[[foldercontrol]] ---- !!!Memes General [[folder:General]] * "[[YouWillBeAssimilated WELCOME TO THE HERD]]" [[labelnote:explanation]] Typically said whenever somebody reveals they enjoyed the show. Usually comes with the page pic, which is a screenshot from "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E9BridleGossip Bridle Gossip]]".[[/labelnote]] * "[[INeedAFreakingDrink CONFOUND THESE PONIES, THEY DRIVE ME TO DRINK!]]" [[labelnote:explanation]]Usually accompanied by [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/confound_4074.jpg a screenshot]] of a scene in the first episode where Twilight Sparkle pours a bottle of what looks like a an alcoholic drink (but, unfortunately for her, was actually a bottle of hot sauce) into a goblet. They will also drive you to [[TheInsomniac insomnia]], [[LethalChef worms]], [[StalkerWithoutACrush stalking]], and/or [[BoundAndGagged bondage]], among other things. [[http://youtu.be/OZTbycrisCk The line]] itself came from an old Chuck Jones cartoon entitled "TheDoverBoys".[[/labelnote]] * " ...in my hooves, on my head, in my saddlebags... in my mouth!" [[labelnote:explanation]]A piece of in-game dialogue that came from one of TheHub's {{Browser Game}}s called ''[[http://www.hubworld.com/my-little-pony/shows/friendship-is-magic/games/mlp-adventures-in-ponyville Adventures in Ponyville]]''. The line seems innocent but when taken out of context [[AccidentalInnuendo could mean something else]].[[/labelnote]] * SECRET BUTT FUN [[labelnote:explanation]]A meme that doesn't directly relate to ''My Little Pony'', but was inspired instead by a promo for the ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies2010'' series that used to play over the credits and featured a clip of Niblet the sheepdog saying "Secret, but fun!" Amusingly enough, the promo in question and the episode the clip was taken from both ended up on ''The Friendship Express'' DVD.[[/labelnote]] ** Scary butt fun! [[labelnote:explanation]]An offshoot of this meme, inspired by Pipsqueak's line in "Luna Eclipse" about Nightmare Night being "scary, but fun". You'll notice they were /very/ careful about how they had him elocute the line.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://bronibooru.mlponies.com/post/show/2565/ Gyrobowls]]. [[labelnote:explanation]]Thanks to a Gyro Bowl commercial that aired during the first season finale.[[/labelnote]] * "SHOO BE DOO" [[labelnote:explanation]]Originated from the G1 ''My Little Pony'' song "''[[http://youtu.be/P4TedkQP_hM Call Upon the Sea Ponies]]''". A nonsensical comment to anything involving sea ponies usually fan work or discussions. Usually another user will post a follow-up comment with the song's second line: "SHOO SHOO BE DOO".[[/labelnote]] * Not so much a meme about the show as about the fandom: It's become something of a tradition among [[PeripheryDemographic male fans]] to advertise their gender, age, and (sometimes) occupation in the comments section of the episodes posted on [=YouTube=], often immediately followed by stating the name of a favorite pony or a general, "... and I love this show!" ** A common variation is to comment on one of the earlier, but not the first ten, episodes, stating something along the lines of "why am I still watching this?". * I am gonna LOVE and TOLERATE the SHIT outta you. [[labelnote:explanation]]The fandom have found themselves conflicted between hating people who don't like the show and the show's overall message of love and tolerance. Compromises were made. Unfortunately, some Bronies do not practice what they claim to preach and will relentlessly insult anyone who enjoys any older incarnation of ''MyLittlePony'', or anyone who criticizes ''Friendship Is Magic''. The phrase "Love & Tolerate" was eventually [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=875 put]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1059 on]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=2418 an]] [[TheMerch officially licensed shirt]] (and used in the description of another [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1600 shirt]] and [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1672 hoodie]]).[[/labelnote]] ** [[HypocriticalHumor "Love and tolerance" my ass!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Unfortunately, it's also becoming a DiscreditedMeme due to overuse as an [[YourAnswerToEverything answer for everything]].[[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4M5m-V9Zp0 STOP FAPPING TO HORSES]] [[labelnote:explanation]]A series of videos consisting of {{Accidental Innuendo}}s that pokes fun at the abundance of {{Rule 34}} of ''[=FiM=]''.[[/labelnote]] ** I can/can't clop to this. [[labelnote:explanation]]A variation on the "I can/can't fap to this" and/or the "I find this easy/difficult to masturbate to" memes, clopping being the pony equivalent of masturbation.[[/labelnote]] ** [=FiM=] is technically furry [[labelnote:explanation]]Originated as a way of trolling bronies, since, in the loosest definition of the term, they are technically part of the FurryFandom. Now slightly memetic.[[/labelnote]] * Thanks to the infamous "[[IReadItForTheArticles I watch it for the plot]]" [[http://i416.photobucket.com/albums/pp241/C-Money017/My_little_pony_ass.jpg image macro]], "plot" has become a popular euphemism for pony rump.[[hottip:*:Amusingly, as the "The Crystal Empire" two-parter draws to a close Shining Armor demonstrates that canon ponies do in fact have a fine grasp of the actual r-word...by jokingly complaining to Twilight about saving ''his'' again. Although the word had already been used in the lyrics to "Hop, Skip, and Jump."]] ** Pony variations of the DAT ASS meme include DAT PLOT, DAT FLANK, and DAT CUTIE MARK. ** Less popular, but this also makes "plot hole" a valid and stealthy insult. ** And of course, it tends to be combined with Twilight Sparkle's UnfortunateName, leading to jokes about ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' having well developed plot etc. * Fans have copied the HoldYourHippogriffs instances from the show, and created more of their own. In particular, it is almost ''required'' for "anypony", "everypony" and variants to be used amongst fans, even when not referring to the characters. * "My Little [X]" [[labelnote:explanation]]A word play on the main title where the word "pony" is replaced with another kind of animal or creature. Words other than an animal are usually used in crossovers or practically anything.[[/labelnote]] ** "Friendship Is [X]" / "[X] Is Magic" / "My Little [X]: [Y] is [Z]". [[labelnote:explanation]]The show's subtitle led to the creation of this snowclone meme.[[/labelnote]] ** "AND X MAKES IT ALL COMPLETE!" [[labelnote:explanation]]Another minor snowclone, from a line in the opening theme song "And magic makes it all complete".[[/labelnote]] * [[OhMyGods Thank Celestia]] [[CreatorWorship for Lauren Faust]] [[labelnote:explanation]]This is most likely to be the comment of any brony that comes across past generations and actually watches them, or general praise towards Faust for anything, jokingly (?) attaining an almost mythical status.[[/labelnote]] * "Can you do that? Can you explode twice?!" [[labelnote:explanation]]From Spike and Pinkie Pie's speculation on what the "doozy" in "Feeling Pinkie Keen" meant happened to Fluttershy; Spike suggests she might have exploded, and Pinkie follows it up by saying she might have exploded... and then exploded ''again''. Things exploding twice quickly became a RunningGag in the fandom.[[/labelnote]] * And then nothing sexual happened at all. The end. [[labelnote:explanation]]The traditional response to anything that could be taken as a DoubleEntendre within the show.[[/labelnote]] ** And then everything sexual happened. The end. [[labelnote:explanation]]A reaction to the above, claiming that said scenario did indeed lead to a sexual encounter[[/labelnote]] ** In a similar vein to the above, it has become a bit of a RunningGag with the fandom that, whenever a picture is posted with a caption suggesting a rather explicit encounter, the fandom's typical response is to insert an obligatory non-sexual reason for the caption. For example: -->'''Fluttershy (curled up on the ground):''' Please be gentle. I-it is my first time. -->'''User:''' Hard to believe she's never had a hug before. * Truth Flower [[labelnote:explanation]]Near the end of "The Cutie Pox", Zecora plants "seeds of truth" that require spoken truth to blossom. It quickly became popular to edit in such things as ponies admitting their love/sexuality or lack thereof to one another, characters from other media pitching in (such as [[StarWars Vader's]] [[LukeIAmYourFather famous line]] or [[TheLionKing Scar's murder confession]]), or a variant of either with the flower humorously [[BlatantLies failing to blossom]], similar to the Liarjack meme below.[[/labelnote]] ** In the same vein, there's also a [=YouTube=] video of [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Miles Edgeworth]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggJLcPWvsZE cross-examining Pinkie Pie's "testimony"]] from the episode in question. * "They know!" [[labelnote:explanation]]A common reaction to any time the show appears to be making a FandomNod, coincidental or not.[[/labelnote]] * "Bedroom eyes", taking a screenshot while a character is blinking their eyes and catching them half-lidded. The result is an expression that looks coy when taken out of context (as the Internet is often eager to do). ** The phrase had become memetic ''waaay'' before ponies, mind, but the nature of Flash animation's keyframing makes it particularly easy to abuse in this show. * A metric ton of reaction images on the whole, but most notably by far the [[http://derpibooru.org/tags/shrugpony Shrug pony]] Began with an innocent [[http://megasweet.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=120#/d36gbwv Pinkie Pie,]] and quickly exploded. Ponyshrugs may now be found of nearly the entire cast, as well as of original characters, and even ponified versions of characters from other works. * A [[http://derpibooru.org/8545 fancomic]] that was made to look like an official German magazine comic has spawned a couple memes of its own: ** Terry. [[labelnote:explanation]]Scootaloo's name.[[/labelnote]] ** "Around the zebras, never relax!" [[labelnote:explanation]]King Zebra was the evil mastermind. After putting him to prison, Rainbow Dash comments that zebras can never be trusted, referencing black race stereotypes and treatment. The meme itself is a travestation of "Around the blacks, never relax!"[[/labelnote]] ** [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg "All my friends are here. And Applejack is here too."]] * "[X] IS NOW CANON" [[labelnote:explanation]]Due to the fandom's tendency to turn the smallest comment or frame of animation into a massive meme, their tendency to think of many of these memes as canon, and the recent surge in some of these memes actually ''becoming'' canon, it has become popular to take a screencap of an episode, come up with some far-flung fan theory, and end with ''"[X] is now canon"'' where [X] is the topic in question. [[http://chzbronies.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-brony-fus-roh-yay.png Example]].[[/labelnote]] ** "[X] IS NOW CANNON" [[labelnote:explanation]]A play on the above, when something in the show is used as [[AbnormalAmmo a thrown/shot weapon]].[[/labelnote]] * Tara Strong is best pony. [[labelnote:explanation]]Twilight's voice actress has recently taken to shamelessly trolling the Internet via her Twitter. Led to "Twilighticious" further down the page. As such it has '''nothing to do with''' classifying other species as ponies.[[/labelnote]] * Pony hell. [[labelnote:explanation]]Appears to have taken off with [[http://tinyurl.com/6xuzn2l this image,]] frequently referenced for its sheer absurd NarmCharm.[[/labelnote]] ** Is there a ''[[Series/{{Firefly}} special]]'' [[Series/{{Firefly}} pony hell?]] *** Yes. It's reserved for filly molesters, and ponies who neigh at the theater. * "IT WAS CHANGELINGS!" [[labelnote:explanation]]In the second season finale "A Canterlot Wedding", the series introduces changelings, evil [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifters]] who [[EmotionEater feed on love]]. Since then, changelings have been used to explain, a la AncientAliens and conspiracy theories, the various versions of characters appearing within the fandom such as Princess Molestia ([[http://www.furaffinity.net/view/4831255/ which was originally conceptualized as a succubus who copied Princess Celestia's appearance]]) as an alternative to using the explanation that they came from an alternate reality of some sort, characters acting OutOfCharacter within the show or fan work (especially) such as ''Fanfic/{{Cupcakes}}''!Pinkie Pie, and why we see a lot of clones of background ponies in a lot of scenes within the show (or why they seem to have a different characterization and/or voice every time they are put in a role). It has even been used to explain the changes to Derpy Hooves in ''The Last Roundup'' or Luna's behavior in ''Luna Eclipsed''. Basically they are used as an excuse as to why a character or a group of characters doesn't seem and/or feel "right".[[/labelnote]] * The fire incident at Bronycon 2012 (aka "Burnycon 2012" aka "Burning Pony 2012") has been attributed to serveral culprits: ** Discord ** Derpy Hooves ** Spike ** Firecracker Burst ** [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 The Pyro]] ** [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender The Fire Nation]] * ''"Oh look there's a moose!"'' / ''"Oh look a moose!"'' / ''"Look a moose!"'' [[labelnote:explanation]]Originating from the [[http://youtu.be/CnJWqrWJ2zY Everfree North West Voice Actor Panel]], used by the voice actors, often by CathyWeseluck (in Spike's voice), AndreaLibman, and TabithaStGermain as a hilarious distraction or interruption tactic during awkward situations or in the Q&A session (especially when someone asks about [[spoiler:season 3]]) as a response to questions they were not at liberty to answer or simply didn't want to answer seriously. Tabitha actually invoked the phrase being used in such a way. The phrase has been seen being used as a [[https://twitter.com/#!/search/%23lookamoose hashtag]] (#lookamoose) similar to Twilightlicious on Twitter and a [[http://fav.me/d5bo9m7 few]] [[http://fav.me/d5bqust fanart]] referencing the phrase.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://www.welovefine.com/3222-look-a-moose.html Now with official merchandise!]] * ''"SIGN IT!"'' [[labelnote:explanation]]Comes from the 2012 Galacon charity auction where the auctioneer Perrydotto found out the hard way that stuff sold for higher prices after she signed it, including an apple. People on the live stream chat demanded her to sign more things.[[/labelnote]] ** Rich Swiss Bronies [[labelnote:explanation]]Also at the 2012 Galacon charity auction, the only two items to go for four-digit prices were bought by a group of Swiss Bronies. Now it's suspected that they'll bid outrageously high at whatever Brony auction they show up at.[[/labelnote]] * Rabid Idiot Brony [[labelnote:explanation]][[BoomerangBigot Basically a way for bronies to insult other bronies]] [[SelfDeprecation and themselves.]] They can range to anything from a humorous TakeThat to a legitimate critique of the fandom[[/labelnote]] * ''"That's right."'' [[labelnote:explanation]]Originating from the [[http://youtu.be/tp2hrIbQDJI Canterlot Gardens 2012 Voice Actor Panel]], a phrase that Creator/AndrewFrancis has uttered multiple times in the panel with hilarious results. Soon it crept its way into FanArt with [[http://www.derpibooru.org/tags/that-quo-s-right Shining Armor uttering the phrase]].[[/labelnote]] * GAK [[labelnote:explanation]]In a similar vein to "Gyrobowl", toy commercials that have been repeated over and over again (sometimes up to four times in a row) during Creator/TheHub's commercial breaks. They caught the attention of the fanbase during the season 3 premiere and soon its livestreams' chat boxes were flooded with "GAK" messages, various videos involving Gak receive a ton of GAK comments, Gak related entries and hashtags (#GAK) began popping up in various social media websites, [[http://www.derpibooru.org/tags/gak fan arts were being made]], even an [[http://ask-gak-pony.tumblr.com/ Ask Tumblr]]![[/labelnote]] ** "Gak got more screen time than King Sombra!" is a common observation regarding the new star of the show. ** The trend seems to be continuing - it aired twice in a row during the premiere of Too Many Pinkie Pies, and another, similar product known as Floam also aired twice in a row. It remains to be seen if the Gak trend will continue for the rest of the season, or whether Gak vs. Floam wars will start up. In addition, during the premiere of "One Bad Apple", Gak commercials aired four times in a row during one commercial break, then twice during another break, followed by two Floam commercials - ironically enough, Floam was originally known as "Bubble-gak". ** Gak bath/Gak is a product of the Crystal Empire [[labelnote:explanation]]In the episode "Games Ponies Play", Cadance shows the Mane 6 a "crystal mud bath" that looks and acts very much like Gak. Seeing as Gak commercials were prevalent during the Crystal Empire premiere, the product began to be seen as coming from the Crystal Empire[[/labelnote]] * Winter-Tee-Tag (Winter Tea Day) [[labelnote:explanation]]The song "Winter Wrap Up" ended up as "Winter-Ade-Tag" (Winter Farewell Day) in German. However, since there's one extra syllable in the translation which had to be squeezed somewhere, it sounds like either "Winter-D-Tag" ("Winter D-Day") or "Winter-Tee-Tag" ("Winter Tea Day").[[/labelnote]] * That's an academy record! [[labelnote:explanation]]From Season 3 episode "Wonderbolts Academy", where Rainbow Dash and newcomer Lightning Dust proceed to break a slew of Academy records with every scene. The fandom then proceeded to run with it.[[/labelnote]] * "Racist barn!" [[labelnote:explanation]]A {{Mondegreen}} of the song lyric "Raise this barn" in "Apple Family Reunion."[[/labelnote]] ** "Racist porn!" [[labelnote:explanation]]Another {{Mondegreen}} of the same.[[/labelnote]] ** [[Series/SesameStreet One, Two, Three, Four, ah ah ah ah!]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0ly60b42ig "They're throwing pandas at us!"]] [[labelnote:explanation]]There been many who have criticized season 3 for PanderingToTheBase. So much so that someone made video illustrating how ridiculous this was ("[[PandaingToTheAudience Pandas?]] What the--? You mean ''[[PanderingToTheBase Pandering]]''!?") and the fans ran with it. [[https://twitter.com/MMeghanMcCarthy/status/287712360267907072 Even Meghan McCarthy was in on the joke.]][[/labelnote]] * The Gameloft Game. Due to Gameloft's attempt at making money off the bronies, by forcing them to purchase Freemium currency with real money in order to buy certain plot-centric ponies, the main meme here is everyone hurting for gems. Spike starves, Rarity has emotional breakdowns at the thought of no gems, The Mane 6 steal all the jewels from Bejeweled, etc. A few more minor ones spawned from the game as well, most notably Derpy in a cardboard box (see below) and Bic Macintosh, the heaviest known pony, somehow being able to fly with Rarity's gossamer-strand butterfly wings. Oh, and there's also the ridiculous amounts of money spent to cover the ground in roads, so as to prevent parasprites and rocks from spawning. * "[[SincerityMode I believe in M.A. Larson]]."/ "[[SarcasmMode Thanks, M.A. Larson]]!"[[labelnote:explanation]]Slogans of the BrokenBase that emerged upon the reveal that [[spoiler: Twilight Sparkle would become an alicorn]] in the season 3 finale episode. The former group believes the change can work and showed their support for Larson (the episode's writer) in ways like changing their Twitter icons to show a [[http://derpiboo.ru/222510 badge]] of support. The latter group showed their dissent by attaching their slogan to images of famous disasters, sarcastically linking Larson as the cause. The former comes from the viral marketing for ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' while the latter is based on the "Thanks Obama" meme.[[/labelnote]] * "That was a good final episode"[[labelnote:explanation]]The Japanese audience often jokes about the second episode as if it were the season finale using this phrase, due to the main villain being defeated and the characters gaining a new power.[[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:Crossovers]] * [[{{Crossover}} Crossing]] ''Friendship Is Magic'' with anything and everything has become a meme all of its own. ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' (''FanFic/BetterLivingThroughScienceAndPonies'' and plenty of other fics), ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' (endless Gmod works with both casts), ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' ([[Crossovers/{{Touhou}} crossed with everything]] anyway), ''Series/DoctorWho'' (thanks to the popularity of Doctor Whoof), TheSlenderManMythos, ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' (thanks to Twilight Sparkle and Stocking having similar haircuts and color schemes), ''Franchise/StarTrek'' (thanks to John de Lancie aka Q voicing Discord), ''Franchise/MetalGear''[[labelnote:explanation]](thanks to repeated "stealth" sequences in the show: Apple Bloom's sneaking sequence in "Call of the Cutie", Rainbow Dash infiltrating the hospital in "Read It and Weep", Twilight Sparkle leading Spike and Pinkie Pie into the Canterlot Archives ''while looking remarkably like Snake'' in "It's About Time")[[/labelnote]], and '''many''' more. And practically every character ever has been "ponified" at least once. ** Speaking of ''[[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 TF2]]'', the Scout has often been [[CrackPairing comically paired up/shipped]] with Rainbow Dash due to his infamous "Rainbows make me cry" meme. ** Some madman (or in this case,[[DoctorWho mad Dalek]]) went so far as to [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7556482/1/Friends_of_a_Solar_Empire cross it over]] with ''SinsOfASolarEmpire'', of all things. *** [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/09/story-son-of-emperor.html The Napoleonic Wars.]] ** In regards to the ponies on Gmod, there's also EPPALJECK, the name given to [[UncannyValley the creepy beta version]] of the Applejack rag-doll. She is NightmareFuel incarnate, and pretty much the ''Friendship is Magic'' equivalent of Vagineer and Painis Cupcake. ** '''[[NoIndoorVoice Objection!]]''' Why didn't you testify to the fact that there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUDfoZGhLjE three]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s07W4-A7HQw parts]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIvfwJTPK_0 of a four-part crossover]] with [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Phoenix Wright]] are currently available on Website/YouTube? * [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/09/magneto.html MAGNETO]]. [[labelnote:explanation]] From Bronyville Livestream, while the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]" was being aired, an ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' CommercialPopUp featuring {{Magneto}} kept popping up in the lower-right corner of the screen. It was widely considered hilarious and led to, for example, the fans blaming him for ruining the Gala. [[/labelnote]] ** In an "Evolution of a Scene", made by one of the animators on the show (for both season one and two), at the end there is an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJelKyxtXXU animation]] of pony Magneto at the gala, using the pony statue to take down the Wonderbolts while saying "WELCOME TO DIE!!!" ** [[CaptainErsatz Magneighto]] has even become an official CanonForeigner by appearing on TheMerch, specifically [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/867-2043.jpg the]] ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/867-2044.jpg Magnet]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/867-2045.jpg Pony]]'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1282-3899.jpg shirt]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1282-3901.jpg and]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1282-3904.jpg hoodie]] (both of which are sadly no longer available). * ComicBook/SpiderMan's a brony [[labelnote:explanation]]The Spider-Man cartoon from the 60's has already undergone its own MemeticMutation and a crossing of the memes was inevitable. Fans like to Photoshop Spidey into the show, causing almost as much chaos as Pinkie Pie.[[/labelnote]] ** [[{{Deadpool}} So am I!]] * Congratulations! Your Twilight Sparkle has evolved into [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Rapidash]]! [[labelnote:explanation]]When Twilight starts BurningWithAnger in "Feeling Pinkie Keen", she turns into a white unicorn with a flaming mane, which looks suspiciously like [[Characters/PokemonGenerationIFamilies Rapidash]], another white unicorn with a flaming mane.[[/labelnote]] * ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' crossovers have begun to take hold, thanks to Gentaro's goal to befriend everyone in his school. [[http://egophiliac.deviantart.com/art/fourze-luna-256794920 LUNA, GRAB MY POMPADOUR!]] * It has become somewhat popular to mix "Lesson Zero" with ''MajorasMask'', due to how the sun moves. ** Celestia {{Troll}}s Luna when she plays [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eDUzTnv7SM Mario]], but Luna [[ColonyDrop trolls her]] when Celestia plays ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7KbHle-yjQ Majora's Mask]]''... * "What is this fun thou speakest of?" ''[[SpongeBobSquarePants "F" is for friends who do stuff together...]]'' [[labelnote:explanation]]For obvious reasons, Luna asking what fun is in "Luna Eclipsed" is often answered with Spongebob's FUN song.[[/labelnote]] ** IT'S NOT JUST A BOULDER, IT'S A ROCK! [[labelnote:explanation]]This phrase from the "Pizza Delivery" episode has become popular when applied to Rarity to both when she gets {{Mind Rape}}d by Discord and when she finds the geode that earns her cutie mark.[[/labelnote]] ** Are you feeling it now, Mr. Krabs? [[labelnote:explanation]] Relating to the Gak meme below, a common phrase during the commercials was "Are you feeling it?" This led to people being reminded of said Spongebob quote during livestreams, causing it to be stated whenever the Gak commercials showed up.[[/labelnote]] ** In general, if the fandom can connect an ''[=FiM=]'' meme to one from [[Memes/SpongeBobSquarePants SpongeBob]], they will do so. * The Engineer is a Spy! [[labelnote:explanation]]Crossovers between VideoGame/TeamFortress2 and MLP:[=FiM=] are very popular. In these crossovers, Applejack is usually the Engineer and Rarity is usually the Spy. In "Sisterhooves Social", [[spoiler:Rarity disguises herself as Applejack by covering herself in mud and wearing Applejack's hat.]][[/labelnote]] ** Going with the "Princess Cadence is X" meme below, there's [[spoiler:"Cadence is Spy!"]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Queen Chrysalis' plan of [[spoiler:absorbing Shining Armor's love by posing as Cadence would inevitably lead to comparisons to the Spy]][[/labelnote]] *** Naturally, with the release of Source Film Maker, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-aWgyUHLbk several scenes]] from the show have been [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkGwqsrfEeI reenacted]] by VideoGame/TeamFortress2 characters. * [[TheBigLebowski THIS is what happens when you BUCK a STRANGER in the FLANK!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Thanks to the appearance of ponies resembling The Dude, Walter and Donny in a bowling alley during TheTeaser of "The Cutie Pox".[[/labelnote]] ** Nopony bucks with the Jesus. [[labelnote:explanation]]Jesus Quintana, too.[[/labelnote]] * [[{{Steampunk}} My Little Steampunk]] [[labelnote:explanation]]A popular art trend where ''[=FiM=]'' is depicted in the {{steampunk}} visual style.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://th00.deviantart.net/fs71/200H/f/2012/286/8/b/pinkie_pie_spy_by_mrcbleck-d5hqft3.png And then this came along...]] * [[http://fox-feathers.deviantart.com/art/Daft-Pony-211427189 Daft Pony]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Techno-music duo Music/DaftPunk has consistently, through most of their career, appeared wearing helmets fashioned with a robot motif.[[/labelnote]] * X Y is best Y [[labelnote:explanation]]Originally stemming from the LeagueOfLegends fandom, it eventually spread to the bronies. It's typically used as a response to a (normally main/recurring) character from the show exhibiting a one time quirk, such as [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Beatnik Rarity is best Rarity]] or [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero Insane Twilight is best Twilight.]] Then again, some try to classify other species as Y when they are not.[[/labelnote]] ** X Y is worst Y [[labelnote:explanation]]The opposite of the above.[[/labelnote]] * [[StarWars Jedi]] ponies [[labelnote:explanation]]A recent art trend involving ponies wielding lightsabers, which has led to all manner of ''StarWars'' crossovers.[[/labelnote]] * Rainbow Dash is {{Daredevil}} [[labelnote:explanation]]Pinkie Pie called Rainbow a "daredevil" in "Read it and Weep"[[/labelnote]] * [[TheLonelyIsland LIKE A FAUST!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]A play on words melding the already memetic Like A Boss line and the name of the show's creator Creator/LaurenFaust.[[/labelnote]] * A shot of Pinkie Pie waxing to Rainbow Dash about delicious cider looked uncannily like the [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/x-x-everywhere "X, X Everywhere"]] meme. Fans pounced. * Thanks to the Sonic Rainboom, there are videos that use some Gundam [=BGMs=] on a clip of Rainbow Dash doing the Sonic Rainboom in the episode of the same name. Examples: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kWkpoUJsGk Unicorn NT-D mode]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZvH5qdql5A Super Mode]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rz61DixAV1c Hyper Mode]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIW4P8Ti74w Final Mission ~QUANTUM BURST~]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hHkbc8kHMw FIGHT]] being the main examples. ** On the subject of that: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3p6UsXWmaFw Shining Armor and Princess Cadance's Sekiha Love Love Tenkyoken!!!]] also, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u68ps4OUpoM English version]]. * As of Season 3, the new ''[[WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012 Littlest Pet Shop]]'' cartoon airs right after [=MLP FiM=]. The show shares quite a few of MLP's voice actors and other staff (in laymare's terms, Applejack voices the main human girl, Rarity voices a skunk, etc.), and then somepony discovered Zoe Trent happens to look quite a bit like Twilight Sparkle (resulting in the FanNickname [[IncrediblyLamePun Twilight Barkle]]), allowing for [[http://kas92.deviantart.com/art/Encounter-337174811 insane crossover fun]]. * Thanks to the fact that Sweetie Belle's voice actor plays ''{{Minecraft}}'' (and suffered a RageQuit while doing so). There are a few pictures of Sweetie Belle in Minecraft herself (not counting the countless pixel art). It even inspired an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1Z-m5lbqjE animation]]. [[/folder]] [[folder:Website Specific]] * Two of Equestria Daily's most well-known moderators, Cereal Velocity and Sethisto, have a serious thing for unicorns. Cereal firmly believes that "Rarity is the best pony!", while Sethisto firmly believes that "Trixie is the best pony"! The unicorn-love extends to their newest blogger Phoe, who runs the Artist Training Grounds and seems to have a serious crush on Lyra Heartstrings. Pretty much every ATG day has at least a few drawings referencing her obsession with Lyra using that day's theme. And now we have [[http://i55.tinypic.com/6z6j9w.jpg this]]. * *cue happy theme song* [[labelnote:explanation]] A bit of a RunningGag on ThisWiki about the show's tendency to do a MoodWhiplash with the theme song, such as the cliffhanger at the end of the first episode.[[/labelnote]] * Roboshi, Anchors, & yellowtdash are universal constants/fav'd this [[labelnote:explanation]]A Website/{{Ponibooru}} joke, there's a group of users named Roboshi, Anchors, & yellowtdash. who have a tendency to favorite ''everything'' on the site.[[/labelnote]] ** They are typically considered the Website/{{ponibooru}} "mascots", as they are the three most known members of ponibooru. ** They have a tumblr which can be found here. [[http://askponiboorucrufavers.tumblr.com/]] ** Roboshi is credited with being the originator of faving whereas anchors is considered the fastest with a capped record of 2,000+ per day, Yellow is an artist who does the artwork behind the tumblr. * Faustpony loves her Subway sandwiches. [[labelnote:explanation]] During a period where several Rule34 pictures of Lauren Faust's alicorn OC were posted, many pictures were edited with Subway sandwiches replacing... certain body parts. Even now, it is not uncommon to see Lauren's alicorn [[http://derpibooru.org/18130 somehow connected]] to Subway in fanarts or its logo edited into already existing ones.[[/labelnote]] ** And on that note..."Subway -- [[{{Squick}} eat flesh]]." *** It's not just Lauren; many other canon ponies have been shopped into similar fashions, as well. * Ask Tumblrs / "Ask [X]" / "[X] Answers" [[labelnote:explanation]] Originated from {{Homestuck}}, a series of Tumblr art blog/role play accounts where people can ask a particular character in the show as if the characters themselves are answering them through a Tumblr account. You can find a comprehensive list of these blogs [[https://docs.google.com/document/d/1njTTTPv1Of4yHd6igFCNCB9JyXOhH4IHENwnt55zIWc/edit?hl=en_US here]].[[/labelnote]] ** Chubbies/Blobs [[labelnote:explanation]]A recent offshoot of the meme where ponies are replaced with small hamster-like versions of themselves.

