''The Chaos Verse'' is a series of AlternateUniverse stories set in the same multiverse as the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' written by [=ItsfromPeople=]. Stories consist of thus far:

* ''[[http://itsfrompeople.deviantart.com/art/Discord-Not-one-of-a-kind-288483348 Discord: Not One Of A Kind]]'': An alternate Discord looks into the Truth and witnesses the BadFuture of Epilogue. [[HeelRealization Horrified]], he makes a choice that will change his life forever.
* ''[[http://itsfrompeople.deviantart.com/art/Fluttercruel-Chaos-Theory-Part-1-333323336 Fluttercruel: Chaos Theory]]'': After being saved from Oblivion by her father Discord, Fluttercruel gets used to her new-found powers and bonds with her father. However, soon, an evil dwelling in the subconscious rises, and the one who formally cast Equestria into a chaotic hell and his daughter may be the only ones that can stop it.
* ''[[http://itsfrompeople.deviantart.com/#/d5j63am Luna and Celestia: Unwanted Half]]'': A three part story that tells all about what Luna, Celestia and Nightmare Moon are like in this universe. Provides some handy {{Foreshadowing}} to Discord's story, as well as reveal the true identity of the story's BigBad.
* ''[[http://itsfrompeople.deviantart.com/art/Twilight-Puppet-or-Pony-335671854 Twilight: Puppet or Pony]]'': A story from the point of view of the Twilight construct Discord created. As she goes about day to day life in Discord's and Fluttercruel's world, she gradually comes to wonder why she has memories that don't match up with the world she sees around her.
* ''[[http://itsfrompeople.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5ldia1 Discord: Complete Existence]]'': The series reaches its GrandFinale as Discord and Fluttercruel, joined by some unexpected help, face off against the BigBad in a fight for the sake of Equestria.

Officially an AlternateUniverse, this world has been referenced several times in the main timeline and manages to successfully and realistically redeem Discord.

----
!!This series of fanfics contains examples of the following tropes:

* TheAgeless: Discord, Celestia and Luna.
* AIIsACrapshoot: A benevolent version. While not computers, the construct ponies Discord makes to populate his and Fluttercruel's world begin to become more life-like, instead of only following simple instructions like they did before. Discord is not certain why they began to develop this way, as they never had before, but it's implied Fluttercruel's presence may be causing it. They even begin to develop beyond being simple copies, with Construct!Rarity beginning to make chaotically themed dresses on her own, seemingly without any prodding. ''Twilight: Puppet Or Pony'' confirms the constructs have become fully sentient.
* [[ActionGirl Action Mare]]: Fluttercruel, the Chaos constructs, Celestia and Luna. The list is long.
* AffectionateNickname: As they begin to bond both Discord and Fluttercruel give each other these. She begins to call him "dad" while he starts to call her "my little princess." Subverted by the fact that she doesn't like this name at all but doesn't mind the new one Discord comes up with afterwards: [[spoiler: "my little angel."]]
* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]]'s death invokes this. In her final moments, she recovers her [[TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget lost memories]] and realizes just how in the wrong she was. Her last act is to reach out to [[spoiler: Celestia and Discord]] longingly before dying. [[spoiler: Luna]] even mourns for her afterwards.
* AlternateUniverse: To the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', and is part of the multiverse.
* AndThisIsFor: Discord does this during the fight with [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]], name dropping [[spoiler: the constructs of Rarity, Applejack and Rainbow Dash]], who all died earlier in the fight.
* [[ArmorPiercingQuestion Armor-Piercing Observation]]: Pony POV!Fluttershy manages to give one to Discord without even knowing that he is listening in to her conversation with Pony POV!Fluttercruel.
--> '''Fluttershy''': You're lonely.
* AssimilationBackfire: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia's]] attempt to absorb Discord and Fluttercruel in order to feed off their Chaos energy backfires and weakens her instead.
* TheAssimilator: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] can grow stronger by absorbing chaos energy, and thus tries to absorb Discord, Fluttercruel and the constructs. [[spoiler: Then she absorbs the Shadows of Oblivion in order to go OneWingedAngel.]]
* TheAtoner: Discord. Now that he's [[HeelRealization seen just how wrong his actions were]], he deeply regrets them.
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]], all the way.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:Nightmare Phobia is killed by Discord and Fluttercruel, but consumes all the Shadows of Oblivion to go OneWingedAngel and return.]]
