[[folder:Historical Figures]]

!!Tropes shared by most of them

* AlliterativeName: Star Swirl the Bearded. Also Clover the Clever, Princess Platinum and Private Pansy if you include titles.
* BeleagueredAssistant: To say that the assistants were annoyed at the behavior of their leaders would have been an understatement.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The assistants took out the [[EldritchAbomination Windigos]] and saved Equestria. As always, this involved [[CircleOfFriendship blasting them with]] [[ThePowerOfFriendship weaponized friendship]]. Noteable because it was ''accidental''.
* FantasticRacism: This was an unfortunate trait of the three races before they were united under Equestria's founding: The Earth Ponies resented the Pegasi and Unicorns for messing with the weather and their demands for food. The Pegasi were angry at the Earth Ponies for not being able to grow food and the Unicorns were viewed as too haughty by the other two. Especially evident in the leaders.
* PosthumousCharacter: This is kind of a requirement to be listed here.
* RedOniBlueOni: Each of the three leaders of the pony races had this kind of relationship with their assistants. The Leaders being red while the assistants were blue.

!!Star Swirl the Bearded

-->'''First Mention:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed "Luna Eclipsed"]]

The father of the amniomorphic spell and mentor to Clover the Clever, this influential yet obscure unicorn created more than 200 spells and was the most important conjurer of the pre-classical era. A wing in the Canterlot Archives (the most secure section, in fact) and a shelf in the Canterlot Library of Magic are both named after him. Twilight Sparkle dressed up as him for Nightmare Night during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed Luna Eclipsed]]". While there is an Earth pony mare in the toy line named Star Swirl, this Star Swirl seems to be a completely different character, judging by Twilight's statements about him and by his appearance in the [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch art print]] ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=3353 Legends of Equestria]]'' [[http://fav.me/d4w9abd by Damian Ziomek]].

* AllThereInTheManual: We haven't even seen a picture of him in the show, but he's appeared in the abovementioned [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch art print]].
* TheArchmage: Probably an obscenely powerful mage considering that Twilight calls him the "most important conjurer of the pre-classical era."
* BadassBeard
* BilingualBonus / StealthPun: Star Swirl the Bearded is the master of the amniomorphic spell. Amnio means 'bowl' and morphic means 'form' which makes him a bearded bowl-making spellcaster... a [[HarryPotter hairy potter]].
* {{Cosplay}}: Not he himself, but Twilight dresses as him for Nightmare Night becoming a "[[WholesomeCrossdresser Cross]]player" by doing so.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[HarryPotter Dumbledore]] and [[LordOfTheRings Gandalf]].
* GenderFlip: The toy Star Swirl has always been female, even in G4, but the name is being used for a male character in this show.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In the [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch art print]].
* TheMagnificent
* TheMentor: To Clover the Clever.
* NiceHat
* OfficialFanSubmittedContent: His AllThereInTheManual coat color and GlowingEyesOfDoom from the [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch art print]].
* [[PalsWithJesus Pals With Princesses]]: Princess Luna may have known him personally.
* RobeAndWizardHat
* WizardBeard

!!Clover the Clever

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria, Star Swirl the Bearded's protegee and assistant to Princess Platinum. Played by Twilight Sparkle in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* {{Expy}}/GenderFlip: Possibly of G2's [[http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/Clever_Clover Clever Clover]].
** It's not been officially confirmed as a gender flip since the ''character'' is never addressed by gender in the play and [[CrossDressingVoices girls playing male characters]] happens in real life.
* MagicKnight
* TheMagnificent
* [[StraightMan Straight Mare]]: To Platinum.

!!Princess Platinum

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and daughter of the Unicorn King. Played by Rarity in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* ErmineCapeEffect: Wears only her royal robes, due to the LimitedWardrobe of the episode.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses
* PimpedOutDress: Her [[PrettyInMink ermine-trimmed]] gown.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Her gown is purple.
* PrincessesRule: Possibly; we never see her father and she's the one who goes off to found Equestria, not him.
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia
* RoyalBrat: Until the Windigos' defeat, that is.

!!Commander Hurricane

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and the leader of the Pegasi. Played by Rainbow Dash in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* AmbiguousGender: Hurricane is referred to as "sir"[[hottip:*:Which can be gender neutral in certain situations]] multiple times as well as being named a "brute" (an insult which is usually AlwaysMale) throughout the play but Pansy calls Hurricane "her" multiple times and the role is played by the female Rainbow Dash.
* AwesomeMcCoolname
* BadBoss: To Private Pansy.
* GeneralRipper
* HotBlooded
* {{Jerkass}}
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: After the Windigos' defeat.
* [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race Pony]]

!!Private Pansy

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and subordinate of Commander Hurricane. Played by Fluttershy in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* FailOSuckyname: Contrasted with her commanding officer's. On its own "Pansy" wouldn't be too bad as a pony name...but "Private Pansy" is possibly the worst name imaginable for a military setting.
* ShrinkingViolet
* [[StraightMan Straight Mare]]: To Hurricane

!!Chancellor Puddinghead

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and leader of the Earth ponies. Played by Pinkie Pie in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* TheCaligula: A mild example before the Windigos' defeat.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* InsaneTrollLogic: if Pinkie's interpretation of the character is anything to go by, Puddinghead pretty much runs on this. She was elected because she can think outside of the box, which means she can also think [[CrowningMomentOfFunny inside the chimney]]. ''Can you think inside a chimney?''
* NiceHat: Wears a ''bowl of pudding'' on her head.
* NoSenseOfDirection: Believes wearing an upside-down map on her face is all the direction she needs. Of course whether it's upside or not is irrelevant; [[InsaneTrollLogic the world is round; there is no up or down.]]
* [[PointyHairedBoss Pointy Maned Boss]]: It's a wonder the earth ponies managed to function with her in charge.
** And to make matters worse? She was ELECTED!

!!Smart Cookie

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and secretary to Chancellor Puddinghead. Played by Applejack in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* DeadpanSnarker
* HonestAdvisor
* SassySecretary
* ServileSnarker
* [[StraightMan Straight Mare]]: To Puddinghead.

!!Daring Do
[[quoteright:200:[[http://boneswolbach.deviantart.com/art/Daring-Do-283115321 http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daring_do_by_boneswolbach-d4ok56h_6230.png]]]]

--> '''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep "Read It and Weep"]]

-->Voiced by Chiara Zanni

An archaeologist pegasus with yellow fur and a grayscale mane who is the heroine of the adventurous tale of ''Daring Do and the Quest for the Sapphire Stone'' as well as many other titles, a series of books anypony can enjoy.

Her series has a JustForFun page [[JustForFun/DaringDo here!]]

* [[ActionGirl Action Mare]]
* AdventurerArchaeologist: Considering [[IndianaJones who]] she's an {{Expy}} of, goes with the territory.
* AdventurerOutfit: Complete with pith helmet.
* AlliterativeName
* {{Badass}}: So much that she impresses Rainbow Dash into becoming a fan of her series.
** BadassAdorable: This is a given considering she's a PaletteSwap of Rainbow Dash.
** HandicappedBadass: At least in ''Quest for the Sapphire Stone'', where her right wing was injured in a crash, rendering her unable to fly.
** BroughtDownToBadass: And on that note, she loses her ability to fly and becomes Indiana Jones. Flying, she should be almost too good to work as an adventurer archaeologist.
* BrainyBrunette
* CharacterNameAndTheNounPhrase: How the titles of her books work.
* {{Determinator}}: Nothing's going to stop her from getting the Sapphire Relic.
* {{Expy}}: Ponydom's answer to IndianaJones.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal
* MeaningfulName: She is a Doer of Daring Things. Also, probably a pun on derring-do, which she is prone to.
* NiceHat: It even helps her to escape Ahuizotl's trap!
* PaletteSwap: Of Rainbow Dash.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Daring Do" is the trademarked[[note]](in RealLife, not {{In-Universe}})[[/note]] spelling used on [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391734445 her and Mare Do Well's trading card]], the ''Another day, another dungeon'' trading card and on the shirt ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1922 Daring Do]]'', but "Daring-Do" is the spelling used on the cover of ''Quest for the Sapphire Stone'' (shown in legible form on her and Mare Do Well's trading card and on the shirt ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=2722 Daring-Do]] [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=2725 Cover]]'').

