** More specifically, Tai Lung declares "It's nothing!" ''[[{{Symbolism}} right while he's looking at his own reflection]]'' in the Dragon Scroll. Add in the fact how he clearly felt the only way anything he did mattered was if it made Shifu proud of him, and him being an orphan left on the doorstep, and it's very clear Tai Lung has a ''huge'' InferioritySuperiorityComplex and that much of his rage and lashing out, from the rampage to his final attack on Po, is motivated by this. While it doesn't excuse the awful things he did, it is incredibly sad that the snow leopard had no sense of his own worth, that he believed everyone (from his birth family to Shifu and Oogway) had turned on him or abandoned him, that he felt everything he had learned and done had been for nothing, and that [[DramaticIrony he ended up almost killing the one he had loved so much]]. (Just [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/it_cannot_be.jpg look at his face]] when Oogway denies him the scroll and Shifu just turns and walks away without defending him.)

** 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?''



-->'''Shifu''': ''[desperately pleading]'' Master! You can't leave me.

is already old himself. ''How long'' has Oogway been his master, his guide, his friend, even his own surrogate father? There's little doubt Shifu had is closer to destroy what Oogway than anyone else in the world... and then he had created...''but how could he?''just ''disappears.''

** 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 just as aware of his shortcomings as anyone else, he doesn't have any more faith in himself than anyone, and he's absolutely desperate to be ''wrong'' about himself.

* Tai Lung turning against his Master, and spending 20 years in prison, for what turns out to be..."Nothing?!" No wonder he went berserk instead of accepting the same epiphany that Po did.

* 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.]]

'''Po''': Yeah, I stayed. I stayed because every time you threw a brick at my head, or said I smelled, it hurt... But it could never hurt worse than every day of my life just being ''me''. I stayed, because I thought if anyone could change me; could make me ''NOT'' me, it was you! The greatest kung-fu teacher in all of China!
