Added DiffLines:

* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: Trixie eats at a workingpony's diner and imagines that the regulars will make an attempt on her "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin nearly spotless virtue]]." When they instead ''ignore'' her and eat their meals, she's miffed.


* SoulJar: The [[spoiler:Alicorn Amulet]] contains a copy of the soul of [[spoiler:King Sombra]] and will both corrupt the wearer to evil and overwrite her personality with [[spoiler:Sombra's]] own.

Added DiffLines:

* ApocalypseCult: The Shadow Covens. Their purpose is to summon the Shadows to Earth, which they believe will result in them being granted great power. They are [[spoiler:sort of right; the Shadows will [[DemonicPossession possess]] them and the hosts will be among the last survivors of Earthlife as the Shadows spill out across our Cosmos]].


* AmplifierArtifact: The Alicorn Amulet, which magnifies the magic of the wearer.
* ArtifactOfDoom: The Alicorn Amulet will corrupt whoever wears it to evil [[spoiler:and bring back Imperator Sombros]]. Corrupting [[spoiler:Trixie, the Element of Illusion]] would constitute a major victory for the Shadows, and [[spoiler:she]] is powerful enough to [[spoiler:house Sombra's soul]]. [[spoiler:Trixie]] of course wants neither fate, but has no idea of the true nature of the Amulet.

* TomeOfEldritchLore: The ''Codex of Shades'', the original copy of which contains the complete instructions for [[spoiler:calling the Shadows to Earth]].


* IneffectualLoner: Despite her undeniable thaumic power and great skills as a stage illusionist, Trixie repeatedly fails because she does not work well with others.

* CuteAndPsycho: Trixie is definitely attractive, and she has a fairly low threshold for minor violence, when something sets off her HairTriggerTemper. Fortunately both for herself and others, she has an explicit [[ThouShaltNotKill Code Against Killing]]. However, as the Ponies are less violent than Humans, Trixie's tantrums lead others to perceive her as a dangerous madmare.

* CannotTellFictionFromReality: Trixie cannot always tell the difference between her fantasies of ultimate heroism and the reality of her life as a traveling showmare.

* DreamSue: Trixie imagines herself to be the impossibly-perfect heroine of a never-ending high-fantasy adventure. The fact that she ''really is'' the [[PhysicalGoddess Avatar]] of a [[PowersThatBe Cosmic Concept]], and that this ''really does'' result in her being followed by the Night Watch (who want to talk to her) and ''hunted'' by the Manehattan Stallion only makes this worse. Hilariously, Trixie is mostly oblivious to both her true nature and to all the ''real'' intrigue and danger around her.

* GrumpyBear: Trixie assumes that she lives in a cruel and hostile world surrounded by untrustworthy Ponies. Of course, due to this and her other flaws, Equestria is a lot more hostile to her than it would be to most Ponies.
