* RecordedSplicedConversation: In ''The Opal Deception'', Artemis needs an excuse to get out of school for a few days. He uses a audio editor to turn a relatively light-hearted conversation he'd just had with his mother into an angry voice mail for the principal of his school, accusing him of lax standards that have resulted in Artemis getting a nasty case of food poisoning that will require him to come home for a few days to recuperate.

* MookChivalry: Conspicuously averted in the first book by a half dozen pissed-off dock workers, who are more busy "watching their comrades, making sure they weren't alone in the assault" than with actually focusing on the towering, trained Butler who's baited them into a big, splashy fight. ("In fairness, they weren't even completely sober.")

* ExactWords: While in the household of "mud men," a fairy is compelled to obey their orders. However, these orders must be phrased exactly, saying stuff like "You really shouldn't do such-and-such" won't stop them from doing it, you have to actually say "don't do it" or "you may not."

* 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).
