* TheBet: When going into the forest to look for the dolmen where Clovogarlix is, Asterix and Obelix bet wether they will encounter wolves first, or bandits, with the loser having to buy the other a round of beer. Asterix bets on wolves, and wins. But just barely, since the wolves are sitting around a tree, in which a bandit is hiding.

** The Massilian who buys the Arvernian's inn when he goes on the run is a caricature of French actor Jules Muraire, or Raimu as he was professionally known; his most famous roles include Ceasar, the owner of a bar by the port in Marseilles in the 1930s film trilogy ''Marius'', ''Fanny'', and ''César''.

* SymbolSwearing: Done by Getafix at the start of the story when his sickle breaks. And later by Clovogarlix when Asterix and Obelix trap him in the underground sickle storage by putting the big boulder from the Dolmen on top of the trapdoor.

* ExactEavesdropping: The first group of bandits Asterix and Obelix encounter are in the right place and time to overhear Asterix tell Obelix how much money he is carrying. Not that it does them any good.
* ForcedIntoEvil: the Arvernian, who witnessed Metallurgix getting kidnapped. The kidnappers let him go, on condition that he would warn them whenever somebody came looking for Metallurgix.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The reason Getafix needs a replacement golden sickle fast is not just because itís the only tool he can harvest mistletoe for the magic potion with, but also because heís about to go to a druid conference in the forest of Carnutes. This conference is seen in the following story.
* HelloAgainOfficer: Asterix and Obelix keep getting in trouble with the same Roman official.
* TheHighwayman: The forests between the village and Lutetia are infamous for being infested with these. Asterix and Obelix run into several of them along the way.



* KidnappedScientist: Metallurgix is known for making the best golden sickles. Hence why he was kidnapped by the sickle traffickers and forced to work for them.



* SecretUndergroundPassage: The sickle traffickers have an underground storage fort heir golden sickles, next to a dolmen in the forrest.
* ShaggySearchTechnique: Asterix and Obelix find the dolmen by sheer coincidence, during a heavy rainstorm in the middle of the night, when they canít see a thing. The following morning, Obelix finds the secret trapdoor next to the Dolmen when he falls through it.

Chasing Navishtrix, the pair are once again arrested by the Romans and break out. In trying to escape, they find Navishtrix eating with the prefect. It turns out that ''Surplus Dairiprodus'' is the boss of the golden sickle traffickers, having done it all out of boredom. Metallurgix, being held in the cellar, is released and Surplus Dairiprodus and Navishtrix are arrested. As thanks, Metallurgix gives a golden sickle to Asterix and Obelix for free, and two return home triumphant.

The peace of the Gaulish village is disturbed by Getafix; he's broken his golden sickle! In order of mistletoe to have magic properties, they need to be cut with a golden sickle, and worse, there's a druid's conference coming up. The best golden sickles are made by Metallurgix in Lutetia, so Asterix and Obelix- who's cousins with Metallurgix- go off to buy one.

When they get to Lutetia, they find Metallurgix's house deserted. When they discuss their problem at an inn called the Jolly Arvernian, owner suddenly closes up shop. He goes to see a Gaul called Clovogarlix and tells them of the two Gauls who want a sickle. Clovogarlix finds the heroes and offers to get them a golden sickle, as Metallurgix has apparently moved away. They go to a tevern and meet its owner, Navishtrix. Navishtrix offers to sell them a golden sickle...at 3,000 gold coins! Outraged at this steep price (and being called a small-timer) Asterix and Obelix pummel Clovogarlix and Navishtrix. The Romans show up to raid the bar, and Clovogarlix and Navishtrix flee. Asterix and Obelix are arrested, but the Roman prefect, Surplus Dairiprodus finds the pair amusing and pardons them.

However, while raiding Clovogarlix's house they are once again arrested by the Romans. In jail, Asterix and Obelix learn from their druken cellmate that Navishtrix and Clovogarlix meet under a dolmen. The Gauls break out, and once again the prefect finds that amusing and pardons them.

The pair finds a dolmen in the forest, and waiting there discover Clovogarlix entering a trapdoor. following, they find an underground warehouse full of golden sickles- and the sickle traffickers! Asterix and Obelix make short work of the gang, and Navishtrix flees.
