* {{Determinator}}: Never throws in the towel, no matter how dire her circumstances get.

* {{Determinator}}: Never throws in the towel, no matter how dire her circumstances get. Though she comes close after her secret is discovered and she is abandoned in disgrace by the army, she rallies out of her self-doubt and back into action the very second she realizes that the Huns still pose a threat.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: In the matchmaker sequence, she seems more concerned about bringing honor to her family than about the fact that someone else will be making the decision about who she marries for her, and dutifully goes along with the whole thing despite being awkward in the role of a proper bride to be (to be fair, after her failure to impress the matchmaker, she shows cognitive dissonance about it in "Reflection"). By the sequel, though, this is blatantly being subverted, with Mulan daring to object to the impending arranged marriages of the princesses.

* FemininityFailure: She screws up the traditionally feminine "matchmaker" process. To be fair it was not ''completely'' her fault; the cricket shares partial responsibility.
* FireForgedFriends: with Yao, Ling, and Chien-Po (though Chien-Po less so, considering he didn't start out vitriolic). The first two played pranks on "Ping" during the training montage, but they eventually gained respect for "Ping" (demonstrated with Yao gladly handing "Ping" "his" Bo Staff at the end of the montage, as opposed to tripping "him" like in the beginning).

* TheQuietOne: Mulan tends to be the least talkative person in a room. Notably, she's only ever chatty when she's around non-talking animals, like Little Brother and Kahn. When talkers like Mushu, her family, or the other soldiers are around, she tends to listen ''far'' more often than she speaks.



* ShipperOnDeck: Mulan immediately shouted with joy when she discovered that the princesses truly loved Ling, Yao, and Chien-Po.

* TomboyPrincess: In her movie, no. But since she is part of the Disney Princess line-up. She is shown to be a brave warrior with other men, pretending to be a man, but is not particularly boyish herself.

* TheAtoner: It's implied that part of the reason he follows Mulan around and helps Mushu help her is out of guilt for sabotaging her visit to the Matchmaker. When Mulan first releases him into the wild he's ready to go until he hears her singing sadly about being a failure, looks extremely sad, then seems to dedicate his life to watching over her.

He then helps Mushu help Mulan when she joins the army, which also causes a lot of problems. However, Mulan eventually flourishes in the army and successfully defeats the Huns, and then both Cri-Kee and she survive the avalanche and later fireworks. Lampshaded by Mushu.



** Later subverted when it's revealed he apparently isn't.
