Added DiffLines:

* CrossOver: a partial example with Creator/PeterLorre's similar character, the Japanese secret agent Mr. Moto. ''Mr. Moto's Gamble'' was originally intended to be a Charlie Chan movie, after Werner Oland died partway through filming, the script was [[DolledUpInstallment hastily rewritten]] as a Moto vehicle. As a result, Chan's Number One Son appears in a supporting role as a student of Mr. Moto, desperately seeking education as a detective in order to please his father (who is never referred to by name).

* CoolCar[=/=]TransformingMecha: The Creator/HannaBarbera cartoon featured "the Chan Van", a vehicle which could transform itself into various modes of transportation from van to station wagon to sports car, ''etc.'', at the push of a button. (It makes one mildly uncomfortable to recall that it shared this trait with HongKongPhooey's Phooeymobile, though the canine crime-fighter used a gong to trigger the change.)

Added DiffLines:

* ProverbialWisdom: Chan is a smart detective with a definite aura of "oriental wisdom" around him (including, most notably, speaking in Eastern proverbs and aphorisms).

** Then, with now-defunct ComicBook publisher ''Prize Comics'', drawn by none other than Creator/JackKirby and Joe Simon, otherwise known as the creators of CaptainAmerica. When Prize lost the license, the series transferred to CharltonComics, continuing the same numbering.

** First, as a NewspaperComic that ran from 1938-42 (it was cancelled because the white readers didn't want an Asian in the funnies... even though during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII [[ViewersAreMorons the Chinese were on the Allied side]]).

Added DiffLines:

* InvisibleWriting: One mystery ''Charlie Chan in Shanghai'' has some writing on a piece of linen. The glyphs appear to be Chinese, but Chan declares them as gibberish. He then points out that, despite plenty of writing paper available, the marks were made on cloth. Chan rinses the linen in a bowl of water, which washes away some of the ink, but leaves the true message in broken Roman letters intact.
