- The opening includes an extreme long shot of Ponyville's town square. The buildings, most noticeably the spa and the joke shop, are in different places around the square than they are in long shots in the episodes. --Kinrah 09:51, September 1, 2011 (UTC)
- Twilight uses a hot air balloon to get to Ponyville, but in the first episode she uses a chariot. Fear Not! 21:13, February 15, 2012 (UTC)

- At the point in the theme that focuses on Rainbow Dash (Big Adventure!), there is a frame in which her feathers are not attached to her wings. --Jorlem 21:08, September 25, 2011 (UTC) This error is not fixed in the new version of the 2nd season. --Bahnpirat 22:47, October 15, 2011 (UTC) I wouldn't be surprised if this was deliberate. Often in animation some parts of a character are left behind a little bit to emphasise the speed at which they're moving. This would make sense especially with RD and her wings.
- A slowed down and looped gif of this over here. 15:09, August 4, 2013 (UTC)
- Twilight still teleports in a white poof which is the old season 1-era magic aura style (while Celestia's aura is accommodated for new style). In season 2 and 3 episodes, her magic poof actually changed from white to purple. Xeoxer (talk) 18:06, February 9, 2013 (UTC)

- At various points throughout the show, cutie marks can be seen on ponies' inner thighs. --Kinrah 12:14, October 4, 2011 (UTC)

- In multiple shots, the colors of Rainbow Dash's forelock are reversed.Starflight98 (talk) 19:56, April 3, 2014 (UTC)

- Scootaloo has floaing pixels rigidly attaced to her mane in some episodes Endorb (talk) 05:20, July 17, 2014 (UTC)
- Sometimes, items leaving the scene dissapear from it too quickly, as when it is slowed down, one frame the item is partially in frame, and the exact next it is gone. This is improper transition. SquiddyFIMOrca (talk) 22:49, February 26, 2015 (UTC)
I'll just leave this here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJO76DHkc2Y

This is a correction: the next shot shows us she is looking at the crystal heart (which is on the other side of the path) at 1:40 she must of been over there.
- While Twilight is reading the book near the end she's reading right to left, not left to right.
- Part of Twilight's mane turns yellow at times, then turns back to its normal navy blue. --Catluvr2 (talk) 00:50, February 3, 2014 (UTC)
