* ArcWords: "Perfect."" Sunset and Pinkie are trying to have the perfect day by seeing [=PostCrush=], and K-Lo and Su-Z want their performance to be perfect before they stop the time loops.


* TwistedKneeCollapse: After Sunset Shimmer breaks the Time Twirler, Kiwi Lollipop falls to her knees from shock before the broken magic item, crying.



* TheVoiceless: Despite appearing in this special, Spike doesn't say a single word.


* JerkassRealization: Sunset double subverts this. After two loops, Sunset just ditches Pinkie Pie entirely to see [=PostCrush=] on her own. When Sunset gets back to camp, the others throw shade at Sunset for it, but Sunset doesn't catch it. A few time loops later, Sunset ends up ranting about her frustrations with Pinkie's attitude to the Dazzlings. This rant ends up overheard by Pinkie, who runs off crying as a result. Only then does Sunset realize that she's been a bad friend, time loops or otherwise.
* KarmaHoudini: Zig-zagged with the Dazzlings. While they have a level of fame, and get away with insulting their fans (and Sunset in one version of the loop), it's made clear that they hate being trapped in the human world without their powers, and with no way to return to Equestria.

It's only after Sunset explains the joke (it's a {{Pun}} on the "three I's" in Pinkie Pie's name) that Fluttershy finally gets the joke and laughs.

Added DiffLines:

* ThePerfectionist: K-Lo and Su-Z, though K-Lo is much more serious about it. If anything at all goes wrong with the set, she just resets the whole day to give them another chance. Popped guitar string, broken drumhead, loose shoe heel, snapped drumstick...


* PerfectionIsImpossible: [=PostCrush=] started the time loop to repeat their performance until t was perfect. Sunset tries to take advantage of this by giving herself the perfect day, but in the end realizes that it's the mistakes that make a day perfect, and teaches this lesson to [=PostCrush=].
