*** Note that ''The Blue Lotus'' came out during the brutal invasion and occupation of China by Imperial Japan. As such, that unflattering depiction is a scathing indictment of Japanese imperialism of the times and no different from similar depictions of Nazi Germany. For comparison, in the ''The Crab with the Golden Claws'', there is a sympathetic Japanese character, who appears in the very beginning and the very end, who is not caricatured and is not a JerkAss of any sort, nor is he aligned with Imperial Japan.

** The ending scene from ''Tintin and The Blue Lotus'' where the Japan withdrew from League of Nations along with its mistreatment of Chinese became a ForegoneConclusion to its entry in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII along with later years of UsefulNotes/SecondSinoJapaneseWar when reading it now.

* FreudWasRight: Any scholarly or academic analysis of the series draws heavily on Freud and psychoanalysis in general... and will claim that just about everything is a sexual metaphor.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff[=/=]AmericansHateTingle: Once the colonialist propaganda was [[CanonDiscontinuity excised from later editions of]] ''Tintin in the Congo'', it actually became popular in parts of Francophone Africa, most egregiously, ''in former Belgian Congo itself''. (Those caricatured natives? Obviously they represent that other tribe; [[ValuesDissonance Tribe A is often perfectly fine with mocking Tribe B, vice versa, and they're both often fine with mocking Tribe C]].) However, others don't see the editing as enough.

** Among French commentators, Captain Haddock's bandaid in ''The Calculus Affair'' is sometimes used as a comparison to any particularly sticky scandal that may plague a politician and that just won't go away.
