* TheChewToy: Sing. He gets beaten up by a string of [[BadassBystander Badass Bystanders]] and, in one scene, accidentally takes ''three knives'' in the shoulders. His status gets deconstructed towards the finale, however.

* BigLittleMan: The cowardly hero is facing down a hostile crowd, and looking for an easily beatable opponent to prove his nonexistent skills against. He calls out a runty-looking fellow who, it turns out, was sitting down!

** In the first attack on Pig Sty Alley, there are three Big Damn Heroes moments, one from each of the Three Heroes. The first is easily the most impressive, involving a lighter being caught by a coolie in a scene that would make the ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' crew green with envy, and the hero facing off against something on the order of a hundred gangsters. The others are less impressive, but only by comparison, involving a gay tailor sending a man through and beating the crap out of the gangsters swarming the first man, and a congee-making baker taking on three men armed with Thompson machine guns with a pair of blunt sticks meant to roll out dough. Ain't they just Three Big Damn Heroes?

** The Landlord getting hurled out of a window and smashing through awnings on the way down shouts out to a similar (and nearly fatal) movie by JackieChan in ''Project A''. Of special note is the Landlord's actor, Yuen Wah, who was Jackie's fellow disciple.

* NeverMessWithGranny: The Landlady, who just so happens to be made of awesome, as she's a master of Lama Pai [[MakesMeWannaShout Lion's Roar technique]]. She's strong enough to crack the top of a funeral bell and hold it to ''use it as a megaphone''. Her actress, Yuen Qiu, really does have martial art skills, shown in her small role in ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun''.

1930s UsefulNotes/{{Shanghai}} is in the grip of various gangs struggling for power, with the Axe Gang being foremost. Main character Sing is an ineffectual small-time crook trying to join the Axe Gang. In doing so, he and buddy Bone attempt to command respect from the Pig Sty Alley. Their bumbling attracts the real gang, who are repelled by the martially-skilled Coolie, Tailor and You-Tiao (fried dough sticks) baker. What results is an EscalatingWar between the Axe Gang and the ([[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass unusually strong]]) residents of the impoverished Pig Sty Alley.
