* HilariousInHindsight: The Season Five premiere two-parter introduced Starlight Glimmer, a pony who brainwashed other ponies into becoming a bunch of {{Stepford Smiler}}s in the name of [[AssimilationPlot "equality"]] (while Pinkie Pie expresses disgust with [[TheUnsmile how fake their smiles look]]). While it's never been confirmed (or denied), many in the Anti-TCB camp have interpreted the episodes as a TakeThat to the mainline TCB genre.

** Turns out the [[WesternAnimation/EquestriaGirls human world]] and Equestria aren't actually too far removed from each other. Most of the major problems it faces are caused not by evil humans, but magic and monsters from Equestria. And wouldn't you know it: we get a character who was originally a pony but decided she liked being a human a lot more!

* RonTheDeathEater: Poor, poor Princess Celestia. Intentionally [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic or not]], her AllLovingHero BigGood characterization keeps getting dragged through the mud. Both straight and anti- ''Conversion Bureau'' stories portray her as ponified '''[[AbsoluteXenophobe ADOLF]] [[ANaziByAnyOtherName HITLER]]''', and it's very rare that a story actually takes time to establish ''why'' she would proceed with the AssimilationPlot, be it brainwashing, getting [[MaddenIntoMisanthropy maddened into misanthropy]], or feeling that doing so was a necessary evil.

** On a smaller scale, any character who refuses to convert and calls the ponies out on the genocide they are conducting is written as such. Not only are they totally unsympathetic and beyond any kind of redemption on their own, they must be ''forced'' to convert. See HumansAreTheRealMonsters on the main page in her category for the reason why she does this.
