YMMV: Enter the Dragon
  • Awesome Music: The film is scored by Lalo Schifrin. It's even more awesome when we learn in some documentaries that Lee trains to the Mission Impossible theme song.
  • Memetic Mutation: "O'Hara's treachery has disgraced us all..."
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Early in the film, we learn that Han gets off on coaxing his mistresses into destroying themselves with heroin. Then we see some of the process first-hand. It's not pretty.
    • Han himself deliberately invokes the trope: He puts his cat in a guillotine and asks if Roper is willing to kill it. Roper refuses.
    • When he visits his relative's graves, Lee himself says this might happen in regards to his revenge.
  • Narm: This face. And the "WAAAAAaaaaaaaaa..." yell he makes during it.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • The stoned girls are completely unaware that Williams is being murdered in front of them, even when his head smashes a lens of one's sunglasses.
    • One of the drugged girls in the heroin lab begs for help. She comes right out of no where and scares Bruce Lee of all people. The girl in front is too drugged to even register what is happening, and doesn't even appear to be breathing.
  • Retroactive Recognition:
    • Jackie Chan has one of his first roles as a random Mook. During the cavern fight he grabs Lee in a bear hug, only for Lee to quickly reverse the hold, kick another guy, and break his neck. He was also hit in the face for real during the famous nunchuck scene, which he says is still one of the most painful injuries he's ever suffered in his career.
    • Lee fights Sammo Hung in the opening scene.
    • Roper later goes to face Freddy Krueger not once but twice.
