!!''My Little Pony''
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: InUniverse examples include several characters are different from their toy and UK canon counterparts. Most noticeable is Wind Whistler being TheSpock in the cartoon but TheDitz everywhere else.
* EarWorm: Though many songs can go from terrible to decent depending on the episode, when you find a good one they tend to hit hard:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAYX1bVmz5Q Imagine You Were Friends]]
** "Oh, For a Rainy Day."
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Wind Whistler and Fizzy.
** To a lesser extent, Grogar and Surprise alongside the ''Friendship Is Magic'' crowd.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Many fans disregard the last few episodes of the series. Not because they were particularly bad as such, but rather dropping most of the main cast to market the baby ponies. The show ends without any finality regardless, but most choose to believe the series ends with the Golden Horseshoes. Being the last multi-part adventure story, the last episode to feature the core cast of characters' it's seen as a last hurrah for the show.
* FanPreferredCouple: Wind Whistler and Fizzy have always been pretty popular.
* GeniusBonus: In "The Great Rainbow Caper", Danny and Surprise get kidnapped by [[MadScientist the Gizmonks]], and proceed to destroy their lab from the inside. When they escape from it, they do so by getting inside a giant wooden horse. [[TrojanHorse Sounds familiar]]?
* HarsherInHindsight: The episode "Bright Lights" features a pop star who is an homage to Michael Jackson, and his manager steals fillies' shadows as AppliedPhlebotinum. Several years after the episode was produced, Michael Jackson himself began to face accusations of taking indecent liberties with children.
* HilariousInHindsight: [[HilariousInHindsight/MyLittlePony See here]].
* {{Moe}}: Molly, Fizzy, Sweet Stuff.
* MostWonderfulSound: The noise the ponies' hooves make when they walk.
* NarmCharm: The cartoon's shoddy animation, amusing goofs, some silly voices, and occasional broken aesops all make the show a hilarious watch. But the D and D inspired setting, creepy villains, and some downright [[BewareTheNiceOnes badass moments courtesy of the ponies]] makes the show awesome when it isn't silly.
* OneSceneWonder: In Mish Mash Melee, we get a personality-swapped Wind Whistler and Fizzy for a few glorious minutes.
* PeripheryDemographic: It's not uncommon especially after ''Friendship is Magic'' caught on to hear of male fans of this show. For many boys in the 80s and 90s, this was their first fantasy adventure cartoon.
* TheScrappy: With exceptions, most fans loathe Molly and Danny. Shady can also fall into this.
* {{Wangst}}: If you didn't feel that Shady's insecurities were warranted, then you saw her this way.
* TheWoobie: Shady, if you didn't view her as TheScrappy.

!!''Glo Friends''

* WhatAnIdiot:
** For all the trouble the Moligans go to ensnare the Glo Friends, it never once dawns on them just to use more mundane lamps, which can fueled with candles and oil.
** Glo Bug attacking the Red Ant Army by himself and promptly getting himself and his team captured and enslaved.

!!''The Potato Head Kids''

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Mr. Potato Head yet again.
