiaolin Showdown

Season One

In the start of the show, Wuya was released from her prison by a boy named Jack Spicer, a self-proclaimed "evil boy genius," so she persuaded him to join the hunt for the Shen Gong Wu. She could not touch anything, because she was a spirit and needed Jack to collect the Shen Gong Wu for her, in hopes of taking over the world.[1]

As the series progressed, Wuya and Jack worked together to find the Shen Gong Wu. However, they often failed due to the Monks' skills and Jack Spicer's incompetence. Wuya reacted by beginning to show signs of leaving Spicer in search of a better option, such as Katnappé.[6]

Near the end of the first season, Wuya and Jack had the necessary amount of Shen Gong Wu needed to create Mala Mala Jong, the ancient demon warrior who was completely loyal to Wuya, and so Wuya decided she no longer needed Spicer and left with Mala Mala Jong to raid the Xiaolin Temple. Contrary to expectations and much to her anger, the Chosen Ones had left with the Shen Gong Wu. However, much to Wuya's good fortune, the Dragon of the Wind, Raimundo returned to save Master Fung, but the young monk was no match for Mala Mala Jong; Wuya went inside Raimundo's head and found out the location of the hidden Shen Gong Wu and set out to find them in the side of a mountain. However, without knowing it, Omi, the Dragon of the Water, gained the Golden Tiger Claws and took the Heart of Jong out of the monster. Therefore, Mala Mala Jong, no longer existed, and much to Wuya's disappointment, she seemingly had no choice but to go back to Jack.[8]

After these events, Wuya attempted to reform her partnership with Spicer. However, Jack had no need for her and left her without an ally. Despite this, Wuya had a back-up plan after the events of the previous day. The Dragon of the Wind, Raimundo had been angered by not being promoted to the rank of Xiaolin Apprentice along with the other monks and left to go to his hometown. There Wuya found him alone and offered him a "faster more effective way of achieving his greatness." However, the Reversing Mirror revealed itself before Raimundo had given her an answer, and he returned to the temple to start the search for it. After winning the Mirror in a Showdown against Jack, he accepted Wuya's offer, and joined her on the Heylin side, to plan their conquest of the world. Wuya sent Raimundo to get the Serpent's Tail so she could regain her powers and her body. He succeeded in retrieving it, and Wuya was once again the most powerful being in the universe![7]

Season Two

Xiaolin wuya palace 676x600

Wuya's Palace

Now that Wuya was all-powerful, the world changed its landscape as soon as she transformed and the Reversing Mirror shattered under her feet. The monks attempted to stop her, but they were powerless against the magic of the Heylin Witch, and so they retreated with Jack (who had saved them from Wuya's Rock Creatures). Then, Wuya raised her palace, where she began her conquest of the globe. Now the world was her's with Raimundo at her side, and the Xiaolin Temple was easily dealt with. The monks had nowhere to go for help, but Jack had an idea to send Omi back in time to get a new Puzzle Box from Dashi; after sending Omi to the past the monks and Jack were captured and imprisoned by Wuya. Suddenly, Omi returned successful and tried to open the box in the presence of Wuya; unfortunately, it did not open and victory was beyond doubt, for the Heylin Witch. Unforeseen by Wuya, Raimundo decided, after she triumphantly and arrogantly gave him the box, to help his friends, and he opened the box. The unexpecting villain was instantly incarcerated back in the Puzzle Box, and Wuya's reign of evil ended as the world returned to normal (the Reversing Mirror was also restored). [4][5]

Very shortly after her defeat, Katnappé released her from the Box; the two decided to join forces. However, their partnership didn't last long, due to Katnappé's lack of determination. Soon after, the ghost and Jack reforged their coalition, and the two started once again to collect the Shen Gong Wu. They continued to work together on many occasions, but tensions were strained most of the time, due to Jack's new obsession with his evil hero and Wuya's ex-Xiaolin enemy, Chase Young. Soon after, Chase and Wuya began to work together to turn Omi to the dark side.

