* ContinuityNod: Aside from referencing the events of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E9SliceOfLife "Slice of Life"]], it also involves [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 changelings]] and takes place in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E21OverABarrel Appleoosa]].
** Also, during Lyra's initial introduction to S.M.I.L.E's operations, it's claimed that [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E16ItAintEasyBeingBreezies Breezies]], [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E25TwilightsKingdomPart1 Tirek]] and even [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E1MareInTheMoon the Return of Nightmare Moon]] were all S.M.I.L.E cover-ups -- although WordOfGod is apparently that the agent was joking when he claimed these three were S.M.I.L.E's responsibility.
* FunWithAcronyms: Sweetie Drops works for the agency of S.M.I.L.E -- The Secret Monster Intelligence League of Equestria. It also turns out that S.M.I.L.E considers Twilight and her friends to be an unofficial sub-faction of ''their'' organization, which they call F.R.O.W.N -- Friendship Ranger Organization of Worldwide Neighgotiations.
* TheMenInBlack: S.M.I.L.E effectively serves as this to Equestria, something hammered in by the cover-art depicting Lyra and Bon-Bon wearing the trademark black suits and sunglasses. Their mission is to keep monsters in check should they get way too dangerous for ponies.
