[[RippedFromTheHeadlines The real world frequently impinges upon the stories]], with many identifiable events from real life being presented with only a few slight changes of name, for example the [[UsefulNotes/TheChacoWar Grand Chapo (real life, Gran Chaco)]] war in ''The Broken Ear'', and the [[UsefulNotes/SecondSinoJapaneseWar Sino-Japanese war]] in ''The Blue Lotus''. World War II was hinted at less as Belgium was occupied by the Nazis. In this period, Hergé's stories are fanciful high-adventure yarns with no reference to war at all.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: While it later became an analogy for CommieLand, pre-war Borduria (''King Ottokar's Sceptre'') is clearly a fascist dictatorship, right down to using German built Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter planes. Dr. Müller (''The Black Island'' and others) and Dr. Krollspell (''Flight 714'') have also been suggested to be Nazis/ex-Nazis. Ironically, when the ''real'' Nazis occupied Belgium, they banned ''The Black Island'' because it was set in Britain, their enemy, while ''King Ottokar's Sceptre'' was still allowed, despite having an almost obvious Nazi-analogue.

** ''The Blue Lotus'': As mentioned above, Tintin is imprisoned after accidentally knocking off a guard. Three guards, the smaller of them something like thrice his size entered the cell to take revenge. Cue a scene with fighting noises followed by a haste trip to the hospital, where three said guards lie heavily battered.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Tintin is nominally a reporter, but after ''Land of the Soviets'' is never seen to do any actual reporting. The closest is a contemporary advert for the then-upcoming ''Secret Of The Unicorn'', in which Tintin is seen calling his editor to ask for time off and in ''Tintin and the Black Gold'' where he interviews the head of a company at the start of the story, yet without taking notes or recording his answers.

However, it's been suggested that the comics themselves are Tintin's reports.

* FunnyForeigner: Thompson and Thomson become this when they visit China. They put on [[OverlyStereotypicalDisguise ridiculously garish costumes]] and end up with a pointing and laughing crowd following them.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: In ''The Shooting Star'', the rival expedition is more than willing to sink to a lot of lows to sabotage the scientific one. During the race to the meteorite, when Tintin is parachuting onto the meteorite, a member takes out a gun to shoot him only for the person next to him to push it down and say "Have you gone mad?!"

He even threatens to cancel Arabair's flight route to his country, and expose their owner's involvement in slave trading, because they refused to heed his son's request... to have Arabair planes ''[[ImpossibleTask perform aerobatics before landing in Khemed]]''.
