The Beginning of the End - Part 1

  • When Twilight says "Starlight, can you stay here and take care of the school?", it is Starlight's voice that comes out of Twilight's mouth when she says "and take care of the school?", most likely from a change in the script. --Master Templar Shay (talk) 02:29, April 15, 2019 (UTC)
  • When Twilight grinning crazily at Starlight her upper eyelashes are missing on her left eye.WaleedTariq140 (talk ) 08:29, October 18, 2019 (UTC).

Sparkle's Seven

  • During the shot where Twilight talks to Rarity about her opinion to break into Celestia’s Castle, when Twilight’s body moves to the right, Spike disappears from the shot, and then reappears a few shots later. User:Lovable98159/Sig 05:04, April 21, 2019 (UTC)
  • During Applejack's flashback/fantasy, in the first shot of Apple Chord as a teenager, Apple Bloom can be seen in the crowd with her cutie mark, compared to the rest of the shots where she does not have her cutie mark. --Lightening McQueen (talk) 18:28, April 24, 2019 (UTC)
  • Twilight and Applejack's discussion of Applejack bucking through a wall happens immediately after a guard fires Zephyr Breeze. In fact, the camera actually pans from 1 to the other (18:22). But when the beginning and end of the pan are combined, we can see that there's only about 20 feet between these 2 things, so Applejack breaking through the wall happens right next to a guard and construction worker, and the guard is even looking in their direction and actually walking toward them with nothing obscuring her view. --Reversalmushroom sig.png 14:40, May 25, 2019 (UTC)
    • That's not an animation error. That's just overanalyzing the scene. ImperfectXIII Wiki signature.png FANMADE ImperfectXIII OC pixel animation.gif 15:06, May 25, 2019 (UTC)
      • It's clearly a mistake. Twilight&friends are trying to sneakily break into a place. So they break down a wall right next to a guard who is looking right at all this? And it's extremely loud. But these 2 things not being in the frame together makes it seem like the creators just forgot about it, like Twilight and Applejack are in some secluded spot, or if they were aware, like they didn't want the audience to think about it, like they thought if they were in separate shots, we wouldn't connect it. Characters who are offscreen don't suddenly stop existing. So right next to Applejack breaking the wall down is a guard watching it, and the construction worker had to hear it too. Even if you don't think it's an error in the animation, how is that "overanalyzing"? That is a huge, gaping flaw.--Reversalmushroom sig.png 15:17, May 25, 2019 (UTC)
        • It's an in-universe flaw, not a reflection of the animation itself. That's the main purpose of this forum: to point out animation errors, not to explain/reconcile perceived story mistakes. ImperfectXIII Wiki signature.png FANMADE ImperfectXIII OC pixel animation.gif 15:42, May 25, 2019 (UTC)
          • I wouldn't put in stuff like "this thing a character did doesn't make sense" because that's writing and has nothing to do with animation. This is because of the layout artists/people who actually made the art and animated it. I highly doubt the writers specified that they wanted these 2 things to be that close together with nothing obscuring them and to make the guard be looking at it and walking toward it. I've heard stories where artists on a show will just work on 1 part of something and be unaware of the rest, so they'll make things that don't entirely fit in. This might not be something like characters having missing body parts and wrong cutie marks, but I thought it counted because it is an error stemming from the visual side of things, because of the art makers, so it is an error from the animating aspect of the show.--Reversalmushroom sig.png 16:11, May 25, 2019 (UTC)
