* UncleTomfoolery: There are three black characters in the film; two of them are fighters, one who's little more than a sneering "gangsta" archetype whom Frank defeats in ''[[IHitYouYouHitTheGround one hit]]'', the other practicing some kind of ''monkey-inspired'' "martial art" that involves lots of {{Unnecessary Combat Roll}}s, swinging from trees, and splitting coconuts instead of bricks. The third is Creator/ForestWhitaker, playing the "[[GoodCopBadCop good cop]]" trying to drag Frank back to the US before he can get himself killed in the Kumite when he's not snarking about Chinese food or making pratfalls.

** Janice even lampshaded it to Jackson that Frank doing that to Chong Li was worse than just defeating him.

* CruelMercy: Rather than kill him, Frank makes Chong Li say Matte. No fighter before Dux was able to beat him, but making him pretty much say uncle was especially humiliating. Frank was even prepared to snap his neck for refusing.

'''''Bloodsport''''' is a 1988 martial arts action film starring Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme. The inspiration comes from martial artist Frank Dux, who [[BasedOnAGreatBigLie claims]] to have entered a secret and deadly martial arts tournament in the Philippines called the Kumite. Dux's story is widely suspected of being a hoax, as no part of it has ever been confirmed, and some claims are outright impossible.

* ActorAllusion: Bolo Yeung is readily identified as an opponent of BruceLee in ''Film/EnterTheDragon'', here as the BigBad many of his lines come almost directly from that movie. [[ShoutOut "Impressive, but brick not hit back."]]



* OldShame: Why yes, "Bumbling Government Agent #2" is Oscar-winner Creator/ForestWhitaker.



* TechnologyMarchesOn: Time was not kind to you, ''KarateChamp''.
