* SpeciesSurname: Very common, though some are subtler than others. French Prime Minister Lapine has the bonus of having a name that relates to rabbits (which he is) and the French nationalist politician Jean-Marie Le Pen (which Lapine also is).

"Brock" itself is an archaic English word for a badger.

''Grandville'' is set in a fictional SteamPunk Europe, where UsefulNotes/{{France}} won the NapoleonicWars. The setting is full of [[FunnyAnimal anthropomorphic animals]]... although there have been appearances of [[LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy humans]]. The series stars [[PrivateDetective Detective-Inspector]] Archie [=LeBrock=] of UsefulNotes/ScotlandYard, a huge, muscular badger, solving mysterious cases along with his sidekick Detective Roderick Ratzi, a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin rat]].

** Strangely, although a newspaper in ''Mon Amour'' gives the year as 2010 (which fits with the timeline of the Napoleonic Wars), 19th-century figures such as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustave_Courbet Gustave Courbet]] and, it's implied, UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud are alive.

* FantasticRacism: The [[PettingZooPeople anthro characters]] aren't too fond of the humans, calling them with racist terms (see FantasticSlurs below) and giving them menial tasks. According to [=LeBrock=], they've not made it to Britain because they weren't allowed passports, as they were not granted citizens' rights. Some information from the fourth book suggests that the anti-human prejudice has ''much'' deeper and bloody roots.

* MoreThanMindControl: Even after [[spoiler: Apollo's hold over the masses is broken and everyone can see him for what he really is]], Bunty admits that she is still in love with him. In the end, she is the only one at his side as he dies.


Added DiffLines:

* PowderKegCrowd: Taking place in a period of political upheaval, the books have a protest as a setpiece at least OnceAnEpisode. Sometimes, they turn violent.
** In the third book, a pro-human rally is marching in central Paris when [[=LeBrock=]] and Ratzi bump into the killer they've been looking for. A firefight breaks out, leading to a stampede.
** In the fourth book, an anti-human rally happens across a group of human terrorists who were planning to bomb the rally but were interrupted before they could enact their plan. The crowd correctly deduces their intentions, the humans panic and open fire and things just get worse from there.
