YMMV / CHO Colate

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: During the fight in the ice factory, Zen starts whooping and hollering while fighting the workers. We're given no reason for why she acts like this during that scene, or why she never does it again. Most likely she was enjoying herself and/or giving a shout out to Bruce Lee. Either that or it was echolalia.
  • Creepy Awesome: Thomas. His weird spasms, acrobatic skills and ridiculous accuracy are both unsettling and glorious to see.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Two disabled children fighting in an incredibly technical kung fu scuffle? Awesome.
  • Critical Research Failure / Artistic Licence: Autism tends to impair motor skills, so even if Zen wanted to be a fighter, she'd have a hard time with it, and she'd be nowhere near as talented as she appears to be. Same with Tourette's.
  • Even so, every autistic person is different; some people have trouble with fine motor skills, such as writing, while being great with gross motor skills, like playing sports, or, in this case, doing martial arts. Or vice versa.
  • Funny Moments: The guy in the butchers shop who first has his thrown knife bounce back at him and sticks in his shoulder. Then gets hit with another knife when he starts to recover but this time he only gets with the flat side in the chest instead of the edge part.
  • Moe: Zen, considering her actress played her as childlike, and she was nonverbal and autistic. Justified in that the character is fifteen years old.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff:Chocolate is more popular with American audiences than it's native Thailand, because of Zen's autism.
