** Chapter 13 of ''Star Fleet Magic VI'' is another good example: it deals with the full ramifications of a MayflyDecemberRomance, kills off the VillainOfTheWeek via RapidAging, and ends on a none-too-subtly implied sex scene. [[SarcasmMode Y'know, for kids]].

* CriticalResearchFailure: Mykan gets a lot of the basic facts about ''[=FiM=]'' wrong in the story. For starters, the author believes Rainbow Dash has magic (to be fair, pegasi have a latent magic in them that allows them to control the weather, but it's not the same as the unicorns' mystical powers).

** Another example would be his description of United Equestrian rail travel. He states how the new trains (like almost all of his creations) are SO much faster than the Equestrian ones and don't have to be pulled by ponies. It's clear he got this assumption from a brief scene in the episode "Over a Barrel" where several stallions are pulling a steam locomotive. What Mykan seemed to have forgotten was that this phenomenon was only shown once in the show and it was mostly done for the sake of a subtle joke towards wild-west culture. The show has shown on multiple occasions (including one version of the show's opening) that Equestrian steam locomotives run pretty much like the ones in real life and do not need to be pulled by other ponies.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Human!Celestia in ''Starfleet Humans''. It's shown at the beginning when Lightning [[TooDumbToLive sings and dances while in the middle of the road she is driving on,]] clearly stressed and upset. Granted, it's not a good idea to look at your notes while driving, but the story [[NeverMyFault (and Lightning)]] shoehorns all the blame towards her for getting angry at her. When the fic reveals that her pet horse died, which led her into a HeroicBSOD [[spoiler:courtesy of Sapphira]], Lightning uses it as ammo against her in the aforementioned MoralEventHorizon above. We're supposed to see the attack as ''her's'' instead, as indicated by Luna calling her a 'monster', but granted, Lightning, maybe saying that someone's pet deserved to die wasn't exactly the best course of action when you're trying to prove your friend's innocence.

** Brass Bolt from ''Starfleet Magic VI'' is a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute for Ace Ray who wants to see a revolution overthrowing Starfleet and sets an entire prison's populace loose on them, making for a very interesting potential BigBad who's not a completely clich&eacuted GenericDoomsdayVillain. Instead, he gets busted in the second chapter by a cheap {{Asspull}}. Even better, the author later complains that [[{{Irony}} he's having trouble driving the story forward without a Big Bad pulling the strings]].

* {{Sequelitis}}: The original story has four sequels and counting, one's a "movie" and another is based on WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls, and they don't get any better. Beats0me, a Website/DeviantArt member who draws parody comics of MLU, noted that the beginning of the series is SoBadItsGood, reminiscent of watching a corny old kids' action cartoon. However, the further it goes on, the more racism, sexism and other disturbing content start cropping up.

** ''Starfleet Magic VI'' has Brass Bolt, who's basically Ace Ray 2.0, and makes even ''better'' points about Starfleet than Ace did. It's very hard not to agree with him, especially since his thoughts and situation read very much like a protagonist in dystopian fiction and are completely accurate to Starfleet's portrayal. To quote the story itself:
--> “They come to our world, lead their enemies to us, and if that wasn’t bad enough they turned us from normal ponies into these human shaped weirdos! Oh, and to add insult to injury, they treat us all like we’re inferior and enslave us with their martial laws, and when trouble comes they just fight and kill, and they arrest creatures with no good reason…
--> …They’re nothing but a bunch of silly, overbearing tyrannical dictators! Why can’t you guys see that? Why can’t anyone see that?”



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Cerise from ''My Brave Pony: Star Fleet Magic II'' is a major in Starfleet, can stand toe-to-toe with Lightning and can use the Uniforce. She is a one-shot character.

Added DiffLines:

** The entire Raven subplot in ''Starfleet Magic III''. Someone makes repeated threats on Celestia's life? ''Do absolutely nothing about it''. Even better, Grand Ruler ''orders'' Starfleet to let her go completely unchecked.
* InferredHolocaust: At one point in ''III'', Frosteye freezes all of United Equestria over, with temperatures reaching as low as ''-100 degrees'' in parts such as the Crystal Empire. This is treated simply as global HarmlessFreezing by the story, but considering the toll it takes on Lightning and company despite their survival, it's safe to assume that some weren't so lucky...

* DesignatedMonkey: Cadance, full stop. The author hates her for being HappilyMarried so he makes her [[spoiler:kill her own brother who's been turned partly mechanical and evil]], suffer horrific nightmares, get beaten up by the AuthorAvatar, and miscarry when a pillar topples onto her. Speaking of Shining Armor, for some reason, even though he's her husband, he doesn't get punished nearly as much...
