* ConfrontingYourImposter: [[MasterOfDisguise Doctor Disguise]] impersonates several people while trying to escape from Hong Kong Phooey. Phooey is confused when Disguise impersonates Penrod Pooch because he ''is'' Penrod Pooch. Phooey decides to let the villain become Penrod while he becomes Hong Kong Phooey full time but [[HyperCompetentSidekick Spot]] uses the villain's device to revert him to his real form with prison clothes instead of the regular outfit he's seen wearing while not disguised. Phooey just thinks the villain decided to surrender once hearing his name.

* RightForTheWrongReasons: One episode features a criminal who can become invisible and uses this power to steal a set of rare rings. The last two rings belong to people who live in Genova and Rosemary believes the first owner whose ring the thief will steal is the opera singer because even criminals follow the "ladies first" policy. The singer's ring is indeed the first of the last two the criminal steals but that's because [[spoiler:the other ring already belongs to the criminal]].

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: When a criminal disguises himself as Hong Kong Phooey to claim the rewards offered to the real one, the viewers can always tell who's who because the real one wears a red kimono and the false one wears a black one.

HannaBarbera produced this AnimatedSeries for Creator/{{ABC}} in 1974 as a response to the martial arts fad of that time, especially the AdventureSeries ''KungFu''.

*** In another, he got out without help by using the middle drawer. (The cabinet has three drawers: Penrod usually enters through the top one and HKP leaves through the low one) Then he somehow fell into it and Spot had to help him as usual.

* FakeUltimateHero: As mentioned, Spot always does the work, and Hong Kong Phooey takes all of the credit. It shows just how brainless he really is. He's not doing this maliciously, mind you; he actually believes he won all on his own and never notices Spot's help. Moreover, ''neither does anyone else watching the fight, including the criminals he defeats.'' Luckily, Spot doesn't seem to mind much that Phooey gets all the credit, which makes sense, given his established reputation as the city's "hero" and that he wouldn't want to ruin that.

* DudeWhere'sMyRespect: Poor Spot. You can't help but feel bad for him because he saves the day and his master just reads stupid Chinese sayings.
