** Magic A is the obvious magic, unicorn magic. Every unicorn has some limited telekinesis for lifting small objects, plus a suite of spells related to their main talent; ergo, a unicorn whose cutie mark signified a particular skill for baking would have spells for getting dough to rise, batter to come together, what have you. Rarity has magic consistent with these rules, her powers are limited to telekinesis and the added ability to detect buried gemstones. Twilight Sparkle is unique in that her talent is the use and understanding of magic itself, so she can [[PowerCopying potentially learn any spell]].

** The whole [[JustForFun/DaringDo Daring Do]] book in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep Read It And Weep]]" is a reference to the IndianaJones series. Near the end, they even have an overkill death trap of spiked walls closing in, sinking into quicksand, and spiders and snakes entering the room. Of course, Daring finds a way to get out.

* MedievalStasis: Averted, apparently. Maybe it's due to changes in production staff or increased budget, but Ponyville and Equestria seem to be advancing technologically:
** Train travel was rare in Season 1, and the trains were pulled by ponies. By Season 2, trains are self-powered and ubiquitous.
** In Season 1, the only medical facility seen was "Ponyville Urgent Care", which seemed to be just a big tent. In Season 2, Ponyville had a two-story hospital.
** Although this appears to apply mainly to technology, given that the architecture of the Castle of the Royal Pony Sisters isn't that different from modern buildings, Luna/Nightmare Moon doesn't speak that differently from ponies even after being imprisoned for a millennium, and quite a few of Star Swirl's spells still aren't understood or improved upon. Twilight making new magic was stated by Celestia as one of the reasons she deserves to [[spoiler:become a princess]].

* PowerpuffGirlHands: Though much of the time we see the pony characters manipulating things with either their teeth, wings, or magic, or pushing or rolling objects with their hooves, there are a heck of a lot of times where their hooves function, for the most part, as hands in holding various objects '''despite the lack of fingers'''. WordOfGod has tried to have such cases avoided, but becomes necessary in cases of non-magical ponies talking and trying to gesture with a prop at the same time. Generally done for RuleOfCool or RuleOfFunny. Also, not surprising given [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Faust's resumé]].
** Their backsides also seem to follow this: Applejack has been able to balance an entire bushel of apples on her hindquarters without a thought while walking, and many other ponies are seen carrying large items in a same fashion. Also see PrehensileHair / PrehensileTail below.

*** Once again, in the first part of the season five premiere, [[spoiler: Starlight Glimmer strips the mane six of their cutie marks and viciously tells them they're going to spend the rest of their lives without them]]. Cue happy credit music.
*** In the season five finale, [[spoiler: Thanks to Starlight Glimmer, Twilight and Spike find themselves in a base camp of rebels in a BadFuture where Queen Chrysalis and the Changelings have conquered Equestria. The rebels surround Twilight and Spike with ''spears'' pointed, believing them to be Changelings and threatening to kill them. Twilight [[OhCrap Gulps]].]] Cue up that cheerful My Little Pony theme song, folks!

* PaletteSwap
** A lot of background ponies are palette-swapped multiple times to make new background ponies.
*** Sometimes even major characters themselves are palette-swapped to make background ponies.
*** The white nurse pony from "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason Applebuck Season]]" has a palette swap background pony from the same scene.
*** The two spa owners from "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]" have the same character design but with inverted color schemes.

ponies; and a few are palette-swapped to make major one-shot characters.
** The spa owners [[AllThereInTheManual Lotus Blossom and Aloe]] from "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]" have the same character design but with inverted color schemes. (Generally assumed to be twin sisters, due to sharing a colour scheme with G1's Surprise Twins ponies, and G2's Rose and Lily, who are explicitly twin sisters. However, this has never been officially confirmed.) A third spa pony, Vera ("aloe vera"), appeared in [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E18TheShowStoppers "The Show Stoppers"]], and shares the others' design and cutie mark, but not their colour scheme (fanon is that she is a cousin of the other two).
** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E4DaringDont [=A.K.=] Yearling, aka Daring Do]], is a re-coloured Rainbow Dash. Oddly appropriate, giving how big a fan Dash is.
** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E12AmendingFences Moondancer]] is a palette swap of Twilight Sparkle. The adult version also has a partial change to her mane style, and larger eyebrows; but the filly version seen in flashbacks is effectively identical. Done deliberately to highlight the pronounced similarities between them. (It's strongly implied that Moondancer is what Twilight could have become if she hadn't made her Ponyville friends.)