It all started [[http://askmlcblobs.tumblr.com/post/14044102408/more-soon here]] when Chubby!Pinkie Pie launched her with her mini-party cannon. Since then she has been seen throughout various Ask Tumblrs.[[/labelnote]] ** [[AskAPony Now with its own TVTropes page!]] * "[[http://derpibooru.org/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sbq=make+it+happen&commit=Go MAKE IT HAPPEN]]" [[labelnote:explanation]]A meme on Ponibooru (now on Derpibooru) where fans suggest potential pony {{crossover}}s.[[/labelnote]] * December 9th is National Child Violence Day! [[labelnote:explanation]]On December 9th, 2011, within a few minutes of each other, Website/{{Ponibooru}} saw postings of 1) APPLE.MOV-style Applejack brutally beating Applebloom and 2) Prince Blueblood braining a young colt with a brick. Someone suggested it was Child Violence Day. Someone else then posted a brony "calendar" listing December 9th as such.[[/labelnote]] * [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]] Ponies [[labelnote:explanation]][[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=189896&page=225 A trend]] on AlternateHistoryDotCom to mix ''My Little Pony'' with Nazis. Communists are also a lesser favorite.[[/labelnote]] ** Speaking of Nazis, Rarity's line "I didn't know you could burn juice!" is frequently [[{{Mondegreen}} misheard]] as "I didn't know you could burn Jews!" (Which gets even more bizarre in light of the Jewish Rarity meme...) *** The fact that whilst she is speaking this line, Rarity's mother is holding her hoof up like a Nazi salute doesn't help matters at all. *** And now Applejack's getting in on the fun. ''Racist barn, racist barn...'' * Lilo~[[labelnote:explanation]]From NicoNicoDouga. This one started from an attempt to turn the title theme into ''katakana'', hence ''My Little Pony''=''Mai.Ritoru.Ponii''. A combination of L-R substitution and further compressing the ''Ritoru'' turned it into ''Lilo'', also the onomatopoeia for licking, which stuck.[[/labelnote]] ** CHIKUBI [[labelnote:explanation]]The last three syllables of "...what friendship could be" can be {{mondegreen}}ed into the Japanese word for "nipple" (as in the body part).[[/labelnote]] ** Aniki. [[labelnote:explanation]]Literally "Big Bro", this is the Japanese fandom's generally accepted nickname for Big Macintosh -- he's one of the few characters who has his own separate nickname in Japanese.[[/labelnote]] ** Air Wife. [[labelnote:explanation]]This one does take some explaining. ''Kuuki wo yomenai'' is Japanese for "can't read the atmosphere", a phrase describing people who speak or act inappropriately, usually in serious situations; as you might expect, the two characters most frequently accused of this are Pinkie and Dash. The phrase can also be shortened to ''kuukiyome'', which is punningly spelled with the kanji for "wife" (''yome''). Somebody noticed that the English translation of ''kuukiyome'' was peculiarly apposite to Rainbow Dash, and hilarity ensued.[[/labelnote]] ** Applejack is an [[{{Hunk}} ikemen]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Many Japanese fans found Applejack to be manly, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff which has lead to her popularity]].[[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:[=YouTube=]]] * Setting clips of ''MLP: [=FiM=]'' to audio of other things, the more HotBlooded or [[RatedMForManly macho]] the better: ''[[Franchise/StarCraft Pony]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJbAT1wzS8U craft 2]]'', ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim VI:]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egrlzkKa6O8 Equestria]]'', ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps Call Of Cutie]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeCODFpKVJ8 Blank Ops]]'', ''[[Franchise/MassEffect Pony]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqpyAlvyP3Y Effect 2]]'', (surely inevitably) ''[[Film/ThreeHundred 300]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTlGYS6rAfA Ponies]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPO4x2Wm0xY Friendship Is Magic]] [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean At World's End]]'', ''[[Film/TheDarkKnight The Rainbow]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sfu_Zn5zkX4 Knight]]'', ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Lord of the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coExS8nrsGY Ponies]]'', ''[[Film/VanHelsing Van]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAJlPXTNe8Q Sparkle]]'', ''[[Film/InglouriousBasterds Inglourious]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bxAyP6uJ4k Ponies]]'', ''[[Film/VForVendetta P for]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egvo47uAtOU Pinketta]]'', ''[[PowerRangers Pony Rangers]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_Ph94Jbc-k Zeo]]'', ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Space]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnBaDMzFSfo Marene]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=za9f1c93FHY Twilight Sparkle is]] [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Still Alive]]'' (and its sequel, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWFwNIN8Cp4&feature=related Nightmare Moon Only]] [[Videogame/{{Portal 2}} Wants You Gone]]''), ''[[EVEOnline My Little Eve:]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_Q6M6pO_2s Spaceships are Magic]]'', ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas Fallout]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4BL4g6NISs New Canterlot]]'', ''[[TheWitcher Pony]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNMBF5czSoA 2 Assasins of Kings]]'', ''[[Literature/ShutterIsland Fluttershy]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dmcB-DrYNw Island]]'', ''[[Film/{{Thor}} So]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLDLtQXGB0I ar]]'', ''[[KillBill KILL SPIKE]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pc_txT_l0TI Vol 1]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4rKxH17GSk Top Wing]],'' ''[[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Tengen Toppa]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3L6MJimBc-s Pony Lagann]]'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHLkTh7YVxU Spike Fights The Power]], ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6Bs22TbtVI Puella]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcU-5-nBZhs Magi]] [[http://youtu.be/jERuovcS0Ec PONY]] [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Magica]]'' (Complete with [[http://youtu.be/qO7OimRIOn4 Wonderbolt-flavored Morning Rescue]]), ''[[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Meet the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-62QJ4Eutc Ponies]]'', ''[[ClashOfTheTitans Clash of the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sw9U-SvxftQ Ponies]]'', ''[[VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi When]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWLGlkaBBoA the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULP-IWvfVBU Ponies]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rheWFVoU_DI Cry]]''... ** ...''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCCNUNDa7jA&feature=youtu.be Pony Confidential]]'' (not to be confused with the episode of similar name), ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMXhEXQSXSw Doctor Pony's]] [[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Sing Along Blog]]'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsCHIKTRYRk Inside]] DungeonsAndDragons, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKs-MHFil0k Pony]] [[LeeroyJenkins Jenkins]], [[KanyeWest Ima let you finish]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pgpazSmWVk Twilight]], ''[[PinkyandtheBrain Pinkie]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCpdDS3L2xs & the Brain]]'', ''[[Film/ThePrestige The]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIAE7qRE7nI Trixige]]'', ''[[Film/BatmanBegins Batmare]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hWzqVvx3Wg Begins]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouvd5gur2_o Spike]] [[VideoGame/DukeNukemForever Nukem Forever]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P3HHpf-fZY My Little]] Film/{{Serenity}}'', ''[[Film/TheHuntForRedOctober The Hunt for]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_r6uIHHTI0w Twilit October]]'', ''[[Film/AClockworkOrange A Clockwork]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qai9jvzli5U Pink -

[[labelnote:explanation]] A commercial for [[http://www.doggiedoogame.com/ this game]] ran during the episode "Sisterhooves Social". This has not escaped the notice of the fans.[[/labelnote]] ** Creepily enough, there was already a video mashing up the theme song and another ad for the same game four months prior to the episode. * "Fanon names are best names." [[labelnote:explanation]]A belief and phrase uttered by those who refuse to accept the Blind bag toy names as a particular background pony's official name. Reasons include their toy names not being confirmed as canon in the show yet due to the fact that the toy department and the animation studio are working separately from each other, their toy designs, especially the character profile cards that came along with the toys, are too different from their supposed show counterparts to be the same pony, and because they just don't like the toy names in general.[[/labelnote]] ** "Toy names are best names." [[labelnote:explanation]]The antithesis of the one above. There are in fact those who took a liking on the toy names but this one is usually invoked by others to {{Troll}} those who believe that the {{Fan Nickname}}s are the only true name.[[/labelnote]] *** Some fans take a [[TakeAThirdOption third option]] and combine the two, making one or the other a surname, a full name, or a nickname. *** Hasbro has officially made it naming policy in the fifth wave of Blind Bags to combine the names for [[AscendedFanon Lyra]] Heartstrings and Trixie [[UnfortunateNames Lulamoon]]. PRAISE BE TO HASBRO!! * Star Swirl the Not so Bearded [[labelnote:explanation]]A fusion of the show's depiction of Star Swirl and [[http://derpibooru.org/164735 Star Swirl]]. This fan-made version of Star Swirl is a mare who possesses the color scheme and cutie mark of the toy Star Swirl and sports the unicorn horn, wizard hat and cape of the show's Star Swirl. [[http://fav.me/d4glutz These]] [[http://fav.me/d4h1te9 are]] [[http://fav.me/d4hr5lf some]] [[http://fav.me/d4iidkq examples]].[[/labelnote]] * Comic shorts in magazines of various languages are a fountain of memes, mostly due to their questionable quality, for example reusing low-quality vectors. [[/folder]] ---- !!!Character Memes [[folder:General]] * It seems that if anypony makes a goofy face on the show, fans will pounce on it. Aside from Derpy Hooves and her FishEyes in the first episode, "Applebuck Season" brings us Rainbow Dash's[[http://derpibooru.org/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sbq=dashface&commit=Go gushing kissy-face]] (along with the accompanying phrase "So ''awesome!''" and the emoticon "'''/)^3^(\'''") and Applejack's various loopy sleep-deprived faces, along with her look of disgust when she mishears the "wheat germ" part of Pinkie Pie's muffin recipe as "wheat worms", and "The Best Night Ever" brings [[http://derpibooru.org/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sbq=flutterrage&commit=Go "Flutterrage"]]. ** As of Season 2, there has been an abundance of UncannyValley-ish expressions whenever a pony's head is looking directly at the camera. Colloquially known as the [[http://derpiboo.ru/search?utf8=✓&sbq=faic&commit=Go FAIC]]. * [X] IS BEST PONY [[labelnote:explanation]]A common way of expressing one's favor for a particular character. The omission of the word "the" is intentional. However, often used when [X] isn't a pony at all (like Spike or Gilda), or is a character from a completely different work (like Magneto) which still isn't a pony.[[/labelnote]] ** "Silly anon, that's not how you spell 'Pinkie Pie!'" [[labelnote:explanation]] Fans naming other ponies as their favorite character tend to attract image macros with this phrase, though there's at least one version where Pinkie admits [[{{Moe}} Fluttershy]] [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer is her favorite, too]].[[/labelnote]] *** Another response is "You misspelled Fluttershy." * A few image macros pop up with some of the characters looking at the viewer asking for [[CuddleBug 'hugs']]. [[CutenessProximity Sometimes it can work]], [[TastesLikeDiabetes when done right]]. * Ponies. In. Socks. [[labelnote:explanation]] An [[http://egophiliac.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d3kx7ku adorable piece of fan art of Luna wearing socks]] has spawned [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/07/drawfriend-stuff-ponies-in-socks.html all kinds of cute fanart]] of Luna or another pony in socks, a [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/07/story-lunas-socks.html fanfic]], and even [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=919 an]] [[TheMerch officially licensed shirt]].[[/labelnote]] ** Sweaters are the new socks. ** Minty liked socks before they were cool. [[labelnote:explanation]]Minty is a [=G3=] pony who collected socks.[[/labelnote]] * "Congratulations, X! You're the new Y!" [[labelnote:explanation]]A play on the original line "Congratulations, Spike! You're the new Rainbow Dash!" Examples include "Congratulations, Pinkie Pie! You're the new Scootaloo!" in response to Pinkie's chicken costume in "Luna Eclipsed" and "Congratulations, Twilight! You're the new Rarity!" in response to Apple Bloom giving Twilight's mane the same style as Rarity's in "The Cutie Pox".[[/labelnote]] * CELESTIA, [[MagnificentBastard YOU MAGNIFICENT MARE!]] ''YOU READ MY LETTERS!'' [[labelnote:explanation]]Celestia's BatmanGambit for snapping Twilight Sparkle out of Discord's spell was simply to send Twilight copies of all the letters she'd written to Celestia in season 1, about what she'd learned about friendship, knowing that even a mindscrewed Twilight Sparkle would not be able to resist the written word. The quote is a reference to ''Film/{{Patton}}''. [[/labelnote]] * Good morning, [X]! [[labelnote:explanation]]A series of pieces by [[http://johnjoseco.deviantart.com/ this artist]] depicting various characters shortly after waking up. Other artists have since joined in on the theme.[[/labelnote]] * "Lock it under a rock, I'm sure it won't get out." [[labelnote:explanation]]Nightmare Moon and Discord, the two {{Big Bad}}s of the series so far, were sealed in the moon and turned into a statue respectively, both by Celestia. Fan speculation for Celestia's reason for using essentially the same imprisonment strategy twice usually has someone suggest this was what she was thinking during both instances. [[/labelnote]] ** Many fans exaggerate this by making it her go-to solution for ''anything'' she doesn't like. * [PONY] found a [VEHICLE] [[labelnote:explanation]] Looping animations of one or more characters driving a vehicle at high speed accompanied with a fitting background music. Usually also includes extra elements happening around them as they drive. It started with [[http://dx11.deviantart.com/art/FLASH-Pinkie-found-a-TransAm-266985369 this one]], which features Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Fluttershy riding a [=TransAm=] down the side of a mountain. The [[http://chaostangent.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/575831.jpg car]] they were driving and the background music (called "[[http://youtu.be/doEwWzMz99A Yellow Line]]") are from an Anime movie called RedLine. Many others have followed in its wake. (A collection can be found [[http://ponies-in-vehicles.deviantart.com/gallery/ here]].)[[/labelnote]] * [[{{Rule 63}} Colt versions]]. [[labelnote:explanation]]Genderbends of the Mane Cast, usually created by lowering the pitch on the original voices. In this incarnation, their names become Butterscotch, Applejack, Elusive, Rainbow Blitz, Bubble Berry, and Dusk Shine (and his number one secretary, Barbara). In case you're confused as to who's who, they are male versions of Fluttershy, Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Twilight Sparkle, and Spike.[[/labelnote]] ** At least [[http://www.youtube.com/user/philsterman10 one]] Youtuber has taken it a step further, not only voice acting as the colts, but changing their dialog to be more male-specific (for example, Elusive designs suits instead of dresses and wants to find a princess rather than a prince charming). Think [[FanFic/SuzumiyaHaruhiNoSeitenkan The Gender-Flip of Haruhi Suzumiya]], only with ponies. *** And this itself has spawned a VA project that seeks to voice the Genderswapped Mane Six to use as a live reading for the story "Fanfic/OnACrossAndArrow" which popularized the Male Cast. The casting call can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsqZJ8TxSGc here]], the accepted voice list can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWs7qmWiEkU here]], a demo of the accepted voices can be heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0DYX1IYe2s here]] and the first episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ggSrYShCk0 here]]. ** This has started slowly to spread to the other background ponies/characters.

Most of these can be found [[http://mammoh.deviantart.com/gallery/ here]] and [[http://tomdantherock.deviantart.com/gallery/ here]].[[/labelnote]] ** The trend originated from a popular Vinyl Scratch gif that came from [[http://fav.me/d486hs2 here]] (the links below the image provides [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v488/Valcron/TAVI.png a comic version]], [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v488/Valcron/TurnTabletemplate.png a template for the frames]], [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v488/Valcron/ScratchonRecord-1.gif the animated gif]], [[http://youtu.be/fz1rfOn4IAU a Youtube video]], and [[http://fav.me/d4dz6y0 a vectorized version]]). * [X] Cannon/Bazooka/Launcher [[labelnote:explanation]]An art trend of ponies wielding large shoulder mounted cannons/bazookas/launchers. Color scheme of the cannon and its ammunition depends on its wielder. Originated from one of a series of ''[=FiM=]'' themed weapons created by Flamingo1986. One of which was called the "[[http://fav.me/d3gluka Pinkie Pie Launcher]]". Other artists later edited Pinkie Pie herself holding the launcher[[http://fav.me/d3hk22m]] and it soon spread to other characters as well.[[/labelnote]] ** Party Cannon. [[labelnote:explanation]]Shown in the episode "Sweet and Elite" where Pinkie Pie shows it off as to explain how she can set up parties so quickly. Makes a return in "A Canterlot Wedding, Part 2".[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sob1t-iUCmE Bass Cannon.]] * Wet manes. [[labelnote:explanation]]Fanart showing characters with their manes drenched and hanging down, inspired by a scene with Rarity in "Sisterhooves Social". One such fanart piece, of Silver Spoon as a grown mare, eventually went on to be [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=517431964964140 used]] in Creator/{{Gameloft}}'s ''VideoGame/MyLittlePony'' game.[[/labelnote]] * Baby ponies. [[labelnote:explanation]]In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E8TheMysteriousMareDoWell The Mysterious Mare Do Well]]", one of Rainbow Dash's heroic deeds was saving a baby pony from falling off a cliff. While (older-looking) babies had previously appeared in the SpinOffBabies [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrtUFeDB7gg toy commercial]] and toys, this was the first time that any appeared in the show itself. With in-show reference for a baby at hand, [[http://baby-ponys.deviantart.com/ the fandom had a field day.]] And now that "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyfriendshipIsMagicS2E12BabyCakes Baby Cakes]]" has aired, they're having another.[[/labelnote]] * Smooth Cheerilee / Spike Criminal [[labelnote:explanation]]A fair number of people have noticed how the NiceHat Cheerilee gives Spike in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess Secret of My Excess]]" resembles that worn by MichaelJackson in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_D3VFfhvs4&ob=av2n the video for "Smooth Criminal"]]. This has resulted in a [[http://www.canterlot.com/gallery/image/1152-cheerilee-smooth-criminal/ few]] [[http://crabmeatstick.deviantart.com/art/Smooth-Cheerilee-273464522 pieces]] [[http://paradigmpizza.deviantart.com/art/Smooth-Criminal-273284320 of art]] depicting either Cheerilee or Spike wearing an outfit that resembles Michael's Moonwalker ensemble and performing the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smooth_Criminal#Anti-gravity_lean anti-gravity lean]].[[/labelnote]] * Fluffy ponies [[labelnote:explanation]]A trending art meme where ponies are drawn with thicker and fluffier fur.[[/labelnote]] ** Fluffle Puff [[labelnote:explanation]][[http://fav.me/d4l5y4r The OC]] that started (or at least popularized) the whole fluffy pony meme. Later became a recurring character in an OriginalFlavour crossover [[AskAPony Ask Tumblr]] of DanVs called ''[[http://dan-vs-fim.tumblr.com/ "Dan Vs. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"]]'' and starred in her own mini-game called ''[[http://fav.me/d4rcb9h "GO FAST"]]''.[[/labelnote]] ** Fluffy pony drowns [[labelnote:explanation]] Fanart on [[ImageBoards a certain image board]] has inspired a flood of mini-fics about adorable but [[TooDumbToLive accident-prone]] pet fluffy ponies.[[/labelnote]] *** Fluffy pony abuse [[labelnote:explanation]]Said image board has since spawned numerous mini-fics involving rather ''disturbingly'' detailed slaughter and mistreatment of fluffy ponies, usually in the form of DisproportionateRetribution for the afformentioned stupidity. The most common form of abuse is the "Sorry Stick", an impromptu spanking device made from a thin rod of wood.[[/labelnote]] *** Now, let it be known that such stories has caused a bit of CreatorBacklash from Mixermike662, the creator of Fluffle Puff and the man who popularized the Fluffy Ponies concept to begin with. And by "Creator Backlash", ''they caused him to disown the fandom.'' *** Many of the fluffy pony abuse artists must have intentionally been drawing parallels to the development of [[WaddlingHead yukkuris]] as a meme in ''Memes/{{Touhou}}'' fandom. ** Fuzzy ponies [[labelnote:explanation]]A "follow-up" of sort to fluffy ponies, the original post involved Hasbro Biotoys inventing a successor species - much more durable, obedient, and intellligent than the fluffies. While the original post seriously toted their superiority, most posts involving fuzzy ponies discuss how ''boring'' they are in comparison to fluffy ponies, and how badly they would fail.[[/labelnote]] * Beep beep. I'm a cloud. [[labelnote:explanation]]A [[http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/8176/690522020artist3amr120c.png picture]] of Rainbow Dash pretending to be a cloud, which [[http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/637/scootbeep.png has]] [[http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/8144/beepbeepimstuck.png inspired]] [[http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/3241/imamuffinbydavrockistd4.png several]] [[http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/4741/trixiebeep.png sequels]].[[/labelnote]] * "[CHARACTER NAME]''licious''" [[labelnote:explanation]]With the popularity of ''Twilightlicious'', derivatives began popping up such as ''[[http://youtu.be/Xs9-N16CkNs Flutterlicious]]'', ''[[http://youtu.be/9Y8-EgHM18k Derpalicious]]'', ''[[http://youtu.be/uvRjFZJcTdQ Lyralicious]]'' and ''[[http://youtu.be/YW_tnVZltGQ Rarilicious]]''[[/labelnote]] * Ponytails. [[labelnote:explanation]]The manes of characters are made in a ponytail style. Possibly made simply because of how silly it looks when you [[VisualPun think about it.]][[/labelnote]] * Ponies drinking milkshakes through a straw, ever since the episode ''Bad Seed'' featured Sweetie Bell drinking one and [[CatSmile looking rather adorable]]. * Zodiac/horoscope ponies[[labelnote:explaination]]The Hub posted a [[https://www.facebook.com/hubtvnetwork/app_193183930806288 horoscope generator]] on its facebook with twelve original ponies representing the various signs of the horoscope. The fandom has fleshed all of them out further well beyond the original pictures.[[/labelnote]] * Sliding ponies[[labelnote:explanation]]A series of simple animations of many of the characters sliding into a box (think Maru the Cat). Has expanded greatly with takeoffs of that.[[/labelnote]] * Crotchboobs.[[labelnote:explanation]]Horses in real life have nipples close to their groin. Fan artists have taken this into account.[[/labelnote]] * >Implying.[[labelnote:explanation]]With several episodes in season 3 introducing the motion of "air quotes", GIFs of these with the tag ">Implying" have been made. Fan versions have also come about, though typically based on one with Lyra, leading to ">Implyra" and variants.[[/labelnote]] [[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:The Mane Cast]] [[AC:General]] [[AC:Twlight Sparkle]] * [[SpoofAesop Parodies of letters to Princess Celestia]], involving [[AccidentalAesop Accidental Aesops]] or snarky comments relevant to the episode or the characters. ---> (re: "Stare Master") "Dear Princess Celestia, I learned today that you do [[{{Determinator}} not]] [[PrecisionFStrike f*ck]] [[MamaBear with]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes Fluttershy]], ever. [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle Your faithful student, Twilight Sparkle."]] ** Less common is the habit of capping off any "TL;DR" or lengthy and irrelevant rant with "Your Faithful Student, Twilight Sparkle." * Twilight's attack of PowerIncontinence during her flashback in "Cutie Mark Chronicles" has been compared, by various fans, to [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Dr. Manhattan]], [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Dark Phoenix]], [[VideoGame/{{Starcraft}} the Protoss Archon]], [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender the Avatar State]], and/or [[Franchise/{{Highlander}} the Quickening]]. * The image from "Winter Wrap Up" of Twilight Sparkle hiding in a tree from snakes led to photoshopping Twilight hanging onto... pretty much anything.

"Yo, Twilight, I'm really happy for you, and I'ma let you finish, but Applejack is the best pony of all time!" * Oh God, Twilight's about to miss a deadline! RUN! [[labelnote:explanation]] During the Season 2 episode ''Lesson Zero'', Twilight Sparkle being the organization freak she is, becomes [[SanitySlippage increasingly unstable]] the further into the day she goes when a letter to Princess Celestia is due for sending. She eventually comes to the conclusion that if she can't find a friend's problem to fix as a friend, then she would have to [[NiceJobBreakingItHero create one]]. [[http://i.imgur.com/WxwFS.jpg It doesn't end well.]][[/labelnote]] * "Hi, ''giirrllss!''" [[labelnote:explanation]]Twilight Sparkle's creepy greeting to the CMC in "Lesson Zero"[[/labelnote]] ** The face she made immediately before also gave rise to a lot of exploitable images. Not that the episode isn't already full of weird faces otherwise. * Twilight Snapple / Twilight Psycho [[labelnote:explanation]]In "Lesson Zero", Twilight begins to lose her grip on sanity, complete with creepy facial expressions, eventually coming to the point that it looks almost as if she's stalking the CMC.[[/labelnote]] * My Little Pet Twilight Sparkle [[labelnote:explanation]]A meme in a similar fashion to "Lyra wants hands" (See "Background Pony Memes"). It's about Twilight Sparkle wanting to be qualified as Rainbow Dash's pet. She's usually depicted with a leash to symbolize her "dedication". It came from [[http://youtu.be/i9hpX1SfPiQ a line]] in the episode "May the Best Pet Win" where Rainbow Dash explains to Twilight Sparkle why she can never be qualified to be her pet.

Cue the talented fandom...[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/03/lets-get-twilightilicious-trending.html The saga continues]] as the voice actress and her followers attempt to make "Twilightlicious" trending on Twitter. ** Given the reactions (both ways) from her Twitters (typically, stating something along the lines of "Here's a picture of me naked", attached to a tasteful photo of one of the clothes-less characters she voices), Tara's even called out these acts as [[{{Troll}} Twolling]]. ** TheMerch now includes an official ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/2050-twilightlicious.html Twilightlicious]]'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/2078-twilightlicious.html T-shirt]]. * The teaser clip for "It's About Time", which featured a [[MyFutureSelfAndMe time-traveling Twilight]] wearing a [[FutureBadass tattered jumpsuit and eyepatch with a disheveled mane]], has inspired a LOT of crossovers with various AfterTheEnd or BadFuture works such as ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' and ''Film/EscapeFromNewYork''. ** Also with ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', as she looks uncannily similar to Naked Snake. * Recognition of Twilight Sparkle's [[TaraStrong voice actress]] in the video game LollipopChainsaw led to numerous people referencing her in Youtube comments and fanart such as [[http://bridgetn88.deviantart.com/art/Lollipop-Chainsaw-feat-Twilight-Sparkle-289026822 this one]] depicting her as the main character. * Twilight is now a machine gun [[labelnote:explanation]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5enoTvMd-o Inspired by this scene]] of Pinkie Pie using Twilight as a machine gun.[[/labelnote]] * Sweatervest [[labelnote:explanation]]Whenever Twilight is anthropomorphised, she would almost always be depicted wearing a sweatervest.[[/labelnote]] * The image of Filly Twilight looking up from a book to her brother from the "BBBFF" song has sparked alot of pictures such as [[http://bronies.memebase.com/2012/05/02/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-brony-totally-worth-it/ this]] * Twilight Sparkle is a melting pot of friendship. From a line Tara Strong had said herself by popular request, this did not amuse a certain, [[Radio/TrueCapitalist Texan, capitalist]] who originated the line. * [[http://derpiboo.ru/tags/special-eyes Twilight's Special Eyes]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Based on a [[http://derpiboo.ru/147949?scope=scpe25dd8e0d7259f3590838dbd98ffdde858dd7dbe8 funny frame]] from the Season 3 premiere, where for a split second Twilight gains angry, googly eyes.[[/labelnote]] * Twilight is a murderer. [[labelnote:explanation]]In the episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E3TooManyPinkiePies "Too Many Pinkie Pies"]], Twilight dispatches the Pinkie clones the moment they look away from a wall of paint. The fact that she does this without hesitation as the clones practically explode into magical energy, and she said there was a risk of the same thing happening to the original Pinkie, led to cries of people calling her a murderer or "committing Pinkiecide". Debate still rages..[[/labelnote]]. * Twilight's new form. [[labelnote:explanation]]A two-panel exploitable taken from "Magical Mystery Cure" as the Mane Five react in shock for the first time to Twilight's new form. The second panel, in-show showing Twilight with her new wings, is altered to be everything from Rule 63 Twilight, Princess Big Macintosh, God from ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'', GabeNewell, and so on.[[/labelnote]] * "Everything is going to be fine." [[labelnote:explanation]]Following her change into an alicorn and subsequent coronation in "Magical Mystery Cure", Twilight says that "Everything is going to be fine". Given the BrokenBase reaction to Alicorn Twilight, several have taken this phrase, typically with the image of Alicorn Twilight, onto photos of great diasters, like the Hindenberg, noting how (to them) the show is TemptingFate.[[/labelnote]] * Twilight cat/twicat [[labelnote:explanation]] One user pointed out a scene in "Spike At Your Service" where Twilight seems to act like a cat thus leading to pictures of twilight acting like a cat and/or saying nya/meow [[/labelnote]] * Twiface [[labelnote:explanation]] In one scene in "Swarm of the Century", Twilight puts on a smug grin while doing an AsideGlance, [[http://derpiboo.ru/301243?scope=scpe8631dd2a77cc1e395723c6ba4aef15d90a5decd3 as seen here.]] [[/labelnote]] * [[http://derpiboo.ru/search?utf8=✓&sbq=twiscream&commit=Go Twiscream]] [[labelnote:explanation]]In one of the shots in the trailer for Equestria Girls, Twilight is seen having a FreakOut about her new human form.

When corrupted by Discord in "The Return of Harmony", however, she constantly lies, while doing the linked face. Has spawned a crapton of image macros; the captions usually border on SuspiciouslySpecificDenial.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84PZbL_-jjU Who's a Silly Pony?]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk5PbfpBJUI Who is, you is, Applejack!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Applejack is one of the rare characters in the series who comes from a previous series, in this case Generation 1 My Little Pony. G1 Applejack was a klutz to the extreme. In a UK My Little Pony audiobook, Applejack was introduced with this song to showcase her clumsy nature. Fans have since taken the song and attached it to scenes where Friendship Is Magic Applejack is being shown as acting weird.[[/labelnote]] * In ''The Return Of Harmony: Part II'', the shot of a smug Applejack bringing up Rarity's brief fling with "Tom" has been used by fans for various clever one-liners in image macros for different ways to one-up Rarity. * A minor, but interesting one: fans asking, "[[AlternateUniverseFic What if she decided to embrace sophistication when]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles staying with the Oranges in Manehattan?]]" The result: [[http://derpibooru.org/tags/orangejack Orangejack.]] ** Followed up when the episode "Too many Pinkie Pies" featured Twilight Sparkle testing out an "Apple to Orange" spell, but always being interrupted and hitting something other than the apple. [[http://bloody-vikings.deviantart.com/art/Apples-to-Oranges-338700813 The inevitable result.]] * Applejack's Episode. [[labelnote:explanation]]Applejack has had one feature episode since the beginning of the show, and a split ticket with a couple episodes, most commonly with Rarity. When the DVD ''The Friendship Express'' was revealed to contain an episode titled "The Last Roundup", the fans went nuts. When the episode's synopsis was released, revealing that Applejack was missing and the manes had to find her, the fans were less impressed. When the episode ''after'' was confirmed to be a truly Apple-Family-centric episode, the fans perked up again, and when Applejack actually appeared throughout all of ''The Last Roundup'' their ire disappeared completely.[[/labelnote]] ** And then the episode was remembered not for Applejack, but for a certain fan favorite background character appearing throughout the opener, and actually talking. At least the following episode mostly focused on AJ, though in the context of her family and, again, being partially upstaged by the characters of the week. * "Forget you, I can eat ALL these apples!" [[labelnote:explanation]]At a panel at the January 2012 Bronycon, fans convinced guest speaker Ashleigh Ball (the voice of Applejack) to quote the fan animation APPLE.MOV[[/labelnote]] * Appletroll [[labelnote:explanation]] At the end of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E15TheSuperSpeedyCiderSqueezy6000 "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000"]], Applejack proudly proclaims that she did not learn anything from the episode in her letter to Celestia. Since that means she never had a reason to send a letter, this led to people claiming that she was trolling Celestia.

