* BittersweetEnding: Moon has retrieved the schedule book for her people so they can organize themselves and finally learns to relax and think about herself for once. But it's treated somberly, given she's resigned herself to being a [[BystanderSyndrome bystander]] who [[StoppedCaring no longer has Mewni's well-being at heart]]. What's more, it ends with crows flying overhead, hinting that Mina may be a bigger threat than Moon is giving credit.

* ScoobyDooHoax: Mina had been scaring people away from Butterfly Castle as a BedsheetGhost, leading to rumors that it’s haunted (or cursed; no one is quite sure which).

* DoubleMeaningTitle: TheReveal of Mina being 'The Ghost of Butterfly Castle'. In a literal sense, she disguised herself as a ghost to scare away potential looters and keep Butterfly Castle safe. In a figurative sense, Mina represents the past of the Butterfly regime by embodying their BloodKnight creed and unwavering racism towards monsters.

* RealityEnsues: Even though, Mina was able to tame the crows. The berries still turned them to stone because they weren't gentle enough while holding them. Their beaks accidentally punctured the berries and the berry juice turned them to stone. Fortunately, according to Eclipsa, the petrification wears off over time so the crows will be fine. As long as they don't get smashed to bits.

** Its further enforced just how far the Mewmans have fallen once Eclipsa took the throne. In addition to the many Mewman refugees being TooDumbToLive without Moon to guide them, the Mewmans that have remained by the ruins of Butterfly Castle have descended into total lawlessness without Moon, Eclipsa being too focused on restoring Monster rights and mending relationships with other kingdoms to do anything about it.

* BookEnds: The episode begins with Moon sitting in a hammock, gazing at a sky full of birds. The ending has her return to her hammock and gaze at the sky. Only this time, crows fly overhead.j

Added DiffLines:

* GoneHorriblyRight: Downplayed. River wanted Moon to be a little more "selfish" for a change instead of wearing herself ragged trying to care for her [[TooDumbToLive incompetent]] "neighbors". It's not PlayedForDrama when it does go "horribly right", but it's sobering to see Moon decide she's done caring about serving Mewni, even to the point that she doesn't try to warn Eclipsa about Mina.


** Why does Jushtin have a tapestry if he was ruler nobody wanted to remember?

Added DiffLines:

** Why does Jushtin have a tapestry if he was ruler nobody wanted to remember?

Added DiffLines:

* SeriesContinuityError: Eclipsa's tapestry is shown with patched tears like the rest, even though Meteora had specifically left it undamaged (as it was showing her parents). And if Mina tore it up herself to spite Eclipsa, why would she bother repairing it?

Added DiffLines:

* CreepyCrows: Mina's crows and her pet "Sebastian".


Added DiffLines:

* IDidntMeanToKillHim: Mina accidentally petrified Manfred when he spitefully ate Eclipsa's porridge. Rather than accept blame, Mina believes that Manfred was ''forced'' to eat it.

* LastOfHisKind: Mina is the last of Solaria's {{Super Soldier}}s, the rest either dying from battle or [[TheSpartanWay the process that empowered them]]. She is [[DissonantSerenity quite glib about the situation]], just taking her survival as [[TheSocialDarwinist proof that she's the best]]. Mina even repeats the scenario with a bunch of crows, being proud that she trained Sebastian but not caring about all the other crows she petrified.
