Remember: This is not a place for you to vent your personal feelings about one another or using it as a means of self promotion, it's about cataloging tropes and events that take place in fictional My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic set-up created by the booru community. Please only list and describe yourself if you happen to be part of the story. If not, kindly refrain from stroking your, or your friend's, ego. If you feel a need to trope yourself and share with others, do so on your userpage. This rule has not been set by anyone in specific, but by the TV Tropes mods: This is a place for describing fiction, not real life—other than that, it is also to prevent Edit Warring. If this rule is not followed then this subpage, and possibly its main article, will likely be removed.

Big Good: Is considered this for giving the Ponibooru members a new home.
Honor Before Reason: Saves ♠Molestia from Sixtyfour125, BronyHeresy Blue, CottonTales, and Godhead Inspector's Coup... in spite of the fact that, rationally speaking, it'd be better for everyone involved if Molly weren't in power.
Iron Woobie: She bears the brunt of a lot of pain, over and over again, and rarely even makes a fuss about it.
She also attacked the group after being turned into a changeling by Molestia-Chrysalis
Berserk Button: Say that [[Magitek Magitech]] is better than Nuclear Power, also menace her friends and family, and you will be in a world of pain.
Body Horror: She suffers a nasty bout of it in her transformation into an Energy thief.
Clones Are People Too: She's been greatly affected by what happened to the other Pinkies and is frightened at the thought of going back into the Mirror Pool. Nowadays, she's a very rich inventing mare living with 2 other clones she saved.
She's even able to use the Element of Laughter.
Cloning Blues: As much as she tried to hide, and unlike her sisters, she never got over the fact she's a clone, and this constantly haunts her mind.
Aloof Big Sister: Noit as much, but compared to her "sisters", she's definetly that. Ironic, since techinically, she's the younger one.
Darkand Troubled Past: She witnessed her sisters Go puff, and ran away, where she was later ponynapped by a gang of Manhattan and forced to work, almost got raped by them and killed them in self defense. Later, she got ponynapped by the UAA and forced to work with them.
Impossible Genius: Confetti is capable of building many things, however she focused manly on parties. Her clone found building stuff more appealing; Pinkie beingPinkie, her inventions may be absurd and made of everything imaginable.
The Cape: In her universe, she's seen as an absolute paragon of virtue and always puts her subjects' well-being at heart. And with her immense magical power, she's going to take action when they're threatened.
Hero with an F in Good: Just like Canon!Luna, Luna really wanted to be liked and redeem her image in the eyes of the common-folk, but she came off as incredibly intimidating without even trying. One thousand years of scary stories about her being a Chaotic Evil harbinger of doom, and then of being a cannibal predator that must be fooled with disguises and placated with tribute, most likely did not help things. She's gotten much better.
Magic Knight: Seeing as he's Captain of the Royal Guard and a unicorn. Usually earth ponies tend to be strong but magically inept while unicorns tend towards squishy wizardry, but Shining Armor is strong both physically and magically.
And I Must Scream: She was bound to the cemetery for several hundred years, without a chance to see her sister, unable to leave because she could never say goodbye, and later because heaven and hell closed off to her kind
Unfinished Business: Before, she wouldn't go to afterlife because she never said goodbye to Rarity. Now that she can't go to vamponies afterlife, and she refuses to go on a strange afterlife, she will only go when everypony else dies too.
Summon Magic: When in-character, he unleashes the power of... everything he pleases!
It's Popular, Now It Sucks: In regards to most adventures in the comments (or even Meta Threads, for him anything written in italic is an adventure in the comments)
Almighty Janitor: In character. He's the janitor of the boarding house which represents the board, in-universe. While he doesn't have a lot of weight to throw around, he frequently fights/arbitrates in daemonic struggles.
Iron Woobie: Established through personal messages. His cutie mark is a light bulb, representing his innovation talents. He ends up becoming a street criminal, turned Priest, turned Janitor, turned daemon fighter; all this through a streak of incredibly bad luck, lasting most of his young life. Will mention it if asked, but he'll never complain.
Literal Split Personality: Split into BronyHeresy One ("Red" for short) and BronyHeresy Two ("Blue" for short) by an overheating Quantum Entanglement Ray. Ironically, Red is a lot more calm, compared to Blue who is far more aggressive.
No Sell: Completely immune to Chloroform, having taken immunity against it at third level.
Break the Badass: He's not too troubled by gods of chaos, hordes of heartless, demons or a changelingfied Molestia, but when he remembered whatever happened at Puerto Crines and the possibility the chief of chemistry might come along, he was so terrified he could only run away. Similarly, he's terrified of his boss in the same way, and Hacky comments on this.
Crippling Overspecialization: Usually having platforms with rockets ready to launch at all times would help with most enemies. Unfortunately, they don't get brought along across dimensions, nor are they good with friendly fire.
Well, I-I dunno, it's just, well, I don't know. From the very start, with the wings flying open when the owner's aroused, and then caressing them, stroking along the edge where the feathers grow, from the base to the very tips, and then getting wrapped in them as you- Ah, crud
Gadgeteer Genius: Using scrap found in a junkyard, he managed to create a rocket fit for carrying several ponies.
Improvised Weapon: He's forgotten several times to bring weapons, and has had to make do with bricks, corpses, a chicken and his blowtorch. He claims to have been trained by dwarves, so it isn't that surprising.
Leeroy Jenkins: Charging at Discord, or at a Heartless army, with nothing but a blowtorch usually isn't a good idea.
