Characters: Pony POV Series - Pantheon

aka: Pony POV Series-Pantheon

Unmarked spoilers here! You've been warned!

Tropes which apply to the Alicorns

Tropes which apply to the Draconequi

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of chaos and Nature's Fury.
  • Barred from the Afterlife: Like the Alicorns, they can't enter Heaven. Though they can enter Hell, that's likely because they help their Father torment the condemned.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Being Nature's Fury, their morality is a bit different than mortals. According to Celestia, their form of compassion is based on memories as their Concepts mean most of them can't afford to have favorites when it comes to the mortal world (for example, Strife being Natural Selection can't afford to grow attached to one species and favor it when she's Survival of the Fittest).
  • Characterization Marches On: When the Draconequi were first depicted in Origins, they were essentially depicted as akin to Devils. Only barely kept in check by the Alicorns. With Havoc and Entropy in particular being portrayed as Gods Of Evil. Later depictions would emphasize their Dark Is Not Evil side and the more positive traits to their nature. Showing them to be a force of GOOD in the world. (albeit a very harsh one). This is Justified since their first depiction was from Celestia's (somewhat understandably) biased recount of past events.
  • Complete Immortality
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Their concepts are shown to have a good and bad side. For example, Anarchy embodies both rebellion and freeing ponies from oppression under government rule.
  • Five-Bad Band: Could be seen as this during the first part of Origins, but generally averted.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Despite their sometimes cruel nature, they ultimately DO want life to triumph and flourish, they just take a more "sink or swim" approach as opposed to the more nurturing approach of the Alicorns.
  • Jerkass God: Sometimes, their Blue and Orange Morality can make them rather harsh, but they're generally not INTENTIONALLY malevolent.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Physical God
  • The Power of the Void: In contrast to the Alicorn's The Power of Creation, which they lack (they're only capable of rearranging matter). Pandora is the only Draconequus capable of creating in any form due to being Imagination, and judging by the Shadow of Chernobull, hers is imperfect compared to the Alicorns'.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters
  • Time Abyss: Similarly to the Alicorns.

