* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Sombra gets even ''more'' points with this here than just what he shares with his canon counterpart. Basically, the reason Twilight and Nyx (plus Spike and Peewee) go to the Empire is so Twilight could help reorganize the library system. They need to do this because Sombra had destroyed all their card catalogs, keeping anypony that wasn't him from finding anything so he wouldn't have to destroy information he might need later.



* GenreSavvy: Prince Blueblood, unlike his father, realizes how the Duke is always OutGambitted by Celestia.

* ContinuitySnarl: It's small, and easy to ignore, but in ''Alicornundrum'', Ink Spot claims to have been involved with Twilight by the time of the events of "Lesson Zero", which would place ''Nyx's Family'' and ''Nightmare Night and Nyx'' early on or before Season 2... except they clearly take place ''after'' "The Crystal Empire", putting them somewhere in Season 3.
** However, this may mean that something caused it to happen later than in canon.

* NoSell: Fluttershy, having once successfully Stared down a dragon in the episode ''Dragonshy'', tries it again with Grundle, but is unsuccessful for two reasons: first, the dragon she'd Stared down before was older and utterly exhausted, whereas Grundle is a teenager who's wide awake and full of energy. Second, half the effect of the Stare is from it reminding the target of their own mother's condemning glare... and Grundle ''hates'' his mother.

* BoobyTrap: Rainbow Dash expects the Tomb of the Founders to have these, but Twilight and Professor Dubious insist (correctly) that there aren't - the tomb was in constant use, and putting up traps would just endanger the ponies using it. In his efforts to point out how ridiculous the idea is, Dubious then compares it to "laying booby traps around your kitchen", and is rather dumbfounded when Rainbow Dash says she HAS had to booby-trap her kitchen from time to time (non-lethally, of course), and explains why:
--> '''Rainbow Dash:''' "You've never tried to keep a batch of fresh muffins away from Derpy."
