* TheNapoleon: A caricature of René Goscinny, portrayed as the irascible midget-boss of ''Polite (!) magazine'' where Achille Talon works. As for Napoleon, many fans thought then that Goscinny ''was'' tiny. It could be as well an {{Homage}} to Goscinny's character ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}.

* {{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.



* HurricaneOfPuns: And it ''never'' stops. The title character himself is a pun (from Achilles' Heel).

* AuthorAvatar: Downplayed, Lefuneste's more prominent traits were an exageration of Greg's, but his personality isn't.
* AuthorTract: ''L'Archipel de Sanzunron'' was initially ordered to illustrate a bank's newsletter, and as such is a pamphlet about the wonders of capitalism in general and banking in particular.

* 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.
