Added DiffLines:

* HeWentThatWay: When Applejack tries to get to Twilight's library, she sees (from a hiding place inside a bush) a whole crowd of brainwashed ponies in her way. Then Rainbow Dash flies out and announces to them that she knows where Applejack is! AJ briefly thinks Rainbow has succumbed to the curse and betrayed her--but Rainbow instead points down a random street and leads the crowd ''away'' from AJ.


* CartesianKarma: Generally speaking, the ponies are [[NotHimself not themselves]] when they subject Applejack to cartoony abuse, but they ''are'' themselves again when the universe [[HoistByHisOwnPetard hoists them by their own petards]] as punishment. The curse works by altering ponies' perceptions, so Applejack's tormentors all think they're genuinely helping her, and have no idea how much AJ actually hates it. But when those same ponies wind up on the receiving end of their own inflate-y devices, they're fully aware of what's happening to ''them'' (even if they're still under the curse), and they hate it just as much as AJ did.



** Nominally applies to Applejack since she's cursed to be a ButtMonkey to everyone that lays eyes on her, and at the end of the day, that's what we're here for, right? However, she dishes out about as much punishment as she receives, and the wide-reaching consequences of her curse aren't PlayedForLaughs.

* InflatingBodyGag: The story's bread and butter, really, happening about two or more times ''per chapter''. Applejack's curse makes whoever looks at her believe she's having trouble breathing, in some way or other. Their attempts to "help" her always result in poor AJ blowing up like a balloon.

Similarly, Rainbow Dash pacifies Twilight by using Applejack as a high-speed projectile to land inflated-rump-first on her. And later, when an obese Fluttershy's chair is buckling beneath her increasing weight, Applejack sends Spike flying across the room and times it so he lands under her chair just as it breaks, crushing him under her now-enormous butt. Turns out if you increase the size of a pony's rump, they make very effective weapons.

However, rather than perform a PainPoweredLeap, she merely rolls over and flails her puffy legs around, as she lacks the manual dexterity to do much else.

Although some of these may have been [[ObfuscatingStupidity completely intentional]] on Pinkie's part, since she's also the most inflate-happy pony of the mane six, with or without the curse.
