* MadeOfExplodium: The liner ''Paradise'' (from the second serial) must have been made from flash paper. In the time it takes the Hornet to force a one-page confession from a crook, a fire in one of the holds takes over most of the ship.

No occurence of nerdy Asians can be this trope in 1940.
* AsianAndNerdy: Calling Kato nerdy is a stretch, but in the second serial hes very happy at the prospect of getting to discuss his inventions with a fellow scientist.

* FakeNationality: A Chinese [[note]](Keye Luke was born in Canton)[[/note]] actor, using a fake Japanese accent, portraying the Korean scientist/valet Kato.

* TheOtherDarrin: The role of Britt Reid/The Green Hornet was recast between the two serials.

* StuntCasting: An audio version -- when Gordon Jones donned the Green Hornet's mask, radio Hornet Al Hodge took over the dialogue. (LipLock issues were avoided thanks to the serial Hornet's full-face mask.) Dropped for the second serial; Warren Hull delivered the Hornet's lines himself.

* CoolCar: The Black Beauty of the serials wasn't tricked-out like the one from the 1960s TV series, but still qualifies. It was unarmed, but was bulletproof and could easily do over 200 MPH. [[hottip:*:For comparison, in the 1939 Indianapolis 500 race, the average speed was only 115 MPH and the pole speed was 130 MPH.]]

The formula worked well enough that it was used again in the second serial, ''The Green Hornet Strikes Again!''. While Reid (with Kato) was on vacation in Hawaii, a new crime syndicate formed back home. They sent an assassin to Hawaii to kill Reid, in hopes that they could then take over his newspaper "The Sentinel" and end its crusading approach to the news. All they accomplished was to let Reid know it was time for the Green Hornet to get back to work. In this serial, Warren Hull played Reid/The Green Hornet; the other main roles were unchanged. The serial ran for fifteen chapters.
