* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: Fluttershy might be a very shy pony with LovableCoward tendencies, but she's used to dealing with wild animals on a regular basis and taming them with kindness alone. Plus she's very resistant to mind games. Who better than her to reform an [[MagnificentBastard expert manipulator and trickster]] who's also [[MixAndMatchCreatures a creature composed of several different animals]]?

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues:
** Discord's used mind games as his primary method of defeating the Mane Six last time. This time the Mane Six don't believe a word he says, with even ''Fluttershy'' not falling for his games.
** Discord is reformed...but Fluttershy is the only one to actually forgive and trust him while everyone else is distrustful of him. Discord did a ''lot'' of horrible things and unlike Luna doesn't show any regret for anything but upsetting Fluttershy, so they have no reason ''to'' forgive or trust him yet.

Added DiffLines:

* AnAesop: Bad people can [[HeelFaceTurn change their ways,]] but don't expect them to completely abandon their entire personalities. For rehabilitation to work, you have to show that you're willing to meet them halfway and accept that they'll be, at best, ReformedButNotTamed.

Added DiffLines:

* BefriendingTheEnemy: Princess Celestia and the Mane Six deliberately free Discord, [[GodOfEvil the master of chaos]] and one of their [[BigBad most dangerous foes]] from the previous season, in order to befriend him.

Added DiffLines:

* GenreBlindness: The Ponies underestimate ThePowerOfFriendship in a show where its practically in the title. Rainbow Dash insists the Mane Six come up with a backup plan in case the whole "befriending" business with Discord to have him do HeelFaceTurn doesn't work, and the other ponies agree with her, with Twilight settling for good old fashioned brainwashing. The blindness is extra bad because not too long before the Mane Six helped another former villain turn away from evil thanks to the Power of Friendship.

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: While the mane ponies are discussing Fluttershy's invitation to dinner with Discord, the discorded beavers can be seen floating by on a river with logs they will use to flood Sweet Apple Acres.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Discord knows Twilight and company will most surely find an alternative way to confront him once they realize he doesn't want to be reformed, so he uses his magic (and appetite) to get rid of any written spell that might affect him.
** Likewise, the reason he has to be so sneaky in the first place is because Celestia, learning from her main mistake the last time he was free, enchants the Elements to prevent him from just taking them by force again.



* HeelFaceBrainwashing: {{Discussed|Trope}}. Twilight seriously considers doing this to Discord, as a backup plan if he can't be reformed conventionally. However, Discord is [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy a few steps ahead of her]] and destroys the instructions for how to perform the spell.
