** After redeeming Nightmare Moon, Rarity begins a campaign of apologising and atoning to every pony she ever slighted during her youth (and there were many). Goes a bit out of hand with a few of them who had already come to terms with it, disliked Rarity opening old wounds, and rather preferred not to get money and letters of recommendation from childhood bullies.
* BoringButPractical: Teleporting apples. They are usable by any pony with a functional mouth, provide their own magical power, and can bypass most conventional wards.

* TalkingToThemself:
** Almost all of the six to some degree. Twilight's overactive mind tends to split off and go off on tangents, criticize herself, and even bicker out loud. According to WordOfGod, it's going to result in [[spoiler:the creation of [[SplitPersonality a whole new person]] altogether.]]
** Fluttershy gained her confidence in a moment of crisis when her other self essentially smacked her around until she did something instead of crying about being helpless. Rainbow Dash is so prone to zoning out and having long internal monologues that it freaks her friends out, and Rarity is no stranger to analyzing, second-guessing and criticizing her own actions.

* ForWantOfANail / InSpiteOfANail: The story zigzags between these two. The ponies lives are profoundly changed yet they still ultimately get drawn together anyway. Maybe because [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles everypony everywhere has a special magical connection with her friends, maybe even before she's met them]].
* GreenThumb: Twilight gained her cutiemark when a spell gone out of control (thanks to Fluttershy's Cloudboom) put her in direct rapport with every single plant in Sweet Apple Acres. Even after the event died down, she maintains a constant link with surrounding plantlife, expending half of her magic supply to do so (and she has a massive supply). Not only can she persuade plants to do anything from dropping their fruit to moving around for her, she managed to locate and send a message to Jackie halfway across Equestria simply by exploiting the link between plants until she found something within range of the target, and later grew apples allowing the consumer to teleport. (For reference's sake, a conventional location spell would take several lifetimes to cover the expected distance. Exploiting Equestria's plantlife took ''seconds''.)
* [[GuileHero Guile Heroine]]: Rarity is a less powerful Element of Magic than Twilight, but she excels at contingency plans and exploiting flaws. To the point of consciously holding herself back so she won't hurt others.
* HiveMind: A [[TheMultiverse multiversal]] one exists, consisting of every version of Pinkie Pie that was ever imagined. Dianne is connected to it after she sees the Rainbow created by the Elements Of Harmony, and fights a constant, potentially losing battle to stay as she is despite its attempts to make her more like Canon!Pinkie.
