* 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.

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.

* ''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.
