to:

* VagueAge: All of them are somewhere in or around the young adult area. Cheerilee is the oldest, and Raindrops is slightly younger than all the others, but beyond that it's a toss-up.



* {{CelibateHero}}/{{Asexuality}}: [[CrowningMomentOfFunny One scene]] in ''Helping... Hands?'' implies her to be a virgin, and indeed she seems to be unnerved by the sex in general:

* DisappearedDad: Her mother died while Trixie was very young, but her father was an utter no-show.



* {{Invisibility}}: Trixie possesses several ways of doing this with magic and she is ''very'' good at it. A second spell will cancel out the sound her hooves make when trotting.

* LiesToChildren: Not usually, but during ''Tales of Ponyville'', when she gives the "that's how everypony looked" explanation on her (''very'') 80s-esque appearance in an old photo, she leaves out the fact that "everypony" actually means a very select few.



* CasualKink: It's implied that she and Bon Bon have occasionally done things to "spice up" their love life.

* NervousWreck: Described as being particularly nervous a lot.



* TechnicianVersusPerformer: Given as the reason why she never just ''told'' anyone what the deal with the Symphony of the Moon and Sun is. Falling heavily on the "performer" side, she feels explaining how the song was meant to be would ruin it.



* AndThatLittleGirlWasMe: Tries telling Raindrops about his past, [[spoiler:to make her feel better after sleeping with Kindle]]. He's not good at hiding the fact he's talking about himself.
* TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest: [[spoiler:''Voice of the Sun'' has him explain that back home there was a girl he had a crush on, but she didn't return it. Since then, Bootheel's been doing whatever he can to fill the void. Mostly via sex, and plenty of it.]]

* [[spoiler: BadassNormal: She's an earth pony, and a musician, but carrying her cello around so much means she's surprisingly capable of dishing out the hurt when she needs to.

** Messing with education, for one. She's the first of the Bearers to take a dislike for Vicerein Puissance because the mare had been manipulating things in her province to make standardised testing easier. During their visit to Naqah, she's immediately furious when she hears Grev objected to the sultan's attempts to reform education.

* DreadfulMusician: According to Lyra, who is admittedly an expert.

to:

* DreadfulMusician: According Oh, yes. Trixie's singing is repeatedly said to Lyra, who is admittedly an expert.be dreadful. She's tone-deaf, has a limited repertoire and even less knowledge of music, and what few songs she does know she can just about hum. But since she can't always remember all of them, she just resorts to humming the same bit over and over.
* DrinkOrder: ''Monsieur Bourbon''. Failing that, or if she's not allowed alcohol, she likes strawberry soy milk. Now if only somepony stopped buying it all before she can...



* NotAMorningPerson: She's not as bad as Lyra, since she has to get up for her job, but several years living in Canterlot as Luna's student mean she's not at her best in the morning.



* TheLeader: Tended to take this role in ''Longest Night, Longest Day,'' usually being the one to come up with plans of action.

* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Lyra neglected to mention the Bearer's temporary alliance with Corona at Tambelon. As a result, Bon Bon has several panic attacks on seeing Corona, since she thinks the mare is still the murderously angry mare she was when she got out of the sun.



* [[WiseBeyondTheirYears Wise Beyond Her Years]]: Dinky's no genius, but she's really mature for her age.

to:

* WeaksauceWeakness: Corona's blessing allows him to recover from just about any injury in a few seconds, but being based on fire magic, it doesn't work if he gets wet.

* BreakTheCutie: Learning she isn't Celestia, and that the real Celestia is a raving nutjob who's first encounter with her ends with Celestia threatening to burn out her mind and enter it makes a severe dent in her cheerful persona. She does eventually recover, though.

** The death of Cartasole and their adopted children hit her so hard she sealed herself in a cave for a good few decades.



* JumpedAtTheCall: Grew up as an earth pony, but around when other foals were earning their cutie marks, she manifested her horn and wings. She was told that she was the reincarnation of all that was good in Celestia, and has accepted this as fact and is eagerly looking forward to becoming the sun deity.

* NeverGrewUp: In a sense. Despite being 20 years old in ''An Early Reunion,'' and so a full adult, Cadence has yet to earn her cutie mark.
** She does earn it a few years later, though, specifically around the time that Cartasole proposed to her.