!!Ahuizotl
[[quoteright:200:[[http://shadyhorseman.deviantart.com/art/Daring-Do-s-Nemesis-quot-Ahuizotl-quot-283333814 http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daring_do__s_nemesis___ahuizotl___by_shadyhorseman-d4ootrq_6138_optimized_6602.png]]]]

--> '''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep "Read It and Weep"]]

A villain based on an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahuizotl_(creature) Ahuizotl]]. He's the big bad of the book ''Daring Do and the Quest for the Sapphire Stone''. And since he's an in-universe fictional character, he's a hilariously cliched and over the top bad guy.

* [[ADogNamedDog An Ahuizotl Named Ahuizotl]]: They can get away with this since there aren't many others to confuse it with.
* ArchEnemy: Of Daring Do.
* AztecMythology: Where he originated from.
* BigBad: Of ''[[ShowWithinAShow Daring Do and the Quest for the Sapphire Stone]]''.
* BigNo: Of course he had to release one of these.
* BondVillainStupidity: Instead of having his cat minions take care of Daring Do directly, he opts to leave her in an ancient DeathTrap. Granted, it's a [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill darn good]] deathtrap.
* CatsAreMean: Has a number of dangerous big cats--and one cute white kitten--as his EvilMinions.
** RightHandCat
* DiabolicalMastermind
* EvilIsHammy: He could rival Discord for this trope.
* LargeHam: He's a character in a book, after all.
* OurMonstersAreWeird: Ahuizotl don't usually appear much in popular culture do they?
* PrehensileTail: The production team have ShownTheirWork; this is one of the ahuizotl's most notable features in Aztec myth.
* RealMenWearPink: Plenty of villains have a RightHandCat, but not many have one [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter so adorable]].

Bearded.




[[folder:The Wonder Bolts]]
[[quoteright:136:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Wonderbolt_Poster_by_Stinkehund_8667.png]]

--> '''First Mention:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E1MareInTheMoon "Friendship Is Magic, Part 1" ("Mare in the Moon")]] \\
'''Full Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E3TheTicketMaster "The Ticket Master"]]

The most talented flyers in all of Equestria and Rainbow Dash's idols. The Wonder Bolts perform at the Grand Galloping Gala every year and also served as celebrity judges for the Best Young Flyer Competition in Cloudsdale.

!!Tropes which apply to the entire group

* AdaptationNameChange: One of TheHub's alternate stories of how Rainbow Dash got her cutie mark refers to them as the Blue Thunders.
* BadassInDistress: Very briefly in "Sonic Rainboom".
** Again in "Secret to My Excess", though the situation is somewhat less dire.
* BigDamnHeroes: In addition to being performers, they're apparently Equestria's rescue team as seen in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E16SonicRainboom Sonic Rainboom]]" and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess Secret of My Excess]]". Too bad they fail in both situations.
* FanNickname:
** Over on {{Tumblr}}, the Blog/AskAPony community have pretty much accepted the third Wonder Bolt judge that gets saved by Rainbow Dash as "Misty", and Fleetfoot was given the first name "Echo" (days before Fleetfoot was named in show). Tyco for the one with the orange and really light yellow hair, and Ariel, the one with curly blue hair, are gaining in popularity.
** "Doc" (Not to be confused with Dr. Hooves, see [[{{Characters/FriendshipIsMagic-BackgroundPonies}} Background Ponies]]) is a popular nickname for the one with gray hair resembling [[Film/BackToTheFuture Doc Brown]].
** Less popular but still used are Blaze for the orange haired one. The name Rapidfire was used in the Derby during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]" and identified as male. Doc and Soarin' (who wasn't mentioned by name) were the only stallions in the race ([[{{Blooper}} animation errors]] aside). There's another Wonder Bolt who looks like Soarin' so the name has been used for him.
* GlassCannon: They are incredibly fast and agile, and at full speed their wings can cut through dragon scales like knife through butter, but a single hit from Rarity was enough to send three of them plummeting to their (almost) death. Makes sense since [[FridgeBrilliance horses kick a lot harder than humans can.]]
** Of course, [[BadassDamsel Rarity]] [[IKnowKarate Knows Kung Fu]].
* LatexSpaceSuit: What their blue uniforms appear to be.
* [[MulticoloredHair Multicolored Mane]]: Three of them have this.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Ponies]]: They are superfamous celebrities, but they keep a humble attitude and are openly friendly towards their fans; in fact, they were pretty much the '''only''' nice ponies around during "The Best Night Ever".
** Besides Rarity, they were the only guests who didn't think they were too good for Applejack's apple treats.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The Wonder Bolts are [[https://twitter.com/goldenrusset/status/147573636369354752 likely]] based on the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Angels US Navy Blue Angels]], resembling them in colour scheme, profession and flying style, while their name recalls the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Air_Force_Thunderbirds Thunderbirds]].
* NoNameGiven: All of them except Soarin', Spitfire, Fleetfoot, and Rapidfire. Another one ''could'' have the AllThereInTheScript name of Breezie or Surprise; see her entry below for details.
* OCStandIn: It's starting to become a trend on {{Tumblr}} to start blogs for the [[NoNameGiven unnamed]] Wonder Bolts. They're pretty much on the same level as most background ponies...perhaps even lower since they show up less than say Derpy or Lyra and even their cutie marks are a mystery but they still receive {{Fanon}}. Of course, the yellow-maned white Wonder Bolt also has her possible identity as Surprise or Breezie to draw from (though she's generally only been portrayed as Surprise).
* OpaqueLenses: Their goggles.
* RazorWings: Probably a by-product of natural Pegasi abilities; sharp enough to shave a dragon if they feel like it.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Whether their name is two words or one. "Wonder Bolts" is the most official spelling, being used on the Miniature Collection toy sets' boxes (as a trademark), in the British [[TieInNovel magazine story]] ''The Ticket Master'' (a {{Novelization}} of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E3TheTicketMaster the episode of the same name]]), [[http://www.facebook.com/mylittlepony/posts/348953445122099 by]] Hasbro's ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' Website/{{Facebook}} [[http://www.facebook.com/mylittlepony page]], and [[https://twitter.com/M_A_Larson/status/227059090948493312 by]] writer M.A. Larson. "Wonderbolts" has been used more frequently, but mostly by less-official sources: Enterplay's [[TheMerch trading cards]] (in [[http://chimicherrychanga.com/img/tc/22a.jpg the front of the Spitfire & Soarin' card]]'s case, as a trademark), Ruckus Media Group's [[IOSGames iOS app]] ''[[http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/my-little-pony-twilight-sparkle/id465213808 Twilight Sparkle: Teacher for a Day]]'', Hasbro's ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' Website/{{Facebook}} and {{Twitter}} pages and a [[http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/File:%22The_Wonderbolts%22_name_dispute_email_screenshot.png response]] by the company's customer service, Creator/TheHub's {{Facebook}} [[http://www.facebook.com/hubtvnetwork page]], Mighty Fine's [[TheMerch merchandise]] and listings of & advertising for said merchandise, a [[https://twitter.com/Fyre_flye/status/241037025476747265 tweet]] by show creator Creator/LaurenFaust, and a [[https://twitter.com/KeatingRogers/status/233652109290131457 tweet]] by writer Amy Keating Rogers.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: Possibly.
* VagueAge: Their goggles hide whether or not they have bags under their eyes.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse:
** Six Wonder Bolts performed an acrobatic stunt before the start of the Best Young Flyer Competition. Three of them sat in the stands and were the only ones who tried to rescue Rarity later in the episode. The other three flew off the top of the screen and weren't seen again.
** Again in the Season 1 finale "Best Night Ever", we don't see what happens to Spitfire and Soarin' after Rainbow Dash catches the statue. There's also all the other Wonder Bolts who Rainbow Dash might've had better luck hanging out with, though her focusing on Spitfire and Soarin' makes sense in hindsight now that we know Spitfire is the captain and Soarin' may be second in command.
* TheWorfEffect: For such an elite group, they have an abysmal track record of doing anything useful in dangerous situations.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have A Blue Mane]]: Soarin' and a few others. Additionally a poster seen in "Friendship is Magic, part 1" shows a stylized depiction of three blue-haired Wonder Bolts.

!!Spitfire
[[quoteright:144:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Spitfire_by_Issyrael_387.png]]
[[caption-width-right:144:Well, ain't she [[JustForPun hot]]?]]

