* InformedAbility: Tintin notes that Max Bird is the more dangerous of the Bird brothers at one point. There isn't really much to back this up at that point, and in fact, it's Gustav who held him at gunpoint and almost shot him from behind mere minutes before.

Max's comparative dangerousness is made more explicit in the Nelvana series, where Max is always the one holding the gun while Gustav cowers behind him.

In the year 1676, the Unicorn had left Barbados to set sail for home when it was intercepted by pirate ship captained by the ruthless Red Rackham. After a fierce battle, Haddock finds himself captured and the sole survivor of the ''Unicorn's'' crew. Since his pirate ship is heavily damaged, Rackham orders all of its cargo to be loaded onto the ''Unicorn'', including a chest full of precious gems plundered off a Spanish ship. While the pirates get drunk during the night, Haddock slips away and lights a fuse to the powder kegs in the hold, though he is interrupted by Rackham himself. After a tense battle, Haddock kills Rackham and escapes just in time to escape the explosion. Haddock made his way back home and built three identical models of the ''Unicorn'', each bequeathed to his three sons. According to the diary, if the mast of each is moved, "the truth will come out". Tintin concludes that the parchment he found is what Haddock meant and that it's one of the three keys to finding Red Rackham's treasure. Unfortunately he then notices that his wallet was stolen (Tintin's having the worst day). Tintin and Haddock then make their way to Sakharine's place to look at the second parchment and find him chloroformed on the floor, the mast of his model broken and the parchment gone: clearly Tintin and Haddock are not the only ones looking for the treasure.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In the original French, the name of Captain Haddock's ancestor is Chevalier François de Hadoque. Francophone readers have theorized that this Haddock family left England because they supported the Stuarts during the English Civil War and James II after the Glorious Revolution and for a time [[ThisIsMyNameOnForeign gave their name a French spelling]] before reverting back to the original English one.

Along with ''[[Recap/TintinTheCrabWithTheGoldenClaws The Crab with the Golden Claws]]'', it is the basis for most of the plot of Creator/StevenSpielberg's [[Film/TheAdventuresOfTintin 2011 film adaptation]].
