* EasilyForgiven: Despite making attempts on Asterix, Edifis, and even Cleopatra's life, Edifis reconciles with him.
**[[FridgeLogic Since the root of Artifis and Edifis's conflict is his cruel treatment of slaves, perhaps Edifis forgave him because Artifis was enslaved briefly and learned how hard a slave's life was.]]

* To be fair, her actual point wasn't exactly hypocritical, since she was calling out Caesar actively trying to prevent her side from fulfilling her side of the bet. Given Caesar's display of pride and arrogance throughout the book, one gets the idea that he would've launched this sabotage attack anyway even if the Egyptians did somehow manage to do the job quickly on their own (quality would still not have been great, but Caesar was more concerned about their meeting the deadline).

** In [[WesternAnimation/TheTwelveTasksOfAsterix The Twelve Tasks Of Asterix]], it turns out that he is also a superb fencer and swordsman (even though his carriers do the footwork; but that again implies good teamwork), besting a gladiator in a bout without ever resorting to the potion-induced super strength.



* TooImportantToWalk: He's held up on a shield by two Gauls. Unfortunately for his image, he ends up falling off for one reason or another (the main one being that the carriers are ''two different sizes'').

* SparedByTheAdaptation: Averted. It's subtle, but the reader is constantly reminded that Brutus ''will'' kill Caesar no matter what, even if he finds out about Brutus' treachery early on. Since the series takes place ''before'' 44 BC, he just cannot die here.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: Just about every one of his appearances reminds us that he ''will'' kill Caesar (though not in the series).
