You’d figure a show about cute ponies would be nice and cute, right? You’re dead wrong. The villains in this show have several unpleasant things in store for both the viewers, the [[TokenHuman Token Humans]], and the ponies.

Added DiffLines:

** A cheerful little note? [[spoiler:The unicorns she chained to her crystal? the close up of them shows they're ''aware'', with Button staring ''right at'' Slugger, clearly not happy about her condition. Somnambula [[AndIMustScream had them chained up like that, sucking the life and magic out of them for the entire day]], intending to keep them that way forever.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Lavan abusing his minions is also rather terrifying. Especially when he throws Sludge across the room into a wall and the impact is far from pleasant, or Sludge's ''scream'' when Lavan blasts him in the face.
** The Jewel Desert turns anything it touches to crystal while Lavan's meddling sends it out of control, including living things. One of the poor Bushwoolies finds this out the hard way...and then Wind Whistler is pinned under a crystalized branch while one of her friends desperately tries to save her, both acknowledging that there's no way help will come in time to prevent the desert from getting her.

Added DiffLines:

[[caption-width-right:350:Ummm.... you're doing okay there, bud?]]



* Princess Porcina turning Ponyland and its inhabitants into glass. She's not even aware of what she's done at first, saying that when she looked through her mirror the ponies didn't seem real.

!! ''My Little Pony''

Added DiffLines:

** Not to mention they manage to hold Masquerade hostage at one point by tying her up in their vines, with a sinister, "''She'' won't be going anywhere!"


* Then we have "Somnambula", which seems to owe something to ''[[WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries The Lorelei Signal]]''. We have a witch who lets every pony live their dream, with everything they wanted, [[spoiler:even as she saps their energy, accelerating their aging so fast that in a matter of hours they're really long in the tooth]].

** The shadow-less ponies in "Bright Lights" advancing on Knight Shade. The angle they're shot at makes them look like ''zombies''!

!! ''Moondreamers''

* The Night Mare, appropriately enough: an equine monster that the star-horse Andromeda turns into after falling into Monstrous Middle. If horses seem mundane to most people, the transformed Andromeda effectively illustrates how scary a horse might seem to hippophobiacs like the two-parter's human protagonist Timmy.
* In the Night Mare, there is a brief moment where thunder illuminates a statue built in honour of the Evil Queen and it does honour her nightmarish role.
* Monstrous Middle itself is a pretty terrifying place. Among gruesome monsters and horror-themed locations like dark woods and Castle Insomnia with an air so foul that it transforms space animals into abominations of nature, one could easily consider it an EldritchLocation made of negative energy.

Added DiffLines:

** The ''truly'' terrifying thing? Lavan says he hadn't gained full control over his power yet when he was destroyed, [[FridgeHorror just what would Lavan have been capable of if he'd had time to do that?]]
