Season one

Title sequence

  • 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)
  • When Twilight leaves the balloon, she looks nervous but when we zoom in on her, she is smiling. 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.   Heeeeyyyy, everybody! It's Meester Tweester!   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)

Multiple episodes

  • Frequently, crowd shots in the series contain duplicate ponies. This is first apparent in the scene where Nightmare Moon surveys the crowd in Friendship is Magic, part 1.
    • Actually, there were cloned background ponies in the Apple Family Reunion, which took place before NMM surveying the crowd.
  • The pink and lavender highlights on Twilight Sparkle's mane frequently swap sides. --Kinrah 13:50, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
  • Sometimes, Rarity has broken leg. And other ponies.
  • Sometimes Princess Celestia has pink eyes, and other times purple eyes.
  • Sweetie Belle without ear.
  • Often, Sweetie Belle's mane colours swap sides.
  • Whenever a mare is viewed from the back, her eyelashes are reversed
  • In one of her running animations, Applejack has no freckles. Her freckles are also missing in a number of additional scenes. -Mylittlewut 23:05, September 27, 2011 (UTC), -Kinrah 18:39, October 8, 2011 (UTC)
  • Twilight's door has been viewed in many different ways. Mylittlewut 23:05, September 27, 2011 (UTC)
  • The interior of Twilight's library often changes, especially the location of the balcony. Mayanighstar 15:58, October 17, 2011 (UTC)
  • At various points throughout the show, cutie marks can be seen on ponies' inner thighs. --Kinrah 12:14, October 4, 2011 (UTC)
  • Whenever Rainbow Dash is wet her tail is missing the green and yellow colors. 00:20, December 25, 2011 (UTC)
  • In multipul shots, the colors of Rainbow Dash's forelock are reversed.Starflight98 (talk) 19:56, April 3, 2014 (UTC)
  • In some scenes, the ponies' hooves are heard stomping on the ground, while in others they are not. Happy2432 23:07, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
    • Actually, that's more of a sound error than one with the animation. 17:21, August 16, 2012 (UTC)
  • Sometimes, when a character blinks, its eyelids are slightly darker colored than their real body color. Happy2432 21:12, February 10, 2012 (UTC)
  • Big Macintosh's cutie mark often has white sparkles, and they sometimes even disappear and reappear from one shot to another. Xeoxer 18:52, April 20, 2012 (UTC)
  • Frequently in episodes Fluttershy is missing her tail. --SableWolfAngel 4:45, April 21, 2012 (UTC)
  • Sometimes, the streak in Twilight's bangs turns to the same color as her hot pink horn aura. Fear Not! 16:30, May 5, 2012 (UTC)
  • Frequently the part of the ponies' manes that rest on the ponies' necks switch sides.A LOT. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)
    • Technically not an error - that's an effect called "Ambidextrous Sprite". Fear Not! (talk) 18:24, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
  • The rings on Zecora's foreleg swap legs occasionally. --Kinrah (talk) 21:28, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
  • Sometimes a pony's lashes turn upside down.
  • Whenever a mare is viewed from behind most times her upper lashes are missing.
  • Throught the series, minor errors occur with Luna's mane.
  • Sometimes, Princess Twilight's Alicorn wings can be seen as ordinary Pegasus wings in multiple episodes. PegasusParchment (talk) 19:05, January 29, 2014 (UTC)
  • Scootaloo has floaing pixels rigidly attaced to her mane in some episodes Endorb (talk) 05:20, July 17, 2014 (UTC)

Multiple episodes

pre-aired song "The Failure Song"

  • 0:51-0:53 mount of Twilight Sparkle's tail seem's a bit misplaced some times when she's turning. Sorry, I didn't want to interrupt our pleasant anticipation for this season. :-o --Bahnpirat 23:17, July 13, 2012 (UTC)
  • 0:11 Twilight Sparkle's cutie mark seems to not be there. Abbeybunny 23:20, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

pre-aired song "Ballad of the Crystal Ponies"

  • 0:20-0:24 Fluttershy's wing is on her flank.
  • 0:35 The mannequin does not have ears, but does have them when Rainbow Dash lifts the helmet.
  • 1:20-1:27 The book Twilight is levitating is glowing, but Twilight's horn is not.
  • 1:30-1:35 Now Twilight's horn is glowing, but the book is not.
  • 1:40 Where's Applejack
    • At the fake heart waiting to ask Twilight what it is. PegasusParchment (talk) 22:43, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

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.

