Mulan

Other mistake: When Crickie is typing the letter for Mushu he has ink on his feet yet when he jumps on the table to wipe off his feet there aren't any ink footprints where his foot was.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: When the matchmaker grabs Mulan's hand her palm is shown to be covered in ink. She then unwittingly paints herself a goatee. However, immediately after this she grabs the teapot's handle but no ink rubs off onto it. The ink miraculously disappears from her palm as well.

Continuity mistake: After finding out that Mulan left, the father picks up the comb and it is facing in a different direction from before.

Continuity mistake: In the avalanche scene the guys use a bow and arrow to save Mulan, the rope changes lengths from when they throw it to when they are pulling them up.

Disney-Freak

Other mistake: In the scene where Mulan ties up her hair after she has already cut it, she just wraps the ribbon around her hair and pulls. The way she did it would make her hair fall out.

Continuity mistake: The wagon, which is full of explosives, is on fire, so Mulan cuts Kahn (the horse) free with her sword and jumps onto Khan. She starts to ride away, while she holds the reins in her left hand and the sword with her right hand, up in the air. The wagon explodes and in the next shot, she still holds the reins in her left hand, though the sword, still in midair in her right hand, is now actually in its sheath, which is always attached to the left side of her belt. Some arrows are missing on the ground as well. (00:53:45)

Deliberate mistake: During the movie, when Mulan is just a girl, you can see that her eyelashes extend beyond her eyes. When she is pretending to be a boy, her eyelashes are short (this makes perfect sense). But when she is in the medical tent her eyelashes are long even though she had no time to put on makeup. This is deliberate though, because without it she would have still looked like a boy, and just pulling her hair down wouldn't make her look any different (since that's how she looked in the pond). So they had to change her eyelashes to make her look more girlish.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie when Fa Zhou gets the conscription notice, look how big it is. Over the course of the film, it changes size several times.

Mark Petty

Continuity mistake: In the final battle scene, Mulan has her ribbon around the wire to begin sliding down, but then decides against it. The next shot of her running toward a fallen knight, there is no ribbon visible. Also, the giant sword mark that was left after she cut down the wire has vanished.

Continuity mistake: When Chien-Po causes everyone to fall down, rice flies out of the bowls of the people who were waiting in line for food, though their bowls were empty.

Continuity mistake: When Mushu is holding the Great Stone Dragon's stone head it looks different than when the statue was whole.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mulan takes off her makeup, she brings her arm up and wipes it off but she doesn't really ever touch her ears yet they suddenly don't have any makeup on them.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: When all the ladies are helping to prepare Mulan for the matchmaker, one of them pushes Mulan into the bath. She drops water on top of Mulan's head and magically has shampoo in her hands before she applies it.

Continuity mistake: After Mulan is done singing "Reflection" she sits down on a bench and suddenly her lips are darker than in the shot when she takes off the lipstick.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: When Yao slides down the post, he scrapes off some of the wood with his teeth. In all the following shots, the post is intact again.

Continuity mistake: When the girls are dressing Mulan they tie a cloth around her waist, and when they pull the knot it's first in front then when it is fully pulled it's in the back.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: When Mulan embraces her father at the end, the flower petals on the ground have changed position from before.

Continuity mistake: When Mulan returns home after embarrassing herself and the MatchMaker, Mulan wipes the makeup from her face but none is seen on her sleeve.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mulan is fighting over the cup of tea with the matchmaker, she falls backward and her scarf falls off, yet when the table breaks it's nowhere to be seen.

Disney-Freak

Other mistake: During the song "A Girl Worth Fighting For", Yao has made several excellent snowmen of women. But the army was marching by, and he wouldn't have had nearly enough time to make them.

Continuity mistake: When the soldiers arrive at the city that has been destroyed by the Huns, there are no footprints except for those of the soldiers. But there should be thousands of them left from the Huns ,army, and villagers who battled there. (And this was not because it snowed and covered the prints up. If it had snowed the buildings would be white.)

