* GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion: As with most Tintin albums from the 1930s this one too was redrawn and colored in. Most of the story remained intact, save for a scene where Tintin has a NightmareSequence in which an Amazonian Indian blows a poison dart at him while sleeping. The scene was perhaps to reminscent to a similar nightmare sequence in ''The Seven Crystal Balls''.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: This is the last book in the series where Tintin spends the whole storyline working by himself, with no assistance from any of the other recurring characters (unless you count Ridgewell). While Thomson and Thompson put in a brief appearance early on, it only lasts for two pages and could have been filled by any generic police officer(s).

* PunnyName: 'Korrupt Arms'. The ''Gran Chapo War'' is a pun on the Gran Chaco War (1932-1935) between Bolivia and Paraguay over the oil fields in the Gran Chaco region and the French word ''grand chapeau'' (''big hat''). The name Nuevo Rico is a pun on ''nouveau riche'' and its capital ''Sanfacion'' on ''sans façon'' (''without manners'').
* RippedFromTheHeadlines: The war between San Theodoros and Nuevo-Rico was based on the then very recent [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gran_Chaco_War Gran Chaco War]], which was indeed engineered by oil and arms companies on the promise of oil that turned out to be nonexistent.

* WronglyAccused: The Arumbayas are considered by outsiders to be savage killers, but this is likely due to people confusing them with their rivals the Rumbabas, who more than live up to the stereotype.

Having had a run in with the crooks Ramon and Alonso (also on the elusive trail of the real fetish) Tintin takes ship for the troubled South American republic of San Theodoros where he ends up caught up in a revolution and the intriuges that follow before he finally manages to track down the Arumbayas. Unfortunately Ramon and Alonso are still after the fetish and are fully willing to kill to lay their hands on it.

* ArchEnemy: The Arumbayas are friendly and civilized folks, but they have a long-running feud with the Rumbabas, another native tribe who are savage killers.



* CompositeCharacter: The Nelvana adaptation combines the characters of Rodrigo Tortilla and Lopez. Rodrigo Lopez not only steals the Heart of the Jungle and hides it in the idol, but he is also the one to steal it from the museum.



* TheGhost: General Tapioca and Tortilla.

* TheGhost: General Tapioca and Tortilla. Subverted by Lopez in the Nelvana cartoon, who does not appear on-panel in the book but appears during a flashback in the adaptation.



* PragmaticAdaptation: The animated version removes the character of Ramon Tortilla from the story and has Lopez be not only the one to steal the fetish from the Arumbayas, but also to tell Ramon and Alonzo about it. This makes the story a little easier to follow.

* PosthumousCharacter: Lopez and Captain Walker die long before the story takes place.
* PragmaticAdaptation: The animated version removes the character of Ramon Tortilla from the story and has Lopez be not only the one to steal the fetish from the Arumbayas, but also to tell Ramon and Alonzo about it. This makes the story a little easier to follow. The subplots involving Colonel Diaz, the war between San Theodoros and Nuevo Rico and the Rumbabas are also dropped.



* WhatDidIDoLastNight: Tintin is rather confused as to how he became a colonel, having been too drunk to remember the events of the previous day.
