* CallBack: More have been showing up as the Dark World storyline comes to a close, especially in Part 20. [[spoiler: Spike's hoof wrestling skills first mentioned way back during Trixie's party are what keep him alive against Rancor. Fluttercruel's ultimate technique is the same as her mother's: The Stare.]]

** [[spoiler:During Rainbow's True Harmonizing, she laments that you can't be loyal to ''everyone'' due to conflicting loyalties and if someone else could have done better in Discord's trap, why is she Loyalty? During the CosmicRetcon after Rumors, Celestia tells her it's ''because'' she doesn't blindly follow authority and is loyal to those who ''deserve it'' that she ''made'' Loyalty her own.]]

* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: [[spoiler:Type two. Thistle Whistle rams Strife head on with all her power to save Sky Wishes...and shatters every bone in her entire body, killing her. Though she ''did'' save Sky Wishes' life and Strife even acknowledges her bravery for the act.]]

** The Nameless Filly succeeded in killing Cupid and erasing him from existence. Unfortunately for her, [[MamaBear Venus naturally wasn't happy about this and promptly descended to mortal reality and killed her easily.]] [[spoiler:An alternate universe has Cupid's uncle Turris, the God of Defense, interfere in time and the Concept Killing Spear ends up ''snapping'' on Turris' unbreakable defense. She still keeps trying, only for Turris to turn the two halves of the Concept Killing Spear against each other, the resulting explosion killing her.]]
** Applejack ends up punching Luna in the jaw upon [[spoiler:hearing the truth of how Tirek got the Rainbow of Darkness]]. Luna, fully accepting she deserved Applejack's anger, rolls with the punch to AVOID this trope.

* AllJustADream: [[spoiler:Luna wakes up, gets told by Celestia her night out with Pip has gotten her painted as a molester by the tabloids, has an arguement with Celestia at a guardian party, ''kills and revives Pip as an immortal zombie'', [[FaceHeelTurn turns evil again]], tries to murder her sister, only for Celestia to break out her ultimate weapon and fight back. Luna gets bisected by a spear and... wakes up in her chariot next to Pip. It's left unrevealed as to rather or not this was a vision of a possible future or simply a nightmare, either way, it teaches her a lesson she really needed to learn.]]

** [[spoiler:Played With. Luna used her full divine might to force the Rumors reality into the Dream World instead of Oblivion, so as to prevent the universe from having to deal with the [[EmptyShell Shadows of Existence]] of the corrupted version of the world. As a result, to everypony without a RippleEffectProofMemory, the events of the Rumors were nothing but a nightmare.]]

* DivineConflict: The Alicorn /Draconequi War. The Draconequi elders wanted to destroy Equus because the ponies [[spoiler:destroying the Windigos harmed Entropy and the entire Draconequi family, meaning they could become a threat to reality aas a whole.]] The Alicorns didn't want to allow a world to be destroyed over a 'what if'. Ultimately, the Alicorns won when [[spoiler:Cadenza]] killed Havoc's out of control Avatar. To note, Havoc ''fully'' admits the war didn't benefit anyone and actually damaged his family ''more'' than the reason he decided to do it in the first place, and is shown refusing to repeat his mistake a few times.

* [[spoiler:CosmicRetcon: The Alicorns and Draconequi were originally in charge of this according to ''very'' LooseCanon, but only if a universe was on the verge of entropy and needed a drastic overhaul if there was any hope of saving it. They retconed the G3 universe into the G4 universe because it was on the verge of dying if they didn't.]]

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:In the process of fixing the damage done by the Rumors, Applebloom performs one of these, including [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong nudging past events in a better direction.]] Havoc in an earlier chapter makes it clear doing this was to a degree a reward for her and the other Crusaders saving the universe.]]

** [[spoiler:Nightmare Eclipse ''lost count'' of how many times she's erased the timeline. When Apple Pie asks how many times she let her twin sister die, Eclipse replies she doesn't keep track of all the '[=NPCs=]'.]]
** Tirek's minion Lancaster, who tried to kill him, explains his motive was Tirek destroyed his hometown of Crystal Port and [[YouKilledMyFather killed his brother]]. Tirek's response is to state he doesn't remember that one. When Lancaster asks in shock how he can't remember, his answer?
--> '''Tirek''': Do you remember every ant you step on?

* BiggerBad: Discord. He's already been put back in his can before the Reharmonizing series begins, but the aftermath of his actions have had deep and [[MindRape lasting effects on everypony.]] [[spoiler:He eventually breaks free and becomes the BigBad proper for the finale.]]
** In addition [[spoiler:it's revealed Discord was responsible for King Sombra, having gotten one of his cousins to orchestrate his creation due to his own hatred of the Crystal Empire. However, by the time Sombra's creation was complete, Discord had long been defeated and Sombra was primarily a self contained threat.]]
** [[spoiler:The Nameless Passenger/[[FutureMeScaresMe Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox]] turns out to be this for the Dark World, as while Discord is the primary villain, it's only because of her actions he's allowed (and to some degree ''forced'') to remain the BigBad, as otherwise he'd have been defeated or [[HeelFaceTurn turned good]] [[GroundhogDayLoop cycles ago]].]]
** Father Deer presumably for the Shining Armor Arc, given he's Makarov's boss. [[spoiler:Subverted in that Makarov is more than he appears and the Father Deer is simply a figurehead.]]
** In a way [[spoiler:Makarov is the BiggerBad of the Wedding, his RewritingReality to kill off the Changelings being what allowed Chrysalis to become a much bigger threat, long after his demise.]]
** [[spoiler:Lilith, the True Witch Queen and the First Witch, as she's Hydia's ancient ancestor and, as her name suggests, what seems to be the first witch to ever exist, thus making her this for every evil witch or wizard in G1, but never actually faced the heroes until the Witches set her loose at the end of their war with Paradise Estate. She's also indirectly responsible for Tirek's second coming and any trouble the Alicorn Amulet causes, as it was created to defeat her, and was corrupted in the process.]]



** Shining Armor Part 11 is a short, uncomplicated story about the trip to, and the group enjoying their first day in, the zebra nation Zamura. This comes right after all the drama Shining went through in Columbia, and is posted right after the Dark World Mane Cast confront [[spoiler: [[BiggerBad Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox]]]].

** [[spoiler:Dark World!Discord ended up creating [[BiggerBad Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox]]. She was originally Twilight Sparkle until he turned her into Twilight Tragedy and put her through a living hell for a thousand years. When she finally broke free, she [[StartOfDarkness snapped]] and decided to ''invoke'' [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Nightmarification]] to become Nightmare Purgatory and brutally kill him in revenge. By that point, she's [[HeWhoFightsMonsters been so consumed by her thirst for vengeance]] that she turns her plan to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong into a GroundhogDayLoop IronicHell for Discord, becoming the OmnicidalManiac she is now.]]
