This legend may stem partially from the fact that as a weapon, the yo-yo bears a resemblance to the Chinese meteor-hammer, one of a set of flexible weapons in Chinese martial arts that can be employed to devastating effect and with great flair. The mundane yo-yo makes a great stand in for these types of weapons. It may also stem from the fact that a typical yo-yo user (a small child) can, and sometimes will, cause major harm to anyone in the yo-yo's vicinity.

A type of EpicFlail. See also ImprobableWeaponUser. Compare BattleTops.

BattleTops. Your Killer Yoyo is likely to be wielded by a BadassAdorable or a LittleMissBadass, if the writer is playing up the "deadly yet cute" aspect of this trope.

* ''CrossboneGundam'' has the Quavarze, which uses a [[LaserBlade beam saw]] mounted on the end of a "chain" of whip-like segments; again, not exactly a yoyo, but close enough.

They also count as sword chips, making them useful against the Shadow viruses.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[http://www.hasbrostudios.com/shows/page/title/blazing-team Blazing Team]]'' is an entire series built on this.
* The main weapon of Ladybug in ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug''. At times, it seems to have an absurdly long string; she can even use it for [[SpiderMan Spidey]]-style BuildingSwing[=ing=].

* ''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 SukebanDeka.

* An article in ''Pyramid'' magazine had a 'Delinquent Schoolgirl Cop' archetype (an obvious homage to ''SukebanDeka'') for the ''TabletopGame/FengShui'' role-playing game. One of the weapon choices available for the character was the combat yoyo.

* Saki Asamiya in ''SukebanDeka'' was armed with a special metal yo-yo, which became her signature weapon -- so much so that it's an integral element in the logo for the 2006 LiveActionAdaptation (now available in the United States under the title ''Yo-Yo Girl Cop'').

* Akashiya Moka flings a yo-yo at a Tengu-masked thug during their field trip to the human world in ''[[RosarioToVampire Rosario + Vampire]]'' season 2. The yo-yo cracks the mask in half to reveal a face that is nearly identical.
