* GenreBlind: everyone keeps falling for Jokey Smurf's overused prank. [[GenreSavvy When they do refuse the "surprise package"]], [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption it turns out it wasn't a prank]] but a real present, often a big cake. Done several times.

* SomethingElseAlsoRises: In the story "The Smurf Garden", when [[SmoochOfVictory Smurfette kisses Dopey Smurf]], the floppy part of his hat rises. This sometimes happens to each Smurf who gets kissed by Smurfette.
** One wonders in the cartoon show episode "Swapping Smurfs" what the Well Wizard actually did to the Smurfs that made them look so happy that the floppy part of their hats end up standing straight.

* NonFatalExplosions: Jokey's explosive presents never do any harm except just splatter black soot on people.

* FollowTheLeader: The extreme popularity of the comics and the animated series led to many attempts at repeating this success. Examples include the Galaxians from ''WesternAnimation/LeScrameustache'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSnorks'' (part of a few attempts by HB studios itself!).



* GoKartingWithBowser: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqrcEF-aQis In one Live-Action Greek music video]]. The Smurfs and Gargamel are seen having fun at a amusement park instead of him chasing them.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Gargamel's goal of vengeance is condemned to failure, of course. But there's also Season 9 of the cartoon series, when the Smurfs were sucked into a time warp and spent the remainder of the series desperately trying to make their way back to Smurf Village. So it's two Sisyphean goals in one!
** Actually, only one Sisyphean goal replaced by another, as the Smurfs in the final season mostly dealt with Gargamel's distant ancestors and not the wizard himself.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the early years of the franchise. Smurfs used to not only walk, but they were mostly seen bouncing/hopping from place to place. This is most notable in WesternAnimation/TheSmurfsAndTheMagicFlute where the majority of smurfs were spotted hopping besides walking making them move quicker. This was later removed in the 80's and are only seen walking. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khUuxI7UPyk The last time they were spotted bouncing and walking was in the animated intro to The Smurfs Sega CD game.]]
