- If it exists, there is pony of it. No exceptions.
- Crossing Friendship Is Magic with anything and everything has become a meme all of its own. Portal (Better Living Through Science And Ponies and plenty of other fics), Team Fortress 2 (endless Gmod works with both casts), Touhou (crossed with everything anyway, it's MLP's Japanese counterpart), Doctor Who (thanks to the popularity of Doctor Whoof), The Slender Man Mythos, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt (thanks to Twilight Sparkle and Stocking having similar haircuts and color schemes), Star Trek (thanks to John de Lancie aka Q voicing Discord), Metal Gearexplanation , and many more. And practically every character ever has been "ponified" at least once.
- MAGNETO. explanation
- In an "Evolution of a Scene", made by one of the animators on the show (for both season one and two), at the end there is an animation of pony Magneto at the gala, using the pony statue to take down the Wonderbolts while saying "WELCOME TO DIE!!!"
- Magneighto has even become an official Canon Foreigner by appearing on The Merch, specifically the◊ Magnet◊ Pony◊ shirt◊ and◊ hoodie◊ (both of which are sadly no longer available).
- Spider-Man's a brony explanation
- Congratulations! Your Twilight Sparkle has evolved into Rapidash! explanation
- Kamen Rider Fourze crossovers have begun to take hold, thanks to Gentaro's goal to befriend everyone in his school. LUNA, GRAB MY POMPADOUR!
- It has become somewhat popular to mix "Lesson Zero" with Majora's Mask, due to how the sun moves.
- "What is this fun thou speakest of?" "F" is for friends who do stuff together... explanation
- IT'S NOT JUST A BOULDER, IT'S A ROCK! explanation
- Are you feeling it now, Mr. Krabs? explanation
- In general, if the fandom can connect an FiM meme to one from SpongeBob, they will do so.
- The Engineer is a Spy! explanation
- Going with the "Princess Cadence is X" meme below, there's "Cadence is Spy!" explanation
- THIS is what happens when you BUCK a STRANGER in the FLANK! explanation

- Daft Pony explanation
- X Y is best Y explanation
- X Y is worst Y explanation
- Jedi ponies explanation
- Rainbow Dash is Daredevil explanation
- LIKE A FAUST! explanation
- A shot of Pinkie Pie waxing to Rainbow Dash about delicious cider looked uncannily like the "X, X Everywhere" meme. Fans pounced.
- Thanks to the Sonic Rainboom, there are videos that use some Gundam BGMs on a clip of Rainbow Dash doing the Sonic Rainboom in the episode of the same name. Examples: Unicorn NT-D mode, Super Mode, Hyper Mode, Final Mission ~QUANTUM BURST~ and FIGHT being the main examples.
- As of Season 3, the new Littlest Pet Shop cartoon airs right after MLP FiM. The show shares quite a few of MLP's voice actors and other staff (in laymare's terms, Applejack voices the main human girl, Rarity voices a skunk, etc.), and then somepony discovered Zoe Trent happens to look quite a bit like Twilight Sparkle (resulting in the Fan Nickname Twilight Barkle), allowing for insane crossover fun.
- Thanks to the fact that Sweetie Belle's voice actor plays Minecraft (and suffered a Rage Quit while doing so). There are a few pictures of Sweetie Belle in Minecraft herself (not counting the countless pixel art). It even inspired an animation.
- Ponification / Ponified / [To] Ponify explanation
- Humanization / Humanized / [To] Humanize explanation
- Nolan North/Saints Bro [[labelnote:explanation]]In Equestria Girls there was a background human who wore a purple sweater and a scarf with the fleur-de-lis. /MLP/ made comparisons with the Third Street Saints from Saints Row, who use that colour and symbol, and dubbed him "Saints Bro". When Saints Row IV came out and Nolan North was revealed as one of the voice options, the connection was also made.
- Bass and his robotic wolf Treble appearing in the next episode of Season 4.
- Don't Mine at Night Explanation
- Two of Equestria Daily's most well-known moderators, Cereal Velocity and Sethisto, have a serious thing for unicorns. Cereal firmly believes that "Rarity is the best pony!", while Sethisto firmly believes that "Trixie is the best pony"! The unicorn-love extends to their newest blogger Phoe, who runs the Artist Training Grounds and seems to have a serious crush on Lyra Heartstrings. Pretty much every ATG day has at least a few drawings referencing her obsession with Lyra using that day's theme. And now we have this◊.
- *cue happy theme song* explanation
- Roboshi, Anchors, & yellowtdash are universal constants/fav'd this explanation
- They are typically considered the ponibooru "mascots", as they are the three most known members of ponibooru.
- They have a tumblr which can be found here. 
- Roboshi is credited with being the originator of faving whereas anchors is considered the fastest with a capped record of 2,000+ per day, Yellow is an artist who does the artwork behind the tumblr.
- Faustpony loves her Subway sandwiches. explanation
- And on that note..."Subway — eat flesh."
- It's not just Lauren; many other canon ponies have been shopped into similar fashions, as well.
- Ask Tumblrs / "Ask [X]" / "[X] Answers" explanation
- "MAKE IT HAPPEN" explanation
- December 9th is National Child Violence Day! explanation
- Nazi Ponies explanation
- Speaking of Nazis, Rarity's line "I didn't know you could burn juice!" is frequently misheard as "I didn't know you could burn Jews!" (Which gets even more bizarre in light of the Jewish Rarity meme...)
- The fact that whilst she is speaking this line, Rarity's mother is holding her hoof up like a Nazi salute doesn't help matters at all.
- And now Applejack's getting in on the fun. Racist barn, racist barn...
- CHIKUBI explanation
- Aniki. explanation
- Air Wife. explanation
- Applejack is an ikemen explanation
- The Brony of Happiness explanation
- RandallJack explanation
- Setting clips of MLP: FiM to audio of other things, the more Hot-Blooded or macho the better: Ponycraft 2, The Elder Scrolls VI: Equestria, Call Of Cutie: Blank Ops, Pony Effect 2, (surely inevitably) 300 Ponies, Friendship Is Magic At World's End, The Rainbow Knight, Lord of the Ponies, Van Sparkle, Inglourious Ponies, P for Pinketta, Pony Rangers Zeo, Space Marene, Twilight Sparkle is Still Alive (and its sequel, Nightmare Moon Only Wants You Gone), My Little Eve: Spaceships are Magic, Fallout: New Canterlot, Pony 2 Assasins of Kings, Fluttershy Island, Soar, KILL SPIKE Vol 1, Top Wing, Tengen Toppa Pony Lagann, Spike Fights The Power, Puella Magi PONY Magica (Complete with Wonderbolt-flavored Morning Rescue), Meet the Ponies, Clash of the Ponies, When the Ponies Cry...

