One way to show skill is with chopsticks. A common ability of the OldMaster.

One way to show skill is with chopsticks. A common While chopsticks are a staple tool for eating in many Eastern cultures, certain characters take the ability of to manipulate things with their chopsticks to an incredible extreme. One common trick is to [[ImprobableWeaponUser treat the OldMaster.chopsticks like darts]], embedding them into the target. Other improbable uses tend to be feats of dexterity and speed; easily doing something that is considered difficult with even normal hands. Can overlap with ForkFencing (optional; use both chopsticks instead of just one each).

* Toned down in ''Film/KillBill'': one of Pai Mei's tests for his students is for them to be able to graciously eat rice with chopsticks after a full day of TrainingFromHell (I.E. trying to break a board only a finger length away by BASHING YOUR KNUCKLES AGAINST IT.). The Bride eventually passes, [[spoiler:Elle]] doesn't.

* Subverted and PlayedForLaughs in the Creator/JackieChan [[TheRemake remake]] of ''Film/TheKarateKid2010''. He looks like he's about to perform that feat, but instead takes out a swatter and swats the fly. He then picks the fly up with his chopsticks, then ''continues eating with said chopsticks'', to which Dre remarks, "That's nasty."
