* TookALevelInJerkass: Dawson is portrayed as much more of an outright villain than he was in his debut, where he generally stayed in the confines of the law while trying to catch Tintin. Here, he decides to have Tintin blown up based purely off a second-hand report of him skulking around Dawson's weapons warehouse.

* Marquis di Gorgonzola, a CorruptCorporateExecutive, seems to have behind-the-scenes involvement in many of the recent events. His main plan however is reviving an illegal slave trade operation by abducting pilgrims to Mecca and selling them. The Marquis is actually Roberto Rastapopoulos, mastermind behind a supposedly defunct crime syndicate ([[Recap/TintinCigarsOfThePharoah Cigars of the Pharaoh]], [[Recap/TintinTheBlueLotus The Blue Lotus]]).

* ContrivedCoincidence: As per usual for this series -- [[spoiler:the airplane Tintin and Haddock are on crashes due to an engine fire, saving their lives when a TimeBomb in the hold explodes. A freak wave puts out the fire threatening to blow up the ship's cargo of explosives. Haddock drops the anchor, knocking out the frogman attempting to put a limpet mine on their hull.]] The trope is lampshaded at the beginning of the story, when our heroes ([[CrashIntoHello literally]]) bump into General Alcazar moments after discussing him (and right after Haddock was complaining how ridiculous the trope is).
