* DawsonCasting: Nicholas Rowe, who plays Sherlock Holmes, is several years older than most of the other actors playing students. This was probably intentional to give Holmes his necessary height and appearance of superior intellect.



* {{Flanderization}}: This film does use the Flanderized version of Watson who's overweight and rather clueless, but it's somewhat {{justified|Trope}} by being Watson as a ''schoolboy''. Presumably he's got years (and a stint in the military) yet to grow into the more fit and savvy Watson the original was. [[spoiler: And in the end, Watson narrates that [[ComingOfAgeStory this first adventure with Holmes IS part of what helped him go from a weak, easily frightened boy to a man]].]]
* FollowTheLeader: From two different ends.
** What does Franchise/HarryPotter have to do with ''Young Sherlock Holmes''? [[http://harryholmes.blogspot.com/ A lot, actually!]]
** From the other end, ''Young Sherlock Holmes'' takes its cues from ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' - so much so that the UK release was called ''Young Sherlock Holmes and the Pyramid of Fear''.
** From the ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' satire "Young Sureschlock Homely":
-->'''Indiana Jones''': Hmm, this scene seems familiar, but not the dialogue! Am I in the right movie, Mr. Spielberg?
-->'''Steven Spielberg''': Go back a few pages, Indy - ''[[Film/TheJewelOfTheNile Fool Of The Nile]]'' needs you more than Sureschlock!
* ForceFeeding: The sequence where John Watson hallucinates that his legs are bound with sausages and that pastries are trying to force him to eat them. On Website/YouTube [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SZrHgS1Dss here.]]

* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: After Chester Cragwitch is affected by a hallucinogenic drug that causes violent and self-destructive actions, Holmes tries to talk him down by reminding him of his name and that he's a banker. It just works long enough for Cragwitch to tell the entire story before he tries to strangle Holmes.



* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Two famous items associated with Holmes are featured here: the deerstalker cap and the curved pipe. Both are treated as ridiculous in-universe, particularly the pipe, which Watson had to buy so Holmes could get information. Holmes thought the pipe in particular was ridiculous, while he inherited the cap from Waxflatter..
