* 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, characters new and returning, and [[AuthorsSavingThrow the first movies faults atoned for]]. While the series is still [[LoveItOrHateIt not going to be winning any popularity polls anytime soon, many people appreciate the effort]]. This was the EG series what FIM was to MLP, leaving fans excited to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames future prospects]].

* MagnificentBitch: Adagio Dazzle is a very effective villain, proving a threat with a simple plan and [[XanatosSpeedChess adapting quickly to manipulate everyone else to leave the Dazzlings on top.]] She even comes dangerously close to winning the final battle due to her planning. Her plan is to TakeOverTheWorld using the power of ''AwesomeMusic''. That ''alone'' is Magnificent.

One trope per line.
* EvenBetterSequel or SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: While the quality of both films is [[LoveItOrHateIt still argued]], general 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.

* PanderingToTheBase: The portrayal of Flash Sentry definitely has shades of it, with his spending most of the film BrainwashedAndCrazy and acting as a HateSink with his especially nasty comments (which oddly enough, one major scene with said nasty comments got EditedForSyndication). And even after the spell is lifted, he doesn't get to kiss Twilight. Then again, he's such a jerk under the influence that maybe the idea was to make fans think better of his normal persona.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A line by Aria Blaze in retort to Adagio Dazzle saying they should follow her lead suggests of a potential power struggle to come between her and the self-proclaimed leader of the Dazzlings. This seemed to set them up for the [[SocialDarwinist "everyone for themselves" mentality]] they promoted [[HoistByHisOwnPetard to be their undoing,]] but it is never brought up again.

* MemeticMolester: ''Maud'', of all ponies, thanks to the kitchen scene. It's common to depict her either as sneaking up on Sunset to feel her up, or spying on Sunset and Twilight's ShipTease.

Won't disagree if someone sees fit to remove this, but I've seen it enough to think it qualifies

* 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 one of it's big criticisms.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: A major factor to Sonata's popularity. The writers made her so likable as a comedic relief character that it becomes hard to dislike her as a villain, in contrast to the more traditionally evil Adagio and Aria. It helps that she never does any intentionally cruel actions by herself, making it a bit too easy to assume she's only following the examples of Adagio and Aria.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: In the previous movie, Sunset Shimmer was a BaseBreaker at best. She had her fanbase, but was more disliked than liked due to her shallow AlphaBitch personality and questions of if her HeelFaceTurn was sincere. This movie not only shows she ''is'' sincere about wanting to change and has become a better person, but gives her much more depth and a character arc to go with it where she has to ''work'' hard for her redemption and forgiveness from the school. This culminates with her [[spoiler:becoming a full-fledged [[SixthRanger Seventh Ranger]] and getting her own anthropony form to help the Mane Six defeat the Dazzlings. The ending further implies she's now Twilight's own student and will be writing her friendship reports in the other world via the magic journal]]. As a result, some of the hate has turned to adoration.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: In ToughActToFollow: After this film's glowing reception, especially compared to the previous movie, Sunset Shimmer first, the bar was a BaseBreaker at best. She had her fanbase, set pretty high for the next film ''Friendship Games''. General consensus on that film is that it's good, but was more disliked than liked due to her shallow AlphaBitch personality and questions of if her HeelFaceTurn was sincere. This movie not only shows she ''is'' sincere about wanting to change and has become a better person, but gives her much more depth and a character arc to go with it where she has to ''work'' hard for her redemption and forgiveness from the school.
