* ReclusiveArtist: Little is known about the current life of Madeleine Peters, the voice of Scootaloo, other than that she currently lives in Baltimore and is trying to pursue a career in animation. Not helping matters is the fact that she's not as active online as her two partners Creator/ClaireCorlett and Creator/MichelleCreber (her last Twitter post was in ''December 2015'') and that she doesn't attend conventions as often.

** Although Derpy's name being spoken in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup "The Last Roundup"]] got {{Orwellian Retcon}}ned out for being a BaseBreaker, the Comic-Con exclusive Derpy toy shows pictures of [[TrademarkFavoriteFood muffins]] on the box instead of printing her name.

* BadExportForYou: The UsefulNotes/McDonalds Happy Meals toys in Malaysia. For whatever brain-dead reason, Fluttershy, Rarity, Applejack and Princess Celestia are not available in the country. Since the show is not available in the country because no Pay TV provider carries Boomerang (Cartoon Network Southeast Asia now also carry FIM, though), [=McDonalds=] and Hasbro probably thought they could get away with this, made even worse that Boomerang was replaced by Toonami later on...

* BannedInChina: So far, 8 episodes have been skipped in Turkey due to the country's conservative Muslim standards. Notably this affects most episodes featuring celebrations comparable to real-life religiously-influenced holidays.
** Some episodes have been censored as well. This most notably removes pretty much every instance of one character having a crush on another. Hilariously, Spike's secret crush in "Green Isn't Your Color" was changed to him noticing that "Rarity put on weight."(!)

* BeamMeUpScotty: The phrase "love and tolerance"/"love and tolerate" (which originated from an ImageMacro) is usually associated with this show, but it's only been used in the ExpandedUniverse (in the TieInNovel ''Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell'') and for TheMerch ([[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=875 on]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1059 a]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=2418 shirt]], on a [[http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/f00d/ wallet]], and in the description of another [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1600 shirt]] and [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1672 hoodie]]), not in the show itself.
** It ''does'' appear in the lyrics for the cut ''Equestria Girls'' song ''My Little Pony Friends''.

* EarlyDraftTieIn:
** One of the early books refers to Luna by her original name "Selena".
** Many pieces of merchandising used artworks based on concept art, with some design differences such as pegasi having 5 visible feathers in each wing instead of 4, every pony having visible eyelashes on the bottom of their eyes rather than only on top and Sweetie Belle having oval-shaped eyes rather than round. The limited edition glow in the dark Zecora figure released in 2013 takes the crown, since the artwork on her box is literally a colored version of one of Creator/LaurenFaust's first sketches for the character which had narrower head and eyes than the definitive model.



* SpoiledByTheMerchandise: Beginning with Season 3, toys have appeared on store shelves that reveal many episode plots and season arc elements months in advance of the relevant episodes.

* AscendedFanon: Creator/LaurenFaust, as a {{Promoted Fan|boy}}girl, listened to the fans very hard, to the point of canonizing [[OriginalCharacter Unicorn Pegasi]] (On the other hand, since the only winged unicorns we've seen thus far are [[CharacterTiers God-Tier]], a ''lot'' of Pony-sonas just got a whole lot more [[SpecialSnowflakeSyndrome Sue-y]]).

** Many female fans call themselves "pegasisters".
*** While other female fans dislike the term and prefer to just be "bronies", considering it gender-neutral.
*** Another term is "bronette", nowhere near as popular as "brony" or "pegasister".

With the rebrand of The Hub to Discovery Family in 2014, however, the fifth season got a [[BrokenBase debatable]] treatment of this. There was a nearly-year-long hiatus between the fourth and fifth season, in part because of production for ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'', and the advertising for episodes was greatly diminished by the fifth season (though it retained its Saturday morning slot). Making matters worse, the season premiere promo ran nonstop ''even after the premiere aired'', leaving many to wonder if someone at Discovery Family was sleeping or [[TheyJustDidntCare not care about his or her job]]. Consequently, the ratings tanked from last season[[note]]Though fans try to downplay this by pointing out the flaws of Nielsen ratings, and wondering why the ratings mattered in the first place since the series was all about selling toys. And....[[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement well, let's just leave it at that]][[/note]], resulting in the season finale posting the lowest ratings ever for the series. The only plus side of this? It did get renewed a sixth season, somehow....\\\

* CreatorBacklash: Since [[GodDoesNotOwnThisWorld leaving the show]], Lauren Faust has expressed dismay at and disapproval of the introduction of Cadance as an alicorn and later the decision to turn Twilight into one. She feels it invokes UniquenessDecay on the part of Celestia and Luna.
