After some time, however, it is revealed that [[spoiler: Quivering Star, or rather Antarès Stellmare, as it is his real name; was looking for ways to bring his orb back to its full power. He manages to do just that by absorbing the power of the Elements of Harmony during a fight between the Mane6 and Arcadès. He then sets out to unseal his Clan's ancient knowledge, and more importantly, the flying city of Stellmare; in order to TakeOverTheWorld with raw magical power and knowledge, like the EvilOverlord he claims to be]]. This new threat pushes the Mane 6 ([[spoiler: Minus Twilight Sparkle, who gets abducted and brainwashed by Antarès after his reveal as TheMole]].) as well as Sol, Derpy and a few other Ponyville residents willing to aid them, and eventually [[spoiler: [[EnemyMine Arcadès himself]]]]; to set out and try to stop it before Equestria is forever changed by this unexpected turn of events.



* TheVillainMakesThePlot: Arcadès doesn't take long before [[OutsideContextVillain coming out of nowhere and bringing some new, unexpected conflict along with him]]. Becomes even worse after TheReveal, where [[spoiler: Quivering reveals himself as the "real" villain who wants to take revenge for what happened to his clan 1000 years ago, and create a unicorn supremacy]]. Finally, [[spoiler: things quickly approach their climax after we learn that [[ManBehindTheMan Nebula Shade]] might have been responsible for all of this just from inside the Star of Sylas, and is also trying to take revenge, along with reviving her race]].

** To Franchise/StarWars, VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII, KingdomHearts, PowerRangers, VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}, and [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soulcalibur]] when during a fight in an armory, [[spoiler: Antarès]] uses weapons that are described as looking like Darth Maul's double-ended lightsaber, a Gunblade, a Keyblade, the Green Ranger's Dagger-flute, the Monado and Soul Edge. Sol also picks up a weapon that might be a Soul Calibur look-a-like during the same fight.

* GenreSavvy: The Princesses and Arcadès, when [[spoiler: Spike apparently becomes normal again after having been under Antarès' control for a few chapters]]. They don't give much credit to that, what with the numerous cases of FaceHeelTurn and BrainwashedAndCrazy they've seen, and decide to [[spoiler: restrain Spike, just to be sure]].
** [[spoiler: Nebula also has a bit of that, since [[ShutUpKirk she keeps interrupting her opponents]] [[TalkToTheFist when they try to reason with her during a fight]], and attacks them from all sides, forcing them to spend more time defending each other instead of attacking her]].

* BishounenLine: [[spoiler: Crystal!Spike]]'s second form. The first one was [[MightyGlacier huge and strong, but pretty slow]], and was easily neutralised by Sol, Derpy and [[spoiler: Sylas]], to the point that they were able to hold him down while exposition was going on. However, after [[spoiler: Arcadès tries to turn him back into a normal dragon, and partially succeeds]], he gets a slender body, only twice the size of a pony, and fights with a much [[FragileSpeedster faster]] and [[ConfusionFu unpredictable]] style.

* WreathedInFlames: A tactic used by Arcadès a few times, but never really to its full potential. [[spoiler: He finally shows how much this ability of his counts at the end of his fight against Crystal!Spike, where he burns an entire building and lets himself fall into the inferno, in order to jump back out of it and attack his opponent like a giant, living fireball]].

* AmplifierArtifact: [[spoiler: The Stellmare Boosters, magic necklaces worn by Sylas' friends to grant them magic or their natural powers more efficient. Even Guardian Blade, who is an Earth Pony, can use potent spells with it]].



* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler: Shining Armor gets his horn broken by Spica!Twilight when she attacks him and Cadence.]]
* CastingAShadow: [[spoiler: Spica!Twilight]] seems to be able to make her surroundings darker, but it may also be caused by the mass amounts of shadowy energy that was sent along with her, which would mean it actually is [[spoiler: Antarès]]' doing.

[[spoiler: Sirius]] uses shadow magic as well, by virtue of being [[spoiler: both a Dethicorn and a {{Necromancer}}]].



* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler: Sylas and a few other friends of his were the only ones to try and stop the battle between the rest of the corrupted Stellmare Clan and the rebelling Crystal Dragons. Among them was also Sirius Shade, Nebula's brother and the only Dethicorn not to take part in this senseless war]].



* HardLight: [[spoiler: Even tough Nebula died long ago and put her soul inside the Star of Sylas, her AstralProjection is still powerful enough to physically attack the Mane6, while Sylas' is too weak to be tangible.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ALoadOfBull: [[spoiler: Taurus, one of the security systems, which appears as a gigantic black bull]].


Added DiffLines:
