New dangers plague the legendary ponies, but with the help of a new member, they may be able to overcome the odds long enough to meet their true foe!


  • Blood Knight: Both Rockhoof and Flash Magnus are very enthusiastic about taking on the mummies. And after a moment of watching, Mage Meadowbrook also joins the fray, claiming she's been "spoilin' for a fight".
  • Call-Back: Flash Magnus's previous encounter with dragons is mentioned.
  • Covers Always Lie: The canines on the cover, or anything like them, don't appear in the issue or anywhere else in the series.
  • Fastball Special: Rockhoof uses his shovel to throw Somnambula at the lead mummy.
  • Friendly Enemy: Despite being at odds with each other, both Flash Magnus and the lead dragon are quite friendly, the dragon even wishing Flash good luck when he goes to talk with Rockhoof.

  • Rampage from a Nail: The dragons were attempting to cross into Equestria's borders not to start a fight, but to seek a cure for "wingbreak", which Meadowbrook recognizes as scalerot. After Meadowbrook provides a cure, and tells them how to make more, they depart without any further trouble.
  • Ship Tease: Meadowbrook blushes when Rockhoof compliments her.

  • Tempting Fate: Courtesy of Somnambula:
    Somnambula: I have a good feeling about you guys. This is definitely not the sort of team that's going to end with a world-threatening magic battle. Why would I even say that?
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Rockhoof tells Meadowbrook this when she doubts herself.
