WoW hardly invented the concept of a fighting panda as warcraft 3 didn't come out until 2002, by then Panda from Tekken had already been out for 5 years, and apparently the concept for Kung Fu Panda was pitched in 2001.
I am curious as to who really was the first martial arts panda because it's such a recurring thing. I can't imagine that Panda from Tekken was the first one. --- Don't forget to check out my MegaTen themed webcomics at http://www.drunkduck.com/user/Strain42/ (Currently Updating: Persona 4TW Add-On M-F)
Yup, that's ranma dad who was cursed to turned into a panda whenever he touched cold water and turns back with hot water, Same thing happens to ranma but instead of a panda, he turns into a hot red head girl. --- Official Crystal of the Pokemon X and Y board
I have no problem with a panda Pokemon, but I find it odd that it debuts in a generation based on France instead of any of the Asian based generations. --- I don't care if you hate every Pokemon Gen but the first one. Just don't get all up in my face about it and let me love all five.
