Ling is the friendly, enthusiastic friend of Yao and Chien Po whose passion is telling jokes. While seeking acknowledgment from his jokes he gains an obnoxious exterior. Like Yao, Ling can be harsh to people he does not know/like, but after spending time with the person his opinion of them increases.
Ling is of average height and is quite thin. He has a somewhat pointed face, a large nose, black eyes, and rather thick, black eyebrows. He dresses in Chinese armor during the course of the game. Ling's armor is colored predominantly in shades of grey and yellow and his helmet sports a red tassel at the top. He carries a jian with a gold guard and pommel and a black hand grip as a weapon.
Ling first shows up at the Encampment, where he and Yao argue with Sora and Donald. He pops up again at the Summit, with Yao and Chien Po, in hopes of killing Shan-Yu. After Shan-Yu attack the Palace, Ling helps protect the Emperor. After Shan-Yu's defeat, Ling spends his time walking around the Village.
Some time after Xemnas's defeat, Ling, Yao, and Chien Po spy on Mulan and Li Shang, but are discovered when they fall over.
Ling is from the original Disney movie Mulan. He appears, as in Kingdom Hearts II, with his small short-tempered friend and his rotund friend. When Mulan gets to the camp in the movie, the first people she talks to are the three friends. They become great friends, even after they figure out she's a woman.
