* ClicheStorm: In "The Longest Wedding", DJ 3-Pones hands out well-worn truisms ("''With the power of friendship, anything is possible!''") like they're cheap cigars.
* EarWorm:
** Zorba Style from episode 26.
** Chrysalis' transformation music from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyFzF6veI20 The Longest Wedding]]. It's actually the Italian dub's opening theme.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynA9O-ozbUY The Season 3 trailer.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: [[LargeHam The Orb]] has become really popular among the viewers. "The Longest Recap" even lampshades it, with Sweetie Belle wondering how the heck the Orb became so popular.
* FandomRivalry:
** Judging from the Youtube comments, a vocal segment of ''UFP'' fans really dislike ''FriendshipIsWitchcraft'', much more than Wacarb does.
** Thankfully, others agree [[TakeAThirdOption they are both good in their own way]].
* HilariousInHindsight:
** "The Canon Has Misfired", released August 2012: Twilight asks Rarity for a stealth mission outfit, and Rarity volunteers a gimp suit. [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E5MagicDuel "Magic Duel"]], broadcast November 2012: Rarity's "dangerous mission outfit" for Fluttershy is a black, hooded suit with gratuitous bunny ears and no holes for Fluttershy's wings. ''Coincidence?'' ...Probably.
** Episode 2, "Fillen' Dem Plot Holes, Bro!" includes one caption: "I miss the days when plot hole meant something different" (i.e. the days before [[Memes/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic "plot" was slang for "pony butt"]]). Much later, "The Longest Wedding" featured the exchange:
-->'''Cadance:''' {{The power of love}} will fill all plot holes!\\
'''Shining Armor:''' Yes, Cadance! Fill my plot hole with love!
** When "Hippocritic Oafs" introduces Blue Twilight, Wacarb jokes that he's got 2/5ths of a set of Twilight Rangers. Then canon completed the set by introducing Sunset Shimmer, Starlight Glimmer, and Moondancer--aka Orange Twilight, Pink Twilight, and Yellow Twilight.
** In "Faith to Faith", Pinkie "makes Creator/LittleKuriboh proud" by quoting [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} "Shut up and take my money!"]]. While everyone else finds it hilarious, Applejack thinks it's a comedic copout. The next two episodes ("Reading to Rainbow" and "Pirate Shipping") both featured [[TheStinger stingers]] involving scenes redubbed with ''Futurama'' audio.
** "The Cheesen One" (released September 2013) suggests that cheese is important to Rainbow Dash, since it figured prominently in her mother's FinalSpeech: "Life is like a wheel of cheese... and you have to eat the cheese before it gets moldy." In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E12PinkiePride "Pinkie Pride"]] (released February 2014), a giant cheese wheel features in Rainbow Dash's birth-iversary celebration.
** "Stranger Than Fan Fiction" introduced "Yellow Twilight" who was represented by footage of a yellow pony toy, and who wrote a SelfInsertFic where Purple Twilight has a crush on her. Then in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E12AmendingFences "Amending Fences"]] Moondancer, (an unseen pony mentioned in episode one) was finally revealed to look just like Twilight, but with a yellow coat. And Moondancer's behavior was surprisingly consistent with the interpretation that she used to have a crush on Twilight.
** In "More Weeds", Rainbow Dash [[AchievementsInIgnorance survives a fatal shooting]] because she's literally too dumb to die. Twilight Sparkle is particularly angry about Dash doing this. But in "Rainbow V Daring", Twilight also winds up being too dumb to die, though in a more mundane fashion: she tries to commit suicide and completely bungles it.
* MostAnnoyingSound: In Rainbow V Daring, Rainbow Dash and Daring Do get in an argument where both characters utter random phonemes at each other until Twilight gets fed up and stops them both.
-->'''Caption:''' DEAR LORD MAKE IT STOP!
* TheWoobie: Poor Soarin.
** Also, pretty much the entire main cast
