Fridge / The Elements of Harmony and the Savior of Worlds

Go To

Fridge Brilliance:

  • In chapter 6, when confronted with a talking purple unicorn, Mike…manages not to freak out, mentioning that he "learned a long time ago how weird the world can get". This starts making a lot more sense when we learn that this is happening on the same Earth as G.I. Joe and G1 Transformers.
  • Nightmare Moon is trying to bring about The Night That Never Ends, just like Tirac. Because she's heard stories about him.
    • Alternately, this leads credence to the theory that Tirac was the one who corrupted Luna.
  • Chip can walk now, because he's wearing an exosuit like Jessica Morgan in "The Return of Optimus Prime, Part 1 & 2".

  • Granny Bonnie, the creator of the world where Ponyland/Equestria is, is named after Bonnie D. Zacherle, the creator of the original toyline that started it all. Faust the Scribe is named after Lauren Faust, who revitalized the franchise with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
  • In "United We Stand," President Abernathy almost seems to bend over backwards to avoid having to fight Empress Celestia and her forces. Given that he's a former GI Joe, and lived through things like the Decepticons, the Inhumanoids, and more, it makes sense that he's not immediately trying to jump in and fight yet another war.


Fridge Horror:

  • If the "Hasbro Earth" is the setting of not only the Earth-side of My Little Pony G1, but also of The Transformers G1, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Dungeons & Dragons and Jem & The Holograms, then doesn't that mean it might also be the setting of Inhumanoids, the short-lived, Nightmare Fuel-rich series about kaiju-sized Eldritch Abominations clawing their way up from the depths of the planet to wreak havoc on the surface? Especially considering it's usually considered to be set in the same world as Transformers and G.I. Joe anyway, given that a certain minor character appears in all three series?
    • "The Conversion Bureau: United We Stand", chapter 7 confirms that the Inhumanoids are amongst the alien threats faced by humanity in the 20 years since the Rainbow Bridge first opened.
  • If the Wendigos were driven off, why are the Founders still frozen in ice and conscious?
    • That might be revealed in a later story.
  • Tirac might not stop at ruling Equestria, he may have his sights on Earth next.
  • Megan's kids had nightmares about Tirac after reading her first My Little Horsey book. What if every other kid did?
    • It's quite possible many did. Several villains from real life popular children's media - such as Maleficent - have been known to cause nightmares.
  • Have the Decepticons truly surrendered to the Autobots, or are they biding their time?
    • In The Conversion Bureau: United We Stand, it's revealed that ultimately, the Decepticons split into two factions. Starscream took a bunch of Decepticons and settled a small planet of their own. He comes to Cybertron to barter the Decepticons' aid to Earth in exchange for a serious peace treaty. He gets to be ruler of the Decepticons, his faction isn't wiped out by the alliance, it stabilizes a region of space, and most importantly, it draws Decepticons away from Galvatron's faction. Meanwhile, the other faction of Decepticons follows Galvatron, who has gone nuts, his faction has low morale and supplies, and is more of a nuisance at this point than a full threat.

  • This universe also suffered from the Hate Plague. Were the Williams/Richards safe somewhere when it happened, or have they also got infected?
