Trivia: MLP: Friendship Is Magic S2 E7 "May the Best Pet Win!"
- Colbert Bump: If the comments on YouTube are any indication, this episode was a lot of people's first exposure to Richard Wagner's ''Ride of the Valkyries".
- Or, at the very least, it was the first time they heard it in a long time.
- I Knew It: Ever since Hasbro released a Rainbow Dash toy with a turtle for a pet, fans speculated that it would be Dash's pet here. While Tank is a tortoise, not a turtle, he's close enough to count. Then again, the animation team and the toy department are completely separate (and the latter has less creative freedom), so it's most likely either a coincidence or a friendly Take That.
- Working Title: Formerly known as "The Tortoise & the Mare".
