* Many linguists today date the Proto-Germanic sound shift known as Grimm's law (p, t, k > f, þ, x; b, d, g > p, t, k; bh, dh, gh > b, d, g) no earlier than 100 BC. If this is correct, it is a CMOA that Getafix never says the wrong word by accident in ''Asterix and the Goths''. He'd have had to learn the language all over again, after all.

* ''Astérix and the Chariot Race'': Mount Vesuvius erupts, sending a huge boulder crashing onto the road. Obélix, who's had it up to here with [[RunningGag the deplorable state of Roman roads]], grabs the boulder and throws it right back, plugging the volcano so effectively the narration states it won't be heard about until Pompeii gets buried.

** In one of the early tasks, Asterix and Obelix have to confront Cilindric the German, a gladiator known to be invincible even in spite of his small stature. Obelix of course decides to deal with him alone... And, for the first and only time in the entire series, not only [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable Obelix is defeated in combat]], but it's a ''CurbStompBattle''. Turns out that [[UnskilledButStrong Obelix' immense strength]] is no match for UsefulNotes/Judo...
*** And Judo is no match for Asterix' ''brain'', as he doesn't even wait for Cilindric to be finished with Obelix to talk him into teaching him... And immobilizes him HumanKnot style ''following his instructions'', [[ExplainExplainOhCrap much to Cilindric's horror when his explanation leads him to realize he's been beaten]].
*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNSk9XNF_Gc The battle in all its glory]].

* In ''Asterix and the Flying Carpet'', Cacofonix brought a drought to end, saving a princess in the process, by ''singing''

** This bit could use some clarifying. The princess was of India and it was due time for the Monsoon, only it wasn't coming. Short story, unless the rain would come of its own volition, the princess would be sacrificed, leaving the way open for a certain evil figure to ascend the throne. But the Indians had heard of a man whose voice could cause rain. In other words, by being a lousy musician, Cacofonix is ''already a legendary musician''. And when he sings this time, ''everyone enjoys it with glee''.

** In yet another Task from that movie, Asterix and Obelix are challenged with eating everything put before them by the Great Chef of the Titans. A menu that includes: a cooked flock of geese, a herd of lamb, a full school of fish, a fully roasted ox, a cow, veal (because separating families wouldn't be right), a camel, a mountain of caviar (with one piece of toast), and an elephant. A whole elephant. One GilliganCut later, the Chef bemoans the emptiness of his kitchen, while [[BigEater Obelix]] is asking why he left before serving the main course.
---> '''Obelix:''' Did anyone see where the chef went? He walked out and I only have me starters.

** The guys were sent to Rome to steal Caesar's laurel wrath, so that Vitalstatistix can use it for cooking. ''They succeed''.

** In another Task in the same movie, Asterix cleverly deals with the unhelpful [[ObstructiveBureaucrat Bureaucrats of the House That Drives You Mad]] [[spoiler: (Obelix himself almost goes insane) by fast-talking a couple of desk clerks into looking for a document that doesn't exist, which causes a chain reaction to the other office workers leaving their posts to look for it throughout their own insanity-causing maze of a building. Thanks to Asterix's plan of using their own attitude against them, the entire building's workforce ends up running around, mad as hatters.]]
