There are two female warriors, though they never speak to one another. None of the sage figures are female.

Actually, they do speak to each other.

When Tigress goes after Tai-Lung, she tells Viper not to stop her. Viper replies "We're not trying to stop you! We're coming with you!"

Passes all three.

Also they kind of talk part of the group when Po is rolling down the hill and when they make fun of him later. Talking about a male but still talking. And what the person above said...

I agree with Nightbreak. I noticed the rating was updated for kungfu panda 2 based on routine communication during a battle. This exchange here is a significant moment when the remaining members of the team have to choose between shifu and tigress, and though they are 3 males to 1 female, it is the female who speaks for them.

As mentioned above there is an exchange where Tigress is going off to fight the villain and Viper talks back.

Two named characters (check)
Talking to each other (check)
About something not a man (check)
