** Rarity is a pop musician with a keen sense for blending fashions from several eras, inspiring comparisons to Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell. As the directors said in the DVDCommentary, "What era is she from?" "I mean, guys, she ''does'' look fabulous."

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: EvenBetterSequel to [[BrokenBase those who liked the first]]. [[LoveItOrHateIt Its quality aside]], consensus is that the sequel is the better of the two movies. Pretty much every aspect lacking in the original was improved to some degree; Sunset and Twilight get more character development, the story is stronger, the songs are better (and worked into the story better), the animation is much improved, and the villains are better.

** During the final battle as [[spoiler:Sunset Shimmer powers up]], the way the characters are lined up in one shot makes it look like Spike is standing between Rarity's legs. Even more so, when the Humane 7 hug, Spike joins in - by hugging Rarity's leg. Remember, he's still a dog here...

* FranchiseOriginalSin: Adagio Dazzle was an [[MagnificentBitch highly competent, charismatic]] BigBad and counterpart to Sunset Shimmer, Sonata Dusk was [[EnsembleDarkhorse surprisingly popular]] PluckyComicRelief counterpart to Pinkie Pie, Aria Blaze... never got a narrative function, but was such a {{Foil}} to them that this was not a big loss. Come [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames the sequel]], which had five times as many supporting antagonists, [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter their underutilization]] was perhaps the biggest reason it [[ToughActToFollow struggled to measure up]].

''Rainbow Rocks'' gave reason, with engaging story, songs, action and characters both new and returning, and [[AuthorsSavingThrow atones for the first movie's faults]].

** From this film onward, the novelizations and [[TieInNovel original chapter books]] for ''Equestria Girls'' are handled by author Perdita Finn, instead of G.M. Berrow (who wrote the novelization of the first film, and writes the chapter books based on the parent show). There wouldn't be anything special about this... If Ms. Finn didn't ''also'' write the novelizations for both ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'' and ''Franchise/EverAfterHigh''. Making it funnier is that ([[https://www.amazon.com/Perdita%20Finn/e/B0034PTGDA/ at least on Amazon]]) some of the ''Equestria Girls'' and ''Monster High'' books were released '''on the same day'''. Not only are these rival toy franchises from {{Creator/Mattel}}, but at least the former pretty much [[FollowTheLeader inspired the creation]] of ''Equestria Girls'' in the first place.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Depending on your perspective; Flash Sentry certainly had more haters than fans after the first movie, and come this one, the showrunners seemed to be aware of it. Right from the get-go with Twilight (after the [[EnthrallingSiren Dazzlings]] entered the scene), Flash acts a little aloof, then much later is shown to be a full on {{Jerkass}} to the point of making Twilight [[BreakTheCutie cry]]. Haters were quick to jump onto this as all the evidence they needed to justify their contempt for him, seemingly forgetting that Flash was just as influenced by the Sirens' [[TookALevelInJerkass manipulative music]] as everyone else. The idea seemed to be the showrunners wanted to show Flash in a better light after he was freed to prove he's not nearly as bad as haters claim, but it didn't seem to have the effect they were looking for.

* EvenBetterSequel: As far as many fans were concerned after the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls last movie]], the creators couldn't go anywhere but up from there. What they didn't count on was a movie with [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome surprisingly better animation quality]], [[EarWorm even better songs]], [[CrowningMomentOfFunny funnier jokes]], [[EnthrallingSiren terrifying villains]], [[TheAtoner and a compelling redemption story for the previous movie's antagonist]]. Needless to say, even many detractors of the last movie agreed that Rainbow Rocks was a vast improvement.
