L.O.V.E vs. H.A.T.E is a series of fanfics from author Cartoonofan on FanFiction.Net, which are a series of crossovers featuring a number of cartoons.

The stories in the series so far are:

L.O.V.E vs. H.A.T.E #1: A New Beginning: Princess Twilight Sparkle and company are summoned to Canterlot and learn that a mysterious book containing spells that allow the user to travel to other worlds has been stolen from the castle library. Using a spell that allows travel to other worlds, Twilight and her pony friends soon meet a new batch of friends, including strange creatures known as "humans," and must track down the book thief.

L.O.V.E vs. H.A.T.E #2: It's All Greek to Twilight: Several members of L.O.V.E travel to the small Canadian town of New Olympia when they hear that Chrysalis plans to form an alliance with a local villain there. Soon, they meet a group of 7 teens, the villain's enemies, and join forces to prevent the alliance, while Twilight studies the similarities between Equestria and this world.

L.O.V.E vs. H.A.T.E #3: Twilight in Neitherland: Members of H.A.T.E kidnap the young Lydia Deetz to force her friend, the "ghost with the most" Beetlejuice, to juice their enemies for them. Twilight & Starlight find themselves trying to find the perfect way to deal with the pun-happy ghost, while Lydia attempts to escape her captors in hopes of stopping BJ before he goes too far.

L.O.V.E vs. H.A.T.E #4: The City of Fights: When a new exchange student appears in Paris, Marinette is quick to befriend her, but becomes suspicious when two new superheroes appear in town at the same time. Meanwhile, the forces of H.A.T.E are searching for the source of a group of strange monsters that have been reported, only for Peepers to become one.

In addition to the main stories, the series will also feature several "side stories," which are shorter stories set in between the numbered ones usually focusing on characters who don't appear in the main ones.

L.O.V.E vs. H.A.T.E provides examples of:

    open/close all folders 

  • Intercontinuity Crossover / Massive Multiplayer Crossover: The stories are examples of both.
  • Mirroring Factions: The main focus of most of the works is the ponies learning that "humans" and the others they encounter share many of the same values and ideals.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Unlike Twilight, Chrysalis will rarely participate in the adventure, usually relying on the other villains to handle things for her.
  • Rule of Cool / Rule of Funny: Why do the ponies keep their normal appearance and powers in these different worlds? Cause it makes for funnier situations and better drama.

    A New Beginning 
  • Odd Friendship: Much of the story is the ponies becoming friends with the strange characters they meet.
  • Plot Tailored to the Party: With a few exceptions, the ponies usually visit a world with characters who they can easily bond with.

    It's All Greek to Twilight 
  • Been There, Shaped History: Discord tells Twilight that all the Greek mythology-themed monsters that inhabit Equestria were created by him, after he was banished there by the gods. Given his personality though, he might be lying.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Spidey & Ben show up to save the day, although that's exactly what Twilight planned for.
  • Bound and Gagged: Theresa & Atlanta, obviously.
  • The Cameo: Discord makes an appearance in the penultimate chapter to mess with Twilight.
  • Capture and Replicate: Part of Chrysalis's plan is to kidnap Theresa & Atlanta, replace them with Changelings, then use them to weaken Jay & Archie.
  • Commonality Connection: The heroes, specifically the ponies, find themselves bonding with members of the Titans, due to similar personalities/interests.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The Titans first battle against the agents of H.A.T.E.
  • Damsel out of Distress: Theresa & Atlanta manage to free themselves, but rather than escape, allow them to think they're still helpless so as to surprise them later.
  • Glowing Eyes: At the end of the third chapter, Theresa & Atlanta are said to have them, which reveals that they've been replaced by Changelings.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: The characters will often comment on how people in New Olympia sound like those they know in Equestria (for example, Twilight notes that Theresa reminds her of Starlight). This is because both shows share a production company note  and several voice actors.
  • Mythology Gag: To keep from attracting undue attention, Twilight uses several ID masks to disguise herself and her pony friends, which give them human forms similar to the ones from My Little Pony: Equestria Girls.
  • Oh, Crap!: Rainbow's reaction when she finds out her ID Mask failed and her true Pegasus form was exposed in front of a group of humans. Fortunately for her, they're quite familiar with Pegasi, though they've never seen a rainbow one.
  • Play-Along Prisoner: In the final chapter, Theresa & Atlanta allow the villains to believe they're still tied up and helpless, so they can ambush them when the time is right.
  • Spotting the Thread: Twilight figures out that Theresa is actually a Changeling in disguise when she realizes she doesn't remember anything about the conversation regarding destiny they had earlier.
  • Villain Ball: Cronus & Chrysalis would've won, if they hadn't decided to draw out their enemies fate, instead of finishing them off right away.

    Twilight in Neitherland 
  • Bag of Kidnapping: How Snaptrap ends up kidnapping Lydia.
  • Bench Breaker: Lydia escapes after smashing the chair she's tied to.

  • I Have Your Wife: H.A.T.E eventually sends BJ a video revealing they've kidnapped Lydia to force him to do their bidding.
  • Jumping the Shark: A literal example, which BJ naturally lampshades.
  • Literal-Minded: When Twilight tells Beetlejuice to tell her the whole story (of why he was forced into terrorizing them), he instead starts by telling her his afterlife story.
  • The Kindnapper: Larry is the only one of her captors to treat Lydia nicely, removing her gags, allowing her to have water and loosening some of her bonds.
  • Odd Friendship: Twilight tries to get Starlight to form one of these with one of the other heroes, as part of her latest lesson. After seeing how Lydia & Beetlejuice have one, Starlight notes how similar it is to what she was trying to learn.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: When Snaptrap & Peepers arrive at the Deetz house, Snaptrap claims they are house cleaners, despite them only wearing jumpsuits and a fake mustache. Naturally, Lydia sees right through their disguise.
  • Play-Along Prisoner: The heroes pretend Beetlejuice has captured them so he can turn them over to H.A.T.E, and then they can foil them.

    • Queen Chrysalis appears briefly, via hologram, berating her minions for their failure.
    • Twilight Sparkle appears in Becky's flashback when she explains how she was enrolled in high school.
  • Clark Kenting: Discussed by WordGirl; after Freakazoid questions why Marinette & Adrian don't recognize each other in their superhero personas, WordGirl points out that, though Ladybug looks similar to Marinette, her personality is different enough that it could deflect suspicion.
  • Commonality Connection: Marinette & Becky eventually bond over being young superheroes who have to hide their secret from their families.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: When the H.A.T.E members face off against Ladybug, Cat Noir and their new allies, they get their asses easily handed to them. note
