** The first book mentions that Butler's family are all trained at a school in Israel but Butler later remembers something from the Swiss academy. ''Eternity Code'' explains that the school moves every five years and that Butler spent the first few years in Israel until it moved to Switzerland.
** Mulch somehow uses the Gift Of Tongues to talk to some dogs in ''Arctic Incident'' even though he's lost his magic. ''Lost Colony'' handwaves this by saying both Mulch and Doodah Day each have a spark of magic left that lets them use the gift. Sadly this is contradicted by ''Atlantis Complex'' that says Bobb Ragby can't use the Gift since he lost his magic and Mulch implies he had to learn English.

* DevelopmentHell: The live action film.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: A fair amount of Fairy technology and equipment considered superior to the human variety at the start of the series by either the characters or the author have become decidedly less so as the years have gone by. Notable examples include wrist GPS, wafer-thin laptop computers and the iris-cam. Several Future Soldier Programs currently in development will almost certainly make the original LEP Recon jumpsuit the next casualty.



* ShoutOut: Book Six, and Artemis is playing the defense. Cue [[AceAttorney "But this creature is magical,' objected Artemis, banging the podium with his fist"]]
** There's also Artemis' little brother Myles who seems overly fond of his father's cravat...
** Again in Book Six, Mulch talking to [[spoiler:Opal Koboi]]. "[[TheDarkKnight I bet you would set the world on fire just to see it burn.]]" What's really weird is that this shows up in the U.S. copy of the book, which was released over a week before the premier of TheDarkKnight....
** Lampshaded in Book seven:
---> Artemis: "The lives of many are more important than the lives of the few."
---> Mulch: "I saw that on StarTrek."
** In Book Seven, Mulch mentions a "[[HellsKitchen program about an angry, foul-mouthed chef and his staff that he enjoys watching,"]]
** Juliet using [[WalkerTexasRanger a roundhouse kick]] to take out [[ChuckNorris a bearded cowboy]].
** A chapter named Murder Most Fowl from the Time Paradox is also the title of a book. There's also two references to ''{{Lord of the Rings}}'' in the same book. 'all real, just like Lord of the Rings' and 'like one of Tolkien's creatures'.
** Artemis also uses the alias Stefan Bashkir, the same name as Stefan from {{The Supernaturalist}}
** Chapter sampling from the second book: [[FromRussiaWithLove To Russia With Gloves]], [[MuchAdoAboutNothing Mulch Ado About Nothing]].
** Three of Commander Root's cousins were in the movie of TheWizardOfOz.
