* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: EvenBetterSequel to [[BrokenBase those who liked the first]]. Consensus is that ''Rainbow Rocks'' is better than the original movie. 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.

** "Perfect Day for Fun!" too.



** On the other hand, "Friendship Through the Ages", with its frequently changing styles, is less likely to stick...
--->''Things may come and things may go\\
Some go fast and some go slow\\
Few things last, that's all I know\\
But friendship carries on through the ages...''
:::... darn it!



** One of the cut songs, "Friendship Through the Ages", has Sunset dancing with the Mane Six in various backdrops to different genres of music. Twilight's segment? Has her playing piano in an empty ballroom. ''With Sunset sitting on the piano watching her''. Twilight then stands up and moves towards Sunset to take her hands; though they don't, it seriously looks like the two were about to dance together. The fact that it takes place with a piano, like the above scene, hasn't gone unnoticed either.



** A few frames from the trailer of a cop doing a move similar to "The Robot", some fans toyed with the name "Officer Pootang Mang".



** After the image of Sunset's three portraits in the first movie went memetic with the third picture being replaced by something else, "My Past Is Not Today" has Sunset taking down the portraits and throwing them away, prompting the response from fans "guess she got tired of the meme."



* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The melody of "Music to My Ears" in the DJ Pon-3 short is almost identical to that of "Bullseye" by [=KDrew=].



** A lot of skeptics were impressed by the "Music to My Ears" trailer.
** The shorts in general have been winning over the crowd, even those who didn't like the first film.

** 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."

** 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...

''Rainbow Rocks'' gave reason, with engaging story, songs, action and characters both new and returning, and [[AuthorsSavingThrow atones for the first movie's faults]]. This was to the EG series what FIM was to MLP, leaving fans excited to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames future prospects]].

** 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.
