* BlackComedy: When Empty Hand is finally put on a stretcher, the other guys give a speech and send him off like it was BruceLee's funeral. It's not {{too soon}}, is it?

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Look carefully at Empty Hand's hair when the first BattleAura happens - it turns from the messy bum do to the BruceLee moptop.

** Empty Hand, Team Shaolin's goalkeeper, is a very obvious one to BruceLee, right down to the yellow jumpsuit. What makes it funny is that originally he was the choreographer brought in for the dance sequence.

* CoolShades: PlayedForLaughs. Apparently the five brothers thought getting back in the game must involve this trope.

** Played straight when Empty Hand is taken off the field on a stretcher and puts them on, the others salute him. It's actually a pretty cool moment.

* DragonsUpTheYinYang: Mui traces a ''taijitu'' while making buns. This serves to set her apart as a [[{{UsefulNotes/Taoism}} Taoist]] Tai Chi practitioner, as opposed to the [[{{Buddhism}} Buddhist]] Shaolin monks[[note]]Historically, Buddhism and Taoism are rivals, being partly-incompatible religions. In Literature/JourneyToTheWest, for example, the heroes take a leak in the Taoist holy water fonts[[/note]]. She also speaks [[UsefulNotes/ChineseLanguage Mandarin]], unlike the other characters, who speak [[UsefulNotes/ChineseDialectsAndAccents Cantonese]]. The whole thing is to pay tribute to all of China's religious and martial-arts traditions.

** During the China Cup, [[spoiler: almost half of Team Shaolin abandons Sing after tasting brutal defeat from Team Evil. Ironically, those same people were the ones that [[DefeatEqualsFriendship joined after being defeated]], [[WhatTheHellHero heavily implying that they only joined to mooch off the victories]].]]

* RuleOfThree: The gag about Little Brother's eggs - Fung's demonstrating how Sing can't control his mighty legs by making him juggle and egg on his feet, which ends up smashing an egg and making Little Brother chew the yolk off his already beat-up shoes. The second time, the egg smashes ''on his pants'', forcing Sing to act fast and hurl another egg into Iron Vest's mouth, leading to Little Brother essentially ''Frenching'' him. Finally, Sing just about masters egg-juggling but inadvertently smashes it while trying to catch it. Cue Little Brother's reaction, Sing throwing ''another'' egg into Iron Vest's mouth, and the guys watch the action again. One of 'em's ''taking pictures!''

* ShapingYourAttacks: During the match against Team Evil, Sing's kick is so hard that the ball catches fire and turns into a flaming tiger. Unfortunately, this proves to be useless, as Team Evil's goalkeeper stops the ball effortlessly.
