* ArtEvolution: Luna now has a mane and tail that flow like Celestia's, instead of the fixed bangs she's seen with in the ending of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E2ElementsOfHarmony "Elements of Harmony"]]. Her fur is also a darker shade of purple. Overall, she looks a lot closer to her Nightmare Moon persona, but without the evil. This ''could'', however, just represent her becoming older, or regaining her power. LaurenFaust [[http://comments.deviantart.com/4/1603670/2245236163 stated that it represents Luna regaining her power]], [[ShrugOfGod but admitted]], "I just made that up. [[GodDoesNotOwnThisWorld I don't know how the showrunners would explain it]], [[DeathOfTheAuthor but that's how I would.]]" The mane change goes mostly unexplained, but Luna does mention that the Elements of Harmony took away her "dark powers". The idea of a gradual maturation or shift in power is supported when you notice that Luna's forelock is still "solid" rather than flowing, implying the change hasn't been completed yet. And as with the other unicorns/alicorns since "Lesson Zero", Luna's magic is [[ColourCodedWizardry given a darker blue aura instead of generic white]].

* ComfortFood: After her initial attempt to greet the ponies goes south, Luna eats up all the candy left at her statue that the ponies left as offerings. It was a [[BigEater ''lot'']] of candy.

Added DiffLines:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure:
** Double-subverted when Luna tries, to her credit, to be reasonable. The problem is that she's a FishOutOfTemporalWater with her outfit. It's hard to blame her for snapping cancelling Nightmare Night when Pinkie Pie messes up her efforts to clean up her image. Eventually she mellows when Pip thanks her for coming back to scare them.
** Subverted with the Mayor when Princess Luna first appears; she's just as scared as the other ponies and doesn't seem to realize that her StunnedSilence is offending Luna.
