Go To

Sonic and Equestria Girls is a crossover Fanfiction between the Sonic the Hedgehog and My Little Pony: Equestria Girls franchises written by author sguimba (SonicAKG on FimFic.) and first published in 2016. It can be found on FanFiction.Net here and Fimfiction.Net here. The summary of this series is as follows:

"As a result of trying to stop a Super Genesis Wave through the usage of Chaos Control by Super Sonic near the world of where the Rainbooms unleashed their magic to stop the Dazzlings, causes the two worlds to come together. It ends up with Sonic, Shadow, Manic and others are now at Canterlot High along with the Rainbooms. But with Sonic there, things aren't ever going to be normal and 'chaotic' things tend to happen."


This fanfic explores the adventures of Sonic, some of his supporting cast and the Rainbooms in this new reality and explores the interactions between elements of both worlds. It originally starts set after the events of My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Rainbow Rocks but before My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Friendship Games before eventually incorporating the storyline and continuing on from there. The story is written in the form of a t.v series with usually stand alone chapters though many of them are connected through various plot points. The genre and tone of this series is similar to that of Friendship is Magic and Sonic: Action/Adventure combined with slice of life and humour. From the Sonic side, it is heavily based on Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie Comics), drawing elements from both pre and post reboot such as concepts and characters.


Running alongside this fan fiction are a series of other stories, each containing their own story arc but are set in the same continuity as the parent fic, creating a shared universe due to it's ties towards it and can be considered a part of it. These stories include adaptations of the Friendship Games as previously mentioned and My Little Pony Equestria Girls Legendof Everfree respectively.

The series is ongoing with regular updates as of October 2017.

  • Adaptation Expansion: Due to having elements of the Archie Comics, it does this for the Sonic side.
