* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has "The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well", an episode where Rainbow Dash goes on an ego trip after saving some ponies from accidents and being called a hero. Her thunder is stolen by the eponymous masked pony. Mare-Do-Well's costume is a homage to WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck's, and some of her fans are seen carrying signs with a parody of the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' logo on them.
** In the season 4 episode "Power Ponies", Spike and the Mane Six are accidentally pulled into the world of one of Spike's favorite superhero comics, and must protect the city of Maretropolis from [[PrehensileHair the Mane-iac]]. Each member of the Mane Six becomes an {{Expy}} of a famous superhero; Rainbow Dash of ComicBook/TheMightyThor or {{ComicBook/Storm}}, Pinkie Pie of ComicBook/TheFlash, Rarity of ComicBook/GreenLantern, Applejack of ComicBook/WonderWoman (with some ComicBook/{{Batman}} thrown in) and Fluttershy of ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk (yes really). Twilight Sparkle seems to be the odd one out, possibly being either [[ComicBook/XMen Cyclops or Iceman]][[note]]She can shoot a freeze ray from her horn[[/note]]. Spike meanwhile regrettably gets forced into the role of the apparently useless ComicBook/{{Robin}}-like sidekick (but he ends up saving the team by the end of the episode).
