* SwampsAreEvil: Perhaps not evil, a such, but definitely dangerous and unpleasant. Swamps have shown up in multiple episodes, and they rarely contain very pleasant things.
** Froggy Bottom Bog from isn't so bad. Just avoid the giant aggressive hydra that lives there.
** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E17SomeponyToWatchOverMe Somepony to Watch Over Me]]" there's a fire swamp, dotted by random gouts of fire and inhabited by a [[MixAndMatchCritters Chimera]]. There's also a much less evil swamp beyond that, where ponies have peacefully settled.
** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E18AHealthOfInformation A Health of Information]]" features two swamps, an unnamed wetland at the beginning and the Hayseed Swamp where Mage Meadowbrook used to live. Both are full of trees whose pollen spreads Swamp Fever, a sickness that causes afflicted ponies to [[{{Transflormation}} transform into trees of the same kind that grows the flowers]]. The Hayseed Swamp is also home to hives of flash bees, extremely aggressive and [[ShockAndAwe electrogenic]] insects.

*** The issue is muddied in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E5GauntletOfFire Guantlet of Fire,]] when Rarity is harvesting gems in a cave inhabited by sleeping bats, as she doesn't want the light from her magic aura to awaken them. Possibly there is always an aura, but it is only visible in very dark conditions, and is enhanced for the viewer's clarity.

** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E25TwilightsKingdomPart1 "Twilight's Kingdom–Part 1"]], a few of Fluttershy and Discord's moments show them being very close, plus the passing mention of the two having a get-together for tea. When confronting Tirek, Discord tells him he's only capturing him for Fluttershy's sake. He also has a photo of him and Fluttershy together.
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E26TwilightsKingdomPart2 "Twilight's Kingdom–Part 2"]], if you look closely at the captured Mane 5 after Discord is drained, you can see Spike holding Rarity.
*** Near the end, Discord gives Celestia a bouquet of flowers and winks at her. It does seem like a possible acknowledgement of the fan idea that the two of them [[FoeYay had a thing]] once.
*** The Discord/Fluttershy tease is still going strong - Discord softly apologizes to her, and she forgives him. And then there's this little exchange:
-->'''Fluttershy:''' ''(to Twilight, on her HeroicSacrifice)'' We're not worth it!\\
'''Discord:''' Oh, but ''[[YouAreWorthHell you]]'' are, Fluttershy. You're the pony who taught me that [[TitleDrop Friendship is Magic]]. I had magic ''and'' friendship, and now, I don't have either.

Rarity. There still seems to be some Discord/Fluttershy tease - Fluttershy flies over to hug him the minute he arrives, and is heartbrokenly crying when Discord betrays them, because she believed that he really did change for the better. Later on, [[spoiler:after Tirek drains Discord of his powers and traps him in a bubble]], Discord softly apologizes to her, and she forgives him. Discord also appreciates Fluttershy for teaching him the value of friendship. Near the end, Discord gives Celestia a bouquet of flowers and winks at her. It does seem like a possible acknowledgement of the fan idea that the two of them [[FoeYay had a thing]] once.
*** The Discord/Fluttershy tease is still going strong -
her.
** In ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E7MakeNewFriendsButKeepDiscord Make New Friends but Keep Discord]]'',
Discord softly apologizes gets so jealous over Fluttershy having a new friend, [[spoiler:to the point of nearly sending Tree Hugger to her, another dimension]]. He even gets excited when he sees her at the gala and she forgives him. And then there's this even tells Tree Hugger: [[spoiler:"We LIKE each other. That was the point."]] There is also a little exchange:
-->'''Fluttershy:''' ''(to Twilight, on her HeroicSacrifice)'' We're not worth it!\\
'''Discord:''' Oh, but ''[[YouAreWorthHell you]]'' are, Fluttershy. You're
bit of Discord/Celestia, especially when she is the pony who taught me only one to laugh at his attempts at joking as well as admitting she invited Discord to liven up the party, even going so far to declare that [[TitleDrop Friendship is Magic]]. I had magic ''and'' friendship, and now, I don't have either.it has been the best gala in YEARS.


