Though pretty hilariously, after half of the town's been turned black and back, people comments how the milkman is ''still'' black. His answer: "But I've always been!"

* MadnessMantra: After Fantasio goes insane in ''La Vallée des Bannis'' he develops a tendency to say or yell, "FANTASIO MAGAZIIIIIIIIIINE!" due to the fact that the HatePlague had made him fixate on the fact that despite them being lifelong partners, their book was still called ''Spirou Magazine''.

* CoolCar: The Turbotraction (which somehow disappeared just after Franquin left). Pénélope in the AnimatedAdaptation. The first model was crashed by Ibd-Mah-Zoud in ''Vacances sans histoires'' to be replaced by the second model; in ''Panade à Champignac'', Franquin replaced it altogether with a small Honda coupé. Fournier, who took over, kept the same small car. After that, Spirou and Fantasio would always drive small, cheap cars -- Franquin said it first in ''Vacances sans histoires'' and Tome & Janry hammered in that Spirou and Fantasio are far from being rich in ''Spirou à New York''. That makes the Turbotraction border {{Improbably Cool Car}}.

The disappearance of the second model is never explained in-universe, though.

* GadgeteerGenius: Fantasio in his early appearances. Including the mostly forgotten Fanta-Copter: a functional jetpack!one-person helicopter backpack! Fantasio remains a gadgeteer all along, sometimes giving Champignac a hand in building his inventions (he's seen working on the submarine).

* IntimidationDemonstration: One of the early stories has the Marsupilami meet a gorilla, who starts engaging in threatening behavior (chestbeating, ripping trees out of the ground...). Subverted, however, in that it is quickly too tired to actually fight, and the Marsupilami goes by unharmed.
