** Dinky's magical aura is close in color to Derpy's glow atop the tree in "A Hearth's Warming Tail".


* SplitScreen: The song "Flawless" plays with this several times, splitting the screen between two ponies singing, only for them to ignore the separation and reach for each other.

* BookEnds: The episode begins with Toola Roola and Coconut Cream, ex-best friends and fighting each other. The episode ends with them friends again, having truly understood Twilight's friendship journal and that friendship is forever.

* BullyingADragon: The Ponies who gang up on Fluttershy. They're extremely lucky they don't push her far enough to use The Stare, and/or earn themselves a... less-than-happy... visit from a certain [[AFriendInNeed Draconequus]]. They almost earned themselves a "talking to" from Starlight.

* EntitledBastard: The "Sweet Apple Admirers" think that being fans of Applejack entitles them to live on her family's farm and laze around eating apples, taking selfies, and leeching off the Apples' hospitality without doing a thing in return.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: This episode is blatantly the writers venting years' worth of frustrating fan convention experiences all at once, wherein the writers (represented by the Mane Six) are variously hounded by a VocalMinority over gripes and nitpicks, caught in bitter fandom wars over which pony is "better", and find complete strangers getting ''very'' personal with them like they were the oldest of friends.

Then, at the end, the "writers" are reassured about their work by hearing about the positive effect it had on the little girls it was actually for, allowing them to ignore the complaints of the PeripheryDemographic.

* GoneHorriblyWrong: Some of the Friendship Journal's "fans", don't even read it, instead keeping in plastic wrapping as a collectible. Others use it to excuse to criticize, freeload, or argue with each other.

* HumansAreFlawed: Well, ponies in this case but the entire point of Twilight's lecture and the song "Flawless" is that she and her friends all have flaws, and these flaws give them opportunities to learn from each other and strengthen their friendships.

* ThrowTheDogABone: Downplayed. Amethyst Star is Fluttershy's one ardent fan. (She has a few other fans, but they cower when her critics go back to calling her "painfully shy.") Doesn't make her feel any better about her UnpleasableFanbase. Rarity also has a couple of supporters in the crowd.

* StrawFan: The crazy fanbase of ponies is exceptionally nitpicky, overreactive, and unreasonable. Some to the point of attempting to harass and boycott Rarity out of business.

They underscore how mature Toola Roola and Coconut Cream appear in comparison for using the Friendship Journal to learn about friendship.
