DASH OFFA platformer game by Distoorted/ Bronies United. Can be found here.
Innocent Luna GamenoteA game made with similar graphics as to the Luna Game, but was purposely made different from series; created by DialgaBrite. It has some strong references to the series, but has a happy ending, and has actual levels to play and bosses to fight. Can be auto-downloaded here.
- Crossover: With just about everythingnote
- Follow the Books? (something like that)
- Reconstruction: Of the creepypasta series.
- Shoutout: To the creepypasta game:Paul Watson: For whaling, the end is neigh!
Luna Vs. FunA simple, arcade-style game based on Luna's spider-throwing game scene from the season 2 episode "Luna Eclipsed". The game can be played here.
Minty Fresh AdventureA platformer starring Colgate, who wishes to change her Cutie Mark. Zecora sends her off on a Fetch Quest for a vital potion ingredient. Can be found here.
- Baleful Polymorph: Touching Poison Joke turns Colgate into a tube of toothpaste.
- Bears are Bad News: You have to fight an Ursa Minor and later a Major.
- Continuity Nod: One achievement is called "I Didn't Put These in My Bag".
- Damsel in Distress: Minty.
- Dem Bones: Skeleton ponies.
- Double Jump: You get it by reading a Double Jump Manual from Trixie's shop.Trixie: I don't know why it took a whole book to say that.
- Flipping the Table: Trixie does this twice with the desks she uses for her PNN reports.
- Healing Potion-Panacea: The Carton of Milk from Trixie's shop restores you to full health and cures Poison Joke.
- Honest John's Dealership: Trixie runs a shop from an airship above the Everfree Forest. Since a PNN news report mentioned a 10,000 bit bounty on her, it's likely the items and upgrades she sells aren't exactly legal.
- Hyperactive Metabolism: Colgate can recover health and mana by eating red and green apples, respectively.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Kind of. Colgate wants to change her cutie mark so she can have the rather mundane talent of dentistry, rather than having the power to manipulate the flow of time. Unless the ability to manipulate time is a moderately common talent among ponies, this can appear to be an exaggerated or even parodied version of this trope.
- Improbable Weapon User: Colgate's giant toothbrush.
- Mythology Gag: A hidden area in the cave near the entrance holds a statue of Megan. Interacting with it makes your meter recharge instantaneously for the rest of the game.
- Minty shows up in a sidequest where you rescue her from a hidden prison. It's in the pit next to the sock.
- Regenerating Mana: The Green Crystal from Trixie's shop regenerates the magic meter slowly, while the blessing from the Statue of Megan restores your mana almost instantaneously.
- Reptiles Are Abhorrent: The Troglodytes in the Cave of Wisdom.
- Shout-Out: Colgate's Time Stands Still ability? It's Kabuto's Clock Up ability. Complete with the sound effects.
- And if you jump on the skeleton ponies, they collapse, but you do no damage and it reassembles, just like a certain skeleton turtle. Easy to miss, since one does not think of jumping on a skeleton pony that throws projectiles. (but jumping on those breaks them, so this is actually good point grinding.)
- One achievement is "Fu- Forget You Ah Can Eat All These Apples".
- Another achievement is "No Poet's Society".
- The news segment from Trixie's shop is a parody of the news sequences from Conquest Of The Crystal Palace, which were viewable at that game's shops.
- Taken for Granite: Courtesy of basilisks.
- Time Paradox: Derpy gives Colgate a letter from herself in the future.
- Time Stands Still: One of Colgate's abilities, which also grants her invincibility. Has a horrendous startup time though.
- What the Hell, Player?: If you knock on Zecora's door too many times, she will refuse to entertain you.
Minuette Vs. TardinessA spinoff of Minty Fresh Adventure starring Minuette, a Crystal Pony who works as the receptionist at Colgate's dental clinic and whose special talent is punctuality. In this game, a villainous Dream Weaver makes Minuette live out her worst nightmare: being late. The game is a speed-based platformer where Minuette must reach the goal at the end of an obstacle course...often in less than a few seconds. The game can be found here.
- Youkai: The King of Nightmares is based off of a baku.
- Shout-Out: To Catherine, when Minuette first encounters the sheep obstacle. She promptly comments that "Good kids shouldn't get that reference."
My Little Pony RPG: The Elements of HarmonyExactly What It Says on the Tin. A My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Role-Playing Game that is a parody of the first Final Fantasy I game. Except you get to play as six characters, each with their own unique abilities.The game doesn't get going immediately: in the tradition of classic RPGs such as Pokémon and Golden Sun, there's several mundane quests before you reach your first fight. However, once you get into the story, there's a lot here: you're gradually sucked in as you explore a massive world to recover the Elements of Harmony.Since this game is a parody of Final Fantasy I, some gameplay tropes that apply there apply here as well.
- Acronym and Abbreviation Overload: Being a parody of Final Fantasy I, this applies for all skills and items, though some enemy abilities are exempt to this rule.
- Adaptation Name Change: Likely to keep with the My Little Pony theme, most some healing items ahave their names changed into food names. Potion becomes RED (apple), Hi-Potion becomes GRE(e)N (apple), X-Potion becomes PIE, and Phoenix Down becomes CAKE (which is also a skill Pinkie Pie can cast, but its effect is akin to a HEAL spell).
