Trivia / My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic S2 E10 "Secret of My Excess"

  • Actor Allusion: The fact that Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie have the same actress is mocked a bit, when Rainbow Dash can somehow tell their identical-sounding screams apart.
  • Blooper: When Pinkie assaults Spike with cake, her Cutie Mark fails to render, leaving her with a blank flank.
  • Jossed:
    • For the most part Averted; numerous fanfic/fanart has been created to suggest what happens when Spike grows up (eg: "It Takes a Village"). For the most part, this episode just coincidentally does little to break the fanon treatment of this matter, and if anything, helps to serve it. There's probably a handful of fic and art that are broken, but the creators have said they avoid these elements to prevent them from influencing the show.
    • On the other hand, the Wonderbolts' presence within easy flying distance of Ponyville is going to wreak havoc on a number of Rainbow Dash fics.
  • Prop Recycling: The objects in Spike's hoard mentioned under Call-Back. It's unlikely that he could have obtained an identical trophy or football from ponies on the street. There's also several other elements seen from earlier episodes (the punch bowl, a scooter that looks very much like Scootaloo's (which he also attempted to take), the kitchen sink, and so on).
  • Working Title: Had two: first "Giving Dangerously", then "Attack of the 50 Foot Dragon".
