* AntiNepotism: The 20th Cavalry Regiment is headed by a colonel whose son is also in the regiment, and is punished for just about every single thing he says by the colonel to avoid any accusations of nepotism. The son finally snaps back at the colonel, who is stunned that his son is finally a man. Of course, old habits are hard to break, and at the end of the story, the son is punished for speaking out of turn (that is, saying "Goodbye, Luke" without asking PermissionToSpeakFreely).

* AllJewsAreAshkenazi: "La terre promise" is about Luke escorting a family of them, the narrative explains that, being 1869, jews are already kind of rare in America so they are pretty much the only jews Luke heard of.

'''Passerby:''' It's like an American but more pessimist.

* PeelingPotatoes: * Spoofed in ''Le Vingtieme de Cavalerie''. After an Indian raid during which the food stores are burned. Luke sees four men sitting on the ground around a bucket making peeling hand motions. When he queries the Sergeant, he is informed that these men have been assigned to peel potatoes, and life in the cavalry goes on, potatoes or no potatoes. The sergeant then berates the men for not pretending to peel thinly enough and tells them that the colonel will pretend to inspect the pretend peels personally.

** Played straight with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Bart_(outlaw) Black Bart]], the diligence's passengers who braved Indians, bandits and more with relative ease are unnerved to go in his territory (safe the photograph who wants to take a photo of the famed outlaw), even with Luke on their side. He is also one of the few bandits to get the upper hand on Lucky Luke and would have stolen the loot if [[spoiler: the loot wasn't a decoy all along]]. One character even doubt that Black Bart is human.

* DarkerAndEdgier: PlayedForLaughs in a one-page comic that was made around the time the comic switched to a less strict publisher. In the comic, Luke enjoys the freedom the change has given him by acting completely OutOfCharacter. Namely by drinking alcohol instead of the usual lemonade, shooting a sheriff in the stomach and having implied, off-screen sex with a saloon girl, all while the other characters are pointing out that the publisher is too respectable to ever letting him get away with these acts, and Luke in turn pointing out that he got a new publisher now.

** Luke is pretty much composed aside bouts of EnragedByIdiocy, when he reads an old friend's postmortem letter he tries to roll a cigarette only to shake too much and tore the cigarette paper, showing he is moved.



* OneNoteCook: All the station cooks they encounter on a travel with the stagecoach can cook nothing but potatoes with bacon (well, and coffee, or something similar). Except for one, who makes beef with beans. Even in a party organized by that stagecoach company, all the dishes contain potatoes and bacon, with an extra random ingredient thrown in for each one.
