Nu Bao is a young resident of Panda Village. He first appears in Kung Fu Panda 3 where he meets Po and Mr. Ping, commenting on their apparent differences in looks and lifestyle to the pandas of his village. He later enlists under Po's instruction in learning kung fu, with Po helping him to utilize his proficient kicking skills from playing Ti Jianzi. Bao will be featured as one of the protagonists in the upcoming Amazon Prime series Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny.


Bao is shown to be very energetic, playful, mischievous, and hyperactive. He can also be rather curious and outspoken, asking Po why he ate with chopsticks instead of his paws, and questioning Mr. Ping's goose features as opposed to that of a panda's. He is also very good at continuously keeping toys in midair by bouncing them off his feet, similarly to kicking a soccer ball.

Bao is a trouble maker who's rough around the edges. He can be a bit arrogant and entitled but has a good heart. Unlike his twin sister, Bao has coasted through life on his charm and charisma, has a mischievous streak and likes to play practical jokes and stir up trouble. He likes to mess with his friends - particularly Fan Tong. Bao does occasionally have moments where he realizes he and Nu Hai need each other, and though Bao likes razzing his friends, he always has their back. It seems each panda kid is imbued with the ancient chi he or she needs, and this is certainly true for Bao; he absorbs the chi of the Black Tortoise, which gives him empathy and helps him learn to put others before himself.
