Tigress is a major supporting protagonist in the Kung Fu Panda franchise, being the tritagonist of the first film
and the deuteragonist of the second. She is the strongest, serious and leader of the Furious Five, five of the strongest masters of Kung Fu in China. Many fans of the series consider her to be the love interest of Po, the main character of the series.
At the start of the series, when they first meet, she considers Po a nuisance, and wants nothing to do with him, especially after he seemingly steals her chance to become the Dragon Warrior. By the end of the first film, however, she seems to have accepted him as a fellow warrior, and seems to warm up to him much more later in the series.
She is voiced by Angelina Jolie in the movies and by Kari Wahlgren in the TV series and video games.
Tigress is the strongest and boldest of theFurious Five. She is noted to have the typical qualities of a hero: overachieving, brave, fearless, and willing to do anything to save the day. The one exception to her willingness, however, was to believe in po, whom she thought was a joke. But even the strongest can be wrong, and Tigress learned that destiny sometimes arrives in unexpected ways. Since the events of the first film, she has been unwaveringly loyal to Po and what he represents as the Dragon Warrior. But underneath her stoic, iron-jawed exterior is a warm compassion that others seldom see.
She is generally friendly, but the least sociable of the Five, and can be very intimidating at times due to her incredibly serious and direct demeanour. In many scenes of the first film in which the other four of the Furious Five and/or Po were joking or having fun, Tigress would often remain quiet and withdrawn. At the time, it was strongly believed, by Shifu and herself, that Oogway was about to choose her as the Dragon Warrior before Po's entrance, despite Oogway's statements. As a result, Tigress bitterly resented Po for thwarting her dream, and was the most vocal of the Five in her contempt for the panda and his perceived lack of respect for Kung fu , even while her comrades grew to respect him, perhaps still believing she was the Dragon Warrior.
