* SmartPeoplePlayChess: One of Artemis' covers was a chess prodigy. The guard, also a chessmaster [[TheChessmaster (notthat kind),]] didn't believe it and challenged him to a game. Artemis [[CurbStompBattle beat him in six moves]].

* FriendshipMoment: Many across the series from Holly and Artemis especially, but the ones that stand out are Artemis giving Holly the chance to [[spoiler: say goodbye to Commander Root]] and in the last book, [[spoiler: Artemis realizing that yes, he would go to the ends of the Earth (and below it) for Holly.]]

** The first book starts simple enough, Fowl faction vs LEP recon in a hostage situation. Then Mulch has his own agenda, Cudgeon has his own agenda, Holly's agenda shifts away from Root's agenda, and then there's a '''troll'''.

* GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity: At one point in the first book, Artemis' mother demands that he fire a maid that displeased her. Artemis agrees to, then offers to hire Butler's sister Juliet as a replacement, which is approved. Since Juliet ''was'' the maid in question (Something Mrs. Fowl was not capable of realizing given her mental state for much of the book), this resulted in no actual change to the status quo.

** I'm the nut![[labelnote:explanation]]Artemis is in a specially-armored deep-sea diving suit, tracking down a giant squid. Unfortunately, he underestimates the squid's intelligence when he realizes the squid is tracking ''him''. He sees the squid pick up a large chunk of a sunken ship in a tentacle and notes that it's like it's wielding a hammer or mallet of some sort. Artemis thinks to himself "Okay, it's got a hammer, what sort of nut does it need to crack?" Cue OhCrap reaction when Artemis realizes ''he's the nut''.[[/labelnote]]

* FindTheCure: ''The Time Paradox'': the only cure for Angeline Fowl's disease is the brain fluid of the silky sifaka lemur - The catch? Silky sifakas went extinct eight years ago. [[spoiler:Artemis himself made sure of that]].

-->'''Artemis:''' Let me fill you in on the weapons status. I am unarmed. But Butler here, my ... ah ... butler, has a Sig Sauer in his shoulder holster, two shrike throwing knives in his boots, a derringer two-shot up his sleeve, garrotte wire in his watch, and three stun grenades concealed in various pockets. Anything else, Butler?\\

* FantasticRacism: The fairies are prejudiced against humans. This is presented as partly justified in the sense that, to some extent, HumansAreTheRealMonsters, but to some extent it's obviously a product of the fairies' recognisably [[{{Irony}} human]] limitations of perspective. The main reason cited is how unecological human actions are, but a favorite complaint is also [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking how disgusting it's human toilets are indoors]]. The fairy races are also intolerant of each other, but with at least one being AlwaysChaoticEvil, it's not surprising.
** As of The Atlantis Complex, we see [[spoiler: Turnball Root]] commenting on how the fairies are wasting resources to the point of [[spoiler: throwing away something that would have only taken a dab of silicon gel to fix. The fact that it's also a mastercomputer of a space probe makes this an example of bad security as well]].
