* TheHero: Big time. All of the main six count, really, But she's the Most Prominent Example.

* TheHero: Big %%%% "Big time. All of the main six count, really, But she's the Most Prominent Example." is not context. It says absolutely nothing about the trope and she fits.
%%%%* TheHero:



** She makes checklists for ''everything''. Including checklists of items she needs to make checklists for. She then lists "complete making a checklist" on those checklists, and at the bottom of the checklists includes reminders to double-check and triple-check them the checklists make absolutely sure she didn't miss anything.

* TomboyPrincess: As of Season 3's finale. While she's only slightly tomboyish, her focus on her studies is, relatively speaking, not quite as conventionally feminine as Rarity's fashion design, Fluttershy's animal care, or Pinkie Pie's catering, making her more tomboyish than average, at least as far as the main 6 characters go. She's certainly the most tomboyish of the princesses; Celestia and Cadance are each clearly shown to be acting according to the in-universe traditions of the lands they have authority over, and Luna [[FishOutOfTemporalWater thinks]] she is.

Added DiffLines:

** In "Shadow Play", Twilight is determined to [[spoiler: free Star Swirl and his fellow Pillars of Olde Equestria from Limbo, ignoring the possible risks. This leads to the Pony of Shadows being freed also, something Star Swirl admonishes Twilight for. Twilight becomes so desperate to prove herself to her idol that she doesn't protest when Star Swirl scoffs at Starlight's suggestion that Stygian can be redeemed (which Starlight [[WhatTheHellHero calls her out on]]).]]

* YourSizeMayVary: Since turning into an allicorn, Twilight Sparkle is depicted as slightly taller than the other ponies, though it can vary anywhere between looking only slightly more upright, to coming off as incredibly lanky next to them. Parodied in one episode where she takes offence to a incredibly gangly doodle of her by Rainbow Dash.

Parodied in one episode where she takes offence to a incredibly gangly doodle of her by Rainbow Dash. Meanwhile some promotional art features her with the same proportions as her unicorn form (often due to being modified early art), while her ''Equestria Girls'' human form is no taller (if not slightly shorter) than most of the other girls.

* ABoyAndHisX: A Young Lady and her Baby Dragon. She hatched Spike as the entrance exam for a magic school, but he's more like her sidekick/little brother/son.

* HumbleHero: Wants nothing to do with being associated with the greatness of her deeds. Rather, she wants to be viewed as an ordinary unicorn, unlike her ShadowArchetype [[Characters/FriendshipIsMagicAntagonists Trixie]] and her {{foil}} Rainbow Dash. On the other hoof, Twilight's character also sets the difference between plain out narcissism and well intentioned self righteousness, and sometimes can't resist acting haughty due to her role as Celestia's apprentice and very often considering herself the [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Mare]].\\\
This is why she makes such a great {{Foil}} to [[Characters/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsSunsetShimmer Sunset Shimmer]]. Twilight's humility is shown when she is content being Celestia's student, never desiring more than to learn and help others, and never thought of herself as truly ''better'' than others. Sunset's arrogance is shown when she only thought of herself, desired more and more power, and thought herself better than everypony else because of her status, and was never content with merely being Celestia's student. However, the greatest difference comes down to their thoughts on gaining the position of princess. Twilight never desired the crown yet proved deserving of it, while Sunset coveted the crown yet proved ''undeserving'' of it.

** She has this reaction in the 2017 movie when [[spoiler:her actions cost them the last chance they had of stopping the Storm King when the seaponies were about to help them, and she takes her built up frustrations out on her friends by saying things would be better if she didn't have friends like them.]]

* DecoyProtagonist: Serves as one in both ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'', where Sunset Shimmer's CharacterDevelopment ultimately takes center stage, and for the ''Franchise/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' sub-series as a whole, where Sunset Shimmer supplants her as TheHero by the end of the second film. She doesn't even appear in third movie, replaced by her human counterpart who is an antagonist. [[spoiler: Aside from the stinger after the credits that is.]]

** Played stright in "Shadow Play - Part 1" where her over-enthusiasm [[spoiler: for releasing the Pillars of Equestria (and Star Swirl the Bearded in particular)]] causes her to ignore the fact that it would also release the Pony of Shadows. This is despite Starlight warning her that the original spell was done the way it was for a reason.

** Generally Twilight is TheSmartGuy with a [[TheFinickyOne neurotic and slightly overbearing streak]]. This can go anyway from being a rational OnlySaneMan ([[RightlySelfRighteous if a slightly condescending and impatient one]]) to an extremely pushy and overexcitable DitzyGenius. She can also be extremely laid back and indifferent to personal presentation or a stuck up, [[SuperOCD detail obsessed prude]].

[[SanitySlippage borderline unstable]] DitzyGenius.
** Her hubris is particularly inconsistent. Generally she has an InferioritySuperiorityComplex, but she can either be a HumbleHeroine whose a bit too over preoccupied in being accepted, or a complete InsufferableGenius that insists that everyone follow her direction [[CondescendingCompassion should they not survive without her]].
She can also be extremely laid back and [[{{Adorkable}} dorkishly]] indifferent to personal presentation or a stuck up, [[SuperOCD detail obsessed prude]].
