** Creator/EddieMurphy plays a dragon in this movie. Around three years later in {{Shrek}}, he plays a donkey that gets married to a dragon.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: "I'll Make a Man Out of You" has the line "Did they send me daughters/When I asked for sons?" which would undoubtedly be considered sexist by today's standards.

** There also strong irony in how in a movie about a Woman trying to break gender roles in the name of protecting her father, [[RatedMForManly I'll Make A Man Out of You]] ended up becoming the [[SignatureSong most popular and remembered song]] of the movie.

** Jerkass councilor Chi-Fu squeals like a girl when a panda eats his slipper. A decade later, James Hong would star, in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' where he plays Mr. Ping, a goose who is ''the adoptive father'' of titular protagonist panda!

** 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]].

!!Disney's Mulan



* GirlsNeedRoleModels: This is why Mulan is shoehorned into the Franchise/DisneyPrincess merchandise: she's the first money-making "real" ActionGirl the animated canon has to offer, though this is somewhat muted by the fact that the merchandise generally features the girly-girl look she feels slightly out-of-place in in the first act. [[note]] Another possibility that doesn't have this problem is that they need a [[FiveTokenBand token Asian girl]]. [[/note]]



* KarmaHoudini: Is Mushu more helpful or hurtful to Mulan overall, and does he really deserve his position on his pedestal? By the end of the first film it would seem like he does, but in the second film it's shown that he abuses his position to treat all of the Fa family ancestral spirits like his personal servants. Even at the end of the sequel, after almost ruining everything and barely salvaging it, he doesn't seem to have learned humility, and the second he's put back in guardian position on a technicality, he's immediately back to his Jerkass ways with the ancestors. Granted, they're not very nice to him either, but it's definitely clear that Mushu started the feud.

** "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.
