** [[MilesGloriosus The Great and Powerful Trixie]] comes to Ponyville where she puts on a magic show, boasting her abilities. Applejack, Rarity and Rainbow Dash comment on Trixie's showing off and agree that she needs to be taught a lesson in humility. However, Rainbow Dash heckles Trixie who points out the "neigh-sayers in the audience" and challenges anypony to an impromptu magic showdown. While Rarity, like Trixie, is a unicorn who can match the show mare's skills...\\

** [[MilesGloriosus The Great and Powerful Trixie]] comes to Ponyville where she puts on a magic show, boasting her abilities. \\
'''You'd Expect''': Trixie to have done her homework and realize that boasting in Ponyville is a social no-no. This is a world where communication is rapid by magic, and she has to know her audience. Thus she'd adjust her show to just performing, with a teensy bit more modesty than in previous performances.\\
'''Instead''': Trixie doesn't. She experiences a CultureClash when the Mane Six, except for Twilight, take offense at how much of a loudmouth she is. Trixie thus finds her performance threatened and, rather than TurnTheOtherCheek like Twilight, she retaliates. This wins her NoSympathy when the Ursa Major destroys her home at the end of the episode.

'''Instead:''' She loses her temper and gives Pinkie Pie and Rarity TheReasonYouSuckSpeech on the basis they have no right to tell her how she should live her life. She calls out Pinkie Pie for having a simple mind and accuses Rarity of being petty. Naturally, this upsets Pinkie Pie and Rarity so much that they run away crying. It's only after Fluttershy looks at her reflection in a puddle that she [[HeelRealization realizes]] [[IAmAMonster the impact Iron Will made on her]].

** In Part 1, Twilight Sparkle goes to see the bride (and former babysitter) [[BrokenPedestal Princess Cadence]] isn't what she used to be, is acting really rude to her friends and family, and finally discovers something suspicious about her.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' She'll gather clues to back her claim just like in "Mmmmystery On The Friendship Express" and go to Shining Armor or better yet, Princess Celestia privately to voice her suspicions and present her evidence, thus preventing any need for a spectacle. Or she could have at least [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech call Princess Cadence out]] [[WhatTheHellHero on how rude she's being]], that just because it's her wedding there's no reason to act like a SpoiledBrat.\\
'''Instead:''' Twilight straight up accuses Princess Cadence of being evil in front of everypony, including Shining Armor and Princess Celestia, causing Princess Cadence to cry. The result was Shining Armor gave a WhatTheHellHero speech to Twilight, her friends believing that [[ClingyJealousGirl Twilight was jealous]], causing them to shun her, and her mentor became disappointed in her. Thus nearly losing her friendship and respect from them... [[spoiler:if not for the fact that this Princess Cadence really ''was'' evil]].

'''You'd Then Expect:''' They would question themselves on whether or not Twilight is right about Cadence being evil or not when she said that, and would suddenly be suspicious of Cadence's behavior. At the very least, they could've given her the benefit of the doubt.\\
'''Instead:''' They ''completely'' forget about how much Cadence had been acting like a jerk to them and straight up ignore Twilight anyway, with Shining Armor calling her out for her accusation. The end result? [[spoiler:A Changeling invasion on Canterlot after Shining Armor's forcefield weakens. Needless to say, in an {{In-Universe}} example, Queen Chrysalis {{Lampshade|Hanging}}s this when she [[JerkassHasAPoint calls out the Mane Six on being too caught up in their wedding plans]].]]

** Discord is split from the group, then just ''happens'' to find Fluttershy.\\
'''You'd Expect''': Him to not fall for the obvious trap, especially after he sees a dozen Fluttershies afterwards.\\
'''Instead''': He falls for it. Then again, they might have [[BreakTheHaughty broken him]]...

** Discord is split from the group, then just ''happens'' to find Fluttershy. He immediately recognizes that this is a trap, even lampshading it, so clearly he isn't fooled. Then, dozens of Fluttershys show up, crying at him that "I'm the real Fluttershy!"\\
'''You'd Expect''': Seeing as how Discord just recognized that the changelings are trying to mess with him, he'd see that this is yet another trick and ignore them. In all likelihood, none of them are the real Fluttershy, and the real one is still being held prisoner somewhere.

** Fluttershy freaks out when she finds out that a dragon has taken refuge in Equestria, and whose smoke is dangerous to the living creatures there. Due to being terrified, however, she becomes paralyzed and unwilling to help her friends journey to get rid of it, despite being a FluffyTAmer.\\

'''Instead''': She still denies the Pinkie Sense and each time she gets hurt by failing to understand it. She gets stung by bees, falls into Applejack's hidden door and gets her head smashed by a flower pot, an anvil, a hay cart and a piano from a moving company run by pegasi above.
