''Ponies One Half'' is a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' crossover with ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' by Creator/EmmaIveli, and only the second ever ''Ranma/My Little Pony Friendship is Magic'' crossover.

The premise is simple: [[FandomSpecificPlot Twilight screws up a teleportation spell]], and ends up teleporting her and the rest of the Mane Six right above the Drowned Girl spring, so they all fall in and are cursed to change into human women on contact with cold water. Ranma and Genma arrive the same day, and get cursed as per canon. They soon meet the Mane Six, and Twilight agrees to help them cure the curse in exchange for helping them adjust to this new world.

Naturally, {{Hilarity Ensues}}.

The fic's original cut in FanFictionDotNet is [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7531678/1/Ponies_One_Half here]], and the [=FIMFiction.Net=] "director's cut" is [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/8814/Ponies-One-Half here]].

----
!!This fanfic contains examples of:
* ActorAllusion: As expected, chapter 66 has a gag about Inuyasha and Ranma having the same voice. The gag is also done involving Rainbow and Applejack, whom also share a VA.
** There's also a gag in the second chapter where the ponies remark that Shampoo sounds similar to either Spike or the mayor, whose VA likewise voiced the three characters in their respective series.
** Another gag is made involving when Ranma-chan puts on Lina Inverse's outfit. Both were voiced by the same seiyuu. The gag returns in chapter 80, and Asuza neds up as Sonoko from Detective Conan; again, this trope is in play.
** And of course, the inveitable [[FanNickname DisQord]] gag is made, with him taking on John De Lancie's apeparance, and getting mobbed by Star Trek fans.
* AintNoRule: Discord forgot to include a rule about the Heaven And Earth Solution in his little fake memories game. Cologne uses this mistake to restore Shampoo's memories.
* AllJustADream: See FakeOutOpening below.
** Also happens in ch.104, when Madame St.Paul's attempts to have Momo eat meat give her a Cupcake Killer nightmare..though we don't realize it at first.
** Happens again in ch.105, via Luna showing Picolet what'd happen if Momo was forced to marry him.
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: Chapter 76 takes us back to Ponyville. The trope name is even used.
** We return to Ponyville in Chapter 101, as we see Shining Armor take the news about [[spoiler: Prism Star,]] and asks for advice from Big Mac and Blinkie on how to take her existence, as nicece or as a sister.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Ranma talking about Genma: "Well you see, pops put me into a pit of starving cats, kidnapped me, abandoned my best friends on more than one occasion, sold me off for marriage just so he could steal an okonomiyaki cart and there was this one time he stole my fries."

* BadassInDistress: Ranma gets kidnapped by Kodachi in chapter 100.
* BatmanGambit: An epic one is pulled in chapter 110 in order to cause Nabiki [[spoiler: to give up on being Ranma's fiancee.

* [[BurningWithAnger Turning Super Saiyan with Anger]]: What Shou does when the film strip thief leaves behind [[BerserkButton a Bat Credit Card]]. Pure visual gag.
* ButtMonkey:
** Genma gets ''many'' well-deserved beatings.
** Spike is worse off, he has only appeared in four chapters, but every time, he's been hurt badly: the first was getting crushed by a wheel barrel full of hammers (twice) and then in his second appearance, mauled by Opal. His third appearance has him chasing Angel, to..limited success. In the fourth appearance, he nearly gets pounded on by Angel and Opal.
** Principal Kuno gets whooped during his debut arc, big time.
* BilingualBonus: Mahoukaze, it can translate to [[spoiler: Magic Wind]].

** Genma accepts a deal with [[spoiler: Loofah and Discord to get rid of the ponies.]]

** Discord did something similar when he created the Discorded copies..He didn't know the baddass levels the Mane Six had gotten.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Seito is added to the director's cut in chapter 10. He and Tsukiko appear in the recut's chapter 16.
** During the Martial Arts Marathon, Lum, Ataru, Inuyasha, and Kagome cameo. The UY and Inuyasha casts eventually get their own chapters.
* EasyAmnesia: Happens to Ranma during the "Am I Pretty" chapter. Momo says to hit him with a rock..which of course works.
* EpicFail: Gosunkugi's attempt to kidnap Akane during the crazy RomeoAndJuliet production. Emi and Shou [[LampshadeHanging call it for what it is]].
* EnemyMine: Invoked by Pinkie when [[spoiler: Discord]] , of all beings,allies with them. Then again, he did create the threat in the first place...
** Happosai is on Seito's side during Discord's memory altering game..just so he can get the girls all back in one house to ogle them.

