** [[spoiler: It also turns out that she ''can't'' be fired because of her political connections- she's really only there to look after Fluttershy, and her high position is so that she has the power to get others to cover for her in case she needs to care for the shy pegasus.]]



* HeroOfAnotherStory: In "Family Matters," we see Trixie unable to help because she's busy with something connected to Lyra. It turns out that the story runs concurrently with "Helping... Hands?" Where we get to see the other side.



* JerkassHasAPoint: Raindrops, when she finds the additional Weather Ponies hired to help with Ponyville's weather during the celebration, is ''furious'' at Trixie for doing so, as her hiring outside help questions the competence of Ponyville Weather Ponies, not to mention that the leader of these extras was kicked out of flight school (something ''very'' hard to do and you have to be ''really'' bad to have that happen). Trixie rightfully points out that Everfree Weather is unpredictable and that Raindrops' earlier query as to the nature of the Everfree Storm was rather ambiguous. She also says that whatever the leader of the Extras did in the past, he's here, now, and came highly recommended, so even if he doesn't have the cleanest past, he can still do a job- a job that is vitally needed for a massive celebration. True, Trixie had her own motives for doing this, but she makes rather excellent points that aren't wrong.



** It's a talent that proves useful when she manages to [[spoiler: steal the Elements of Harmony out from under Canon Celestia, Twilight, and Applejack's noses, proving that she might not have the raw magical power of Twilight Sparkle, but what power she does have she knows how to use ''very, very well.'']]



** Worse, the actions of the Trust end up putting pressure on the smaller Ponyville farms to band together into their ''own'' version of the Trust, call the Farmer's Union, which is capable of at least putting up a fight with Sweet Apple Acres without getting curbstomped.



*** Slightly justified on Trixie's part because a) Raindrops ''was'' acting remarkably out of character, and more importantly b) she had recently had experiences with a shapeshifter herself.

*** Slightly justified on Trixie's part because a) Raindrops ''was'' acting remarkably out of character, and more importantly b) she had recently had experiences with a shapeshifter herself.herself, not to mention she's had to tangle with other such beings who could disguise themselves as an Element for their own ends (the Night Court, Corona, etc).


Added DiffLines:

** A much more minor example- Pipsqueak is ''really'' good at playing on the Jungle Gym, as he spent a year with his father on a sailing ship and learned how to maneuver on rigging and ropes.


Added DiffLines:

** Shockingly, a detonating crate of fireworks set off by the children Trixie is mentoring does ''not'' break the window. Seconds after they leave, though, a baseball sails through it.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgotICouldFly: Averted, but mentioned by Ditzy when she first meets Trixie and Lyra. She claims that the reason that she was climbing a set of shelves to get muffins is because of this. In reality, Ditzy is not good at flying in enclosed spaces due to visual issues, but is embarrassed by this and was lying.

Added DiffLines:

* EvenGuysWantHim: According to the non-canon story "I'll See you Soon," Bon Bon accuses Lyra of staring at Big Macintosh. Lyra remarks that ''everyone'' stares at Big Macintosh. Bon Bon has no choice but to admit while sighing dreamily- and keep in mind that this version of Bon Bon is [[SingleTargetSexuality Lyrasexual.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DeadpanSnarker: Everyone gets in on it, but the following example is especially deadpan.
-->'''Cheerilee''': What has [Raindrops] in such a good mood?
-->'''Bon Bon''': Well, let's think. Her name is ''Raindrops,'' her cutie mark is ''rain'', and it's ''raining.'' So clearly it's because Trixie finally learned about the Birds and the Bees.

** Pokey Pierce, at one point, claims that "he won't stop until he's [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Pierced the Heavens]]" with his horn.

* ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/63307/The-Jackelope-Valley-Festival The Jackelope Valley Festival]]'': A thousand years ago, Corona cursed Jackelope Valley, and it has never rained there since. Now the barren desert is the site of an annual music festival that celebrates up-and-coming artists -- and Lyra's been invited to play! When Raindrops learns that her favorite band, the Daughters of Discord, are playing, she comes along as well... but soon after arriving, the two stumble upon the last living Jackelope. What should have been a week of fun and music turns into a race against time and the pitiless sun as the two ponies, aided by DJ Pon3 and the guitarist pegasus Thunder Axe, struggle to save the Jackelope's life. It is complete.

->"But as time went on, [[ForWantOfANail the elder sister grew greedy]]. Though the ponies relished and played in the day and honored her above her younger sister, she wanted to become queen of both night and day. One fateful day, she turned upon her younger sister. The younger sister tried to reason with her, but the avarice in the elder one's heart had transformed her into a wicked mare of fire and hate: Corona. She vowed that she would reign forever over day, night, and everything in between.

* BizarreTasteInFood: Trixie, in spades. For example, she's been known to impale a whole apple on a carrot and drench both in caramel, and she favors sauerkraut on her pancakes.
** One of her favorite combinations, chili powder in hot chocolate, is mildly popular in real life. Hershey's sells pre-mixed cocoa powder with this flavor, and there are candy bars consisting of these two ingredients.
** Scootaloo uses ''[[BlazingHellfireInfernoSauce liquid rainbow]]'', which was too spicy for even the canon Pinkie, as ''dip''.
