* [[DeadManWalking Dead Mare Walking]]: When Octavia is forced to play an infamous piece that nopony has ever played to Luna's standards (with the results that their careers are wrecked), the cellist is treated this way. All her concerts are canceled and none of her friends or colleagues in Canterlot will talk to her. Certain institutions even refuse to allow her entry for fear of the Princess's wrath.

RDD explicitly identifies her as having been turned into a human, and a naked one at that (the spell did not create clothes). However, as ponies are usually naked anyway, nopony seeing Lyra, nor Lyra herself, make anything out of her nudity, and RDD keeps describing Lyra in pony terms, i.e., referring to her arms as "forelegs," her torso as a "barrel," Lyra not knowing whether she has hands or paws, etc.]]

* ProperlyParanoid: Applejack's paranoia pays off in the early chapters of ''At The Grand Galloping Gala'', when Zecora's curse destroys most of the town's crops, and only the Apple Trust's food stores can keep the town fed. Ivory Scroll even tells Applejack that she should feel free to say "I told you so".
