     My Little Pony Human Characters 

Megan Williams

Voiced by: Bettina Bush

The primary human protagonist, having been in the role in both of the My Little Pony TV Specials and My Little Pony: The Movie before making the trip to the show. Megan is a farm girl who was accidentally recruited by an overeager Pegasus named Firefly to fight the monstrous Tirek, and regularly returns to Pony Land to help her equine friends.

  • Action Girl: Her literal first action in Ponyland is attempting to hammerfist a dragon.
  • Adaptational Badass: Her toy version is just a cute little girl in a dress, but cartoon Megan is older and gets into action.
  • Badass Normal: She fights a dragon off, empty handed, in her initial appearance, and assertively negotiates with a troll while he's trying to drop her off a cliff.
  • Combat Pragmatist: She kind of has to be, given her opposition and Badass Normal status. Tricking a giant crab into losing his balance, blinding the nigh-omnipotent Lavan for a few precious seconds by dropping a drape on his head...
  • Deadpan Snarker: Briefly, though you'd probably snark too if a pink pegasus picked you out of the blue and treated you like The Chosen One just because you said you could ride horses.
  • Every Girl Is Cuter with Hair Decs: Has a huge pink hair ribbon.
  • Farm Boy: She lives at a ranch.
  • Girliness Upgrade: Sort of. Compared to the pilot she's more feminine and motherly, also the leader of the group. Her appearance is the major change, as it changed from reasonable clothes and colors, to frilly clothes and bright colors.
  • Guile Hero: Is quite willing to trick and play dirty against the world threatening calamities she frequently helps fight.
  • The Hero
  • Ideal Hero
  • Nerves of Steel: Despite all the crazy situations she ends up in, she always keeps a level head. One moment that stands out is when Queen Bumble's army has her at stinger point and she doesn't so much as bat an eye.
  • Plucky Girl
  • Rapunzel Hair: She has hair nearly past her waist.
  • Team Mom: Maybe it's just because she's the only one around most of the time who has thumbs...
  • Token Human
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy to Molly's Moe girly girl
  • Tomboyish Ponytail
  • True Blue Femininity: Her overalls are blue.

Molly Williams

Voiced by: Keri Houlihan

Megan's little sister and the youngest of the farmkids. Due to their similar age, she gets on best with the Baby Ponies (and, to a lesser extent, the more childish adult ponies).

Danny Williams

Voiced by: Scott Menville

Megan's brother, the middle child of the family.

     My Little Pony Ponies 

Magic Star, Earth Pony

Voiced by: Jeannie Elias (series) and Ellen Gerstell (movie)

First appearing in the movie, Magic Star is the unquestioned leader of the Dream Valley ponies.

  • The Ace: There are Loads and Loads of Characters, but there's very little question as to who their de-facto leader is.
  • Badass Normal: And this is why.
  • Only Sane Pony: Yes. Right alongside Galaxy and Wind Whistler, she gets the long suffering position of being one of the more sensible ponies who has to keep the others in line and keep them from getting themselves killed.
  • Team Mom: When Megan isn't around.

Fizzy, Twinkle-Eye Unicorn

Voiced by: Katie Leigh

A cheerful Unicorn who has the power to spurt bubbles of varying sizes and density out of her horn.

Wind Whistler, Pegasus

Voiced by: Sarah Partridge

The smartest and most logic-driven of the ponies, her intelligence is useful, but she has problems with alienating her more emotion-driven friends.

  • Ascended Extra: In the toylike, she was just another pegasus equivalent in personality to North Star, Lofty, etc., while the TV show gave her leading roles in numerous episodes (and the Big Damn Movie) and developed her into the show’s deepest and most complex character.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Depending on the Writer: The most notable instance among the reoccurring ponies. In the toys and British comics, she's The Ditz while in the animated series playing The Spock to Fizzy's ditz.
  • Not So Stoic: Seen in "Crunch the Rockdog", where she's implied to feel some bitterness about having a harder time fitting in with the rest of her friends.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Speaks this way to convey her intelligence.
  • The Smart Guy: Definitely the smartest pony around.
  • The Spock: Values rational thought and logical action over impulsiveness and emotion. Since the rest of the herd is more passionate by nature, they don't agree with her too much.
  • Team Mom: When Megan isn't available, she shares this role with Magic Star, though she's not as good at it due to the personality clash.

Ribbon, Unicorn

Voiced by: Katie Leigh

A maternal and caring pony who takes it upon herself to look after the various Baby Ponies.

Shady, Earth Pony

Voiced by: Jill Wayne

Heart Throb, Pegasus

Voiced by: Katie Leigh

An unabashed romantic who dreams of finding herself a "Prince Charming" to be with some day.

