- Actor Allusion: The fact that Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie have the same actress is mocked a bit, when Rainbow Dash can somehow tell their identical-sounding screams apart.
- Blooper: When Pinkie assaults Spike with cake, her Cutie Mark fails to render, leaving her with a blank flank.
- Jossed: The Wonderbolts' presence within easy flying distance of Ponyville is going to wreak havoc on a number of Rainbow Dash fics.
- Prop Recycling: The objects in Spike's hoard mentioned under Call-Back. It's unlikely that he could have obtained an identical trophy or football from ponies on the street. There's also several other elements seen from earlier episodes (the punch bowl, a scooter that looks very much like Scootaloo's (which he also attempted to take), the kitchen sink, and so on).
- Working Title: Had two: first "Giving Dangerously", then "Attack of the 50 Foot Dragon".