--> '''First Appearance:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E16SonicRainboom Sonic Rainboom]]"\\
'''Full Debut:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]"

-->Voiced by MarykeHendrikse

A yellow {{Pegasus}} mare with a fiery looking mane, Spitfire has a laid back and easy going personality in contrast to her appearance. "Hurricane Fluttershy" revealed that she is the leader of the Wonder Bolts (as many fans had assumed beforehand). She's apparently getting a partly-translucent [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-5gHDdPXnuFI/UCGjj6-abiI/AAAAAAAAzJg/vzpCI0FQNj4/s1600/3.jpg toy]].

* AllThereInTheManual: According to [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391528291 her and Soarin's trading card]], her cutie mark is the lightning bolt symbol shown on the female Wonder Bolts' flight suits (just like how Soarin's cutie mark is the winged lightning bolt symbol shown on the male Wonder Bolts' flight suits).
* BrownEyes
* TheCaptain
* FieryRedhead: Despite her name and appearance, Spitfire actually averts this trope quite nicely.
* HeyItsThatVoice: This asskicking Pegasus is a member of the [[BlackLagoon Lagoon Company]]. Don't mess with her.
* [[FlamingHair Flaming Mane]]: Spitfire's mane and tail resemble blazing flames.
* MeaningfulName: She is named after the WW2-era [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermarine_Spitfire Supermarine Spitfire]] Fighter Plane (perhaps the most iconic plane of the whole war).
* RedOniBlueOni: Despite her appearance, she's the Blue to Soarin's Red.
* [[ShesAManInJapan She's a Stallion in Poland]]: Possibly in the Polish dub. She has a male voice in both "Sonic Rainboom" and "The Best Night Ever", but it might just be an extreme case of CrossDressingVoices.

!!Soarin'
[[quoteright:200:[[http://blackm3sh.deviantart.com/art/Soarin-Uniform-208320639?q=gallery%3Ablackm3sh%2F31480814&qo=18 http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/soaren_uniform_by_blackm3sh-d3g118f_3025.png]]]]
[[caption-width-right:200:He loves pies.]]
-->'''First Appearance:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E3TheTicketMaster The Ticket Master]]"\\
'''Full Debut:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]"

--> Voiced by MattHill

This lovable blue Pegasus stallion despite his goofy personality is one of the best fliers in Equestria. He ''really'' loves pies. He makes a small cameo in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2]]", dancing with Rainbow Dash and out of his flight suit to boot, instead wearing a uniform that implies he's second in command. He's apparently getting a partly-translucent [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XNB_kWOokEA/UCGjjpOnDLI/AAAAAAAAzJY/tk6KcWSgtyA/s1600/2.jpg toy]].

* AllThereInTheManual: [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391528291 His and Spitfire's trading card]] confirms that pie is his TrademarkFavoriteFood.
* BigEater: According to his teammate Spitfire, always gets hungry after a performance. When he finds Applejack's food cart, he goes absolutely nuts for one of her apple pies.
** Which has lead to {{Shipping}} between the two.
* BigNo: MYYYYYYYYYYY PIIIIIIEEEEEE!
* CrazyConsumption: Soarin' ''literally'' eats like a horse.
* GreenEyes
* HeyItsThatVoice: Soarin' is apparently a [[MobileSuitGundamSEED Coordinator]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Despite their mane colors, this is inverted as Soarin is the Red Oni to Spitfire's Blue Oni.
* SweetTooth: Soarin' has a big one for Applejack's pie, considering how fast he eats it at the Grand Galloping Gala.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pie.
* {{Tuckerization}}: He was named after Amy Keating Rogers' son Soren. Rogers was the writer for "Sonic Rainboom" and "The Best Night Ever", both of which featured the Wonder Bolts.
* VocalDissonance: He sounds younger than the bags under his eyes imply he is.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: His toy, if it is indeed him, uses the same mold as the female Wonder Bolts' toys, only being indicated as male by sporting the male Wonder Bolts' winged lightning bolt symbol rather than the female Wonder Bolts' plain lightning bolt symbol.

!!Fleetfoot
-->'''First Appearance:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]"

A blue pegasus with a white mane. She's apparently one of the smaller Wonder Bolts, but makes up for it with great speed. She wins the derby in "Sweet and Elite".

* FreezeFrameBonus: How she's identified. In "Sweet and Elite" its announced she's the winner of the race, however it's hard to tell which Wonder Bolt is Fleetfoot since they move so fast. Pausing at the right moment reveals she's the blue, white maned Wonder Bolt.
* OCStandIn: Has a rather notable example in the Blog/AskAPony community with [[http://ask-echo-wonderbolt.tumblr.com/ Echo]], the [[HandicappedBadass blind Wonder Bolt]]. The blog started a few days before "Sweet and Elite" aired. Echo's quite popular in that community despite Fleetfoot being little more than a named background pony.
* OffModel: In a wide shot in "The Best Night Ever", she's missing her tail.
* [[WhiteHairedPrettyGirl White Maned Pretty Filly]]

!!Rapidfire

Another participant in the "Sweet & Elite" race, Fancypants believed he would win, but Fleetfoot beat him and the other Wonder Bolts. Unlike Fleetfoot, which one he is isn't entirely clear other than "not Soarin'". it [[http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=83737&view=findpost&p=1960624 isn't specified]] which one he is but he's most likely the gray one with a white mane who appears at the start of, during and at the finish of the Derby; [[{{Blooper}} at least one other unnamed male Wonder Bolt appears in some shots, but not all of them]].

!![[AllThereInTheScript Breezie]]/[[AllThereInTheScript Surprise]]

-->'''First Appearance:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E3TheTicketMaster The Ticket Master]]"

A white Pegasus mare with a yellow mane. What sets her apart from the other unnamed Wonder Bolts is her resemblance to two different out-of-show ponies: [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/--gv0rMPY0o0/T16NUqJMUeI/AAAAAAAAibI/gLA9D84OsX8/s1600/5.jpg Breezie]], a [[GodCreatedCanonForeigner toy line exclusive pony]] with a windblown tree cutie mark and green eyes who "loves windy days," and [[http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/6947/mylittleponysurprisebyf.jpg Surprise]], an [[WhatCouldHaveBeen early design of Pinkie Pie]] (based on G1 Surprise) with a three-purple-balloons cutie mark and purple eyes. However, since the show hasn't revealed this Wonder Bolt's cutie mark or her eye color, it's unknown whether she really is either of those two ponies. An unnamed toy of her in her Wonder Bolts uniform is part of the Miniature Collection [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=452693148081461 Cloudsdale Set]]; [=ToyWiz=] [[http://www.toywiz.com/glindaspitfirerainbowdash.html has]] [[http://www.toywiz.com/mlpfimpvcspitfire.html identified]] her as Spitfire, but this appears to be a case of CowboyBebopAtHisComputer.

* AscendedExtra: Whether or not she's Breezie, she's still the first Wonder Bolt to get a toy (and if she is Breezie, then she's the only Wonder Bolt to get more than one toy). She's even on the banner at [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ubB0FzVcX-Q/T_4q4Fu0QEI/AAAAAAAAv2o/uMA9C9ZVKXo/s1600/1.jpg Comic Con]], among main characters and fan favorites with Spitfire & Soarin' nowhere in sight!
* AllThereInTheManual: If she is Breezie or Surprise, since the show's only revealed her coat and mane colors and her job.
* AllThereInTheScript: Both of her possible names.
* DependingOnTheArtist: In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess Secret of My Excess]]" (her only Season 2 appearance), she has a noticeably darker mane than in her other appearances (in the show, the ExpandedUniverse, and the toy line).
* {{Expy}}: If she is Breezie (who was a G3 pony) or Surprise (who was a G1 pony).
* LawyerFriendlyCameo: If she is Surprise.

!![[FanNickname Misty]]

A light yellow Pegasus mare with a bright electric blue mane. She's the third member of the trio of judges who try to rescue Rarity in "Sonic Rainboom", along with Spitfire and Soarin'. She's apparently getting a partly-translucent [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Amo0Df8dGDY/UCGjkGuJr6I/AAAAAAAAzJo/jh_PAdRvSOk/s1600/4.jpg toy]].

