** The [[MilestoneCelebration 100th episode]] "Slice of Life" hinges around the wedding of Cranky and Matilda, two one-shot characters from "A Friend in Deed", but its true focus is virtually every single prominent background character that has appeared in the show, [[AscendedFanon fully canonizing several names and personalities that were established by the fanbase]], which range from: the klutzy, wall-eyed pegasus Derpy Hooves;[[note]]officially named "Muffins" due to a certain controversy surrounding her appearance in "The Last Roundup"[[/note]] Dr. Hooves, a walking ShoutOut to ''Series/DoctorWho''; [[ThoseTwoGuys the recurring duo]] of Lyra and Bon Bon; musicians DJ Pon-3 (a.k.a. Vinyl Scratch) and Octavia, receiving an OddCouple scenario despite only receiving a few seconds of screentime from two completely different episodes; and Steven Magnet, the sea serpent from the pilot, whose name notably comes from a faulty YouTube caption.

*** RealLifeWritesThePlot: The plot was written with Frasier in mind, but thanks to some substance abuse issues, Kelsey Grammer could only make a token appearance. The plot was shifted over to Niles, and some of the dialog are clearly Frasier-isms.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonMagikarpJump'' has this happen to Magikarp. Yes, [[JokeCharacter that Magikarp]], which must be bred and trained generation after generation to jump as high as possible. Ironically, [[MagikarpPower evolving it into a Gyarados]] is something you'd want to ''avoid'' doing here.

** The fifth season has an episode where Jack has disappeared and his new ally, [[HeelFaceTurn Ashi]], searches for him while meeting various characters whom he'd helped in the past.


Added DiffLines:

** Just about each of the {{Muggle}} characters has had a spotlight episode where Steven helps them with some problem; "Crashing Skies/Rising Tides" is particularly notable, since it's framed as [[ConspiracyTheorist Ronaldo]]'s documentary of the weird things that happen in Beach City.
** There are also three flashback episodes focusing on Steven's parents, Greg and Rose, plus a fourth where Steven's a baby and we see the Gems trying to deal with him (which is really them trying to deal with [[PosthumousCharacter Rose being gone now]]).
