* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The only official DVD releases this series got were 3 single disc sets containing 3 episodes each, which don't even comprise the whole of Season 1, though a Season 1 set has been made but good luck finding it. A Season 2 DVD set has been released, but it's out of print and a bit pricey. The first two seasons can be found on Hulu. Fortunately, the entire series can be purchased off of iTunes and Amazon Instant Video.

* ActorAllusion: Jackie Chan absorbing the beast-like Earth Demon chi in Season 5 may be seen as a reference to the real Chan being the Chinese voice of another, [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast friendlier beast from 1991, who was voiced by Robby Benson in America.]]

* TheOtherDarrin: When Hak Foo originally debuted in the first season episode "The Dog & Piggy Show", he was voiced by Creator/JimCummings. After he became a regular, starting with season 2, John [=DiMaggio=] took over the role. In "Deja Vu", when Jackie relives the events of Hak's debut episode [[FlashbackWithTheOtherDarrin DiMaggio still voices the character]].

* RecycledScript: They even lampshade it. Season One had the team looking for the 12 talismans of Shendu and Season Two had them trying to prevent the unsealing of the 8 demon sorcerers. Season Three had the talismans destroyed and inhabit the animal namesake (the same magic in a new container) and season five had them looking for the artifacts of the immortals that imprisoned the 8 demon sorcerers (same elemental powers in new containers). Season four is the only completely original season with the Shadowkhan masks.

* BeamMeUpScotty: The line "I don't want no trabble!" is oddly associated with and would sound like it came from this show, but the line actually came from RushHour.

** Likewise, as stated in the HeyItsThatVoice entry above, Julian Sands voiced Valmont, but only for seasons 1 & 2. Greg Ellis voiced him in season 3 and Andrew Abselon voiced his handful of appearances in season 4.

** Evidently, [[Film/KillBill Bill]] sealed the ancient demonic dragon lord Shendu in stone 900 years before he got married to, and then tried to kill, The Bride, only to become the target of a revenge plot that Shendu would have LOVED to have been a part of.
*** On a side note, Bill's protege, [[Creator/LucyLiu O-Ren Ishii]][=/=][[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda Master Viper]], is the adult Jade Chan and the female [[Series/{{Elementary}} Watson.]] Jade ironically got her wish to be a secret agent when she became [[Film/BallisticEcksVsSever Sever]], a [[BoxOfficeBomb mission]] she probably [[RogerEbertMostHatedFilmList regrets.]]

** Jade, Katara, and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Hope Estheim]] all share the same father, who is also a false demon friend of Jade's, a very old but very powerful Earthbender, and the [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfPussInBoots masked thieves who are after the treasure of San Lorenzo]], as well as one of the town's citizens that [[Characters/{{Shrek}} Puss in Boots]] has sworn to protect.

** In the Brazilian dub, Jackie is [[Anime/DragonBallZ Goku]]! And WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants.

** Also, Jade should NOT be confused with the [[Franchise/MortalKombat friend of Kitana]], and you would be a bit dumb to confuse her teacher Mrs. Hartman with DrillSergeantNasty [[Film/FullMetalJacket Hartman]].

* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/ClancyBrown, normally a villain actor, playing a "good guy" in Captain Black and Super Moose. They're only several of these types of roles he's done, Sergeant Zim from ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' (which also involved Sony/Tristar and is technically another military role) and Raiden [[note]] which is a ShockAndAwe character; ironically, Tchang Zu's voice sounds more like Clancy Brown than Creator/FrankWelker, who was never credited in the end-of-episode credits for the role; also ironically, one of Brown's co-stars from ''Starship Troopers'', Casper Van Dien, later appeared in ''WebVideo/MortalKombatLegacy's'' second season [[/note]] from ''WesternAnimation/MortalKombatDefendersOfTheRealm'' being two of the few other good examples.
