MLP Analysis (also known as "Bronalysis") is the name given to a collection of internet personalities who study and review episodes, fanworks, themes, characters and settings of the popular animated series ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', as well as elements of the fandom. In addition, they also review MLP episodes as well as fan projects. Most of them speak through pony OC's of themselves.

The trend originally began from the rise to popularity of WebVideo/{{Digibro}}[[note]]Who has since retired and is now an anime analyst[[/note]], in early 2013/late 2012.

There is also an [[https://www.reddit.com/r/MLPAnalysis official home on Reddit]].

While they are a rather large and diverse group, they do have several well-known members:

* [[WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter Mr. Enter]] (is at times considered part of the group, although he doesn't think of himself as such)

Shows involving several members include:
* ''WebVideo/AnalystBroniesReact'': their own version of ''WebVideo/BroniesReact''.
* ''WebVideo/BronyDandD'': them playing ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''.
* ''WebAnimation/TF2Analysis'': their pony personas playing ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''.
!!MLP Analysis provides examples of:

* AddedAlliterativeAppeal:
** From [=AntonyC=], see {{Angrish}} below.
** Voice of Reason when reviewing Rainbow Falls for his "Top Five Best and Worst Episodes of Season Four" review:
--->'''Voice of Reason:''' ''Rainbow Falls'' can go '''[[LiteralAssKissing pucker up on the palest part of my posterior]]'''!
** Both Brawny Buck and [=ToonKritic=] engage in this in spades in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sf5UN2qcmfs A Buck to the Face: Canterlot Boutique]]".
* {{Adorkable}}:
** ALL of the analysts show examples of this, in particular WebAnimation/ILoveKimPossibleAlot, Voice of Reason, Eliyora, and Paleo.
** Voice of Reason's eventual girlfriend, [=SEGASister=], [[http://comments.deviantart.com/4/23788609/3602789134 asking permission to give him a birthday hug]].
* AerithAndBob: Some bronalysts have names like [=AnY=] Pony, Bronycurious, Digibrony, Ink Rose, and Persian Poetess. Others have names like [=AntonyC=], [=Robin0928=], and [=KatrinaHood=].
* AffectionateNickname: [=KatrinaHood=] called [=AnY=] Pony "Maxie" when [[http://comments.deviantart.com/4/24024473/3590986377 wishing him a happy 30th birthday]].
* AmbiguouslyEvil: [=AnY=], on occasion.
* {{Angrish}}:
** It's implied that [=AntonyC=] devolved into this during the "Technical Difficulties" scene during "Reviewing Is Magic 4", when Luna, after having been absent for the entire conflict, casually asks "Did I miss anything?"
--->'''[=AntonyC=]:''' [[BigWhat WHAT!?]] Di--did you '''''[[YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe miss anything!?]]''''' ''How about EVERYTHING!!! Where have you been you'' '''''RECALCITRANT BANA--'''''\\

