* GroinAttack: At the end of "Rock'em Sock'em Ruby", the Wasabitron 3000 ends up breaking down and is finally defeated by Rudy with a kick to "the motherboard", as put best by Bobby.



* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: At the end of "Rock'em Sock'em Ruby", the Wasabitron 3000 breaks down from being unable to process the fact that even though the dojo members (and Bobby) can't win against it, they still won't give up. Rudy then approaches it and says, "Something else about us humans: we don't hit a man when he's down. The thing is...[[ExactWords you're not]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman a man.]]" He then kicks the robot in [[GroinAttack "the motherboard"]], as described by Bobby.

* SadistTeacher: Ty towards the Wasabi Warriors when Rudy retired and became a business man by taking away Jack and Kim's black belts, turning Jerry into a punching dummy, and made Milton and Eddie drink excessive amounts of water, forces them to fight each other and only allow the winner to use the rest room.
** In Kickin' It Old School, Coach Funderburk basically made Rudy's life a living hell when he had to return to high school for a few days in order to receive an award simply because his love interest and the health teacher, Ms. Applebaum liked Rudy instead of him.

* BadJobWorseUniform: Averted(!); the Christmas elf uniform is just a polo shirt and khakis with a Santa hat. This in a series that ''loves'' putting funny costumes on people, even by Disney KidCom standards.

* TheCastShowoff: Both Creator/LeoHoward and Creator/OliviaHolt are actual black belts in karate. Leo takes this UpToEleven, as he does all his own stunts.
** Mateo Arias is also a very talented dancer.
** Olivia Holt and Kelli Berglund showcase their singing talent in ''The New Girl''.
*** Interestingly, this is the first time Kelli Berglund sings onscreen even if her more famous role on ''Series/LabRats'' it taken into account.
* CastingGag: [[HannahMontana This isn't the first time]] Jason Earles plays a ManChild JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
** Moises Arias was once Jason Earles' boss. Now, Jason Earles's is Mateo Arias's boss...err, Sensei.
** This also isn't the first time Loni Love plays a [[SassyBlackWoman sassy]] [[NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide lunch lady]].
** Then there's Reed Alexander, who plays a character who seeks to humiliate and torture the main characters. Sounds a lot like [[Series/ICarly Nevel]], doesn't it?

* {{Jerkass}} / UngratefulBastard: Jack's cousin Kai. [[spoiler:He disguised his teammates as ninjas to ambush and injure Jack's wrist so he can't compete in the China tournament. Jack figures this out when he notices one of Kai's teammates has the same tatoo as one of the people who ambushed him and calls Kai out on it. Kai then attacks Jack for no apparent reason other than being provoked. The two fight, but Jack saves Kai from nearly falling off the Great Wall. Rather than thank Jack for saving his life, Kai states that Jack is weak for saving him and continues the fight.]]

* TheMall: Nearly all scenes take place there or at the school. Note that in RealLife a karate dojo doesn't rely on impulse traffic and thus has little need for a prime retail location, so the presence of one is a sign the [[DyingTown mall is going downhill]].

** There's an episode called "Film/WeddingCrashers". In addition to the obvious reference, it may be an allusion towards the IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming of ''Series/CrashAndBernstein'' (in which the word "Crash" is part of every season 1 and a number of season 2 episodes) as Oana Gregory reprises her role as Mika.

Because of the attracted publicity, Phil must let Rudy eat for free. When Phil declares he had enough, Rudy decides to boycott Falafel Phil's and eat at Captain Corndogs', where he also becomes the umpteenth customer [[spoiler:and ends up going to a hospital for eating too many corn dogs]].
