* LongRunner. Actually, the words "long runner" ''completely'' fail to express how mind-bogglingly LONG this series is. At 1597 chapters (so far), it is the single longest-running manga ever made.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: When Ryotsu's mind is fixed on something, or when he (or any of his friends) is in real danger, he becomes extremely competent, demonstrating almost superhuman strength, endurance and cunning. At work, well, he's just a ne'er-do-well... though apparently he has [[WordOfGod the highest criminal-catching count of the Police Station]]. Also, bipolar motorcycle policeman Honda; he's usually a well-manered, wimpish, slightly affeminate guy, but [[BadassBiker once he gets on his bike...]]

* {{Flanderization}}: At first, Nakagawa was more of a polite, well-manered Ryotsu {{fanboy}} that had his moments of crazyness that prompted ''Ryotsu'' to act as the voice of reason. Eventually, Nakagawa became basically "male Akimoto", acting almost exclusively as a straight foil to Ryotsu (with a twist: while Nakagawa is the "straight man" and Ryotsu is the "loon", Ryotsu is a senior to Nakagawa and is very much respected by the latter).

* ThoseTwoGuys: Tonpai Toda and Chinkichi Chida are two childhood friends of Ryotsu Kankichi that often join the young Ryotsu on his adventures. They mostly appear only in Ryotsu's childhood flashbacks, but do show up occasionly in the present day for a few episodes. One notable example being the three of them visiting their old school before its demolition and meeting with a girl who strongly resembles their now deceased childhood classmate who is revealed to be said classmate's daughter.

* GagDub: Indonesian's dub is this. The whole character, places, and accents were changed not to localized the dub, but to deal with the hard to translate jokes and add the whole new charm.

* TheGunslinger: Believe it or not, Ryotsu, of the quick draw variety. This was showcased in a very early manga chapter; as even unholstering one's service weapon is a major incident for a Japanese police officer, this aspect of him is not shown in the TV series.
