I removed this:

  • * My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic: During the episode "The Best Night Ever", Prince Blueblood's use of "one" when he expects Rarity to put her cloak over a puddle:
    Prince Blueblood: Miss Rarity! Stop!
    Rarity: Oh. Prince Blueblood! How chivalrous.
    Prince Blueblood: One would hate to slip.
    Rarity: Yes. "One" certainly would.
    Prince Blueblood: One's cloak should take care of the problem.
    • And again when he expects her to get the door for him.

That's simple subversion, not ambiguity. The show is quite clear who "one" refers to.
