Other musical elements
In addition to background music, several musical pieces have been used in the show that are not counted as full songs, according to "The Musical Pony" complete song lyrics in Little, Brown's official My Little Pony Friendship is Magic guidebook My Little Pony: The Elements of Harmony. These include:
- Junior Speedsters Chant, sung by Rainbow Dash and Gilda in Griffon the Brush Off
- Sweetie Belle's unfinished talent show song lines in The Show Stoppers
- The Nightmare Night greeting used in Luna Eclipsed
- Sweetie Belle's campfire song in Sleepless in Ponyville, which is based on "99 Bottles of Beer"
- Spike's dragon song in Spike at Your Service
- Spike's jewel cake song in Just for Sidekicks
- The main six's Crystal Empire cheer in Games Ponies Play
Junior Speedsters Chant and the Crystal Empire cheer both have backing music.
The same closing theme is played over the credits of every episode except The Return of Harmony Part 2, A Friend in Deed, A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2, and Magical Mystery Cure, all of which have unique themes (the part 2 themes are very similar).
