* BatmanGambit: In ''The Rival Gang'', it turns out that [[spoiler: the titular rival gang operating right in Poirot's neighborhood is just a bunch of disguised members of the syndicate there to distract him from their real smuggling operations]].

They even attack his friend twice to deflect his interest. The gambit fails.

Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: As outlined by Poirot early on, the London Syndicate will not stoop to murder. Anything else is fair game, though.

Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: If you decide to mess with Hastings, Poirot will not be happy. He even ''[[NonActionGuy gets into a physical fight]]'' during the events of ''The Rival Gang'' to try to protect him.
** As ''Absent Without Leave'' shows, these sentiments are reciprocated entirely.
--> '''Hastings''' (addressed to [[spoiler: Poirot's kidnappers]] after rescuing his friend): You have no idea how fortunate you are that my hands are now unable to fasten themselves around your worthless neck!

[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11292256/1/The-London-Syndicate The London Syndicate]] is a fanfiction by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/6752671/en-verite en verite]] on Website/FanFictionDotNet featuring [[Creator/AgathaChristie Agatha Christie's]] Literature/HerculePoirot and some of his more notable associates as they take on the titular organization. It's told as several short but closely-related short stories. For the most part, it sticks to being an OriginalFlavor fic which could conceivably have been written by Dame Agatha herself, though as the summary relates, the syndicate is unusually preoccupied with keeping the great detective out of their hair...
