A comedy series of Fanfics written by Akumokagestu on Fimfiction that details Sweetie Belle's adventures as the least threatening villain Equestria has ever known. It centers around Sweetie Belle trying to become the most terrifying villain that's ever lived (probably not really), after trying on the Alicorn Amulet. She tries to achieve her goal of conquering Equestria, only to fail miserably, while most ponies don't even notice her attempts.

These include:

  • Evil Belle: The first story, wherein Sweetie Belle gets the Alicorn Amulet and attempts to be evil. She isn't very good at it.
  • The Return of Evil Belle-The Eviling: Evil Belle is left under the care of her greatest enemy yet! Her older sister!
  • Evil Belle's Revenge: Evil Belle sells her soul to a demon (Not as dark as it sounds), in exchange for a demonic form. It's just as cute as her regular form.

  • Evil Belle takes over Canterlot: After being left alone in the Canterlot gardens, while her dreaded sister handles business errands, Sweetie faces off against her Immortal mortal enemy, Celestia. Right after, Tia finds out they are apparently enemies and decides to play along.
  • Evil Belle: The clonening: Sweetie manages to find a cloning spell in book she stole from the Ponyville Library behind Twilight's, and most certainly didn't just ask Twilight to help her find a spell book and put together a list of ingredients. With this new army, Sweetie will definitely probably conquer Equestria.

