** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* "Fame and Misfortune"
** The title refers to two "Fame and Fortune" titles, one by Elvis Presley, the other featured in the classic Rankin Bass "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer" Christmas Special.
** Starlight says that her book splicing spell was previously used to make copies of "a certain...(uncomfortable chuckles)...manifesto." Given the stern looks the other ponies give her, the manifesto could have been Karl Marx's "Communist Manifesto" or that of an Equestrian doppelgänger. If it was Marx's manifesto, it would fit with some fans' characterizations of Starlight during her first appearance, as a strict, charismatic socialist leader of a small village. It could also make sense as real-world references (however rare) have been made in "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic." For instance, Fluttershy mentions French haute couture in season one, Cheese Sandwich mentions Hawaiian shirts in Season 4, and Discord mention mentions Abyssinia in the same season, which is a name used by writers like Samuel Tayler Coleridge to refer to certain regions in North Africa.

* 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.

* Spike spends a good portion of "Owl's Well That Ends Well" channeling classic [[LargeHam comedically over-the-top]] [[DastardlyWhiplash cartoon villains]], such as [[DudleyDoRight Snidely Whiplash]] and [[WackyRaces Dick Dastardly]].

** "Slice of Life" runs with this, making him a super-smart yet [[DoctorWho quirky scientist with a British accent]] and a house that looks suspiciously like the inside of the TARDIS. In the end he shows up wearing the famous super-long scarf from the Fourth Doctor and says, "Allons-y," the Tenth Doctor's catchphrase.

** During "At the Gala", Pinkie's fellow can-can dancers seem a little [[Music/MichaelJackson zombiesque]] and after Princess Celestia flies over Canterlot, it looks distinctively like [[WaltDisney another company's logo.]]

** Young Cheese Sandwich is a reference in/joke to WeirdAlYankovic's earlier image when he had poofy hair and glasses.
** Also most of Cheese Sandwich's lyrics in the final showdown are in Polka form, which WeirdAlYankovic is infamous for.

** Twilight's training with Zecora in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E5MagicDuel Magic Duel]]" shares some similarities with the one [[TheEmpireStrikesBack Luke]] once went through, taking place in the [[TheLostWoods local lost woods of sorts]], having a mentor who puts a lot of emphasis on concentration and likes to [[RhymesOnADime talk funny]], down to the training itself involving levitating objects while standing on water - and failing due to similar distractions. Not to mention that Trixie's dark cloak and red magic aura make her look very much like a Sith Lord.

* Episode seven, "Bats!" features a scene with Rarity in a special suit trying to catch a bat. The bat spits out an apple that lands on her "helmet" and licks the juice off it, like in TheEmpireStrikesBack, where Leia is attacked by a winged monster while inside an asteroid.
