** Talonhoof has elements of UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan, UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun, and [[Literature/LordOfTheRings Sauron]]. His battles with Star Burst are also similar to the rivalry between [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} Ghazkull Thraka and Commissar Yarrik]].

* HoldTheLine: Star Burst's force does this at the Battle of the Corridor to allow civilians time to escape Talonhoof's horde. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome It works, providing a much needed morale boost]].

* PuppetKing: The Throne of the Kingdom of Unicorns has fallen far from the days of Æthelric. After some three-thousand years (give or take) of schemes and the occasional weak ruler, King Aurum [[spoiler:and Platinum]] basically has to do what the DecadentCourt wants, and it is no secret that they want to overthrow him and his family. And since Æthelric forced the Kingdom into existence [[WeAREStrugglingTogether to prevent all of the nobles from waging wars on each other]], and the nobles [[DecadentCourt haven't changed a bit…]] Well, let's just say that "implosion" would be a good word for a speculative Post-Royalty situation.

** Meanwhile, the Kingdom of Unicorns was forged by then Grand Archduke Æthelric the Stern of Two Dozen Sons, forcing the lesser Lords to swear fealty to him to prevent open war among all the other Unicorn rulers.

* GreatBigBookOfEverything: Well, more like "Great Big Book of Laws," but the Articles of Command (the full bound version at least) is described as 20x8 inches, [[{{Doorstopper}} consists of over 1600 pages, weighs forty pounds, and has 300 article]]s ''at least'' (the US Constitution has 7, not counting any that may be in the the 27 amendments), which covers (among other things one would assume) in no uncertain terms was is considered inside and outside the Commander's powers, and what to do when a Commander shows signs of turning into a Tyrant, right down to the methods of execution and how to dispose of the body. Not bad for a Stratocracy.

** Platinum herself wasn't above this, making sure to curry the favour of one of Benzatine's servants (who was pregnant with his son's foal, in addition to being his daughter as well) after his death to prevent said foal being declared Benzatines' heir.

* BadassAndBaby: In a jury-rigged papoose made from bloodied bandages and stitching needles.
* BadassBeard: Along with having one himself, this was a ''very'' important thing the stallion that Clover married needed to have by Star-Swirl's standards. Fortunately, Hurricane delivers.
* BadassGrandpa: [[spoiler:Star-Swirl the Bearded]]. Also Hurricane's son Star Burst, who fought in the Talonhoof Assault in his ''eighties'', personally fighting Talonhoof himself and nearly killing him ''twice''.
** In fact, at the age of fifty at the time of the Assault, Talonhoof counts as well. Given the typically short lifespans of the period, not many lived to that age, fewer still were out leading massive armies on a quest for conquest.
* BadassFamily: [[spoiler: Hurricane, Wind Whistler and Pansy]]. Hurricane's second family, with Clover, probably counts as well.



* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler: Private Pansy, of all ponies. Star-Swirl as well.]]
