* Ponies in the [[Fanfic/TriptychContinuum Triptych Continuum]] possess ''feel'', which allows them to pick up on active magic use and lingering traces for the workings of their own race, along with helping them learn how new tricks can be done.

[[spoiler: ''[[TheNameless She]]'' does as well, but only one at a time.]]
