%%* TooDumbToLive

!!'''''Other''''' characters

!!'''The Smooze'''
--> '''Voiced by:''' Jon Bauman

A magically created abomination, formed of purple slime from an enchanted recipe. A self-perpetuating mass that seeks to simply drown everything underneath it.

* BlobMonster: Very much like ''Film/TheBlob1958'', it's basically an ever-expanding mass of purple slime. It just keeps on growing and growing until it envelops everything.
* EmotionEater: Those struck by the Smooze have their positive emotions and ambitions stolen, reducing them to petty, perpetually angry jerks who can't cooperate with anyone for anything.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Yeah, [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed G1 has a bunch of these]]. A strong contender for the title of the ''worst'' is this stuff, an ever-spreading glop that buries all as it expands seemingly with no limits; if even a little of it touches you ''nothing'' will get it off and your personality will be warped into a JerkAss, so even if you live for now you're definitely ''out'' of the fight to prevent it from continuing its spread and eventually burying you and the rest of the world alive. It makes no special effort to go after sentient beings or settled areas; it spreads, period. That's what it does, that's what it ''is,'' and it doesn't need to hate you or even know or care that you're there to steamroll right over you and keep going. Its impersonal, all-consuming nature gets it compared to CosmicHorrorStory threats, and quite justly: the "cosmic" bit (as described in early descriptions of Creator/HPLovecraft's stories) means you're doomed because ''you're just that insignificant'' before something that doesn't need to know you to kill you.
* VillainSong: ''Nothing'' can stop the Smooze! Yes, the stuff ''actually joins in,'' showing sentience only here. But really, knowing it's alive after all just makes it scarier. It also incidentally demonstrates with one line that it really doesn't distinguish between its supposed masters and the ponies:
-->Witches: No matter what you do, it's gonna get to you...
-->The Smooze, with one of its many faces looming over the witches' boat: And you! ''AND YOU!''

* KnightOfCerebus: Put it like this. The first few minutes are laughing, sun-light ponies playing and having fun. Then Tirac appears, with his sinister deep voice and his pulsating, freakishly heartbeat-like bag of magic, and everything goes to hell.

* OCStandIn: In the Friendship is Magic fandom, she is often depicted as Rainbow Dash's mom. It doesn't hurt that LaurenFaust said that trademark loss is why Dashie isn't a new Firefly, and that she wouldn't mind Firefly being Dashie's mom. That means to most of the fandom, it's WordOfGod confirmed until an actual episode ''demonstrates'' otherwise.

* LostInImitation: [[MemeticMutation Who's a silly pony]]? ''Not'' this one! The WalkingDisasterArea AJ is actually the ''UK comic book version.'' This one shows no clumsiness; her one accident is a bridge that was ''clearly'' far from up to code. If you ''know'' about the comic book version, it's easy to imagine a perfectly sturdy bridge breaking because it's ''her,'' but again, it's clearly not the case. Also, ending up covered in smashed apples was Firefly's fault; she tried a stunt and flew into AJ and her barrel of apples. Also, this AJ ''looks'' so much like the FIM version that she's equally liable to end up being portrayed the same, even though she didn't have that personality. Of course, because she's a one-shot character whose only importance is having a bridge break so the sea ponies could show up, you kinda ''have'' to look to the other versions to give her a personality.

* {{Expy}}: Rarity from ''Friendship Is Magic'' is based on her.



* InvisibleParents: Her mother never appears in the special despite being in the previous one.



* AscendedExtra: She doesn't get to do much here, so you'll have to check the [[Characters/MyLittlePonyAndFriends the regular series' character section]] if you want to know her better. But while most characters from the two specials don't return, this ''background pony'' goes on to be a main character in the show, and remain that way despite {{Hasbro}}'s MerchandiseDriven shows usually having a high cast turnover, with only latest toys getting major roles. The only pony character to be in both this special and the final episode of the show? You're lookin' at her. (The only ''character'' who can say that is Spike; intro'd in the first special, he alone is there from beginning to end; not even Megan and her siblings can say that.)