The Crystal Empire - Part 1

  • The guard that reports to Princess Celestia has blue eyes like other generic guards, but his eyes change to yellow after he removes his helmet.
  • When we see Celestia at the beginning, her horn aura is yellow, like her cutie mark, but the letters have Twilight's aura color around them, making them look as if Celestia has multicolor aura colors.
  • Both book and horn glow during the last sung line of Ballad of the Crystal Ponies as opposed to teaser edition, but Twilight's horn still doesn't glow shortly before, while the book does.
  • Rainbow Dash's wing is upside-down when she's up the ladder in the library.
  • When Cadance faints, her horn disappears for a few frames.
  • Rarity's irises are not polygonal shaped when imagining herself as a crystal pony.
  • As Pinkie blows the flugelhorn to announce Twilight, Cadance, and Shining Armor at the start of the Crystal Fair, Shining Armor's horn does not have the black crystals on it until after Pinkie interrupts Twilight. AarrowOM (talk) 07:21, June 18, 2013 (UTC)
  • When Spike gets off the train at 8:07, he's carrying a whole pile of luggage for Rarity. At 8:52 though, he carries a single suitcase only. Seconds later, at 9:00, the rest of the luggage has returned. --LabFox (talk) 14:29, June 30, 2013 (UTC)

The Crystal Empire - Part 2

  • During the "Last Time on..." it shows Princess Luna in Princess Celestia's Place in the Castle. (Please Verify, I'm not 100% sure, I noticed this when it aired and no one added it yet.) Loper324 (talk) 07:49, November 29, 2012 (UTC)  (please state the duration so that we can find that error to verify)
    • No error here. During the episode recap, Luna only appears in these two shots, and they match up with Part 1. ImperfectXIII (talk) 04:16, May 14, 2013 (UTC)
  • 02:29 Cadence's horn doesn't glow when Twilight says "I will retreive the crystal heart.".
  • On most scenes of Twilight walking down the hidden staircase it is clear that she is not standing on the stairs (either hooves standing flat in midair or she's standing at a different angle to the top of the steps).
  • When the crystal ponies cheer for Rainbow Dash, Berry Punch is in the crowd.
    • Not an animation error, but more of an oversight by the animators. Moldy and the Ponds (talk) 06:10, November 12, 2012 (UTC)
  • When Rainbow Dash's introduction in the jousting demonstration, the lance is on her right side, but in her next shot, the lance switches on her left side then switch back to her right side after the joust. And disappear then reappears when she is talking to Fluttershy jinrex015
  • When Rainbow Dash says that she has a reputation to maintain, Fluttershy's ears disappear.
  • Whenever Celestia's face is seen at an angle so that you can partially see her second eye, said second eye is normally not straight and tends to slip closer to/further from her muzzle.
  • When Twilight looks to the top of the tower, the staircase seems to be free floating. This is fixed in the next scene.
  • When Rainbow dash is versus fluttershy after fluttershy gets knocked out berry punch appears in the crowd. 07:44, November 15, 2012 (UTC)
  • Shortly after Cadance catches Spike, the crystal heart doesn't have magic aura while her horn does. This is fixed in the next scene. Xeoxer (talk) 08:07, November 22, 2012 (UTC)
  • Before shining armor tossing cadance into the air,his horn are not covered with rock.Indrawanhalim (talk) 19:14, December 5, 2012 (UTC)indrawanhalim
  • 16:59 Fluttershy is not there.
  • 17:07 Fluttershy is also not there,while the other three are.
  • In the last line of The Success Song ("for...this!") everypony is singing, but Twilight's mouth doesn't move.
  • At 18:10 When Applejack is turned into a crystal pony, her tail is her not tied, but at 18:41 it is. --3JGYPTo.gif Seaswirl10 Talk  04:30, December 19, 2013 (UTC)
  • When Twilight and Rainbow are going down the stairs at the start, the entrance to the tunnel leading to the stadium is seen, yet at this point, there is no stadium. Glenn31 (talk) 19:17, May 4, 2014 (UTC)

