** And things are even worse on the Neo-Equestrian side. TheFamine that is sweeping their world is still prevalent, but as Perceptor, Chip Chase and Dr. Whooves discover, Queen Celestia's breaching of the dimensional barrier has destabilised it, meaning that unless all travel between the Hasbroverse reality and the Conversion Bureau reality ceases in two months, a total and catastrophic collapse of both realities could result. Hasbroverse!Earth has to transport what relief supplies it can within those two months to hopefully stave off disaster. There is a pinch more sugar, though, when the Neo-Equestrian remnants contact [[spoiler: the benevolent Shattered Glass Decepticons]] for aid.

** Spike (and presumably all the other non-ponies of TCB!Earth) is unfortunately not going to be able to be turned back into a dragon, as there's no guarantee that the Potion Antidote will work on a non-human. And since the ones who made the antidote, as well as the potion itself, are all locked away in the RB!Equestria (Queen Celestia and TCB!Twilight are in prison, and RB!Twilight and Princess Celestia are back home without a way to contact the other universe) there's little chance anyone can find a way to turn them back.

** When the Barrier first crops up, who does President Abernathy consult? His magic expert, of course. It's been decades, and magic is a real, proven fact in the Hasbroverse (not just with the ponies), so it makes sense that there's experts for world leaders about things like the supernatural.

It's been decades, and magic is a real, proven fact in the Hasbroverse (not just with the ponies), so it makes sense that there's experts for world leaders about things like the supernatural. In the epilogue, President Abernathy proposes that the role be expanded, due to the increasing number if incidences of magic in the world and continued contact with Equestria, a strongly magical-based nation.


* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When Serpentor ordered COBRA's attack on the Decepticons, Cobra Commander panicked, grabbed every bank book[=/=]PIN number he could find, hopped on a hydrofoil with a half-dozen loyal soldiers, and got as far away from Cobra Island as humanly possible. Hence the reason why he was one of the only members to survive the resulting massacre.

It should be noted that many of the "Loyal" soldiers were loyal to Serpentor right up until they were informed of what Serpentor did, at which point they, too, had this reaction.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGoodKing: Surprisingly, Starscream is shaping up to be this for the New Decepticon Empire. It's not totally benevolent, though- as he explains, much of the reason he's acting so nice is because of pragmatism. The Decepticons have no way to increase their numbers, while the Autobots ''do'', and they're outnumbered and outgunned by the Autobots and their allies by a wide margin. Being more benevolent and caring about his subjects isn't just something good for the realm, it's a ''survival trait'' at this point.


Added DiffLines:

** The epilogue reveals that before the two universes are severed again, TCB!Equestria started sending large numbers of Newfoals over to the Rainbow Bridge world to try to alleviate the overpopulation issue (done with the RB!Earth's permission this time).

** In the Earth converted by TCB!Celestia, ''Star Trek'' was never made, and ''Lost In Space'' became the Sci-Fi franchise that replaced it in popular culture. RB!Pinkie, on hearing this, declares it the "darkest timeline."

* BullyingADragon: The reason for Cobra's downfall and near-complete annihilation. See, while Cobra Commander was smart enough to realize that challenging the Decepticons was a seriously bad idea, Serpentor was... [[TooDumbToLive not that bright]]. Megatron utterly annihilated Cobra in retaliation for an assault launched on his undersea base; there are only twelve confirmed survivors by the time of the story. (Cobra Commander himself, Destro and The Baroness -- who had quit Cobra and got married several years before Serpentor made his stupid decision -- Storm Shadow, Zarana, Zartan's daughter Zanya, and half-a-dozen nameless Cobra grunts loyal enough to Cobra Commander that he took them with him when he escaped before the retaliatory strike). It's also rumored that Zartan survived, but it's unconfirmed. That attack went down in history as the ''[[TitleDrop Day of the Broken Fang]]''.
