* ClicheStorm: In "The Longest Wedding", DJ 3-Pones hands out well-worn truisms ("''With the power of friendship, anything is possible!''") like they're cheap cigars.
* EarWorm:
** Zorba Style from episode 26.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynA9O-ozbUY The Season 3 trailer.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: [[LargeHam The Orb]] has become really popular among the viewers.
* FandomRivalry:
** Judging from the Youtube comments, a vocal segment of ''UFP'' fans really dislike ''FriendshipIsWitchcraft'', much more than Wacarb does.
** Thankfully, others agree [[TakeAThirdOption they are both good in their own way]].
* HilariousInHindsight:
** "The Canon Has Misfired", released August 2012: Twilight asks Rarity for a stealth mission outfit, and Rarity volunteers a gimp suit. [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E5MagicDuel "Magic Duel"]], broadcast November 2012: Rarity's "dangerous mission outfit" for Fluttershy is a black, hooded suit with gratuitous bunny ears and no holes for Fluttershy's wings. ''Coincidence?'' ...Probably.
** Episode 2, "Fillen' Dem Plot Holes, Bro!" includes one caption: "I miss the days when plot hole meant something different" (i.e. the days before [[Memes/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic "plot" was slang for "pony butt"]]). Much later, "The Longest Wedding" featured the exchange:
-->'''Cadance:''' {{The power of love}} will fill all plot holes!\\
'''Shining Armor:''' Yes, Cadance! Fill my plot hole with love!
** In "Faith to Faith", Pinkie "makes Creator/LittleKuriboh proud" by quoting [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} "Shut up and take my money!"]]. While everyone else finds it hilarious, Applejack thinks it's a comedic copout. The next two episodes ("Reading to Rainbow" and "Pirate Shipping") both featured [[TheStinger stingers]] involving scenes redubbed with ''Futurama'' audio.
** "The Cheesen One" (released September 2013) suggests that cheese is important to Rainbow Dash, since it figured prominently in her mother's FinalSpeech: "Life is like a wheel of cheese... and you have to eat the cheese before it gets moldy." In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E12PinkiePride "Pinkie Pride"]] (released February 2014), a giant cheese wheel features in Rainbow Dash's birth-iverary celebration.
* TheWoobie: Poor Soarin.
