Season Four will be the final season of Friendship Is Magic.Because Four Is Death, and the fourth season of Generation 4 ends in 2014. No, actually it has more to do with cold, hard math. Season Three was a massive Base Breaker, with no reports of new bronies having started watching during Season Three, and it's quite possible that the existing brony population has dropped by a third. Season Four is set to be more of the same. Although it may seem like losing the Periphery Demographic is no big deal, it's a sign of something much more serious, that the show is slowly slipping into Girl-Show Ghetto. It is a place where good shows go to die. Twicorn, C&D'ing Fighting is Magic and Equestria Girls were all symptoms of severe Executive Meddling played straight. What many fail to appreciate is how Lauren Faust's tenure as Head of MLP Brand Redevelopment gave the production team and fans unprecedented independence from a public corporation's executives. For example, Glimmer Wings Rarity in S 1 E 16 "Sonic Rainboom" was mandated from the top as a tie-in for the toy. Only Lauren Faust could have burnt those wings off in such an unflattering way and gotten away with it. Remember how passionately she insisted Rarity to be a fashion designer, not a clothing-obsessed shopaholic? It is because of her will, and her will alone that the show has been so popular with the target demographic and everyone else. Hasbro's shortsightness will kill Lauren Faust's vision. There are only two options for averting that: A) The production team gathers the will to do something revolutionary, something along the lines of declaring independence from the crown, granting full suffrage to cattle and sheep, and founding the United States of Equestria. Not going to happen. B) They bring Lauren Faust back. Unlikely, because she did not leave for no reason. Alas, all good things must come to an end. It's been quite a ride, a gift from our brave /co/mrades, and a much appreciated one at that. Perhaps one day, there'll be some other ostensibly young girl's show to pick up from where we all left off. Milky Way and the Galaxy Girls, anyone?
The Second Coming of Lauren Faust...As director, ushering in a Big Damn Movie, big enough for a theatrical Q3 2013-14 (summer) release. With massive cross-demographic appeal, from the target audience of young girls and their families, to the typical Brony and their friends; big enough to permanently codify Lauren Faust's vision for media and society, entertain the target audience, establish Hasbro Studios, and provide an opportunity for Hasbro to cash in on the Periphery Demographic. Also, settling any Internet Debates once and for all. tl;dr, if Lauren Faust is commissioned by Hasbro again, it will be to write, direct or produce a MLP:FiM feature film. With Transformers, G.I. Joe and even Battleship receiving film adaptations, it's only fitting that their most popular franchise for men receives one done right.
In keeping with the sadly dropped Magical Girl elements of the series, the sequence where Rarity's designs were revealed in "Suited for Success" were recycled from ideas of what the mane cast's henshin sequences were going to be.Because, why waste an idea for a cool visual?
The show runs on USTSpecifically between the main characters. Hence it's popularity with young men.
"Feeling Pinkie Keen" is an elaborate MST3K Mantra.The whole episode seems to encourage simply accepting the silliness inherent in a show about magical horses that can control the weather using force of will,and to point out the absurdity of over analysis of the show (Not the fun kind of course). The fact that the episode was accused of trying to discourage skepticism is pretty hilarious in this context. Because,There simply no room for a no nonsense/ serious attitude when trying to enjoy this show.There is no deep hidden agenda to the show. "They should really just relax".
In the second part of the pilot for Friendship is Magic, all the obstacles are, in fact, a Secret Test of CharacterNote how all the 'obstacles' seemed tailor-made for each aspect of the Elements of Harmony. Twilight was saved when she trusted that Applejack was being honest, the Manticore just needed Fluttershy's kindness, the creepy trees returned to normal when Pinkie Pie (followed by the rest of the ponies) laughed at them, the sea serpent's mustache was restored by Rarity's generosity, and to fix the bridge, Rainbow Dash had to prove her loyalty. Coincidental Plot Tailored to the Party, or some kind of gambit on Nightmare Moon/Princess Luna's part?
"Call of the Cutie" has a secret message about virginity.Think about it. Apple Bloom is the last one in her class without cutie mark, so she's so obsessed with getting one as fast as possible just for the sake of having it that she is willing to have just about everything for her cutie mark (including eating cupcakes) even though this decision will affect her whole life. Then at the end, she learns that earning your cutie mark is way more serious than just keeping up with others and decides to wait for the right moment. Does This Remind You of Anything?
This show will become fairly popular in JapanSome western animation shows like The Powerpuff Girls became popular in Japan. The same thing might occur with this show. Although I'm not sure if My Little Pony itself has ever been introduced there...
The mane six ponies will face off against evil versions of themselves.Lauren Faust stated that the mane six ponies are based off of six different archetypes of Romance Genre Heroines, listed in the Main Tropes page. If the show goes for the standard "alternate dimension" episode, the main group will be forced against basically Psycho Rangers versions on themselves based on the villainous versions of their archetypes:
Counterpart to the above—we've seen the start of a team of Psycho Rangers ponies and non-ponies.So far, The Great and Powerful Trixie and Gilda are basically evil versions of Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash—Trixie having Twilight's talent but lack of humility and willingness/eagerness to study, Gilda having Rainbow Dash's athleticism and skill with none of her loyalty. As more episodes roll along, evil/jackass counterparts of the mane six will show up, first as Long-Lost Uncle Aesop or Monster of the Aesop characters, and later acting in concert for whatever obscure reason.
In continuation with the previous two Guesses, The main cast will meet Bizzaro versions of themselves.If Hasbro is thinking about making more money off the show, then they might want to shoehorn in more characters; They've already introduced some pony toys that are recolors of established characters, so why not include them as actual cast members? They aren't evil, but they are eerily similar, but different, in both personality and appearance. They don't need to be strictly based on the toys either, background ponies can be bumped to secondary character status.
Speaking of Bizarro versions...The mane cast will somehow open up a portal to Bizarro Ponyville, which is located in the same dimension as the Bizarros from Sealab 2021. Exactly what you think will happen happens.
Building off of the WMG above this one...The mane cast will "go through the looking glass" and find their Elements Of Harmony counterparts (Elements of Discord/Chaos/Havoc, maybe?) The looking-glass Ponyville could be a gritty, almost Crapsack World mega-city, to compare/contrast with the small-town Sugar Bowl Ponyville. Here's some suggestions; add, delete, and modify this WMG as you wish.
Following on the trend...We have already got a glance into the dark side of several ponies. This will eventually lead to an episode where all mane six ponies turn psycho simultaneously, only to be slapped back to their senses by the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
The "evil counterparts" will be the Shadow Archetype sort.Rather than opposites, these counterparts represent the worst each of the Mane Six has the potential to be, what they would have become if their lives had taken a wrong turn somewhere.
Someone with a role in the show keeps track of what the internet spews out.Specifically, things which can be addressed in the show. What with everyone's favorite screwy-eyed pony, it's probably not a stretch to assume SOMEONE is watching.
Each pony in Suited For Success represented a specific kind of Executive Meddling.
Several characters invoke the Seven Deadly SinsTake a look at several of the characters and tell me if they don't invoke at least one of them sooner or later.
Several characters invoke the Seven Heavenly VirtuesHeck, two of them are Elements of Harmony.
One or more of the people who work on the series read these entries. Maybe even Lauren Faust herself. They may even be One of Us!It's been semi-confirmed that Lauren Faust has been to the /co/ board of 4chan. It's common knowledge that she does read (and often reply to) the comments left by the series' fans (and her fans) on her deviantART page. And yes, I know she has stepped down from her previous position as Executive Producer (I think she's Consulting Producer now...) It will be interesting to see how many references to the fandom, its memes and its Fanon will be in the second season...
