* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: It often gets lost in the silliness, but he actually is one, and it's also the major source of his personal pride. Like Geriatric, he is very proud to have personally participated in the Battle of Gergovia, and he is also very proud to be independent from Rome. It becomes most apparent in ''Asterix and the Belgians'', where he, unlike virtually every other villager, is deeply offended that the Romans don't fear them as much as they used to, let alone less than somebody else and even sets out to correct this on his own when nobody else shows interest.

%%* {{Badass}}

to:

%%* {{Badass}}* {{Badass}}: One of the only Romans (and villains) who poses a credible threat thanks to his intellect.



%%* BigBad
%%* TheChessmaster

to:

%%* BigBad
%%* TheChessmaster
* BadBoss: He repays those who serve him well, but his zero tolerance for failure means that penalty for unsuccessful attempts is becoming lion toast.
* BigBad: The Roman Empire wouldn't have been on the village's threshold if it wasn't for him.
* TheChessmaster: With more pawns than it is usual and without getting into the chessboard himself of course.



%%* FailureIsTheOnlyOption

to:

%%* FailureIsTheOnlyOption* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: No matter what plans he concocts or how towed he has the rest of the world to his feet, there is no way he will ever dominate that village.



%%* GoldfishPoopGang

to:

%%* GoldfishPoopGang* GoldfishPoopGang: An accidental example since they never attempt to follow the Gauls and always happen to meet them by the cruelest of ironies.



* BadBoss: The whole reason that the Gauls make the trip to Egypt is to save Edifis from the consequences of failing her.



%%* ObviouslyEvil

to:

Added DiffLines:

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: He refused Artifis' HeadsIWinTailsYouLose offer not out of pragmatism but on grounds that Artifis works his slaves to death. He's not the least bit intimidated of being fed to the crocodiles, if anything, he fears his constant stress would make him unpalatable to the sacred crocodiles.

* TookALevelInJerkass: He never really was portrayed as particularly nice, but in ''Asterix and Son'', he ascends to full-fledged villain who WouldHurtAChild.

Added DiffLines:

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Though opinions on him have historically fluctuated, he real Brutus is generally seen as someone who conspired against Caesar wanting to prevent him from completely doing away with republican rule. In "Asterix and Son" he's simply a power-hungry would-be murderer looking to remove potential rivals who threaten his prospects of succeeding Caesar as ruler of Rome.

* OnlySaneMan: Views himself as one, but usually isn't. He tries to be reasonable but looses his temper easily, leads Asterix and Obelix into foolhardy quests (or assigns them anyway without bothering to go himself), and has a weakness for soothsayers. On the other hand, when calm, Vitalstatistix can be reasoned with, and, when a mass delusion strikes the village, he's often among the last to crack.

* FaceDeathWithDignity: "Gauls, let Caesar show you that a Roman knows how to die with dignity!" - he's then informed by Asterix that the later has no intention to kill him.



%%* GracefulLoser
%%* HistoricalDomainCharacter

to:

%%* GracefulLoser
%%* HistoricalDomainCharacter
* GracefulLoser: He tends to take defeat at the hands of the goal fairly well all things considered. Sure, he gets mad at his minions failing him and the fact he's SurroundedByIdiots, but he tends to be courteous with the Gauls, even in defeat. He even once declares he's ready to FaceDeathWithDignity only to be told by the Gauls they have no plans to kill him.
* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Of the real Julius Caesar.



%%* WorthyOpponent

to:

%%* WorthyOpponent
* WorthyOpponent: Tends to regard the Gauls as this when they best him - often willing to reward their victories.



* BehindTheBlack: It's a recurring joke that Cleopatra makes her entrance completely unnoticed by the characters currently on-pannel despite her usually traveling on [[ThroneMadeOfX a giant golden throne carried by several dozen slaves, with armed guards and sometimes animals by her side]]. And despite the sheer size, opulence and crowd around her, no one is ever aware she's here until she makes her presence known. ''Asterix and Son'' sees her arriving on a 2 story tall golden Sphinx on 10 wheels, pulled by dozens of slaves, and yet she's only noticed once she tells Caesar the baby Brutus is pursuing is his - this is despite the fact that Obelix and Brutus were BOTH facing the direction from which she arrived the previous panel!



%%* {{Tsundere}}

to:

%%* {{Tsundere}}* {{Tsundere}}: Swings wildly between cool and collected and shouting her lungs out and throwing things.

* AnthropomorphicShift: A very subtle version, as he's always portrayed as a NearlyNormalAnimal -- but as the comic develops he shifts from an Almost Normal Animal (almost entirely a normal dog, with a dog's level of understanding and reasoning) to a Mostly Normal Animal (a lot more aware, using more human-like gestures) and up to a Largely Normal Animal (human-level intelligence, capable of a wide variety of humanlike gestures and expressions, and in the spin-off comics focusing on him he's shown as being able to [[AnimalTalk communicate freely with all other animals]]). The short comic ''Chanticleerix'' even strongly implies that he can talk to Obelix as well.
