* ArtisticLicenseEconomics: The very existence of the Grumpy Converter from Bluxte necessitates this trope. The creature can multiply any small, precious object hundreds or thousands of times as long as it has enough energy reserves, yet it's treated by everybody as a handy source of currency instead of a highly illegal living forgery machine.
** Treated as such by everybody ''at Point Central'', where shady deals are the standard operating procedure. Laureline is supposed to keep it secret.
** Somewhat averted as said animal is VERY rare, EXTREMELY hard to catch, needs a thorough brainwashing by a team of professionals to actually be useful, and it has rather limited reserves. The costs of acquiring, and then keeping one, offsets their economical impacts. It is the most effective alternative to carrying around enough different currencies in a mission, but in the scheme of things doesn't offset economical balances that much.

The series was a key influence on ''Franchise/StarWars'' even though George Lucas won't acknowledge it (it is proven he owns the comic books though - Laureline wore a gold bikini a few years before Leia, Valérian was frozen in a big block of animation suspending cristal, some big villains are badly scarred humans hiding under dark masks, also most aliens in the movies are taken almost straight from the comics, and ''The Phantom Menace'' design director Doug Chiang owned several ''Valérian'' albums in his library...) and ''Film/TheFifthElement'', where the author was actually hired to draw some décors and machines.
