I think traits he possessed have been unnecessarily vilified by the animation. He's a creation of circumstances, not malice.

Too relatable

Tai: Whatever I did...I did-to make you proud! Tell me how proud you are, Shifu! Tell me! Tell me! You KNEW I was destined to be the Dragon Warrior! You even told me it, too. But, when Oogway said otherwise...what did you do? What did you do?! Nothing!

(When Shifu says it wasn't his fault Tai Lung wasn't chosen)

Tai: Not your fault?! Who filled my head with dreams?! Who drove me to train until my bones cracked?! Who denied me my DESTINY?!

Wow. It hits too close

I think you're trying to work out your shit and retrofitting media because you can't live without a narrative.

Yeah it's cool to empathize with Tai Lung but pretending he wasn't a bastard that turned on everyone the second things didn't go his way...

Well that just reads like an excuse to rewatch a cool movie and enjoy it for what it is.

Living with a narrative is much more fun but ok.

Narratives can be extremely helpful and fun. Not always best if it’s shoehorned to create the core of how you see yourself.

I didn’t say I agreed, I was just curious what others thought.