* BadDreams: Discord has nightmares about the Dark World.
** The BigBad also creates those whenever she is around.
* BatmanGambit: Discord [[spoiler: and the Alicorns]] use this tactic a few times in the final battle.
* BerserkButton: Discord becomes much calmer and balanced when he is together with his daughter. But when she is in [[PapaWolf danger…]]
* BigBad: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia, Luna's EnemyWithout.]] Not only is she the mane antagonist of the story [[spoiler:she was responsible for many of the events of the show by increasing the fears of various ponies, including the mane six.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: Discord when he saves his daughter.
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Nightmare Phobia is destroyed, and Discord and Fluttercruel make peace with the Princesses, but the Construct Ponies are all dead, leaving Discord and Fluttercruel alone in Limbo once again. Though the Constructs also managed to gain their own souls and earn a place in Pony Heaven and Fluttercruel manages to reconcile with Fluttershy with Luna's help. The last scene has Discord begin recreating Chaos, with Celestia offering her and Luna's help.]]
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: Discord never learned to fly without his telekinesis and learns from Fluttercruel. [[spoiler:This helps him conserve power while battling Nightmare Phobia.]]
* BreakHerHeartToSaveHer: [[spoiler:Fluttercruel]] does this to [[spoiler:Fluttershy]] in order to save her from the nightmare the BigBad uses to trick her [[spoiler:mother into suicide.]]
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:Fluttercruel breaks down crying after being forced to reveal her true form to Fluttershy to scare her out of the nightmare Nightmare Phobia put her in, ruining Fluttercruel's only chance to get to know her mother.]]
* BreakTheHaughty: Happens nearly to Discord in the very beginning.
* BreatherEpisode: ''Twilight: Puppet or Pony'' is mostly a lighthearted story.
* BrickJoke: The RunningGag of Fluttercruel dropping a bucket of water on Discord's head is used to wake him up after the FinalBattle with [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]].
* TheCameo: [[spoiler: Mortis from the [[Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries original fic]] appears at the end, guiding the spirits of the Construct Mane Cast to Pony Heaven after allowing them to remain and watch the FinalBattle.]]
* CainAndAbel: Celestia and Luna, [[spoiler: technically Discord is another Cain.]]
* ChaosIsEvil: Subverted once Discord performs his HeelFaceTurn. He makes an entire world based on Chaos and the inhabitants are actually quite noble.

** All of Construct!Twilight's lessons on chaos magic come in handy for Fluttercruel during the FinalBattle.
** The mirror Discord creates to look into other worlds plays a role in the FinalBattle.
** The letter Discord had written for [[spoiler: Celestia and Luna]] as a plan B ends up having a message for Fluttercruel (who he figured would take a peek). Said message ends up being key to Fluttercruel [[spoiler: figuring out how to fight back and defeat Nightmare Phobia]].
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler: Luna and Celestia]] have just a very short scene in ''Fluttercruel: Chaos Theory'' but become much more important later on.
* ClippedWingAngel: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia's]] final form after being crippled by Fluttercruel [[spoiler: subverts this as she is far from harmless.]]
* [[ClonesArePeopleToo Clones Are Ponies Too]]: Discord assures Construct!Twilight that even though she was created from chaos, she's still as real as the original Twilight.
* CombinedEnergyAttack: [[spoiler: Celestia, Luna and Discord use the Elements of Harmony to tap into the harmony of every living being in Equestria in order to destroy Nightmare Phobia.]]

* CrossThrough: Discord's viewing of Dark World eventually happened in the main series, as did Liarjack's viewing of this world happen in this one. [[spoiler:At the end, Discord witnesses Dark World!Twilight's redemption in the mirror.]]
* DarkestHour: The latter end of ''Discord: Complete Existence'', as [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] goes OneWingedAngel[[spoiler: by absorbing all the Shadows of Oblivion, overpowers Discord and the Princesses]], and starts emerging into the real world, causing every living thing to suffer extreme pain.
** It is hinted that the mere presence of the BigBad there is [[spoiler: slowly killing all living beings in the real world.]]
* DarkIsNotEvil: Chaos is not evil and Discord's WorldOfChaos is capable of functioning perfectly and even supporting life when thought is put into it.
* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia becomes more insane over time and loses most of her memories.]]
** [[spoiler: Her memories are fully restored [[DyingAsYourself in her last moments before dying]] after being blasted by the Elements of Harmony.]]
