* TheCharmer: Effortlessly manages to get Raindrops squeein within minutes of conversation, [[spoiler:and eventually manages to sleep with her. It wasn't all part of some fiendish plan, he legitimately had feelings for her. But the whole "working for your greatest enemy, whom you despise" is always going to be a romance-killer.]]



* DependingOnTheWriter: One that happens in the same story even. During "Voice of the Sun", the early chapters portray him as being capable of making valid, calm and rational points. The later chapters written by [=TalonAndThorn=] make him a bit more prone to mad shouting and ranting.



* LargeHam: He was an actor, after all.

* IJustWantToBeNormal: During "Voice of the Sun", she declares how she wishes she'd never become an Element Bearer, or that she was so strong and angry.



* NeverLiveItDown: The one time she really lost it and assaulted somepony - a classmate at Summer Flight Camp - led to broken bones and hospitalization. The foal she assaulted still walks with a limp and still has a restraining order on her. She had to live with the reputation until her family moved away from Cloudsdale, but she still regrets it.

* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: His seduction of Raindrops is considered this by a significant portion of the fanbase.]]



* {{Determinator}}: As Gilda notes, he always accepted every honor duel with his brother, regardless of how hopelessly outmatched he was. She's not certain whether he was determined, or just plain stupid.



* GoodThingYouCanHeal: One of the boons Corona gave him. Good if you're not much of a fighter, not so good if you're from a culture that considers scars a sign of honor... and the magic heals ''all'' of them.



* NoIndoorVoice: During "Voice of the Sun", he's near-constantly bellowing everything. Even Kindle thinks it's too much.

** It's revealed that she's a pony who learns by ''doing'' something, and that learning from a book is difficult for her. She compares learning spells by book to learning to dance by book: you might know all the steps, but unless you get up and do them, you won't know what you're doing.

* ProperlyParanoid

to:

* ProperlyParanoidProperlyParanoid: She lives in Ponyville, which is frequently attacked by monsters, is the subject of political schemeing from the Night Court, and has to occasionally tangle with an insane sun goddess. Needless to say, she takes steps to be this.

to:

* TokenEvilTeammateTokenEvilTeammate: Compared to her teammates, a little, but usually she's just a little on the abrasive side and more willing to pull underhanded stunts.



* YouNeedToGetLaid

* ShipperOnDeck: When she sees Pinkie Pie and Blueblood together, she ''instantly'' comes up with a trashy romance plot involving the two of them and basically orders them to go to a certain spot where [[BlatantLies the clouds will be extra romantic, purely by coincidence]]. When they kiss, a squeal can be heard from said clouds.

So yes, she does leave Ponyville hanging... often... but she has good reasons for it. Furthermore, because the position was given to her, she doesn't feel she deserves the position anyway, which makes her feel depressed.]]

** And, admittedly, their only real experience with Corona up until that point involved Corona [[WouldHurtAChild threatening to slaughter captive children]], attempting to murder them all, and boasting about how it is all "for their own good."