* FakeMemories: [[spoiler: Thanks to Discord, in chapter 112, everyone's memories are altered to be closer to Ranma 1/2 canon, including the ponies(minus Luna) as part of a deal Genma had with him to get the ponies out of the way.]] Luckily, Ryoga was lost at the time, so he wasn't affected.
* FakeOutOpening: Chapter 30 opens with [[spoiler: Shampoo distraught over killing Ranma while {{Brainwashed}}]], which turns out to be [[AllJustADream just a dream]].
** Chapter 105 does a similar trick as Chapter 30.
* FailuresOnIce: Ranma and Ryoga's first attempt at ice skating is...[[EpicFail spectacular]], and not in a good way.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: Principal Kuno's buzz cut policy angers Belle due to it being a crime against fabulosity, making her lead the charge against him.
* ForWantOfANail:
** The Mane Six's presence changes plenty of things. See NakedFirstImpression for a major example.
** Loofah is a direct result of this, she went after Ranma because Shampoo didn't give him the kiss of death.
* FourthWallObserver: Pinkie Pie, as usual.
* FrickinLaserBeams:
** The CMC's KillerRobot has one for some reason, even though none of them can remember adding one to it.
** Certain portions of the cosplay race have lasers that only vaporize clothing. Nautrally lampshaded.

--> (all hands go down)
** And chapter 27
-->Emi: This is a test to test your knowledge about anime! You need a 50 or higher to pass. Now any questions?

--> Emi: Oh and before you ask, no this is not based on the first part of the Chunin exam from Naruto.
--> (All hands go down)
* FountainOfYouth: [[spoiler: Queen Cosmos is turned into a baby once the Elements of Harmony hit her, giving her a second chance.]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser:
** Once again, Pinkie Pie, who while the gang is trying to defeat [[spoiler: a memory wiped Shampoo]] attacks her with a fish ("Don't worry, it's fake!")
** The Anything-Goes Rhythmic Gymnastics match starts off using typical implements, clubs, ribbons, balls and hoops, but by the end such things as bells, tables, hot kettles, pandas and older brothers are being used as weapons.
* InSpiteOfANail: "Hearts and Hooves Day" happened before the CMC landed on Earth.
** Despite the faked memories, Discord and co.didn't change Belle leading the charge against Principal Kuno, Belle fixiing Akane's hair, and Kasumi and Dr.Tofu are still together.
* InterspeciesRomance: Fluttershy and Ryoga are the main ones. Twilight and Seito and Pinkie and Shou to a lesser extent.

* JustBetweenYouAndMe: Twilight tries to make Queen Cosmos do this, but it fails.

* LampshadeHanging: Plenty. One good example is Pinkie trying to use old anime training methods to help Ran, who mentions that she reads too much manga.
* LethalChef: Akane and [[spoiler: Sweetie Belle]]. The former is more of her needing to check the labels. Pinkie sings a song about that.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Pinkie and Ranma's relationship.
* LoopholeAbuse: Discord tries to invoke this to keep Rainbow Dash from using the Sonic Rainboom in chapter 114 to help remind her friends of their real memories, but Rainbow Dash counters with some of her own. The same thing happens when Cologne shows Shampoo the Heaven and Earth Solution rule, as Discord forgot to make not using that a rule.
* LoveAtFirstSight: Apparently the case with Chiyo/Fluttershy and Ryoga.
* MeaningfulName: The ponies' human names are all meaningful:
** Hikaru Hakumei/Twilight Sparkle: One of Hikaru's meanings is "sparkle", and Hakumei means "twilight".
** Ran Issanni/Rainbow Dash: A pun on the word "ran", and Issanni means "at top speed".
** Momo Mochi/Pinkie Pie: Momo is derived from momoiro, which means "pink", and Mochi is a Japanese sweet.
** Chiyo/Fluttershy: Chiyo means "butterfly", and Onbin means "gentle".
** Belle Perle/Rarity: Belle is based on Rarity's {{Fanon}}[[invoked]] last name, and Perle is French for "jewel".