More apple fwitter?" [[labelnote:explanation]] The Season 3 episode "Apple Family Reunion" has a flashback scene of a baby Applejack saying this line in a [[CutenessProximity ridiculously adorable]] way.[[/labelnote]] * Applejack is the new Twilight Sparkle. [[labelnote:explanation]] One insightful viewer pointed out that, in season 3, Applejack is the ONLY member of the Mane 6 to have a speaking role in EVERY episode. Not even Twilight Sparkle has done so, leading to [[http://cheezburger.com/6928133888 this meme.]] Given the fact that in season 2, Applejack had very little screen time and dialogue compared to the rest of the Mane 6, it was a remarkable turnaround.[[/labelnote]] * The buck's a hand?! [[labelnote:explanation]] During the song "What My Cutie Mark is Telling Me" in the season 3 finale, Applejack says the line, "Could y'all give me a ''hand'' here and help me fix this mess?"

While the Cutie Mark Crusaders brush it off as "Pinkie Pie being [[CloudCuckoolander Pinkie Pie]]", fans have joked that somehow, someway, Pinkie Pie really ''is'' responsible for the creation/foundation of Equestria. Others just joke that Pinkie would end her rendition of the Equestrian CreationMyth with "...and that's how I got my cutie mark!"[[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wu3j3Qh7sTE "The life of Pinkie Pie in 6 seconds"]] [[labelnote:explanation]] The Lonely Island's "Like a Boss" used to describe Pinkie Pie's life.

Much like ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' fans and ''Squad Broken'', mentioning "cupcakes" without any context is likely to make some fans suffer horrible flashbacks.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxfz8-ZmRu4 IT'S BEEN ANIMATED.]] *** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mP7qgHWrHNA&feature=watch_response TWICE.]] **** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43AuJjuxqAw Thrice, now from one of Hasbro's animators!]] ** Psycho Pinkie is usually referred to as Pinkamena, if not her full name. ** Cupcakes also seems to be a term for when Pinkie Pie gets furious, in a tamer use of it. * Francis Pie hates X [[labelnote:explanation]]Pinkie Pie's discorded version frequently expressed hate for anything related to the scene, much like Francis from Left4Dead[[/labelnote]]. * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oggEFjAJeXo Chocolate rain.]] [[labelnote:explanation]]In the Season 2 premiere, one of the signs of Discord's escape is chocolate rain from cotton-candy clouds.

Do me!" (and she's unimpressed with the impersonation that follows). This led to the changeling in question being nicknamed Doomie by the fandom, and inspired a series of four-panel comics where Doomie transforms into Pinkie, but not exactly the [[Fanfic/{{Cupcakes}} Pinkie]] [[MyLittlePonyG3 she's]] [[WesternAnimation/{{MAD}} thinking]] [[PinkyAndTheBrain of]].[[/labelnote]] * Workout Pinkie [[labelnote:explanation]] Which is Pinkie in her aerobics clothes from "A Friend In Deed" is used on many random pictures and captions.

[[labelnote:explanation]] At the start of Pinkie Pie's stage show in "Over A Barrel", Rainbow Dash's wings are folded, but when PP appears in her show-girl outfit, RD's wings are spread. While it's easily seen as [[AccidentalInnuendo a small animation error or just a reaction of shock]], [[LesYay those who have a different idea]] on [[http://derpibooru.org/tags/wingboner what emotions wings express]] see this scene as [[SomethingElseAlsoRises a bit more telling]].

[[labelnote:explanation]]''The'' most common source of HurtComfortFic for this fandom is fanfic in which Rainbow Dash breaks her wings (which actually happens in the Canadian live show, though not onstage). It's reached the point where Equestria Daily has jokingly banned this sort of fic outright.[[/labelnote]] ** Zig-zagged during Season 2. At first her "Atomic Rainboom" scene (see above) essentially nullified all of them. Later during "May the Best Pet Win!", Dash gets the tip of one wing pinned under a boulder and later has to have it bandaged up after being freed. This either gave the fics some credibility again, or killed them off for good, depending on how you look at it (her wings ''aren't'' immune to damage, but she only needed a bandage after a ''boulder'' fell on one of them). In "Read it and Weep," she does in fact break a wing, giving the fics credibility again, but again she walks it off in under a week, and while she certainly wasn't happy about the incident she was more grumpy than "[[HurtComfortFic traumatized]]". * Rainbow Dash dyes her mane [[labelnote:explanation]]A fan art trend where Rainbow Dash is drawn dying her mane rainbow using either [[http://fav.me/d3enmqv a can of rainbow paint]] or [[http://fav.me/d4c8oc6 hair dye]] or [[http://fav.me/d3d30d0 bathing]] in a [[http://fav.me/d4fkplh pool of rainbow]] such as the ones seen on the episode "Sonic Rainboom".[[/labelnote]]. That this is possible is supported in the Magic Duel episode, wherein [[spoiler: Fluttershy is disguised as Rainbow Dash to make it appear that Twilight had successfully executed a Duplication spell.]] ** Even a ''fanfic'' was [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/05/story-terrible-secret.html written]] about it. ** A second fanfic followed, though [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7184406/1/Dashs_Secret it's not just Dash's natural color]] that's being hidden... * Fans are trying to make a meme out of Rainbow's face in "May the Best Pet Win!"

But it was promptly {{Jossed}} by Creator/LaurenFaust [[https://twitter.com/aweleczka/status/239527694583353344 here]] on Twitter.[[/labelnote]] * Rainbow Dash is Iceman. [[labelnote:explanation]] From [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]], where Dash finds herself in the unusual role of being the voice of reason to a hot-headed showoff pony who keeps breaking flight safety regulations to make herself look more awesome. Which, since the entire episode is a huge homage to ''Film/TopGun'', means that she's the Iceman to Lightning Dust's Maverick.[[/labelnote]] * Rainbow Dash bounces a ball.[[labelnote:explanation]] In "Read It and Weep" while Rainbow Dash is confined to a hospital bed there's a brief scene of her bouncing a ball against a wall.

[[labelnote:explanation]] Fluttershy's DeathGlare in "Stare Master" earned some infamy, with some fans joking she has [[OnePiece Haki]] or [[Anime/CodeGeass a Geass]], and contributes to her MemeticBadass reputation[[/labelnote]]. ** YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE ME! [[labelnote:explanation]]Fluttershy's FreakOut during "The Best Night Ever", the same scene that inspired the "Flutterage" meme, became memetic for being completely unexpected and ''terrifying''. [[/labelnote]] * Replacing the ''CSIMiami'' "[[BigYes YEEAAAAAHH!]]" with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLTZctTG6cE Fluttershy's]] "[[FlatJoy Yay]]" from the ColdOpen of "Sonic Rainboom". * Fluttertree. [[labelnote:explanation]] Stems from a conversation in "Over a Barrel" in which Pinkie Pie takes Rainbow Dash's sarcastic remark about Fluttershy being a tree at face value. Combined with Fluttershy's remark "I'd like to be a tree", it sparked a lot of half-joking debate as to whether or not Fluttershy is, in fact, a tree, or simply the pony equivalent of a furry. It also inspired a number of pictures of Fluttershy as a tree, often combined with the phrase "Leaf-ing the dream!" Much later, the ColdOpening of "Hurricane Fluttershy" has a scene in which Rainbow Dash addresses a tree as Fluttershy and said tree turns out to be Fluttershy trying to hide using a tree costume. Even later, [=WeLoveFine=] came out with [[TheMerch merchandise]] depicting Fluttershy as a tree or with a tree.[[/labelnote]] * In the episode "Green isn't Your Color", a shot of a magazine cover featuring a mopey-looking Fluttershy with black streaks in her hair inspired a brief burst of "[[http://www.ponibooru.org/post/list/emoshy/1 Emoshy]]" art. * Fluttershy is [[BlatantLies very loud.]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Most videos on youtube featuring Fluttershy (usually videos lasting less then 10 seconds) doing something that makes quiet noises (screaming, for example) will almost always have people complaining about how loud the video is, despite the truth being the opposite.[[/labelnote]] ** Tying into that, Fluttershy as the [[Franchise/TheElderScrolls Dovahkin]] is ''incredibly'' common. ** Alternatively, she's [[BlatantLies violent]]. ** Fluttershy is [[BlatantLies weak and helpless]]. [[labelnote:explanation]]In ''The Return of Harmony Part 1'', Discord attempts to get Fluttershy riled up in order to discord her, but Fluttershy instead fullheartedly and quietly agrees with everything he's saying about her, including that she's "weak and helpless", much to the hilarity of the fans who have seen her face dragons and manticores alike, [[StaringDownCthulhu staring down a]] [[DeadlyGaze cockatrice]], and many other awesome deeds. Many insist that she has [[HoistByHisOwnPetard trolled]] [[{{Troll}} Discord]]. A few videos on Youtube have Fluttershy saying she's weak and helpless, followed by a montage of her Moments of Awesome.[[/labelnote]] * Fightershy / Flutterninja / Flutterzangief. [[labelnote:explanation]]Fluttershy wrestling with a bear in "Lesson Zero" (even if she was actually giving it a chiropractic massage). It didn't take long for the ''StreetFighter'' and ''MortalKombat'' inspired [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/72192?search=fluttershy images]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKdHiYxTZn8 videos]] to come out[[/labelnote]] * Fluttershy's HiddenDepths. [[labelnote:explanation]] In the episode "Suited For Success" Fluttershy [[MotorMouth rather quickly]] points out the flaws in Rarity's dress (before quickly reverting to her usual timid self), despite not showing any obvious knowledge about dressmaking previously. This has been reused in fanfics, showing Fluttershy's HiddenDepths about pretty much everything she does, before going shy again and saying something along the lines of "But, you know, however you do it is fine..."[[/labelnote]] * Fluttershy crying over Philomena's DisneyDeath in "A Bird in the Hoof" inspired a string of pics in which she is seen watching a sad or touching scene (like the death of Disney/{{Bambi}}'s mother, the death of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Aerith]], or the ending of ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''). A less popular version is where she actually ''smiles'', basically watching anything to make her happy instead (or for those with a cruel sense of humor, something that starts out looking innocent, like the movie adaptation of ''WatershipDown'' or an episode of ''HappyTreeFriends''). ** Later expanded to manipulated images depicting ''any'' character reacting differently to ''anything'', such as Twilight enjoying an educational program like ''BillNyeTheScienceGuy'', Applejack being disgusted by a B-movie or reality TV , Rainbow Dash watching an action movie, Spike watching Anime/Sentai/ giant robot or monster shows, or Derpy Hooves watching something downright surreal. ** There briefly existed a variant with Pinkie Pie having phone calls with other characters, such as [[WesternAnimation/TheCritic Jay Sherman]], [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV Niko Bellic]] or [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Captain Picard]]. * Flutterjuice/Juiceboxshy. [[labelnote:explanation]]Originated in [[http://SorcerusHorserus.deviantart.com/art/Dash-Academy-2-Hot-Flank-Part4-257655358 this page]] of Webcomic/DashAcademy, a fancomic, and popularized by [[http://askfluttershyandpinkiepie.tumblr.com/ this Ask Tumblr]].

Stems from Rarity's description of Fluttershy's attitude in ''"Putting Your Hoof Down"''[[/labelnote]] * Hootershy / Flutterack [[labelnote:explanation]]Anthropomorphised Fluttershy art tends to depict her with an abundant bustline, for any number of reasons ranging from an interpretation of her motherly instincts and {{Moe}} personality to AuthorAppeal.[[/labelnote]] ** Related to the above, Fluttersweater [[labelnote:explanation]]Anthro-Fluttershy tends to be a SweaterGirl.[[/labelnote]] * Futashy [[labelnote:explanation]]Drawing Fluttershy as a hermaphrodite.[[/labelnote]] * Fluttershy is an honorary Japanese. [[labelnote:explanation]]When fansubbed versions of the show began to show up on NicoNicoDouga, Japanese fans decided that Fluttershy's similarity to the YamatoNadeshiko archetype meant she was honorarily Japanese. Although mostly localized to Japan, a few articles and blogs have brought the meme to the attention of Western fans.[[/labelnote]] * Fluttershy confirmed for [[WorstWhateverEver worst pegasus]].[[labelnote:explanation]]Fluttershy's AcrophobicBird tendencies, especially when [[ForgotICouldFly she had to be saved from falling]] by Cloudchaser (another Pegasus) in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltsAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]].[[/labelnote]] * Bad Advice Fluttershy[[labelnote:explanation]]Coming from the [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW comic series]], one panel in the third issue has Fluttershy leaning out of a rounded frame, providing explanation what is going on off-panel. Stripping away the spoken text leaves a [[http://derpibooru.org/236811 perfect exploitable]] for Fluttershy to give bad advice, such as "[[http://derpibooru.org/236852 Always use Comic Sans]]".[[/labelnote]] * "Nature is so fascinating"[[labelnote:explanation]]Also from the comic, an exploitable of a weird or eerie natural thing, followed by the comic panel of Fluttershy looking on in awe, saying "Nature is so fascinating".[[/labelnote]] * Kyubeyshy[[labelnote:explanation]]When it was announced that EmiriKatou would voice Fluttershy in the Japanese dub, it started a wave of fanart depicting Fluttershy as Kyubey from Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica, which was one of the characters that Emiri Katou previously voiced.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Rarity]] * Dumb Rock! [[labelnote:explanation]] Said by Filly Rarity in "The Cutie Mark Chronicles" when her horn leads her to an apparently-ordinary rock.[[/labelnote]] * No one must ever know that I am part marshmallow! [[labelnote:explanation]] A shot of Rarity reaching towards the camera from "A Dog and Pony Show", with her hooves drawn in a way that they resemble marshmallows, inspired a string of jokes about Rarity actually being a marshmallow, much like "Fluttertree" and "Scootachicken". This, in turn, led to jokes about Rarity's sister Sweetie Belle being a marshmallow too. "Marshmallow pony" was eventually used by [[TheMerch WeLoveFine]] to refer to Rarity in the online description and tags of their ''Rarity Nouveau'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1646 art print]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1647 and]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1648 shirt]].[[/labelnote]] * THIIIIIS IIIIIIS WHIIIIINIIIIINNG!

It even has its own [[http://raritybeingdraggedtoherdestiny.tumblr.com/ Ask Tumblr blog]]. [[/labelnote]] * [[CargoShip Rarity x Tom OTP!]] [[labelnote:explanation]] In part 2 of the Season 2 premiere, Rarity continues to haul the rock around that Discord made her think was a ginormous diamond and named it Tom. [[/labelnote]] ** Dan the boulder. [[labelnote:explanation]] Prior to part two, the boulder was dubbed "Dan" by fans due to Youtube captions, the same way Steven Magnet was named. When part two aired and Rarity named him Tom, people compromised and decided his name was Tom Dan, and made him a MemeticBadass for good measure. [[/labelnote]] ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EiPy2woAZE4 "Look Out! Here Comes Tom!"]] [[labelnote:explanation]] A scene with Tom hurled out of a window resulted in jokes of him being replaced with anyone else named Tom.]] [[/labelnote]] ** After "Too Many Pinkie Pies", some fans said Tom was the "Guardian of the Mirror" after a large boulder was used to block the path to the Mirror Pool. * is the... WORST... ''POSSIBLE''...''' ''THING!'' ''' [[labelnote:explanation]] Rarity being a hammy drama queen in "Lesson Zero"]] [[/labelnote]] * "I'll show you something worthy of Canterlot!" [[labelnote:explanation]] From "Sweet and Elite", after Rarity gets ridiculed by some upper-class ponies for being "country", she retreats to her suite at Canterlot castle, says this line, and whips up a design for Twilight's new dress. It inspired a meme where Rarity says her line, and is shown to draw something silly, then react to it with delight or disgust as appropriate. [[/labelnote]] * Rarity is Jewish. [[labelnote:explanation]] Amongst the many drawings of ponies doing Christmas activities, the fans have decided - for unclear reasons, but possibly based on either the accent used by [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E5SisterhoovesSocial their mother]] or an old ReligiousStereotype about tailors or jewelers being Jewish - to have Rarity and Sweetie Belle celebrate Hanukkah. One Equestria Daily banner even shows them playing dreidel with Pinkie Pie and losing heavily.]] [[/labelnote]] * Rarity's newspaper reaction. [[labelnote:explanation]] A three panel image exploitable, based on Rarity reading the school paper in "Ponyville Confidential". The top and bottom shots are of Rarity reading the paper intently, and a shocked reaction, but the order may change to justify the joke around the middle panel. Also has been used as "implied facehoof" reaction images, as at one point, Rarity's look while holding the newspaper is similar to TommyLeeJones' character in NoCountryForOldMen as blunt non-vocal criticism of a stupid idea. [[/labelnote]] * Bend over [[labelnote:explanation]]Rarity being depicted as a MemeticMolester often telling others to "bend over".[[/labelnote]] * Anaface Rarity. [[labelnote:explanation]] A picture of Rarity scoring a 0/10 on the Anaface web program plus a negative reaction has become popular. Showing other characters (such as Derpy, Tom or Pinkie) who get a higher score on the program in addition to her reaction has become mildly memetic. [[/labelnote]] * Rarity vs. a [[GiantEnemyCrab Giant Crab.]] [[labelnote:explanation]] Similar to the Trixie eating pinecones thing, a Deviantart user asked for several pictures of Rarity fighting a giant crab. He got them. [[/labelnote]] [[AC:Spike]] * Tailboner. [[labelnote:explanation]]The same thing as a wingboner, but for Spike's tail.[[/labelnote]] ** Pictures of Spike using his tail for digging from "A Dog And Pony Show" with the caption "[[Series/{{Community}} I have the weirdest boner right now]]." * Spike is quickly becoming identified as a stoner. [[labelnote:explanation]]Similarly to the Bedroom Eyes meme above, the RunningJoke of someone pausing a clip of an episode and seeing Spike with an expression of someone with cannabinoid intoxication. That, and his portrayal in later WebAnimation/PonyDotMov episodes.[[/labelnote]] * Lame Pickup Line Spike.

