* 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?

** Also, we're shown multiple times how scary O'Hara is...then he goes up against Lee, who barely breaks a sweat while wiping the floor with him

* DaddysGirl: Han trained his daughters as his personal bodyguards on the theory that no one will be more loyal to him. One of them knocked Roper clear off his feet rather than give him a handshake, and [[spoiler:another is seen dead on the courtyard stage after the fight is over]].

* DaddysLittleVillain: Han's daughters are merciless.



** [[spoiler: Williams]] is killed by Han after being set up as a major character.



* GoodWeaponEvilWeapon: Lee uses a SimpleStaff or ''nunchaku'' on occasion and [[BareFistedMonk his own style of martial arts]] the rest of the time, while Han's evilness is emphasized by his penchant for sinister-looking [[WolverineClaws claw]] [[ArtificialLimbs hands.]]

** Roper is a gambler who [[ThrowingTheFight begins to purposefully lose a fight]] in order to swindle a spectator out of money and is upfront about the fact that he [[ConMan plans to trick Lee into losing money]]. Despite this, he is still seen as charming to both the audience and the other characters. It's also apparent that he plans to double-cross Han at one point.

* NothingIsScarier: We never see what part of O'Hara's body Lee landed on, but we see how powerful the jump is--and we see the disgusted reactions of Han, Roper, and Williams reacting to it.



* {{Stripperiffic}}: Bruce Lee's pair of black speedos in the first fight.



** Bolo is knocked out just before the climax, but one would expect him to wake up during the huge brawl at the end (or at least be shown getting rounded up at the end).

** An off-screen Curb Stomp Battle happened when some dumbass intruded on Bruce Lee's family area and scared his kids. [[PapaWolf Bruce Lee sent the guy to the hospital with one kick.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Badass}}: Lee definitely.
* BadassBoast: Before the match with Lee and O'Hara, the latter breaks a wooden board with his fist. Lee was not impressed with the display.
--> Lee: "Boards don't hit back."