!!Tropes shared by most of them

* AlliterativeName: Star Swirl the Bearded. Also Clover the Clever, Princess Platinum and Private Pansy if you include titles.
* BeleagueredAssistant: To say that the assistants were annoyed at the behavior of their leaders would have been an understatement.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The assistants took out the [[EldritchAbomination Windigos]] and saved Equestria. As always, this involved [[CircleOfFriendship blasting them with]] [[ThePowerOfFriendship weaponized friendship]]. Noteable because it was ''accidental''.
* FantasticRacism: This was an unfortunate trait of the three races before they were united under Equestria's founding: The Earth Ponies resented the Pegasi and Unicorns for messing with the weather and their demands for food. The Pegasi were angry at the Earth Ponies for not being able to grow food and the Unicorns were viewed as too haughty by the other two. Especially evident in the leaders.
* PosthumousCharacter: This is kind of a requirement to be listed here.
* RedOniBlueOni: Each of the three leaders of the pony races had this kind of relationship with their assistants. The Leaders being red while the assistants were blue.

'''Full Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E3TheTicketMaster "The Ticket Master"]]

The
Canterlot Archives (the most talented flyers secure section, in all fact) and a shelf in the Canterlot Library of Magic are both named after him. Twilight Sparkle dressed up as him for Nightmare Night during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed Luna Eclipsed]]". While there is an Earth pony mare in the toy line named Star Swirl, this Star Swirl seems to be a completely different character, judging by Twilight's statements about him and by his appearance in the [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch art print]] ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=3353 Legends of Equestria]]'' [[http://fav.me/d4w9abd by Damian Ziomek]].

* AllThereInTheManual: We haven't even seen a picture of him in the show, but he's appeared in the abovementioned [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch art print]].
* TheArchmage: Probably an obscenely powerful mage considering that Twilight calls him the "most important conjurer of the pre-classical era."
* BadassBeard
* BilingualBonus / StealthPun: Star Swirl the Bearded is the master of the amniomorphic spell. Amnio means 'bowl' and morphic means 'form' which makes him a bearded bowl-making spellcaster... a [[HarryPotter hairy potter]].
* {{Cosplay}}: Not he himself, but Twilight dresses as him for Nightmare Night becoming a "[[WholesomeCrossdresser Cross]]player" by doing so.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[HarryPotter Dumbledore]] and [[LordOfTheRings Gandalf]].
* GenderFlip: The toy Star Swirl has always been female, even in G4, but the name is being used for a male character in this show.

One of the founders of Equestria, Star Swirl the Bearded's protegee and assistant to Princess Platinum. Played by Twilight Sparkle in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* {{Expy}}/GenderFlip: Possibly of G2's [[http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/Clever_Clover Clever Clover]].
** It's not been officially confirmed as a gender flip since the ''character'' is never addressed by gender in the play and [[CrossDressingVoices girls playing male characters]] happens in real life.

* BadassInDistress: Very briefly in "Sonic Rainboom".
** Again in "Secret to My Excess", though

* BigDamnHeroes: In addition to being performers, they're apparently Equestria's rescue team as seen in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E16SonicRainboom Sonic Rainboom]]" and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess Secret

* FanNickname:
** Over on {{Tumblr}},
the Blog/AskAPony community have pretty much accepted the third Wonder Bolt judge that gets saved Pegasi. Played by Rainbow Dash in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* AmbiguousGender: Hurricane is referred to
as "Misty", "sir"[[hottip:*:Which can be gender neutral in certain situations]] multiple times as well as being named a "brute" (an insult which is usually AlwaysMale) throughout the play but Pansy calls Hurricane "her" multiple times and Fleetfoot was given the first role is played by the female Rainbow Dash.

One of the founders of Equestria and subordinate of Commander Hurricane. Played by Fluttershy in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

!!Chancellor Puddinghead

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and leader of the Earth ponies. Played by Pinkie Pie in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* TheCaligula: A mild example
before Fleetfoot the Windigos' defeat.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* InsaneTrollLogic: if Pinkie's interpretation of the character is anything to go by, Puddinghead pretty much runs on this. She
was named in show). Tyco for elected because she can think outside of the one with box, which means she can also think [[CrowningMomentOfFunny inside the orange and really light yellow hair, and Ariel, chimney]]. ''Can you think inside a chimney?''
* NiceHat: Wears a ''bowl of pudding'' on her head.
* NoSenseOfDirection: Believes wearing an upside-down map on her face is all
the one with curly blue hair, are gaining in popularity.
** "Doc" (Not to be confused with Dr. Hooves, see [[{{Characters/FriendshipIsMagic-BackgroundPonies}} Background Ponies]])
direction she needs. Of course whether it's upside or not is a popular nickname for irrelevant; [[InsaneTrollLogic the one with gray hair resembling [[Film/BackToTheFuture Doc Brown]].
** Less popular but still used are Blaze for the orange haired one. The name Rapidfire was used in the Derby during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]" and identified as male. Doc and Soarin' (who wasn't mentioned by name) were the only stallions in the race ([[{{Blooper}} animation errors]] aside). There's another Wonder Bolt who looks like Soarin' so the name has been used for him.
* GlassCannon: They are incredibly fast and agile, and at full speed their wings can cut through dragon scales like knife through butter, but a single hit from Rarity was enough to send three of them plummeting to their (almost) death. Makes sense since [[FridgeBrilliance horses kick a lot harder than humans can.

** Of course, [[BadassDamsel Rarity]] [[IKnowKarate Knows Kung Fu]].
* LatexSpaceSuit: What their blue uniforms appear to be.
* [[MulticoloredHair Multicolored Mane]]: Three of them have this.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Ponies]]: They are superfamous celebrities, but they keep a humble attitude and are openly friendly towards their fans; in fact, they were pretty much the '''only''' nice ponies around during "The Best Night Ever".
** Besides Rarity, they were the only guests who didn't think they were too good for Applejack's apple treats.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The Wonder Bolts are [[https://twitter.com/goldenrusset/status/147573636369354752 likely]] based on the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Angels US Navy Blue Angels]], resembling them in colour scheme, profession and flying style, while their name recalls the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Air_Force_Thunderbirds Thunderbirds]].
* NoNameGiven: All of them except Soarin', Spitfire, Fleetfoot, and Rapidfire. Another one ''could'' have the AllThereInTheScript name of Breezie or Surprise; see her entry below for details.
* OCStandIn:

One of
the same level as most background ponies...perhaps even lower since they show up less than say Derpy or Lyra founders of Equestria and even their cutie marks are a mystery but they still receive {{Fanon}}. Of course, the yellow-maned white Wonder Bolt also has her possible identity as Surprise or Breezie secretary to draw from (though she's generally only been portrayed as Surprise).
* OpaqueLenses: Their goggles.
* RazorWings: Probably a by-product of natural Pegasi abilities; sharp enough to shave a dragon if they feel like it.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Whether their name is two words or one. "Wonder Bolts" is the most official spelling, being used on the Miniature Collection toy sets' boxes (as a trademark),

Played by Applejack in the British [[TieInNovel magazine story]] ''The Ticket Master'' (a {{Novelization}} of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E3TheTicketMaster the episode of the same name]]), [[http://www.facebook.com/mylittlepony/posts/348953445122099 by]] Hasbro's ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' Website/{{Facebook}} [[http://www.facebook.com/mylittlepony page]], and [[https://twitter.com/M_A_Larson/status/227059090948493312 by]] writer M.A. Larson. "Wonderbolts" has been used more frequently, but mostly by less-official sources: Enterplay's [[TheMerch trading cards]] (in [[http://chimicherrychanga.com/img/tc/22a.jpg the front of the Spitfire & Soarin' card]]'s case, as a trademark), Ruckus Media Group's [[IOSGames iOS app]] ''[[http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/my-little-pony-twilight-sparkle/id465213808 Twilight Sparkle: Teacher for a Day]]'', Hasbro's ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' Website/{{Facebook}} and {{Twitter}} pages and a [[http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/File:%22The_Wonderbolts%22_name_dispute_email_screenshot.png response]] by the company's customer service, Creator/TheHub's {{Facebook}} [[http://www.facebook.com/hubtvnetwork page]], Mighty Fine's [[TheMerch merchandise]] and listings of & advertising for said merchandise, a [[https://twitter.com/Fyre_flye/status/241037025476747265 tweet]] by show creator Creator/LaurenFaust, and a [[https://twitter.com/KeatingRogers/status/233652109290131457 tweet]] by writer Amy Keating Rogers.

