* {{Fangirl}}: She is one for the Unicorn wizard Star Swirl the Bearded;
** She dresses up as him for Nightmare Night in "Luna, Eclipsed".
** She and Princess Cadance attend the Star Swirl the Bearded Travelling Museum in "Three's a Crowd".
** In "A Hearth's Warming Tail", she briefly goes on a tangent about how skilled and knowledgable he was, before Spike snaps her out of it.
-->'''Twilight''': It was said of Snowfall that she was almost as studied as Star Swirl the Bearded. Almost, since everypony knows that Star Swirl was an expert at everything from transfiguration, dimensional calibration, teleportation—
-->'''Spike''': [[DeadpanSnarker We get it, Star Swirl's awesome]].



* OutOfFocus: In Season 2, compared to her role in Season 1. She had only four focus episodes, has been in more of a supporting character role in most episodes, and has been missing entirely from three. Quite odd considering that she's supposed to be the lead protagonist of the mane cast. The writers clearly reveled in not needing to shoehorn her into every story after "Lesson Zero", which is more or less a good thing, considered a sign of flexibility on their part. Twilight appears to have lived up to her lead protagonist reputation once more in Season 3 to a certain degree where she's been generally of at least moderate importance in most episodes, typically not being present only when it wouldn't make sense for her to show up. Season 4 was a step backwards, giving her about the same amount of exposure as Season 2. Ironically considering her ascension to princesshood in the season prior, she received only six focus episodes. Of these six, two were the premiere, two were the finale, and the remaining two, "Twilight Time" and "Three's A Crowd", focused more on the Cutie Mark Crusaders and Discord respectively. She has been remarkably out of focus in Season 6 thus far as well.

* ParentalSubstitute: Can be seen as a mother or sister figure to Spike knowing that she hatched him as part of passing the entrance exam at her school as revealed in "Cutie Mark Chronicles" and also following the events in "Owl's Well That Ends Well". The parental skills are further supported by her remarks to Pinkie in "Baby Cakes". She seems to know well what babies need.

The IDW comics #40 shows she was taking care of him when he was a baby and his crib stood in her room.

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: There are '''''SO''''' many moments of troubles she faces that could have easily been solved by her just using her magic. The only mitigation may be that we are never really told how most of Twilight's powers work in any real detail, what their limits are, etc.
