Chapter 21: Beneath the Snow is the twenty-first chapter in the Kingdom Hearts II manga.


Sora and the others dig themselves out of the snow to find the enemy completely wiped out. As the army celebrates, they notice Mulan got hurt, and Li Shang prepares to take a look at the injury. Mushu looks forward to regaining his job as family guardian, when Mulan's true identity is revealed. The Emperor's Adviser tells Li Shang to execute her, but he refuses as repayment for saving his life. As the army leaves, Sora, Donald, Goofy, Mulan, and Mushu remain behind. Elsewhere on the mountain, Shan-Yu emerges from the snow and summons the Storm Rider, riding it towards the royal palace. Sora and the other spot him, and rush to the city to warn the people there.

In the palace, The Emperor praises Li Shang for his success. Suddenly, they hear a commotion and a man in a black coat walks in. Li Shang tries to stop him, but gets shoved aside. The man approaches the Emperor and warns him about the Storm Rider. When Shan-Yu arrives at the city, he finds it deserted, and the army fires cannons at the Storm Rider. Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Mulan arrive at the city on Mulan's horse, when they pass the man in the black coat, causing Sora to believe Organization XIII was behind the attack. However, when they get to Li Shang, he gives Sora a paopu fruit, saying the man in the black coat told him to give that to Sora, and Sora concludes the man in the black coat must be Riku.

Worlds and characters[edit]

Story changes[edit]

  • Mulan's true identity is discovered when Li Shang checks her for injuries, rather than Mushu accidentally using Mulan's real name.
  • Shan-Yu summons the Storm Rider and rides it, instead of the Storm Rider emerging from the mountain by itself.
  • Sora passes the man in the black coat upon arriving at the city, and deduces it is Riku when he gets the paopu fruit, instead of fighting him on the mountain, and deducing it based on his Soul Eater.
