The famed ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'', the French gaul who resists now and ever the Roman invasion, appeared in an arcade-exclusive 1992 BeatEmUp by Creator/{{Konami}}.

(He also appeared in an {{Atari 2600}} game that was a rethemed version of ''Taz,'' as well as a platformer on the Sega Master System, but this page is not about them.)

!!''Astérix'' provides examples of:
* AllThereInTheManual: The missions are meant to be based on Asterix stories. Actually, they just establish a location, and that's all. You have to had read the books to understand the idea. For example, the mission "Asterix in Britain" never made it to Britain itself, it's all the part in the sea before reaching it.
* AntagonisticGovernor: Corsica has a Roman governor who's only there to grab as much as he can during his stay and escape with the loot.
* BonusStage: A chariot race, and a visit to the [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything useless pirates]]. Each one appears twice.
* BossRoom: The circus at the end of the Spanish campaign, and the final battle.
* BossRush: The final arena has the romans in turtle formation of the first mission. The tiger fights similarily to the Auroch of the Spanish campaign, and the last two gladiators fight similarily to the two bosses of the British campaign.
* CanonDiscontinuity: The mission to rescue Panacea is not based on any specific Asterix book. The main image is the cover of "Asterix in Corsica", and the boss is a guy from "Asterix in Spain" (which has its own mission).
* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: Not even here Obelix is allowed to drink the magic potion. Asterix's HealingPotion is the magic potion, and Obelix's is a boar. And if there are 2 player, there is a magic potion and a boar... but Obelix can not drink the potion.
* GratuitousSpanish: "Olé!"
* GrievousHarmWithABody: Asterix and Obelix can throw the romans away, taking down the romans in the way, or even shake them around.
* HealingPotion: A magic potion or a boar delivered by Ideafix, a kiss of Falbala, the boars of the first mission, some fruits here and there...
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: There are several ways to attack the Romans while they are down, bosses included.
* ShieldBearingMook: The Romans in the last mission.
* StalkedByTheBell: If you stay there too much and do not advance, Cacophonix will begin to sing, and the music notes kill!