Elders

Draconequi Elders

Havoc/Phobia

Voiced by Adam Ferguson

  • 100% Adoration Rating: You know some of the damned souls in Pony Hell? Word of God says that some of them would try to avenge his death if somebody managed to kill him!
  • Abusive Parent: Loves to see his children's plans blow up in their faces and has no qualms about brutally punishing them himself. Though part of this may be more due to the Draconequi's Blue and Orange Morality, as their standards of 'fair punishment' seem far different than mortals and Alicorns, and he seems to have a decent relationship with Rancor. It's also stated he's still sore over Entropy erasing their son and he's more willing to listen to his children's backtalk.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Subverted. Rancor and Discord mention he has a pony Avatar to use, but actually wants it to be scary for the ponies. Given what he represents, it's little surprise really.
    • He tries to actually do this trope while meeting with Celestia, Luna, and Twilight to clear up some misconceptions, but has some difficulty with it.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Mass Hysteria and Fear in general. The survival instinct is stated to come from Him.
    • He's also the incarnation of Hell, and thus the punisher of those who live there.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: His teeth are roughly two times the size of Discord.
  • Big Bad: Of the first part of Origins.
    • Disc One Final Boss: Until his Avatar is mortally wounded by Cadence and eaten by Discord, at which point Discord took over.
  • Big Good: Despite his Concept, he's technically also this, as He is also fear saving lives. During the Finale Arc, he manifests as a foal named Phobia and gives the CMC some help dealing with what his son did.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Being Mass Hysteria personified, he considers watching terrified ponies 'fun family bonding time'. However, he does comprehend love and compassion though mainly that ponies fear for their loved ones. He's also the origin of the survival instinct and does enjoy watching fear save lives.
    • He explains later that he has many 'faces', some of which seem contradictory, due to being one of the fundamental aspects of creation.
    Havoc: I am a father, a tormentor, a trickster, a teacher, a punisher, a husband, a guardian, a watchmen, etc, you expect of the four fundamental rules of this universe to have only one face?
  • Brown Note: Looking at his true form will terrify ponies so badly they'll likely never sleep again. His voice will reduce them to horrified wrecks. And that's apparently the best case scenario.
  • The Chessmaster: Shows he's one heck of a benevolent one (no pun intended) with his actions to counter Discord during the Final Arc. He sets up for Button Mash to spread knowledge of RPG rules so that when Discord's endgame starts, those rules become part of the world. He then sends Button Mash home before it happens while he and Entropy set the CMC in place to be able to counter Discord's plans, resulting in Button being saved from corruption by his moon rock and getting video game based powers. He then pushes the CMC in the direction to meet up with him and learn the rules from him, as well as getting a powerful ally. It should be noted that he does all this while incarnating as a foal named Phobia and without Discord being any the wiser.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: It's stated by the Father of All Alicorns that despite what He personifies He's NOT evil. He just has Blue and Orange Morality. It's stated the survival instinct comes from Him and that He does enjoy the fact fear saves lives. The fact that Dark World!Fluttershy recognizes he and the Draconequi are this earns His respect.
    • It's also pointed out that he's the Warden of Hell, not evil incarnate. His job is to keep the wicked trapped there and punish them for their wrongdoing, not cause the wrong doing that sent them there in the first place. Even his role in Starlight's Trial was simply being the tempter to test her resolve rather than genuinely wanting to doom her.
    • He's basically the Big Good of the Finale Arc so far.
  • Did You Think I Can't Feel?: Luna realizes that even if He doesn't show it openly, Havoc genuinely does love His children and is still grieving D___t's demise. When Bright Eyes actually tells him she's sorry for His loss, Havoc says its the first time anyone has ever told him that and accepts her apology for destroying D___t's Shadow.
    • When D___t's Shadow is destroyed, Pandora and Strife have a conversation right in front of Havoc about how D___t wasn't a good Draconequus without realizing that Havoc is actually crying inside at D___t's Shadow being destroyed.
  • Dimension Lord: Of Pony Hell.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: Being he is Hell, he's capable of this, but only claims evil, unrepentant souls. He's once shown doing this to the Diamond Dog that murdered Shining's uncle Cool Sun and was killed by Shining Armor by swallowing the murderer's soul whole.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Is the Anthropomorphic Personification of Mass Hysteria and so much as looking at him will leave a mortal unable to sleep for the rest of their life at best. Thankfully, he's so powerful and massive, entering the mortal universe isn't possible for him.
    • He states at one point that if he manifested an Avatar into the mortal world powerful enough to beat Discord, it's mere manifesting would level the eastern seaboard of Equestria.
  • Fighting a Shadow: Created an Avatar he used to face the Alicorns on the battlefield during the Alicorn/Draconequi War with only a fraction of his power, since he's normally too powerful to do that. It/He went insane.
  • Friendly Enemy: With the Father of Alicorns, who he calls "Buddy".
  • Genius Loci: Pony Hell is actually located inside his body. If he dies, Pony Hell will cease to exist.
  • Gender Bender: During Starlight's trial he took the form of a female Alicorn version of her.
  • Good Feels Good: After he accepts Bright Eyes' sincere apology he says that it felt good to do so.
  • Graceful Loser: After Starlight's trial, where he lost because she admitted her sins and wanted forgiven, he tells the Father it was fun acting like they're poker buddies before leaving to welcome Film Critique to Pony Hell.
    • He points out to Celestia, Luna, and Twilight that honestly holds no ill will towards the Alicorns for winning the war, and that Discord being a sore loser is something Concepts SHOULDN'T be.
  • It Amused Me: When Starlight asked the Father why Havoc pretended to have a Villainous Breakdown when he saw he was losing the trial for her soul, the Father responds simply that it amused Havoc to do so.
  • Jerkass God: Most of his kids got it from him. (Pandemonium appears to have gotten his Hidden Heart of Gold only).
    • He points out later that this is only one 'face' of him, and other aspects of his being are far more benevolent.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Hell: His domain.
  • Large and In Charge: See Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever.
  • Large Ham: Discord got it from Him. He especially hams it up during Starlight's trial, where he basically acts like a character from Ace Attorney.
  • Mad God: See Sanity Slippage. Note; this only applies to his avatar, not the real Havoc.
  • Meaningful Name: In addition to his first name, the last name of the Draconequi (his children, and thus likely his) is Typhon, the father of all monsters from mythology.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: One of the only tips we've gotten as to what He actually looks like is that he has innumerable limbs, some of which are claws or tentacles.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Havoc is a pretty intimidating name. One of his titles is Emperor of Phobias, though he's also called Home For Infinite Losers. Given his personality, that last one is probably self proclaimed.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Is literally the God of this, being the Anthropomorphic Personification of Mass Hysteria and Fear. His symbol actually takes the form of whatever the viewer fears most.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Papa Wolf: He has no qualms about letting his family get themselves in trouble, so long as they deserved it. Fauna Luster help you if you hurt them unprovoked, because she and her husband are the only one who can.
    • It's also stated by the Father that He does hold it against Entropy that She erased their son and even cried when D___t's Shadow was destroyed..
  • Pet the Dog: Has had a few instances of this such as letting Dark World!Fluttershy take Fluttercruel both due to her argument and respect that she feared for her daughter's safety more than she feared Him and accepting Bright Eye's apology for destroying what remained of D__t.
    • Appearing to Celestia, Luna, and Twilight to not only explain away misconceptions they had, but generally be polite and a good host towards them. He even tells Celestia and Luna their family ISN'T extinct like they thought it was.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Relatively speaking. Between him and Entropy, he's the one most willing to listen to his children's gripes and actually does care about them. He also was willing to hear Dark World!Fluttershy out when she came to rescue Dark World!Fluttercruel from the Draconequi and handed Fluttercruel over without a fuss when she proved her point.
  • Running Gag: Him annoying Entropy, her erasing him from existence, then him willing himself back into it.
  • Sad Clown: Despite His happy go lucky personality and Large Ham tendencies (which are genuine as well), He genuinely does grieve over D___t being erased from existence and has never forgiven Entropy for it, he just doesn't show it externally. When D___t's Shadow was destroyed by Bright Eyes, he actually cried, but no one saw it except the souls in Pony Hell (which is Him) when it suddenly began to rain.
  • Sanity Slippage: His Avatar became drunk on the chaos of the Alicorn/Draconequi War and ended up going very insane. By Draconequi standards. The actual Havoc didn't, however.
  • Satanic Archetype: Well, not exactly (that would be Morning Star), but his domain is essentially Pony Hell, and he has a chariot pulled by the damned ponies sent there.
  • Take Our Word for It: His true form is never actually described except for very vague details such as him being a giant horned serpent and having innumerable claws and tentacles. Otherwise he's simply described as every fear that ever has, is, and ever will be personified. According to Word of God, he didn't want to give an in-depth description of Havoc as nothing could ever be scary enough to live up to what He is. Most pictures take this into account by being extremely blurred with no real details.
  • Top God: One of four.
  • Troll: Seems to get a kick out of being this towards his wife. Notably, he's one of the only beings in existence that can. Well, now we know where Discord got it. The big difference between him and his son is Havoc doesn't direct his love of this towards EVERYONE.
  • Villain Song: Has one called 'Here's To Chaos', a rewrite of the G1 villain Lavan's song 'Here's to Power'. Though, in universe, it's said Strife taught Lavan it as a tribute to Havoc.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: Word of God has confirmed that the same things that apply to the Father of All Alicorns apply to him. That on top of the fact merely looking at him is enough to render you incapable of sleeping for the rest of your days at best.
  • You Got Guts: When Dark World!Fluttershy entering Entropy's Realm for the sake of her daughter, He tells her she's impressed Him by doing so and thus he'll hear her out.

