* UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}}: Thomas's fighting style.



* DisabilitySuperpower: Zen is autistic... which gives her almost superhuman senses. Same for Thomas.

* DanceBattler: Not easy to call "dance" to Thomas's spastic fighting style, but he actually fights with an adapted form of UsefulNotes/{{Capoeira}}.
* DisabilitySuperpower: Zen is autistic... which gives her almost superhuman senses. Same for Thomas.Thomas, who has some sort of Tourette which makes him physically unpredictable.



* DoubleKnockout: Zen and Thomas feature one at the final moments of the fight when they both try and land a ''martelo do chao'' at once.



* InformedAbility: Thomas is credited as the "Epileptic Boxer", which is quite misguided considering he is neither a boxer nor exactly epileptic.



* KungFuProofMook: A literal example in Thomas, who proves to be a match for Zen. Even after she finds the way to land some hard strikes on her twisty antagonist, he manages to [[DoubleKnockout pull a draw]] and takes her out of action (to be fair, she was already worn due to an earlier fight against bunch of mooks).

* PowerCopying: Zen shows it (with a lot of effort, due to her opponent's body language being difficult to read) during her battle against ThomasThomas. She soon adopts some capoeira approach to match his style and manages to finish him with a ''mariposa'' kick while dodging a sweep.



* TrivialTitle: The movie is about an autistic girl beating people up to pay for her mother's chemotherapy. She also happens to like chocolate, though that doesn't affect the plot in the slightest.

A Thai woman falls in love with a Japanese gangster, but they part ways after her employers disapprove... with violence. A few months after the split, she gives birth to Zen, a girl with autism. Said autism allows Zen to master martial arts moves by watching them. She also enjoys chocolate, [[NonIndicativeTitle thus the title.]]

* ConfusionFu: Zen's most dangerous enemy is Thomas, a boy with Tourette's. His style looks like some bizarre mix of {{capoeira}} and monkey kung fu, and his tics make it almost impossible for her to read his moves.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: Zen's WaifFu moves look like they shouldn't pack that much weight... until you see the HilariousOuttakes and you see that when her blows hit the stuntmen, they do some serious damage.

* CombatParkour: Zen, a small Thai autistic girl whose DisabilitySuperpower is to absorb martial arts from movies and TV shows. The entire movie is her beating up hundreds of people larger than her with Muay Thai. The actress supposedly spent 2 years learning enough Muay Thai to make it look realistic. The film handled her smaller size well - she uses it to her advantage by taking the fight into narrow spaces where her opponents have trouble moving. She and her opponents also and Combat Parkour in places when evading kicks and bouncing around the scenes.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Zen's disorder is never named, but it's pretty clearly a form of autism. The real example is Thomas, whose disorder looks like full-body Tourette's, but that doesn't explain all his symptoms.

* DisneyAcidSequence: The film features an [[DreamBallet animated dream sequence]] which moves Zen to act.



* ImportantHaircut: Zen cuts off her beautiful long hair after she finds out her mother is going bald from chemotherapy.

She was apparently acting out because of the trauma.]]

* NonIndicativeTitle: Zen does enjoy chocolate, and it shows up in several scenes, however it's never a plot point and a very random choice for a title.
