[[redirect:VideoGame/OtherFriendshipIsMagicFanGames]]'''Minty Fresh Adventure!''' is a platformer starring Colgate, who wishes to change her Cutie Mark and goes to Zecora for help. Zecora can help her with a potion, but needs an ingredient and sends Colgate off on a FetchQuest for it. The ingredient is the wisdom tooth of the monster in the Cave of Wisdom to the east.

Can be found [[ online]], or as a [[ download]].


* BalefulPolymorph: Touching Poison Joke turns Colgate into a tube of toothpaste.
* BearsAreBadNews: There is an Ursa Minor, a giant space bear. [[spoiler:You have to fight it, and its presumed parent, the Ursa Major]].
* CollisionDamage: Colgate gets hurt if she touches enemies while time isn't stopped.
* ContinuityNod: One achievement is called "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E12CallOfTheCutie I Didn't Put These in My Bag]]".
* DamselInDistress: Minty, who is trapped in a prison in the Cave of Wisdom.
* DemBones: Skeleton ponies.
* DoubleJump: You get it by reading a Double Jump Manual from Trixie's shop.
-->'''Trixie:''' ''I don't know why it took a whole book to say that.''
* ExcitedShowTitle: The title has an exclaimation mark at the end.
* FlippingTheTable: Trixie does this twice with the desks she uses for her PNN reports.
* GoombaStomp: Works for multiple enemies, but not all. Also, the effects for them in the Cave of Wisdom, get explosions when done.
** The owlbears can be defeated by jumping on their heads.
** The skeleton ponies can be disassembled by jumping on them, but will reassemble later, unless done in a time stop, where they don't regenerate.
* HealingPotion: The Carton of Milk from Trixie's shop restores you to full health and cures Poison Joke.
* HeartsAreHealth: The LifeMeter at the bottom of the screen, is initially in three sections, represented by three {{Heart Symbol}}s.
* HonestJohnsDealership: Trixie runs a shop from an airship above the Everfree Forest. Since a PNN news report mentioned a 10,000 bit bounty on her, it's likely the items and upgrades she sells aren't exactly legal.
* HyperactiveMetabolism: Colgate can recover health and {{mana}} by eating red and green apples, respectively.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Kind of. Colgate wants to change her cutie mark so she can have the rather mundane talent of dentistry, rather than having the power to ''manipulate the flow of time''. Unless the ability to manipulate time is a moderately common talent among ponies, this can appear to be an exaggerated or even parodied version of this trope.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Colgate's giant toothbrush that she stabs and whacks enemies with.
* ManaMeter: A bar below Colgate's LifeMeter, that fills up with blue as she gains {{Mana}}.
* MercyInvincibility: The big Troglodytes in the Cave of Wisdom gets a few seconds of invincibility when hit three times.
* MythologyGag: A hidden area in the cave near the entrance [[spoiler:holds a statue of [[Characters/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials Megan.]] Interacting with it makes your meter recharge instantaneously for the rest of the game.]]
** [[Characters/MyLittlePonyG3 Minty]] shows up in a sidequest where you rescue her from a hidden prison. [[spoiler:It's in the pit next to the sock.]]
* {{Panacea}}: The Carton of Milk from Trixie's shop restores you to full health and cures Poison Joke, which is every negative condition available in the game.
* RegeneratingMana: The Green Crystal from Trixie's shop regenerates the magic meter slowly, while the [[spoiler:blessing from the Statue of Megan]] regenerates magic much faster.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: The Troglodytes in the Cave of Wisdom.
* SavePoint: There are checkpoints marked by pedestals holding orbs that light up when used. Noted by Colgate when activated, depending on what she says, which can vary between:
--> {{Checkpoint}}!\\
Whew! Safe.\\
Alright! A [[BuffySpeak save orb... thingy]].
* ShoutOut: Multiple:
** Colgate's TimeStandsStill ability? It's [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto Kabuto's Clock Up ability.]] Complete with the sound effects.
** And if you jump on the skeleton ponies, they collapse, but you do no damage and it reassembles, just like a certain skeleton turtle. [[spoiler:Easy to miss, since one does not think of jumping on a skeleton pony that throws projectiles. (but jumping on those breaks them, so this is actually good point grinding.)]]
** One achievement is "[[ Fu- Forget You Ah Can Eat All These Apples]]".
** Another achievement is "[[Film/DeadPoetsSociety No Poet's Society]]".
** The news segment from Trixie's shop is a parody of the news sequences from ''VideoGame/ConquestOfTheCrystalPalace'', which were viewable at that game's shops.
* SpeedEchoes: Colgate get them in the "earliest ones fade out" style when she stops time.
* SpeedStripes: Overlaid on the background when Colgate [[TimeStandsStill stops time]].
* TakenForGranite: Basilisks turn Colgate into stone when they touch. Even when she's been transformed into a giant tube of toothpaste.
* TimeParadox: Multiple:
** [[spoiler:Derpy]] gives Colgate [[spoiler:a letter]] from [[spoiler:herself in]] the future that you can make not happen.
** A time paradox is mentioned in [[spoiler:Minuette's resume]], leading to people being placed in [[HumanPopsicle suspended animation]].
* TimeStandsStill: Colgate's cutie mark gives her the power to stop time with a ChargedAttack, the ability being a ShoutOut to ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto''' "Clock Up" ability. It also grants her invincibility to CollisionDamage and can be customized to play Boots Randolph's "Yakety Sax" while it's active, or some rock song. It gives Colgate faded out SpeedEchoes, plays some sort of wooshing sound by default that stops into silence after a while, and some some faded SpeedStripes overlaid onto the background.
* WhatTheHellPlayer: If you [[spoiler:knock on Zecora's door]] over 6 times, she will refuse to entertain you.
