The Normans have no fear as Redbeard and his pirates learn the hard way when they try heading north to escape the Gauls , which is a problem, as this means no fear of authority and thus no discipline. Their leader Timandahaf decides that he and his men must learn fear, as they pride themselves at knowing everything.
Plus, Timandahaf has heard that 'fear lends you wings', and mistakenly believes that fear will enable him and his men to fly. They decide to start their educational voyage in Gaul. Asterix and Obelix start Justforkix's training by getting him out of bed at the crack of dawn which is usually when he goes to bed and taking him down to the beach; as Asterix ponders how to proceed with the training, a terrified Justforkix spots the Normans' ship, and is stunned when Asterix and especially Obelix seem excited by the prospect of a Norman invasion.
Asterix and the Normans
His attempt to raise the alarm in the village goes just as badly; Vitalstatistix simply asks Asterix and Obelix to do a bit of reconaissance, and Getafix decides to brew a bit of magic potion, just in case. Justforkix' mood deteriorates when Asterix and Obelix report that the Normans have landed, and, quite apart from being alarmed, are splitting their sides laughing at the invaders' names all ending in "-af". The terrified Lutetian tries rousing the other villagers into fleeing, but instead just gets them fired up at the prospect of having someone other than the Romans to thump.
Timandahaf sends one of his warriors, Nescaf, to do a bit of scouting of his own, and he overhears Asterix and Obelix on their way out boar hunting, and boasting about their own lack of fear, but the Norman's mood improves when Justforkix catches up with them and sobs about how terrified he is - and sours again when Asterix and Obelix are able to calm him down.
Timandahaf decides they need to get Justforkix alone to teach them the meaning of fear, and they're in luck - he has decided to return to Lutetia, but a souvenir menhir from Obelix breaks his chariot, and he is kidnapped while attempting to repair it. Unfortunately, the Normans can't get their heads around the idea that they are the ones frightening him instead of the other way round, and they tie him up on the beach until he can scare them - if he fails, they'll throw him off a clifftop, and watch his fear make him fly.
In the meantime, Asterix and Obelix have found Justforkix's broken and deserted chariot, and Vitalstatistix sends them into the Norman camp to get answers; inevitably, a fight breaks out, and Asterix and Obelix are surprised to see that the Normans take more of a beating than the Romans thanks in part to the reviving effect of their drink of choice, apple brandy - a comparison emphasised when a Roman patrol shows up and gets caught in the crossfire.

When Asterix finally gets Timandahaf to explain what they want with Justforkix, he gets an idea and sends Obelix back to the village to fetch something that he says will really scare them, while Asterix himself stays behind as a second hostage. The "something" for which Obelix has been sent back to the village is the bard Cacofonix - except he isn't in the village. Fed up with having his talents unappreciated, he has taken Justforkix' advice and set out for Lutetia, but Obelix and Dogmatix are able to follow the trail of people complaining about the horrible noise and catch up with the bard, who agrees to return for Justforkix's sake and insists on entertaining the unfortunate Obelix and Dogmatix with a version of "This Old Man" that goes on for at least verses.
Meanwhile, Timandahaf's patience has run out, and he decides to have the two hostages executed. Justforkix manages to gain himself a stay of execution by offering to scare the Normans, but his attempts all fail miserably, and the Normans Firsthaf and Secondhaf prepare to throw him off the cliff Seeing his friend outnumbered moves Justforkix to get over his own fears and help out, if ineffectually.
Fortunately, he buys them just enough time for Obelix and Dogmatix to return with Cacofonix; the Normans initially laugh off the idea that the bard will scare them Just the thought of listening to Cacofonix's voice makes them ill, which Asterix declares evidence that they now know the meaning of fear.
