* AngstWhatAngst: Rarity shows this after her failed attempt to lure the dragon out of the cave, caring more about not getting the treasure.
* BrokenBase: Fans are divided on Rainbow Dash towards Fluttershy. Was she the [[OnlySaneMan only sane mare]] or an insensitive {{Jerkass}}?
* GrowingTheBeard: The earliest of several popular choices for when it happened.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Fluttershy is correct in asserting that Spike's not a huge, gigantic, terrifying, enormous, teeth-gnashing, sharp-scale-having, horn-wearing, smoke-snoring, could-eat-a-pony-in-one-bite, totally-all-grown-up dragon. Except later, [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess he becomes just that.]]
** At one point, Fluttershy says, "This is a time for panic!" Pinkie, not listening to her, says, "I'm going to need balloons!" In "It's About Time", she uses balloons to panic.
* WhatAnIdiot:
** Rarity, did you really think it would be a good idea to tell the dragon you would watch over his hoard?
** Likewise, after seeing her other friends' failures, Rainbow Dash decides [[BullyingADragon kicking said dragon]] would be a ''[[SarcasmMode genius]]'' idea.
