** On top of that, in "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000", there's a background pony with a hammer [[Myth/NorseMythology and a lightning bolt]] on her flank, who has been given the FanNickname Mjolna, after Thor's hammer Mjolnir.

** When Twilight [[spoiler: saves Owlowiscous from the library before it is destroyed by Tirek, and sends him off flying to safety]], it's much like the sequence in {{Avatar The Last Airbender}} where Aang faces off against Fire Lord Ozai and sends [[TeamPet Momo]] flying off to safety. The fact that both Tirek and Ozai are both RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver really stresses this point further.

** The song "Apples to the Core" starts with random things hitting the wagon leading up to the music, like a certain [[AGoofyMovie father and son trip to a fishing pond did]].

* "To Where and Back Again Part 1 & 2"
** The Changeling hive from the outside resembles the White Witch's castle as seen in the Film adaptation of "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe."
** The ponies abducted by the changelings were sealed in slimy cocoons and that is one solid bond this story shares with the 1990s miniseries adapted from Stephen King's "It." Additional references to the novel version of "It" include the consumption of feelings by the changelings and as discovered towards the end of King's novel, the fact that both his monster and the changeling queen are female shapeshifters.
** The Queen's defeat in this episode through the good feelings Thorax sends her way mirrors Charles Halloway's act of congenially hugging Mr. Dark to bring about the latter's fall in Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes."

** The battle with the bugbear on the town hall building is a ''KingKong'' reference.
** The episode is also a perfect storm of Internet and fandom memes.
*** The opening scene references Ditzy Doo/Derpy Hooves' fandom TrademarkFavoriteFood, muffins.
*** Both the fan-favorite pairings, Vinyl Scratch and Octavia Melody, Bon Bon/Sweetie Drops and Lyra Heartstrings, are made canon.
*** Vinyl Scratch's mobile DJ station can be clearly seen jumping over a stuffed-toy shark while racing to town hall.
*** The Twilicane also makes a very prominent appearance in the racing to town hall scene.
*** [[WordOfGod Word Of Larson]] is that Hasbro staff insisted that the bugbear monster had to be a panda; most likely referencing the "They're throwing pandas at us!" line from Saberspark's parody video "Leaving the Fandom".
*** An interaction between Sweetie Drops and Lyra Heartstrings in the wedding scene references the infamous "Ponies With Hats" video.
*** Steven Magnet's name is made canon.

** Discord imitates several different styles of humour, calling out to specific comedians. Of note is Jerry Seinfeld's observational humour, and Fred Galligar smashing a watermelon.
