Notice how Shan Yu doesn’t even question it or make a comment about “BUT YOU’RE A GIRL” he just instantly goes into a “I’LL TEACH YOU TO KILL MY MEN AND STEAL MY VICTORY” rage and I think about this a lot sometimes
((Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun. Women among the Huns had higher status than their Chinese counterparts and even some of their own men. Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders. So for Shan Yu Mulan is just another soldier))
Also a lesson in “Yes, you actually do look that different with your hair up.”
Seriously though, all of the above.
Mulan spends the whole movie looking for approval as a woman. And it means so much that the first person to accept her fully upon discovering this is her enemy. She already took him down in the mountains, and he respects (per se?) her achievements, and that she took down his men, no matter her gender.
