*** Not only that: Tai Lung's eyes ''themselves'' are gold (and to judge from how he looked as a cub, this is something he gained as he grew up). While this can be interpreted as part of the snow leopard's whole "I am meant to be the best and I'm the ''real'' hero here" mentality, it can also be viewed as he ''literally'' has the eyes of a hero. Which, to tie back into the film's {{Aesop}}, means that he already was a hero all along, he just had to believe in himself. But he didn't, because he was so convinced he had to have the scroll and that coveted praise and pride from Shifu, and [{ForWantOfANail this destroyed his inner heroism and ruined his life]].

* Even during their fight itself there were moments which tugged the heartstrings. The raw pain and anguish in Tai Lung as he cried out how he only ''ever'' [[WellDoneSonGuy wanted to make Shifu proud of him]]. And whilst he initially hurls the question as to whether Shifu is proud of him ''now'' in an angry, mocking tone, when he repeats it the tone changes. It stops being a taunt and becomes a ''plea.''

** Not only that but Po looked up to the Five. And he fantasized about being friends with them. You can see how heartbroken he is when they all make it clear that they despise them. They get better but it's still painful.

* Po's father telling him the secret ingredient in his noodle soup. [[spoiler: There IS no secret ingredient. Something is only special if you believe it is. This leads Po to realize the true meaning behind the Dragon Scroll, something not even Shifu could do. Which makes it a bit of a CMOA for Mr. Ping, as well.]]

** Throughout the series, gold has been the color used for heroes. They will wear gold, or be shown in golden light. The scene where Oogway denies Tai Lung the scroll shows the leopard in a golden light, before cutting back to the present and showing him in gloom and darkness. Tai Lung, in the flashback, was probably a legitimate hero, protector of the Valley of Peace, adored and idolized by those he defended. Then he threw it all away and became TheDreaded when he was denied what he felt was his birthright.

** The worst part of all this, is while Po's ripping into Shifu, you can see Shifu ''realizing for the first time'' that Po's a person with feelings and motivations, not just some obstacle put in his way. At the same time, you can ''hear'' the desperation in Po's voice when he asks how Shifu could turn him into the Dragon Warrior, because he's brutally aware of his shortcomings and faults more than anyone else and endured heaps of abuse just to try and change.

** Tigress is spying on the whole conversation and presumably heard everything. While she has a more stoic expression than Shifu, there's enough where you could tell she's also beginning to feel bad about how she had treated Po. [[FridgeBrilliance Then you remember]] how she [[NotSoDifferent was also ostracized and felt ashamed about herself]] back when she was a child. It's clear that while she didn't show it, she's been through similar pains.

** The moment, in flashback, when Shifu could not attack Tai Lung because he in turn flashbacked to him as a cub, was also poignant and emotional.
-->'''Tigress:''' He tried to take the Dragon Scroll by force, and Shifu had to destroy what he had created...''but how could he?''

-->''[from Shifu's perspective, the adult, snarling Tai Lung attacking him suddenly changes to his cub self, cooing and happily reaching out to him with outstretched paws]''

* Oogway's talk to Po underneath the Peach Tree of Wisdom. It's when the audience sees just how much Po hates himself and how he desperately wants to be respected.

** Another thing is Tigress spying the whole thing and presumaly hearing everything. While she has a more stoic expression than Shifu, there's enough where you could tell she also feels bad about it.
