While Smurfette poses for her fellow Smurfs at the annual Art Festival contest, Hogatha the witch uses a magic spell to transfer Smurfette's youth and beauty onto herself to make herself attractive to the real version of Harlequin the wizard whom she meets at a Wizard's Ball.
This story provides the following examples of:
- Brain Bleach: This discussion when Empath, Brainy, and Duncan McSmurf follow Hogatha to a Wizard's Ball after her magical makeover:Empath: It seems that Hogatha wants Harlequin to spend a night with her in her castle.Duncan: That's certainly a picture that I don't want smurfing in my head, laddie.
- Evil Makes You Ugly: Tapper believes this is what became of Gargamel and Hogatha, as he told Empath in this story.
- Magic Kiss: Empath's kiss with Smurfette near the end of the story magically restores her youth and beauty.
- Magitek: Hogatha uses a magic mirror social network called Magebook in order to find a date.
- Nude-Colored Clothing: Smurfette tricks her fellow Smurfs into thinking they're seeing her naked by wearing underclothes that are the same color as her skin, thanks to Empath's manipulations.
- Rapid Aging: Smurfette goes through this when she is affected by the Spell of Syphonia, becoming a really old Smurf in a matter of hours.
- Right Through the Wall: Empath, Brainy, and Duncan McSmurf follow Hogatha and Harlequin home, only to find that she has locked all the doors and windows, and yet through the shutters the three Smurfs could hear sexual activity going on between the witch and the wizard.
- Shout-Out: Mezmaron, the host of the Wizard's Ball, is one for a similarly-named wizard from Hanna-Barbera's Pac-Man.
- Stay with Me Until I Die: As Smurfette under the effects of the Spell of Syphonia becomes so incredibly aged that she is near death, she asks Empath if he would stay beside her if that was going to be her last night alive, and Empath agrees, sleeping in the infirmary bed next to hers and holding hands with each other until morning. Fortunately Smurfette survives into the next day, which is when a Magic Kiss restores her to her full youth and beauty.
- True Love's Kiss: After Empath confesses that he would love her no matter how old she would appear, he kisses Smurfette, and that kiss magically restores her to her young beautiful self. It also has the effect of restoring Hogatha to her proper age and appearance.
