* KarmaHoudini: Outside of speeding up Tank's hibernation, Dash doesn't seem to get into any trouble for messing with the Cloudsdale's weather factory or neglecting her duties as Ponyville's chief weather pony.


* CatharticCrying: When Rainbow Dash is despondent over her failed attempt to stop winter from coming, Fluttershy bluntly tells her friend that she's going to have to spend the winter without Tank. This leads to Rainbow wailing with vigor over her soon-to-be loss. Rainbow Dash is not known for crying an awful lot, only shedding a few tears in the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup" and weeping silently in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E7MayTheBestPetWin May the Best Pet Win!]]". Adding her grief over Tank hibernating to her "tough girl" exterior only makes her bawling in this episode all the more cathartic.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Bathos}}: The scene where Rainbow Dash starts crying is a mixture of sadness and humor. In addition to cartoony OcularGushers, there are jokes between all of the crying about how [[StoicWoobie Applejack cries on the inside]], and the over-the-top nature of Rainbow's bawling is meant to cause some awkward laughter.


* InelegantBlubbering: When Rainbow Dash breaks down crying in the third act, she starts loudly bawling her eyes out.
