* CultureClash: All over in "Contest of Champions". Ditzy nearly gets attacked by an elk for understandably confronting him on seeing the guy rifling through someone's mailbox and assuming he was a thief, prompting him to chase after her demanding a duel to the death for offending his honor. Dao Ming of the Shouma is baffled by the idea of a farmer talking back to a social superior, or Trixie doing something as scandalous as asking Luna - her mentor - ''personal questions'', and finds [=BonBon=]'s confused reaction to her sister saying she'd make a fine servant back home is strange (Tomoko had meant it as a compliment, and to the Shouma it would've been the highest praise imaginable). Not to mention at one point trying to protect the empress when Celestia shows up. To an Equestrian, or the reader, wanting to protect her mother from potential harm would be an entirely normal reaction. Instead, it's a massive insult that causes Dao massive shame.



* FauxAffablyEvil: Parlay seems like a nice guy at first, until [[spoiler: Ditzy tells him no and he rages out.]]

** You'd think this would apply to Corona, but WordOfGod is that between the two alicorn sisters, Luna is ''far'' more capable of cruelty. The worst Corona will ever (intentionally) do to you is kill you, and quickly. Luna's the sort who might come up with creative punishments designed to make you ''suffer''.

* DistantEpilogue: "An Early Reunion"'s last chapter takes place 980 years after the main story, shortly after "Longest Night, Longest Day".



* PrecisionFStrike: Cadence gets off several Italian cusses through "An Early Reunion".



* SecretTestOfCharacter: Luna and Cadence's duel in "An Early Reunion" is mainly so Luna can see what Cadence is like when she's threatened.



* ThatCameOutWrong: Trixie says this word for word in ''Tales of Ponyville'' when she realizes how "And you ''interrupted it before the good part!''" sounds ''in'' context.

** According to ''Rhyme of the Ancient Pegasus'', on their second Hearthswarming Night together, the Element Bearers decided to actually have their Elements to hand in case someone or something decided to [[AnAsskickingChristmas start something]]. Mercifully, that time it proved unnecessary.

* DoomedHometown: The reason that Trixie and the Luna Six have to appear at the Gala is to get Luna to sign off on sending them funds to rebuild Ponyville after "Foalish Misadventures". The reason that this is a problem is that [[ObstructiveBureaucrat the guy in charge of disaster relief doesn't believe their story, and thinks the Ponyville residents are just trying to commit insurance fraud.]] Matters are not helped by the fact that this guy is Twilight's father.



* HiddenAgendaVillain: The bad guys of "Nightmares Yet to Come" have an annoying habit of not explaining their plans to each other, in full.

* HiddenAgendaVillain: The bad guys of "Nightmares Yet to Come" have an annoying habit of not explaining their plans to each other, in full. So far, the general details involve making... three of ''something'', which they need to do quickly, and getting Corona on their side.



** Sunset Shimmer, in ''Nightmares Yet to Come'', uses a version which is nowhere near as powerful as Trixie's. Fortunately, she's using it in the dark, which helps.



** At the end of one story ([[spoiler:Ill Communication]]) there's even a scene at the end where Windowpane comes to the Residence just to be informed that no, the window was not broken this time. Both he and Pokey seem disappointed.

* WithCatlikeTread: One chapter of ''Nightmares Yet to Come'' begins with Sunset Shimmer singing the trope namer, only to be interrupted by Lightning Dust pointing out that this is ''not'' a good idea when you're trying to be ''stealthy''. Sunset retorts that it's helping her focus.



* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Corona, having been in exile for a thousand years, makes heavy use of early-modern English words and phrases, like "thy" and "hast" (not unlike Luna in Luna Eclipsed). Partially averted in that the author is actively trying to make it as accurate as possible rather than just adding "-th" to the end of random words, although he admits to not being very good at it.

* GhostCity: Tambelon, thanks to a mix of Grogar killing every living thing but himself and Bray, and Luna taking steps to discourage anyone from settling there (along with the typical reputation an entirely dead city gets anyway).



** One chapter from "Nightmares Yet to Come" plays out like a chapter from other Lunaverse story "I'll See You Soon": A unicorn flatters their way into seeing Corona, talks to them, is told they're a prisoner, and then manages to escape, right down to the method used. The difference being in that the pony in the former isn't just asking Corona for marriage advice.
