* 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.

(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.) ** 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.scene.

*** Season 2 introduced a bunch of new pony designs into the series, which had led to the bizarre effect of the primary cast of ponies all having identical bodies while the secondary ponies having more varied designs though the use of the older body types are still prevalent within the show.

Subsequent seasons have further increased the variation in body types; but with the originals still predominating.

** Averted with Princess Celestia too, as most of the time when she appears, she's either working, giving out work, off to attend some sort of work-related activity, or generally being diplomatic and working to keep Equestria safe and peaceful.

Princess Luna is also seen at work in about half of her appearances, raising the moon, helping the CMC with their nightmares, or engaged in diplomatic duties.

* OrphanedEtymology: In ‘[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E20ItsAboutTime It’s About Time]]’, Future!Twilight says she’s from ‘next Tuesday morning’. Does that mean that at some point ponies practised [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuesday#Etymology Germanic paganism]], or is it just a TranslationConvention?

* MilesGloriosus: Trixie as the plot of her first appearance. Also, while genuinely brave and heroic, most of the main characters can sometimes be more cowardly than they expected in PlayedForLaughs moments. Rainbow Dash, Spike and all three Cutie Mark Crusaders are most prone to this.

** Twilight Sparkle has NoSocialSkills, is [[AgentScully extremely logical]], and has an obsession with control; so much so that any chaotic situation is almost guaranteed to give her a HeroicBSOD. But even so, she is a fun-loving, easygoing character that is always willing to lend a hoof. *** As long as the "easy-going" part is [[SuperOCD listed in a triple-redundant checklist]], of course! ** Fluttershy is extremely shy and even cowardly by default. The exception to this is when she is faced with fearsome creatures, to whom she [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E7Dragonshy almost invariably]] relates to with compassion instead of fear. When she tries to be assertive, she sometimes loses control of her normally suppressed agression, [[TookALevelInJerkass turning her into an outright jerk]].
