** The first two rules of Rainbow Dash’s Ultimate Unicorn Obstacle Course Deluxe, Mark Three [[Film/FightClub sound suspiciously familiar.]] It gets lampshaded, too.
--->'''Trixie:''' Where is she getting these rules? This sounds like a crazy pony's checklist.
--->'''Twilight:''' Why is the second rule the same as the first?
--->'''Rainbow Dash:''' It's not! It’s more menacing, since I shouted the ‘do not’ part.

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal:
-->'''Trixie:''' "You can't be serious. Of all the convoluted, contrived, ''confounding'' coincidences, this one has to be the least profound, least precise, least ''possible'' possibility ever postulated by ponykind. It was just somepony setting off...a firework or something. Nothing at all like this...phenomenon you call a Rainboom. Puerile! Psychotic! ''Preposterous!''"

Added DiffLines:

* CompetitiveBalance: The purpose of the seven tasks in a Magician's Duel is in acknowledgement that magical prowess can manifest in different ways, and the three most prominent unicorns in the story illustrate this in different ways.
** UnskilledButStrong: Twilight Sparkle has the most raw magical power known to exist short of the Princesses, but is more likely to rely on that than any sort of finesse.
** WeakButSkilled: Rarity is capable of incredibly fine detailed work as part of her fashion business, but can't come anywhere near Twilight's or Trixie's strength levels.
** JackOfAllStats: Trixie has neither Rarity's precision nor Twilight's raw strength, but still performs very well in both areas, [[spoiler:and that balance allows her to officially retain the title of Great and Powerful.]]

* PairTheSpares: Defied when Trixie and Pinkie are talking about the relationships their friends are in.
-->'''Trixie:''' "I suppose next you’ll tell me Applejack and Rarity are-"
-->'''Pinkie:''' “Oh ho ho, oh no, ha ha ha, noooooo no, wow, that’s just...that’s probably the silliest thing I’ve ever heard, those two? Ha HA, that’d be a laugh. Ahhhh, oh Trixie, you’ve got some crazy ideas.”

* {{Badass}}: Twilight easily qualifies, as does Applejack. Given how she casually deals with [[LightningBruiser Rainbow Dash]], Trixie probably qualifies as well. [[spoiler: By the time she's done her soul-searching quest, she definetly does. She fights '''Dragons'''.]]
