-->'''The Doctor''': Now, the TARDIS is equipped with a special device called a chameleon circuit. Whenever she lands somewhere, in the first nanosecond of arrival, faster than a living thing can even blink, she scans every structure within a thousand miles, creating a detailed map of the area to cross reference with cultural commonalities that allows her to pick out the perfect disguise in order to blend seamlessly into the new environment. (...) And then she appears as a big blue police box from 1963 Earth.

* {{Adorkable}}: The Doctor comments on the peculiarities of Equestira in a lovably nerdy (and longwinded) way. He has a serious tendency to rant, honestly, it's a skill. Twilight? Your eye is twitching.

* ArtifactDomination: [[spoiler: Tagati's mask, but it really just makes things easier for the entity possessing her]].
* BadassBoast: The Doctor's specialty.



* BlitheSpirit: This Doctor is an optimistic, talkative one who tries his best to distract ponies from danger. He has a bottomless supply of clever jokes. [[NightmareFetishist Nightmare fetishism]] also helps him stay upbeat.

* DistressedDude: The Doctor (as is his usual style) in [[spoiler: ''Along Came A Spider'', twice. Second time with another bloke for company]].



* TheDreaded: The Doctor gets named the "God-Slayer". [[spoiler: In fairness, this was an EldritchAbomination that set up a ReligionOfEvil using MindControl, so it's kinda normal for him]].

Topped with a pun. Yup. The whole episode is just one rollercoaster ride of this sort.

to:

* MrFixit: Guess Who? [[GadgeteerGenius He fixes things up better than new]]! (Although that does tend to bring too much [[UnwantedHarem attention from mares]]).
* MusicalWorldHypotheses: Every now and then, ''completely out of the blue'', we're treated to a (spoof of a well-known) song. Even when [[RealityWarper Pinkie]] isn't around.
