Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion:
** Oswalt's role as a nit-picky fan is similar to his infamous "Star Wars Filibuster" he performed on ''Series/ParksAndRecreation''.
** He's also famous for his hatred of the ''Star Wars'' prequels, and Quibble's initial explanation of why he thinks the "original trilogy" is so much better could easily apply to that series.


* CasualKink: During a ShipTease montage, Quibble Pants excitedly points out a body pillow featuring Daring Do AllTiedUp. Rainbow Dash responds with a mixture of concern and squick; Quibble counters with an expression that says "ImAManICantHelpIt".

** Part of Quibble Pants' FanonDiscontinuity rant is that the original trilogy was "an amazing nod to old-time serialized adventure books". Creator/GeorgeLucas and Creator/StevenSpielberg deliberately modeled Franchise/IndianaJones after old Republic serials about jungle adventurers, which, of course, inspired the pastiche ''Daring Do''. Quibble Pants's criticism of the books past the original trilogy also mirror common fan complaints about ''Kingdom of the Crystal Skull'' as well.

** Next, it's Daring Do who silences Quibble Pants when he starts protesting they should leave the temple ASAP.


* WhoWouldBeStupidEnough: Quibble Pants does not appreciate how easy it was to fool Caballeron's henchmen during the 'LARP' as it's just another part of the books being dumbed down, not realizing yet that yes, they really were that easy to fool.

Added DiffLines:

* BorrowedCatchphrase: After Rainbow Dash saves him from the broken rope bridge and a waterfall, Quibble Pants can't help but spout "That was ''AWESOME''!" before starting to freak out.


* SmugSmiler: The look on Rainbow's face when she proves to Quibble Pants that Daring is real exceeds even Sunset Shimmer's smile in sheer smugness. Just... [[https://derpicdn.net/img/2016/7/30/1212490/full.png Just look.]] That wouldn't be out of place in a WebAnimation/PonyDotMov animation.

* NotImportantToThisEpisodeCamp: Twilight Sparkle, who is just as much of a fan of ''Daring Do'' as Rainbow Dash (and thus would be able to verify her claims to Quibble Pants), has to miss the convention due to a friendship summit in Griffonstone.



** As they make their escape from the temple with the Cipactli cutting off their route in front, Quibble tells Rainbow and Daring to go around it,whereas the two pegasi misinterpret thinking he said go through it, same as the misinterpretation of Elsa driving the boat in between two large barges whereas Indy said to NOT go between them, in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade''.

* FlatEarthAtheist: The main reason Quibble Pants doesn't like anything later than the first trilogy is that he doesn't believe in the latter works' fantastical elements and impossible feats being unrealistic, even though he is a talking pony in a clearly fantasy setting.

* NonActionGuy: Quibble Pants. He's not nearly as athletic as Rainbow or Daring Do, and further handicaps the trio by not being able to fly. Reflected in that he prefers puzzle-solving and using his wits to solve problems over action and adventures.
