This 1-on-1 2D fighting game is based on the popular My Little Pony series and pits the main six protagonists against each other. Heavily inspired by Marvel vs. Capcom 2, it features a complex, combo-heavy gameplay style and over-the-top air combos. Each character has three primary attack buttons along with a fourth "magic" button, allowing the character to perform special support actions.

This was a fangame, and not authorized by the rightsholders. On May 6, 2013, the developers received a cease and desist order from Hasbro and discontinued development of the game. With assistance from My Little Pony character designer Lauren Faust, they created a new cast of character and setting and began development of a new game from scratch. That game was eventually released five years later as Them's Fightin' Herds. Fighting is Magic's core gameplay mechanics were carried over into Them's Fightin' Herds with major refinements, and its six characters are based in part on the movesets designed for the characters in this game. An essentially-complete version of the original game was released unofficially in 2014 as a "Tribute Edition".
