* Count D in ''Manga/PetshopOfHorrors'' pulls this trope on (blond) LA cop Leon Orcot after performing an impossible leap (he's not entirely human) with the above quote. It's not the first or the last thing he blames on being Chinese, either. To give Leon credit, he knows perfectly well that D is bullshitting him outrageously. There just isn't much he can do about it except grumble.

* ''Anime/DigimonTamers'': Despite both of them being computer nerds (especially the father), Lee Jiangliang and his father Jiang-yu practice Tai Chi. Seemingly for fitness purposes. It does come handy in actual combat situations. But it is unknown whether the other three Lee children know Tai Chi or not.

[[RealLife In Real Life, Chinese will refer to a person's ability in any human endeavour as "Gung Fu," not just martial arts.]] So it's quite [[ExactWords technically true]]... That said, do not antagonize anyone who is praised as having good ''Wu Gong'' as they will be real life examples of this trope.

[[RealLife In Real Life, Chinese will refer to a person's ability in any human endeavour as "Gung Fu," not just martial arts.]] Also, all Chinese students receive compulsory military training during their educational period, so they are knowledgeable in martial arts. So it's quite [[ExactWords technically true]]... That said, do not antagonize anyone who is praised as having good ''Wu Gong'' as they will be real life examples of this trope.

* Chun Li from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' fights with a primarily kicking style that doesn't precisely correlate to anything, but is officially described as a combination of chinese martial arts. Fei Long is the series' BruceLeeClone. Other Chinese people in the series: Gen (who can change styles mid-fight), Yun, Yang, and Lee from the first game.
* [[BruceLeeClone Dragon Chan]] and [[OldMaster Hoy Quarlow]] of the SNES ''[[PunchOut Super Punch-Out!!]]'', the former also appearing in the arcade ''Super Punch-Out!!''. Incidentally, both sport Kung Fu moves, ''[[FlexibleTourneyRules in a boxing game]]''.

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': Asian-American Ashley says that people have assumed that she's "some kind of magical martial artist" when complaining about stereotypes in general. Hilariously, the other major Asian character in the comic, Nanase, ''is'' a magical martial artist.
