* SpiritualSuccessor: To the film ''Drive'', starring Mark Dacascos, a woefully underrated (and relatively unknown) action film from TheNineties. Brett Ratner even admitted that the only reason ''RushHour'' got made without legal complications is that almost no one knows it exists. Fans of ''RushHour'' and action films in general should definitely check it out (but ''only'' the Director's Cut [[ExecutiveMeddling Long story]]).

* DoubleKnockout: It appears this happens towards the end of ''Rush Hour 2'' as Hu-Li stabs Carter through the chest and gets hit by a halberd knocking her out. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Then we find out that counterfeit money Carter kept in his pockets kept the spear from stabbing him]]]].

* InnocentlyInsensitive: Lee finds out the hard way that "What's up, [[NWordPrivileges my nigga?]]" is not a good way to break the ice in a bar full of black patrons (at least when you're not black yourself). The guys who attack Lee then find out the hard way that when a guy played by Jackie Chan makes that mistake, it's best to just let it slide.

* SpringtimeForHitler: Jackie Chan has gone on record that he didn't think Rush Hour would be as successful as it became. He did the film to test the American market.
** He also admitted to not understanding a good portion of the jokes in the films.

* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Hilariously subverted in the second movie. Towards the end, Lee has Ricky Tan at gunpoint when Carter shows up and Ricky asks Lee [[WouldYouLikeToHearHowTheyDied if he wants to learn how his father had died]]. Carter tells Lee to not lose it, but when Ricky insults his father, Carter goes "Okay, now he's gone too far. Shoot his ass, Lee!"
