* BaseBreakingCharacter: Babs Seed. She's either a [[JerkassWoobie complex, sympathetic character]] or her actions, the [[KarmaHoudini lack of punishment]] for those actions, and her [[MostAnnoyingSound abominable accent]] have made it difficult to sympathize with her.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Twice in the song "Babs Seed", the CMC are being chased on a two-dimensional plane and then the camera angle changes to the edge of the plane, which the CMC fall off, in a three-dimensional fashion!



* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: The big criticism of the episode is that Babs' bullying came off as far worse then what her FreudianExcuse was meant to cover. Her bullying the CMC in excess of, even without, [[PeerPressureMakesYouEvil Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon's influence]], and the lack of any visible remorse for her actions while she was bullying them resulted in many finding her [[KarmaHoudini lack of consequences undeserved]] and undermined the anti-bullying aesop. Luckily, her [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E9AppleFamilyReunion subsequent appearance]] onward was positive enough to show her deserving of forgiveness, letting Babs increasingly [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap live her bad rep down]].

to:

* UnintentionallySympathetic: The Cutie Mark Crusaders came off as such since they were genuinely hurt by Babs' bullying. Since she treated the CMC far worse than Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon ever did up to that point, fans wished they would have gone on with their plan to send her down the hill in the sabotaged float. The show painted them in the wrong for doing it but even as they tried to pull back their punch, Babs continued to push them around anyway.

* AssPull: Babs Seed's FreudianExcuse for bullying the crusaders comes from out of nowhere and it forces CMC to withdraw their plans for revenge.

** Applejack never tells the CMC that Babs was bullied for being a blank flank back at home, because she did't want her to feel singled out. Even though it is abundantly obvious that the CMC are absolutely obsessed with cutie marks, and they were immediately pestering Babs about it from the beginning.

* HarsherInHindsight: When we meet Diamond Tiara's mother two seasons later, it turns out Babs telling her about everything wasn't actually much of a threat.

** Babs rams into Pinkie Pie's float while Pinkie happens to be driving it. Despite now being a witness to Babs' bullying, [[AdultsAreUseless Pinkie doesn't even react]].
