** Genie bottles work this way in ''Ask Generous Genie Rarity''. It's very likely that the genie will get trapped in there for perhaps centuries at a time (they're stuck in their bottles between masters), so to counter this, the bottle speeds up perception of time.

** Twilight from the Twixie Genies spent time as one of these before the comic began, mostly due to isolation. Her first appearance (in a pre-blog comic) has her twisting Trixie's three wishes so that a wish to know everything about magic, ever turned her into a book called ''Everything About Magic, Ever'', her wish to become the biggest star in Equestria turned her into Polaris, and her wish to become powerful like Twilight [[BecomingTheGenie turns her into a genie]].


Added DiffLines:

** Genies from the Twixie Genies universe are ponies who have ([[BalefulPolymorph sometimes inadvertently]]) traded their freedom for immortality and power. They have to grant every wish they hear (but they can twist it to their heart's content) and do not have hindquarters- their back halves are instead misty tails that are always connected to their bottles (which are BiggerOnTheInside and serve as the genie's living quarters).
** Genies from ''Ask Generous Genie Rarity'' (NSFW) are magical creatures created when a pony is pulled into a genie bottle or wishes to become a genie themselves. They are considered extremely dangerous because (in Celestia's experience, at least) if not stopped, they will grant wishes to turn people into genies until absolutely everyone is a genie like them. They are also mentally manipulated by their bottle (again, according to Celestia- Rarity herself insists that it's because being a genie fits quite well with her Element of Generosity) into considering being a genie the best thing ever. Genie bottles, aside from MoreThanMindControl, have YearOutsideHourInside properties (helps pass the time when the genie is stuck there), and inside a bottle, a genie's magic has only the limit that they ''cannot'' affect things outside the bottle.

** [[spoiler:the Sultan]] eventually becomes this for Ask Twixie Genies.



** Played straight in ''Ask Twixie Genies'' with [[spoiler:Zephyr Dimaond, an Air Djinn who hates his fellow Djinni and Genies for how they turned Saddle Arabia into a barren wasteland while fighting its evil sultan.]]



* ChekhovsGun: In ''Ask Twixie Genies'', it's mentioned that [[spoiler:Genies aren't protected by the same rules as mortals are in regard to their wishes]]. While this is originally used by [[spoiler:[[BigBad the Sultan]] to kill Twilight, [[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/90477485127 Zephyr]] exploits it to bring her BackFromTheDead after Trixie kills the Sultan.]]

** ''Ask Twixie Genies'' is this compared to the other prominent genie blog, ''Ask Genie Twilight''. Unlike ''Genie Twilight'', which is a lighthearted SliceOfLife blog, ''Twixie Genies'' is a {{Deconstruction}} of the idea of becoming a genie. Twilight's transformation meant she was completely bound to her bottle, causing her to go half-mad with grief and loneliness. As a result, she became an impish, manipulative, selfish trickster who only started to return to true sanity with the help of Trixie and, oddly enough, the Twilight from ''Genie Twilight''. [[spoiler:Also, Twilight's hamfisted decision to forcefully isolate herself from her friends and family for months ends up having [[WhatTheHellHero realistic consequences]].]]



* DoNotTauntCthulhu: [[spoiler: [[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/86931901442 The sultan]] from Ask Twixie Genies tried to imprison ''all'' the Djinn, good ''and'' evil. This ended up enraging the Djinn race to the point that they laid waste to his kingdom, ultimately taking all his subjects to another land and it's implied they turned him into SealedEvilInACan. To be fair, they ''did'' beseech him to stop ''several'' times and he was simply too obsessed to do so.]]



* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: [[spoiler:Twilight]] in ''Ask Twixie Genies'' [[spoiler:is graphically disintegrated into powder, all while desperately attempting to crawl to Trixie just to hold her one last time.]]
** [[spoiler:[[BigBad The Sultan's]] death]] from the same blog may also count, though not to the same degree. [[spoiler:[[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/90167594657 Trixie more or less incinerate him.]]]]



* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:The Sultan]] from Ask Twixie Genies. Not only is he [[spoiler:immune to Genie Magic completely]], but the only option the heroes have when he shows up is ''run''. As if that wasn't enough, he even [[spoiler:seemingly ''kills'' [[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/89778268262 Twilight by catching one of her wishes and throwing it back at her.]]]]



* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:The Sultan]] on Ask Twixie Genies [[spoiler:kills Twilight by reflecting the wish she tried using on him back at her.]] He's then hit with this in return when [[spoiler:the resulting rage this causes Trixie results in [[LimitBreak her bottle breaking]], allowing her to blast him to nothing.]] Could count as a double dose, considering [[spoiler:Trixie was presumably able to kill him for the same reason he could kill Twilight, namely that immortals aren't protected by Genie Rules, something she wouldn't have known if he hadn't revealed it.]]



