* KickTheDog: Shifu spends the first minute of his fight with Tai Lung on the defensive, blocking or dodging his attacks while trying to reason with him. He doesn't go on the offensive until Tai Lung taunts him about Oogway's passing.



* MightyGlacier: Played straight with Po, but averted by Tai Lung. Po's Kung Fu style is largely defensive, doging and blocking Tai Lung's attacks partially due to his lack of training and partially from his girth. Tai Lung, being a master of Leopard Style kung fu and trained by
Master Shifu from an early age, is a mountain of muscle and moves like greased lightning. His attacks hit hard and fast.

--->'''Oogway:''' (shrugging) I don't know! (Cut to Po clumsily weaving through the noodle shop customers)

* ArtisticAge: Type 2; Given that these are animals, it's hard to determine anyone's specific age. According to ''Secrets of the Furious Five'' and the sequel, Tigress and Crane are mentioned to at least be in their 30s or 40s, so it's safe to assume that other members of the Five and Po are about the same. The sequel confirms Po's age. [[spoiler:Po was a baby when Shen massacred his home village 30 years ago, so he's 31, give or take a year. However, the third film has Mr. Ping mention that he hid the truth from Po about his adoption for 20 years.]]
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: All of the various characters seem to have around the same level of physical strength, despite being radically different species. Notably, Mantis is able to bear the weight of an entire rope bridge and his four allies; quite a feat for a tiny invertebrate.

* BadassGrandpa: Anyone who can name a more [[TurtlePower whoop-ass ancient turtle]] than Oogway may raise their hand. Seeing how Shifu also kicks a fair amount of ass despite his age, he qualifies too.

* ForkFencing: Possibly the SugarWiki/MostTriumphantExample (even though it's actually Chopstick Fencing) when Po and Shifu use their kung fu skills to literally duel for the last dumpling at the end of his training.

* FakeOutOpening: The hand-drawn opening sequence and its BuffySpeak -- [[JustForFun/XMeetsY meets]] -- TotallyRadical narrative voiceover are revealed to be part of a dream Po is having: the rest of the film is 3D animation and much more conventionally written.

** The second day of Po's "training" starts off with Shifu and the Five thinking Po has quit when they discover that his room was empty. When they get to the Training Hall, they're shocked to find that Po has actually woken up early to train (and gotten himself stuck in the device used to hone flexibility).

--> '''Oogway''': One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: During his TrainingFromHell montage, Po becomes victim to a rapid-fire series of these. Tai Lung also hits him with one, though in every case [[MadeOfIron he's fine afterwards]].

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Shifu allowing Tai Lung to be released, since if not for his paranoia, he wouldn't have sent Zeng to double check his holdings and allowed Tai Lung the feather he needed to escape. However he only did that because Oogway said Tai Lung would escape, therefore it could be considered Oogway's fault. Also counts as SelfFulfillingProphecy.
