Added DiffLines:

* NeverMyFault: That said, Trixie ''completely'' blames Twilight for her loss of reputation around Equestria even though Twilight had tried to avoid showing her up despite Trixie constantly goading her (an the rest of Ponyville), Snips and Snails had only brought the Ursa Minor to Ponyville because [[HoistByHisOwnPetard they had believed her boasts that she had vanquished one before]], and Twilight ''had'' to take care of the Ursa Minor or all of Ponyville would have been smashed. While Trixie eventually takes responsibility for the alicorn amulet this episode, she never admits that the events of the previous episode were partly her own fault.

Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Apparently none of the citizens of Ponyville thought the amulet Trixie was wearing was strange at all, or how it glowed red just like her magic aura now did, or seemed to make her eyes glow red too. Twilight even states she can't believe she didn't recognize the Alicorn Amulet from studying it.

Added DiffLines:

* CheatersNeverProsper: Subverted in the first duel, when no one notices Trixie with the amulet and she beats Twilight. Played straight in the second duel, when Trixie loses because she was outsmarted with Twilight's own tricks and she removes her amulet to put on the seemingly stronger one.

* MisplacedRetribution: Trixie blames Twilight for humiliating her, even though Trixie only has herself to blame for not living up to her own hype. However, she spends the majority of the episode tormenting [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom Snips and Snails]], who were the ones that provoked the Ursa Minor to test said hype.

* EasilyForgiven: Twilight accepts Trixie's apology despite the fact that she enslaved all of Ponyville and threatened to take over Equestria. It's semi-justified by the fact that Trixie was under the control of the amulet the entire time.

** Twilight herself is pretty angry when Trixie goes after Spike.

* TheCaligula: Trixie forces Snip and Snails to carry her in a wheel-less wagon because she [[ItMakesSenseInContext doesn't trust wheels.]]

* TheCaligula: Trixie goes mad with the power she has over Ponyville. She forces Snip and Snails to carry her in a wheel-less wagon because she [[ItMakesSenseInContext doesn't trust wheels.]]wheels]], wants Applejack to grow apples without the peel, forces Pinkie Pie to [[BulletDancing dance for her]], and has placed Mayor Mare in a gilded cage for no apparent reason other than her own amusement. Basically, any element of this trope that isn't inappropriate for the target demographic applies to Trixie under the Alicorn Amulet's influence.
