Added DiffLines:

* ColorfulContrails: When moving in SuperSpeed, Pinkie/Filli-Second trails a pink-and-magenta streak superimposed with a white lightning bolt.


** The catchphrase became HilariousInHindsight after ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks Rainbow Rocks]]''.


** Twilight as Masked Matter-Horn has the power to fire various kinds of beams from her form, mainly manifesting as [[AnIcePerson ice]] and (briefly) [[FrickinLaserBeams laser]] magic.

** EllenKennedy played Daffidazey, a stylist, in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3''. (Naturally, that's what the Mane-iac was before her StartOfDarkness. Sadly, her previous form doesn't really look like Daffidazey.)

* RageBreakingPoint: With an heavy emphasis on "rage"! Fluttershy is unable to unleash her Saddle Rager persona until the near end of the episode, [[spoiler: when she sees The Mane-iac swatting away a random firefly. Being a lover of all things animals, Fluttershy is reasonably upset, to put it mildly, and finally [[HulkingOut hulks out]] complete with RantInducingSlight.

** When Spike sees the Mane Six in their Power Ponies costumes, he says, "Holy new personas, ponies!" in a parody of "Holy X, Batman!" from the 1960s live-action ''Series/{{Batman}}'' series.

Added DiffLines:

* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: When Mane-iac laughs at Spike for thinking she was going to paralyze him, she briefly uses her mane to tickle him under the chin while telling him it would be "[[KickTheDog pointless]]" before leaving him alone.


* AwesomeButImpractical: The hairspray completely paralyzes ponies and takes away their powers, but only lasts a couple minutes. Mane-iac compensates by assigning one of her henchmen to give another dose when it's about to wear off. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny He uses an egg timer.]]

** Among the Power Ponies is Mistress Marevelous, who's essentially a Franchise/{{Batman}}-esque hero except for the lasso that can be controlled by thought.

** Applejack/Mistress Marevelous wields a lasso (which glows when in use), a nod to Franchise/WonderWoman and a hint of Franchise/{{Batman}} with a pair of horseshoes she throws around the ankles of a charging mook to stop him.

* OneOfUs: InUniverse. Spike's a comic book geek.


* BeautifulVoid: Aside from the Mane Six[=/=]Power Ponies, the Mane-iac, and the Mane-iac's henchponies, the city of Maretropolis is completely deserted.

** The Mane-iac is a combination of a number of different supervillains: SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker (origin, green hair, and insanity), [[Franchise/SpiderMan Doctor Octopus]] (mad scientist behavior and the distinctive way that he moves around with super-powered appendages), and [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Sedusa]] (PrehensileHair and overall hair theme).

** The Mane-iac's origin story bears a strong similarity to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's -- in fact, [[http://www.kidzworld.com/article/29087-my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-and-equestria-girls-top-10-easter-eggs confirmed by Mike Vogel]] as specifically to ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke''. Her personality is also close enough, seeing as she has a tendency to [[LaughingMad laugh a lot]] and make very bad puns. Not to mention that her EvilPlan to mess up everypony's hair sounds more like a practical joke than a doomsday device, again a common element of the campy '60s Batman show and Cesar Romaro's version of the Joker. Even having themed henchponies (the four unique ones and the regular mooks, all with hair and cutie marks suggesting hair styling) is a staple of that program.
