* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[AwesomeMusic/SonicGenerationsFriendshipIsTimeless See here.]]
* CrossoverShip: Played with; there isn't really any shipping between characters of the two different universes, but Shining Armor and Cadance THINK there's something going on between Sonic and Twilight. The few times they bring it up to them, though, they're completely confused.

* HilariousInHindsight: The whole Super Mode for Mane 6, after the Season 4 finale.
* TearJerker: Shining Armor's apology to Twilight over what happened in "A Canterlot Wedding."

Shadow's words from earlier echo in his mind as he fears this may be the last thing he ever says to her.]]
