Report
"Get your muzzle out of those books and make some friends!" That's what Princess Celestia tells Twilight Sparkle. She may be the smartest unicorn in Equestria, but Twilight Sparkle gets an "incomplete" in friendship. There's more to life than learning magic, after all -- so she goes to Ponyville on a mission to make friends. There she meets five special ponies who take her on exciting adventures and teach her the most powerful magic of all ... the magic of friendship!

Yes, but never in a hardcore manner, and especially not explicitly in early seasons: remember that this show is meant to be appropriate for young children. Applejack's parents died around the time her little sister was born, which leads to drama with them. Halfway through the show, Diamond Tiara's mother is shown to be neglectful. The only time that child-abandonment is even discussed is in the final season, we learn that Scootaloo's parents left her in Ponyville while traveling the world.

Diamond Tiara's mom forced her to be perfect, which is why she acts like a bully.

Okay abuser is probably the wrong word here but this is a series that’s pretty infamous for having villains forgiven even for stuff as despicable as starting a brainwashing cult. Fortunately there isn’t as much of this in later seasons

Diamond Tiara, a child, is seen as a bully through the first 5 seasons, including being ableist towards another child. This is revealed to be due to her mother's emotional abuse. However, in season 5 she stands up to her mother and is redeemed and remains that way for the rest of the show.

The lesson for season 5 episode 5, “Tanks for The Memories,” deals with learning how to say goodbye and cope with loss. Tank’s hibernation can be seen as a metaphor for death as Rainbow Dash goes through the 5 stages of loss throughout the episode. Tank is perfectly fine though and he appears in later episodes.

Additionally, in “She Talks to Angel”, Fluttershy forces meat eating animals to be vegetarian while staying at her animal sanctuary despite being seen feeding animals meat in the past. It’s likely she didn’t want the various prey animals at her sanctuary to get hurt while staying there, but it still seemed very iffy as meat eating animals being vegetarian can kill them. However all other cases of animal abuse are clearly shown to be in the wrong.

The Mane 6’s pets have likely died between the events of the main finale and the epilogue. This is due to them being old by the ending. Though Tank is likely still alive, as tortoises can live for over a hundred years… he might even outlive Dashie! It’s not directly stated if they did or didn’t die though, however it is implied.

In Spike at Your Service there’s a scene where Spike makes a giant rock tower and Rainbow Dash knocks it over. There’s a joke where it looks like Spike got crushed by one of the rocks that fell, but he later climbs up on top of the rock revealing he was fine. Nobody ever gets crushed by falling objects, but they do sometimes get stuck under them and are rescued later.

When characters make promises, they sometimes recite the rhyme "cross my heart and hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye". Twilight accidentally pokes herself in the eye in "Green Isn't Your Color" while making a Pinkie Promise. Granny Smith is poked in the eye with a megaphone in "Sisterhooves Social". Twilight looks directly at the sun through a telescope in "It's About Time" and has to wear an eyepatch for the rest of the episode.

In Dragon Quest, an egg is taken from a Phoenix family’s nest after the phoenixes are scared away and the egg falls, so Spike and Twilight take it home with them to care for. This can be compared to abducting, as his parents are still okay. He’s reunited with them in a later episode.

I'm going to say no, but it's unclear. The character Derpy Hooves is implied to be disabled and from what I can find, her voice actress is able bodied if that counts. But there is no live action depictions of able bodied actors or actresses portraying disabled characters, because it's an animated show.

The closest thing to this ever happening is in The Last Roundup when they’re on a train and Pinkie has her legs crossed and is shaking because she needs to pee, and once she arrives at their destination she goes into an outhouse to use the bathroom. She doesn’t pee herself and her peeing isn’t seen on screen.

No, but early on a character with a very distinct voice (that the voice actor stated was based on a neighbor's autistic son) is played for laughs and depicted as clumsy. There was a massive controversy about this character, whose name is 'Derpy', which is construed by some as an ableist slur.

Yes, but they are generally brief and/or mild. Some magic spells produce short bright flashes. There are parties with bright lights. There are flashes from photographers' cameras. There are fireworks. Unusual visual effects used during musical sequences can include mild flashing.

An unusually large pony appears briefly as part of a throwaway gag. Her appearance is clearly meant to be comical, but her weight is not the subject of the joke.

Yes, the episode "Brotherhooves Social" has Big Mac disguise himself as a mare to compete in the Sisterhooves Social. Several transphobic tropes ensue. Several characters call Big Mac a stallion in a way that can absolutely be triggering to trans women.

The coat colors of the ponies vary greatly between all colors. The division between white and black skin does not occur in the entire series and is not addressed.

The show itself has no antisemitism, but the fandom does. Specifically, there's a fan character named Aryanne, whose entire gimmick is being a Nazi (she has a white coat, blonde hair, blue eyes, and a swastika inside of a heart as a cutie mark) with a sizable amount of fanart of her likeness. Because of this, I'd suggest exercising caution and using filters if you decide to consume fanmade content, (if you decide to at all).

There is an episode where Big Macintosh dresses up in a dress and poses as Apple Bloom’s sister so he can compete in the “sisterhooves social” with her. Everypony sees through his disguise almost immediately.

One episode features an incredibly stereotypical depiction of Native Americans and could be argued to be apologism for American colonization.

Infamously, there is an episode ("Over a Barrel", if I recall correctly), where the conflict between Native Americans and European settlers is basically wildly misrepresented in metaphor.

King Sombra gets destroyed twice, and creators of the show have said he's bisexual; however, his sexuality is never brought up in the show.

Clarifying what was said in the other comment; Fluttershy and Discord have a large age gap, but they have a platonic friendship with no romantic involvement.

Not canonically, no, but the fandom is infamous for sexual content. Tread carefully.

Granted there doesn’t seem to be an equivalent of Santa Claus for Hearth’s Warming Eve. And even then magic is a fact of life in this show (hence the title) so it’s pretty literal

Two parade floats crash in the episode "One Bad Apple". Many go-karts crash in "The Cart Before The Ponies". Nobody is seriously injured in either case, although the vehicles are destroyed.

Sombra dies rather violently, and so do evil counterparts of the Mane 6, but being for people over 5 the show itself is not a gorefest.

Pinkie Pie's Party Cannon has been weaponized on occasion, such as in "A Canterlot Wedding Part 2".
