1* EnsembleDarkhorse: ** During Pinkie's surprise party, one pony in the background for some reason had FishEyes. The fandom nicknamed her Derpy Hooves and the name stuck, with even Lauren Faust using the name on occasion. She will become the BIGGEST darkhorse of the entire show.** The mint-green unicorn that happily waves to Twilight as she heads to Canterlot's library is later seen at the Summer Sun Celebration hopping up and down excitedly while staring at the camera and standing next to a pony that looks like Bon Bon from ''MyLittlePony Tales''. The fans dubbed the unicorn Lyra, she's become almost as popular as Derpy and these were only the first of her many {{Funny Background Event}}s.* FourthWallMyopia: Twilight is often rooted for by fans for not wanting to make friends with any of the residents of Ponyville because of how much they bother her. However, given that Twilight is the main focus of the episode, we mostly see things from her perspective as we see the other ponies bothering her and coming off as a nuisance to her. The other ponies aren't aware of Twilight's lack of interest in friendship, most of the actions they do that bothers her is accidental and they don't mean to bother her, and future episodes show that this is usually how they act as characters. While breaking into her home to throw a party is wrong on the other ponies' part, Twilight refusing to take part in their friendship is part of Twilight's character development as well learning to accept the other ponies for their mistakes that bothers her rather than isolating herself from them. * HarsherInHindsight: Seeing Twilight turn down the invitation to Moondancer's party is very sad after seeing the Season 5 episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E12AmendingFences Amending Fences]]".* HilariousInHindsight: ** Twilight's observation that "All the ponies in this town are ''crazy''!" turns out hilarious when taking into account that every Mane Character, even Twilight, suffers a nervous breakdown at some point over the course of the season. It's made even funnier when Creator/TheHub uses the voice clip in commercials for the show; it's not false advertising!** Princess Luna became Nightmare Moon because she felt unloved. Between her and her sister, ''she'' is the more popular pony with the fans.* JerkassWoobie: Princess Luna/Nightmare Moon. Her life wasn't particularly happy.* MemeticMutation: Ten. Seconds. Flat.* {{Squick}}: Pinkie Pie eating the hot sauce covered cupcake. * UnintentionallySympathetic: Twilight Sparkle. We're supposed to believe she is wrong for not wanting to make friends, however, the other ponies constantly (yet unintentionally) bother her throughout the day.----
