Characters / My Little Unicorn

Just like the show this fanfic is loosely based on, My Little Unicorn has Loads and Loads of Characters. Among these are...

    open/close all folders 

Space Ponies

    Space Ponies in General 
  • Always Lawful Good: The Space Ponies are always good and right; everyone else is either evil or wrong.
  • Flat Characters: "[Character] is/does [their one personality trait]. That's it."
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal: Everyone in Unicornicopia dresses up in ridiculous Power Rangers bodysuits.
  • Informed Ability:
    • They're stated to be superior in intelligence to Equestrians but no character figures out that a metallic creature giving off no life readings and shooting Eye Beams attacking a dam is just a robot until its innards are exposed. The author gives the excuse that they've somehow never encountered robots before yet have heard of them but that only shows how unimaginative Starfleet is; it would be like real people encountering a winged, fire-breathing reptile and not realizing it's a dragon.
    • In this blog, the author compares Equestria to Colonial America and Unicornicopia to the distant future. However, Space Ponies have little to no futuristic technology such as teleporters, healing rays and artificial planets and not even modern technology such as mobile phones, submarines, nukes and automobiles.
    • In spite of the Space Ponies' supposed superior strength and speed, said to be able to withstand a kick from Applejack and move faster than Rainbow Dash at her best while walking, they actually had trouble incapacitating Diamond Dogs, which Rarity, in FiM canon, was able to bend to her beck and call, and the other Mane 5 were easily able to handle. It's like the Ewoks thwarting the Empire by comparison. And the kicker? The Diamond Dogs aren't stated to have gotten stronger, not through training or anything. The only explanation for this (according to Word of God) is that "they had strong armor".
    • They're described as a warrior race, but when a monster shows up, the first thing most of the populace does is hide behind their force fields and let Lightning's band deal with it.
  • Magic Knight: Supposedly, they're very good at using physical and magical abilities in combat.
  • Master Race: The Space Ponies and their "god" known as Grand Ruler are seen as this. They have no problem calling others out on how inferior they are to Space Ponies because they live on the ground alone, particularly Equestrian ponies.
    Unnamed Space Pony: Space Ponies ARE stronger than you Equestrians, but we don’t treat you like slaves, and we don’t bluntly rub it in your faces.
  • Petting Zoo People: They're depicted as having humanoid bodies with pony heads stuck on top.
  • Scary Dogmatic Aliens: Downplayed but still present. They mostly fall into Type I (Alien Nazis) for their belief that they are superior and Type III (Alien Fundamentalists) for their devotion to the Grand Ruler.
  • Superior Species: They're referred to as being faster, stronger, and more intelligent than their Equestrian counterparts, and when the latter enlist in Starfleet, they're constantly reminded that they'll never be quite as good as the Space Ponies.
  • You Are Number 6: Everyone's got a serial number on their chest (cutie marks being another thing that the author either didn't like or understand. Or both).
    • According to this, it was a minor element from an episode of Today's Special that he implemented into the fic. Expect to see plenty of that below.
    Lightning Dawn
He lost his horn in an unfortunate smelting accident. That's why he can't do magic.
Click here  to see his Enticorn form

The Grand Ruler's student, who, unlike other Space Ponies, is unable to use magic.

