** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]": In the opening musical number two stallions lift Twilight down from a table where she was dancing and she runs forward. It's very reminiscent of the big dance scene at the end of ''DirtyDancing''.

** Big McIntosh transforming into an alicorn during the shared dream resembles the transformation scenes in ''Anime/SailorMoon'', even the music is similar.

** The Mane Six's Rainbow Power is similar to the "Sailor Planet Attack" in ''Sailor Moon'', even replicating the overhead shot as the ponies power up.

** There's an actual pony actually dressed as Sailor Moon, talking to another pony who's apparently supposed to be dressed as WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}, the comic relaunch of which hasn't been shy about nods to ''Friendship Is Magic'' either.

** Flurry Heart's deafening cry which shatters the Crystal heart has strong similarities to Banshee's "Sonic Scream" attack from [[Franchise/XMen the X-men franchise]].



** It was a rare twist of fate that the Don Knotts comedy film "The Reluctant Astronaut" was shown on AMC at 10:00 p.m. EST, nearly twelve hours before 'Newbie Dash' aired on Discovery Family on May 7. The 1967 movie was mentioned because "Newbie Dash" has a few coincidental features (merely Dash's janitorial duties, her welcome home party, and the closing disaster in the presence of her friends are indirectly paralleled in Knotts' film). As such, these features are not true similarities as unlike the titular astronaut (or janitor as initially employed), Dash knew the job she'd be taking; Dash's friends were sympathetic and open to listening to her plight at the welcome-home-from-work-party, and by the end, Dash's fellow Wonderbolts responded similarly and raised her spirits when Rainbow explained her discomfort with "Rainbow Crash" (additionally, Spitfire put Dash on probation rather than firing her for the mishap).

** It is best to concur that the song "Hearth's Warming Eve is Here Once Again" contains no direct connections to any other song save an obvious foundation on several upbeat Christmas hymns and songs. The characteristic of the repeated song title between the lyrics in the opening song is shared though equitably distinct to Broadway number "Shoeless Joe," and Don Henley hits like "All She Wants to do is Dance."

** Far from that, Thorax is in need of a friend yet is tragically misunderstand like Casper the Friendly Ghost. Additionally, upon seeing Thorax for the first time, Spike makes a exclamation of 'Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cha-changeling!' much like the stammering cries of "gh-gh-gh-ghost!" (number of stutters varies) made in the Casper cartoons when someone discovers that Casper is a spirit.

** There is a background pony (dubbed "Goldengrape" in the script) dolled up in an apparent homage to JAWS. Another (dubbed "Meadow Song") is dressed as [[MortalKombat Ermac]].

** There is a completely black painting in an art gallery. The artist responds to Cadence calling it dark by saying, [[SpinalTap "None more dark."]]

** The contours of the rows in Applejack's fields are vaguely reminiscent of Rabbit's from the 80's/90's "Winnie the Pooh" animated TV series.

* Cheese Sandwich IS Music/WeirdAlYankovic, to the point of looking exactly like him and even being voiced by him.

** Returning to the Indiana Jones shoutouts we come to Dr. Cabelleron taunting Daring Do and Pinkie Pie from a square hole at the tip of a pyramid, reminiscent of Belloq impugning Dr. Jones when the latter is in the Well of Souls in "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
** Finally, Cabelleron turning the town of Somnambulant against Daring Do parallels a situation in "The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger," by Stephen King. At the beginning of the book the villain persuades the people of Tull to turn against hero Roland Deschain when he arrives.

There is also the "leap of faith" that is seen at the end of "The Last Crusade."
