Lord Farquaad hires Tai Lung to defend him from a monster named Grendel. Tai Lung agrees, but Grendel is a far more monstrous being than he anticipated.

Freed by Maleficent
Entering the castle, Maleficent found a magical orb, which she used to summon two villains into the dimension to aid her: Oogie Boogie and Tai Lung.
Vs Panda King
Pete informed Maleficent of an intruder in her castle, and she saw it as a fine time to test Tai Lung's strength. The intruder turned out to be the Panda King, who wanted to avenge Mz. Ruby. After Tai Lung taunted him, the Panda King sent the snow leopard flying back with a burst of fire. Tai Lung responded by lighting his paws on fire from a nearby torch and quickly closed the distance. Dodging around the Panda King's attacks, Tai Lung beat him into submission.
With two members of the Fiendish Five gone, Raleigh called his friend Muggshot to plan a counter strike against whoever was taking out their teammates. Their meeting was interrupted by the powerful warrior Tai Lung. Raleigh and Muggshot quickly attacked Tai Lung together with Muggshot peppering Tai Lung with bullets and Raleigh squashing the snow leopard under his bulk, but the tide of the battle was turned when Syndrome arrived. Syndrome zapped Muggshot into submission while Tai Lung punched Raleigh into a pond. Grateful for the assistance, Tai Lung joined forces with Syndrome.
Against Master Hand Forces
Now that their defenses had been destroyed, Maleficent, Jafar, Tai Lung, Pete, a Shadow Clone of Oogie Boogie (Made by the bag of bugs himself so he could still recover at the base) and Master Xehanort entered the scene. They were immediately attacked by Wario, Gruntilda and her sisters, Bowser, Ganondorf, Kefka, and Kuja. Right off the bat, Tai Lung was able to crush both of Grunty's sisters causing the bag of bones to temporary flee. Bowser fired his cannon at the clone which easily disposed of it. Though Tai Lung and Jafar easily destroyed the cannon, Grunty returned in a huge tank to protect herself and started firing one huge spell. But when Maleficent made Gruntilda drop the spell things got explosive. After watching the tank explode, Wario decided that if he stayed around, he'd end up like Gruntilda and left the battlefield, Bowser joined him shortly after a failed battle with Pete. While all this commotion was going on, Kefka convinced Kuja to join the fray. He did so but was easily disposed of by Jafar. Out of nowhere, Braig entered the battlefield. While he was easily defeated he claimed he was "buying time" and left. Meanwhile Master Xehanort found Princess Peach and absorbed her power. Using her power and the power from the other 6 princesses he was able to summon Kingdom Hearts over the battlefield and tried to absorb its power. Seeing that the ruse was up, Xehanort had Vanitas go and kill Tai Lung.
