A video by MisterDavie based on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and using a remixed version of Pinkie's Image Song "Smile". It starts off innocently enough with Pinkie running through a field towards her friends Applejack, Twilight Sparkle, and Rarity, who are relaxing under a tree on a checkered blanket. Twilight even sees her and gives a friendly wave.

However, once she gets close enough, she leaps into the air and decapitates Twilight with a roundhouse kick. And from there, it only gets worse...


This Video Has Examples of:

  • Anyone Can Die: Starting with Twilight, but eventually, Pinkie gets everyone killed by blowing up the planet.
  • Apocalypse How: Apparently, laughing at the most cheerful, energetic, joy-spreading pony in Ponyville can cause one.
  • Asshole Victim: Applejack, who did get enjoyment out of seeing Pinkie Pie kill Rarity.
  • Ax-Crazy: Pinkie Pie.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Pinkie successfully kills all her friends and blows up the planet.
  • Battle Aura: Pinkie Pie emits pink electricity after her explosive recovery.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Fluttershy delivers quite a beatdown on Pinkie.
    • Pinkie counts too, seeing as her friends had no freaking idea that she was about to flip.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Rainbow Dash saves Applejack from getting pummeled by Pinkie Pie. At least for a moment.
  • Body Wipe: The camera swiftly zooms out of Pinkie Pie's cutie mark as she is galloping across the field.
  • Advertisement:
  • Bolt of Divine Retribution: Uniquely subverted. Rainbow Dash bears a cutie mark of a lightning bolt and ambushes Pinkie Pie, whose actions go against everything that represents friendship under Princess Celestia's rule.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Pinkie uses the actual subtitles to stop Fluttershy from pummeling her.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Pinkie uses a bar of lyrics from the video as a blunt weapon against Fluttershy.
  • Cool Shades: Rainbow Dash sports a pair while flying.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Many. Twilight gets her head kicked off, Rarity has her skull crushed, Applejack gets vaporized by an energy beam, Rainbow Dash gets pounded in the stomach so hard that her intestines spew through her mouth, and Fluttershy is obliberated by Pinkie's energy bomb with graphic detail.
  • Curb-Stomp Cushion: Fluttershy managed to give Pinkie Pie an ass-kicking that would destroy any other pony, but it wasn't enough to stop her from destroying the planet.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Averted. Pinkie Pie did not hesitate in using the mountain-sized energy sphere that was enough to destroy the planet.
  • Death by Looking Up: Rarity.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: According to the description of the video, Pinkie Pie is getting back at her friends for laughing at her.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: What other character do you know who murders countless victims with a smile on his face?
  • Driven to Suicide: Being laughed at was enough to motivate Pinkie Pie into blowing herself up and the planet.
  • Earth-Shattering Kaboom: The End.
  • Energy Ball: How Pinkie takes out Fluttershy and the entire planet.
  • Evil Is Petty: Why is Pinkie committing these atrocities? Because she grew tired of her own Element of Harmony.

  • Future Shadowing: You can see a planet exploding behind the Warning text in the beginning of the video.
  • Gorn: A staple of the animator's works.
  • The Hero Dies:
    • Twilight Sparkle is arguably the main protagonist of the show, and gets killed off first.
    • Fluttershy, who is arguably the main protagonist of the video, attempt to avenge her friends. Woe, as she, and all others, fall.
  • Heroic Second Wind: Inverted. Pinkie Pie gets grounded into the dirt by Dashie's supersonic kick, appearing mortally wounded or dead. It only takes a moment for her to get back up a billion times stronger than before.
  • Hitler Cam: An extreme variant.
    • The close-up of Pinkie Pie's... "nether regions" has stirred up some controversy among viewers. While some may argue that the shot was to depict her as an "unstoppable force", establishing awe and reverence, and that it was harmless since all characters depicted in the video lack attributes, others have debated that it attracted another kind of attention.
  • Hope Spot: It appears for a while that Fluttershy will put an end to Pinkie's rampage.
  • Instant Gravestone: Rarity's grave can be seen on the right side of the screen for a second as Rainbow Dash kicks Pinkie Pie in the face.

