* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* DeconstructedTrope: OldMaster. Master Hung is an immensely capable fighter, but his aged body will give out on him if a fight drags on longer than it should. [[spoiler:He eventually is killed in a fight with the younger, more powerful and AxCrazy boxer Twister.]]

* RealityIsUnrealistic: Many viewers complained about the supposedly "unskilled" Twister presenting such a formidable challenge to Ip when he handily defeated multiple karatekas and General Miura in the previous film. Whilst there is some grounds for this view, as boxing is a sport with rules and more limited techniques compared to other martial arts, it ''is'' a martial art, and Twister is clearly portrayed as being [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower physically built to withstand a lot of punishment]], which likely gives him a fair advantage.

[[spoiler:That being said, when Ip Man [[AttackItsWeakPoint figures out a strategy]] for fighting Twister in the very last bout, it turns into a CurbstompBattle in Ip Man's favor.]]

* 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.
