[[AC:Secrets of the Scroll]] * Tigress' story in this short is very similar to Po's story in the first ''Kung Fu Panda''. Namely, she struggles with attempting a fighting style that doesn't fit her, Shifu treats her badly, she has a talk with Oogway under the peach tree that motivates her, and in the end, she realizes that she fights the best when she uses her own technique.

** There's a very small 'hint' from Tigress during the boat scene that might slip by most people. When Po comments on her training having given her rock-hard arms as being "severely cool!", Tigress smiles and slowly blinks at him. If one where to read up on tigers, one would find that they do not purr; to show happiness, ''they squint and slowly blink.'' Tigress must have really liked that compliment from him.

** Good point, although with the Wolf Boss vs Tai Lung thing, then Tai Lung wasn't trying to punch Po, he was striking for his nerve points while the Wolf Boss just went for a gut punch. It might be why Po felt one and not the other.

This is a guess, not a fact.
* The Soothsayer's prophecy states that Shen will be defeated by a "warrior of black-and-white". It takes some thinking to realise that the "warrior of black and white" in the prophecy is [[spoiler:''Shen himself''. His primary colours are also black and white. Note that the cannons and the gunpowder are black. There is a brief, stylized shot showing Shen with half his face black paralleling the ying-yang symbol, and it is the smoke figure of Shen that transforms into the yin-yang symbol when the Soothsayer tries to predict his fate. And in the final confrontation, some of Shen's white feathers are covered in black soot. Over the course of the movie, including the backstory, Shen loses his parents, his right to the throne of Gongmen city (and eventually destroys even its symbol, the throne itself, upon returning), his old home, his surrogate mother, and his oldest and only remaining friend, all through his own actions. Even the destruction of his remaining forces in the finale comes from deflected cannon shots he ordered to fire. Finally, in the last battle against Po, he directly contributed to the wreck of his cannon falling on him by accidentally cutting the ropes during the fight. Indeed, it can be argued that Shen defeated and destroyed himself quite thoroughly, and maybe he even realizes the irony, when he calmly allows the cannon to crush him]].

** Maybe Po's biological father was a locally reknowned Kung Fu warrior, and Shen's mind immediately assumed it would be him or one of his students who were fated to defeat him.

* Viper being the most sympathetic out of the Furious Five towards Po regarding his "Daddy Issues" makes sense when you consider the tension between her and her father in her backstory.

*After Shen was told that a warrior of black and white would defeat him if he continued on his dark path, he went out and apparently killed only pandas. Yet there are other animals out there that are more threatening then pandas that are black and white, like white tigers or even cranes (as Master Crane is mostly black and white). It could also be another seemingly albino animal like Shen, meaning it wouldn't even have to be an entire species of animal and could be an individual. Also because animals in this world wear clothes, it could be a black animal with a white outfit or vise versa. So why focus exclusively on just pandas when the prophecy never mentioned what kind of warrior would defeat him?

* Much like the previous film, it is Po's softness and ability to redirect attacks that allowed him to win. Master Thundering Rhino's signature attack was his Horn ''Defense''; it's implied that when Shen shot the cannon at him, he stood his ground and tried to absorb the blow. The large crater it left in the tower's courtyard shows the result of that. Po, on the other hand, used the water-drop technique not to stop or even slow down the cannon ball, but to redirect it's force at something else.

* The movie and the background material seem to give accounts of Shen's parents that don't add up. The movie presents them as loving parents who ultimately died of grief at having been forced to outlaw their son for committing genocide (banishment for such a crime seems like mercy truthfully) while the background material classifies them as being ashamed of their sickly albino son. But look at how Shen took his banishment, he saw it as a sign his parents hated him [[NeverMyFault in spite of the fact he'd just committed one of the most horrible acts one could possibly commit]]. The one person who knew his parents when they gave him to her to raise was the Soothsayer, who outright tells Shen his parents ''did'' love him. On top of this, the Soothsayer is shown to be skilled in medicine when she [[spoiler:heals Po after he's shot with Shen's cannon]]. Whose to say Shen wasn't given to the Soothsayer to be cared for because he was sickly and it's merely his own thinking that makes him believe they were ashamed of him? If he could blame them for banishing him for genocide, it's perfectly in character for him.