[[folder: technical difficulties ]]
'''[=AntonyC=]:''' ''--Oh you [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Pompous! Pimpling!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis PLOTHOLE!!!]]''
** Saberspark does this during ''Brony 101: Alicorns''.
* AmusingInjuries: Has happened to several reviewers' [=OCs=], though WebAnimation/SilverQuill generally suffers the most abuse.
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: Emerald Comet, who reviews fan works since everyone else already reviews episodes of the show itself. This comes back to bite him when members of the ''Analyst Inquisition'' show up to try and make him review the show. He brushes them off with a reaction of only mild irritation... [[OhCrap untill they pull out a laser rifle]].
* AnthropomorphicAnimal: Dr. Wolf, one of the few non-ponies among the collective.
* AprilFoolsDay:
** On April 1, 2014, several brony analysts posted videos regarding their thoughts on some Season Five spoilers that had supposedly been leaked. Lending the whole thing an air of authenticity was the fact that all of them were sharing the exact same news: Princess Luna voluntarily transforms back into Nightmare Moon in order to help fight off another threat, creator Lauren Faust returns to write an episode, Pinkie Pie gets a coltfriend, and fan OC [[WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft Kimi Sparkle]] appears in an actual episode. However, it turned out to be part of a collective April Fools' prank spearheaded by [=AnY=] Pony. The following day, the joke became downright meta when Kimi Sparkle herself -- who is not a real analyst, but a parody of such -- posted her own video expressing outrage over being taken in by the fake spoilers.
** In 2015, Dr. Wolf and Silver Quill switched places, with Silver performing therapy on [=AnY=] and Commander Firebrand, and Dr. Wolf presenting a Silver Quill-styled analysis of Snips and Snails. Meanwhile, Brawny Buck presented a review of "The Original My Little Pony", which turned out to be [[spoiler:an episode of ''Series/MisterEd''.]]
* ArtEvolution:
** [=BronyCurious=]' videos, preferably the art style of his OC. [[note]]As of August 14, 2014, it has changed again.[[/note]]
** Emerald Comet's OC also changed from a Pony Creator OC to an original drawing as his reviews went on.
** Sapphire Heart Song has gone through 5 changes of her OC, having it be a pointy pony, poorly drawn version from pokemon art academy, a first attempt, a second attempt, and a current 3rd attempt with a different hair colors.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever:
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWeuHu2Bl08 A Buck to the Face: Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?]]" has Corpulent Brony defending Twilight Sparkle from a giant King Sombra.
** In "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgmAXRkJ0VQ After the Fact: Spike Speculation]]", Spike transforms into [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess his giant form]] once more and goes on another rampage through Ponyville.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HDsOUCc4FE Aeon of Dream's second magic lesson with Lightning Bliss]] has this and [[TheIncredibleShrinkingMan The Incredible Shrinking Pony]].
* AtomicFBomb: Combined with CurseCutShort, Saberspark lets one out in "My Two Bits: Lesson Zero".
* AuthorAppeal:
** Tommy Oliver is a ''HUGE'' Rarity fan. Beyond that though, he has a strong appreciation for character depth and complexity.
** Similarly, Digi has a massive fondness for Applejack.
** Any allusions to religion or classical literature is greatly appreciated by [=AntonyC=].
** KP loves "reformed" Discord to borderline fangirl levels, not to mention his voice actor, Creator/JohndeLancie ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uryn-IS1lpg she even has a video dedicated to him]]!). Any episode review with Discord in it easily clocks in at least twice the length of her other episode reviews!
** Silver Quill's favorite Mane Six member is Fluttershy, and he also has an inner Luna fanboy.
** Voice of Reason states in his ''[[WebVideo/MyLittlePonyCamaraderieIsSupernatural Camaraderie is Supernatural]]'' review that parody is one of his favorite genres of comedy. This helps explain his reaction to ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' (detailed below).
** References to Greek mythology make Creator/JoshScorcher ''very'' happy.
** Robin is a huge Cutie Mark Crusaders fan.
** Ink Rose absolutely loves Celestia. Even to the point of having the ability to make a spot-on voice impersonation of her.
** Cell Spex seems to be a big fan of Spike.
* BadassBeard:
** Saberspark's definitely counts!
** Digibrony once grew one, then he [[SubvertedTrope shaved it off]]
* BadassBoast:
** Saberspark gives one for the entire Brony community:
--->'''Saberspark:''' We have been baptized by '''''fire! In the pits of 4Chan!!''''' If we can make it there, we can make it anywhere.
** There's also something strangely badass about [=AntonyC=]'s last words when he's apparently DrivenToSuicide.
--->'''[=BronyCurious=]:''' The HELL!? Don't do THAT, there's no coming back from THAT!!!\\
'''[=AntonyC=]:''' Well, then I guess we'll dance together, forever. '''''In pony HEEELLLLLL!!!!!'''''