* SpellMyNameWithAThe: Possibly.
DeadpanSnarker
* VagueAge: Their goggles hide whether or not they have bags under their eyes.
HonestAdvisor
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse:
** Six Wonder Bolts performed an acrobatic stunt before the start of the Best Young Flyer Competition. Three of them sat in the stands and were the only ones who tried to rescue Rarity later in the episode. The other three flew off the top of the screen and weren't seen again.
** Again in the Season 1 finale "Best Night Ever", we don't see what happens to Spitfire and Soarin' after Rainbow Dash catches the statue. There's also all the other Wonder Bolts who Rainbow Dash might've had better luck hanging out with, though her focusing on Spitfire and Soarin' makes sense in hindsight now that we know Spitfire is the captain and Soarin' may be second in command.
SassySecretary
* TheWorfEffect: For such an elite group, they have an abysmal track record of doing anything useful in dangerous situations.
ServileSnarker
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have A Blue Mane]]: Soarin' and a few others. Additionally a poster seen in "Friendship is Magic, part 1" shows a stylized depiction of three blue-haired Wonder Bolts.

-->Voiced by MarykeHendrikse

A yellow {{Pegasus}} mare with a fiery looking mane, Spitfire has a laid back and easy going personality in contrast to her appearance. "Hurricane Fluttershy" revealed that she is the leader of the Wonder Bolts (as many fans had assumed beforehand). She's apparently getting a partly-translucent [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-5gHDdPXnuFI/UCGjj6-abiI/AAAAAAAAzJg/vzpCI0FQNj4/s1600/3.jpg toy]].

* AllThereInTheManual: According to [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391528291 her and Soarin's trading card]], her cutie mark is the lightning bolt symbol shown on the female Wonder Bolts' flight suits (just like how Soarin's cutie mark is the winged lightning bolt symbol shown on the male Wonder Bolts' flight suits).
* BrownEyes
* TheCaptain
* FieryRedhead: Despite her name and appearance, Spitfire actually averts this trope quite nicely.
* HeyItsThatVoice: This asskicking Pegasus is a member of the [[BlackLagoon Lagoon Company]]. Don't mess with her.
* [[FlamingHair Flaming Mane]]: Spitfire's mane and tail resemble blazing flames.
* MeaningfulName: She is named after the WW2-era [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermarine_Spitfire Supermarine Spitfire]] Fighter Plane (perhaps the most iconic plane of the whole war).
* RedOniBlueOni: Despite her appearance, she's the Blue to Soarin's Red.
* [[ShesAManInJapan She's a Stallion in Poland]]: Possibly in the Polish dub. She has a male voice in both "Sonic Rainboom" and "The Best Night Ever", but it might just be an extreme case of CrossDressingVoices.

--> Voiced by MattHill

This lovable blue Pegasus stallion despite his goofy personality is one of the best fliers in Equestria. He ''really'' loves pies. He makes a small cameo in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2]]", dancing with Rainbow Dash and out of his flight suit to boot, instead wearing a uniform that implies he's second in command. He's apparently getting a partly-translucent [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XNB_kWOokEA/UCGjjpOnDLI/AAAAAAAAzJY/tk6KcWSgtyA/s1600/2.jpg toy]].

* AllThereInTheManual: [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391528291 His and Spitfire's trading card]] confirms that pie is his TrademarkFavoriteFood.
* BigEater: According to his teammate Spitfire, always gets hungry after a performance. When he finds Applejack's food cart, he goes absolutely nuts for one of her apple pies.
** Which has lead to {{Shipping}} between the two.
* BigNo: MYYYYYYYYYYY PIIIIIIEEEEEE!
* CrazyConsumption: Soarin' ''literally'' eats like a horse.
* GreenEyes
* HeyItsThatVoice: Soarin' is apparently a [[MobileSuitGundamSEED Coordinator]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Despite their mane colors, this is inverted as Soarin is the Red Oni to Spitfire's Blue Oni.
* SweetTooth: Soarin' has a big one for Applejack's pie, considering how fast he eats it at the Grand Galloping Gala.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pie.
* {{Tuckerization}}: He was named after Amy Keating Rogers' son Soren. Rogers was the writer for "Sonic Rainboom" and "The Best Night Ever", both of which featured the Wonder Bolts.
* VocalDissonance: He sounds younger than the bags under his eyes imply he is.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: His toy, if it is indeed him, uses the same mold as the female Wonder Bolts' toys, only being indicated as male by sporting the male Wonder Bolts' winged lightning bolt symbol rather than the female Wonder Bolts' plain lightning bolt symbol.

!!Fleetfoot
-->'''First Appearance:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]"

A blue pegasus with a white mane. She's apparently one of the smaller Wonder Bolts, but makes up for it with great speed. She wins the derby in "Sweet and Elite".

* FreezeFrameBonus: How she's identified. In "Sweet and Elite" its announced she's the winner of the race, however it's hard to tell which Wonder Bolt is Fleetfoot since they move so fast. Pausing at the right moment reveals she's the blue, white maned Wonder Bolt.
* OCStandIn: Has a rather notable example in the Blog/AskAPony community with [[http://ask-echo-wonderbolt.tumblr.com/ Echo]], the [[HandicappedBadass blind Wonder Bolt]]. The blog started a few days before "Sweet and Elite" aired. Echo's quite popular in that community despite Fleetfoot being little more than a named background pony.
* OffModel: In a wide shot in "The Best Night Ever", she's missing her tail.
* [[WhiteHairedPrettyGirl White Maned Pretty Filly]]

!!Rapidfire

Another participant in the "Sweet & Elite" race, Fancypants believed he would win, but Fleetfoot beat him and the other Wonder Bolts. Unlike Fleetfoot, which one he is isn't entirely clear other than "not Soarin'". it [[http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=83737&view=findpost&p=1960624 isn't specified]] which one he is but he's most likely the gray one with a white mane who appears at the start of, during and at the finish of the Derby; [[{{Blooper}} at least one other unnamed male Wonder Bolt appears in some shots, but not all of them]].

!![[AllThereInTheScript Breezie]]/[[AllThereInTheScript Surprise]]

-->'''First Appearance:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E3TheTicketMaster The Ticket Master]]"

A white Pegasus mare with a yellow mane. What sets her apart from the other unnamed Wonder Bolts is her resemblance to two different out-of-show ponies: [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/--gv0rMPY0o0/T16NUqJMUeI/AAAAAAAAibI/gLA9D84OsX8/s1600/5.jpg Breezie]], a [[GodCreatedCanonForeigner toy line exclusive pony]] with a windblown tree cutie mark and green eyes who "loves windy days," and [[http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/6947/mylittleponysurprisebyf.jpg Surprise]], an [[WhatCouldHaveBeen early design of Pinkie Pie]] (based on G1 Surprise) with a three-purple-balloons cutie mark and purple eyes. However, since the show hasn't revealed this Wonder Bolt's cutie mark or her eye color, it's unknown whether she really is either of those two ponies. An unnamed toy of her in her Wonder Bolts uniform is part of the Miniature Collection [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=452693148081461 Cloudsdale Set]]; [=ToyWiz=] [[http://www.toywiz.com/glindaspitfirerainbowdash.html has]] [[http://www.toywiz.com/mlpfimpvcspitfire.html identified]] her as Spitfire, but this appears to be a case of CowboyBebopAtHisComputer.

* AscendedExtra: Whether or not she's Breezie, she's still the first Wonder Bolt to get a toy (and if she is Breezie, then she's the only Wonder Bolt to get more than one toy). She's even on the banner at [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ubB0FzVcX-Q/T_4q4Fu0QEI/AAAAAAAAv2o/uMA9C9ZVKXo/s1600/1.jpg Comic Con]], among main characters and fan favorites with Spitfire & Soarin' nowhere in sight!
* AllThereInTheManual: If she is Breezie or Surprise, since the show's only revealed her coat and mane colors and her job.
* AllThereInTheScript: Both of her possible names.
* DependingOnTheArtist: In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess Secret of My Excess]]" (her only Season 2 appearance), she has a noticeably darker mane than in her other appearances (in the show, the ExpandedUniverse, and the toy line).
* {{Expy}}: If she is Breezie (who was a G3 pony) or Surprise (who was a G1 pony).
* LawyerFriendlyCameo: If she is Surprise.

[[caption-width-right:155:Who is responsible?!]]
Owner of the Best of the Best Boutique in Canterlot, he's looking for the newest fashions for Equestria.

