** Her rivalry with Trixie fell into this as of Season 6. At first, Twilight was [[HumbleHero so uninterested in it]] that the whole plot of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters Boast Busters]]" was to convince Twilight to stand up to her for her friends, Then "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E5MagicDuel Magic Duel]]" has Twilight stand up to Trixie only because she was [[DrunkOnTheDarkSide an actual danger]]. Now Twilight is shown to be genuinely envious of Trixie for her friendship with Starlight Glimmer. Though she may just be looking out for Starlight, and doesn't believe Trixie is [[ToxicFriendInfluence the best influence for her]].

* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Everyone on the show so far seems to like, or at least not hate, her. Her friends and family all love her, and the Princesses all think she deserves to be an alicorn. Everyone she knows seems to be on at least friendly terms with her, and she has a lot of friends, even if you don't count the rest of the main cast. Even those who were once her enemies, such as Discord, Sunset and Starlight soon call her their friend. Trixie and Chrysalis seem to be the only exceptions to this.

* {{Flanderization}}: In the first season, Twilight was orderly and no nonsense, but to a fairly lucid degree, a lot of it owed to [[FishOutOfWater her inexperience with social life]]. By the start of the second season her meticulous habits are exaggerated to cartoony measures, with a lot of gags based on her SuperOCD neuroses. Inverted in other aspects, she has become far less [[GrumpyBear acerbic]] and more outgoing and friendly, for example.

* 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/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls 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.

** Made even more obvious in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E24MysteryOnTheFriendshipExpress "MMMystery on the Friendship Express"]] when Twilight, relegated as TheWatson to Pinkie's Franchise/SherlockHolmes role, shoots down Pinkie's ridiculously wild accusations so often that they exchange roles with no argument from Pinkie.

** {{Deconstructed|Trope}} in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero "Lesson Zero"]]. When she approaches her friends for help on completing her weekly friendship report and they dismiss it as a trivial problem, Twilight believes she is the only one who understands just how dire the situation truly is, but the audience clearly sees that it is Twilight who is bottoming out on sanity.

* ScheduleFanatic: Most notably seen in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E20ItsAboutTime "It's About Time"]], where she's obsessed about how she's going to make time to make next month's schedule because she didn't leave any room to do so in this month's schedule.

* SeriouslyScruffy: She has a tendency to turn into a disheveled mess whenever stressed or preoccupied. She usually ends up turning her library inside out in the process. {{Exaggerated|Trope}} in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero "Lesson Zero"]] (where forgetting to write a letter causes her to go completely insane).
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Not to an excess, but she has a more advanced vocabulary and more correct grammar than her friends. This makes her a {{Foil}} to Rainbow Dash and Applejack, both of whom tend towards BuffySpeak, and to Pinkie Pie, who is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.

** She instantly forgives her brother, her friends, and her mentor for disbelieving and abandoning her in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 "A Canterlot Wedding"]], saying it wasn't their fault since the BigBad had successfully fooled ''everyone'', even though Twilight had been brought to tears by their actions.
** Likewise, she forgives Trixie for her reign of terror over Ponyville in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E5MagicDuel "Magic Duel"]], recognizing that Trixie's over-the-top evil was the result of her being DrunkOnTheDarkSide from the [[ArtifactOfDoom Alicorn Amulet]].

** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E26TwilightsKingdomPart2 "Twilight's Kingdom - Part 2"]], her extraordinary act of forgiveness towards [[spoiler:Discord]] enables her to save Equestria when all hope is lost.
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E26TheCutieRemarkPart2 "The Cutie Re-Mark"]] Starlight Glimmer engaged in TimeTravel shenanigans which were explicitly engineered to [[ItsPersonal personally]] hurt Twilight and created several [[BadFuture Bad Futures]] for all of Equestria. Twilight not only forgives her, but actually takes her on as a student, recognizing Starlight's amazing potential. Notably, in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E1TheCrystallingPart1 "The Crystalling"]] she summarizes this decision -- and the others by implication -- by saying that she's "not one to dwell on the past".

* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Everyone on the show so far seems to like, or at least not hate, her. Her friends and family all love her, and the Princesses all think she deserves to be an alicorn. Everyone she knows seems to be on at least friendly terms with her, and she has a lot of friends, even if you don't count the rest of the main cast. Even those who were once her enemies, such as Sunset and Starlight soon call her their friend. Trixie and Chrysalis seem to be the only exceptions to this.

** Following her transformation into an alicorn, Twilight has developed a tendency to flap her wings whenever she gets excited.



* ModestRoyalty: Twilight has been characterized as a [[HumbleHero Humble Heroine]] several times in the series, and in "Sweet and Elite" she loves the simple dress Rarity made for her saying that the simple and practical outfit was a perfect match. Both characteristics are a good fit for this trope.