* DeathGlare: Discord towards the BigBad [[spoiler: when she had almost killed his daughter]].
* DefiantToTheEnd: All the constructs when fighting [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]].
* DespairEventHorizon: Discord very nearly crosses this when he sees the Dark World ruled by another version of himself. He is pulled back by [[spoiler: Twilight Tragedy who begins her own HeelFaceTurn.]]
** [[spoiler:Fluttercruel comes close during the DarkestHour.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Discord, Fluttercruel, [[spoiler:Celestia and Luna]] in the GrandFinale against the BigBad.
* DivineParentage: Fluttercruel is, like her main series counterpart, the daughter of the God of Chaos. Unlike her, however, she receives an infusion of chaos, giving her access to Discord's powers, as well as turning her into a [[MixAndMatchCritters Mix And Match Critter]].
* DreamWeaver: Luna [[spoiler: and Nightmare Phobia as well]]
* DrivenToSuicide: The BigBad tries to do this to [[spoiler:Fluttershy. Thankfully, Fluttercruel saves her.]]
* EarnYourHappyEnding: All main characters go through hell.
* EldritchAbomination: Between her physical appearance and the fact that she exists solely in the collective subconscious of ponykind, [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] definitely qualifies.
** [[spoiler:And then she absorbs all the Shadows in Oblivion and goes OneWingedAngel.]]
* EmergencyTransformation: Fluttercruel was severely injured while in Oblivion, forcing Discord to infuse her with chaos to save her. As a result, she becomes a [[HalfHumanHybrid Half Pony Hybrid]] with similar powers to him.
* EmotionEater: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] feeds on the fears of ponies, while at the same time is able to increase said fears in order to manipulate them.
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler: Celestia and Luna enter the void to help Discord and Fluttercruel fight Nightmare Phobia. By the time the fight's over, the Princesses have accepted Discord's HeelFaceTurn, and his friendship.]]
* EnemyWithout: The BigBad is one to [[spoiler:Luna; she's Nightmare Moon's essence granted life of its own.]]
* EurekaMoment: Discord when he realises how he could raise his daughter to not repeat his mistakes or the mistakes of the other versions of Fluttercruel.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Even before his HeelFaceTurn Discord is shocked and terrified how Dark World!Discord runs his world.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] fails to understand how ponies are able to reject their fear (thus freeing them from her control).
* FakeMemories: As the mind of the BigBad falls apart she tries to fill the gaps with what Discord once told her.
* FateWorseThanDeath: [[spoiler: In one of the worlds Celestia sees in Truth Twilight Tragedy gives one to [[BadFuture Dark World!Discord]] while thinking that is exactly what he would want her to do.]]
* FeedItABomb: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] is tricked into devouring what happens when [[WorldWreckingWave Discord's easier way to create chaos backfires.]]
* {{Foil}}: Fluttercruel is this to both her alternate selves from the original series. She's much more well adjusted than her main timeline counterpart and has a good relationship with Discord where that version truly hates him. She also genuinely seeks to have a good relationship with her mother, where the main Fluttercruel originally wanted anything but and only gradually learned to love her mother. On the flip side, she's not AxCrazy like Dark World Fluttercruel. This likely comes down to the fact This Fluttercruel was raised by a ''good'' Discord instead of Fluttershy or an evil Discord.
** Fluttercruel does share a few similarities with her alternate selves as well. She has her very own CruelToBeKind moment when she [[spoiler: has to shock her mother out of the trap the BigBad set for her]] and in the FinalBattle Fluttercruel shows that she is not only very able to fight viciously against the BigBad but she is also able to bear the cruel events that she experiences in this battle, especially [[spoiler: the death of all the chaos constructs.]]
** Not to mention what's developed recently in the Dark World. Both Fluttercruels have an extreme devotion to their fathers, and both learned to use chaos after getting some of his power. The difference being that Chaos Verse!Fluttercruel learned to channel that chaotic power for the sake of Equestria, while Dark World!Cruel ended up [[spoiler: becoming a Draconequus who tried to destroy reality in order to protect her dad.]]
* ForbiddenChekhovsGun: Discord's "easier way" to create chaos. [[spoiler:In the battle against Nightmare Phobia]] it is shown how dangerous it can be. [[spoiler:Fluttercruel manages to use it correctly to light the DarkestHour and earn her Cutie Mark.]]