Too Many Pinkie Pies

  • In the very beginning, Twillight's magic is detached for a brief moment (see picture below)
  • When Pinkie walks over to Rainbow Dash in her swim gear, Rainbow Dash is wingless.
  • When Pinkie Pie first sees Fluttershy having a tea party and the camera zooms in to look at Fluttershy, her back wing is reversed.
  • Pinkie Pie has six legs when she jumps up (06:48).
  • When the Pinkie Clones finish cloning many Clones, in one scene there are 14 clones, in the next there are 12.
  • After Pinkie Pie tells the clones to knock it off, the clones on the far left and right have no ears before they jump. When they jump, ears appear and clip into their mane. Their mane animation also has many errors when they jump.
  • When the clones attack the barn, Apple Fritter is helping raise it (12:50). She suddenly changes to another member of the Apple family (Marmalade) the next time she's on scene (13:02) She changes back to Apple Fritter when the Pinkie Clones run off.
  • When Big Mac blinks, (13:02) his eye is still visible under his eyelid.
  • When Pinkie crashes into Twilight at 00:18, first her arm goes through the outline of Twilight's neck, and then Twilight's neck is entirely detached from her body. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 06:43, November 21, 2012 (UTC)

One Bad Apple

  • There are 16 times where Babs Seed loses her freckles. Jenngra505 (talk) 19:21, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
  • In the song, the first time the line "Everywhere we turn, she's just a step ahead" is sung, Apple Bloom is singing but if you look real closely, you can see Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo mouthing it.
  • One of Babs Seed legs is missing in one a shot. (see picture --->)
    • No it did not, one of her legs was blocked, because of the front leg.
  • At 0:46, Appleblooms mouth is disjointed
  • Before Babs Seed leaves the train station Silverspoon does not have her pearl necklace on. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alexcia (talkcontribs)

Magic Duel

  • Ursa minor's defeat depicted by Trixie still features the old Season 1-era magic aura style and colors. Xeoxer (talk) 16:59, December 1, 2012 (UTC)
    • Well duh, Boast Busters was in season one. Not only is it therefore historically accurate, it would be stupid and pointless to change it. This is not an error, but common sense. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 05:13, December 2, 2012 (UTC)
      • Well, actually I think that aura change was out-of-universe thing just to make the show prettier, and we assume those auras always looked the new style-like. That error is either laziness or oversight. Xeoxer (talk) 16:06, December 4, 2012 (UTC)
        • This makes sence my friends, Trixie had a same color too instead of the different color, witch means they wern't using the era color right. Spaniel78CP (talk) 22:44, January 19, 2013 (UTC)
      • Actually, the new aura color of magic was present when Celestia and Luna defeated King Sombra 1000 years ago, so how is the new aura version before the old one?
  • Right after Twilight is banished (8:08), her shadow seems to be in the wrong position. As she starts running, it seems to catch up with her.
  • At Twilight's magic show towards the end of the episode (20:32) there is a blank pony frame on the farthest end of the left bleacher.
  • Eyes color of Sweetie Belle and Apple Bloom went wrong (17:27) and only Sweetie Belle (19:52) probably for Applejack, Rarity-like effect.
  • For the first half of the episode, the Alicorn Amulet's head faces to the left.  But in the second half, the head faces right.
  • At the end when Trixie is about to run off, her cutie mark is on her left inside thigh, and I think a little too much of her forehead is visible for her horn to be there also, but I haven't looked at other images for comparison. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 08:19, January 1, 2013 (UTC)
  • When Fluttershy is disguised as Rainbow Dash, she managed to get Rainbow Dash's eye model, which is impossible
    • Actually, it's not impossible; when Fluttershy's eyes are fully open, they're round like a normal pegsus.                                                                                                                                           

