** Two by the same author but taking place in different continuities--[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6833690/1/Taste-the-Rainbow "Taste the Rainbow"]] has the events of ''Cupcakes'' being little more than an illusion Trixie trapped Rainbow Dash in, but Rainbow Dash is understandably shaken by it and tries to do some baking with Pinkie Pie to assure herself that nothing is wrong. [[HilarityEnsues It goes about as well as you'd expect]]. The second is [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6836403/1/Sewing-the-Impossible "Sewing the Impossible"]], in which Rainbow Dash survived her torture but was horribly mangled in the process and Rarity takes it upon herself to save her the only way she knows how: sewing her back together. It sounds gruesome and morbid...[[spoiler:but it has a happy ending]].

** And for her detractors I.E haters of a certain blue pegasus, Rainbow Dash herself could qualify too. Though she's more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

* AnimatedAdaptation: There are many of these on Website/YouTube and Website/{{Newgrounds}}. See TheMusical below for one of them. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43AuJjuxqAw This one]] is rather popular, if only because it's rumored to have been made by a member of the production staff.

An alleged (former) Creator/{{Hasbro}} animator worked on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43AuJjuxqAw this]] beauty in his spare time. If you need a version to giggle with the ghosties with, this would probably be the one for you, though still easily graphic and on the disturbitude scale of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' and ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'' put together.

** This holds true even in sequels and other expansions to Cupcakes. For example in [[spoiler: ''My Little Pony: Forensics is Magic'', it is revealed that most of the killings were orchestrated by Princess Celestia, since the body parts of the victims could be used in the creation of Homunculi, who could both replace the victims as well as provide horsepower for farming, which there was a shortage of according to Celestia in her {{Motive Rant}}. Wedge, one of the protagonists is told all of the above by Celestia, who has him at her mercy and is willing to kill him to ensure his silence. Just before she's does so, Applebloom, who had been peeking form behind a open door, rushes into the room and shields Wedge with her body. It seems like Applebloom made a HeroicSacrifice, then Celestia refrains from attacking Applebloom...until it's revealed that Wedge is Applebloom's, having helped Pinkie in her killing spree. Celestia lets Applebloom (who has the Cutie Mark of a hacksaw) and the other Cutie Mark Crusaders carry off Wedge to be tortured and killed, with Celestia apparently having plans for using the moon as a place for several secret depopulation camps. The ending does have a {{Hope Spot}} in the form of a Dictaphone that Wedge chucked to Derpy, who carried it to Twilight's house, where it was discovered by Spike.]]

* LighterAndSofter: ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/37363/cupcakes-redux Cupcakes Redux]]'', a re-imagining where what Pinkie does is stuff ponies absurdly full of treats. The descriptions can get a bit {{squick}}-y at times, but cartoon physics are in full effect – the worst thing that happens is a massive case of BalloonBelly. In the end, it reads much like one might expect a weird nightmare as it would depicted in the show itself.

** And for her detractors I.E haters of a certain blue pegasus, Rainbow Dash herself could qualify too. Though she's more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. This was written during S1 when Rainbow Dash was a lot less sympathetic too, almost an UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist so she ''definitely'' qualifies.