  • Made of Iron: Pinkie takes a Sonic Rainboom-powered kick to the face and a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown and gets up, completely unruffled, every time.
  • Meteor Move: Pinkie kills Rainbow with a Type A (into a Type B). Fluttershy smacks Pinkie with a Type C, but she manages to counter with her own Type A.
  • Metronomic Man Mashing: Fluttershy, of all ponies, gives a brutal one to Pinkie.
  • Mood Whiplash: Without question how the video got its fame. A great many reaction clips on Youtube show viewers demonstrating this very trope.
  • Mugging the Monster: Pinkie eliminates the most badass of the Mane 6 like sitting ducks and targets Fluttershy. The former soon discovered that the latter wouldn't go down so easily.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Pinkie's face transitions from a creepy smile to a distorted tearful frown after zapping Fluttershy. It is uncertain whether it's regret or an insatiable urge to kill again.

  • Nightmare Face: Pinkie Pie's "smile" is enough to give anyone nightmares.
  • Ninja Prop: While fighting Fluttershy, Pinkie grabs one of the subtitles at the bottom of the screen and hits her with it, to Fluttershy's surprise.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Fluttershy delivers this on Pinkie before she regains control.
  • Noodle Incident: The description of the video does not explain WHY Twilight, Rarity, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, or Fluttershy were laughing at Pinkie Pie in the first place, nor does it include any insight on the circumstances that lead to Pinkie seeking revenge.
  • Not Enough to Bury: Applejack is completely vaporized by Pinkie's ki blast.
  • Off with Her Head!: Happens to Twilight.
  • Oh, Crap!: Each of the remaining Mane 6 has this reaction as Pinkie Pie grows more powerful and dangerous.

  • Refuge in Audacity: The over-the-top nature of the video works in its favor.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Fluttershy. And arguably, Pinkie Pie.
  • Roundhouse Kick: How Pinkie took out Twilight.
  • Shadow of Impending Doom
  • Shout-Out: The Ki Manipulation, Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs, and all the fighting left exclusively to the ponies that could fly are an obvious homage to Dragon Ball Z.
  • Slasher Smile: Pinkie Pie sports one a little too well.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: The lyrics to the song expresses how Pinkie wants to make everypony smile and make their day a happy one, yet in the video, she is killing her friends off one by one in increasingly sadistic ways.
    Pinkie Pie: 'Cause cheering up my friends is just what Pinkie's here to do.
  • Stealth Pun: Rainbow Dash was unable to stop Pinkie Pie's assault and take credit for it. She gets her intestines stomped out through her mouth soon after. This can be seen as a literal example of "No Guts, No Glory."
  • Sudden Downer Ending/Twist Ending: Not only does Pinkie Pie succeed in murdering all of her friends, she also kills off every single character in the MLP canon, including herself, by destroying the planet.

  • Taking You with Me: Pinkie uses a gigantic ki sphere that kills Fluttershy and herself, along with everyone on the planet.
  • Tempting Fate: Fighting back and attacking Pinkie Pie will only make her stronger. Unfortunately, Fluttershy didn't get that message.
  • Thing-O-Meter: Apparently Pinkie has a "Kill-O-Meter" in her head, divided into five levels: Safe, Not Safe, Run, Super Saiyan, and You're Fucked.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Fluttershy has this reaction towards Pinkie's Energy Orb that almost completely covered the sky, and was aimed right at her.
  • Three-Point Landing: Pinkie on Rarity's face.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Applejack doesn't find it the least bit alarming that Pinkie Pie slaughtered Twilight and Rarity right in front of her. Instead, she just sat there.
    • One has to wonder WHY she would gleefully watch another Earth pony kill two unicorns.
  • The Unsmile: Some first-time watchers get suspicious that this isn't as cute and cheerful as the music implies because Pinkie's smile is a little too big...
  • Visual Pun: Pinkie Pie uses pink ki blasts to attack her friends.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Played straight literally.
