* WholesomeCrossdresser: [[JohnnyDepp Johnny Depp's]] attraction to eyeliner didn't start with [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack Sparrow]] - during his time on this show, he was undercover in drag in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4bJr_gY2E0#t=4m34 In the Custody of a Clown]]" and looked far too convincing.

* ShotInTheAss: Happens to Hanson in "The Dragon and the Angel". Even worse, it turns out to be Penhall's fault.

* ShowerOfAngst: In one episode, a pastor's son feels so ashamed of touching a girl in his teen Bible study group that he goes into the river and frantically tries to "baptize" himself to wash away his sin. ** In another episode, Officer Hoffs plays this trope straight when one of the characters in the case she was working on rapes her.

* TeacherStudentRomance: Happens with [[GirlOfTheWeek almost disturbing frequency.]] It helps that Johnny Depp's character was in his [[OlderThanTheyLook mid-twenties]], not actually a student, and in the most [[{{Egregious}} egregious]] example, met before he was actually assigned to her school. ** For bonus points, this happens in an episode that frequently mentions VanHalen.

[[ChocolateBaby Considering that both the student and teacher were white, if she'd had the baby it would probably have been evident that Ioki was not the father.]]

Can we keep the show and the movie separate, please? They're very different versions.
A very well received [[Film/TwentyOneJumpStreet film "sequel"]] (in a completely different genre) has been released, starring Creator/JonahHill (who also co-wrote the script), Creator/ChanningTatum, [[TheUnitedStatesOfTara Brie Larson]], and Music/IceCube. Creator/JohnnyDepp and Peter [=DeLuise=] appear in cameos as their original-series characters, Tom Hanson and Doug Penhall. Holly Robinson Peete also returned as Judy Hoffs, in a slightly more substantial role. Due to the drastic difference in tone, the movie is not necessarily recommended for fans of the series.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Hanson and Ioki's departures between seasons 4 and 5 are never explained. [[spoiler: Hanson's is eventually explained in the movie, some 20 years later.]]

** The movie introduces a pretty big one years after the fact, where the Season 4 episode "Back From the Future" is concerned, since the episode shows the entire Jump Street squad alive and well as senior citizens, while [[spoiler:Hanson and Penhall are killed off in the movie]].

* StealthSequel: [[Film/TwentyOneJumpStreet The movie.]] ** [[spoiler:SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome]]: [[spoiler:Hanson and Penhall are shot up by One-Percenter bikers]].

Added Clip Show, Series Continuity Error, The Bus Came Back
Added DiffLines:
* TheBusCameBack: After Booker quits the force and is spun off into his own series, he returns midway through Season 4 for a two-part crossover between the two series.

Added DiffLines:
* ClipShow: "Back From the Future" uses a young cop 50 years in the future, interviewing the now elderly members of Jump Street about their glory days, as a framing device for this.

Added DiffLines:
** This becomes more prevalent as the later seasons progress, with most of the characters other than the one or two in the spotlight getting a mere MandatoryLine, if they appear at all. Johnny Depp - ostensibly still the star of the show - is absent more frequently than any other actor at this point.

Added DiffLines:
* SeriesContinuityError: The episode "Things We Said Today" has a minor one, at least if episodes are assumed to be set in the same year they aired. A flashback to the day of the Challenger Explosion in January 1986 shows Ioki working a case and the Jump Street squad commenting on Captain Fuller as if he were still new to the squad. The first episode of the series aired in April 1987; Captain Jenko was still in charge at that point and Hanson was just joining the squad. ** The movie introduces a pretty big one years after the fact, where the Season 4 episode "Back From the Future" is concerned, since the episode shows the entire Jump Street squad alive and well as senior citizens, while [[spoiler:Hanson and Penhall are killed off in the movie]].

** When a license plate is clearly visible, it says "Beautiful Evergreen State", which is the Washington state nickname, but with the British Columbia plate design.

Added DiffLines:
* VillainProtagonist: The 4th season episode "Mike's P.O.V." Unlike a typical episode where the crime is committed offscreen and we watch the Jump Street crew being briefed about the case and piecing together clues, everything is shown from the villain's perspective. We know from the beginning of the episode that Mike is the murderer, but since Hanson and Penhall function as secondary characters, we don't see the full details of how they manage to figure this out before arresting him.
