* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Jack has been through it, and how. Let's see: he starts as [[EvenEvilHasStandards evil, but with standards]], then has a turn as a good guy, only to appear to backslide in his fight against Trixie, be possessed by [[Characters/DoctorWhoMasters the Master]] (and later, Sunset Shimmer), go off the moral deep end in his plot to defeat Tirek, and [[spoiler: be corrupted by the Alicorn Amulet on his second trip to Canterlot High]]. You kinda have to feel sorry for the guy.

* BreakingSpeech: More than a few in the second story.
story; it's centered around Discord, so what'd you expect?
* {{Crossover}}: Of the massive variety in ''Lord and Master'': Nightmare Dash even provided [[AllThereInTheManual an appendix]] immediately after to explain things to non-Whovians.
* DeconstructionFic: Regarding Mare-Do-Well.
Mare-Do-Well. ''Turning Trix'' would also deconstruct the real danger behind even comedic enemies like Trixie.
* DespairEventHorizon: Rainbow Dash hits hers, hers early on, but comes back.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: According to WordOfGod. According to Nightmare Dash, the story has been going on for so long, the earlier chapters no longer reflect his writing skill, and he has considered rewriting them entirely. Especially true of the first chapter, which is a massive backstory dump about the protagonist.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Jack.
Jack West; this is implied to be one of the factors that drives his HeelFaceTurn.
* GrowingTheBeard: According to WordOfGod, ''Turning Trix'' is this. In addition to a more fluid and descriptive style, it also marked the end of subdivided stories; every one since then has been released as a single chapter.

Long-term, though later chapters would downplay this.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: Between Rainbow Dash and the rest of the Mane 6, then fixed.
fixed as part of the Mare-Do-Well arc.
* VillainProtagonist: Initially.Initially, and still true depending on your opinion of Jack West, especially considering his more recent moral zig-zags.
* VillainSong: Averted by name in ''Lord and Master'', only to be a key part of MusicalEpisode ''Dazzled''. In addition to the Dazzling's existing repertoire, an increasingly edgy and threatening Jack turns "I Don't Care" by Music/FallOutBoy, "Seven Seas of Rhye" by {{Music/Queen}}, and "Free Bird" by Music/LynyrdSkynyrd into villain songs (the latter even referencing its violent use in Film/KingsmanTheSecretService). Bits and pieces of [[Theatre/JekyllAndHyde Alive!]] appear in both chapters as well, though never in full.
