* {{Reconstruction}}: To an extent, Cloud Kicker is a reconstruction of the "Charlie", from TwoAndAHalfMen, character type. She's actually relatively nice, and clearly has rules she follows, and isn't exploiting people.

* ImAHumanitarian: [[spoiler: Turns out that, 900 years before the show, Griffons partook of pony meat when they took them prisoner. Too bad this seals an Archduke's fate when Shadow finds out.]]

* WrongGenreSavvy: Most characters act like they’re in a fairly realistic military low fantasy story with GrayAndGreyMorality. [[DownplayedTrope They’re not exactly wrong]], especially in the early part of the story, but this is still part of the BlackAndWhiteMorality high fantasy setting of My Little Pony, and discrepancies show, especially in how a lot of ponies assume that Nightmare Moon’s rebellion was just a dynastic power struggle, and Celestia killed Luna and covered it up. The Wrong Genre Savvyness start to show more as the story goes on and the Gray and Grey start to markedly lighten and darken.

* WretchedHive: Freeport is a NotSoSafeHarbor ruled by greedy merchant-princes, its guards are so corrupt they are actually expected to supplement their income with bribes, most people prefer personal blood feuds to get “justice” anyway, and it’s a haven for mercenaries, spies, and legalized piracy. There’s a fairly good justification for why a major port city is allowed to go on like this--it sits on an archipelago right between Equestria, Gryphonia, and Zebrica, meaning none of the nations can make any move on it without the other two seeing it as a threat.

* BreatherEpisode: ''Freeport Venture: Shimmer-mare's Birthday''. The two sequels revolved around, respectively [[spoiler: an undead monster hunting a child for being a Freemind and an attack by time-traveling necromancers.]] This is a story about a child panicking over being unable to find the perfect gift for her mentor.
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Freeport Venture: Shimmer-mare's Birthday'', everyone but Kukri and Sunset are demoted. Puzzle and Strumming both only play a minor role, with only a few lines each.

''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/28239/The-Life-and-Times-of-a-Winning-Pony The Life and Times of a Winning Pony]]'' ([[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8154888/1/The_Life_and_Times_of_a_Winning_Pony also available at FF.Net]]) is a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfic by Chengar Qordath. The story tracks the life and times of Cloud Kicker, a fun-loving EthicalSlut with a tendency to have lots of random sexual encounters and end up in wild misadventures. The story weaves reasonably well into actual episode screentime, and also is unique in pointing out some of the [[Main/ThePowerOfFriendship cronyism]] inherent in Equestrian society.

* ElementalEmbodiment: In ''A Thousand Maks'', Strumming and Puzzle come across a stone spirit bound in the walls of the Blood Stripes’ base as a security system. Air spirits are also mentioned.

* ElementalEmbodiment: In ''A Thousand Maks'', Strumming Numerous elemental spirits appear, and Puzzle come across in their natural state they seem to be formless beings inhabiting their native element, but can adopt and maintain physical form as long as they're in contact with their element. They're usually seen when they've been bound by magic to serve as magical security systems, such as a wood spirit bound within a door or a stone spirit bound in the walls of the Blood Stripes’ base as a security system. Air wall. So far, stone, air, wood, water and metal spirits are also have all appeared or been mentioned.

* NightmareFetishist: Midnight Sparkle. Her reaction to a unicorn lieutenant who made the mistake of [[BullyingADragon trying to pick a fight with]] [[{{Badass}} Shadow Kicker]] was to excitedly ask him if he's going to die.

* EvilChancellor: {{Averted}}. The story appears to set up [[TheArchmage Sunbeam Sparkle]] as this at first, what with her ruthless pragmatism, love of LoopholeAbuse and dislike for Princess Celestia's gentler touch. However, she remains loyal to Celestia throughout the story, making her more of a TokenEvilTeammate.



* GrayAndGreyMorality: Both sides of the conflict have reasons to fight, and neither are exactly guilt free. [[spoiler:It shifts more towards BlackAndWhiteMorality by the third act, as Nightmare Moon and her followers take control of the rebel side using blood magic and [[HumanSacrifice pony sacrifice]].]]



* LighterAndSofter: The side story ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/333814/the-great-snowball-war The Great Snowball War]]'' is a story involving Midnight participating in a snowball fight with foals and going overboard to win, eventually involving the other significant players from the Lunar Rebellion [[spoiler:including Princess Celestia herself]]. It's a rather lighthearted slice of life story that shows a glimpse of what old Equestria is like without war and politics looming over.
* LoopholeAbuse: Sunbeam Sparkle employs this frequently, with others noting they have to phrase things carefully and deliberately when making terms with her. For example, when Sunbeam enters an honour duel with a pegasus that she completely outclasses and Celestia orders her not to kill him, Sunbeam instead mutilates him so thoroughly that he takes his own life some time later.



* TeethClenchedTeamwork: How Shadow and Sunbeam work together... [[CharacterDevelopment at first]].



* WouldHurtAChild: Sunbeam is {{Flanderized}} in-universe for this after it's made public that she used a colt as an unwitting suicide bomber against his warlock father, earning her the unofficial title "Foal-slayer" amongst the nobility.



* NotSoSafeHarbor: Rogueport, run by greedy merchant-princes and with guards so corrupt they are expected to supplement their income with bribes, is a notorious haven for BlackMarket deals in every sort of banned good, a hotbed of espionage and counterespionage, and a nest of organized piracy.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler: Just Cause was instructed by Nightmare Moon to kill off the Mane 6 to neutralize the threat of the Elements Of Harmony against her. So far, Aedile Pie is the only fatality, attempted or successful. Clearly, this time around, Nightmare Moon has done her homework.]]