You're the new Rainbow Dash!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]In part 2 of the Season 2 premiere, Rainbow Dash is missing and thus they have no Element of Loyalty. Twilight, who is stressed out and in a hurry, gives Spike the Element of Loyalty necklace and says he's the "new Rainbow Dash".[[/labelnote]] ** "That won't end well..." [[labelnote:explanation]]Right after Twilight makes Spike the new Rainbow Dash, he's afraid of what will happen to him once Rainbow Dash finds out. This has led to various images of what would happen when [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/63085 Rainbow Dash finally does confront him on the matter.]][[/labelnote]] ** Pega-Spike [[labelnote:explanation]]Spike transformed into a Pegasus has appeared in many fanarts and at least one fanfic, starting from back in season 1. More recent fanart naturally depicts his Pegasus version as a recolor of Rainbow Dash, thanks to the previous meme.[[/labelnote]] * And then Spike died. [[labelnote:explanation]]Early on in Luna Eclipsed, Rainbow Dash scares Pinkie, Spike and some fillies with her lightning cloud. Spike promptly passes out, and is carried off by Twilight; because of his shaking and drooling, nearly every online chat about the episode will invariably include a "Spike died." comment.[[/labelnote]] * Spike is the new main character. [[labelnote:explanation]]Until "Sweet and Elite", Spike had appeared in more episodes of Season 2 than Twilight Sparkle, who was missing from "Sisterhooves Social", and was only one of two characters (the other, humorously enough, being Applejack) to appear in every season 2 episode up to that point. This meme has since become heavily ironic as Spike hasn't appeared on the show reqularly since "Hearth's Warming Eve."[[/labelnote]] * Spike is unemployed. [[labelnote:explanation]] The response to Spike becoming more and more OutOfFocus as the show goes on, mainly considering that he no longer writes letters to Princess Celestia, and the characters just dictate the moral of the episode in a narrative voice instead. [[/labelnote]] * SPIKE WANT! [[labelnote:explanation]]In "Secret of My Excess", Spike goes into a rapid growth spurt and displays the infamous dragon greed. As he gets bigger, his speech gradually devolves into yelling [[HulkSpeak "SPIKE WANT!"]].[[/labelnote]] ** Run! It's Spikezilla! [[labelnote:explanation]]Also from "Secret of My Excess", Spike's form at his peak size drew a lot of comparisons to the American version of ''Film/{{Godzilla}}''.[[/labelnote]] * Spike's Business Card [[labelnote:explanation]]From "Spike At Your Service", Spike holds up a card containing his personal Dragon Code, making it a perfect exploitable.[[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:The Cutie Mark Crusaders]] [[AC:General]] * Photoshopping fake cutie marks onto the Cutie Mark Crusaders. (Bonus points if it's the cutie marks belonging to the previous generation versions of the Crusaders.) * The Sex Pit [[labelnote:explanation]]The Crusaders' solution to the problem they caused in ''Hearts and Hooves Day'' involved getting Big Macintosh to fall into a deep pit they dug with a matress at the bottom. The fun here comes in the form of shopping in other characters and/or altering the Crusaders' reactions. The fact that Cheerilee called it a feather bed only gave the meme more credibility when the word feather was implied to be a PrecisionFStrike in Putting Your Hoof Down.[[/labelnote]] * Crusader [=4koma/Reaction=] Crusaders [[labelnote:explanation]]Also from ''Hearts and Hooves Day'', the Crusader's faces when they're hiding in a bush [[http://img.ponibooru.org/_images/31a77fcb71dfde351154b541be329923/130372%20-%20apple_bloom%20Cutie_Mark_Crusaders%20gaijin_4koma%20hearts_and_hooves_day%20Reaction_guys%20scootaloo%20Sweetie_Belle.png bears more than a passing resemblance to the Gaijin 4koma/Reaction Guys meme]].[[/labelnote]] * '''CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS, (ADD SOMETHING,) YAY!!!!!'''[[labelnote:explanation]]Their normal catchphrase. However, fans make up something to add between "Cutie Mark Crusaders" & "yay!"[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Apple Bloom]] * ONE. DAY. [[labelnote:explanation]]in "Sisterhooves Social", Apple Bloom lets Sweetie Belle borrow Applejack for the contest, but makes sure she understands it's only temporary. This line [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1230 made it onto]] an [[TheMerch officially licensed shirt]] in less than a week after the episode's premiere.[[/labelnote]] * Applecopter. [[labelnote:explanation]]In "The Cutie Pox", one of Apple Bloom's loop-de-hoop tricks involves spinning the hoop around her tail fast enough that she takes off like a helicopter.[[/labelnote]] * "[[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/My_Sister%27s_Speaking_in_x/1 My Sister's Speaking [X]!]]" [[labelnote:explanation]]A snowclone spawned from another scene in "The Cutie Pox", where Apple Bloom gets a fleur-de-lis cutie mark that causes her to compulsively speak French, to which a baffled and horrified Applejack remarks "My sister's speakin' Fancy!" This scene inspired a few comics where Apple Bloom is forced to speak in other "languages", such as Chinese, British English, "Internet", Wingdings, and [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Daedric]].[[/labelnote]] ** Gangsta Bloom [[labelnote:explanation]]The fleur-de-lis is also the gang sign of [[SaintsRow the 3rd Street Saints]]. This has not passed the fans by.[[/labelnote]] * Apple Dictionary [[labelnote:explanation]]Like Sweetie Belle before her, in ''Family Appreciation Day'', it's Apple Bloom's turn to be called a dictionary following her lamentations about Granny Smith representing her family on the eponymous day.[[/labelnote]] * Bunny Bloom [[labelnote:explanation]]Apple Bloom wears a rabbit suit in Family Appreciation Day. The fans think it makes her [[RuleOfCute extremely]] [[{{Moe}} cute]].[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Scootaloo]] * Scootabuse [[labelnote:explanation]]When asked whether Scootaloo is Rainbow Dash's little sister Creator/LaurenFaust said no, stating that Dash would not be a good big sister. Some fans took this a little too far, which resulted in various fanarts depicting Rainbow Dash physically abusing Scootaloo, some more gruesome than others. On the other hand, [[http://mixermike622.deviantart.com/art/You-re-The-Best-244020273 this comic]] strongly suggests that Rainbow Dash doesn't necesarily need to be [[AbusiveParents the one doing the abusing.]] It also, however, leads us right into...[[/labelnote]] ** Scootalove [[labelnote:explanation]]Formed as a reaction to Scootabuse, consisting of ''heartwarming'' fanart and fanfics about Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo. This has, in turn, led to such things as "[=ScootaBDSM=]" and other bizarre images.[[/labelnote]] ** Not really ''confirmed'' {{Jossed}}, but the ending to "Sleepless in Ponyville" seems to imply that Scootalove is the canon relationship between the two as of now. * Scootachicken [[labelnote:explanation]]Apple Bloom calling Scootaloo a chicken in "Stare Master" inspired a lot of jokes about Scootaloo being a ''literal'' chicken, and even led to [[TheMerch officially licensed shirts]] featuring [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1194-3428.jpg Scootaloo]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1194-3429.jpg as]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1196-3433.jpg a]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1196-3434.jpg chick]] and [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1503 Scootaloo with a chicken (and Winona)]]. This meme is sometimes combined with "Scootabuse", depicting Kentucky Fried Scootaloo and Scootaloo-flavored ramen noodles.[[/labelnote]] ** Pinkie Pie dressing up as a chicken for Nightmare Night spawned a few more jokes about this. ** Scootadodo [[labelnote:explanation]]And ''then'' jokes emerged of Scootaloo being a dodo, after a clip from the season 2 premiere was posted in which Sweetie Belle calls Scootaloo a dodo.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Sweetie Belle]] * Sweetieabuse. [[labelnote:explanation]]In much the same way as Scootabuse, Sweetie Belle isn't immune to being treated badly by her sister. Various fanart depicts her as actually being an illegitimate child of Rarity's by whom she's very embarrassed. She's also depicted as being a [[TheDitz ditz]] and living in a cupboard under the stairs.[[/labelnote]] ** Sweetie Poo. [[labelnote:explanation]]A far more [[ToiletHumor immature]] and [[NauseaFuel gross]] variation of Sweetie abuse. In addition to being a [[TheDitz ditz]], Sweetie is presented as being incontinent, and uncontrollably defecating in large quantities.[[/labelnote]] * Sweetie Derelle. [[labelnote:explanation]]Another unflattering depiction of Sweetie Belle being an extremely loud annoying sibling - specifically, a picture of her shouting a long string of capit[[InterruptingMeme AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA]]l A's is used to flag threads with {{NSFW}} content. Naturally, it's been photoshopped to look like other characters.[[/labelnote]] * Sweetie Dictionary [[labelnote:explanation]]Not long after the season 2 premiere aired, Scootaloo's remark "What are you, a dictionary?" inspired pictures of Sweetie Belle as a dictionary.[[/labelnote]] * Dumb Fabric! [[labelnote:explanation]]Said by Sweetie Belle in "The Show Stoppers" when a roll of fabric gets away from her. Made into [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=736 a]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=737 shirt]] & [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1285 hoodie]].[[/labelnote]] * "I, uh, really like her mane..." in response to a fan's OC pony (most of which aren't really that great, due to Sturgeon's Law). The quote comes from Sweetie Belle's original reaction in being forcefully offered a raggedy old doll named "Smarty Pants" by a crazy Twilight. ** Has since expanded to a response to just about anything. * It's becoming popular to post various images inside Sweetie Belle's thought bubble in "Sisterhooves Social". * Sweetie Slide/Scootie Belle [[labelnote:explanation]]A scene from Sisterhooves Social where Sweetie [[http://crunchnugget.deviantart.com/art/Scootie-Belle-267558044 slides across the floor]] using her hind legs. [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1219 Has]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1343 subsequently]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1802 appeared]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=2432 on]] [[TheMerch officially licensed apparel]].[[/labelnote]] * Sweetie Bot [[labelnote:explanation]]As re-imagined in the AbridgedSeries "FriendshipIsWitchcraft", Sweetie Belle is actually a robot, given a robotic voice (think a cuter version of {{Glados}}), and has questionable means to an end.[[/labelnote]] * "OH COME ON!" [[labelnote:explanation]]Sweetie Belle's reaction in "Hearts & Hooves Day" when Cheerilee and Big Macintosh fail to hit it off the first time, used in response to an unexpected result of a highly anticipated event (such as the VideoGame/MassEffect3 ending).[[/labelnote]] * Squeaky Belle [[labelnote:explanation]]A FanNickname due to Sweetie Belle's voice cracking and abruptly changes pitch a lot.[[/labelnote]] * Golden Sweetie Belle / Sweetie Gold [[labelnote:explanation]] Many have made note of Sweetie Belle's pretty appearance due to her being covered with golden luster dust in "One Bad Apple". She has been associated with [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Bender]] in a strange mashup with the [[FriendshipIsWitchcraft Sweetie Bot]] meme, as well as [[Franchise/StarWars C-3P0]].[[/labelnote]] * Milkshake Sweetie Belle [[labelnote:explanation]]During the Babs Seed song, Sweetie Belle is seen drinking from a Milkshake while bobbing with the song. Its cuteness is reminiscent of the Juicebox/Fluttershy meme.[[/labelnote]] * {{Squee}}tie Belle, after a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-UNcUozz3I certain little moment]] in "Just For Sidekicks." * Sweetie's Note[[labelnote:explanation]]An exploitable based on [[http://derpibooru.org/262333 this comic]], though with several variations, including panel reordering and altering the last one into various expressions for Sweetie Belle.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwmxUV7Nris Thrackerzod!]] [[labelnote:explanation]] A parody version of Sweetie Bell from the Mentally Advanced Series abridged videos as well as Rainbow Dash Presents (both made by the same creators). In said parodies, Sweetie Bell is re-imagined as an EdritchAbomination named "Thrackerzod" who tries to blend in with "normal" ponies.[[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:The Princesses]] [[AC:General]] * [[http://fav.me/d3jam2z BLEEEEH ALFALFA MONSTER]] [[labelnote:explanation]]From a [[http://fav.me/d3htjng popular fan-art]] of Celestia and Luna as fillies. The meme itself began when a member of Know Your Meme known as Tropers/CCharmanderK, also a known Troper, used the image as his avatar.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Celestia]] * Princess Trollestia [[labelnote:explanation]]Depicting Celestia [[RonTheDeathEater as a prankster who annoys and messes with her subjects for the lulz]] is so common it got its own FanNickname.[[/labelnote]] ** TO THE MOON! [[labelnote:explanation]]A recurring joke whenever a Pony thinks they'll be punished by Celestia, or adding it on like it's a threat to a bird like Philomena, all due to the fact [[NeverLiveItDown she banished Luna to the moon]]. It's also considered her go-to solution when things don't work for her.[[/labelnote]] *** Taken UpToEleven in the fanimation ''FriendshipIsMagicBitch'', which also spawned a few more memes: **** "Do you like bananas? So, you're a bitch that likes bananas? Well, that's great. Cause you 'bout to GO bananas! On the MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONAAAAAAAA! [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch BEE-YETCH!]]" [[labelnote:explanation]]in said fanimation, Princess Celestia asks the ponies who come to complain about her rule if they like bananas, [[DisproportionateRetribution then sends them all to the moon regardless of their answer.]] Including [[TheWoobie her sister.]] The line "do you like MMMMMMM bananas?" has since made it onto an official [[TheMerch shirt]], ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/2117-do-you-like-bananas.html Do You]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/2129-do-you-like-bananas.html Like Bananas?]]''[[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:extra note]]She also likes to get her bananas from Publix, a grocery store chain centered in Florida that had been featured in previous cartoons by the animator.[[/labelnote]] *** There's also a variant which involves being "banished to season 2". ** Princess Molestia [[labelnote:explanation]]Slightly less common is [[MemeticMolester depicting Celestia as acting HIGHLY inappropriate]] with Twilight, Luna, and others. She even got [[http://askprincessmolestia.tumblr.com/ her own "ask" blog]].[[/labelnote]] ** Princess Momlestia [[labelnote:explanation]]Recent trend on derpibooru, depicting Celestia hugging other ponies and acting toward them like a mother, usually with Twilight, but. Other pictures also show just what happens when her subjects are threatened, especially Twilight. [[MamaBear The aftermath is ''not'' pretty.]] [[/labelnote]] *** And on a similar note, "Your Momjesty!" [[labelnote:explanation]]A number of more comedic fics have Twilight accidentally referring to Celestia in a manner implying she served as a surrogate mother. * "No one mare should have all that power!" [[labelnote:explanation]]Snowclone of "No one man should have all that power" (the refrain from KanyeWest's also-memetic "Power"), related to expressing doubt in Celestia's rule. Likely introduced by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Tjb14VoWjg this fan video's intro]] - there's also a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8luNcDxQ0Uc side-by-side comparison]] with the original video, for the curious.[[/labelnote]] * Cakelestia [[labelnote:explanation]]"Ponyville Confidential" shows a picture of Celestia gorging herself on cake, and "MMMystery on the Friendship Express" shows her licking her lips while looking expectantly at a cake. After those two episode, it became common for fanart and fanfic to depict cake as Celestia's TrademarkFavoriteFood.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Luna]] * "The fun has been doubled!" [[labelnote:explanation]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lowij-5Q5Xg Luna's exclamation]] while playing games in ''Luna Eclipsed'' lead to snowclones almost immediately.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etaIaVgTmAg&feature=related Ha ha! The butt fun has been doubled!]] * [[CargoShip Luna/Abacus]] {{OTP}} [[labelnote:explanation]]After the fanfiction ''FanFic/{{Progress}}'' depicted Luna as obsessed with an abacus for various reasons, it became common for other stories to mention Luna's extreme attachment to [[ICallItVera "Abby"]], even in stories that romantically pair her with someone else.[[/labelnote]] * On September 29, 2011, a [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/65311 leaked picture of an unfinished scene]] from the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed Luna Eclipsed]]", the one with the return of [[EnsembleDarkhorse Princess Luna]], showed Luna with a sinister grin on her face and a cloak. This single picture caused some ponies to claim that Luna had joined TheDarkSide[[note]]...[[Music/PinkFloyd of the Moon]][[/note]] and is now a [[StarWars Sith Lord]]. ** Along the same lines, the leaked episode synopsis rekindled interest in the [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse "Where My Woona!?"]] meme, seeing as she's finally making an appearance in the show proper since the whole Nightmare Moon incident. * '''"[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0WDNnxInFM THIS IS THE TRADITIONAL ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE!!!]]"''' [[labelnote:explanation]]Luna's explanation in ''Luna Eclipsed'' for why she speaks in such a [[NoIndoorVoice loud booming voice]]. Enough to make '''[[DisgaeaHourOfDarkness CAPTAIN GORDON DEFEEEEEENDER OF EARTH]]''' green with envy.[[/labelnote]] ** Others use YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe for the Traditional Royal Canterlot Voice (or combine both aspects). ** '''PRINCESS CAPSLOCK'''/CANTERLOCK [[labelnote:explanation]]The Royal Canterlot Voice has been described as her talking with capslock on, and various jokes about capslock were re-purposed (such as "The Royal Canterlot Voice is cruise control for cool").[[/labelnote]] * Canon Luna is the best Luna. [[labelnote:explanation]]Said as a form of praise to Luna's first canonical appearance in "Luna Eclipsed", after all the fan work and speculation that had surrounded her canon personality for the whole year prior to that episode.[[/labelnote]] ** Luna killed my fanfics! [[labelnote:explanation]]The direct opposite of the above.[[/labelnote]] ** Redo the fanon! [[labelnote:explanation]]A call to all fans to redo their fanwork to match Canon Luna. Some, like the comic that started the "BLEEEEH ALFALFA MONSTER" meme, have already been redone in the [[http://egophiliac.deviantart.com/art/we-are-not-amused-264700507 Traditional Royal Canterlot Voice]]. The Luna tumblr accounts also immediately adapted it.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/74687 Trollestia did it!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Fans who really did not expect Luna's behavior in said episode already found a target to jokingly blame it on.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/luna_ducreux/1 Luna Ducreux]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Spawned from the Joseph Ducreux meme where famous catch phrases and memes are translated into Old English. This variation replaces Ducreux with Luna herself. Phrases used are often brony memes such as phrases from the show or other brony memes.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bW-xCFqxLQ&feature=related Luna]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvqmNNeGTVU&feature=related Dance]] [[labelnote:explanation]]A gif of happy young Luna dancing to moon-related music on the moon, spawned by an attempt to explain what she did for 1000 years.[[/labelnote]] * Luna is friggen' useless. [[labelnote:explanation]]Luna was conspicuously absent during the battle sequence from [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding]], despite even Celestia engaging in combat. Many a fan took note, and wondered just what she was [[http://derpiboo.ru/17063 doing at the time]].[[/labelnote]] ** Counterpoint: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrpXtoPauXY Luna]] [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/luna_punch/1 PUNCH!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]A few frames of Luna rearing back threateningly got edited into her decking Chrysalis as an alternate ending to A Canterlot Wedding. This being the Internet, she soon moved on to punching various other characters from different shows.[[/labelnote]] * Gamer Luna. [[labelnote:explanation]]Depicting Luna as an avid video game player.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://askgamerluna.tumblr.com/ It even has a Tumblr!]] * From the season 2 finale, "Hello everypony. Did I miss anything?" ** The above is typically used whenever someone knowingly joins a conversation after some semi-interesting event has happened, considering what she missed in those two episodes. -->'''User A:''' Man, I'm glad we finally got rid of that troll. -->'''User B:''' Hello everypony. Did I miss anything? -->'''User A:''' Did you miss anything!? You missed a troll raid! --> And so on. * "You're my favorite princess!" [[labelnote:explanation]]Pipsqueak says this to Luna during the episode ''Luna Eclipsed''. The sentence has gained popularity. Though typically used to refer to Luna, "X is my favorite princess" is occasionally used to describe Celestia, Cadance or even other characters that are sometimes not princesses at all (just like "X is best pony" is occasionally used for non-ponies).[[/labelnote]] * "LUNA IS BEST FREDDY KRUEGER!"[[labelnote:explanation:]]After "Sleepless in Ponyville" established that part of Luna's repertoire included visiting people in their dreams, comments were made comparing Luna to a benevolent version of Freddie Krueger (in that she is protecting people in their dreams instead of killing them)[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Cadence/[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Cadance]]]] * [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/cadence%20guessing_game/1 Princess Cadence is X]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Based on the season 2 finale's second synopsis ''[[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/03/episode-synopsis-announcement-canterlot.html "Twilight discovers a dark secret about Cadence right before the wedding"]]''. It's an exploitable meme which contains a picture of Princess Cadence to the left, an equal sign in the middle, and a random picture to the right, implying that the other picture is somehow related to Cadence and/or has something to do with her dark secret.[[/labelnote]] * Just roll with it. [[labelnote:explanation]]After a massive buildup over months and months of wondering how the show would introduce a new winged unicorn to the show's pantheon, it wasn't that big a deal during and after the show aired.[[/labelnote]] * Throwing Cadance/Epic wife tossing. [[labelnote:explanation]]During the climax of the Season 3 premiere, Shining Armor "helps" Cadance take off to fly and retrieve the Crystal Heart [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsmJ81SXE4M by throwing her at it.]] [[https://i.chzbgr.com/completestore/12/11/16/5hEJ4OdCs0iodu1wlOJMZA2.gif Fans had a field day with it.]][[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:Villains]] [[AC:General]] * [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/faster_cheaper/1 Faster, cheaper!]] [[labelnote:explanation]][[ConArtist The Flim-Flam Brothers]] shut off the quality control of their machine to make a profit, resulting in a series of minicomics where they turn something into a [[TakeThat cheap, mass-produced alternative]].[[/labelnote]] * Swiss Cheese Legs [[labelnote:explanation]]The holes in the legs of Queen Chrysalis and the other changelings look like... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin yeah.]][[/labelnote]] ** Queen Swissalis [[labelnote:explanation]]Ditto.[[/labelnote]] * "X is a Changeling!" [[labelnote:explanation]] A RunningGag among the fandom for when more than one of the same background pony appeared at the same time. [[/labelnote]] * An image of a pig wearing Diamond Tiara's tiara after the latter falls into a mud pit in "One Bad Apple" has led to representation of DT by a pig wearing a tiara. [[AC:Trixie]] * Trixie wears her heart on her cloak. [[labelnote:explanation]]Almost every shipping fic with Trixie has one of the Mane Cast salvage and repair her hat and cloak as a romantic gesture. The hat and cloak themselves are usually described as either an inheritance from an adored family member, or things Trixie made herself with her magic when she first started her show, and almost always have some sentimental value for Trixie, regardless if the fic is shipping or not.[[/labelnote]] ** Rarity is a [[TheFashionista fashionista]] cupid. [[labelnote:explanation]]Tied in with the meme directly above, if the character Trixie is being shipped with isn't Rarity, the one she is being shipped with will have talked Rarity into fixing the hat and cloak for them to give to Trixie.[[/labelnote]] * Trixie's favorite food is pinecones. [[labelnote:explanation]]A brony by the name of Bronymike spent quite a lot of time requesting art of Trixie eating pinecones. [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/37651 He]] [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/38577 got]] [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/37988 it.]][[/labelnote]] * [[http://youtu.be/fXazWMZBRB0 TrixieYes.mp4]] [[labelnote:explanation]][[http://fav.me/d4fw3x1 A looping animation]] of Trixie dancing to the song "[[http://youtu.be/I25YWZWLLEU Fancy Footwork]]" with the words "WHAT NOW?" on top. It's based on a Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} meme known as "[[http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=wh4t+now&aq=f WH4T NOW?]]".[[/labelnote]] * Trixie doesn't trust wheels. [[labelnote:explanation]]In "Magic Duel", Trixie makes Snips and Snails pull her personal chariot; when they ask why the chariot lacks wheels, she (likely due WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity induced by the Alicorn Amulet, or because she was DrunkOnTheDarkSide and lying to make their lives harder for spite) answers "The Great and Powerful Trixie doesn't trust wheels. Now pull faster!" This led quite a few bronies to create art of Trixie demonstrating her distrust, or of whatever incident from Trixie's past that caused her to distrust wheels.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Discord]] * Discord dancing on Twilight's head seems to have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG35VKg62GA swiftly]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_yDBWBTAHw become]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OftxXnd4yK8 one]]. (And now, people can [[http://www.discodiscord.com make their own.]]) It didn't take long for a piece of fananimation showing the real Discord doing that dance, either. Then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrUxaSaJFXc this.]] * [=DisQord=]. [[labelnote:explanation]]Discord was voiced by John de Lancie, who also voiced Q in various ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series, and the character was heavily inspired by Q as well, resulting in this FanNickname. ''Star Trek''/''MLP'' mashups were also inevitable following the first episode.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://youtu.be/45vW4-B-yRY Chocolate milk of glass]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Discord filling a glass with chocolate milk, and then drinking the glass.[[/labelnote]] ** Exploding chocolate milk of glass / [[VideoGame/{{Portal2}} Combustible Chocolate Milk]] [[labelnote:explanation]]From the same scene, after Discord drinks the glass, he throws away the cylinder of chocolate milk, which [[MadeOfExplodium explodes offscreen]].[[/labelnote]] [[AC:King Sombra]] * Lord Donut Steel[[labelnote:Explanation]]Sombra's fan-given nickname before his official name was revealed. A play on "Do not steal", a phrase often mockingly used in relation to Original Characters (since many fans have complained King Sombra looks like a bad fanmade character).[[/labelnote]] ** Has also been extended into Lord Donut Steel Of The Sombrero Republic. * King Sombrero[[labelnote:Explanation]]A play on his name, "Sombra".[[/labelnote]] * Sombra X stairs = OTP[[labelnote:Explanation]]King Sombra had levels upon levels of stairs in his castle, leading some to wonder whether he had a peculiar love for stairs in general.[[/labelnote]] ** Alternately, King Sombra ''loves'' [[http://cheezburger.com/6762610688 Slinkies.]] * King Sombra can't speak properly.[[labelnote:Explanation]]King Sombra had very few speaking lines in the episode, and his peculiar voice makes them difficult to decipher.[[/labelnote]] * GAK[[labelnote:Explanation]]Recurring commercials for a toy named Gak during the Season 3 premiere (and by "recurring", we mean "at one point airing four times in a row") led to King Sombra being memetically associated with this toy and the word GAK in general.[[/labelnote]] ** GAK got more screentime than King Sombra[[labelnote:Explanation]]A joke contrasting the prevalence of the commercial with to the meager screentime the villain received.[[/labelnote]] * "Still a better villain than Sombra."[[labelnote:Explanation]]King Sombra is commonly accused of being a GenericDoomsdayVillain with no real character to speak of. Taken to extremes when minor antagonists who aren't actually villainous are said to be better villains than Sombra.[[/labelnote]] ** Combining two above memes, we get "Still more screentime than Sombra." [[/folder]] [[folder:Minor Characters]] [[AC:General]] * "Who is responsible for subjecting our eyes to these... horrors?"