The characters from the tv show and toy series are from two different universesIt would explain why the main cast looks slightly different, why many ponies seen on the show don't appear in the toyline or vice-versa, why Celestia is pink (as well as act strange), AJ's lack of/different versions of her hat, the many pets/animals not seen in the show, the character's toy versions doing things their cartoon counterparts probably won't be doing, among many others. The only thing linking the two is the artwork on the box, which is most of the time just a recolor anyway, mainly on Hasbro's fault. Yeah, yeah, I know their supposed to be cheap recolors, but take a good look at the ponies on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Not only do a majority all have the same face, but there are recolors everywhere! Not necessarily the main cast but a good deal of the background ponies, but now I'm getting off track.
Someone who works on the show is writing fanfics to make certain things Hilarious in Hindsight and troll usPossibly multiple someones, posting under multiple aliases. Take a look at these examples...
Lauren Faust made a Deal with the Devil to make the show such a success, even with those who would be sneering at it.The incredible internet success that shines into the darkest corners, the way it rolls over any objections and assimilates the Periphery Demographic: demonic forces are at work here. Come on, it's right there in her name!
Alternatively, Lauren Faust made a deal with an Angel(or some other powerful, Always Lawful Good entity. Do we have a trope for that?)It agreed to make her show so good, that it would steamroll all opposition, as long as she agreed to use it to spread the virtues of friendship and love to our rapidly degrading world. Plus, what devil would not only condone, but assist a show who's main effect on humanity has been to encourage love and tolerance?
Yet Another Alternately, Lauren Faust made a CONTRACT with Kyubey of all beings.She made a wish based around reviving My Little Pony. The upside is, thus far the reboot has been wildly sucessful. The downside is, with this much hope generated by the show, the Despair Backlash is going to be a serious doozy. On the other hand, the disproportionate fan nerdrage reactions might be the Equal Despair to her massive hope creation.
Meghan Mc Carthy is the original G1 Megan, and Lauren got her in on the show to make sure the stories are told properly.Clearly the "h" was dropped from her in-show avatar in the G1 cartoon for various legal reasons.
The Periphery Demographic gets a nod in the toyline.Hasbro's got more than enough experience with boys' toys, they can just apply some ideas from the Transformers toyline. Marketing a line of fully-poseable Ponies as "Deluxe Figures", in two sizes corresponding to Deluxe and Voyager class, while the actual packaging still resembles the rest of the MLP line from a distance. The mane cast and any supporting characters come in Deluxe size, while Princess Celestia, Nightmare Moon and ponies with large props (eg. Applejack and a horse-drawn cart that unfolds into an apple stand) come under Voyager class, complete with lights and sounds. To help differentiate, these toys actually have the full title on the boxes (including "Friendship Is Magic" unlike the mainline thus far).
Lauren steps from being in charge because she realisated that others could lead this show in better directionMost of fandom prefer Slice of Life plot, many don't like much pilot episodes, only episodes writen by Lauren, some her ideas for show (like Magical Girl stuff) are not thing what fandom whant. So she decided to let others to take charge and be only part of creative team for show what can be best for everypony.
Every species has their own elements, and each holder resembles one of a different species' element.Ponies of course, being the dominant species, have elements relevant to keeping the world at peace. Please help me finish these!
The stories in "The Cutie Mark Chronicles" were either false, mostly false or the actual episode never happened.Think about it, this episode came later in the first season as the fourth-to-last episode and outside of a few minor aspects mentioned or hinted at in some of the other episodes (such as Rainbow Dash having done the Sonic Rainboom before or Pinkie's hair going flat), nothing that was mentioned in this episode's stories has appeared elsewhere in the series, so it's hard to be sure that ANY of these stories are reliable yet. Basically saying, until there's more proof that any of this actually happened, everything we know about their past is wrong. Fluttershy was never from Cloudsdale, Pinkie Pie was never from a Rock Farm, Applejack was never interested in the high-class life, Twilight never had parents, that kinda thing. There are a few different theories behind this claim, some of which will probably tie together:
Peter Cullen will play Starswirl The Bearded.Mostly because it would be awesome.
MLP's success with males 18-25 was the result of a Faustian Bargain made by show's creator Lauren FaustThe usual suspects are Beelzebub and Mephistopheles, but its possible that newer demons were contacted, such as Anon: Lord of the Trolls. The subsequent 4-chan backlash might be the result of the devil getting his due. And fandoms such as this are vulnerable to massive fandom backlash, we'll see how the second season goes...
Celestia's reputation for imprisoning people will skyrocket after the premiere is over.Except now people will be imprisoned in, like, trees. Or statues. Or whatever.
The popularity of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic will motivate Hasbro to renew the copyrights on the G1 ponies......leading to a Generation Xerox flashback episode starring the concept art ponies.
Discord is the cause of animation errors in the showMissing cutie marks? Discord. Disappearing and reappearing saddle bags? Discord. Donny Psyclops? Discord trolling Blues. I think you see where I'm going with all this.
Lauren was a fan of Daria
The Return Of Harmony was originally meant to be a three parter or a movieThe episodes seem a tad bit rushed, like there's a lot more stuff they WANTED to put in but couldn't with the time limits per episode and Hasbro wouldn't permit them to make three or a movie.
Tom Kane will voice in the show at some point......But only briefly as Angel, Fluttershy's bunny, Fluttershy will hit her head at some point and hear Angel speaking like Mr. Herriman.
The show's success comes from Lauren Faust using an Artifact of DoomSometime prior to working on the series, Lauren stumbled onto an artifact, which she held onto while working on the series; which is part of what lead to the show's success. The artifact in question is likely something along the lines of Walt Disney's paintbrush, which Lauren's use of it somehow fell under the radar of Warehouse 13; hence why it hasn't been recovered yet.
There will be a made-for-TV movie.A lot of popular TV shows end up getting made-for-TV movies, not to mention the fact that the My Little Pony franchise has always been putting out movies. There will almost certainly be a movie using the characters and story of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, seeing as how it's the most well-recieved shows out of the entire franchise. It will likely be a Big Damn Movie that involves the Mane cast having to save the entire world.
There Will be a Rule 63 EpisodeThis show is full of Ascended Fanon, and there is precedent. I think a Rule 63 cast would be:
the series's success will led to a Made For Tv movieand one or more of the next things will happen:
Obsidian Entertainment will release a video game based on the franchise.See here.
The series will at some point get a Point And Click Adventure Game.Filled with plenty of fandom injokes and references, and would be episodic.
THE ENTIRE SHOW is a storyThe "Once upon a time in the magical land of Equestria" story isn't the "Old Mare's Tale", it is the entire show! In the final scene of the show, we will see the same book closing.
Celestia's Parents will be seen in the show, either in a photo or flashback...They won't just look like Lauren and Craig, but they'll behave similarly to this picture.
The Ponies will appear as humans at some point.Some of them fulfilling Fanon such as Twilight Sparkle being black and Luna being pale (if she appears.).
This series will spawn a movie.It will probably be direct-to-DVD, but there will at some point be a full-length movie that will be made for this series. Perhaps several.
Later seasons will have more Sondheim Shout Out songs.Season One already has two songs that are clear takes on songs from two of his shows. Clearly it's only a matter of time before we get songs such as Everybody Ought to Have a Laugh by Pinkie Pie, or Poor Kitten by Fluttershy.
Discord was behind many of the episodes of Season 1.He was using his powers to bring chaos to make it easier for him to be free.
The next two part episode's ending will be an homage to The Empire Strikes Back.The ending of the Nightmare Moon two parter had a The Phantom Menace esque party ending complete with similar music and a couple similar shots, the Discord two parter ended with a shot for shot homage to the ending of A New Hope with similar music and iris out, by this train of thought the next two parter will either go for the later two prequels or later two original trilogy.
The writers are posting the synopses of future episodes on the WMG page to mess with us.Take a look at some of the theories in the Season 2 WMG page. Some of them are rather specific for theories, to the point where some of them specifically name characters that the writers predict will appear in future episodes. But if they wanted things to turn out that specifically, you'd think they'd just write fanfiction. Maybe the reason they're so specific is because that is exactly how they'll turn out? Maybe the writers go on this site, pretending to be Bronies, and sneak in the plots for future episodes onto the Season 2 WMG page!
