*** The main reason for the representations of the normal Chinese and caricatural Japanese in ''Blue Lotus'' was due to a Chinese student offering to help Hergé with his research precisely because he was afraid of the stereotyping being as bad as ''Congo''. Hergé put him in the story as Tchang in thanks.

** In ''The Blue Lotus'' the Japanese are depicted as being an oppressive and militaristic force of evil, while the Chinese are portrayed in a generally very positive and wholesome manner. Nowadays, most writers would likely have the two swapped around.

** Tintin's relationship with Captain Haddock gives many readers this impression. Neither character shows any interest in women throughout the series (Haddock actively prefers to avoid the company of women, and states this repeatedly), and as soon as Haddock is restored to Marlinspike Manor,
Tintin immediately moves in with him, and the Captain, and lives there thereafter.

* EstrogenBrigade: There's quite a large female fandom of these comics, and while many enjoy the adventures and comedy, others have admitted to find [[TheAce Tintin]] and [[SilverFox the Captain]] rather swoon-worthy. Hmm. Must be all the endangering situations they get in.

** While the Captain's alcoholism was often treated as a joke, it was also shown as a burden for the characters in their adventures, and a part of Haddock's development throughout the series is to learn to not be so dependent on the drink.
** Portraying the Incas and their descendants as rightfully wary of foreigners due to the past with the Spaniards, and criticizing the exploitation Europeans have done on Peru and its rich culture in ''The Seven Crystal Balls''/''Prisoners of the Sun''. It's exemplified the best in the scene that opens the first book, where the gentleman sitting next to Tintin calls out the desecration of Rascar Capac's tomb, and latter the scene where Tintin saves Zorrino from being bullied by two presumably Spaniard men.
** Believing in the Roma's innocence and not supporting the Thompson's racist accusations in "The Castafiore Emerald".
** Not caring for either Alcazar or Tapioca's regime, since at the end of the day both leaders still abandon the poorer sections of the population to cater to their own whims and to the richer classes.