** {{Deconstructed|Trope}} in the "Twixie Genies" blog. There, Twilight is a genie who purposefully misinterperets Trixie's wishes until the latter wishes to be powerful "like her", which gets Trixie turned into a genie herself. After several entries worth of Twilight teasing and [[FoeYay flirting]] with Trixie, a few users ask how Twilight became a genie and why she acts the way she does, which Trixie answers: [[spoiler:Twilight had her own encounter with a JackassGenie who tricked her into becoming a genie. When Trixie happened upon her bottle, Twilight turned her into a genie so she wouldn't have to be alone anymore. Together they started the blog so Twilight could get back in contact with her friends and family]].



** [[spoiler:[[BigBad The Sultan]]]] from Ask Twixie Genies. Not only was [[spoiler:he the one who turned Twilight into a Genie in the first place]], anything involving him is much more serious than the rest of the largely comedy and romance based story the blog normally tells and he proves to be a HeroKiller level threat upon showing up. [[spoiler:He even seemingly ''kills'' [[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/89778268262 Twilight]] by reflecting her attack back at her.]]]] Plus, [[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/89584779317 just look at him!]]



* KnightTemplar: [[spoiler:[[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/86931901442 The sultan]]]] from Ask Twixie Genies. [[spoiler:While he wanted to protect his subjects from the evil members of the djinn race, he tried to imprison them ''all'', good ''and'' evil. [[DoNotTauntCthulhu This did not end well.]]]]



** Remember how Twilight from Ask Twixie Genies [[spoiler:[[http://fav.me/d5snbef became a Genie in the first place]]]]? It turns out that [[spoiler:[[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/88781996552/link-to-original-posts in doing so she accidentally unleashed]] [[SealedEvilInACan an ancient evil sultan from his prison.]]]]
*** Also, [[spoiler:it turns out that turning an already power mad, genocidal dictator with delusions of godhood and dreams of TakingOverTheWorld into a powerful ice monster may ''not'' have been the best idea for a punishment.]]



** [[spoiler:[[BigBad The Sultan]]]] in ''Ask Twixie Genies'' has [[VillainousBreakdown a big one]] when [[spoiler:[[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/90044483032 [[UnstoppableRage Trixie is so enraged]] by his seemingly murdering Twilight that [[LimitBreak her lamp shatters]].]] Bonus points because [[spoiler:he see the Djinn that originally imprisoned him superimposed over her.]]



** In ''Ask Twixie Genies'', there are two types of genies, Genies and Djinn. Djinn are immortal, can move about as they please, have powerful ties to one of the four elements, but they cannot grant wishes and while they are immortal, [[spoiler:Zephyr Diamond]] shows that they ''do'' begin to age and lose some of their power over time. Genies, by contrast, are ''much'' more powerful and can grant wishes, but they are completely bound to their bottle, unable to move more then a few feet away from it.



** [[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/ Twixie Genies]] have the entity that Twilight was tricked into releasing that turned her into a Genie in the first place. It turns out [[spoiler:to be an ancient sultan imprisoned by the Djinn for his prejudice actions in imprisoning ''all'' Djinn [[KnightTemplar good and evil.]]]]



* UnstoppableRage: [[spoiler:[[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/90044483032 Trixie]]]] on 'Ask Twixie Genies' goes into this after [[spoiler:the Sultan seemingly kills Twilight, who she discovers was about to propose to her. Her anger is such that she ''[[LimitBreak shatters her lamp]]'' and frees herself. She then proceeds to more or less ''incinerate'' the Sultan.]]



* WhamShot: Ask Twixie Genies has an example with [[spoiler:[[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/90044483032 Trixie's lamp shattering]] [[LimitBreak in response to her]] [[UnstoppableRage rage at]] [[BigBad the Sultan]] seemingly murdering Twilight. Note, a Genie being freed is supposed to be ''impossible''.]]



* WhatTheHellHero: Genie Twilight [[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/45790157595 gives]] [[http://i-dream-of-twilight-sparkle.tumblr.com/post/45841056929 one]] [[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/46255212094 to the Twixie Genies]] over their choice of going into a self imposed exile to avoid someone with evil intentions finding them, pointing out that if that happened, they could just twist the wishes to avoid them causing harm, and more importantly for not thinking how much this choice would hurt their ''friends''. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone They realize she's right]] and have her blow down the wall keeping ponies from reaching them so they can set things right.
*** [[http://asktwixiegenies.tumblr.com/post/51729764292 Later]], Applejack and Rainbow Dash are clearly ticked with Twilight for not thinking about contacting them this whole time. [[spoiler:Rainbow Dash, who thought this was because Twilight stopped caring about them, relents when Twilight explains she was [[GoMadFromTheIsolation forced into a life of maddening exile]] with little hope of ever seeing them again, but Applejack took it much harder because Twilight thought a single letter telling them she was okay would be enough to apologize for hurting them]].

* [[http://askgamingprincessluna.tumblr.com/ Ask Gaming Princess Luna]] Launched in January 2014 by John Joseco, the insanely prolific artist better known for his rather infamous (now shuttered) blog, ''Ask Princess Molestia''. It continues the story of the console-obsessed Princess of the Night which had already begun to take up a large chunk of the original blog as she plays games, messes with royal guards, and tries to keep Derpy from screwing everything up. Molestia herself is conspicuously absent.