Sleepless in Ponyville

  • (1:17)Applebloom and the gameboard are off the doormat. When Scootaloo jumps from the ladder to the ground at 1:23, the horseshoe that Sweetie Belle just moved shifts to the right. Then at 1:28, it's back in its original spot. Plus, Applebloom and the gameboard have shifted onto the doormat. At 1:38, Applebloom is off the doormat and the gameboard is tilted at a different angle than before. Then at 2:00, the doormat and gameboard disappear! Seriously, what is it with Applebloom and her little game? Meester Tweester (talk) 07:32, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
  • When we see a 360° turn around Scootaloo, it seems she standing straight on two hooves. But before and after that, she is clearly grounded on her four hooves. Nice scene anyway. --Bahnpirat (talk) 23:12, December 7, 2012 (UTC)
  • Just before the start of Scootaloo's story, Rainbow Dash's wings disappear (12:27), then reappear after it (12:58). RedasFIRE (talk) 04:36, December 9, 2012 (UTC)
  • At the end of Rainbow's first story with the line "And then the olden pony asks..." The colors in her main change.
  • At 11:50, Scootaloo has no wings. Once she drops down a second later, her wings magically re-appear. Moldy and the Ponds (talk) 07:50, December 9, 2012 (UTC)
  • When Scootaloo says "happy friends" (and perhaps other times, I can't go frame by frame yet), her eye is layered on top of her mane. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 10:34, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
  • At 6:27 Scootaloo's right foreleg is detach Jinrex015
  • Constantly in the episode, Scootaloo's eyelashes frequently disappear and reappear. Abbeybunny (talk) 23:48, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
  • More of a writing error for a new writer, but Applejack feels cold in a mere (autumn?) night while the ponies go normally through snow in Hearth's Warming Eve and in the Arctic North. Xeoxer (talk) 13:08, January 24, 2013 (UTC)

Wonderbolts Academy

Incorrect blue-green eye color
  • At around 13:56 in the episode, Rainbow Dash has an incorrect eye color (it looks similar to Fluttershy's, but lighter). (Also, that should probably be uploaded and placed in a gallery at some point, but I figure this'll do for now) -- This is Jonny Manz, signing off! 02:46, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
  • This is more of a continuity error than it is an animation error. Rainbow Dash and Lightning Dust have been training with the same 6 Pegasi for the entire episode. When it cuts to some of them being stuck inside the clouds, the dark-colored Pegasus at the top isn't the same dark-colored Pegasus that they've been training with. --Who would win in a fight between you and yo mama? 02:58, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
  • Top part of Rainbow Dash's mane blinks out for one frame.--Arisaka (talk) 10:24, December 19, 2012 (UTC)
  • When Lightning Dust flaps her wings, part of her cutie mark disappears. --Who would win in a fight between you and yo mama? 02:58, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
  • The very tip of Lightning Dust's "lead pony" badge disappears into her uniform because it's on a different layer. --Who would win in a fight between you and yo mama? 02:58, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
  • Two at the bottom of Rainbow Dash's uniform don't quite line up properly. --Who would win in a fight between you and yo mama? 02:58, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
Odd stripey pattern on Spitfire's right eye
  • When Spitfire is talking to Rainbow Dash in her office, you can see an odd pattern in her right eye - being two lines of color different from the rest of her eyes. She also lacks eye lashes in her left eye unlike her right. -- Ozuzanna (Talk) 13:03, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
  • (For above) those are called 'highlights' not a weird pattern. They ween't properley masked in that scene
  • Two of the pieces of Applejack's plot are misaligned. --Who would win in a fight between you and yo mama? 02:58, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
  • Again? --Who would win in a fight between you and yo mama? 02:58, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
  • When Rainbow Dash walks up to Pinkie Pie after the tornado to see if she's alright, Pinkie is a blank flank. 09:43, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
    • What you're seeing in that shot is her inner flank. Cutie marks are on the outer flanks. jinrex015
  • Also, when Pinkie Pie is hanging onto RD, her tail is on her back. 09:43, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
  • At 18:05, when Applejack and Twilight are being lowered onto the ground, Applejack's cutie mark is missing. Leafheart123 (talk) 22:06, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
  • When Rainbow Dash springs the cloud to save her friends, her wonderbolts uniform is completely gone! jinrex015
  • Evidence that Cadet #2 was originally going to be Wild Fire can be found when Lightning Dust tries unsuccessfully to get a hoof-bump from Rainbow Dash.--Arisaka (talk) 11:33, December 20, 2012 (UTC)
    • One of the cutie marks on the scoreboard is a Flaming Tire (Wildfire) instead of a Sunflower (Cadet #2).--Arisaka (talk) 03:29, December 24, 2012 (UTC)
  • At 17:51 Rainbow Dash catches Twilight, Rarity, Applejack and Pinkie on a cloud even though only pegasus ponies can walk on cloud. DBD Abyss21:20, January 31, 2013 (UTC)
  • At the beginning of Test 5, the Dark Grey Academy Staff Member doesn't have wings.--Arisaka (talk) 01:15, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
  • When the balloon basket is sepperated from the balloon, AJ looses her hat, then they fall, and when the five friends hit the cloud made by Rainbow Dash the ornage pony has her hat back where it belongs. --Bahnpirat (talk) 20:09, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

