* MonsterOfTheWeek: Most chapters deal with fighting one-shot monsters. In series order, we have: a minion of Titan (''Starfleet Magic I''), a Changeling sent by Chrysalis (''Starfleet Magic II''), one of King Sombra's minions (''Starfleet Magic III''), one of the Dark King's Cardinals (''Starfleet Magic IV''), one of Pinsar's commanders (''Starfleet Magic V''), or an escaped prisoner (''Starfleet Magic VI'').

** In a less family-friendly variety, one chapter has Starfleet trying to teach Twilight (and, by extension, the audience) that sometimes you can't reason with an enemy and have to resort to violence. The message would've been a lot stronger had the MonsterOfTheWeek not been a robot.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Unicorns of a certain color tend to live in a specific area of Unicornicopia. For example, blue unicorns live in Bluesville. The only remotely clever name is [[PunnyName O-Range]] for orange unicorns, and even then, the original version used the decidedly less clever "Orange-Range".

For example, blue unicorns live in Bluesville. The only remotely clever name is [[PunnyName O-Range]] for orange unicorns, and even then, the original version used the decidedly less clever "Orange-Range".



* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Lightning and his gang tend to initially struggle against the MonsterOfTheWeek despite outnumbering them. This got worse after Twilight and her friends joined Starfleet as it lead to scenarios where a dozen or so characters were incapable of defeating one villain.

** Also applies to the villains. If they send only one MonsterOfTheWeek, it takes the entire cast to bring it down. If they send multiple monsters, each member holds their own against one. On the few occasions where an entire army of mooks is present in one place, even the Starfleet {{redshirt}}s can go toe-to-toe with them.

* HenshinHero: Downplayed with Starfleet. While they play the trope and its associated clichés to the hilt, they do have magical powers without their armor; they just don't use those powers until push comes to shove and they're already armored up.



* MoodWhiplash: A frequent problem. You'll have some chapters that deal with silly sitcom-ish plots only for the next one to involve a character being brutally murdered.

In general, the fics can't seem to decide on whether they want to be a silly slice-of-life story, a campy HenshinHero story, or a gritty war story.
