** Also the alleged reason for the King of Bohemia wanting the photograph of himself and Irene Adler: he told Holmes that she would blackmail him with it. Then, in a TwistEnding, we find out that it was rather the other way around.

* TheMafia: OlderThanTelevision, at least as far as fiction goes, since the Mafia are the bad guys in "The Six Napoleons". Doyle describes the Mafia as "a secret political society, enforcing its decrees by murder."

* NiceHat: Contrary to what now is popular belief, Holmes did wear a deerstalker. But never in the city, always in the country. In the city he sometimes wore a top hat, when not undercover of course. This is according to the original Sydney Paget illustrations, that Sir Creator/ArthurConanDoyle approved himself (and he usually requested Paget as his artist), so it's canon, or at least more canon that interior illustrations tend to be.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Holmes is perhaps the most well known example of this trope, and it could even be considered a staple of the character. He has a knowledge crime that would put TheOtherWiki to shame, and yet is unaware that the earth revolves around the sun, believes that the human mind can only hold a certain number of thoughts and ideas until its full (though it seems that he later rejects this belief) suffers from "periods of lethargy", and is a casual cocaine user.

* Arcadia: Deconstructed in "The Copper Beeches". On a trip into the countryside, Watson comments on the beauty of the country farmhouses, to which Holmes responded by pointing out that isolation enables criminals and abusers to get away with it much more easily than they could in the crowded city.

* TorchTheFranchiseAndRun: The reason there was a 10 year gap between ''The Final Problem'' and ''The Adventure of the Empty House''. Doyle had simply got tired of writing Sherlock Holmes stories and wanted to move on to do historical novels. He managed to ignore the backlash for a decade before going back to writing Sherlock Holmes book when it became clear that his historical novels just aren't selling, but not before producing the classic that is ''The Hound of the Baskervilles'' two years before returning to writing ''Sherlock'' stories full time.
