The main section of the guide includes the main 3D animated media, My Little Pony: A New Generation, My Little Pony: Make Your Mark and My Little Pony: Tell Your Tale; officially licensed comics by IDW Publishing; and My Little Pony: The Podcast. Most episodes are listed according to the order in which they were released, if the events that occur in them and the episode numbering don't indicate a different order. Books, video games, soundtracks and future content are listed separately.

Where content is officially available for free, YouTube and Apple Podcasts links are provided below. In other cases, a subscription or purchase is required. A New Generation can be streamed on Netflix, or bought or rented through video-on-demand services. Make Your Mark can be streamed on Netflix. Comics by IDW Publishing can be purchased through Amazon, Apple Books, Things From Another World, and other book and e-book stores.

Tell Your Tale episodes have been released in English on two different YouTube channels. Episodes 1–49 of season 1 were first released on My Little Pony Official, and later episodes were first released on the My Little Pony: Tell Your Tale channel. This guide links to My Little Pony Official for episodes 1–39 of season 1 only, avoiding videos that include compilations of other episodes after the credits. Episodes 1–56 of season 1 are also available on Netflix.

A New Generation, Make Your Mark and Tell Your Tale are each available in about 30 languages. Most dubs are officially available on Netflix or on separate YouTube channels. In several languages, official dubs of A New Generation are not available on Netflix and have only been shown on TV channels.

Comics that probably take place before Make Your Mark Chapter 4

This section does not use the ❗ symbol yet since it's currently unclear if any episodes will be relevant to a longer arc.

Soundtrack albums

The only major music streaming service that has all of the soundtrack albums available for free is Spotify (an account is required). YouTube Music has a free tier but does not have all of the albums, and its regional availability is more limited.

The song "Every New Day (Is the Best Day Ever)" hasn't been released on streaming services yet.

Other official media

In most cases, the stories in these media are standalone and haven't been acknowledged in other G5 media yet. This section does not include media without a story (such as the game My Little Pony World) or adaptations of previous media with no new content.

  • My Little Pony: Virtual Magic. The first 6 chapters of this VR book take place before My Little Pony: A New Generation, and the 18th and last chapter takes place immediately after it. The book is based on the film and chapters 7 to 17 are adapted directly from it. The book can't be purchased separately from the VR hardware, and for some reason it's written in present tense and has a bunch of typos. The product can be purchased on Amazon.
  • My Little Pony: A Maretime Bay Adventure. This video game takes place after My Little Pony: A New Generation, but its story was developed independently of that of My Little Pony: Make Your Mark, so it doesn't fit into the main timeline. The game is available on Windows through Steam and on game consoles. It was also purchasable for the now-defunct Google Stadia for exactly three months.
  • My Little Pony: Easter Egg Surprise!. This book takes place shortly after My Little Pony: A New Generation. The book is available as a paperback. In the compilation My Little Pony: Treasury of Stories, a modified version is included as Izzy's Big Surprise (with the references to Easter removed). The book is available as a hardcover.
  • Princess for a Day, a 32-minute audio-only "sleep story" narrated by Sofia Carson as Pipp. This is a tie-in to My Little Pony: A New Generation and takes place after the events of the film. It's not really a story and is more like an in-universe meditation aid, though it does contain some random bits of lore. You can listen to it on Calm (an account is required), or download the audio file of it as M4A or WAV.
  • I Can Read Comics Level 1 book series: My Little Pony: Sunny's Day, My Little Pony: Izzy Comes Home, My Little Pony: Sister Switch, and My Little Pony: Detective Hitch. These short graphic novels take place after My Little Pony: A New Generation, but probably before My Little Pony: Make Your Mark. The books are available as paperbacks and as e-books.
  • Sunny Starscout's Book of Adventure (My Little Pony Official Guide). This guidebook is presented as a journal from Sunny's perspective. It describes events depicted in My Little Pony: A New Generation and My Little Pony: Make Your Mark chapters 1 and 2, and also depicts Sunny's emotions, opinions and theories. The book is available as a paperback and as an e-book.
  • My Little Pony: Mane Merge. The events of this video game occur concurrently with My Little Pony: Make Your Mark. The game is exclusive to the subscription service Apple Arcade, and is available on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. The iPadOS version also became available for Apple Vision Pro in February 2024.
