Yes

Breaststroke arms and fly legs : focus on correct arm action, head position and wave motion with body

Two kicks one pull

Mini pull - as small as possible so as to get to streamline as quickly as possible

Minimum strokes per length - see how long you can hold your glide. I have met people who can do a 25m length in three or four strokes. My best is six. Any tiny lack of balance or symmetry will show up as you slow down

Maximum strokes per length - try out your racing stroke and try to retain form

No doubt there are dozens of others.

In addition to the drills Richard mentioned, I also like to practice my breast kick while on my back. It's a way to experiment with maximizing propulsion from the kick without having to deal with breathing.
