    Matpat, I love your videos and I appreciate the effort you put into this series in particular. I am sure it was a massive undertaking and I got to agree with most of your findings. But I have one major problem, one that you touched on but didn't investigate further. I believe Mulan should be higher on this list based on historical evidence. Yes, I know the Huns never actually invaded china, they were an Eastern European/ Roman empire enemy. But the mongols did invade china. And more specifically, even before the mongols, the great wall was built to keep out raiders from the Mongolian Xiongnu Empire, an empire of mostly nomadic steppe tribes much like the mongols, but centuries before Ghengis Khan's rise to power. The Xiongnu are largely forgotten by history because everyone just thinks nomads-from Mongolia/central asia/southern russia-fought with china automatically equals Mongols; but this simply isn't true. Numerous nomadic tribes fought countless wars against china, and china built the great wall specifically to stop the first great steppe empire; the Xiongnu. I believe the steppe nomads (Disney called them Huns because it was shorter, and fit into a soundtrack score much easier than "Xiongnu" or even "Mongol") portrayed in Mulan are actually representations of the Xiongnu Empire, (Shanyu the main baddie is pronounced similarly to xiongnu [JonGnew/ShonYew] and he specifically states that "your emperor built this wall to challenge my strength" and the great wall was built to stop the Xiongnu) the youtube channel Kings and Generals has a great video about the Chinese/Xiongnu war that goes into greater detail, and based on their research, it sounds like this war was ancient Asia's World War 1, and likely has a much higher body count than you give it credit for in your analysis of Mulan. Please take a look at Kings and Generals and consider reevaluating Mulan. I agree that it still won't be the highest death count, but I think it will be higher than Hercules or Atlantis. Thanks and keep up the great work!
