Lord Shen's rage and end up killing masters of Kung Fu such as Thundering Rhino, and imprisoning the furious five, Master, Storm, and Croc. As the story progresses Po discovers who and what his past was. Because of this he gains inner peace. Po returns to Gong man city in order to save his friends in captivity. Po uses inner peace to defeat Lord Shen's cannons. After Po retains victory he urges Lord Shen to let go of his past. Lord Shen refuses to do so and attacks Po.
