* UnfortunateImplications: As [[WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter Mr. Enter's]] [[http://youtu.be/B104Pw-8JaY review of the episode]] points out, replace "Dragons" with any race/gender in regards to the conversation during the dragon-watching. He also noted that the moral was conveyed by making men look boorish and cruel, suggesting that this episode preferences one gender over the other.

* UnfortunateImplications: As While the moral of the episode is intended to be that it's okay for males to be interested in feminine things, as [[WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter Mr. Enter's]] [[http://youtu.be/B104Pw-8JaY review of the episode]] points some]] [[Creator/JoshScorcher reviewers]] point out, if you replace "Dragons" "dragons" with any race/gender other race in regards to the conversation during conversations had early in the dragon-watching. He episode, the story comes across as xenophobic. Even disregarding that, these reviewers also noted that note the moral was being conveyed by making men look boorish and cruel, suggesting that this episode preferences one gender over the other.
cruel does far more harm than good.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** To the dragon species as a whole.
*** One can easy see the teen dragons as {{jerkass}} and the adults as uncaring of the situation of what they do, but it could be seen as [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy a dragon's way of life]]. With the teens not being mean to Spike but toughening him up. In real life, most reptiles have little involvement in child-rearing. On the other hoof, Spike may have just chosen the bad crowd when it came to dragons and the teens are just sadistic bullies.
*** Since phoenixes are immortal, smashing their eggs may be a way to keep their population in check.
*** Did the dragons accept Spike into their gang because they respect him or did they want to use him as bait for the phoenixes and not give a flying feather on what happened to him?
