Trans Ponies is an unfinished My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fan-comic written and illustrated by Tristanjsolarez since 2015. It revolves around Rainbow Dash transitioning into living as a stallion, and can be read here on their Deviantart

The story begins when Rainbow Dash comes back home after seven months. He had left Ponyville to transition and has now come back after his transition is over. While at a party to celebrate coming back, Rainbow Dash is invited to a trans ponies support group.

This comic provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Gender Identity: The comic's story is that Rainbow Dash, canonically a tomboy but otherwise okay with being female, undergoes a magic procedure that turns him into a stallion.
  • Art Evolution: The comic's art has developed over time. Most noticeably, it's also changed from hand-drawn to computer-drawn.
  • Coming-Out Story: Trans Ponies revolves around Rainbow coming out and how his transition affects his life.
  • Dead Fic: The comic hasn't updated since May 2015.
  • Easy Sex Change: In Equestria, ponies don't worry about hormones or surgery, and instead there's a magical procedure that automatically changes your body, though the transition itself takes a few months.
  • Fur Is Skin: The Original Character Sketchpad has dark orange fur and a black mane.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Big Macintosh's friend Tex is a G1 pony.
    • Rainbow Dash's mother is Firefly from G1. Rainbow is an expy of Firefly.
  • Pretty Boy: Tex isn't feminine but he's softer looking than Rainbow Dash and Big Macintosh. Rainbow outright calls him a "pretty boy".
  • Related in the Adaptation: Rainbow Dash is Firefly's son.
  • Raging Stiffie: At the start of volume 2, Rainbow Dash wakes up with a hard on after having a dream where he kisses Applejack. He has to take a cold shower afterwards.
