Chapter 20: To the Front is the twentieth chapter in the Kingdom Hearts II manga.


Sora is startled to discover Mulan is actually a woman. Mushu attacks Sora, Donald, and Goofy to protect Mulan, but then recognizes them. Mulan and Mushu explain why Mulan took her father's place to join the army, and how she'll be put to death if anyone would find out she's a woman. Sora, Donald, and Goofy promise to help her. Elsewhere, a member of Organization XIII convinces Shan-Yu to join them in exchange for power.

The next day, the army crosses a snowy mountain on the way to war. After a while, they reach a mountain village, only to find it completely burned down. At that moment, Shan-Yu appears with his army of Huns and charges at Li Shang's army. They attempt to hold them off by launching cannons, but when Shan-Yu summons a storm of Heartless, Sora, Donald, and Goofy rush to the front to take them out. Mulan grabs one of the cannons and, with Mushu's help, send it flying toward the mountaintop. She gets attacked by the Heartless, but Sora rescues her. The cannon reaches the mountaintop and explodes, causing an avalanche. Shan-Yu tries to escape, but gets buried in the snow.

Worlds and characters[edit]

Story changes[edit]

  • Sora, Donald, and Goofy discover Mulan's true identity when she gets undressed, rather than Goofy deducing it when they first meet.
  • Sora, Donald, and Goofy do not recognize Mushu, as he wasn't included in the manga adaptions of Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories.
  • The army finds the village burned down when they first arrive, rather than it getting attacked when Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Mulan explore the nearby cave.
