* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Majestix, to the point where it's tempting to say that Cleverdix was the more qualified to be chief of the village, simply because he wasn't dumb enough to have anyone like Codfix as an advisor.

* {{Expy}}: Histrionix is basically Tragicomix with a mustache.

* {{Expy}}: Histrionix is basically Tragicomix with a mustache. Likewise, Melodrama is essentially a red-headed version of Panacea... for about three pages, after which she inexplicably turns into a blonde, and therefore a total copy of her.

* EvilChancellor: Codfix. He is the stereotype of a leader's right-hand advisor who appears loyal but plots against his master.

In another village, the Gauls are divided by large ditch and a dispute in the leadership. The left half support Cleverdix, and the right half follow Majestix. All attempts to settle the argument fail, leaving Cleverdix's son Histrionix and Majestix's daughter Melodrama to lament their plight. However, Codfix, Majestix's right-hand man, claims to have a solution; If he gets Melodrama's hand in marriage, he'll get the local Romans to aid Majestix. While Majestix isn't too keen on Roman interference, he agrees if the Romans will back off afterwards. Melodrama informs Histrionix of this, and on the advice of his father, Histrionix goes to Asterix's village for help. Learning of the plight, Asterix, Obelix, and Getafix agree to protect the village from the Romans and help resolve the divide.

* CombatByChampion: Melodrama yells at the chiefs to fight each other for the chieftainship instead of the villagers.



* ShoutOut: Majestix strikes the famous UsefulNotes/LouisXIV pose and says: "The village, that's me", a paraphrase of the quote attributed to Louis XIV: "The state, that's me."

* SeparatedByTheWall: A Gaulish village is divided by a large ditch, with two lovers from the separate sides divided. Author Albert Uderzo has said he was inspired by the UsefulNotes/BerlinWall, which still stood at the time this album was written.

Back at the village, the celebration of Melodrama's safe return is soured by the dispute of leadership. The two would-be chiefs have a duel to decide things, with Asterix as judge, but they're so evenly matched that it goes on through the night. Come morning, both men have fallen asleep standing up, but Asterix has a compromise- Histronix shall be chief, with Melodrama as his wife!

wife! Everyone approves, and with the dispute settled, Majestix and Cleverdix become friends. The a nearby river is diverted to fill the divide, the StarCrossedLovers have their wedding, and Codfix, most fittingly, has become the Roman camp's sole drudge, doing menial chores. All of them.



* AnimalMotif: Codfix looks like a...fish. A RunningGag is the costent allusions to fish.
