* Also not lost on the fandom: That part of the Last Guardian where Eoin Colfer says Trolls are smart, which actually makes sense. Lets take the Chimpanzee, considered to be the smartest non-human animal. But what most people don't know is that Chimpanzees are EXTREMELY violent and aggressive-in that one of the first thing they do when they fight is literally RIP THE GENITALS OFF. Not to mention they actually are willing to KILL a chimp baby in order to have sex with a female. Trolls given their primate-like description are probably similar to chimpanzee in behavior, they can be intelligent, it's just that they prefer to fight and are hyper-violent.

* Despite going [[{{Anvilicious}} on and on]] about how [[GreenAesop humans destroy the environment]], fairies are still using gas engines in the first book, and presumably have been for ''way'' longer than the humans have, so ''they'' would be responsible for most of the pollution in the world, not humans. [[{{Hypocrite}} And fairies are supposed to be way more advanced than humans, so they have no excuse - we, at least, are starting to phase fossil fuels out.]] May also be FridgeBrilliance, since the fairies are often shown to be not nearly as superior as they think they are, although this is never stated.
** Well, there are a lot less fairies, so most of the pollution probably is still humans, by virtue of our sheer numbers. There are numerous hints throughout the series that it's a lot less black and white than the fairies seem to think.

* A page-long dialogue sequence between Holly and Artemis midway through the second book where Holly asks why Artemis is so cold-hearted when his father was more noble. His answer was that he '''"made a mistake."''' Said mistake is explored in-depth in the sixth book.

hyper-violent.





** Already addressed in the Headscratcher page, odds are Artemis didn't actually mix sleeping pills with Champagne, but was probably some extremely powerful sedative(as sleeping pills don't provide instant knock out). He was just talking about celebrating with Champagne because he knows that if he told Butlers that it was a sedative he would subconsciously fight it off and considering they had literally ''seconds'' before the bio-bomb is launch he couldn't risk that.

* Artemis never takes out his iris cam while showering in EC. This either (1)Fuels the fire for the Holly-Artemis ship as it says she's watching through the iris cam, or (2)[[HoYay Ho Yay]] between Foaly and Artemis, which has been mentioned by certain people.
* If you're an animal lover, a good part of "The Last Guardian" counts - what happened to all those animals possessed by the berserkers after they departed? What about the dog the troll kicked, or the one Holly shot?

* In the first book, in order to [[spoiler: escape the effects of the bio bomb]], Artemis, Butler, and Juliet mix sleeping pills with champagne, an alcoholic beverage. Wasn't that basically how the the late HeathLedger bought the farm, that is, by mixing sleeping pills with alcohol?

* In The Lost Colony, Abbot forces the demons to maintain a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy highly militaristic culture]], and makes specific effort to educate young demons to become {{Blood Knight}}s. What triggers the warp phase? ''Bloodlust''. Also? ''"When an imp warps, that's the end of any magic they may have had."'' What does Abbot fear the most? What is the only challenge to his [[CharmPerson authority]] on the council? ''A warlock''. ''He's deliberately arresting the only threat to his rule.'' Unlucky for him, No.1 turned out an ActualPacifist.

* In "The Time Paradox", Holly tartly informs Artemis that his elf-kissing days are over. [[spoiler:As a matter of fact, Artemis has one elf-kiss left in him - and it saves his life in "The Last Guardian".]]
** [[spoiler:Arty, you closet sap. Giving the lady a toenail clipping would have been far more reliable and efficient.]] Anyway, what if she'd [[spoiler:[[FridgeHorror washed her face]]]]?

* In many time travel stories, when a person is threatened to be erased from existence because interference in the past sets off a chain reaction of events that causes their present selves to not exist, they usually just fade out of existence and reality simply changes along with their vanishing, [[NoLawOfConservationOfEnergy with complete disregard for the fact energy cannot be created nor destroyed]]. Eoin Colfer ingeniously demonstrated an obedience to the Law of Conservation of Energy by showing what most likely would happen if you killed your past self while they were in the present a la GrandfatherParadox. You "cease to exist" alright, but reality does not change around you, and "ceasing to exist" equals [[MadeOfExplodium blowing up like a nuclear bomb]].