  • Birthday Hater: Due to his fifth one being the day all other members of his race were killed by Serpentari.
  • Born Winner: He was born with a Golden Horn similar to the Grand Ruler and is from an extinct species known as the Enticorn.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: To compensate for his lack of magical ability, the Grand Ruler trains him intensively to be physically stronger and faster than the other characters. Somehow, he still finds himself tuckered out by carrying crates and baskets of vegetables.
  • Death by Origin Story: His parents.
  • Deus ex Machina: The Uniforce.
  • Expy: He is basically a male version of Twilight Sparkle, only without her personality and what makes her likeable.
  • Finishing Move: His only real contribution to most fights is to end it with the Uniforce/Rainbow Rod/Capture Blaster.
  • Flat Character: He's Celesto's protegé. That's it.
  • Informed Ability: He has been stated to be extremely strong yet he never makes a dent on any monsters. Against other ponies, his strength is more or less equal, even getting knocked down by a possessed Cheerilee at one point.
  • Karma Houdini: In Starfleet Humans, despite provoking Celestia into attacking him by insulting her and her dead horse then scalding her face, Lightning never suffers any punishment other than an extremely short-lived suspension.
  • Last of His Kind: Is an Enticorn, explaining his lack of magical ability inherent to Space Ponies.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Nearly always his first method of attack.
  • The Load: Despite his physical strength, most of the villains use magic and his inability to use magic is quite a liability in battle. Anytime he finishes a battle is with his Uniforce.
  • Shrink Ray: Lightning's "CAPTURE BLASTER" that he gets in season 2 works this way. And yet it still makes the target explode, for some reason...
  • Superpowered Evil Side: While his Enticorn powers make him nearly as strong as Celesto, he has a difficult time controlling himself
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In My Brave Pony: Starfleet Humans, he acts rude and callous towards Principal Celestia after she rightfully calls him out on running wild in the street, causing her to crash her car. Even her simply stating that he shouldn't have been able to drag her vehicle out of the bushes makes him snark at her. Lightning is like this for the rest of the story towards Celestia, even when what she says or does is reasonable.
  • Un-Sorcerer: Until he starts wielding the Uniforce. And discovers his Enticorn origins.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: If he gets anything done at all, it's going to be with the Uniforce or (earlier on) the Rainbow Rod.

    Grand Ruler Celesto

    Starla Shine
Even Rarity's fashion sense slips on occasion.

  • The Archer: Wields a bow.
  • Death by Origin Story: Her parents.
  • Expy: Of Rarity.
  • Flat Character: She loves Lightning and astronomy. That's it. The latter only comes up a couple of times.
  • Informed Ability: She knows about the stars, but she puts her knowledge to good use only once and she never does any scientific research.
  • Meaningful Name: She likes astronomy, and has a Stellar Name.
  • invoked Palette Swap: She is, according to recent videos, just a Rarity clone, but not as shallow as the original. He has tried to cover this up by... slightly darkening her coat, which he feels "ruins the design".
  • Plagiarism: She is just Rarity.
    • One of her attacks is named "Star Shower" and is a series of shooting stars that look like lightning bolts. It is, word for word, the attack of the same name used by Pegasusmon.
  • Satellite Love Interest: We never learn much about her other than her interest in astronomy, which is practically forgotten after her introduction. She doesn't even appear in the author's video of character bios for the fic!
  • Stellar Name: See Meaningful Name above.
  • Two Girls to a Team: With Krysta.

I know this might sound very crass, but I'm gonna shove this pony's rhymes up his nose.note 

"I fail to see why you mock
me for the way that I talk.
My entire family speaks in rhyme.
We have been doing so for a very long time."

  • Beta Couple: With Fluttershy to Lightning Dawn and Starla Shine.
  • Expy: Of Muffy Mouse. Yes. Really.
  • Family Theme Naming: As it turns out, his entire family has rhyming names. The Odd Name Out is, ironically, Rhymey himself.
  • Flat Character: He rhymes. That's all.
  • Informed Ability: It's been stated that he makes great poetry and is a master swordsman. The few works we see, however, are too simple and generic to be called "great" and his only sword move is a special attack.
  • Meaningful Name: He... rhymes a lot.
  • No, You: After Ace Ray complains about Rhymey's rhyming, Rhymey protests that his rhyming is perfectly natural, capping it off with this couplet.
    "There is nothing wrong with what I do.
    But I would say something is wrong with you."
  • Palette Swap: He's just Fluttershy with a horn, clothing, yellow tail, mane and a different hairstyle. In fact, the Mane Six confuse him for a disguised Fluttershy when he first appears to them.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: He rhymes absolutely everything, from ordinary conversations to attack names even to grunts of pain. Unfortunately, they're not good rhymes.

Gee, he's such a creative looking guy...

