Accidental Innuendo / My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

Go To

  • Rarity's shop includes bridles (one is even shown on Carousel Boutique's sign), as seen in various episodes (such as "Swarm of the Century", in which Twilight calls outfits incorporating them "gorgeous") and other official materials (such as Adventures in Ponyville, in which Rarity and Applejack wear them). Given that ponies don't even wear them while pulling carriages ("Over a Barrel", "The Best Night Ever", etc.), it makes you wonder just what they are supposed to be used for...
  • Advertisement:
  • A line from the Theme Tune Extended (included as a sing-along on the DVD The Friendship Express) mentions fun and laughter being "as easy as Pinkie Pie".
  • "Bridle Gossip"!
    • Rarity is lounging in a hot tub, with a look of sheer bliss on her face. Cue Pinkie rising out of the water in, um, questionable proximity to Rarity....
    • Alternatively: "I have located the water jet."
    • In the same episode, Twilight Sparkle's horn becomes floppy with blue dots on it. The way it flops around is reminiscent of, well... you get the picture. The way Spike stares at it on the verge of cracking up almost implies he's in on the joke.
  • In "Winter Wrap Up", due to where Spike is sitting during Twilight's first verse in the "Winter Wrap Up" song, it's easy to see how he might be doing something else entirely. The way he bounces while Twilight is walking along does not help.
  • "Sonic Rainboom":
    • The end, in which Rainbow Dash flies off with two (male) members of the Wonderbolts and declares "... I've got plans!", could be taken as this.
    • That same episode also opens with Fluttershy recapping "the elements of a good cheer": "loss of control", "screaming and hollering", and "passion". Taken out of context, it kinda sounds like she and Rainbow Dash are talking about... something else. Not to mention that it's given out of context, with no explanation until afterwards.
  • "Stare Master":
    • The Cutie Mark Crusaders:
    Apple Bloom: Well if I ever saw one of them cock-a-thingies face to face, I'd laugh at how silly it was!
  • "The Show Stoppers": This line from the Cutie Mark Crusaders' theme song: "When you're a younger pony/And your flank is very bare".
  • A visual version happens in the "Over a Barrel" episode. In one scene Rainbow Dash's wings are folded but after Pinkie Pie comes out dressed as a showgirl, they are wide spread. Previous episodes showed that this sort of reaction from her (one moment they're folded and then next they're spread) is a sign of excitement. Considering Rainbow Dash has considerable amounts of Les Yay and is often thought of as be fans to be a Lesbian Jock, it's been thought she was... excited when Pinkie came out.
  • "The Best Night Ever":
    • Spike remarking, "I gotta show Rarity the crown jewels."
    • To get the Wonderbolts' attention Rainbow Dash catapults a male pony into the air and "saves" him from the fall by catching him on her back... and if you cut the last scene out of context, it suddenly starts looking completely different. It doesn't help that Rainbow's expression looks really dirty.
  • "The Return of Harmony Part 2" features this gem: note 
    Fluttershy: Um...I'm just wondering if it's okay if I hold you down against your will for a little bit?
  • "Luna Eclipsed":
    • Pipsqueak's "Scary, but(t) fun!" at the end of "Nightmare Night".
    • During Twilight's awkward attempt to bond with Princess Luna, she touches her on the chest. This would be fine, if not for the face Luna pulls, and Twilight's embarrassed reaction.
  • "May the Best Pet Win!":
    • Rainbow Dash tells Twilight that her inability to understand the difference between "coolness", "awesomeness", and "radicalness" is why she would never qualify to be her pet. Errmmm...
  • "The Mysterious Mare Do Well":
  • When Rainbow Dash pulls in Applejack for a photo opportunity, the positioning of the mouths and Applejack's reaction afterwards suggests something a bit more than being pulled into shot, which the fandom has noticed.
  • Rainbow Falls:
  • "Pinkie Pride":
    • "You know that with Cheese Sandwich you'll be partying all night!"
  • "Filli Vanilli":
    • While this isn't the first time a mare has been pinned on her back in the show under another pony, the shot of Pinkie Pie over a sobbing Fluttershy could easily be interpreted very badly if viewed out of context.
  • "It Ain't Easy Being Breezies":
    • At one point, Fluttershy dresses up like a bee and asks a swarm of them if it "brings to mind any images" for them while wiggling her butt at them suggestively.
    • "I LOVE new ideas that make me feel funny at first!" Oh, Pinkie...
    • While the town is gathering to watch the Breezies, Spike can't see them due to many ponies in front of him blocking his way. We're treated to some gratuitous views of the ponies' rear ends and Spike's excited expressions surely don't help.
  • "Leap of Faith'':
    • An expression like "a pony of a different color" seems out of place in a world with ponies of all different colors, especially one in which no prejudice has been shown to any particular coat or mane color. Perhaps its origins are in a much earlier time when such prejudices were common?
    • Flim's line in the song about swollen hindquarters is accompanied by himself looking at the swollen hindquarters of another pony and smiling as he delivers it.
  • In "Testing Testing 1, 2, 3", Twilight's delivery of "Look at us" during the fashion lesson is a bit...seductive.
  • In "Inspiration Manifestation", Fluttershy's hesitation before calling one room in the new birdhouse a "bedroom". A bit of self-censorship, perhaps?
  • "The Cutie Map - Part 1" has this line said by Party Favor with a suggestive look and a smile on his face:
    "Well, you've certainly come to the right place for friendship."
  • "The Cutie Map - Part 2":
    • When Party Favor makes his balloon binoculars and the balloon bridge, the shot shows him sitting down on his haunches, working his hooves feverishly in front of him to produce the final work. However, the shot cuts off just below his torso and the action in his hoofs just out of shot and blurred enough to make it look like he's working something else...
    • When Applejack gets her cutie mark back, the first thing she says is "Finally I can buck like a five-bit snake herder at an Appleloosa ranch house again!" It isn't immediately obvious to most viewers what bucking has to do with snake herding, or why a snake herder's services might be needed at a ranch house...
  • In "Castle Sweet Castle", as Twilight wakes up, she pierces a pancake with her horn and it dangles there covered in whipped cream.
  • In "Slice of Life", Octavia and Vinyl make "beautiful music" together. This involves a lot of longing looks, Octavia undressing, and suggestive smiling between them. It's almost borderline G-Rated Sex.
  • "Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?": Fluttershy's dream is being brushed by a giant Angel Bunny, and she says "It's so nice to be the pet for once." So she's into pet play?
  • "Party Pooped" brings us more of Cherry Jubilee's interesting word choices.
    • "I'm dandy as a daffodil and fit as a floribunda. What can I do ya for?"
    • "Me and the boys are powerful tired 'cause we was up all night countin' cherries."
  • "Celestial Advice": "There is no wrong way to fantasize."
  • In "Daring Done", while chasing Rainbow Dash (Who was being captured by Dr. Caballeron and his goons), Pinkie Pie stops for a moment, exhausted, and exclaims while panting "I'm... coming... Rainbow... Dash!!!" Yeah...
