to:

* Throughout the book Haddock is more of an annoyance than help to Tintin. On the other hand, [[DragonInChief Allan]] has a rather fearsome presence, who knocks his underlings out in [[OneHitKO just one punch]] when they [[BearerOfBadNews bring bad news]] or [[YouHaveFailedMe fail him]]. In the climax, when Tintin, Haddock and Snowy get drunk on fumes, Allan and his men decide to dispose off the miscreants. Haddock accidentally spills alcohol all over Tom's face annoying him and he snatches the bottle out of his hand. This sobers him up good and he starts beating up both Tom and another guy who had him. Allan decides to put the captain in his place. An offscreen fight is heard, cut to a [[CurbStompBattle beaten and bruised Allan]] been thrown across the room, with a victorious Captain Haddock, without a single scratch emerging with a bottle in his hand [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge screaming for revenge]]. Even the bottle is unharmed, meaning he probably beat up Allan barehanded.


* The four-part story arc that comprises ''Destination Moon'' and ''Explorers on the Moon'', because of its complex plot and all the action and danger, especially when it's revealed just what Professor Calculus can do.
** Oh, that and the little old man manages to shout down ''Captain Haddock'' of all people after being told he was "acting the goat", ''forcibly drag him'' into a restricted area after he ''frightens the security guards out of his way and hangs the security chief on a coat hanger'', bundles him into a jeep, takes him up to a high point, despite not knowing how to drive, and says to him, firmly "LOOK AT WHAT 'THE GOAT' CREATED!", all because he's had enough of the man's constant ranting. It even continues into the rocket, where he furiously berates Haddock for [[NoOSHACompliance standing too close to the hole leading to the lower deck]]. Becomes a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} when Calculus [[HypocriticalHumor falls down a hole leading to a lower deck,]] [[ComedicSociopathy causing him to lose his memory]]. [[OhCrap This becomes a problem later.]]