  • Art Attacker: Most of his attacks involve paint, and in the original, his primary weapon was a giant paintbrush.
  • Flat Character: His personality is that he makes art.
  • Informed Attribute: He's supposedly a great artist, but we haven't been told why his artwork is so great beyond "He made a statue".
  • Lonely Rich Kid: As revealed in Starfleet Magic IV, painting was Artie's way to express frustration over the fact that his rich parents ignored him.
  • Meaningful Name: Unlike the rest of the cast, this trope is averted in Artie's case. Starfleet Magic IV reveals that his real name is Arthur.
  • Simple Staff: His weapon of choice was changed to this in the rewrite.

    Buddy Rose
Is he perchance related to Artie up there?

    Cookie Dough
So much wasted potential...note 

"Feeling hungry, this guy doesn't make food, he makes a symphony of sensations that melt in your mouth and sooth your appetite."
— From his profile

  • Advertised Extra: He was played up as a core member of the team in the initial series, but he only gets a few major appearances, and out of those, he only gets to fight once. He later gets Put on a Bus, only reappearing once in Starfleet Magic III.
  • Demoted to Extra: He was a core member of the team in the initial series, was removed for several stories and when reintroduced in My Brave Pony: Starfleet Magic III, was a minor character. The Deviant ART remake brings him back, not as a member, but as a recurring background character.
  • Flat Character: He's a chef, and that's about it.

    Dyno and Myte
Mas y Menos tenían que conseguir sus cheques de sueldo, de alguna manera.translation 

Unsatisfactory, most unsatisfactory.

If he could make this whole thing just disappear, he would be the best character in the fic.

  • Expy: Of Waldo the Magnificent.
  • Flat Character: He's a magician. That's it.
  • Informed Attribute: It's hard to pin him as the great magician he's described as, given that everyone in Unicornicopia (barring Lightning Dawn) can use magic and Abra's magic is mainly of the stage variety.
  • Stage Magician: His schtick is that he does magic shows. As in, the sleight of hand variety.
  • Starving Artist: One chapter in the original story has Abra falling on hard times, due to Titan's minions crashing his shows and Abra not having the heart to ask for money in his street performances.

That's just wrong. Also, missing, if found, please do not return.

  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She seems to have disappeared completely after the first story. Explained in the Deviant ART version that she retired after the end of Season 1.
  • Conflict Ball: Grabs it in Episode 10, where she objects to the preparations for the party welcoming Grand Ruler's annual visit for no particular reasonnote  despite having participated in preparing something similar for the arrival of Lightning Dawn. It doesn't help that the conflict ultimately doesn't lead anywhere, since Titan and his minions proceed to crash the party and hijack the plot.
  • Expy: Of Dimitria from Power Rangers Turbo. Appearance-wise, she is to Mayor Mare what Starla is to Rarity.
  • Figure It Out Yourself: Her shtick. All she can do is talk in questions, which gets redundant when she starts talking like that even in regular conversation. This sounds familiar somehow...
  • Flat Character: She asks questions. That's it.
  • Shout-Out: Named after the species/homeworld of a Power Ranger mentor; see Expy above.
  • Verbal Tic: She talks entirely in questions.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: She doesn't play any role in the sequels. According to Word of God that`s because he had no idea how to use her anymore.

    Dr. Penny Sisi Sillion
How do we know you're even a real doctor?

Unicornicopia's doctor.
  • Expy: Of Nurse Redheart.
  • Flat Character: She's a doctor. That's it.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Downplayed. Normally, she's perfectly benign, but it takes a certain kind of doctor to prescribe Mind Rape as a cure for mental issues. Also falls into this for an episode of Season 2 due to changeling possession.
  • Punny Name: Her name is a pun on penicillin. Her middle name is a pun on "CC" (cubic centimeter, a frequently-used unit of measurement for medicines).
  • Super Doc: She's apparently a general practitioner that's also a psychologist and a surgeon, and is technically inclined enough to build a machine that can influence/read memories.

