** This episode is the first of several featuring Applejack's rousing orchestral "galloping theme," which has plain similarities yet equally distinct differences with the "Bonanza" television series banjo theme. As seen later in the series, the most prominent episode featuring Applejack's "galloping theme" is in the pre-title scene for Season 2's "The Last Roundup."

* The Tree of Harmony has a strong resemblance to the [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings White Tree of Gondor]].
* The Plundervines somewhat resemble the Facehuggers from {{Franchise/Alien}}.
* When the sun and the moon are both in the sky at the same time during the season premiere it bears a striking resemblance to the sky seen during the Sekigahara conflict in VideoGame/SengokuBasara.
* When Discord mistakenly refers to Fluttershy as "Shutterfly", he not only uses an anagram for the former but gives a Shout Out to the real-life photography service Shutterfly.

* Episode four featured Ahuízotl once again with a {{Mayincatec}} culture as well. One of the artifacts was called the "Tenochtitlan basin"[[note]]Tenochtitlan was the capital city of the Mexica empire, although they mispronounced it, since it's "teh-nosh-tee-tlan"[[/note]]. Dr. Caballerón's appearance and approach to archaeology mirror those of ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' character [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk René Emile Belloq]], who also sold artifacts for personal profit, and the whole episode is inspired by ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull''.

* Episode six, Power Ponies, features a spoof of Film/{{The Avengers|2012}} and Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}. The main villain, the Mane-iac, is a parody on [[Franchise/SpiderMan Dr. Octopus]], [[Franchise/{{Batman}} The Joker and Poison Ivy]] (and possibly Marvel's Medusa and [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Sedusa]]), Pinkie (Fili-Second) has super speed, akin to Franchise/TheFlash, Fluttershy (Saddle-Rager) loses her temper like The ComicBook/IncredibleHulk, Rainbow Dash (Zapp) controls the weather like [[Franchise/XMen Storm]], Applejack (Mistress Mare-velous) has a lasso like Franchise/WonderWoman, Rarity (Radiance) has a gem that creates shiny things like Franchise/GreenLantern, and Twilight (the Masked Matterhorn) has a freezing beam just like Iceman from ''XMen''. Spike is merely put as [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Robin]], and although his character was just there for comic relief, and also as TheLoad and a TagalongKid, he ended up being TheChessmaster due to his insight on the comic books themselves.

*** Rarity's reprise of 'Generosity (Oh Manehattan)' mirrors Eponine's 'Alone' as sung in the cinematic adaption of the musical "Les Misèrables". For one, the word "alone" is mentioned twice as Rarity closes the reprise, and both she and Eponine sung their solos drenched with rain in a city.

** Torch's throaty English accent has a quality most in common with one of the three trolls Bilbo and the dwarves crossed in the first live-action Hobbit film. This was very likely unintentional, as throaty English and New Zealand accents have frequently appeared in public cinema, television, web (and maybe radio) media as of late. Other comparable vocal qualities can be heard in Ugluk, the Urukai leader who replaced Lurtz at the beginning of "The Two Towers" film, certain pirates belonging to Barbossa's and Davy Jones' crew from the Disney's first three "Pirates of the Caribbean" films, and Manu Bennett's Slade Wilson/Deathstroke in the live-action "Arrow" series.

** Sealing the deals between Applejack and Rainbow Dash on the Iron Pony competition and the Running of the Leaves is made with hoof pumps laced with spit (demonstrated twice in this episode). This is reminiscent of the Ridge Runners' handshake Uncle Jesse and Boss Hogg occasionally performed in episodes of "The Dukes of Hazzard," which also involved saliva.
** Twilight's racing number for the Running of the Leaves in is [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy 42]].