Usually comes in two flavors: the usual book cover format and comic book (complete with fake publisher logos, price tag, and a random issue number).[[/labelnote]] * '''YEAH!''' [[labelnote:explanation]]The huge muscled, tiny winged white pegasus (FanNickname of Roid Rage or [[SpaceMutiny Big McLargehooves]]) popping up to deliver this line with enthusism throughout "Hurricane Fluttershy". Sometimes combined with the [[Series/CSIMiami]] GlassesPull meme.[[/labelnote]] * Peepingweight [[labelnote:explanation]]Featherweight, a shutterbug pegasus introduced in "Ponyville Confidential" looking through a cellar window or into the spa with camera at the ready, followed by a candid image.[[/labelnote]] * Everypony is gay for Braeburn [[labelnote:explanation]] Braeburn is a cowboy-like pony who lives in a very Wild West inspired town. His {{Keet}}ness made him incredibly popular almost instantly. Additionally, he is most often seen shipped with other male ponies (mostly Big Macintosh or Soarin'). Probably a reference to BrokebackMountain and/or the GuiltyGear "Bridget" meme..[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Shining Armor]] * "TWILY!!!"[[labelnote:explanation]]Shining Armor's nickname for Twilight Sparkle. Has become somewhat of a meme for people to quote it in livestream chat or during reaction videos when Shining Armor appears onscreen.[[/labelnote]] * Shining Armor has horn herpes.[[labelnote:explanation]]King Sombra blocked Shining Armor's magic by implanting dark crystals onto his horn. The penis jokes practically wrote themselves.[[/labelnote]] * Shining Armor: Wife Tosser / [[http://derpiboo.ru/tags/epic-wife-tossing Epic Wife Tossing]] [[labelnote:explanation]]In the second part of the season three premiere, Shining Armor performs a FastballSpecial, with his wife Cadance serving as the ball.[[/labelnote]] * [[SandInMyEyes Liquid pride]]. [[labelnote:explanation]]When Twilight Sparkle was crowned as a princess, Shining Armor started crying. He tried to downplay his tears as "liquid pride" when Twilight asked about them. As a result, "liquid pride" immediately became a fan euphemism for ManlyTears.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Photo Finish]] * Photo Finish from "Green Isn't Your Color" is another FountainOfMemes. "It iz time to make... ''de magicks!''" * Even her X is graceful! [[labelnote:explanation]]A snowclone that shows up on videos of Fluttershy doing something cute, funny, or both. Inspired by Photo Finish's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIjUMxEbJ3U "Even her sneezes are graceful!"]] remark in "Green Isn't Your Color"; thus, it's frequently typed in a bad German FunetikAksent.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Big Macintosh]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vht4dWEaV8s "Eeyup".]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Big Macintosh's CatchPhrase is used to reply to pretty much anything, be it in response to CaptainObvious, a sarcastic reply, or genuine agreement.[[/labelnote]] * [[CargoShip Big Mac x Smarty Pants OTP!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Near the end of Lesson Zero, after everyone reverts to normal from the spell that Twilight Sparkle placed on the Smarty Pants doll, Big Mac notices the discarded doll and takes it for himself.[[/labelnote]] ** Big Macintosh is a brony. [[labelnote:explanation]]See previous explanation.[[/labelnote]] * "Big Macintosh gets ALL the mares!" [[labelnote:explanation]]A popular fan depiction of Big Macintosh as a MemeticSexGod. The phrase is used as a reactionary comment or title to any fan work or discussion depicting him as this.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://youtu.be/ydK-bIVsjGE This scene]] from ''Luna Eclipsed'' has only served to [[http://askbigmcintosh.tumblr.com/post/12019382503 fuel the fire]]. *** "[[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-wpXhyR_1dZ0/TrMYHn_hy_I/AAAAAAAARto/5gSxw56z7IY/s1600/3.jpg is]] [[AccidentalInnuendo very gentle]]". * [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/serious_mac/1 Serious Mac.]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Within hours of the Cider Squeezy episode airing, Mac's unusually stern "Apple Family huddle" has been subjected to exploitable 3-panel comics. Typically it involves him shamelessly depressing the hell out of another character.[[/labelnote]] * Princess Big Macintosh.[[labelnote:explanation]]In the wake of the Twilight alicorn spiel, M.A. Larson [[https://twitter.com/M_A_Larson/status/296853992099704832 jokingly]] gives Peter New (VA for Big Mac) a "ticket to alicorntown". Pictures of Princess-ified Big Macintosh quickly followed.[[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:Background Ponies]] [[AC:General]] * "Brushie brushie brushie" [[labelnote:explanation]] A Photoshopped pic of background pony [[AllThereInTheScript Minuette]] ({{Fan Nickname}}d "Colgate" since her blue and white mane resembles toothpaste) getting her head brushed with a toothbrush inspired a string of similar pictures with other ponies, frequently getting brushed in certain other parts of the anatomy.[[/labelnote]] * In Pinchy We Trust. [[FlatWhat One Wat]] [[labelnote:explanation]]The catchphrase of the [[http://askrubypinch.tumblr.com/ Ask Ruby Pinch]] tumblr and a response to anything that warrants a FlatWhat. Sometimes comes with [[http://askrubypinch.tumblr.com/post/9508858827 this stamp]].[[/labelnote]] * There's a popular trend on Website/YouTube where DJ Pon3's bobbing head animation is synchronized with some ElectronicMusic, making it look as if she's banging her head to the beat of the music. ** Octavia adds her own spin to the trend by having her playing animation synchronized with a piece of ClassicalMusic, making it look like she's playing the piece herself. * Bon Bon: Equestria's top voice actress. [[labelnote:explanation]] Background pony Bon Bon has had speaking parts in five different episodes ("Call of the Cutie", "Green Isn't Your Color", "Lesson Zero", "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000", and "Putting Your Hoof Down"), each time with a different voice. This has led to some fans joking Bon Bon is actually a talented voice actress who keeps changing the way she sounds in order to keep her skills sharp.[[/labelnote]] * "[[[FanNickname PONY]]] [TOY NAME]" / "[TOY NAME] [[[FanNickname PONY]]]" [[labelnote:explanation]]Since the release of the blind bag toys that resemble the background ponies, some fans have adopted the toy names as their second names. Be it their surname, first name, or even their secret real name in [[http://tinyurl.com/7sbsrtu Carrot Top's case]].[[/labelnote]] ** Examples of name combinations are Lyra Heartstrings (which has since become AscendedFanon), Blues Noteworthy or Noteworthy Blues, Rose's full name being Roseluck and Berryshine "Berry" Punch. ** One that happened afterwards is Trixie--who is named in the show--being officially given the surname Lulamoon in the fifth wave after the fourth wave infamously called her just Lulamoon. * "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sob1t-iUCmE Epic Wub Time]]", an original video where Octavia and [=DJ P0N-3=]/Vinyl Scratch are depicted as OddCouple roommates. Features music by various {{dubstep}} artists connected to the MLP fandom, including The Living Tombstone's "Dubstep Dishwasher". A FountainOfMemes, most notably '''''MAH BASS CANNON!''''' -->'''Octavia:''' I was going to be first-chair cellist for the Royal Canterlot Symphony. ''How is this my life?!'' * Octo Octavia/Octotavia [[labelnote:explanation]]In a similar vein to sea pony Lyra, an art trend where Octavia is depicted as an "[[MixAndMatchCritters octopus pony]]". It started out as a simple pun to Octavia's name and its comparison to the word "octopus" and one of the nicknames that is often used by fans: "Octi/Octie/Octy" which is similar in name to [[ThePowerpuffGirls Bubbles']] stuffed octopus. Its inspiration came from a {{Vocaloid}} meme where one of the [=Vocaloid=] characters (Luka Megurine) is depicted as an octopus head known as "[[http://vocaloid.wikia.com/wiki/Tako_Luka Tako Luka]]". The art trend was started by John Joseco[[http://lovetomorrowlove.tumblr.com/post/13645767129]][[http://fav.me/d4hzpxl]]. Other artists soon followed.[[http://datcatwhatdances.tumblr.com/post/13657386652]][[http://askmlcblobs.tumblr.com/post/13665195438]][[http://slugboxponies.tumblr.com/post/13654949396]][[http://allthecrookedtrees.tumblr.com/post/13703553871]][[http://fav.me/d4hvs6g]][[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3X_pFcBwtE Crackle]] is best dragon! [[labelnote:explanation]] Crackle, a one-shot gag character that looks a ''lot'' like Rarity's PaperThinDisguise dragon costume, has since become something of a memetic character due to its bizarre appearance.[[/labelnote]] * Background pony copies are actually changelings! [[labelnote:explanation]] Now that "A Canterlot Wedding" is out, people have designed this as an explanation for "clones" of background characters.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Derpy Hooves]] * [[MemeticBystander Derpy Hooves]]. [[labelnote:explanation]] One pegasus in the background in episode 1 appeared cockeyed. In short order she was given a FanNickname and associated with mail and the postal service. She's also been given an obsession with muffins (based on a dreamy exclamation of "muffin" in "Applebuck Season" which [[BeamMeUpScotty may or may not have been said by her]]), a unicorn daughter named Dinky, the ability to do anything [[AchievementsInIgnorance provided she forgets that it should be impossible]], a friendship with another background pony known as "Carrot Top", and a bad habit of raiding Carrot Top's refrigerator ("[[Webcomic/CarrotCakeStorybook I emptied your fridge]]" has become a meme in itself).[[/labelnote]] ** Creator/LaurenFaust [[AscendedMeme said in response]] "she can be Derpy if everyone likes", and she showed up as a delivery pony in "Feeling Pinkie Keen". ** Derpy Hooves became [[AscendedMeme canon]] in The Last Roundup, having a speaking role with and being called "Derpy" by Rainbow Dash. To say the fans were pleased would be quite the understatement. * Derpy got corrective eye surgery! [[labelnote:explanation]] At the ceremony honouring Twilight and her friends in part 2 of the Season 2 premiere, Derpy/Ditzy is seen in the background without her traditional cockeyed appearance.[[/labelnote]] ** But apparently it didn't take. [[labelnote:explanation]] She can be seen in ''Lesson Zero'' being attracted to the enchanted Miss Smartypants. When the spell is broken, she was fighting the Mayor hoof to hoof, derpy eyes and all.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/i_emptied_your_fridge/1 "I emptied your fridge."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A CatchPhrase and RunningGag where Derpy empties the entire contents of somepony else's fridge for varying reasons or even no given reason at all. May or may not be through the consumption of the food inside. Usually Carrot Top's fridge to her annoyance due to the meme's [[Webcomic/CarrotCakeStorybook origin]].[[/labelnote]] ** The animators did a FandomNod about this in the episode "Luna Eclipsed", this time [[http://youtu.be/FbWbBrm8Nwg involving an apple bobbing tub and a drain]]. [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/75156 Carrot Top is not amused as usual.]] * Ancient Muffins [[labelnote:explanation]]A variation of the Ancient Aliens image macro meme where muffins are the answer to every weird or odd occurrences in the show such as animation errors or {{plot hole}}s as explained by Derpy Hooves. The image used in the macro originated from a deviantART submission by Equestria-Prevails called "[[http://fav.me/d4h7rms Ancient Humans]]". Prior to the artwork, a photoshopped version of the Ancient Aliens guy with Derpy's head pasted over his was used.[[/labelnote]] * Where's Derpy? [[labelnote:explanation]]Derpy has appeared in every episode since "The Best Night Ever", and fans have made a habit of pointing her out in the same vein as WheresWaldo. Starting with "Lesson Zero", Derpy's appearances have become a OncePerEpisode RunningGag, to the point that TheHub themselves [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=275448695837553 posted]] [[http://twitter.com/#!/HubTVNetwork/status/148052378967478272 on]] their {{Facebook}} and {{Twitter}} pages about keeping an eye out for Derpy in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve Hearth's Warming Eve]]" (incidentally making her name even more official than it already was).[[/labelnote]] * Derpy's plot is iron! [[labelnote:explanation]]Derpy's appearance in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]. She had her own scene, and in it she plops down onto a floor...and breaks through. Taking Rainbow Dash with her.[[/labelnote]] * Derpy Drama/Derpygate. [[labelnote:explanation]]A name for all aforementioned memes concerning Derpy's recent controversy. The other name is obviously referencing the infamous Watergate scandal.[[/labelnote]] ** Derpy Shot First [[labelnote:explanation]] After being removed from iTunes and skipped in TheHub's reruns, 'The Last Roundup' was re-released with Derpy's name not mentioned, her scenes revoiced, and her wall-eyed expression lessened. Reaction was... mixed.[[/labelnote]] ** "I just don't know what went wrong." [[labelnote:explanation]]Derpy's first spoken line in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]] is often quoted whenever somepony makes a mistake. Also often used in a [[TearJerker sad context]] concerning the edit. Sometimes accompanied by the emoticon 9_6[[/labelnote]] ** They changed her voice/eyes, now we shall rage. [[labelnote:explanation]]In response to the edit, dozens of reaction videos had soon followed depicting frustrated, irritated, and enraged feelings from the fans.[[/labelnote]] ** This character might be considered offensive; expect censorship. [[labelnote:explanation]] The brief Derpy scare brought on a joke where similar characters will be censored. Including the mental patient barking Pony in "Read It and Weep" and Crackle in "Dragon Quest"[[/labelnote]] ** Derpy's BackForTheFinale! [[labelnote:explanation]] After being completely absent for 12 straight episodes, Derpy had no fewer than ''five'' appearances in the season three finale![[/labelnote]] *** Take ''that'', Elena Barabrich![[labelnote:explanation]] Webcomic artist Elena "Yamino" Barabrich is a common scapegoat for "Derpygate", as she expressed personal distaste at the episode in question a few short days before the censorship occurred. The show staff have actually tried to absolve her of all blame, with varying success. Perhaps not helped by her [[http://fav.me/d5v5dnv digging herself deeper]].[[/labelnote]] * Derpy is mad at Diamond Tiara.[[labelnote:explanation]]In ''Ponyville Confidential'', there is a scene where Diamond Tiara shoves Derpy's fanon daughter Dinky aside. There is fanart of Derpy turning up, [[MamaBear pissed off]].[[/labelnote]] * That Pony/Mare!![[labelnote:explanation]]In issue #1, of the IDW comic, Derpy is shown in the process of being imprisoned and impersonated by changelings. The dialog from Twilight reads "GASP! They've captured that pony in a chrysalis and taken her place!"[[/labelnote]] * Derpy in a Box [[labelnote:explanation]]In the Gameloft iOS app, Derpy appears as a randomly-appearing character who hides in a cardboard box (a la [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]]) and wanders around the screen. If you tap on her box, she comes out of the box, dropping coins and sometimes gems for you to pick up. This overlaps the above, as they only refer to her as "That pony."[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Lyra Heartstrings]] * Sitting Lyra. [[labelnote:explanation]]One of the background ponies, a mint green unicorn with a lyre cutie mark often engaged in some sort of FunnyBackgroundEvent, was seen in "Dragonshy" sitting like a human being on a bench, leading to many fanworks and jokes about her wanting to be human, mostly centered around her odd sitting patterns but recently branching into wanting human hands as well. Some [[TheMerch officially licensed merchandise]] has since shown her sitting in the same manner--namely, the ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=966 Lyra On]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=967 My Pocket]]'' and ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1953 Friendship]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1974 Is Coming]]'' shirts and the [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1330 papercraft]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1331 diorama]].[[/labelnote]] * Lyra wants hands. [[labelnote:explanation]]Ever since the sitting Lyra, fans have speculated that she might in fact have an obsession with humans (even though there are no humans in Equestria). This ranges from [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/58735 her]] [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/38193 creepy]] [[http://www.furaffinity.net/full/6579087/ obsession]] [[http://csimadmax.deviantart.com/art/first-wish-253932825 with]] [[http://thelivingmachine02.deviantart.com/art/OH-GOD-POISON-JOKE-257494010 hands]] to [[http://thelivingmachine02.deviantart.com/art/Running-of-the-Leaves-216041437 mimicking human behavior]] and ultimately to becoming a human herself. [[http://i.imgur.com/VNO0x.jpg questionable content]] [[http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/2963/158764applejackartistti.png or if you want the full pic, also this one is PNG]] [[/labelnote]] * Seapony Lyra. [[labelnote:explanation]] One fanartist has started popularizing a seapony version of Lyra [[http://johnjoseco.deviantart.com/art/Go-Away-Sea-Pony-Lyra-258177483 like this one]]. She's watching you [[ADateWithRosiePalms clop]] clop clop![[/labelnote]] * "Ew gay!" [[labelnote:explanation]] A pic of Lyra saying this was created as a half-joking response to the overabundance of LesYay and femslash shipping in the fandom.[[/labelnote]] ** More recently, [[HetIsEw "Ew, straight!"]] * Lyra teaches about humans [[note]]A new series of pictures featuring Lyra in a classroom giving wildly inaccurate speeches about humanity[[/note]] * Multi-purpose, [[BlatantLies completely non-sexual]] [[EverythingsBetterWithPlushies Lyra plushie]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Some time ago, a fan made Lyra Heartstrings sex toy was put up for auction online. Soon after, waves of fan art started popping up everywhere depicting various characters demonstrating the use of the plush and its... erm... "cavity" as ''anything'' [[IncrediblyLamePun butt]] its intended use such a bag, boxing gloves, mittens, footwear, a mask, a quiver, a sleeping bag, a mail "box" and, most of all, a hand puppet.[[/labelnote]] ** It even has an AskAPony [[http://asklyratheplushie.tumblr.com/ blog]]! * Smoothie Lyra Don't Care [[labelnote:explanation]]One of Lyra's {{Running Gag}}s in the show is her drinking a hay smoothie with her hoof. In the episode "Magic Duel", she appears again with her hay smoothie, seeming completely uninterested in the fate of Ponyville being decided in front of her. This has led to some jokes and fanart about her not giving a flip while drinking a hay smoothie. [[/labelnote]] [[AC:Doctor Whooves]] * [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor Whoof/Whooves]]. [[labelnote:explanation]] Another background character, making his first prominent appearance in "Winter Wrap-Up", though he cameos in the pilot, a male pony with brown fur and an hourglass cutie mark who kinda looks like the Tenth Doctor.[[/labelnote]] ** It also has a followup meme, involving splicing clips from the Doctor Who episode ''Day Of the Moon'' into clips of its show. [[labelnote:explanation]] Specifically, the clip where one of the Silence is recorded saying "You should kill us all on sight", and then turned into a post hypnotic suggestion so people can defeat them. This often gets superimposed on scenes of My Little Pony as a creepy spoof of subliminal messages.[[/labelnote]] ** While [[http://comments.deviantart.com/4/1453017/2307272367 most likely a coincidence]], one of the background ponies during the party in "Sweet and Elite" looks suspiciously like the Eleventh Doctor. ** A blue pony with a blonde mane from "The Best Night Ever", "Sweet and Elite", "[=MMMystery=] on the Friendship Express", and "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2" looks like the Fifth Doctor. *** He's speculated to be the Fifth Doctor, the Eleventh Doctor, or the Seventeenth Master [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Doctor's rival[[/labelnote]]. ** "Sweet and Elite" also had [[FanNickname Pokey Pierce]] appear with an hourglass cutie mark while wearing a red tailcoat and an ascot, making him look like the Third Doctor. ** There's a blue pegasus with wavy black hair and ''that'' cutie mark in "Sonic Rainboom" who appears for a couple of seconds, rather appropriate as it resembles the equally briefly-appearing Eighth Doctor. ** In "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000" Doctor Whooves turns the sand timer for the competition. In other words, even the writers acknowledge that he should be ''in control of time''. *** And the trading cards have turned it into an AscendedMeme, or at least as far as they can take it without drawing the ire of TheBBC. He appears on a card with Mayor Mare and is identified as Time Turner, Ponyville's official timekeeper -- whose duties, aside from hourglasses, include maintaining the city's clocks and "all other things ''timey-wimey''" (and yes, they italicized the MemeticMutation reference to make sure people would notice it). [[/folder]] [[folder:Original Characters]] * Krastos the Glue Maker [[labelnote:explanation]]{{http://www.npr.org/2011/06/25/137386121/bill-clinton-plays-not-my-job During a game-show/interview on NPR}}, former US president BillClinton stated "Krastos the Glue Maker" should be the lead villain on the show. Krastos has started to appear in fan art showing him interacting with the ponies (as well as jokes showing the characters reacting to bottles of glue), drawn as a human with long arms wearing a hat and bib overalls, a bear with a gluepot and hammer, an armored pony, and other designs.[[/labelnote]] * [[Creator/LaurenFaust LAUREN FAUST]] IS BEST PONY. [[labelnote:explanation]] After Ms Faust {{http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/09/exclusive-season-1-retrospective.html drew her own ponysona}} the fandom almost immediately accepted her as a new OC, declaring her to be the third [[FanNickname alicorn]] of Equestria, or even Celestia and Luna's parent. Still there's that matter with reclassifying species though.[[/labelnote]] ** Lauren Faust is the only one allowed to have an Alicorn OC. [[labelnote:explanation]] Said in response for Ms. Faust having an alicorn OC as alicorn [=OCs=] are normally considered {{Mary Sue}}s and the arguement is because she is the show's creator, she is allowed to represent herself as an alicorn without it being considered a MarySue.[[/labelnote]] *** Alicorn Bonnie Zacherle. [[labelnote:explanation]] Bonnie Zacherle created the MyLittlePony franchise in the first place, so by the above reasoning, she should be allowed to represent herself as an alicorn too, if she so chooses.[[/labelnote]] * [[DamnedByFaintPraise I really like her/his... mane?]] [[labelnote:explanation]] Often said in response to seeing someone's OC as a reference to Sweetie Belle's reaction to Twilight's less-than-impressive "Smarty Pants" doll.[[/labelnote]] ** I ''really'' like her/his mane! [[labelnote:explanation]] Another reference, in this case it's to Sweetie Belle's reaction once Twilight brainwashes her into liking the "Smarty Pants" doll. Generally used for cases when someone's OC is actually considered a pretty cool pony design.[[/labelnote]] * Food Pony [[labelnote:explanation]] [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Anthropomorphic ponifications]] of foods, drinks, and condiments.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://derpiboo.ru/tags/coke-pony Coke Pony]] [[labelnote:explanation]] A ponified bottle of Coca-Cola. She is an Earth pony with red hair, a brown transparent glass for a body, and a bottle of Coke for a cutie mark. Her inside is hollow and instead is filled with Coke. Drawn by various fan artists and made a cameo in Fluffle Puff's game ''[[http://fav.me/d4rcb9h "GO FAST"]]''.[[/labelnote]] ** Pizza Pony [[labelnote:explanation]] [[http://derpiboo.ru/images/16492 Mozzarella Orgy]], one of two food pony [=OCs=] created by Sweatshirt, took off in fan-art and all other fan productions, even going so far as to get a [[VideoGame/GarrysMod GMOD]] model![[/labelnote]] [[/folder]]
to:
\n[[foldercontrol]]\n\n----\n!!!Memes General\n\n[[folder:General]]\n* "[[YouWillBeAssimilated WELCOME TO THE HERD]]" [[labelnote:explanation]] Typically said whenever somebody reveals they enjoyed the show. Usually comes with the page pic, which is a screenshot from "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E9BridleGossip Bridle Gossip]]".[[/labelnote]]\n* "[[INeedAFreakingDrink CONFOUND THESE PONIES, THEY DRIVE ME TO DRINK!]]" [[labelnote:explanation]]Usually accompanied by [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/confound_4074.jpg a screenshot]] of a scene in the first episode where Twilight Sparkle pours a bottle of what looks like a an alcoholic drink (but, unfortunately for her, was actually a bottle of hot sauce) into a goblet. They will also drive you to [[TheInsomniac insomnia]], [[LethalChef worms]], [[StalkerWithoutACrush stalking]], and/or [[BoundAndGagged bondage]], among other things. [[http://youtu.be/OZTbycrisCk The line]] itself came from an old Chuck Jones cartoon entitled "TheDoverBoys".[[/labelnote]]\n* " ...in my hooves, on my head, in my saddlebags... in my mouth!" [[labelnote:explanation]]A piece of in-game dialogue that came from one of TheHub's {{Browser Game}}s called ''[[http://www.hubworld.com/my-little-pony/shows/friendship-is-magic/games/mlp-adventures-in-ponyville Adventures in Ponyville]]''. The line seems innocent but when taken out of context [[AccidentalInnuendo could mean something else]].[[/labelnote]]\n* SECRET BUTT FUN [[labelnote:explanation]]A meme that doesn't directly relate to ''My Little Pony'', but was inspired instead by a promo for the ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies2010'' series that used to play over the credits and featured a clip of Niblet the sheepdog saying "Secret, but fun!" Amusingly enough, the promo in question and the episode the clip was taken from both ended up on ''The Friendship Express'' DVD.[[/labelnote]]\n** Scary butt fun! [[labelnote:explanation]]An offshoot of this meme, inspired by Pipsqueak's line in "Luna Eclipse" about Nightmare Night being "scary, but fun". You'll notice they were /very/ careful about how they had him elocute the line.[[/labelnote]]\n* [[http://bronibooru.mlponies.com/post/show/2565/ Gyrobowls]]. [[labelnote:explanation]]Thanks to a Gyro Bowl commercial that aired during the first season finale.[[/labelnote]]\n* "SHOO BE DOO" [[labelnote:explanation]]Originated from the G1 ''My Little Pony'' song "''[[http://youtu.be/P4TedkQP_hM Call Upon the Sea Ponies]]''". A nonsensical comment to anything involving sea ponies usually fan work or discussions. Usually another user will post a follow-up comment with the song's second line: "SHOO SHOO BE DOO".[[/labelnote]]\n* Not so much a meme about the show as about the fandom: It's become something of a tradition among [[PeripheryDemographic male fans]] to advertise their gender, age, and (sometimes) occupation in the comments section of the episodes posted on [=YouTube=], often immediately followed by stating the name of a favorite pony or a general, "... and I love this show!"\n** A common variation is to comment on one of the earlier, but not the first ten, episodes, stating something along the lines of "why am I still watching this?".\n* I am gonna LOVE and TOLERATE the SHIT outta you. [[labelnote:explanation]]The fandom have found themselves conflicted between hating people who don't like the show and the show's overall message of love and tolerance. Compromises were made. Unfortunately, some Bronies do not practice what they claim to preach and will relentlessly insult anyone who enjoys any older incarnation of ''MyLittlePony'', or anyone who criticizes ''Friendship Is Magic''. The phrase "Love & Tolerate" was eventually [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=875 put]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1059 on]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=2418 an]] [[TheMerch officially licensed shirt]] (and used in the description of another [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1600 shirt]] and [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1672 hoodie]]).[[/labelnote]]\n** [[HypocriticalHumor "Love and tolerance" my ass!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Unfortunately, it's also becoming a DiscreditedMeme due to overuse as an [[YourAnswerToEverything answer for everything]].[[/labelnote]]\n* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4M5m-V9Zp0 STOP FAPPING TO HORSES]] [[labelnote:explanation]]A series of videos consisting of {{Accidental Innuendo}}s that pokes fun at the abundance of {{Rule 34}} of ''[=FiM=]''.[[/labelnote]]\n** I can/can't clop to this. [[labelnote:explanation]]A variation on the "I can/can't fap to this" and/or the "I find this easy/difficult to masturbate to" memes, clopping being the pony equivalent of masturbation.[[/labelnote]]\n** [=FiM=] is technically furry [[labelnote:explanation]]Originated as a way of trolling bronies, since, in the loosest definition of the term, they are technically part of the FurryFandom. Now slightly memetic.[[/labelnote]]\n* Thanks Due to the infamous "[[IReadItForTheArticles I watch it for the plot]]" [[http://i416.photobucket.com/albums/pp241/C-Money017/My_little_pony_ass.jpg image macro]], "plot" has become a popular euphemism for pony rump.[[hottip:*:Amusingly, as the "The Crystal Empire" two-parter draws to a close Shining Armor demonstrates that canon ponies do in fact have a fine grasp of the actual r-word...by jokingly complaining to Twilight about saving ''his'' again. Although the word had already been used in the lyrics to "Hop, Skip, and Jump."]] ** Pony variations of the DAT ASS meme include DAT PLOT, DAT FLANK, and DAT CUTIE MARK. ** Less popular, but this also makes "plot hole" a valid and stealthy insult. ** And of course, it tends to be combined with Twilight Sparkle's UnfortunateName, leading to jokes about ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' having well developed plot etc. * Fans have copied the HoldYourHippogriffs instances from the show, and created more of their own. In particular, it is almost ''required'' for "anypony", "everypony" and variants to be used amongst fans, even when not referring to the characters. * "My Little [X]" [[labelnote:explanation]]A word play on the main title where the word "pony" is replaced with another kind of animal or creature. Words other than an animal are usually used in crossovers or practically anything.[[/labelnote]] ** "Friendship Is [X]" / "[X] Is Magic" / "My Little [X]: [Y] is [Z]". [[labelnote:explanation]]The show's subtitle led to the creation of this snowclone meme.[[/labelnote]] ** "AND X MAKES IT ALL COMPLETE!" [[labelnote:explanation]]Another minor snowclone, from a line in the opening theme song "And magic makes it all complete".[[/labelnote]] * [[OhMyGods Thank Celestia]] [[CreatorWorship for Lauren Faust]] [[labelnote:explanation]]This is most likely to be the comment of any brony that comes across past generations and actually watches them, or general praise towards Faust for anything, jokingly (?) attaining an almost mythical status.[[/labelnote]] * "Can you do that? Can you explode twice?!" [[labelnote:explanation]]From Spike and Pinkie Pie's speculation on what the "doozy" in "Feeling Pinkie Keen" meant happened to Fluttershy; Spike suggests she might have exploded, and Pinkie follows it up by saying she might have exploded... and then exploded ''again''. Things exploding twice quickly became a RunningGag in the fandom.[[/labelnote]] * And then nothing sexual happened at all. The end. [[labelnote:explanation]]The traditional response to anything that could be taken as a DoubleEntendre within the show.[[/labelnote]] ** And then everything sexual happened. The end. [[labelnote:explanation]]A reaction to the above, claiming that said scenario did indeed lead to a sexual encounter[[/labelnote]] ** In a similar vein to the above, it has become a bit of a RunningGag with the fandom that, whenever a picture is posted with a caption suggesting a rather explicit encounter, the fandom's typical response is to insert an obligatory non-sexual reason for the caption. For example: -->'''Fluttershy (curled up on the ground):''' Please be gentle. I-it is my first time. -->'''User:''' Hard to believe she's never had a hug before. * Truth Flower [[labelnote:explanation]]Near the end of "The Cutie Pox", Zecora plants "seeds of truth" that require spoken truth to blossom. It quickly became popular to edit in such things as ponies admitting their love/sexuality or lack thereof to one another, characters from other media pitching in (such as [[StarWars Vader's]] [[LukeIAmYourFather famous line]] or [[TheLionKing Scar's murder confession]]), or a variant of either with the flower humorously [[BlatantLies failing to blossom]], similar to the Liarjack meme below.[[/labelnote]] ** In the same vein, there's also a [=YouTube=] video of [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Miles Edgeworth]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggJLcPWvsZE cross-examining Pinkie Pie's "testimony"]] from the episode in question. * "They know!" [[labelnote:explanation]]A common reaction to any time the show appears to be making a FandomNod, coincidental or not.[[/labelnote]] * "Bedroom eyes", taking a screenshot while a character is blinking their eyes and catching them half-lidded. The result is an expression that looks coy when taken out of context (as the Internet is often eager to do). ** The phrase had become memetic ''waaay'' before ponies, mind, but the nature of Flash animation's keyframing makes it particularly easy to abuse in this show. * A metric ton of reaction images on the whole, but most notably by far the [[http://derpibooru.org/tags/shrugpony Shrug pony]] Began with an innocent [[http://megasweet.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=120#/d36gbwv Pinkie Pie,]] and quickly exploded. Ponyshrugs may now be found of nearly the entire cast, as well as of original characters, and even ponified versions of characters from other works. * A [[http://derpibooru.org/8545 fancomic]] that was made to look like an official German magazine comic has spawned a couple memes of its own: ** Terry. [[labelnote:explanation]]Scootaloo's name.[[/labelnote]] ** "Around the zebras, never relax!" [[labelnote:explanation]]King Zebra was the evil mastermind. After putting him to prison, Rainbow Dash comments that zebras can never be trusted, referencing black race stereotypes and treatment. The meme itself is a travestation of "Around the blacks, never relax!"[[/labelnote]] ** [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg "All my friends are here. And Applejack is here too."]] * "[X] IS NOW CANON" [[labelnote:explanation]]Due to the fandom's tendency to turn the smallest comment or frame of animation into a massive meme, their tendency to think of many of these memes as canon, and the recent surge in some of these memes actually ''becoming'' canon, it has become popular to take a screencap of an episode, come up with some far-flung fan theory, and end with ''"[X] is now canon"'' where [X] is the topic in question. [[http://chzbronies.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-brony-fus-roh-yay.png Example]].[[/labelnote]] ** "[X] IS NOW CANNON" [[labelnote:explanation]]A play on the above, when something in the show is used as [[AbnormalAmmo a thrown/shot weapon]].[[/labelnote]] * Tara Strong is best pony. [[labelnote:explanation]]Twilight's voice actress has recently taken to shamelessly trolling the Internet via her Twitter. Led to "Twilighticious" further down the page. As such it has '''nothing to do with''' classifying other species as ponies.[[/labelnote]] * Pony hell. [[labelnote:explanation]]Appears to have taken off with [[http://tinyurl.com/6xuzn2l this image,]] frequently referenced for its sheer absurd NarmCharm.[[/labelnote]] ** Is there a ''[[Series/{{Firefly}} special]]'' [[Series/{{Firefly}} pony hell?]] *** Yes. It's reserved for filly molesters, and ponies who neigh at the theater. * "IT WAS CHANGELINGS!" [[labelnote:explanation]]In the second season finale "A Canterlot Wedding", the series introduces changelings, evil [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifters]] who [[EmotionEater feed on love]]. Since then, changelings have been used to explain, a la AncientAliens and conspiracy theories, the various versions of characters appearing within the fandom such as Princess Molestia ([[http://www.furaffinity.net/view/4831255/ which was originally conceptualized as a succubus who copied Princess Celestia's appearance]]) as an alternative to using the explanation that they came from an alternate reality of some sort, characters acting OutOfCharacter within the show or fan work (especially) such as ''Fanfic/{{Cupcakes}}''!Pinkie Pie, and why we see a lot of clones of background ponies in a lot of scenes within the show (or why they seem to have a different characterization and/or voice every time they are put in a role). It has even been used to explain the changes to Derpy Hooves in ''The Last Roundup'' or Luna's behavior in ''Luna Eclipsed''. Basically they are used as an excuse as to why a character or a group of characters doesn't seem and/or feel "right".[[/labelnote]] * The fire incident at Bronycon 2012 (aka "Burnycon 2012" aka "Burning Pony 2012") has been attributed to serveral culprits: ** Discord ** Derpy Hooves ** Spike ** Firecracker Burst ** [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 The Pyro]] ** [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender The Fire Nation]] * ''"Oh look there's a moose!"'' / ''"Oh look a moose!"'' / ''"Look a moose!"'' [[labelnote:explanation]]Originating from the [[http://youtu.be/CnJWqrWJ2zY Everfree North West Voice Actor Panel]], used by the voice actors, often by CathyWeseluck (in Spike's voice), AndreaLibman, and TabithaStGermain as a hilarious distraction or interruption tactic during awkward situations or in the Q&A session (especially when someone asks about [[spoiler:season 3]]) as a response to questions they were not at liberty to answer or simply didn't want to answer seriously. Tabitha actually invoked the phrase being used in such a way. The phrase has been seen being used as a [[https://twitter.com/#!/search/%23lookamoose hashtag]] (#lookamoose) similar to Twilightlicious on Twitter and a [[http://fav.me/d5bo9m7 few]] [[http://fav.me/d5bqust fanart]] referencing the phrase.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://www.welovefine.com/3222-look-a-moose.html Now with official merchandise!]] * ''"SIGN IT!"'' [[labelnote:explanation]]Comes from the 2012 Galacon charity auction where the auctioneer Perrydotto found out the hard way that stuff sold for higher prices after she signed it, including an apple. People on the live stream chat demanded her to sign more things.[[/labelnote]] ** Rich Swiss Bronies [[labelnote:explanation]]Also at the 2012 Galacon charity auction, the only two items to go for four-digit prices were bought by a group of Swiss Bronies. Now it's suspected that they'll bid outrageously high at whatever Brony auction they show up at.[[/labelnote]] * Rabid Idiot Brony [[labelnote:explanation]][[BoomerangBigot Basically a way for bronies to insult other bronies]] [[SelfDeprecation and themselves.]] They can range to anything from a humorous TakeThat to a legitimate critique of the fandom[[/labelnote]] * ''"That's right."'' [[labelnote:explanation]]Originating from the [[http://youtu.be/tp2hrIbQDJI Canterlot Gardens 2012 Voice Actor Panel]], a phrase that Creator/AndrewFrancis has uttered multiple times in the panel with hilarious results. Soon it crept its way into FanArt with [[http://www.derpibooru.org/tags/that-quo-s-right Shining Armor uttering the phrase]].[[/labelnote]] * GAK [[labelnote:explanation]]In a similar vein to "Gyrobowl", toy commercials that have been repeated over and over again (sometimes up to four times in a row) during Creator/TheHub's commercial breaks. They caught the attention of the fanbase during the season 3 premiere and soon its livestreams' chat boxes were flooded with "GAK" messages, various videos involving Gak receive a ton of GAK comments, Gak related entries and hashtags (#GAK) began popping up in various social media websites, [[http://www.derpibooru.org/tags/gak fan arts were being made]], even an [[http://ask-gak-pony.tumblr.com/ Ask Tumblr]]![[/labelnote]] ** "Gak got more screen time than King Sombra!" is a common observation regarding the new star of the show. ** The trend seems to be continuing - it aired twice in a row during the premiere of Too Many Pinkie Pies, and another, similar product known as Floam also aired twice in a row. It remains to be seen if the Gak trend will continue for the rest of the season, or whether Gak vs. Floam wars will start up. In addition, during the premiere of "One Bad Apple", Gak commercials aired four times in a row during one commercial break, then twice during another break, followed by two Floam commercials - ironically enough, Floam was originally known as "Bubble-gak". ** Gak bath/Gak is a product of the Crystal Empire [[labelnote:explanation]]In the episode "Games Ponies Play", Cadance shows the Mane 6 a "crystal mud bath" that looks and acts very much like Gak. Seeing as Gak commercials were prevalent during the Crystal Empire premiere, the product began to be seen as coming from the Crystal Empire[[/labelnote]] * Winter-Tee-Tag (Winter Tea Day) [[labelnote:explanation]]The song "Winter Wrap Up" ended up as "Winter-Ade-Tag" (Winter Farewell Day) in German. However, since there's one extra syllable in the translation which had to be squeezed somewhere, it sounds like either "Winter-D-Tag" ("Winter D-Day") or "Winter-Tee-Tag" ("Winter Tea Day").[[/labelnote]] * That's an academy record! [[labelnote:explanation]]From Season 3 episode "Wonderbolts Academy", where Rainbow Dash and newcomer Lightning Dust proceed to break a slew of Academy records with every scene. The fandom then proceeded to run with it.[[/labelnote]] * "Racist barn!" [[labelnote:explanation]]A {{Mondegreen}} of the song lyric "Raise this barn" in "Apple Family Reunion."[[/labelnote]] ** "Racist porn!" [[labelnote:explanation]]Another {{Mondegreen}} of the same.[[/labelnote]] ** [[Series/SesameStreet One, Two, Three, Four, ah ah ah ah!]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0ly60b42ig "They're throwing pandas at us!"]] [[labelnote:explanation]]There been many who have criticized season 3 for PanderingToTheBase. So much so that someone made video illustrating how ridiculous this was ("[[PandaingToTheAudience Pandas?]] What the--? You mean ''[[PanderingToTheBase Pandering]]''!?") and the fans ran with it. [[https://twitter.com/MMeghanMcCarthy/status/287712360267907072 Even Meghan McCarthy was in on the joke.]][[/labelnote]] * The Gameloft Game. Due to Gameloft's attempt at making money off the bronies, by forcing them to purchase Freemium currency with real money in order to buy certain plot-centric ponies, the main meme here is everyone hurting for gems. Spike starves, Rarity has emotional breakdowns at the thought of no gems, The Mane 6 steal all the jewels from Bejeweled, etc. A few more minor ones spawned from the game as well, most notably Derpy in a cardboard box (see below) and Bic Macintosh, the heaviest known pony, somehow being able to fly with Rarity's gossamer-strand butterfly wings. Oh, and there's also the ridiculous amounts of money spent to cover the ground in roads, so as to prevent parasprites and rocks from spawning. * "[[SincerityMode I believe in M.A. Larson]]."/ "[[SarcasmMode Thanks, M.A. Larson]]!"[[labelnote:explanation]]Slogans of the BrokenBase that emerged upon the reveal that [[spoiler: Twilight Sparkle would become an alicorn]] in the season 3 finale episode. The former group believes the change can work and showed their support for Larson (the episode's writer) in ways like changing their Twitter icons to show a [[http://derpiboo.ru/222510 badge]] of support. The latter group showed their dissent by attaching their slogan to images of famous disasters, sarcastically linking Larson as the cause. The former comes from the viral marketing for ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' while the latter is based on the "Thanks Obama" meme.[[/labelnote]] * "That was a good final episode"[[labelnote:explanation]]The Japanese audience often jokes about the second episode as if it were the season finale using this phrase, due to the main villain being defeated and the characters gaining a new power.[[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:Crossovers]] * [[{{Crossover}} Crossing]] ''Friendship Is Magic'' with anything and everything has become a meme all of its own. ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' (''FanFic/BetterLivingThroughScienceAndPonies'' and plenty of other fics), ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' (endless Gmod works with both casts), ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' ([[Crossovers/{{Touhou}} crossed with everything]] anyway), ''Series/DoctorWho'' (thanks to the popularity of Doctor Whoof), TheSlenderManMythos, ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' (thanks to Twilight Sparkle and Stocking having similar haircuts and color schemes), ''Franchise/StarTrek'' (thanks to John de Lancie aka Q voicing Discord), ''Franchise/MetalGear''[[labelnote:explanation]](thanks to repeated "stealth" sequences in the show: Apple Bloom's sneaking sequence in "Call of the Cutie", Rainbow Dash infiltrating the hospital in "Read It and Weep", Twilight Sparkle leading Spike and Pinkie Pie into the Canterlot Archives ''while looking remarkably like Snake'' in "It's About Time")[[/labelnote]], and '''many''' more. And practically every character ever has been "ponified" at least once. ** Speaking of ''[[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 TF2]]'', the Scout has often been [[CrackPairing comically paired up/shipped]] with Rainbow Dash due to his infamous "Rainbows make me cry" meme. ** Some madman (or in this case,[[DoctorWho mad Dalek]]) went so far as to [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7556482/1/Friends_of_a_Solar_Empire cross it over]] with ''SinsOfASolarEmpire'', of all things. *** [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/09/story-son-of-emperor.html The Napoleonic Wars.]] ** In regards to the ponies on Gmod, there's also EPPALJECK, the name given to [[UncannyValley the creepy beta version]] of the Applejack rag-doll. She is NightmareFuel incarnate, and pretty much the ''Friendship is Magic'' equivalent of Vagineer and Painis Cupcake. ** '''[[NoIndoorVoice Objection!]]''' Why didn't you testify to the fact that there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUDfoZGhLjE three]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s07W4-A7HQw parts]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIvfwJTPK_0 of a four-part crossover]] with [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Phoenix Wright]] are currently available on Website/YouTube? * [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/09/magneto.html MAGNETO]]. [[labelnote:explanation]] From Bronyville Livestream, while the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]" was being aired, an ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' CommercialPopUp featuring {{Magneto}} kept popping up in the lower-right corner of the screen. It was widely considered hilarious and led to, for example, the fans blaming him for ruining the Gala. [[/labelnote]] ** In an "Evolution of a Scene", made by one of the animators on the show (for both season one and two), at the end there is an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJelKyxtXXU animation]] of pony Magneto at the gala, using the pony statue to take down the Wonderbolts while saying "WELCOME TO DIE!!!" ** [[CaptainErsatz Magneighto]] has even become an official CanonForeigner by appearing on TheMerch, specifically [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/867-2043.jpg the]] ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/867-2044.jpg Magnet]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/867-2045.jpg Pony]]'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1282-3899.jpg shirt]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1282-3901.jpg and]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1282-3904.jpg hoodie]] (both of which are sadly no longer available). * ComicBook/SpiderMan's a brony [[labelnote:explanation]]The Spider-Man cartoon from the 60's has already undergone its own MemeticMutation and a crossing of the memes was inevitable. Fans like to Photoshop Spidey into the show, causing almost as much chaos as Pinkie Pie.[[/labelnote]] ** [[{{Deadpool}} So am I!]] * Congratulations! Your Twilight Sparkle has evolved into [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Rapidash]]! [[labelnote:explanation]]When Twilight starts BurningWithAnger in "Feeling Pinkie Keen", she turns into a white unicorn with a flaming mane, which looks suspiciously like [[Characters/PokemonGenerationIFamilies Rapidash]], another white unicorn with a flaming mane.[[/labelnote]] * ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' crossovers have begun to take hold, thanks to Gentaro's goal to befriend everyone in his school.

''[[SpongeBobSquarePants "F" is for friends who do stuff together...]]'' [[labelnote:explanation]]For obvious reasons, Luna asking what fun is in "Luna Eclipsed" is often answered with Spongebob's FUN song.[[/labelnote]] ** IT'S NOT JUST A BOULDER, IT'S A ROCK! [[labelnote:explanation]]This phrase from the "Pizza Delivery" episode has become popular when applied to Rarity to both when she gets {{Mind Rape}}d by Discord and when she finds the geode that earns her cutie mark.[[/labelnote]] ** Are you feeling it now, Mr. Krabs? [[labelnote:explanation]] Relating to the Gak meme below, a common phrase during the commercials was "Are you feeling it?" This led to people being reminded of said Spongebob quote during livestreams, causing it to be stated whenever the Gak commercials showed up.[[/labelnote]] ** In general, if the fandom can connect an ''[=FiM=]'' meme to one from [[Memes/SpongeBobSquarePants SpongeBob]], they will do so. * The Engineer is a Spy! [[labelnote:explanation]]Crossovers between VideoGame/TeamFortress2 and MLP:[=FiM=] are very popular. In these crossovers, Applejack is usually the Engineer and Rarity is usually the Spy.

The show shares quite a few of MLP's voice actors and other staff (in laymare's terms, Applejack voices the main human girl, Rarity voices a skunk, etc.), and then somepony discovered Zoe Trent happens to look quite a bit like Twilight Sparkle (resulting in the FanNickname [[IncrediblyLamePun Twilight Barkle]]), allowing for [[http://kas92.deviantart.com/art/Encounter-337174811 insane crossover fun]]. * Thanks to the fact that Sweetie Belle's voice actor plays ''{{Minecraft}}'' (and suffered a RageQuit while doing so).

[[labelnote:explanation]] During a period where several Rule34 pictures of Lauren Faust's alicorn OC were posted, many pictures were edited with Subway sandwiches replacing... certain body parts.

This one started from an attempt to turn the title theme into ''katakana'', hence ''My Little Pony''=''Mai.Ritoru.Ponii''.

