* StatusQuoIsGod: The village is destroyed in ''Astérix and Son'', but by the end of the story, Caesar promises to rebuild it as thanks for the Gauls protecting [[spoiler:his son]]. He even ''joins the Gauls in their ending feast''... but he still tries to conquer the village in later stories.
** In some regards averted when Uderzo took over the comic (YourMileageMayVary whether that's a good thing of not), and altered a few things. Examples being: we got to know why Obelix wasn't supposed to drink any magic potion (too much of it turns people to stone and later into children), we got an extra comic about the childhood of the heroes in the village, the bard gained the ability to summon rainstorms with his song etc.

** 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.
