* FakeNationality: In addition to David Carradine (although in fairness Caine was half-American), the two-part episode "Besieged" featured his partner at the time Barbara Hershey (then billed as Barbara Seagull) as [[WTHCastingAgency a Chinese girl called Nan Ching]].
* IronyAsSheIsCast: David Carradine had no formal martial arts training of any sort. He had received some training as a dancer when he was younger.
* RealLifeRelative: In several episodes, a younger Kwai Chang Caine was played by Creator/KeithCarradine, David Carradine's younger brother. Their other brother Robert Carradine and their father Creator/JohnCarradine also appeared in episodes (as Sonny Jim and Serenity Johnson, respectively).
* RecycledSet: The set for the Shaolin Temple was originally a set used for ''Film/{{Camelot}}'' that was inexpensively and effectively converted for the Chinese setting.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/BruceLee was supposed to star as Caine, but the networks were unsure about casting an Asian actor.
* WorkingTitle: ''The Warrior''.
* {{Yellowface}}: Thankfully almost completely averted, with Asian characters played by nearly always plaed by Asian/Asian-American actors. See above for a very glaring exception.
