Added DiffLines:

* KidsAreCruel: The show loves using this trope, and not just for anti-bullying aesops. For example. it's heavily implied that Fluttershy's shyness and performance anxiety came about because of all the bullying she suffered at flight camp. Also, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon's bullying is shown to have a major effect on Applebloom's self-esteem in the episode where the Cutie Mark Crusaders are formed.

* EarlyDraftTieIn:
** One of the early books refers to Luna by her original name "Selena".
** Many pieces of merchandising used artworks based on concept art, with some design differences such as pegasi having 5 visible feathers in each wing instead of 4, every pony having visible eyelashes on the bottom of their eyes rather than only on top and Sweetie Belle having oval-shaped eyes rather than round. The limited edition glow in the dark Zecora figure released in 2013 takes the crown, since the artwork on her box is literally a colored version of one of Creator/LaurenFaust's first sketches for the character which had narrower head and eyes than the definitive model.

* ForgotToGagHim: Rarity is captured by creatures who want to use her gem finding powers for their own purposes. She turns the tables by whining so obnoxiously through the whole thing that at one point they even agree to work for ''her'' just to get her to stop, and [[PityTheKidnapper are desperate to get rid of her]] by the end.

** King Sombra fits the trope quite well. He's never really treated as a character like any other - more like a nigh unstoppable malevolent force.

* FriendsRentControl: Averted on the most part with most of the ponies, but Rainbow Dash's job is implied to be a minimum wage one, yet she lives in a large cloud house. Similarly, it isn't even clear at all if Fluttershy is even paid for what she does for a living, yet her cottage is quite big and accommodates lots of various animals.

** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E23TheHooffieldsAndMccolts The Hooffields and the McColts]]", the titular feuding clans are very clearly Appalachian hillbillies.
** Curiander Cumin and Saffron Masala, a father-and-daughter pair who appear in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E13SpiceUpYourLife Spice up your Life]]", are very Indian in their names, appearance, and in the style of the restaurant they keep. Cumin specifically mentions that they moved to Canterlot from a distant part of Equestria.

* GoshDangItToHeck: Naturally, this show cannot have cursing, and even "heck" is used sparingly. Instead there are numerous substitute phrases using horse puns, such as "what the hay was that?", "oh ponyfeathers", and "for pony's sake". The most transparent of these is provided by Fluttershy in "Putting Your Hoof Down", who snaps "Nopony gives a flying feather!"

Season 6 has Fluttershy use "peeved," and the other characters react as if she said a curse, including her mumbling "excuse my language."

** ** The Cutie Mark Crusaders appeared to have held it when they were on the lookout for their cutie marks. Their talents were hinted at by Twilight Sparkle in Season 1's "The Show Stoppers" but they tried for another four seasons to get them by doing other things. However, this turns out to be subverted when they finally get them in the Season 5 episode "Crusaders of the Lost Mark" since their symbols turned out to be different than what they expected.