Apple Family Reunion

  • (2:22)It seems that Applejack's forelegs are gone when Granny Smith says "You got yerself a deal."Meester Tweester (talk) 17:40, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
  • Babs Seed's eye color is the same as Apple Bloom's when they are passing a brush to clean wood. The eyelashes are Babs', but the eye color's is Apple Bloom's. This occurs in the song Raise This Barn, and stays until Babs Seed closes her eyes while singing.
  • An error occurs again with Babs Seed's eyes having no eyelashes, but the color of her eyes are the same as the one she normally has. This happens in the same song, Raise The Barn, when it almost ends. It stays until the picture is seen in the photo album Granny Smith keeps.
  • During the "Raise your Barn" song at 0:31 Meadow Song's eye is glitched.
  • During the "Raise the Barn" song, you see a group-shot of the Apple Family. But you also see Carrot Top, Bon Bon, and Cloudchaser.
Not to forget Helia, Shoeshine, Mr. Greenhooves and Cherry Berry
Also, some of the relatives that were seen are missing from the photo (e.g. the red earth pony with the green dress, a couple stallions that look similar to Big Mac).
  • When the family is gathering for the photo two fillies are unicorns, but they are earth before hand.
  • On the song, "Raise This Barn," Apple Bloom's eyes are seemingly different in two scenes of the song.
  • "Alula" is supposed to be an Earth pony for this episode, but she has her wings at one point when the hayride cart is pulling away. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 40px-Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 06:27, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
  • One line of the song (we raised this barn) is incorrect, it actually should be "we rose this barn".
    • "Raised" is correct when used with an object (the barn). Also, not an animation error. Randomwaffle23 (talk) 18:14, January 4, 2014 (UTC)
  • Granny Smith mentions she and Apple Rose were in a seven-legged race, but it actually should be a six-legged race (two hoofs are tied to you as if you have six legs).
    • Actually no. They all have eight legs so then if you take two away you'll get six, but if you tie it together as if you have one whole leg, and add it to the remaining six, you get 7.
    • In the hayride scene (last picture in gallery) that red Earth stallion's neck is way too long.             IoPOEp9.pngPonydreamer125 Talk21:51, April 26, 2014 (UTC)

Spike at Your Service

  • 00:09: The second book is a red book, where at 00:05 it was a purple book.
  • 4:35: When Spike is spilling the apples, he doesn't spill all of them, but at 4:41 he's seen cleaning up all the apples. And also, how in the hay did he get under the bucket? XD
  • 5:39: There's a sack of grain that's overflowing on the right, but at 5:46 it's gone.
  • at the start of the episode when twilight says "these books are gonna keep me busy for a while", her magic aura passes under the stack of books while she is to the right of them, this may be a layering mistake.
  • At some point at Carousel Boutique, Rarity's forelock is layered over her horn.

Keep Calm and Flutter On

  • When Discord is turned back into stone in "The Return of Harmony", his face is facing away, but when Princess Celestia delivers his statue to Ponyville, his face is forward.
    • Also the statue version is mirrored from the real Discord.
  • When Celestia opens the chest with her magic, part of her horn that is still seen on the screen is not glowing when aura appears around the chest. Xeoxer (talk) 09:49, October 26, 2013 (UTC)
  • At 4:59, the squirrel has a tatoo on his right arm, but on 6:54, it shifts to the other arm
  • When Fluttershy tries to use the stare on Discord (during the close ups of her) her wings are not flapping, but she is flying.
    • The shadow is also mirrored in the shot where he is alone in the house with Angel
  • During most of the episode, Dash's necklace faces left instead of right.
  • 5:21, 6:21 (when Discord is spinning), 9:33, 9:50 (Discord's clones): Discord has no mane.
  • 11:16 discord has a blue wing
  • 11:29-11:32 and 11:34-11:42: Instead of Fluttershy's house spinning, it appears as if it is going straight down.
  • 14:00: Rarity appears to have no eye lashes or outline of the eyes. Happens very quickly, and must be viewed frame by frame.
  • At the diner party, when the soup tureen squirts Twilight, she falls back and is eventually over backward with her ‘bottom’ in the air.  Yet her tail remains on the far side of her and not connected to where it should be.
  • 19:17: Whenever Discord leans back when skating behind Fluttershy, it appears as if his wings have detached for a moment.
  • When Discord blows raspberry to a discorded rabbit, his tongue is snake-like, but when he does it to Angel later on, his tongue is normal. Xeoxer (talk) 19:16, January 31, 2014 (UTC)

