* 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' Netflix profile makes Gnomekop, a one-off villain for a single episode, out to be the BigBad.
* DuelingWorks: The second and third seasons of ''JCA'' were aired alongside ''WesternAnimation/TheMummyTheAnimatedSeries''. ''JCA'' managed to get a few more seasons in than ''The Mummy'', which was put in stasis for 5 years after two seasons.
* FanNickname:
** "Jackiezilla", for when Jade used the Book of Ages to turn Jackie into a giant to beat down Shendu and the other Demon Sorcerers during "Demon World (Part 2)".
** The varieties of Shadowkhan are never named on-screen, but are known in fandom as the [[{{Ninja}} 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]].

* 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 was released in 2012, 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.
* NamesTheSame:
** Augustus Black is not the same Captain Black from ''Series/CaptainScarletAndTheMysterons''.
** 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]].
* 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, 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, who also voiced Tso Lan (Burton was actually never credited as Xiao Fung in any of the episodes where that character appears).
* 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, with Sergeant Zim from ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' (which also involved Sony/Tristar and is technically another military role), 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'', and a doctor in ''Film/CowboysAndAliens'' being some of the few other good examples.
* 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''.
