* OurGhoulsAreCreepier: His visual effect due to his pale skin, mismatched eyes, upturned nose, bald head, and massive underbite.

* FatAndSkinny: The skinny to Watson's chunky physique.



* BadassMoustache

to:

* BadassMoustacheBadassMoustache: As well as large muttonchops.
* BadassLongcoat: He is commonly seen wearing a large greatcoat that covers all but his feet and forearms.
* TheBigGuy: Largest of the three protagonists and the strongest due to being a robot.
* DoAnythingRobot: He seems to always have just the right scanning function or tool for the job at hand.



* NiceHat
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot

to:

* NiceHat
FatAndSkinny: The fat to Holmes' skinny. Explicitly stated in-universe by Holmes as sharing a somewhat potbellied appearance with his namesake, the original John Watson.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobotNiceHat: A bowler hat.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: In at least one instance, he coughs due to a cloud of smoke. The robot below the elasto-mask has neither mouth nor lungs.
* RobotBuddy: Naturally.



* SuperStrength
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman

to:

* SuperStrength
SuperStrength: Comes with being a robot.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman
TheWatson: Goes back and forth on this; occasionally he asks questions to give Holmes a chance to reveal what he has discovered, but will also bounce his own deductions and inferences off Holmes.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: "The Fall And Rise of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Crime Machine" let Holmes explore his relationship with Watson. "The Five Orange Pips" revolves around this trope.



* ByTheBookCop[=/=]LawfulStupid: Grayson straddles the line of this due to his unwillingness to deviate from police procedure for a moment.

* ByTheBookCop[=/=]LawfulStupid: Grayson straddles the line of this due to his unwillingness to deviate from police procedure for even a moment.



* FatIdiot: His portrayal, albeit probably not intentionally so by the writers. Comes across as this, as the result of his combination of husky build (with an obvious paunch) and his incompetence in the course of fighting crime, including once being Moriarty's UnwittingPawn to provide an alibi for a crime. He was also introduced getting an elasto-mask of an old woman stuck on his head.
* LargeAndInCharge: Physically a large man, and commands New Scotland Yard.



* TurnInYourBadge: Does this at least once to Lestrade. It doesn't take.




to:

* BlackBaldLeaderGuy: Of the Irregulars.
* HiddenDepths/SmarterThanYouLook: In spite of his somewhat thuggish mode of dress, he winds up demonstrating enough talent and astuteness at their first meeting to impress Holmes.
* ICouldaBeenAContender: Once a talented football (soccer) player until an injury put an end to his sport ambitions. He has since taken up boxing.
* PhotographicMemory: According to a poster of the characters.
* TheSouthpaw: Holmes pegs him as a lefty in their first meeting, which can be beneficial for an amateur boxer.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Always seen in a sleeveless duster.
* TheYardies: Black and an implied juvenile delinquent, albeit a LighterAndSofter version to the point of general harmlessness.

* IntelligibleUnintelligible: Speaks in beeps, warbles, and musical tones, but is understood by Holmes and the Irregulars.
* PlayfulHacker: Can break into computers easily, but is never malicious about it.
