* MultinationalTeam: Star Swirl, Flash Magnus, and Meadowbrook are Equestrian, but their respective tribes only very recently (at the time) formed together into one kingdom (as Star Swirl himself ''discovered'' the Windigos that caused said unification), Mistmane is an Eastern Unicorn from another kingdom at the time ruled by Empress Sable Spirit, Somnambula is from a village that while now part of Equestria was at the time a separate kingdom ruled by its own Pharaoh, and Rockhoof hails from an unnamed island that likewise seems disconnected from Equestria. Their design gives this impression all around: Star Swirl has a more European design, Flash Magnus has a Greek design, Meadowbrook is equal parts South America and the DeepSouth, Mistmane has a Chinese influence, Somnambula has an Egyptian theme, and Rockhoof's village is modeled after medieval Scandinavian culture.

Added DiffLines:

* LivingDistantAncestor: After coming back from Limbo, she's one to Cattail, which she meets upon reinvesting her ancient abode in Hayseed Swamp.

Added DiffLines:

* GruesomeGoat: An evil, cyclopean, apelike being with the horns, legs and eye of a goat, and the one responsible for stealing the Idol of Boreas and causing Griffonstone's decline.


* WorldsStrongestMan: He's regarded as the most powerful unicorn to have ever lived. King Sombra's feats even as a flesh-and-blood unicorn king actually seem to suggest he's more powerful than Star Swirl, though not many creatures in Equestria knew about him. He was certainly this for the period before Sombra showed up and enslaved the Crystal Empire, as well as the period between his being freed from Limbo and Sombra's brief revival. Following Sombra's second death, this title goes back to Star Swirl once again. The Pony of Shadows states he's more powerful than Twilight Sparkle, an alicorn and the bearer of the Element of Magic. [[spoiler:This seems to have changed by the "The Ending of the End"; In Part 1, Star Swirl's magic blasts were unable to harm Tirek (even with Mistmane backing him up), yet in Part 2, Twilight was able to knock Tirek down (and [[FlyingTeeth dislodge a tooth]]) with one blast to the face. It should be noted that at that point, Tirek had become even stronger from absorbing all the Pillars' magic.]]

* AdaptationalBadass: G1 Gusty wasn't a push over, but just one part of the cast. This Gusty is a legendary hero who managed to defeat Grogar, who in this continuity is immensely powerful to the point [[spoiler:his bell alone is able to turn Cozy Glow, Tirek, and Chrysalis into existential threats to Equestria even divided between them.]]

Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: A non-human example in "The Mean 6"; the Tree was the only one that knew the Mane 6's mean counterparts were not the real ponies, and destroys them in response.

Added DiffLines:

* VocalEvolution: Her voice becomes old and wrinkly to go with her RapidAging appearance after she sacrifices her beauty.


* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Somnambula's headdress and clash with a sphinx mark her namesake village as Equestria's version of UsefulNotes/AncientEgypt. Said village also has traits of an actual Egyptian village or town, most of its residents seem to wear kohl, and it is located near ancient pyramids. Further, her homeland was explicitly ruled by a Pharaoh in her time.
