* AgonyOfTheFeet: The mayor's big toe is cut off by Betty to bring him in line, causing [[{{Squick}} blood to squirt out as he walks]]. Later on, his whole foot has been cut off.
* AluminumChristmasTrees: Some martial arts schools actually "trained" students they considered unworthy incorrectly on purpose, just like like Wimp Lo, and certain forms of Chinese martial arts do go to considerable lengths to toughen up the practitioner's skin (although not usually to the point of breaking a thermometer in their student's hands).
* AmbiguouslyGay: Betty. A feared, skilled, powerful ''male'' kung-fu master and warlord decides to go under the alias "Betty".
** Then there's this line: "Hey, you guys, wanna, I don't know, scam some chicks or something?...''[[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday I DO like the ladies you know, I do like 'em]]''."