After their plan succeeded and Chase Young ruled the earth, he used the Serpent's Tail and the Reversing Mirror to return her to her human form; however, he did this without giving Wuya her god-like powers, so she would never be more powerful than him. Wuya responded to this cool, stating that she would have done the same thing and stayed loyal by his side until Chase was defeated by the monks in a Xiaolin Showdown.

Season Three

Wuya, human again thanks to Chase

After Chase's defeat, Wuya and he lived together in his fortress, for the most of the season, and the two worked together many times. Despite this, there was no sense of trust between the two, and Chase secretly had her under constant watch.[12]

When Hannibal Roy Bean returned from the Ying-Yang World, she began to work with him in hopes of using him to gain Shen Gong Wu and regain her powers. The two made a private plan to destroy Chase Young. To their dismay, the plan failed, and the two parted ways. After this event, Chase and Wuya settled their differences and decided to stay together "for the sake of evil."

Wuya is seen along with the other Heylin villains at the end of the last episode.[11]

Xiaolin Chronicles

Season One

Jack Spicer and Wuya XC

Jack and Wuya, ready to take the Shroud of Monster Camo

Wuya's reappearance in the second series, was when Master Fung told the story of the battle between her and Dashi, to the apprentices, that the Shoku Warriors had to choose. The story was the same with the prequel: Wuya was an evil Heylin witch, and the most powerful being in the universe, who sought to conquer the world. However, she was defeated by Grand Master Dashi and imprisoned in an iron spring (thought to be a Puzzle Box).

Later, she was released back into the world as a ghost by Jack Spicer, when he got a "present" at the front door. It is unknown how Wuya got trapped into the iron spring as Jack released her in the prequel. It possible that she was imprisoned again by the Xiaolin Monks after the events of the final episode. Wuya recognizes Jack, from when they used to work together, and the two partnered up. Her first plan was to find the Bubble Brains Shen Gong Wu so that she could go back into her human form and become once again, the most powerful being in the universe. After Jack lost that Shen Gong Wu, she continued to work with him, in hopes of regaining her powers, however because of Jack's incompetence and lack of focus, she was almost always mad of him.

After Jack turned good, Wuya took a more active role to regain her body. She used Jack's desire to gain more followers and the fact that Dojo left the Xiaolin Monks to get first to the Shen Gong Wu she needed, and even forced Good Jack to fight for it in the Showdown. However, Jack's incompetence made her lose the Shen Gong Wu she needed to regain her mighty powers. Wuya continued to be mad at him, even after he became evil again. She later allied with Tiny Sim for a short period of time.



Jack Spicer

Treasure of the Blind Swordsman

Example of Wuya's relationship with Jack

Wuya and Jack shared a very strained relationship, mostly because of Jack's incompetence; he often failed, which angered her to a great extent. Wuya seemed to have no problem leaving Jack for a better option like Katnappé[6] or Chase Young; however, when Wuya needed help from Jack he always complied, mostly because if he didn't she would probably use someone else to continue to foil his plans until he did. Wuya also acted as a kind of mentor or motherly figure for Jack in the early days of their partnership. During the third season, she cooperated with him many times, but she was almost always angry or even bored with him because he was still incompetent. However, in "Hannibal's Revenge", when Kimiko (having transformed into Jack) talked to her very rudely, she said that she liked that side of him.

After she was freed for the second time, from the puzzle box by Jack, she was very willing to reunite with him, as she believed that he was better than before. However, after realizing that he was as incompetent as before, they continued to share the same strained relationship they had.

Chase Young

One of Wuya's most notable relationships was with the Heylin Warrior, Chase Young. The two lived together in his palace. Through the third season, he had a sense of respect for her, regarding her as a worthy partner in evil. This was something that Wuya did not seem to pick up on or didn't show much difference for. However, like her relationship with Jack Spicer, it was often strained, due to Chase's pride and Wuya's treacherous ways. Eventually, she began to side with Hannibal, much to Chase's disapproval, but the two eventually settled their differences and decided to stay together "for the sake of evil," hinting a form of relationship between the pair of potent villains.

Chase noted at one point that he preferred Wuya in her spirit form since he found her personality in human form to be incredibly irritating.

