* TranquilFury: [[spoiler:Lord Shen during the final battle at the end of his VillainousBreakdown. It makes the fight much more even and if he hadn't ended up crushed by his own cannon, he might have won]].

* TranquilFury: [[spoiler:Lord Shen during the final battle at the end of his VillainousBreakdown. It makes the fight much more even and if he hadn't ended up crushed by his own cannon, he might have won]]. Then again, Shen himself acknowledged quite early that [[spoiler: he isn't exactly the best at fighting directly which is one reason why he had build cannons, so he might have just tried to provoke a SuicideByCop]].

Added DiffLines:

** Seeing that [[spoiler: Shen doesn't accept Po's revelation about Inner Peace by accepting the past and instead fights the superior panda, only to get peacefully crushed by his own cannon]], he might be a straight example.

* SelfFulfillingProphecy: The Soothsayer said in the intro that a warrior of black and white will defeat Shen. [[spoiler:Because of his actions, Shen ended up fulfilling the destiny. If he hadn't attempted genocide, Po never would've ended up where he could learn Kung Fu and come back to defeat him in the first place. Alternately, it's outright said in the prophecy that if he doesn't change his ways, this is what will happen]].

After all, if he hadn't attacked the city with his cannons, Shifu would never have gotten a letter that made him send Po]].

* RuleOfSymbolism: The Yin Yang symbol is frequently used in this film, starting with the prophecy that Shen is destined to be defeated by 'a warrior of black and white.' Additionally, if one looks closely at the Gongmen jail floor where Po and Tigress end up sparring at one point, it also has the Ying Yang symbol placing them on opposing sides, possibly to further their ShipTease. Heck, the end credits show a baby Po being rolled - and he looks like a Yin Yang symbol.

* PostKissCatatonia: Well, a Post-''Hug'' Catatonia. At the end of the film, Po returns the hug Tigress had given him earlier, leaving her in this state.

* OlderThanTheyLook: Shen spent ''thirty years'' in exile, so he (and the Wolf Boss) must be around [[BadassGrandpa fifty]], with Po being close to or slightly over thirty.

* MickeyMousing: The first fight with the wolf pack certainly has a lot of action in sync to the music. Justified as the wolves are stealing musical instruments, and they keep getting struck during the fight, so naturally they sound in time with the action, as the action is happening to them. One musician [[DissonantSerenity also keeps playing while the battle goes on around him]].

The few times where the punches and thus music are not going well with the rhythm, it is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by the regarding characters cringing in discomfort.
