** "I'll Make a Man out of You" , easily the most iconic song from the movie (and one of the more iconic songs from the DisneyRenaissance period in general), this song is widely and rightly considered awesome.

* AmericansHateTingle: Despite famous voice actors such as Creator/JackieChan and using a local folk tale, the movie didn't do much at the Chinese box office. Some blame piracy, some worry that the native audience took issue with [[BroadStrokes the extensive reworking]] [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks of the original myth]], and some point to the fact that the Chinese government was in the middle of a bitter and spiteful dispute with the Walt Disney corporation thanks to Disney's Creator/TouchstonePictures label releasing ''Kundun'', which prompted the Chinese to ban its helmer Creator/MartinScorsese from getting back into China and force ''Mulan'' to languish for a year before letting it out with an unfavorable release date just after the Chinese New Year's celebration stuffed the box office with other films (on top of that, ''Kundun'' was a BoxOfficeBomb). Ten years later, DreamworksAnimation's ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' would prove much more to Chinese tastes.

** Go into any room (or bar, or internet chatroom...) full of people who grew up with this movie (teenagers and twentysomethings at this point) and sing "[[EarWorm Let's get down to business]]". They will not only finish the line for you, but also sing the entire song.

They The effect is similar to that of saying "[[Film/{{Labyrinth}} You remind me of the babe]]" in a group of nerds - they will not only finish the line for you, but also sing the entire song.

* CompleteMonster: Shan Yu, the leader of the Huns. He views the Emperor of China having built the Great Wall as both an insult and a challenge. As a violent BloodKnight, Shan Yu leads his horde of Huns to invade, relishing when China knows he's there. After capturing two Imperial spies, Shan Yu releases them with a message for the Emperor- but jokingly has one of his archers kill one anyways as you only need one man to deliver a message. Shan Yu later ambushes the armies of General Li at a village, resulting in a mass slaughter, not only of the soldiers, but every civilian as well, with no children spared either. Even after his army's downfall, Shan Yu attacks the Imperial Palace with his remaining men and takes the Emperor hostage, furiously attempting to kill him when he refuses to kneel to Shan Yu.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Some people see Mulan as transsexual, mostly because of the lyrics of "Reflection." Some fans [[http://danascullys.tumblr.com/post/19035570033/am-i-gay-a-journey-of-self-discovery-with-shang speculate]] that Shang developed romantic feelings for Mulan [[HoYay before discovering she was female]].

* MisaimedFandom: Mulan has got a reputation among some fans as a YouGoGirl girliness-hating {{Tomboy}}. This same fanbase reacts with disgust at her wearing the pink dress in most of the Franchise/DisneyPrincess merchandise, claiming it [[RealWomenDontWearDresses undermines her character]]. This is ignoring the fact that Mulan's discomfort at the beginning of the movie was over not wanting to let her family down - and that she ''wanted'' to be a good wife. On a more superficial level she does actually like how she looks in the pink dress. She seems to wear pink because so many of the ''other'' Disney Princesses are colour-coded with blue outfits (Cinderella, Belle, Jasmine and Snow White) and Aurora likewise is shown in a pink dress for this reason.
