* AwesomeByAnalysis: Kar taught himself how to fight by watching kung-fu movies and mimicking the moves shown there. The Monk spies on him "training" by doing kata with Bruce Lee footage.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainessesWantHeroes: Nina is extremely attracted to the Monk; it takes a dark turn when it's implied she rapes or otherwise sexually assaults him while scanning the scroll he has tattooed on his body.

** Kar tries to pass of the Monk as a (Chinese) Shaolin to Jade, but she immediately points out that Shaolin have to completely shave their heads. She accurately identifies him as a Tibetan Buddhist. Conversely, the Monk shows familiarity for Sikh tenets to an Indian cab driver, who expresses that he'd almost think the Monk was a Sikh himself but for not having ''enough'' hair.

* IceCreamKoan: The riddle of why hot dogs come in packs of 10 and buns in packs of 8. Gar first suggests that it's a way of saying [[DareToBeBadass you need to push yourself]].
-->The reason hot dogs come in packages of ten but hot-dog buns come in packages of just eight is so you’ll ''always'' need ''more'' buns for your hot dogs--because no matter how much you get, how much you achieve, how many times you win… You can never, ever let yourself feel like it’s enough.
** He changes his mind after [[spoiler:becoming the new Monk]], deciding it means that you can't really be happy until you accept what you can't change.
-->You just have to accept that, no matter how hard you try, you can never, ever have everything you want… So be happy with what you’ve got--‘cause you can always have a hot dog.