Surprise, Pegasus

Voiced by: BJ Ward

A fun-loving, mischievous pegasus who is constantly running/flying around all over the place. She enjoys making others laugh, playing games, and especially likes playing tricks or otherwise surprising people.

Gusty, Unicorn

Voiced by: Nancy Cartwright

Buttons, Unicorn

Voiced by: Susan Blu (series) and Sheryl Bernstein (movie)

Galaxy, Twinkle-Eye Unicorn

Voiced by: Sherry Lynn

  • Curtains Match the Window
  • The Empath: She's practically Counselor Troi in the form of a magenta, glowing unicorn.
  • Multicoloured Hair
  • Only Sane Man: Oh yeah. Just about every time bad happens, she's often put into groupings where she's the only one to keep her cool.
  • The Smart Guy: Not quite on par with Wind Whistler, but she can serve the same purpose in a pinch.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Her lot in life, often being in episodes lacking Magic Star and Wind Whistler.
  • Teleportation: She could teleport short distances, usually within her line of sight. She referred to it as "winking".

Gingerbread, Twinkle-Eye Earth Pony

An exuberant Earth Pony whose favorite food is gingerbread.

Paradise, Pegasus

Voiced by: Susan Blu

A book-loving Pegasus who particularly enjoys telling stories to the other ponies, adults and babies alike.

  • Badass Bookworm
  • The Ditz: While nowhere near as obvious about it as Fizzy is, she could give her a run for her money any day of the week.
  • The Storyteller
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: While in a land of unicorns, dragons, elves, dwarves, and such, she wishes life were a little more like storybooks. Um...

Posey, Earth Pony

Voiced by: Nancy Cartwright

A shy and retiring pony who loves to garden.

Lickety-Split, Earth Pony

Voiced by: Katie Leigh

The Flutter Ponies

Voiced by: Nancy Cartwright (Honeysuckle and Forget-Me-Not) and Russi Taylor (Rosedust, Morning Glory and Peach Blossom)

A group of small, butterfly-winged fairy-ponies who wield powerful magic of their own. Though seperate to the pony society and living in their own hidden village, they are often sought out for help against powerful hostile magic.

The Baby Sea Ponies

Voiced by: Nancy Cartwright (Ripple, Sealight), Katie Leigh (Sea Shimmer, Sun Shower), Russi Taylor (Surf Rider) and Sherry Lynn (Water Lily)

A group of infant sea ponies who have been left under the care of the ponies of Dream Valley.

  • Scatting: Shoo-bee-doo, shoo-shoo-bee-doo, shoo-bee-doo, shoo-shoo-bee-doo!
  • Stout Strength: They're small and kind of pudgy, but they're a lot stronger than you'd expect.

    My Little Pony Villains 
Hydia voiced by: Tress MacNeille (series) and Cloris Leachman (movie)
Reeka voiced by: Jennifer Darling (series) and Rhea Perlman (movie)
Draggle voiced by: Jennifer Darling (series) and Madeline Kahn (movie)

The Witches of the Volcano of Gloom

Three Evil Witches who dwells in a nearby volcano, the matriarch Hydia hates the ponies and wants to drive them from the valley, but to her exasperation the only help she has are her less-than-competent daughters, Reeka and Draggle. First appearing in The Movie, they attempt to drown the valley in a grotesque Blob Monster called the Smooze, and afterwards continue to bedevil the ponies.

Queen Bumble

Voiced by: Unknown

A bloated, arrogant, narcissistic bee queen whose greed leads her to conquer the homeland of the Flutter Ponies in the first story arc, with the aid of the Witches of the Volcano of Gloom.

Princess Porcina

Voiced by: Tress MacNeille

A vain and somewhat scatterbrained porcine sorceress who inadvertently threatens Dream Valley when she uses her magic mirror to begin transforming everything into glass so that she can have more mirrored surfaces to admire herself in. Repents when she realises she's actually hurting people and changes everything back.

The Raptorians

Voiced by: Cam Clarke, Charlie Adler and Townsend Coleman

Porcina's birdlike lackeys, the Raptorians prove to be much smarter than their boss, with much more dangerous schemes.

  • Co-Dragons: All three of them serve under Porcina as equals.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: They do all the heavy lifting and plan to overthrow Porcina, ruling Ponyland themselves.
  • The Starscream: When Porcina refuses to turn the ponies to glass, they betray her and steal her cloak to use themselves.

