|Shen Gong Wu - Mantis Flip Coin(00:20)|
The Mantis Flip Coin was the first Shen Gong Wu to reveal itself.
The Mantis Flip coin was a red and gold coin. On the coin was golden rectengular pattern which was symetrically spread throughout the coin. In the center there was a hole with a golden border around it.
This Shen Gong Wu greatly increased its user's jumping abilities, and allowed them to jump and flip with extreme height and skill.
It was first discovered by Jack Spicer in San Francisco and used to show-off his newly obtained powers. It is later used again during the first Xiaolin Showdown by Jack to jump on the pillars after which he lost the coin to Omi. Later, Master Fung gave the coin to Raimundo Pedrosa to use in the retrieval of the Fist of Tebigong during which he used it to dodge two incoming Jack-bots.
Omi used the Wu in a training battle with Kimiko, to easily avoid her Third-Arm Sash attack. It would be the only Shen Gong Wu not stolen by Jack Spicer with the help of his Chameleon-Bot. While fighting for the Sapphire Dragon (Shen Gong Wu), Omi used it to prevent Jack from flying away. He also used it in the subsequent showdown, where its abilities were used to help Omi jump on the lava pillars. Omi once again used it in the Shen Yi Bu Dare against Jack and his Chameleon-Bot. He and Jermaine used it many times to score points in the basketball showdown. Later, Kimiko used it in a showdown with Katnappe for the Lotus Twister to jump on the crocodiles. Although Kimiko lost the Showdown, the monks regained control of it shortly thereafter. 
Clay used it in a training battle with Kimiko to avoid her attacks. However, in mid-jump, the Wu was stolen by Jack, using the power of the Shard of Lightning. Old Jack Spicer wagered the Wu in a Xiaolin Showdown tsunami against Omi and his older counterpart. However, the Wu was never used in the Showdown which Jack soon lost.
