Master Tigress is the strongest and boldest of the Furious Five. She is noted to have the typical qualities of a hero: brave, beautiful, fearless, and willing to do to do anything to save the day. She and Master Shifu thought that she was the Dragon Warrior and was about to be picked by Master Oogway until Po dropped in unexpectedly, thwarting her her chance. Tigress bitterly created a disliking to Po, thinking he was a joke to Kung Fu. The rest of the Furious Five also agreed that she was the true Dragon Warrior, but still managed to get to know him a little more socially. Tigress voluntarily withdrew herself when the rest chatted happily and laughed with the panda. Although, she eventually showed her respect to him and his role as the Dragon Warrior when he defeated Tai Lung.
Master Tigress is a warrior under the Tiger Style of Kung Fu. Her fighting style is direct, powerful, strong, firm, and aggressive – while adding a bit of Wushu like acrobatic flair to the mix. She’s not afraid to unleash her hard-hitting Kung Fu on anybody, not even the fearsome Tai Lung. She’s usually the one to hit first in a fight. She doesn’t have fear in her heart, but certainly can inflict fear in other's hearts with her ferocity. Tigress is a warrior to be feared and admired. Tigress strikes directly without hesitation utilizing speed, agility, and power to shatter opponents’ defences. Like a traditional fighter in tiger Kung Fu, Tigress stays close to the ground. She is agile, acrobatic, elegant, and fights honorably.
Tigress is a disciplined, by-the-book sort of student. She knows her place and rank, but is not in the least bit selfish. She fights for honor in the protection of others. Her sense of right and wrong is great and uses it in almost everything she does. Althought she may seem intimidating, hard, and stoic to most, she actually harbors a warm compassion underneath her exterior. She is sometimes shown being playful with children and is unwaveringly polite to all the citizens of the Valley of Peace. What Tigress may lack in social skills, she makes up for in her strong moral code and heroism. Her species is a South China Tiger.