    Emerald Shaina


  • Expy: Of Jeff Hyslop from Today's Special, right down to the Kryptonite Factor and having to use a wish to save his friend instead of making himself become a real pony. The only real difference is that Goldwin is a statue brought to life by a magic mask, rather than a mannequin brought to life by a magic hat.
  • Flat Character: He wants to become a real pony and experience the outside world. That's it.
  • Living Statue: He's a statue unintentionally brought to life by Abra's magic.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Particularly in his debut season, where any episode with Goldwin centers around him even at the expense of having little to do with the rest of the plot.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Despite knowing full well that removing his mask causes him to become a lifeless statue, he often ends up doing it anyway. Fortunately, he's surrounded by ponies to revive him if that happens.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: He's kept alive by Abra's enchanted mask, so if the mask is removed, he becomes an inert statue. He's also, for less well-defined reasons, unable to leave the grounds of Canterlot Palace.

  • The Alcatraz: She serves as the warden for one of Starfleet's prison planets.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Falls victim to this at the hands of the changelings. Lightning Dawn and Twilight have to snap her out of it.
  • The Bus Came Back: Despite being a high-ranking Starfleet member and being only the 3rd character shown to be able to use the Uniforce, she is only mentioned once in passing after her one appearance in II. After a long absence, Cerise makes another appearance at the beginning of VI.
  • Deus ex Machina: Zigzagged. While she can use the Uniforce and did use it to save the day in her first appearance, she's generally the one that needs help.
  • Flat Character: She's a prison warden. That's it.
  • Identical Stranger: Described as being very similar to Cadence.
  • Series Continuity Error: First appears under the name Cerise Wonder, but her second appearance uses Cerise Magenta.
  • Wardens Are Evil: Downplayed; while she's not a villain, Cerise and her guards are shown being downright abusive to their prisoners.
  • The Worf Effect: Despite being acknowledged as a powerful Starfleet officer in charge of a Penal Colony and able to use the Uniforce to boot, both of Cerise's appearances so far have her needing to be bailed out of trouble by the main cast.


    Equestrians in General 


    Twilight Sparkle 
  • The Chew Toy: Probably even more so than Cadance; at least the latter is still alive.
  • Chickification: She is a fairly competent leader and mage in canon, but here she's stuck playing second fiddle to Lightning Dawn.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: She dies in Lightning's arms.
  • Killed Off for Real: In "season" three, courtesy of Raven.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: On occasion, including the one that gets her killed. Clearly she's been learning from Lightning.
  • Spirit Advisor: Twilight becomes one to Lightning after her death.


  • Flanderization: She's only defined by her love of fashion. She is portrayed as constantly forcing makeovers on those who don't want them, being rather more self-centered and materialistic, and whining quite a bit. As well, while Rarity in the source material could be a Drama Queen at times (and could she ever), here she tends to overreact to everything.
  • Flat Character: She loves making dresses and is melodramatic. That's it.
  • The Magic Touch: In one part of My Brave Pony: Starfleet Magic II, she essentially gets the Midas Touch. Anyone who's heard of King Midas should know where this is going.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass

    Pinkie Pie 


    Rainbow Dash 
  • Flanderization: While Rainbow Dash wasn't exactly the most well-read pony, here she's reduced to little more than Dumb Muscle.
  • Flat Character: She always rushes into conflict without thinking things through. That's it.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Even worse than Lightning in this regard.




    Ace Ray 
  • Brainwashed: To like Starfleet and feel sorry for attacking his sister in the original version. In the updated version, he's "merely" sent to an insane asylum instead.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Skye.
  • The Complainer Is Always Wrong: He falls into this, as well as Strawman Has a Point. He gets kicked off the Wonderbolts for complaining about Starfleet, and is portrayed as a loser who lounges around the house all day - even his own sister disagrees with him and has little sympathy. He ultimately ends up getting arrested after threatening to kill his sister in a fit of rage, and (in the original version) is brainwashed to like Starfleet. However, he comes off as more accurate than the author intended regarding Starfleet's flaws and failures.
  • Flanderization: In his first appearance, he does hate Starfleet, but has other priorities such as his sister. By the time of My Brave Pony: Starfleet Magic III, all he does is rant about his hatred of Starfleet and hates his sister.
  • I'll Kill You!: Says this to Skye after she declares him to be as bad as the evil they face, which results in him being officially declared a criminal, beaten and arrested.
  • Informed Attribute: Is stated to be insane in the rewritten version. It doesn't take a psychologist to see that that's not the case.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After essentially being brainwashed in the original version, he reacts this way to memories of his past actions.
  • Put on a Bus to Hell: In the rewritten version, he's last seen strapped down in an asylum.
  • Rage Within the Machine: One of the only Equestrian ponies who isn't completely wowed by Starfleet. Quite the opposite, really.
  • This Loser Is You: Is presented as an overweight ex-Wonderbolt who got kicked off for badmouthing Starfleet, and used as a strawman who makes complaints about them that exist to be completely shut down by the heroes. And as you can see above, more people agreed with Ace Ray than disagreed.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: What we're meant to think of him as.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Beats up his own sister while threatening to kill her.

