* LeFilmArtistique: Le ''Bande Dessinée'' Artistique. The Eternauta Remake of 1969 was lampooned and censored in Argentina because of ([[AnviLicious among]] other things) its mind-blowingly dark, gritty, groundbreaking, insane and sometimes abstract or downright incomprehensible art by Alberto Breccia, possibly the most talented comic artist ever born in Argentina. The French [[FrenchBelgianComicBooks BD]] avant-garde artists just [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible loved his style]], and its success allowed a French edition of both the remake and the original version. Several has been done since.



* LaResistance: Both the first and second parts of El Eternauta develop around this trope.

* BadassNormal: Most of the main characters are just common middle-class Buenos Aires citizens. However, when the shit hits the fan they discover they were much more resourceful that they thought, and actually pretty BadAss, particularly Franco. It also must be noticed that the militiamen fight without order but, with some exceptions, they are consistently brave and loyal.

Widely considered a masterpiece, its reading is highly suggested. There is a [[{{Sequel}} sequel]], made in 1976-77, which is a bit more DarkerAndEdgier, and mostly regarded quite a good comic but not as brilliant as the original. There was later a [[{{Sequelitis}} third installment]], notoriously infamous for lack of endorsement by the original authors, with Oesterheld being [[AuthorExistenceFailure already dead]] and hired writers and artists [[TheyJustDidntCare who remained anonymous at the time]]. Starting in [[TheNineties the nineties]], a lot of other sequels and homages, both official and unofficial, were released, cementing it as an important part of Argentine pop culture. Solano López eventually created the ''Universo Eternauta'' brand ("Eternaut Universe") in order to publish both new and old (with bonus material) stories.

''El Eternauta'' ("''The Eternaut''") is the most famous Argentinian Comic, (alongside ''ComicStrip/{{Mafalda}}'', of course. And maybe ''{{Cybersix}}'', [[AdaptationDisplacement assuming people remember]] it ''was'' an Argentinian comic book). It was first published in a weekly basis from [[TheFifties 1957 to 1959]] in the Hora Cero magazine, scripted by Creator/HectorGermanOesterheld and featuring art by Francisco Solano López.

* GiantMooks: partially straight; the Gurbos are giant, MadeOfIndestructium mooks, but they lack any intelligence of their own, and are controlled by the Manos. But they are really, ''really'' dangerous, maybe qualified as Elite Mooks.

Added DiffLines:

* EliteMooks: The Manos are this, as they are intelligent, skillful slave opponents.
* FacelessGoons: Played straight with the "cascarudos", as they have not any recognizable or distinctive feature from one another; terrifyingly subverted with the '''hombres robot''', as even Juan recognizes a high school fellow among their enemies.
* GiantMooks: partially straight; the Gurbos are giant, MadeOfIndestructium mooks, but they lack any intelligence of their own, and are controlled by the Manos. But they are really, ''really'' dangerous, maybe qualified as Elite Mooks.


Added DiffLines:

* RockBeatsLaser: ''Literally'' justified and used, as River Plate stadium is chosen because the big concrete walls are the best cover against the heat rays. Metaphorically averted, as alien tech is too big (although somewhat mundane) to be fighted straightly with seemingly "primitive" weapons (tanks, conventional artillery, even nuclear weapons). But if the tech itself is not absolute, the intelligent tactics of the Manos are.

* OurOrcsAreDifferent: The Zarpos, in the second part, look and behave like orcs, as they are strong, violent slaves of the BigBad. But they have been bioenginereed from human slaves, and look more like neanderthals with claws and small tusks. [[http://www.loseternautas.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/zarpos.png And they use guns, more than axes]].
