* IdiotPlot: After the decision to test the dubiously loyal Discord backfires, their plan B is to hide their magic in Twilight Sparkle, whom Tirek didn't know of. This also backfires because [[FailedASpotCheck they forget to remove the stained glass window depicting Twilight]], Discord could have and did just told him about her, and keeping it hidden from her friends causes them to be caught off guard and used as hostages to force Twilight to give up her magic. Tirek would have won if not for his backstabbing the still loyal [[StoryBreakerPower and useful]] to him Discord needlessly soon and [[BondVillainStupidity not eliminating anyone after getting what he wanted from them]].



** If [[{{Satan}} Lord Tirek]] hadn't crossed this already, he certainly did when he imprisoned Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rarity and Spike, drained their magic, betrayed Discord, ''and'' drained him of his magic. Even earlier than that, he banishes Celestia, Luna, and Cadance to Tartarus, even though they have no magic and are powerless to do anything against him.

** This is widely regarded as the best episode of the series, and meant that the Season 5 finale had a lot to ensure up to. A big point of contention being the HeelFaceTurn of the BigBad, since Discord got a far better received one here despite it being only a subplot in comparison.
** "Twilight's Kingdom" left such a huge mark and had the biggest status quo shattering event in the show, that it led to some fans declaring FanonDiscontinuity over the rest of the series. Season 5, while still considered a good season in its own right, never quite reached the heights of Season 4 and its finale, and it was made worse with Seasons 6 and 7 being seen as the weakest season in the show for the former and a SoOkayItsAverage season for the latter. The story's impact is felt even further in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017 the 2017 movie]], which took a lot of its influence from it in terms of plot and scope.

** "Twilight's Kingdom" also left such a huge mark and had [[NothingIsTheSameAnymore the single biggest status quo shattering event event]] in the show, that it led to some fans declaring FanonDiscontinuity over the rest of the series. Season 5, while still considered a good season in its own right, never quite reached the heights of Season 4 and its finale, and it was made worse with Seasons 6 and 7 being seen as the weakest season in the show for the former and a SoOkayItsAverage season for the latter.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Let's just say it's obvious where a fair chunk of Season 4's budget went. The effects in these two episodes are some of the greatest yet seen.

* FridgeHorror: {{Defied}} when Twilight grabs Owlowiscious moments before the library is blown up.

* TearJerker: The destruction of Golden Oaks Library qualifies as one. It's been the HomeBase for Twilight since [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E1MareInTheMoon the]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E2ElementsOfHarmony very beginning]] we've come to known and now it's gone.

** The Mane Six's [[ReformedButRejected open]] [[TheFriendNobodyLikes hostility]] toward Discord all season long could have been acknowledged as [[ThenLetMeBeEvil a possible reason]] for Discord's betrayal and something for them to own up to, but it's never even implied. However, they are genuinely horrified when they see Discord being betrayed, implying that they actually did have some real feelings for him.