    Brass Bolt 
  • The Cracker: He successfully breaks into the main computer system of one of Starfleet's prisons.
  • The Complainer Is Always Wrong: Whenever he tries to complain about Starfleet, everyone around him starts shooting him down.
  • Expy: Much like Dusk Shine and a few other antagonists, he's an expy of one of the many detractors that DARED to question Word of God. The detractor in this case is brassboy212, a lesser known member of the brony community, an up-and-coming Fan Fic writer and former Mykan supporter. After several chats between the two involving Brassboy calling out Starfleet on their borderline fascist ways, Mykan created this character in response. After reading about this new character, Brassboy stated comically in a skype chat among his friends "I don't know whether to feel honored, offended, or both." Considering the connection between the two, Brass Bolt's name might also qualify as a Meaningful Name.
  • Put on a Bus to Hell: He gets arrested by Starfleet and dragged off to an unknown fate.
  • Rage Within the Machine: Hates Starfleet with a passion. He could almost be the protagonist of a story in a Dystopia setting.
    "Some day, the truth is going to come out, and people will see you freaks for what you really are!"
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: For Ace Ray, of all people.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He only meant to release some of the prisoners to show Starfleet up. Instead, he ended up releasing all of them, setting many of their enemies loose.

Other Allies

If she's here, who will protect Ferngully?

  • Flat Character: The only time he shows any real character traits is for one chapter as a rebellious teen, which is promptly dropped afterwards.
  • Remember the New Guy: He is Krysta's adopted son, who suddenly appears with no foreshadowing in My Brave Pony: Starfleet Magic II, Episode 1. When asked about why he suddenly appears, Mykan answered "New characters get thrown in all the time (everyone knows that)".

    Human Mykan Stevens 
The protagonist of Human in United Equestria.
  • Sixth Ranger: Eventually joins up with Starfleet.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Similarly to Sonichu, Mykan has been stealing the spotlight out from under Lightning Dawn, but not (yet) to Demoted to Extra levels. Additionally, his Equestrian counterpart is being played up as a major recurring character in VI.
  • Teen Genius: Is an astronaut working under NASA... at 18 years old.

    Pony Mykan Stevens 
  • Arch-Enemy: Of Windy Bag, with their conflict driving the largest story arc in Starfleet Magic VI.
  • Author Avatar: As with his human counterpart, he's named for the author.
  • Flat Character: He is completely ungrateful and abrasive to people who want to help him. That's it.
  • Jerkass: He's... not very personable, to say the least.
  • Leave Me Alone!: He takes great measures to cut himself off from the rest of the world and refuses to tell anyone about his troubles, even resorting to eating out of garbage cans.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: So much. Even though Starfleet attempts to help him, he never responds favorably and tries his level best to get them off his back.

Starfleet Humans

    Celesto Grandruler 

    Human Starla Shine 
  • Badass Bookworm: She mainly studies astronomy, but she's also proficient in martial arts.
  • Flat Character: She loves Lightning Dawn and studies astronomy. The latter is only barely acknowledged.

