Artemis Fowl contains examples of:
- Glamour: Inverted in the trailer, in that the fairy Artemis contacts in Vietnam initially appears to them as old and wrinkled, and then changes to a young and beautiful appearance, and it's implied her old-looking form was the illusion, and not the young one.
- Our Weapons Will Be Boxy in the Future: The futuristic weapons seen in the hands of fairy recon troops (and Artemis) in the trailer have a perfectly rectangular shape, with convex ridges on either side being the only deviation.
- Power Floats: In the trailer, the fairy in Vietnam floats above the ground when she starts to take on a more youthful appearance before Artemis and Butler.