Made of Iron: He's said he blows himself up by accident regularly, and he's survived a fall from Cloudsdale, a falling fridge, deflected bullets and being set on fire by a flare without much damage. A baseball bat to the head didn't even wake him up.
"Pulling week-old shrapnel out of my legs is something I have to do every morning"
Trigger Happy: Tends to reach for the launch buttons a little too quickly.
Unskilled, but Strong: He doesn't seem to know any fighting techniques of any sort, resorting to improvised weaponry and his bare hooves, but this has usually proved to be enough, what with him having a right hook that knocked a changelingfied and enraged GodheadInspector into a wall so hard it dented.
Platonic Life Partners: With Confetti. Which is funny since he romances Hacky, which looks almost completely like her.
Friendly Enemies: He's a Necromancer. BronyHeresy is a Priest. They frequently hang out and fight demons together. She's also married to Pinkie Clone, a mare that often fight against his plans, however, they're happily married.
Derpy Hooves calls him a Marty Stu because of that.
"Butthole is a funny word"
Those Two Guys: Once he and Yorec start talking about video games, the thread is pretty handily derailed.
Absent-Minded Professor: He is normally very eloquent and has a wide vocabulary, but his memory is atrocious, often repeating things to his fellow commentators and using phrases like "I might have already told you this..."
Hypocrisy Nod: He once stated that he thought it was narcissistic to apply tropes to himself, while he actually added all three of them, including this one. Hi everyone!
Knight Templar: Germany is always right except when it's wrong. (Like many Kaiserites from pre-Nazi times blames the democratization/Americanization of Germany post-world-war as responsible for many of its modern-day problems. Essentially a complete clone of his Grandfather's and previous generations' philosophies, and proud of it.) This is a moderately large thing in Germany, as a common phrase invoked about far-right German parties is that they are 'the parties of grandparents and rebellious youth.'
Ruthless Modern Pirates: Due to the ban on certain kinds of political opinions and media in his homeland(s), he lives in the US, but financially supports any and all means of returning northern Europe "to more sensible times."
Surprisingly Good English: It's his fourth language (but sometimes flounders when in a rage, and can't translate to it in his head properly or begins using the wrong, but similar, words) Note that due to being a KT, means this is actually him correlating things and getting all fired up with RIGHTEOUSHOTBLOODEDFURY.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Is this way about Animal Rights and Environmentalism. Follows Wilhelm Heinrich Riehl religiously but is against base Utilitarianism, as well as the majority of currently existing 'Green' movements for planting themselves firmly in Knight Templar territory and causing more (environmental) harm than good. According to him, was once part of Sierra Club but fell out with them over other members expressing support for the likes of ALF, SHAC, and PeTA. So, economically/politically a KT, ecologically/sociologically a WIE.
Magitek: His field of work, to make up for his rather low magic ability for a unicorn.
Adorable Evil Minions: Has one now, even though the Prof. isn't evil he has an "evil" minion in the form of a Prinny named Fuse(who doesn't like to be called a penguin), just don't ask how he became his minion.
The reformed apocalypse pony of death
Black Widow: Openly so, as she seems to enjoy bringing her lovers to an inch of death, and maybe a little beyond
Heel-Face Turn: A slight bit questionable, as she retains some of her murderous behaviors.
Manipulative Bastard: When her plans to have Autumn Leaf and Ambrosia Sage hand their souls over started going awry with several ponies intervening, she convinced Ambrosia to assault them all, while she herself sat back and enjoyed.
Out-of-Character Moment: During the climax of the Pinkie Apocalypse he thought of positive things, smiled, and became a Hot-Blooded person. It was justifed since The Elements needed positive energy in order to work.
Set Right What Once Went Wrong : She's the future clone of the child of Stirred Brew and Giggles. Sadly, has no idea what to fix, or how to get back. More sad since Confetti wiped out her memory of that, as to keep time-line.
The Pollyanna: She doesn't seem to be too bothered by being trapped in the past.
Catch Phrase: "Vector Sigma." The name of the divine super computer from the Transformers franchise said the be the means which Primus created the first Cybertronians and all Cybertronian life since, used quite often as a swear word similar to the context the name Jesus Christ is used.
The Corrupter: Has openly tried to convince byakhee_pony to try and side with him, and is in the progress of turningAmbrosia Sageevil. Has also approached Rhydol/Keet in an attempt to convince him to do the same.
Expy: Of Doctor Who's the Master, and Sherlock's Jim Moriarty, with teeny tiny sprinklings of the Order of the Stick's Xykon. His plan also bears a resemblance to SEELE's from Neon Genesis Evangelion
For the Evulz/It Amused Me:His life is defined by the unbearable, relentless boredom. He spends his days looking for something to challenge him, and trying to think of a good reason not to commit suicide. Partially subverted in that this he's not hedonistic - in fact, his plot is to merge all of ponykind in perfect harmony - but his reasons are the same regardless.
Body Horror: His body constantly morphs between the three basic pony species without ever achieving the complete form. Horn and wings grow, only to melt into bloody goo that is absorbed back into the body in an endless cycle of transformation.
Brown Note: When Blueblood scanned a tooth caused by his unusual weather, he fainted.
Chaotic Evil: In spite of being one of the nicer villains encountered so far, and actually posing no danger to the heroes, he still has no qualms about instantly killing Chris Hansen in the most gruesome way possible, and follows absolutely no rules except his own.
Disproportionate Reward: For managing to sneak into his lair, get past all of the traps and sentries in his lair, and manage to attract super-persistent predators, he proceeds to give the heroes a number of extremely valuable treasures.