** Also, countless other fanfics have referenced ''Cupcakes'' itself due to its infamy:
*** ''FanFic/BetterLivingThroughScienceAndPonies'': [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} GLaDOS]] tries to convince Pinkie Pie that her friends know she's just a couple steps away from becoming a serial killer and baking them into cupcakes.
*** ''WebAnimation/TurnaboutStorm'': While [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix]] and Pinkie Pie are examining the victim's room, the inevitable ladder vs step ladder RunningGag is brought up. Phoenix compares it to cupcakes and muffins, Pinkie compares it to hacksaws and saws. The whole scene can be considered a BigLippedAlligatorMoment.
*** ''{{Webcomic/Hoofstuck}}'': In order to enter the Medium, Pinkie Pie needs to destroy her cruxite artifact, shaped like Rainbow Dash, with a knife. Unlike here, though, she does not savor the idea of carving up Dashie.
*** ''[[FanFic/SonicGenerationsFriendshipIsTimeless Sonic Generations: Friendship is Timeless]]'': Discord straps Rainbow Dash into a table that "looked like it was straight out of a horror story"--guess which one?
*** ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7144846 Ed, Edd n' Pony]]'': Chapter 2 reveals {{WesternAnimation/Ed|EddNEddy}} is [[OneOfUs a brony]], thanks to [[SpoiledBrat Sarah]]. Chapter 2 also reveals Ed was unfortunate enough to read ''Cupcakes''. What does he do next? He pounds his head against the cement floor to get it out of his head. The others brush it off as just Ed being [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Ed]]. A later chapter has Ed checking to see if Rainbow Dash was okay before eating a cupcake.
*** ''FanFic/ThePartyNeverEnded'' has it appear as [[spoiler:a nightmare Pinkie Pie is trapped in at one point]].
*** ''FanFic/{{Progress}}'': While in Pinkie Pie’s apartment, Princess Luna watched a gut-wrenchingly bad and graphic cable television horror movie version of ''Cupcakes'' while Pinkie was busy in the kitchen. Luna was then startled by a completely (well, mostly) innocent Pinkie, and became temporarily phobic of pastries and the color pink. [[spoiler: She tore the room apart before fleeing, but was [[EasilyForgiven forgiven]], got over it quickly, and enjoyed Pinkie Pie's company later the same day.]]
*** ''[[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/06/story-world-of-ponycraft.html World of Ponycraft]]'': Pinkie interrogates a cultist by telling her a cupcake recipe she [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall read in a fanfic once]].
*** ''[[http://jake-heritagu.deviantart.com/gallery/31046154#/d3iwfbu Silent Ponyville]]'' uses this fic as one of Pinkie's nightmares, even having her turn into this incarnation of Pinkie in [[http://jake-heritagu.deviantart.com/gallery/31046154#/d3k0ov4 one of the bad endings]]
*** In ''Fanfic/MyLittleDenarians'', the denarians briefly turn Pinkie into her Cupcakes version by tampering with the script, forcing Harry to invest a bit of his soul into giving her free will.
*** ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7284396 Rainbow Leap]]'' uses ... well, almost all of these as parallel universes.
*** The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' version of Pinkie Pie tells the readers to stop talking about that "stupid fanfic" when she gets to a point in her introduction where she mentions cupcakes. The scary part is she nearly [[SplitPersonalityTakeover gets taken over by]] [[EnemyWithin Angry Pie]], who is arguably every bit as psychotic as the ''Cupcakes'' version. This version of Pinkie ''really'' hates this fic. [[spoiler:In one chapter, the cast gets trapped in [[BigBad Princess Gaia's]] LotusEaterMachine. What is part of Pinkie Pie's fantasy? All copies of this fanfic being burned and a ''computer virus purging it from the internet!'']]
*** In the spinoff ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeriesChaosVerse'', ''Cupcakes'' is reenacted by Discord to entertain his daughter and her friends. [[spoiler:It is recreated as a live action show with most of the flaws of the infamous live action show of My Little Pony, turning ''Cupcakes'' into a comedy that makes [[ClonesArePeopleToo Chaos!Pinkie Pie]] and [[HalfHumanHybrid Fluttercruel]] laugh for 10 minutes.]]
*** ''FanFic/GettingBackOnYourHooves'' has Pinkie say she doesn't make cupcakes where people can see, and mentioning suing someone for defamation of character.
*** Fanmade game ''VideoGame/SuperFillyAdventure'' has several references to it, such as Pinkie asking player character Jade if she wants to make cupcakes with her, Twilight referring to a book called 'Cupcakes' (which Jade insists she shouldn't read), and Pinkie musing on the purpose of a 'hacksaw' and claiming she's seen an 'eevil' version of herself in the mirror.
*** ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' romhack ''VideoGame/EquestriaBound'' has cupcakes as healing items. Their description includes the following: "100% not made of anything questionable."
*** The fanfic 'Po-Ni-Oh: The Abridged Series' (A ponyfication of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'') has a shout-out during the soap opera parody in episode 7, where Grandpa shooting Tristan becomes Granny Smith making Derpy into Cupcakes (With Cupcakes capitalized to drive the point home).
*** ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/120319/a-series-of-stories A Series of Stories]]'', an AffectionateParody that pokes fun at the various cliches of the fandom, references this story after Rainbow Dash pretends to be her ''Fanfic/RainbowFactory'' self (the premise is a horror novel in this universe) as a prank on Twilight, pointing out her doing something like that would be as outrageous as 'that horror novel Pinkie Pie wrote.'
*** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' fanfic ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfSpyroANewDawn'' has [[DimensionalTraveller Delilah]] mention the "[[NoodleIncident Cupcakes Incident]]" on more than one occasion, which involved this universe and left her [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes deathly afraid of cupcakes]]. Apparently, she at least witnessed at least some of the events of the fanfic itself. It didn't seem to hurt her relationship with the canon version of Pinkie Pie though, who she lists as one of her best friends and is even upset she missed her birthday party. Though in the ''A New Dawn Side Story'', Delilah is seen taking therapy for it.
*** The ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' fanfic ''Hanako Bakes Cupcakes'' has Hanako brutally slaying Lilly, Hisao, Shizune and Misha after serving pieces of her flesh to them in cupcakes.
*** The ''{{VideoGame/Portal}}'' fanfic ''{{Fanfic/Being Human|APortalFanfic}}'' has [=GLaDOS=] claiming to Wheatley she wrote ''Cupcakes''. She says it was very well received.
*** In ''FanFic/MyLittleCabooseBlueIsMagic'', Tucker has a nightmare about him and RD being processed into cupcake batter by Pinkie and Caboose.
*** In ''FanFic/SweetiesMansion'', the intermission chapter mentions a novel about a seemingly cheerful girl who lures her best friend into the basement and murders her.
