* LighterAndSofter: The animated adaptations in comparison to the original comic book story. In at least the Remastered version of the 1990s animated series, Allan's crimes are changed from smuggling opium to smuggling diamonds. But, oddly, only in the second episode; the first episode is true to the comics by having Allan be involved in drug-smuggling, and despite the fact Allan appeared as part of the opium-smuggling ring in ''Cigars of the Pharoah''.

This is the first story that Hergé produced during the German occupation of Belgium (1940-1944) for the Brussels daily newspaper ''Le Soir'' ("The Evening"). During the occupation this leading French-language paper of Belgium had been handed over by the Germans to Belgian collaborators and thus was called ''Le Soir volé'' ("the stolen ''Soir''") by those who weren't collaborators. At first the instalments appeared in a weekly supplement for children, but the war paper-shortage meant that this kept getting smaller and smaller and by September 1941 it was discontinued entirely. From then on ''Tintin'' appeared as a small daily comic strip in the main pages of ''Le Soir''. ''The Crab with the Golden Claws'' was collected into a colour album. Later this version was slightly reworked at the behest of the American publishers to create the "definitive" one.

* FramedForHeroism: At one point, a raging Haddock charges ahead against a group of armed Bedouin raiders, who promptly run away. It turns out they were actually running away from the reinforcements arriving behind him.

* UnstoppableRage: Haddock gets truly pissed off when a band of Bedouin raiders firing at him shatter his bottle of whiskey. When Alan's men find Haddock and Tintin drunk and helpless (they were trapped in a wine cellar, and the bullets had spilled the booze) all it takes is another broken bottle to turn the tables.
