  • While Rainbow Dash is pretending to be part of Pinkie's banner, the parts of the painted Rainbow Dash that should be visible behind her aren't, and pop into existence when she moves away. (This is most obvious with the near wing.) --Kinrah (talk) 22:55, February 3, 2014 (UTC)
    • On a related note, her wings are not moving, although I suppose this is necessary for the joke to work, so it can presumably be dismissed as just being technically unrealistic.--Macks2010 (talk) 00:46, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

    • I'm not sure about that. Sure, those might be, but it very well may be just her costume. When she takes off her cape, there is something similarly sticking out in front, and this is definitely her costume. Vengir (talk) 22:20, March 17, 2014 (UTC)
  • At the speed the pegasi are flapping their wings to produce a wind for the Breezies, it would be impossible for them to stay in the sky. Glenn31 (talk) 20:07, May 4, 2014 (UTC)

  • At the picnic, Maud places her sandwich down on the tablecloth and then pushes Boulder towards it. While this can be seen as a sight gag with her "feeding" her pet rock, the sandwich is gone the next time that area is shown (as well as subsequent shots from different angles) possibly implying that Boulder actually did eat the sandwich. Psykechan (talk) 07:19, March 23, 2014 (UTC)
  • After Pinkie and Maud leave the picnic, when Rainbow Dash is complaining about the hide-and-seek game, her right ear does not appear flush with the rest of her head.Fluffbrain (talk) 06:05, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils

  • During the play, Scootaloo's costume doesn't have holes for her wings to get through, so they're covered up. But when she says "modest" after the play, her wings are visible and fluttering. PegasusParchment (talk) 15:39, April 24, 2014 (UTC)

  • The train the CMC were on was going from Ponyville to Canterlot that was going through a desert; there is no desert between those two towns. Prince Silversaddle (talk) 20:34, March 22, 2014 (UTC)
  • During Applejack's, Fluttershy's, and Rainbow Dash's simultaneous "Huh?", Fluttershy appears to sound like Pinkie Pie (though I concede that Pinkie Pie may have been off-screen during this line). ImperfectXIII Wiki signature.png FANMADE ImperfectXIII OC pixel animation.gif 20:06, March 22, 2014 (UTC)
    • It is also worth noting that you could not hear Fluttershy, even though she opened her mouth as if she was speaking, even if Pinkie was speaking offscreen. ILoveTogekiss (talk) 02:39, April 4, 2014 (UTC)
    • Pinkie and Fluttershy have the same voice actor TomoLucy (talk) 3:58, May 12, 2021 (UTC)

  • Luna showed Sweetie Belle the past from her dreams, but dreams take place in the person / pony's minds, and this takes place in Sweetie Belle's mind. She thought Rarity was stealing the spotlight, but Luna showed otherwise, but it was still taking place in Sweetie Belle's mind, which means in a way, Sweetie Belle already knew Rarity wasn't stealing the spotlight and just didn't think of it. --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 14:48, April 6, 2014 (UTC)

  • When Rarity is about to show the costume's hairstyle to Sapphire Shores, the box is already open but in the next scene, Rarity opens it as if it was closed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by AurelienPONI (talkcontribs)
  • At 18:32, Applebloom and Scootaloo hit a pointed window that begins to spin before Sweetie Belle enters the building. However, logically, it would be impossible for the window to rotate since the bottom of the window could not pass through the top side of the window which is pointed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by AurelienPONI (talkcontribs)

Leap of Faith

  • Granny Smith's father is shown walking past her when the injured ponies are heading towards Flim and Flam's tent, yet he is seen as his flashback self, which is younger than her present self. PegasusParchment (talk) 18:07, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

Trade Ya!

  • When Rainbow Dash expresses her incredulity at the existence of the Discord-shaped lamp stand, the stall holder's cutie mark is an hourglass. When the stall holder turns around, it's completely different. --Kinrah (talk) 10:30, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
  • Various stalls change positions over the course of the episode. For example, at one point, the comic book stand Spike is haggling at is next to the Daring Do stand, but after Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy collect the Orthros, it's next to the vintage pie tin stand instead, and an anonymous stand is next to the Daring Do stand instead. At the end of the episode, they're back next to each other again. --Kinrah (talk) 10:43, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
  • Throughout the episode, the book Rainbow wants is referred to as Daring Do and the Sapphire Statue, but the book itself, which is a holdover from Read It and Weep, clearly says "Daring Do and the Quest for the Sapphire Stone". - Jasonbres (talk) 22:13, April 20, 2014 (UTC)
  • During Rainbow Dash's line "Seriously?", Fluttershy's mane is improperly layered in one frame. ImperfectXIII Wiki signature.png FANMADE ImperfectXIII OC pixel animation.gif 00:18, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Inspiration Manifestation

  • Robins don't really use birdhouses. - Jasonbres (talk) 23:13, April 26, 2014 (UTC)
  • The binding of the book containing the spell switches sides several times between scenes, and in one instance, the binding switches sides while Spike takes the book out from underneath his arm and holds it up to show Owlowiscious. —RRabbit42 (leave a message) 03:56, January 1, 2015 (UTC)
  • As Spike first reads the spell after walking down the staircase that crumbles behind him, he is either reading the book upside down with the binding having switched sides again, or the binding and the print on the page have rotated, since the straight edge of the cover changes from being at the bottom to the top. When he shows the book to Rarity, the book is back to its original orientation. —RRabbit42 (leave a message) 03:56, January 1, 2015 (UTC)

