* After figuring out that the sound of laughter destroys the Muffletta Moss, Pinkie and Cheese put on an impromptu comedy show that (with the help of a royal decree from Twilight) has all of Canterlot laughing, wiping out the entirety of the moss in short order.

* When the Grootslang attacks again, Tempest and Rockhoof immediately decide to hold it off while the others get to shelter. They spend most of the final issue of the story fighting it, and though they are ultimately forced to fall back (even after Applejack joins them), they still manage to get in some solid hits. Rockhoof in particular lands crushing strikes on the Grootslang's face twice with his shovel (the second time hitting hard enough to [[WreckedWeapon break the shovel itself]]).
* Zecora and her friends harness the power of the Farasian Elements of Harmony to defeat the Grootslang, reducing it to a harmless talisman.

Added DiffLines:

* When the group encounter a Roc who is unable to fly out of the desert, Dust Devil helps her get high enough to leave by running fast enough to create a wind funnel, even going the extra mile by suddenly stopping, creating enough of a boost for the Roc to finally reach the air currents.
* When stopping so suddenly causes Dust Devil to skid off a cliff, Crystal saves them by creating a giant ice slide.
* When the Grootslang attacks again, Tempest and Rockhoof immediately decide to hold it off while the others get to shelter.

* Since the beginning of the arc, Luna has been consumed with sorrow and fear that she will fall to the dark side again. How do you know she means it when she says she's truly gotten over her fear? For the first time in the arc, she transforms from her Season 1 appearance to her Season 2-onward appearance]]. Simple, yet awesome.

[[AC: Issue #83]]
* Twilight [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E24MysteryOnTheFriendshipExpress once again]] putting her detective skills to good use, figuring out the reason behind Silver Blaze's mysterious disappearance.

[[AC: Issue #84]]
* The final version of Ocellus' dance. Despite being scaled back significantly from what she had planned, it still manages to be quite impressive, with Ocellus changing into several historical figures back-to-back.

[[AC: Issue #85]]
* Applejack manages to temporarily scare off the Wolf Fly-der by talking sternly to it.
* In the {{Flashback}}, young Applejack puts aside her fear of deep water to rescue Big Mac from a overflowing lake.

[[AC: Issue #86]]
* Maud putting together a spectaculer party for Marble in Pinkie's absence.
* After the Friendship Express is stopped by a rockslide, Pinkie ''runs'' all the way to the Pie family farm. While she didn't make it in time for the party, that's still quite impressive.

[[AC: The Fast and the Furriest (Issues #87-88)]]
* Despite having given up apple cart racing years ago, Big Mac is easily able to keep pace with his former friend Silver Streak, despite the latter having been racing every year since.
* Rainbow Dash, depite having some initial difficulty on the rough terrain, takes the lead quite easily, at one point pulling off a spectacular jump over both Big Mac and Silver Streak.
* A villainous example: Dr. Sacks Roamer's orginal plan was simply to cross the finish line with his stolen artifact. Winning wasn't his concern. But when he finds out that his minion Lumpy put the artifact in Rainbow Dash's cart, he puts everything he has into catching up with her.
* Yona manages to stop Roamer from fleeing into Yakyakistan with his stolen artifact by parachuting down on top of him.


* After spending most of the arc (justifiably) terrified of Cosmos, Discord finally mans up and takes on the Spirit of Malice directly, allowing Pinkie Pie to enact a plan to fight Cosmos, removing the crystals that made up her power from her armor and feeding them to Spike. Once COsmos was beaten and her hosts freed, Discord, dressed as a Ghostbuster, caught her in a ghost trap and dumped the powerless draconequus on the moon.
