Plot summary

Po appears to be leading a tranquil life with his noodle-throwing father Mr. Ping and is getting ready to embark on a food tour of China, where he will eat noodles and dumplings while interacting with his fans.

His objective is to reach a village that is home to a “fat gobs” restaurant owned by Pei Pei. He arrives to find a crowd of fans waiting for him, and he is ravenous because he can’t go to Pei Pei’s restaurant.

When he arrives, a disturbance outside ensues while he waits for his big gobs. Veruca and Klaus Dumont, two weasels, are committed to stealing a potent glove known as “The Gauntlet.”

When Po finally hears the commotion, he rushes out to protect the village but, after capturing it in the battle and chasing the weasels, all he manages to escape with is his thumb. Po had underestimated the might of the Gauntlet.

But by that time, the village has been completely ruined, in addition to his reputation. Mr. Ping informs him that his title as a Dragon Master has been withdrawn when he gets home.

Po finds a mysterious-looking knight who he believes is aiding the Dumonts during their conflict. The Dumonts will devastate the world if they utilize the Gauntlet and other hazardous jewels, so Wandering Blade travels from England to fight against them. the knight discovers when she arrives looking for the Dragon Master she heard about.

Po wants to accompany her on her mission, but all she sees is the clumsy panda; because Po is so determined to restore his reputation, he will stop at nothing to persuade her that he is deserving.

Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight ending explained in detail:

A newborn friendship

Following Veruca and Klaus around China, Po and Blade not only get closer but also start to trust one another and share cultural knowledge.

The weasels avoid them at every stop since the quest is challenging. Until Veruca is able to obtain a magical artefact, a miraculous armband with natural control.

After acquiring such a potent skill, Klaus and Veruca head for the Imperial City to kill the emperor and steal a fire-striking whip, another potent artefact.

Arriving first, Po and Blade are detained by the cowardly emperor. The present is nobody there to guard the emperor when Veruca comes. The emperor, who is unable to defend himself, is the target of Veruca and Klaus’ attempt to seize the whip.

Po feels betrayed but respects Blade

In the meantime, it is made clear that Blade is a fake knight. She went after the weasel siblings after stealing her armour and weapon. She is seeking revenge because, as it was subsequently revealed, her older brother was murdered by the crooks.

Colin, an actual English knight, has been tasked with returning her to England so that she can face justice.

Colin is ultimately defeated by Blade in combat, and she then chains him to a tree. She then returns to the emperor’s castle, where she battles Klaus and Veruca alongside Po.

Po explains that although if she isn’t a true knight, the fact that she upholds the knight code qualifies her as one in his view. But it’s awful that she lied to him. Blade, realizing how betrayed Po is apologizes for her actions. 

The duo gets back in action

Po and Blade engage in an epic battle, employing their most potent moves to stave off Veruca’s incredible strength. Veruca, who has a thing for Po, even invites him to govern with her. Po naturally declines the offer.

The whip and the gauntlet are merely two of a set of four ancient weapons, Klaus and Veruca reveal at this point. The person who is able to combine all four weapons will be unstoppable.

Po and Blade succeed in recovering the whip, also thanks to the assistance of a monkey master who is currently the Whip’s owner. Veruca and Klaus flee while they search for the other two weapons before returning to retrieve the whip.

The squad makes the decision to pursue the siblings and locate the weapons before they do, realizing that the entire planet is in danger.
