* StrawVulcan: Averted with Wind Whistler, whose logical mindset is never presented as a flaw. Particularly defied in "Crunch the Rockdog".

* AdultFear: The parents of Erebus' victims are naturally scared and fearful for their children.



* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:Knight Shade doesn't ''want'' to be a villain: he made a DealWithTheDevil with Erebus and is now being forced to carry out his end of the bargain, whether he wants to or not.]]



* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:Knight Shade made one with Erebus to get his help to become a star...only for Erebus to start stealing and munching up the shadows of his concert goers. By the time Knight Shade realized what had happened, it was too late and he was stuck as his slave.]]



* EasilyForgiven: The protagonists ''never'' held a grudge against the genuinely repentant.

* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Seen often the series' villains, such as Draggle and (to a lesser extent) Reeka to Hydia, Knight Shade to Zeb and Arabus, Sting to Bumble, or Prince Edgar to King Charlatan. "The Glass Princess" inverts the trope, as the Raptarians are far more dangerous than Porcina, who mostly suffers from a LackOfEmpathy.

** Lavan goes from being a lava monster into a nearly all powerful crystal monster.

The Moondreamers are a group of celestial people led by Crystall Starr, the designer of the stars. They operate out of their HQ in Starry Up, which appears to be a fortress floating out in the emptiness of space and has many, many highways made of AppliedPhlebotinum that converge there. CrystalDragonJesus only knows where they all lead. Whimzee is another important figure among the Moondreamers, as she uses her imagination to create dreams for Dreamcasting. So naturally, she's having problems getting this done. She once accidentally brings her dream, a dreamkin, into reality where it wreaks havoc in Starry Up [[FluffyTheTerrible despite its adorable appearance]]. On another occasion, she actually loses her imagination and needs to go on a journey to find it, engaging in a duel with the supposed queen of imagination and is nearly killed for her trouble. The jobs of the other Moondreamers are to help Whimzee create these pleasant dreams and then deliver them to Earth's children.
Each of the others Moondreamers also fulfills the rule in literally running the known universe manually. The Moondreamers themselves seem to come in two varieties: ChristmasElves and [[FullyDressedCartoonAnimal Fully Dressed Cartoon Animals]].

* BreatherEpisode: "Pony Puppy" and "Little Piece of Magic"



* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: All the ponies featured in "Rescue at Midnight Castle" - most notably Firefly, Twilight, Bowtie, Applejack, and Ember - are never seen nor mentioned in any other episode, all of which are set after. The ponies in the rest of the episodes rotate.
** Scorpan seems to suffer this as well, though it could be argued he simply returned to his kingdom, which would have been restored with [[spoiler: the death of Tirek]].



** When the first attempts to negotiate with Niblick fail in "The Magic Coins", seemingly dooming Pony Land to a drought, and the Baby Sea Ponies to certain death.



* MoodWhiplash: "Rescue at Midnight Castle" begins with a lighthearted moment while the My Little Pony theme plays, ending in "May all your days be bright." Then things get dark as Tirek's minions attack, and soon after we see Tirek, who is the most malevolent villain in the show. After the fight sequence ending with [[spoiler: the ''death'' of Tirek]], things get lighter both literally and figuratively, and the My Little Pony theme plays again during a lighthearted moment with Ember.



* NoAntagonist: While most four-part episodes have a villain, The Magic Coins does not. Ironically it is the darkest episode with the drought that threatens to destroy Pony Land and up front kill the baby Sea Ponies, and [[spoiler: attempt at negotiating with the only creature that can reverse the spell fails at first]]. Though of course everything still turns out in the end.



* TerribleTrio: Hydia, Reeka, and Draggle. There's also the Raptorians in "The Glass Princess"



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: Hydia, Reeka, and Draggle]] are last seen being blown away by the Flutter Ponies, but it's never specified where to or what was done with them.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler: Hydia, Reeka, and Draggle]] are last seen being blown away by the Flutter Ponies, but it's never specified where to or what was done with them. One can guess, however, since they returned the last two times and are never seen again after this event.

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: The Glo Friends...glow. Yeah... They used their glowing powers to melt a giant Ice cage in the winter (once they were able to circle together, holding hands) in ''Glo Friends Save Chritmas'' and they manage to help heal a giant tree and have it bloom flowers again ("Love will Light the way!").

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: The Glo Friends...glow. Yeah... They But then, it can be quite powerful in the right situation; for example, they used their glowing powers to melt a giant Ice cage in the winter (once they were able to circle together, holding hands) in ''Glo Friends Save Chritmas'' and they manage to help heal a giant tree and have it bloom flowers again ("Love will Light the way!").



* InsufferableGenius: Sparky Dreamer is a know-it-all who takes great pride in her intellect and tends to be very strict about rules and regulations. Then again, she's the one who often has to fix other peoples' messes and the one time she disobeyed the rules and let two dimwits into Starry Up a SealedEvilInACan was unleashed. So perhaps her attitude is just a might bit justified.

* HeartbeatSoundtrack: Tirek's first scene.



* TheUnfavorite: Draggle. While both Draggle and Reeka are disappointments to their mother, Draggle is clearly shown to be the least favorite due to her [[AmbiguousDisorder struggles]] with magic and her [[{{Moe}} sensitivity]]. At one point, Hydia exclaims, "There are plenty of other witches! Why did I have to get Draggle?"
* UncertainDoom: In "The End of Flutter Valley", [[spoiler: Hydia, Reeka, and Draggle are blown away by the Flutter Ponies and never seen again, leading us to assume they were blown to their deaths offscreen]]; In "The Ghost of Paradise Estate", [[spoiler: Squirk and Crank are sucked into a whirlpool by Megan when she removes the extra water Squirk used to flood Dream Valley;]] and in "The Revolt of Paradise Estate", [[spoiler: Beezen is last seen being chased by his wand, which has the power to zap things out of existence]].



* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Not as bad as the specials, but when there are villains, they take the scare factor UpToEleven. The most evil of these are Hydia, Squirk, Grogar, Lavan, and especially Tirek.



* TheVoiceless:
** Sundance. Like many other characters, her voice actress from The Movie did not return for the TV series. Unlike the other characters, they never cast anyone to replace her! [[ActorExistenceLimbo And thus Sundance appears in dozens of episodes without saying a word]].
** The Flutter Pony Lily.

* FelonyMisdemeanor: If the Glo Friends ever run out of Moondrops, they will cease to glow in the dark. Why is this a bad thing? Frankly, we have no idea. They seem to get very weak and can't used their glowing powers well, if they don't drink their Moondrops.

* SavingChristmas: The plot of a rare TV special ''The Glo Friends Save Christmas'', which actually predated the series. Can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvAMVf4j6OY here]]. The Glo Friends had to free Santa from the clutches of an evil witch named Blanche.
