Enemies- Her main enemy is Shan Yu, the leader of the Hun, which is the group of people she's fighting against.

11: The Road Back | Even when Shang tells Mulan to stay out of the way, she doesn't listen and still goes to save the Emperor and of course China.
12: Resurrection | Mulan faces the Huns with the help of Ling, Chien-Po, Yao, and Shang. With their help, she defeats the Huns and saves China and the Emperor's life.
13: Return With the Elixir | The Emperor thanks Mulan for saving him and China then he bows to her and gives her Shan-Yu's sword and the Imperial crest so her family can have honor.
