* FantasticFightingStyle: Half averted. What Holmes uses is an embellished form of "Bartitsu"[[note]]Conan Doyle actually wrote Holmes as knowing "Baritsu", but it is not known whether it was perhaps due to a typo or a copyright trouble.[[/note]], a real life British martial art based on Japan's jujitsu and taught by one Lord Barry. However, its application onscreen is liberally mixed with Brazilian jiu-jitsu (added by director Guy Ritchie, who is a BJJ brown belt - but this being basics Bartitsu actually contained thanks to its jujitsu origins) and Wing-Chun kung fu (Robert Downey, Jr.'s primary style of martial arts, which was speculated in-universe by the choreographer of the film as due to Holmes having a book of Chinese boxing which he tested in his bareknuckle fights), as well as some serious ImprovFu. The final duel at the sequel even more closely resembles historical Bartitsu.

* CutLexLuthorACheck: The EvilGenius has developed a method of [[spoiler:radio control]] seven years before it was invented by UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla. Blackwood uses his remarkable invention to [[spoiler:pretend to have magical powers and kill opposing politicians]]). Subverted when Moriarty sees the value in the radio receiver and steals it.

** In order to incapacitate the first mook of the film, Sherlock manually sweeps his leg and punches the side of his kneecap to blow the limb. While this is not terribly unrealistic, a ''punch'' to the side of a knee would be difficult to pull out and would not do as much damage as, say, a kick, to the point that it would need a freakingly good striker (as Sherlock is supposed to be in the film, anyways). Needless to say that you better don't attemp to punch an aggressor's knee in real life.

** Blackwood's death involves having his ankle tangled in a rope tied to a heavy board that for ''some reason'' decides to fall at that precise moment. When Holmes cuts him loose, a crane randomly breaks away and tangles his ''neck'', hanging him as he was supposed to be hanged.