[[labelnote:explanation]]Literally "Big Bro", this is the Japanese fandom's generally accepted nickname for Big Macintosh -- he's one of the few characters who has his own separate nickname in Japanese.[[/labelnote]] ** Air Wife. [[labelnote:explanation]]This one does take some explaining. ''Kuuki wo yomenai'' is Japanese for "can't read the atmosphere", a phrase describing people who speak or act inappropriately, usually in serious situations; as you might expect, the two characters most frequently accused of this are Pinkie and Dash. The phrase can also be shortened to ''kuukiyome'', which is punningly spelled with the kanji for "wife" (''yome''). Somebody noticed that the English translation of ''kuukiyome'' was peculiarly apposite to Rainbow Dash, and hilarity ensued.[[/labelnote]] ** Applejack is an [[{{Hunk}} ikemen]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Many Japanese fans found Applejack to be manly, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff which has lead to her popularity]].[[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:[=YouTube=]]] * Setting clips of ''MLP: [=FiM=]'' to audio of other things, the more HotBlooded or [[RatedMForManly macho]] the better: ''[[Franchise/StarCraft Pony]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJbAT1wzS8U craft 2]]'', ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim VI:]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egrlzkKa6O8 Equestria]]'', ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps Call Of Cutie]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeCODFpKVJ8 Blank Ops]]'', ''[[Franchise/MassEffect Pony]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqpyAlvyP3Y Effect 2]]'', (surely inevitably) ''[[Film/ThreeHundred 300]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTlGYS6rAfA Ponies]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPO4x2Wm0xY Friendship Is Magic]] [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean At World's End]]'', ''[[Film/TheDarkKnight The Rainbow]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sfu_Zn5zkX4 Knight]]'', ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Lord of the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coExS8nrsGY Ponies]]'', ''[[Film/VanHelsing Van]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAJlPXTNe8Q Sparkle]]'', ''[[Film/InglouriousBasterds Inglourious]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bxAyP6uJ4k Ponies]]'', ''[[Film/VForVendetta P for]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egvo47uAtOU Pinketta]]'', ''[[PowerRangers Pony Rangers]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_Ph94Jbc-k Zeo]]'', ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Space]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnBaDMzFSfo Marene]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=za9f1c93FHY Twilight Sparkle is]] [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Still Alive]]'' (and its sequel, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWFwNIN8Cp4&feature=related Nightmare Moon Only]] [[Videogame/{{Portal 2}} Wants You Gone]]''), ''[[EVEOnline My Little Eve:]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_Q6M6pO_2s Spaceships are Magic]]'', ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas Fallout]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4BL4g6NISs New Canterlot]]'', ''[[TheWitcher Pony]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNMBF5czSoA 2 Assasins of Kings]]'', ''[[Literature/ShutterIsland Fluttershy]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dmcB-DrYNw Island]]'', ''[[Film/{{Thor}} So]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLDLtQXGB0I ar]]'', ''[[KillBill KILL SPIKE]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pc_txT_l0TI Vol 1]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4rKxH17GSk Top Wing]],'' ''[[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Tengen Toppa]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3L6MJimBc-s Pony Lagann]]'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHLkTh7YVxU Spike Fights The Power]], ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6Bs22TbtVI Puella]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcU-5-nBZhs Magi]] [[http://youtu.be/jERuovcS0Ec PONY]] [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Magica]]'' (Complete with [[http://youtu.be/qO7OimRIOn4 Wonderbolt-flavored Morning Rescue]]), ''[[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Meet the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-62QJ4Eutc Ponies]]'', ''[[ClashOfTheTitans Clash of the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sw9U-SvxftQ Ponies]]'', ''[[VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi When]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWLGlkaBBoA the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULP-IWvfVBU Ponies]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rheWFVoU_DI Cry]]''... ** ...''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCCNUNDa7jA&feature=youtu.be Pony Confidential]]'' (not to be confused with the episode of similar name), ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMXhEXQSXSw Doctor Pony's]] [[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Sing Along Blog]]'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsCHIKTRYRk Inside]] DungeonsAndDragons, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKs-MHFil0k Pony]] [[LeeroyJenkins Jenkins]], [[KanyeWest Ima let you finish]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pgpazSmWVk Twilight]], ''[[PinkyandtheBrain Pinkie]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCpdDS3L2xs & the Brain]]'', ''[[Film/ThePrestige The]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIAE7qRE7nI Trixige]]'', ''[[Film/BatmanBegins Batmare]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hWzqVvx3Wg Begins]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ouvd5gur2_o Spike]] [[VideoGame/DukeNukemForever Nukem Forever]]'', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P3HHpf-fZY My Little]] Film/{{Serenity}}'', ''[[Film/TheHuntForRedOctober The Hunt for]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_r6uIHHTI0w Twilit October]]'', ''[[Film/AClockworkOrange A Clockwork]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qai9jvzli5U Pink -

Trixie's even earned a [[http://wingsoffox.deviantart.com/art/A-Youtube-moment-comic-262669991 reaction in comic form]].[[/labelnote]] * Seemingly random videos on Youtube will occasionally get a high-voted comment to the effect of "ponies brought me here".

[[labelnote:Explanation]]It's about half and half things that popped up as a related video to something more equine and resulted in a curious [[WikiWalk Youtube Walk]], and things linked from a pony forum or fan fiction or something.[[/labelnote]] ** These videos will often have the comment "This video is now about ponies." ** Somewhat related, but pick a Music/HeyOcean music video.

You'll find tons of comments that pretty much amount to "Oh my gosh, [[HeyItsThatVoice it's Applejack/Rainbow Dash]]!"[[labelnote:explanation]]Music/HeyOcean's lead female singer Ashleigh Ball is the voice actress for Applejack & Rainbow Dash. And now you know why [[TheCastShowoff she does her own singing]].[[/labelnote]] ** It's now practically routine for someone to shout "Lookout! Incoming Bronies!" whenever a video contains a reference that the latest episode just made. * *cut to credits* [[labelnote:explanation]]Many Youtube Poops of My Little Pony often have a character say something that resolves the plot, or just ''anything random'', followed by a hard cut to normal credits of the show.[[/labelnote]] * [Character Name].mp4. Interestingly, all of the Mane Six have at least one moment where their eyes roll around in a daze, usually in response to a sudden shock or blow to the head. For some reason, these scenes have been looped and then set to Parov Stelar's "Catgroove". * When I'm X [[labelnote:explanation]]Following from a larger Website/YouTube meme, [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/when-im-bored When I'm Bored]], short videos featuring one pony set to "Let Me Hit It" by Sporty-O; eg "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEnWvHrfgYE When I'm 20% Cooler]]" for Rainbow Dash or "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJP11_BkU8Q&feature=related When I'm Magic]]" for Twilight Sparkle.[[/labelnote]] ** And somewhat related, X Sauce. [[labelnote:explanation]]A meme rather similar to When I'm X but a bit more simpler set to "Barbra Streisand" by Duck Sauce, where the name comes from. It started with "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oPkcl9sDNc Pony Sauce]]" for Twilight and since then has been done with other MLP characters and some that aren't even from MLP such as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OolQP4OKhXw Heavy Sauce]]" for Heavy, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vygIaJzhrQ Fox Sauce]]" for Tails and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHOb78pmqOY Barbra Sauce]]" for Barbra Streisand of all people.[[/labelnote]] * Hay bacon strips, hay bacon strips, hay bacon strips.

Said reaction is put on a loop and set to the chorus of "Untitled (How Could This Happen to Me?)" by A Simple Plan.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXWgGw0-MjE&feature=related Rainbowstep]], a {{Dubstep}} PMV about the Sonic Rainboom using "Equinox" from {{Skrillex}}. * Wanna X? [[labelnote:explanation]]An offshoot of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOSR76VHhII Wanna Dance]] meme, where a character dances to "Lo Fi Epic" as popularised by the Lower Afterlife from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. The starter was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPtpxhDfDbQ Wanna Study?]], starring Twilight who is as incapable of dancing as Commander Shepard. Coincidentally, also by the guy who started [Character Name].mp4 and X Sauce.[[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:Merchandise]] * PONY VERBS THE NOUN [[labelnote:explanation]]Some of the boxes that the toys come in have stickers that seem to [[ClarkesLawForGirlsToys instruct what the pony does]], such as "PONY PULLS THE WAGON". This relatively minor snowclone was the result.[[/labelnote]] * Since there is a toy for it, a few fanarts depict Applejack with a pink pickup truck, always with a cardboard cutout of Twilight Sparkle in the truckbed. ** Naturally, the memetic nature of the Cardboard Cutout made an ''AlanWake'' crossover [[http://derpiboo.ru/10064 inevitable]]. * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbBbV_zP1d8 EHT'S TWALAHT SPORKLES BAHLEWN]] [[labelnote:explanation]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMatVdLyHq8 A commercial for MLP merchandise]] gives [[TheOtherDarrin a rather failed attempt at Applejack's accent]].[[/labelnote]] * "No one man should have all that pony!"

Reference to Kayne West's "Power" video recreated as the opening to Ponies: The Anthology.[[/labelnote]] * DAMN YOU, HABSRO!! [[labelnote:explanation]] Common exclamation of bad news on the pony front, placing the blame on one of the powers that be, or an everyday troll. Referring to when copies of episodes on Youtube were taken down by a copyright claim from [[http://bronies.memebase.com/2011/08/28/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-brony-habsro-habsro-habsro/ Habsro.]][[/labelnote]] ** PRAISE HABSRO!! [[labelnote:explanation]] Inversion of above.[[/labelnote]] * The Doggie Doo Game. [[labelnote:explanation]] A commercial for [[http://www.doggiedoogame.com/ this game]] ran during the episode "Sisterhooves Social". This has not escaped the notice of the fans.[[/labelnote]] ** Creepily enough, there was already a video mashing up the theme song and another ad for the same game four months prior to the episode. * "Fanon names are best names." [[labelnote:explanation]]A belief and phrase uttered by those who refuse to accept the Blind bag toy names as a particular background pony's official name. Reasons include their toy names not being confirmed as canon in the show yet due to the fact that the toy department and the animation studio are working separately from each other, their toy designs, especially the character profile cards that came along with the toys, are too different from their supposed show counterparts to be the same pony, and because they just don't like the toy names in general.[[/labelnote]] ** "Toy names are best names." [[labelnote:explanation]]The antithesis of the one above. There are in fact those who took a liking on the toy names but this one is usually invoked by others to {{Troll}} those who believe that the {{Fan Nickname}}s are the only true name.[[/labelnote]] *** Some fans take a [[TakeAThirdOption third option]] and combine the two, making one or the other a surname, a full name, or a nickname. *** Hasbro has officially made it naming policy in the fifth wave of Blind Bags to combine the names for [[AscendedFanon Lyra]] Heartstrings and Trixie [[UnfortunateNames Lulamoon]]. PRAISE BE TO HASBRO!! * Star Swirl the Not so Bearded [[labelnote:explanation]]A fusion of the show's depiction of Star Swirl and [[http://derpibooru.org/164735 Star Swirl]]. This fan-made version of Star Swirl is a mare who possesses the color scheme and cutie mark of the toy Star Swirl and sports the unicorn horn, wizard hat and cape of the show's Star Swirl. [[http://fav.me/d4glutz These]] [[http://fav.me/d4h1te9 are]] [[http://fav.me/d4hr5lf some]] [[http://fav.me/d4iidkq examples]].[[/labelnote]] * Comic shorts in magazines of various languages are a fountain of memes, mostly due to their questionable quality, for example reusing low-quality vectors. [[/folder]] ---- !!!Character Memes [[folder:General]] * It seems that if anypony makes a goofy face on the show, fans will pounce on it. Aside from Derpy Hooves and her FishEyes in the first episode, "Applebuck Season" brings us Rainbow Dash's[[http://derpibooru.org/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sbq=dashface&commit=Go gushing kissy-face]] (along with the accompanying phrase "So ''awesome!''" and the emoticon "'''/)^3^(\'''") and Applejack's various loopy sleep-deprived faces, along with her look of disgust when she mishears the "wheat germ" part of Pinkie Pie's muffin recipe as "wheat worms", and "The Best Night Ever" brings [[http://derpibooru.org/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sbq=flutterrage&commit=Go "Flutterrage"]]. ** As of Season 2, there page has been an abundance of UncannyValley-ish expressions whenever a pony's head is looking directly at the camera. Colloquially known as the [[http://derpiboo.ru/search?utf8=✓&sbq=faic&commit=Go FAIC]]. split. [[index]] * [X] IS BEST PONY [[labelnote:explanation]]A common way of expressing one's favor for a particular character. The omission of the word "the" is intentional. However, often used when [X] isn't a pony at all (like Spike or Gilda), or is a character from a completely different work (like Magneto) which still isn't a pony.[[/labelnote]] ** "Silly anon, that's not how you spell 'Pinkie Pie!'" [[labelnote:explanation]] Fans naming other ponies as their favorite character tend to attract image macros with this phrase, though there's at least one version where Pinkie admits [[{{Moe}} Fluttershy]] [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer is her favorite, too]].[[/labelnote]] *** Another response is "You misspelled Fluttershy." '''[[Memes/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicGeneralMemes General Memes]]''' * A few image macros pop up with some of the characters looking at the viewer asking for [[CuddleBug 'hugs']]. [[CutenessProximity Sometimes it can work]], [[TastesLikeDiabetes when done right]]. * Ponies. In. Socks. [[labelnote:explanation]] An [[http://egophiliac.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d3kx7ku adorable piece of fan art of Luna wearing socks]] has spawned [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/07/drawfriend-stuff-ponies-in-socks.html all kinds of cute fanart]] of Luna or another pony in socks, a [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/07/story-lunas-socks.html fanfic]], and even [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=919 an]] [[TheMerch officially licensed shirt]].[[/labelnote]] ** Sweaters are the new socks. ** Minty liked socks before they were cool. [[labelnote:explanation]]Minty is a [=G3=] pony who collected socks.[[/labelnote]] * "Congratulations, X! You're the new Y!" [[labelnote:explanation]]A play on the original line "Congratulations, Spike! You're the new Rainbow Dash!" Examples include "Congratulations, Pinkie Pie! You're the new Scootaloo!" in response to Pinkie's chicken costume in "Luna Eclipsed" and "Congratulations, Twilight! You're the new Rarity!" in response to Apple Bloom giving Twilight's mane the same style as Rarity's in "The Cutie Pox".[[/labelnote]] * CELESTIA, [[MagnificentBastard YOU MAGNIFICENT MARE!]] ''YOU READ MY LETTERS!'' [[labelnote:explanation]]Celestia's BatmanGambit for snapping Twilight Sparkle out of Discord's spell was simply to send Twilight copies of all the letters she'd written to Celestia in season 1, about what she'd learned about friendship, knowing that even a mindscrewed Twilight Sparkle would not be able to resist the written word. The quote is a reference to ''Film/{{Patton}}''. [[/labelnote]] * Good morning, [X]! [[labelnote:explanation]]A series of pieces by [[http://johnjoseco.deviantart.com/ this artist]] depicting various characters shortly after waking up. Other artists have since joined in on the theme.[[/labelnote]] * "Lock it under a rock, I'm sure it won't get out." [[labelnote:explanation]]Nightmare Moon and Discord, the two {{Big Bad}}s of the series so far, were sealed in the moon and turned into a statue respectively, both by Celestia. Fan speculation for Celestia's reason for using essentially the same imprisonment strategy twice usually has someone suggest this was what she was thinking during both instances. [[/labelnote]] ** Many fans exaggerate this by making it her go-to solution for ''anything'' she doesn't like. * [PONY] found a [VEHICLE] [[labelnote:explanation]] Looping animations of one or more characters driving a vehicle at high speed accompanied with a fitting background music. Usually also includes extra elements happening around them as they drive. It started with [[http://dx11.deviantart.com/art/FLASH-Pinkie-found-a-TransAm-266985369 this one]], which features Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Fluttershy riding a [=TransAm=] down the side of a mountain. The [[http://chaostangent.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/575831.jpg car]] they were driving and the background music (called "[[http://youtu.be/doEwWzMz99A Yellow Line]]") are from an Anime movie called RedLine. Many others have followed in its wake. (A collection can be found [[http://ponies-in-vehicles.deviantart.com/gallery/ here]].)[[/labelnote]] * [[{{Rule 63}} Colt versions]]. [[labelnote:explanation]]Genderbends of the Mane Cast, usually created by lowering the pitch on the original voices. In this incarnation, their names become Butterscotch, Applejack, Elusive, Rainbow Blitz, Bubble Berry, and Dusk Shine (and his number one secretary, Barbara). In case you're confused as to who's who, they are male versions of Fluttershy, Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Twilight Sparkle, and Spike.[[/labelnote]] ** At least [[http://www.youtube.com/user/philsterman10 one]] Youtuber has taken it a step further, not only voice acting as the colts, but changing their dialog to be more male-specific (for example, Elusive designs suits instead of dresses and wants to find a princess rather than a prince charming). Think [[FanFic/SuzumiyaHaruhiNoSeitenkan The Gender-Flip of Haruhi Suzumiya]], only with ponies. *** And this itself has spawned a VA project that seeks to voice the Genderswapped Mane Six to use as a live reading for the story "Fanfic/OnACrossAndArrow" which popularized the Male Cast. The casting call can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsqZJ8TxSGc here]], the accepted voice list can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWs7qmWiEkU here]], a demo of the accepted voices can be heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0DYX1IYe2s here]] and the first episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ggSrYShCk0 here]]. ** This has started slowly to spread to the other background ponies/characters.

Most of these can be found [[http://mammoh.deviantart.com/gallery/ here]] and [[http://tomdantherock.deviantart.com/gallery/ here]].[[/labelnote]] ** The trend originated from a popular Vinyl Scratch gif that came from [[http://fav.me/d486hs2 here]] (the links below the image provides [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v488/Valcron/TAVI.png a comic version]], [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v488/Valcron/TurnTabletemplate.png a template for the frames]], [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v488/Valcron/ScratchonRecord-1.gif the animated gif]], [[http://youtu.be/fz1rfOn4IAU a Youtube video]], and [[http://fav.me/d4dz6y0 a vectorized version]]). * [X] Cannon/Bazooka/Launcher [[labelnote:explanation]]An art trend of ponies wielding large shoulder mounted cannons/bazookas/launchers. Color scheme of the cannon and its ammunition depends on its wielder. Originated from one of a series of ''[=FiM=]'' themed weapons created by Flamingo1986. One of which was called the "[[http://fav.me/d3gluka Pinkie Pie Launcher]]". Other artists later edited Pinkie Pie herself holding the launcher[[http://fav.me/d3hk22m]] and it soon spread to other characters as well.[[/labelnote]] ** Party Cannon. [[labelnote:explanation]]Shown in the episode "Sweet and Elite" where Pinkie Pie shows it off as to explain how she can set up parties so quickly. Makes a return in "A Canterlot Wedding, Part 2".[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sob1t-iUCmE Bass Cannon.]] * Wet manes. [[labelnote:explanation]]Fanart showing characters with their manes drenched and hanging down, inspired by a scene with Rarity in "Sisterhooves Social". One such fanart piece, of Silver Spoon as a grown mare, eventually went on to be [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=517431964964140 used]] in Creator/{{Gameloft}}'s ''VideoGame/MyLittlePony'' game.[[/labelnote]] * Baby ponies. [[labelnote:explanation]]In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E8TheMysteriousMareDoWell The Mysterious Mare Do Well]]", one of Rainbow Dash's heroic deeds was saving a baby pony from falling off a cliff. While (older-looking) babies had previously appeared in the SpinOffBabies [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrtUFeDB7gg toy commercial]] and toys, this was the first time that any appeared in the show itself. With in-show reference for a baby at hand, [[http://baby-ponys.deviantart.com/ the fandom had a field day.]] And now that "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyfriendshipIsMagicS2E12BabyCakes Baby Cakes]]" has aired, they're having another.[[/labelnote]] * Smooth Cheerilee / Spike Criminal [[labelnote:explanation]]A fair number of people have noticed how the NiceHat Cheerilee gives Spike in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess Secret of My Excess]]" resembles that worn by MichaelJackson in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_D3VFfhvs4&ob=av2n the video for "Smooth Criminal"]]. This has resulted in a [[http://www.canterlot.com/gallery/image/1152-cheerilee-smooth-criminal/ few]] [[http://crabmeatstick.deviantart.com/art/Smooth-Cheerilee-273464522 pieces]] [[http://paradigmpizza.deviantart.com/art/Smooth-Criminal-273284320 of art]] depicting either Cheerilee or Spike wearing an outfit that resembles Michael's Moonwalker ensemble and performing the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smooth_Criminal#Anti-gravity_lean anti-gravity lean]].[[/labelnote]] * Fluffy ponies [[labelnote:explanation]]A trending art meme where ponies are drawn with thicker and fluffier fur.[[/labelnote]] ** Fluffle Puff [[labelnote:explanation]][[http://fav.me/d4l5y4r The OC]] that started (or at least popularized) the whole fluffy pony meme. Later became a recurring character in an OriginalFlavour crossover [[AskAPony Ask Tumblr]] of DanVs called ''[[http://dan-vs-fim.tumblr.com/ "Dan Vs. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"]]'' and starred in her own mini-game called ''[[http://fav.me/d4rcb9h "GO FAST"]]''.[[/labelnote]] ** Fluffy pony drowns [[labelnote:explanation]] Fanart on [[ImageBoards a certain image board]] has inspired a flood of mini-fics about adorable but [[TooDumbToLive accident-prone]] pet fluffy ponies.[[/labelnote]] *** Fluffy pony abuse [[labelnote:explanation]]Said image board has since spawned numerous mini-fics involving rather ''disturbingly'' detailed slaughter and mistreatment of fluffy ponies, usually in the form of DisproportionateRetribution for the afformentioned stupidity. The most common form of abuse is the "Sorry Stick", an impromptu spanking device made from a thin rod of wood.[[/labelnote]] *** Now, let it be known that such stories has caused a bit of CreatorBacklash from Mixermike662, the creator of Fluffle Puff and the man who popularized the Fluffy Ponies concept to begin with. And by "Creator Backlash", ''they caused him to disown the fandom.'' *** Many of the fluffy pony abuse artists must have intentionally been drawing parallels to the development of [[WaddlingHead yukkuris]] as a meme in ''Memes/{{Touhou}}'' fandom. ** Fuzzy ponies [[labelnote:explanation]]A "follow-up" of sort to fluffy ponies, the original post involved Hasbro Biotoys inventing a successor species - much more durable, obedient, and intellligent than the fluffies. While the original post seriously toted their superiority, most posts involving fuzzy ponies discuss how ''boring'' they are in comparison to fluffy ponies, and how badly they would fail.[[/labelnote]] * Beep beep.

[[labelnote:explanation]]The manes of characters are made in a ponytail style. Possibly made simply because of how silly it looks when you [[VisualPun think about it.]][[/labelnote]] * Ponies drinking milkshakes through a straw, ever since the episode ''Bad Seed'' featured Sweetie Bell drinking one and [[CatSmile looking rather adorable]]. * Zodiac/horoscope ponies[[labelnote:explaination]]The Hub posted a [[https://www.facebook.com/hubtvnetwork/app_193183930806288 horoscope generator]] on its facebook with twelve original ponies representing the various signs of the horoscope. The fandom has fleshed all of them out further well beyond the original pictures.[[/labelnote]] * Sliding ponies[[labelnote:explanation]]A series of simple animations of many of the characters sliding into a box (think Maru the Cat). Has expanded greatly with takeoffs of that.[[/labelnote]] * Crotchboobs.[[labelnote:explanation]]Horses in real life have nipples close to their groin. Fan artists have taken this into account.[[/labelnote]] * >Implying.[[labelnote:explanation]]With several episodes in season 3 introducing the motion of "air quotes", GIFs of these with the tag ">Implying" have been made. Fan versions have also come about, though typically based on one with Lyra, leading to ">Implyra" and variants.[[/labelnote]] [[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:The Mane Cast]] [[AC:General]] [[AC:Twlight Sparkle]] * [[SpoofAesop Parodies of letters to Princess Celestia]], involving [[AccidentalAesop Accidental Aesops]] or snarky comments relevant to the episode or the characters. ---> (re: "Stare Master") "Dear Princess Celestia, I learned today that you do [[{{Determinator}} not]] [[PrecisionFStrike f*ck]] [[MamaBear with]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes Fluttershy]], ever.

"Yo, Twilight, I'm really happy for you, and I'ma let you finish, but Applejack is the best pony of all time!" * Oh God, Twilight's about to miss a deadline! RUN! [[labelnote:explanation]] During the Season 2 episode ''Lesson Zero'', Twilight Sparkle being the organization freak she is, becomes [[SanitySlippage increasingly unstable]] the further into the day she goes when a letter to Princess Celestia is due for sending. She eventually comes to the conclusion that if she can't find a friend's problem to fix as a friend, then she would have to [[NiceJobBreakingItHero create one]].

[[labelnote:explanation]]Twilight Sparkle's creepy greeting to the CMC in "Lesson Zero"[[/labelnote]] ** The face she made immediately before also gave rise to a lot of exploitable images. Not that the episode isn't already full of weird faces otherwise. * Twilight Snapple / Twilight Psycho [[labelnote:explanation]]In "Lesson Zero", Twilight begins to lose her grip on sanity, complete with creepy facial expressions, eventually coming to the point that it looks almost as if she's stalking the CMC.[[/labelnote]] * My Little Pet Twilight Sparkle [[labelnote:explanation]]A meme in a similar fashion to "Lyra wants hands" (See "Background Pony Memes"). It's about Twilight Sparkle wanting to be qualified as Rainbow Dash's pet. She's usually depicted with a leash to symbolize her "dedication". It came from [[http://youtu.be/i9hpX1SfPiQ a line]] in the episode "May the Best Pet Win" where Rainbow Dash explains to Twilight Sparkle why she can never be qualified to be her pet. Fan art examples so far: [[http://fav.me/d4hqgcy]] [[http://fav.me/d4goltr]][[http://fav.me/d4gz36x]][[http://fav.me/d4gpheo]] [[http://fav.me/d4h28x4]] [[http://fav.me/d4gqai6]] and also some Ask Tumblrs (see "Ask Tumblrs" under "Website Specific Memes") referencing the meme: [[http://friendlytwilight.tumblr.com/post/13070600493]][[http://askmlcblobs.tumblr.com/post/13157639594]][[/labelnote]] * Twilight [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Benes]].

From a line Tara Strong had said herself by popular request, this did not amuse a certain, [[Radio/TrueCapitalist Texan, capitalist]] who originated the line. * [[http://derpiboo.ru/tags/special-eyes Twilight's Special Eyes]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Based on a [[http://derpiboo.ru/147949?scope=scpe25dd8e0d7259f3590838dbd98ffdde858dd7dbe8 funny frame]] from the Season 3 premiere, where for a split second Twilight gains angry, googly eyes.[[/labelnote]] * Twilight is a murderer. [[labelnote:explanation]]In the episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E3TooManyPinkiePies "Too Many Pinkie Pies"]], Twilight dispatches the Pinkie clones the moment they look away from a wall of paint. The fact that she does this without hesitation as the clones practically explode into magical energy, and she said there was a risk of the same thing happening to the original Pinkie, led to cries of people calling her a murderer or "committing Pinkiecide". Debate still rages..[[/labelnote]]. * Twilight's new form. [[labelnote:explanation]]A two-panel exploitable taken from "Magical Mystery Cure" as the Mane Five react in shock for the first time to Twilight's new form. The second panel, in-show showing Twilight with her new wings, is altered to be everything from Rule 63 Twilight, Princess Big Macintosh, God from ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'', GabeNewell, and so on.[[/labelnote]] * "Everything is going to be fine." [[labelnote:explanation]]Following her change into an alicorn and subsequent coronation in "Magical Mystery Cure", Twilight says that "Everything is going to be fine". Given the BrokenBase reaction to Alicorn Twilight, several have taken this phrase, typically with the image of Alicorn Twilight, onto photos of great diasters, like the Hindenberg, noting how (to them) the show is TemptingFate.[[/labelnote]] * Twilight cat/twicat [[labelnote:explanation]] One user pointed out a scene in "Spike At Your Service" where Twilight seems to act like a cat thus leading to pictures of twilight acting like a cat and/or saying nya/meow [[/labelnote]] * Twiface [[labelnote:explanation]] In one scene in "Swarm of the Century", Twilight puts on a smug grin while doing an AsideGlance, [[http://derpiboo.ru/301243?scope=scpe8631dd2a77cc1e395723c6ba4aef15d90a5decd3 as seen here.]] [[/labelnote]] * [[http://derpiboo.ru/search?utf8=✓&sbq=twiscream&commit=Go Twiscream]] [[labelnote:explanation]]In one of the shots in the trailer for Equestria Girls, Twilight is seen having a FreakOut about her new human form.

When corrupted by Discord in "The Return of Harmony", however, she constantly lies, while doing the linked face. Has spawned a crapton of image macros; the captions usually border on SuspiciouslySpecificDenial.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84PZbL_-jjU Who's a Silly Pony?]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk5PbfpBJUI Who is, you is, Applejack!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Applejack is one of the rare characters in the series who comes from a previous series, in this case Generation 1 My Little Pony. G1 Applejack was a klutz to the extreme. In a UK My Little Pony audiobook, Applejack was introduced with this song to showcase her clumsy nature. Fans have since taken the song and attached it to scenes where Friendship Is Magic Applejack is being shown as acting weird.[[/labelnote]] * In ''The Return Of Harmony: Part II'', the shot of a smug Applejack bringing up Rarity's brief fling with "Tom" has been used by fans for various clever one-liners in image macros for different ways to one-up Rarity. * A minor, but interesting one: fans asking, "[[AlternateUniverseFic What if she decided to embrace sophistication when]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles staying with the Oranges in Manehattan?]]" The result: [[http://derpibooru.org/tags/orangejack Orangejack.]] ** Followed up when the episode "Too many Pinkie Pies" featured Twilight Sparkle testing out an "Apple to Orange" spell, but always being interrupted and hitting something other than the apple. [[http://bloody-vikings.deviantart.com/art/Apples-to-Oranges-338700813 The inevitable result.]] * Applejack's Episode. [[labelnote:explanation]]Applejack has had one feature episode since the beginning of the show, and a split ticket with a couple episodes, most commonly with Rarity. When the DVD ''The Friendship Express'' was revealed to contain an episode titled "The Last Roundup", the fans went nuts. When the episode's synopsis was released, revealing that Applejack was missing and the manes had to find her, the fans were less impressed. When the episode ''after'' was confirmed to be a truly Apple-Family-centric episode, the fans perked up again, and when Applejack actually appeared throughout all of ''The Last Roundup'' their ire disappeared completely.[[/labelnote]] ** And then the episode was remembered not for Applejack, but for a certain fan favorite background character appearing throughout the opener, and actually talking. At least the following episode mostly focused on AJ, though in the context of her family and, again, being partially upstaged by the characters of the week. * "Forget you, I can eat ALL these apples!" [[labelnote:explanation]]At a panel at the January 2012 Bronycon, fans convinced guest speaker Ashleigh Ball (the voice of Applejack) to quote the fan animation APPLE.MOV[[/labelnote]] * Appletroll [[labelnote:explanation]] At the end of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E15TheSuperSpeedyCiderSqueezy6000 "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000"]], Applejack proudly proclaims that she did not learn anything from the episode in her letter to Celestia. Since that means she never had a reason to send a letter, this led to people claiming that she was trolling Celestia. Her smug "haters gonna hate" trot while narrating said letter, followed by presumably going out to get wasted on [[FrothyMugsOfWater cider]] helps considerably.[[/labelnote]] * Babyapple/Babyjack saying "Ah'm Applejack. More apple fwitter?" [[labelnote:explanation]] The Season 3 episode "Apple Family Reunion" has a flashback scene of a baby Applejack saying this line in a [[CutenessProximity ridiculously adorable]] way.[[/labelnote]] * Applejack is the new Twilight Sparkle. [[labelnote:explanation]] One insightful viewer pointed out that, in season 3, Applejack is the ONLY member of the Mane 6 to have a speaking role in EVERY episode. Not even Twilight Sparkle has done so, leading to [[http://cheezburger.com/6928133888 this meme.]] Given the fact that in season 2, Applejack had very little screen time and dialogue compared to the rest of the Mane 6, it was a remarkable turnaround.[[/labelnote]] * The buck's a hand?! [[labelnote:explanation]] During the song "What My Cutie Mark is Telling Me" in the season 3 finale, Applejack says the line, "Could y'all give me a ''hand'' here and help me fix this mess?" Fan caught on to the error and reacted expectedly.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Pinkie Pie]] * [[GenkiGirl Everything]] [[CloudCuckoolander about]] [[SweetTooth Pinkie Pie]].

