* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: How a dragon becomes Overlord. They have to fight any and all contenders for the title. If they win, and live, they get to be Overlord and all other dragons have to obey them. Of course, since they got there via asskicking, if they start losing a fight, they're kicked to the curb.

* SadisticChoice: Night Light poses one to Trixie in ''At the Grand Galloping Gala'': [[spoiler:give up her dreams of ascending any higher in the Night Court, ensuring Ponyville doesn't suffer any further red tape retribution... or keep trying to make her way up the ranks and keep getting swatted down for her troubles, putting Ponyville at risk at the same time]].

** Raindrops' song in Chapter 1 of ''Tales of Ponyville'' is a parody of the "Gypsy Bard" song from ''{{Friendship is Witchcraft}}''.

* GainaxEnding: In the Heat of the Moment climaxes with [[spoiler:Trixie and Raindrops deciding to give a relationship a try]]. The epilogue takes place several months later with the two of them on a date that is soon interrupted by a [[spoiler:time-travelling Dinky and Pipsqueak. Subsequent events play out exactly like the ending of the first ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' movie, albeit with a CoolBoat instead of a DeLorean]].

Added DiffLines:

* BelievingTheirOwnLies: The ponies of Zaldia are total paranoid nutcases who believe their extensive armory of anti-Alicorn weapons are what caused Luna to stop expanding Equestria's borders, and that they are the ''only thing'' keeping her and Cadenza from marching in and taking over their horrible country. When Trixie points out to two of them this isn't real accurate, they say they "see the truth".

* GoLookAtTheDistraction: In ''Up and Automaton'', Raindrops really wants to beat someone up, but is told by Cheerilee not to in front of Snails. She distracts him by saying there's a snow beetle somewhere. He turns to look where she pointed, and thus does not see her sock the guy. It is then played with in that there ''is'' a snow beetle and that Raindrops made certain she wasn't lying to her brother.

* 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.]]

* ExiledFromContinuity: The original writer is so torn by the backlash generated by stories about the Night Court that he no longer wants to see stories about them.



* FandomNod: ''Boast Busted'' twice hints that Lyra's hooves were turned into...something, which is always cut off before the speaker can finish. Those who are familiar with Lyra's fanon characterization can probably guess what that something is. More hints to these events are dropped during ''Family Matters''. The events mentioned are ''finally'' shown in "Helping... Hands?", where Lyra is turned into a human directly.
** In ''Carrot Top of the Line'' Rarity comments multiple time about liking Carrot Top's mane. There is also a MythologyGag in there.
** When Shining Armor meets Luna, he notices an [[Fanfic/{{Progress}} abacus.]]
** Silver Script's (Ditzy's boss) baseball bat has words "Love and Tolerance" written into it.



* WordOfGod: The author tends to include short commentaries after each chapter, which often contain various additional bits of information that explain or expand things brought up in the chapter. For example, after Chapter 9 of ''Longest Night, Longest Day'', he included a hierarchy of noble ranks in Equestria and rough guide to early-modern English verbs.

* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler:Just before Zecora saves her flank, we see Corona devoid of her upper ground...and that she is honestly and truly ''insane'', utterly incapable of trusting other ponies except as subordinates, and honestly thinking she's the last line of defense against everything. It's kind of sad to see how Celestia could have been if she was a bit more paranoid.]]

* AnachronicOrder: The first story in TheVerse, ''Boast Busted'' takes place after the events of multiple later fics, with some hints being dropped as to the resolution of ''Longest Night Longest Day''.
** Later fics by other authors have been released in a fairly loose order, as well. Further, RDD's latest fic is a distant prequel. The only limit on new fics RDD has placed is that none can take place further forward than about one week before the middle of the summer of the same year that Corona escaped from the sun... which has since been abandoned, allowing for "Season Two" stories to be written.

When Trixie publicly humiliates Twiilght in ''Boast Busted'', Raindrops keeps that promise by laying her out with one punch.

* CoolHelmet: The Royal Guard of Zaldia have helmets designed to look like bears.



* CrazyPrepared: Pinkie Pie is educated in all ways to make cupcakes, including recipes and methods that were used centuries ago, in case a time traveller from the past shows up and needs a historically accurate party. Granted, this was in the admittedly non-canon story "Dinky And The Blanks", but it does seem in-character enough for Pinkie.
** To keep the Discordians from unleashing Daddy Discord, Luna had his statue sealed in concrete, surrounded the concrete block with eight different warding spells and buried it. Celestia of the Mane Six's world is astonished both by that and by the fact that there are Discord cultists in the Lunaverse.
*** Though she also mentions that it wouldn't really matter ''what'' she did, if Discord wanted out of his prison, it wouldn't matter if he was behind Luna's defenses or out in the garden where Celestia keeps him- he's getting out.

* DeadlyDecadentCourt: The Night Court is said to be one, and the few members that we have seen (including Greengrass) bear this out.
** ''At the Grand Galloping Gala'' has Trixie make the unpleasant realization that the Night Court is ''completely'' corrupt. Even the most decent members, like Night Light, willingly and often use blackmail, bribery, and threats in order to get what they want. Greengrass and his allies are just the most aggressive about it.
