Internet memes are ideas that result in frequently-copied images, videos, concepts and catchphrases adopted by a specific subculture. Once My Little Pony Friendship is Magic aired and grew in popularity, memes developed and propagated by the fanbase quickly started following.

General memes

  • Ponies in socks -- One of the first and most popular memes, started by fan artist Egophiliac
    • Ponies in sweaters/ ponies in scarfs -- Two newer variations
  • Rule 63/Colt versions/Genderbenders -- Crossed-gender versions of the characters; such as Dusk Shine as Twilight, Bubble Berry as Pinkie, and even an Eris as Discord
  • Fluffy Ponies -- The most notable of whom is Fluffle Puff
  • Baby ponies -- Where adult characters from the show are drawn as foals.
  • [X] IS BEST PONY -- Where [X] represents a character from the show, not limited to ponies.
  • Pony Shrug -- Where the ponies are seen shrugging. The original picture, of Pinkie Pie shrugging, was drawn by MegaSweet, in black and white; however, it is unknown who colored it in originally.[1] It has since been edited to depict different ponies.
  • Brohoof-similar to the "Like" function on several sites such as Facebook.
  • Ponylicious - Tara Strong posted a tweet that said, "I'm the T to the W-I, L-I-G-H-T, and ain't no other pony troll it down like me. I'm Twilightlicious." She later posted a sound byte of her rapping that in character as Twilight, which was later set to animation by BlackGryph0n, who later made further Ponylicious animations with the rest of the Mane Six (save Rarity), which was imitated by others. This meme was referenced by Apple Bloom in Pinkie Apple Pie.

Memes about ponies that appear in the show

Mane six memes

Memes associated with Applejack

  • Applejack is best background pony - a joke that Applejack is a background pony, due to the relative lack of importance to her roles in season two (particularly The Last Roundup, an Applejack-centric episode, is more fondly remembered by the fandom for being the first official speaking role of Derpy Hooves).[citation needed]
  • Applejack is incestual - Often, due to being depicted with a southern accent,[dubious – discuss] Applejack is depicted as having entered into an incestual relationship with Big Macintosh.
  • Applejack is bad at math - Related to her "fancy mathematics" line to Big Macintosh in Applebuck Season.
  • More Apple Fwitters?/Babyjack - In Apple Family Reunion, there's a flashback of Applejack as a baby, who had "the appetite of a full-grown stallion", when she eats up a lot of apple fritters and then asks for more. Fans thought this was so cute, they decided to make this moment a success.

Other Friendship is Magic fandom memes

Memes associated with Lauren Faust

  • Done with a many different ponies, but most notably Lauren's OC, fans have frequently replaced certain parts of R34 pony art with Subway sandwiches. Her OC has ascended by this and become a sort of mascot of the meme and has occasionally been portrayed in fan art with Subway other than just R34.
  • A comic of a human Lauren Faust at a laptop, reacting to something - This has been manipulated in a many different ways.

Misc

  • Dark matter ponies - originated with the My Little Pony Physics Presentation, when the man giving it asserted that in order for the butterflies to truly arrest Fluttershy's downward movement as they were depicted as doing in The Cutie Mark Chronicles, the butterflies would need to be made up of dark matter to have a realistic acceleration.
  • Gak - During the commercial breaks for the episode season premiere there was an advertisement which was aired several times on The Hub for a product called Gak (an old Nickelodeon product notorious for its elastic properties and "fart" sounds). During one commercial break, four unique commercial breaks for the product were aired in a row.[2][3] On the same day that the episode aired, a significant amount of Gak related pony fan labor was released. Some people have created videos where select dialog from the show is replaced with some excerpts from the Gak ads,[4][5] whereas others were animated from scratch.[6] Furthermore, many artists have created artwork where ponies discover Gak,[7][8][9][10][11] purchase Gak,[12][13] or are made of Gak.[14][15][16][17][18][19] Gak is sometimes its own pony.[20][21] Often, the ponies get stuck in Gak.[22][23][24][25] The deviantArt group MyLittleGak was established the same day the episode aired. Said group prepared their NSFW folder in advance. There is even an Ask Pony blog for Gak called Ask Gak Pony which was featured on Equestria Daily.[26] Music was not left out of the equation, as there are several fan made songs by brony musicians relating to Gak.[27][28][29][30] Gak is often portrayed as having a mind of its own, and attacks the ponies. This in turn sprouted the idea that Gak is related to Smooze, a G1 pony villain that was a sentient flood of ooze.[31][32][33]
