What do [[IndianaJones a globetrotting archaeologist]], [[SamuraiJack a time-tossed samurai]], and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic six magical multicolored ponies]] have in common? Not much! But when a magical gem and sheer coincidence throw them into a strange new place seemingly formed out of the worst aspects of each of their worlds, they're going to have to work together to get home - while they still have homes to get back to!

* CameBackStrong: Several of the group's old enemies are brought back tougher. The swordsman who Indy simply shot is now able to deflect bullets with his sword. Demongo can now ''become'' his enslaved warriors and fight battles personally.



* EmpathicWeapon: When Jack is incapacitated at one point, Rarity picks up his sword with her telekinesis and wields it. When she does this, she actually senses the sword judging her. Fortunately, it found her worthy.
* GladiatorGames: In the recreation of Jack's world, the group gets trapped in the Dome of Doom and forced to face several of their old enemies.



** Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie get stuck in what appears to be a pony version of ''AlanWake'', Twilight and Jack go through a Canterlot that has gone through its own version of ''SystemShock2'', Applejack and Rarity are trapped in an Equestrian version of the popular GameMod ''NightmareHouse 2'', and Indy and Dash have to navigate through an Equestrian version of the Shalebridge Cradle from ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}: Deadly Shadows''.

* CerebusSyndrome: The chapters in the recreation of Indy's world and before it were pretty lighthearted, since the plot had yet to develop much past the basics. The recreation of Jack's world fleshed the plot out much more and helped to pile on the serious aspect of this story. Knowing how peaceful Equestria is, you'd expect it to be a lot more LighterAndSofter. [[spoiler: '''[[ItGotWorse HELL NO.]]''']]

* KillEmAll: [[spoiler: The recreation of Equestria seems to have had this happen to its residents. [[ItGotWorse With added zombification for good measure.]]]]

* TragicKeepsake: Indy has a lighter belonging to his father. [[spoiler:He ends up losing it after using it to light up some kerosene barrels to keep off some enemies behind them. Applejack expressed apology in him having to lose it, only to find him grinning and saying that his dad would've been furious if he somehow hadn't.]]
--> [[spoiler:'Junior, you should know that some little bauble is hardly as important as the lives of innocents!']]

** The story itself; [[spoiler: the group reasons with Fracture and assists it, allowing them to return to their homeworlds. Yet they never see each other again - at least not that we know of yet.]]



* BookEnds: [[spoiler: Upon returning to their own worlds, Indy and the mane six find themselves in the areas where they disappeared, and presumably Jack did as well (though his scene starts a while after he returns to his world, so we don't know for sure).]]



* ChekhovsGunman: The tiger Fluttershy befriends. [[spoiler: With some shades of BackForTheDead, given how it dies shortly after returning.]]
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Fracture, the main villain and the cause of the alternate universes, is connected to each and every timeline to ever exist, and is pretty much ''a sentient universe''. [[spoiler: Yet even he can't stand up to Fluttershy's Stare.]]



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It's possible that the author may come back to it, but for now it seems we'll never really find out [[spoiler: if Princess Luna could stop the Many, or if Trixie and Lyra defeated the Taken]].

to:

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Fracture. [[spoiler: Subverted in that he's not exactly evil; he was just doing what he believed would protect him. He is reasoned with rather easily once he sees how much pain the others - particularly Fluttershy - have felt.]]
* SequelHook: ''Desperate Times''. Confirmed by WordOfGod.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It's possible that the author may come back to it, but for now it It seems we'll never really find out [[spoiler: if Princess Luna could stop the Many, or if Trixie and Lyra defeated the Taken]].
