* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: The Landlord of Pig's Sty is not only thrown out of a third story window, but gets a potted plant dropped on his head, actually drawing blood. He simply tells onlookers to go away when they inch closer to check up on him.

* 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''.
