** Greatly averted in Season 4 as she was able to go head to head with a powered-up Tirek. By this time though, she's an Alicorn, a race said to embody traits of all 3 races (In this case the Strengh of an Earth Pony), meaning it's probable she just got stronger physically due to this alone.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* RealityWarper: Twilight has the range of effects but not quite the raw power of someone like Discord. She has turned an animal into a fruit, and switched around the cutie marks of her friends, [[ScrewDestiny effectively changing their destinies]]. In both cases it was done by accident.

The protagonist of the series, a unicorn ([[LateArrivalSpoiler who later becomes an alicorn]]) from Canterlot who serves as Princess Celestia's apprentice. She's less than thrilled at first about the suggestion that she should try making friends, but naturally winds up [[FireForgedFriends giving it a shot]]. She has a natural talent for Magic that goes far beyond what most unicorns are capable of. She's also very intelligent, levelheaded, and organized, making her a great unofficial leader for the Mane Six. However, her neuroses sometimes cause problems.

** The first three seasons have her meet her [[TrueCompanions five best friends in a single day,]] showing her ability to easily [[MagneticHero befriend them and others in spite of her initial reluctance to socialize with them or others,]] before teaming up with them and [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu defeat Nightmare Moon with the help of the Elements of Harmony, restoring Princess Luna in the process.]] Through CharacterDevelopment across the seasons, Twilight TookALevelInBadass to become TheHero that always plays the largest role in saving Equestria, TheAce in the eyes of her friends, and TheLeader of the Mane Six. She was also implied to be TheChosenOne as her Element of Magic gives her a CoolCrown and she is the [[ProtagonistPowerUpPrivileges only one of the Mane Six that is turned into an alicorn]] (so far at least.

* BarrierWarrior: She can create force-fields that she can move as seen in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E2TheReturnOfHarmonyPart2 "Return of Harmony - Part 2"]], [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E24MysteryOnTheFriendshipExpress "MMMMystery on the Friendship Express"]] (at around 1:18) and [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E23PonyvilleConfidential "Ponyville Confidential"]]. She seems to have gotten that spell from her brother. At least some of them include AntiMagic.

* {{Fangirl}}: She is one for the Unicorn wizard Star Swirl the Bearded;
** She dresses up as him for Nightmare Night in "Luna, Eclipsed".
** She and Princess Cadance attend the Star Swirl the Bearded Travelling Museum in "Three's a Crowd".
** In "A Hearth's Warming Tail", she briefly goes on a tangent about how skilled and knowledgable he was, before Spike snaps her out of it.
-->'''Twilight''': It was said of Snowfall that she was almost as studied as Star Swirl the Bearded. Almost, since everypony knows that Star Swirl was an expert at everything from transfiguration, dimensional calibration, teleportation—
-->'''Spike''': [[DeadpanSnarker We get it, Star Swirl's awesome]].



* OutOfFocus: In Season 2, compared to her role in Season 1. She had only four focus episodes, has been in more of a supporting character role in most episodes, and has been missing entirely from three. Quite odd considering that she's supposed to be the lead protagonist of the mane cast. The writers clearly reveled in not needing to shoehorn her into every story after "Lesson Zero", which is more or less a good thing, considered a sign of flexibility on their part. Twilight appears to have lived up to her lead protagonist reputation once more in Season 3 to a certain degree where she's been generally of at least moderate importance in most episodes, typically not being present only when it wouldn't make sense for her to show up. Season 4 was a step backwards, giving her about the same amount of exposure as Season 2. Ironically considering her ascension to princesshood in the season prior, she received only six focus episodes. Of these six, two were the premiere, two were the finale, and the remaining two, "Twilight Time" and "Three's A Crowd", focused more on the Cutie Mark Crusaders and Discord respectively. She has been remarkably out of focus in Season 6 thus far as well.
