Trivia: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic S3 E5 "Magic Duel"
  • Ascended Fanon
    • A common story for Trixie in fanfiction is that, after the events of "Boast Busters", she became a laughingstock and was unable to go anywhere with her magic show without being laughed out of town. This episode officially canonizes that.
    • The term "Alicorn" is used, which is the term used by the fandom for Winged Unicorns (even though the word actually means "unicorn's horn"; more on that in a second). Indeed, the Alicorn Amulet takes the shape of a Winged Unicorn. Given the context in which it is used, however, it can refer to both a Winged Unicorn and the material that a unicorn's horn is made of, as it is increasing Trixie's unicorn powers. (The show would later use the word "alicorn" to specifically refer to the species.)
  • What Could Have Been: This episode was originally intended for Season 2.
    • Also, the Mayor was suppose to have some lines, which is why Cathy Weseluck is still credited for her, but it got cut for time.
