Webcomic / Anon's Pie Adventure

Go To

An ongoing Fan Webcomic drawn and written by Pencils, the comic is based off My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, drawing heavily on various memes spawned from 4chan's /mlp/ board.

The story starts off with a staple of /mlp/: an anonymous human somehow ends up in Equestria, Hilarity Ensues. He befriends the Pie family (first introduced in the episode "Hearthbreakers") and must adjust to life among the ponies. Anon quickly learns that he is a walking magical black hole. This has the benefit of giving him Super Strength, but will eventually drive him insane and make him explode. He must now find a way to regulate his powers before that happens.


Pencils' art page can be found here, and the comic itself can be read here.

This My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Fan Web Comic series contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Action Mom: Cloudy Quartz.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Twilight thinks this will make Mascara turn back into a regular pony.
  • Afraid of Blood: Limestone.
  • A God I Am Not: The Royal Sisters are surprised to find an entire town of ponies who treat them like goddesses, and find the practice to be very archaic.
  • Animals Lack Attributes: It's made clear that said attributes exist; they are just not shown or mentioned directly. note 
  • Apocalypse How: According to provided backstory, humanity was rendered all but extinct through a combination of types 3a and 3b.
    • 3a: The Earth's original sun destroyed Mercury or Venus with a solar flare,note  causing the planet's molten core to be slingshot toward Earth and pulling it out of its natural orbit.
    • Advertisement:
    • 3b: Unicorns who lived on the planet at the time used their combined power to create a new sun to save the planet, with the side-effect of losing their powers and granting humans with powers of their own. Most of humanity dies in magical wars and Phlebotinum Overdose.
  • Art Evolution: The comic has gradually gotten more colorful as Pencils is able to devote more time to it.
  • Author Appeal:
    • According to Word of God the comic is just an excuse to draw pony butts.
    • Pencils originally planned to have Marble and Limestone trapped underground during chapter 4, but he opted to use Cloudy instead because Pencils just liked the character that much.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Mascara after falling down the quarry.
  • Blood-Splattered Innocents: Limestone after Mascara pukes blood all over her.
  • Broad Strokes: Though the story is focused on the G4 cartoon, Lady Catrina and her Bushwoolies show up within the comic as well, and implies the events of the G1 movie featuring her happened within the same continuity.
  • Advertisement:
  • Butt-Monkey: Limestone. Whenever someone falls there's a good chance they'll land with their crotch on her face.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The very first time Anon attempts to use his Super Strength, he tears a massive slab of Tonalite from its foundations. Only later is it revealed this also drained a lakebed near the Pie's rock farm and caused many of the subterranean creatures to flee to the surface to escape the flooding.
  • Child Prodigy: Papyra, Mascara's little sister.
  • Classical Mythology: It turns out the Choosing Stone was a prison for Eros, primordial being of lust and love.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Maud.
  • Do You Want to Copulate?: Maud's pragmatic solution to Anon's predicament.
  • Emotional Fainting:
    • Limestone when she realizes Anon is bleeding after his encounter with a giant spider.
    • Priestess Padlock who faints when Princess Celestia shows up at her church.
  • The Everyman: Anon, a generic-looking young man with no backstory, that acts as the Audience Surrogate.
  • Fanservice: Lots and lots of close-ups of pony butts.
  • Flash Back: Marble when explaining the incident that caused Limestone's fear of blood.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: After being freed, Eros quickly takes on a form more reminiscent of his more widely-known identity as Cupid.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Pie sisters: Pinkie (Sanguine), Marble (Melancholic), Limestone (Choleric) and Maud (Phlegmatic).
  • Help, I'm Stuck!: Marble's curvaceous rump gets her stuck twice, much to her chagrin. First, Pinkie obliviously pulls her halfway through the little window in the farmhouse door, making it worse by trying to pull her through further, and necessitating Limestone to tug her back out. Then, while down in the underground caves with her mother, she gets wedged in a narrow gap, needing Cloudy Quartz to tug her out. Apparently, according to Cloudy, her grandmother shared a similar issue with tight spaces.
  • Innocent Innuendo:
    • Celestia when Anon tries to push her out of the room so that he can have some some privacy.
    • Limestone giving Anon instructions on how to move the flagstone monolith.
  • Insufferable Genius: Papyra.
  • Intimate Healing
  • Kiss-Kiss-Slap: Limestone breaks Anon out of a mind control spell with a kiss and then promptly punches him through a wall.
  • The Klutz: Mascara.
  • Lethal Klutz: Anon, with his ever-growing strength, usually manages to make a situation worse than it already was.
  • Letting Her Hair Down: Cloudy's mane, normally in a tight bun, is undone at a couple points in the story, allowing her hair to flow freely. she also drops her Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe.
  • Love at First Sight: Many ponies who meet Anon become rather attracted to him nearly instantly. Some proceed to make their intentions known a bit more aggressively than others.
  • Marilyn Maneuver: Anon mimics this pose as Rarity removes the tattered remains of his impromptu toga using levitation magic.
  • Monochrome Past: The sepia toned flashback with Limestone and Mascara.
  • Naked on Arrival: Anon.
  • The Nondescript: Anon, who has such generic facial features that he has been compared to the likes of Lex Luthor, Agent 47, and Dr. Manhattan. Averted when Pencils draws him in a much more stylized fashion, making him resemble Saitama.
  • Out with a Bang: Eros wants to apologize for all the trouble he caused by transporting Anon to Equestria. He does so by magically forcing everyone into an orgy until they die.
  • Prematurely Bald: At the sight of Limestone covered in blood, Igneous loses about half his hair at once.
  • Put on a Bus: Early in chapter 3, Applejack and Rainbow Dash go off to see if anymore humans have shown up in Equestria. Neither have been seen or heard from since.
  • Running Gag:
    • Attention constantly being drawn (via word of mouth or the artwork) to Marble's sizeable rump. Apparently, according to Cloudy Quartz, she inherited her figure from her grandmother, who needed the family's help in getting through tight squeezes, just like Marble.
    • Both times Marble has gotten stuck, she ends up in a highly awkward position with the family member who gets her unstuck. First, she ends up accidentally sitting on Limestone's face. Second, she ends up with her face in her mother's lap. Both times, all parties concerned agree never to speak of it again.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Anon when he sees the giant spider in the quarry.
  • Something Else Also Rises: Pegasi and alicorns extend their wings in reaction to excitement or sexual arousal. This happens to Twilight multiple times. note 
  • Suggestive Collision: Happens to Limestone repeatedly, to the point where it has become a Running Gag.
  • Sympathetic Adulterer: Played with. When Cloudy speaks with Anon in private and admits she was the reason he wound up in Equestria, he mistakenly assumes that her marriage with Igneous is unfulfilling. He puts some moves on before she manages to admit she wanted a suitor for her daughters, not for herself.

How well does it match the trope?