Entropy/Maud Pie

Voiced by Heather Gold

  • Abusive Parent: Routinely imprisoned Destruction in a black hole just to build his addiction to destruction to it's breaking point. Though truth be told, it isn't really her fault, nothing really has any value to her due to what she personifies. That said, Strife and Rancor both seem to be loyal to her.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Heat Death and nothingness.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: She's described as being so huge, the pupil of her eye dwarfs Celestia.
  • Berserk Button: Stating anything about her except she exists, calling her a Draconequi, or that she looks like one, and actually being hurt.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: She's the embodiment of the End of All Things, thus nothing has value to her, even her own children, as all things are equal in her eyes.
    • It's also stated she has an understanding of love; love comes from nothing.
  • The Comically Serious: Is never played for laughs herself, but considering what her husband is like, their interactions are sometimes comical because of her seriousness.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Always yells "YOU DON'T EXIST!" before erasing someone or something from existence.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Due to being…well, an Eldritch Abomination, she didn't consider the Windigos would be destroyed, harming her in the process.
  • Dimension Lord: Of Oblivion, basically. Her domain is inhabited by those who have been erased from existence.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Stating anything about her in her presence other than the fact she exists is a crime punishable by being erased from existence. As is calling her a Draconequi…or saying she looks like one, because she came first…Basically, any slight she perceives as committed against her is punishable by this.
  • The Dreaded: The only beings that don't fear her are the other Elders, who are the only ones as powerful as she is. Even Discord seems quite afraid of ticking her off.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Remember the Windigos? They're tiny pieces of her!
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Considered open war with the alicorns too extreme at first (which is why she erased D___t). It took her actually feeling the pain of life to actually go through with it.
  • The Evils of Free Will: While she doesn't really do anything about it, she believes beings with freewill will inevitably destroy themselves. The fact that life keeps proving her wrong is one of the few things that annoys her. Though given this information came from Celestia, who doesn't have the most favorable opinion of the Draconequi, it's unknown how true this is.
  • Evil Matriarch: Treats her family as tools to be used and disposed of as necessary. Maybe. Given she's an Eldritch Abomination that the gods consider that trope, it's hard to tell.
  • Evil Virtues: Well, Evil is hard to qualify due to that whole "different morality system" business, but Entropy has no interest in Lying.
  • Face Palm: Has this reaction to Havoc pretending to have a Villainous Breakdown during Starlight's trial for his own amusement.
  • Hypocrite: For all her talk to Celestia about taking responsibility for and accepting the consequences of one's actions, she becomes unreasonable after her Windigo plan backfires.
  • Genius Loci: Like Havoc, Oblivion is located inside her body. If she dies, it will cease to exist.
  • God in Pony Form: Naturally, she's capable of assuming pony form whenever she pleases. It's revealed Maud Pie is a mortal incarnation of her, apparently resulting from her shielding the CMC from Discord's end game plan. The human version is implied to be the same thing, but likely has a different origin.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Is rather easy to tick off if met face to face, and her default reaction is 'erase it from existence'.
  • Ice Queen: Considering what she embodies, it's pretty reasonable.
  • I Love You Because I Can't Control You: The reason why she chose Havoc was because he was the only thing who didn't fear her, as said by Word of God.
  • Jerkass God: There is no other trope to describe her.
  • Lack of Empathy: See Blue and Orange Morality.
  • Large and In Charge: See Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: With Havoc. Which is actually a source of some comedy, considering they're Eldritch Abominations. That said, its stated she chose HIM, possibly specifically because he's one of the only beings in the universe to not fear her.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Is implied to have manipulated things to lead to the Alicorn/Draconequi War in order to bring on the end of the universe sooner. Subverted, in that Havoc reveals this was only Celestia's perception of her, and she actually had no intentions on ending the universe early.
  • Mother of a Thousand Young: Has shades of this, being the mother of the Draconequi despite, while they resemble them, is explicitly said to not be one herself, also created the Windigos from herself, and created Nightmare Legion from the shadows in her realm during the Draconequi/Alicorn War.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Both her real name and most of her titles. Especially "She Who Is The End Of All Things", the "Queen of Oblivion", and "The Anti-Mother of All Things".
  • Never My Fault: She deluded herself into thinking the painful feedback from the Windigos was not an inevitable consequence of her actions, and demands an unreasonable restitution.
  • No Indoor Voice: Hard to say given the nature of the flashbacks and who she is, but whenever she talks, IT'S ALWAYS TYPED LIKE THIS, just like her opposite number, Fauna Luster
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Offing the Offspring: Erased her firstborn D___t because __ Called The Old Lady Out, and that the rest of the family know, but aren't allowed to ever talk about it. As it turns out, her real reason was because he was a Knight Templar who wanted to wipe out all the deities.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Unlike most examples, this is literally her job as the Anthropomorphic Personification of the end of the universe.
  • Opposites Attract: She and Havoc couldn't be more different, but it's stated that she chose him so she has to be attracted to him somehow.
  • Power of the Void
  • Ret Gone: Has the terrifying ability to erase beings from existence. Neo Stream was one of her victims, but even Alicorns aren't immune. She can erase Havoc, but he just wills himself back into it. This happens so frequently it's basically their version of bickering Like an Old Married Couple.
    • She apparently did this to one of her children at some point. Who is only referred to as D____t, though the Draconequi at least remember said sibling, but can't even say the gender. It's eventually revealed she did this because he wanted to perform genocide on the Concepts, which would not have ended well for the universe.
  • Screaming Birth: Does not have a pleasant experience giving birth to Rancor (due to being the opposite of life and thus the act of creating is even more painful for her), to the point the universe quakes from it. Afterwards, she erases Havoc from existence (he wills himself back into it seconds later) for saying they might have to try again.
  • Straw Nihilist: Considering what she embodies, it's pretty reasonable.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Is the most truly malevolent Draconequi besides Discord, though she does have some beneficial qualities such as desiring suffering to end.
  • Top God: One of four.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Undergoes one when three regular ponies stop the Windigos from exterminating all life on the planet, precipitating the Alicorn/Draconequus War (actually hurting her in the process).

Alicorn Elders

Fauna Luster

Voiced by Beth Mayoh

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Existence, though also of Empathy. According to Celestia, the Elements of Harmony are infused with her power through the bearer's bond (thus why they're more powerful than the Rainbow of Light) and the Fires of Friendship was also a fraction of her power. She's also Life, and the creator of all souls.
  • Divine Intervention: It's stated that the Fires of Friendship used to defeat the Windigos WAS her power granted to Clover the Clever and company, but it was still a major feat on their part to access her power in the first place. Pretty much using Friendship to power the Elements calls on her power and combines it with the Rainbow of Light.
  • Dimension Lord: Of the Alicorn's Realm.
    • It also appears She can be described as Pre-Life, as She's literally The Source of all souls.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A benevolent version. She's every bit as indescribable and incomprehensible as Havoc and Entropy, but loves all living things and her presence is described as extremely pleasant.
  • The Empath: Is the embodiment of Empathy, so naturally applies. This is best shown talking to Dark World!Twilight, where no matter what She's asked, she's completely understanding of why Twilight feels the way she does and gives her logical explanations.
    Fauna Luster: ASK. THERE IS NOTHING YOU COULD SAY TO ME I WILL NOT UNDERSTAND, NOTHING THAT WOULD MAKE ME HATE YOU.
  • The Evils of Free Will: Inverted. She's a strong supporter of freewill. Life has proved to support her viewpoint more than it does Entropy.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She's literally the Mother of All Things, and every soul comes from Her, meaning every living being is literally Her child.
  • Goddess of Good: Is described as being the perfect empathy and loving all things.
  • Good Hurts Evil: The Elements of Harmony work by tapping into just a minute portion of her essence.
  • Good Parent: Clearly loves her children dearly (and all of existence), and is a pretty fair mother from what we see.
  • In Mysterious Ways: Subverted, like Her mate, She actually explains things in a logical fashion when asked.
  • Made of Good: The Fires of Friendship used to destroy the Windigos? That was a tiny piece of her.
  • No Indoor Voice: Hard to say given the nature of the flashbacks and who she is, but whenever she talks, IT'S ALWAYS TYPED LIKE THIS, just like her antithesis Entropy.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Out of Focus: Notably the only one of the Elders to only appear in flashbacks, despite being the one named after Lauren Faust.
    • She finally plays a central role during Dark World!Twilight's ascension.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Just like Her Husband.
  • Significant Anagram: Her name is an anagram of Lauren Faust.
  • Tarot Motifs: 21st, the World.
  • Team Mom: For the Alicorns, and life in general, considering she personifies it.
  • Top God: One of four.

