- Accidental Innuendo: Luna gives Derpy a rather flirtatious look at the post office.
- Fanfic Fuel: What made Celestia so afraid of chickens?
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: As this is supposed to be about getting the ready for the Mane Six to rule Equestria, this episode is the perfect way to properly introduce Kibitz from the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (IDW) comic series and give Raven who has always been The Voiceless in the show prior a proper speaking role. Neither ideas were implemented.
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: As the very premise of the B-plot was getting the Mane Six ready for politics, this is probably the one episode where introducing Equestrian politics and World Building wouldn't be out of place. The Mane Six wound up organizing a parade instead, something that usually doesn't need any political experience.
