* 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.

* DuctTapeForEverything: On one occasion, Gaston caused Prunelle to end up entangled in duct tape when he unwound an entire roll to see how long it was. On another occasion, a roll of heavy-duty tape stuck to his leg caused him to trail behind him assorted office implements, as well as Prunelle sitting on his wheeled chair. But Gaston's most catastrophic use of duct tape (more exactly, surgical tape bought from an **out of business hospital**) was when he tried to seal a leaking gas pipe with it, causing his office to blow up.

* AntiVillain: 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).

* AcquaintedWithEmergencyServices: The firefighters are so used to Gaston's explosive experiments, floods, and noxious gasses they try to beat their own records for time taken to get to his office building. One strip has Fantasio calling them and saying "the usual address".

* BunglingInventor: Gaston. Sometimes, his idea is actually pretty solid, but he lacks the engineering skills to implement it properly. Examples include his library lifter which couldn't handle the weight of the dictionaries he was trying to get, and his pneumatic tube system which couldn't handle maximum pressure.

** In the original French, Gaston's catch phrase is ''"M'enfin?"''; it's a contracted form of ''Mais enfin?'' (loosely, "What the heck?" or "Huh?").

** In the original French, Gaston's catch phrase is ''"M'enfin?"''; it's a contracted form of ''Mais enfin?'' (loosely, "What the heck?" or "Huh?"). He says it whenever things don't go as planned, which is quite often due to his lack of foresight.
