* CensorBox: In ''Le gri-gri du Nikolo-Koba'', the diamond of Koli can make people disappear (they come back when it is placed in its special sheath), but it doesn't affect clothes. When a male villain is returned, the frame includes a narrator box with a pointless line (which reads "this is a white square"), conveniently waist-height.

This may be an allusion to the ''carré blanc'' that was used for thirty years on French TV to signal programs that may feature content inappropriate for children.

* RoguesGallery: Not so much the comic -- which had a greater variety of plots and more one-off villains -- but the 1992 animated series was fond of recurring antagonists, particularly Vito Cortizone and Cyanure.
