Neither Jetta or The Stingers appear in intros either despite becoming major villains in season 2 and 3. The second intro reuses season 1's intro with scenes from the show added in.

** Starting in season 4, they added ''more'' characters. The additions are far more noticeable, and mostly of the (in some cases, rather delayed) ContinuityNod variety. The Mane Six are joined by a [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters small crowd of side characters]], Celestia is now accompanied by her sister Luna, and [[spoiler:[[HeelFaceTurn Discord can be seen inside Fluttershy's cottage]]]].
