** Terry himself starts the film by being set up as a VillainProtagonist SpearCounterpart to BruceLee from ''Film/EnterTheDragon'', breaking a condemned man out of prison and then brutalizing the man's family when they fail to pay up. He makes the turn when his next clients turn out to be the Yakuza, whom he hates. He decides to protect their victim at no charge rather than help them.

* TakeThat: Listen carefully when the guards take Terry to visit Junjo in his prison cell at the start of the film, and you'll notice the English dub contains a snipe at the then-new Bruceploitation phenomenon: "He must think he's BruceLee."
