** 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.

** The dogs at the table in Discord's club are similar or may exactly be characters from sister series "Pound Puppies."

* 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."

** This is a deep one or a shout out full of shout-outs and apophenia:
*** Somnambula is a few letters short of the adjective somnambulant; defined as prone to sleepwalk. Somnambula the character does not sleepwalk in the episode but she crosses a bridge blindfolded to save a prince from Sphinx.
*** The Leap of Faith has many connections apart from being a popular expression and a Broadway musical based off a Steve Martin movie. Being uttered twice in this episode the "leap of faith" one was used by Indiana Jones near the end of "The Last Crusade; two, it was the title of a season four episode of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," which featured the Apple family; three, Pinkie Pie last used the words "leap of faith," in season one episode "Feeling Pinkie Keen," only this time she and Daring Do take the leap of faith instead of Twilight and land on...
*** ...Pyramid geysers which they cross to save Rainbow Dash and demonstrate a literal interpretation of the proverb "Hope springs eternal." Hope is also the answer to the Sphinx's riddle for Somnambula.



** Glopaz=Topaz.
** The statue of Sonambula at the episode's end is reminiscent of many depictions of Lady Justice often referring to the phrase "Justice is blind."



* In the Season 2 finale, Spike is shown playing with wedding cake figures of Princess Cadance and Shining Armor. Guess which two ponies are going to be in an upcoming play set together?

** Cheese Sandwich's episode and as well the one where Dash meets Daring Do are mentioned after the journal splice which led this writer to wonder how the Friendship Jounal became so dilapidated in such a shot time. Given that all the episodes from Season One to Season 5 episode "Make New Friends but Keep Discord," constitute one year...short answers: the journal was damaged first when Tirek destroyed the Golden Oak Library in the Season 4 finale and second when a brain-washed Rainbow Dash flooded the castle with rainwater during Season 6 episode "Everything She does is Magic." Also Twilight and Spike must have overlooked the journal immeadiatly after arriving upon Starlight's magically induced accident because of its sheer scope.
