* AssPull: While it had been established as early as [[Recap.MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters "Boast Busters"]] that Twilight Sparkle could perform many different spells whereas most unicorns can generally only do one, her ability to use Rarity's gem-finding spell had never been brought up or mentioned until Spike brings it up out of nowhere.
* EnsembleDarkHorse:
** [[SassyBlackWoman Sapphire Shores]] was somewhat popular within' the fandom at the time though not as popular as Photo Finish or Hoity Toity.
** The Diamond Dogs were this at times.
* FridgeBrilliance: Dogs have much better hearing, so of course they found Rarity's whining more annoying.
* HarsherInHindsight: In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess Secret of My Excess]]", Rarity revealed that she had been aware of Spike's crush for a long time. As early as this episode, we can see her exploiting this by flirting with him to get him to dig up jewels for her.
* HilariousInHindsight: [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor "A lady is never jealous"]]
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Those who weren't fond of Rarity finally came to like her as a character in this episode.
* {{Wangst}}: Rarity is at her wangst-y best. She practically ''weaponizes'' whining to ultimately reverse the situation on the Diamond Dogs.
