Here are two popular dragon characters from animated movies, which are as different as chalk and cheese.

Mushu (Mulan): This dragon is unlike a dragon in size; a lot smaller than you would imagine a dragon to be, but nevertheless, Mushu, Mulan’s protector and closest companion, is a true hero with a big heart. Not very often can you find a dragon who has good intentions plus a great comic sense. Voiced by Eddie Murphy, Mushu is a guardian spirit in his own right. Oh, and he might not look ferocious, but he does have a fire breath.

Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty): In stark contrast to the amiable Mushu, Maleficent is one of the most powerful villains in the history of Disney. This dragon is the epitome of evilness. She’s vindictive, arrogant, extremely powerful and menacing. Her popular dialogue says it all: ‘You poor simple fools, thinking you could defeat me. ME?! The mistress of all evil?’
