* KarmaHoudini: Gaston was fired just once (for bringing a cow in the office), then was rehired. For some reason, [[FlanderIzation despite becoming more and more destructive and useless to the redaction with years]], nobody ever thought of firing him again. To be fair, Gaston is often injured and unlucky.

** Prunelle, Gaston's "mean" boss, is often an antagonist. But he's just trying to keep the publishing company running and to force Gaston to do the work he's paid for, instead of slacking off or doing something else. Gaston's experiments also regularly disturb everyone else in their work, sometimes even endangering them.

** Agent Longtarin, the closest thing Gaston has to an archenemy, is just a regular traffic cop charged with enforcing the law, which Gaston often breaks openly. However, there are times when he gets a bit vindicative, giving Gaston a ticket for his car on a no-parking zone, then another for the soapbox racer he was unloading, then a third one for ''the roller-skate'' that fell out of the racer, doing a HappyDance as he writes the ticket. Once, he stopped Gaston in the street to ticket him for various faults on the car, and then added a parking ticket because the car was parked in the street. Considering that Gaston loves tormenting him with practical jokes revolving around parking meters that occasionally seem to drive him on borders of neurosis, he probably deserves a little payback. Although Longtarin isn't that nice toward other civilian and borderline harrasses De Mesmaeker for an alcotest (saying he didn't blow properly in it).

* LethallyStupid: Gaston loves making scientific experiences. But with all the disasters he causes, it's a miracle everyone around him is still ''alive''... One of the best examples happened where, after too much tin can-related antics, Fantasio brought a mine detector to the office and found a ''live WorldWarII landmine''. Gaston just wanted to open it to see how "that funny-looking hot water bottle" works.

* DidntThinkThiThrough: Happens a lot with Gaston. The best example is when, as a way to exercice while doing his favorite hobby, he made a cup-and-''bowling''-ball.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the oldest gags, Gaston is a total moron instead of being just clueless and lacking energy. Later, he is still lazy but can be energetics when he does things he enjoys, like cooking or inventing.

** Prunelle, in his earliest appearances, is a pretty calm and jovial guy, as a direct contrast to the temperamental Fantasio. After Fantasio was PutOnABus and Prunelle stepped in as his substitute, he quickly became a lot more hotheaded, and it didn't take long before his temper was more explosive than Fantasio's had ever been.