* BeamOWar: The climax of "Flight of Blight" is one between Lightning Bliss and [[LiteralSplitPersonality Thunder Blight]]. [[spoiler:Bliss wins by coming to truly understand her rainbow magic and using it to kill Blight and reabsorb her.]]
* BerserkButton:
** Do ''NOT'' mention "A Canterlot Wedding" in [=AntonyC=]'s presence. More specifically, do not bring up Luna's suspicious absence.
** He was also quite ticked off by ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]'' turning the Mane Six into high school students.
** Don't show Sapphire Heart Song a white OC with two-toned blue hair or she might murder it.
** Don't ever mention ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' in the presence of Voice of Reason if you value your life (this also extended to Mr. Enter, albeit to a lesser extent).
** The mere ''hint'' of a reference to the episode "Bridle Gossip" or "Rainbow Falls" will send Voice of Reason into a rage.[[note]]The former does not extend to Zecora herself.[[/note]]
** "Rainbow Falls" also irritates Cell Spex, though to a lesser extent. And do not mention Flurry Heart to Cell Spex. She does not like that baby. At all.
** Ink Rose absolutely cannot stand Celestia's portrayal as a tyrant and a troll. Downplayed by the fact that while she doesn't get enraged when people portray her as one, she does find it annoying.
** If you value your life, then it's best that you do not tell Lightning Bliss that she's cute.
** Absolutely, do '''NOT''' make a slightest mention of ''WebAnimation/DoubleRainboom'' (as well as ''anything'' related to it, such as ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'') in front of Firebrand. At his worst, he even held Voice of Reason with an '''M-16''' at gun-point ''twice''!
* BigBad: Several specials have them:
** Baron Tall Tales for the 2014 HalloweenSpecial.
** [[spoiler:Silver Quill]] ironically turns out to be this of the Valentine's Day special [[spoiler:due to arranging the whole thing as a sacrifice to his girlfriend, the Dragon who ''caused'' the Hearts and Hooves Day myth to begin with.]]
** Thunder Blight, Lightning Bliss' LiteralSplitPersonality, serves as this for the three parter "Flight of Blight"
** Cartoonz serves as one in the Cartoonz Arc, although unlike Thunder Blight, he also invades other videos.
* BigDamnHeroes: Tommy Oliver pulls this in "Thoroughly Fanboying: The Return of Harmony" to restore a recently [[BrainwashedAndCrazy discorded]] Digibrony, by reminding him of his love for the franchise.
* BreakoutCharacter:
** '''Silver Quill!''' Despite being fairly recent compared to most of the other analysts (having only just started in late 2013), he has quickly risen in popularity to the point where he is considered a nominee for the ''analysis community's'' unofficial leader.
** Tyandaga has quickly gained over 15K subscribers within a year of being in the Bronalysis community.
** Sapphire Heart Song got her break when it was displayed that her favorite analyst, Silver Quill had liked her content with over 200 subscribers within a night, and then got more breaks when appearing on AMWDW and collabing with Lightning Bliss.
** Manga Kamen also quickly rose to popularity and in spite of being a griffon and not a hippogriff, gained nicknames such as "Diet Silver Quill" and "Silver Quill 2.0", which is partially due to his similar style of comedy. Silver Quill himself is of course quite fond of using the former.
* CausticCritic: [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]]. While they are [[NiceGuy nice people]] for the most part, they all can be extremely hate-filled towards any episodes and fan-works they don't like. Though Byter definitely takes the cake. [=AntonyC=] often parodies these kinds of critics, acting snobbish only to do something to immediately make himself look foolish.
* ChristmasSpecial: ''A Very Brony Hearth's Warming''
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}:
** [=AntonyC=], as well as KP and Saberspark to a lesser extent.
** Digi sometimes comes off like this since his style shift.
** [=MasterCode=].
* TheComicallySerious: Whenever you have several analysts interacting, Dr. Wolf generally ends up in this role. The others can get pretty nuts and easily overreact, but he always stay grounded and serious, creating a hilarious contrast. Just look at "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCHQZea5fr8 Analyst Bronies React to Season 6 Finale]]" for a very good example.
* TheConscience: Brawny Buck tends to act as this in his "A Buck to the Face" videos, repeatedly acting as a voice for morality and telling other analysts to get their "mind out of the gutter." He even has a "Moral of the Story" series which discusses the {{Aesop}} in each episode, and has noted that he has been nicknamed "Moral High Ground" (both maliciously and endearingly).
* CoolHat: [=BronyCurious=]'s signature feathered cap,[=ToonKriticY2K=]'s red top hat, and [=PuzzleBrony=]'s red archer hat.
* CoolSword: Emerald Comet gets a purple, alicorn-themed one during Horror Month. [[spoiler:It turns out to be a fragment of the deceased Alicorn goddess [[Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries Amicitia]].]]
* CurseCutShort:
