* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: After the group were kidnapped by Overmare due to her rushing into things, she went to the Isle of Pony and trained to be a knight. This greatly augmented her natural superequine strength, making her far more effective and teaching her how to utilize a multitude of weapons.



* OldMaster: After she retired in her old age, she was a mentor of several Shadow Sentinels and their side kicks.

* StrongAndSkilled: The physically strongest of the Seven, she was initially UnskilledButStrong but trained as a knight, making her the most ''skilled'' fighter of the group as well. Notably, by the end of her life she'd become so skilled she was one of the trainers for the Shadow Sentinels and their sidekicks [[OldMaster even in old age]].



* AnIcePerson: Gained the Blizzard Jewel when its former owner Winter Witch dubbed Clover more worthy of it than herself, giving Clover ice and snow manipulation powers. As her Blades of Humility function as skates, this was a major upgrade.
* DanceBattler: She was a ballerina, and thus when she took to superhero work, she incorporated it into her fighting style and became one of these.



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: During the battle with Dark Crystal, she [[spoiler:misread her precognition and only checked if they could steal the Book of Darkness, not if they could actually seal Dark Crystal away in it again. Dark Crystal [[ItOnlyWorksOnce saw this coming and prepared for it]], and kills and absorbs Patch as a result.

Even after the group manages to resurrect and defeat Dark Crystal, Clover harbors immense guilt over her mistake for months until Blue finally talks her through it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BandOfBrothers: Implied.
** Because of Genius Builder/Build Rider's association with Silversmith, the World's Smartest Pony, he also often find himself helping his mentor fight his enemies - most infamously Overmare, his arch-nemesis. Overmare is widely considered ''[[TheDreaded the]]'' [[TheAce greatest]] SuperVillain of the 'Second Age', one of the most dangerous individuals alive on Tellus/Equus and one of the biggest threats to world peace with her incredible genius and implacable ambition for world domination. Despite this, and despite having every good reason to not get involved, the other three Riders all didn't hesitate to help Genius Builder/Build Rider and other heroes battle Overmare, partly because this trope and partly because their heroic character would not allow them to act otherwise.


* NotSoDifferent: She and Silversmith are not so different, in that both are egotistical, InsufferableGenius types with raging character flaws who are rarely if ever wrong. Whereas Silversmith managed to (largely) overcome his flaws with the help of his best friend Metamare and become a much more [[GentlemanAndAScholar personable]] and [[ScienceHero heroic person]] (except [[ItsPersonal to]] [[ArchEnemy Overmare]], in which case he likes to [[IShallTauntYou rub his intellectual superiority over her as part of his strategies against her]]), Overmare never got over it or the fact that she has lost her status as the '[[WorldsSmartestMan World's Smartest Pony]]', becoming an egotistical EvilGenius hell-bent on TakingOverTheWorld.

Added DiffLines:

* EarnYourHappyEnding: According to the writer of their entries, they all achieved their life dreams, lived long happy lives, and died content of old age remembered as beloved superheroes and public figures despite all the enemies, trials, and trauma they had to face in their lives. This was an intentional counterpoint (though ''not'' TakeThat) to the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' version (which the writer was also involved in) where the Tales Seven had to struggle to survive through the apocalypse and are largely treated as outcasts for the rest of their lives due to their role in accidentally causing it.


Added DiffLines:

* LongLived: She passed away peacefully and happily at age 300 due to her awakened Earth Pony magic and anti-senescence treatments.

Added DiffLines:

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Ultimately, they managed to defeat Queen Dark Crystal in the end, despite her being a CosmicHorrorStory level threat.


Added DiffLines:

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: [[spoiler:Manages to defeat Winter Queen and destroy the Devil's Mirror, her power source and one of ''Morning Star's'' children, on her own.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ShesBack: [[spoiler:After spending over a month following the fight with Dark Crystal in a HeroicBSOD over accidentally getting Patch temporally killed in the fight, she finally snaps out of it upon realizing Winter Queen's blizzard would threaten her loved ones. She proceeds to not only snap out of her depression, but ''beat Queen'' and destroy the Devil's Mirror.]]


** Played for laughs: Overmare apparently failed to convince her to join her side during the Tales/Virtuous Seven's brief captivity in her Overdom because Patch, being not very bright, couldn't even understand half of what the [[EvilGenius highly-intelligent super-villain]] was saying. [[EnragedByIdiocy This left Overmare utterly frustrated]], though there are hints to suggest that it was partly an act and [[ThePrankster Patch]] was actually [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu PRANKING]] her.

* RealityEnsues: Patch once threw mud at King Skyline as his carriage was leaving to get his attention when the Tales Seven realize that their friend Rosy might be the lost princess daughter they were looking for. While that worked and Skyline was reunited with his daughter, that act also nearly got Patch ''shot'' by the Royal Family's security detail, since regardless of intention and need Patch was still assaulting a head of state and could had been mistaken as a terrorist. Doubly so since the Royal Family are among the heads of state of the Pranco-Bitish Commonwealth, one of the superpowers of Tellus during the 'Great Wars Era' of the 'Second Age', meaning they are as important and protected as any-pony can possibly get in that time.

* BadassTeacher: As her moniker suggests, she became a teacher as was her dream. She remained a superhero even after becoming one. A drabble shows her talk down a school shooter while [[NoSell tanking their shots to prevent any death]].


Added DiffLines:

* ImmuneToBullets: While the armor the Tales Seven got protects them from most conventional weaponry, Starlight is unique as her SuperToughness eventually makes her impervious to small arms fire even without it.

One of his students, Bright Eyes, the Scholar of Justice was herself elected president decades later.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Went into one after her misreading of her precognition resulted in Patch being killed and absorbed by Dark Crystal, with Dark Crystal's BreakingLecture making it worse. She recovered and the group managed to destroy her after resurrecting, but Clover fell back into this after due to guilt until she broke down sobbing when she confessed her feelings to Blue. Thankfully she recovered.]]
* ItsAllMyFault: [[spoiler:Blames herself for Dark Crystal killing and absorbing Patch, as she misread her precognition and Patch died doing a plan she genuinely thought would work. While the Seven were all resurrected and managed to win, Clover would harbor crushing guilt over it for weeks until Blue helped her through it.]]