Father of All Alicorns

Voiced by Nifty Koala

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Existence, Wisdom, Sanity, Truth, and the Afterlife.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Pretty much half his dialog to Liarjack consists of these.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Is likely one of the kindest and most loving beings in creation, and very forgiving of the genuinely repentant...but even He has His limits and is not somedeity you want to clop off. He offered His grandson Cupid's murderer a chance to repent and be forgiven for the massive amount of damage she caused in the process, and when she didn't have an ounce of regret, He more or less told Venus Do With Her As You Will and left the killer to her fate. According to Venus, ticking off Havoc is a better idea than ticking off the Father, if much easier to do.
  • Brutal Honesty: Sometimes. He's the embodiment of Truth, so he doesn't lie.
  • Dimension Lord: Of the universe the story takes place in. He is also literally Pony Heaven, or at least it's inside him.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A benevolent example. When Liarjack sees him, she literally can't describe him as anything other than a piece of the night sky cut in the shape of an Alicorn, all his other qualities are so apparently contradictory that she's incapable of making sense of them.
  • Forgiveness: All forgiving if the one seeking it is genuinely repentant. This is because he loves all life and genuinely doesn't want to see any soul condemned if its possible to save it. He even quotes the Arc Words of Dark World to Starlight; forgiveness is not earned, it is given.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Considers no living thing worthless and loves all life.
  • God of Good: Shares this role with his mate. All life is precious to him.
  • Good Hurts Evil: Liarjack, who was still hanging onto her sins, tried to touch him, and experienced horrible pain due to it. The Father of All Alicorns clearly didn't WANT to do it, it's just how things work.
  • Good Parent: He's a good father. He does punish his children, but in a merciful way compared to the Draconequi. He punishes Luna for helping Celestia nearly cause The End of the World as We Know It for Ponyland by reverting her to an infant (reflecting her own immaturity). In comparison, Discord, who did the same thing, was punished by his family by being killed and resurrected several hundred times in horrifically gruesome ways (Destruction was apparently punished exactly the same for a similar slight).
  • Heaven: He apparently is Pony Heaven, or at least it's inside his body.
  • In Mysterious Ways: Subverted consistently. Probably due to being Wisdom incarnate, He's quite willing to explain why He did something if asked, as shown with his interactions with Liarjack and Starlight.
    Applejack: Yah couldn't have just told meh from the start!
    Father of All Alicorns: If I Had Just Told You, You Would Have Treated It As Nothing More Than A Lecture.
    Applejack: Ah guess yah got a point there.
  • Last-Second Chance: His willingness to do this is a key personality trait of His. He even offered one to His grandson's murderer. Though in that case, He showed that while He's all forgiving, getting on his bad side is a terrible terrible idea.
  • Made of Good: To be expected when you're literally Pony Heaven.
  • No Name Given: Never named in the story itself. According to Word of God, his name can't be pronounced by mortals, though technically the original intent was to give him the name of one of the "fathers" of the my little pony toy line.
    • Though Havoc calls him "Buddy" if that's worth anything.
    • Amicitia later refers to him as BDCZM.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Is understanding of his children and the various mortals who come in contact with him (even helping Dark World!Applebloom redeem her sister and giving Melody glimpse of the future to ease her concerns about her granddaughter. He's also all merciful and will forgive anyone who is genuinely repentant, and that's pretty much the only requirement to get into Heaven. Given he's the Anthropomorphic Personification of Wisdom (and thus the Perfect Wisdom), this is to be expected. The guy even offered His grandson's murderer a chance to be forgiven.
  • Tarot Motifs: 5th, the Hierophant.
  • Team Dad: To the Alicorns and all of creation, natch. Notably to Liarjack.
  • Top God: One of four.
  • The Spock: Described by Celestia as, "Logical and Rational", but also holding all life as significant.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: When Liarjack sees him, the only concrete thing she can grasp about him is he appears to be a piece of the night sky made into the form of a pony. Everything else about him is simply so seemingly contradictory (due to him being the Anthropomorphic Personification of Existence) that she's incapable of making sense of any of it and finally just gives up trying to describe him. Since he's a good guy, it doesn't drive her mad, it just confuses the hay out of her.

Alicorns

Major Arcana

Puerilis

Amicitia/Dark World!Twilight/ Half-Light Dawn, Half-Light Noon, Half-Light Dusk

See "Epilogue Timeline-Heroes" and "Other Characters" Sections for more details

  • Ambiguous Gender: Gender was originally unknown because she hadn't existed before, but she turns out to be female.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Magic, Friendship, and Happy Endings.
  • Badass Boast: The first thing we hear her say after completing her ascension.
    "With the rainbow of light in one hoof. And the rainbow of darkness in the other, I do not write the rules, I do not oversee the rules, I am the rules! I AM MAGIC!"
  • Big Good: Of Dark World (as the Benevolent Interloper) and the main timeline (as the Interviewers).
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: Is the only Major Arcana Alicorn not named or detailed. As it turns out, she's Dark World!Twilight, having ascended after merging with Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox.
  • Deity Of Pony Origin: The only Major Arcana Alicorn to be born from a mortal.
  • God of Good: She's the Goddess of Happy Endings.
  • Happy Endings: One of the things she personifies.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sort of. In order to ensure the events of Dark World don't happen in all timelines, she splits herself into four beings. The first three are the Interviewers, the fourth? Shining Armor.
  • I Have Many Names: Still goes by Twilight even after her ascension to Amicitia, and then the three Interviewers each get their own names after the split.
  • Literal Split Personality: In order to create a timeline separate from Dark World, she creates Shining Armor from herself, with the remainder dividing up into the three ponies who become the Interviewers.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Opt Out: Didn't participate in the Alicorn-Draconequus War.
  • Physical Goddess
  • Tarot Motifs: #1, The Magician.

