The Great Stone Dragon is a stone dragon located outside the Fa family household. It makes a minor appearance in Mulan.
Role in the film
After Fa Mulan runs away from home to serve in her elderly father Fa Zhou's place in a war against the deadly Hun army, the spirits of the ancestors choose to send the Great Stone Dragon to simply bring her back home safely. For the task of awakening him, they send Mushu, who is offended when he is not asked to find her himself (in the past, his actions in protecting the Fa family led to disaster). After several unsuccessful attempts at waking the Dragon, he slams the gong on the dragon's right ear until it breaks off, causing the rest of the statue to fall apart, much to his horror. Fearing the ancestors' wrath, Mushu uses the statue's mostly intact head to imitate the being and cover up his mistake. The ruse works, and the head ancestor tells the "dragon" to go and fetch Mulan.
- In Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, one of Mulan's (actually Mushu's) quests was to repair the Great Stone Dragon.
- It's possible the Great Stone Dragon didn't want to be a guardian and replaced himself with a statue replica of himself since he never woke up and his spirit didn't rise up when Mushu accidentally smashed his statue.
- Another possibility is that the spirit of the Great Stone Dragon had been awakened by Mulan making her decision to take her father's place as she was sitting in front of statue when making the decision and his spirit was inside of Mulan the whole time leaving the statue as an empty husk.
