* MagnumOpus: ''Rescue from Midnight Castle'' is considered the best ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' adaptation, at least until [=FIM=]. The latter is a huge LoveItOrHateIt amongst people who enjoy the series as a whole so whether it's the new MagnumOpus or not depends on the viewer.

* ClicheStorm: As good as the original special was, it is also this. An EvilOverlord is trying to TakeOverTheWorld and only a PluckyGirl KidHero and her [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits ragtag bunch of misfit]] friends can stop him using a powerful {{Macguffin}} given to them by a absent-minded wizard.
** The same goes for the follow-up.

* EarWorm: a good chunk of the songs are very catching and will stay with you long, long after you've watched these. In particular the opening themes.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Firefly. Spunky tomboy with guts and attitude? Check. Inspired Rainbow Dash? Check. Being voiced by Creator/SandyDuncan also doesn't hurt.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: In ''Midnight Castle'', both Tirek and Scorpan.
** The former was a ''very'' EvilOverlord with intentions of ushering an [[TheNightThatNeverEnds age of eternal darkness]] and thus rule Ponyland and possibly Earth for eternity. To do it, he put the local enchanted creatures through [[PainfulTransformation painful transformations]] and constantly [[KickTheDog kicks]] his right hand goat-man, Scorpan around without relent and with threats of [[OffWithHisHead decapitating]] his only friend Spike. Scorpan himself was formerly a prince who had previously been enslaved by a previous conquest by this guy. He only got one half-hour to show his stuff, and he spent most of that time sitting on a throne.
** As for Scorpan, while the special itself did make great use of him as a rare MyLittlePony AntiVillain / AntiHero ('''Type II''') who unwillingly serves his evil master inspite of his own good nature. He ultimately undergoes a HeelFaceTurn once Tirek has [[TheDogBitesBack kicked him a few too many times]]. After this, he is never seen again and he never undergoes anymore CharacterDevelopment.
*** Once he actually undergoes the HeelFaceTurn, he accomplishes precisely bugger-all.

** The Sea Ponies. They're especially popular with the ''Friendship is Magic'' fanbase, which is still waiting for them to show up in the series proper.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Tirek is a ''very'' thinly veiled {{Expy}} of Satan. Remove his back legs and your left with a red, horned, cloven hoofed lord of evil who turns beauty into ugliness with the "Power of Darkness". In a show about magical, candy colored ponies.
