Added DiffLines:

* DimensionalCutter: After growing increasingly irritated with Tree Hugger over the course of the episode, Discord raises his eagle claw, [[AudibleSharpness audibly sharpens]] it, and uses it to slice open a portal to another dimension to throw Tree Hugger into.


* MythologyGag: Just like Tirek, the Smooze is inspired by the character of the same name from G1's ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie''. It being immune to magic is also similar to its G1 counterpart, which likewise was immune to everything up to the Rainbow of Light.

* EasilyForgiven: PlayedForLaughs. Discord's outright sociopathic behavior that nearly endangers every pony in the Gala and almost puts one into another dimension is met with a stern scolding by Fluttershy concerning jealousy. The mellow Tree Hugger also rather jovially accepts Discord's apology for "overreacting", though isn't quite comfortable with hugging him just yet.

** When Fluttershy starts talking about Tree Hugger, Discord takes a bite out of his teacup. He'd sooner eat glass than listen to Fluttershy drone on about her new friend. It's also a possible reference to the "I can eat glass" linguistic project.
