One day, the Roman garrison stationed around the indomitable Gaulish village decides to kidnap said village's druid, Getafix, for he is the one who makes the magic potion that grants SuperStrength to the villagers. While Asterix and Obelix are rushing to his rescue in the forest, Obelix throws a menhir (man-made granite monolith) at the Roman legionaries, which lands on the druid and renders him amnesiac and insane. During the stormy night that follows, a strange wolf pelt-wearing man pretending to be a soothsayer comes at the village.

* EmbarrassingNickname: Vitalstatistix's nickname, "Cochonnet" (which literally translates as "Piglet"), which his wife Impedimenta starts reusing after a good luck prediction by Prolix (she hasn't used it since the day they married). Cue Asterix and Obelix laughing.

* AdaptedOut: While it has a subplot with Getafix's amnesia and insanity that was adapted from the namesake album, ''Asterix and the Big Fight'', the film doesn't include the other druid from that album, Psychoanalytix.

* ExplosiveResults: When Asterix and friends try to have a now-insane Getafix recreate the magic potion, it only manages to cause explosions, due to him using random ingredients for kicks. So much so that it creates a big crater in the village.