Abbatissa/Starglow

Voiced by Becky Horton

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Prayer and Balance between conscience and instinctual decisions.
  • Divine Intervention: Is essentially the primary medium for this, acting as a road between the deities and the mortals.
  • God of Good: The Goddess of Prayer, which basically means she spends most of her time listening to every prayer in the entire universe, including indirect ones, and making sure they get to the deity that needs to hear them in order for mortals to get help when they need it.
  • The Gods Must Be Lazy: Arguably living proof this isn't the case, given she's the one who makes sure the Gods can assist mortals and is quite the busy mare herself.
  • Heart Is An Awesome Power: She's the Personfication of Prayer. While this might not sound incredibly impressive at first glance, she's the one who hears all the prayers in creation. Every. Last. One. And is responsible for making sure they get to the proper deity, which let's them directly aid mortals effectively. Because of this Breezy Blossom was able to be saved among other things. There's a reason she's considered one of the most important Deities by the other Gods.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Physical Goddess
  • Tarot Motifs: 2, The High Priestess

Imperatrix

Princeps

Venus /Happyglow

Voiced by Suzanne Muir

  • All-Loving Hero: Seeing as she's literally love itself. The one exception was her son's murderer, and even then it was more because of how royally said murderer screwed up the universe without remorse (which was second only to Eclipse's plan in death toll).
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Love, all kinds.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's the Goddess of Love and is incapable of true hatred, and quick to forgive...but for the love of everything do not clop her off, and more importantly, do not be unrepentant for your wrongdoing if you do. You will regret it.
  • Forgiveness: Gives this to the Rainbow Dash who was Eclipse's Nightmare Manacle.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Is everyone's love, and thus cares about everything.
  • Love Goddess: The Goddess of all kinds of loves.
  • Mama Bear: Her son, Cupid, was killed by a mortal Pegasus. Her response was to descend to mortal reality in an Unstoppable Rage. The legend says she either had killed the Pegasus, destroyed her identity and made her her new child, or had Pandora erase her from existence. Celestia says Venus refuses to say what, and said that the legend didn't do what she really did justice. Turns out she did all three except destroying her identity, instead taking a piece of her to create a new child, then throwing her into Tartarus.
  • Meaningful Name: Her full name is Venustas Ai Astarte.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Physical Godess
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: When her son was killed.
  • Technical Pacifist: Only fought in The War when there was no other option to do so.
  • Theres No Kill Like Over Kill: Her revenge for her son's death was very through.
  • The Power of Love: Is the literal embodiment of this. And she is not someone to underestimate either. The reformed Nightmare Manacle notes that she's the power behind several of Equestria's 'do not under any circumstances buck with this' magical objects
  • Unstoppable Rage: Killing the son of a Physical Goddess? Not a good idea...At. All. Probably an even worse one thanks to her being a Love Goddess.
  • Tarot Motifs: 6, The Lovers.

Currus

Voiced by Duskstroke Serenade

Justitia

Voiced by Sara Clark

Eremo

Rota Fortuna

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Fate, Cause and Effect, Consequences, and Free Will.
  • Badass Boast: Gives one to the Eldritch Abominations she helped imprison in Tartarus.
    Rota Fortuna: You should leave all the same. Or would you rather I 'kick your flanks', as she so eloquently put it, again?"
  • Broken Angel: Discord implies he tried to saw her wings off at some point, but we never find out if it stuck.
    • Artificial Limbs: Her later appearances in 7 Dreams/Nightmares and Dark World describe one of her wings as looking like its made of clockwork, implying it's meant to replace the one Discord sawed off, meaning it did stick.
  • The Hecate Sisters: Has a one mare version of this going on; she constantly shifts between being a filly, an adult mare, and an old mare.
  • Mama Bear: Comes to her descendant Clover's defense against the group of Eldritch Abominations she helped seal in Tartarus.
  • Non-Linear Character: While all Alicorns and Draconequi qualify, she created the roads of Fate, even though she doesn't decide what someone's fate has to be and lets them choose.
  • Physical Goddess
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives a scathing one to Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox when the latter is being defeated by the Dark World Elements of Harmony, which drives her into a Villainous BSOD.
  • Tarot Motifs: 10, The Wheel Of Fate
  • You Cannot Fight Fate: Subverted. She laid the roads of fate, and can predict the probable outcome of something, but she doesn't force any particular fate on anyone, meaning they choose their own fate and it appears things can happen which even she can't predict. When that happens, she doesn't appear particularly shocked or angry, implying she's perfectly fine with ponies choosing to Screw Destiny. Makes sense, given her Mother's belief in the importance of free will.
    • It's later revealed she was actually the Goddess of Free Will.
    • Turns out you can't, and yet you can. As she informs Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox, those who actively try to fight against fate are caught in the spokes of its wheel. Only those who embrace fate can recognize it and steer it in a new direction.

Leo

Voiced by: Mitchell Sanders

Pensilis

Voiced by Ian MacLaren

Mortis

Voiced by Thom Jackson

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Death, Rebirth, and Change.
  • Badass: Case in point, he has to deal with a time traveling Rancor. He treats her as a minor annoyance and easily paralyzes her with acupuncture when she gets out of hoof. Whether or not she already succeed in stealing back Destruction's power in her timeline isn't clear, but disabling the Goddess of Violence in seconds is no small feat. Considering he's the one who has to escort sinners, including people like Tirek and the near omnipotent Lavan, to Hell, it's little surprise he's a Badass.
  • Chekhov's Gunpony: First appears in one of the possible futures Applejack glimpses during her first look into the Truth, well before his introduction in Origins.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite his job and appearance (black with bone wings), he comes across as a pretty decent guy, if not burdened by the difficulty of his job.
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: Despite being Death, he's not evil in the least and generally seems kind, even if he's burdened by his job (who wouldn't be?). He also doesn't seem to have a problem with allowing certain souls to remain on Earth until they've finished their Unfinished Business, as happened with the G2 mane cast (none of them wanted to pass on until all of them were together).
  • The Grim Reaper: One of his jobs.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Strife; they've even had children together and are apparently married.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Physical God
  • Pressure Point: Uses acupuncture to easily disable Rancor when she, while visiting the past, starts getting out of hand.
  • Tarot Motifs: 13, Death.

Morning Star

Voiced by Micheal A. Novelli

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Intended to be one of Perfection and Beauty, but ultimately became the embodiment of Evil and Temptation.
  • Bigger Bad: Serves as one for Tirek and Lilith the First Witch, as he was the one that sent Pandora's Box of dark magic to the planet where they'd find it and use it's power.
  • The Corrupter: Goes with being Temptation. What little we see of him implies this.
  • Evil Mentor: Served as one for Discord, teaching him the art of manipulation.
  • The Evils of Free Will: Believes Free Will ruins the perfection of the universe and desires to destroy it.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Attempted to make himself this by stealing Pandora's Box of Dark Magic and using it in an attempt to make a problem only he could solve to convince his parents he was right.
  • Fallen Alicorn: Turned against his parents and tried to conquer the universe, believing himself to be more perfect than them.
  • God of Evil: Is literally the Concept of Evil.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He taught Discord to be one. Not a surprise, considering who he's based on.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is what Lucifer (the devil's real name) means.
  • Non-Linear Character: Possibly the only aversion, as he's imprisoned.
  • The Paragon Always Rebels: Is quite often mentioned as having been loved by his siblings and was beautiful to apparently a Charm Person level. And yet he fell and became the literal incarnation of evil.
  • Physical God
  • Predecessor Villain: To Discord, his pupil.
  • Pride: As with who he's based on, this is Morning Star's Fatal Flaw.
  • Satanic Archetype: He is the Devil Tarot after all.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was imprisoned for his crimes, but released by Havoc to lead the Draconequi in the war. His fate afterwards is unknown, but Word of God has said he was either killed in the war or imprisoned in Hell as part of the Draconequi's end of peace treaty between them and the Alicorns.
  • Tarot Motifs: 15, The Devil.
  • Ultimate Lifeform: Was intended to be the deity equivalent of this as the Concept of Perfection. Unfortunately, he believed he was more perfect than the elders and turned into the Concept of Evil instead. In his lecture to Justitia, he still refers to himself as 'the Perfect Being', however.
  • Villain Of Another Story: He's clearly a big threat and a Satanic Archetype, but Discord is the Big Bad and not him. We finally see some of his villainy when he sends Pandora's Box of dark magic to the planet.

