YMMV: Pony Fantasy VI
  • Crack Pairing: In the original game, Locke and Celes had a budding romance. This makes interactions between their replacements, Applebloom and Trixie, somewhat awkward to see. Though their relationship certainly isn't romantic.
  • Crazy Awesome: There's a reason Pinkie stands in for Gau. Being able to copy nearly any monster attack in the game simply through her randomness is perfectly in-character for her.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Discord fills the role of Kefka in this game. Cut to the Japanese premiere of "Return of Harmony", and we have Shigeru Chiba, the Japanese voice of Kefka in Dissidia: Final Fantasy, playing the role of Discord.
  • Tear Jerker: Applebloom's Flashback to her biggest regret hits harder when her friend Vinyl Scratch says that even though she's suffering from amnesia, anypony who thinks putting her In Harm's Way equals Friendship isn't somepony she wants to know.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: Lauren Faust's pony alter-ego stands in for Gogo. True enough, they needed somepony who could Mimic racial talents like Soar or Magic, but it's still surprising.
    • A few YouTube commenters have remarked that they think Spike and Rarity would have been better in the roles of Locke and Celes instead of Applebloom and Trixie for obvious reasons.
    • For that matter, some fans claim Shining Armor should have been a natural choice for General Leo instead of Zecora. That said, Zecora certainly gives more memorable dialogue.
    • It's a bit odd that the person who plans to rule an Empire of Magic is Gilda the Griffon, since Griffons are not known to use magic in any (pony-based) works.