- Alternate Universe: If the wide world isn't enough to show a clear difference… As the game was released in 2012, it also disregards any canon events in the show that happen after.
- Boss in Mook Clothing: The lesser Dragons all over the dungeons in Equestria, the Hydra in Froggy Bottom Bog, the Malboro in the Everfree Forest [[and Secret Cave]], Behemoths in the Secret Cave…
- Chest Monster: The Great Malboro in the Everfree Forest is found in one of two chests, the other containing a HEAL (Elixir). Even with the appropriate defenses, its Bad Breath and other skills can induce Rocks Fall, Everypony Dies.
- Collection Sidequest: By collecting ten of Derpy Hooves's Muffins scattered all over Equestria, you earn from her a map leading to a Bonus Dungeon called the Secret Cave.
- Easy Levels, Hard Bosses
- Flunky Boss: Basil (the red dragon from the episode "Dragonshy" and the stand-in for Marilith/Kary from Final Fantasy I) comes with three Supporters (who serve as healers). Even if you knock them down (and you'll need to since the Supporter's CUR4 spell heals its target of all HP), Basil has an ability called RESS[note]Pinkie Pie gets this one too once you reach Luna's Castle[/note] that will revive all three of them.
- The Fair Folk: Replacing FFI's Lufenians are the fairies (which are curiously also enemies early-game).
- Fake Princess: Queen Chrysalis posing as Princess Celestia, being the parallel to Astos from the original game.
- Instant Expert: Daring Do (stand-in for Dr. Unne) to the most extreme degree. Once given the SLAB, she instantly completely figures out how to speak the foreign language in it that nopony outside of said culture could understand. She then manages to confer the exact same level of mastery to the Mane Six in just as much time. Lampshaded by the party after the quick language lesson.
- Let's Play: by GWFanSoftcoreBrony.
- Monsters Everywhere: Like FFI. Except towns, of course.
- Reused Character Design: Kraken makes an appearance here as the same boss from Final Fantasy I (with a different motive, of course), unlike Lich (who is replaced by Death) Maralith/Kary (who is replaced by Basil) and Tiamat (who is replaced by Gilda).
- Rival Turned Evil: Gilda, from simple Jerkass to advocator of the superiority of griffon-kind and murderer of plenty of ponies (off-screen).
- There Are No Tents
- Unique Enemy: Applies only for MLP-themed monsters. Hydra only in Froggy Bottom Bog, Timberwolves in Everfree Forest, and Shadowbolts in Luna's Castle.
- Video Game Characters: Naturally, given the nature of this game, the Mane Six fall under these.
- Black Mage: Twilight Sparkle, with additional spells for buffs and debuffs.
- The Beastmistress: Fluttershy, natch. She also has her signature Stare as a starting, which has a chance of stunning opponents. Has no parallels to any of Final Fantasy I's starting classes, and is also basically a Master of None.
- Lightning Bruiser: To an extent, Rainbow Dash. She's also somehow an archer. Parallel to the Ninja.
- Mighty Glacier: Applejack. No spells/skills like the others, but her high attack and vitality make up for that. She also has the lowest speed of all the characters. Parallel to the Fighter/Knight or Monk/Black Belt.
- Quirky Bard: Pinkie Pie, who is a fairly average physical fighter otherwise. Her songs have a wide array of effects. Sort-of parallel to the Red Mage.
- White Mage: Rarity, by virtue of being the only other unicorn in the party.

GO FASTA short button basher "racing" game. You play as the fluffly pony Fluffle Puff as she races against Rainbow Dash to attain the title of the fastest pony in all of Equestria. The goal of the game is to fill the meter while at the same time preventing Rainbow Dash from reaching the other side of the screen which will cause a game over. The game also features "phases" where she's "upgraded" the farther into the race the player gets. There are also Multiple Endings, most of which are based on where you've gotten a game over. Also guest starring Dan from the Dan Vs. series. The game is created by Mixermike 622 who known for his crossover Ask Tumblr Dan Vs. FiM. The game can be found in his deviantART account and at Newgrounds.
- Amusing Injuries: Some of the endings you'll get are these.
- Button Mashing: You use the space bar to push Fluffle Puff forward. The faster you tap, the faster she goes.
- Earn Your Happy Ending: The true ending of the game when you manage to win.
- Multiple Endings
- Nintendo Hard: Despite its simplicity, this game can be pretty hard. Many who've played it have reported either their arms or hands hurting from tapping or their keyboard's space bar braking.
- Non-Standard Game Over: You get a different ending and a game over/try again screen depending where you lost the game.
- Original Flavour: The game's art design emulates the cartoon its based of off are so accurate you could've sworn it was taken directly from the show itself. Even Dan.
- The Rival: Rainbow Dash
- Shout-Out: OH SHAZBOT!

- Theme Music Power-Up: The game's background music will change into something fast-paced when you get to the final phase.

- Call a Hit Point a "Smeerp": Whooves calls cupcakes "provisions" for whatever reason.