Turris

Voiced by Godzillawolf

Galaxia/DazzleglowStar-Reacher

Judicium

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Balance, Judgment, and Fair Say.
  • Dimension Lord: While all the Alicorns and Draconequi are this to their own realm, we get to see his in Starlight's Gaiden chapter, which appears as a courtroom. Though according to Word of God, that was actually it taking on A Form You Are Comfortable With.
  • The Judge: We don't see him actually judge that much, in the two cases he would, his Father takes over.
    • If Starlight's case was anything to go by, it seems he enables souls to judge themselves with him providing advice. However, it's not as easy as it sounds.
    • It's revealed he had to precede over Morning Star's trial and the Dark World version of him judges Dark World!Fluttercruel's case as well. Notably, he found both guilty of their crimes despite them being family, as the ability to let things such as love of his family influence his verdict is an ability he's physically incapable of doing. He's always a fair and impartial judge by his very nature.
  • Magic Versus Science: In one of the few cases he did judge, he ruled that neither Magic nor Science is inherently better, as both are reaching for the truth of how the world works.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Physical God
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He IS the personification of Fair Say.
  • Tarot Motifs: 20, Judgment.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: Doesn't cause these, he's merely the one who sounds the trumpet to announce it's time for it to happen once a timeline has gotten to the point it has to die.

Known Minor Arcana

Princess Gaia (Fluttershy)

See "Mane Cast", "Antagonist", and "Epilogue Timeline-Heroes" Sections for more details

Princess Anasi (Dark World!Trixie)

  • Ascended Fanon: First appeared in a Recursive Fanfiction story which then became a prior loop of the Dark World after Eclipse's reveal.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Theatre, Drama, Storytelling, and Trickery.
  • Deity Of Pony Origin: Was a previous incarnation of Dark World!Trixie who ascended thanks to Cadence.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Before her mortal life was ended by Nightmare Eclipse, she left the Wound That Will Not Heal on her face.
  • The Ghost: Is only mentioned by name with nothing else being known about this Alicorn.
    • Finally appears during Dark World!Twilight's ascension and appears later to speak with the Nightmares.
  • Large Ham: Well, she is the literal personification of storytelling, so this is to be expected. Her realm is described as being the single hammiest place in creation, and since it's literally her...
  • Meaningful Name: Derived from Anansi, the keeper of stories in African myth.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • No Sell: She's immune to Nightmare Mirror's truth vision. She explains this is because she's a Concept and Mirror is still incomplete, so while their Alicorns would be even, her powers currently trump Mirror's.
  • Not Quite Dead: Somehow survived her universe being destroyed.
  • Physical Goddess
  • Sole Survivor: Her timeline was erased by Nightmare Eclipse, but she managed to survive and become a Concept. However, her Scootaloo and Gilda were revealed to have been saved by Manacle and Whisper and she's ultimately reunited with them.
  • Tarot Motifs: Queen of Wands.
  • The Trickster: Is the Goddess of Trickery.

Queen Liberalis (Dark World!Rarity)

See "Epilogue Timeline-Heroes" Sections for more details

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the Mortal World.
  • Deity Of Pony Origin: Ascended after the Elements of Chaos (seemingly?) overloaded when Twilight bequeathed the entire Dark World universe to her.
  • Dimension Lord: Unlike the other deities (who's realm is in the spirit world), hers is the Mortal Universe.
  • Genius Loci: As the Concept of the Mortal World, she literally is the mortal universe. Nightmare Manacle describes standing in the mortal world as being akin to standing on her skin.
  • The Ghost: Like Anasi, is only mentioned by name with nothing else being known.
    • Appears just after Twilight's ascension.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Physical Goddess
  • Tarot Motifs: Queen of Coins.

