A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

You could argue that it promotes and models teamwork as the elements need to work together in order to defeat General Bu. However, one of the elements, fire, has willingly gone to General Bu’s side so even some on the team members are not working with others. Nevertheless, the leader Yun, helps the characters see that they are more powerful if they believe in themselves, which comes true in the end.

Positive Messages

Viewers will see the characters work together to defeat evil and through this process, they will learn to believe in themselves.  

Positive Role Models & Representations

Master Raindrop works with Shao Yen (the human representing the wood element) to find the other elements and battle Flamo (the fire element) who has voluntarily joined General Bu. Their teamwork and perseverance pays off in the end.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Master Raindrop is unique in that it features the elements (water, fire, etc) and martial arts, but it definitely follows the typical good versus evil plot. While the characters do work together and learn about themselves, the character development is somewhat lacking, therefore you aren't really rooting for anyone in particular to succeed or be defeated.

What's the story?

MASTER RAINDROP is one of five elements (water, wood, metal, fire, and earth) who work together to battle evil and save their master, Yun, from General Bu and his terracotta army.

Is it any good?

The animated show is visually appealing, yet its storyline is typical of what you would find in other martial arts shows and movies. It does promote teamwork as the characters need to work together, yet even its choice of some of the elements (wood, earth, metal) feels a little off. While Master Raindrop has some features typically found in a martial arts show, they usually battle by throwing things (ball of flame, ball of water) at one another, and then others jump to avoid these things.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how the battle between the elements might have been stronger. If Master Raindrop had thrown his water at Flamo, what would have happened? What if Flamo threw his fire at Shao Yen (Wood)?

  • Kids: What two elements would have the strongest battle against each other and why? How can the other elements convince Flamo to leave General Bu to join them? Why would Flamo want to stay with General Bu?
