Towards the end of the "avalanche battle" Shan Yu swings his sword and cuts Mulan across her stomach. A few minutes later, we see Mulan hurt and bleeding from the cut which is round and small compared to the arc of Shan Yu's swing.
Am I missing something? Does it make sense for the wound to be that small?
I thought that Shan Yu was possibly too far away with the horse to cut Mulan properly. But looking at the scene, it looks like he is pretty close. So close, in fact, that his swing looks far more more deadly that it actually was.
