  • Accidental Aesop: From "SHED.MOV": Bullying is bad.
  • Ass Pull: More of a nose pull, but Spike apparently had the elements of harmony stuck up his nose the whole time for no reason. Played for Laughs, of course.
  • Awesome Music: "Just sit back, and relax...WHILE I EAT YOUR BRAINS!!" Creepy or not, there's no denying that "SHED.MOV" has a cool song.
  • Base Breaker:
    • "SHED.MOV". Some got a good laugh, but others found it more disturbing than funny.
    • Earlier, "DRESS.MOV". Many were disgusted by the way it went even further over the top than "APPLE.MOV"; others liked it for the exact same reason. Some considered it racist, while others realized that its attack was on Rarity, and not on the Mexicans.
    • More recently, the revelation of Appelox, the Holy Titan of Honesty has elicited mixed responses from followers of the Ask Jappleack Tumblr. While some fans are satisfied with his portrayal, others have found him to be quite ... silly.
    • The ending to "SWAG.MOV", specifically when Jappleack returns after saying all of reality from Appelox and everyone stating they don't care, and Spike telling her he is going to kill her. A lot of fans were not happy about this scene, finding rather unfunny, even for this series.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: One appears in every episode:
    • Applejack's...trip in "APPLE.MOV".
    • Twilight masturbating in "DRESS.MOV".
    • Whatever it was Spike, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie were doing at the beginning of "SHED.MOV".
    • Spike humping on Twilight at the beginning of "MAGIC.MOV".
    • Discord humping Wolflor in "PARTY.MOV".
  • Crazy Awesome: Jappleack has officially reached this status. The fate of the universe relies on how wide she can open her mouth
  • Crosses the Line Twice: In every video.
  • Designated Hero: The Mane cast are all a bunch of assholes, but they're the only ones who can save Ponyville.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: How the group treats Jappleack when she returns in "SWAG.MOV", especially Spike, who overreacts and threatens to kill her. Keep in mind that Jappleack was in a coma and had saved the entire universe before she returned, only to be told that nobody cares. There's Comedic Sociopathy, and then there's just being an outright ass.
    • Thankfully, the epilogue on the blog reveals if nothing else, Apple Bloom cares and respects her for what she's done.
  • Ear Worm: "Gunna Eat'cha Brains"
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Paco.
    • The R-Dash 5000 has developed a huge following, despite appearing for mere seconds in each of its appearances, due to its catchphrase. Check it out.
  • Fridge Brilliance: What was Apple Bloom's cutie mark right before Discord squished her? A daisy. As in Pushing Daisies.
  • Fridge Horror: So Fluttershy, why do you have a human skull in your shed again?
  • Hell Is That Noise: The xylophone sound of the dead animal's ribs in "SHED.MOV".
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • In "PARTY.MOV", one of the ponies photographing Pinkie Pie about a minute in looks a lot like this OC, but with a different cutie mark and as a Pegasus. He noticed.
      • Also from "PARTY.MOV", in one scene Pinkie sprouts a human finger for the sole purpose of tapping it on a bench. In the Friendship is Magic episode "Too Many Pinkie Pies", one of the Pinkie clones grows her own set of fingers by blowing into her hoof.
    • Fluttershy's muzzle in "SHED.MOV" looks less like Hannibal Lecter and more like Bane's mask.
    • Jappleack's favorite book was revealed as The Very Hungry Caterpillar back in the blog's Q&A format. Fast forward to the reveal of Appleox, who's not only hungry for planar dimensions, but resembles a giant caterpillar...
    • Pinkie Pie can grow fingers out of her hooves apparently.
    • The battle between Rainbow Dash and Discord in SWAG.MOV is remarkably similar to the one between Twilight and Tirek in Twilight's Kingdom.
  • It Was His Sled: Derpy Hooves being a toaster cozy is promoted on T-shirts.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • This face that Spike made in "SHED.MOV". interpreted by some as Spike's trollface.
    • "Stay out of my shed" and all of its variations is rapidly becoming one as well.
    • "Swag"
  • Moe: Fluttershy, by the standards of this series, slips into this a bit when she says "Don't tease me, I'm shy!"
    • The photographs of Pinkie Pie as a baby, a little filly and a college/highschool(?) graduate.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Discord crosses it when he kills Apple Bloom. Then, after the time reset, he recrosses it when he tortures Rainbow Dash, by ripping off her wings.
  • Narm: When we finally got to see the unseen Eldritch Abomination: The Titan of Honesty... It turned out to be a bit more silly than some fans had bargained for.
  • Never Live It Down: "SHED.MOV" might become to Fluttershy what Cupcakes is to Pinkie Pie.
  • So Okay, It's Average: Arguably, "SPIKE.MOV", what with the video only lasting for almost one and a half minutes with Spike trying to do a trick at some tiny skateboard (apparently, Tech Deck) with his fingers while Paco watches and with a twist ending. Considering it was an April Fools' Day video, it might have been justified.
  • Ron the Death Eater: The entire main cast gets this in spades.
  • Squick:
    • Twilight's "clopping" in "DRESS.MOV".
    • When one of Rarity's workers complains about being thirsty, she hawks a loogie right into the glass.
    • "Yo, that's my period, ya dumb bitch! That's my period!"
    • Rainbow's "wingboner" in "SHED.MOV".
    • Spike pulling the worm in Rainbow's face and eating it in "MAGIC.MOV". Lampshaded by the look Twilight gave him when he did.
    • "I think I'm having my period."
      • Combined with lots of puking.
  • Weird Al Effect: More people are familiar with Fluttershy's song, "Gunna Eat'cha Brains", than the Fat Albert theme which it's a parody of.
  • What an Idiot: Discord's been attacking Ponyville since "DRESS.MOV". What does Apple Bloom do during this? Stare at her rump as her cutie mark appears during the carnage, causing her to get promptly squished by Discord. In-character, when you think about it, but still a case of this trope.
    • Also, Rainbow Dash. Pinkie Pie and Spike bolt the instant Fluttershy bursts in with a chainsaw, but she just stands there. And dies.
  • The Woobie: Applebloom in the ASK JAPPLEACK blog.
