Inside Jokes

  • The episode is a possibly a depiction of fanbases of movies and TV shows, more specifically the show itself in general. Many of the things the ponies argue about such as Twilight getting wings, Fluttershy learning to be assertive, and whether Pinkie Pie and Applejack are related are real things the fans of My Little Pony argue about. Since the backlash and criticism for this episode from the fans, writer M.A. Larson revealed that even he, himself, was not exactly enthused about the episode's premise and knew right from the start that it would anger the fanbase.


  • According to writer M.A. Larson, the song "Flawless" was originally only sang by Twilight, but was then expanded to the entire Mane Six as to try and get the message across.