When the Mane 5 discover she ran before breakfast, Pinkie takes it rather personally.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgBZ_SnAuk4 "And that's how Equestria was made!"]] [[labelnote:explanation]] This is how Pinkie Pie ends her cutie mark story in "Cutie Mark Chronicles". While the Cutie Mark Crusaders brush it off as "Pinkie Pie being [[CloudCuckoolander Pinkie Pie]]", fans have joked that somehow, someway, Pinkie Pie really ''is'' responsible for the creation/foundation of Equestria. Others just joke that Pinkie would end her rendition of the Equestrian CreationMyth with "...and that's how I got my cutie mark!"[[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wu3j3Qh7sTE "The life of Pinkie Pie in 6 seconds"]] [[labelnote:explanation]] The Lonely Island's "Like a Boss" used to describe Pinkie Pie's life.

Do me!" (and she's unimpressed with the impersonation that follows). This led to the changeling in question being nicknamed Doomie by the fandom, and inspired a series of four-panel comics where Doomie transforms into Pinkie, but not exactly the [[Fanfic/{{Cupcakes}} Pinkie]] [[MyLittlePonyG3 she's]] [[WesternAnimation/{{MAD}} thinking]] [[PinkyAndTheBrain of]].[[/labelnote]] * Workout Pinkie [[labelnote:explanation]] Which is Pinkie in her aerobics clothes from "A Friend In Deed" is used on many random pictures and captions.

[[labelnote:explanation]] At the start of Pinkie Pie's stage show in "Over A Barrel", Rainbow Dash's wings are folded, but when PP appears in her show-girl outfit, RD's wings are spread. While it's easily seen as [[AccidentalInnuendo a small animation error or just a reaction of shock]], [[LesYay those who have a different idea]] on [[http://derpibooru.org/tags/wingboner what emotions wings express]] see this scene as [[SomethingElseAlsoRises a bit more telling]]. Notably, the Madmax comic came first, and just about anytime Rainbow Dash or another Pegasus has their wings spread, someone will shout "Wingboner!"[[/labelnote]] ** Often used in conjunction with the infamous POMF =3 meme as the sound effect for said. * Rainbow Dash's "So... ''awesome!"'' face now has an emoticon: /)^3^(\ %% (Hidden comment to prevent the backslash from being at the end of the line.) * Hate detected. Fire the Orbital Friendship Beam.

It inspired similar videos featuring Scootaloo, Cheerilee, Pinkie Pie, and Sweetie Belle, all of whom share names with G3 ponies.[[/labelnote]] * Rainbow Dash has balsa-wood wings. [[labelnote:explanation]]''The'' most common source of HurtComfortFic for this fandom is fanfic in which Rainbow Dash breaks her wings (which actually happens in the Canadian live show, though not onstage). It's reached the point where Equestria Daily has jokingly banned this sort of fic outright.[[/labelnote]] ** Zig-zagged during Season 2. At first her "Atomic Rainboom" scene (see above) essentially nullified all of them. Later during "May the Best Pet Win!", Dash gets the tip of one wing pinned under a boulder and later has to have it bandaged up after being freed. This either gave the fics some credibility again, or killed them off for good, depending on how you look at it (her wings ''aren't'' immune to damage, but she only needed a bandage after a ''boulder'' fell on one of them). In "Read it and Weep," she does in fact break a wing, giving the fics credibility again, but again she walks it off in under a week, and while she certainly wasn't happy about the incident she was more grumpy than "[[HurtComfortFic traumatized]]". * Rainbow Dash dyes her mane [[labelnote:explanation]]A fan art trend where Rainbow Dash is drawn dying her mane rainbow using either [[http://fav.me/d3enmqv a can of rainbow paint]] or [[http://fav.me/d4c8oc6 hair dye]] or [[http://fav.me/d3d30d0 bathing]] in a [[http://fav.me/d4fkplh pool of rainbow]] such as the ones seen on the episode "Sonic Rainboom".[[/labelnote]]. That this is possible is supported in the Magic Duel episode, wherein [[spoiler: Fluttershy is disguised as Rainbow Dash to make it appear that Twilight had successfully executed a Duplication spell.]] ** Even a ''fanfic'' was [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/05/story-terrible-secret.html written]] about it. ** A second fanfic followed, though [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7184406/1/Dashs_Secret it's not just Dash's natural color]] that's being hidden... * Fans are trying to make a meme out of Rainbow's face in "May the Best Pet Win!"

DESTROY!]] [[CatchPhrase SWAG!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]WebAnimation/PonyDotMov strikes again, this time with a malfunctioning RobotMe version of Rainbow Dash.[[/labelnote]] * Rainbow Dash will have a boyfriend in Season 3.

But it was promptly {{Jossed}} by Creator/LaurenFaust [[https://twitter.com/aweleczka/status/239527694583353344 here]] on Twitter.[[/labelnote]] * Rainbow Dash is Iceman. [[labelnote:explanation]] From [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]], where Dash finds herself in the unusual role of being the voice of reason to a hot-headed showoff pony who keeps breaking flight safety regulations to make herself look more awesome. Which, since the entire episode is a huge homage to ''Film/TopGun'', means that she's the Iceman to Lightning Dust's Maverick.[[/labelnote]] * Rainbow Dash bounces a ball.[[labelnote:explanation]] In "Read It and Weep" while Rainbow Dash is confined to a hospital bed there's a brief scene of her bouncing a ball against a wall. Several videos soon popped up extending this scene by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ugYlvsUrb8 increasing]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxZijeEOVag lengths]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vldFDvSx2xs of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTXl_gInSAM time]].[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Fluttershy]] * The Stare. [[labelnote:explanation]] Fluttershy's DeathGlare in "Stare Master" earned some infamy, with some fans joking she has [[OnePiece Haki]] or [[Anime/CodeGeass a Geass]], and contributes to her MemeticBadass reputation[[/labelnote]]. ** YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE ME! [[labelnote:explanation]]Fluttershy's FreakOut during "The Best Night Ever", the same scene that inspired the "Flutterage" meme, became memetic for being completely unexpected and ''terrifying''.

[[labelnote:explanation]] Stems from a conversation in "Over a Barrel" in which Pinkie Pie takes Rainbow Dash's sarcastic remark about Fluttershy being a tree at face value. Combined with Fluttershy's remark "I'd like to be a tree", it sparked a lot of half-joking debate as to whether or not Fluttershy is, in fact, a tree, or simply the pony equivalent of a furry. It also inspired a number of pictures of Fluttershy as a tree, often combined with the phrase "Leaf-ing the dream!" Much later, the ColdOpening of "Hurricane Fluttershy" has a scene in which Rainbow Dash addresses a tree as Fluttershy and said tree turns out to be Fluttershy trying to hide using a tree costume. Even later, [=WeLoveFine=] came out with [[TheMerch merchandise]] depicting Fluttershy as a tree or with a tree.[[/labelnote]] * In the episode "Green isn't Your Color", a shot of a magazine cover featuring a mopey-looking Fluttershy with black streaks in her hair inspired a brief burst of "[[http://www.ponibooru.org/post/list/emoshy/1 Emoshy]]" art. * Fluttershy is [[BlatantLies very loud.]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Most videos on youtube featuring Fluttershy (usually videos lasting less then 10 seconds) doing something that makes quiet noises (screaming, for example) will almost always have people complaining about how loud the video is, despite the truth being the opposite.[[/labelnote]] ** Tying into that, Fluttershy as the [[Franchise/TheElderScrolls Dovahkin]] is ''incredibly'' common. ** Alternatively, she's [[BlatantLies violent]]. ** Fluttershy is [[BlatantLies weak and helpless]]. [[labelnote:explanation]]In ''The Return of Harmony Part 1'', Discord attempts to get Fluttershy riled up in order to discord her, but Fluttershy instead fullheartedly and quietly agrees with everything he's saying about her, including that she's "weak and helpless", much to the hilarity of the fans who have seen her face dragons and manticores alike, [[StaringDownCthulhu staring down a]] [[DeadlyGaze cockatrice]], and many other awesome deeds. Many insist that she has [[HoistByHisOwnPetard trolled]] [[{{Troll}} Discord]]. A few videos on Youtube have Fluttershy saying she's weak and helpless, followed by a montage of her Moments of Awesome.[[/labelnote]] * Fightershy / Flutterninja / Flutterzangief. [[labelnote:explanation]]Fluttershy wrestling with a bear in "Lesson Zero" (even if she was actually giving it a chiropractic massage). It didn't take long for the ''StreetFighter'' and ''MortalKombat'' inspired [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/72192?search=fluttershy images]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKdHiYxTZn8 videos]] to come out[[/labelnote]] * Fluttershy's HiddenDepths. [[labelnote:explanation]] In the episode "Suited For Success" Fluttershy [[MotorMouth rather quickly]] points out the flaws in Rarity's dress (before quickly reverting to her usual timid self), despite not showing any obvious knowledge about dressmaking previously. This has been reused in fanfics, showing Fluttershy's HiddenDepths about pretty much everything she does, before going shy again and saying something along the lines of "But, you know, however you do it is fine..."[[/labelnote]] * Fluttershy crying over Philomena's DisneyDeath in "A Bird in the Hoof" inspired a string of pics in which she is seen watching a sad or touching scene (like the death of Disney/{{Bambi}}'s mother, the death of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Aerith]], or the ending of ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''). A less popular version is where she actually ''smiles'', basically watching anything to make her happy instead (or for those with a cruel sense of humor, something that starts out looking innocent, like the movie adaptation of ''WatershipDown'' or an episode of ''HappyTreeFriends''). ** Later expanded to manipulated images depicting ''any'' character reacting differently to ''anything'', such as Twilight enjoying an educational program like ''BillNyeTheScienceGuy'', Applejack being disgusted by a B-movie or reality TV , Rainbow Dash watching an action movie, Spike watching Anime/Sentai/ giant robot or monster shows, or Derpy Hooves watching something downright surreal. ** There briefly existed a variant with Pinkie Pie having phone calls with other characters, such as [[WesternAnimation/TheCritic Jay Sherman]], [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV Niko Bellic]] or [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Captain Picard]]. * Flutterjuice/Juiceboxshy. [[labelnote:explanation]]Originated in [[http://SorcerusHorserus.deviantart.com/art/Dash-Academy-2-Hot-Flank-Part4-257655358 this page]] of Webcomic/DashAcademy, a fancomic, and popularized by [[http://askfluttershyandpinkiepie.tumblr.com/ this Ask Tumblr]]. It's about Fluttershy's liking of juiceboxes.

Stems from Rarity's description of Fluttershy's attitude in ''"Putting Your Hoof Down"''[[/labelnote]] * Hootershy / Flutterack [[labelnote:explanation]]Anthropomorphised Fluttershy art tends to depict her with an abundant bustline, for any number of reasons ranging from an interpretation of her motherly instincts and {{Moe}} personality to AuthorAppeal.[[/labelnote]] ** Related to the above, Fluttersweater [[labelnote:explanation]]Anthro-Fluttershy tends to be a SweaterGirl.[[/labelnote]] * Futashy [[labelnote:explanation]]Drawing Fluttershy as a hermaphrodite.[[/labelnote]] * Fluttershy is an honorary Japanese. [[labelnote:explanation]]When fansubbed versions of the show began to show up on NicoNicoDouga, Japanese fans decided that Fluttershy's similarity to the YamatoNadeshiko archetype meant she was honorarily Japanese. Although mostly localized to Japan, a few articles and blogs have brought the meme to the attention of Western fans.[[/labelnote]] * Fluttershy confirmed for [[WorstWhateverEver worst pegasus]].[[labelnote:explanation]]Fluttershy's AcrophobicBird tendencies, especially when [[ForgotICouldFly she had to be saved from falling]] by Cloudchaser (another Pegasus) in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltsAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]].[[/labelnote]] * Bad Advice Fluttershy[[labelnote:explanation]]Coming from the [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW comic series]], one panel in the third issue has Fluttershy leaning out of a rounded frame, providing explanation what is going on off-panel. Stripping away the spoken text leaves a [[http://derpibooru.org/236811 perfect exploitable]] for Fluttershy to give bad advice, such as "[[http://derpibooru.org/236852 Always use Comic Sans]]".[[/labelnote]] * "Nature is so fascinating"[[labelnote:explanation]]Also from the comic, an exploitable of a weird or eerie natural thing, followed by the comic panel of Fluttershy looking on in awe, saying "Nature is so fascinating".[[/labelnote]] * Kyubeyshy[[labelnote:explanation]]When it was announced that EmiriKatou would voice Fluttershy in the Japanese dub, it started a wave of fanart depicting Fluttershy as Kyubey from Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica, which was one of the characters that Emiri Katou previously voiced.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Rarity]] * Dumb Rock! [[labelnote:explanation]] Said by Filly Rarity in "The Cutie Mark Chronicles" when her horn leads her to an apparently-ordinary rock.[[/labelnote]] * No one must ever know that I am part marshmallow! [[labelnote:explanation]] A shot of Rarity reaching towards the camera from "A Dog and Pony Show", with her hooves drawn in a way that they resemble marshmallows, inspired a string of jokes about Rarity actually being a marshmallow, much like "Fluttertree" and "Scootachicken". This, in turn, led to jokes about Rarity's sister Sweetie Belle being a marshmallow too. "Marshmallow pony" was eventually used by [[TheMerch WeLoveFine]] to refer to Rarity in the online description and tags of their ''Rarity Nouveau'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1646 art print]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1647 and]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1648 shirt]].[[/labelnote]] * THIIIIIS IIIIIIS WHIIIIINIIIIINNG!

It even has its own [[http://raritybeingdraggedtoherdestiny.tumblr.com/ Ask Tumblr blog]]. [[/labelnote]] * [[CargoShip Rarity x Tom OTP!]] [[labelnote:explanation]] In part 2 of the Season 2 premiere, Rarity continues to haul the rock around that Discord made her think was a ginormous diamond and named it Tom. [[/labelnote]] ** Dan the boulder. [[labelnote:explanation]] Prior to part two, the boulder was dubbed "Dan" by fans due to Youtube captions, the same way Steven Magnet was named. When part two aired and Rarity named him Tom, people compromised and decided his name was Tom Dan, and made him a MemeticBadass for good measure. [[/labelnote]] ** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EiPy2woAZE4 "Look Out! Here Comes Tom!"]] [[labelnote:explanation]] A scene with Tom hurled out of a window resulted in jokes of him being replaced with anyone else named Tom.]] [[/labelnote]] ** After "Too Many Pinkie Pies", some fans said Tom was the "Guardian of the Mirror" after a large boulder was used to block the path to the Mirror Pool. * is the... WORST... ''POSSIBLE''...''' ''THING!'' ''' [[labelnote:explanation]] Rarity being a hammy drama queen in "Lesson Zero"]] [[/labelnote]] * "I'll show you something worthy of Canterlot!" [[labelnote:explanation]] From "Sweet and Elite", after Rarity gets ridiculed by some upper-class ponies for being "country", she retreats to her suite at Canterlot castle, says this line, and whips up a design for Twilight's new dress. It inspired a meme where Rarity says her line, and is shown to draw something silly, then react to it with delight or disgust as appropriate. [[/labelnote]] * Rarity is Jewish. [[labelnote:explanation]] Amongst the many drawings of ponies doing Christmas activities, the fans have decided - for unclear reasons, but possibly based on either the accent used by [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E5SisterhoovesSocial their mother]] or an old ReligiousStereotype about tailors or jewelers being Jewish - to have Rarity and Sweetie Belle celebrate Hanukkah. One Equestria Daily banner even shows them playing dreidel with Pinkie Pie and losing heavily.]] [[/labelnote]] * Rarity's newspaper reaction. [[labelnote:explanation]] A three panel image exploitable, based on Rarity reading the school paper in "Ponyville Confidential". The top and bottom shots are of Rarity reading the paper intently, and a shocked reaction, but the order may change to justify the joke around the middle panel. Also has been used as "implied facehoof" reaction images, as at one point, Rarity's look while holding the newspaper is similar to TommyLeeJones' character in NoCountryForOldMen as blunt non-vocal criticism of a stupid idea. [[/labelnote]] * Bend over [[labelnote:explanation]]Rarity being depicted as a MemeticMolester often telling others to "bend over".[[/labelnote]] * Anaface Rarity. [[labelnote:explanation]] A picture of Rarity scoring a 0/10 on the Anaface web program plus a negative reaction has become popular. Showing other characters (such as Derpy, Tom or Pinkie) who get a higher score on the program in addition to her reaction has become mildly memetic. [[/labelnote]] * Rarity vs. a [[GiantEnemyCrab Giant Crab.]] [[labelnote:explanation]] Similar to the Trixie eating pinecones thing, a Deviantart user asked for several pictures of Rarity fighting a giant crab. He got them. [[/labelnote]] [[AC:Spike]] * Tailboner. [[labelnote:explanation]]The same thing as a wingboner, but for Spike's tail.[[/labelnote]] ** Pictures of Spike using his tail for digging from "A Dog And Pony Show" with the caption "[[Series/{{Community}} I have the weirdest boner right now]]." * Spike is quickly becoming identified as a stoner. [[labelnote:explanation]]Similarly to the Bedroom Eyes meme above, the RunningJoke of someone pausing a clip of an episode and seeing Spike with an expression of someone with cannabinoid intoxication. That, and his portrayal in later WebAnimation/PonyDotMov episodes.[[/labelnote]] * Lame Pickup Line Spike.

You're the new Rainbow Dash!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]In part 2 of the Season 2 premiere, Rainbow Dash is missing and thus they have no Element of Loyalty. Twilight, who is stressed out and in a hurry, gives Spike the Element of Loyalty necklace and says he's the "new Rainbow Dash".[[/labelnote]] ** "That won't end well..." [[labelnote:explanation]]Right after Twilight makes Spike the new Rainbow Dash, he's afraid of what will happen to him once Rainbow Dash finds out. This has led to various images of what would happen when [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/63085 Rainbow Dash finally does confront him on the matter.]][[/labelnote]] ** Pega-Spike [[labelnote:explanation]]Spike transformed into a Pegasus has appeared in many fanarts and at least one fanfic, starting from back in season 1. More recent fanart naturally depicts his Pegasus version as a recolor of Rainbow Dash, thanks to the previous meme.[[/labelnote]] * And then Spike died. [[labelnote:explanation]]Early on in Luna Eclipsed, Rainbow Dash scares Pinkie, Spike and some fillies with her lightning cloud. Spike promptly passes out, and is carried off by Twilight; because of his shaking and drooling, nearly every online chat about the episode will invariably include a "Spike died." comment.[[/labelnote]] * Spike is the new main character. [[labelnote:explanation]]Until "Sweet and Elite", Spike had appeared in more episodes of Season 2 than Twilight Sparkle, who was missing from "Sisterhooves Social", and was only one of two characters (the other, humorously enough, being Applejack) to appear in every season 2 episode up to that point. This meme has since become heavily ironic as Spike hasn't appeared on the show reqularly since "Hearth's Warming Eve."[[/labelnote]] * Spike is unemployed. [[labelnote:explanation]] The response to Spike becoming more and more OutOfFocus as the show goes on, mainly considering that he no longer writes letters to Princess Celestia, and the characters just dictate the moral of the episode in a narrative voice instead. [[/labelnote]] * SPIKE WANT! [[labelnote:explanation]]In "Secret of My Excess", Spike goes into a rapid growth spurt and displays the infamous dragon greed. As he gets bigger, his speech gradually devolves into yelling [[HulkSpeak "SPIKE WANT!"]].[[/labelnote]] ** Run! It's Spikezilla! [[labelnote:explanation]]Also from "Secret of My Excess", Spike's form at his peak size drew a lot of comparisons to the American version of ''Film/{{Godzilla}}''.[[/labelnote]] * Spike's Business Card [[labelnote:explanation]]From "Spike At Your Service", Spike holds up a card containing his personal Dragon Code, making it a perfect exploitable.[[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:The Cutie Mark Crusaders]] [[AC:General]] * Photoshopping fake cutie marks onto the Cutie Mark Crusaders. (Bonus points if it's the cutie marks belonging to the previous generation versions of the Crusaders.) * The Sex Pit [[labelnote:explanation]]The Crusaders' solution to the problem they caused in ''Hearts and Hooves Day'' involved getting Big Macintosh to fall into a deep pit they dug with a matress at the bottom. The fun here comes in the form of shopping in other characters and/or altering the Crusaders' reactions. The fact that Cheerilee called it a feather bed only gave the meme more credibility when the word feather was implied to be a PrecisionFStrike in Putting Your Hoof Down.[[/labelnote]] * Crusader [=4koma/Reaction=] Crusaders [[labelnote:explanation]]Also from ''Hearts and Hooves Day'', the Crusader's faces when they're hiding in a bush [[http://img.ponibooru.org/_images/31a77fcb71dfde351154b541be329923/130372%20-%20apple_bloom%20Cutie_Mark_Crusaders%20gaijin_4koma%20hearts_and_hooves_day%20Reaction_guys%20scootaloo%20Sweetie_Belle.png bears more than a passing resemblance to the Gaijin 4koma/Reaction Guys meme]].[[/labelnote]] * '''CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS, (ADD SOMETHING,) YAY!!!!!'''[[labelnote:explanation]]Their normal catchphrase. However, fans make up something to add between "Cutie Mark Crusaders" & "yay!"[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Apple Bloom]] * ONE. DAY. [[labelnote:explanation]]in "Sisterhooves Social", Apple Bloom lets Sweetie Belle borrow Applejack for the contest, but makes sure she understands it's only temporary. This line [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1230 made it onto]] an [[TheMerch officially licensed shirt]] in less than a week after the episode's premiere.[[/labelnote]] * Applecopter. [[labelnote:explanation]]In "The Cutie Pox", one of Apple Bloom's loop-de-hoop tricks involves spinning the hoop around her tail fast enough that she takes off like a helicopter.[[/labelnote]] * "[[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/My_Sister%27s_Speaking_in_x/1 My Sister's Speaking [X]!]]" [[labelnote:explanation]]A snowclone spawned from another scene in "The Cutie Pox", where Apple Bloom gets a fleur-de-lis cutie mark that causes her to compulsively speak French, to which a baffled and horrified Applejack remarks "My sister's speakin' Fancy!" This scene inspired a few comics where Apple Bloom is forced to speak in other "languages", such as Chinese, British English, "Internet", Wingdings, and [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Daedric]].[[/labelnote]] ** Gangsta Bloom [[labelnote:explanation]]The fleur-de-lis is also the gang sign of [[SaintsRow the 3rd Street Saints]]. This has not passed the fans by.[[/labelnote]] * Apple Dictionary [[labelnote:explanation]]Like Sweetie Belle before her, in ''Family Appreciation Day'', it's Apple Bloom's turn to be called a dictionary following her lamentations about Granny Smith representing her family on the eponymous day.[[/labelnote]] * Bunny Bloom [[labelnote:explanation]]Apple Bloom wears a rabbit suit in Family Appreciation Day. The fans think it makes her [[RuleOfCute extremely]] [[{{Moe}} cute]].[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Scootaloo]] * Scootabuse [[labelnote:explanation]]When asked whether Scootaloo is Rainbow Dash's little sister Creator/LaurenFaust said no, stating that Dash would not be a good big sister. Some fans took this a little too far, which resulted in various fanarts depicting Rainbow Dash physically abusing Scootaloo, some more gruesome than others. On the other hand, [[http://mixermike622.deviantart.com/art/You-re-The-Best-244020273 this comic]] strongly suggests that Rainbow Dash doesn't necesarily need to be [[AbusiveParents the one doing the abusing.]] It also, however, leads us right into...[[/labelnote]] ** Scootalove [[labelnote:explanation]]Formed as a reaction to Scootabuse, consisting of ''heartwarming'' fanart and fanfics about Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo. This has, in turn, led to such things as "[=ScootaBDSM=]" and other bizarre images.[[/labelnote]] ** Not really ''confirmed'' {{Jossed}}, but the ending to "Sleepless in Ponyville" seems to imply that Scootalove is the canon relationship between the two as of now. * Scootachicken [[labelnote:explanation]]Apple Bloom calling Scootaloo a chicken in "Stare Master" inspired a lot of jokes about Scootaloo being a ''literal'' chicken, and even led to [[TheMerch officially licensed shirts]] featuring [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1194-3428.jpg Scootaloo]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1194-3429.jpg as]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1196-3433.jpg a]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/img/p/1196-3434.jpg chick]] and [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1503 Scootaloo with a chicken (and Winona)]]. This meme is sometimes combined with "Scootabuse", depicting Kentucky Fried Scootaloo and Scootaloo-flavored ramen noodles.[[/labelnote]] ** Pinkie Pie dressing up as a chicken for Nightmare Night spawned a few more jokes about this. ** Scootadodo [[labelnote:explanation]]And ''then'' jokes emerged of Scootaloo being a dodo, after a clip from the season 2 premiere was posted in which Sweetie Belle calls Scootaloo a dodo.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Sweetie Belle]] * Sweetieabuse. [[labelnote:explanation]]In much the same way as Scootabuse, Sweetie Belle isn't immune to being treated badly by her sister. Various fanart depicts her as actually being an illegitimate child of Rarity's by whom she's very embarrassed. She's also depicted as being a [[TheDitz ditz]] and living in a cupboard under the stairs.[[/labelnote]] ** Sweetie Poo. [[labelnote:explanation]]A far more [[ToiletHumor immature]] and [[NauseaFuel gross]] variation of Sweetie abuse. In addition to being a [[TheDitz ditz]], Sweetie is presented as being incontinent, and uncontrollably defecating in large quantities.[[/labelnote]] * Sweetie Derelle. [[labelnote:explanation]]Another unflattering depiction of Sweetie Belle being an extremely loud annoying sibling - specifically, a picture of her shouting a long string of capit[[InterruptingMeme AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA]]l A's is used to flag threads with {{NSFW}} content.

The quote comes from Sweetie Belle's original reaction in being forcefully offered a raggedy old doll named "Smarty Pants" by a crazy Twilight. ** Has since expanded to a response to just about anything. * It's becoming popular to post various images inside Sweetie Belle's thought bubble in "Sisterhooves Social". * Sweetie Slide/Scootie Belle [[labelnote:explanation]]A scene from Sisterhooves Social where Sweetie [[http://crunchnugget.deviantart.com/art/Scootie-Belle-267558044 slides across the floor]] using her hind legs.

[[labelnote:explanation]]A recurring joke whenever a Pony thinks they'll be punished by Celestia, or adding it on like it's a threat to a bird like Philomena, all due to the fact [[NeverLiveItDown she banished Luna to the moon]]. It's also considered her go-to solution when things don't work for her.[[/labelnote]] *** Taken UpToEleven in the fanimation ''FriendshipIsMagicBitch'', which also spawned a few more memes: **** "Do you like bananas? So, you're a bitch that likes bananas? Well, that's great. Cause you 'bout to GO bananas! On the MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONAAAAAAAA! [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch BEE-YETCH!]]" [[labelnote:explanation]]in said fanimation, Princess Celestia asks the ponies who come to complain about her rule if they like bananas, [[DisproportionateRetribution then sends them all to the moon regardless of their answer.]] Including [[TheWoobie her sister.]] The line "do you like MMMMMMM bananas?" has since made it onto an official [[TheMerch shirt]], ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/2117-do-you-like-bananas.html Do You]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/2129-do-you-like-bananas.html Like Bananas?]]''[[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:extra note]]She also likes to get her bananas from Publix, a grocery store chain centered in Florida that had been featured in previous cartoons by the animator.[[/labelnote]] *** There's also a variant which involves being "banished to season 2". ** Princess Molestia [[labelnote:explanation]]Slightly less common is [[MemeticMolester depicting Celestia as acting HIGHLY inappropriate]] with Twilight, Luna, and others. She even got [[http://askprincessmolestia.tumblr.com/ her own "ask" blog]].[[/labelnote]] ** Princess Momlestia [[labelnote:explanation]]Recent trend on derpibooru, depicting Celestia hugging other ponies and acting toward them like a mother, usually with Twilight, but. Other pictures also show just what happens when her subjects are threatened, especially Twilight. [[MamaBear The aftermath is ''not'' pretty.]] [[/labelnote]] *** And on a similar note, "Your Momjesty!"

[[labelnote:explanation]]Snowclone of "No one man should have all that power" (the refrain from KanyeWest's also-memetic "Power"), related to expressing doubt in Celestia's rule. Likely introduced by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Tjb14VoWjg this fan video's intro]] - there's also a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8luNcDxQ0Uc side-by-side comparison]] with the original video, for the curious.[[/labelnote]] * Cakelestia [[labelnote:explanation]]"Ponyville Confidential" shows a picture of Celestia gorging herself on cake, and "MMMystery on the Friendship Express" shows her licking her lips while looking expectantly at a cake.

This single picture caused some ponies to claim that Luna had joined TheDarkSide[[note]]...[[Music/PinkFloyd of the Moon]][[/note]] and is now a [[StarWars Sith Lord]]. ** Along the same lines, the leaked episode synopsis rekindled interest in the [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse "Where My Woona!?"]] meme, seeing as she's finally making an appearance in the show proper since the whole Nightmare Moon incident. * '''"[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0WDNnxInFM THIS IS THE TRADITIONAL ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE!!!]]"''' [[labelnote:explanation]]Luna's explanation in ''Luna Eclipsed'' for why she speaks in such a [[NoIndoorVoice loud booming voice]].

[[labelnote:explanation]]The direct opposite of the above.[[/labelnote]] ** Redo the fanon! [[labelnote:explanation]]A call to all fans to redo their fanwork to match Canon Luna. Some, like the comic that started the "BLEEEEH ALFALFA MONSTER" meme, have already been redone in the [[http://egophiliac.deviantart.com/art/we-are-not-amused-264700507 Traditional Royal Canterlot Voice]]. The Luna tumblr accounts also immediately adapted it.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/74687 Trollestia did it!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Fans who really did not expect Luna's behavior in said episode already found a target to jokingly blame it on.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/luna_ducreux/1 Luna Ducreux]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Spawned from the Joseph Ducreux meme where famous catch phrases and memes are translated into Old English.

