Bruce Lee had a majestic presence on the television screen and in person. Because of an early death, he became a legend. This led to numerous references to him in popular culture, almost as if he were a character in a book or apart of a “real movie.” I will make mention of a few of these references.

Fei Long: ThisĀ  is my favorite reference. The Street Fighter character who is battled in Hong Kong. His name means Flying Dragon in Chinese, an obvious and direct reference to Bruce Lee (not to mention his appearance and fighting style).

Lee (Naruto): Again, the name makes the reference apparent, along with his appearance. Lee’s determination is representative of an idealistic view about Bruce Lee.

Kill Bill: I haven’t seen either movie, but the track suit worn is a reference to Bruce Lee’s movie track suit.
