* BystanderSyndrome: Twilight has this when, instead of giving Pinkie her mouth back now that Trixie has been rendered harmless and can’t do anything like that, she instead explains how the ruse was pulled off. It gets even worse in that she doesn’t do it until hours later at the end. Yes, if she had given Pinkie’s mouth back before they got the amulet off of Trixie, said EvilOverlord probably would have gotten mad and done something worse, so it’s perfectly understandable for Twilight not to do so before that point, but there’s no excuse for not doing it AFTER they got the amulet from Trixie.

* UngratefulBastard: You’d think Twilight gives Pinkie her mouth back now that Pinkie helped her defeat Trixie and get the amulet off of her, right? Wrong. She doesn’t do it until the very end of the episode.

** After Trixie has been dealt with, instead of taking a single second to fix Pinkie's mouth, Twilight sets to doing the show with Fluttershy's animals for the Saddle Arabians.

* InexplicablyAwesome / CartoonPhysics: We've known for a long time that Pinkie Pie lives these tropes, but here it's ''weaponized'' by Twilight Sparkle: to anypony who doesn't know that Pinkie's the resident RuleOfFunny RealityWarper, she sure looks like she's under the effect of powerful magic.

** When Trixie has been taken care of, Twilight waits until presumably hours later to return Pinkie’s mouth instead of doing so at the earliest opportunity.

* ColorCodedWizardry: Trixie's last ([[CutAndPasteEnvironments real]]) appearance was before they introduced [[ArtEvolution unique magic colors for unicorns]]. Funnily enough, the colors she and Twilight had in that episode are now reversed (Twilight has magenta-ish magic, while Trixie's is gray-blue), except Trixie's amulet makes her aura red.

* CrapsackWorld: Ponyville once it becomes Trixieopolis. Everything up to and including your physical appearance is completely under the control of an emotionally unstable, deranged lunatic with an overblown personal grudge against you and your town, and there's no way for anyone trapped in there with her to either take her down or leave.
