* FlameWar: The original and its spin-offs tend to inspire these. Half of the comments decry the series as disturbingly misanthropic, while the other half fanatically defend it as an accurate representation of humanity's flawed nature.



* Nicknaming the Enemy: Occurs on both sides in various fics. The ponies often refer to the humans as "apes" or "monkeys". Humans call the ponies everything from "Celestians" to "geldos" and various other crude phrases.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Rampant xenophobia to the point where xenocide is seen as a good thing, and worshipping a GodEmperor (well, Empress) who leads them in their quest to destroy things not of them? Chatoyance's ponies bear more than a passing resemblance to the [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 Imperium of Man]] (who themselves are an amalgamation of the worst parts of several historical regimes, such as the Crusaders, the Soviets, and the Nazis).


Added DiffLines:

* FlameWar: Almost assured when discussions of her stories occur.

* ScaryDogmaticAliens: Her ponies have elements of ''all four types''.
** Ponies as Nazis: The ponies consider themselves superior to humans, and are in the process of committing a perfect genocide (destroying any sign that a culture ever existed) against humanity.
** Ponies as Communists: Their plot is to assimilate an entire race to become like them.
** Ponies as Religious Zealots: Celestia is their goddess, and they will follow her every word.
** Ponies as Conquistadores: The end result of the Barrier is that all of Earth will belong to Equestria, and be under Equestria's government.

* CantArgueWithElves: The ponies are often shown relatively close to canon: they don't generally swear, they're almost universally kind, and their society has a place for everypony. However, the ponies often drive home how [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters humans are bastards]].

* CantArgueWithElves: The ponies. While Blaze's ponies aren't ''too'' far from canon, the ponies are often shown relatively close portrayed as a SuperiorSpecies who are simply ''better'' than humans, and as such have a right to canon: do anything they don't generally swear, they're almost universally kind, and their society has a place for everypony. However, the ponies often drive home how [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters humans are bastards]].want to humanity.

* InYourNatureToDestroyYourselves: The ponies and PER humans that believe this of humanity use this as a justification for their ForYourOwnGood basis of ponification.

** ''Grayscale'' has the scenario play out as usual... but all the ponies have the same characterization as the show, including/especially Princess Celestia, who does not have any control over the barrier and does make the process entirely voluntary. The Equestrians themselves are divided into those who believe they're committing genocide and those who believe they should save as many people as possible. It's mentioned that while the Human Liberation Front attacks the bureaus, so do ponies. The Mane Six nearly [[BreakingTheFellowship broke up when they disagreed about the process was right or not]]. Pinkie Pie did go insane and is in an asylum. The ponies who work at the centers themselves [[DespairEventHorizon burnout mentally]], and the readers see what happens as a pony doctor goes insane and tries to kill her coworkers, as well and being driven to despair and begging for someone to kill her.
-->"We tear them so the soul leaks out! Nothing left, and something grows, but it's not what it was! Not what it was!"
** ''Not Alone'' is a RealityEnsues story where it's shown that humanity would not take kindly to the ponies' misanthropic attitudes, the effects of the expanding barrier (such as loss of infrastructure and human displacement) are explored in detail, and it's shown that not only do a good number of ponies disagree with the conversion, but the other races in Equus aren't happy about it either.
** ''The Other Side of the Spectrum'' is a WarFic that exercises RealityEnsues and MirrorUniverse to serve all kinds of vicious [[TakeThat middle fingers]] at the premise of TCB and the FridgeLogic and FridgeHorror that the genre brought up.
** The ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/301668/negotiations Negotiations Verse]]'' centers on Twilight Sparkle, the only living Alicorn princess, realizing overtime the atrocities of ponification. It also gives Celestia a very plausible motivation for her actions, though it's also made clear that her mistakes and shortsightedness have made her irredeemable.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Solving world hunger by reprocessing human waste into food is no more plausible than any other form of PerpetualMotionMachine; human waste, after all, is made up of what's left over from the food that went into it.
