Sherlock Holmes/Hound

  • Casual Danger Dialogue: Even in the troughs of danger, he never loses his stoic, sarcastic demeanor. Only if things get really bad will you see him break a sweat.
  • Dub Name Change: In the English version, his last name is Hound.
  • Great Detective: Well, this is pretty obvious.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Hound is almost constantly seen with his tobacco pipe. It also comes in handy during emergencies.

Dr. Watson

Mrs. Hudson

  • Action Girl: Whenever an episode involves her friends from the aerodrome, expect her to spring into action.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: In the original stories, Mrs Hudson is elderly. Here, she's an attractive young widow.
  • Badass Driver: Give her control of a powerful sports car. She'll manage to drive the car through fences and fair turf, across the tracks of a speeding train (with a very panicked engine crew looking on), skip the same car down an embankment once across the tracks and smack through a river, catch up to a damaged plane in order to save the occupants, and then cause the car to jump from one Dover cliff to another so that the plane's occupants can bail out of the plane and into the car, and then land and stop the car on the edge of the last cliff without anyone falling out of the car. Oh, by the way, we didn't mention that the sports car did NOT have seatbelts or a back seat!
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Whatever you do, do NOT try to wreck her friend's plane midflight. Moriarty finds out how dangerous she can get the hard way.
  • First-Name Basis: Her friends from the aerodrome call her by her given name, Marie.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: She won't kill you, but she's a good enough shot to knock out an airplane's engine from the seat of a speeding race car. She can also Shoot the Rope with Watson's revolver.
  • Improbable Piloting Skills: Mrs. Hudson is a great pilot and can dodge machine-gun fire. No surprise if she's already able to outperform everyone at driving...
  • Tragic Keepsake: Her late husband's photograph is all she has left of him.

Inspector Lestrade

  • Accidental Truth: In the final episode, Lestrade hypothesizes that a missing bride simply fell in love with another man. At the end of the episode, Hound admits that Lestrade was actually correct the whole time despite having no evidence of the bride's feelings for a foreign prince!
  • Inspector Lestrade: What Sherlock Holmes adaptation would be complete without him?
  • Lemming Cops: Goodness, several times Lestrade and his men will do this while chasing Moriarty. It gets worse if enough of them actually catch up to Moriarty at the latter's expense (at least two of his vehicles got wrecked by police interference).
  • Police are Useless: He's not totally useless, but he uses rather primitive methods to solve cases.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: He won't allow crooks to get away easily. Even though Moriarty escapes from Lestrade all the time, Lestrade's stubbornness forces Moriarty to use LOTS of effort to shake him off. Not even a considerable height between the roof of a police van and Moriarty's get-away balloon will prevent Lestrade from latching onto said balloon.


Professor Moriarty

  • Bad Boss: He's not always reasonable and will nearly kill his own goons from time to time.
  • Big Bad: He is the villain in practically every episode.
  • Chikao Ohtsuka: He was voiced by him.
  • Cut Lex Luthor a Check: Moriarty could have made quite the fortune if he didn't make all his fancy inventions for criminal use. Worse, he thinks nobody would appreciate his talent if he weren't a criminal mastermind.
  • Dastardly Whiplash: Suit, cape, top hat, and mustache. Yup.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Evil Laugh included.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: Moriarty may have guns, but he'll never be able to hurt heroes with them. A bunch of kids with slingshots could easily defeat him at spitting distance.
  • Large Ham: See for yourself! His plans are overly dramatic, overly complicated, and involve lots of screen-time.

Todd and Smiley

  • Dumbass Has a Point: Both Todd and Smiley wish that their boss came up with a simple plan. They also note that Moriarty's intelligence would have been better used for a legitimate career.
  • Fat and Skinny: Todd is the short, stout one and Smiley is the tall, lanky one.

How well does it match the trope?