Super Derpy: Muffin AttackAn Arcade Game featuring Derpy Hooves as main playable character, in quest to save Equestria from attack of muffinzombies - evil creatures made by Discord, who's just about to wake up once again. Based mostly on what's visible in The Return of Harmony: Part 2 episode. Early pre-alpha called "Development Preview" is already available at .
Pony TacticsA Turn-Based Strategy game opposing the Solar Empire to the Lunar Republic. It currently features the Mane 6, Nurse Redheart and Snowflake as unit types, which are “bought” before the battle. Has an in-game chat. Players are waiting for you here.
- Area of Effect: Twilight Sparkle possesses a “long range magic splash attack”. It is just as deadly as it sounds.
- Boring, but Practical: Nurse Redheart has been a much awaited and appreciated addition to the game, despite having no attack of her own.
- Difficult but Awesome: The Stare™, if you can get close enough.
- Fighter, Mage, Thief: Applejack, Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash respectively, with Pinkie Pie, Rarity and Fluttershy as a cheaper alternative.
- Friendly Sniper: Rarity. Surprisingly, she is even more dangerous at close range.
- Glass Cannon: Twilight Sparkle, Rarity and Fluttershy. Twili in particular is a very squishy unicorn indeed.
- Improbable Weapon User: Let’s see… apples, cake, rain clouds, tornadoes, gems, sewing machines, Angel bunny and all the stuff in Pinkie’s party cannon. Welcome to Equestria!
- Jack-of-All-Stats: Or is it the Applejack of all stats?
- Mighty Glacier: The main appeal of Snowflake.
- One-Hit Polykill: Rainbow Dash’s “hurricane attack” moves through 4 squares and can hurt as many ponies. Trees, rocks and walls do not stop it either.
- Teleporters and Transporters: Aside from her magic blast of doom, Twilight used to have a weaker attack where she would slap a nearby pony with a book. It was almost completely useless. An update replaced this by the character’s signature teleportation. While it could have been made quite messy, the truth is that it doesn’t deal any damage.
- Trade Snark: The Stare™.
- White Mage: Nurse Redheart. She can refill another unit’s Life Meter or push that unit’s Mana Meter beyond its usual capacity.
- Zerg Rush: By buying only Pinkie Pies and Fluttershies, a player can start with an army of 16 ponies.
Twilight vs WalkingFrom the creator of Story of the Blanks comes a pony take on QWOP. Available here.
Octavia in The Underworld's CelloAn in-development first-person point-and-click adventure game, inspired by the ICOM/Kemco adventure series in general and Uninvited in particular. Octavia and Vinyl Scratch get lost on the way to a Nightmare Night party and find themselves trapped in a Haunted House. A demo version is available here. There is also a demo for Vinyl Scratch.
- And Now for Someone Completely Different: The most recent demo has you control Vinyl Scratch, though the most you can do at the moment is complete as many side quests as you can.
- Big Boo's Haunt/Haunted House: The entire game.
- Bloodier and Gorier: You can get stabbed in the forehead◊, what more needs to be said?
- Break the Cutie: Octavia witnesses death and decay up close, has to deal with beings who are out to kill her, and has to eventually take a life to save her own.
- Cowardly Lion: Octavia is quick to wanting to leave, but presses on if it means saving Vinyl's life.
- Driven to Madness: A bundle of ghosts will attempt to talk down Octavia's sanity to break her into submitting. Migrated by using items to calm her down (though only wine can accomplish this), or anytime she returns to the sanctuary room.
- Have a Nice Death: Oh boy. That stab in the forehead is one of the least gruesome deaths in the game. In the current demo, deaths include but are not limited to: getting eaten by a Timberwolf, getting eaten by zombies, getting stung by bees, failing to make potions and causing an explosion, and having flowers bloom inside your body and grow out of the orifices on your face. And the game text describes them in all their gruesome details, and the visual of Octavia's face makes you see them in all their gruesome glory.
- If you have a mind dark enough to be curious, here is the "Wall of Death" depicting just about every death in the demo (and a few not yet in the demo):
- Hearing Voices: Octavia gets antagonized by a bunch of ghosts attempting to get her to break down her sanity the longer she travels in the house. Thankfully, one voice, the narrator, is significantly more kind to her.
- Horror Video Games
- Shout-Out: Much of the soundtrack is a remix of the music from Uninvited. The gremlin from that game is present as a doll.
- Survival Horror: If you haven't figured that out from Have a Nice Death above.
- Unwinnable by Design: Averted for the most part. In the cauldron lab, the game will warn you that the room will be locked whenever you start on a spell, and to get your ingredients ready ahead of time to prevent you from making the game impossible to beat.
- Because this is a demo, some parts of the game cannot be passed, such as Snake Eyes Three-Card Monte, or the beehive.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Snake Eyes uses a pair of rattle snakes to restrain Octavia during High-Low and Three-Card Monte and will summon a pair from his eyes to attack her should she lose.
- Octavia reacts much more negatively to the sight of Bees. Justified, as she's allergic to them, and a single sting is enough to trigger a severe allergic reaction if left untreated* .
