Added DiffLines:

* OffhandBackhand: Obelix manages to unknowingly do this to ''all'' the gladiators in the arena while talking to Asterix.


* DarkerAndEdgier: Beyond stuff like the AttemptedRape of Panacea and Asterix almost drowning while in prison, the tone of the movie in general is much more serious that what's typical for an Asterix adventure. Other things include the Gauls standard [[TrashtheSet thrashing the camp]] scene being treated as a borderline MookHorrorShow, and Caesar[[note]]whose normal status as TheComicallySerious is completely absent[[/note]] being heavily implied to have actually feed Caius to the lions at the end.

* UncertainDoom: Caius Fatuous is last seen barely hanging above a hungry lion, his ultimate fate is left unknown, but given Caesars´s threat, that Gaius would be fed to his own lions if the games go wrong, it didn't look good for him.
