%%Note: Please do not add Celestia as she has been discussed and ruled not to qualify in this thread: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=6vic3f9h1cy5qivsenw8llok&page=1. Visit this thread for more details.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Greg says in [[http://www.dawnsomewhere.com/2013/04/20/site-neglect/ this blog entry]] that this is happening to ''Rainbow Factory'', that an increasing number of people think that Greg created the story, and Aurora Dawn was stealing the idea from him. He attempts to rectify this by linking to the original fanfic, and vowing to credit Aurora the character as Aurora Dawn's creation every time she's used, such as in the short "Investment Losses".
* BetterThanCanon: Many find Dashie's versions of infamous Fanfics much better than the originals, especially ''Cupcakes'' and ''Rainbow Factory''.
* CanonDefilement: There is no Sweetie Belle!
* CrazyAwesome: Pinkie Pie.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: The "Rainbow Dash presents" stories.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: [[http://youtu.be/PpYAHP7YK8A Pinkie is hooked on a feeling.]]
** Smarty Pants' VillainSong, the colorfully titled "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7oKtZKIS-E&feature=player_embedded Bones and Skin]]".
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5Tnqisce7E Rainbow Fun Factory]]".
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mBa0civN5Y Tubby Wubby Pony Waifu]]".
** Hell, pretty much any song from this series, as well as a lot of the BGM from ''Mentally Advanced''.
* DudeNotFunny: FriendshipIsWitchcraft's creators, in response to a joke Greg made during discussions regarding a crossover for ''Captain Hook The Biker Gorilla''. The joke in question: "[[http://fimflamfilosophy.tumblr.com/post/23401251985 There is an interesting thing about being of the female gender. Itís that if you donít choke on a dick at least once, then odds are you either arenít trying very hard or you need a new boyfriend.]]" The crossover...didn't go through.
* EarWorm: "Rainbow Fun Factory".
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBgKP5erzWQ "Sinking Ships]]"
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Thrackerzod and Aurora.
* FandomRivalry: Has a pretty big one with FriendshipIsWitchcraft. Especially when the creators attempted to do a crossover and failed.
* GeniusBonus: There's a quite a few of them.
** In "Griffon the Brush-Off", Pinkie tries to spray Fluttershy with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aqua_regia aqua regia.]] Aqua regia is a highly corrosive liquid, able to dissolve gold and platinum.
** During "Winter Wrap-Up", Twilight and Rarity's conversation is derailed by discussion of several words with "hippo" (or "hypo") in them; some of those words are rather obscure.
** Twilight's description of the perils of intestinal surgery is scarily accurate.
** Twilight says that Apple Bloom was "born from consanguineous mating".[[note]] ''Consanguineous'' comes from the Latin word for blood, and means "descended from the same ancestor". In simpler terms, she's calling Apple Bloom inbred.[[/note]]
* GrowingTheBeard: Captain Hook The Biker Gorilla.
* HilariousInHindsight: "Rainbow Dash Presents" becomes even funnier with "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep Read It And Weep]]" announced.
** ''Rainbow Dash Presents: Captain Hook the Biker Gorilla'' begins with a TakeThat at EquestriaDaily and their bias towards ''FriendshipIsWitchcraft'', including the ''SpaceJam'' remix of "Pinkie's Brew" making front page [[SoOkayItsAverage for no real reason]]. Eventually, a ''SpaceJam'' remix of "Rainbow Fun Factory" made it to Equestria Daily's front page, perhaps as a result of said complaints.
*** Pretty much everything Pony-related Greg and his team make ends up on EQD's front-page nowadays, including ''Captain Hook the Biker Gorilla'', which was begrudgingly given its own post with a descriptor saying simply "You win." Ė apparently a number of EQD's users had also been complaining about the site's pro-''Witchcraft'' bias.
** "Rainbow Dash Presents: Cupcakes" has Pinkie cut off Rainbow Dash's wings with the intent on using them to make a hat. And now WeLoveFine has a [[http://www.welovefine.com/4668-rainbow-dash-winged-baseball-hat.html Rainbow Dash Winged Baseball Hat]] for sale.
** Rarity's Father is an [[BoomerangBigot Earth Pony]].
* JerkassWoobie: Twilight, after we find out exactly what Celestia did to her.
* LesYay: Pinkie Pie falls in love with Gilda's {{Jerkass}} tendencies, and she throws a party to try to tear her and Rainbow Dash apart.
** In ''Rainbow Dash Presents: Haunting Nightmare'', Pinkie is constantly coming on to Twilight, and even tries to [[SlippingAMickey drug her drink]].
-->'''Pinkie''': So, does it hurt when you run through [[ThirdPersonPerson Pinkie's]] dreams? [[VerbalTic Yes]].
** Finally confirmed in Episode 12:
-->'''Rarity''': (''regarding her breakup'') It's the way colts are, but we deal with what we're given.
-->'''Pinkie''': [[ThirdPersonPerson Pinkie is lesbian.]]
* MemeticMolester: [[RonTheDeathEater Princess Celestia]], who's also a tyrant. It's not for nothing that Twilight is terrified of her.
** Dazzler is likely an invocation of this trope. "GET IN MY VAN!!!"
* MemeticMutation: [[LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple "THE HEAD IS BACKWARDS!"]]
* MoralEventHorizon: [[http://petirep.deviantart.com/art/Mrs-Buzzy-Isn-t-Real-243985969 Mrs. Buzzy]]
* MorePopularSpinoff: ''Rainbow Dash Presents'' (not that ''Mentally Advanced'' isn't also popular).
* NightmareFuel: Celestia's appearance in episode 8. With ominous music playing in the background, her [[EvilSoundsDeep deep, threatening]] voice, and Twilight literally ''screaming in terror'' in her head while [[StepfordSmiler smiling]], it's hard not to fear her.
** Twilight's NightmareSequence in ''Rainbow Dash Presents: Haunting Nightmare''.
*** Applejack and Rarity being chased by [[EldritchAbomination Smarty Pants]] during his VillainSong.
* RonTheDeathEater: Princess Celestia gets this in ''spades''.
* StopHelpingMe: Rarity suffers from this when everypony tries to cheer her up after she gets dumped.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Some people claimed this over the new theme song.
* TheWoobie: Even when played for laughs, Fluttershy still manages to be this.
** Aurora in ''Rainbow Dash Presents: Captain Hook the Biker Gorilla''.
** JerkassWoobie: Twilight, due to her constant abuse by [[EvilOverlord Princess]] [[RonTheDeathEater Celestia]].
