* AccidentalInnuendo: Rarity: "''I'm'' the one who should be mobbed by strangers wherever I go!"
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Photo Finish seems to be quite popular in the fandom.
* ParanoiaFuel: Pinkie Pie stalking Twilight Sparkle to make sure she doesn't break her "Pinkie Promise". She hides in a bowl of sponges and even takes the place of Twilight's reflection in a mirror!
* TheScrappy: Pinkie Pie is this for the episode, due to her constant popping up to keep Twilight from confessing on what Fluttershy and Rarity think about each other, which would have solved the episode's problems. And even at the very end, after Rarity and Fluttershy tell the truth to each other, she's off the hook on their secrets, but blurts out the "Spike loves Rarity" secret...despite the fact that everypony knows about it, and Pinkie's disappointed at that.
** And apparently the staff picked up on this as [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E20TheOneWherePinkiePieKnows she later gets a taste of her own medicine]], even getting the hammy '''FOREVER''' turned on her.
* {{Squick}}: Fluttershy's magically forced nose-picking scene in the second fashion show. The ponies (even Derpy) in the audiences were really displeased.
