* DownerEnding: Discord wins this round, and has successfully brainwashed all but one of the mane cast. The final shot of the episode is Twilight Sparkle watching in shock and despair as he lets loose a storm of chaos on Equestria.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Discord points out one rule of the maze is "no wings, no magic". Ironically, he brainwashes Rainbow into getting her wings back so she can leave the game and her friends, causing them to lose.

* VirtueIsWeakness: Discord manages to emotionally break the mane six (right before hypnotizing all but Twilight) by explaining how the virtues represented by the elements of harmony are weaknesses. Specifically, honesty causes others to know things you don't want them to know, laughter hurts the feelings of the one being laughed at, kindness opens yourself up to being abused by others, generosity prevents you from getting the things that you want, loyalty means nothing when you can't be in two places at once and have to choose between two loyalties, and in general harmony is pointless as its own elements lead it to collapse on itself.
