** JerkassWoobie: Both the above and the below tropes paint Applejack in a flawed, but sympathetic light. Her actions are all in good intentions but she has a prideful and misguided direction to it.
*** [[Creator/RobertLouisStevenson Lies told in silence are the cruelest]].

* OvershadowedByControversy: This episode appears to be only remembered just for Derpy's cameo, canonization and subsequent de-canonization. Virtually everything else about it (with the exception of Rainbow Dash refusing to turn around for Rarity and Pinkie Pie) is quickly forgotten.

The scene where Pinkie uses her MotorMouth tendencies to get Applejack to talk is remembered as well to an extent though, particularly because of WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft using that scene for their [[EarWorm super catchy song]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W29uMcp5BWU Gypsy Bard]]

** This episode has joined the likes of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E8TheMysteriousMareDoWell The Mysterious Mare Do Well]]" as one of the series' most divisive episodes. Strangely, it wasn't due to the events of the episode itself, but Derpy's cameo, both before and ''after'' the infamous edits made to her appearance. Was it a nice tribute to the fans of the show, obnoxious pandering to those fans, possibly offensive to disabled people, or all of the above? Things got at least 10 times worse after the edits[[note]]Which edited out Derpy's name, changed her voice, and switched her crossed-eyes to correctly aligned eyes.[[/note]] that were made. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement AND THAT IS ALL THAT WILL BE SAID ON THE MATTER.]]

** There are some who consider the episode to be very tedious due to it's predictability as well as the contradiction of Applejack being the Element of Honesty.
** To a lesser extent, the contradiction of Rainbow Dash being the Element of Loyalty gets this due to [[ForgottenFallenFriend leaving Pinkie Pie and Rarity behind.]]
*** While there are some fans who want both the defenders and the detractors of Rainbow Dash and Applejack's actions to ''get over it,'' stop demonizing Dash, and move on.



* HarsherInHindsight: Compare this episode where Granny Smith says "Our little bushel just lost one apple" (in reference to Applejack's desertion) while Big Macintosh and Apple Bloom sob in the background. Mildly sad at the time, but absolutely heartbreaking after "Apple Family Reunion", [[spoiler: where it's revealed, albeit implicitly, that Applejack's parents are dead.]]
* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: Fluttershy and Twilight Sparkle: "We can always find a way to fix the hole in the roof, but if you don't come back who's going to fix the hole in our hearts?" Even the tomboyish Rainbow Dash shed a tear at that line.

* TearJerker: The Apple family's reaction to Applejack not coming back is pretty heartmelting (particularly Apple Bloom), as is Applejack admitting in defeat her reason for avoiding her friends, she didn't come first in ''any'' event, and considers herself a failure because of it.
** Becomes even ''more'' of a TearJerker, as well as Harsher in Hindsight, when watching the episode after seeing "Apple Family Reunion". In that, everypony in the Apple Family makes an appearance... except [[spoiler: Applejack's parents, who [[StarsAreSouls confirmed to be dead]]]]. Now watch that aforementioned scene again ad realize how heartbroken the Apples must have been at the thought of [[spoiler: losing ''another'' family member]]...
* {{Wangst}}: It can be a little hard to feel pity for Applejack being rude to her friends, breaking a Pinkie Promise, and leading them on a dangerous desert chase, just because she [[spoiler: didn't win first place.]]

* TheWoobie: [[spoiler:Applejack. Just listen to how downright ''heartbroken'' she sounds revealing how she failed! She feels like she's a complete and utter failure for not getting the awards the town expected her to.]]

* AccidentalInnuendo / GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Cherry Jubilee is styled like a "madam" of the Old West, and being "boss of Cherryhill Ranch" may give a few different visions of [[TheOldestProfession what actually goes down there]]. Not to mention she can always use "[[AccidentalInnuendo a pony with quick hooves and a strong back]]".

** Just before Derpy falls through a hole she created, she tries to save herself by grabbing a hold of Rainbow Dash's ''flanks''. To make matters worse, after Derpy winds up [[TakingYouWithMe pulling her down as well]], [[HoYay we don't see either of them coming out]]...



** Pinkie and Rarity's trip back on the handcar. The two characters are rarely paired up with each other and the stories usually play out like the WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy episode ''Road to Rhode Island''.

** Also, as Applejack herself points out, she didn't actually break the Pinkie Promise: she told everyone she'd tell the truth "at breakfast", so since she was never ''at'' breakfast, she didn't have to tell the truth.
