** Similarly, in the [[DeadFic unfinished sequel]], [[spoiler:Apple Buck, the male counterpart of Apple Bloom, as a made-up an excuse for being in Ponyville, claims to be looking for Dusk Blitz, who can help ponies with their cutie mark. When the CMC finally do get there cutie marks, their special talent is helping others with their cutie marks.]]

** The coat-of-arms for the sun kingdom is, by sheer coincidence, ''identical'' to Celestia's Cutie Mark.

* During an interview at a MLP convention back in 2008, Bonnie Zacherle, the creator of MLP, stated that she originally envisioned the MLP franchise as gender neutral, in other words something aimed at both girls and boys. It was the suits at Hasbro who decided that the toys should be marketed exclusively to girls (which, among other things, meant amping up the amount of ponies with pink and purple colors). During the interview, Bonnie remarked that nevertheless there were definitely many boys who enjoyed the toys, and that she "felt bad" that the franchise came to be marketed exclusively to girls because "why shouldn't boys play with ponies too?". Flash forward to 2010 when a certain MLP-reboot is released that is specifically designed to appeal to both genders, and which indeed manages to attract an absolutely enormous amount of male fans. Bonnie must be happy!

Added DiffLines:

* It has been very popular in the fandom to depict the Apples as having a strong distaste for pears and pear farmers, ranging from culinary disagreements and economic competition to it being treated as an almost religious matter or a downright mafia-like setup (case in point, comics such as [[http://emlan.deviantart.com/art/ponykoma-apple-acres-257095158 this ome]] -- which was made ''six years ago'' -- or [[http://doublewbrothers.deviantart.com/art/Apple-571933495 this one]]). With the reveal in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E13ThePerfectPear The Perfect Pear]]" that not only does a Pear-Apple feud indeed exist but that the Apple siblings are ''half-Pear'' themselves, these comics, fics and head canons have become quite funny in hindsight.

* A heroine goes off to find a set of magical gems, but meets a lot of people along the way who want to be her friend. Despite their insistence, the heroine brushes them off. Eventually she finds the magical gems, but only with ThePowerOfFriendship can she unlock their true power and defeat the villain. Yep, the plot of the two-part series premiere is almost exactly like that of ''[[VideoGame/SonicRushSeries Sonic Rush]]'', which was released five years before ''Friendship is Magic'' premiered.

* One segment of VH1's ''[[ILoveTheExties I Love the '80s Strikes Back]]'' had a segment about ''My Little Pony'', with Michael Ian Black talking about wanting the toys as a kid over something more boyish. Well, he's no longer alone thanks to ''[[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship is Magic]]''.

* The conflict of "Crunch the Rockdog" centers around a benevolent, powerful GeniusLoci (the mountain) turning evil when its heart is removed and another giant rock monster being stopped when the heroes successfully insert a heart into it. Make one CompositeCharacter for the 2 villains and another for the group of female heroes on TheQuest, and you have a condensed version of Disney's ''Disney/{{Moana}}''.

* [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic FiM]] already did a ShoutOut to {{Pokemon}} with Twilight's BurningWithAnger moment, but as of PokemonXAndY, Ponyta can learn Ally Switch, a Psychic-type teleportation move, via breeding. There's no way this can be a coincidence...

** In turn, the success of Friendship is Magic probably saved creator driven animation, as it gave Lauren leverage needed to start her own series, and it paved way for other, creator driven series with similar themes like Steven Universe.
