All Temple Guardians, both past and present, both mortal and immortal; must be present for the powers of the band to be rejuvenated for the next twelve year cycle.

Master Chin and Shoong on The 12 Hour Cycle in Thief Of Power

The 12 Hour Cycle is a Cycle in which all Temple Guardians have to go through and turn into their specified animal in order for their Band to rejuvenate for the next 12 Hour Cycle. Each band has it's own time to rejuvenate and when the process happens, the band must stay within the Temple walls. It is also noted in Master Chin's Diary that if anyone touches the band, it's powers will be absorbed by that person and the band becomes useless, with it's powers being concealed inside the 'Thief Of Power'. When the cycle takes place, if the band comes in contact with anyone, the Guardians who have turned into their animal will not be able to return to their human state. The process takes place every 12 hours every 12 years.

In Thief Of Power a Former Pig Guardian named Tommy Voo is broken out of prison by Master Chin and Shoong, as the Pig Power Band's 12 Hour Cycle is taking place and all Temple Guardians, both past and current have to be present for the powers of the band to rejuvenate for the next 12 Year Cycle, however, Tommy Voo tries to steal the Pig Power band while it is undergoing the Cycle so the power could be concealed within him, he was stopped by Ang, Ling and Beingal and The Power band Of The Pig fully underwent the 12 Hour Cycle successfully.
