** Worse, listen to the Soothsayer essentially saying ItsAllMyFault. ''She'' told Shen a panda would stand in his way, and she states not even ''she'' could see what would happen next.

** The quietly resigned expression on Master Ox's face after Po berates him and Master Croc for [[WhatTheHellHero staying in the cells and not helping them fight Shen.]]

** The way Po sadly says "Goodbye." Not "Goodbye, I love you," or even "Goodbye, Dad," just "Goodbye," like he's wondering if his entire relationship with his father, who he's loved and trusted for 20+ years, has been built on a lie.

Added DiffLines:

* It's played for laughs, but Master Ox and Master Croc's situation when they are seen in Gongmen Jail is sobering. They saw their friend and leader Master Thundering Rhino, who was thought to be invincible, get killed by Lord Shen's cannon, and are imprisoned in the cells of their own city, aware that one wrong move could lead to Shen turning the weapon on the innocent people of Gongmen. They know exactly what's going to happen, and they're helpless to stop it.
-->'''Master Ox:''' It's time to surrender, panda. ''Kung fu is dead.''

* Shen's normally stoic demeanor when talking about his parents breaking, if only for a moment, when the Soothsayer told him that they loved him so much that sending him away killed them. For the briefest of instants, you see a look of regret and maybe a little sorrow on Shen's face before he tries to cover it up.
** In the beginning flashback, you do see Shen's parents and their reactions (at first) are of concern. When he returns, there is definite horror but also sadness. No parent wants their child to be dangerous but they had to face that.
** Furthermore, just Shen himself. He was a sickly albino peacock and while his parents cared for him, there's also evidence that he was raised mainly by the Soothsayer. And like Tai Long, everything he does is for the purpose of making his parents proud. Unlike Tai Lung, there's clear evidence Shen knows what he is doing is wrong, but he remains on the path, otherwise, everything would be for naught in his mind.

** Before that, Shen's quietly agonized query to Po about how he could ''possibly'' go on after everything was taken from him, including his parents. He was never able to let go of the past.

*** Upon seeing his parents' horrified expressions in the first flashback, Shen's expression turns from triumphant to dismayed. It looks like he honestly expected that they'd praise him for his attempt to prevent his fate through [[spoiler:genocide]].

** The final battle's ending. [[spoiler: He doesn't move from being crushed. He just seems to close his eyes and ''accept it.'' Perhaps he managed to find some peace in the end.]]

* When Po [[spoiler:gets hit by the cannon ball, it cuts to Shifu dozens of miles away as he falls from his staff and looks very distraught, implying he could sense what had just happened. The fact that Shifu who spent so much time of the first film disliking Po now looks completely heartbroken believing he's dead is what really gets to you.]]
