- Chapter two has Celestia and Luna fighting an alien attack on Equestria. The aliens never stood a chance.
- In chapter four Matt's squad takes part in a training exercise to fight Shining Armor. Even with them using all their tricks, their opponent takes them apart with ease.
- In chapter seven Matt almost singlehandedly repels an alien attack on Ponyville, including literally crushing spacecraft.
- In chapter 20 Spike gives a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Shirogane - a dragoness thousands of years old and so big her teeth alone are bigger than Spike - over her Fantastic Racism against Twilight and the ponies.