* BrutalHonesty: He absolutely crushes Rarity during her first fashion show.
* CausticCritic: He's appalled by the second batch of dresses Rarity made and makes no secret of it, though Rarity ''herself'' considered them the ugliest dresses she'd ever made and was deeply embarrassed with having to show them to him. He's considerably more positive when convinced to give her original designs a chance however, exuberantly praising Rarity afterwards and placing a rush order for a dozen of each.
* CoolShades
* TheDandy
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He's merciless if somepony's designs are not up to his standards. However, if he thinks they have legitimate talent, he will do everything in his power to help them
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Based on fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld...white hair in a ponytail, sunglasses, high starched collar and a hand fan for a cutie mark...but with a heavy Long Island Lockjaw inflection to his voice.

A famous fashion photographer, she had been looking for the next big star in fashion but did she succeed by recruiting Fluttershy?

* AscendedGlitch: She has the same cutie mark as Twilight Sparkle. This was originally just one of the show's {{Blooper}}s, but [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391734445 her and Hoity Toity's trading card]] ran with it.
* TheCameo: Shows up at the same art show as Rarity in Season 2 during Rarity's song in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]".
* CoolShades: Never seen without them, much like Hoity Toity, although unlike Hoity, we don't even see her lower them.
* FanNickname: [[LadyGaga Pony Gaga]] or something similar since her taste in fashion is reminiscent of a certain singer.
* FunnyForeigner: Speaks with a German accent. Either it's a ShoutOut to [[TheIncredibles Edna Mode]] or maybe Karl Lagerfeld's accent that Hoity Toity didn't have was transferred to her.
* GenreSavvy: Completely understands that Fluttershy's {{Moe}} appeal will win the crowds.
* LargeHam
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBWW1RT2BGQ This]] plays whenever she's on screen.
* {{Moe}}: InUniverse: She seems to be a HUGE fan of this, as evidenced in her debut episode. All of the pictures she takes of Fluttershy specifically are her looking either shy or downcast or otherwise "I need a hug".
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Her pageboy haircut and sunglasses make her a caricature of Anna Wintour, the famously bitchy and eccentric editor-in-chief of ''Vogue''. Fans calling her "Pony Gaga" can be chalked up to SmallReferencePools. The [[CoolShades oversized sunglasses]] and [[WhiteHairedPrettyGirl white mane]] do give her an alarming resemblance to The Fame album cover.
* NotSoDifferent: Photo Finish is in many ways a CharacterExaggeration of Rarity; she has an even more overt foreign accent, is about 20% hammier and can be just as pushy and absorbed in her work as Rarity. She's even quite taken with Fluttershy, Rarity's closest friend.
* SmallNameBigEgo: She's so full of herself her ego arrives ten seconds before she does, though the Small Name part doesn't exactly work since she is extremely famous.

Princesses Celestia and Luna's far removed nephew. A white unicorn with a gold mane, he is Rarity's dream stallion. Rarity falls in love with him at first sight only to find out he's [[PrinceCharmless a self-obsessed jerk]].

* AdaptationNameChange: One of the French [[TieInNovel magazine stories]] refers to him as Vladímir.
* AllThereInTheManual: The show only calls him Celestia's nephew (which would make one think that he's Luna's son), but his [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391734445 trading card]] clarifies that his relation to Celestia and Luna is far removed. Creator/LaurenFaust had previously [[http://comments.deviantart.com/4/1603670/1932962564 stated]] that he's "the great great great great great great great great great great great (and probably even more greats) nephew on Celestia's and Luna's mother's side, about 52 times removed, roughly speaking."
* BlondGuysAreEvil: The way he treats Rarity ''easily'' qualifies him for this.
* BlueBlood: Probably his only good point.
* [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Everything's Better With Princes]]: WordOfGod was that he was supposed to be a duke, but the producers didn't think that the TargetAudience would know [[ViewersAreMorons what a duke was]]. {{Averted|Trope}} in practice as this guy does '''NOT''' make things better in ''any'' way possible.
** Never mind the fact that the demographic watches Disney's ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' and therefore sees a duke anyway...
* {{Jerkass}}: Repeatedly proves himself to be one in his behavior toward Rarity. Using her as a shield to keep himself from being splattered with cake is the very last straw.
* NoNameGiven: The first time he "appeared" which resulted in the Fan Nickname of "Prince Astron". His real name was revealed in the Season 1 finale.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: While we haven't seen many members of the royal family, he's the only one we've seen who isn't a WingedUnicorn (unless Princess Platinum was part of the same royal family).
* MeaningfulName: He's called "Blueblood"...because of his BlueBlood.
* PrinceCharmless: He ''lives and breathes'' this trope.
* [[PrincelyYoungMan Princely Young Stallion]]: The SpoiledBrat type though at first he seems like a PrinceCharming type.
* PickyEater: Considers Applejack's tasty apple treats unworthy of him, denigrating them as "common carnival fare."
* [[RichBitch Rich Bastard]]
* RoyalBrat
* TheScrooge: Took Rarity to Applejack's apple treats cart but expected Rarity to pay for it.
* ShadowArchetype: He's the male version of Rarity without any of her good qualities.

* UncannyFamilyResemblance: In the ExpandedUniverse, at least--[[CanonForeigner Léon]], Princess Celestia's 4-year-old cousin from one of the French [[TieInNovel magazine stories]], basically looks like Prince Blueblood as a [[WingedUnicorn Pegasus unicorn]] PaletteSwap of Rainbow Dash.

[[spoiler: It turns out that she's actually Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Twilight and Fluttershy donning a costume designed by Rarity in a ploy to break Rainbow Dash's heroism-inflated ego.]]

* TheAce: A mysterious super heroine superior to Rainbow Dash and with the super strength of an Earth Pony, the super magic of an Unicorn, the super flight of a Pegasus and the ability to predict the future? Totally a Mary Sue. [[spoiler:Actually she isn't. It was Applejack, Twilight, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie wearing the same costume and taking turns whenever their single abilities would be handy, everyone else just assumed she was just a single super-pony and their awe & hype did the rest.]]
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Fills this role in regards to Rainbow Dash.
* BadassCape: There was some justification behind it, since [[spoiler:it hides the lack of wings on a non-Pegasus.]]
* CaptainErsatz: Of any number of [[{{Zorro}} dark]] [[CyberSix caped]] [[DarkwingDuck super]][[{{Batman}} heroes]] you wish. Costume-wise, she bears a great resemblance to the {{Batman}} character known as [[Characters/BatmanAndBatFamily Spoiler]] aka Stephanie Brown.
* CoatHatMask
* [[spoiler:CollectiveIdentity]]
* ColorCodedWizardry: Her magic aura is the same red-violet color as those of Twilight Sparkle and her family as well as [[AllThereInTheScript Amethyst Star]] ([[DependingOnTheArtist when Amethyst Star's magic aura isn't pink]]). [[spoiler:And for good reason, since Twilight's the only unicorn who played her.]]

An important and influential business unicorn in Canterlot. He befriends Rarity in the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]" and introduces her to high society life. He makes a small cameo in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2]]", with Rarity.

* BlueBlood: If not RoyalBlood.
* BowtiesAreCool: He wears a rather snazzy one at the party at the end of the episode.
* HighClassGlass: And he adjusts it with his unicorn magic.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Pony]]: Unlike most high society ponies, he was actually quite nice to Rarity the whole time and even complimented the simple dress she made for Twilight.
* NonIndicativeName: He doesn't even wear pants let alone a fancy pair...
** MeaningfulName: Though "fancy pants" is a common term used by others to often describe members of the upper class.
*** And he actually is wearing pants...it's just that they only cover his forelegs.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* [[SharpDressedMan Sharp Dressed Stallion]]
* UnclePennybags: He finds the Mane 6 not named Rarity "charmingly rustic", and he's pretty humble otherwise.

A boisterous minotaur who runs a motivational seminar that helps meek ponies like Fluttershy become more assertive. Of course, his lessons aren't free...

