Trivia / My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic S6 E12 "Flutter Brutter"

Go To

  • Fan Nickname:
    • Fluttermom and Flutterdad for Mr. and Mrs. Shy.
    • Other possible nicknames for Fluttershy's mother are Velma (due to her glasses and hairstyle) and Posey.
    • Before Zephyr Breeze's name was revealed, many fans called him "Brothershy".
  • I Knew It!: When the synopsis was released, fans were quick to associate the "GET A JOB" meme with this episode. This turned out to be right on the mark as Fluttershy tells her brother to do just that.
  • Jossed:
    • Based on the synopsis (and some self-loathing), many fans assumed Fluttershy's brother would be a Hikikomori and felt he was intended as This Loser Is You. The episode clearly shows him as more of a slacker with an overblown sense of entitlement.
    • A few fans had thought from the synopsis that Fluttershy was going to have to learn how to assert herself again. Instead, she asserts herself throughout the episode.
  • Meme Acknowledgment: Zephyr calls Fluttershy "Flutter Butter", referencing a meme of shooping Fluttershy's mane and tail onto a stick of butter.
  • Out of Order: This is the twelfth episode in production order but is the eleventh episode in broadcast order.
  • Word of God: That there was going to be an episode involving Fluttershy and her brother was news revealed by the showrunners before the start of Season 5 during the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. It just took a bit longer for that episode to actually get to air.
