There are episodes of the series I feel gets a bad reception from the online community. As a fan of the fourth iteration of My Little Pony, I can see where the reception comes.

Share and read the thoughts of a thousand fans or add your own episodes you think doesn't deserve the hate.

The Top Ten

1 The Mysterious Mare Do Well

I can't BELIEVE the entire fandom decried this episode as being the worst of the entire series. For anyone who watches this episode without context, I can understand that! You don't know much about the characters and how trusting they are to one another. But for the hardcore fanbase to turn around and say it as if past episodes didn't exist really boils my blood!

For anyone outside the fandom who never saw this episode, allow me to elaborate. The episode is about a showboating Rainbow Dash going through a hero's journey. The amount of praise she got for her feats of heroism caused her to lose sight of her actions. She became too boastful and sloppy, putting off saving lives to foster her ego. The moral and the character are the highlight of the episode. Rainbow Dash was the perfect character to focus on, making the moral much more powerful when she finally grew as a person... err, pony.

I won't say this is a bad episode, but the criticisms this episode gets is even ...more - Thifer20

It was one of the many episodes that brought out Dash's bratty qualities - TwilightKitsune

2 Filli Vanilli
3 Putting Your Hoof Down
4 Appleoosa's Most Wanted

Anybody can says this episode is predictable, but we don't explain why. Some of the jokes were good, the highlight being Braeburn. Troubleshoes was actually a decently portrayed misunderstood character, but the adults... hiss! Yeah, I have a bad blood against drama. More specifically, miscommunication and misinterpretation. - Thifer20
