* LukeIAmYourFather: She and Scootaloo are cousins in this continuity.

* [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Amazingly Embarrassing Auntie]]: She's very candid about discussing intimacy, much to Dash's frustration.
* HairDecs: Wore a big blue tail-bow as a filly, then changed that to having ribbons braided into her mane as she got older. As an adult, she doesn't wear anything.

[[folder:Ponyville Citizens of Varying Importance]]
!!Bubblecup (Derpy Hooves)
* {{Malaproper}}: When she gets excited or upset, she struggles with her tenses and picks words that aren't ''quite'' what she meant.

* ConspiracyTheorist: She'd love to share everything she suspects with the readers, but the narrative keeps insisting she's unimportant.

[[folder:Game Denizens]]
!!Golden Rule
The White Queen of Prospit. Though she does her best to guide her people and serve Skaia, she struggles to rein in her overly sharp tongue.
* BlessedWithSuck: She's completely aware of what the future holds for her.
* ChessMotifs: Her legs are segmented in such a way as to evoke the base of a chess piece. She also has a sort of sweeping collar/neckline and a simple white crown, all driving home playing piece imagery.
* FantasticRacism: She considers both Applejack and Twilight Sparkle to be perfect examples of Dersites; due to this, she's less than pleased at having Applejack as 'the Heir'.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: This stereotype actually led to her anger issues, as Skaia figured that queens ''should'' be evil and compromised by making her a 'wickedly good queen'. Golden Rule isn't too thrilled to hear that.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The game hasn't even started yet, and Golden Rule has already managed to [[spoiler:alienate two of her three princesses. Not clear yet if she'll manage to go three for three]].
* NotHelpingYourCase: Her dismissive attitude towards her subjects and insistance that she be permitted to listen to [[spoiler:a private record]] leads to her very quickly [[spoiler:alienating Rarity]].
* SmiteMeOhMightySmiter: Since she already knows her fate, she feels it's fine for her to call Skaia out.
* WeHaveReserves: Given that they literally produce copies of every 'pawn' living in Prospit save for the King, the Princesses' dream selves, and herself, she has this attitude towards her subjects.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Prospit is in an AllOrNothing war for existence with Derse, and she's already aware that [[spoiler:she won't live to see the end of it]]. Therefore, she wants to give her subjects the best possible Princesses she can offer.

A SentientCosmicForce which grants the dreamers of Prospit visions of the future. Takes the form of a white-haired, sky blue pegasus, and seems completely taken with Equestrian culture... perhaps a little ''too'' much so.
* BerserkButton: She ''really'' hates being called a child.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
* DreamingOfThingsToCome
* [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Hippomorphic Personification]]
* InvokedTrope: Really seems to enjoy doing this as part of her world-building.

* [[MulticoloredHair Multicolored Mane]]: Her mane's mostly white and curled like clouds, with a few parts which fade into blue, most promiently a small forelock.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: She may be cute and a little ditzy, but you ''really'' don't wanna tick her off.

[[folder: Important Figures in History and Myth]]
!!Love Lock
An earth pony known for challenging the Batterqueen, leading to the founding of Sugarcube Corner. Had a very distinctively styled mane, including a heart-shaped lock at the front of her bangs.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Her mane isn't the Playdough-ish one that her original MAD version had, but it is weirdly chunky. Her permanently shrunken pupils might be a reference to [[http://angryrabbit.tumblr.com/post/11328096196/mad-alien-6 this]].
* NotSoDifferent: Both she and the Batterqueen had immense amounts of {{Pride}}; however, Love Lock was confident about what she could achieve [[ThePowerOfFriendship with her friends]], while the Batterqueen only cared about her own skills.

!!The Batterqueen
A queen from another land who once attempted to take over Canterlot.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
* [[MulticoloredHair Multicolored Mane]]: Purple and pink, with the former fading into the latter.
