* AssPull: If you didn't follow the foreshadowing, [[spoiler: having Discorded Whooves saving both Scootaloo and Lightning Blitz]] would be this.[[spoiler: It '''''is''''' Discorded Whooves after all...]]
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The constant chain of mistreatment and dangers gets tiresome after a while.
* HarsherInHindsight: Diamond Tiara making fun of Scootaloo's pregnancy becomes a lot more cringeworthy now that season 4 had Tiara making fun of Scootaloo for not being able to fly.
* JerkassWoobie: Rain Catcher was a jerk for getting Scootaloo pregnant and leaving her, but after learning of his [[FreudianExcuse issues]], like his [[DisappearedDad problems with]] [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/53119862734/apparently-its-fathers-day-for-some-of-you father figures]], and [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/45712936527 his]] [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/52354785711/i-didnt-even-remember-the-bet-all-i-could-think being unsure if he did]] [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/53965583987/um-insert-a-mental-flash-of-every-rainloo care for Scootaloo]] [[http://ask-rain-catcher.tumblr.com/post/53974488866 or not himself]] it's tough not to feel a ''little'' bad for him.
** He later gets some CharacterDevelopment and finally owns up to his mistakes, apologizing to Scootaloo.
** Also, some fans attribute this to [[JerkAss Jet Set and Upper Crust]] (partly due to a DracoInLeatherPants effect perhaps) because of the [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/35808403333 reveal]] that [[LawOfInverseFertility they can't have a child easily]], and Upper Crust's genuine sorrow [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/37439684503/note-he-teleported-them-back-to-canterlot-not here]] (the fact that WordOfGod says they ''[[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/53619960385/i-got-their-explanation-for-why-they-chose-sandys-ad do]]'' [[http://samrosemodblog.tumblr.com/post/53638994448/i-think-anon-needs-to-realize-that-its-not-like-uc-and care]] for Lightning somewhat probably helps).
* MoralEventHorizon:
** Pokey Pierce crossed it by framing Scootaloo for his own murder of Clearwater.
** In Sandy's backstory, the [[http://motherlyscootaloo.tumblr.com/post/66390041055/sandys-backstory-part-3-part-1-part-2-part-3 two colts who dropped Sandy off a roof]] because she was so good that the other students had to work harder ''really'' crossed it!
** Diamond Tiara when she sabotaged Scootaloo's scooter before Scootaloo jumped onto a half-pipe, so that Scootaloo will be the odd filly out in the CMC with [[spoiler:Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle having already gotten their cutie marks]]... all because [[DisproportionateRetribution Scootaloo punched Diamond Tiara]] [[NeverMyFault for calling Lightning Blitz "stupid"]]. And she faces ''absolutely no retribution '''whatsoever'''''. [[KarmaHoudini As to be expected of Sam Rose]].
* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: Ever since the crossover with ''Blog/DiscordedWhooves'', some fans have noted how the tumblr has shifted to having DarknessInducedAudienceApathy, similar to that with Discorded Whooves, as something negative constantly has to happen to Scootaloo, big or small. Same could be said with Sandy. It doesn't help that Miss Twilight Sparkle is now a recurring character ever since said cross over..
** Even more than some have called Sam Rose on this and he verbally '''denies''' it despite it showing. He will literally call out anybody who accuse him and copying the Discorded Whooves formula despite evidence showing the tumblr is falling the Discorded Whooves formula.
* ToughActToFollow: While it gets it's fair share of love, it isn't considered in pair with SilentPonyvilleChronicles.
* TheWoobie: Scootaloo and Sandy.