    Human Rhymey 

    Human Artie 

    Human Buddy Rose 

    Human Dyno and Mite 

    Human Celestia 
  • Adaptational Jerkass: To the point where she bears almost no resemblance to her canon self; never has it been hinted that the canon Celestia was ever this disagreeable.
  • Flat Character: She loves Celesto Grandruler. That's it.
  • Freudian Excuse: Celestia's ill temper is a result of the death of her prized racehorse.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: In My Brave Pony: Starfleet Humans, Principal Celestia is stated to have become grouchy and tyrannical following the death of her pet horse, Bud, but the only times we see her miffed or angry are when she's justified in doing so, such as when she's told to allow Lightning Dawn to attend her school despite possessing no records of any kind.
  • Never a Self-Made Woman: She was given the job of teacher from Celesto.
  • Rage Breaking Point: When Lightning insults her dead horse, she snaps and physically attacks him.
  • Satellite Love Interest: To Celesto Grandruler.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In Starpops, she becomes much nicer compared to herself in the first Starfleet Humans.

    Human Luna 

    Sunset Shimmer 
  • Heel–Face Turn: Due to the first Equestria Girls film still taking place in this continuity, Sunset Shimmer still receives one of these. This also makes her one of the only characters to pull one off without dying or being Put on a Bus immediately afterwards.

    Human Twilight Sparkle 

    Human Applejack 

    Human Rarity 

    Human Pinkie Pie 

    Human Fluttershy 

    Human Rainbow Dash 

    Spike The Dog 
  • Evil-Detecting Dog: Not necessarily "evil", but he does become particularly on-edge around Lightning and Krysta (who is a robin in the human world), apparently picking up on them being more than meets the eye.


The initial main antagonist.

    Mysterious, Dementia, and Rep-Stallion 
Titan's minions, and the main cause of the attacks on the heroes in the first story.

  • An Ice Person: Some of Dementia's attacks invoke this.
  • The Brute: Rep-Stallion.
  • The Dark Chick: Dementia.
  • Flat Characters: Mysterious is evil and has bizarre abilites. Rep-Stallion is evil and stupid. Dementia is evil and obsessed with her appearance. That's it.
  • Informed Attribute: The narration would have readers believe they don't have hearts. Their ability to feel jealousy, rage and desire has readers believing otherwise.
  • Living Shadow: Mysterious.
  • Shock and Awe: Rep-Stallion's power.
  • Shout-Out: Most of their attack names come from the PS2 video game Orphen: Scion of Sorcery.
  • Sinister Scythe: Rep-Stallion's weapon.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Dementia is the only female member of Titan and his minions.
  • Super Smoke: Smoke of Pain, one of Mysterious's powers.
  • Terrible Trio: As Piccolo would tell you; pretty one (Dementia), stupid one (Rep-Stallion), one with weird powers (Mysterious).
  • Vain Sorceress: Dementia's obsession with her looks is her defining trait.
  • Vanity Is Feminine: Dementia, the token female member, is completely obsessed with her appearance.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Nightmare Moon.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Because he is a Living Shadow, Mysterious gets hurt by standing in any form of light.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Pony?: They are artificial beings and considered not worth rescuing by the heroes when the reality they fought in starts to collapse around them and they are too weak to escape.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: In one chapter, Rep-Stallion is ready to deliver the killing blow towards Lightning, when Titan calls him back for no reason at all. If he had just given him five more seconds, the hero would have been dead. Titan later explains that this is because he wants Lightning alive so he can take his powers. Not exactly the smartest plan when Lightning is the only one who is able to defeat him and he's conquered worlds without the Uniforce before. Come two episodes later, and Titan is destroyed.

    Nightmare Moon 

  • Flat Character: He's evil. That's it.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: He gets brainwashed into subservience by Titan.
  • Killed Off for Real: Celestia blasts him into the crumbling Unicornicopia, and he dies in the ensuing explosion.
  • Starfish Aliens: In the Starfleet continuity, the Draconequus are aliens.
  • Villain Decay: Reduced to a brainwashed monster henchman of Big Bad Titan near the end of the story and loses his reality warping abilities. To add insult to injury, he gets killed by Celestia.

    Queen Chrysalis

Remember the time Distraught tried to wipe out Starfleet in revenge over them killing Discord? Swell guy, that Distraught.




