* MagnumOpus: The series as a whole is this for Goscinny and Uderzo. "Asterix and Cleopatra" is the most popular album.

** This is played brutally straight with the Japanese translations of the books, as only two of them were translated to Japanese and they stopped to translate the rest afterwards. possibly due of how difficult is to translate French humor to Japanese.

* WinBackTheCrowd: While arguably not among the best albums, ''Asterix and the Picts'' by the new writing team has been praised as a fortunate return to form after [[SeasonalRot Uderzo's late work]], especially the [[JumpsTheShark ''Falling Sky'']]

''Asterix and the Missing Scroll'' has been received even better as it returns to political satire.

* EsotericHappyEnding: The ending of ''Asterix and Son'' turns into this when you realize that, assuming the history of the Asterix universe is the same as ours, [[spoiler:Brutus will get his revenge by eventually assassinating Julius Caesar, Cleopatra will commit suicide, and baby Caesarion will eventually be the final Pharaoh of Egypt, ultimately ending with Egypt being annexed by Rome and Caesarion (or Ptolemy XV as he will then be known) being executed on the orders of his other adoptive brother, Augustus Caesar]].

** Obelix, while Asterix's partner, is generally more popular. His lack of mental faculty, combined with his numerous catchphrase, childish behaviors, proneness to misunderstanding things make him a far more memorable character than the relatively bland Asterix. The authors picked up on it quickly, so much that except for the two very first books, Obelix almost always share the spotlight equally with Asterix.

* HilariousInHindsight: In ''Asterix and the Great Crossing" Asterix and Obelix arrive in a wild land that is later implied to be Liberty Island. Many years later, [[https://welikia.org/ The Mannahatta Project]] showed what New York really looked like at the time.
