While visiting Canterlot City, the girls are on the scene when a jewelry store is robbed. With the power of their geodes they pony up and sprint into action to pursue the thief. They eventually corner him and apprehend him, and the story is revealed to be a comic book that Sunset Shimmer drew up.
- Art Shift: The story occasionally does freeze-frames in a more comic book-style art, complete with Speed Lines and Written Sound Effects.
- Circling Birdies: Rainbow Dash gets stars orbiting her head after being knocked out. No doubt part of the prevalent comic-book effects.
- The Door Slams You: Rainbow Dash is knocked out by the double doors the thief opens suddenly in his rush.
- Genre Shift: The story is explicitly framed as a superhero romp.
- Holding Back the Phlebotinum: The girls have trouble catching a common pickpocket, who is escaping on foot. Rainbow Dash, Twilight or Rarity should be able to stop him immediately. Sunset obviously wants all of her friends to have time to showcase their powers.
- Moral Dissonance: Sunset has the thief in the comic sent to jail despite his crime being a fraction, and having at least as much mitigating factors, as what Sunset's has (and been comparatively) Easily Forgiven of in real life.
- Mundane Utility: Pinkie's contribution to the chase is to use her explosive powers to... blow holes in a bush to use them as peepholes. A bush she could already see over anyway.
- Reality Ensues: The thief is caught and is mournful over what he did...but he still ends up in jail for his felony.
