* HaveAGayOldTime:
** The name Mulan uses disguised as a boy is [[ADateWithRosiePalms Fa Ping.]] A similar word is now common around the internet. A man may masturbate a lot because he doesn't get with many women. The name is a pun in Chinese as well for a pretty flower vase, as in eye candy; something pretty and useless.

* GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity: Subverted at the end when Mulan is offered the position of imperial councillor, which she respectfully declines so she can return home:
-->'''Emperor''': Chi Fu.\\
'''Chi Fu''': Your Excellency?\\
'''Emperor''' [''indicating Mulan'']: See to it that this woman is made a member of my council.\\
'''Chi Fu''': A member of... what?!\\
'''Chi Fu''': But there are no council positions open, Your Majesty.\\
'''Emperor''' [''to Mulan'']: Very well, you can have ''his'' job.

'''Chi Fu''': Your commanding officer just asked you a question!\\
'''Mulan''': Uh, I've got a name, ha! And it's a boy's name, too.\\
'''Mushu''' [''whispering'']: How about Ling?\\
'''Mulan''' [''looking at Ling'']: His name's Ling.\\

'''Mushu''': [[IncrediblyLamePun Gesundheit;]] I kill myself.\\

* {{Jerkass}}: Chi Fu is a chauvinist prick [[spoiler:who condemns Mulan with the death penalty once her gender is found out, despite the fact she saved them all from the Hun army in the mountains. He tries this again after she and the others saved the Emperor and ''all of China'' from the Huns. [[UngratefulBastard Some gratitude]]...]]

* {{Jerkass}}: Chi Fu is a chauvinist prick [[spoiler:who condemns Mulan with the death penalty once her gender is found out, despite the fact she saved them all from the Hun army in the mountains. He tries this again after she and the others saved the Emperor and ''all of China'' from the Huns. Huns, still insisting she will 'never be worth anything'. When the Emperor asks for Mulan to be made a member of his council, he appears to be lying when he says there aren't any council positions open, so apparently saving China still doesn't impress him [[UngratefulBastard Some gratitude]]...]]]]

* ArtisticLicenseMartialArts:
** During the "I'll Make a Man Out of You" sequence they do deeds worthy of Bruce Lee.
** Take a look at when Mulan kicks Shang. She pivots on her ''toe'' -- in martial arts, you typically pivot on the ball of your foot.

* ShownTheirWork: Shan-Yu doesn't even question that "the soldier from the mountains" would be a woman when Mulan reveals herself to him. In Hun society, women were equal with men in many ways, including eligibility to join the army and hunting. It didn't matter that she was a woman; to him, she was just another soldier.
