* BaseBreakingCharacter: Chen Zhen become a rare in-universe example once his relationship with Mitsuko was revealed. Half the Jingwu school still supported him while the other half hated him for being in a romance with a Japanese woman and wanted him gone.

** At the Jingwu school itself, both Ting-An(the actual headmaster) and Chen Zhen(more or less a de-facto leader whom students naturally gravitate towards) are leagues ahead of the rest of the Jingu students.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: There's little in the movie to suggest that Akutegawa was a nice guy or even JerkWithAHeartOfGold but as soon as he found out he only won against Master Wu because Fujita had Wu poisoned, he was furious to learn that and accused Fujita of being dishonorable, [[spoiler: only to get killed by Fujita in return as soon as he laid hands on him]].

Set in UsefulNotes/{{Shanghai}} International Settlement in 1937 during the Second Sino-Japanese War as the city is occupied by Japanese forces, Chen Zhen (Li) is a student of Jingwu School of martial arts studying abroad in Japan at the start of the film. When he gets devastating news that the master of the school, Huo Yuanjia, has been killed back at home in a match with a Japanese martial artist, he heads back to Shangai. Seeking out and combatting the martial artist that defeated Yuanjia himself, he determines that the said martial artist could never have beaten Yuanjia on fair terms, and that therefore foul play must be at work. Sure enough, digging up Yuanjia's body, it is discovered that he was poisoned before the fight. But why? And by who? Before Zhen can find that out, however, the fighter that defeated Yuanjia turns up murdered, and he's got to contend with the authorities who suspect that he did it. He's also got to contend with Jingwu School itself, which is none too pleased when it discovers Zhen has fallen in love with a Japanese woman.
