** ''Mission Cléopâtre'' has one where the RelaxOVision provides an educational film on crawdads instead of the fight.

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The Creator/{{Konami}} [[VideoGame/{{Asterix}} arcade game]]. The ''Asterix & Obelix XXL'' series was also pretty well received, especially the second game's [[ReferenceOverdosed numerous]] [[ShoutOut/AsterixAndObelixXXL2 Shout-Outs]]. On the other hand, some fans of the original comic book found [[PlayTheGameSkipTheStory the story and humor really weak]] for an ''Asterix'' game and too focused on [[WereStillRelevantDammit pandering to the gamers crowd]].

** In ''Asterix at the Olympic Games'', the Romans simply want to send a champion to the games and get the glory. When the Gauls find out about the games, they send their own champion, under the pretense that they are allowed to go as Romans because Gaul is part of the Roman World (despite the village obviously resisting the occupation).

Asterix even give his reward to the Roman champion of a nearby camp as a PetTheDog moment

** ''Asterix and Obélix Take on Caesar'' wouldn't be the only time Caesar wound up wearing a mask, as it later happened in [[spoiler:''Asterix and the Chariot Race'']] (albeit willingly, this time).

** Numerusclausus in ''Asterix and the Picts''. The poor guy was just a civilian Roman trying to make a census of the village and the Gauls kept beating him up. They were no signs that the census would have been used for military purposes.

They were no signs that the census would have been used for military purposes. That being said, [[SubvertedTrope they finally]] [[PetTheDog give him lenience]] at the end of the book, by suggesting the one surefire method to have a headcount: [[OnceAnEpisode the traditional banquet]].

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: The second live-action film ''Asterix and Obelix Meet Cleopatra'', thought still has mixed reception among critics and fans of the comic, is usually seen as better, funnier and closer to the comic than ''Asterix and Obelix Take on Caesar''. [[{{Sequelitis}} Averted with the later sequels however]].

** In fact, the roles are reversed in ''Asterix and the Laurel Wreath'', where Asterix and Obelix go to Rome and carry out a complex plan to steal Caesar's laurel wreath. The Romans did not do anything, and the Gauls wanted to steal from them. And not for an honorable reason: just for Vitalstatistix to give a TakeThat to his brother-in-law. The death sentence on Asterix and Obelix does not count either: Asterix himself pled to be sent immediately to the Circus for punishment of their crime ([[ItMakesSenseInContext dishonoring a slaver and a slave owner]]... thinking that Caesar would be there, with his laurel wreath.

* AuthorTract: ''Asterix and the Goths''. The third book of the series, published a mere 16 years after the end of UsefulNotes/WW2. Being French and Jewish, Goscinny wasn't too fond of Germans at that time. And therefor, the Goths weren't given a positive portrayal at all.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Flaturtha from ''The Mansions of the Gods'' can give of the impression of being female due to the fact that all other characters whose names end in -a are female.
