** Also Fluttershy's "long term solution" could only work in a magical land where all animals are at least semi-sapient; in real life it would be disastrous. "When pests are destroying your orchard, hand over part of your land to them. [[SarcasmMode They'll definitely understand and respect the boundary you set and not, for example, breed explosively, expand to ravage your orchard anyway, and then either starve to death or move on to destroy someone else's orchard]]."

Fortunately, Equestrian bats can be reasoned with and so they won't do this.



* FriendToAllLivingThings: This episode [[DeconstructedTrope slightly deconstructs]] Fluttershy's nature as one: her friends point out that by refusing to interfere with the vampire fruit bats in their natural habitat, she'd be putting Applejack's entire orchard and livelihood at risk.

The deconstruction is that, by being siding with one groups of living things she is siding against another group. It is difficult to be friends with two competing sides.



* KangarooCourt: Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Twilight Sparkle are quick to take Applejack's side against the vampire fruit bats, and completely disregard Fluttershy's arguments in their defense.

** As part of her transformation, Fluttershy can hang from trees with her tail. Thus proving that she [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E23PonyvilleConfidential ditched her tail extensions]].
*** Or simply never had tail extensions to begin with, as not all of Gabby Gums gossip was true and she has made certain motions with her tail in previous episodes.

* DarkerAndEdgier:
** The vampire fruit bats are this compared to the mostly-harmless and rather comical fruit bats from "Apple Family Reunion".
** This episode also brings Fluttershy into a serious conflict with her friends.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent[=/=]OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Fluttershy is accidentally transformed into a vampire pony by Twilight's spell. However, she's only took on the characteristics of the vampire fruit bats (she gains fangs, her wings turn bat-like, her eyes change color, her [[PointyEars ears turn pointy]], and she can hang upside down from trees) and nothing really mystical beyond that. She only targets the apples as her food source and still has her reflection in mirrors (though she is warded off by them). Oddly though, she doesn't speak while in this form, mostly hissing until she's changed back. Even more odd is that her cutie mark changes to bats after she's transformed. Additionally, Fluttershy has the standard werewolf AlternateIdentityAmnesia upon being turned back to normal. So it's a weird combination of the two.

Additionally, Fluttershy has the standard werewolf AlternateIdentityAmnesia upon being turned back to normal. In short, while vampire imagery is used heavily throughout, Flutterbat is much closer to a lycanthrope (nyctohip?).