Equestria Games

  • Prince Blueblood's cutie mark is wrong whe he's sitting with the princesses, being Fancy Pants's crowns. PegasusParchment (talk) 19:28, May 2, 2014 (UTC)
  • Rarity has Derpy eyes when talking to Twilight MudPaw (talk) 19:26, May 4, 2014 (UTC)
  • At multiple times during the episode, Twilight has normal Pegasus wings. PegasusParchment (talk) 19:32, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
  • When Twilight leaves Pinkie Pie after she invites her to join her in the stands, a Crystal Pony is layered under her feet so it looks like she is standing on his head. PegasusParchment (talk) 19:32, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
    • Pinkie standing on the Crystal Pony's head may have been intentional on the storyboarders/animators' part. ImperfectXIII Wiki signature.png FANMADE ImperfectXIII OC pixel animation.gif 19:37, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
      • Why would such an obvious error be intentional? Xeoxer (talk) 12:22, May 4, 2014 (UTC)
        • Because it may not be an error at all. The specifics for that scene may have called for Pinkie to be standing on the pony's head (because that's just the kind of thing Pinkie would do :P). ImperfectXIII Wiki signature.png FANMADE ImperfectXIII OC pixel animation.gif 16:14, May 4, 2014 (UTC)
          • After looking closely at the scene again I noticed that it was intentional because Pinkie does jump on the stallion's head while addressing Twilight before. Sorry, my mistake! PegasusParchment (talk) 16:35, May 8, 2014 (UTC)
  • STORY ERROR: Princess Twilight said last time Spike was at the Crystal Empire, he brought the crystal heart to Princess Cadance and everypony called him a hero, but if counting My Little Pony Equestria Girls, the last time Spike was at the Crystal Empire was then.
    • Sign your post, Mega Sean 45. Anyway, I'm okay if they ignore Equestria Girls, and it can also be explained as Twilight just forgetting that visit for the more memorable first visit to the Crystal Empire. Plus, the television plot is developed somewhat separately from the film's story. I think I even read recently that the team on Rainbow Rocks is making even more of an effort to keep the film separate from the show, but we'll just have to see when it's released. Dogman15 (talk) 07:54, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
      • There is easier explanation. EG actually going after 4th season by in-world chronology. That way there is no problem with Spike. Also RR starts where EG ends and there is no way entire season took place between those films. Except for "two world have different timing" – which isn't the case here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by DukeAskalord (talkcontribs)
      • Alright, but let's not forget Just for Sidekicks, Spike was at the empire for a bit, but... oh right, and Twilight doesn't know that so that's why Twilight thought the first time was the last time. --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 16:03, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
  • The stadium looks different than it did in Games Ponies Play Glenn31 (talk) 19:19, May 4, 2014 (UTC)
    • I'm sure it's because it was still under construction during that time. After all, construction projects can change over time. - Jasonbres (talk) 20:08, May 4, 2014 (UTC)
      • The stadium was renovated (reconstruction ) for the Equestria Games: 3season outside/inside, 4season outside/inside. Changes are obvious. logic/animation is not broken. | Hedgeg (talk) 21:16, June 30, 2014 (UTC)
  • During the sweeping shot of the stadium in which multiple ponies appear in the stands behind Spike, Diamond Mint appears with her head detached from her body. ImperfectXIII Wiki signature.png FANMADE ImperfectXIII OC pixel animation.gif 22:26, May 5, 2014 (UTC)

Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1

  • Did anypony else get a weird echo during the theme song or was it just me? - Jasonbres (talk) 16:16, May 10, 2014 (UTC)
    • I did't notice any, and I doubt there'd be an echo now if there hasn't been one in the past three to four years. --  Heeeeyyyy, everybody! It's Meester Tweester!   00:05, May 11, 2014 (UTC)
  • When Celestia sings "But it will become much clearer" the pink in her mane is at the top of it, in the next verse of the song, the colors are flipped the other way with blue being at the top. PegasusParchment (talk) 22:58, May 10, 2014 (UTC)
  • At multiple points during the episode (during the song and also at the end of the first part), Princess Cadance's cutie mark changes from its normal heart to the single-facet one sometimes shown in A Canterlot Wedding. PegasusParchment (talk) 17:31, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

Twilight's Kingdom - Part 2

  • If watching both parts, at 40:19 when flying away, Princess Luna's body, head, and some of her legs disappear.
  • When Tirek takes a pony's magic, their eye color fades. However, their normal color randomly returns for multiple characters.--Timesgift (talk) 08:05, May 11, 2014 (UTC)
  • When Derpy flies away after getting her flight back, she has Rainbow Dash's manestyle Glenn31 (talk) 21:56, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
  • It was never explained how the rest of the mane 6's eyes got their color back after Twilight recieved her key. Glenn31 (talk) 21:56, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
    • It had something to do with the Rainbow Power. - Jasonbres (talk) 00:37, May 17, 2014 (UTC)
  • The Map of Equestria is missing the Crystal Empire, as it did when it was first created. The Crystal Empire was added to the official map after Season 3 started. Dogman15 (talk) 03:15, May 13, 2014 (UTC)
