In later stories, Blueberry became a more unique individual, though he never quite stopped resembling Belmondo.

When creating the series, Giraud was inspired by the time he had spent in the American West in the 1950s. The physical appearance of the character himself is based on French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo. Already fairly realistic in the first episodes, the series took advantage of loosened censorship laws in 1968 to get DarkerAndEdgier, with more overt depictions of violence and sexuality. In 1973, Giraud decided to redefine himself as Moebius, leaving the series to Colin Wilson (the New Zealander who worked on ''[[ComicBook/TwoThousandAD 2000AD]]'', not the British prose writer), who then passed it on to Michel Blanc-Dumont. Giraud later came back to ''Blueberry'' as a scenarist, and after Charlier's death in 1989, took over writing duties until his own death in 2012.

* AlternateHistory: Is put firmly in this column with the two assassination attempts against President Ulysses S. Grant.

** General Allister did the above by declaring war on the Indian tribes, right after Blueberry had signed a peace treaty. His army would have been completely annihilated by said Indian tribes had it not been for Blueberry's actions.

* BlondBrunetteRedhead: Red, Blueberry and Jimmy respectively. Mike's is dark enough to be black, and Red's slowly fades to white over the course of the series, but the core of this trope is respected (and it lets you tell the physically-similar Mike and Red apart at a glance.)