** [[spoiler:Sweetie Belle/Suzette Perle: Suzette is a French name.]]
** [[spoiler:Scootaloo/Haruka Gentsuki: Gentsuki means "scooter".]]
* MemeticSexGod: In-Universe, Ranma has become famous for having his curse, being allowed to marry more than one girl, being just friends with several more and for a brief period of time having a quartet of amazons acting as his bodyguards (even if two of them were pre-teens).
* {{Moe}}: [[invoked]] Chiyo is called this more than once.
* MomentKiller:
** Invoked when Pinkie ruins a touching moment between Ryoga and Fluttershy in chapter 85.
** And then again by Happosai in the next chapter.
* MoodWhiplash: Chapter 91 is a funny episode until [[spoiler: the last scene, where a mysterious alicorn, Discord's creation, betrays him, knocking him out.]]
** A minor case occurs in ch.104, with Momo apparently going Cupcakes..but it ends up being another nightmare of hers.
** A similar situation to the first example occurs in chapter 111, as Genma [[spoiler: accepts an alliance with Loofah and Discord to get rid of the ponies.]]
* MotorMouth: Momo's is weaponized on more than one occassion.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Cosmos realizes this as the Elements hit her.]]
* MythologyGag: During chapter 45, Momo has come to believe that the vice principal knows about the Spring of Drowned Man and wants to use it for evil purposes. This is a nod to the recent live action Ranma movie, where the villain is the vice principal.
* NakedFirstImpression: Akane is again the one on the receiving end, but instead of Ranma-kun, it's '''Ryoga''' and Fluttershy she sees in the tub.
* NoExceptYes: Momo on her fight with Azusa at the Anything Goes Martial Arts Take Out Race: "I wasn't throwing cake at her, I was assaulting her with cake."
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Principal Kuno gets whooped by ''every'' named Furinkan student in chapter 69.
** Happosai gets one at the end of chapter 75.
** Just about every time [[spoiler:Discord]] brainwashes one of the Nerima Wrecking Crew, he ends up doing it during one of these, each one worse than the last.

** Something that happened to Twilight involving hamsters in chapter 71.
** How Asuza got banned from Disney Stores, as mentioned in chapter 78.
* NoOntologicalInertia: Those Queen Cosmos ponified are returned to normal when she's beaten.

