* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: The three goons insistently refer to themselves as "kidnappers", not "robbers". However, they haven't actually kidnapped them.

* ExcuseMeWhileIMultitask: In ''Kick Back'', the boys fight off a pack of ninjas while taking a phone call from their mother. They actually toss the phone to each other during the fight so she can talk to each of them, and explain away the noise as an action movie on TV.



* WeWillMeetAgain: In ''Knuckle Up'', a furious Harding vows "This isn't over yet!" when the judge orders his landfill permanently shut down. Unfortunately for him, as someone else points out, "it's very over."

* XMeetsY: The movie has the martial arts of Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles, and the {{Slapstick}} antics of Film/HomeAlone. It was even ''advertised'' this way.

* McNinja: Admittedly, while the Three Ninjas are in fact very competent in terms of their pure martial arts skills, their grandfather is not teaching them real-life ninja philosophy. To name just one example, real-life ninjas did not live by codes of honor that would involve body, mind, spirit, and heart or anything that noble {{Justified|Trope}}, however, because their grandfather does not ''just'' want to teach them how to be ninjas, he wants them to grow up moral and good. It makes perfect sense that he'd be willing to take a few liberties with what sort of people ninja are supposed to be.

** The Mooks are a much clearer example; they're pretty clearly generic thugs with negligible skill in martial arts wearing costumes to be thematic. The boys even call them on this when they see them openly patrolling with rifles.

* ObviousStuntDouble: In some of Grandpa's fight scenes, it's glaringly obvious that a stunt double is used, as the stunt man is clearly many pounds lighter than the heavyset Victor Wong.

* HollywoodGenetics: Surprisingly averted. While it's clear they're trying to justify [[MightyWhitey white-washing]], it is entirely possible for the Douglas brothers to be white. The more an ethnic group reproduces outside of its own, the more the common genetic traits of that ethnic group are diluted. The grandfather married a white woman, making the boys' mother half-Asian, and the mother married a white man, making the boys only a quarter Asian. With so little Asian blood left, they are more likely to resemble their Caucasian father; the only ethnic trait dominant enough to survive is the characteristic tilt to the eyes (which they do not have).
