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 

    Lightning Dawn 

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

  • Butt Monkey: An entire chapter is dedicated to her getting constantly wet in the fight with a water monster.
  • Captain Obvious: Upon meeting Rhymey, a character who speaks entirely in rhyme, she remarks "Wow, he sure does love rhyming." Not long after, she wanders into a restaurant and remarks upon how hungry everybody is.
  • Demoted to Extra: She is acknowledged maybe once or twice in My Brave Pony: Star Fleet Magic III despite being the main character's best friend.
  • Deus ex Machina: The Uniforce.
  • Dumb Blonde: Most likely unintentional, but she certainly does come off as one.
  • Expy: Is named after the main character of Ferngully and appearance-wise is pretty much Fluttershy with her mane and coat color swapped, and in human form.
  • Fairy Companion: For Lightning. Named after a certain other animated fairy.
  • Flat Character
  • Identity Amnesia: Krysta isn't even her full name, just the partial fragment she remembers. She's Queen Krystalline of the world of Luminous.
  • The Load: She's more of a hindrance to the others than anything.
  • Magic Knight
  • Plagiarism: In a Youtube video introducing the characters her design was a recolor of a Deviant ART picture depicting Fluttershy as a human.
  • Super Strength: Word Of God said she can lift 3,000 times her own weight.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Decides to follow a strange orb of light with the voice of the bad guy, promising her to tell her where she comes from.
  • Two Girls to a Team
  • What the Hell, Hero?: When Twilight expresses qualms about killing Starfleet's enemies.
    Krysta: "Twilight, I like you, but… sometimes I think you really need to wake up and stop kidding yourself."

    Grand Ruler Celesto 

The initial main antagonist.

    Starla Shine 

"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."


    Buddy Rose 

     Cookie Dough 
"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

    Dyno and Mite 




     Dr. Penny Sisi Sillion 
Unicornicopia's doctor

    Mysterious, Dementia, and Rep-Stallion 

Titan's minions, and the main cause of the attacks on the heroes in the first story.


    Twilight Sparkle 



     Pinkie Pie 


     Rainbow Dash 

  • Magic Knight: As the Dragon Knight
  • Took a Level in Badass: Unlike the other MLP characters who are flanderized to one-note caricatures, Spike at the very least gets a transformation.


    Nightmare Moon 

  • Killed Off for Real
  • 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.

  • Remember the New Guy: He is Krysta's adopted son, who suddenly appears with no foreshadowing in My Brave Pony: Star Fleet Magic II, Episode 1. When asked about why he suddenly appears, Mykan answered "New characters get thrown in all the time (everyone knows that)".

    Queen Chrysalis 

     The Changeling Captain/Fratello 
  • Back Fromthe Dead: Fratello's ghost joins back with his replacement robot body
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul
  • Meaningful Name: His full name is Italian for My Dear Big Brother
  • Remember the New Guy: Turns out, the second main antagonist of My Brave Pony: Star Fleet Magic II is Cadance's brother Fratello, who we never heard of before.
  • Replacement Goldfish: After Fratello's death, Brain builds a replacement Fratello in My Brave Pony: Star Fleet Magic III
  • The Starscream: Turns out he is a cyborg only pretending to be a changeling, who wants to take over Equestria with his robot army.

  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Despite being a high-ranked Starfleet member and being only the 3rd character shown to be able to use the Uniforce, she is only mentioned once in passing later.

     Ace Ray 
  • 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 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: Star Fleet 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.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After essentially being brainwashed, he reacts this way to memories of his past actions.
  • Straw Loser
  • 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.


  • Flat Character: He is the most extreme example of a flat character. While other characters at least have a backstory and one character trait, he has no characterization at all.
  • Green Thumb
  • Prongs of Poseidon: The Doom Trident.


  • Anti-Villain: One of the few characters to go beyond 1 trait. Though affiliated with Sombra, she has higher morals than her allies.
  • High Heel-Face Turn
  • Love Makes You Evil: Turned to evil because her boyfriend Royce left her.
  • Sword Beam: The Blade Blaster.
  • Taken for Granite
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Happens in My Brave Pony: Star Fleet Magic III, Episode 11, where she is called away by Sombra when she is about to kill Royce and Pinkie Pie, though at least there's a reasonable explanation (She already got the Crystal Heart Sombra told her to get).



     King Sombra / Dusk Shine 
  • Big Bad: Of My Brave Pony: Star Fleet III.
  • The Bully: In the Starfleet continuity, Sombra was first seen as a bully named Dusk Shine.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: As Dusk Shine, he drugs Celesto's water during a tournament to determine who will guard Celestia. He gets caught, striped of his rank, and banished.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain

     The Dark King 

     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