Added DiffLines:

** Between [[TheStoic Big Mac]] and [[TheQuietOne Marble Pie]], in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E21Hearthbreakers Hearthbreakers]]. The two spend most of their interactions either shyly looking away from each other or just meeting each other's eyes, often accompanied by blushing. And then there's their little "[[TwiceShy conversation]]''. Of course, [[ShipperOnDeck Pinkie]] didn't exactly do much to discourage shipping.
** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E2TheCrystallingPart2 The Crystalling Part 2]] showed a few moments between Starlight Glimmer and Sunburst.
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E14StrangerThanFanFiction Stranger Than Fan Fiction]], Rainbow Dash meets a fellow Daring Do fan named Quibble Pants. And, when they weren't arguing over the quality of the books, they bonded very quickly, frolicking through the convention, and making up at the end of the episode.
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E24TopBolt Top Bolt]], there's Sky Stinger and Vapor Trail. After making up following a fight, the two become much better fliers, and closer friends, with Vapor Trail glomping Sky Stinger a couple of times.

* ShownTheirWork:
** Someone on staff knows their animals. Storyboardists Sabrina "Sibsy" Alberghetti and Raven Molisee attribute this to Creator/LaurenFaust; her series bible had both real horse pictures and anatomy next to her pony drawings to compare anatomy and how limbs and other parts would bend. The storyboardists also had similar pictures to work from. Lauren had insisted they avoid making the ponies perform actions that would be too much like a humans' action (bending a hoof like a hand, for example).
*** In many episodes (one of the more obvious examples is at Gummy's birthday party in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E25PartyOfOne "Party of One"]]), the ponies are shown shoving each other around with actions like [[UseYourHead headbutts]] and {{Ass Kicks|You}}, with the targets of these actions typically shrugging them off without so much as an annoyed look. This isn't {{Slapstick}}; RealLife horses are known for being very rambunctious when at play, which is why such roughhousing is sometimes called horseplay.
*** Horses will sometimes raise one of their front legs in a kicking motion when nervous, which is what Fluttershy does when she encounters Twilight Sparkle in the first episode.
*** Similarly, horses flick their tails in annoyance to shoo away flies and the like. You can see this happen several times in the series when a pony character is annoyed (e.g. Rainbow Dash looking non-nonplussed when the three bullies taunt her during "Sonic Rainboom".)
*** Twilight also uses her tail to swat at parasprites in "Swarm of the Century".
*** When Applejack pokes Big [=McIntosh=] in the ribs in "Applebuck Season" he responds by raising a haunch and glaring at her. That's an actual threat display by a horse about to kick.
*** The way the ponies move in general is very well done. When not being exaggerated for comedy, their joints bend in the same places and directions a real horse's would, and they have correctly animated gaits (walk, trot, canter, gallop) consistent with how fast they're moving.
*** The Ponies move their ears back and snort when angry or frightened, just like real horses do.
*** If pushed far enough, a disobedient horse will sit down on its rump and refuse to move, exactly like Pinkie does when she refuses to go with Rainbow Dash in "Party of One".
*** Fluttershy greeted the Manticore cat-style, leaning forward with her nose for a moment.
*** Sexual dimorphism is accurately depicted in Fluttershy's mallard friends.
*** The loon in Fluttershy's fantasy in "The Ticket Master" has a red outline on its eye. Red eyes are a distinguishing characteristic of loons.
*** Zecora's digging goes unexplained, but real zebras dig for water in the same fashion. The same behavior by a ''horse'', however, is another threat display, so the scene actually makes MORE sense -- Zecora was probably just nervous and a little thirsty, but the ponies around her misinterpreted her body language as grumpy and hostile.
*** In the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E7Dragonshy Dragonshy]]", Fluttershy is shown falling over stiff-leggedly with fear on several occasions... accompanied by the sound of a goat bleating. This may be a reference to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fainting_goat fainting goats]], a breed of goat which stiffens and falls over when startled.
*** In the song "The Art of the Dress" many references are made to actual equine anatomy...and then appropriate parts of the dress are shown being designed and constructed for them, [[ShownTheirWork making it clear]] the writers didn't just grab random words from a "Parts of the Horse" chart. "[[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Parts of the Pony]]," by the way, would be an excellent song in MLP.
*** While [[CloudCuckoolander Pinkie]] may be a little strange, in the episode "Feeling Pinkie Keen", she is shown rolling around in the grass. That's not her being strange; real horses and ponies will roll around in the grass like that.
