* HistoricalVillainupgrade: A few different places. Just to start, there was no massacre in Canton at the time or in the manner the movie portrays.

* YouLookFamiliar: Donnie Yen plays Wong Fei-Hung's father Yong Kit-Ying in the prequel ''IronMonkey''. Ironically, he also played the villain General Narlan Yuenshu all the way back in ''Once Upon A Time In China 2'', who was '''killed by''' Wong Fei Hung.

In the mean time JetLi does return to play Wong Fei Hong twice more in the embarrasing slapstick InNameOnly "sequel" ''Once Upon A Hero In China'' (which is completely seperate from the continuity of the first 3 films), before returning to the franchise proper in ''Once Upon A Time In China And America'', directed by SammoHung (who also choreographed the fight-scenes). In this film, the stage is moved to TheWildWest era San Francisco, creating a unique {{Wuxia}} meets SpaghettiWestern film.

A prequel entitled ''IronMonkey'' was released, chronicling the adventures of Wong Fei Hung as a little boy with his father Doctor Wong Kit Ying, played by Donnie Yen, who would later rise to fame playing ''IpMan.''

* CurbStompBattle: Pretty much whenever Wong Fei Hung fights. [[spoiler: Even the big final fights are one sided with the opponent usually getting only one or two hits in.]]

Followed by two more sequels starring JetLi, before a falling out between him and Tsui Hark that resulted in him being [[TheOtherDarrin replaced by 19 year old Zhao Weng Zhou]] in the next two films; Tsui and Li would not work together until they reconciled for ''FlyingSwordsOfDragonGate'' 19 years later.

* PocketProtector: The pocket watch that Sun gave Lian Quan saved his life when he was shot by a bullet in the second film. Luke lampshaded this. [[spoiler: Sadly averted in the next second where Luke got shot in an area where his own watch couldn't protect him.]]

* BerserkButton: Hurting innocents - especially his loved ones - is not something Wong will tolerate well.

* GoodIsNotSoft: Wong is a doctor who will go out of his way to help people, even showing kindness to his enemies. That doesn't mean he won't unleash a brutal beatdown on anyone who deserves it/
