Added DiffLines:

* ScienceFantasy: The premise of book one is basically a hi-tech spy thriller crossed with the old fairy tale about the kid who cons the gold off of leprechauns.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''The Time Paradox'' Artemis (a token smart guy) argues against the theory of evolution as part of a distraction, and later tells Butler confidentially that as a theory it "has more holes than a Dutch dam made of Swiss cheese". Probably meant to be a parody of this trope, since by this point in the series Artemis has made discoveries that shatter global scientific consensus already.

* {{Fanservice}}: Both graphic novels released so far have found an excuse to put Holly in a somewhat... [[ShowerOfAngst revealing]] [[VictoriasSecretCompartment light]]. The scenes in question ''were'' both in the original books, though.



** There seems to be little race conflict among the People themselves, but Arc Sool is fired from the LEP for writing in a journal that he wishes to eliminate the Eighth Family (the demons).

* OurCentaursAreDifferent: Well, the only one we see is a TechnoWizard and InsufferableGenius, and pretty much the only person who can understand his TechnoBabble is Artemis. It is mentioned, however, that most centaurs are like this: without magic, but very intelligent (though Foaly presumably still qualifies as genius).

* TeenGenius: Artemis, of course. And Minerva, who managed to calculate when and where demons will show up on Earth, without having ever seen the fairy book.[[spoiler: Although she did have Queffor ({{sharing a body}} with Abbot) to give her the calculations for it.]]

* BeserkButton: Don't call Loafers short. Don't bring up Abbott's given name. And whatever you do, DO NOT threaten Artemis or Juliet around Butler.

* DeadpanSnarker: So many. Artemis, Foaly, Holly, and Mulch (and occasionally Juliet) enjoy trading sarcastic statements. Mulch lampshades it in the narration of the fifth book:

* TattoAsCharacterType: In ''EternityCode'' Arno Blunt's neck tattoos clearly mark him as a thug--and make him easy to identify. {{Lampshade}}d in a different plotline when Loafers's tattoo artist talks him out of neck tattoos for the same reason.
