* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Fluttershy is proved this when she shows freaky knowledge of sewing and stitching - but her demands result in a dress that's just as ugly as the rest. Fans have analysed her comments and found that, while she knows sewing, she knows absolutely nothing about design.



* OohMeAccentsSlipping: When Rarity forces Fluttershy to tell her what she ''[[MotorMouth really]]'' thinks, specifically on her last seven "Tell me"s.
** Retroactively justified; Rarity's accent is shown to be an affectation later in the series.
