The ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/chapter/151152 Battleships Universe]]'' is a series of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfics by [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/totallynotabrony totallynotabrony]]. The story begins in ''Battleships are Magic'', where a modern human battleship ends up in Equestria right as a war begins. ''Connection'' describes the first official contact between Equestria and Earth. The stories that follow describe the contacts between Earth and Equestria, and the adventures and developing careers of the pony characters on Earth.
Note that the first story, ''Battleships are Magic'', has its own Wiki/TVTropes [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/reviews.php?target_group=FanficRecs&target_title=Battleships%20are%20Magic review page]] from the FanficRecs index.
!!Tropes in the series include:
* AlternateHistory: The series as a whole counts as this, given that ''Battleships are Magic'' is set in the past. (Specifically August 1990, during Operation Desert Shield).
* CerebusSyndrome: The newest story, ''Ponyville Class'' is ''the'' first in the series to have the "Dark" tag.
** Though not sudden as "The Truth" had a few character deaths.
* ClockKing: Constant Clock, though he's ''not'' a villain.
* CurbStompBattle: In ''Battleships are Magic'', the Equestrians (thanks to the ''Wisconsin'' providing naval support) pretty much '''pulverise''' a troop of dragons that had been invading the Zebra homeland.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: A random driver fumbling for a cassette tape while driving nearly gets Celestia, Twilight, and Pinkie killed.
* InvincibleHero: The USS ''Wisconsin'' in ''Battleships are Magic''. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] given the ship's [[MoreDakka sheer firepower]] and the differences in tech between Earth and Equestria this early in the series.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: The Flim Flam brothers.]]
* MassTeleportation: A battleship (specifically the USS ''Wisconsin''), in ''Battleships are Magic''.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: The Ukrainian Mob thinks this way in the "The Truth".
* NoAntagonist / SliceOfLife: Some of the fics in the series are these.
** In the second story the closest thing to a Antagonist is an idiot that took his eyes of the road and runs a van off a bridge nearly killing two of the mane six and Celestia.
* OutOfCharacterAlert: ''The Truth''. Corrupt detective Smally mentions that Constant Clock mentioned awaiting his friends "in a couple of minutes". The other characters realize he's lying, as Constant Clock [[ClockKing always knows a precise time]].
* WarFic: ''Battleships are Magic''.
** One of the latest stories, ''Ponyville Class'' also qualifies.
