** It's also huge in Canada. While the show has been treated roughly by Creator/NickJr in recent years and has been shoved into early morning timeslots, it is one of Creator/TreehouseTV's flagship shows and is the most-aired show on the channel that's not [[CanadianSeries produced in Canada]].

*** The ''Equestria Girls'' spinoff, [[GrowingTheBeard beard-growing]] aside, is still relatively overshadowed in popularity by the main series in it's home territory. In Japan and other parts of Asia, it's the MorePopularSpinoff. While ''Friendship Is Magic'' has been considerably slow getting new material released in Japan (Season 3 is still yet to be released), ''Equestria Girls'' was a hit, as ''Rainbow Rocks'' and ''Friendship Games'' were released relatively quickly after the first film and well before their respective ''Friendship Is Magic'' seasons were ever aired. This move has been criticized by some Japanese fans, since the first three Equestria Girls movies contain massive spoilers for the last episodes of Seasons, 3 4 and 5 respectively.

*** Bushiroad attempted to invoke this with their adaptation new J-pop-style openings and endings for each season, an excellent dub with some bigger-name voice actors (Creator/MiyukiSawashiro and Creator/KikukoInoue, just to name two), and a little VarietyShow segment at the end. They put so much effort into it that one could easily mistake it for a Japanese production with unusually smooth animation (at least until some of the songs play untranslated). Unfortunately, as mentioned above, it didn't hit with its target demographic of elementary-aged girls, likely due to that market already being saturated with more popular domestic franchises see ''Franchise/PrettyCure'', ''Franchise/HelloKitty'', etc. The dub was also criticized for cutting out scenes for time and to use in the new openings, which caused a few plot holes, not to mention leaving a few of the songs undubbed. [[note]] There was a rumor going around at one point that Hasbro Studios offered to animate new intros and outros specially for the Japanese market, but Bushiroad declined. [[/note]]
