Many a fic points out that [[SuperweaponSurprise atomic weaponry is humanity's ace-in-the-hole.]] Sometimes they shatter the [[AdvancingWallOfDoom Barrier]] and consign millions of ponies to agonizing death by radiation poisoning, sometimes not.not.
** This was attempted in ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/359324/conversion-zebra Conversion Zebra]]'' and its sequel, but with two major differences: one, the attempted nuking is by KnightTemplar types who deeply misunderstand the situation (as a {{Reconstruction}}, the ponies are genuinely benevolent and are completely on humanity's side in the crisis), and two...the Veil is ''not'' a physical barrier so the nuke just goes right through it. However, Celestia, [[ThePowerOfTheSun having domain over the sun and thus nuclear fusion]], is immune to radiation and just absorbs it to prevent damage.



** ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/359324/conversion-zebra Conversion Zebra]]'' is one intended to present the setting in a world where the ponies are much closer to their show selves (with a ReasonableAuthorityFigure Celestia who has no intentions of conquest in any form) and the Veil is ''genuinely'' a force of existence neither side can do anything about. Ponification is genuinely a last resort to save humanity from the Veil that decidedly does not cause a DeathOfPersonality and the ponies themselves for the most part aren't forcing it on anyone. The HLF ''and'' PER are both presented as equally bad extremist groups who are both WrongGenreSavvy about the situation. The mirror portal to the Equestria Girls verse is also mentioned as a potential solution for humans who wish to return to being human after all is said and done if they so choose, and human technology is being preserved. The main protagonist is a newfoal zebra trying to adjust to his new life and being fed up with the FantasticRacism he sometimes gets from ''both'' sides who don't truly understand the situation.

*** This is continued in the sequel, ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/386939/conversion-dragon-a-dragon-walks-into-a-bar Conversion Dragon]]'' set in the same universe. As suggested by the above Zebra situation, the humans have full choice in ''what'' they become (with some exceptions for safety's sake), in this case an elderly woman who became a dragon, which she's rather happy about given 70s for humans is teenaged years for dragons (though there is a limitation on the number of dragons conversions due to a population boom of Dragons has obvious drawbacks) so she's young again. The entire story is mainly just her and a still human bartender having friendly conversation.

** On the Spacebattles forums, ''Literature/TheDraka'' are considered less evil. "Damn it, I have absolutely NO idea who to cheer for! On one hand, we have the xenophobic racist abominations of nature that violate almost every law and convention that exists, and on the other hand, we have the Draka!"

** Chatoyance has been seen as one for a multitude of reasons. However, the big one is that her Earth has been written and described as a {{cyberpunk}}-esque [[CrapsackWorld shithole]]. Her Equestria is written as a SugarBowl world. These two stylistic choices coupled with the high incidence of ponification, lead many to interpret this as message that [[ThisLoserIsYou humans are incapable of managing their own affairs]] and that humans are lesser beings. Hence the assumption that she's a misanthrope. Of course, she has not done anything to denounce any of the claims of misanthropy.
--> Chatoyance: "In my stories superior beings - truly superior beings - can do things that if a lesser being, like a human, were to do, it would indeed be evil."

** ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/220944/when-the-sun-comes When the Sun Comes]]'' can be considered this as well. Celestia and the ponies genuinely go and offer humanity as much salvation as they can without changing anyone's bodies or minds, no side is treated as being better than the other and the disaster that prompts all this was not man-made, but a natural disaster (supervolcanos erupting).
