%%AmericansHateTingle: Listed below as "Bronies Hate G3"
* AwesomeArt: Several of the series' backgrounds were quite good, as were scenes with dark lighting.
* AwesomeMusic: A couple specials have an electric guitar remix of the original My Little Pony theme.
** "Wish You Were Here," which describes Rainbow Dash's vacation to Unicornia.
** "Feeling Good", as Daffy Dazey gives Spike a bath.
** All of the Runaway Rainbow songs were good.
** "Shine On" from "Come Back, Lily Lightly"
** "Nothing Says Christmas Like A Pair of Socks" from a Very Minty Christmas. A cute little number that shows off just how ditzy and adorably cute Minty is.
** G3.5's "Somewhere Super New," as well as the main theme.
* [[AmericansHateTingle Bronies Hate G3]]: Pretty much every brony ''ever'' considers it to be the worst generation of MLP, due to the girly overtones, lack of conflict, and [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch bland characters]]. The introduction of the Core 7 and the Newborn Cuties doesn't help much either.
** BrokenBase: That said, fans of G3 laud it for being LighterAndSofter compared to G4, and for carrying on the tradition of MyLittlePonyTales' slice of life format.
* ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch: Even if they didn't see a SINGLE episode of the G3 Specials, Bronies ALWAYS complain about this.
** Despite being pretty close to Friendship is Magic in places.
* EarWorm: The theme song for the Core 7 series.
** The song ''Wish you Were Here'' from ''Greetings from Unicornia'' is a bigger ear-worm. Hear it once, and you will replay it again and again...
** "Get the Giggles" from ''Come Back Lily Lightly''.
** "Feelin' Good" from ''The Princess Promenade''.
** "That's What Makes A Friend" from ''Twinkle Wish Adventure''.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Minty was left out of the Core 7 in G3.5, but the fandom rejoiced when she was brought back in the G4 toys and some are hoping she makes an appearance in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. The ChristmasSpecial that focuses on her is often considered one of the best parts of G3.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: ''[[http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=398108599060 Pinkie Pie's Ferris Wheel Adventure]]'', which is about Pinkie Pie [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin giving her friends a ride in a ferris wheel]] with gondolas stylized as cupcakes, doesn't look so cute after [[FanFic/{{Cupcakes}} a certain fanfic]] which makes the idea of Pinkie putting her friends in cupcakes way more disturbing.

-->[[Fanfic/RainbowFactory Well, darlings, there are things we're not supposed to know.]]
* HilariousInHindsight: [[HilariousInHindsight/MyLittlePony See here]].
* LesYay: There are no male Ponies to get in the way of any RomanticTwoGirlFriendship moments, and the girls are very close this generation.
** Special mention goes to Star Flight and Heart Bright, who are "as close as two ponies can be," share the same bed, dream the same dream, and finish each other's sentences.
* NarmCharm: Certain specials like ''A Charming Birthday'', ''[[http://www.hubworld.com/watch/610729115001 The Runaway Rainbow]]'', and ''[[http://www.hubworld.com/watch/610866127001 A Very Minty Christmas]]''. Cheesy but quite cute.
* MemeticSexGod: Star Catcher is this, especially around bronies who like G3.
* TheScrappy: The general reaction to any G3.5 video is usually to the effect of "Kill it before it lays eggs!"
* MoeMoe: Pick a pony, any pony and they'll be this.
* SoBadItsGood: Generation 3 is widely considered bad, no doubt about it. But it has a certain kitsch charm, complete with gloriously nonsensical logic ("We couldn't make [[OnlySaneMan you]] a regular-sized charm bracelet, because we kept making our charms too big. So we made you a giant sized one! And then we made you a regular-sized one!"), random dancing to electro-guitar versions of the theme song, and some genuinely amusing moments when it acknowledges how incredibly ditzy and incompetent its lead characters are.
* StopBeingStereotypical: Part of the reason Bronies hate G3 so much is because it is everything they keep trying to convince their skeptical friends that [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic G4]] is not.
** Yet, if they [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch actually watched G3]] (as in ''watched'' it, not just take a quick look at it) they would see that a lot of the things that they like about Friendship is Magic is very prominent in G3, and that most of the G3 ponies (if not all of them) would fit into the FIM world perfectly, with the exact same personality they have in G3, if they would be crossed over (ignore the fact that [[OneSteveLimit some of them share a name]] for now)
* SweetDreamsFuel: Yes, yes, yes it is. The specials have so much concentrated cute and optimism it's hard not to smile by the time you see the ending credits.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Several G3 voice actresses, including Creator/TabithaStGermain, Creator/AndreaLibman, and Creator/CathyWeseluck, made the jump to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic G4]], much to the amusement of bronies who decide to ArchiveBinge on previous generations for the first time.
* TastesLikeDiabetes: Particularly 3.5.
* UncannyValley: Good lord, The Newborn Cuties. Are they human? Pony? Mutant? In any case, once you've laid eyes on them, you '''''will''''' have trouble sleeping at night.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Razzaroo and Kimono from A Charming Birthday. The most sane and levelheaded of the ponies, cute in their own way, and set up as members of Ponyville, they're never seen or mentioned after the special.
** The Core Seven. The minority that like 3.5 maintain that they could have been much better characters if they'd given time to further the generation before being canned for [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic G4]].
