Added DiffLines:

* SoundDefect: A Mafia henchman in ''Le Quadrumane Optimiste'' has a strange illness that causes every sound he makes to be rendered as a completely unrelated onomatopoeia (like whacking someone on the head with a huge "gulp" sound, for instance), and his boss regularly complains about it. The henchman is overjoyed at the end of the story to discover that he's cured when the manacles he's handcuffed with make a correct "click" sound.

* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: In order to fly to Polynesia on short notice and on a shoestring in ''Le Grain de la folie'', Lefuneste and Major Lafrime hire a veteran German UsefulNotes/WW1 pilot, who gets them there onboard his vintage triplane which keeps losing bits while in flight. Amazingly, the obsolete aircraft handily wins a dogfight against a modern jet fighter on the way.

* TakeThat: In ''Docteur Chacal et Mister Bide'' (a pastiche of ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDoctorJekyllAndMrHyde'', as the title suggests), Talon spends a whole page mocking a critic who said of every comic (including the first one) that it was not the best of the series.

Received a short-lived AnimatedAdaptation that aired on ABC Family (back when it was FOX Family)[[note]]in some English-speaking channels overseas, this show aired on Disney's Jetix and was available on Jetix Play[[/note]] where Achille Talon (now named Walter Melon) works as a "hero for hire" with his hapless sidekick, Bitterbug. Together, the duo step in for the hero and sidekick in parodies of popular movies, TV shows, works of literature, and, in its second season (which aired in other countries save the United States of America), historical events. The show also had a woman named Amelia, who often played the female roles (often the sidekick, love interest, or FemmeFatale), and a Joker-esque clown named Sneero, who played the villain.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Metaphorgotten}}: A recurring gag in the more verbose strips.
--> The gabbling artist stirring deep inside the more methodical reader looks avidly for the outstretched hand that will get his foot in the door of the drawing table and cannot find it. Which is only logical, since this hand, clutching the breadwinning brush, is close to losing its head.

* DaEditor: Goscinny. Albeit one who is happy to use axes and sledgehammers to reprimand [[ScheduleSlip late authors.]]

* DaEditor: Goscinny. Albeit one who is happy to use axes and sledgehammers to reprimand [[ScheduleSlip late authors.]]]] This portrayal of him was so pervasive that apparently many people exclaimed "[[TheNapoleon Hey, you're not that small!]]" when meeting him for the first time.



* DepravedDentist

to:

* DepravedDentistDepravedDentist: While he doesn't do horrible things to people's teeth, he does knock them out with a special gas that causes recurring nightmares. Then his accomplice shows up with the miracle cure.



* FriendlyEnemy: Talon and his neighbour Hilarion Lefuneste. Always calls him ''cuistre'' (prig) but they're inseparable. Especially when they're fighting each other.

* {{Hypocrite}}: After chewing out a subordinate who asked why the upcoming exercise featured China as the enemy...
--> Naturally, there is no particular reason I chose China as the opposing force for this exercise. As you know, gentlemen, if there's one thing I hate more than the Chinese it's racism.



--> What? There are revolutionaries too?\\
Come now Achille! We ''are'' in South America, after all!



* MundaneUtility: Alambic gets a job in a construction company specializing in anti-intrusion measures, such as glass shards embedded on walltops. Shards made by breaking empty beer bottles. Guess whose job it is to empty them...



* SeriesContinuityError: One album has Achille claiming the his father only ever left Europe for three days to South America, when he spent a good portion of his early life in the African Disciplinary Batallions. Not only that, but this is in the context of finding out if he picked up a tropical disease or a black magic curse from Africa, when Alambic's knowledge of witch-doctor magics are essential to the plot.
