* A standard Western yo-yo, as noted above, is the bane of babysitters and parents everywhere. Those fancy trick yo-yos that were briefly fashionable around the turn of the millennium are even worse. And ones made of aluminum are even more dangerous. Anyone just starting to learn tricks would be wise to use a mouthguard and mind their hands/wrists when throwing/returning the yoyo with any significant amount of force.

** Their original incarnation, before the aforementioned addition to their firepower, wasn't all that strong and effective, as they were made from rock crystal. (In fact, Cadderly was aware of that from the start -- he simply pulled an AintNoRule to have his toy classified as a 'weapon' for training purposes, being more interested in tinkering and occasionally fooling around than actual fighting at the time.) However, when [[spoiler: Ivan makes him a new pair out of Adamantite, even he admits that they're a good weapon (while having to remove a piece of someone's face before giving them to Cadderly).]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' Comics #131 featured a manga-styled segment. Lisa appears at the end, wielding two yo-yos and sporting understandably [[Manga/DragonBall Super Saiyan]]-like hair. Pretty much a general ShoutOut to Sukeba nDeka.

According to popular legend, the simple child's toy known as a yo-yo began as a weapon in the hands of Filipino tribesmen centuries ago. [[note]]Historians attribute the legend to Filipino hero Jose Rizal, who might have been really joking. He used to carve and play with yoyos while traveling on ships.[[/note]]