If there are any further waves of blind bag toys, at least one wave will include fillies.The brushable toys already include a few fillies, and the third and fourth waves of the blind bags include stallions, who aren't in the brushables at all. Perhaps fillies will be in the next wave(s).
The song that was leaked on the weekend of November 5th will eventually be released on a CD album.The song's title is unofficially known as "Smile, Smile, Smile" or "Pinkie Pie's Smile Song". Because of its length (over three and a half minutes) and the fact that contextless it doesn't seem to fit into a story, it may be an Image Song that reflects Pinkie's character rather than be part of an episode.
One of the upcoming Shout! Factory DVDs will include a full-length Equestria Girls music video.
The third season will be the last one for Friendship is Magic.
The series will officially end with a Big Damn Movie.
The reason Fluttershy, Applejack, and Pinkie Pie haven't been getting as many Season 2 episodes is because...
Season 1 episodes will eventually be updated with assets from Season 2 for consistency
The recent CMC episodes are rehashed scripts from the preschool spinoff.It's mentioned in What Could Have Been that Lauren Faust had wanted to make a spinoff with the Cutie Mark Crusaders, appealing to younger audiences. 3 recent episodes- "Sisterhooves Social", "The Cutie Pox", and "Family Appreciation Day"- all feature the Cutie Mark Crusaders in a starring role, and are generally lighter than usual episodes. It's possible some scripts were made for the spinoff, but when the show wasn't made, the scripts were remade into normal Fi M episodes.
The writers subtly turned the very title of the show into something that encourages the target demographic to rise above the minimalist expectations that the middle generations of the show placed on them when playing with the toys."MY little pony"... "MY"..."MINE", obviously the target demographic is supposed to experience a sense of ownership of some sort over characters most of whom are acting as fairly functional adults. Making the ponies adults in some sense in this version allowed more advanced plotlines. Ones that call out to the target demographic with what they COULD be in years to come (while the CMC remind them not to fret over it), rather than who they want to be in the short term (as a mostly-younger cast would tend towards). So how is this not screwed up at a fairly basic level, thus invalidating any lessons that might be learned internalizing the lessons of the show TOO well? Because the character who uses the phrase the most, despite her relative lack of screen time is Celestia... that's right, the benevolence, and delicate batman gambits of "her momjesty" is what the creators twisted the meaning of the inherited title around to mean. They are LITERALLY making into the highest "who I want to be when I go up" rolemodel, the character who FIGURATIVELY an adult Winston Churchhill would have "wanted to be when he grew up". This could even apply as an upgrade over the original series, not just the middle generations, although that is less certain since Megan was actually highly competent as a leader.
The characters' moments of temporary insanity have a covert educational purpose.It's intended to make it easier for preteens to talk about mental illness. Because of the nature of the show, a full-scale Very Special Episode of "what to do if a friend or family member goes crazy" would be Narmful at best, and the writers are probably more interested in making the characters interesting than in clinical accuracy in any case. However, the cast's various moments of Sanity Slippage, while not accurate portrayals of any specific disorder, do show that mental health issues aren't restricted to Talkative Loons and cartoon supervillains. FUN Song, as well as Rainbow Dash's line from Sonic Rainboom (Best day ever!) is a reference to the Spongebob song of the same name. Also, Applebloom's line from The Cutie Pox, (I call this one, the Hoopla!). Anything else?
The book series featured in the episode "Read It And Weep" was originally going to be a parody of Harry Potter instead of Indiana Jones but they couldn't afford to get the rights.As opposed to the Harry Potter books and movies, which are recent, the rights for Indiana Jones are not as popular and are more classis, leading more people to recognize them. What a better example of a series getting young children interested in reading than Harry Potter for an episode about Rainbow Dash discovering a Guilty Pleasure and wondering why she'd so interested in something against her nature? At least they managed to fit in the "Griffin's Goblet" title at the end of the episode as a nod.
Next series will be targeted at older audience.The next generation or half generation will be reimaged for an older audience and will have a much stronger continuity. This next version may be more of a soap opera, maybe pushing the content rating as high as PG.
Equestria is a real place, and Lauren Faust goes there to plagiarize events and ponies' lives into episode scripts.
Twilight Sparkle was originally intended to actually be Put on a Bus to Hell at the end of "Lesson Zero".Twilight's Sanity Slippage would have been so severe that she'd be too far gone by the end of the episode and put in an insane asylum. Her friends, in her honor, vow to carry on her friendship research. The season finale would have a case of The Bus Came Back, in that Twilight would somehow escape and her friends would've had to battle her. Eventually, she'll discover her friends' friendship reports, finally come to her senses, and have a tragic My God, What Have I Done? moment. She gives a heartfelt apology to everypony and promises to try to work on her neuroses.
Rainbow Dash was originally supposed to be male.Everything about Rainbow Dash seems to suggest 'guy', to the point where 'her' gender is an Informed Attribute. Either Executive Meddling dictated that all the ponies be female, or Faust knew what the fanbase would do with one male pony and five female ponies. Unfortunately, given the rising popularity of fictional homosexuality in western fandoms, this may have backfired...
Season three was shorter so they would have more time to work on an MLP:FIM feature film.
Voice actors that will later appear in the series will include...
This show has ruined the Marvel Comics cartoon universeBitchy side fan coming in, but here me out. This show demonstrated that it was possible to do a continuity light show without a real overarching plot but still become unbelievably popular. When the executives at Marvel saw this, they thought it could become a perpetual money machine for people to follow forever. And thus, Earth's Mightiest Heroes probably will end up more like Ultimate Spiderman all because of a bunch of ponies.
A side effect of Derpygate was increased sales for the Friendship Express DVDIt has the original, non-Changeling Derpy, after all.
Especially since Lauren Faust is no longer on the show, the crew has or will have a set of vulgar Ascended Meme background ponies that they never, ever mention online or in front of executives.For example, a pony with an alouette (game lark) cutie mark named Sugar Tits: His talent is cooking small game birds with delicious sweet glazes, but if anyone "not in the know" asks, he's something like "Sky Lark". If it's already happening, it probably started because of "Derpygate".
Season 3 will not start until November, 2012.I think so because the new MLP:FiM comic is scheduled to be released in November. The comic debut is probably meant to coincide with the season's first episodes in order to boost sales. The Aquabats! Super Show! in "Cowboy Android!" and "Showtime!" as a cameo so why not make it go full circle? It can be as simple as a reference to one of their songs or even a background character that looks suspiciously like one of the band members or Lil' Bat.
Season 3 is being delayed due to the sweeps.Season three, apparently, will air sometime in November. Guess when the sweeps are... November. It's completely normal for TV networks to broadcast their best and most anticipated programs during this time, so obviously the Hub is delaying the season three opening so that more people will watch the show than normal during the sweeps, artificially inflating their ratings like every station does to make more money off of advertising.
Pumpkin Cake and Pound Cake were originally intended to be adopted, but the script was changedAlthough they have Vague Age, the Cakes always seemed to be significantly older than the Mane Cast, perhaps middle aged, so it seems slightly unlikely (by no means impossible, mind you) that they'd have kids. Word of God is also that they basically view Pinkie Pie as a daughter; now that she's an adult herself (physically, anyway), maybe they were looking into adoption since they never had kids of their own. It would explain A) why they are having kids later in life, B) why we never got any indication that Mrs. Cake was pregnant before she actually gave birth, C) why their new kids are not earth ponies like them (given a Hand Wave in the episode itself) and D) why the kids possess a much remarked upon resemblance to Pebbles and Bam-Bam (Bam-Bam was adopted himself). As for why it would have been changed, I can't imagine this show shying away from a positive message about adoption, but maybe someone felt uncomfortable with the concept of a pony orphanage and thus dead pony parents; note that Word of God is that Applejack's parents are deceased, but we've never had it mentioned in canon.
