!!This fanfic provides examples of:

* {{Adorkable}}: Midnight, arguably.
* TheAllegedCar: Midnight's cart. He rather gratefully [[DrivesLikeCrazy smashes it into a tree.]]
* AmbiguousGender: Zebra Mask, before [[LargeHam he starts talking.]]
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Tangerine and Violet Shimmer, [[InformedAttribute supposedly.]]
* BigEater: Just ''where'' did those candy apples go?
* [[WhiteMaskOfDoom Black and White Mask Of Doom]]: Zebra Mask wears a drama mask.
* CloudCuckooLander: How ELSE do you explain Midnight's kissing question?
* CoolMask: Zebra Mask.
* DeadpanSnarker: Midnight, along with the canon examples.
** The EPS comes off as this in its first line (see top of page), but this is [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain forgotten]] in favour of it not working properly whatsoever:
--> *Midnight is in the Everfree Forest, outside Zecora's hut*
--> '''EPS''': ''[[BlatantLies You are now in Canterlot.]]''
* DIYDisaster: The reason his cart was in such a horrid state was because of repeated "repairs" that he had to make himself.
* [[HumanoidAbomination Equine Abomination]]: Midnight present himself as one of these, via the Zebra Mask. Chapter 12, anyone?
* ForegoneConclusion: The author has stated several times that "You get no prizes at all for figuring out who Zebra Mask is."
* GratuitousFrench: Zebra Mask.
* [[IKissYourHand I Kiss Your Hoof]]: Zebra Mask.
* [[IntangibleMan Intangible Stallion]]: Zebra Mask does this, although it seems to be more of a hologram-type spell.
* MotorMouth: Midnight when emotional.
* MundaneUtility: Talented in manipulating [[LightEmUp light]] and [[CastingAShadow shadows?]] [[BrutalLegend The greatest concert in the history of mankind.]]
* NiceHat: Zebra Mask wears a black-and-white fedora.
* NoIndoorVoice: Midnight's regular voice is extremely loud, meaning he has to keep a spell casted so his voice stays lowered, as he can't otherwise tell when he's being loud. Without the spell, normal speaking volume to him is loud enough to others that Princess Luna's Royal Canterlot Voice pales in comparison.
* NoSenseOfDirection: How Midnight Green ends up in Ponyville.
** Happens again when he's taking his payment to Big Macintosh. He goes in the exact opposite direction of Sweet Apple Acres, and Rarity immediately jokes about how he'll end up at Fluttershy's house.
** He even gets lost walking to Sugarcube Corner, which is ''just a few steps away from him''.
** According to him, [[ItRunsInTheFamily his mother's even worse.]]
*** This is proven when Horizon literally ''[[UpToEleven cannot find her way across the street.]]'' They're the only ones, though: Midnight's siblings have an impeccable sense of direction.
** And it's partially contradicted in Chapter 7, where Midnight, trying to go shopping for a microphone, ends up in the Evertree Forest, and eventually ''[[FloatingContinent ''Cloudsdale.]]'' He immediately [[LampshadeHanging lampshades this.]]
---> '''Midnight:''' [[SomewhereThisIndexIsCrying I think physics and logic are crying in a corner somewhere.]]
*** Keep in mind that Midnight is a unicorn, not a pegasus, meaning reaching Cloudsdale is ''literally impossible'' for him. And yet...
* ScrewySquirrel: Zebra Mask becomes this in Chapter 6, where he just spends the night taunting and pranking the Mane Cast (except Pinkie Pie) [[ItAmusedMe just for kicks.]]
* ShoutOut: During Midnight's DynamicEntry into Ponyville, he screams "[[WorldOfWarcraft LEEEEROOOOOOOOOY]] [[LeeroyJenkinsVideo JEEEENKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINS!!!!!]]"
** Midnight later sings music by the BarenakedLadies and Music/{{Voltaire}}.
* WildHair: Midnight's mane is well groomed, but his tail is described as explosive-looking, and an attempt to tame it breaks a comb.
* YinYangBomb: Midnight's talents extend to both light and shadow magic
