* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Lero is quite the oddity in Equestria, and seemingly everypony has an opinion on him one way or another... Except for Applejack, who [[NoBigDeal never really seems to care.]]

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Lero''': Wow. I had no idea. She’s always been really friendly to me.
-->'''Rainbow Dash''': Yeah, I've heard that about her. ''Total'' sweetheart, you'd never guess that she could kill you in half a second from like three hundred bodylengths away.

* [[StayInTheKitchen Stay In The Bedroom]]: {{Inverted|Trope}}. Lero mentions having once been asked by an unidentified mare why he was out on the street instead of in the bedroom or in the fields. Applejack, Twilight and especially Rainbow Dash are ''livid'' when they hear it, more so than Lero himself.

* ThreeWaySex: Fairly common within herds. Due to polygamy being usual behaviour in Equestria, this doesn't have the same connotations as in [[ValuesDissonance human culture]].

-->Why did she always end up eating fish? She didn’t even like fish and it had certainly never agreed with her. And why could she not talk to Daisy Jo the cow for more than five minutes without salivating these days? And why were the pigs over at Sweet Apple Acres looking so... '''tempting'''?

* WaitForYourDate: Inverted and subverted. Rainbow Dash expects that Lero will take a long time to get ready, but he surprises her by only taking a few minutes.



* [[WouldntHitAGirl Wouldn't Hit A Stallion]]: {{Inverted|Trope}}. Due to the reversed gender roles, hitting a stallion is something most mares would never do. The behaviour is so ingrained that when Lero is threatened by Shimmer, Rainbow Dash after the event is very skeptical that she would have actually gone ahead and done it.

* SexSlave: As a result of the matriarchal culture, stallions usually ended up being used as little more than this in the past, until the princesses put a stop to the behaviour. Apparently FetishFuel in-universe for some, to Twilight's disgust.

* {{Badass}}: Rainbow is already this in canon, but is also one of the few pegasi strong enough to learn earth pony martial arts.



* [[HeroesWantRedheads Heroines Want Redheads]]: Lero is redheaded, and has managed to attract [[{{Badass}} three]] [[CuteWitch heroic]] [[IKnowKungFu mares]].

Added DiffLines:

** To ponies, Lero's sweat smells like high end cologne. Big Mac even mentions how unfair it is for someone to sweat something that he has to shell out good bits for.

Added DiffLines:

** Lero calls Lyra "Horny".

Added DiffLines:

* DidntThinkThisThrough: While Rainbow Dash is trying to explain to Lero why she won't be around him for a week or two due to being in heat and not wanting to get pregnant, Lero asks if she considered that he might not be capable of getting her pregnant. They are two different species after all.


* DeliberateValuesDissonance: In-universe, this affects a lot of Rainbow and Lero's relationship, as well as Lero's interactions with other characters. Exploring these differences and Lero attempting to adapt to them is an integral part of the story.
** In particular, Lero's attitude towards nudity causes much confusion for ponies and is frequently brought up.
** Human patriarchal culture, and specifically the concept of males defending females, becomes a repeated CultureClash when in a society where the men are supposed to be defended by women. Lero standing up for his mares rapidly escalates even small problems into major disasters as the nearest mares want to defend their stallion.
** Twilight's attempts to compensate for this when she tries courting Lero and Rainbow Dash fail spectacularly, as a result of her trying to extrapolate human culture from gryphon and dragon behaviour.

''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/27874 Xenophilia]]'', written by [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/AnonAuthor AnonAuthor]] and published on [=FIMfiction=] by [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/AnonponyDASHIE AnonponyDASHIE]], opens several months after [[MeaningfulName Bellerophon]] "Lero" Michaelides' unexplained arrival in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]]. Despite missing his home and family, Lero has adjusted well -- he has multiple paying jobs, a nice house, and a close friendship with Rainbow Dash. Said friendship gradually grows into love, but Lero fails to pick up on it until Rainbow impulsively kisses him in the opening chapter. The relationship soon escalates into explicit human on pony sex scenes.
