* One for the Mane Six and Equestria in general: the Storm King's laid waste to the south of the planet Equestria is on and conquered them. The previous villains seemed, while potentially world threatening, never seemed to go beyond its borders or the borders of the country they originated in (in Sombra's case). The ponies beat him in the end.

* The title makes such an impressive impression for both fans and non-fans of the show. Classical music builds up as a single sparkle follows the "Y" of the 3D logo close up and after the climax, the logo is finally revealed in all of its glittery glory and the main theme tune is played. What a way to start a movie. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQ8FDruP4UQ See it for yourself!]]

* After Twilight and Storm King get pulled into the sky by the tornado, it looked like the end. Then the clouds part as the sun's rays break through, and in that moment, Twilight floats down with staff in hoof as if she were an angel descending from Heaven. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming since the Mane Six first thought they had lost their friend, the Princess of Friendship and Element of Magic, forever after she performed a HeroicSacrifice to take out the Storm King with her.

* Despite bringing in {{Celebrity Voice Actor}}s, the cast still includes Creator/TaraStrong, Creator/CathyWeseluck, [[Music/HeyOcean Ashleigh Ball]], Creator/AndreaLibman, Creator/TabithaStGermain, and Creator/NicoleOliver as their respective characters from the show (similar to how ''WesternAnimation/RatchetAndClank2016'' still managed to get Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor, Creator/DavidKaye, Creator/JimWard, and Armin Shimerman as their respective characters from the games despite its own cast of {{Celebrity Voice Actor}}s).

*** Adding to that, the movie actually invoking BothSidesHaveAPoint. In spite of her choices, Twilight was equally justified firing back at Pinkie after all the crap she herself caused beforehand. They both apologise during the climax, accepting there's a time for the idealistic approach and serious thinking, which is pretty rounded for a kids movie.

* Think the Sonic Rainboom was awesome? Rainbow Dash pulls off a ''[[UpToEleven Double]]'' [[UpToEleven Rainboom]] in a display of the film's [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome incredible animation effects]]. Also doubles as a nice FandomNod to the ''WebAnimation/DoubleRainboom'' animation.

* The AwesomeMusic deserves a mention, especially considering that it's written by the same composer/songwriter as in the TV show (Daniel Ingram) and finally has the budget to do so with a full orchestra.

** On that note, Pinkie Pie isnít afraid to call Twilight out on her actions. Itís one of the few times anyone actually stands up to her.

** Bonus: [[spoiler: Tempest seeing that moment of self-sacrifice first-hoof might have been what inspired her to do the same to protect the Mane 6 against the Storm King's own petrification grenade, making that three ways--initial shielding, buying time, and inspiring a repeat--that Derpy saved Equestria with that action.]]

* During her conversation with the Storm King (via "Spell phone"), there's the visual detail of the Storm King being reflected in Tempest's eyes whilst he threatens her with the consequences if she fails. It [[StealthPun reflects]] how dedicated she is to serving him, even though there are stakes involved.

* Also an Awesome Spike moment, if he hadn't escaped one of the Storm King's minions who took Twilight, and raced back to tell the Mane 5, it would've been all over. Once more, in his own small way, Spike can save the day.
