* [[invoked]]DudeNotFunny: Derpy almost drowns in an icy pond, and Flitter and Cloudchaser react by...laughing at her. Rainbow Dash is appalled and calls them out on it, and later convinces Thunderlane to do the same since they're his friends.

* LethalChef: Not one of the worst cases of this trope, but a trip to the kitchen usually ends in disaster for Derpy. When trying to make cranberry muffins, she lit her first batch on fire, somehow simultaneously under-cooked and overcooked her fourth batch, and the disaster of the fifth batch traumatized Thunderlane's mother

* MissingMom: Dinky's mother left the family, apparently due to being unable to cope with her issues.


** The incident that forced her to do so was her taking the blame for her friend Surprise's mistake so that she wouldn't get cut from the Wonderbolts. Rather than praise her for doing the right thing, they get on her case for hanging out with the wrong sort.

* OddCouple: Few in Ponyville expected Derpy to find a coltfriend. On a meta example, Thunerlane x Derpy is a practically nonexistent pairing.

Added DiffLines:

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Supposedly, many ponies make fun of her clumsiness and eye condition, and the rest barely tolerate her for the disasters she causes. Regardless, she still tries to make friends where she can, and it has even paid off occasionally.


Added DiffLines:

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: The reason Derpy fell for Thunderlane.


Added DiffLines:

* CheerfulChild: Rumble, Thunderlane's little brother.


Added DiffLines:

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Derpy's not a genius, but she's more aware of what other ponies say and think of her than they give her credit for.


Added DiffLines:

* StepfordSmiler: Type A: Derpy is almost always bubbly and cheery on the outside, even if she accidentally just caused a small-scale disaster. On the inside, she's very insecure and saddened by all the teasing and disrespect she receives daily.


Added DiffLines:

** Again in Chapter 3, with Rainbow assuring Derpy that she's "cool, even if you or [other ponies] don't realize it."


Added DiffLines:

* [[WhatTheHellHero What The Hell Fillies?]]: Rainbow Dash accosts Cloudchaser and Flitter for laughing at Derpy when she fell in an icy lake, instead of helping her. She also tells them to forget the flight lessons she was about to give them.
