Final Fantasy XV: Twilight Elysium is a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and Final Fantasy XV crossover fanfiction written by Matrix7o6.

Ignorance is never bliss and it can cost you. Their ignorance almost cost us Equestria. But I saw the signs, I saw the enemy. But no one would listen. My so called "Friends" never stuck by my side as I tried to warn them of the threat to our very lives loomed over us. Instead they sided with her. Yet, whenever I can't be bothered to help them they always assume the worst or I'm just a bad friend. I'm done being a pawn, I'm done with these friendship lessons. I'm done with Equestria.


And that's how it started. A journey not for the faint of heart. A journey about duty and honor, love and friendship, Victory and defeat. In a world's darkest hour she will rise to help four friends reclaim their home. Let's get started.

The fic begins during the end of the Canterlot Wedding and before the events of Final Fantasy XV.

Final Fantasy XV: Twilight Elysium contains examples of:

  • Broken Pedestal: Princess Celestia and the rest of her friends for Twilight.
    • Rainbow Dash for Scootaloo.
  • Break the Haughty: The Element of Loyalty promises this in Rainbow's near future.
  • Ignorance Is Bliss: Celestia's philosophy to war. It's so bad that the Royal Guards are unwilling to kill.
    • Celestia herself is a victim of her own beliefs because she is ignorant that she has fostered a nation that is incapable of defending itself from a violent invasion, which is looking like a very real possibility now.
  • Lack of Empathy : Celestia barely batted a eye when Lunafreya was killed and merely tried to use it as "logical reason" for why Twilight should submit to being mindwiped into complience. this backfires spectacularly.

  • Magic Knight: Twilight becomes an immensely powerful one on Eos. Her presence can shift entire battles in the favor of the side she is fighting for.
  • Mind Rape: What Celestia plans to do this to Twilight to get her back on her side as fast as possible.
    • This is really Celestia's standard mode of behavior when things don't go her way because she threatens to do the exact same thing to Sunset Shimmer.
  • Never My Fault: Rainbow refuses to take any kind of responsibility for what happened at the wedding, instead opting to blame Twilight for what happened.
  • The Red Baron: Twilight gains a reputation in Eos as the "Sorceress of Nifilhem."
  • Seven Deadly Sins: The main cast of Equestria mostly represents one of these.
    • Envy: Shining Armor's of Twilight is his entire motivation.
    • Greed: Though Rarity did feel terrible for what happened after the failed wedding initially, when Photo Finish shows up and buys a dress she made in grief for an exorbitant price, Rarity becomes totally dismissive of anything not involving the Boutique.

    • Lust: Chrysalis is of the "for power" variety.
    • Pride: Rainbow's life has been pretty great since Twilight left, as a result she feels entirely justified in washing her hooves of any responsibility she had to anyone.
    • Sloth: Princess Celestia believes that war is never the answer even when your enemy is able and willing to. This is a lazy and dangerous philosophy to have as it leaves the ruler unable to repel invaders.
    • Wrath: Twofold.
      • Fluttershy isn't as extreme as other examples, but since it's Fluttershy it's still worth noting. Her kindness hasn't changed but her patience isn't what it used to be.
      • Spike has grown up and is using Celestia to find Twilight after which, he intends to betray her to reunite with Twilight.
  • Stepford Smiler: Pinkamena asks Pinkie if she could accept a world where Twilight was one of these. The fact that Pinkie doesn't really have a proper answer, speaks volumes.
  • Year Outside, Hour Inside: Time between Eos and Equestria is not like time between Equestria and CHS. A month may pass in Equestria, but in Eos, that same month, is a year.
