- Angst? What Angst?: While Trixie does get an appropriate amount of mourning, after she dies a second time and after she's brought back in a new, only for her friends to have to seal her in stone, to stop the darkness controlling her body from hurting any other pony, but in the end, none of them really acknowledged Discord, who had been willingly returned to his stone prison, because he was holding Evil!Trixie down, so the Elements had a clear shot, not even Fluttershy, his only friend at this point.
- Broken Base:
- Was the Bait-and-Switch in chapter ten, a clever and funny, if dark moment, before a very grim arc or was it inappropriate trolling in a chapter that should have been handled with seriousness.
- Was Luna's battle with Monster Trixie, a necessary and well done scene, an unneeded but still entertaining fight, or a completely unnecessary excuse to have a violent fight scene.
- Like You Would Really Do It: Yeah, you would really just kill Trixie out of nowhere.
- The Woobie: Trixie, after trying to get revenge on the ponies who ruined her reputation and carrier, is turned into an undead abomination, a process that takes away anything she had to live for, while making her too ashamed of her appearance and very existence, to want to be seen in public, in world where she used to crave attention. When the Mane Six and Spike, manage to befriend her, it looks like her life is finally starting to make a turn for the better, before she is killed again, before being denied her one chance at peace, by a force that recreates her into a savage monster.
- Trixies mother, Hope Lulamoon had to abandon her daughter after becoming one of the reapers and now has to watch her daughter suffer from the afterlife. And when it looks like she can finally allow her daughter to have peace, outside forces have other ideas.
YMMV / Actually, I'm Dead
