** ''All'' of the music they released so far.
* BaseBreaker: Twilight Sparkle's teal, yellow and pink color scheme, [[FanNickname nicknamed Tennis Shoe Twilight]] is either the best palette for her or the worst.
** The current status of the SpiritualSuccessor. Either people are denouncing it, saying that it'll never be as good as the original with ponies, or they're optimistic that it'll be good regardless of what species the characters are.
* GameBreaker: Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy during the second livestream. Fluttershy's OneHitKill Stare was a joke from the devs [[PanderingToTheBase who knew the viewers would want to see an unfinished Fluttershy]].
** Rainbow Dash was considered this when she was revealed at Canterlot Gardens. Safe, hard-hitting normals, great pressure, a really fast dive kick, excellent mobility, and the only things she's lacking are [[GlassCannon health]] and [[LimitBreak supers]]. Granted, she's obviously incomplete, so it isn't that big of an issue.
* ItsHardSoItSucks: Some people expected this game to have simple inputs, akin to the likes of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' because most of the target audience doesn't play [[FightingGame Fighting Games.]]. So of course, when the movelist was revealed to be traditional FightingGame inputs of old, cries of this were heard on the comments page.
** Along with that, people complained about certain inputs being inherently tricky, such as two half-circle motions for a few Level 3s, or a Quarter-circle-back followed by a half-circle-forward. The developers reason for doing this, though, isn't to make the game less accessible. [[MisBlamed It's because making it so the inputs would be a single motion with two buttons (Used in games like MarvelVsCapcom) is barely allowed by the program which only allows similtaneous button presses that are precise to the millisecond.]]
* MemeticBadass: If some of the comments in one of the streams is to be believed, Gummy.
* MemeticMutation: One guy on the EVO stream attempted to type #Swag as is a typical stream thing to do. Unfortunately for him, he made a typo, and it became #Swaf instead. Cue all the stream monsters spamming Swaf and the birth of an inside meme.

** [[VideoGame/BionicCommando Bio]][[{{Marvel Vs Capcom 3}} nic]] Farm, which eventually [[AscendedMeme ascended]]
* NightmareFuel: This video of Pinkie Pie's level 3 super (Although she just stands there after using it). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPIx9u_tH8s&feature=g-u-u NO PARTY AND NO FRIENDS MAKE PINKIE A DULL PONI.]]
** As if that wasn't enough, the Canterlot Gardens build has the background change to the [[http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b68/burnfist23/gotcha.jpg infamous paint splatter background]] from ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E25PartyOfOne Party of One]]''
* ScrappyMechanic: In the Pon-E3 stream, one of the developers mentioned that characters gain extra armor when their health is low, and that this feature may be this to some players.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The news that it'll become unrelated to ''Friendship Is Magic'' kinda deflated some hype for those who really wanted to duke it out with their favorite ponies, but the fact that Creator/LaurenFaust is joining the project has softened the blow. Somewhat.
