* RecycledScript: Some of Poirot's adventures are so good, other characters copy them.

* RecycledScript: Some of Poirot's adventures are so good, other characters copy them. Done by Poirot himself in "The Plymouth Express" and "Mystery of the Blue Train".


Added DiffLines:

** Plus the accusations were being spread by a seedy tabloid newspaper, so it's not as if [[AssholeVictim they were on the up and up either]].

* WereStillRelevantDammit: ''Third Girl'' attempts to deal with Swinging London youth culture, to somewhat questionable effect.

* OldShame: Believe it or not, Poirot was this for Creature/AgathaChristie, who got tired of writing his novels, describing him in 1930 as "insufferable" and in 1960 as a "detestable, bombastic, tiresome, ego-centric little creep". However, since she saw how popular the character was, she felt the obligation to continue giving his fans more Poirot stories, which she did until 1975, one year before her death.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeEgo: Poirot constantly praises his own intelligence. Christie eventually came to find it annoying, but the fans didn't. He really ''is'' very smart, and he also says that his boasting serves to throw people off, because the English believe that "a fellow who thinks as much of himself as that cannot be worth much."
