* FandomNod:
** ''Boast Busted'' twice hints that Lyra's hooves were turned into...something, which is always cut off before the speaker can finish. Those who are familiar with Lyra's fanon characterization can probably guess what that something is. More hints to these events are dropped during ''Family Matters''. The events mentioned are ''finally'' shown in "Helping... Hands?", where Lyra is turned into a human directly. [[spoiler: And, in a MythologyGag, hates it.]]
** In ''Carrot Top of the Line'' Rarity comments multiple time about liking Carrot Top's mane. There is also a MythologyGag in there.
** When Shining Armor meets Luna, he notices an [[Fanfic/{{Progress}} abacus.]]
** Silver Script's (Ditzy's boss) baseball bat has words "Love and Tolerance" written into it.



** Dr. Ritter of ''Past Remnants'' was originally going to be [[JustForFun/DaringDo Dr. Caballeron]], but seeing how [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E4DaringDont defictionalizing Daring Do]] [[BrokenBase worked out]] for the show, the Quorum asked [=GreyGuardPony=]to change it. [[ShrugOfGod Not that Daring Do is or isn't real in the Lunaverse]], it's just a question the Quorum would prefer to leave unanswered for the aforementioned reason.

* WordOfGod: The authors of the Lunaverse are fond of putting in additional details or tidbits in the comments sections or author's notes of their stories. For example, the official hierarchy of Equestrian gentry and nobility was outlined in the comments of ''Longest Night, Longest Day'', rather than directly stated in any story.


* ExiledFromContinuity: Some people have...issues...with the Night Court, and the direction it was taking the Lunaverse. This extends to the series creator himself. While no Night Court story has been decanonized, [=RainbowDoubleDash=] has flatly refused to allow any more canon stories focused on the Night Court. The exception to this is [=TalonAndThorn=]'s ''Climbing the Mountain'' series, for three reasons: First, it was already in-progress, and [=RainbowDoubleDash=] didn't want to cut off [=TalonAndThorn=] from finishing it; second, it is far more focused on showing a ''positive'' side to the Night Court, rather than constant scheming and dirty dealing (notably, our perspective character is the newly-created Baron Mounty Max and him learning the ropes and trying to improve things for his new province, rather than any political games focused on gaining power or gaining control of the Elements); and third, because it is considered "soft canon" that other "hard canon" fics can contradict and take priority over if need be.

* EvilCounterpart: Several political villains created by the author Grass&Cloud2 [[WordOfGod have bee stated]] to be this to the heroes.
** Vicerine Puissance is ostensibly Ditzy's counterpart, in respect to their virtues of love and kindness. While Ditzy's love and kindness is altruistic, focused on those that she loves, Puissance only loves things insofar as they glorify or are valuable to her.
** Archduke Fisher supposedly might be this to Carrot Top, in regard to their virtues of generosity and altruism. Both are extremely selfless, but while Carrot Top is generous because she believes others have value and deserve help, Fisher is generous because he thinks that individuals do not have value, himself included, and only groups matter, so what he (and others) have must be sacrificed for the good of the group. [[WhatMightHaveBeen This arc got dropped when Siege of Stalliongrad was ruled non-canon.]]
** Duke Greengrass is another example of WhatMightHaveBeen. He wound up opposing Lyra more than the other Elements, and both exemplify loyalty but while both are deathly loyal to their close friends and allies, Lyra is also loyal to those further away for her, while the Duke is quite willing to 'weed' anyone who isn't under his protection. He also harshly punishes those who are disloyal to him, while Lyra is more forgiving. However, because this arose late in the character's development, this aspect of the character wasn't as pronounced.

** In the first draft of 'A Hard Bargain', Big Mac and Caramel were revealed to be employees of the Network, a combination of the A-Team and the Leverage crew who acted as vigilantes to fight evil and right great wrongs. This was later redacted for clashing with existing continuity (for instance, the Night Court would both know of and disallow such a group, and Trixie would report them as soon as she found out about them).

Added DiffLines:

* TorchTheFranchiseAndRun: Partial example; "At The Grand Galloping Gala" was designed to put an end to the Courtier plot for good. The massive backlash has probably derailed that.


* ScheduleSlip: 'At the Grand Galloping Gala', the season 1 finale, has taken over 3 months to finish.

Added DiffLines:

** In "Family Matters," for a brief period Fancy Pants was going to be Dinky's and Sparkler's father; however RDD chickened out and instead came up with the OC Castor Cut.


** During ''Longest Night, Longest Day'', all of the Mane Six would've been shown to have been incapacitated during Corona's return.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: As a shared universe, the series has plenty of examples, and Rainbow Double Dash and the other authors have revealed various deleted scenes and concepts they considered.
** Before Cheerilee, ''Roseluck'' was originally considered as one of the Lunaverse bearers. RDD selected the Six before distributing Elements, with Trixie as Magic being the only one set in stone; if Roseluck had made the final cut, the others could've gotten different Elements as a result.
*** On a similar note, RRD has also stated that if ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E22HurricaneFluttershy Hurricane Fluttershy]]'' had aired before the Lunaverse was already being posted, it's likely that Flitter or Cloudchaser would've replaced Raindrops because of the potential of that built-in family dynamic. Probably for the best, since Raindrops is best pony.
** Trixie was originally going to maintain her ThirdPersonPerson tendencies, but as a habit she was trying to break.
** Early on, Twilight was still going to have Spike for a companion; this would have been a double-edged sword, as he'd goad her into challenging Trixie, but ''Boast Busted'' wouldn't have ended [[DownerEnding so sadly]]. (Which could've effected the whole tone of the Lunaverse...)
** During ''Longest Night, Longest Day'', all of the Mane Six would've been shown to have been incapacitated during Corona's return.