* {{Otaku}}: Shou and Emi. Also, Pinkie becomes one too.
* PainfulTransformation: Tsukiko's slow transformation [[spoiler:into a unicorn.]]
* {{Polyamory}}: Thanks to an ancient Amazon law called The Heaven and Earth Solution, Ranma has this. Doesn't mean he still doesn't have problems.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Belle delivers one to Kuno early on, unfortunately since it's Kuno he doesn't listen to it.
* RingOut: The way to win a Martial Art Rhythmic Gymnastics match. Kodachi had goons to move the ring under her, but they got whooped.
* TheRival: Azusa and Kodachi become these to Momo and Belle, respectively. Original characters are Ran, Hikaru, and Alex's rivals.
** [[VillainTeamUp Rival Team Up]]: Tsukiko unites the rivals in chapter 67; however, Ryoko(Rainbow's rival) is the mole of the group.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: The fic has these, but beneath them, readers have still enjoyed it. The Recut gets rid of many of the grammar errors.
* RabbitSeasonDuckSeason: Haruka pulls this on the bully.
* RunningGag: Pinkie breaking the fourth wall, Ranma being hailed as a god among men, Genma getting his ass kicked...plenty to go around.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When Discord returns from a vacation, right in the middle of Akane and Nabiki feuding, he runs for it.
* SecretArt: Magic is this to the Mahoukaze clan, which is why it bugs Tsukiko so much that Twilight can use it.
* SendInTheClones;
** [[spoiler: Discord]] creates these on the Mane Six as his first trick. He didn't know the Mane Six [[TookALevelInBadass took some badass levels]], though.
** [[spoiler: Done again in Chapter 63, only they're [[OppositeSexClone Opposite Sex Clones]]. They have free will, though, and rebel, but are taken out.]]
** [[spoiler: Discord tries this [[RuleOFThree AGAIN]], creating one "superclone." Queen Cosmos, said clone, stabs him in the back, though.]]
** [[spoiler: Discord does this AGAIN in ch.113, as he recreates the Mane Six's clones, along with clones of Ryoga, Ranma, and Shampoo with fake memories based on the fake memories trick Discord pulled as Discord's last trick to stop them from restoring Akane's memories.]]
* SharedUniverse: Both the cast of ''UruseiYatsura'' and ''InuYasha'' have appeared meaning that it's more of a {{Rumiko Takashi}}-verse rather than a pure Ranma-Verse.
* ShipperOnDeck: Rarity wants to see Chiyo hook up with Ryoga.
* ShoutOut: Due to many factors there's a shout out at least once a chapter. Here's a few:
** Chapter 1: "Hey, it's a Film/KungFuPanda!"
** Chapter 2: When Twilight introduces herself to the Tendos, the book of the same name is mentioned. From her tone, she hates it as much as many of us do.
** Chapter 3: Akane channels [[WebAnimation/DeathBattle Boomstick]] when she asks how Rainbow Dash could learn karate let alone master it.
** Chapter 5: Pinkie Pie has nightmares involving [[{{Fanfic/Cupcakes}} killing ponies and turning them into cupcakes.]]

** Chapter 10: The "Kuno is a Dope" T-shirt selling out in five minutes is a nod to a similar Simpsons gag.

** Chapter 12: During the Martial Arts Marathon, Ryoko's fans sing a version of the WesternAnimation/{{Sonic SatAM}} theme song. In the recut, Shou lampshades this.
** Chapter 16: When Belle grabs Pig-Ryoga and Kodachi grabs Kuno, Shou plays the Pokémon battle theme. The text even does a Pokémon-style description.
*** When discussing what weapons are valid, Momo asks if a steam roller is allowed, as a reference to another [[{{FanFic/TheKeyToASuccessfulInterview}} Ranma 1/2 fanfic.]]
*** Momo wonders if Kodachi would grab onto Belle's hair and force her to cut it, in reference to when Sakura cuts her hair in Manga/{{Naruto}}.
*** Momo uses a variation of [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Mikuru's catchphrase]] as one point during the commentary.

*** Also, Shou tries to sing the same song Konata butchered. Cue him getting booed off the stage.
** Chapter 44: Shou and Emi riff on the play ala StatlerAndWaldorf. They're even in a balcony.
*** During the riffs they let loose, there are references to ''AChristmasStory'', ''Film/RomeoMustDie'', ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
** Chapter 48: [[spoiler: Discord's]] attempt at a human disguise is Q, and ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fans soon mob him.
*** Emi quickly stops Shou from singing {{Chocolate Rain}}.
*** After [[spoiler: Discord returns from [[UruseiYatsura Tomobiki]]]] he is singing the first ending theme to UruseiYatsura.
** In chapter 53, [[spoiler: Discord]] creates clones of [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Mewtwo,]] [[Manga/OnePiece Buggy and Alvida,]] [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Zabuza,]] [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Gin Ichimaru,]] [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Ryoko Asakura,]] [[Franchise/SailorMoon and Viluy.]]
*** The plot gets started because of Pinkie watching episode 3 of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''.
*** The chapter title is a quote from ThatDudeInTheSuede
*** Arashi and Shingo play the VideoGame/PokemonTradingCardGame
*** Shou takes out his [[Franchise/KingdomHearts Keyblade replica]] while Momo takes out her [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Sode no Shirayuki repilca]]

