** The panther statues in Catrina's lair in the second special look almost exactly like Ravage on ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers''.
** When we first see Tirek, his face is never seen, and he is petting his Rainbow of Darkness as though it were a cat. Much like [[Film/JamesBond Ernst Stavro Blofeld]].

* BlessedWithSuck: Having a demonic body has advantages for Scorpan, as he's strong enough to rip the bars of a cell off the hinges.



* GoodSamaritan: The Sea Ponies seem to help the other heroes simply because they like doing so, even giving them a shell (presumably enchanted) to use if they are needed again.

* XMeetsY: ''Rescue at Midnight Castle'' could be aptly renamed ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' meets ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''[[note]]The latter series was also animated by Marvel Productions[[/note]]. Heck, it even had both dungeons ''and'' dragons!

Just as Firefly and Megan arrive at Dream Castle, Scorpan returns for another assault, having only attained two on the first run, and proceeds to grab the other two while at it. Thus, Megan and a party of ponies set out to stop Tirek, but first they stop by the Mushrump to meet with the Moochick, a strange gnome wizard with a terrible memory and a mushroom motif, to ask how to defeat Tirek. He gives Megan a locket called "The Rainbow of Light" and they are on their way. Once at Midnight Castle, they break in and confront the evil overlord himself.

The Little Ponies prepare for a "Welcome Back" party for their human friend, Megan. Strangely, absolutely none of the original ponies from the first special appear in this follow-up, so it's anyone's guess why they're welcoming her back. Meanwhile, little furballs called Bushwoolies are the slaves of a drug-addicted {{Catgirl}} named Catrina and are watched over by a shape-shifting lizard-man named Rep. When they escape, she tries to make the Little Ponies her new slaves to keep her drug brewing machine working nonstop.

She and her companion manage only to grab one, Baby Moondancer, and they are pursued back into their lair by the other ponies and Megan.

* AdultFear: Both specials involved a girl who couldn't be older than fourteen. In the first, she is essentially being kidnapped by a talking pony and almost murdered. This might cause some viewers to wonder what her parents thought when she was gone. The second special involved the antagonist nearly murdering a filly.

** Similarly, Twilight's teleportation. We see it once early on to know she can do it, and then it comes in handy during some MacGuffin Keep-Away. (This is before the show would make it so that every unicorn could do that; in the special it's Twilight's thing only.)
