* Seven days in a week. Which is, in turn, caused by the presence of seven celestial objects regularly visible from Earth the sun, moon and five planets.
* Seven colours of the rainbow. This is actually a [[AssPull contrivance]] of Sir UsefulNotes/IsaacNewton, a well-known scientist and not-well-known mystic. [[NewerThanTheyThink Observing the spectrum of sunlight produced by his prism]], he convinced himself that the area between blue and purple was a separate colour, indigo, because seven colours would fit his numerology better. The joke of this is, he missed a ''real'' seventh colour: cyan, between green and blue. In Russian language, [[http://blog.properrussian.com/2011/05/what-colors-are-there-in-your-rainbow.html cyan IS addressed as the true seventh color]].

** The common English nickname for the seven Stalinist skyscrapers built in Moscow in late 40es to early 50es: Hotel Ukraine, Hotel Leningradskaya, Ministry of Foreign Affairs main building, Red Gates administrative building, Kotelnicheskaya Embankment building, Kudrinskaya Square building and the Moscow State University main building. Built on a massive scale in a combination of American Art Deco and Russian Baroque styles, they were to represent the power of the country emerging victorious from the ruin of WWII. Ironically, two more were planned, but never built, as Stalin died and Khruschev wasn't a follower of his notions of grandeur. Note that the name isn't used in Russia itself, where these are called simply (Stalin's) Highrises.

* The "Big Seven" - the original members of the Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica - Franchise/{{Superman}}, Franchise/{{Batman}}, Franchise/WonderWoman, Franchise/GreenLantern, ComicBook/TheFlash, ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} and the ComicBook/MartianManhunter. In Creator/GrantMorrison's ''JLA'', the original seven are reunited, except with [[LegacyCharacter Legacy Characters]] for the then-dead GreenLantern and Flash. In the ComicBook/{{New 52}}, [[ComicBook/TeenTitans Cyborg]] is now a founding member rather than the ComicBook/MartianManhunter, but the number is still seven.

According to the [[TheMerch trading cards]], there are seven [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield Elements of Harmony]], instead of the six shown in the show proper.proper, though this appears to have been made in error, especially in light of the two-part episode "Shadow Play" showing that there were no more than six Pillars of Equestria, who played a direct role in creating the Elements of Harmony.
** Starlight Glimmer joined the main cast in Season 6, making the Mane 6 into the Mane 7.
** Similar to the above, with the addition of Sci-Twi to the cast of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'', the main cast of the EG universe is now referred to as the [=HuMane=] 7.