Phrases used are often brony memes such as phrases from the show or other brony memes.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bW-xCFqxLQ&feature=related Luna]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvqmNNeGTVU&feature=related Dance]] [[labelnote:explanation]]A gif of happy young Luna dancing to moon-related music on the moon, spawned by an attempt to explain what she did for 1000 years.[[/labelnote]] * Luna is friggen' useless. [[labelnote:explanation]]Luna was conspicuously absent during the battle sequence from [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding]], despite even Celestia engaging in combat. Many a fan took note, and wondered just what she was [[http://derpiboo.ru/17063 doing at the time]].[[/labelnote]] ** Counterpoint: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrpXtoPauXY Luna]] [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/luna_punch/1 PUNCH!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]A few frames of Luna rearing back threateningly got edited into her decking Chrysalis as an alternate ending to A Canterlot Wedding. This being the Internet, she soon moved on to punching various other characters from different shows.[[/labelnote]] * Gamer Luna. [[labelnote:explanation]]Depicting Luna as an avid video game player.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://askgamerluna.tumblr.com/ It even has a Tumblr!]] * From the season 2 finale, "Hello everypony. Did I miss anything?" ** The above is typically used whenever someone knowingly joins a conversation after some semi-interesting event has happened, considering what she missed in those two episodes. -->'''User A:''' Man, I'm glad we finally got rid of that troll. -->'''User B:''' Hello everypony. Did I miss anything? -->'''User A:''' Did you miss anything!? You missed a troll raid! --> And so on. * "You're my favorite princess!" [[labelnote:explanation]]Pipsqueak says this to Luna during the episode ''Luna Eclipsed''. The sentence has gained popularity. Though typically used to refer to Luna, "X is my favorite princess" is occasionally used to describe Celestia, Cadance or even other characters that are sometimes not princesses at all (just like "X is best pony" is occasionally used for non-ponies).[[/labelnote]] * "LUNA IS BEST FREDDY KRUEGER!"[[labelnote:explanation:]]After "Sleepless in Ponyville" established that part of Luna's repertoire included visiting people in their dreams, comments were made comparing Luna to a benevolent version of Freddie Krueger (in that she is protecting people in their dreams instead of killing them)[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Cadence/[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Cadance]]]] * [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/cadence%20guessing_game/1 Princess Cadence is X]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Based on the season 2 finale's second synopsis ''[[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/03/episode-synopsis-announcement-canterlot.html "Twilight discovers a dark secret about Cadence right before the wedding"]]''. It's an exploitable meme which contains a picture of Princess Cadence to the left, an equal sign in the middle, and a random picture to the right, implying that the other picture is somehow related to Cadence and/or has something to do with her dark secret.[[/labelnote]] * Just roll with it. [[labelnote:explanation]]After a massive buildup over months and months of wondering how the show would introduce a new winged unicorn to the show's pantheon, it wasn't that big a deal during and after the show aired.[[/labelnote]] * Throwing Cadance/Epic wife tossing. [[labelnote:explanation]]During the climax of the Season 3 premiere, Shining Armor "helps" Cadance take off to fly and retrieve the Crystal Heart [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsmJ81SXE4M by throwing her at it.]] [[https://i.chzbgr.com/completestore/12/11/16/5hEJ4OdCs0iodu1wlOJMZA2.gif Fans had a field day with it.]][[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] [[folder:Villains]] [[AC:General]] * [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/faster_cheaper/1 Faster, cheaper!]] [[labelnote:explanation]][[ConArtist The Flim-Flam Brothers]] shut off the quality control of their machine to make a profit, resulting in a series of minicomics where they turn something into a [[TakeThat cheap, mass-produced alternative]].[[/labelnote]] * Swiss Cheese Legs [[labelnote:explanation]]The holes in the legs of Queen Chrysalis and the other changelings look like... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin yeah.]][[/labelnote]] ** Queen Swissalis [[labelnote:explanation]]Ditto.[[/labelnote]] * "X is a Changeling!" [[labelnote:explanation]] A RunningGag among the fandom for when more than one of the same background pony appeared at the same time. [[/labelnote]] * An image of a pig wearing Diamond Tiara's tiara after the latter falls into a mud pit in "One Bad Apple" has led to representation of DT by a pig wearing a tiara. [[AC:Trixie]] * Trixie wears her heart on her cloak. [[labelnote:explanation]]Almost every shipping fic with Trixie has one of the Mane Cast salvage and repair her hat and cloak as a romantic gesture. The hat and cloak themselves are usually described as either an inheritance from an adored family member, or things Trixie made herself with her magic when she first started her show, and almost always have some sentimental value for Trixie, regardless if the fic is shipping or not.[[/labelnote]] ** Rarity is a [[TheFashionista fashionista]] cupid. [[labelnote:explanation]]Tied in with the meme directly above, if the character Trixie is being shipped with isn't Rarity, the one she is being shipped with will have talked Rarity into fixing the hat and cloak for them to give to Trixie.[[/labelnote]] * Trixie's favorite food is pinecones. [[labelnote:explanation]]A brony by the name of Bronymike spent quite a lot of time requesting art of Trixie eating pinecones. [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/37651 He]] [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/38577 got]] [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/37988 it.]][[/labelnote]] * [[http://youtu.be/fXazWMZBRB0 TrixieYes.mp4]] [[labelnote:explanation]][[http://fav.me/d4fw3x1 A looping animation]] of Trixie dancing to the song "[[http://youtu.be/I25YWZWLLEU Fancy Footwork]]" with the words "WHAT NOW?" on top. It's based on a Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} meme known as "[[http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=wh4t+now&aq=f WH4T NOW?]]".[[/labelnote]] * Trixie doesn't trust wheels. [[labelnote:explanation]]In "Magic Duel", Trixie makes Snips and Snails pull her personal chariot; when they ask why the chariot lacks wheels, she (likely due WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity induced by the Alicorn Amulet, or because she was DrunkOnTheDarkSide and lying to make their lives harder for spite) answers "The Great and Powerful Trixie doesn't trust wheels. Now pull faster!" This led quite a few bronies to create art of Trixie demonstrating her distrust, or of whatever incident from Trixie's past that caused her to distrust wheels.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Discord]] * Discord dancing on Twilight's head seems to have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG35VKg62GA swiftly]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_yDBWBTAHw become]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OftxXnd4yK8 one]]. (And now, people can [[http://www.discodiscord.com make their own.]]) It didn't take long for a piece of fananimation showing the real Discord doing that dance, either. Then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrUxaSaJFXc this.]] * [=DisQord=]. [[labelnote:explanation]]Discord was voiced by John de Lancie, who also voiced Q in various ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series, and the character was heavily inspired by Q as well, resulting in this FanNickname. ''Star Trek''/''MLP'' mashups were also inevitable following the first episode.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://youtu.be/45vW4-B-yRY Chocolate milk of glass]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Discord filling a glass with chocolate milk, and then drinking the glass.[[/labelnote]] ** Exploding chocolate milk of glass / [[VideoGame/{{Portal2}} Combustible Chocolate Milk]] [[labelnote:explanation]]From the same scene, after Discord drinks the glass, he throws away the cylinder of chocolate milk, which [[MadeOfExplodium explodes offscreen]].[[/labelnote]] [[AC:King Sombra]] * Lord Donut Steel[[labelnote:Explanation]]Sombra's fan-given nickname before his official name was revealed. A play on "Do not steal", a phrase often mockingly used in relation to Original Characters (since many fans have complained King Sombra looks like a bad fanmade character).[[/labelnote]] ** Has also been extended into Lord Donut Steel Of The Sombrero Republic. * King Sombrero[[labelnote:Explanation]]A play on his name, "Sombra".[[/labelnote]] * Sombra X stairs = OTP[[labelnote:Explanation]]King Sombra had levels upon levels of stairs in his castle, leading some to wonder whether he had a peculiar love for stairs in general.[[/labelnote]] ** Alternately, King Sombra ''loves'' [[http://cheezburger.com/6762610688 Slinkies.]] * King Sombra can't speak properly.[[labelnote:Explanation]]King Sombra had very few speaking lines in the episode, and his peculiar voice makes them difficult to decipher.[[/labelnote]] * GAK[[labelnote:Explanation]]Recurring commercials for a toy named Gak during the Season 3 premiere (and by "recurring", we mean "at one point airing four times in a row") led to King Sombra being memetically associated with this toy and the word GAK in general.[[/labelnote]] ** GAK got more screentime than King Sombra[[labelnote:Explanation]]A joke contrasting the prevalence of the commercial with to the meager screentime the villain received.[[/labelnote]] * "Still a better villain than Sombra."[[labelnote:Explanation]]King Sombra is commonly accused of being a GenericDoomsdayVillain with no real character to speak of. Taken to extremes when minor antagonists who aren't actually villainous are said to be better villains than Sombra.[[/labelnote]] ** Combining two above memes, we get "Still more screentime than Sombra." [[/folder]] [[folder:Minor Characters]] [[AC:General]] * "Who is responsible for subjecting our eyes to these... horrors?" [[labelnote:explanation]]From Hoity Toity's reaction to the first batch of dresses in "Suited for Success", this is the standard response to BrainBleach moments.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/42188 Sapphire Shores' reaction to Rarity's latest design]] in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipisMagicS1E19ADogAndPonyShow A Dog and Pony Show]]" and [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/31548 Pinkie Pie's family having a smile fit]] in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles The Cutie Mark Chronicles]]" have become parallels to [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/reaction-guys-gaijin-4koma the reaction guys]] in the fandom. * [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Soarin' loves pie]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Soarin' of the Wonderbolts was shown in "The Best Night Ever" (his first, and so far only, speaking or named appearance) to be a BigEater, and since the food he bought and ate in that episode was a pie, the fandom decided that pie is his TrademarkFavoriteFood.[[/labelnote]] * The Most Interesting Pony In The World [[labelnote:explanation]]Fancypants from "Sweet and Elite" impressed a lot of fans by being classy without being stuck-up, earning a number of comparisons to Advertising/TheMostInterestingManInTheWorld.[[/labelnote]] * Madame Jubilee [[labelnote:explanation]]Cherry Jubilee, from "The Last Roundup" runs a cherry orchard in a western-themed town called Dodge Junction. Her business-attitude, SouthernBelle accent, and constant bedroom-eyes have led to her being compared to a brothel madame.[[/labelnote]] * When you give a minotaur X [[labelnote:explanation]]Iron Will [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVi6etwqbNY loves]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaN1zE3P650 to]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fx9RiZIPLjU get]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEerpLvNMxo down]].[[/labelnote]] * Daring Do cover arts [[labelnote:explanation]]An art trend where artists make their own cover arts for the fictional Daring Do franchise. Usually comes in two flavors: the usual book cover format and comic book (complete with fake publisher logos, price tag, and a random issue number).[[/labelnote]] * '''YEAH!''' [[labelnote:explanation]]The huge muscled, tiny winged white pegasus (FanNickname of Roid Rage or [[SpaceMutiny Big McLargehooves]]) popping up to deliver this line with enthusism throughout "Hurricane Fluttershy". Sometimes combined with the [[Series/CSIMiami]] GlassesPull meme.[[/labelnote]] * Peepingweight [[labelnote:explanation]]Featherweight, a shutterbug pegasus introduced in "Ponyville Confidential" looking through a cellar window or into the spa with camera at the ready, followed by a candid image.[[/labelnote]] * Everypony is gay for Braeburn [[labelnote:explanation]] Braeburn is a cowboy-like pony who lives in a very Wild West inspired town. His {{Keet}}ness made him incredibly popular almost instantly. Additionally, he is most often seen shipped with other male ponies (mostly Big Macintosh or Soarin'). Probably a reference to BrokebackMountain and/or the GuiltyGear "Bridget" meme..[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Shining Armor]] * "TWILY!!!"[[labelnote:explanation]]Shining Armor's nickname for Twilight Sparkle. Has become somewhat of a meme for people to quote it in livestream chat or during reaction videos when Shining Armor appears onscreen.[[/labelnote]] * Shining Armor has horn herpes.[[labelnote:explanation]]King Sombra blocked Shining Armor's magic by implanting dark crystals onto his horn. The penis jokes practically wrote themselves.[[/labelnote]] * Shining Armor: Wife Tosser / [[http://derpiboo.ru/tags/epic-wife-tossing Epic Wife Tossing]] [[labelnote:explanation]]In the second part of the season three premiere, Shining Armor performs a FastballSpecial, with his wife Cadance serving as the ball.[[/labelnote]] * [[SandInMyEyes Liquid pride]]. [[labelnote:explanation]]When Twilight Sparkle was crowned as a princess, Shining Armor started crying. He tried to downplay his tears as "liquid pride" when Twilight asked about them. As a result, "liquid pride" immediately became a fan euphemism for ManlyTears.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Photo Finish]] * Photo Finish from "Green Isn't Your Color" is another FountainOfMemes. "It iz time to make... ''de magicks!''" * Even her X is graceful! [[labelnote:explanation]]A snowclone that shows up on videos of Fluttershy doing something cute, funny, or both. Inspired by Photo Finish's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIjUMxEbJ3U "Even her sneezes are graceful!"]] remark in "Green Isn't Your Color"; thus, it's frequently typed in a bad German FunetikAksent.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Big Macintosh]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vht4dWEaV8s "Eeyup".]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Big Macintosh's CatchPhrase is used to reply to pretty much anything, be it in response to CaptainObvious, a sarcastic reply, or genuine agreement.[[/labelnote]] * [[CargoShip Big Mac x Smarty Pants OTP!]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Near the end of Lesson Zero, after everyone reverts to normal from the spell that Twilight Sparkle placed on the Smarty Pants doll, Big Mac notices the discarded doll and takes it for himself.[[/labelnote]] ** Big Macintosh is a brony.

This has led to some fans joking Bon Bon is actually a talented voice actress who keeps changing the way she sounds in order to keep her skills sharp.[[/labelnote]] * "[[[FanNickname PONY]]] [TOY NAME]" / "[TOY NAME] [[[FanNickname PONY]]]" [[labelnote:explanation]]Since the release of the blind bag toys that resemble the background ponies, some fans have adopted the toy names as their second names. Be it their surname, first name, or even their secret real name in [[http://tinyurl.com/7sbsrtu Carrot Top's case]].[[/labelnote]] ** Examples of name combinations are Lyra Heartstrings (which has since become AscendedFanon), Blues Noteworthy or Noteworthy Blues, Rose's full name being Roseluck and Berryshine "Berry" Punch. ** One that happened afterwards is Trixie--who is named in the show--being officially given the surname Lulamoon in the fifth wave after the fourth wave infamously called her just Lulamoon. * "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sob1t-iUCmE Epic Wub Time]]", an original video where Octavia and [=DJ P0N-3=]/Vinyl Scratch are depicted as OddCouple roommates.

''How is this my life?!'' * Octo Octavia/Octotavia [[labelnote:explanation]]In a similar vein to sea pony Lyra, an art trend where Octavia is depicted as an "[[MixAndMatchCritters octopus pony]]". It started out as a simple pun to Octavia's name and its comparison to the word "octopus" and one of the nicknames that is often used by fans: "Octi/Octie/Octy" which is similar in name to [[ThePowerpuffGirls Bubbles']] stuffed octopus. Its inspiration came from a {{Vocaloid}} meme where one of the [=Vocaloid=] characters (Luka Megurine) is depicted as an octopus head known as "[[http://vocaloid.wikia.com/wiki/Tako_Luka Tako Luka]]". The art trend was started by John Joseco[[http://lovetomorrowlove.tumblr.com/post/13645767129]][[http://fav.me/d4hzpxl]]. Other artists soon followed.[[http://datcatwhatdances.tumblr.com/post/13657386652]][[http://askmlcblobs.tumblr.com/post/13665195438]][[http://slugboxponies.tumblr.com/post/13654949396]][[http://allthecrookedtrees.tumblr.com/post/13703553871]][[http://fav.me/d4hvs6g]][[/labelnote]] * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3X_pFcBwtE Crackle]] is best dragon! [[labelnote:explanation]] Crackle, a one-shot gag character that looks a ''lot'' like Rarity's PaperThinDisguise dragon costume, has since become something of a memetic character due to its bizarre appearance.[[/labelnote]] * Background pony copies are actually changelings! [[labelnote:explanation]] Now that "A Canterlot Wedding" is out, people have designed this as an explanation for "clones" of background characters.[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Derpy Hooves]] * [[MemeticBystander Derpy Hooves]]. [[labelnote:explanation]] One pegasus in the background in episode 1 appeared cockeyed. In short order she was given a FanNickname and associated with mail and the postal service. She's also been given an obsession with muffins (based on a dreamy exclamation of "muffin" in "Applebuck Season" which [[BeamMeUpScotty may or may not have been said by her]]), a unicorn daughter named Dinky, the ability to do anything [[AchievementsInIgnorance provided she forgets that it should be impossible]], a friendship with another background pony known as "Carrot Top", and a bad habit of raiding Carrot Top's refrigerator ("[[Webcomic/CarrotCakeStorybook I emptied your fridge]]" has become a meme in itself).[[/labelnote]] ** Creator/LaurenFaust [[AscendedMeme said in response]] "she can be Derpy if everyone likes", and she showed up as a delivery pony in "Feeling Pinkie Keen". ** Derpy Hooves became [[AscendedMeme canon]] in The Last Roundup, having a speaking role with and being called "Derpy" by Rainbow Dash. To say the fans were pleased would be quite the understatement. * Derpy got corrective eye surgery! [[labelnote:explanation]] At the ceremony honouring Twilight and her friends in part 2 of the Season 2 premiere, Derpy/Ditzy is seen in the background without her traditional cockeyed appearance.[[/labelnote]] ** But apparently it didn't take. [[labelnote:explanation]] She can be seen in ''Lesson Zero'' being attracted to the enchanted Miss Smartypants. When the spell is broken, she was fighting the Mayor hoof to hoof, derpy eyes and all.[[/labelnote]] * [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/list/i_emptied_your_fridge/1 "I emptied your fridge."]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]A CatchPhrase and RunningGag where Derpy empties the entire contents of somepony else's fridge for varying reasons or even no given reason at all. May or may not be through the consumption of the food inside. Usually Carrot Top's fridge to her annoyance due to the meme's [[Webcomic/CarrotCakeStorybook origin]].[[/labelnote]] ** The animators did a FandomNod about this in the episode "Luna Eclipsed", this time [[http://youtu.be/FbWbBrm8Nwg involving an apple bobbing tub and a drain]]. [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/75156 Carrot Top is not amused as usual.]] * Ancient Muffins [[labelnote:explanation]]A variation of the Ancient Aliens image macro meme where muffins are the answer to every weird or odd occurrences in the show such as animation errors or {{plot hole}}s as explained by Derpy Hooves. The image used in the macro originated from a deviantART submission by Equestria-Prevails called "[[http://fav.me/d4h7rms Ancient Humans]]". Prior to the artwork, a photoshopped version of the Ancient Aliens guy with Derpy's head pasted over his was used.[[/labelnote]] * Where's Derpy? [[labelnote:explanation]]Derpy has appeared in every episode since "The Best Night Ever", and fans have made a habit of pointing her out in the same vein as WheresWaldo. Starting with "Lesson Zero", Derpy's appearances have become a OncePerEpisode RunningGag, to the point that TheHub themselves [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=275448695837553 posted]] [[http://twitter.com/#!/HubTVNetwork/status/148052378967478272 on]] their {{Facebook}} and {{Twitter}} pages about keeping an eye out for Derpy in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve Hearth's Warming Eve]]" (incidentally making her name even more official than it already was).[[/labelnote]] * Derpy's plot is iron! [[labelnote:explanation]]Derpy's appearance in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]. She had her own scene, and in it she plops down onto a floor...and breaks through. Taking Rainbow Dash with her.[[/labelnote]] * Derpy Drama/Derpygate. [[labelnote:explanation]]A name for all aforementioned memes concerning Derpy's recent controversy. The other name is obviously referencing the infamous Watergate scandal.[[/labelnote]] ** Derpy Shot First [[labelnote:explanation]] After being removed from iTunes and skipped in TheHub's reruns, 'The Last Roundup' was re-released with Derpy's name not mentioned, her scenes revoiced, and her wall-eyed expression lessened. Reaction was... mixed.[[/labelnote]] ** "I just don't know what went wrong." [[labelnote:explanation]]Derpy's first spoken line in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]] is often quoted whenever somepony makes a mistake. Also often used in a [[TearJerker sad context]] concerning the edit. Sometimes accompanied by the emoticon 9_6[[/labelnote]] ** They changed her voice/eyes, now we shall rage. [[labelnote:explanation]]In response to the edit, dozens of reaction videos had soon followed depicting frustrated, irritated, and enraged feelings from the fans.[[/labelnote]] ** This character might be considered offensive; expect censorship. [[labelnote:explanation]] The brief Derpy scare brought on a joke where similar characters will be censored. Including the mental patient barking Pony in "Read It and Weep" and Crackle in "Dragon Quest"[[/labelnote]] ** Derpy's BackForTheFinale! [[labelnote:explanation]] After being completely absent for 12 straight episodes, Derpy had no fewer than ''five'' appearances in the season three finale![[/labelnote]] *** Take ''that'', Elena Barabrich![[labelnote:explanation]] Webcomic artist Elena "Yamino" Barabrich is a common scapegoat for "Derpygate", as she expressed personal distaste at the episode in question a few short days before the censorship occurred. The show staff have actually tried to absolve her of all blame, with varying success. Perhaps not helped by her [[http://fav.me/d5v5dnv digging herself deeper]].[[/labelnote]] * Derpy is mad at Diamond Tiara.[[labelnote:explanation]]In ''Ponyville Confidential'', there is a scene where Diamond Tiara shoves Derpy's fanon daughter Dinky aside. There is fanart of Derpy turning up, [[MamaBear pissed off]].[[/labelnote]] * That Pony/Mare!![[labelnote:explanation]]In issue #1, of the IDW comic, Derpy is shown in the process of being imprisoned and impersonated by changelings. The dialog from Twilight reads "GASP! They've captured that pony in a chrysalis and taken her place!"[[/labelnote]] * Derpy in a Box [[labelnote:explanation]]In the Gameloft iOS app, Derpy appears as a randomly-appearing character who hides in a cardboard box (a la [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]]) and wanders around the screen. If you tap on her box, she comes out of the box, dropping coins and sometimes gems for you to pick up. This overlaps the above, as they only refer to her as "That pony."[[/labelnote]] [[AC:Lyra Heartstrings]] * Sitting Lyra. [[labelnote:explanation]]One of the background ponies, a mint green unicorn with a lyre cutie mark often engaged in some sort of FunnyBackgroundEvent, was seen in "Dragonshy" sitting like a human being on a bench, leading to many fanworks and jokes about her wanting to be human, mostly centered around her odd sitting patterns but recently branching into wanting human hands as well. Some [[TheMerch officially licensed merchandise]] has since shown her sitting in the same manner--namely, the ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=966 Lyra On]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=967 My Pocket]]'' and ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1953 Friendship]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1974 Is Coming]]'' shirts and the [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1330 papercraft]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1331 diorama]].[[/labelnote]] * Lyra wants hands. [[labelnote:explanation]]Ever since the sitting Lyra, fans have speculated that she might in fact have an obsession with humans (even though there are no humans in Equestria). This ranges from [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/58735 her]] [[http://ponibooru.413chan.net/post/view/38193 creepy]] [[http://www.furaffinity.net/full/6579087/ obsession]] [[http://csimadmax.deviantart.com/art/first-wish-253932825 with]] [[http://thelivingmachine02.deviantart.com/art/OH-GOD-POISON-JOKE-257494010 hands]] to [[http://thelivingmachine02.deviantart.com/art/Running-of-the-Leaves-216041437 mimicking human behavior]] and ultimately to becoming a human herself. [[http://i.imgur.com/VNO0x.jpg questionable content]] [[http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/2963/158764applejackartistti.png or if you want the full pic, also this one is PNG]] [[/labelnote]] * Seapony Lyra. [[labelnote:explanation]] One fanartist has started popularizing a seapony version of Lyra [[http://johnjoseco.deviantart.com/art/Go-Away-Sea-Pony-Lyra-258177483 like this one]]. She's watching you [[ADateWithRosiePalms clop]] clop clop![[/labelnote]] * "Ew gay!" [[labelnote:explanation]] A pic of Lyra saying this was created as a half-joking response to the overabundance of LesYay and femslash shipping in the fandom.[[/labelnote]] ** More recently, [[HetIsEw "Ew, straight!"]] * Lyra teaches about humans [[note]]A new series of pictures featuring Lyra in a classroom giving wildly inaccurate speeches about humanity[[/note]] * Multi-purpose, [[BlatantLies completely non-sexual]] [[EverythingsBetterWithPlushies Lyra plushie]] [[labelnote:explanation]]Some time ago, a fan made Lyra Heartstrings sex toy was put up for auction online. Soon after, waves of fan art started popping up everywhere depicting various characters demonstrating the use of the plush and its... erm... "cavity" as ''anything'' [[IncrediblyLamePun butt]] its intended use such a bag, boxing gloves, mittens, footwear, a mask, a quiver, a sleeping bag, a mail "box" and, most of all, a hand puppet.[[/labelnote]] ** It even has an AskAPony [[http://asklyratheplushie.tumblr.com/ blog]]! * Smoothie Lyra Don't Care [[labelnote:explanation]]One of Lyra's {{Running Gag}}s in the show is her drinking a hay smoothie with her hoof. In the episode "Magic Duel", she appears again with her hay smoothie, seeming completely uninterested in the fate of Ponyville being decided in front of her. This has led to some jokes and fanart about her not giving a flip while drinking a hay smoothie. [[/labelnote]] [[AC:Doctor Whooves]] * [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor Whoof/Whooves]]. [[labelnote:explanation]] Another background character, making his first prominent appearance in "Winter Wrap-Up", though he cameos in the pilot, a male pony with brown fur and an hourglass cutie mark who kinda looks like the Tenth Doctor.[[/labelnote]] ** It also has a followup meme, involving splicing clips from the Doctor Who episode ''Day Of the Moon'' into clips of its show. [[labelnote:explanation]] Specifically, the clip where one of the Silence is recorded saying "You should kill us all on sight", and then turned into a post hypnotic suggestion so people can defeat them. This often gets superimposed on scenes of My Little Pony as a creepy spoof of subliminal messages.[[/labelnote]] ** While [[http://comments.deviantart.com/4/1453017/2307272367 most likely a coincidence]], one of the background ponies during the party in "Sweet and Elite" looks suspiciously like the Eleventh Doctor. ** A blue pony with a blonde mane from "The Best Night Ever", "Sweet and Elite", "[=MMMystery=] on the Friendship Express", and "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2" looks like the Fifth Doctor. *** He's speculated to be the Fifth Doctor, the Eleventh Doctor, or the Seventeenth Master [[labelnote:Explanation]] The Doctor's rival[[/labelnote]]. ** "Sweet and Elite" also had [[FanNickname Pokey Pierce]] appear with an hourglass cutie mark while wearing a red tailcoat and an ascot, making him look like the Third Doctor. ** There's a blue pegasus with wavy black hair and ''that'' cutie mark in "Sonic Rainboom" who appears for a couple of seconds, rather appropriate as it resembles the equally briefly-appearing Eighth Doctor. ** In "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000" Doctor Whooves turns the sand timer for the competition. In other words, even the writers acknowledge that he should be ''in control of time''. *** And the trading cards have turned it into an AscendedMeme, or at least as far as they can take it without drawing the ire of TheBBC. He appears on a card with Mayor Mare and is identified as Time Turner, Ponyville's official timekeeper -- whose duties, aside from hourglasses, include maintaining the city's clocks and "all other things ''timey-wimey''" (and yes, they italicized the MemeticMutation reference to make sure people would notice it). [[/folder]] [[folder:Original Characters]] * Krastos the Glue Maker [[labelnote:explanation]]{{http://www.npr.org/2011/06/25/137386121/bill-clinton-plays-not-my-job During a game-show/interview on NPR}}, former US president BillClinton stated "Krastos the Glue Maker" should be the lead villain on the show. Krastos has started to appear in fan art showing him interacting with the ponies (as well as jokes showing the characters reacting to bottles of glue), drawn as a human with long arms wearing a hat and bib overalls, a bear with a gluepot and hammer, an armored pony, and other designs.[[/labelnote]] * [[Creator/LaurenFaust LAUREN FAUST]] IS BEST PONY. [[labelnote:explanation]] After Ms Faust {{http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/09/exclusive-season-1-retrospective.html drew her own ponysona}} the fandom almost immediately accepted her as a new OC, declaring her to be the third [[FanNickname alicorn]] of Equestria, or even Celestia and Luna's parent. Still there's that matter with reclassifying species though.[[/labelnote]] ** Lauren Faust is the only one allowed to have an Alicorn OC. [[labelnote:explanation]] Said in response for Ms. Faust having an alicorn OC as alicorn [=OCs=] are normally considered {{Mary Sue}}s and the arguement is because she is the show's creator, she is allowed to represent herself as an alicorn without it being considered a MarySue.[[/labelnote]] *** Alicorn Bonnie Zacherle. [[labelnote:explanation]] Bonnie Zacherle created the MyLittlePony franchise in the first place, so by the above reasoning, she should be allowed to represent herself as an alicorn too, if she so chooses.[[/labelnote]] * [[DamnedByFaintPraise I really like her/his... mane?]] [[labelnote:explanation]] Often said in response to seeing someone's OC as a reference to Sweetie Belle's reaction to Twilight's less-than-impressive "Smarty Pants" doll.[[/labelnote]] ** I ''really'' like her/his mane! [[labelnote:explanation]] Another reference, in this case it's to Sweetie Belle's reaction once Twilight brainwashes her into liking the "Smarty Pants" doll. Generally used for cases when someone's OC is actually considered a pretty cool pony design.[[/labelnote]] * Food Pony [[labelnote:explanation]] [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Anthropomorphic ponifications]] of foods, drinks, and condiments.[[/labelnote]] ** [[http://derpiboo.ru/tags/coke-pony Coke Pony]] [[labelnote:explanation]] A ponified bottle of Coca-Cola. She is an Earth pony with red hair, a brown transparent glass for a body, and a bottle of Coke for a cutie mark. Her inside is hollow and instead is filled with Coke. Drawn by various fan artists and made a cameo in Fluffle Puff's game ''[[http://fav.me/d4rcb9h "GO FAST"]]''.[[/labelnote]] ** Pizza Pony [[labelnote:explanation]] [[http://derpiboo.ru/images/16492 Mozzarella Orgy]], one of two food pony [=OCs=] created by Sweatshirt, took off in fan-art and all other fan productions, even going so far as to get a [[VideoGame/GarrysMod GMOD]] model![[/labelnote]] [[/folder]] '''[[Memes/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicCharacterMemes Character-Specific Memes]]''' [[/index]]