The Flories

A band of malevolent plant entities who escape from their subterranean prison during the episode "The Fugitive Flowers". In their dormant state, they look like cute, pretty flowers, but they can suck the life out of the ground, killing everything else planted there to grow into hulking monsters. They manipulate Posey and the other ponies into protecting them against their captors, the Crabnasties, and then devour Posey's garden to go on a rampage. Finally, they get imprisoned again.

Grogar

Voiced by: Michael Bell

An Evil Sorcerer ram who rules as an unmitigated tyrant over the Brigadoon city of Tambelon.

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: His minions are actually pretty competent, and the ponies are completely helpless against his power for most of the serial.
  • Breakout Villain: Next to Tirek, Grogar is one of the most popular and well-known G1 villains out there. Many fans put him in G4 fan works, though unlike Tirek he's yet to make an actual appearance.
  • Control Freak: Implied. He controls his minions so closely that he makes not taking part in his victory celebration punishable by being banished to another dimension.
  • Dimension Lord: Of the Realm of Darkness.
  • Evil Overlord: Of Tambelon.
  • Hero Killer: Grogar spends most of his serial dishing out Curbstomp Battles to everyone.
  • Oh, Crap!: When he hears the bell that is his Kryptonite Factor being rung.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was imprisoned in the Realm of Darkness along with Tambelon five hundred years ago before he manages to return. He's sent back into his prison at the end.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When the heroes escape at the end, he goes berserk and starts firing lightning at the heroes with intent to kill instead of his capture beams.

Knight-Shade

Voiced by: Unknown

Zeb & Arabus

Voiced by: Unknown (Arabus) & Roger C. Carmel (Zeb)

  • Shadow Theft
  • Elemental Embodiment: Arabus is the elemental embodiment of smoke and shadows.
  • Large Ham: Both of them. Especially in their Villain Song.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Implied with Zeb. In addition to his alliance with Arabus, he also walks like a human, a Primal Fear for zebras.
  • Phlebotinum Dependence: Arabus is powered up by feeding on shadows, but his power is finite. He needs to constantly feed on shadows or he grows weak.
  • Victory by Endurance: The ponies escape their first confrontation with him by exploiting this trope. Arabus is very powerful, but burns through his energy quickly and needs shadows to maintain it.

King Charlatan

A penguin who has the magical ability to launch freezing Eye Beams. Disdaining any being who cannot survive the cold like his penguins can, he attempts to freeze the entire valley to drive away or exterminate anyone who cannot withstand the Endless Winter, granting his people superiority over all.

Crunch the Rock Dog

A monstrous canine earth elemental that despises anything "soft", he goes on a rampage seeking to petrify the entirety of Dream Valley.

  • Guardian Entity: The Mountain King created him to be this for his Heart Stone. Unfortunately, he forgot to give him a heart, resulting in him being a cold rampaging beast.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He ultimately turns good. Justified, as he literally didn't have a heart until the heroes got a piece of the Mountain King's heart to give him one.
  • Lack of Empathy: Was created without a heart, and thus has no sense of compassion or empathy. He gets better when given a piece of the Heart Stone to complete him.
  • Rock Monster: Is a giant dog made out of rock.
  • Taken for Granite: Everything and everyone he touches turns to stone.
  • The Sociopath: Crunch is literally lacking a heart, and thus incapable of feeling empathy, compassion, or any other type of positive emotion. He gets better when he's completed with a piece of the Heart Stone.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: One by one the Dwindling Party is turned to stone before a giant dog-thing that seeks to destroy them just because it hates anything it considers 'soft,' which basically means 'not as evil as itself.'

Lavan the Magma Demon

Voiced by: Unknown (possibly Frank Welker)

  • Bad Boss: Treats his minions terribly, and relishes his power over them.
  • Big "NO!": Let's one out when he sees the Princess Ponies return his attack to sender.
  • Hand Blast: Can fire beams of heat from his hands. After his transformation, he trades up to powerful rainbow colored energy beams.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: The Princess Ponies use their recharged wands to reflect his own attack back at him, killing him.
  • Killed Off for Real: Was blown to bits.
  • Light Is Not Good: His crystal form is white colored and has rainbow colored magic, and all in all much nicer looking than his original form. He's one of the single most vile beings in the entire series.
  • Power Incontinence: It's stated that Lavan was still learning to control his stolen power, and still hadn't mastered it fully by the time he was defeated.
  • Oh, Crap!: His reaction when his own attack is reflected back at him.
  • One-Winged Angel: He transforms from a lava demon to a crystal being. The change in appearance is only a bonus, however, as what he really wanted was the gigantic boost in power it came with.
  • Villain Song: "Here's to Power".
