Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: Shane is completely right to chew out Luna after her playing with a machine gun nearly kills him and the Mane Six.
** Likewise, he calls out Celestia's hypocrisy of preaching that he has to trust her when she doesn't trust him enough to have a fork during dinner.


Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: While Shane is very insistent he has to destroy all weapons and ammunition recovered from the crash, he does offer to the unicorn in charge of salvaging it to dispose of the ammo "one round at a time".

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: At one point, Shane seems to be showing the guards porn, with one of them commenting that he's not sure what he's looking at but he likes it. Turns out it was a car magazine.

Added DiffLines:

* DudeNotFunny: Goes both ways. Shane isn't amused when Luna remarks that he's legally closer to a pet than a prisoner, while Luna isn't happy that Shane jokes she tried to rape him when she walked in on him bathing.

Added DiffLines:

* InnocentlyInsensitive: The Mane Six all beg to go along on an errand the Princesses and Shane have to take care of the next day. It's only after they're reluctantly allowed that they learn he's going to be seeing the remains of his comrades and deciding how to handle the funeral arrangements.

Added DiffLines:

* SherlockScan: Shane manages to figure out quite a bit about Equestria just from looking around. That his cell door is steel means they know metallurgy. The rivets being identical indicates they have factories capable of producing standardized equipment. Leaving his sidearm in the room with him shows they're either insanely trusting or unfamiliar with firearms.
** Likewise the ponies pick up a lot about humans from casual remarks or simple explanations, such as him explaining the relative price of fake sugar versus real sugar.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: Shane, a handgun is not a headscratcher. Especially not when it's loaded. Both Shane and Muppetz are Marines and therefore drilled in gun safety, but Shane's lost most of his sense of self-preservation come this point.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Shane towards Twilight, ironically against her own brother. Shane's response to her being "attacked" (Read: tickled) is a gun stock to Shining Armor's face.

** This also extends to the real reason why he listens to Twilight: [[spoiler: She sounds like his sister]].



* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: {{Averted}} and {{Defied}} by the author. While Shane ''is'' a jerk at times, it's also made clear that he's just one person who is in a very stressful situation, so it's really not fair or right to use him as an example of all of humanity being evil.

While Shane ''is'' a jerk at times, it's also made clear that he's just one person who is in a very stressful situation, so it's really not fair or right to use him as an example of all of humanity being evil. He also proves that for all of his bluster, he has some goodness deep inside him.



* MoralityPet: Twilight seems to have shades of this to Shane, presumably as a result of him recognizing her voice as the one that talked to him in his slumber. Due to that, he listens to her more than he does anyone else, to the point of agreeing to do some things he doesn't like without being cornered into it like Luna and Celestia have to resort to doing.

Due to that, sister]]. In general he listens to her more than he does anyone else, to the point of agreeing to do some things he doesn't like without being cornered into it like Luna and Celestia have to resort to doing.


Added DiffLines:

* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Being a Marine, Shane acts like this. He's proud of being a jarhead and loves a good fight and gets along well with other military types (except for Shining Armor), while being unused to the general demeanor of the ponies.