Tropes

  • Adults Are Useless: Evil Belle's many "atrocities" go largely unnoticed by the pony populace and her sister. Justified, sense she's still a child, most ponies would just assume she was playing a game, just stare in confusion, or play along.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Sweetie Belle decides to become a feared villain completely out of the blue. Played for Laughs of course.
  • Adorable Evil Minions: Sweetie's clone army is this, being clones of herself and all.
  • Anti-Climax Boss: In universe. Sweetie is ready for her epic showdown with Zecora, which determines the fate of Equestria. Zecora simply swipes the amulet off her neck, before scolding her for messing with such a dangerous artifact, while not even knowing she had malicious intentions. Though she still thinks it was an epic battle.
  • Affably Evil: The demon Sweetie offers her soul to is actually a pretty nice guy. He even tries to talk Sweetie out of the deal.
  • Arch-Enemy: At various times, Sweetie refers to Rarity, Zecora, and Celestia as this. Rarity just thinks she's being a playful or stubborn child, Zecora pays her no heed, and her "Immortal Mortal Enemy!" Celestia just plays along.
  • Badass Boast: Sweetie tries doing this a lot, but it only comes off as cute.
  • Black Cloak: One of the most important additions to Sweetie's terrifyingly evil costume.
  • Boisterous Weakling: Sweetie constantly tries to describe how threatening she is, only for adults to handle her like child. Though she still thinks they put up a fight.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: The second story is all about Sweetie giving Rarity a hard time, while the latter is trying to get her ready for bed.
  • Brick Joke: While creating her clone army, one of Sweetie's clones accidentally gets launched and embedded in the ceiling. She's revealed to be the only one left, after the rest evaporate in the sun.
  • Continuity Nod: Sweetie Belle uses the Alicorn Amulet that Trixie used during Magic Duel in the first story.
  • Cassandra Truth: Sweetie's the literally the only one that believes she's evil. Probably. See Alternate Character Interpretation.
  • Clone Army: Sweetie gets one in the fifth story, to use in her siege on Canterlot. Unfortunately for her, they dissolve in sunlight.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Gains these in her demonic form, though she was hoping for Fangs Are Evil.
  • Cute Is Evil: Evil Belle, although she isn't all that evil.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Sweetie becomes one in her demon form, much to her chagrin.
  • Deal with the Devil: In the third fic, Sweetie sells her soul to a demon in exchange for a new demonic form. It doesn't really help that much.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Inverted. Sweetie certainly thinks she beat Celestia and Luna, but they were just humoring her for fun.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Sweetie describes what sounds like a Vibrator in Zecora's closet, by where she finds the Amulet.
  • The Dreaded: Inverted. Evil Belle thinks she's this to the point of saying Celestia's probably wisely signing her surrender before Sweetie's army of clones even gets there. Most ponies aren't even aware she's evil.
  • Drunk with Power: Subverted. Though it seems like it could be just the effects of the Alicorn Amulet that's causing Sweetie to think she's a villain, it's really just her.
  • Epic Fail: Sweetie's attempts at being evil include, trying to sabotage an artist's scalping, only to accidentally fix it, trying to turn over Carrot Top's carrot cart, only to make it 18% more efficient, and trying to hurt Diamond Tiara's cat only to help get it out of tree.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Sweetie tries this, but only manages to get one extra octane while sounding even cuter.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Sweetie tries every cliche from the Black Cloak to Evil Sounds Deep.
  • Evil Overlord: Sweetie's under the delusion that she's one.
  • Fainting: Rarity does this upon seeing her sister's clones.
  • For the Evulz: The reason for most of Evil Belle's "villainy". It’s played for laughs of course.
  • Gilligan Cut: When told by Rarity to brush her teeth before going to bed, Evil Belle adamantly refuses. Guess what happens.
  • Harmless Villain: The whole premise of the series is making Sweetie Belle one.
  • Have We Met?: Celestia's reaction when Sweetie declares her her "Mortal Immortal Enemy" can be summed up as “Are we enemies?”
  • Humiliation Conga: Though she's not hurt, the degree that her attempts of evil become Nice Job Fixing It, Villain! moments almost borders on Cosmic Plaything.
  • Idiot Ball: Zecora's decides to just hide the all-powerful Alicorn Amulet in the closet. Good thing a confident villain didn't find it.
  • Karma Houdini: Sort of. Evil Belle isn't really hurting anyone (though she thinks she is), but she makes it clear that she does have malicious intents. But other than the humiliation of her plans failing, she hasn't received any consequences.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: A running gag in the first fic is her trying to use the Alicorn Amulet for evil, only for this to happen.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Celestia. Not that she needs to be.
  • No-Sell: Her attempts to take down Celestia, basically boil down to throwing a feeble punch at the alicorn. Though Celestia still pretends to be hurt.
  • Reality Ensues: Sweetie ends up doing about as much evil as you would expect a little filly to be capable of.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Sweetie gains these as part of her demonic form, in the third story. [1]
  • Running Gag: Sweetie accidentally doing/saying something cute and/or innocent, and feebly trying to save face.
  • Sibling Rivalry: Between Rarity and Sweetie “Evil Belle”. Though Rarity only sees it as Sweetie being a Bratty Half-Pint, Sweetie sees them as full-fledged enemies.
  • So What Do We Do Now?: Princess Celestia asks Evil Belle this, after she "takes over Canterlot". Cut to her asking for another milkshake while Rarity asks for Celestia's forgiveness after leaving her little sister alone.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Sweetie's under the delusion that she is the most dangerous villain Equestria has ever known. But in reality, she's just a harmless little filly.
  • Swiss Cheese Security: Zecora's answer to sealing away the Alicorn Amulet is apparently to just hide it in her closet.
  • Transformation Is a Free Action: Averted. While in her villain rant, Evil Belle briefly asks Celestia if she can turnaround while she does something before they get to their epic battle. "I don't see any problem with that."
  • Troubling Unchild Like Behavior: Sweetie's under the delusion that she is a villain.
  • Villain Ball: If Evil Belle had a hint of genuine confidence as a villain, this is why she would fail.
  • Villainy-Free Villain: In the second story, the worst thing Evil Belle even does is act like a Bratty Half-Pint while Rarity babysits her. While she thinks she's being evil, of course.
  • Villain Protagonist: She thinks she's this.
  • Weak Sauce Weakness: Celestia jokingly says her weakness is light hits to the chest during her and Sweetie's "battle".
    • Apparently Sweetie's clones were only meant to be temporary and dissolve when hit by the sun.
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: She receives this when her "Evil Plans" backfire. Special mention goes to when she accidentally saves Diamond Tiara's cat -that's stuck in a tree- while trying to get back at her for bullying her, causing DT to hesitantly thank her.
