* AllThereInTheScript: Daniel and his mother moved to California as a result of her new job with Rocket Computers ("Flight to the future!"). The original script reveals why Freddy had "never heard of it" and also sheds some light on why it seems that Mrs. LaRusso might be an employee of the restaurant across from the Cobra Kai dojo. As she shares with Daniel:

** The Tea Ceremony. When Yukie and Miyagi did that, Miyagi showed up next scene [[GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex sweating and wearing a wife beater shirt.]] Since Kumiko and Daniel were doing the same ceremony, it's pretty obvious what she wanted with him....until hurricane cockblock showed up.

-->"They went bankrupt!...[But] listen to this. I walk out of Rocket with the beginning of Excedrin headache one through ten about to come on, and I'm going back to the car when this woman comes flying out of this restaurant, The Orient Express, and she's screaming, 'I quit! I quit!' Right behind her is this guy and he's yelling just as loud, 'You can't quit! You're fired!' It's one minute to noon, people are coming in to lunch, I'm the first but only applicant - I got the job!"
** When Daniel questions her new position as a waitress, his mother clarifies that she is not a waitress. She is a hostess.

A series of five films beginning in 1984. Following a similar pattern to the first ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' movie (and featuring the same director) it focused on a student-master relationship between Daniel Larusso and Mr. Miyagi, whose name came [[PersonAsVerb to be slang]] for a type of RetiredBadass. The first three films starred Ralph Macchio as Daniel and Pat Morita as Miyagi. Creator/HilarySwank played a new "Karate Kid" in the fourth movie, and Jaden Smith (son of Creator/WillSmith) and JackieChan starred in a 2010 reboot.

* OrderedToCheat: The former TropeNamer, back when OrderedToCheat was called SweepTheLeg. Kreese first orders Bobby Brown to take out Daniel's knee, then orders Johnny to directly attack the previously injured knee. Neither boy wants to follow the order, but they both comply.

** Snake's fouls on Danny in the final showdown were so blatant and close together, even the most lenient ref would've disqualified him halfway through the match.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Lampshaded in the director's commentary:
--> "How come they're ''all'' blond?"[[note]] Probably to contrast dark haired Daniel.[[/note]]

Many people have noticed that Creator/DCComics is credited in the films, but contrary to popular belief, the films are not directly based on a comic book. Columbia Pictures obtained permission from DC (as a professional courtesy) to use the title "the Karate Kid" because the name was already in use for a character in DC's ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'' comic, but the films draw no inspiration from the character.
