  • Perhaps not so much Referenced by... as Take That! in With This Ring, with the quoted text including a direct link to the main story.
    "But if we can get back to the point?" Sunset folds her arms across her chest and waits for a moment. "If we assume that my revised calculations for the application of magic 'work' are even remotely accurate, Earth Ponies should be able to do a lot more than they can."
    "So… Some sort of giant Earth Pony conspiracy to keep food prices high?"
    "What?" Sunset frowns. "No, that's absurd. Aside from the fact that only a minority of Earth Ponies work on commercial farms, that would require them to keep it secret from non-Earth Pony husbands, wives, parents and children. And Alicorns have the magic of all three tribes."
  • Likewise being more of a Take That! than anything else, during the "Cutie Bloom" portion of Fanfic Theater 3015's "Multipart Blitz", a theory is put forward in regards to how the Cutie Mark Crusaders are written:
    "All mah friends and ah ever did was cause mischief all over Ponyville.
    Crazy56U: Aw, come on Mai Can, I got enough of this bullshit from fucking Estee... Actually, given the timetable, I wouldn't be surprised if Estee got inspiration from Mai Can... ...fuck Estee.
    "Rarity, I'm scared," murmured Sweetie Belle. "What if this is the end of the Cutie Mark Crusaders?"
    • Similarly, in the second half:
    Although the Cutie Mark Crusaders caused mischief and mayhem several times over, the denizens of Ponyville finally realized it was all unintentional and they were still good little fillies at heart.
    Crazy56U: It's really sad that the shit Author understands this point, but the good Author doesn't.
