Trivia

During the introductory training sequence, Leroy karate-chops an arrow as it soars past him. This is for real; it took two hours to get the stunt right.
In 1997, Busta Rhymes parodied the character Sho'nuff in his music video for "Dangerous". In the video, the music cuts off, and Busta proclaims, "Yo Leroy! Am I not the baddest..." and replicates the first on-screen speech of Sho'nuff in this movie.
