Tensions between new allies could unravel the great quest before it begins!


  • Big Eater: Meadowbrook turns out to be this; When the group have a meal before departing the swamp, Rockhoof is surprised to see her with as much food as him.
  • Call-Back:
    • Meadowbrook curing Swamp Fever is referred to, joined by an image of her wearing her mask by a Flash Bee hive. Her encounter with "zombie ponies" is also brought up.
    • Rockhoof mentions fighting a volcano. He also brags about changing the course of a river (which was witnessed in the previous issue).
  • Interservice Rivalry: Rockhoof seems to have this with Grimhoof of the Royal Pegasi Legion, but it turns out to just be a friendly shouting match.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Due to throwing down the wrong potion, Stygian turns several of the attacking bunnies into giant, musclebound brutes.

  • Ship Tease: Rockhoof briefly becomes attracted to Meadowbrook when he finds out she's as big an eater as he is.
    Rockhoof: I think I'm in love.
  • Shout-Out:
    • One of the bunnies attacking Meadowbrook's home has blue and white face paint.
    • While trying to remember Flash Magnus's name, Rockhoof guesses "Hay Garrick", "Marey Allen" and "Whinny West". These are references to Jay Garrick, Barry Allen and Wally West, who all carry the title of The Flash.
  • Tempting Fate: Used at the end of the issue.
    Rockhoof: Rockhoof fought a volcano and won. Rockhoof changed the course of a river. Rockhoof once ate an entire boat of oats in one sitting. Whatever pesky creature is giving you trouble, Rockhoof can handle it!
    Stygian: Dragons!
    Rockhoof: I... uh... I may have spoken too soon.
  • Use Your Head: Rockhoof headbutts one of the bunnies who gets into Meadowbrook's home.

  • Wingding Eyes: The bunnies Stygian splashes with the confusion potion have spiral eyes, while Rockhoof has hearts in his eyes when he becomes attracted to Meadowbrook.
