YMMV / Pinkie Pie's Fourth-Wall Variety Show

Go To

  • Archive Panic: Something shared with its parent series. With ten "episodes" made of multiple parts (The tenth episode itself has over ten parts) and the submission/discussion-in-comments nature of the story, there's quite a lot of material to read.
  • Ensemble Darkpony:
    • Coffee Swirl has become a major character in the 4th Wall Show continuity. In the Variety Show Special, he actually manages to wound Morning Star armed with only a sword and his courage.

    • The Blank Wolf from main continuity, as a puppy.
  • Fanfic Fuel: A lot of the universes depicted in the What If Machine. The universe created by Red Gala's existence also qualifies.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: After one session with the What If Machine where Twilight battled Morning Star in a world literally shaped by the beliefs of mortals based loosely on Shin Megami Tensei, the girls gave commentary with Rarity mentioning that she's "all for faith and love giving somepony strength, but I'd rather not become a mean old nag simply because everypony else thinks it's true." Nyarlathotrot and Discord would later concoct a reality-warping plan that would result in exactly that and then some in the Rumors Arc of the Parent Series.

How well does it match the trope?