The show is developing a Myth Arc
Provided a fourth season happens, the opening credits animation will undergo heavy revisions
A multi-part "Magical Mystery Cure" was almost finished in production, but cut to a single episode at the last minuteThe highly rushed pacing of this episode has already contributed to rumors that the episode was meant to be multiple parts. However, if you listen closely at about halfway through the song "I've Got To Find A Way", you can hear a very amateur audio cut between the first and second part of the song note . This is not to say They Just Didn't Care; it resembles the type of edit that is made almost literally at the last minute to shave the running time off a final product.
Having made it to 65 episodes, the series will get a dose of Cerebus SyndromeHaving made it to syndication, as well as the success of the series overall, the writers will finally be able to take the series in a direction with more focus on the Mane 6's goals, have at least 1 Big Bad who will be a threat for more than 2 episodes a season as well as bring back other antagonists like Gilda, more attention to side characters, elaboration of stuff like Starswhirl the Bearded and the past of Celestia+Luna, etc. Also, while the series will still have episodes like Green Isn't Your Color alongside ones like The Crystal Empire, the series will go even farther than Season 3 did when it comes to continuity.
The next pony to receive a upgrade will be Rainbow Dash.Right now, they've been focusing a lot of Twilight Sparkle. Becoming an Alicorn Princess is quite a huge boost in power, but it wouldn't be fair to the other 5 if Twilight is the only one to get attention. Also, there's been a bunch of patents that have been bought that are related to Rainbow. "Rainbooms" and "Rainbow Rocks" specifically. Are these signs that something big is going to happen to Rainbow?
The show's writers are starting to get fatiguedHow else would you explain Equestria Girls?
You can expect to see Vinyl scratch and Derpy a lot more in season 4Because Equestria Girls was an experiment to see if the fandom would notice that the writers didn't care about it, and since it was well received with a good number of bronies who even pointed out "Fandom drops" like Derpy, they realized something. That something? That they can put Derpy and Vinyl Scratch in... and bronies won't even notice (Or care!) about the writing quality - just as long as they can put "Fandom drops" like Lyra, Derpy, or Vinyl in, it automatically appeals to bronies. Hasbro has realized they can put in fandom drops and bronies will gobble it up anyways.
Megan McCarthy being credited for Bats instead of Merriwether Williams was deliberate.Merriwether's other episodes weren't well received, so the producers worried that viewers would just nitpick this episode if they knew the true writer right away. To counter this, they credited Megan, a much more popular writer, at the start. Then, after everyone was done gushing about the episode, revealed the true writer when it was too late for the viewers to backpedal. They had Megan herself do the reveal so that the viewers couldn't claim the producers were just trolling them.
Possible Time Lords
One of the Characters is a Timelord.You know *ehem* Whoof. Ok, everypony with Hourglass Cute Mark is My Little Time Lord.
Doctor Whooves is the Doctor...... under the affects of a Chameleon arch. The arch can re-write the Doctor's DNA, supposedly into anything that will help him blend in, so this time it made him a pony with an American accent. However, like he carries a watch in his human form, he's got an hourglass cutie mark containing his real identity. The Earth pony is the 10th Doctor, and the Pegasus is the 11th after having to go under the radar to avoid the same enemy. He's got a younger voice as a Pegasus, and he's always open to trying new accessories like wings.
Doctor Whooves is the Doctor...... disguised by the perception filter. When watching Doctor Who, the audience travels along with the TARDIS, causing us to see the doctor in his true form. However, through timelord science, he is capable of taking on the appearance of any race with the help of his trusty perception filter. This is also true for his entire cast of companions.
The Donna of the Ponyverse universe is a Pegasus.All events from the usual Whoniverse happened in Ponyverse. Thus, the earth pony Doctor Whooves is 10, and the pegasus Whooves is Metacrisis/10.5/Handsy (Whoovsy?).
The Donna of the Ponyverse is Fluttershy.At one point in the episode "Dragonshy", Fluttershy got scared of her own shadow. Why? Because she subconsciously remembered Doctor Whooves encounter with the Vashta Nerada in the Library.
Every pony with a hourglass cutie mark is a Time LordSo far 4 ponies have been spotted with hourglass cutie marks each one is a time lord.
Pegasus Doctor Whoof is some kind half pegasus/pony time lord hybrid or clone.Yes, he is not next (or previous) regeneration. He's Whooves copy created from his DNA and DNA of some pegasus, he probably also become child and growing as normal pegasus (that explain his young voice).
Derpy is equivalent to both Rose and Donna for Doctor WhoofFandom sees her as a Doctor companion, and someone like Rose or Donna (ignoring Derpy Retard). And she is a pegasus (thanks to her we got Pegasus Doctor).
Dr. Whooves is a Time Lord...But only because Lauren Faust is a troper and noticed every show has a time lord WMG so she decided to provide a outlet to prevent "Twilight Sparkle is a Time Lord" WMGs.
Twilight Sparkle is a Time LordI see what you did there...
Doctor Whoof/Whooves is a television show in EquestriaAnd the Pony we keep seeing with the spikey mane and hourglass mark stars as The Doctor in the show.
Rarity is a Time Lord.She is the regeneration of Rarity from The Runaway Rainbow. Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie are Time Lord regenerations of their namesakes, too. All three are just as eccentric as the Doctor.
Everybody is a Timelord in Purgatory.Because its the only WMG left.
DISCORD is a Time LordWell, to be more specific... Discord is the Master to Doctor Whooves'... Doctor. Ties in nicely with the Doctor theory above that he battled Discord in the past. How? Discord is the Master, who picked up a few tips from Q and some others, and those tips he took are what changed him into the Mix-and-Match Critter that he is, voice included. He accepted this as the perfect guise to hide from the Doctor under, since he would not expect it.
The Princesses are Time Lords.The combined Elements of Harmony are the TARDIS. Both are well over one thousand years old, and Celestia looks quite different compared to her original apppearance from the story Twilight first reads in the pilot. The reason for this is by using the Elements all by herself, Celestia had taken on more power than her body could handle, forcing a Regeneration. Her influence on the timeline is much more indirect once Twilight and company come along, preferring to direct them through her various letters. Until then, she began all the legends of Nightmare Moon, purposely including the story that she would return in 1000 years. After that, all she had to do was wait. As for Princess Luna, she hasn't been around because she's been busy traveling through the 1000 years during which she was imprisoned.
The Doctor is responsible for Doctor Whooves and the other Time Lord ponies being in the show.The Doctor asked Lauren Faust or the animation team to sneak in his own pony designs, as part of his comical off-screen adventures to catch Amy and Rory's attention in The Impossible Astronaut, and a subtle way of implying he's stopped by present day/very near future times once or twice to check up on them in secret. This had the unintended effect of turning Rory into a brony much to Amy's confusion.
Equestrian 'Time Ponies' are the Ponyverse's counterpart species to the Time Lords we are familiar with, but not otherwise biologically or historically related to them.They're obviously native to the planet Gallopfrey, located right in the same universe as Equestria and possibly even orbiting a star visible in the latter's night sky. There is even a specific Time Pony whose (mis)adventures bear a more than passing resemblance to those familiar to us from assorted BBC documentaries...but he's not the same individual as the humanoid Doctor we know, and the two could conceivably run into each other without having to invoke Time Travel to do so.
The Elements of Harmony were made from the Eye of HarmonyThe names are a good hint.
Crossovers with other series
Equestria is Chell's dying dream.When she jumped into the pit at Wheatley's request, all she could think of as she died was his promise of ponies.
Fluttershy's Stare is a watered-down Penance Stare.Hence why anybody affected by her Stare suffers intense, crippling amounts of guilt. Maybe that's how Fluttershy's Moe factor works.