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: He wears a necktie, nose-ring, headset and nothing else.
* AdaptationalVillainy: As the boss of Level 3 of Creator/TheHub's {{Web Game|s}} ''VideoGame/AdventurePonies''
* AntiVillain: Type IV. His episode presents him as the antagonist, and it appears that Hasbro considers him one of the series' villains if the villains poster and ''Adventure Ponies'' is anything to go by. However, he isn't evil at all. His intents are not in the least malicious and he actually learns from his encounter with Fluttershy.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: His self help methods have shades of this.
* AwesomeMcCoolname
* BadassBoast: He's made of them. All his mantras qualify as this.
* BoisterousBruiser
* ExactWords: "If you are not 100% satisfied [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You. Pay.]] ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Nothing]]''!" And he's reasonable enough to stick by them.
* {{Expy}}: His voice sounds almost like Mr. Satan from {{Dragonball}}. He also appears to be based on HulkHogan and a number of other professional wrestlers (See NoCelebritiesWereHarmed).
* GracefulLoser: When Fluttershy claims she doesn't owe him any money because she's not satisfied with the results from his seminar, he proves to be a minotaur of his word. He even considers it a learning experience he might integrate into his lessons.
* HammerSpace: Where ''did'' he get that basket from?
* HiddenDepths: At first glance, he looks like an abusive jerk trying to scam people with a fake self-help seminar. Turns out he's surprisingly well-behaved, emphatic and a bull of honor, plus his seminar ''truly'' worked, the only problem is that it worked ''too'' well. Even when he's struggling with Rarity and Pinkie Pie, he only used a fraction of his strength and he politely knocks at Fluttershy's door instead of smashing it as the audience is lead to believe he's going to do.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: If he didn't include the 100% satisfaction or your money back guarantee, he would have been within his rights to demand payment.
* HotBlooded
* InsistentTerminology: He's not a monster. He's a Minotaur. Notably, he isn't the one to insist on the terminology--of the three times it comes up, Fluttershy corrects the others when he isn't around, and when Rarity does say it to his face she corrects herself.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While he was a bit forceful on getting Fluttershy to pay up, he's reasonable enough to stick by his ExactWords. He even plans on using his encounter with Fluttershy as an inspiration for his next seminar.
* LargeAndInCharge
* LargeHam: He practically flexes in some way every time he talks.
* ALoadOfBull: A minotaur.
* MixAndMatchCritters: [[ClassicalMythology Traditionally]], the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minotaur Minotaur]] (literally, "''the bull of [King] [[AncientGreece Minos]]''") is a creature (unique, not a species, much like the original Pegasus) with the head of a bull and the body of a man, or at least somehow part man and part bull. Iron Will fits the first description down to the waist, below which he has hooves and a bull's tail, not uncommon in modern renditions of minotaurs. With a bipedal posture and one-third human body, or at the very least human hands and arms if that's interpreted as an upright bull's torso, he's the closest thing to a human the series has seen so far.
* {{Mooks}}: Not the evil types. He has goats that serve as his equipment crew and security.
* MrFanservice: Some fans actually find him attractive.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Iron Will appears to be an Expy of motivational speaker Tony Robbins. Also Mr.T, HulkHogan, Randy "Macho Man" Savage and [[DwayneJohnson Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson]].
** And the inspirational style of [[ImageMacro Courage Wolf]].
* RhymesOnADime: His inspirational {{Catch Phrase}}s. To name a few:
--> '''Iron Will:''' When somepony tries to block, show them that '''YOU ROCK'''!
--> '''Iron Will:''' Never apologize when you can criticize!
* RealMenWearPink: That's a cute little shopping basket he's got there.
* ShadowArchetype: A positive example for Fluttershy. He's much more assertive and gregarious than the meek, introverted pegasus.
* ShoutOut: Iron Will shares his name with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Will a different Iron Will]]. He also [[Creator/MrT pities the fool]] who doubts his methods.
* StarfishLanguage: Speaks fluent ''goat''.
* StealthPun: He's a minotaur who endorses becoming a bully to earn respect.
* TheVoiceless: His goat minions seem incapable of speech. They only do bleating sounds. Iron Will seems to understand them perfectly.
* ThirdPersonPerson: The way he says his name.
* TooImportantToWalk: His goat minions carry him around, it would seem.
* TestosteronePoisoning
* WouldHitAGirl: Iron Will tosses Rarity and Pinkie Pie aside (Into the mud in the case of the latter) and is willing to threaten to beat up Fluttershy if she doesn't pay him the fee -- although this was probably a bit of boisterous bluster for effect.

An important and influential business unicorn in Canterlot. He befriends Rarity in the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]" and introduces her to high society life. He makes a small cameo in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2

* BlueBlood: If not RoyalBlood.
* BowtiesAreCool: He wears a rather snazzy one at the party at the end of the episode.
* HighClassGlass: And he adjusts it with his unicorn magic.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Pony]]: Unlike most high society ponies, he was actually quite nice to Rarity the whole time and even complimented the simple dress she made for Twilight.
* NonIndicativeName: He doesn't even wear pants let alone a fancy pair...
** MeaningfulName: Though "fancy pants" is a common term used by others to often describe members of the upper class.
*** And he actually is wearing pants...it's just that they only cover his forelegs.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* [[SharpDressedMan Sharp Dressed Stallion]]
* UnclePennybags: He finds the Mane 6 not named Rarity "charmingly rustic", and he's pretty humble otherwise.

-->Voiced by TrevorDevall[[note]]according to [[http://www.alltasteexplosion.com/?p=2858 this]] interview with TrevorDevall[[/note]]

A boisterous minotaur who runs a motivational seminar that helps meek ponies like Fluttershy become more assertive. Of course, his lessons aren't free...

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: He wears a necktie, nose-ring, headset and nothing else.
* AdaptationalVillainy: As the boss of Level 3 of Creator/TheHub's {{Web Game|s}} ''VideoGame/AdventurePonies''
* AntiVillain: Type IV. His episode presents him as the antagonist, and it appears that Hasbro considers him one of the series' villains if the villains poster and ''Adventure Ponies'' is anything to go by. However, he isn't evil at all. His intents are not in the least malicious and he actually learns from his encounter with Fluttershy.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: His self help methods have shades of this.
* AwesomeMcCoolname
* BadassBoast: He's made of them. All his mantras qualify as this.
* BoisterousBruiser
* ExactWords: "If you are not 100% satisfied [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You. Pay.]] ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Nothing]]''!" And he's reasonable enough to stick by them.
* {{Expy}}: His voice sounds almost like Mr. Satan from {{Dragonball}}. He also appears to be
villain based on HulkHogan and a number of other professional wrestlers (See NoCelebritiesWereHarmed).
* GracefulLoser: When Fluttershy claims she doesn't owe him any money because she's not satisfied with the results from his seminar, he proves to be a minotaur of his word. He even considers it a learning experience he might integrate into his lessons.
* HammerSpace: Where ''did'' he get that basket from?
* HiddenDepths: At first glance, he looks like
an abusive jerk trying to scam people with a fake self-help seminar. Turns out he's surprisingly well-behaved, emphatic and a bull of honor, plus his seminar ''truly'' worked, the only problem is that it worked ''too'' well. Even when he's struggling with Rarity and Pinkie Pie, he only used a fraction of his strength and he politely knocks at Fluttershy's door instead of smashing it as the audience is lead to believe he's going to do.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: If he didn't include the 100% satisfaction or your money back guarantee, he would have been within his rights to demand payment.
* HotBlooded
* InsistentTerminology: He's not a monster. He's a Minotaur. Notably, he isn't the one to insist on the terminology--of the three times it comes up, Fluttershy corrects the others when he isn't around, and when Rarity does say it to his face she corrects herself.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While he was a bit forceful on getting Fluttershy to pay up, he's reasonable enough to stick by his ExactWords. He even plans on using his encounter with Fluttershy as an inspiration for his next seminar.
* LargeAndInCharge
* LargeHam: He practically flexes in some way every time he talks.
* ALoadOfBull: A minotaur.
* MixAndMatchCritters: [[ClassicalMythology Traditionally]], the
[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minotaur Minotaur]] (literally, "''the bull of [King] [[AncientGreece Minos]]''") is a creature (unique, not a species, much like org/wiki/Ahuizotl_(creature) Ahuizotl]]. He's the original Pegasus) with big bad of the head of a bull book ''Daring Do and the body of a man, or at least somehow part man and part bull. Iron Will fits Quest for the first description down to the waist, below which he has hooves and a bull's tail, not uncommon in modern renditions of minotaurs. With a bipedal posture and one-third human body, or at the very least human hands and arms if that's interpreted as an upright bull's torso, Sapphire Stone''. And since he's an in-universe fictional character, he's a hilariously cliched and over the closest thing top bad guy.

