Surf Ninjas is a family film with martial arts starring Ernie Reyes Jr., Rob Schneider, Nicolas Cowan, and LeslieNielsen. It's...[[SoBadItsGood not terrible by any means, though it's not all that great either]], though it's hard to say whether, like ''TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', the SoBadItsGood-ness was on purpose.

* ProductPlacement: Adam uses a Game Gear to predict the future and control people. And he does this by playing a game called "Surf Ninjas". That's right, he predicts the future by [[BreakingTheFourthWall playing the video game adaptation of the movie he's a character in]]. (And there really was a "Surf Ninjas" game for the Game Gear.)
** To be fair, while the GameGear plays it straight, Adam says he thought he was playing Shinobi when the Surf Ninjas game boots up, so he had no way of knowing in-universe what would happen.

* RuleOfFunny: In the restaurant fight, Adam is 'playing' the fight on his game gear, and selecting how things will go. When the time comes to choose weapons to fight off ninjas, he selects the funniest ones, and gets more points for it.

* NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight: Colonel Chi {{invokes}} this after Johnny cuts off his gun-containing cybernetic arm, saying that now that because Johnny still has his sword but he doesn't have his gun, it's no longer a fair fight. Amazingly enough, in what can only be a strange combination of GenreSavvy and HonorBeforeReason, Johnny actually agrees to go along with this, and puts away his sword. The two of them finish the battle unarmed, allowing for a resolution that [[BloodlessCarnage doesn't involve someone's skin getting punctured]].

* NeverBringAGunToAKnifeFight: Colonel Chi has a gun built into his cybernetic arm. Needless to say, it proves ineffective against a sword-wielding Johnny, who [[ImplausibleFencingPowers parries several bullets]] and then cuts the arm off.
