* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Carter is generally loud, rude, and almost gleefully engages in UncleTomfoolery. He's also a competent investigator and ''insanely'' fast on the draw. He even defeats two accomplished martial artists who gave Lee trouble in ''2'' and ''3''.

* TheManBehindTheMan: Discussed in the second movie as a theory Carter calls "Follow the rich white man," which is that "Behind every crime is a rich white man waiting for his cut." He turns out to be [[spoiler:right]] (at least in this particular instance).

* DisneyVillainDeath: Happens to all three of the main villains in the series, though usually with a bit more proof they didn't survive the impact than at Disney. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] during the blooper reel of ''2''.
-->'''Chris Tucker''': Damn! He ain't gonna be in ''Rush Hour 3''!

* 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 ''Rush Hour'' got made without legal complications is that almost no one knows it exists. Fans of ''Rush Hour'' and action films in general should definitely check it out, but ''only'' the Director's Cut. [[ExecutiveMeddling Long story]].

* TWordEuphemism: Played with in ''Rush Hour 3''. Carter and Lee are interrogating a man who speaks only French, so they enlist a nun, who's fluent in French, to translate. So, naturally, when she translates the prisoner's taunts, she summarizes with, "He used the N-word." For the rest of the scene, Carter and Lee ask her to translate things like, "tell this piece of S-word that I'll personally F-word him up", complete with brief stops to determine the spelling of some of the words. Lee eventually loses patience and [[HypocriticalHumor hypocritically]] tells the nun "Just call him asshole!"