** Ch.103 has Momo do a Pac-Man impression.
** Discord does a Phoenix Wright impression in chapter 114 in an attempt to invoke LoopholeAbuse.
* SneezeCut: Used a bit; the best case is in chapter 6, where Derpy's mentioned, and both times she drops her cargo on Spike. OUCH.
* SpottingTheThread: How Ranma and Twilight manage to [[spoiler: shake off the fake memories Discord gave them]] when they see Princess Luna in her normal form.
* TheStationsOfTheCanon: Some of ''Ranma 1/2''[='=]s stations are there, but what happens is different. The intros of Shampoo and Ryoga don't occur as per canon, since they follow Ranma and co. from the beginning. And as NakedFirstImpression shows, no P-chan disguise for Ryoga this time, so whenever he's in pig form he's just known as "Piggy-Ryoga".
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: At the Anything-Goes Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics tournament, Momo most defintiely did ''not'' see a unicorn and naked guy after Kodachi threw hot water at them.
-->'''Hana''': [[LampshadeHanging That's...oddly specific]].
* TakeAThirdOption: When writing Chapter 43, [[spoiler: Emma was wanting to write an ending where Akane and Sweetie Belle working together could make something eatable, but she also really wanted to write a scene where they create an EldritchAbomination which Luna would fight... She decided to do both, with the fight being a story Pinkie was telling.]]
** In universe example: Emi wasn't sure if she should dress up like Human!Yuki or Otaku!Yuki from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', but then she remembered that in the ''Manga/HaruhiChan'' manga there was a chapter featuring Human-Otaku!Yuki so that's what she dressed up like.
* TalkingWithSigns: Genma, as per canon. Ryoga also gets into it.
* TemptingFate:
** Momo says "It's not like [[spoiler: Discord's]] here"....And he appears.
** When Belle says she doesn't think Kodachi'd attack her...And cue Kodachi.
** Hikaru does this in chapter 111 with the classic line "what can go wrong?"
* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: Happens to Shining Armor in chapter 101, with the "tape" being letters from Twilight.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Miki, Ryoko, and Asuza think this when Tsukiko decides to confront Queen Cosmos. [[spoiler: They're right.]]
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: Why Ranma doesn't ask for help in getting the Moxibustion chart from the Mane Cast; his pride demands he do it on his own.
** A more comedic version occurs during chapter 111, as Ranma has to take a female panda on a date. ItMakesSenseInContext.
* ThoseTwoGuys: Emi and Shou, the two {{Otaku}}s, are this, usually [[DeadpanSnarker deadpan snarking]].
* ThrowingDownTheGauntlet: Pretty much how each of the OC rivals, [[AndZoidberg and Azusa]], is introduced.
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: Tomobiki is too [[spoiler: chaotic for Discord]] , reducing him to baby-style thumb sucking.
* TranslationConvention: Equestria's language allows instant translation.
* TookALevelInBadass: All of the Mane Six (Rainbow Dash happened to take several levels at once).
* TookALevelInKindness: Thanks to Fluttershy, Ryoga has forgiven Ranma, and is his best friend.
* {{Troll}}: Lampshaded; Shou and Emi play trolls during chapter 44 in the grand tradition of StatlerAndWaldorf. They're even in a balcony to complete the tribute.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: The robot the CMC make. As soon as they turn it on, it tries to kill them.
* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: The plan to defeat Queen Cosmos is this. [[spoiler: While Cosmos is distracted by those attacking her, the Mane 6 set up to use the Elements of Harmony.]]
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: the killer robot in ch. 78. Diana says "it feels like a Tuesday" when it shows up.
* VignetteEpisode: Chapter 78 is a series of tales of a normal day in Nerima.
* WeNeedADistraction: The fight with Queen Cosmos serves as a distarction while the plan to defeat Queen Cosmos is used.
* WorkOffTheDebt: The gang has to do this to save Momo from marrying Picolet. Momo manages to free herself from marrying Picolet anyway.
* WizardDuel: Hikaru vs. Tsukiko.
