* DavidVersusGoliath: IpMan versus the Twister in the second film is this very straight. TheHero may have got his badass cred down pat earlier, but the Twister is not only physically larger, he had destroyed the OldMaster who fought Ip to a draw [[spoiler: and gleefully beat him to death in cold blood]], so there is a definite underdog vibe.

Thankfully, [[http://twitchfilm.com/2012/05/donnie-yen-returning-for-ip-man-3d.html a third movie, originally to be released in 3D, is in development]], starring Creator/DonnieYen one last time as Ip Man and serving as a proper conclusion to the trilogy. It was originally due for a 2013 release but eventually released in end-December 2015. Mike Tyson co-starred, and the filmmakers announced their intention to use a [[FakeShemp CGI recreation of Bruce Lee]] as a character in the film, although a [[http://www.flickeringmyth.com/2015/04/bruce-lee-estate-suing-ip-man-3-producers-to-prevent-cgi-recreation.html lawsuit]] filed against the studio by the Lee estate soon after the announcement later put the Kibosh on that.

that (the character still shows up, but with little fanfare in his scene and not appearing exactly like the traditional depiction of Bruce Lee).

!!This film and its sequel provide examples of:

* AllLovingHero: Ip Man himself. He's forgiving, kind, and though he can kick your ass, he won't without a good reason. And he won't gloat and even though you insisted on fighting him and were thoroughly humiliated, he'll go out of his way to hide this from the populace.

%%* BewareTheNiceOnes
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: TrainingThePeacefulVillagers has been subverted, the factory workers]] are still getting their asses handed to them by the bandits - until Ip Man shows up and gives them the old what-for.



* BossRush: Jin has a villainous version in the first movie, cutting through the masters of Fo Shan before facing Master Ip.



* MartialPacifist: Ip, unless provoked, anyway.



* SoLastSeason: Beating up ten Japanese karate experts and a general is nothing compared to fighting a showy British boxer.



* WarriorPoet: Ip Man
* WarriorTherapist: Ip Man becomes this accidentally. Between the first and second films, his friend Zhou Qing Quan loses his memory after being shot in the head by the Japanese. Zhou regains his memory after listening to Ip Man's match with Twister on the radio, though his sanity was still questionable.
** Jin goes from a violent bandit to a DotingParent and HenpeckedHusband after being deafened in one ear by Ip Man.



* WhyDontYaJustShootHim: Colonel Sato ''insists'' on simply shooting Ip Man, but General Miura is [[GenreBlind having none of that]].

* WholePlotReference: Both films are ''very'' similar to ''RockyIV''. A fighter from an enemy nation shows up on the hero's home turf. The hero's rival-turned-friend gets killed in a match. The hero avenges the death in the ring without killing his opponent. ''Ip Man 2'' even ends with the beaten up hero giving a speech on peace and tolerance, getting applause from his opponent's fans.

** Ip versus Frank in the third film is also this. Any one of Frank's punches would have KOd Ip if he could hit a vital area, and he even sent Ip staggering backwards with one of his straight punches. He's also played by Creator/MikeTyson, who's a lot stockier and more menacing than Twister could ever be.

* ActorAllusion: Frank from the third movie fights Ip Man with boxing rules and pretty much fights only with his fists. Given that he's played by Mike Tyson, this is not unexpected.
