* BlatantLies: Team Rebellion's captain has [[ImprovisedWeapon wrenches and tools]] falling out of his soccer shorts before the game begins. Each time, he delivers a protracted explanation that, as an on-call mechanic, he has a valid excuse for tools to be in his shorts.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:During the opening sequence, there's a conspicuous shot of a bat being used to attack "Golden Leg"'s Golden Leg, which is an odd thing to bring to a soccer game, even if you're planning to riot. Present Hung outright admits he bribed the "rioters" who crippled his old rival.]]

* DragonsUpTheYinYang: Mui traces a ''taijitsu'' 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.

* BadAss: The Shaolin Team after regaining their powers. Prior to Team Dragon, they are pretty much unstoppable, and the aforementioned opponent is only notable because they can get into the penalty box. They still can't score a goal.

* 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.
