* ''FanFic/TheStarsWillAidTheirEscape'': [[spoiler:For all his GenreSavvy, [[BigBad Herald]] ends up being defeated by several of his own actions throughout the story. [[KickTheDog Throwing the jar containing the CMC's souls over the waterfall]] not only allows them to be retrieved, but takes away the one thing that might have stopped Pinkie Pie from banishing him to outside of reality the same way he did it to the Princesses. That action in and of itself ends up costing him, as it allows them to fight him at full strength without having to worry about hurting their subjects as they would in Equestria, allowing them to begin winning the fight. This also buys the Mane Six enough time to kill the [[{{Mooks}} Dark Young]] and stop [[SealedEvilInACan Shub-Niggurath's summoning]].]]