Continuity mistake: When Shang is talking to Mulan and is asking her name, there is a shot of Mulan and suddenly Shang comes into frame and says "What's your name." There isn't a gold string that's attaching his sword to him. It's also gone in other shots in this scene.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: When Shan Yu is laughing on the rooftop, there is a shot of the terror-struck crowd. In this shot the dragon the Hun soldiers are hiding under is facing to the left. When they burst out of it, it is facing straight in front of them.

Continuity mistake: When Mulan has the cricket cage under her dress the amount of cloth that covers the top portion of it changes throughout the whole time it's back there.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: When Mulan is in with the matchmaker, she starts to pour the tea and spills a bunch of it on the table. A few seconds later she climbs on top of the table to take the tea with the cricket away from the matchmaker. She crawls right onto the tea on the table but has no wet marks or anything on her and the tea is no longer there.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mulan throws the tea onto the matchmaker, the matchmaker only has a little bit of blush on that is really light, but then when she has a close up to her face, there is a lot of blush on her cheeks and it is a much brighter pink. This has nothing to do with her being mad because only the blush changes not her whole face color.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: Mulan throws tea over the Matchmaker to extinguish the fire, but the tea only hits her face, not her backside where the fire is. Nonetheless, the fire is suddenly gone afterwards.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Mulan pulls down her sleeve to hide her "Notes" on her arm from her father, she obviously has 3/4 length sleeves, but when she runs down the steps both of her sleeves are down to her wrists.

Disney-Freak

Factual error: During the morning training session, Shang shot an arrow to the top of the pole so his soldiers can get it, but the arrow is stuck in a horizontal position. A difficult position to achieve, for someone shooting an arrow from below. Even if the arrow hit the pole at such a point in its arc, its kinetic energy would be at its weakest, preventing it from boring into the pole.

Continuity mistake: During the final battle scene, Mulan is seen on the roof of the palace, lining up a shot with the rocket. She backs up, and Shan Yu bursts through the roof, leaving a large hole. As Mulan and Shan Yu fight, the hole disappears for a few shots. But later, after Mushu fires the rocket into Shan Yu, Mulan runs off the roof, jumping over the hole, which has reappeared.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where it's raining and Mulan's mother is kneeling on the wet ground next to her husband who has fallen, Mulan's mother starts to stand up. Despite the fact that it's raining and the ground is wet, there isn't any water or wet marks on her clothing.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: When Shang is telling the troops that they will be picking up every single grain of rice his sword has disappeared.

Disney-Freak

Other mistake: When Mushu is getting Mulan ready he ties her hair up, but he never makes a knot so how could it hold her hair up?

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: When the matchmaker is fighting over the cup of tea with Mulan and Mulan loses grip, the tea splashes on the matchmaker's face and no ink on her face comes off yet when Mulan throws the tea from the tea pot on her face it all runs down her face.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: Ling's armor changes from yellow to a brown-yellow color at the festival towards the end before he puts on the dress.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: Throughout the whole time when Mulan is dressed up in the beginning she never has a knot, bow or laces that should be there given the length that was tied around her waist.

Disney-Freak

Continuity mistake: Khan, Mulan's war horse, starts out in the film as having a pink mouth on a white muzzle. The pink lips are not always drawn in, and during the rest of the film he mainly has a white mouth.

Continuity mistake: When they are singing 'A girl worth fighting for' look closely at the their chest plates. They change colour from time to time.

Continuity mistake: When Mulan is being rescued during the avalanche, they shoot an arrow and Yau grabs the arrow with the point down. The next shot, he is holding the pointed end.

Deliberate mistake: When the troops are marching towards the village which is now destroyed, they would have noticed it long before they actually do. (The makers did this on purpose so that the song "A Girl We're Fighting For" would end on a good note).

Continuity mistake: In the scene after Shang became a captain, Shang says "Soldiers" there is an underneath shot of him, and there is no gray stripe on his pants but then the stripe is back in the next shot.
