* HoYay: Tintin and the Captain, and less obviously, Tintin and Chang from ''The Blue Lotus'' and ''Tintin in Tibet''.

* HoYay: HoYay:
** 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.

Hmm. Must be all the endangering and tied-up situations they get involved 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.

*** In Europe they did sell the Congo and Soviets alongside the other books in bookshops though.

*** In Europe they did sell the Congo and Soviets albums alongside the other books in bookshops though.though. But rather, they sold the whole Tintin collection apart from the kid's section, so...

Added DiffLines:

* AmericansHateTingle: While not outright hated, and in fact many people interested in comic books would know about it, Tintin never made the big scene in North America compared to Europe and other continents. In the USA it's considered more of a niche thing rather than the big cultural impact it is in Europe. It's probably due to the fact that in the USA comic books are mostly known for either being comic strips or being about superheroes, so Tintin rather feels out of place.

** It happens on almost every country that Tintin has been to. Peruvians adore the Temple of the Sun storyline for portraying their country and the Incan culture mostly accurate and not romanticizing the spanish conquista. Similarly, Tintin is also liked a lot in China and Tibet.


Added DiffLines:

* ValuesResonance: On the other hand, while the stories are old and filled with antique prejudices of the era, a lot of the messages found in them can also be found engaging and relevant today:
** The criticism of Japan's invasion of China in ''The Blue Lotus''.
** 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.
** And in general, after the stories of Congo and America, Herge just put a lot more of research into his stories, making the world and characters come off as unique and realistic. Considering how many modern authors nowadays barely do a thing of research and leave their token characters to be mere stereotypes, that is more impressive to consider.

* BadassDecay: Emir Ben Kalish Ezab suffered from this in the Nelvana series. The comic version of the Emir did sometimes get emotional about things regarding his son, but was otherwise a guy who you definitely wouldn't want to mess with. The animated version on the other hand was such a simpering crybaby that it was frankly amazing that Bab El Ehr hadn't managed to overthrow him already.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zb-9TIr31i0 The main theme]]. It remained so iconic, especially in Europe, that Music/JohnWilliams' theme from the [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin film]] received rather unfavorable comparisons to it and is generally considered as much less memorable.
* MemeticMutation: Tintin [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDRqtA8L3pA remembering what number comes after 15]].