(We're still waiting for My Little Nanoha: Befriending Is Magic'', though.)

- Edgar Wright, the director for the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World film, posted Spike Pilgrim vs. The World, Trot Fuzz and Attack the Stable on his blog, and on the official Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Film and Attack the Block Facebook pages.
- The official Top Gear blog actually made note of My Little Top Gear: Friendship is Ambitious But Rubbish. This was duly followed by giving other Top Gear clips the treatment, with more accurate casting of which Pony is which Top Gear presenter.
- WeLoveFine is a T-shirt company with lots of Pony based shirts. It had a contest going on for more new pony designs and one of the big images was Lyrical Twilight
- The Pony Polka. explanation
- Applejack and Rarity making spooky noises in "Look Before You Sleep". "Oooooooo!
- Dubbing over a character with the voice of a past role of their actors, for example Twilight Sparkle as Princess Clara or Juliet Starling, Spike as Near, Pinkie singing the Misa song, Chief Thunderhooves complaining about ponies in METAL BOXES, and of course Discord as Q. Checking the Trivia page, this has become a Running Gag in the Hey, It's That Voice! section.
- "Are you a spy!?" explanation
- Watching the episodes, dubbed (official or fandubbed) in different languages, in part or in whole. Watch Rarity WHIIINING in Japanese! Or "Flutterguy" in French! How about "Cupcakes" in Russian? (the song, not the gore-tastic fanfic) Or the main theme in Greek? Or Lyra Heartstrings speaking in the official Italian dub. Or "Giggle at the Ghostie" in Polish.
- Seductive Ponies explanation
- Seemingly random videos on Youtube will occasionally get a high-voted comment to the effect of "ponies brought me here". Presumably the ponies must have surprisingly varied taste. Explanation
- These videos will often have the comment "This video is now about ponies."
- Somewhat related, but pick a Hey Ocean music video. Any Hey Ocean music video. You'll find tons of comments that pretty much amount to "Oh my gosh, it's Applejack/Rainbow Dash!"explanation
- It's now practically routine for someone to shout "Lookout! Incoming Bronies!" whenever a video contains a reference that the latest episode just made.
- *cut to credits* explanation
- [Character Name].mp4. Interestingly, all of the Mane Six have at least one moment where their eyes roll around in a daze, usually in response to a sudden shock or blow to the head. For some reason, these scenes have been looped and then set to Parov Stelar's "Catgroove".
- When I'm X explanation
- And somewhat related, X Sauce. explanation

- Various supercuts of every instance of the word "X" on the show, where "X" has been "pony", "apple", and the names of the major characters.
- "Teens React to My Little Pony", which led to "Bronies React to Teens React to My Little Pony"
- Paper Poniesexplanation
- The SCARIEST CAVE in Equestria.explanation
- PONY VERBS THE NOUN explanation
- Since there is a toy for it, a few fanarts depict Applejack with a pink pickup truck, always with a cardboard cutout of Twilight Sparkle in the truckbed.
- EHT'S TWALAHT SPORKLES BAHLEWN explanation
- "No one man should have all that pony!" explanation
- DAMN YOU, HABSRO!! explanation
- PRAISE HABSRO!! explanation
- The Doggie Doo Game. explanation
- Creepily enough, there was already a video mashing up the theme song and another ad for the same game four months prior to the episode.
- "Fanon names are best names." explanation
- "Toy names are best names." explanation
- Some fans take a third option and combine the two, making one or the other a surname, a full name, or a nickname.