Just for Sidekicks

  • (3:08) When Spike is talking with Fluttershy at the beginning of the episode, he has a measuring cup on his head. When his face is reflected in Fluttershy's jewel, there's no measuring cup in his reflection. The cup reappears in the very next shot.
  • (11:10) Red animation guide arrows remain when Opalescence is playing with Gummy's tail.

  • At the Crystal Empire train station, as Spike chases Angel down the platform, Rarity (who is stood in between Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy in previous shots) inexplicably vanishes, despite still being there in the Games Ponies Play version of the scene. --Kinrah (talk) 19:37, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
  • When Fluttershy watches the pile of luggage fall off the cart at the train station and runs onboard the train, she is shown wearing her saddlebag.  Yet in the shot seconds prior when Spike throws his last gem at the cart, she is not wearing it.  In addition, when this same event occurs in 'Games Ponies Play', she is shown correctly without her saddlebag.

  • When the main characters are crashed all over the train car after the sudden stop, Fluttershy has Twilight's cutie mark. --Kinrah (talk) 18:48, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
  • Ms. Peachbottom shakes her head in surprise and something appeared. People who look closely see it and get incredibly startled.

    • In that scene, in one episode there was pony in foreground and in other episode was just empty seat. --Takerudavis (talk) 08:27, February 15, 2013 (UTC)

  • The gap between Twilight finishing her sentence and Spike's stomach growling is considerably shorter than in Just for Sidekicks; additionally, when the camera pans down, Angel is shown next to Spike, when he would have been either underneath Twilight's seat opposite, or outside getting the jewel. --Kinrah (talk) 11:52, February 10, 2013 (UTC)
    • In Just for Sidekicks, Spike's stomach growls twice and Applejack responds to second one, which suggests first growling was skipped in Games Ponies Play. In that case, Spike should be shown chewing onthe jewel that Angel brought back from the station. --Takerudavis (talk) 08:27, February 15, 2013 (UTC)

  • Things inside the Golden Oak Library's main floor (center table, unicycle-parts, brewing-apparatus) keep moving their positions or disappearing between the scenes --Adlerweb (talk) 00:54, March 1, 2014 (UTC)
  • ~5:01 - Sweetie Belle's tongue showing through her teeth --Adlerweb (talk) 00:54, March 1, 2014 (UTC)
  • When Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon are jumping in excitement at meeting Twilight, Silver Spoon's pearl necklace is missing, in the next shot after they have stopped jumping, it's back around her neck. PegasusParchment (talk) 19:21, April 24, 2014 (UTC)
  • ~19:50 - Scootaloo's tail and leg jumping from behind the scooter to it's front --Adlerweb (talk) 00:54, March 1, 2014 (UTC)
  • The brown spot around one of Pipsqueak's eyes keep switching sides. Xeoxer (talk) 12:30, May 4, 2014 (UTC)

It Ain't Easy Being Breezies

  • When Dr. Whooves and Rose pass by, one of the bushes is cut. —Preceding unsigned comment added by StrawberryFlight (talkcontribs)
    • Meaning what exactly? furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 02:29, March 2, 2014 (UTC)
  • (17:08-17:30) Rainbow Dash and the other two pegasi lack inner feathers in their slow flapping animations. The wing animation oddly has less frames per second than the standard amount and the line quality is constantly thick rather than diminishing at the body. --  Heeeeyyyy, everybody! It's Meester Tweester!   15:24, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
  • Flitter's cutie mark is very inconsistent throughout the episode, constantly switching between her normal dragonflies, a cloud with rain, Cloudchaser's/Cloud Kicker's sun and cloud and even nothing at all. PegasusParchment (talk) 18:15, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
  • When Fluttershy and Seabreeze talk near the end, Fluttershy's right wing is reversed when she is hovering in front of the tree branch. PegasusParchment (talk) 12:15, March 8, 2014 (UTC)
  • When Rarity took off her skirt, you can closely see alicorn wings on her. Abbeybunny (talk) 00:31, March 5, 2014 (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)

