Added DiffLines:

* DearNegativeReader: Thomas frequently begins chapters by saying that his critics are going to Hell for "mocking" him.


Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: The series has a lot of similarities to ''FanFic/MyImmortal'', though WordOfGod is that all those references were done unintentionally.

** St. George was apparently a demon. Despite being a ''saint.'' It's somewhat more understandable, though, if you consider that he's the patron saint of England, which the author seems to consider an evil country for, among other reasons, Henry VIII cutting ties with the Roman Catholic Church and for being host to [[Literature/HarryPotter Hogwarts]].

* EsotericHappyEnding: Satan is defeated, but the United State is now an oppressive theocracy (and in the later installments, England, Ireland and other countries seem to be following suit), Harry Potter has been killed while Voldemort is still on the loose, and a very unpopular Tsar has been restored to the throne, messing up history. Um...yay?

* HilariousInHindsight: The Prayer Warriors support Donald Trump for President as early as the 2012 election, and [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10807606/102/The-Prayer-Warriors-Saga one chapter of "Titans Strike Back," posted in April 2016, predicted Trump's victory]]. Of course, for those who dislike Trump, it may also count as HarsherInHindsight.

Added DiffLines:

* BileFascination: Really, the only reason why most people would even read this fic. The "heroes" are unheroic, the author holds insane beliefs, and there are multiple grammar and spelling errors to boot. But then, that is why this fic is even read in the first place.

* CompleteMonster: Jupiter. Unlike the other villains, [[EstablishingCharacterMoment he quickly makes an impression]] that he is no mere DesignatedVillain when he crosses the MoralEventHorizon by torturing two Prayer Warriors to death, and doesn't even bother asking the first any questions. He then plans on coercing two Prayer Warriors into fighting one another in a similarly pointless display of cruelty, and when that fails, he escapes. In the India arc, it is revealed that Jupiter uses children as slaves, and he [[HeroKiller kills Percy]] after [[NoSell miraculously surviving]] a BoltOfDivineRetribution. His actions are played as completely horrific at all times, and he [[EvenEvilHasStandards apparently inspires no loyalty from even his fellow Roman gods]], as one dying goddess claims Jupiter was using her and the others.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: If it ain't a Christian, it's a Satanist, and it has to die.

to:

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: More than a few of them, and almost always very obvious.
**
If it ain't a Christian, it's a Satanist, and it has to die.die.
** Women are useless and should be subservient to men. Thankfully, this is also a BrokenAesop, as the women are far more effective than the author gives them credit for.

Added DiffLines:

* AbsenteeActor: Rarity is the only one of the Mane Six who doesn't appear in The Prayer Ponies, with no explanation as to why. Most of the other fics made at least a token effort to include the main cast, even if they're not in character.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Even ignoring all the spelling and grammar errors, mythological errors, {{Plot Hole}}s, {{Writer Cop Out}}s, and {{Designated Hero}}es or {{Designated Villain}}s, it's hard to excuse the continuity errors. Grover, Annabeth, Clarisse, Thalia, and Harry all show up quite frequently after getting killed off.

** The [[{{Retcon}} retconning]] of Michael's death at the end of ''Battle with the Witches''.

to:

** The [[{{Retcon}} retconning]] of Michael's death at the end of ''Battle with the Witches''. Granted, the series is fairly vague about who the POV character is at any given point.



** Meta-example: Noah Brown, weather or not he actually exists or was made up by the troll who created this. In the chapters written by him, his notes are every bit as over the top self-righteous as Thomas Brown's, until he came out as bi. He had to run away from home to avoid his brother's wrath (and Thomas was supposedly out [[FridgeHorror looking for him]]), and on top of everything inspired Jupiter's [[DepravedBisexual characterisation]], as Thomas felt like spiting his brother.

** In [[EstablishingCharacterMoment his first appearance]], Jupiter [[ColdBloodedTorture tortures Annabeth and Grover]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath to death]], and then [[ILoveTheDead does unspeakable things to their dead bodies]], mostly ForTheEvulz- notice that he doesn't even bother interrogating Annabeth before he kills her.



** Zia tortures William to the point at which he starts repeatedly vomiting.



* SnarkBait

to:

* SnarkBaitSnarkBait: There's a lot to make fun of in this series- the author's insane beliefs, the abysmal spelling and grammar, the blatant inconsistencies (notably how many characters keep coming BackFromTheDead) and the overall poor writing, among many others.

* ThirtySuePileup: ''Every'' Christian in the story.
** GodModeSue: Jerry, who [[HijackingCthulhu actually has God at his beck and call]], and is able to [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] most people he meets, with very few exceptions (Literature/{{Percy Jackson|and the Olympians}} and apparently "Rika").
** PossessionSue: The converted canon characters, [[WeAreTeamCannonFodder when they're not being cannon fodder]].
** PuritySue: All of our heroes...[[JerkSue but it's not a "good" purity they have]].
** RelationshipSue: Mary has virtually no personality outside of being Jerry's girlfriend.
