Woobie / Tintin

The Tintin series is chock full of woobies.

  • Tchang, especially after his crashing in the Tibet.
  • Zorrino in Prisoners of the Sun.
  • The Indians who get kicked out of their land in Tintin in America.
  • Everyone who was given that madness-inducing poison in Cigars of the Pharaoh and The Blue Lotus. Especially Sarcophagus and the young man who developed an obsession with decapitation.
  • The seven members of the expedition in The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun, kept in a state of And I Must Scream by a xenophobic offshoot of the Incas.
  • Frank Wolff. Trapped into becoming The Mole because of his gambling debts, and is horrified to learn Colonel Boris' real objective. Ultimately sacrifices himself to get the others safely home.
  • The Gypsies in The Castafiore Emerald.
