Fa Zhou is a supporting character in the Disney animated feature film, Mulan. The father of the main heroine and the husband of Fa Li, Fa Zhou was originally represented as one of the men who would sign for the Chinese Imperial Army for his family honor. However, due to aging and health conditions, his daughter takes his place instead, taking his armor and disguising herself as a male soldier. Eventually, Fa Zhou embraced Mulan after her victory against Shan Yu. Fa Zhou makes two appearances in Heroes vs. Villains War; first in Mulan's flashback scene, where he was revealed that he was slain by Tyler; and second as a spirit appearing before Mulan in the Epilogue, alongside with his wife, before departing to the afterlife.
