It one thing to face kung fu pandas, at least the monkeys and fish were feral but... Kung Fu bugs? I can almost here my character saying "Great, just EFFEN GREAT!" while tossing her hand in the air and engaging in deadly combat with said bug.

What kun fu bugs? The Mantid? They don't fight using kung fu moves.

Edit: Don't not are

Why would your character face palm? Your character doesn't have American pop culture experience to face palm over any of this! Your character has no reason to believe bears can't be sentient and know specialized martial arts, having seen, for example Furbolgs. Your character would also have no reason to facepalm over Mantid, having already faced Qiraji and Nerubians.

Why do people keep bringing up Kung Fu Panda? Haven't we pointed out 100 times that Pandaren predate furry Jack Black by several years?

I have to honestly say that, after having watched both Kung Fu Panda movies a billion times and the tv series repeatedly, that I no longer associate Mists of Pandaria with it. At first I was a bit nervous to see what they'd do but Po is the last thing that comes to my mind now when playing.

Kudos to Blizzard for creating a spectacularly breathtaking expansion that holds up on its own and can actually distance itself from that particular animated film/series.

You're totally right, Crappytank.

We should all go back to the high quality days of TBC, when we went to that planet with the darkness-worshipping birds that had crazy evil magic rituals.

I mean, at least the writers had a sense of high class, then.

same reasons people think its still cool to hate blood elves
same reason people still think twilight memes are funny
same reason people still use terms like wrath baby or cata kid

basically people are unable to think for themselves so they run to the most popular phrase or analogy or "thing to hate".

Also if you dislike the Mantids this much than you must have hated the nerubians, and the qiraji seeing as they are essentially the same thing.

The Mantid are no different from the Qiraji and the Nerubians. Also, the Story Forum is the last place I would have imagined people complaining about the Pandaren. The vast majority here accepted them as apart of the story a long time ago.

Also, what Jaelara said.

Why exactly are European martial arts fine with you, but Asian martial arts are face palm worthy?

The only reason you see Pandaren and Po both being portly and liking food and drink while being happy is because they are both a play on an ancient theme in Chinese mythology and culture, the Fat Happy Buddha.

It's an emergent phenomenon, Samwise basically took his love for dwarves and merged it with something close to Usagi Yojimbo or something.

It doesn't take a genius to think, hey, Pandas are big and bear like, they must like food and drink!

I guess Yogi Bear liked picnic baskets because he,... uh.
