* An Italian ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse story was a giant homage to ''Asterix'', featuring Mickey and Pete as two Gauls who happen to resemble them... Something that is actually a plot point, as [[WritingAroundTrademarks this story is actually set in the same universe without ever showing or naming the canon characters]] and the two ''get'' mistaken for Asterix and Obelix multiple times while they're going to a certain UndefeatableLittleVillage to try and obtain a certain super strength potion to resist the Romans...

* ''ComicBook/GillesDeGeus'': The story ''Willem de Zwijger'' starts off with a parody of the opening of every ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' album. We see a large magnifying glass appear and the narrator saying: "In the 16th century all of the Netherlands are occupied by the Spanish. All of the Netherlands? YES, All of the Netherlands!!" Then the magnifying glass burns a hole through the map. In the next shot we see Willem van Oranje in a burning city shouting: "I saw it! I swear! A giant magnifying glass appeared and set the entire town on fire!", before he wakes up and it turns out it was AllJustADream.

* In the 1980 screen adaptation of ''Theatre/TheMiser'', when Harpagon (Creator/LouisDeFunès) is discussing feeding the horses with Maître Jacques (Michel Galabru), they are not figured by real horses but by a life-sized drawing from Albert Uderzo himself, as if coming straight out of ''Asterix''.
