* FollowTheLeader: Pretty much all {{Fighting Game}}s and movies involving a fighting tournament owe at least something to ''Enter the Dragon''.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: The FinalBattle is a sign that this film was made in China. In chinese culture ''white'' is associated with death and ''black'' is associated with life. In the FinalBattle, Han's mooks all wear white (the grey security guards are few in number) and all of the prisoners, who storm the gates after their release, fighting them wear black.

* FauxActionGirl:
** Mei Ling is a ReverseMole in Han's island, is a special agent, and can shoot a dart into a thrown apple. Despite this, she doesn't fight anyone. However, it was her idea to release the imprisoned martial artists.
** Also Lee's sister Su Lin. At first she seems quite capable in her flashback, plowing through her pursuers. But as soon as she's confronted by O'Hara, she inexplicably kills herself without even attempting to fight him.

* BondVillainStupidity: Han actually captures Lee at one point, after Lee has wiped out dozens of guards and has made his intentions to sabotage Han's operation all too clear. But unlike how he handled Williams, Han doesn't kill Lee. Instead, he lets him go to keep participating in the tournament because...reasons?
