** Nightmare Moon initially judges [[ShrinkingViolet Fluttershy]] to be a "coward." Then[[TheBeastmaster Fluttershy]] stands up to that same manticore and befriends it in a matter of seconds, ''against Nightmare Moon's direct MindManipulation'' (Nightmare Moon had infiltrated the creature's nervous system and was sending electrical impulses directly to its brain centers). After that, Luna refers to her as the "mind-witch" in her own thoughts.

*** When Nightmare Moon collapses the ledge on which the Mane Six are standing, Applejack is the only one of the four non-Pegasi to ''save herself'' from a lethal plunge into the canyon. She does this by grabbing a root with her teeth on the way down. Then, realizing that Twilight Sparkle is in danger, she ''lets go'' of the root, makes a controlled slide down to the cliff edge, and holds onto Twilight long enough for Rainbow and Fluttershy to save her. And herself? She bounds down the vertical slope like a mountain goat, [[Boisterous Bruiser smiling happily]] at each leap.

** At first Nightmare Moon assumes that [[{{Cloudcuckoolander Pinkie]] [[GenkiGirl Pie]] is just plain [[TheFool "simple"]]. Then Pinkie dispels one of her strongest and most dangerous area enchantments -- a combined Illusion, Fear and Animate Object spell -- apparently by just [[TensionCuttingLaughter laughing]] at it, but Luna can tell that Pinkie has actually performed a powerful [[RealityWarper reality warping]]. In-story the effects are described as the AntiMagic equivalent of a FantasticNuke!

Added DiffLines:

* As in the original TV episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E2ElementsOfHarmony "Elements of Harmony"]], each one of the Mane Six gets a moment to shine. Some get more than one. Several are exceptionally Awesome.
