Holmes & Yoyo contains examples of:

  • Androids and Detectives: One of the earliest TV examples.
  • Name and Name: Holmes and Yoyo are the main characters last name and nickname respectively.
  • Lethal Klutz: Downplayed with Holmes; having injured so many of his partners simply because of his clumsiness, this is why his superiors decided to pair him with Yoyo.
  • Photographic Memory: Yoyo not only has a literally photographic memory, he can even make prints of it. Push his nose and a polaroid pops out of his breast pocket. Strangely enough he does not seem able to access an image in memory, he has to print it out and look at it with his eyes even if it's just to verify that he's seen something.
  • Super Cop: Yoyo, who has all kinds of robotic powers.
  • Wunza Plot: One's a human cop. One's an experimental robot cop. They fight crime!
