* BadPowersBadPeople: Magic that physically affects the world, as opposed to the inherent Sight of the reindeer, is seen as unnatural and creepy in Tarandroland. Therefore, sorcerers, be they reindeer who have learned magic or naturally skilled unicorns, are seen as sinister. The more powerful the sorcerer, the more evil they are assumed to be as a requirement for reaching that level of power and skill. The reindeer are practical enough to see this magic as sometimes useful and don't BurnTheWitch, but sorcerers are generally not trusted.



* MagicIsEvil: The inherent magic of deer is passive divination, telling them things about the world. Magic that physically acts upon the world seems creepy and unnatural to them. Hence, all "sorcerers", which includes practically all unicorns, are seen as sinister. Also the more powerful the magic of this sort, the more evil the sorcerer must be. Since Twilight is known as the most powerful unicorn sorceress of the age, she has a reputation among them as being Celestia's evil henchmare.

* EarNotch: Very tradtional and very hard reindeer notch their ears for both ceremonial and cosmetic reasons. Some comparison could be made to Maori tattoos. The practice is stated to have been more common in the past, but fallen out of fashion.



* EquivalentExchange: It is a central pillar of the reindeer world view that there is a downside to everything. They don't trust magic because they think there has to be a [[PowerataPrice price]] being paid by someone, even if it isn't the caster. They are wary of Equestria partly because it is such a nice place that whatever the downside is, it must be [[FalseUtopia horrible]].

* SadlyMythtaken: Within the story. The Equestrian comic book hero ''Sampo the Warrior-Prince'' is based on the mythical Tarandroland hero Sampo. Based ''very loosely'' it seems. (The comic spoofed is rather obviously TheMightyThor.)

* CultureClash: Reindeer have a very negative view of magic and have problems with unicorn-heavy Equestria. Equestrians get nervous with both casual violence and the use of animal products, both common in Tarandroland.

* CriticalResearchFailure: In universe, the reindeer have gotten a ''lot'' of facts about the Mane Six wrong. See the AlternateCharacterInterpretation example for specifics.
