Added DiffLines:

** Averted in the live action movie. Valerian is unambiguously Nordic.


Added DiffLines:

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: The leaders of the military Valerian and Laureline belong to. In one scene, the leader and the doctor look way too much like Hitler and Mengele!!!

Added DiffLines:

* SpaceJews: Subverted with the Pearls from planet Mul. Their attire and habitat seem like a combination of Ancient Egyptian, Maasai, and Polynesian. But they do produce pearls (wealth) in large quantities and learn many languages and skills- very reminiscent of the overachieving Jewish stereotype.

* {{Allegory}}: In ''Heroes of the Equinox'', the three champions from three different planets who compete against Valérian are clear allegories of Earth political movements: German/Italian fascism, Soviet communism, and GranolaGirl style "spiritual" environmentalism. Through them, Mézières satirizes the sort of politics that don't allow free thinking, and in the end Valérian [[spoiler:wins the contest because he's the only one with a liberal, non-didactic view on how thing should be done.]]

* SendInTheClones: Expecting a high attrition rate for his mission in "On the False Earths", Valérian was cloned into dozens of short-lived copies. Most of them were expended in one go when the mission manager dressed them up as German soldiers, and sent them to battle in a live-action reenactment of a WW1 trench charge.
