** [[WordOfGod The authors]] state that the species of each individual character was carefully chosen to represent who the character really is, and that the connection between the animal chosen and the personality of the character isn't always as obvious as the "cops=dogs" example.

** [[WordOfGod The authors]] state that the species of each individual character was carefully chosen to represent who the character really is, and that the connection between the animal chosen and the personality of the character isn't always as obvious as the "cops=dogs" example. For instance he made bikers a bunch of sheeps because of the gregarious aspects of the animals and character who are either ugly or disfigured are less anthropomorphic to underline it.



* BreatherEpisode: ''Amarillo''. However, it's solely one for the hurting Blacksad as there is still plenty of murder and mayhem to go around for everyone else.

* TragicVillain: The lizard henchman of the first volume. Most of his background implies he was just a guy from the ghetto who got hired to be a valet for a man he despised. Then he saw a gruesome murder that gave him finally a chance to blackmail himself a cozy life, which Blacksad seems to have planned that too (the henchman never realized Blacksad's motives to investigate). He ends up lamenting that while his boss was a SoreLoser, himself was just a loser.
