Thanks to the ringing crow of «Cock-doodle-doo!!!» to be found in many of the Asterix album pages, the Village rooster is the series’ major animal star – except for Dogmatix (and the boars, of course!). As a matter of fact, the rooster receives a well-earned special tribute when Albert Uderzo dedicates a story to him in Asterix and the Class Act.
Chanticleerix – the name of this proud rooster - successfully confronts the imposing imperial eagle, full of its alleged Roman superiority. Even though the deck first seems to be stacked against it, the Gaulish rooster manages to win the fight, thanks to the help of Dogmatix... and a bit of magic potion. Let it be known: the Village animals are also indomitable fighters