The Entire My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Universe exists within Nanoha's mind
Magic: The Gathering character alignments
Speaking of which, there could eventually be a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic-themed Magic: The Gathering setThink about it: Wizards of the Coast is owned by Hasbro. If Hasbro really wanted there to be an MLP/M:TG crossover, they would be fully capable of making it happen.
Someone will make a Dissidia: Final Fantasy crossover with this show.If only due to connecting the Elements of Harmony with Cosmos. That, and the show's and games this show is combined with tend to have a rather actiony feel to them.
Equestria will become involved in Time WarAll these Time Ponies in background are preparing for it.
Somewhere in Equestria, there lives a trio of unicorns, one of whom is named Charlie.At some point, Pinkie Pie will appear and sing a song for Charlie, before exploding for no apparent reason. (What if she explodes... and then explodes again?!)
The Parasprites are a Tyranid bioformThey breed explosively, eat everything in sight, and have no origin story. In addition, they are insectile, with four legs and a set of wings, maintaining the 'six legs each' theme of Tyranids. Clearly, Equestria has been seeded by the Tyranids, and the Parasprites are an adapted version of Rippers, meant to devour plant life to make the invasion swifter and to claim new biomass. And it will be a lot grimdark.
The Parasprites are TribblesThey're endearing, make cute noises, and reproduce at a ridiculous rate.
Sooner or later, there will be a South Park episode about the male Periphery Demographic of shows like My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic....because this is just the kind of weirdness South Park likes to deal with. (Also, it would be cool.)
One of the pony's will fall in battle in a later episode...But since Fluttershy got a Phoenix Pinion at the end of "A Bird in the Hoof" it won't be a series changing event, making the entire thing pointlessly traumatic.
- Twilight Sparkle / Unicorn Pony / Mage
- Rainbow Dash / Pegasus Pony / Rogue
- Pinkie Pie / Earth Pony / Bard
- Rarity / Unicorn Pony / Illusionist
- Fluttershy / Pegasus Pony / Ranger
In Pinkie's words, the party is ready!
Equestria is not located anywhere near Federation territory.If it were, the Federation would have tried to establish First Contact after the first Sonic Rainboom.
Equestria will be contacted by the Federation.They're just so far apart that it won't happen for a long time. At some point in the future, after Equestria has established its own space presence, they will be 'discovered' by the Federation. The Solar Empire and New Lunar Republic will be at war with the King Sombra's Crystal Empire when it happens. First Contact will be celebrated with a Boarding Party. "We are armed with Friendship and shielded by Love and Tolerance. In the name of Celestia, you will not threaten my little ponies again!" "Set phasers to Harmony."
Rainbow Dash's first Sonic Rainboom linked her to the Speed Force.That's why the event had such weird effects on Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle. It also explains the lightning bolt on Rainbow Dash's cutie mark.
Nightmare Moon is/was actually an avatar of the Lord of Apokolips.Or even better, when Darkseid foresaw his defeat in the Final Crisis, he left part of himself hidden away in another universe so he could return from even the ultimate defeat. Who is the Queen of Anti-Harmony, now and forever?
"A Dog and Pony Show" is Ruthless People (or even The Ransom of Red Chief) told by an Unreliable Narrator.
Ponyville is the Ponyverse's version of Hinamizawa, and/or Friendship is Magic is Higurashi no Naku Koro ni told by an Unreliable Narrator.That's why the Mane Cast all have tendencies to go crazy to varying degrees. LOOK! See for yourself! There he is, in the background! And here, capped by yours truly, encircled in white. And here, that's what he'd look like! It's coming together...
The small, but growing amount of Slender Mane fanart out there can be at least partially attributed to the Slender Man references on this page.I've counted at least two Slender Mane fanfics and quite a bit of fanart out there, and Slendy happens to be referenced at least twice on this page. My guess is that a few tropers were checking out the WMGs here, happened to notice the Slender Man links, and were struck with inspiration.
The whole My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic phenomenon is a real life version of the events of Paranoia Agent.I'm getting some Maromi parallels from the show: Utterly cute figures that everyone is seemingly latching on to, as if it's some form of escape from troubles... All it needs is a Lil'Slugger figure.
It's all a fanfiction by Osaka.While studying in America, Chiyo-Chan became a fan of My Little Pony and told all her friends about it during one of her visits to Japan. Inspired by her ramblings, Osaka decided to make a fanfiction and based the mane cast off herself and her friends: Twilight Sparkle is Chiyo and is made to have her smarts. Osaka decided to translate Chiyo's naiveté into being new in town rather than being younger than the rest of cast. Applejack is Yomi and is made to be the one is most down to earth. Also Osaka thinks Yomi would make a good cowboy for some reason. Rainbow Dash is based off Kagura and has her athletic ability and competitive streak turned up to eleven. Rarity is Tomo. Originally she was a hyperactive jerkass, but Tomo asked (in other words demanded) that Rarity would be changed into a sophisticated fashion designer loved by all. Osaka did so but decided to keep her narcissistic streak (probably as a jab towards Tomo's executive meddling. Flutter Shy is Sakaki. Originally she was a tough stoic who was even more athletic than Rainbow Dash, but was changed into a shy, moe animal lover (who was loved by animals back) at Sakaki's request. And of course, Osaka made herself into Pinkie Pie, who is basically Osaka on a 24 hour sugar rush.
Nella from The Nostalgia Chick will eventually guest starSomeone who works for the show will eventually see the episode with her Pony Melodrama and ask her to guest star. Possibly as a weird pony who plays with dolls and have similar (adept kid friendly version) Melodramas.
The 4 stars that freed Nightmare Moon where Robot Chicken's Apocalypse PonyI know this isn't the right place to put this but I dont know what is
The mane cast is a party of Exalted.This theory began with the canon Exalted rules having a set of powers that involve taking constant "dash" actions, one of which creates a multicolored shockwave behind you. Which would make Rainbow Dash an Infernal Malefactor of Adorjan. Which would make Fluttershy a Lunar, Applejack a Terrestrial (Earth aspect), Pinkie Pie a precognitive, reality-warping Siderial (claiming to represent the "Maiden of Cupcakes"), and Twilight Sparkle a Solar sorceress, Twilight caste, servant of the Unconquered Sun.
Derpy Hooves is an agent of the Ice King.She's been sent to scout out for princesses that the Ice King can kidnap and try to marry.
Tsukishima will appear in Pony form.And try to ruin one of the Mane Cast's life.
John DeLancie's voicing of Discord will lead to MLP/Star Trek crossover fics to rival the MLP/Doctor Who fics.With Discord and Q being one and the same. Expect Rainbow Dash to fight Worf.
This show will be the subject of a Cross Through between two other shows at some point.With one of the other shows being Transformers Prime.
If on the off chance Death appears in the seriesIt will be a pony grim reaper, named Binky.
The ponies are actually the characters from Lucky Star.
Twilight Sparkle is the alternate-universe version of Daenerys Targaryen.They both have violet eyes. They both are natural leaders. They both magically hatched dragon eggs, producing dragons who are, for all intents and purposes, their children.
Twilight Sparkle is a spark.Or a magical variant of one, at least. She had her breakthrough at her entrance exam, complete with its typical danger to bystanders. Since then she's been obsessed with studying magic, has a loyal minion in Spike, doesn't hesitate to use him (or her friends) as guinea pigs in her magical experiments, has a lab with unusual equipment in the basement, and she even improvises spells on the spot. Her magic is of such strength that Celestia has never seen it's like before, and she has the charisma to bring all of the most important ponies in Ponyville to her in her first day in town, and bosses the rest around during Winter Wrap-up. She even has a tendandcy to go to the madness place when things don't quite go as expected. The parasprite incident is pretty much straight-up sparkiness.
Twilight Sparkle is a planeswalker.She's a very skilled mage, able to use all types of magic, and a "spark" was "ignited" within her when something signifigant happened to her (in her case, an epiphany). She isn't wandering the planes either because she doesn't know she can or she doesn't want to leave her friends in Equestria.
