* BrokenBase: Rarity's characterization, depending on who you ask. Did she act way too selfish and was she right to enter the contest to upstage Rainbow Dash?
* FridgeBrilliance: Of course the Wonderbolts failed miserably at saving Rarity. They're a show team!
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Pinkie trying to eat the liquid rainbow is funny. But, it becomes unintentionally creepy if you're even semi-familiar with the fanfics ''FanFic/RainbowFactory'' (which is about rainbows being made from brutally-slaughtered pegasus ponies who have failed their flying exam) and ''FanFic/{{Cupcakes}}'' (A [[SarcasmMode lovely]] fanfic about Pinkie essentially being a deranged cannibal).
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The music Rarity choses for her routine is very similar to the waltz from Tchaikovsky's ''Swan Lake''.
