Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix are the first characters with short descriptions usually listed at the beginning of each of the Asterix books (after the map of Gaul).

This is a list of characters in the Asterix comics.

This may imply that Obelix, either by stupidity or ignorance, simply does not notice or react to the pain that should be inflicted, or that the potion has enhanced his overall strength, since it has been shown to increase the drinker's endurance allowing them to run faster, to such a point where his muscles allow him to effortlessly absorb the attacks in question. He generally works as a menhir delivery man. Unlike the other villagers, Obelix has no need to drink the druid Getafix's magic potion that gives superhuman strength, because he fell into the cauldron as a baby and its effect on him became permanent. Upon hearing the frustrated Squaronthehypotunus threatening to work the slaves to death, Asterix and Obelix invade the Roman camp to free the slaves and provide them with magic potion as a means to escape.

This backfires however when the slaves instead use it to rapidly advance construction, as well as barter for the same pay as the legionaries, along with their freedom and apartments for each of them upon completion.

In fact, he eats nuts and oysters in the shell, and is completely oblivious to drugs, spicy food and poison, possibly due to the permanent effects of the magic potion. During a boar hunt, Asterix and Obelix discover the Mansions’ construction site. Frustrated with the ongoing rebellion of the Gauls, Julius Caesar devises a new scheme to conquer them: the construction of luxury apartments dubbed “The Mansions Of The Gods” in the forest near the Gauls' village as a means to absorb them into Roman civilisation. Project leader and architect Squaronthehypotenus and the Roman legion commanded by Centurion Somniferus order slaves to deforest the surrounding area.

Getafix, Mischiefus and Dogmatix are captured, and held in the Mansions reception.

For the animated films, he has been voiced by Jacques Morel (the first three films), Pierre Tornade (all films during the 80s and 90s), Jacques Frantz (Asterix and the Vikings), and Guillaume Briat (Mansions of the Gods onwards).

The character was portrayed by actor Gérard Depardieu in every Asterix live-action film. He is frequently used as a human battering ram for opening locked doors or breaking through walls.

This remark is followed by him tapping his forehead.

In Asterix and the Normans he deduces from various clues that Cacofonix the bard has gone to Lutetia to pursue a career in popular music: this unusual display of intelligence on Obelix's part surprises Getafix. He extends this benevolence even towards the Romans, whom he rarely seems to view as oppressors but more as less-willing participants in his rough-housing. 1 at the box office.

It is based on the comic book Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods, which was the seventeenth book in the comic book series Asterix by Goscinny and Uderzo. 32 - Asterix and the class act Obelix owns the quarry where he chisels the menhirs himself.

Obelix is tall and massive.

Escaping into the apartments, Getafix brews the magic potion from ingredients in each of the rooms. While Squaronthehypotenus is reluctant to allow their stay, Senator Prospectus allows them to stay as part of Caesar's plan. 19 - Asterix and the Soothsayer And what more can be said about the success of Asterix in the film industry? Most of the occasions where Obelix demonstrates invulnerability include him being attacked physically rather than with sharp objects, as in Asterix and the Magic Carpet, when an arrow accidentally hits his bottom and he yells in agony, and thus showing that Obelix isn't above physical pain. and completed with honours the 12 tasks as decreed by Caesar one day when he was foolish enough to risk a bet with our incorrigible Gauls. 31 - Asterix and the Actress

He is about 6 feet 5 inches (196 cm) tall and he weighs more than 300 pounds (140 kg).

Obelix is kind-hearted, but socially inept—possibly because his strength means that others have had to adapt to him instead of vice versa. It received generally favorable reviews and has grossed over $34 million on a €31 million budget. Obelix is Asterix's closest friend (they even have the same birthday—although this is inconsistent with the comic Obelix and Co., where only Obelix's birthday is celebrated). https://asterix.fandom.com/wiki/Asterix:_The_Mansion_of_the_Gods?oldid=8115, Florian Gazan as Travaillerpluspourgagnerplus, Sébastien Lalanne as Radius (Unscrupulus), Franck Pitiot as Julius Humérus (Julius Monotonus), Damien Gillard as Médius, Roman brute and Roman, Benjamin Gauthier as a doctor, guide and Roman, Samuel Vincent as Tofungus, Mosaic Artist, Numidian and Roman 2, Elizabeth Bower as Impedimenta, Bacteria and Mrs Fulliautomatix, Andy Toth as Senator Fastidius, Cluelus, Radius and Guide, Marco Soriano as Senator Consensus, Roman Brute 1, Serius and Civilian 1, Michael Adamthwaite as Humerus and Roman Brute 2, Jason Simpson as Centurion Somniferus and Unhygienix. 30 - Asterix and Obelix all at Sea An international dub featuring a full Canadian cast was released on March 12, 2015 (in Singapore) with the following alterations: The film was released on 26 November 2014 in France across 696 theatres and earned $7.64 million on its opening week from nearly 780,000 admissions placing at No. In tradition, the Gauls celebrate their victory with a banquet atop the ruins of the mansions. It is never directly stated what the menhirs are used for, though it is hinted that they are just oversized knick-knacks; however they are probably a running-gag regarding the origins of the mystery surrounding Menhirs in ancient Europe, with the joke being that Obelix delivered them.

Obelix is noted for his fatness, the menhirs he carries around on his back and his superhuman strength.

Caesar begins the final part of his plan, razing the village.

1 - Asterix the Gaul

Although he does not have the impressive muscle-bound physique of the heroes Albert Uderzo drew at first, Asterix is the only anti-hero to boast such a collection of success stories and heroic feats.

Although they usually simply insult each other verbally they inevitably make up swiftly.

While cheerfully violent and enjoying a good fight, Obelix is far from brutal or sadistic: he tends to view fighting as a game and is generally friendly and polite (to the point of inappropriate courtesy) towards his opponents. This appears to only work on grown people as Obelix did not turn to stone as a baby, or may simply occur after drinking an excessive amount while still under the effects of a previous dose). In fact "obelisk" is also (in both French and English) a variant of the word obelus (obèle), a typographical mark ("†") often found in a companion role to that of the asterisk, after which his friend Asterix is named.

16 - Asterix in Switzerland

Throughout his adventures, where his legendary wile and the precious magic potion concocted by the druid Getafix allow him to escape from the direst situations, often covered with glory, Asterix has made off with Caesar's laurel crown, won a gold metal at the Olympic Games (without the benefit of the magic potion, if you please!)

From Asterix and the Banquet onwards—previously he had simply expressed ignorance of being fat, such as when he merely commented that he wished he had known he was too fat to pose as a lion in Asterix the Gladiator—Obelix is so in denial over this matter that he usually does not even notice when other people refer to him as "that fat one", and often shows total confusion over which fat person people are referring to.
