** Shortly after the two meet, Tintin is taken aback by Captain Haddock's horrible breath. Later on, [[spoiler:after Snowy
and ChekhovsGunman:Haddock consume a bottle of medicinal alcohol that Tintin wanted to use as fuel substitute for their crashing plane, this comes in handy as Haddock's breath alone contains enough alcohol to kick the plane into overdrive.]]


Added DiffLines:

* {{Flynning}}:
** Sir Francis Haddock's duel with Red Rakham. {{Justified}} since Rakham is more interested in putting out Haddock's PowderTrail, and Haddock is therefore more focused on preventing him from doing that.
** In the climax, Captain Haddock and [[spoiler:Sakharine]] do this [[spoiler:''[[ExaggeratedTrope with cranes]]'']].

* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: Not that it was a point of any real suspense in the comics, but Haddock's first name (Archibald) was not known until the final completed story, ''Tintin and the Picaros''. In the film, Haddock introduces himself right away with his full name.



* BestialityIsDepraved: During the scene where Tintin tries to recover some keys from a sleeping man, Haddock explains about some of his former crewmen. One of them was a shepherd once, but he was kicked out because of his "animal husbandry". [[{{Squick}} He's holding a struggling rat in that scene.]]



* CaughtWithYourPantsDown: Mentioned in this exchange when Tintin and Haddock first meet, when the drunken captain mistakes the young man for an assassin:
-->'''Haddock:''' So you thought you could sneak in behind me and catch me with my trousers down, eh?!\\
'''Tintin:''' I'd rather you kept your trousers on, if it's all the same to you.

** The official artbook has a concept painting of the inside of the ''Karaboudjan'' where a mermaid masthead from another ship has been tied to one of the support beams. There have been [[VisualPun lamps installed on her breasts]]... [[DontExplainTheJoke so, she has nice headlights]].
** It is implied that Sakharine slept with Bianca Castafiore: "Allow me to introduce my ''escort'': Monsiuer Shuggair Addeitiff. He's been very [beat] ''passionate'' in his support of this concert." The brief but distinctly uncomfortable look on Sakharine's face as she says it reveals even more....

* FriendsRentControl: Tintin owns a surprisingly upscale apartment for someone who works as a reporter. Then again, considering the recognition he gets (mentioned above) just when he goes out shopping, it's entirely possible that he's had several previous adventures that have made him rather high-profile.

** Tintin, in spades. This causes a sort of chain -- by leading him on this amazing adventure and never giving up Tintin inspires Haddock to stop drowning his sorrows and become a determinator as well, and so Haddock in turn re-inspires Tintin to take up the fight again when everything looks bleakest.

* TelevisionGeography: The film is set in a country whose currency is the pound and had a historical King Charles II, but several shops have French signs and cars drive on the right side of the road. (This is carried over from the English translation of the comic, which was originally set in Belgium and used francs and Louis XIV.) Other dubs of the movie revert these to francs and Louis XIV too.