  • Blood Knight: Was born with no knowledge of his family or world, so his life became all about fighting and searching for a worthy opponent. His Blood Knight tendencies eventually led to him betraying Sombra.
  • Evil Counterpart: Set up as one for Lightning. Both are powerful beings who lost their family and world at a young age, but while Lightning was taken in by Grand Ruler and taught to use his powers to defend others, Harkin had no such luck and ended up as a nihilistic fighting machine.
  • Flat Character: He wants to fight strong opponents. That's it.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: His signature move, Red Rays. Also counts as a Hand Blast.
  • A Good Way to Die: To him, being bested by an Enticorn - namely, Lightning - counts as this.
  • Magic Knight: He has shades of this.
  • Megaton Punch: Harkin's Fists of Fury attack.
  • Villain Team-Up: In Episode 16 of My Brave Pony: Starfleet Magic III, he and Raven team up.
  • Worthy Opponent: Harkin sees Lightning as one.

The actual reason Twilight Sparkle died. The ball is in your court, Starfleet.

    King Sombra/Dusk Shine 

    The Dark King
Chernabog's career really went downhill after Bald Mountain.

    The Dark King's Minions 

Composed of Tnaig, Nomed, Ergo, Neila, and Esroh Dab

    The Cardinals 

Twelve Monsters based on the Eastern Zodiac. They are composed of Rat Racer, Big Bull, Flame-Stripes, Bouncer, Dragoon, Dark Scales, Silver Steed, Baa-Baa Black, Chompanzee, Buster Beak, Underdog, and Boar Bottoms

  • In-Name-Only: Tirek is portrayed as significantly different from how he was portrayed in "Twilight's Kingdom", since in Starfleet continuity, that episode never happened.

    The Phantom of Magic/Dr. Emil Kudos
Click here  to see Emil Kudos

  • The Dragon: To Tirek
  • Flat Character: He's evil because he got dumped. That's it.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Dr. Kudos became evil because a pony named Peach Berry rejected him for another pony with magical powers.
  • Phantom Zone: After Tirek turns good, Kudos uses his remaining magic to go to "someplace where things go to disappear", and presumably, will never be seen again.
  • Power Parasite: The Phantom's ability allows him to steal the Cutie Marks of other ponies, though unlike most Power Parasites, he does not gain the power he stole.
  • Remember the New Guy: Before he became the Phantom, Dr. Kudos was Shining Armor's marriage counselor.

    Princess Avyanna 

    Windy Bag 
  • Arch-Enemy: Of Mykan Stevens's pony counterpart. The grudge between them drives much of her subplot.
  • Arc Villain: The closest thing season 6 has to a Big Bad.

Starfleet Humans Villains

    Equestrian Flash Sentry 
  • Adaptation Species Change: Equestrian pony in the source material, a Crystallite in this.
  • Adaptational Villainy: The Equestria Girls films gave no indication of Flash Sentry being anything other than an ordinary human. In Starfleet Humans, he's the son of Empress Sapphira and serves as her Dragon.
  • The Dragon: In Starfleet Humans, he serves as this to Sapphira, his mother.
  • Flat Character: He's evil. That's it.
  • Human Aliens: He's a Crystallite.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: At the end of Starfleet Humans, he gets reformed by erasing all memories of his past life, suppressing his powers in the process. They resurface in Starpops when he hears about the death of Twilight Sparkle.
  • Redemption Equals Death: The climax of Starpops has him regaining his memories and Crystallite powers and choosing to fight alongside the heroes of his own accord. However, he gets fatally poisoned by Scales during the fight.


    The Dazzlings 
  • Adaptational Wimp: By far the worst case out of all the characters from FiM canon. Basically all of their notable moments were given to the Demonites instead; the Dazzlings spend most of Starpops severely weakened, playing second fiddle to them, and only being a minor nuisance at best. They're also defeated much more easily.
  • Flat Characters: They're evil. That's it.
  • Unwitting Pawn: The Demonites use them to gather energy for themselves, then throw them under a bus at the climax.

    The Demonites/D-Man Knights