Fluttershy's Stare is a Geass.Because we don't have anywhere near enough tie-ins on this page. She is the Ponyville equivalent of Lelouche Vi Brittania, albeit she has a much gentler nature. Exhibit A◊
Fluttershy: Fluttershy vi Equestria commands you... to LOVE ME!
Animals: YES! MY LADY!
Spike is somehow related to Spyro the Dragon.Ancient ancestor maybe? With the events of the spyro games taking place long after the ponies too, have been wiped out as the humans were before them?
Rainbow Dash is Sonic The HedgehogA little less experienced though, I'd imagine Rainbow Dash is what Sonic would be like at 12 years old, she has the 'tude' well and truly going, and a grossly obese ego, she LOVES speed and has loads of energy, despite this she can actually be quite lazy sometimes, she can be a bit of a jerk but can actually be really sweet, hopefully she won't develop the same tendency towards narm. There are some differences that make me think of her as a younger version of Sonic, though.
Playing off the above, Rainbow Dash will race Sonic for the title of "Fastest thing alive."Can you say, Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny?
The parasprites are decedents of the MetroidsBefore the entire Chozo race was destroyed by Space Pirates, one Chozo tribesmen escaped to a far away planet to hopefully keep the organism away from the clutches of Ridley and his crew. He offered the Metroid to the ruler of that world, Princess Celestia, who confined it to the Everfree forest. Thousands of years has caused it to adapt and change shape to match it's environment. The result is the seemingly harmless little Extreme Omnivore we know today.
Alternatively, Twilight is a cross between Patchouli and Marisa.Both of Twilight's dresses for the Grand Galloping Gala had astronomy motifs and Marisa's spell cards also have an astronomy motif. Both are able to copy other characters spells. And, in Touhou Soccer 2, Marisa's Mentor Mima has a variation of "Master Spark" called "Twlight Spark".
Patchouli Knowledge is a failed attempt by Twilight Sparkle to create a magical clone of herself.Twilight Sparkle comes across a magical duplication spell while reading a spellbook. Being Twilight Sparkle, she is always trying for more powerful magic, so she decides to test it out. Again, being the magical prodigy she is, she is able to creates a stable, permanent construct. But it turns out she's not quite experienced enough yet to perform such hypercomplex magic and thus her final creation is a magician entity not completely unlike herself in personality and magical power, but severely altered in terms of shape. This duplicate learns to travel between worlds and phases out of Equestria and into Gensokyo, where she has resided ever since. Why the idea? Two powerful magical girls with purple hair, both physically weak, who like books a lot. They even both have magical companions. Why this way around and not the other? Because Touhou characters tend to have a very vague origin which allows us fans to shape them as we please. Manipulative Bastard.
Discord is a member of the Q Continuum who was assigned the task of testing ponykind.Given that he seems to love to play games and used simple hand gestures to turn all six of the main cast into Earth Ponies, the self-described Embodiment of Chaos might be putting them through all the tests to prepare them for something far worse than a Draconequus with a penchant for head games.
Alternatively, Discord has some connection to Joshua, AKA the Composer.
Sparklelord is in fact the result of Twilight Sparkle accidentally fusing the mane 6 into one pony.
Discord is a Decepticon creation
My Little Pony is government propaganda from the pigs of Animal Farm.Horses are the working class on Animal Farm, and the ruling pigs need a way to keep them all in line, working hard and believing in a bright future while they're being exploited for their labour. Not all the animals believe in the Sugarcandy Mountain religion, so the pigs spread My Little Pony as a story to give the horses something to believe in. Applejack and Big Macintosh, in particular, are held up as paragons of the horse work ethic. Also, Celestia Is Always Right, just like Comrade Napoleon.
Rarity is a Spy and used her abilities last ep.She camped in the mud, used Eternal Reward when AJ stepped, then stole her team colours (brown) until she won the match.
Friendship rangers colors and zords
Equestria is the future of the land of Houyhnhnms from Gullivers Travels.
The ponies are the ancestors of the Minbari.They have a Worker Caste(the Earth Ponies), a Religious Caste (The Unicorns), and a Warrior Caste (The Pegasi). Okay, that last one is a bit forced, but work with me here!
Fluttershy is a Dragonborn.Long time ago a prophecy was told to the Dragons of Equestria, speaking of a being yet to be born who would have a dragon soul and the power to destroy the race of Dragons forever. Now, while some of the dragons went out hunting for this being others were a bit wiser and instead asked the Vanquishers of Discord, Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, for help. They came up with an arrangement; Luna and Celestia would use the Elements of Harmony to ensure that the Dragonborn would be one of their pony subjects, thus making it much easier to find and guide them. In return for mitigating the Dragonborn threat, the Princesses extracted a pact from almost all the dragons of Equestria that stopped the violent hunts and treasure raids that the draconian race had been inflicting upon ponykind. The last part of the deal was the gift of a dragon egg to the Royal Sisters, and egg that would be hatched by the rightful Heir of Princesses, an egg who would grow up to be the acknowledged Ruler of all Dragons in Equestria (Which turned out to be Twilight Sparkle and Spike.)The young dragon would be under the guardianship of the Heir and would learn the culture and ways of the more peaceful and organized ponies. With the Dragonborn backing the Royal Sisters and their Heir, and the Heir protecting and supporting the future Draconian Monarch, the goal was an eventual strengthening of the ties between the two races and the foundation of the first peaceable Dragon Kingdom.
Going from the above, the reason why Twilight and her friends were sent to shoo off the dragon was because…… dragons are notoriously proud, stubborn, and violent beings. In the past this meant that Celestia or Luna would have dealt with them personally for the safely of everyone involved, but now that the Dragonborn is all grown up and also the Element of Kindness, she can be sent to deal with the contrary dragons: Both to cut the Princesses some slack, and to remind the dragons of their arrangement with the Equestrian Royalty.
Fluttershy’s Stare allows her to ‘read’ the True Name of any one she focuses it on.And aside from the actual uses she unconsciously puts this to (see below), having your soul looked at is never a pleasant feeling, and when the one looking is both capable of warping the reality of you with words AND very, very angry at you…. Makes sense you’d be scared and intimidated by them.
Fluttershy has a slight Thu’um accent…..that she unconsciously reverts to when angry. It’s not an accent like what we would understand, not actually audible to most creatures and using normal everyday words, but when combined with Fluttershy’s Stare it is enough to invoke some of Fluttershy’s Dragon Soul (see above) and affect changes on the world. She is unknowingly forcing things to be the way she wills them to be.
Why no-pony has given Fluttershy any real training in Thu’um.If she knew what she was doing, Fluttershy would be absolutely devastated and would only learn enough to properly control and suppress her powers. After all, Thu’um is all about affecting things, whether they want to be affected or not. To Fluttershy it would be the worst form of bullying, and as we’ve seen with Discord, the one thing Fluttershy hates more than anything else is a bully. Plus she’s, well, shy and the Element of Kindness. Now, the Dragonborn wouldn’t be nearly as useful in her role of helping to maintain the Pony/Dragon Peace Pact if she didn’t occasionally express her powers, so Celestia is keeping Fluttershy, and most ponies, in the dark about the whole arrangement for now. Yes this series of Wild Mare Guesses was inspired by the Ponyborn picture.
Obligatory Neon Genesis Evangelion theory
Equestria was the true aftermath of Third Impact.Why? Because Shinji was a closet Brony. After Third Impact, Shinji and Asuka eventually tussled into the LCL fluid, where they saw what the other humans cooked up while Shinji and Asuka were gone. Rei was reincarnated into Princess Celestia, Asuka into Nightmare Moon/Luna or Rarity, and Shinji as...Spike. And thus, for thousands of years, humanity has been trapped in the world of Equestria. But one man stands between this Sugar Bowl and reality: Gendo, now reincarnated as Discord, will awaken humanity to the truth.
