* Our heroes also get their Woobie moments:
** Tintin during all of ''Tintin in the Tibet'', and how during many moments in the story he almost loses hope of ever finding Tchang.

** Snowy when he gets his leg broken by Jorgen in ''Explorers on the Moon''.


** The Incans themselves could be considered Woobies, if you look at them/their actions through another perspective. They're wary of foreigners due to the Spanish conquest centuries ago and how it almost wiped out their people and culture, so any "extreme" action they may do in this book is just a way to preserve their culture from being "again" destroyed by foreigners. It's maybe not justified, but understandable.
