* TheFairFolk: "The People": Arrogant, and annoyed with the Mud People, yes. Interestingly, all of the fairies share a common ancestor: [[PteroSoarer pterosaurs]].

to:

* TheFairFolk: "The People": Arrogant, and annoyed with the Mud People, yes. The first fairy we meet in the series comes close to being genuinely scary (though later ones are much less so; despite their contempt for humans they don't act terribly different from us, give or take a few cultural mores). Interestingly, all of the fairies share a common ancestor: [[PteroSoarer pterosaurs]].

* CanisLatinicus: The American editions turn the Fowl family motto into this.

* CanisLatinicus: The American editions turn the Fowl family motto into this. While technically correct (In Latin, word order is less important), the ''preferred'' rendering is "''Aurum Potestas Est''", rather than the American edition "''Aurum Est Potestas''".

* MustBeInvited: Any species capable of magic. Forcing your way in without an invitation is a good way to loose [[VomitIndiscretionShot the entire contents of your stomach]], and repeat offenses cause loss of spellcasting.

* MustBeInvited: Any species capable of magic. Forcing your way in without an invitation is a good way to loose [[VomitIndiscretionShot the entire contents of your stomach]], and repeat offenses cause loss of spellcasting. This is actually a weaker version of the original spell, once upon a time it would strike the victim instantly dead.

%%* InsufferableGenius: Artemis, Foaly.%* InsufferableGenius:
** Artemis in the first two books, though later in the series it's played more for laughs as he becomes a nicer person.
** Foaly is ''always'' this



** Artemis and Holly. Well. Sort of.

to:

** Artemis and Holly. Well. Sort of.Holly develop a really strong friendship over the series, and then thanks to time travel drawing their ages together and a stressful situation [[spoiler: they actually kiss]]. Artemis quickly ruins it, for reasons personal to him, and when they return to their normal time a line is drawn firmly under the whole thing.

* BadassInDistress: In the first book, when Holly gets kidnapped by Artemis, [[spoiler: she uses a cot to ''smash through concrete'', plants an acorn she snuck in, uses a loophole in an eye-to-eye command to go around the house, neutralizes Juliet with the ''mesmer'', and punches Artemis. And just when you think things can't get worse for the kidnappers, [[OhCrap a troll comes in...]] ]]
