*** Twilight Sparkle and Princess Cadance are respectively voiced by the actresses for the characters Drei and Ein from the anime adaptation of the visual novel ''PhantomOfInferno'' as well as its remake; two young women who were both trained as assassins and nearly wind up killing each other, which is amusing in itself since it's the complete polar opposite of Cadance's relationship with Twilight.

** The Romanian dub seemingly changes everyone's voice actor in between seasons. The only major characters to have not been recast (as of season 4) are Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Spike, and Discord. In Season 4, for example, Spitfire was voiced by [[CrossdressingVoices a man]], after being voiced by women in the first 3 seasons.

** LaurenFaust has a Website/DeviantArt [[http://fyre-flye.deviantart.com/ account]] and a {{Twitter}} [[https://twitter.com/Fyre_flye account]], though after she stopped working for the show she was quick to note that [[DeathOfTheAuthor her word isn't canon]].

* RecursiveAdaptation: Toys → animated series → toys. Hasbro is basing more and more G4 toys, blind bag ponies in particular, on the show. LaurenFaust based the show on her childhood idea of the G1 toys (as opposed to Hasbro's shallow animated versions) plus [[InNameOnly the names of]] several G3 ponies. So if you buy a Rainbow Dash toy today, you acquire a toy which is based on a character in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' which in turn is LaurenFaust's interpretation of the G1 toy pony Firefly combined with the name and certain appearance details of the G3 pony Rainbow Dash.

** It was part of the [[{{Fanon}} collective headcanon]] that ages ago, before they were as powerful as they are now, Celestia had pink hair instead of her rainbow mane (as seen in various old depictions of the sisters, including the book seen ''in this two parter'') and Luna looked like her season one self (as per LaurenFaust's explaining the redesign by saying it was because right after being purified her magic was at its lowest). Well in ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E25TwilightsKingdomPart1 Twilight's Kingdom Part 1]]'', when the princesses explicitly lend ''all'' of their magic to Twilight, the only change to their designs is that their manes are no longer blowing in a nonexistent wind. This makes nonsensical oddities out of Luna's earlier design (why ''did'' she look that way after purification, then?) and Celestia's depiction in books and tapestries (if she ''never'' really looked like that, is ''every'' pony ever to draw her colorblind?) but hey, every show has a {{Headscratchers}} page for a reason. However, it could be that donating all their Alicorn magic does not stop them from being Alicorns, as indicated by Cadence remaining one.

* AscendedFanboy:
** Of the four celebrity guest stars the series has had (see CelebrityVoiceActor below) three became cast members after publicly professing a liking of the show and/or its fandom. In Yankovic's case it took three seasons, but Hall and Oswalt were approached to do episodes seemingly minutes after showing their appreciation. As for de Lancie, he was approached before the fandom was public knowledge and swiftly forgot about the work he'd done for the show, but became an advocate for the fandom after his first episode aired. His upgrade to recurring cast member might qualify all four celebrity guests for this trope.
** Brony musician Gabriel Brown is already so prominent in the fan community that he often attends events as a guest with equal billing to actual cast and crew, and is best friends with cast member Michelle Creber. He's getting into voice acting at the moment, but his only voice role in the series to date has been as part of the choir, starting in ''Friendship Games''.

** Most of the ponies that come with an animal pet don't have the same pets as seen in the show. With the introduction of the Explore Equestria and the Equestria Girls Minis, they now have their pets from the show. Rainbow Dash comes with Tank in an Explore Equestria set, and all of the Equestria Girls Minis Slumber Party dolls have the pets from the show. For some reason, Rainbow Dash is surprisingly missing from the EG Minis Slumber Party line, but she was able to get her pet. Owlowiscious, however, did not get a toy, but he will be included in the Nightmare Night wave of the Friendship is Magic Collection with Twilight's treehouse.

*** Speaking of Spike's toy, he comes permanently posed on all fours, and while he does stand like this in the show on occasion, he mostly stands on his hind legs. Only his So Soft [[SpinOffBabies Newborn]] toy has him sit up straight.
