* NiceJobBreakingItHeroes: [[spoiler: As chapter 37 reveals, it was the bloodthirsty stupidity of the Royalist and Rebel factions that ultimately pushed Twilight Sparkle to create Nightmare Umbra, which in turn led to the Schism as an unintended side-effect of Twilight's attempt to stop her. In a more specific case, Princess/Queen Teneral of the Changelings taunted Twilight Sparkle at the final failed peace talks before open war broke out that Twilight could either force them into obedience, thus becoming a tyrant, or watch impotently as Equestria burned itself to the ground before picking up the pieces afterwards. This planted the seed that ultimately became Nightmare Umbra -- and, in an act of LaserGuidedKarma, Teneral is remembered as the ''last'' Changeling Queen because one of Nightmare Umbra's first acts of destruction was ripping Teneral to shreds.]]

After the defeat of Chrysalis, Celestia assigns Twilight the task of studying The Elements of Harmony. Over a thousand years later, Rainbow Dash wakes up underground, next to a dead stallion, with no memory of anything that has happened since Ponyville was assigned tornado duty, in a world very different to the one she is used to. Equestria has split in two, the magic of the world has faded, the geography, cultures and languages are not what she is familiar with and the first thing she does gets her in trouble with the Lunar Republic's police force.

* CrapsackWorld: The future version of Equestria... well, let's see: Celestia and Luna are ''dead''. A planet-wrecking apocalypse has siphoned away so much magic that the sapient races of Equestria either lost most of their powers, were ''rendered nonsapient'', or were ''driven extinct''. Pony civilization has shattered from the peaceful, harmonious unity they were under the Alicorn diarchy into two warring factions, the Solar Empire and the Luna Republic. Cutie Marks can apparently now mentally ''damage'' their bearers -- and since this world is grim enough it's possible to get Cutie Marks for talents in ''killing'', that just makes it worse. A MadGod is prophesied to return and finish the annihilation of the world. There's a psychopath running around trying to get his hooves on the Elements of Harmony as part of some mysterious plan. Yeah, this world sucks. No wonder Rainbow Dash is less than impressed with the future.

* TheDreaded: Charisma is basically considered impossible to beat in single combat and scares just about everyone who knows about her. Nightmare Umbra is even scarier as she's effectively a war goddess ponification of destruction.

* FauxAffablyEvil: Max Cash can act rather polite and friendly. But it has a disturbing undercurrent. He [[EvilCannotComprehendGood barely understands friendship]] and basically is just messing with heads. While not confirmed by the writer, a lot of Max's actions are similar to the characteristics of actual sociopaths.

* {{Gotterdammerung}}: Celestia and Luna are now [[spoiler: sealed in their respective celestial bodies, which happened after they ''voluntarily'' abdicated the Equestrian throne in the face of the CivilWar]]. Additionally, a magical disaster called the Schism has sucked away the vast majority of the planet's magic, possibly imprisoning it in the form of the Everstorm. See TheMagicGoesAyay.

* OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions: [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] Modern Equestria is both more scientifically advanced ''and'' more religious than Rainbow is used to. She considers it strange to think of the alicorns as gods or to pray to them. Twinkle Shine lampshades how this is different from what her class might expect.

She considers it strange to think of the alicorns as gods or to pray to them. Twinkle Shine lampshades how this is different from what her class might expect. One possibly reason why might be because of how the depletion of magic has left the general pony population weaker, and thus made once-mundane feats of old now only mythical to modern generations.

* AscendedToCarnivorism: A variation is revealed in chapter 37; dragons before the Schism ''could'' eat meat, but preferred not to, due to the abundance of sapient animals and the fact they could get just as much nourishment from gems. However, this ability was based on the high levels of ambient magic, so after the Schism, they had to revert to eating meat.



* CivilWar: The Solar Empire and Luna Republic ultimately descend from a particularly bloody and brutal war that was fought centuries ago, after the deaths of Twilight's original circle of friends. How bitter was it? [[spoiler: Celestia and Luna grew so sick of the two factions who claimed to be operating in ''their'' names, but wouldn't listen to either of their "chosen" rulers, that they abdicated and left Equestria in the hooves of Twilight Sparkle. And that was just the start of when things went wrong.]]

Yeah, this world sucks. No wonder Rainbow Dash is less than impressed with the future.

* FromBadToWorse: [[spoiler: The backstory of Nightmare Umbra's creation, as revealed by Spike in chapter 37: the budding CivilWar first drove Celestia and Luna to abdicate so that they couldn't be used as figureheads for factions they had nothing to do with. Then, under Twilight Sparkle's leadership, war ultimately broke out. When it destroyed Canterlot, a devastated Twilight created Nightmare Umbra as a way to force the reunification of ponydom, no matter how many lives it took. When it seemed like even that wasn't working, Twilight attempted to stop her creation, which produced the Schism as a mere byproduct of the battle.]]

* TheMagicGoesAway: The Schism [[spoiler: as part of Celestia and Luna's plan.]] This has had severely negative effects on the planet; for example, all ponies are vastly inferior in ability compared to what Rainbow Dash [[spoiler: and the other members of the Mane Six]] remember being capable of, whilst the griffons have nearly gone extinct, due to the low magic levels impacting on their genetic viability. This did make other species go extinct, like buffaloes.

Dragons suffered a DepopulationBomb effect, as the griffons larger ones suffocated under their own weight; those who survive have nearly gone extinct, due to carefully marshal their growth, lest they experience the same fate. Griffons have been afflicted by a SterilityPlague, as the low magic levels impacting pose potentially genocidal impacts on their genetic viability.
