"It's all right, Sora. I'll find a way to show him what I'm made of. Just give me a chance."
—Fa Mulan

Fa Mulan is a young woman from The Land of Dragons who is a party member in Kingdom Hearts II. Determined to bring honor to her family, particularly her ill father, Mulan cuts her hair, steals her father's armor and impersonates a soldier named Ping to join the army to defeat Shan-Yu. Mulan is a generally weak fighter to begin with as Ping, but eventually becomes a skilled warrior.


Kingdom Hearts II[edit]

Sora, Donald, and Goofy meet Mulan as "Ping" outside the army's camp with Mushu. Sora and Donald are shocked when Goofy reveals to them that she is actually a girl, but promise to keep her identity a secret.

This information is based on alternate scenes or materials and is not considered canon within the overall plot of the series.
In the manga, Sora learns her gender after seeing her wearing a towel near a lake. What Became of the Researcher Vexen

The group join the army, where Mulan almost blows her cover after breaking up a massive brawl between Sora, Donald, and two other military recruits. Captain Li Shang has little faith in "Ping", despite the constant comments from Sora, Donald and Goofy. Mulan slowly impresses Shang, defeating Shan-Yu and his Heartless single-handedly by causing an avalanche, and even saves Shang's life. However, Mushu accidentally gives away Mulan's identity. Shang, outraged of her deceit, banishes her and the others from the army before leaving. Mulan and the others see Shan-Yu and several surviving Heartless emerge from the mountain and make their way to the Imperial City. Mulan fails to convince Shang to believe her, but she soon gets his trust again when the Emperor is kidnapped. Mulan, Sora and the others battle and kill Shan-Yu, Mulan being thanked personally by the Emperor who bows respectfully. Shan-Yu's sword then suddenly glows and gives Sora access to another world.

Mulan is reunited with Sora during his second visit to her world. Mulan is hunting a cloaked man who she believes is an enemy spy, but Sora knows it is a member of Organization XIII. Following the cloaked man to the mountains, they see a Heartless Dragon called the Storm Rider head for the Imperial City. They head there where they find the cloaked man (there are actually two, one being Riku) who reveals himself to be Xigbar. Mulan and the others battle the Storm Rider and defeat it. Mulan gives her support to Sora when he leaves to continue his journey to find Riku and Kairi. In order to thank her for her unconditional loyalty, the Emperor makes her Captain Shang's partner, with the two of them serving beside him.

Some time after Xemnas's defeat, Mulan and Shang share a romantic moment in the Bamboo Grove, but are interrupted by Yao, Ling and Chien Po, who were spying on them.


As Ping, Mulan dresses in her father's armor that is predominantly colored black and green. Underneath this armor, she wears a long, grey, martial arts shirt and slightly darker grey pants. She wears black shoes and knee-high, white socks.

In her normal attire, Mulan discards the armor, but retains the martial arts clothing underneath. Her shirt is shown to have green lining and is kept shut with a green sash. She also wears green wristbands. Mulan's hair is black and shoulder-length (as Ping she ties it back into a topknot with a green ribbon). Her eyes and eyebrows are black as well.


Mulan is an independent and outspoken girl who has the utmost honor and respect for her friends and family. During the first visit to the Land of Dragons, she is awkward and very insecure; however, as the story continues, she starts to gain confidence in herself. She has a strong determination as seen in her multiple attempts to make Captain Shang proud. Mulan also possesses a keen, strategic mind, coming up with the avalanche solution to wiping out Shan-Yu's army.



As Ping, Mulan does not use Mushu's magic, is much weaker, and also tends to trip in combat. She attacks and moves very slowly and only uses her sword. At this point, she only has access to a portion of her support abilities, namely Draw, Item Boost, and later Hyper Healing.

As Ping, Mulan starts with 40 HP and 100 MP. She has 1 armor slot, 1 accessory slot and 3 item slots, two of which start equipped with Potions and the other with an Ether. She can gain an additional 15, 20, and 25 HP by clearing the Village Cave trap, defeating Shan-Yu, and defeating the Storm Rider respectively.

Inspired by the legendary Chinese warrior Hua Mulan from the Ballad of Mulan, Mulan debuted in Disney's 1998 film Mulan. The sole child of war veteran Fa Zhou, Mulan is prepared and forced to attend a meeting with a matchmaker to seek out a husband, which swiftly escalates into a humiliating failure. When the Huns arrive, requiring a man from every family to fight for China, Fa Zhou agrees to go, despite Mulan's protests. To protect her father, Mulan decides to enter the army in her father's place by posing as a man, stealing her father's armor and sword and running from home later that night. On her way to the army camp, she meets Mushu and he agrees to help her on her mission. Although initially struggling with her training, Mulan uses her intelligence and becomes one of the best soldiers in her unit, impressing her commander Li Shang. Along the way, she befriends three other soldiers, Yao, Ling, and Chien Po, and realizes that it will be difficult to hide her true identity as a woman.

During an ambush set by the Huns, Mulan subdues them by crushing them in an avalanche with a rocket. However, she sustains an injury from Shan-Yu, and her gender is revealed. Shang, as per the law, prepares to kill her, but as he owed her his life for saving him in the earlier battle, he spares her. After being left on a mountain summit, she spots Shan-Yu and his surviving men making their way to the city and vainly attempts to warn Shang. When Shan-Yu kidnaps the Emperor, Mulan joins Shang and her friends in rescuing the Emperor. At the film's climactic battle, Mulan defeats Shan-Yu through the use of fireworks. Later, she is confronted by the Emperor for her various crimes (having heard of them from his advisor), but is also praised for her heroics. In gratitude for her success for saving China, the Emperor bows to her in respect and offers Mulan a council position then a job as consul, both of which Mulan refuses. Instead, the Emperor rewards with his personal crest and Shan-Yu's sword. She returns home and reunites with her worrying father, as well as Shang, who followed her to begin their romantic relationship.
