The last book that ReneGoscinny was involved in the production of (he died during production). WordOfGod says that this is why the skies are constantly overcast once the Gauls reach Belgium.

* NegativeContinuity: If this story is to be believed, the Belgians are invincible and Belgium is far from becoming a part of the Roman empire. But in ''The Mansion of the Gods'' and ''The Laurel Wreath'', Belgian POW slaves seems to be common in the empire, and in ''Asterix The Legionary'', a Belgian is one of the volunteers for the Roman army along with Asterix and Obelix.

** Allusions to Belgian fries, mussels, Brussels sprouts, waterzooi, Manneken Pis, lace from Bruges and Brussels, Belgium being the head of the European Economic Community (the line: "There's a small economic community further up."), the Atomium, {{Tintin}}, cyclist Eddy Merckx, Creator/PieterBruegelTheElder,... are made. The jokes told about Belgians at the start of the story is also a reference. In modern times Belgians are frequently ridiculed by their neighbouring countries in jokes that target their stupidity, rather than their bravery as shown in this story.

* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: Julius Caesar is speeching in the Senate and a scribe writes down everything he says. When another senator tries to start a debate about the local brassica ("cabbage") a messenger arrives from Belgium and asks permission to enter. Caesar allows this, which causes the senator that start a tirade on why the brassica topic is far more important to discuss. Caesar snaps back at him: "Stuff your brassica!". The scribe is then informed by the tribune: "Better leave that line out, for future generations may ask questions about Caesar's reputation." When Caesar hears that a revolt has broken out in Belgica he decides to leave immediately and says: "I shall go, I see and I shall conquer." To which the tribune says to the scribe: [[ExactWords "You may write that one down!"]]
* TintinShoutOut: Thompson and Thomson from ''ComicStrip/{{Tintin}}'' have a cameo.