* [[ADogNamedDog An Ahuizotl Named Ahuizotl]]: They can get away with this since there aren't many others
to a human confuse it with.
* ArchEnemy: Of Daring Do.
* AztecMythology: Where he originated from.
* BigBad: Of ''[[ShowWithinAShow Daring Do and
the series has seen so far.
* {{Mooks}}: Not
Quest for the evil types. He has goats that serve as Sapphire Stone]]''.
* BigNo: Of course he had to release one of these.
* BondVillainStupidity: Instead of having
his equipment crew and security.
* MrFanservice: Some fans actually find him attractive.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Iron Will appears
cat minions take care of Daring Do directly, he opts to be leave her in an Expy ancient DeathTrap. Granted, it's a [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill darn good]] deathtrap.
* CatsAreMean: Has a number
of motivational speaker Tony Robbins. Also Mr.T, HulkHogan, Randy "Macho Man" Savage and [[DwayneJohnson Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson]].
dangerous big cats--and one cute white kitten--as his EvilMinions.
** And RightHandCat
* DiabolicalMastermind
* EvilIsHammy: He could rival Discord for this trope.
* LargeHam: He's a character in a book, after all.
* OurMonstersAreWeird: Ahuizotl don't usually appear much in popular culture do they?
* PrehensileTail: The production team have ShownTheirWork; this is one of
the inspirational style of [[ImageMacro Courage Wolf]].
* RhymesOnADime: His inspirational {{Catch Phrase}}s. To name a few:
--> '''Iron Will:''' When somepony tries to block, show them that '''YOU ROCK'''!
--> '''Iron Will:''' Never apologize when you can criticize!
ahuizotl's most notable features in Aztec myth.
* RealMenWearPink: That's a cute little shopping basket he's got there.
* ShadowArchetype: A positive example for Fluttershy. He's much more assertive and gregarious than the meek, introverted pegasus.
* ShoutOut: Iron Will shares his name with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Will a different Iron Will]]. He also [[Creator/MrT pities the fool]] who doubts his methods.
* StarfishLanguage: Speaks fluent ''goat''.
* StealthPun: He's a minotaur who endorses becoming a bully to earn respect.
* TheVoiceless: His goat minions seem incapable
Plenty of speech. They only do bleating sounds. Iron Will seems to understand them perfectly.
* ThirdPersonPerson: The way he says his name.
* TooImportantToWalk: His goat minions carry him around, it would seem.
* TestosteronePoisoning
* WouldHitAGirl: Iron Will tosses Rarity and Pinkie Pie aside (Into the mud in the case of the latter) and is willing to threaten to beat up Fluttershy if she doesn't pay him the fee -- although this was probably

[[folder:Historical Figures]]

!!Tropes shared by most of them

* AlliterativeName: Star Swirl the Bearded. Also Clover the Clever, Princess Platinum and Private Pansy if you include titles.
* BeleagueredAssistant: To say that the assistants were annoyed at the behavior of their leaders would have been an understatement.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The assistants took out the [[EldritchAbomination Windigos]] and saved Equestria. As always, this involved [[CircleOfFriendship blasting them with]] [[ThePowerOfFriendship weaponized friendship]]. Noteable because it was ''accidental''.
* FantasticRacism: This was an unfortunate trait of the three races before they were united under Equestria's founding: The Earth Ponies resented the Pegasi and Unicorns for messing with the weather and their demands for food. The Pegasi were angry at the Earth Ponies for not being able to grow food and the Unicorns were viewed as too haughty by the other two. Especially evident in the leaders.
* PosthumousCharacter: This is kind of a requirement to be listed here.
* RedOniBlueOni: Each of the three leaders of the pony races had this kind of relationship with their assistants. The Leaders being red while the assistants were blue.

!!Star Swirl the Bearded

-->'''First Mention:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed "Luna Eclipsed"]]

The father of the amniomorphic spell and mentor to Clover the Clever, this influential yet obscure unicorn created more than 200 spells and was the most important conjurer of the pre-classical era. A wing in the Canterlot Archives (the most secure section, in fact) and a shelf in the Canterlot Library of Magic are both named after him. Twilight Sparkle dressed up as him for Nightmare Night during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed Luna Eclipsed]]". While there is an Earth pony mare in the toy line named Star Swirl, this Star Swirl seems to be a completely different character, judging by Twilight's statements about him and by his appearance in the [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch art print]] ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=3353 Legends of Equestria]]'' [[http://fav.me/d4w9abd by Damian Ziomek]].

* AllThereInTheManual: We haven't even seen a picture of him in the show, but he's appeared in the abovementioned [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch art print]].
* TheArchmage: Probably an obscenely powerful mage considering that Twilight calls him the "most important conjurer of the pre-classical era."
* BadassBeard
* BilingualBonus / StealthPun: Star Swirl the Bearded is the master of the amniomorphic spell. Amnio means 'bowl' and morphic means 'form' which makes him a bearded bowl-making spellcaster... a [[HarryPotter hairy potter]].
* {{Cosplay}}: Not he himself, but Twilight dresses as him for Nightmare Night becoming a "[[WholesomeCrossdresser Cross]]player" by doing so.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[HarryPotter Dumbledore]] and [[LordOfTheRings Gandalf]].
* GenderFlip: The toy Star Swirl has always been female, even in G4, but the name is being used for a male character in this show.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In the [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch art print]].
* TheMagnificent
* TheMentor: To Clover the Clever.
* NiceHat
* OfficialFanSubmittedContent: His AllThereInTheManual coat color and GlowingEyesOfDoom from the [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch art print]].
* [[PalsWithJesus Pals With Princesses]]: Princess Luna may have known him personally.
* RobeAndWizardHat
* WizardBeard

!!Clover the Clever

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria, Star Swirl the Bearded's protegee and assistant to Princess Platinum. Played by Twilight Sparkle in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* {{Expy}}/GenderFlip: Possibly of G2's [[http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/Clever_Clover Clever Clover]].
** It's not been officially confirmed as a gender flip since the ''character'' is never addressed by gender in the play and [[CrossDressingVoices girls playing male characters]] happens in real life.
* MagicKnight
* TheMagnificent
* [[StraightMan Straight Mare]]: To Platinum.

!!Princess Platinum

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and daughter of the Unicorn King. Played by Rarity in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* ErmineCapeEffect: Wears only her royal robes, due to the LimitedWardrobe of the episode.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses
* PimpedOutDress: Her [[PrettyInMink ermine-trimmed]] gown.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Her gown is purple.
* PrincessesRule: Possibly; we never see her father and she's the one who goes off to found Equestria, not him.
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia
* RoyalBrat: Until the Windigos' defeat, that is.

!!Commander Hurricane

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and the leader of the Pegasi. Played by Rainbow Dash in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* AmbiguousGender: Hurricane is referred to as "sir"[[hottip:*:Which can be gender neutral in certain situations]] multiple times as well as being named a "brute" (an insult which is usually AlwaysMale) throughout the play but Pansy calls Hurricane "her" multiple times and the role is played by the female Rainbow Dash.
* AwesomeMcCoolname
* BadBoss: To Private Pansy.
* GeneralRipper
* HotBlooded
* {{Jerkass}}
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: After the Windigos' defeat.
* [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race Pony]]

!!Private Pansy

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and subordinate of Commander Hurricane. Played by Fluttershy in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* FailOSuckyname: Contrasted with her commanding officer's. On its own "Pansy" wouldn't be too bad as a pony name...but "Private Pansy" is possibly the worst name imaginable for a military setting.
* ShrinkingViolet
* [[StraightMan Straight Mare]]: To Hurricane

!!Chancellor Puddinghead

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and leader of the Earth ponies. Played by Pinkie Pie in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* TheCaligula: A mild example before the Windigos' defeat.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* InsaneTrollLogic: if Pinkie's interpretation of the character is anything to go by, Puddinghead pretty much runs on this. She was elected because she can think outside of the box, which means she can also think [[CrowningMomentOfFunny inside the chimney]]. ''Can you think inside a chimney?''
* NiceHat: Wears a ''bowl of pudding'' on her head.
* NoSenseOfDirection: Believes wearing an upside-down map on her face is all the direction she needs. Of course whether it's upside or not is irrelevant; [[InsaneTrollLogic the world is round; there is no up or down.]]
* [[PointyHairedBoss Pointy Maned Boss]]: It's a wonder the earth ponies managed to function with her in charge.
** And to make matters worse? She was ELECTED!

!!Smart Cookie

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve "Hearth's Warming Eve"]]

One of the founders of Equestria and secretary to Chancellor Puddinghead. Played by Applejack in the Hearth's Warming Eve pageant.

* HonestAdvisor
* SassySecretary
* ServileSnarker
* [[StraightMan Straight Mare]]: To Puddinghead.
