When Sing arrives at Pig Sty Alley, he shows fancy footwork with a football, then says, "You're still playing football?". This refers to his previous movie, Shaolin Soccer as does the scene where a Clerk beats Sing up on a bus. The clerk also appeared in Shaolin Soccer as the leader of an opposing team who used hidden weapons to beat up the Shaolin Soccer team.

The Harpists imitate The Blues Brothers, wearing similar hats and sunglasses at all times. When they are flattered by the Axe Gang advisor, one of them answers "Strictly speaking we're just musicians", similar to a line by Elwood Blues.

Afterwards, with his dying breath, he gets up, grabs the Landlord by the shirt and utters in English, "What are you prepared to do?", a nod to Sean Connery's character Jim Malone in Brian De Palma's 1987 film The Untouchables.

Raging Bull (1980)
The scene in which the Beast prompts an axe member to punch him harder is reminiscent of a similar scene in Raging Bull, with Robert De Niro's character prompting Joe Pesci's character.

The scene where the landlady confronts Brother Sum in the back of his car is a homage to Bruce Lee in Way of the Dragon, where he cracks his knuckles and gives a fast upper nod to the bad guy, telling him to back off.

Parodies and references of Kung Fu Hustle

there are others but not movies:
-Wuxia novels
-Lu Hao-tung
-Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner
-Palm of Ru Lai
-Louis Cha's Wuxia novels

if someone is wondering why i insert "Butterflies" in the title:

-In the movie there is a butterfly
-in italian butterfly(farfalla) is a synonym of "citation"
