** 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.

* 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.]]

** 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?''

* When Po tries to leave only to be stopped by Shifu who realizes he has to train him. Po confesses that he endured all the abuse Shifu and the Five shoved at him because he is ashamed of being a fat, useless failure and could not abandon his one chance to become something more. It gives the film such heart while Shifu struggles to find a way to help the panda.

* When Po tries to leave only to be stopped by Shifu who realizes he has to train him. Po confesses that he endured all the abuse Shifu and the Five shoved at him because he is ashamed of despite it all, Po said the pain couldn't hurt as much as the pain Po felt in being a fat, useless failure ''him.'' Po going into length over just how much it hurt being himself and the heart-rending realization at just how little Po thinks of himself is one of the more brutal moments of the franchise, especially because many people could not abandon his one chance connect to become something more.that sort of feeling.

*** [[FridgeLogic The more you think about it, the sadder it gets.]] Shifu 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 is closer to Oogway than anyone else in the world... and then he just ''disappears.''

If we were to take the animated series as canon, Shifu was with the Jade Palace since he was ''twelve''.
