* RakeTake: Happens to Tintin himself, but actually works to his advantage: As he is Müller's chauffeur Ivan with a gun, he steps on a rake, but as he is hit by it, he accidentally fires and shoots Ivan's hat off, scaring him into submission. Then when Ivan realizes that Tintin has been knocked out and approaches him, Tintin wakes up and uses the rake to knock ''him'' out.

* BreakoutVillain: Dr. Müller is just one member of the gang of counterfeiters, though he probably has the most screentime. Despite this he is the only one to return in future stories and is even the BigBad in ''[[Recap/TintinLandOfBlackGold Land of Black Gold]]î''.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: In the original 1930s version of the story, Tintin is shocked to enter a room and discover the source of the noises he heard is "...a television set!?!" It looks quite HilariousInHindsight to later readers, which is probably why the 1960s reprinting changed his line to "It's only a television set!" (See below.)

* ShoutOut: Ranko the KillerGorilla was inspired by ''Film/KingKong'' (1933), which ran in theaters around the time Hergé drew this comic book story in theaters.

* TheSixties: An odd example; the story was originally written for ''Le Petit Vingtième'' in the late 1930s but when the English translation was colourised in 1966 it was also ''modernised'' - hence the cars and trains all come from the 60's and why Tintin is not at all surprised to see a TV. The [[Recap/TintinTheBrokenEar two]] [[Recap/TintinKingOttokarsSceptre stories]] surrounding it are clearly still set in the 30's meaning that ''The Black Island'' can come across as jarring to a reader going through the stories in chronological order. It also means that Dr. Müller (originally ANaziByAnyOtherName) can come across as Eastern Bloc agent instead.