Pandemonium/Pandora/Desire

Voiced by Lindsey Lloyd

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Imagination, pretty much. This includes creativity and hallucinations, which is probably why she tends to accidentally drive ponies mad.
  • Badass: As shown in Big Sister Instinct, she can be pretty dangerous when she's serious. She also showed it when she showed up to help Shining deal with Makarov.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Shows up using Makarov's destroyed Paradox Engine as a portal to prevent Shining from killing Makarov (because he needs to DELETE Makarov to Set Right What Once Went Wrong) and proceeds to set off all the plot holes in Makarov's 'story,' allowing the damage Shining caused to his flagship to take hold and giving the allies a chance.
  • Big Sister Instinct: When she saw Discord seriously hurt in the war, she went berserk to protect him.
  • Cloudcuckooland: Her Realm. It's a nonsensical labyrinth inhabited by beings of fantasy such as Ms. Smartypants and the cast of Twilight and Shining's mother's novel. Given she's the Goddess of Imagination, this makes sense.
  • The Cutie: She easily has the Most Likeable Personality out of all the draconequi.
  • Genius Ditz: Despite being The Ditz among the Draconequi, she actually is rather intelligent about things pertaining to storytelling, as shown when she confronts her son, General Admiral Makarov and is able to point out nearly every flaw in his 'story' and use certain ones, such as him using an upgraded version of the Imagination Engine that let him out of her Box in the first place and his excessive amount of detail into his weapons against him.
    • And then there's her plan to counter Discord's endgame. What is it? Arrange for AK Yearling to be somewhere safe so she could be offered the chance to become the real Daring Do by merging with Puzzlemint's Shadow of Existence. This plan goes off without a hitch.
  • I Have Many Names: Desire and Pandora are her alternate names.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: See Badass.
  • Mad Artist: Not per se, as Imagination is her domain, but at times her inspiring does leave species crazy.
  • Mad Scientist: Has aspects of this, as, being Imagination, she has innumerable ideas and is compelled to try them. Word of God and her actions in story, however, imply she genuinely cares for her creations and is as horrified as anyone else when they go wrong. Most either stay in her realm or are sealed away in her box.
  • Meaningful Name: In addition to her real name, Word of God has revealed her middle name is Atë (that's pronounced "Et" by the way) (her last name is Typhon, just like Discord), the Greek Goddess of mischief, delusion, and folly.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: She is an draconequus after all. Anyway, she's got the left arm of a grizzly bear, her right arm is gnarled, green, and covered in warts, her left wing is that of a swan, her right wing is that of a flutterpony, her left leg belongs to a black cat, her right leg belongs to a duckling, and finally she's got the tail of a fox.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • No Sell: Makarov tries to kill her with his Desert Deer pistol. She prevents it from firing by pointing out he never thought of HOW it worked and proceeds to eat it when he keeps trying to fire at her. Justified, as he was trying to use Imagination against the Anthropomorphic Personification of it.
  • Nice Guy: It just serves to prove that she is the Token Good Teammate.
  • Pet the Dog: Promises Story Belle that none of her stories will be forgotten.
    • At the end of the Wedding Arc, as an apology for Chrysalis' actions and a thank-you for dealing with her, she breaks Shining Armor's writer's block.
    • She promises Yearling that should she choose not to take Pandora's offer to become the true Daring Do, she'll still take very good care of her and make sure no harm comes to her.
  • Physical Goddess
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: Gives one just before stripping Makarov of his Plot Armor.
    Time to help end one disturbance by creating another disturbance!
  • Plot Hole: Is capable of invoking these as an attack. She does it to Makarov to give Shining and company a chance to stop him.
  • Shoot the Dog: Has no choice but to help Shining Armor erase Makarov, her child from existence because of the threat he's become. Keep in mind, this is the Draconequus stated to be too kindhearted to take part in Discord's punishments and she had to help delete her own child.
  • Token Good Teammate: Seems to be the most genuinely good Draconequi. She has a habit of driving ponies insane trying to inspire them, but that honestly frustrates her to no end. Sadly she's also responsible for at least two monsters that threaten the end of the world as we know it.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: She genuinely wants to do the right thing...but for some reason, everything she does tends to cause more harm than good. For example, she tries to inspire artists? They end up going insane. It's also implied she's accidentally responsible for the creation of Makarov/The Shadow of Chernobull, even if the Hooviets were the ones that let it loose, and is trying to help fix that one. She's aware of her status as this and quite frustrated by it.
    • She also created Chrysalis. Though in that case, Pandora wasn't responsible for the monster Chrysalis ultimately became and merely gave her life.

Destruction

Voiced by Germanicy

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of, well, destruction. Mass destruction, to be precise.
  • Deader Than Dead: Word of God says that not even the elders can bring him back to life.
  • Death by Irony: After he died he was completely destroyed, there is no way for him to come back to life.
  • Immature Muscle
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: His name is Destruction and he destroys things.
  • Killed Off for Real: Was killed and eaten by Discord, along with his power, making him one of the only one of the gods that's confirmed to be dead.
  • Mad Bomber: His preferred method of causing destruction is to make things "go boom."
  • Meaningful Name: His middle name is Shiva, the Destroyer in Hindu mythology. His primary role is to destroy what needs to be destroyed so things can begin anew, which also fits with Shiva's role in mythology, who destroyed the world so Brahmā could make a new one in its place.
    • Consdering that it is his job to destroy things, his first name, Destruction, is also meaningful.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: He is a draconequus after all. Anyway, he's got the left arm of a gorilla, his right arm is actually an octopus tentacle, his left wing is actually a lizard crest, his right wing's a dove's, his left leg is a bull's, his right leg is that of a buffalo, and lastly he's got the tail of a monkey.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Nonstandard Character Design: At least according to Dalekolt. (He's in the upper right corner.)
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Even by his race's standards. He once destroyed a black hole! And he has no control over it, as if he doesn't destroy something, he becomes a feral beast that has to destroy enough to state it.
  • Physical God
  • Power Incontinence: He literally can't control his urge to destroy things, if he doesn't do it, it builds until he goes berserk and destroys everything in his path to state it. This can result in it building until he can destroy a black hole.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Is more childishly destructive than anything else.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: His 'Omega State', pretty much caused by a build up of his destructive power and impulses. He goes completely berserk and will destroy whatever happens to be standing in front of him at the time. This includes an entire civilization and a black hole (even Entropy was impressed by that).
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Literally. He doesn't want to destroy things, something is wrong with him that makes him need to destroy things, and he hates it. Oh, and Discord killed and ate him!

Anarchy

Voiced by Joe McCordnote 

  • Anarchy Is Chaos: Subverted. He is a Draconequus, and thus chaos, but he just wants a civilization with no leadership or class structure, not absolute chaos.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Anarchy and Freedom.
  • Berserk Button: After Discord unleashed the Windigos, he drops his normally calm demeanor, ranting that had Discord not allowed the Windigos in, the ponies could have created a classless, authority free society: his dream goal.
    • He also seems perturbed by Discord's Evil Overlord tendencies, as the idea of an omnipotent tyrant ruling endlessly is the opposite of what he wants.
  • Badass Finger Snap: Like Discord, (and presumably the rest of his siblings) he can activate his powers by snapping his fingers.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: He went through a 'rebellious teenager' phase. He did so by apparently becoming orderly and wearing a business suit.
    Anarchy: We’re Nature’s Fury! How ELSE was I supposed to be rebellious?!
  • The Gods Must Be Lazy: He is literally pretty lazy. He'll do his job, but honestly just wants to get it done and over with so he can go back to playing video games.
  • My Family Right or Wrong: He considered the fight for Ragnarok stupid, but decided to go with his family to do it. Somewhat ironic, considering what he is.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: He is a draconequus after all. Anyway, his left arm is a dingo's, his right arm is a raven's, his left wing is that of a dragonfly, his right wing is a vulture's, his left leg is that of a coyote, and his right leg is a fox's. Oh, and he's got the tail of a rattlesnake.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Physical God
  • Punch Clock Villain: Well villain may be too strong a word, but he generally is lazy and wants to get whatever job he's been ordered to get done done and then goof off. However, if motivated he typically does get the job done.
  • The One Guy: Originally, there were four males to two females, but after Discord turned into an Evil Overlord not associated with the Draconequi (and Anarchy doesn't like him), Destruction got eaten, and ________ got poofed out of existence by Entropy, Anarchy is the only boy left among the Draconequi siblings. Then Rancor was born.
  • This Cannot Be!: Gives this reaction when he sees one of his champions (the pony version of Bane) beaten.
  • Torches and Pitchforks: Is apparently capable of inciting these kinds of things, as shown when an alternate universe version of him kicked on up to help Amicitia destroy the Rainbow Factory.

Strife

See "Antagonists" section.

