* AcousticLicense: An aversion {{played for laughs}}. After Lord Shen has shot Po with a cannon, he sails his ships to open sea in order to conquer all of China. Then he sees Po atop a roof far away. Po stands heroically and then starts giving an inspiring speech... except no one can hear him. After a few confused "What?"'s, Shen gives up trying to understand Po and just orders his troops to fire.

* CardboardPrison: Po and the Five have no problem busting into the jail where Masters Storming Ox and Croc are being kept. In fact, they actually have more trouble convincing Ox and Croc to ''escape'' as they've been demoralized by [[GameChanger Lord Shen's cannon]] and are convinced that [ResistanceIsFutile. Cue a hilarious scene where the various kung fu Masters keep kicking down the barred iron door or putting it back up again while they argue. And even when the cell door is destroyed during the struggle, Ox and Croc simply walk into the opposite cell and lock themselves in there. [[spoiler:At the climax, Ox and Croc appear at the battle to stop Shen, revealing that Shifu talked some sense into them.]]
-->'''Storming Ox:''' Like I said, you are NOT getting me out of this cell! ''(realizes he's been thrown out of the cell in the struggle; the cell door falls to the floor and smashes to bits)''
-->'''Po''': YES! Whoo-hoo! Alright! Let's... (''his triumph fades as Ox and Croc simply walk into the opposite cell and shut the door behind them'') ...go.
-->'''Croc''': I get the top bunk.
-->'''Storming Ox''': It's time to surrender, panda. Kung fu is ''dead!''
-->''(Po and the Five gasp, shocked to the very core)''
-->'''Po''': Y-You... w-woo... kung fu is... de-eaah... ''FINE!'' You stay in your prison of fear, with bars made of hopelessness... and all you get are three square meals a day of... shame!
-->'''Croc''': With despair for dessert.
-->'''Po''': We'll take on Shen, and prove to all those who are hungry for justice and honor that kung fu still lives!
-->'''Pig''': (''in another cell'') [[FlatJoy Yeah...]]

Considered one of [=DreamWorks=]' finest films, ''Kung Fu Panda 2'' became the highest grossing film ''of all time'' to be directed solely by a woman.

*** There's also the fact that Po, Ping's only son (even if it's adopted), went off to fight against a lethally skilled warlord, in a city far from home. Mr Ping's breakdown near the end of the film can be quite the TearJerker for parents with their own kids who have dangerous jobs.
** For Shen's parents, they discover that their son launched a genocidal campaign against an innocent village of pandas. Due to TheChainsOfCommanding, they have to exile him, and as the Soothsayer puts it, the very act killed them.
*** And that all started because Shen reacted badly to their disapproval of his dreams of inventing the cannon, and that they weren't careful enough that Shen overheard the prophecy foretelling his doom, which spurred his actions in the first place.

* BittersweetEnding: Leaning a bit more towards sweet. However, even though Po has managed to save the day, he still believes that the rest of his kind is gone. And [[spoiler: though the audience knows that is not the case, and that Po's father finally knows his son is alive, they are still miles apart from each other, and the remaining pandas, while managing to repopulate, have fled in exile from the rest of the world to seek safety]].
** The fate of the villains in this movie also add to the bittersweet-ness of the ending. Yes, they were defeated, but they were more than just PunchClockVillains, and [[BigBad Shen]] himself was a TragicVillain who only wanted to achieve his dreams and make his parents proud - but failed utterly in accomplishing either.

** The final river fleet showdown is possibly inspired by ''Film/RedCliff'', where clever strategy triumphs over a bulky fleet of clumsy yet heavily armed ships.



** The blind rabbit musician who continues to play through the initial battle with wolves is most likely a reference to the battle in the rain from ''Film/{{Hero}}'', which was accompanied by a blind musician.
** Another one to the same movie is when Tigress intercepts the incoming fiery arrows to protect the others. In ''Hero'' though, [[RuleOfCool they were not fiery]].