Hannibal Roy Bean

Contrary to her relationship with Chase and Jack, Wuya's relationship with Hannibal was very unique for one particular reason: the two seemed to share a mutual respect for each other and had always cooperated quite well when working together. The two shared a common enmity against Chase Young, and so on some occasions worked together to destroy him. Also, Wuya was the only other villain not to be betrayed by Hannibal (or vise-versa) in the show, suggesting that they enjoyed one another's company.

Salvador Cumo

In the past, Wuya had some kind of relationship with Salvador. What the nature of this relationship was, it is currently unknown.



Wuya lucratively tempted Raimundo into joining her on the Heylin side at the end of season one by using his dissatisfaction. He used the Reversing Mirror and the Serpent's Tail to convert her back into her physical form and restore her powers.[7] This gave her the ability to take control of the world again, as she did, 1500 years ago. She rewarded him for his loyalty by giving him anything he wanted. It appeared that she even let him rule by her side, granting him a limited amount of her power (since he could summon Rock Creatures on his own). In the end, however, Raimundo realized that what he really wanted was his friends, and he betrayed Wuya by trapping her in the Puzzle Box, that Dashi had made.

Much later, in "The Last Temptation of Raimundo," Raimundo was temporarily possessed by Wuya.[9] When the Shen Gong Wu had taken over his body and his will-power because of the passing of the Heylin Comet, the monks quickly freed Raimundo from the Shen Gong Wu and Wuya.

Grand Master Dashi

Dashi and Wuya shared a very complex relationship. It has not been revealed how the two first met; however, despite the fact the two were mortal enemies, Wuya seemed to have a good sense of respect for how he dresses. She once stated to Raimundo, "He was always a fool; a smart dresser, but a fool."[5] This also implied she knew him prior to their battle, which would also explain how Dashi spoke in a smug and childish tone when he talked to her. Through the Xiaolin legend, they had become the symbols of good and evil (Xiaolin and Heylin)-- Dashi representing good and Wuya representing evil.

Physical Appearance

Human Form

Wuya (Human)

Wuya's Human Form

In her human form, Wuya could resemble a vampire in some aspects. She looked quite young and beautiful, despite her true age; she had long red hair and copper brown skin with pointed ears and sharp canines and possibly red lipstick and often wore a black robe with purple outlines, a red sash, and no footwear, walking barefoot and almost always on tiptoe.

She wore eye make-up similar to Jack Spicer's, but under both eyes and with three vertical lines coming off each horizontal line. Her eyes were abnormally bright green (the same color of her Heylin Magic powers), showing behind her lovely appearance how twisted and evil she truly was.

Ghost Form

Wuya's ghost form looked very similar to a squid; a disembodied floating head with many tentacles that resembled hair. She also was constantly masked in this form. The mask's eyes resembled Jack's eye goggles. She flashed and sparked when a Shen Gong Wu was located or when she was extremely emotional. Initially, Wuya's face/mask was more like an actual mask, not changing shape or appearance in her first appearances, which highly contrasted her later appearances, where it acted more like a face, showing many different expressions.

Other Notable Attributes to Appearance

  • Wuya was commonly called an "old hag" and "Clown Face," due to her age and appearance as a spirit. While still referred to by these titles in her human form, Wuya was actually youthful and extremely striking. As she had not physically aged in the episode "Time After Time," which took place 80 years into the future, it can be assumed that she was essentially immortal and had eternal youth.[11]
  • When facing Kimiko in the Xiaolin Showdown of "The Life and Times of Hannibal Roy Bean," Wuya was momentarily seen in her good form after entering and exiting the Ying Yang World with only the Ying Yo-Yo. In this form, she looked exactly the same, except her robe was white instead of black. While good, she stated that she would open a home for birds without nests.[10]


Wuya had two voices. While in her spirit form, Wuya used a deeper more raspy voice along with an echo effect to make the character seem more frightening.

However, in human form, Wuya used a much more alluring and smooth voice to make the character appear more stimulating and manipulative.

Her voice actress is Susan Silo, in Xiaolin Showdown and Cree Summers, in Xiaolin Chronicles.
