* 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.

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.
** 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.

* 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 Jim Cummings. 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.
* 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.
* 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.
