** Astérix and Obélix arguing LikeAnOldMarriedCouple. It usually goes like this: the former will point out the latter's lack of tact on a certain situation, while the latter will whine that the former never lets him do anything.

* AnimatedCreditsOpening: Well, "The mansion of Gods" was an animated movie in CGI,[[https://vimeo.com/114231683 but the opening]] (minimalist, and in 2D) have a quite different style.



* IShouldWriteABookAboutThis: In "Asterix and the Missing Scroll", said scroll contained a lost chapter about Asterix's village in Caesar "Commentaries on the Gallic War". A druid memorize it before it was censored(as Gallics ignored writing); and druids repeat it to each other generation after generation. Until the 20th century, where an old man (presumably a druids's descendant) told the whole story to the authors, [[DirectLineToTheAuthor Goscinny and Uderzo]], who of course conclude they must do the first written version of it.

* {{Slapstick}}: The series is about about a couple of overpowered separatist terrorists defeating hundreds upon hundreds of [[UsefulNotes/TheGloryThatWasRome notoriously powerful soldiers]], but keeps it all child-friendly and cute due to how all the violence is slapstick (such as the iconic scenes of the Gauls punching Romans [[SmolderingShoes out of their sandals]]). The Gauls also pick on [[DreadfulMusician Cacofonix]] like this a hell of a lot.

** The Gothic footsoldiers in ''Astérix and the Goths'' sing about Alaric leading the Visigoths to Rome, which happened 460 years later in AD 410. They also wear helmets reminiscent of pickelhaubes, but this was likely [[ImperialGermany deliberate]] [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne stereotyping]].

* PaperThinDisguise: Obélix tries a number of these in attempts to get a taste of the magic potion is ''Astérix and Cleopatra'', failing miserably every single time. He fails to figure out how Getafix keeps recognizing him, despite the fact that he weighs about five times more than any of the Egyptian laborers who the potion is supposed to be going to, or that his disguise is a striped headdress instead of his helmet.
