* LadyOfWar

to:

* LadyOfWarLadyOfWar: As a good-looking trained dancer who gets cast in a lot of martial arts roles, she tends to fall towards this trope.



* SheFu
* SupernaturalMartialArts

to:

* SheFu
SheFu: Again, she’s trained as a dancer, not as a fighter, and is lightly built — so fight choreographers sensibly tend to give her a lot of She Fu moves.
* SupernaturalMartialArtsSupernaturalMartialArts: Many of the roles she gets are in martial arts movues with a mystical edge — and emphasising that explains how this slender girl can win so many fights.



* WaifFu

to:

* WaifFuWaifFu: Again, she’s not big, but she moves well.

Zhang Ziyi (born 9 February 1979) 1979 in Beijing, China) is a Chinese actress, mostly famous outside of her home country for her roles in {{Wuxia}} movies.

Added DiffLines:

* DanceBattler: She has no martial arts training but is a trained dancer, so ''Film/CrouchingTigerHiddenDragon'' and ''Film/HouseOfFlyingDaggers'' incorporated dance into her fight choreography.
* FakeNationality:[[invoked]] In ''Film/MemoirsOfAGeisha'', she plays a Japanese woman. She had to learn English for the film and speak it in a Japanese accent, which she described as like a native English speaker trying to speak Russian with a Chinese accent.


Added DiffLines:

* PlayingAgainstType:[[invoked]] ''Film/MemoirsOfAGeisha'' is her most prominent non ActionGirl role.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBookFantasyCasting: The comic book ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'' redesigned the Wasp after Ziyi's likeness.

Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyLook: She has practically aged nothing between ''[[Film/RushHour Rush Hour 2]]'' and ''Film/GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters'', despite the fact that these two films were released 18 years apart.

Added DiffLines:

* ActingForTwo:[[invoked]] As Dr. Ilene Chen and Dr. Ling in ''Film/GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters''.
