* DeathOfAThousandCuts: Invoked with the Thousand Cuts style, which uses multiple light strikes to overwhelm an opponent's defenses. The so-called heavy attacks are really just a sudden rush of many quick jabs.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech:
** After Gao the Lesser loses in a fair duel against the player and [[SoreLoser tries to attack them with a style he was explicitly forbidden to use]], Master Li puts him in his place with a harsh tone.
-->'''Master Li''': Gao! I have made enough concessions to you today! I thought I could guide you away from your corrupted path, but you are too much the son of Gao the Greater! You are no longer welcome among my students, and your father's house shall have no more business here, despite his influence.
-->'''Gao the Lesser''': I was not beaten! Not by this peasant!
-->'''Master Li''': You were defeated by your own foolish ambition and predictable temper. I will speak with you in my chambers about your expulsion. Go now!
** After the player corrupts a Jade Golem, causing it to wreak havoc in the Lotus Assassin Fortress, Grand Inquisitor Jia tells her subordinates that they didn't realize that one of their acolytes could be an infiltrator [[WeAreStrugglingTogether because of their infighting]].
-->'''Grand Inquisitor Jia''': Fool! So blinded by petty schemes that you cannot see a threat in our midst! You are worthless!

** Likewise, [[spoiler:Master Smiling Hawk, developer of the Hidden Fist technique]] manages to rapid-kick you through a wall with ease--one of only 4 people to ever canonically hurt the player character (The others being a ghost girl in Old Tien's Landing, the Fox Spirit, and [[spoiler: Master Li]] ). However, when fought in-game, he's only slightly stronger than Gao the Lesser was, and you fought him long ago and have no doubt upgraded since then.

* FighterMageThief: The three Sung brothers in the Imperial Arena form this dynamic; Sung Bu fights with two swords (the Fighter), Sung Sui switches between a staff and the Ice Shard and Dire Flame styles (the Mage), and Sung Bo uses the quick Monkey Paw martial style (the Thief).

Added DiffLines:

* FreudianTrio: The Sung brothers are a textbook example of this dynamic; the youngest brother Bu is the most simpleminded and has to offer only naive comments (Id), the eldest brother Sui is a coolly composed and educated astronomer (Superego), and the middle brother Bo is the most approachable with his sound layman demeanor (Ego). This comes well into play while conversing with the brothers; Sung Bo is the one you can question, with his brothers throwing in their own comments that are left for Bo to explain.

* FascistButInefficient:
** The Empire really does not have things together. Once the PC ends up on their radar, they announce a search for the "Scourge of the South" in the Imperial City with laughably incorrect and contradictory descriptions, and the PC can even talk to the crier who's making the announcement. The Imperial Army is forbidden from actually doing its job and guarding the city, while the Lotus Assassins are too busy with the Emperor's golem army project to even try to maintain order. The only way the government gets anything done is when they subcontract their job to criminal gangs.
** The Lotus Assassins are initially portrayed as superhumanly-competent, but they're actually ''worse'' than the usual Imperial inefficiency. Their information sources are so laughable that the PC can get recruited as an acolyte despite being their #1 enemy, and once inside, they're shown to be so riddled with ChronicBackstabbingDisorder that it seems impossible that they can even keep their numbers up. The lives of acolytes and even full Lotus Assassins are of so little value that you can freely kill whoever you want without consequences, and even if ''masters'' die, you won't catch any heat for it: Their boss will just promote you over their dead bodies. In this light, it's almost a joke how Grand Inquisitor Jia claims that "''our'' strength lies in ''preparation''."



** Your companions' weapons can damage ghosts, but not the yours. Heck, when [[spoiler:''you're'' using your weapons ''as'' a ghost, they don't damage ghosts.]]

** One of the graves in the Imperial city necropolis reads [[PlanescapeTorment "To the Nameless One. His Torments have ended."]] Considering the setting, it might also serve as a reference to Jet Li's character in [[{{Film/HERO}} Hero]].