*** Pinkie Pie removing wet pie filling from her face by covering it with molten chocolate, letting it dry and chipping it off is how some animals remove wet residues from their face using mud. The problem is, animals that usually do this are [[CarnivoreConfusion carnivores removing blood.]]
*** In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles The Cutie Mark Chronicles]]", filly Fluttershy is drawn differently from most other fillies, having proportionally longer legs than her adult self. This is the correct body proportion for young equines. It also applies to other quadrupeds like deer and antelope, too. Other fillies were drawn in what would be more "human" baby proportions.
*** -Although it may have just been a ContinuityNod to "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E5GriffonTheBrushOff Griffon The Brush Off]]" when Fluttershy told Pinkie Pie that she was one year older.
*** -It also makes her look like an awkward teenager.
*** -It ''also'' is fairly common for future models to be exceptionally tall and gawky during their early teens. And Fluttershy does have, after all, [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor ze magics]].
*** In "The Return of Harmony Part 2", once the ponies capture [[spoiler: brainwashed Rainbow Dash]], she starts to snort and flare her nostrils, an activity consistent with real-life horses under duress. Earlier in the first part, [[spoiler: a brainwashed Fluttershy]] swats Twilight with her tail, this is also something horses will do when particularly annoyed.
*** The ponies' mindsets are also very accurate. Horses are incredibly skittish creatures due to being a prey animal; as a result, they often freak out and panic at anything that frightens them, which shows up as background ponies freaking out.
*** Little Strongheart from "Over A Barrel" is the correct size and colour of a young buffalo.
*** The clicking noise Pinkie makes in "Baby Cakes" when she thinks Pound Cake has wandered off is a real sound that horses are trained to respond to.
*** The goats from "Putting Your Hoof Down" have oblong pupils, just like real goats.
*** In ''[=MMMystery=] on the Friendship Express, Pinkie Pie scratches herself behind her ear like a dog. Actual ponies and foals will do this when they're young, but are unable to do this once they become fully grown adults.
*** From ''The Cutie Pox'': it's easy to miss, but every step of Twilight's buck when she dumps Spike (for a lame joke in a serious situation) is exactly how a real horse would dump it's rider, including her pinned ears and leading with her front legs first to put the "snap" into the whole motion.
*** Those aren't {{Wimp Fight}}s that the Cutie Map shows Twilight in the Crystal War timeline from "The Cutie Remark, Part 1". That's how horses really fight.
** It could just be a coincidence, but it [[http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/7096/1294009768004.jpg would appear]] that potato chips and soda can indeed produce something that could be mistaken for a muffin. (The main problem in that picture seems to be the effects of the melted gummy worms.)
** Applejack uses the correct game terminology while playing horseshoes with Rainbow Dash in "Fall Weather Friends".
** Fluttershy's "freaky knowledge" of fashion when Rarity presses her for criticism.
** Dragons are routinely shown hoarding treasure and eating gemstones. In many myths dragons ingest precious stones in order to fuel their fire.
** A rock Rarity is looking at is broken by the effect of [[spoiler:Rainbow Dash's Sonic Rainboom]]. In real life, sound waves can break rocks, and they've actually been used to break kidney stones. Also, the writers have shown their geology. Large rocks that are filled with gems when split open? They're called geodes.
** There's absolutely nothing wrong with Twilight's description of comets in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E24OwlsWellThatEndsWell Owl's Well That Ends Well]]" (also see SchizoTech above).
** A minor one, but in "Luna Eclipsed", Princess Luna speaks in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Majestic_plural Majestic Plural]].
** The Windigos in "Hearth's Warming Eve" are represented with frightening accuracy as spirits of famine and cold that feed off hatred and in-fighting.
*** Debatable. The "famine and cold" part is correct, but many Wendigo myths involve ''cannibalism'' more than hatred and in-fighting. Though this could be Justified with it being a kids' show and all, [[{{Cupcakes}} despite what the fandom says]].
*** Well, when Princess Platinum, Chancellor Puddinghead, and Commander Hurricane grew impatient. They began stamping their hooves on their ground just like real horses when they're annoyed.
** The bad guy in Read it and Weep is Ahuizotl, an authentic Aztec creature. Do they really expect kids to get these references?
** In another mythology example: The first time Iron Will, who is a Minotaur, is encountered in a maze. In Greek mythology, the Minotaur lived in a maze constructed by Daedalus [[note]]of Icarus fame[[/note]] under the order of King Minos.
** In ''Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000'' they show a lot of work: Cider season is a very real thing and lasts only a few weeks; cider has no meaningful shelf life and so must be made fresh daily, the cider press shown is a real (and very old-fashioned) model, and the eponymous machine would indeed outperform the Apples' old method by about five to one, as claimed.
