- Later, she gets a cybernetic replacement for part of hind leg.
- Amazonian Beauty: Silver Storm. Oh◊ so◊ much!◊
- Boom, Headshot: How Wildfire dies. The image continues to haunt Silver throughout the story.
- Buffy Speak: "I could feel a piece of steel rebar stabbing into my gut like a stabbing pain thing."
- Catapult Nightmare: Averted and Discussed. Silver frequently has nightmares over Wildfire's death, but merely wake up in a shock. After waking up from a nightmare at one point she even felt relieved that this trope didn't happen, noting that it was cliché.

- Ironic Name: Hired Gun's .50 caliber Anti-Materiel rifle, which she names "Subtlety".
- Mama Bear: Silver toward Serenity. Threatening or hurting Serenity is an easy way to get on Silver's bad side.

- My Significance Sense Is Tingling: Silver can sense when a unicorn is using magic nearby due to her Starmetal poisoning.
