Fortunately, inspiration strikes when Pinkie suggests that Twilight give an unfun test to root out the clones; after all, only the real Pinkie would be willing to do the most boring task if it means staying with her friends. Taking this to heart, Twilight and co. herd the many, many Pinkie Pies to town hall for the test: watching paint dry! Sure enough, the Pinkie clones get distracted one by one and are zapped back into the Mirror Pond until only one remains: the original Pinkie Pie, who has definitely learned her lesson; don't try too hard to be there for all her friends and true friends will be willing to accept she can't be everywhere at once. After a long day of excitement--and blocking up the entrance to the Mirror Pond--the only thing Pinkie wants to do now is take a nap.

** Twilight sends the clones back into the mirror pool by [[VideoGame/RaymanOrigins bubblizing]] them.

** Pinkie and her clones, all over the place. Unusually, somepony ''notices'', when Pinkie pauses in midair and lowers herself gently into a lake from a jump. (notably, this would not be feat at all for almost two thirds of the local population, including the wing-equipped pegasi and the levitation-capable unicorns. Pinkie, however, is of the one pony subset that is NOT supposed to be able to fly.)

** Somewhat insultingly, the rest of Mane Six forgot that she had them until they were literally reminded by Pinkie Pie.



%% InformedFlaw: NotAnExample. WordOfGod is that the duplicates were mindless and only focused on having fun, which isn't really supported by the episode. Most importantly, they only developed an obsession with fun after Pinkie told them to go have fun, and were willing to calm down and behave when Twilight told them to do something that wouldn't be fun, rather than just trying to leave.
* ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime: Pinkie cloning herself.
* LackOfEmpathy: This is what makes Pinkie's clones different from the original...sort of; they have the capacity for empathy, but without Pinkie's memories they don't have anyone to be empathetic towards.

to:

* ImposterForgotOneDetail: It's more like [[InvertedTrope Imposter Only Remembered One Detail]]. The duplicates only got Pinkie's personality, and wouldn't have fooled any of her friends if they had bothered to try talking. They are exaggerated, fun-loving versions of the real Pinkie Pie and don't have Pinkie's memories (Pinkie has to teach them her friends' names) or the same love she has for her friends.

herself so she could spend time with all her friends at once.
* LackOfEmpathy: This is what makes Pinkie's clones different from the original...sort of; they have the capacity original. She has Empathy, and other things, in addition to FUN! This is why she slows down her dive and splashes quietly out of consideration for empathy, but without Pinkie's memories they don't have anyone to be empathetic towards.Rainbow Dash.



* MundaneMadeAwesome: Inverted with paint watching; the point is to force the pinkies so do something mind rendingly boring to weed out the real one. Spike does a PassThePopcorn bit, but eats it all before anything exciting happens.

* NeverSayDie: Twilight's spell is specifically stated to send Pinkie Pie's clones "back where they came from", and describes the possibility of using this on the real Pinkie as "sending her back", and Pinkie says "goes back into the pond". However, since the clones never existed inside the pond before Pinkie created them Twilight is basically killing them by sending them back to nonexistence. Also Pinkie Pie doesn't elaborate when she says
-->'''Pinkie Pie''': What if I don't pass? What if I'm not the real Pinkie Pie?

* TalkingToThemself[=/=]ThinkingOutLoud: Pinkie playfully chastises herself for it while walking to the Mirror Pool for the first time. Then she wonders if talking to her clone counts as the same.
* TastesLikeDiabetes: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] in-universe. The first Pinkie Pie copy is [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny easily distracted]] by Fluttershy's critter picnic, which she and the real Pinkie agreed sounded just as much fun as the barn raising at Sweet Apple Acres. Later, the Pinkie copies trashing the picnic is treated as [[SeriousBusiness no less serious]] than their ruining the Apples' barn raising or Rarity's boutique.
-->'''Pinkie Pie copy:''' She offered me something else fun to do: a picnic! With cute little animals!\\
'''Original Pinkie:''' Aw, how could you say no to ''that''!!\\

'''original:''' Applejack.\\
'''copy:''' ''(wailing)'' So I didn't do anything fun at all!!

** More like ConservationOfDetail. The duplicates actually acted as rationally as Pinkie ever does until the original told them to have fun. Later, when rounded up, they were obedient and rational. As the intermediate part of the story was about them causing trouble, scenes of them being reasonable simply weren't worth showing.
** Possibly a case of peer pressure as well. The clones are all extremely suggestible, and were simply a bad influence on each other.
