What are all of your favorite MLP references to other media, pop culture, etc.?

 

 

Some of my favorites include a reference to Star Wars, as well as two references to The Shining:

When Scootaloo said that Babs Seed "went to the dark side" after joining Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon. That's my favorite reference to Star Wars.

Excellent choices, everypony! I love all those references, too! (MGS is one of my favorite games, of all time.)

 

I also loved this "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" reference in the Lost Treasure of Griffonstone:

 

The obvious James Bond reference:

 

And of course, the Music Man (PMV version):

the Slenderman reference in 'Pinkie Apple Pie'.

I wonder: How did anyone find him, in the first place? He appears in very few frames, and the bush so vaguely resembles him, that I don't think I would have ever found him myself, if my life depended on it.

Either the Game of Thrones reference or Discord (just Discord, I kind of went from 'why am I watching this?" to "Hang on, is that John De Lancie? Congratulations Pony, you've got me interested now").

The movie had quite a few!

 

A certain game:

Yet another Transformers sound effect (at the beginning):

Oh my:

 

And maybe this wasn't intentional, but Fluttershy's "A g-g-g-g-ghost town?" sure sounded like a Scooby Doo shoutout.

Not a comprehensive list by any means, just some of the ones that grabbed me. Listen close and you might find something like this [non-spoiler]:

Q is awesome, isn't he? 

Strangely enough, it was the reverse for me: Discord got me into Star Trek.

This one pretty much summarizes my favorite on-going reference:

 

 

Haven't finished the Tenth Doctor, yet, but would love to, when I have time.