* BigDamnHeroes: She makes a dramatic entrance at Tambelon [[spoiler:putting a dent in Bray's smug exterior and smashing apart the force of golems he had. Of course, the Bearers aren't exactly grateful...]]



* CelibateHero: Well, not "hero" at the moment, but part of the reason Corona is so offended by Cheerilee's flirting at her is because she finds the very idea of a ''peasant'' flirting with her outrageous. Being a thousand years out of touch does that to a pony. She does mention, when discussing Cadence, that she and Luna had tried in the past to have children, to no luck.



* EntertaininglyWrong: Part of the reason she's so distrustful of Luna in the modern day and age was because [[spoiler:Luna had used some of Tirek's power to become Nightmare Moon and fight her. Corona didn't know the Elements of Harmony had purged her of the dark magic when they banished her, and believes up until the Bearers angrily tell on Tambelon her that Luna's still corrupted.]]



* TheGhost: Mentioned many times throughout the Lunaverse's run, including the first episode. No appearances at all yet, though.

-->'''RainbowDoubleDash:''' Within the context of the Lunaverse, there is ''nothing'' beyond Discord and the Elements; they're the top-tier movers and shakers... On a scale of 1 to 10, Discord is ''the guy making the chart'', completely outside any kind of power rating...And the Elements of Harmony are even ''stronger'', but limited by the fact that they have no (discernible) independent will of their own and so must be manipulated by (comparatively, even alicorns count for this purpose) mortal beings, who have mortal minds and mortal limitations on what the Elements can do.

* MeaningfulName: His name's a takeoff of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobby_Fischer Bobby Fischer]]; both being talented chess players, incredibly paranoid and fanatic racists.



* NotSoDifferent: Exactly the same kind of tryant as Corona, except on a smaller scale. Even has the exact same justification for his actions.

!!Regal Tomes
!!!Pony working on translating a zebra spellbook

* BlindIdiotTranslation: He is one of the idiots doing the translating. Consequently, the spells come out incredibly poorly, [[spoiler:and Lyra's turned into a human for a day.]]
* TheBusCameBack: He returns in ''Through Fire and Flames'', [[spoiler:where he apologises for that whole mess with the zebra book.]]




to:

* LargeHam: He was an actor, after all.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: During a fight between himself and Lyra, some of his ribs get broken, and possibly more. He tries shrugging it off until he gets back to his Queen, before passing out.
* PlayingWithFire: Thanks to a boon of Corona's, he can generate small fires by flapping his wings.



* ArtifactOfDoom: [[spoiler: The Rainbow of Darkness.]]

to:

* ArtifactOfDoom: [[spoiler: The [[spoiler:He has some Salamanders steal the Rainbow of Darkness.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EyeScream: He became blinded because, while in a mood about Luna killing his family, he stared into the sun for an entire day.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: His name means "He Who Swore Revenge Against The Sun".

** ''Helping... Hands?'' makes clear just how good she is: Most illusion spells can be easily seen through, if somepony knows what they're doing or what to look for. Trixie is able to cast enough illusions in her duplication of Lyra to make it nigh-perfect, so much so that Lyra can't find any actual flaws outside of the feel of her fur (Trixie's is smoother than Lyra's).



* FunetikAccent: Exactly how phonetic depends on who's writing. [=GrassAndClouds2=] tends to write her pronounciation of "me" as "ma" on several occasions.




!!Truffle Muncher
!!!Colt. Skilled at finding food.

* BigEater: Since his special talent is all about finding food.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: He regards being able to find (and then eat) food as the best thing ever, but then he is a kid.

!!Vast Volumes
!!An incredibly stupid translator who worked in Canterlot, and one of the few ponies in Equestria who can read zebra. Unicorn.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: She is the idiot doing the translating, along with two others, who divided up the task of translating between them in the most inefficient means possible. [[spoiler:And because of that, Lyra's turned into a human.]]
* FantasticRacism: She's a tribalist, thinking all earth ponies are ignorant.
* TooDumbToLive: Outside of the already mentioned idiocy with the translating, she bad-mouths earth ponies right in front of Lyra and [=BonBon=], who'd be perfectly fine with getting rid of at least ''one'' of the three.
* WhoNamesTheirKidDude: Trixie snarks about her name, and if there hadn't been more pressing matters admits she'd probably have gotten into a long conversation about it.
