* {{Karma}}{{Karma}}: A big concept in the comic: Your deeds, good or evil, will come back to you sooner or later. One of the first things we see human Billy do is kick a cat -- then he's killed in an accident and reincarnated as a cat.

'''''Billy the Cat''''' is a Franco-Belgian comic book series by the Belgian Stéphane Colman and Stephen Desberg. Also an animated cartoon version has been produced for broadcast and is ran through American Broadcasting Company, amongst others. Both comic and cartoon deal with the everyday and secret lives of urban animals, and while the characters are largely the same in both versions, the stories and situations are very different.

** Most of the animal characters also see Billy as this, as his claims of being a human trapped in the body of a cat aren´t usually taken seriously.
* FantasticRacism: Between cats and dogs. This is more notable in the animated series. Cats and dogs absolutely despise each other and don´t even seem to consider getting along. Also, Mr. Hubert in the series seems to be unable to consider pigeons as anything other than food, and takes a bit of time to accept the pigeon Jumbo as an ally.
** In the animated series, there was also a group of purebred dogs who had sworn to kill not only every cat they come across, but also any dog that isn´t a purebred like themselves. Meaning that, yes, these dogs extend their racism to even their own kind.

* FauxAffablyEvil: Sanctifer can be polite, helpful and friendly, but deep down, he is a very nasty and sociopathic individual, who will get quite agressive if things don´t go his way.
* KnightOfCerebus: Sanctifer is quite a frightening and dangerous villain. The comics in which he appears are noticeably darker than the others.
* LoudOfWar: Hell in the pilot comic (even before "in the skin of a cat"). Eternal dance music that's really eternal. A party that never stops! Sounds great, huh? Not really according to Billy...

* NiceMice: Completely Averted in the second episode, where a group of mice bully Billy. They are no better than the rat villains who appear later in the series.
