* 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.

** After this film's glowing reception, especially compared to the first, the bar was set pretty high for the next film ''Friendship Games''. General consensus on that film is that it's good, but not ''as'' good as this one.
** Many fans had a hard time accepting the HeelFaceTurn of Season 5's BigBad Starlight Glimmer for various reasons, but the heavy shadow cast by Sunset Shimmer's surprisingly successful redemption in this film was certainly a factor.

** After this film's glowing reception, especially compared to Ended up setting the first, the bar was set pretty high for bar against which the next film subsequent films would be judged. While ''Friendship Games''. General Games'' and ''Legend of Everfree'' were fairly well received, general consensus on that film is that it's good, but not ''as'' neither is as good as this one.
''Rainbow Rocks''.
** Many fans had a hard time accepting the HeelFaceTurn of Season 5's BigBad Starlight Glimmer for various reasons, but the heavy shadow cast by Sunset Shimmer's surprisingly successful redemption in arc and promotion to protagonist of the ''Equestria Girls'' series ended up setting up this film was certainly trope to Starlight Glimmer, who similarly started as a factor. villain that went through a redemption arc and joined the cast as a supporting character. The {{Flame War}}s of which of them did it better tend to be heated ones, and [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment let's leave it at that]].

** The film about the group forming a rock band focusing on Rainbow Dash. "Find a Pet" is the only song Pony!Rainbow ever had as a solo which was with Fluttershy before Season 5 (every other time she sang were group songs where all six of them sing together).

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

** The sequel does away with the incredibly cruel "only opens every thirty moons" time limit the portal between Equestria and the human world had in the first movie by having Twilight apply modifications to the Crystal Mirror so that it can be opened at any time.
** The sequel also avoids giving Twilight too many MyInstinctsAreShowing awkward moments. The staff were likely aware that these gags would lose their novelty in the second film. As such, they still pop up on occasion like Twilight writing with her mouth or with an awkward grip of a pen, but much less often. This gives the film much tighter pacing with more character-developing content.

* GrowingTheBeard: ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' caused significant fan backlash [[AudienceAlienatingPremise by premise alone]], with the final product being viewed as SoOkayItsAverage by the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic parent series']] high standard, not leaving much reason to care. ''Rainbow Rocks'' gave reason, with engaging story, songs, action and characters both new and returning, and [[AuthorsSavingThrow atones for the first movies faults]]. While the series is still [[LoveItOrHateIt not going to be winning any popularity polls anytime soon, many people appreciate the effort]]. This was to the EG series what FIM was to MLP, leaving fans excited to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames future prospects]].
