* CaligulasHorse: Puddinghead appointed her pet parrot speaker of the house, even after it died she had it stuffed and insisted it was still alive. Of course it could actually talk while alive, even if all it said was praises for its owner.



* [[ClaspYourHandsIfYouDeceive Clasp Your Hooves If You Scheme]]: [[spoiler:Platinum]], all the time.

* DeathOfAChild:
** As would naturally happen in a pre-industrial society. Smart Cookie makes mention that of seven fillies she gave birth to, only four of them survived to adulthood. And considering that, historically, only one out of every three children survived to adulthood, [[ShownTheirWork the number even fits with a typical family]].
** Talonhoof makes an example of a young pony one of his minions spared during his rampage through Equestria.



* [[DirtyOldMan Dirty Old Stallion]]: Hurricane remains sexually active well into his golden years.
* [[DoesNotLikeMen Does Not Like Stallions]]: Sullamander.

* [[FairForItsDay Fair For His Day]]: In-Universe, Hurricane may come off as needlessly aggressive to modern Equestrians, but he was actually a lot more peaceful and diplomatic than most Commanders.

* ByNoIMeanYes: The ancient Manehattan ponies were an "easy and tempting target," except "an attack [on Manehattan] would become very unpleasant very quickly" thanks to the terrain, Unicorn magic, Pegasus weather control, and Earth Pony strength.



* UndignifiedDeath: Puddinghead died in the middle of a foolish dare to drink a gallon of cider while swallowing a goldfish atop a flagpole. She ended up falling off and breaking her neck, with nopony noticing she was dead for hours.

** 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]].

* 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.

* 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.