** Paleo during his review of "Wonderbolt Academy" when he realizes that the writer for that episode also wrote "The Mysterious Mare-do-well"
--->'''Paleo:''' Son of a bi--!! (''cue opening theme'')
** Saberspark also does this at one point, see AtomicFBomb above.
* DarkerAndEdgier: [=DigiBrony=]'s redesign, complete with him smoking a cigarette.
* DarkestHour: In 'Flight of Blight': Lightning Bliss has nearly faded into nothing, her channel has nearly been completely taken over by her, and the other analysts attempts to defeat Blight [[CurbstompBattle didn't go well.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Many of the analysts play to this to varying degrees, but Brawny Buck's "A Buck to the Face" series is almost entirely made up of him poking fun at various things in the episodes, usually with another analyst along for the ride.
* DrivenToSuicide:
** PlayedForLaughs in "Reviewing Is Magic 4" when Tommy's statement that he finds "A Canterlot Wedding" to be ingenious seemingly drives [=AntonyC=] to shoot himself in the temple. [[spoiler:Turns out he was just transforming into pony mode.]].
** [[spoiler:It's played completely seriously in Emerald Comet's "Cupcakes" review when Nightmare Shadow's BreakingLecture culminates in him trying to convince Emerald that the world would be a much better place if he was no longer alive]]. According to WordOfGod, [[spoiler: Nightmare Shadow's]] words reminded him of the thoughts that actually suicidal people go through in RealLife. That they're worthless, that people would be happier without them, ect.
%%* FourPhilosophyEnsemble:
%%** Tommy Oliver and [=AntonyC=] are Cynics.
%%** Dr. Wolf, [=PersianPoetess=], [=PuzzleBrony=], and Ink Rose are Optimists.
%%*** Digi was initially an optimist, but slowly became either a Cynic or an Apathetic as season four went along.
%%** Silver-Quill and Voice of Reason are Realists.
%%** [=ILoveKimPossibleAlot=] and [=AnY=] are Apathetics.
* FacePalm:
** [=AntonyC=] does this in "Reviewing Is Magic 3" after a fan points out that he misspelled ''mortgage''.
** The other analysts do it from time to time as well, with [=AnY=] and Silver Quill being frequent examples.
* FountainOfYouth: [[https://youtu.be/kQwMy_5pshI The plot of "Dr. Wolf Day Care"]]: [=KP=], Silver Quill, Golden Fox, Keyframe, Toonkritic, Firebrand, and Lightning Bliss get turned into babies (and a child in Silver's case) due to a spell of Bliss's and end up in Dr. Wolf's care.
* FusionDance: Lightning Bliss and Toonkritic do one in their [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5M-37DSgXbw joint review]] of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E13DoPrincessesDreamOfMagicSheep "Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?"]], becoming "[=ToonBlisstramon=]". The process is a direct ShoutOut to the DNA Digivolution from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02''. They later figure out how to do it for real.
* TheGadfly: Tommy occasionally demonstrates this trope, most noticeably in "Reviewing Is Magic 4", and his referral to Fluttershy as "Cheesy Gordita".
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Saberspark in his ''Brony 101: Alicorns'' video.
* HalloweenSpecial: Oh, there are PLENTY of these
** Lethal Aurora Mage's Lethal Halloween, which was the biggest pony related collab in the brony community (Before the [=TF2=] Analysis project) and featuring many well known members of the analysis community
** Voice of Reason's ''WebAnimation/PonyDotMov'' review with the introduction of his {{Alter Ego|Acting}}, Horror Score.
** KP's review of "Luna Eclipsed", complete with redone bat pony faces and Thriller PMV ending.
** The "[[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas This is Halloween]]" parody by most of the entire Rift community!
** Nightmare Night 2014
* TheHeart: Arguably Saberspark, whose videos have a tendency to inspire pride in the Bronydom, as well as keeping them from devolving into FanDumb.
* HypocriticalHumor: Done by [=AntonyC=] in "Reviewing Is Magic 4", when he tells Tommy to leave the fourth wall alone, ''then immediately looks at the script''.
* InkSuitActor: [=Robin0928=], Heartsong, and [=KatrinaHood's OCs=] closely resemble their real-life counterparts.
* JekyllAndHyde:
** Voice of Reason and Horror Score. [[spoiler: Until Horror Score became sentient in Voice's "Castle Mane-ia" review]]
** Mage and Lethal Aurora are a gender-swapped version of this trope.
** Cartoonz is the Hyde to ToonKritic's Jekyll.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [=AntonyC=] as well as Voice of Reason and Tommy Oliver. Digibrony can appear as this after his redesign.
* KnightOfCerebus: [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Lethal Aurora]] in "A Lethal Halloween". While most antagonists the Analysis Ponies face are simply jerks or troublemakers, Lethal Aurora is both a PhysicalGoddess and a sadistic mass-murderer.
* LargeHam:
** [=AntonyC=], easily one of the most melodramatic reviewers.
** Taken UpToEleven by Saberspark in his "My Two Bits" series. He ''does'' know that there are other drinks besides red cordial, right?
** Though not as much as the above, Tommy Oliver does fall into this at times, especially when asked in his first "[=BronyCurious=] Replies" video how he feels when he converts someone's "Best Pony" to Rarity.

