* 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''.

* ''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.

* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'': Surprisingly, given his well-known difficulties in speaking English, he's the voice of master Monkey! [[WTHCastingAgency He has roughly two lines in the first one but more in the second.]]