* FutureMeScaresMe: Discord sees [[BadFuture Dark World!Discord]] in the Truth and is genuinely horrified, [[HeelRealization resulting in him realizing what a monster]] he himself had become. Fluttercruel has the same reaction when she sees [[BadFuture Dark World!Fluttercruel]] and realizes what she ''could'' become.
** Celestia also sees a version of herself that rules Equestria as a dictator, crushing all opposition.
* GetOutOfJailFreeCard: Subverted. [[spoiler:The Princesses accept that Discord [[HeelFaceTurn has been redeemed]], but also that that doesn't absolve him of his crimes, and he agrees and will stay a thousand years imprisoned. But he doesn't mind, since he'll have Fluttercruel (who ''is'' permitted to leave into the Subconscious with Luna's guidance) and be able to recreate Chaos with the Princesses' help.]]
* GoodFeelsGood: Discord and eventually Fluttercruel discover this.
* GoodHurtsEvil: [[spoiler:Being powered by Fear, Nightmare Phobia can be harmed by Laughter based attacks.]]
* GoodIsNotSoft: Discord and Fluttercruel both [[TookALevelInKindness gain several levels in kindness]] yet are still very much able to fight against the BigBad.
* {{Good Parent|s}}: Discord towards Fluttercruel.
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler: All the constructs of the Mane 6 during the fight with Nightmare Phobia.]]
* [[HalfHumanHybrid Half Pony Hybrid]]: While she originally qualified, Fluttercruel is [[EmergencyTransformation infused with Discord's chaos, transforming her into a more literal example.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Discord
** [[spoiler: Also Pandemonium/Pandora in one alternate universe.]]
* HeelRealization: Discord has one upon witnessing [[FutureMeScaresMe his actions in]] [[BadFuture the Dark World]] and realizing he was no different.
* HeroicSacrifice: All the constructs in the copy of Ponyville, except those of the Mane Six, allow themselves to be absorbed by Discord and Fluttercruel in order to give them the strength to fight [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]].
** In the end [[spoiler:Discord]] is also ready to make one but instead it triggers the above mentioned CombinedEnergyAttack.
* HopeSpot: We get two close together in ''Discord: Complete Existence''. First, [[spoiler: Discord and Fluttercruel seemingly defeat Nightmare Phobia, only for her to absorb the Shadows of Oblivion and go OneWingedAngel]]. Shortly after that, [[spoiler: they and the Princesses destroy her second OWA form, only for it to turn out to be a puppet of her ''true'' form]].
* IdeaBulb: Discord has one of these when Construct!Twilight says she wants a companion (like Spike to the original Twilight). It promptly grows wings and flutters off.
* IronicEcho: "A weighty choice is yours to make, the right selection or a big mistake", this time said by Discord [[spoiler:to himself when having to choose between letting Nightmare Phobia kill Fluttershy and risking Fluttercruel's life to save her.]]
** "Make sense? Oh what fun is there in making sense?" Twice, first when [[spoiler:Fluttercruel says it to scare Fluttershy out of her nightmare, the context making it a tear jerking]] and second [[spoiler:when Discord realizes he's a Bearer of the Elements of Loyalty and Laughter.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: The stories are pretty lighthearted until the BigBad shows up and tries to drive [[spoiler:Fluttershy]] to suicide.
* LikeABadassOutOfHell: Discord goes to Oblivion in 'Not One Of A Kind' to save Fluttercruel and makes it back out again.
** [[spoiler:Nightmare Phobia is killed by Discord and Fluttercruel and goes to Oblivion, but pretty much ''eats'' the Shadows of Oblivion to go OneWingedAngel and escapes.]]
* LoveRedeems: Both Discord and Fluttercruel not only discover that GoodFeelsGood but their familial love for each other motivates them to take the next step. Discord unseals Celestia's and Luna's full power to make up for what he had done to them in the past,[[spoiler: which allows the two Alicorns to come to his aid in the FinalBattle.]] Fluttercruel starts to care more for her mother, [[spoiler: soon she cares enough for Fluttershy to come to her help when the BigBad is trying to kill her.]]
* MadeOfExplodium: Chaos constructs will spontaneously explode if their creator loses their focus, at least if they're inexperienced. Discord doesn't seem to have this problem anymore while Fluttercruel has it when she first starts using her new-found power.