Equestria is part of the Star Wars galaxyDunno, it's just a big galaxy... In my crazy little mind, I've placed many of my favorite so-called universes inside the Star Wars galaxy - specifically, the unknown regions. That region is literally one of the best places to hide entire storylines - also good for hiding Earth, maybe? Not saying they'll interact with one another, but it's a pretty cool thought, in my opinion.
There will be a Crossover with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, G1 My Little Pony and My Little Pony Tales
Mjolnir exists in EquestriaWhy else would a pony have it for a cutie mark?◊
"The Elements of Harmony" is Equestria's equivalent of the Avatar Spirit.They're just executed slightly different. One Avatar gets to control all four physical elements (earth, air, water, fire), while the Elements of Harmony are more emotional, and can be distributed to different individuals. Whoever weilds the spirit has the duty to protect their land, and their 'activated' state looks pretty similar. See? Glowing◊ eyes◊.
Discord is The Pyro's true form.Think about it. Discord can shapeshift, and Pyro is easily the most "chaotic" class in the game (unintelligible speech, weaponizes fire, almost nothing is really known about them). Not to mention they both have a Psychopathic Manchild vibe to them. (Cotton-candy clouds anyone? And don't forget Pyro's beanie hat!)
Equestria is in fact located in Federation territory......it's just that instead of a planet, it's a runaway holodeck simulation whose inhabitants have become accidentally self-aware but not yet realized that there's a bigger reality beyond their own little world.
Shining Armor is a KeyThis would explain the fact that we haven't heard anything from Twilight before "A Canterlot Wedding" about her big brother who was her "only friend" before she came to Ponyville. Even if Queen Chrysalis's brainwashing explained why Shining Armor didn't care about Twi, it didn't explain why Twilight never mentioned him. It's clearly because he's not actually her brother, but someone has implanted false memories of their sibling relationship in both of their heads (and Cadence's) because Shining is, like Dawn, the Key.
All six of the mane cast are based on Zelda.Since there have been about 10 different Zeldas in the series, each of them have personalities that fit with our heroines: 1. Applejack is based on the Princess Zelda from the original game: They're both technically the oldest iteration of the character since both were around when both franchises were introduced. Also, this particular Zelda was the basis for Marin, who in turn was the basis for Malon, a farm girl much like Applejack. 2. Rainbow Dash is the Zelda from The Wind Waker, better known as Tetra. Both are best known as tomboys who won't easily go down without a fight. 3. Twilight Sparkle might be the Zelda from Ocarina Of Time. Both are associated with the color purple, very intelligent and practical, plus having highly magical abilities. 4. Rarity may be hard to place, but she could be the Zelda from Twilight Princess (rather then Twilight Sparkle). Rarity represents the spirit of generosity while this Zelda ends up sacrificing herself to save Midna. 5. Pinkie Pie could be the Zelda from The Minish Cap, in that both tended to be fun loving and have short attention spans. 6. Finally, Fluttershy is the Zelda from Skyward Sword. Both characters are described as fitting the Proper Lady mold and both came from the sky to and learn to love the world below.
Ponies are 40k Orks.Idea source.◊
The planet that contains Equestria is similar to the planets described in the short story Hostess by Isaac AsimovThe ponies are, similar to the residents of Hawkin's Planet, evolved from hooved creatures. They breathe cyanide gas just as all the others, though you won't get any indication from the series that they do. Long, long ago, the humans (or some similar species) visited the planet, causing the Inhibition Death to somehow spread to all members of the population except Celestia and Luna, who continued to age and grow (thus explaining why they're so much taller than everyone else). The parasite thrives on the planet much like it did on Earth, living and reproducing for over a thousand years, infecting everypony except for the Princesses, who are somehow immune.
Princess Luna was taken over by an EM BeingWord of God has been quoted many times saying that Luna was corrupted by an outside force, causing her to turn into Nightmare Moon. Word of God was also quoted again by saying that Luna would have to have been voluntarily corrupted. In the first Mega Man Star Force game, EM beings (That is, aliens made of electromagnetic radiation) begin taking over humans who are going through some sort of emotional stress, much like Luna did. In Starforce, some people are tricked into being taken over by EM bodies, so Luna could've been tricked in the same fashion.
Applejack's Mom and Dad are the rulers of the land of Sweet Apple AcresThey left to battle evil and now Applejack is the... boss.
Equestria takes place in the same multiverse as HomestuckLuna and Celestia were ordinary siblings living in gen 3.5 Equestria. Finding a copy of sburb, they started up a session, which destroyed their version of Equestria and threw them into the medium. The two of them ran a successful session, with both of them achieving God Tier in the process. This made them into the idealized version of their species, which would be an Alicorn. They then used frog breeding to create the gen 4 Equestria and descended to it as it's immortal Gods.
If the Mane Cast were Pokémon trainers...Just what sort of Pokémon would they have? 1. Twilight Sparkle seems like the type that is methodical, and prefers Pokémon with a high special attack:
Discord created SnowflameI just felt like putting this here. Discord certainly seems crazy enough to create Snowflame. The Nostalgia Critic's Son of the Mask review we found out that Satan's daughter loves Friendship is Magic. Her next appearance in the review of The Cat in the Hat shows her playing with a white Playful Pony sized Celestia toy. For a long time Hasbro only offered Celestia in pink, and then the white version was only in the larger size. If Evilina wanted a better toy she may have gotten her father to insist that the more show-accurate version be marketed, and that may be why it's finally available. feel free to add any more that might fit...
Fluttershy is a reformed Incubator. This was originally posted in Fluttershy's section of the Mane Six WMG, but the long and short is that Madoka wished that Kyubey would learn empathy and Celestia agreed to take in Kyubey (now Fluttershy) as an experimental process. The various personality querks that Kyubeyshy has developed from a combination of discovering that Good Feels Good, massive guilt from contracting all those Magical Girls and being so indifferent to their fates, and a loss of inherent meaning from becoming a Rouge Drone. Plotwise, maybe Walpurgisnacht shows up and Fluttershy contracts one of the other Mane Six out of desperation, and then later the Puella Magi come along and Fluttershy is terrified of meeting Homura again. Yes, this is from the fact that the two have the same seiyu.
Entering the My Little Pony universe alters your species.If you happen to be the dominant species on your planet, entering an AU version of said planet turns you into the dominant species on that. In Equestria's case, Earth's dominant species(human) becomes Equestria's dominant species(pony/horse/whatever). Beings resembling Earth's dominant species now resemble Equestria's dominant species. Anything in the same genus or related sub-species become a related species to the pony-for example, a Neanderthal would become a zebra. This also applies if a pony goes to our universe, so Pinkie Pie would be human there. This applies for other universes-going to a universe where the dominant species is the vehicle, or duck.
The reason why Derpy appeared as a filly in "Cutie Pox" was...She somehow managed to get Apotoxin'd, and reverted to a filly. However, she managed to get Zecora to make an antidote by the following episode and now has returned to normal. Possibly the reason why the antidote got made so fast was because Twilight used magic to determine the makeup of the drug in Derpy's system, allowing Zecora to make an appropriate antidote.
Silver Shill will soon become the wealthiest pony ever.Applejack will have to defend his first bit against Magica De Spell.
The series is All Just a Dream of an autistic Smarty PantsWhich has evolved into one of the greatest Self Insert Fics in history. Inspired by this pic.
This page will eventually have a ridiculously dark interpretation of the show's premise.There's some pointlessly depressing stuff here now, but I want to hear about how the show must actually be the Dying Dream of a terminally ill child rape victim. Get to it, people!
The Internet will soon have a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Dating Sim.And you will play it just to find out why people would ever play that.
Before season 2 is over, we'll have to add a MLP Villains WMG page
Discord actually represents the Brony communityHis actions in the show may be cruel, but if you look at some of the stuff that Bronies have produced, you can find that we've done things that are just as awful:
Everyone who contributes to this page needs to go write some My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fanfic!
