Tropes in this series include:

  • Action Mom: Rainbow Dash.
    • All of the original Mane 6 with children qualify for this in some way, considering their history.

  • And I Must Scream: Rowdy Ruff goes on a rampage during the blue moon against her will, unable to stop herself because the werepony controls her soul.
  • Arranged Marriage: Sterling has one with his foalhood friend, a crystal unicorn named Lustar, due to the fact they had gotten along as foals and due to Lustar's rare species.

  • Ascended Fangirl: Skyrocket, although she doesn't represent anyone in particular.
  • Author Avatar: Sugar Spice is a filly version of Mew.
  • Berserk Button: Colt Trailblazer seems to have had one; when Sterling mentions Trailblazer's blank flank, the former tackles him.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Pound Cake to Pumpkin Cake, although they are technically twins.
  • Big Eater: Pumpkin Cake. She'll eat raw batter from the bowl!
  • Bookworm: Sterling and, minorly, Bright.
  • Call-Back: Done often to the canon series:
    • In episode 2, Boogie mentions she was brought to Twilight by her "Boogie Sense".
  • Change the Uncomfortable Subject: In the pilot, when Rainbow Dash is pregnant with Blitzie, Rarity makes fun of her for having a third kid. Rainbow retorts by bringing up Esmeralda, and Rarity changes the subject quickly. It's later revealed that Esmeralda is Rarity's second filly, lost in the jungle as a baby and raised by Zecora as a Jungle Princess.

    • Sweet Cider is a Cool Big Cousin to Two Bit, and Trailblazer is occasionally a Cool Big Bro for Blitzie.

  • Terrified of Germs: Rosethorn.
  • A Wild Rapper Appeared: "No Fillies Allowed" will include a rap scene.
