Next best thing to having Discord in this movie?
Rainbow Dash is the best cider addict, y'all.
"Fabulous takes forever!"
"...can get done in four seconds flat!"
"Oh, come on, it's fine!"
"If you were raised in a barn!"
You just lost Taboo, Rarity!
"Ahem, no offense, Applejack."
"Especially since I wasn't raised in a barn."
"My family just happens to have a barn."
"And... spent most of my formative years..."
"This will be the biggest celebration Equestria has ever seen!"
"As the Princess of Friendship, you cannot fail!"
"This day will define who you are!"
"The pressure is intense!"
"It's almost too much for any single pony to handle!"
But, you know, no pressure or anything.

The only thing dangerous about this- how much cholesterol is in that one layer of cake alone!
Mmm, Twilight cake. My favorite!
Of course, not everypony's wild about Twilight cake.
Ah yes, artist placement. We have those in other movies as well.
"You have visual on buttercream?"
"Visual confirmed. Go for cleanup."
Bodyguard jokes. Classic.
Well, that escalated quickly.
No! Not the ominous clouds!
Rainbow Dash, did you forget to fix the sky? ...again?!
"Ooh! I bet those are the clowns I ordered!"
"Or definitely not the clowns I ordered."
Is it just me, or am I starting to question the motive behind this joke?
"Ponies of Equestria, we come on behalf..."
"...of the fearsome, the powerful, the almighty..."
"And now, to deliver the evil, evil message..."
"...put your hooves together..."
"...for Commander Tempest!"
LOOK UPON ME AND DESPAIR.
"...but what happened to her horn?"
"Oh, I'm so glad you asked."
"How about we start with your complete and total surrender?"
"Hi there. Princess of Friendship."
"Not exactly sure what's going on..."
"...but I know we can talk things out."
"Here's the deal, ladies. I need your magic."
"Give it up nicely, please..."
"...or we make it difficult for everyone!"
"And why should we cower before you? There's one of you..."
"...and hundreds of us."
As if you're portraying the ponies as an army.
"I was hoping you'd choose 'difficult'."
"Seek help from the Queen of the Hippo—"
All of the princesses, minus Twilight, taken out in less than a minute. Told y'all the princesses were useless.
Hnnng! Wing-arduim Levio-saa! Ar-resto mom-entum! Why are the statues so heavy?
This blink-and-you-miss-it-save brought to you by Rainbow Dash.
Wait a second- that's not the princess! (Unless she's made the princess of muffins.)
"That's not the Princess!"
Didn't we repeat this already in this gallery page?
"Guys, we gotta get the Princess!"
Looks like Twi needs another new tiara.
Twilight is thinking "Oh, I'm mad now!"
Twilight's about to kick some major flanks. Also, you can tell that this is a big budget film by the improvement on the aura effects.
Is magic proof metal or Anti-Magic Metal?
"I think my bottom's on backward."
"We just got our cupcakes handed to us by the worst party crasher ever!"
"We gotta go back there and fight!"
"You saw the size of those goons!"
"You seriously wanna go back?!"
"Celestia told Luna to find the Queen of the... 'Hippos'."
"Luna can't, so I have to."
"I've heard they're surprisingly graceful for their size."
"Huh, but they're always hungry."
"They're somewhere south, past the Badlands."
"That means we'll have to... leave Equestria. Oh!"
"I understand you're scared, and nopony else has to go."
"But I have to find this Queen."
"She might be our only hope."
"Well, you're not getting all the glory."
"We're in this together."
"I am ready to save Equestria!"
Click this photo to see a determined Flutter-"Yay."
"We're all behind you, Twilight!"
"Let's go find this Hippo!"
There go the Mane 6...and Spike.
"...wasted on parties..."
"...when there are far greater uses."
The Storm King]
"Where am I supposed to be looking? I never understand how this spell works. Tempest!"
"Over here, Your Excellency."
"Oh, there you are."
"Here's the deal: I'm in the middle of a big re-brand here."
"The Storm King is tracking, well, as intensely intimidating, but you know what? I need to back it up. You know what I need to back it up with?"
"A storm! That would be great!"
"You promised me magic that could..."
"...control the elements, and right now..."
"...I'm holding a what? A branch. A twig"
"Uh, that would be the Staff of Sacanas, Your Excellency..."
"...and it will channel the magic of the four rulers of this land."
"You'll soon have the power of 100 armies."
"So, that would be a "yes" on you locking down..."
"...the four "Pegacornicuses" or whatever you call them?"
"Give me three days. I'll have everything ready for your arrival."
"...only I have the power to make you whole. Make this twig work..."
"...and you'll get your reward. Fail me, and your horn won't be the only thing that's broken."
"It won't be a problem."
"I'm gonna power up, crash and bash, and be the biggest, baddest bugaloo!"
"Sorry, bad spell service. You want me to call him back?"
"Do you have the princess?"
"It kind of seems like she... she might've, like, you know, got away... a little bit."
"I know you're disappointed..."
"...but I got one word for you."
Not a fan of spongecake, I see.
"I need all four for the Staff to work."
"Hey, I know."
"I want the Storm King to fix that crazy horn as badly as you do."
"It looks like a badly chipped tooth on the top of your head. And you know you don't look good in hats."
"That princess is not gonna keep me..."
"...from getting my horn back."
"Please. How far could one little pony get on her own?"
Jeez! Wonder what sort of critter that was...
Well, Tempest, they made it pretty darn far from the looks of it.
Notice that the vulture skull starts to disappear before it's even off-screen.
Uh, Pinkie... are you okay?
Looking very Ren & Stimpy-ish there, Spike.
"You know what they say: where there's a city..."
Main characters forget their mission cliche, as always.
