- Hilarious in Hindsight: The Big Bad of Warmistress of Equestria being Tirac, in light of an updated version of the character being the villain of the Season 4 finale (and Word of God is that he was chosen for the role before the latter fact was announced).
- Older Than They Think: Some readers have noted similarities between Mattias and Flash Sentry. The author was quick to state that Mattias had been thought up long before Flash was introduced.
- Moral Event Horizon: The Siege and Sack of Manehattan is this for Nightmare Moon and her Traitor Legions. The Daughters of Manehattan legion is nearly wiped out, and every citizen captured is tortured and sacrificed to the Chaos Gods.
YMMV / The God Empress of Ponykind
