Did you ever expect me to cover Kung Fu Panda? Loyal Theorists, never doubt the extents I will go to for a theory. Today, we are getting to the center of Kung Fu Panda's biggest question - why is Po the Dragon Warrior? Now I know we can just say because the plot says so, but I am a man of science and overanalysis! There has to be a logical explanation of why this panda is the chosen one. It turns out, I was right! Let's dig in!

  • Wait wait wait a second. Did I just see Taekwondo listed when you were trying to show that they were multiple forms of kung fu? I get that you were probably trying to use a list of multiple martial arts as an example but in this channel, I've grown to expect a certain level of attention to detail. You can't list several different forms of martial arts that are not related to Kung Fu when you're talkin about different styles of kung fu.

  • Being over weight does make u less athletic because u would have to much weight on your body slowing down your movements and speed especially if you’re obese like po is

  • panda's, the most illogical animal in existence, if not for human intervention they would have been so painfully extinct for such a long time, a carnivore choosing to live of plants, they went purely against evolutionary logic.

  • I always thought that Po being the dragon warrior had something to do with the prophecy that caused Shen to commit genocide on the pandas, he was worried about his weaponry being stopped by a panda said to bring peace, sl he tries to eradicate pandas failing his goal not only because of the survivors in the 3rd movie but also because the one he needed gone wasn't taken out, with pandas having chi powers in their lineage Oogway (having been saved and taught chi techniques by Po's ancestors) sees a panda who already loves Kung Fu and secretly has the powers and claims him the dragon warrior who will not only bring peace but also become a renowned teacher of Kung Fu to not only the 5 but also to his fellow pandas linking Kung Fu, Chi, and Peace back together and keeping the traditions going

  • Its sad you left out the fact that pandas are a scam that forces the ZOOs to pay a million to China each year for each panda for renting them as all pandas in the world belong to China... that money could be better used for other endangered animals that are more important to their environment

  • If Po eats literally everything and matpat explains that how Po is strong then does it make any sense to Panda in We bare bears. I know he eats chocolates, drinks coffee but still he also loves Chinese food maybe Panda is not strong . We need to show Kung Fu Panda to Panda so that he can get strong and date more girls. ^ω^
