* 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.]]
** In addition, Chan was also the Chinese singing voice of the Beast, and was the Chinese counterpart to Peabo Bryson in singing the title theme.
* ActorExistenceLimbo: After already [[TheOtherDarrin being replaced]] once, Valmont is reduced to a nonspeaking cameo in season five.
* 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.
* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: The series's Netflix profile makes Gnomekop, a one-off villain for a single episode, out to be the BigBad.
* FanNickname: [[Franchise/GodZilla Jackiezilla]], for the giant version of him from when Shendu rewrites reality so demons rule the earth.
** The varieties are never named on-screen, but are known in fandom as the Ninja-Khan, [[AirborneMook Bat-Khan]], [[GiantMook Sumo-Khan]], [[AdorableEvilMinions Shadow Eaters (or Leech-Khan)]], [[KatanasAreJustBetter Samurai-Khan]], [[EldritchAbomination Squid-Khan]], [[KnifeNut Razor-Khan]], [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe Crab-Khan]] and the [[FourLeggedInsect Mantis-Khan]], respectively.

** Drago is [[Series/{{Smallville}} Lex Luthor]], [[ActorAllusion with all the]] [[FreudWasRight daddy issues intact.]]
** You have [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Kwan]] playing Jackie, [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Lex Luthor]]/[[Film/StarshipTroopers Sergeant Zim]] as Captain Black, [[SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperForceGo Mandarin]] / [[Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina Lo Pan]] / [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda Mr. Ling]] as Daolon Wong, [[WesternAnimation/KimPossible Drakken]] and [[WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck Darkwing/Negaduck]] as Hak Foo, [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Rtas 'Vadum]] as Ratso, [[{{Series/Firefly}} Jayne]] as Finn, [[Series/TwentyFour Vladimir Bierko]] playing Valmont and [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Wonder Woman]] is Viper. And Uncle goes on to be [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Monk Gyatso]] and [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 Murakami]]. [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Patrick Star]] is a (surprisingly competent) mook in one episode.
** Maynard is {{Manga/Naruto}}.
** Subverted in that Jackie is not voiced by Jackie Chan, but rather Shendu himself, who is also the [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender cabbage salesman.]]
** 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.]]
** Otho will make you behold his mastery of gravity. He's picked up a few tricks since meeting Film/{{Beetlejuice}} and running [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Halloween Town]]. And he will soon become the leader of the [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Brotherhood of Evil, along with the organization's right hand.]]
** Jade, Katara, and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Hope Estheim]] all share the same father, who is also a false demon friend of Jade's AND a very old but very powerful Earthbender.
** [[Disney/{{Mulan}} Shan Yu]] went to Japan and became the King of All Shadowkhan. Later he becomes a [[Film/IronMan3 treacherous vice-president of the United States whose in league with Aldrich Killian, the false Mandarin.]]
** Bai Tza and Po Kong have had some experience in chilly ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', and got into the mind of Riley's mother in ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut''. They look comfortable there.
** In the Brazilian dub, Jackie is [[Anime/DragonBallZ Goku]]! And WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: the only official DVD releases this series got were 3 single disc sets containing 3 episodes each, which doesn't even comprise the whole first season, though a first season set has been made but good luck finding it. A second season DVD set has been released but it's out of print and a bit pricy. Fortunately the entire series is on Neflix (except, not anymore) and Hulu and can be purchased off of iTunes and Amazon Prime.
* NamesTheSame: Augustus Black is not the same Captain Black from ''Series/CaptainScarletAndTheMysterons''.
* NoExportForYou: The PS2 game never got released in America, only in Europe.
* 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]].
** 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.
** The Monkey King was voiced by [[Film/PoliceAcademy Bobcat Goldthwait]] in his first appearance and BillyWest in his second.
** After originally being voiced by Creator/CoreyBurton, all other appearances by Xiao Fung have him voiced by Glenn Shadix (Burton was actually never credited as Xiao Fung in any of the episodes where that character appears).
* RealLifeRelative: Stacie Chan, who voices Jackie's niece Jade in the cartoon and asks him questions from kids at the end of each episode, is in fact Jackie Chan's niece in real life.
* 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.
** The entire main plot arcs of all five seasons follow a basic structure: Locate potentially dangerous, if not apocalyptic, magical power sealed away somewhere around the world.
** Drago evaluating potential henchmen when looking for people to replace the Enforcers. The rejects (other than Valmont) showed results similar to those from when Finn tried to create his own gang.
* ScheduleSlip: The promos for the Season 2 premiere "The Stronger Evil" (along with the rest of Kids'WB! lineup for the fall of 2001) was set up, but the Tuesday before this scheduled premiere sadly happened to be [[TheWarOnTerror September 11th]], [[TooSoon/SeptemberEleventh when the World Trade Center was attacked and destroyed by Al-Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden, taking thousands of lives with it.]] Perhaps out of respect for this, Time Warner moved the entire schedule of Kids'WB! including the Demon Portal arc of Shendu's siblings back by two weeks following the 9/11 attacks (one of the reasons for the delay could be Creator/{{Sony}}/[[Creator/ColumbiaPictures Columbia]]/[[Creator/TristarPictures Tristar]]/Creator/JackieChan needing to have any potential images of the World Trade Center in the second episode of the demon arc of JCA airbrushed out; that episode, "[[Recap/JackieChanAdventuresS2E6TheJTeam The J-Team]]", includes a brief shot of the New York skyline, and it was supposed to be broadcast the following weekend), and the other two filler episodes that take place during Season 1 aired instead (the other filler, "[[Recap/JackieChanAdventuresS2E1ThroughTheRabbitHole Through The Rabbit Hole]]", aired the Saturday before the terrorist attacks; on a side note, Creator/HowardStern made a small TakeThat to Chan prior to the attacks which changed his radio broadcast).
* StockSoundEffects: Shendu's roars and growls actually come from the legendary T-Rex scene from Creator/StevenSpielberg's classic Film/JurassicPark. The roar became one of the effects from Lucasfilm's Skywalker Sound division.
* TalkingToHimself: James Sie voices both the animated Jackie and Shendu. Also Chow.
** Po Kong and Bai Tza are voiced by Creator/MonaMarshall.
** Xiao Fung and Tso Lan are both voiced by the late Glenn Shadix.
** ''Not'' [[SharingABody what happens to Shendu and Valmont]] by season two.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: According to real-life Jackie, the characters of the show are based on certain people in his life.
** Jade is based on an assortment of Jackie's nieces.
** Uncle is based on Jackie's father and agent.
** Tohru is based on one of Jackie's stunt team members and ''himself''.
