* BadassDecay Averted: While Tai Lung does become kinder, gentler, friendlier, and an all-around good guy and hero, trading his villainous tendencies for snark, he remains as awesome and incredible a fighter as ever--not to mention hes still quite able to unleash his rage and temper on the true [[CompleteMonster Complete Monsters]].

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Most of the naysayers, from Tigress to the various villagers, have rather good points regarding the possibility of accepting Tai Lung back into the Valley, either based on him [[KarmaHoudini truly having done reprehensible things which need to be acknowledged and punished]] or by raising very legitimate fears that [[ChronicVillainy such a thing could happen again]] if he did not learn to [[FatalFlaw control his temper]] or [[CivilianVillain wasn't truly attempting to redeem himself]]. While Chang and Xiulan fill such roles, Vachir in particular has a number of points since not only did he lose family members as the others did, he was actually the legitimate authority in charge of imprisoning and punishing the snow leopard. Even the fact that Chang was a misogynist, Xiulan a rather self-righteous and narrow-minded shrew of a wife, and Vachir was revealed to be a [[ColdBloodedTorture torturous]] bully (and that the latter two both got possessed and manipulated into truly heinous acts by Chao) did not change the ultimate sensibility of some of their points--something which Tai Lung himself acknowledged as he struggled to change, prove himself, and remain true to his new path. Deliberate and intentional by WordOfGod as part of the fic's GrayAndGreyMorality.

** The BigBad is a dark master of chi who used to be allied with Master Oogway, but was eventually corrupted by his lust for power, leading Oogway to seal him away until he finally made his return centuries later, after Oogway's death. Sounds an awful lot like [[KungFuPanda3 Kai]], doesn't it?

** Another more minor point of amusement: In the author's about me page, they note that the voice they had in mind for Bao (Po's Father in this fanfiction) was Bryan Cranston. Out comes Kung Fu Panda 3, and guess who Po's canon father is voiced by?

* HarsherInHindsight: According to WordOfGod, an appropriate voice for Hai the elephant would be Dianne Wiest. This is the woman who, as the Evil Queen of TheTenthKingdom, spoke the line, "If I hear one whisper, one rumor, that anything is amiss, I will kill your children in front of you." [[spoiler:This is precisely what happened to poor Hai herself.]]

** The third movie also has a moment where a panda dons Master Flying Rhino's armor (and which Po himself admitted to fantasizing about), and the statues of the Vault of Heroes appearing uncovered and open on the mountain around the stairs... And considering both Heian Chao and Kai are spirits, it's surely the case that Chao was also [[spoiler:immune to the Wuxi Finger Hold]], which makes Tai Lung warning Po not to use it incredibly prescient.

[[FridgeHorror It's a good thing the possibilities he suggested never happened with Kai, isn't it?]]
-->'''Tai Lung''': Just what d'you suppose would happen if you used the ultimate ''chi'' move on the ultimate master of ''chi''? The least that would happen is it blowing up in your face and doing absolutely nothing. Worse, you might just make him stronger...or allow him to turn it back on you, corrupt you, vaporize you...

** Monkey getting put under MindControl (with RedEyesTakeWarning), something which was utterly PlayedForDrama (and horror) in the fic, becomes a lot funnier after seeing "The Scorpion's Sting".

** In Chapter 38, Tai Lung's thoughts: "No one needed to know he'd been so caught up in romancing Tigress he might not have noticed if Po had started dressing up in a ''cheongsam''. ''Oh gods...why did I have to go there? Someone kill me now, please...or at least murder my imagination.''" Well it may not be a ''cheongsam'', but we have gotten to see Po dressed as a woman in "[[WesternAnimation/KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness Ladies of the Shade]]". And Tai Lung's reaction is pretty apt. On a related note, Song herself being a violet-eyed snow leopardess who is nominally on the side of the bad guys, performs a HeelFaceTurn to help fight her former allies, and has a ShipTease with Po sounds a lot like Jia.
