* BigBad: Erebos seems set up as this for the series. On top of that, he's also something of a BiggerBad for canon, since he caused Luna's transformation into Nightmare Moon, Chrysalis' own corruption from whatever she used to be, and is implied to be connected to Discord and Sombra as well.
** That said, he only briefly shows up near the beginning of ''Atlas Strongest Tournament'', before leaving Chrysalis in charge of the plan. So he's really more of a BiggerBad of the series, with Chrysalis as the BigBad for that story.

''Ponies of Olympus'' is a series of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' stories by [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Bico Bico]] that heavily incorporates elements of ClassicalMythology into the backstories of the side characters (primarily the Princesses). Starting with the second story, a StoryArc about Spike [[TookALevelInBadass taking levels in badass]] and the plans of the GodOfEvil Erebos starts taking shape.

The series is rather good, depicting the characters rather well while at the same time managing to have realistic CharacterDevelopment for everyone. Also, it manages to mostly maintain OriginalFlavor even as it develops a darker subtext.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasticRacism: The Crystal Ponies are not that fond of Spike, as they have apparently had unpleasant experiences with dragons before (and even if it was a millennium ago for the rest of the world, it's more recent for them due to their banishment).

Added DiffLines:

* {{Metaphorgotten}}: When Twilight notes that her status as a Princess demands she negotiate with the Diamond Dogs for Spike and their other captives' release instead of attacking them, Fluttershy chimes in with the "you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" adage before timidly admitting that it's really the other way around. Applejack adds that Sweet Apple Acres cider is ''really'' the best for the job before Twilight exasperatedly lampshades the whole thing.

His trip to the market goes to the dogs when the Crystal Empire is subjected to an unprecedented raid on their home turf and Spike suddenly finds himself in a gilded cage.
