* TookALevelInCynic: According to Thunderbolt's ex-wife, Wind Chime, he used to believe that conflicts could be resolved with diplomacy and reasoning. That changed [[spoiler: after his daughter was killed during the Wedding Invasion, and he blamed himself for it because he attempted to reason with the Changelings before they got to her]].

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: Those who are against RARA believe that villains who truly want to reform deserve another chance, and that putting them under watch could hamper their chances of ever fitting in with society again. Those who support RARA believe that no matter how remorseful some villains are for their evil deeds, they need to face the consequences of their actions, ‘’especially’’ when those actions have hurt innocent ponies, and placing any wannabe atoners under intense scrutiny could prevent them from potentially relapsing.

* EveryoneHasStandards: In Chapter 10, Wind Chime asks Thunderbolt if he was going to have Flurry Heart registered with RARA due to her accidentally almost destroying the Crystal Empire in “The Crystalling”. Thunderbolt scoffs at this accusation, saying that he’s not going to take an innocent child who didn't know better away from her family, especially [[spoiler:when he knows how horrible it is to [[OutlivingOnesOffspring lose your kid]]]].

** Thunderbolt, the new Captain of the Royal Guard, [[EstablishingCharacterMoment insults the Mane 6 simply for asking who he is]] and gets so belligerent that ''[[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Celestia]]'' [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness has to shout him down twice]]. However, he's completely in the right when he says that Twilight pulling an EasilyForgiven for every single villain she encounters doesn't always work and that it's an extremely naive way to reform villains.

He’s also right that people who commit crimes need to be held accountable for them, especially if they hurt innocent ponies.


* EasilyForgiven: Deconstructed; Twilight's decision to take Starlight on as a student instead of throwing her in jail for her crimes has raised controversy throughout Equestria; many ponies, especially those who side with Moon Dancer, accuse Twilight of being lenient and naive. Crime rates have also increased since Twilight’s ascension because many think that the Twilight will {{easily forgive|n}} them as well.

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: After Thunderbolt forces Fluttershy to become [[spoiler: Discord]]'s main guard, Fluttershy recognizes that most of the Captain's hostility is simply revenge for something in the past (she doesn't know about [[spoiler: his daughter yet]]) and asks if he's supporting RARA to lash out for something that happened in the past. This actually makes Thunderbolt pause for a minute, but he presses on.

* AdaptationalJerkass: Moon Dancer in this story is more openly hostile towards Twilight than how she was portrayed in the show. Most of this streams from the fact that her sister was injured because of Starlight's recklessness.
