* DeconstructedTrope:
** Princess tropes get examined in ''The Princess Promanade''. Wysteria learned about the stuffy, restricted lifestyle princesses had--and the implication that before her, ''all'' princesses lived like that--likely put a damper on young girls who wanted to be princesses. Wysteria wasn't even allowed to ''sniff flowers''.
** Also, Wysteria doesn't ''earn'' the title of princess; all she did was happen to touch the magic flower. Any one of her friends could've become princess, and it's implied that if she did something to earn the title things wouldn't have gone so sour.
** Contrast with "G3" Rarity, who had actual responsibilities, power, and was selected from other young pink unicorns for the honor of making the first rainbow--but shirked her duties in favor of having fun.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome:
** Hard to define in a series like this with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters and never the same lineup twice in the manner of "G1" (Pinkie and Rainbow Dash may be the only characters who are in every story.) However, the first special, which introduces us to everyone, has Razzaroo as the main character and narrator, and Kimono, whose birthday they're preparing for, is named as the wisest pony in the land. You'd expect them to be the main characters, but they're never seen again outside crowd scenes. (Mind you, not ''one'' of the ponies in the first "G1" special was ever seen or mentioned again, so it's not unprecedented.) Kimino appears more in the licensed books and comics.
** Not to mention the Core 7/G3.5 era reducing everyone ''not'' in the Core 7 to either background pony or total nonentity. Most infamously, ''Minty,'' most prominent pony after Pinkie Pie, didn't get as much as a crowd scene appearance in Twinkle Wish Adventure.

Collectors unofficially refer to this incarnation of the ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' franchise as "G3". This is a series of [[DirectToVideo Direct-to-DVD]] movies, specials, and shorts released throughout [[TurnOfTheMillennium the turn of the millennium]]. Somewhat akin to WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales, these stories tended to be about friendship, SliceOfLife, and being yourself.

* DarkerAndEdgier:
** In ''Friends Are Never Far Away'', Pinkie Pie and Skywishes chased the Pegasi back to Butterfly Island through a Hot Air Balloon. Their balloon crash lands and is about to break as Pinkie Pie and Skywishes are about to fall to the waters bellow. Luckily the Pegasi saved them.
** In ''A Very Minty Christmas'', Minty went to the North Pole to talk to Santa. But it didn't go well for her balloon goes in another direction and Thistle Whistle is following. Thistle Whistle tries to grab the balloon but instead got tied up as the balloon crashed in a cliff. Both Ponies are about to fall for their doom until the others came to the rescue.
** ''The Runaway Rainbow'' had another dangerous moment. Rarity is chasing the butterflies during their way to Unicornia until she slipped and fell into the river. The others tried to save her but failed as Rarity, Minty and Pinkie Pie are in danger of going down a waterfall. Luckily the Breezies saved both Minty and Pinkie Pie, while both Rainbow Dash and Spike used a Briefcase to save Rarity from falling to her doom, before being brought to shore by the little flying ponies. Also, as the rainbow ceremony isn't fully completed, all color starts to drain from the world, making things ''very'' down-to-the-wire at the end. The characters are ''frequently'' made to sweat in such a manner even if there's nobody like [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials Tirek]] trying to kill them. Not only that, rainbows fading put all of Ponyville's food supply in jeopardy, as rainbowberries only grow after the first rainbow.
** Even ''Twinkle Wish Adventure'' can't escape this trope. All 5 ponies (Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle, who caused the whole mess, were left in town to stall for time) were going to Willy Nelly Mountain by a balloon to retrieve Twinkle Wish from the big bad when the weather changes from clear to stormy. With no options, Pinkie Pie decided to land the balloon despite the harsh weather and there's no way to tie down the balloon on ground. Luckily Rainbow Dash used her hair ribbon as a rope to tie it into a tree with the help from Star Song.
