* EasilyForgiven: Jackie seems rather forgiving of the gangmembers despite them attempting to murder him repeatedly, coming close a few times.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: A few times. Jackie fighting the gangsters after they stole some candy and some drinks leads to DisproportionateRetribution, him becoming friendly with the gang-leader's girlfriend leads to even more for both him and his boss. Finally, when he tries to ''help'' the gang, he does the most damage, leading the diamond thieves to them.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Delivered to Jackie in the alleyway.

** One of the diamond thieves isn't fazed by Jackie hitting him, or even getting whacked in the face with a football helmet. Then Jackie gets a giant pipe wrench, and he falls to his knees weeping.

* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Facing down a GiantMook Jackie progresses to using different weapons against the guy, eventually getting up to smacking him around with a football helmet and hardly fazing him. Humorously, the guy backs down when Jackie is given a giant ''monkey wrench''.

* ShamingTheMob: Jackie does this to the gang. This, in combination with the murder of one of their members (see GoryDiscretionShot) by the criminal group, prompts a HeelFaceTurn by the gang's leader.
* ShipperOnDeck: Danny for Jackie and Nancy.
* SwitchToEnglish: Jackie comes to America and meets up with his uncle. The two speak in Chinese for a while but his uncle soon asks, "How's your English?". Jackie mentions that his English is passable so his uncle insists they speak it from that point on. The rest of the film is in English (though clearly dubbed, even with the people who were speaking English on set).
* TokenEvilTeammate: The gang that harasses Jackie are all brutal thugs. Angelo, however, stands out from the rest of them. His antics cause his gang to laugh at him when he receives comeuppance but two of the gang die due to his actions.

''Rumble in the Bronx'' is a 1996 film starring JackieChan and developed specifically as an attempt for him to break into the Western film market, after some failed attempts in the past (which tried to mimic [[Creator/SylvesterStallone Stallone]] or [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger Schwarzenegger]] type serious action films, this film is unabashedly Jackie Chan style). Considering it opened at #1 at the box office, Chan succeeded beautifully and joined the Hollywood mainstream.
