Trivia: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic S2 E21 "Dragon Quest"
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Finn, how did you become a purple dragon?
- Name's the Same: To the Video Game Dragon Quest. There's no battling slime though.
- Recycled Script: Though it could be a possible Shout-Out, the fact remains that this episode shares nearly the same plot as the My Little Pony 'N Friends episode Spike's Search. Spike realizes one day that he is very different from his pony friends and feels lonely. His friends suggest finding other dragons like him and want to go with him, but he feels he must do this alone. After finding the dragons who intimidate and mock him, one dragon from the group decides to give him a chance to join them. After proving various tests to gain their respect, they start to accept Spike. However, before he can be considered a real dragon in their eyes, he must harm a group of innocents which he cannot go through and eventually leaves the dragons to stay with the ponies.
