* HonorBeforeReason: Ip Man himself obviously, and surprisingly enough Miura, who honors the code of the warrior even towards his Chinese enemies.
** Ip rejecting the ten bags of rice after destroying the ten black belts. While he was obviously trying to make a point, as well as avenge [[spoiler: Master Liu's]] death, you have to wonder just how many of his people Ip could've fed with all that rice.
*** Considering the fact that his wife and child were starving at the time, that moment crosses into WhatTheHellHero territory.
** In the sequel, Master Hung offers protecting the honour of Chinese martial arts as the reason why he does not back down against the Twister.

* LetsGetDangerous: Master Ip is friendly, humble, and laid back almost to the point of laziness. Insult him and he'll brush it off with a laugh. Even when forced to fight, he normally uses minimal force to stop the attack and avoids causing injuries beyond a few bruises. However, when he rolls up his sleeves, it means someone's really pissed him off and they're about to get absolutely *demolished*.

** [[spoiler: Master Hung]] in the second film too. Ip Man eventually confronts Hung about insisting that Ip pay his protection fees. During this confrontation, [[spoiler: Hung's son suddenly appears, and Ip quickly grabs him off the ground to keep Hung from accidentally kicking him. This greatly changes Hung's disposition towards Ip]]

* CurbStompBattle: Most of the fights in that the titular character is in throughout the trilogy. The film was explicitly meant to glorify him and be all nationalistic, though, plus the choreography is superb, avoiding any potential boredom. The opponents he Curb Stomps usually were Curb Stomping their opponents before he shows up, also helping to reduce the boredom and make the wins more impressive. An arguably deliberate LampshadeHanging occurs in the final fight against General Miura, where Ip Man caps off by pinning the other guy against a pole and going to town while scenes of his practice on a training dummy are interposed.

Thankfully, [[http://twitchfilm.com/2012/05/donnie-yen-returning-for-ip-man-3d.html a third movie, originally to be released in 3D]], starring Creator/DonnieYen one last time as Ip Man and serving as a proper conclusion to the trilogy, was released. It was originally due for a 2013 release but was 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 (the character still shows up, but with little fanfare in his scene and not appearing exactly like the traditional depiction of Bruce Lee).
