Funny / My Brave Pony: Starfleet Magic
aka: My Little Unicorn

For moments that are unintentionally hilarious, go to this page.

  • Although the fic itself isn't really funny, the ponibooru thread is hilarious at times. For example:
    • The author mentioned he didn't have a name for the Grand Ruler, and a few people were offering genuine names while most were just trolling him. And then it was revealed:
    Stop hating on Celesto!
    • The others trolling the author with Rule 34 of the Grand Ruler.
    • The reaction to the petty Take That! against one of the forumites who tried to help him.
    • The implications about the author having a thing for Celestia.
      • Implications? The author himself said that "she makes him see sparkles before her eyes" and that he has a "harmless" crush on her. By harmless crush, I mean he had her get married to and have children with his Self Insert.
  • Although you need to be a little bit of a bastard to find it funny, the author himself. Just how deluded can he get?
    • Provided it isn't actually some brony being a Troll to everyone, that is.
      • The sad thing? He's really, really not kidding. A look through his ff.net archive has him doing this sort of thing since 2006.
  • Pretty much any MST or other mock of this author's work. Seriously, with such low standards, it's hard to fail at making it funnier or at least more tolerable than the original source by itself. With the "Starfleet" stories, it's like the author made the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fanfic equivalent of Sonichu.
  • There are sure to be some snarky moments on this fic's very trope page.
  • During the confrontation with Ace Ray in Part III, someone finally gets fed up with Rhymey's rhyming.
    Rhymey: There's no need to make a fuss / there is nothing he can do to us.
    Ace Ray: And you... will YOU STOP WITH THAT RHYMING!
  • Given Mykan's tendencies to steal material, referring to Starfleet as "original space ponies" in the first episode of Season 2.
  • The fact that the protagonists are seriously frightened (though partially due to a curse) by bad dreams in one chapter, to the point that they're afraid to have anything do with their hobbies for several hours. Contrast that with the Mane 6's reactions in the FiM episode Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?, where they were scared for only a few seconds when they woke up. Curse or no curse, it makes them look incredibly incompetent.
  • Though it was revealed to be a troll, the idea of an African preacher plagiarizing Mykan's work. The irony is delicious.
  • This little gem from one of the earlier chapters, which manages to be genuinely amusing:
    Brain: Eh... What should we say?
    Lightning: How about... "come and get us"?
    (the door slams behind the crew, causing them to scream)
    Lightning: Although a blood-curdling scream is just as good.
  • Some of Mykan's Rouge Angles of Satin moments are pretty hilarious, but one in particular stands out. Early on in the original fic, resident Generic Doomsday Villain Lord Titan has the "heroes" right where he wants them, and gets thwarted by the timely arrival of Dyno and Mite. When Lightning gets free, he shoots Titan a look of furry.note 
  • There's just something inherently amusing about how the author found Friendship is Magic too girly and childish and set out to write something with more appeal to a male audience, and wound up with something even more stereotypically girly and childish than the source material.
  • The thought of these strong and superior Space Ponies getting outmatched by untrained Diamond Dogs is nothing short of beautiful irony.
  • Another meta variant, but on Mykan's official artwork of Titan on DeviantArt, if you scroll down to the comments, you can find a beautiful little conversation with Mykan, of all people, playing the sane one for a little bit.
    Mykan: Titan revealed that he sold his soul, heart, and the lower half of his body. It's all smoke and magic under that robe of his.
    Deviant: Wait, so he doesn't have a schlong no longer? That would make me mad, too.
    Mykan: He SOLD IT... his lower half. He deliberately gave it up
    Deviant: Why did he give up his schlong
    Mykan: 1: Because it's disgusting 2: He wanted power 3: You're blocked for having THAT kind of attitude with the mentioning of gentiles
  • Mykan once actually gave a positive review to an episode of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Namely, "A Royal Problem". Just let that sink in...
    • His reasoning? Because "sisters bicker", "Twilight is bone-headed like I portray her" (even though she's more in denial that the two most powerful ponies in Equestria are fighting, and fretting over Starlight's own plot-driving mistake), "it coincidentally copies an episode of mine", "We get to learn more about Celestia" (even mentioning his "UNWANTED" crush on her), and "I've pictures Celestia evil". Careful Mykan, your ego is showing...
