* Lyra and Bonbon are the OneTruePairing of the fandom. No matter what, they're always a couple. Occasionally they'll have a child together, and occasionally Colgate will get in the way of their romance (though she's commonly shipped with Berry Punch), but typically they're a couple. The show presented Lyra and Bonbon as ''very'' close but [[HideYourLesbians didn't say they were officially a couple]]... [[spoiler: until Season 9, though given that reveal it's no stretch to assume they've been a couple since ''Season 5'']].

* Celestia having a pink mane as a filly is near omnipresent {{fanon}}, due to the intro depicting her with pink hair. Originally fans also thought she had pink hair (and that the change probably occurred due to using the Elements of Harmony) when she banished Nightmare Moon, however the series debunked that fanon.

Originally fans also thought she had pink hair (and that the change probably occurred due to using the Elements of Harmony) when she banished Nightmare Moon, however the series debunked that fanon. Celestia is only shown having had a multicolored mane.



* Many fans believe that Celestia and Luna were not born alicorn. This is supported by Cadance [[spoiler:and Twilight]] having been transformed into alicorn, but it's unknown if the sisters are "natural" alicorn or not. ''Literature/TheJournalOfTheTwoSisters'' implies they were but ''Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E1TheCrystallingPart1'' implies otherwise. If they were born alicorn, this is usually the reason given for why they are still young looking and over 1000 years old, while "ascended" alicorn seem to age normally and don't have ethereal manes. If not, when it comes to what species they were originally, fans usually opt for both being unicorn. The second most popular choice is earth pony, with pegasus mainly only being an option if the other isn't a pegasus (like the Cake twins or if they're half-siblings).

* Ethereal manes are exclusive to natural born alicorns. This was used as proof of Celestia and Luna being born alicorn, This was later jossed, with instead ethereal manes being related to a unicorn or alicorn's magical abilities.



* For fan who believe all alicorns are essentially immortal (or at least are ''incredibly'' long lived), it's often assumed that Cadance and Twilight will grow taller and gain flowing manes within a few millenia. Either they're not powerful enough yet or they are too young. A comic, later adapted into an episode, supports the theory that their manes are related to their power level by showing very powerful mythical unicorns with ethereal manes.

** Bonbon will occasionally be a JerkAss due to the way she acts in her few speaking roles.
** Every time Bonbon had a line she spoke with a different voice. This has led to the believe that Bonbon is a voice actress or (after the Season 2 finale aired) a Changeling.

* Sunset Shimmer's human counterpart is either presumed dead or she simply goes to another school. She's often written as Celestia's daughter.
* Fan-works often give Sunset Shimmer a history of SelfHarm, suicidal ideation, and/or drug use. Sometimes this is triggered by the Anon-a-Miss incident, sometimes it goes along with her DarkAndTroubledPast.

** According to the fans, Celestia really, really, ''really'', likes cake. This stems almost entirely from a brief gag in "Ponyville Confidential" when the CMC publish a photo of Celestia messily eating a slice of cake. It doesn't help that the very next episode shows Celestia as a judge in a dessert competition, gazing longingly at a cake. Naturally, "Cakelestia" became extremely popular, even though she's not shown eating cake outside of those two episodes. Less common, Celestia liking banana a lot pops up due to a popular fan animation.

Added DiffLines:

* Any pony with an hourglass cutie mark is actually a [[Series/DoctorWho Time Lord]]. It all started with Dr. Hooves[=/=]Time Turner, a background pony with a hourglass cutie mark and a suspicious resemblance to the Tenth Doctor, but has since spread to include other background ponies with the same cutie mark. This theory is well on its way to [[AscendedFanon ascension]], and Time Turner's voice actor has confirmed that he played his character as being the Doctor as a pony.

* Due to their sun-themed names and cutie marks as well as having a very similar color scheme, lots of fans like to think of Sunburst and Sunset Shimmer as siblings. Sunset entering the human world is often used to explain Stellar Flare's MyBelovedSmother tendencies towards Sunburst. Furthermore, due to being one of Celestia's students, Sunset as the source of Sunburst's insecurity is also a common idea.


* Due to the fact there are almost no unicorns and pegasus in the toys, and the fact that pegasus live on an island, Earth ponies live in Ponyville, and unicorns live in Unicornia, it's presumed the races are largely segregated.
