* AdultsAreUseless: The adult dragons don't bother monitoring the teen dragons' antics. [[ShownTheirWork Then again, very few real world reptiles are involved in their children's lives,]] and how many things could ''hurt'' a dragon anyway, even a teen one? Apparently, phoenixes, whose flames can burn them despite their lava cannonball contest.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After their attempt to stand up to the teen dragons goes nowhere, Spike, Twilight, Rainbow Dash and Rarity take off. They run for a bit before Twilight safely teleports the four of them out of harm's way.
** Also Fluttershy. She runs away when the others try to bring her to the dragon migration and is not seen again.

** The episode can be seen as Spike trying to act more like a boy, because the episode starts with him wearing a pink apron and having teas and crumpets. The word "pony" is even thrown around by the teen dragons in the same way a boy might use "girly". He's a boy but he hangs out with and is raised by females. He doesn't identify as overly masculine so he hangs out with more guys to try to identify better with them after being teased that he isn't "manly" enough, but in the end is comfortable identifying as whatever he likes, not what he biologically is. Rephrase it as such: A dragon who likes to hang out with ponies, hardly identifying as a dragon despite being biologically a dragon due to attention being drawn to the fact that he doesn't fit the stereotypes of a dragon, thinking he isn't enough of a dragon and goes off to hang out with dragons to be like dragons but in the end deciding he isn't really a "dragon" in the common sense.

** The basic plot is a shout out to G1 My Little Pony, where Spike goes on a quest to discover what its like to be a real dragon, and hangs out with a group of bullies who want him to pass an initiation. Sound familiar?

* SeriesContinuityError: The first of Spike's photos is young Twilight with Spike as a baby after he hatched during her entrance exam. Twilight appears to be her present age, despite her being a filly when Spike hatched. Also, the background is that of the library, when that was ''long'' before she moved to Ponyville.
