* YellowPeril: Referenced by Linda's mother when she objects to her marrying Bruce. She even refers to possible mixed-race grandchildren [[KickTheDog as "yellow babies"]] [[spoiler: Though she ultimately gives in after some time.]]

** One part implied, that Bruce was neglecting his family in favor of his movie career. Not only do many biographies claim otherwise. One of which shows pictures of the real Lee spending time with his family on the set of GameOfDeath.

** One part implied, The film implied that Bruce was neglecting his family in favor of his movie career. Not only do many biographies claim otherwise. One otherwise, to the point that Lee was famous for often inviting his family to the set while filming, but one of which shows pictures of the real Lee spending time with his family them together on the set of GameOfDeath.''GameOfDeath''.
** Neither Johnny Sun nor his brother ever existed. Sun was probably based on Wong Jack Man, a martial artist who challenged Bruce to a no holds barred match, while his brother is based on reports of extras on the set of films that challenged Bruce insisting that he was only an actor. Bruce indeed broke his back, but it was due to excessive weighlifting.
** The real Lee was proud of his Chinese background and there is no record of him ever refering to himself as an American. Also, this Bruce Lee is scared by an evil spirit, while the real one was an atheist.

* TemptingFate: "I can beat any man in this room in sixty seconds!" Bruce is about to learn a lesson that (in [[{{Kayfabe}} kayfabe]]) pro wrestlers often learn the hard way: open challenges *always* get answered, usually by the one(s) you'd least like to face. [[spoiler: Subeverted in that Bruce wins the challenge, knocking his rival clear into the audience after 58 seconds.]]

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: In-Universe. While the Green Hornet lasts only a couple of seasons, it was immensely popular in Hong Kong, many Hong Kong residents considered [[EnsembleDarkhorse Kato to be the main character]] thus it is marketed as a the ''Kato Show''.

* {{Yellowface}}: Mickey Rooney's [[Film/BreakfastAtTiffanys Mr. Yunioshi]], one of the most notorious examples, is shown. Bruce is deeply appalled by this portrayal, contrasting how he would soon change the way Asian Americans were portrayed.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: It doesn't quite get to the level of DanBrowned, but a great deal of artistic licence is taken due to RuleOfDrama:
** Bruce is depicted opening his first martial arts school out of inspiration by Linda, whereas in real life he'd opened it long before meeting her.
