Characters: Pony POV Series-G 3 Universe

Unmarked spoilers here! You've been warned!


Voiced by: Faux Snyder
Voiced by: TBA in the 7 Dreams/Nightmares Gaiden Audio Adaptation.
  • The Ageless: Like all G3 characters.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Happens just before her death.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: In a similar fashion to Pinkie Pie, it's why they're best friends.
  • Composite Character: She's comprised of three ponies: Clover, her husband Dandy, and their son Lucky Bloom.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Dies smiling because she managed to help save Pinkie and they got to sing together one last time.
  • The Klutz
  • Mortal Wound Reveal: Was mortally wounded in the fall she and Pinkie Pie took down a canyon wall before their fight with Luna. After Luna has a change of heart and chooses to spare her, she dies from it.
  • Posthumous Character
  • Really 700 Years Old
  • Reincarnation: Possibly Twilight is hers, the story has yet to explain if Twilight is truly her reincarnation or simply the being resulting in a Fusion Dance between her spirit and G1 Twilight's shadow. Either way, she lives on in Twilight somehow.
    • It's later revealed that Twilight is the reincarnation of Minty's Light while her Shadow will eventually reincarnate as a separate pony. In the Dark World, this takes the form of Minty Pie, the descendant of one of Octavia's descendants and Applebloom.
  • Retgone: Was marked for this, but ultimately was saved by Pinkie.
  • Super OCD

  • The Ageless: Like all G3 characters.
  • The Chosen One: She was one of those chosen to survive into the new timeline, but she rejected this in favor of saving her friend.
  • Dance Battler: How Pinkie believes she delayed Anarchy. In reality, it was far more brutal, desperate and improvised.
  • Deader than Dead: Irretrievably gone. As stated by the one who accidentally Ret Gone'd her, he really can't undo it.
  • The Determinator: Her injuries got worse and worse in the process of defending Pinky, but she never, ever gave it up.
  • Famous Last Words: Subverted, her voice was one of the first things erased. So far as Pinky could tell, it was supposed to be a farewell song.
  • Final Death: It is indeed very final, and its ramifications include the effects of this trope, but it's not death... See the Ret Gone entry below.
  • Fusion Dance: Formed from the Dazzlings from Rainbow Rocks, who had two more members at the time.
  • Heroic Resolve: Anarchy's expressed intent to erase Pinky set her into Determinator mode.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sacrificed every trace of her existence in all timelines, implicitly annihilating her own mind and soul, just to buy her condemned friend a few moments.
  • Heroic Safe Mode: In contrast to Pinky's Heroic BSOD, Starsong immediately vowed to defend everyone, no matter the cost, after seeing Anarchy erase Toola-Roola.
  • The Paragon: Ends up serving as one to Pinkie, inspiring her to rescue Minty.
  • Really 700 Years Old
  • Ret Gone: This is her fate, to have never existed, and unlike those who were meant to be erased, to never be able to exist again in any way, shape, or form. To this, no character, other than resident fourth-wall-breaker Pinkie, has ever said her name, if they even can say those words. Even in the timeline where her world was not Ret Gone'd, she is still missing... The only reason why this trope entry exists is because Pinkie holds on to a blurred memory/dream of her.
    • Although in a recent chapter one version of Nightmare Granfallon managed to bring her back by dragging her Shadow out of nothingness and splitting her own soul to give her Light. Although he has declared it non-canon, it was still written by Alex... This gives hope to some that she is not gone forever.
  • Screw Destiny: This is where Pinkie got it from, the one who defied her own destiny to save others from it.
  • Spanner in the Works: Her sacrifice was the only permanent deviation in the joint Alicorn-Draconequus creation of G4 Equestria, which otherwise wouldn't have included Pinkie or Minty (now Twilight).
  • Taking the Bullet: Just as Anarchy was about to make contact with Pinky to Ret Gone her, she dived at him to take the blow instead.
  • What You Are in the Dark: Despite knowing that no one would ever know who she was nor the sacrifice she would have to make, she still chose to save Pinky Pie without hesitation.

Rainbow Dash (G3)

  • The Ageless: Like all G3 characters.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Dive bombing Discord before he could start 'playing' with the Breezies again.
  • Catchphrase: "Magnificent".
    • Also "dashing" and "darling", as in canon.
  • The Fashionista: Loves making new designs (which is apparently what made her unique enough to not be on the 'delete' list). It's hinted that somehow a part of her also ended up inside Rarity and is the part of why she's this trope.
  • Fighting from the Inside: After merging with the Shadow of G1 Firefly (basically Firefly's Shadow Archetype), she fights back and forces her personality traits to reappear when the merge completes.
  • Fusion Dance: Ends up merging with G1 Firefly to become G4 Rainbow Dash.
  • Generation Xerox: Inverted, as Rarity is basically one of her personality wise (and may have part of her).
  • Ignorant of Their Own Ignorance: Anything she didn't know about Rainbows, she passed off as 'things ponies were not meant to know. She was naturally shocked and humbled to find out Unicorns made them. However, to her credit, she did start learning as much as she could about them.
  • Really 700 Years Old
  • Undying Loyalty: Is the source of the present Rainbow Dash's due to her desire to protect her friends during the apocalypse.


  • Adaptational Badass
  • The Ageless: Like all G3 characters.
  • Badass Bookworm: Keeps recording G3's history, even as the timeline unravels around her. Takes it Up to Eleven when she fights Twilight: Razzaroo uses her books as the medium for her 'Memory Magic'.
  • Bonus Boss: For the Dark World Timeline.
  • The Chosen One: Was being groomed for the position of The Magician before Twilight overtook her.
  • Last of Her Kind: Is the last original G3 pony (even Pinkie Pie was reformatted for G3.5) after the others were either returned to the source or altered for the G4 timeline.
  • No Sell: When Twilight tries the Failsafe spell on her, after using it successfully against Nightmare Eclipse multiple times during their battle, it doesn't work.
  • Physical Goddess: Has just about reached this point when Twilight fights her.
  • Posthumous Character: Sort of.
  • Power Copying: Her 'Memory Magic' lets her do this.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Like all G3 ponies. Even more so by the time Twilight comes across her.
  • Took a Level in Badass

Abra-Ca-Dabra/Trixie Lulamoon Mid-summernight

  • The Ageless: Like all the G3 characters.
  • Halloween: She was passionately focused on the holiday, to the point where she decorated her house to look like a Haunted House and had no real interests beyond it.
  • Composite Character: She was merged with G1's Magic Star to become the Great and Powerful Trixie.
  • Foreshadowing: Her favorite Halloween costume is to dress up like a witch like Trixie. She even describes herself as a great and powerful witch pony. She also love storytelling.
  • Flat Character: In Destruction's opinion anyway:
    "You're a one-note pony, a holiday pony. You're kept in a box three hundred and sixty-four days out of the year. You can't fit into the new world. You're a gimmick best left forgotten. To sum up: We can't let a cliche holiday themed character like you in, that would be just embarrassing!"
  • Fusion Dance: Ends up fusing with G1's Magic Star, an Earth pony, to become Trixie.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Abra gives up her own existence to fuse with Magic Star and save Twilight Sparkle from being destroyed before her birth by Destruction.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Again, like everyone else in G3.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Well, by the standards of the G3 world, anyway.
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: Her favorite Halloween costume. It makes sense given that she eventually becomes Trixie.
