The cover features a mare, who was "rendered to be ridiculously hot to the point of deformed, wearing equally ridiculous flank-baring armor". She was holding a sword in her muzzle and faced a monster that looked like a cross between a giant yao guai and Nightmare Moon, while a wide-eyed stallion was hiding behind her.
- The description of the cover is an accurate parody of real-life comic books where the protagonists on the cover were too ridiculously hot/muscular to the point of being deformed.
- The cover also features the classical gender-role reversal of Equestria, featuring mares superior to stallions.
- It is the Fallout Equestria equivalent to Grognak the Barbarian comic books sometimes found in Fallout 3 and New Vegas.
Sword Mares in Side-Stories Edit
An issue of Sword Mares is found in the vault of the faction Gaia Prevails at Mt. Mustang. When the Ministry of Image banned all copies of that issue for featuring a Zebra as a supporting character, making young foals believe Zebras could be friendly.
200 years after the war Aideen sold that issue for a high price to a collector.