[[folder: about to get loud: ]]
'''[=BronyCurious=]:''' ''[[BigYes YEEEESSSSSSS!!!!]]'' '''''THEY SEE THE LIGHT!!!!'''''
* TheLeader:
** Digibrony was the one who gave the reviewers their official home on Reddit, and has admitted to taking on this role in his social circles. He's since publicly disavowed this status with an [[DarkerAndEdgier edgy new style]]. [[BrokenBase Fan reaction was mixed.]] After that, though, he abandoned that style.
** In Digi's absence, Silver Quill, Josh Scorcher, and Dr. Wolf have more or less come to act as the group's unofficial leaders. Each could respectively be described as primarily charismatic, headstrong, and levelheaded.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: There are a lot of bronalysts.
* MajorGeneralSong: Dr. Wolf and Silver Quill sing this during their "Hooffields and [=McColts=]" review, the Doctor starting to sing it while in a drug/fever-induced delirium with Silver picking up the second half.
* MesACrowd: Played for laughs in various reviews of "Power Ponies", as Mane-iac's henchmen bear more than a passing resemblance to [=AntonyC=]'s avatar.
* NiceGuy: Most of their personas. [[CausticCritic Mostly]].
* NotSoAboveItAll: Despite hating "A Canterlot Wedding", [=AntonyC=] frequently admits (rather reluctantly), that there ''are'' elements of the two-parter he enjoys. Not to mention he does the Sunshine Sunshine dance with BC. Lampshaded by Tommy Oliver:
-->'''Tommy:''' Don't look now, somepony's being entertained!\\
'''[=AntonyC=]:''' Well... OKAY, that Was kind of cool.
* ThePollyanna: Ink Rose in "A Lethal Halloween".
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: From [=AntonyC=], see {{Angrish}} above.
* PsychoStrings: These play whenever "A Canterlot Wedding" is mentioned in "Reviewing Is Magic 3".
* RageBreakingPoint:
** After constantly [[TranquilFury trying to hide his anger over the Season 2 finale]], [=AntonyC=] finally lets it out during his co-review with Tommy Oliver.
--->'''[=AntonyC=]:''' And just in case--\\

