Can be found here, now complete.
- Accidental Truth: This whole story is just a Daring Do fanfiction by Lyra and Rainbow Dash, so they somehow managed to accurately describe the human world, its history, and the Indiana Jones-verse all by themselves.
- Borrowed Catch Phrase: Quoth Daring:"Nazis. I hate these guys."
- Big Friendly Dog: Flint the diamond dog.
- Dude, Where's My Respect?: Played for Laughs, as Daring Do expects Brooks to know how famous she is, even though she's in an alternate universe.
- Durable Deathtrap: In chapter 1, there is an allusion to a "trap maintenance pony" keeping the traps up. In chapter 10, Daring Do 'encounters' one and, in chapter 11, meets him (his name being Sprocket) and gives him a beating.
- Evil All Along: Brooks and Silver Trowel
- Expy: Daring Do was already one of Indiana Jones, but the the adventurer's assistants, Richard Brooks and Silver Trowel, are almost identical. And both are traitors.
- Face–Heel Revolving Door: Brooks was never really on the side of Indiana or the Nazis. He was just out for himself.
- Family-Unfriendly Death: Silver Trowel gets his head trapped inside of a stone wall and suffocates, and Hans Jagermeister gets skewered by a giant blade.
- Fan Fic: There are two meanings for this one. In our world, it's a Crossover Fan Fiction between Indiana Jones and a My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Book Within A Cartoon. In the world of "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic", it's a fan-fiction written by Rainbow Dash and Lyra.

- Grievous Harm with a Body: Indy uses some poor pony to clear his path out of the central chamber of the Temple of Shadows.
- Historical Villain Downgrade: Twilight advises rainbow Dash and Lyra to do this when they write about the Nazis. She says, "Nopony would believe that any creatures would support an organization that's so pointless cruel and murderous."
- Inevitable Waterfall: Played straight when Indiana and his companions escape cultists by boat. Fortunately, Silver Trowel is able to levitate them to a safe landing.
- Intangible Man: Silver Trowel can achieve this with a certain amulet. During his fight with Indy, the latter pushes his head into the wall while the amulet's in use, then takes it out, resulting in a Tele-Frag.
- Meta Fiction: This whole story is just a fanfic written by Rainbow Dash an Lyra, and has fun playing with all the tropes associated with both Daring Do and Indiana Jones.