"Krastos the Glue Maker" is (post your ideas):
People will make a somber/sad version of "Who's A Silly Pony"Perhaps sometime after "The Last Roundup" if the WMGs on that page are to be true.
Before this is over, a musical parody of My Little Pony will be made.Possibly low-budget, taking hilarious liberties with the characters, and featuring various musical numbers.
Discord was responsible for The Mysterious Mare Do WellIt makes perfect sense given the reaction to the episode.
Thousands of fanfiction versions of the Daring Doo series will now pop up.And some will no doubt be better than others.
The "Big Mac" issue was settled by Hasbro striking a cross-promotion deal with McDonald'sMy Little Pony toys are coming back to McDonald's in March, but this time they'll also use the cartoon's massive popularity and publicity to push their signature sandwich. The deal involves allowing the show to use the name "Big Mac" in exchange for using the character from the show to sell Big Mac sandwiches as a tie-in with their upcoming happy meal promotion.
iTunes will restore Derpy Hooves to her proper self eventually.this comic.
Hiromu freezing at Scootaloo will become a popular memeHiromu (Freezes at chickens) + Scootaloo (The mimetic chicken LITERALLY) = Pure Gold
Some of the ponies went crazy from the Hinamwizawa Syndrome.
The ponies with hourglass cutie marks aren't Time Lords...
The extended opening is a subtle reference to the bronies.The obvious meaning of the song is "Twilight thought friendship sucked but now it's awesome". However, look closely at the lyrics. It's possible to interpret as it being about bronies. The first verse is about how people become bronies - they think it's dumb, but when you actually look it turns out to be awesome, "and it's such a wonderful surprise". The bit with the Mane Cast puns are about the brony community, who defend each other (When danger makes me wanna hide/You'll Rainbow Dash to my side), are kind and caring to each other (Kindness is never in short supply/Once smitten, twice Fluttershy), honest about the show and how much they love it (For honesty no pony can deny/You are the Applejack of my eye), share their creative skills and creations related to the show (A heart that shines so beautiful/A Rarity to come by), and finally they love to laugh and joke (And you all make fun and laughter/As easy as Pinkie Pie!). The line "What a wonderful wonder friendship brings" is about how awesome the brony community can be. Finally, the "you're my very best friends" is about how bronies are united by friendship - you run into another brony, and you are bound to at least get a brohoof if not a new friend. The line "What a wonderful wonder friendship brings" is about how awesome the brony community can be. TLDR: The opening theme is about the creation of bronies and also about our community. Nuts but possible.
The show owes much of its popularity with its Periphery Demographic to Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series.The creators noticed how meme-savvy the Internet community is with their creation of numerous abridged series, with the veritable Mayflower of these being the renowned Yugioh Abridged. In an attempt to make the show more palatable as a family show, My Little Pony adopted the abridged style of pop culture references as a kind of Parental Bonus. When the Internet community discovered the show, noticed the memes, and turned the series itself into a Fountain of Memes (if only for the cheesiness of it all), the first generation of bronies were born.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a show for kids.Every WMG about the internal universe of Equestria is wrong, or at least very unlikely to be accurate. The show was not and is not made for bronies, and any attempts to get more out of it than officially stated are, simply put, wild mass guesses. As a rule of thumb, if it's too complex for a five-year-old girl to understand, it's probably just the fanbase's overactive imagination.
All the characters are inspired by the characters in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
This show is being used to TAKE OVER THE WORLDBefore they find me, you have to listen. The spread and popularity of this show shouldn't be possible for a normal show. The Friendship is Magic was built in Area 51 so the man can control us, addicting us all to the cuteness of Fluttershy and the silliness of Pinkie Pie, a dependence on the dolls, and force us to make fan videos at the drop of a hat. WE ARE BEING ENSLAVED PEOPLE! We must act quick before it's too late, when we get Season 3, we must all.. Oh god, THEY ARE HERE! QUICK, SPREAD THE TRUTH BEFOR- ... ... ... He... ahem, I take all those statements back. There is no conspiracy, no involvement by the CIA, FBI, SCP, or other government organizations that do and don't exist to control your mind and make you into sheep who will baw on command. Excuse me, this carbon based troper who calls himself a "human," I need to go jump in front of a truck for a very good reason.
Luna Eclipsed is set a few months after the Mare in the Moon and the Elements of Harmony (aka Friendship is Magic, part 1 & 2)The Elements of Harmony happened during the Summer Solstice. Judging by the crops, the length of the night, and several other factors (not to mention the fact that it's a clear parallel of Halloween), Nightmare Night is in the Fall. I posit that they happened in the same year—the release of Discord hadn't happened yet, nor had the Gala, nor anything in S2 or a lot of S1. Luna had only been awake for three or four months, explaining her accent, vocabulary and demeanor.
Someone in Major League Baseball will use a song from MLP:FIM as a Leitmotif
There will eventually be pony-themed Gak.A bunch of other stuff has already been pony-ifed, and with Gak now becoming a meme...
Gak is related to the Smooze.It appears to be spreading and taking things over.
"Putting your Hoof Down" was intended as An Aesop with the primary audience being some of the more mentally unhinged bronies.Iron Will represents some of the bronies who really really love the show, and are trying to share it with their friends. Fluttershy becoming more assertive is one of these friends who tries MLP out but doesn't like it. Iron Will trying to collect payment is the brony pushing harder and harder, unable to understand that "no" means "no". The "No" means "No" Aesop was specifically targeted at those bronies. Trust me...you know these types. And well, given how vocal the MLP Fanbase is...it was targeted at them. Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped.
The series as a whole isn't current events.It's really the epic backstory of beloved Equestrian Princess Twilight.
Seasons 1-3 all take place in the same yearMultiple mentions of the Summer Sun Celebration in the 4th Season Premiere heavily implies that this is the first celebration after Luna's return, because if multiple SSCs have passed, most of those mentions would lose their weight, especially Celestia's own mention, when she stated it to formerly be a reminder of her greatest failure.
Alternate to the above: seasons 1-3 take place over two years.The Summer Sun celebration was canceled on account of Discord, and Luna had been still too weak to participate anyway.
Equestria is actually part of a simulated reality deep within the internet.They use Bits as currency and from the side they look like BI Tcoins. Also anything can happen or exist on the internet. Also there's this: 
Equestria is the afterlife for horses.Whenever any horse is "put out to pasture" or killed by natural causes in the human world, they get sent to live out their days in the paradise called Equestria. That's why you never hear about anyone dying and you don't see any cemeteries. There I said it.
It's About Time was made for another reason.Even though the moral was not to stress about the future, keep in mind that the episode was released in 2012, and it could be a Take That to the 2012 apocalypse. In short, the episode was secretly saying not to believe in the apocalypse.
The Li'l Miss Rarity Tumblrpasta blog's main arc—that is, before the revelation—takes place in an alternate Bad End to "Whom the Sweetie Belle Tolls".If Luna didn't manage to reform Sweetie Belle and Rarity ended up disgraced before Sapphire Shores and became the recluse we saw in Sweetie Belle's nightmare, the pressure from her friends and the community to start making dresses again would force her to at least try to make one more dress. It is at this point when she is scratched by Opal and discovers her sadomasochistic side, and sometime after she makes Opal's skin into her Pinkamina doll she decides to start making dresses again. But, being that she threw out most of her material before and had only bought enough for the one that was ruined when Opal scratched her, she needed to get more... By this point, Sweetie Belle had felt sorry for what she had put her sister through and confessed to Sapphire Shores that she was the reason the headdress fell apart. When Sapphire finally found the time to pay Rarity a visit and apologize to offer her another opportunity, she had no idea that she would be helping with some of Rarity's new dresses in a very big way... That was the last anypony ever saw of Sapphire Shores... Mommy's still pretty...
The Princesses represent The Four LovesPretty self-explanatory, and provided that there are no more Alicorn Princesses, each of the Princesses corresponds to on of the Four Loves
