* FundamentallyFunnyFruit: Eggplants. Ibáñez likes to draw eggplants lying around, just because they're funny.
** There's more to it than just being a "funny fruit". In Spain, the word "berenjena" has several other uses in coloquial language: a "berenjeno" is someone who likes to argue for stuff that is pointless or totally irrelevant, a "berenjenal" (strictly, the place where eggplants are planted) is an imbroglio or other kind of trouble and a "discusión de berenjenas" (lit. "eggplant argument") is an argument where neither side makes sense or even sees the point at hand.
** There's one instance where Mortadelo has to deal with members of a certain political party, which has as its logo a hand with an eggplant (a parody of the actual logo of the PSOE, a hand with a rose), meaning these guys are all ''berenjenos''.

** One of the Football World Cup themed albums featured the Scotland national football team, with names such as Mac Arron (Macaroni) Mac Abeo (Maccabee) or Mac Anudo (macanudo, Argentinian slang for 'excellent')

** Foreign characters and/or places tend to fall into this as well. For example, the villain of "Robots bestiajos" was a Japanese MadScientist called Mirake Tekasko ("mira que te casco", roughly "be careful or I'll hit you") who eventually was reported to have been arrested in the Japanese town of Higosheko ("higo seco", meaning "dried fig").

* MadeOfBologna: Characters are often cut in half in different ways, with almost no viscera or blood. It merely takes some glue, some sewing, or just pressing together the two pieces to repair the damage.

--->'''Gedeón''': "Cats don't smoke. If they don't smoke is because they don't have money to buy cigarettes. If someone doesn't have enough to buy cigarettes [[PerpetualPoverty is because he is a T.I.A. agent]]. T.I.A. agents eat bread with mortadella. Mortadella sounds similar to Mortadelo. Therefore... This cat is Mortadelo!"
