** Case watches Russian news as the two boys run into her house. The real treat is that the text is read by a real Russian and not in what passes for the language in Hollywood.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: The dead Mook as detailed in WhatMeasureIsAMook below.

Feeling a sense of accomplishment for the first time in their lives, they set out as vigilantes to track down the criminal underworld, with their particular angle being that they are acting as rival criminals. Britt uses the resources of his fathers paper and the intelligence of his secretary, Lenore Case, to unknowingly further their mission. This catches the attention of the underground kingpin [[BigBad Chudnofsky]], who wants them dead.

** One of Kato's sketches is of BruceLee, Jay Chou's predecessor of the role. Jay Chou even replicates Bruce Lee's best known moves, like the one-inch punch and pushing side kick. The entire subplot of Kato being annoyed at being treated as Britt's sidekick is that basically before Bruce Lee had the role, Kato was literally just the Hornet's driver.

** Kato says he's from Shanghai to which Britt responds [[YouFailGeographyForever "I love Japan."]] On the surface it seems like he's an idiot, but it's actually a shout out to two things. Kato's original actor BruceLee being chinese, while playing a character who is of Japanese ethnicity.

** Kato's sketchbook even contains a portrait of BruceLee and another of his drawings looks suspiciously like Batwoman.
* StealthPun: Kato's had it up to here with being referred to as the ''sidekick'' - and yet which of BruceLee's trademark moves does he replicate at least once?

* SureLetsGoWithThat: A version that's non-verbal for one side. Bloodnofsky wears a gas mask to look scary. [[spoiler:When Green Hornet surprises him with knock-out gas, he proclaims himself ungassable as if he had worn the mask for that reason all along.]]

* JustForFun/TropesExaminedByTheMythBusters: They devoted an entire episode to this movie, mostly busting the stunts they tested.
** There wasn't enough explosives in the missiles to move the bulldozer, in the buried alive scenario. Enough explosives to move the bulldozer would have emulsified anyone in the car.
** Even after thoroughly perforating a car with bullets, an elevator wouldn't chop it in two, especially since elevators have safety features that would prevent the elevator from moving when the doors can't close.
** A front wheel drive car ''is'' still drivable with the rear end cut off, provided that you have an alternate fuel tank to replace the one that got cut away.
*** Or, [[ForeShadowing as seen earlier in the movie]], just have the MAIN gas tank up there; at the gas station, the hornet logo in the front of the grill is popped open to reveal the gas cap.

* LogicalWeakness: The Black Beauty's hood machine guns are fixed in place. During the final chase, [[strike:Chudnofsky]] '''BLOODNOFSKY''' attempts to take advantage of this by telling his men to drive to the side of the Beauty so they can't get shot. Subverted when Britt and Kato simply shoot them with the machine guns in the suicide doors, which ''can'' shoot to the side.



* MetallicarSyndrome: Subverted in the 2011 film, where the car ''should'' be conspicuous, but turns out at the end to have camouflage technology that lets it hide from a police pursuit.

* ZeerustCanon: That a single newspaper has Franchise/{{Batman}} levels of wealth is rather unbelivable in 2011. But it is part of the backstory.

* FollowTheLeader: Perhaps at least some of the schedule problems stem from another big-budget summer 2010 comic book movie about [[Film/IronMan a debauched bachelor-turned-superhero with a leggy secretary and a non-white best friend/sidekick]].
