** Not only averted in ''Film/SuperCop'' but the girlfriend also accidentally blew his cover. He was {{mistaken for cheating}} by his girlfriend, but she eventually realized that he's in an undercover mission. Unfortunately, when she shared this with her friend, she's [[NiceJobBreakingItHero overheard]] by TheDragon.

* ActionGirl: Most of the women in his movies tend to not be typical DistressedDamsel characters. Even if not as crazy as he is, they tend to throw a hard punch or save his butt when necessary. Although Jackie admitted to being intimidated by MichelleYeoh, worried that she might outshine him in the martial arts and stunts.

And in case you don't believe it, there's usually a montage of outtakes over the end credits showing things going wrong while filming (go to Website/YouTube and search for Jackie Chan outtakes... and prepare to be amazed!). Often involving ambulances. It's a good thing he's been so successful, because he's gone on record in many interviews as saying that ''no insurance company in the world'' will give him coverage. As he's grown older, despite being one hell of a BadassGrandpa at the [[OlderThanTheyLook age of 60]], he understandably [[http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,410040,00.html has stopped doing 100%]] of his stunts, partly because he has been told that if he falls on his head ''one more time'' it will KILL HIM, also in part because in the Hollywood system, insurance for the stars is a must and, as aforementioned, he has a little trouble with that.

* BadassGrandpa: Still up and kicking ass at the age of 60.



* DentedIron: His status as a major Determinator (see below) and all the amazing stunts coupled with the injuries that come with them, have been slowly taking a toll on his body. Although he still does his own stunts, he scaled down on some of the more spectacular displays and does whatever he attempts with much more security and safety than before. Still an amazing BadassGrandpa, but it takes a lot more effort to accomplish the things he would do casually when he was younger and he doesn't recover as quickly.

* HilariousOuttakes: A staple of many of his films, most of them are multiple takes of stunts fights that [[OhCrap just didn't go right]]. According to the man himself, this was inspired by ''CannonballRun''.

* ''Skiptrace'': Jackie tracks down a notorious crime boss to get revenge for his fallen partner and is forced to recruit an American conman in deep trouble with the Russian mafia to his cause to this end. Notable in that the conman is played by ''Johnny Knoxville''.

* ''The Big Brawl'': Features Creator/{{Mako}} as a stern instructor, with a cheeky Chan is at his mercy in one scene.
* ''Film/DragonLord'': not one of Jackie's more renown films, but nonetheless important. It stands as what is arguably the transition from Jackie's straight up Kung-Fu period pieces (like Drunken Master) and the modern stunt oriented films he would gain much of his worldwide fame from. If you spot any stunt reel of his you find online featuring Jackie falling off a massive pile of men over a tower of buns, this is the film that set piece is from.
** Also worth mentioning is that this is the first of his films that would have outtakes during the end credits after being inspired by ''Film/CannonBallRun'' as described above.

When his series/movies is dubbed in Japan, his voice is usually dubbed by Creator/HiroyaIshimaru. In LatinAmerica, he's dubbed by Juan Alfonso Carralero, who also dubs-over for Creator/WillSmith and David Hasselhoff, and in Spain, his voice is usually dubbed by Ricky Coello.

[[HeAlsoDid A lesser-known aspect of his career]] (at least in America) is that he is also a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgBcQA9A3zA professional singer]], having recorded many albums and often performing the {{Theme Song}}s for his movies (ex. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29nd5P_KqKg Who Am I?]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6IYt2qMj1A I'll Make a]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6IYt2qMj1A Man Out of You]] in Disney's ''Disney/{{Mulan}}''). This is a little less surprising when you know that he originally trained for UsefulNotes/PekingOpera, which features acrobatic fight scenes. He also has his own AnimatedAdaptation, ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures.''

In some parts of the global Asian community, he is also accused of being [[TheQuisling a sellout to his own culture, pandering to the Western market]] by repeatedly portraying caricatures of the Chinese man. Reportedly advising that the protagonist role in ''Film/TheForbiddenKingdom'', originally intended to be a Chinese-American boy rediscovering his roots, be recast as a kung-fu obsessed [[MightyWhitey white boy]] is sometimes advanced as evidence for this view. Further rubbing salt in wounds is his compliance to Sony's decision to force the ''Film/TheKarateKid2010'' remake to bear its original title, rather than the proposed ''The Kung Fu Kid'', in spite of the fact that the film is set in China and is ''about'' the Chinese martial art of Wushu (aka kung fu). The people who accuse Chan of this are probably right, in that [[BrutalHonesty Chan has admitted he does this]]. He claims he [[MoneyDearBoy does it for the money]], so that he can finance the films he actually ''likes'' to make, as well as fund his not-inconsiderable charity work.
