* ToxicFriendInfluence: Billy, ''big time''. When he overhears Rainbow and [[spoiler:Firefly]] getting close and lovey, he finds it absolutely hilarious and later tries to deflect all guilt when Gilda rightfully calls him out on eavesdropping. [[spoiler:Over the course of one chapter, he provokes Gilda into hitting him, plays himself up as the victim when she attempts to do so, makes her feel guilty, and works in several insults toward Rainbow - including what could easily be considered a homophobic remark - and starts actively trying to convince Gilda to cut ties with her. She lets this all go and even seems ready to have sex with him about two seconds later, after he makes a potentially hollow promise to give Dash another try at friendship.]]

[[FromBadToWorse THEN when Gilda finds out that Billy has all but blackmailed Dash and Firefly and calls him out on it, he trashes her for saying, rightly, that revenge was her call and her responsibility and then, after Dash tells him to "stallion up", locks both females in the room and flies off to trash Firefly and Dash's reputations, all without a hint of guilt because he thinks Dash is a stuck up brat]].]]
