* BewareTheNiceOnes: Fluttershy takes to ''VideoGame/TheDarkness'' surprisingly well considering the Pegasus' personality, and even names her [[VideoGame/TheSims Sim]] ''Jackie'', the protagonist of ''VideoGame/TheDarkness''.
** Not to mention her rage while playing {{VideoGame/Team Fortress 2}}.

* BreakTheHaughty: Poor Rainbow can't seem to catch a break…she's the first to be annihilated playing [[VideoGame/HaloReach Halo: Reach]], thrashed in her moment of glory by Rarity in CommandAndConquerGenerals (which she kind of had coming due to her ego at the time), shamed by Applejack and Pinkie in ''VideoGame/RockBand'', and is thrashed by ''[[spoiler: Ditzy]]'' in ''Burnout'', a game about speed, ''her special talent''. She does do fairly well at ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' though.

* {{Jerkass}}: Pinkie's behavior during the ''GearsOfWar'' section; behaving like a psychopath after the rest of the gang were already freaking out about the chainsaw-bayonet scene in the game when you chainsaw one of the locusts. She goes so far as to ambush Twilight with a fake chainsaw while she's in bed, an act which scares the unicorn so badly she ''hits Pinkie with a crowbar!''

Added DiffLines:

* FatalFlaw: All six of the girls have one.
--> '''Twilight:''' Her Perfectionism. She's a genius strategist, but has a very hard time 'winging it', meaning that an unexpected change in the battlefield can completely blindside her.
--> '''Pinkie Pie:''' Her randomness. At absolute best, it can give her a distinct advantage of being [[ConfusionFu completely impossible to predict]], but oftentimes it's up there with Rainbow Dash's ego as the SpannerInTheWorks
--> '''Fluttershy:''' Her performance anxiety. While she's almost unmatched in terms of FirstPersonShooter games, she has a tough time with both being watched and going up against other living ponies in general, even over the internet.
--> '''Rarity:''' Her flashy playstyle. Watching Rarity play is often a sight to behold, but unfortunately her desire to look good while playing hamstrings her performance at times.
--> '''Applejack:''' Her stubbornness. She's got enough raw skill to muscle her way through most problems, but if she gets stuck she stays stuck, and her frustration only worsens it.
--> '''Rainbow Dash:''' Her ego. She has a bad tendency to underestimate her opponents and overestimate her skills, making her throw caution to the wind and bite off more than she can chew.

Added DiffLines:

**Not to mention her rage while playing {{VideoGame/Team Fortress 2}}.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: In the ''Rock Band'' chapter, Pinkie Pie's origins on a rock farm are likened to the UsefulNotes/{{Amish}} by Applejack, who regards them with a certain amount of awe and dread for their legendarily grim, depressing, fixated work ethic. The hard work on Sweet Apple Acres is apparently a "luxurious vacation" compared to working on a rock farm.

* TheDreaded: Downplayed: according to the Payday 2 chapter, the Mane Six can't really find a challenge in Team Fortress 2 while playing together because nopony is willing to go up against them.
