** Peter is this to the Mysterious Warrior from Double Dragon II: The Revenge. He does not have supernatural powers or dresses like him for that matter, but he uses darkness to his advantage as this video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTvdu1VpQUg demonstrates]].
** The film as a whole is a more accurate depiction of the DoubleDragon video game.

* ShoutOut: See expy for more. It seems the people working on this film were closet fans of the Double Dragon games. Considering this movie came out in 1991, Double Dragon was still popular at the time and arcade machines were commonly found in movie theaters and arcades.

Released in 1991 and starring Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme, ''Double Impact'' is often said to be a [[SpiritualAdaptation better]] ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'' movie than the actual [[Film/DoubleDragon live-action]] adaption.



Those 25 years later Chad (Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme) and Frank run a successful martial arts business, and Frank reveals he has a twin brother. Alex (Van Damme) turns out to be a streetwise punk in the Hong Kong criminal world. When finally meeting Alex, they get off on a rocky start. But there is no time for them to bicker as they have to fight Zhang and Griffith gang to get their revenge and claim the tunnel as theirs. ''Double Impact'' is often said to be a [[SpiritualAdaptation better]] ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'' movie than the actual [[Film/DoubleDragon live-action]] adaption.
