*** When going to join the legion, Asterix tells Obelix to stand back while he speaks to the the guard, as they need to be nice to the Romans. Asterix subsequently loses his temper with the (extremely overbearing) guard and punches him, and through the rest of the story, "being nice to" someone means to thump them.

** The overall least comedic book in the series has to be ''Asterix and Obelix All at Sea''. Obelix [[TakenForGranite turns to stone]] after another overdose of magic potion and there are genuine concerns raised that he may be dead. We get a very depressing scene where Asterix sits by the lifeless Obelix's bed while Getafix unsucessfully tries to find a cure. The book also includes possibly the ''only'' time in the series where Asterix's life is actually put in genuine danger by Roman legionaries (they knock him unconscious and prepare to throw him overboard while Obelix watches helplessly... at first). It's also a rare instance in any Asterix book where [[spoiler:''the antagonist unambiguously dies'']].
