To know about the people and tropes Lucky Luke meets in his adventures, go to the WesternCharacters page and start from the top. Seriously, they're all there, gleefully parodied and occasionally played straight. But, while those make for the generic background crowds, one of the main points of the series is the number of historical characters Luke regulary meets and who most of the time take centre space in the story. Over the years they have included Judge Roy Bean (who owns a bar and acts as self-appointed "judge", complete with fake court proceedings, to extort money from locals... and turns out to be harmless, helping Luke against the actual BigBad), UsefulNotes/BillyTheKid (portrayed as an actual, annoying BrattyHalfPint whose defeat consists of a good spanking), UsefulNotes/JesseJames 's gang (with Jesse parodied as a delusional RobinHood fan and Frank as a Shakespeare-quoting pseudo-intellectual), UsefulNotes/CalamityJane (with whom Lucky Luke developed a very sweet platonic relationship), Creator/MarkTwain, and Wyatt Earp, among others.

Added DiffLines:

* TheUnfavorite: Joe Dalton routinely gets the harshest treatment from his mother, while she dotes on Averell constantly. [[spoiler: She later tells Joe that she loves him the most, mostly because he reminds her so much of their father; the only reason she's hard on him is because she expects so much more from him than the others.]]

* AlwaysABiggerFish: Lucky Luke undermines Billy the Kid's fearsome image by setting himself up as an even worse crook.

** Jolly Jumper is a horse Ace.


Added DiffLines:

** Jolly Jumper tends to get plenty of excuses due to being just that awesome. Rantanplan gets a few thanks to general weirdness.

Added DiffLines:

* SkyCell: "Tortillas for the Daltons" has Joe escape from Luke onto a mesa... only to find that he's trapped on maybe four square feet of dirt. When Luke suggests he come back in a year or so, Joe quickly surrenders.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseAnimalCare: Averted. Jolly Jumper is semi-frequently shown drinking beer. However, contrary to most people's intuition, beer is a perfectly harmless and fairly healthy treat for a horse. In fact, adding beer to water is a fairly common way to ensure that a dehydrated horse drinks.

* TrackTrouble: In "Jesse James", Jesse's gang pull one rail to the side to flip the train. One of them decides to improve on it by bending ''both'' tracks at a time, letting the train jump the tracks and coast to a stop in a nearby town (eliciting locals remarking they didn't know the railway was coming to their town and what this'll do to property prices).

''Lucky Luke'' is a Franco-Belgian School [[TheWestern Western]] comic created in 1946 by graphic artist Morris, who at first did both art and writing. It began as a semi-serious comic with a rugged cowboy hero, lots of gunplay and occasional almost-onscreen deaths. Then, from 1955 to 1977, the writing was taken over by ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' creator Creator/ReneGoscinny and the comic turned into an unabashed AffectionateParody of the whole western genre. Around the same time, the authors dropped all pretense of portraying the protagonist as a realistic cowboy and turned him into a [[TheDrifter Drifter]]/[[TheGunslinger Gunslinger]] type whose fame and skill often made him the US Government's last resort when it came to particularly tricky situations (much to his annoyance).

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: One townsfolk remarks to another that Jolly Jumper is playing chess with Luke the other simply answers: Yes he is taking way too long to make a move but we have more pressing matter to take care of.
