“I only steal because my dear old family needs the money to live!”
Locke Lamora made this proclamation with his wine glass held high; he and the other Gentleman Bastards were seated at the old witchwood table… . The others began to jeer.
"Liar!" they chorused
"I only steal because this wicked world won’t let me work an honest trade!" Calo cried, hoisting his own glass.
"I only steal," said Jean, "because I’ve temporarily fallen in with bad company."
At last the ritual came to Bug; the boy raised his glass a bit shakily and yelled, “I only steal because it’s heaps of fucking fun!”
― Scott Lynch, The Lies of Locke Lamora

- She runs into a scary yakuza guy and finds out her mother was an ex-magical girl, the yakuza was her mascot.
- Her love interest gets kidnapped by demons that look like burly men with cute squirrel heads.
- She contracts the yakuza to become a magical girl, which in this story means she turns into a handsome guy in a magical girl outfit.
- Her magical staff does jack shit and she literally beats the enemies to death with it.
- Her love interest shows an attraction towards her magical guy form.
- Her best friend (her love interest’s sister) turns out to be in love with her and later also becomes a magical crossdressing guy to save her life.
- Their manager is a magical girl geek and decides to make them into an idol unit.
During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.
The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.
