* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Twilight can levitate an Ursa Minor for miles and effortlessly stop Rainbow Dash in midflight, but she does nothing to stop Rarity and the Wonderbolts from falling to their deaths (e.g. gradually slowing them down and then hoisting them back up). Celestia presumably has at least the ability to do that much and likely far more, but she too never intervenes.

Of course the Wonderbolts did take action first, and by the time they were taken out Rarity was too far away for Twilight or Celestia to target.

** Fluttershy's voice doesn't really lend itself to loud cheering, so Creator/AndreaLibman pretty much just uses Pinkie Pie's voice for Fluttershy's loud, excited cheer.

* PolkaDotPaint: Pinkie Pie dips a hoof in the liquid rainbow and it retains seven distinct stripes of color, despite dripping off her hoof. She then ''licks'' it...and [[FireBreathingDiner starts breathing multicolored fire!]]

The day of the competition arrives, and after an encounter with a few old bullies from flight school (and Fluttershy [[GoYeHeroesGoAndDie botching the die roll on "Make Motivational Speech"]]), Rainbow Dash finds herself on the verge of a {{nervous breakdown}} over whether or not she'll win.

!!Tropes present in this episode (YMMV tropes can be found [[YMMV/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E16SonicRainboom here]]):
* AbsenteeActor: Spike.
* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Rarity becomes entranced with the temporary wings Twilight gives her and soon forgets why she wanted them in the first place; going so far as to enter the competition herself just to show them off. At least she realizes in the end that she lost her head and regrets it.
** It starts early. When the other non-pegasi are amazed at Cloudsdale in general, Rarity is admiring her wings.

* TheCameo: [[RecurringExtra Recurring Unicorn]] Lyra Heartstrings makes a notable cameo in this episode as the only non-pegasus outside of the Mane Six (and Celestia) to appear in Cloudsdale. Apparently she knows the cloud walking spell too!