[[folder: getting loud in: 3 ]]
'''[=AntonyC=]:''' --and on the off-chance it hasn't been--\\

[[folder: getting loud in: 2 ]]
'''[=AntonyC=]:''' --made abundantly clear how I feel about it,\\

[[folder: getting loud in: 1 ]]
'''[=AntonyC=]:''' '''''[[SuddenlyShouting I don't like this episode!! It is a BAD episode, and you should FEEL BAD for watching it!!! Oh, but I certainly did! Ricky Gervais levels of unpleasantness, potent enough to EJECT ME BODILY FROM THE BRONYDOM for a day and a half!!!!!]]'''''
** Tommy experiences this in his critique of ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]''. After spending the whole review as a [[WebVideo/RedLetterMedia Harry Plinkett]] expy, he explodes when Sunset Shimmer declares she didn't know how to make friends. He briefly drops the persona in his rant, and there's even a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo of his original fedora-wearing OC.
* ReactiveContinuousScream: [=AntonyC=] and Tommy Oliver do this in "Reviewing Is Magic 4".
* RedOniBlueOni: [=AntonyC=] and Tommy in the "Reviewing Is Magic 4" video. With Antony being Hammy and emotional, and Tommy being calm and thoughtful.
* RememberTheNewGuy: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMdoA2Q93rg In this BronyCurious vid he responds to]] [[StealthParody Kimi]] [[WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft Sparkle]] as if she'd always been a major member of the analyst community.
* RuinedFOREVER: InUniverse. Saberspark frequently parodies this facet of the FanDumb.
* SayMyName: [=AntonyC=] does this as a SkywardScream in "Reviewing is Magic 3", when he finds out that his TMNT poster is missing.
-->'''[=AntonyC=]:''' ''[[TakeThat MIICCCHHHAAAEELLL BBBBBAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!!]]''
* SelfParody: Voice of Reason as Horror Score in his "Castle Mane-ia" review:
-->'''Voice of Reason:''' Come back here, you ponified jack-o-lantern!
* SerialEscalation [=AntonyC=]'s attempts to open a [=TF2=] Heavy box set. Ranging from scissors, to hedge trimmers, to ''running it over with his car.'' None of these attempts are successful.
* SharedUniverse: The Bronyverse.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: Most members of the group tend to fall more in the middle of this trope, although some tend to fall squarely on the side of either idealism (Dr. Wolf and Persian Poetess) or cynicism ([=AntonyC=] and Tommy Oliver).
* SpeciesSurname: Dr. Wolf.
* StoryArc:
** [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLrieRKrH0zbEIjwL0Tez8r2b19WigM5U0 The Rift Saga]], started by Voice of Reason and [=AnY=] Pony with their "Magical Mystery Cure" review and [[BookEnd ended]] by them with their "Twilight's Kingdom" review.
** There's also the "Horror Month" story arc that ran on Emerald Comet's channel from October 2014 to November 2014.
* SyntheticVoiceActor: Cell Spex uses her computer to "talk" during the "Analyst Bronies React" season 6 premiere video due to a throat infection caused by her flu.
* TagAlongKid: Storm Analysis, Robin, [=KatrinaHood=], and Ink Rose are only twelve, fourteen, fifteen, and sixteen respectively while most of the MLP Analysis community (and most of the brony community) is in their 20s.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Adverted by Dr. Wolf, who, in his videos, plays a licensed therapist who often looks at the psychology of the characters. He's even had a therapy session with Fluttershy, Applejack, Pinkie Pie and Rarity [[spoiler:(and Rainbow Dash, but she doesn't want anybody to know)]].
* TotallyRadical: Dude Antony.
* TranquilFury: [=AntonyC=]'s reaction to "A Canterlot Wedding" during "Reviewing Is Magic 3".
-->'''[=AntonyC=]:''' Season two finale? What is this of which you speak? ''[{{death glare}}]''
* TransformationSequence:
** Parodied by [=AnY=] in the "Analyst Bronies React" videos; he starts each of his parts with a gratuitous wardrobe change spoofing classical transformation sequences -- from the old ''Series/WonderWoman'' series in the reaction video for ''Friendship Games'', and the ''Manga/SailorMoon'' one for the Season 5 finale video.
--->'''[=AnY=]:''' I should really stop with those girly transformations...
** His next transformation sequence is "super manly," and he ends up in [[MastersOfTheUniverse He-Man]]'s {{Stripperific}} gear.
--->'''[=AnY=]:''' Argh! [[NakedPeopleAreFunny Who decided to make this a kid's show]]!?
* TrueCompanions: The reviewers seem to be a very tight knit group.
** We have Voice of Reason and the Rift to thank for that. See StoryArc above.
** Less so now that Digi has gone off on his own.
** Even '''less''' so now that the Rift Cafe's skype group has been divided in half with some reviewers such as Dr. Wolf, KP and Silver Quill no longer being in the skype groups, though they still appear in larger collaboration videos, such as Channel Hopper's "Meanwhile 3" (which was posted to the Rift Cafe YouTube channel) and "A Serpent's Tale" and Looney is currently trying to make a video to emphasize the fact that "The Rift" is not limited to any skype group. Some people in the "Secret Rift" in particular seem to view the split as a competition while the people in the "old rift/The Rift Cafe" do not and generally find the division to be rather immature and/or pointless. It's probably for the best though as a lot of people in "old rift/The Rift Cafe" do not get along well with certain members of the "Secret Rift".
* ValentinesDayEpisodes: [[AffectionateParody The Shipping Game]].
* ViolentGlaswegian: Mad Munchkin sometimes shows a few shades of this.
* VitriolicBestBuds: [=AntonyC=] and Tommy Oliver. They bicker LikeAnOldMarriedCouple in their co-review, but they obviously have a ton of respect for one another.
* WhamEpisode: "Flight of Blight" for Lightning Bliss: she tries to DePower herself of her Alicorn status... but only succeeds in creating a literal ShadowArchetype named Thunder Blight who nearly pulls KillAndReplace on her. However, while crazy events like that are kinda common, [[spoiler:this ends when Bliss gaining an understanding of her rainbow magic to destroy Blight, overcoming a large part of her PowerIncontinence she'd been suffering all this time.]]
* WhyTheFandomCantHaveNiceThings: Digibro [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5tRX246-AA made this video]] to completely slam the amount of immature and ridiculous Website/YouTube comments he got from his video, "Your Anime Sucks: Sword Art Online S1", and he is frustrated to the point where he proclaims, at the end of the video, that the replies on the next "Your Anime Sucks" videos will all be disabled.
* XCalledTheyWantTheirYBack: From "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5ehiwNBfo4 Analyst Bronies React to]] ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree Legend of Everfree]]''", upon reaching the TransformationSequence:
-->'''Cellspex:''' Okay, girls... ''[[Anime/DragonBallZ DBZ]]'' called, and said your numbers of level-up were getting ridiculous.
