* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It rates a 4. It's mostly bloodless martial arts mayhem, but it can still get a bit rough.

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: John. In the beginning he comes off as the brains of the henchmen, especially with his huge nerd glasses. Come the final fight though, he winds up being Fei-Hung's last opponent and likely the most dangerous of them when he reveals powerful kicking techniques.

* VirtrolicBestBuds: Ling and Marlon, they quarrel over the attention of their female friend and argue about their fighting styles, but it's clear they are protective of each other.

* AssKicksYou: Fei-Hung's interpretation of "Drunken Miss Ho" involves hip-checks to unbalance the opponent; he even tries an ass-drop attack on Yan Ti San, but Yan manages to dodge it.

* FatalFlaw: Fei-Hung is not nearly as clever as he thinks himself to be, and he is constantly slacking off from training. This goes beyond being merely BrilliantButLazy however, as he never bothers to learn the eighth form of Drunken Boxing ("Drunken Miss Ho" which he feels is too feminine to work in a fight) and he has to make up his own eighth form in the final fight to keep from getting killed.

He gets over this hangup by the second film, where he uses the form to psych opponents out.

* IAmNotLeftHanded: Yan Ti San is most likely called Thunderleg in the English dub because he relies heavily on a slower fighting style that emphasizes power over speed, punctuated with lethal kicks. In the final fight with Fei-Hung, he reveals a hitherto-unseen style; The Shadowless Hand, a punching technique so fast that the human eye can't track it.



* TheTrickster: Fei-Hung is very sneaky, one reason why he's so in enough trouble to be sent for special training.
* [[TricksterMentor Trickster Mentor]]: Beggar-So is equally sneaky, finding interesting ways to keep Fei-Hung from running away from his (often) brutal training.

* WellDoneSonGuy:
WellDoneSonGuy: Fei-Hung genuinely respects his father, despite all the trouble he's caused; After a particularly out-of-control bender where he mistakes his father for an opponent, Fei-Hung agrees to give up drunken boxing permanently. Mind you, this is somewhere roughly in the end of the second act and we've still got at least one more big fight to go, so it isn't ''that'' permanent.

!! This "sequel" provides examples of:
* FakePregnancy: [[spoiler: Seemingly Ling does this to distract the father from beating Fei-Hung and she reacts nervously whenever her husband refers to her supposed pregnancy. It turns out she really was pregnant and simply knew when to time the news to her advantage.]]
* MamaBear: Ling is relentless in protecting her stepson from his father.
* VirtrolicBestBuds: Ling and Marlon, they quarrel over the attention of their female friend and argue about their fighting styles, but it's clear they are protective of each other.

Later, there was a sequel of sorts in the form of ''Drunken Master II'', released in North America as ''Legend of Drunken Master''. Wong Fei-Hung accidentally comes into possession of several valuable Chinese artifacts, which smugglers are trying to sell to {{Evil Brit}}s. In 2005, Time Magazine declared this movie one of the 100 best movies of all time, and Creator/RogerEbert rates the climactic foundry fight as one of the best fight scenes ever committed to film.

* DuelingDubs: The first one (circa 1979) called Fei-Hung Freddie Wong, Beggar So was called Sam Seed, and Yan Ti San was called Thunderfoot. The original dub could be seen on older bootleg VHS tapes. In the 2005s remasterd DVD dub, Fei Hung and his father are still Freddie and Robert Wong. Beggar So is now called So Hei. Yan is called Thunderlegs. The original dub was a product of its time with usual cartoony voice acting, awkward dialogue, and inflections, much like all the Kung Fu dubs of the time with the unintentional hilarity. The DVD dub had both voice acting and dialogue which tended to be stilted or subdued at times in order to avoid the signature quirks of older kung fu movie dubs. Most of the humor remains in what is being said as opposed to how funny it sounds to the ear. Also, much of the translation in the DVD relsease is more literal. So-Hei has a voice that is curiously similar to Sam Seed's. Interestingly enough, Yan's original English dub sported an accent reminiscent of characters in Spaghetti Westerns. His voice in the later dub gave him a lower, more subdued, deadly sounding voice. Mr. Lee and Gorilla both had cartoony voices (similar to Piglet from Franchise/WinnieThePooh) in the original dub but were given more appropriately deeper voices in the DVD dub. However, Freddie's voice actor was definitely hamming it up in the new dub.



* ProductionPosse: Ken Lo, the man who [[TheDragon kicks the crap out of him for about a third of every Jackie Chan movie]], usually toward the end.
