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 Creator/JackieChan starred in a 2010 reboot.

Many people have noticed that Creator/DCComics is credited in the films, but contrary to popular belief, the films are not directly based on any comic book. Creator/ColumbiaPictures 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.

The movies also inspired a somewhat forgettable [[WesternAnimation/TheKarateKidTheAnimatedSeries Animated Series]] involving Daniel and Mr. Miyagi traveling the world in pursuit of a magical healing shrine.

* OneSteveLimit: Johnny Lawrence and John Kreese. Name confusion is avoided because the only character who calls the latter "Johnny" doesn't enter the series before Johnny Lawrence leaves.
