* ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' mocks this. Peejee rescues a man she knows from an awful date by pretending he's her boyfriend, and angrily scaring off his date by threatening her with "the ancient Chinese secret of the bowel-emptying death noogie".
--> '''Peejee''': Fucking white people. It amazes me the shit they'll believe as long as you're Asian and start your threat with "ancient Chinese secret".

* ''Film/TheDeadPool'' plays with this trope. Dirty Harry gets a new partner. An asian one. He assumes his new partner knows martial arts, the partner points that it's kinda racist to assume this. Some ten minutes later, said partner disarms and knocks out a robber with some fancy martial arts moves.

** Same with the Philippines and Arnis/Kali, though this is mandatory. Some schools specialize in fencing, karate, judo and taekwondo.
** Korea has similar clubs of kenpo and taekwondo, among other martial arts. It should also be noted that young men must enlist in the military which means a significant number of citizens have received combat training.

* Nanase of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is a Japanese-American who was introduced as a highly skilled [[SuperNaturalMartialArts Supernatural Martial Artist]]. In, y'know, white-boy Elliot's rather absurd dojo. Where she was the only Asian, and the sensei is black and seven feet tall and based his style on anime....
** Averted with Tedd, however, who is also Japanese-American (he and Nanase are cousins through their mothers) and is probably the weakest member of the main case in terms of pure physical ability and knows next to nothing about combat.

* Nanase This trope is discussed by Ashley in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. She states that she has had people assume she is [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2038 "some kind of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' magical martial artist"]] simply because she's Asian. Amusingly, the character she's talking to is actually [[SupernaturalMartialArts some kind of magical martial artist.]] The author also took the opportunity to gently mock himself over the fact that Nanase, the first explicitly Asian character he introduced was a Japanese-American who martial artist (Tedd was introduced as a highly skilled [[SuperNaturalMartialArts Supernatural Martial Artist]]. In, y'know, white-boy Elliot's rather absurd dojo. Where she was earlier, but the only Asian, and the sensei is black and seven feet tall and based his style on anime....
** Averted with Tedd, however, who is also Japanese-American (he and Nanase are cousins through their mothers) and is probably the weakest member of the main case in terms of pure physical ability and knows next to nothing about combat.
fact that he's half-Japanese wasn't made known until later).
