Top 10 Bravest Moments in Disney Animated Movies

The Top Ten

This one is obvious. When the Huns invaded China, the emperor declared that one man from every family must serve in the imperial force - and since the Fa family have no sons, her father is forced to join, but Mulan fearing that because of his health and that he will likely die, Mulan takes it upon herself to take his place in the army, risking not only her family's honor, but faces death if she is discovered to be a woman.

Bing bong didn't die, he knew he would no longer exist and he still went on to save Riley

8 Gurgi Sacrifices Himself By Jumping Into the Black Cauldron to Stop the Horned King's Dead Army - The Black Cauldron

As annoying as he was, Gurgi does end up saving the day as the witches told them the only way to stop the Black Cauldron's magic is for someone to willingly jump into the cauldron and sacrifice themselves which Gurgi willingly does to save his friends and the land.

Imagine how much cooler Gurgi would sound in a live action remake if he was instead voiced by Andy Serkis.
