** In general, this happening is ''extremely'' frequent. There's a ''reason'' that one of the big themes of the series is 'there are no background ponies'.

Added DiffLines:

* ArbitrarySkepticism:
** Some Jerkass asylum orderlies refuse to believe Fluttershy can really talk to animals and think she's just making up what the animals are saying. This is in spite of the fact they believe in the powers she wielded as Princess Gaia/Nightmare Whisper.
** [[spoiler:Flutternice]] refuses to believe that a Reaper's weapon is sentient and communicates with its wielder, in spite of everything else she has experienced.
** Some of the characters find the stories of Megan Williams and her friends hard to believe.


Added DiffLines:

* BoltOfDivineRetribution: Princess Luna starts talking about the heroism of Megan Williams and her friends. When Trixie doesn't believe in that story, Luna gets annoyed and Trixie suddenly gets zapped by lightning on a clear day.

* AndIMustScream: Discord shares the same fate as his canon self. [[spoiler:Ironically, being TakenForGranite is ''normally'' a subversion in this universe. It is actually surprisingly pleasant for the average person, you just peacefully contemplate your place in the universe, mentally compose poetry, and generally remain in a peaceful, zen-like state and aren't even traumatized when you're freed. It's only this for Discord because he can't ''stand'' being sane and peaceful, so it's torture for him.]]

The Rainbow Of Darkness regenerated and brought him back to life with it, after which he challenged Luna for the title of ruler of the night.

* BargainWithHeaven: Joining the Royal Guard seems to work this way. It involves being infused with a bit of the Princesses power (each do half) with a bit of transformation involved, more for Luna's than Celestia. However, the contract is ''very'' thorough about this (at least in Luna's case, it's in big bold letters across two pages in size 40 font, complete with before and after pictures) and applicants know exactly what they're getting into.

[[spoiler:Fluttershy might have been sent here had her actions as Princess Gaia resulted in the deaths of all of Equestria's foals.]] Humorously, Celestia also apparently puts inmates to work tending to the native flora and fauna (yes, the sun has flora and fauna in this universe) in hopes of reforming them.
* AlienGeometries: Discord's castle in the Dark World. It constantly shifts both exterior and interior, seemingly as much of its own will as of Discord's, and many of its rooms seem dedicated to psychologically breaking ponies for Discord's amusement. Oh, and for bonus points, one room is a void that leads to [[EldritchAbomination Ponythulu's]] domain.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Subverted. Despite Discord being purely evil, being born of Disharmony does not automatically make one evil. This is a major plot point in Fluttercruel's story arc. [[spoiler:It's also revealed that Discord was simply one of a group of Draconequi, but seems to be the only ''truly'' evil one of the bunch. We see some of the others in "Generational Transitions" and some of them are downright ''nice''. Even Destruction, a MadBomber who loves blowing things up, has some degree of empathy for the ponies. Discord was having the time of his life doing whatever he pleased in a universe that was going to be destroyed anyway.]]
