** FauxAffablyEvil: Turnball Root, who compliments Holly right after kidnapping her. He doesn't really care about ''anyone'' except for his human wife Leonor (and even then he kept her in thrall so that she wouldn't ever think of leaving him) and is willing to kill his own trusted lackey if needed without a hint of remorse.

** There's something in every book really. The infamous Biobomb is described as firing blue light that only kills living beings, while leaving material unaffected. Even if we assume it's not really the visible light that is the damaging agent, in Opal Deception Holly uses her helmet to shield the bomb, and when it proves insufficient she engages her wings and [[OutrunTheFireball races against the rays!]] And succeeds! She'd have to be going FTL to manage this.

He manages to jump out of the crater and begins to pass through the magical barrier. Holly is holding his hand, pulling him through, and Artemis thinks that a new life is ahead of him as an ambassador between humans and the People. And then the Gate kicks in and Artemis is dragged back in the crater. Butler doesn't make it to pull him out. Of course, it was only a DisneyDeath, but still...]]

Originally, the tale of an Irish [[TeenGenius pubescent]] [[VillainProtagonist evil]] [[InsufferableGenius genius]] and his efforts to [[AmbitionIsEvil acquire money and power]] by exploiting the [[BeneathTheEarth secret underground world]] of [[TheFairFolk fairies]] living [[DepartmentofRedundancyDepartment beneath the world]] using both magic and [[AppliedPhlebotinum advanced supertechnology.]] In later books in the series, he becomes a more benevolent fellow, working cooperatively with the fairies to curtail human mischief. The series takes cues from suspense, [[ActionAdventureTropes action]], [[TheCaper "heist"]] crime films, and ''Film/JamesBond''-esque spy movies and transplants them into a [[UrbanFantasy modern fantasy setting]].

** 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]]
