* {{Foreshadowing}}: Twilight's eventual title and role is all but spelled out in the Princesses' song in the beginning. "As the sun rises, so does the moon/As love finds a place in every heart/You are a Princess, you'll play your part." [[PowerOfFriendship What is to love as the moon is to the sun, and is also, y'know, a pretty regular theme in this show?]]

** Back in part 2 of the season premiere, Celestia points out the six-locked chest is a mystery that won't be solved alone. Discord is the one who solves the mystery, by bookmarking the special lessons in the journal that point out the problems Twilight's friends faced and received items that are actually the keys in disguise.



* IWantSong[=/=]PepTalkSong: Twilight laments that she doesn't have any actual duties in her first song. Later, Celestia, Luna, and Cadance sing to her to assure her that she has a place in helping Equestria.

Added DiffLines:

* PepTalkSong: "You'll Play Your Part", when Celestia, Luna, and Cadance sing to Twilight to assure her that she has a place in helping Equestria.


* KnightOfCerebus: Out of all the previous Knights in the show, Lord Tirek truly stands out, considering he's literally stealing everypony's destiny by robbing them of their magic and cutie marks.

Added DiffLines:

* ItWasWithYouAllAlong: It turns out the book Twilight needed to research the crystal chest was the journal she and her friends had been keeping, and the gifts they received were actually the keys in disguise.


Twilight is then summoned to Canterlot by Celestia to inform her of Discord's betrayal. With no one to stop him, Tirek has free reign to drain ponies across the land. Soon, he will come for their alicorn magic, and with it will be unstoppable. To prevent this, Celestia sees there is only one option: the princesses must give up their magic so Tirek can't take it!

** Many people feared that someone may have been able to escape Tartarus, ''especially'' when Cerberus was away, for a while now. Cue Tirek to confirm those fears.

* UnexpectedCharacter:
** ''Tirek''. Considering Creator/{{Hasbro}} lost the rights to a lot of their G1 properties, a revamp of the original G1 villain (or at least a character based off him) certainly counts.
** Scorpan, here re-imagined as Tirek's brother, also counts, due to having ''less'' a role in the original story than Tirek, but here being the one responsible for his original defeat.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbitionIsEvil: Tirek was corrupted by the promise of power that stealing pony magic would bring him so he willingly made himself a mortal enemy to Equestria.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Greed}}: Absolute Power is the only thing that Tirek wants and respects, no matter the cost.


* BeQuietNudge: Applejack hit Spike on the head for making Twilight feel worse by questioning her not-so-importan task of rolling out the royal banner for the visiting dignitaries.

* MythologyGag: Tirek was originally the villain in the first ''WesternAnimation/{{My Little Pony TV Special|s}}''. Scorpan is mentioned in Lord Tirek's backstory, and both have designs very reminiscent of their original forms. In a larger sense, this two-parter is a celebration of the 30th anniversary (late by one month) of ''My Little Pony'' as a cartoon franchise.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Twilight's friends try to reassure her that her role as the princess is important and there's a good reason she was summoned to the Crystal Empire. It turns out to only roll out the royal banner for the visiting dignitaries. Spike questions this not-so-important task, making her feel worse.

Added DiffLines:

* OrbitalShot: Twilight has one towards the end of "You'll Play Your Part" as she is looking up at the princesses flying around her.

Added DiffLines:

* LoveMakesYouDumb: Lord Tirek realizes Discord's new weakness (his fondness for friendship) and takes advantage of it by coaxing him into joining forces with him. Discord didn't join sides with Tirek ForTheEvulz, he did it because Tirek offered him ''friendship'', not even considering the possibility of betrayal.
