YMMV: Shaolin Soccer
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment - When Sing first meets Mui at the bun stand, he sings a song to compliment her use of cooking and Tai Chi. When she accuses him of mocking her, a nearby patron backs up his sincerity with his own song... which inspires everyone nearby to join in a synchronized dance number. (The scene was deleted from the American release)
  • Bishōnen - Team Evil's goalie is incredibly pretty.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight - the ominous Buddhist droning-chanting we hear as Team Shaolin recovers their powers may have a different effect on viewers now that the 2010 South Africa World Cup has popularised the vuvuzela.
  • Hollywood Homely - Chinese actress Zhao Wei is beautiful in real life. Her character is the opposite and appears as what she was intended to look like.
  • Memetic Mutation - Iron Head's shocked face is a popular reaction image macro.
    • "Go back to Mars! Earth is very dangerous!"
  • Values Dissonance - Presumably why the underwear no-hospital scene was played as funny.