Somepony to Watch Over Me

  • The upper entrance door half has bubble-protected lower edge, but the bubble disappears when the camera focuses on Applejack walking in. Xeoxer (talk) 19:35, March 8, 2014 (UTC)
  • At 20:14 and 21:28, between the two mares at the table, there's a disembodied hoof appearing to belong to nopony. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 20:47, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
  • At 12:31 Scootalo has blue eyes instead of purple.
  • The zip on AJs backpack keeps switching sides --Adlerweb (talk) 20:20, March 19, 2014 (UTC)
  • At ~03:00 the carts seem to stand on a free area of the farm, you see only grass and hills in the background. Later shots shows them right besides several buildings --Adlerweb (talk) 20:20, March 19, 2014 (UTC)

Maud Pie

  • At the beginning when Pinkie throws Fluttershy and Rarity into the shop, you hear Fluttershy scream with Rarity's voice and Rarity scream with Fluttershy's voice. -user:Kihano101 8:11, May 11, 2014 (UTC-5:00)
  • Twilight's wings are missing again at the beginning of act one and disappear after she lands in the pile of rocks. - Jasonbres (talk) 15:24, March 15, 2014 (UTC)
  • Pinkie’s iris disappears when Rarity is talking about the dishtowel.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Nicolas M. (talkcontribs) 22:41, March 20, 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)

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)
  • At 21:00, Luna has double wings. Xeoxer (talk) 19:57, March 22, 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). furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.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)
  • Nicole Oliver is credited as Princess Celestia, but Celestia neither appeared nor spoke. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 20:06, March 22, 2014 (UTC)
  • As was Andrea Libman for Pinkie Pie, even though Pinkie appeared in this episode but did not speak and Tabitha for Granny Smith for the same reason. - Jasonbres (talk) 22:16, March 22, 2014 (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)
    • This is an animation error? (wat) furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 15:24, April 6, 2014 (UTC)
      • It's a story error, I'm not sure where to put this so I put it here. --Mega Sean 45 (talk) 18:46, April 6, 2014 (UTC)

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)

Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3

At some point during the beginning, when RD is lying on a cloud, her wings are missing FlutterRose (talk) 20:17, April 6, 2014 (UTC)

  • During Twilight's line "headed by General Firefly", her mouth doesn't move. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 14:55, April 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • During the song by Pinkie Pie, rapper Doctor Whooves has a plaster on his muzzle, which sometimes disappears in some shots. PegasusParchment (talk) 09:37, April 5, 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. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 00:18, April 22, 2014 (UTC)
  • Lots of minor errors in the final scene of the Traders Exchange with shadows missing and Carrot Top and a stallion positioned on top of another pony.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  12:50, April 23, 2014 (UTC)
  • Throught the episode, the Daring Do collector's eyelashes change frequently. Sometimes, she has three eyelashes, sometimes, she has a thick single eyelash. -AnimationFan15 (talk) 5:21, May 16, 2014 (UTC)

Inspiration Manifestation

  • Robins don't really use birdhouses. - Jasonbres (talk) 23:13, April 26, 2014 (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. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.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). furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.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)
      • 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. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 22:26, May 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • 18:32 the result of thoughtless copying cutiemarks. Or two identical marks at the pony? | Hedgeg (talk) 21:16, June 30, 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

  • During the top-down perspective in the scene where Celestia, Luna, and Cadance transfer their magic to Twilight, Luna and Cadance share Celestia's wing design. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 00:30, May 16, 2014 (UTC)
    • In the same scene, the purple on Cadence's wings are gone. —Preceding unsigned comment added by AnimationFan15 (talkcontribs)
  • Photo Finish is listed in the credits even though she didn't have any speaking lines. - Jasonbres (talk) 15:09, May 10, 2014 (UTC)
  • 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)
  • Rarity's jaw disappears when she looks at Twilight's new castle. JackdaMan171 (talk) 12:42, May 14, 2014 (UTC)
  • The keyhole that Twilight puts her key into is different each time it appears. The first time the top is rectangular, then when she holds out Discord's medallion it is triangular, and when she finally inserts the key it is oval. Tensaided (talk) 16:59, May 23, 2014 (UTC)Tensaided
