* GenreBlind: Crewing out a ship for a secret mission in search of buried treasure, the characters hire a one-legged, tattooed old sea-dog with a Bristol accent and a parrot. But then, [[UnbuiltTrope the book was what made all these traits stock attributes of pirates in the first place.]] Jim Hawkins still might have known better since he was specifically warned by Billy Bones to beware of "a one-legged sea-faring man"-- they just [[IdiotBall decide he couldn't possibly have meant this particular one-legged sea-faring man]].
