* RecklessGunUsage: If there was a gun involved in the murder-of-the-week, odds are good that Perry Mason will recklessly wave that gun around. One episode was {{egregious}}: The district attorney, Hamilton Burger, fondles the murder weapon (a revolver marked as exhibit whatever) during the trial and rests it casually on the witness box, his finger on the trigger, the barrel aimed directly at the weapons expert's head. After a few questions, he turns it toward the jury, gesturing dramatically. Then, Mason does exactly the same thing when cross-examining.

* SpiritualSuccessor: ''{{Matlock}}''. The Hallmark Channel's series of ''[=McBride=]'' made-for-TV movies could be considered this as well.

* InvincibleHero: Perry Mason. Legend has it that the TV writers wanted to do at least one episode where Perry lost, but Erle Stanley Gardner shot them down. Rescuing a client from the electric chair at the last possible moment was as close as it got. [[WordOfGod Barbara Hale]] (Della Street), however, said in a relatively recent interview that the cases lost by Perry had been declared mistrials off the air.

* WackyAmericansHaveWackyNames: Hamilton Burger.
** Plenty of examples from other characters, too. Mauvis Meade/Morley Theilman/Jackson Sidemark, anyone?
*** Many of Perry's cases involved high society people or old money. Just the types to have stuffy, old, out-of-date names like the above. Plenty of other clients and side characters had perfectly sensible names for the times (the 50s and 60s)
