Added DiffLines:

* SingingInTheShower: During the Great Elevator Saga, when the Mane Six's elevator opens up on floor 5, they find Tirek singing in the shower (specifically, Pat Benetar's "Shadows of the Night"). He freaks out when he realizes he's being watched.


** [[LordOfTheRings Darth Vader cannot simply walk into Equestria.]] So every time he shows up in a Fused Loop, he makes sure to make a BigEntrance.

Added DiffLines:

* MarriedToTheJob: Literally in 108.19 - Cadance, who was both Unawake and Best Mare, has photos of Shining Armor in a tuxedo and his guard armor in a wedding dress. And he ''still'' didn't tell Twilight he was getting married.

Added DiffLines:

* ImmortalityField: Peppermint Pylons, first featured in ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/98568/117/mlp-time-loops/mlp-loops-111 Story 111.2]]'':
--> I got one of Pinkie's video game pylons active. So even if [Death] gets me, I'll just happily respawn as long as the pylon remains on."

Added DiffLines:

* BadassFingersnap: ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/98568/128/mlp-time-loops/mlp-loops-122 Story 122.11]]'' references it:
--> Chaos Legion had [an insignia of] a hand poised to snap. This was universally agreed to be a bad sign.

Added DiffLines:

* NonProtagonistResolver: Loop 193.7 is set during ''Legend of Everfree'', and Sunset is preparing to act when the human ''Bulk Biceps'', a non-Looper, suddenly steps up and talks Gloriosa/Gaia Everfree down, pointing out that if she keeps them there, she's keeping them away from their families. Sunset's surprised by this, but happy with the results.


* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: In this case, Alicorn Princesses, and one prince. In addition to the four canon alicorns, there's the rest of the Mane Six, Shining Armor, Trixie, Nyx, [[spoiler:all three Cutie Mark Crusaders plus Diamond Tiara, Berry Punch, Mayor Mare/Ivory Scroll, Zecora, Ditzy/Derpy/Bright Eyes, Lyra, Vinyl, Sunset Shimmer... and one Princess Macintosh loop. Plus Silver Spoon and Gilda, who ascend into a Draconequus and a Higher Griffin, respectively. At this point, of pony Loopers, only Mac and Cheerilee have yet to formally ascend to alicornhood, and in Mac's case this is deliberate on his part.]]

* ImprovisedWeapon: In one Loop, a robotic Tirek shows up at the Golden Oak Library and demands Twilight's magic. She grabs an object off a nearby table... and kicks his aft with a sandwich. (Specifically, a six-foot party sub left over from a celebration that Pinkie had thrown the day before.)



** Scootaloo's family varied a great deal as well. Eventually, it settled down so that her paternal aunt Holiday and Holiday's marefriend Lofty became her recurring caretakers due to her parents being preoccupied by work.



* RelatedInTheAdaptation: This can happen a lot due to variant Loops (such as one where Mrs. Cake was a distant relative of the Pie family). Scootaloo in particular has been related (by blood or adoption) to every single one of her fellow Equestrian Loopers, and a few Loopers from other Branches.

There are also recurring Loops where Photo Finish is Rainbow Dash's mother, though these seem to have reduced considerably since the "Parental Glidance" expansion.


Added DiffLines:

* WhenTreesAttack: In one Loop, the Golden Oak Library came to life and kicked Tirek's plot back to Tartarus. Rainbow Dash got pictures, which she later shares with Twilight.

Added DiffLines:

** Since 161.7, there's been a minor gag associating Cadance with pizza.

Added DiffLines:

* CostumeCopycat: 203.15 features an offscreen variant - after Princess Luna became Nightmare Moonpie and banished herself to the moon so she could practice her baking in peace (since Celestia kept swiping the food before Luna could taste it herself), Celestia appointed alicorn versions of Soarin' (or "Soaralicious" - Equestria had a disco/pie theme that Loop) and Spitfire ("Pie Spitter") as leaders of Equestria and moved to the sun, intending to wait there until her sister had returned. Pie Spitter later adapted the Nightmare Moonpie identity out of a desire for power (and, apparently, a dislike of pies) and was banished to the moon, setting her up as a villain for the future. This results in some minor confusion when Soaralicious is expecting his sister's return and sends Twilight "Sparkle Child" Sparkle to Ponyville in preparation, only for the ''original'' Nightmare Moonpie to return instead. Fortunately, she's rather friendly, sharing her food with everypony while declaring that "THE MOONPIES SHALL LAST FOREVER!" and, once Soaralicious shows up, explaining the differences between she and Pie Spitter.


* BillBillJunkBill: Used in Loop 202.18 by Vinyl Scratch when going through her sunglasses collection (and eventually finding what she's looking for: [[Webcomic/SchlockMercenary Kevyn Andrayson]]'s sunglasses):
-->"My normal sunglasses, [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Renji Abarai]]'s style of sunglasses, yellow sunglasses from [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alucard]], yellow sunglasses from [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Vash]], triangle shades, [[ComicBook/XMen Cyclops-style visor]]... when did I pick that up? Ooh, authentic [[Film/TheBluesBrothers Blues Brothers]] sunglasses!" ... "[[Series/CSIMiami Horatio Caine]]'s sunglasses that he gave me... nope... nope... not that one... drat, it doesn't look like they're in this chest."

Added DiffLines:

* ArrangedMarriage:
** Were a thing in 177.21. Applejack was with someone she thought might have been a pony version of Thorin Oakenshield (but didn't know whether he was Awake or not), Fluttershy was with Caramel, Rainbow Dash with her old bully Hoops, Octavia with Prince Blueblood, and Twilight was with Flash Sentry.
** In Loop 202.12, Filthy Rich's marriage to Spoiled Milk was an arranged one, but Filthy wound up having a one-night stand with Applejack, whom he admitted was the one he really wanted to marry, after being told. [[spoiler:She got pregnant, and Diamond Tiara - who was subsequently raised by Filthy and Spoiled, though with the promise that if she found out about her birth mom and wanted to rejoin her, she could - was the result.]]

* PoorCommunicationKills: During a Fused Loop with ''Anime/KillLaKill''. If Sunset would have only Pinged to see anyone Awake instead of assuming Ryuko had Sakura Syndrome, she wouldn't have been mistaken for an assassin, fight the Honnouji Academy Elite along with Mako and face-off against both Ryuko and Satsuki.

Added DiffLines:

* AcidRefluxNightmare:
** Variant in 136.6, where it's not food that causes it - instead, Twilight remembers why it's a bad idea to watch ''Film/TheGodfather'' right before bed.
** In 143.5, Rainbow Dash ''thinks'' she's in one of these (it's really a prank by Spike) when she sees a werewolfified reflection of herself in the mirror, and promptly swears off eating Manexican food before bed.


* ADogAteMyHomework: Loop 201.14 has an unAwake Apple Bloom tearfully and truthfully inform her teacher that (an also unAwake) "Discord ate my homework, Miss Cheerilee." Cheerilee, full of righteous anger on behalf of her student, proceeds to terrify him into redoing the homework for her (with Fluttershy supervising), and then some, as punishment.



** Scotaloo got her vengence, when she attempted to use a "Nobody dies" device Pinkie Pie had invented, rendering things in cartoon physics. Due to the event? She shut off death for 24 hours in a ''Final Destination'' loop. She responds by taunting Cthulhu.
