** Solaria was the worst of the Butterfly family and would have succeeded in committing monster genocide if she wasn't killed in a monster ambush. Does the war end there or at least deescalate? ''NO'', monsters, like Toffee, aren't going to forget or forgive the monster slaughter and when Comet Butterfly tries to establish a long-term peace accord between the mewmans and monsters, Toffee kills her because of the history between monsters and mewmans.

* TheUpperCrass: The Johansen family that Star's father River was born into is a group of small nobles who live out in the wilderness, engage in savage capture-the-flag games, and apologize to people by handing out hunks of meat with "I'm sorry" engraved in them.


* LuddWasRight: Season 4 veers towards this with regards to magic, showing that the Mewman peasantry are so dependent on the Queen's magic that they can hardly care for themselves. [[spoiler:By the end of the series, Star decides that everyone who uses magic is an idiot that only ever abuses it, and so wipes it from the multiverse entirely.]]

* PrejudiceAesop: This is a major underlaying theme within the series. At first were lead to believe the evil forces were monsters from Star's homeland, Mewni, trying to seize power for themselves. But as the series goes on, we start to see plotlines that showcase the monsters aren't as bad as Star was lead to think, some even just want better living conditions for their families due to actually being ''oppressed'' by the current regime. [[spoiler: The prejudice was so bad, that, during Eclipsa's rule, she fell in love with a monster and birthed a daughter a half-breed. The Butterfly monarchy absolutely rejected the notion of having a partial monster for a ruler and went so far as to secretly switched her out for a normal Mewnian.]] Season three goes into this much more as the series moves into the other realms and we explore more of Mewni. Season four takes it full throttle and showcases how prejudice can have devastating consequences if left unchecked.

* TheScapegoat: {{Implied}}. [[spoiler:In the end of the series, Star deems magic as evil and the cause of all the problems in the series. She states that using magic to solve problems only causes more problems, and the ones using it are all idiots who don't deserve the power they have, her own family included. It's better to not have it than let it be abused by the corrupt and stupid anymore. However, even though it's true that abuse of magic is one of the cause of problems, it's not the main cause. Rather, it was the racism between the Mewmans and Monsters and battle over the lands. It's implied that Star is just ignoring the complexity of the situation because she wants a quick solution to stop Mina, so she decides to destroy magic]].

SelfDemonstrating/StarButterfly (Creator/EdenSher), a teenage MagicalGirl princess, receives the family MagicWand for [[TheHerosBirthday her fourteenth birthday]] and, due to her extreme enthusiasm and inexperience, almost destroys the Kingdom of Mewni with it. Rather than send her to [[BoardingSchoolOfHorrors St. Olga's Reform School for Wayward Princesses]] as punishment, her parents decide to send her to a safe environment where she can learn and practice her new abilities: the Earth "Dimension", specifically Echo Creek, California, where she'll be living with the Diaz family as a foreign exchange student, and attending high school with, their adventure-seeking yet safety-minded son Marco (Adam [=McArthur=]).

Added DiffLines:

* MagicIsEvil: PlayedWith. Magic as a concept was deemed evil by Star, who feels that using magic to solve problems only causes more problems, and the ones using it are all idiots who don't deserve the power they have, her own family included, and the cause of all problems by the end of the series. It's seen as a good thing when Star decides to destroy magic because it cannot be used responsibly, and it causes more problems than it solves. However, despite what Star thought, magic was not the main cause of the series' problems, it was the racism between the Mewmans and Monsters and battle over the lands, and her family abusing magic, that was the problem. Even then, magic was not show to corrupt people or cause their bad actions like Moon siding with Mina, it was rather Moon's stupidity, and unfair grudge against Eclipsa that caused her actions. It's implied that Star is just ignoring the complexity of the situation because she wants a quick solution to stop Mina, so she decided to destroy magic.
