Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Twilight brings along Fluttershy because her ability to speak to animals will be key in talking to the full-grown dragon, and in this circumstance is what works. In "Dragon Quest" and "Gauntlet of Fire", this doesn't prove a hindrance for Twilight or Rarity, nor later when Ember starts visiting Ponyville.


Added DiffLines:

* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: See TheLoad; Twilight knows Fluttershy will be a nuisance climbing up the mountain, but acknowledges she's the one to go to regarding animal communication.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn:
** While Rainbow Dash's irritance with Fluttershy's meekness has popped up many times afterward, her disinterest and almost naked contempt in keeping her around seems somewhat out of place compared to later episodes; the most jarring example is when Dash says "Not your fault" to Rarity while fixing the ''dirtiest'' look at Fluttershy, as if she's really saying "We '''know''' who's to blame here." Nowadays, Rainbow is often shown enthusiastically trying to bulk Fluttershy up, and at least is respectful to her and knows when to back off if Fluttershy genuinely is too scared to do something.
** Fluttershy also is less of a coward in future episodes, including never being afraid of her own shadow again.

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: The ending. Rainbow Dash gets scared by Pinkie, causing Fluttershy to note how brave she is, only to get scared when a leaf falls on her back.

Added DiffLines:

** A bigger version is done when the dragon starts coming out of the cave itself.
* OverlyLongGag: The camera backs out 8 times during Fluttershy's quote at the top of the page for emphasis, starting with just Fluttershy and Twilight and backing out to view the whole mountain by the time it's done.

* StaggeredZoom: As Fluttershy explains her fear of adult dragons, the camera pulls back from the cave in steps, eventually showing the whole mountain, each step punctuating her list of objections.

** Later while Fluttershy is punishing the dragon, her PunctuatedForEmphasis line above is accompanied by four jumping zoom-ins on her eyes.

* ProperlyParanoid: Exaggerated moments notwithstanding, you really can't blame Fluttershy for (initially) being afraid of the {{Kaiju}}[=-=]sized Dragon. Sure, he's NotEvilJustMisunderstood, but he's still very dangerous if you press his BerserkButton.

Added DiffLines:

* LazyDragon: The dragon spends most of the episode asleep on its hoard, and it's implied it will keep sleeping for a century if left undisturbed. The biggest reaction it has to the ponies before Rainbow Dash kicks it in the snout is at most to stretch and go right back to sleep. It only poses a passive threat due to the clouds of smoke it breaths out while snoring.
