My Little Pony Crossover
An index listing pony crossovers, many of which already have their own page here
Friendship Is Magic has an extremely prolific, creative, art-driven, popculture-loving fandom that crosses it over with pretty much anything and everything, through any medium, be it Fan Fiction or Fan-Art or Fan Videos or Fan Games or Fan Anything. A Fimfiction search with the tag "crossovers" brings a *lot* of resutls. As of this article's writing, there are 13195 pages' worth of MLP images tagged "crossover" on image aggregator Derpibooru*. A search on DeviantArt returns 5091 works. Go on YouTube and search for "MLP + popular work" and you'll probably find something. As usual, Sturgeon's Law applies; thankfully, the quantity of work produced is so immense, there's a very large amount of very excellent work out there. One could hypothesize that this phenomenon is encouraged by the show's tendency to incorporate popular culture into its setting, plots, jokes, songs... references and homages abound,and the setting is at once vague and yet vivid in such a way that it's easy to meld with pretty much anything. As bronies often say, "IT BLENDS!" There are also many works that cross-over in spirit, in the style of Spiritual Successor and Spiritual Licensee, or "your premise recycled IN EQUESTRIA. Examples (classified by medium of origin of the work being crossed over with): Anime and Manga Comic Books
- Comicbook/Watchmen fanfic Rorschach In Equestria is Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
- X-Men has Wolverine: The Equestrian Myth.
- The Lord of the Rings
- Doctor Who: Even before the first season wrapped up, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic had already been crossed over a very large amount of times with Doctor Who. The british series's already great popularity in the internet and the presence of a background pony fans nicknamed Doctor Whoof/Whooves* goes a long way towards explaining this.
- Said background pony is now commercially sold as a vinyl figure, officially named Doctor Whooves.
- The Three Whooves involves several Doctors helping each other.
- Number Twelve involves the Doctor literally crashing into Twilight's life. It has two radio Spin Offs:
- Fallout. Dear gosh Fallout.
- Fallout: Equestria is an extremely popular, lengthy work that has spawned an entire shared verse of side fics, an a host of extra material of all kinds. [[Here's its page on Equestria Daily, as well as the pages of the relevant side stories, of which there are a lot. It has a dedicated website of its own. Recursive Fan Fiction that have their own page here include:
- Fallout: Equestria - Project Horizons, a Darker and Edgier story about an ex-security mare who goes a long way from selfish thoughtless violent Jerk Ass Heroic Sociopath to becoming The Messiah through an amazingly thorough execution of Misery Builds Character.
- Fallout: Equestria - Pink Eyes has a literal case of Rose Tinted Glasses in the case of a zombie child in a hazmat suit who is blissfully ignorant of the horror of her condition and the that of the world around her, who has regenerative immortality and leaks lethal pink gas whenever her hazmat suit pierces itself.
- Fan Fic/Fallout: Equestria - Heroes
- Fallout: Equestria - Murky Number Seven is about the life of a young slave. Lots of Purple Prose, introspection, and highly emotional moments. The parts of the life of a slave that Django Unchained did not cover.
- And many more are listed in our FanficRecommendations page.
- It Must Be Tuesday is a straight Lone Wanderer ends up in Equestria fic.
- Halo: There also appears to be a large overlap with the Halo Fandom which beside Doctor Who seems to be fairly easily the most numerous crossover target in fan fics.
- In Haylo, A New World, the Chief wakes up to find the remains of his Frigate has landed on a colorful, new planet.
- In Halo On The Wings Of Angels, Twilight Sparkle is teleported to a world about to be glassed by The Covenant.
- Red Versus Blue gives us My Little Caboose: Blue is Magic!; What happens when the Reds and Blues finally get Church out of the Epsilon unit? Caboose decides he wants a turn in the unit, of course! What happens next? Well let's just say he always did say he wanted a pony, now he has a world full of them.
- Portal has generated quite a few works: **My Little Portal
- Silent Hill gives us Silent Ponyville
- Skyrim is very popular for crossovers. Fluttershy tends to be cast as Dragonborn because of her Dragon-dominating powers exhibited in Dragonshy.
- The MLP and Team Fortress fandoms are friendly enough, and the games makes it easy enough to make mods that many notable videos have been released.
- Mane 6, to the tune of Invaders Must Die, was one especially notable video, that inspired a whole bunch of similar works.
- Entire communities devoted to making TF2 mods.
- Making subtle (and not-so-subtle) pony references is a popular pasttime on the official Team Fortress forums. As well as lambasting the hell out of the person who made the reference.
- Waking Nightmares: Luna's nightmares herald the arrival of nine warriors from another world, as terror haunts Celestia.
- World of Ponycraft''
- Pony Age: Origins
- My Little Chrono Triggers Are Magic
