** Tornadoes have been used to clear clouds (and snow, and parasprites...) in a hurry before--Rainbow Dash made a small one on her own in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E10SwarmOfTheCentury "Swarm of the Century"]], but it took an entire team to make a full-sized one in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E11WinterWrapUp "Winter Wrap Up"]].
*** Not to mention [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E22HurricaneFluttershy "Hurricane Fluttershy"]], where a giant tornado created by every pegasus in Ponyville was a major focus of the episode.

* ResetButton: {{Subverted|Trope}}. Many viewers expected Rainbow Dash to leave the Academy by the end of this episode, thus maintaining the status quo. For a second, she ''is'' going to leave, but instead the episode ends with Rainbow staying in the Academy. While things may not change drastically, this will still probably have some impact considering this show's tendency towards Continuity.

* FriendOrIdolDecision: Rainbow Dash has to choose between following her dream and enabling Lightning Dash's reckless actions, or sticking by her friends and resigning. Being the Element of Loyalty, she chooses to resign. What happens next would have done credit to ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory''.

With that, Rainbow Dash quits the Academy and dejectedly returns to her friends, certain her dream of being a Wonderbolt is over...when Spitfire catches up and admits that Rainbow Dash made a valid point about pushing oneself. As such, she forces Lightning Dust into the open and unceremoniously tears off the lead pony badge. Once Lightning Dust has left, crushed and with her tail between her legs, Spitfire gives it to the more deserving, ecstatic Rainbow Dash. Rainbow Dash proudly flies off with her class to finish their training (all while Pinkie complains that Rainbow Dash never opened her care package).
