** Both in the theatrical film and the TV pilot. Really, considering both were produced in the the 1980s and after ''TheKarateKid'' became a smash hit with Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi, the producers simply should have known better.

* TheGreatestStyle: Sinanju is a CharlesAtlasSuperpower SecretArt, a [[SupernaturalMartialArts Supernatural Martial Art]] and a FantasticFightingStyle. It even grants NewPowersAsThePlotDemands. It's the "sun source" of all other martial arts - in other words, all other martial arts are based on it, and it is better than any of them.

The Destroyer is a series of action/adventure novels with elements of black comedy. It's about a [[SaltAndPepper bizarre pair]] of [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower supermen]] who [[WalkingTheEarth stride the earth]] [[WeHelpTheHelpless righting wrongs]] and [[WeirdTradeUnion making a living]] by [[VigilanteExecution killing people]] who really need to be dead. The main characters are Dr. Harold "Emperor" Smith, OldMaster [[ProfessionalKiller Assassin]] Chiun, and his protege MightyWhitey Remo Williams. [[RuleOfCool Cool]] and [[RuleOfFunny funny]], but ''definitely'' a GuiltyPleasure.

* AdaptationDistillation: The comic put out by Marvel is even better than the first book.



** CriminalAmnesia / AmnesiacLiar: Remo kills professional killer PJ Kenny at the beginning of the book and takes his identity. Maggie helpfully provides him with the cover story he gave her after he lost his memory and he decides he really is a professional killer. Which, of course, he is, albeit for the good guys.
