** The name changes cause Western audiences to miss out on some subtext: the last character in "Jiaolong" is "dragon," and the last character in "Xiaohu" is "tiger."

* DeathOfTheHypotenuse: Shu Lien's fiancé and [[BacktoBackBadasses Mu Bai's best friend]], Meng Si Zhao, was killed in battle defending Mu Bai's life. However, for years, Shu Lien and Mu Bai refused to enter into a relationship, out of respect and honour for their friend and her fiancée. The possibility that he might have been pleased to have the two people dearest to him come together, after a respectable period of mourning, unfortunately never occurs to either.

* StrawFeminist: Jade Fox. She basically comes off as a low-level misandrist after Li Mu Bai's teacher refused to actually teach her, since apparently women can't train at Wudang. It seems, however, that Shu Lien is at least somewhat Wudang experienced as well, as she is the only character other than Mu Bai that can defeat Jen. She can also do the gravity defying WireFu that only people that learned at/stole technique books from Wudang can do. More concretely, Mu Bai says that for Jen, they would surely make an exception, and he (literally) fights to get her to be his student. Maybe Mu Bai's teacher saw that Jade Fox was less than scrupulous, rather than just passing her over due to sex. Seems like sour grapes on her part. [[spoiler: [[FridgeBrilliance Or maybe that's really why she wanted to kill Jen, instead of the fact that she hid her skill and kept Fox from improving.]]]]