** [[spoiler:This comes in handy fighting Nightmare Phobia, as embedding something in her body then letting it explode causes considerably more damage with the bonus of making her incapable of absorbing it.]]
* MeaningfulName: Celestia, Luna and Discord of course. [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia is another example.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Discord's reaction to his HeelRealization.
* NighInvulnerability: Thanks to a HealingFactor and shield protected core, [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] has this even ''before'' she goes OneWingedAngel and becomes a full fledged EldritchAbomination. She does have ''one'' weakness, however; eventually she'll run out of energy and her HealingFactor slows down.
* OmnicidalManiac: What [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] becomes after her VillainousBreakdown.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] goes through several stages of this [[spoiler:after absorbing all the shadows in Oblivion]]. [[spoiler: First, she turns into a giant hydra. When that's not sufficient, she turns into a literal ShadowArchetype of Princess Luna. When that's defeated, it turns out both forms were just puppets of her ''true'' form, a sentient, all consuming void.]]
* PapaWolf: Discord becomes this towards Fluttercruel after adopting her.
--> '''Discord''': [[PunctuatedPounding Get away…from her…]][[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch you beotch…]]
* [[HumanMomNonHumanDad Pony Mom, Non-Pony Dad]]: Fluttercruel. She sees Discord as her father and Fluttershy as her mother. This is what causes her to [[spoiler: save her mother from Nightmare Phobia.]]
* PowerAtAPrice: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] becomes more powerful the more [[spoiler:fears she absorbs but she also loses her memories of her former life as this goes on and becomes more and more insane.]]
** She also manages to go OneWingedAngel by [[spoiler: absorbing the Shadows of Oblivion]]. While this is a ''massive'' power boost, the fact that she relied on [[spoiler: the Nothingness]] means that when she's defeated, she ends up [[spoiler: dragged into Oblivion permanently]].
* PowerUpgradingDeformation: The Big Bad becomes more monstrous both in appearance and mind as the story goes on.
* PrehensileHair: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]]'s second OneWingedAngel form has this as a primary weapon.
* ProphecyTwist: Discord sees [[spoiler: Fluttershy]] falling to her death and hears her scream. This does happen. [[spoiler: Thanks to Fluttercruel, the Pegasus awakens screaming and is able to save herself.]]
* RecursiveFanfiction: Started out as a single one-shot of this, which was recognized as official by Alexwarlorn, before spinning off into its own verse.
* RevengeByProxy: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] wants to hurt Celestia by targeting those close to her.
** And then she decides to just [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the whole world]] and make her watch instead.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: An alternate version of Destruction goes on one of these against his family after he kills and eats Discord when the latter tries to do the same to him. To make matters worse, he's now just as powerful as Discord is...
* SadisticChoice: Discord realises that he is trapped in one when [[spoiler: he has to choose between letting Nightmare Phobia kill Fluttershy or risk Fluttercruel's life to save her.]]
* SanitySlippage: Luna (though she gets better) [[spoiler:and Nightmare Phobia (who doesn't)]].
* ScareEmStraight: Discord experiences this in the beginning but without some well placed words of Twilight Tragedy this would have ended with him in his own DespairEventHorizon.
** He later uses this as a teaching method for Fluttercruel to show her both the best and the worst she could be.
* SealedEvilInACan: Discord starts off as this, but gradually turns into SealedGoodInACan after his HeelFaceTurn.
* SiblingTeam: Celestia and Luna [[spoiler: and Discord]] in the final battle.
* ShapeshifterGuiltTrip: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] tries to manipulate Fluttershy in the form of her friends.
* SherlockScan: Discord can do this.
* ShoutOut: Several to the Pony POV Series happen over the course of the entire story:
** Discord sees the [[BadFuture Dark World]] and the Gaia arc of the main Pony POV timeline in Truth.
** Discord finds Fluttercruel trapped [[spoiler: and dying]] in Oblivion.
** Fluttercruel has a similar train of thoughts to her Pony POV counterpart as she names herself.
** Discord knows about the identity issues of the Pony POV version of Fluttercruel and the sadism of Fluttercruel from the Dark World and tries to avert this with his own daughter. [[spoiler: He succeeds.]]
** Similar to her Pony POV counterpart Fluttercruel can see famous dark fics like Cupcakes in her dreams. At first she just laughs it off but this changes once she realises that she could end up like that Pinkie Pie as well.
