* HilariousInHindsight: Pinkie Pie says that "the only thing that should be rubbed in anypony's face is chocolate cake" Guess what happens three episodes later during the birthday party.
* IdiotPlot: The episodes entire plot hinges around the mane six never directly confronting Rainbow about her boasting until the very end and Dash herself being incapable of figuring out what it means to be a real hero until it has to be spelled out for her.

* ShoutOut: Rainbow Dash compulsively getting Granny Smith across the road when she didn't want to could be a reference to CarryOnConstable. Also Rainbow's attempt to fix the leak in the dam could refer to the story of the [[Radar/DadsArmy little Dutch boy]].

* NeverLiveItDown: This was the first episode written by Merriwether Williams, who still hasn't escaped a reputation as the show's worst writer despite several of her later episodes being better received. See especially the episode "Bats," which was universally loved...until it was revealed the writing credit was a mistake, and it was actually Williams.

** Dash's friends were either having some good-natured fun among themselves and dropping hints to Dash that she would be happier and more successful if she just improved her attitude and acted more like Mare-Do-Well (i.e. humbly and without showboating), '''or''' were cruelly mocking Dash and her misfortunes while hypocritically praising Mare-Do-Well (i.e. themselves), fully aware that attacking Dash's competitive personality this way would only cause her grief.

Still a third group takes it as them dropping hints and wanting her to put two and two together.

** If it isn't [[AccusationFic accusation fics]] or [[DeconstructionFic deconstruction fics]], it's stories involving the title character having her own adventures, even in instances where she's played by a different pony.

* ShowDontTell: The main aspect that sevearly harms this episode, we only see the mane five casually commenting on Rainbow Dash's boasting, while the main argument for them assuming the Mare Do-Well mantle is that "she wouldn't have listened anyway" we never ''see'' them actually ''try'' to talk with her or at the very least consider the option. Even if she didn't listen, it would've been a nice gesture of faith they trusted her enough as ''friends'' to try talking with her first before resorting to more drastic measures.

*** ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/255458/can-they-work-it-out Can They Work It Out?]]'' is quite popular for exploring both sides of the arguments concerning the mane six's actions, placing both them and Rainbow Dash in the wrong for logical reasons.
