Before an update on September 5, 2012 removed the ability to miss with normal attacks, missing while attacking unarmed with Kung Fu Hustler gave one of the following messages:
- You try to unleash an Unpleasant Dolphin Kneeblast, but your knee demands fish before it performs.
- You attempt a Dragon Kidney Kick, but your chi is unfocused, and it turns into a Bunny Tickle Happy.
- You try to give it the Thousand Hand Slap, but end up furiously waving at it from a few feet away.
- You try to harness your chi, but end up harnessing some chai instead. It's delicious, but not useful in a fight.
- You try to launch a flying kick, but it gets grounded due to weather conditions.
- You try to do a Drunken Monkey Lotus Slap, but can only manage to stagger around going "ook."
- You throw a couple of karate chops, but your skill is too choppy to allow them to connect, so not one chop sticks.
- You attempt the dreaded Lenticular Python Chop, but can only manage a pork chop, which is delicious, but not at all dangerous.
- You try for a Bipolar Tiger Elbow, but you're just too depressed to pull it off.
- Kung Fu Hustle is the American name for a 2004 Hong Kong martial arts comedy.
- The intrinsic effect names follow the first stanza of the '70s song Kung Fu Fighting: Everybody was kung-fu fighting / Those cats were fast as lightning / In fact it was a little bit frightening / But they fought with expert timing.
- The Thousand Hand Slap message is a reference to E. Honda from the Street Fighter series.