** Discord has nightmares of the Dark World, seeing the scene were Twilight and Applejack report back from the slaughter at Ponyville.
** The scene between Discord and Fluttercruel shown in Liarjack's journey through Truth in the Pony POV Series happens here as well.
** Discord's Nightmare Night costume is a reference to the shape Discord from the Pony POV Series took while he was corrupting [[spoiler: Diamond Tiara]] and Fluttercruel's costume is [[spoiler: either Pony POV or Dark World Fluttercruel.]] She notices the irony.
** Fluttercruel reveals herself while saying "Make sense? Oh, what fun is there in making sense?"
** In Truth Celestia sees Shining Armor marrying Pandora instead of Cadence, [[spoiler: who died a long time ago in the war.]] Anarchy and Strife are there as guests as well.
** Celestia also sees a continuation of a story written by Kendell2 were Celestia's and Luna's roles are reversed.
** In another vision Twilight Tragedy ends up replacing Discord as the ruler of chaos in the Dark World. Somehow it manages to be slightly less horrible compared to his rule.
** In another vision the Elements manage to defeat Celestia's fallen brother Morning Star with the Fires of Friendship.
** Finally Celestia does see how her Pony POV counterpart lived and eventually ended up in Equestria.
** Fluttercruel's first chaos constructs take the shape of weapons similar to what the Element of Cruelty does. There is however one important difference with [[MadeOfExplodium these weapons.]]
* ShutUpHannibal: [[spoiler: Chaos Verse Discord gives one to Epilogue Discord simply by thanking him for showing him the end of his dark ambitions and saying that by extension, HE saved Fluttercruel from Oblivion.]]

* TheDeadHaveNames: [[spoiler:The Construct Mane Cast are given a memorial as the first thing Discord makes when recreating Chaos, followed by a pillar inscribed with all the deceased Constructs who gave their lives defeating Phobia.]]
* ThisCannotBe: One of the worlds Celestia sees in the Truth is [[{{Satan}} Morning Star]] nearly defeating the Mane 6, only for them to tap into the Fire of Friendship and destroy him. Naturally, this is his response and last words.

* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: The perspective of the BigBad until [[spoiler: her final moments.]]

* TranquilFury: Discord when Fluttercruel's life is in danger, the chaos constructs have a similar reaction.
* UndyingLoyalty: The constructs -- especially those of the Mane 6 -- to Discord and Fluttercruel.
* VillainousBreakdown: By the time [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] goes OneWingedAngel, she's completely lost what little sanity she had left and turned into an OmnicidalManiac. [[spoiler:When the FinalBattle begins to turn against her, she completely falls apart, going from threats to ''begging for her life'', trying to convince the heroes to spare her life.]]
* VillainEpisode: Most of the third part of ''Luna and Celestia: Unwanted Half'' is written out of the perspective of the BigBad
* VillainTeamUp: Subverted. Not only has Discord long since had a HeelFaceTurn by the time [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] offers an alliance, but it's implied she knew he wouldn't accept anyway.
* VillainsWantMercy: [[spoiler:Nightmare Phobia begs for her life when the tide is turned against her. The heroes are GenreSavvy enough to know it's a trick and she'll just stab them in the back if they do.]]

* WorldHealingWave: The Elements of Harmony
* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: Fluttercruel gives one before [[spoiler: using chaos to fight back against Nightmare Phobia and gaining her own cutie mark.]]
* WorldOfChaos: Discord creates one in limbo, but this time much more structured and not as nonsensical, while still chaotic. It even has its own inhabitants. It helps this one actually had thought put into it so it'd be inhabitable.
* WorldWreckingWave: Discord is able to do this. [[spoiler: It is actually the incomplete version of this ability, the perfect use of this is not destructive at all.]]
* YouAreNotAlone: It happens several times.
* YearInsideHourOutside: Time inside the limbo that is Discord's prison, time moves much more slowly than it does in the real world. An exact amount of time isn't given, however.
** This caused Celestia and Luna to be too late to [[spoiler:help in the battle against the BigBad]] but they are just in time for [[spoiler:Nightmare Phobia's OneWingedAngel form]]
* YourWorstNightmare: [[spoiler: Nightmare Phobia]] is able to enter a pony's dreams and cast them into their worst nightmare. [[spoiler: This is how she almost drives Fluttershy to suicide]]. She tries to do this to Discord during the FinalBattle as well, but he sees right through it.