Rancor/Animosity/ Disruption

Voiced by TBA

See "Epilogue Timeline-Villains" section for additional tropes

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of revenge, violence, and passions. And eventually, mass destruction.
  • Blind Obedience: Still new to the family, she follows her Parents' orders without question. Of course, given the Unreliable Narrator that talked about them, this probably actually falls more into Undying Loyalty.
  • The Cameo: Appears in Melody's 7 Dreams/Nightmares chapter, having apparently been sent back to participate in the G3 Cosmic Retcon. According to Word of God, she went back to get Princess Rarity's autograph because she wants one from all of Melody's lives, as she's her favorite singer.
  • Meaningful Name: Her middle name is Adrestria (her last name is Typhon, like her siblings), who in Greek Mythology is a daughter of Ares and minor goddess of revenge.
  • Mood-Swinger: Of a sort. She swings back and forth between being an angry, vengeful, serious spirit and an over eager, happy teenage god.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: She is an draconequus after all. Anyway, she's got the left arm of a Tasmanian wolf's, her right arm is a moa's, her left wing is a pterodactyl's, her right wing is that of an archeopteryx, her left leg's a saber tooth tiger's, her right leg's a kouprey's, and last but not least she's got the tail of a shark.
  • Non-Linear Character
  • Odd Name Out: Out of all her siblings, she is the first one to lack a birth name starting with 'D'.
    • It turns out she had to earn a name with the letter D by stealing Destruction's power.
  • Physical Goddess
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: When first born.
  • Revenge: One of the things she represents.
  • Sixth Ranger
  • Theme Naming: All of the animals that make up her body are extinct.
  • Tyke Bomb: Born to do a very specific task: steal Destruction's power back from Discord.
  • War Goddess: Not explicitly Warfare, but considering she's the Goddess of Violence and Passions, it likely falls in her portfolio.
  • Weapon of Choice: The spear that killed Venus' son, given to her by Strife. Also can break bones by saying the bone names.

D____t

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of something. Even he cannot say what it is for sure, but the closest approximation is the concept of willing things into existence via imagination or maybe even a total freedom of will (without natural restraint).
  • Big Bad: Of Bright Eyes' Gaiden story, at the end of which he tries to absorb her soul and potential concept in order to recreate himself.
  • Big Brother Instinct: A good explanation for the wistfulness of his younger siblings and his death.
  • Break Them by Talking: Nearly succeeds in doing this to Bright Eyes by posing as her Enemy Within and claiming that deep down she wanted the disaster to happen. Fortunately, the love of her friends and family was enough for her to see through his lies and defeat him.
  • Calling the Old Lady Out: Talked back to his mother, Entropy, presumably about one of the many things she hates. It was actually due to trying to convince her to go to open war with the alicorns.
  • Came Back Wrong: His Shadow of Existence, unlike most, seemed completely sentient and aware of who he used to be (perhaps due to his being a Concept), but also seemed to lack the intrinsic qualities of his true self (though the real one wasn't exactly a good person) and seemed completely Ax-Crazy. Of note, the real one seems to have been a Cool Big Bro to his family, while the Shadow considers himself the only sane being in existence.
  • Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Essentially his Concept.
  • Cool Big Bro: Was the eldest son of Havoc and Entropy, and seems to be sincerely missed by all his younger brothers and sisters, even his father Havoc seems to miss him and is still upset Entropy erased him.
    • Although to some degree, Strife realized that he was not really a good Draconequi.
  • Deader Than Dead: Entropy erased him from existence. And then Bright Eyes destroyed his shadow of existence.
  • Dying Curse: Promises Bright Eyes as she kills him that no matter how many generations it takes, he will devour her and become a real concept again. Subverted in that she proceeds to destroy him completely moments later.
  • Evil Weapon: A sword of moths in Bright Eyes's head to fight one of butterflies.
  • Foil: To Morning Star. Both of them sought to seek dominance over reality. D___t wanted to do so by abolishing Nature's Law. Morning Star wanted to take control of the existing structures and rule over it all. Fitting, considering their goals are almost parallel to how Discord and Grogar viewed each other in the Dark World timeline in wanting absolute order or chaos.
    • Also one to Nightmare Paradox. Both wanted to influence another living being to become what they wanted to be, and both have some degree of hatred for the gods and how the world is.
  • Grand Theft Me: Tried to absorb Bright Eyes' soul and its potential concept (which eventually led to Fluttershy becoming Princess Gaia) so that he could use it to reconstitute himself. She defeats him in a Battle in the Center of the Mind.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: Bright Eyes finishes his Shadow of Existence off before he can complete his Dying Curse.
  • Kill the God: A deconstruction. He desired to do this, but if he had it'd have irreparably wrecked the universe, as killing a Concept ALSO destroys what they represent.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: He was a draconequus after all. But what animals made up his body will probably never be revealed. All we know is one of his arms was a canine of some sort.
  • Non-Linear Character: Before he was erased, as he WAS a Concept.
  • Posthumous Character: Was killed by his mother for calling her out before Generation Transitions. All the information about him comes from Discord and his other siblings occasionally reminiscing about him. And then his Shadow showed up in Bright Eyes's chapter.
  • Physical God
  • Reality Warper: Was one himself, naturally, but his Concept essentially allowed mortals some measure of this. His goal was to turn all mortals into this.
  • The Unfavorite: It takes a certain amount of disfavor to have your mother murder you, while your father does nothing but remain complicit with the justification, "Children should never talk back to their elders." Though considering Havoc's personality, it's difficult to tell if he's just being himself or if he genuinely feels that way. According to Word of God, Havoc does sincerely miss him and has never forgiven Entropy for erasing him.
    • When D__t's Shadow of Existence was destroyed, Havoc cried.
  • Un-Person: He was not quite Ret Gone since his siblings still remember him, so their mother enforces the notion that he never existed. They never say his name nor his gender within an earshot of her, just underscores.
  • Villain Of Another Story: He actually wanted to destroy all the alicorns in order to abolish Nature's Law. And he got erased for his proposition. Then he arose to become the Big Bad of Bright Eyes's last journey.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: His desire to destroy Nature's Law was out of a desire to give mortals complete freedom, but as Strife and Bright Eyes point out, this was not a good idea and likely would've caused an even worse version of what destroyed G3.
  • White Sheep: Subverted. Initial impressions give that he spoke back to Entropy because she treated everything with such contempt. However, the real reason was because, he wanted to kill all the alicorns so that a freedom to mold reality as one sees fit would be totally achieved.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: According to Word of God, he saw himself as living in a universe were the gods making laws to govern reality was enslaving mortals (specifically one akin Shin Megami Tensei, mistaking the Father for YHVA), rather than one where those laws were in place to allow life to exist and prevent the universe from collapsing.

Odyne/Cruelty/Dark World!Fluttercruel

See "Epilogue Timeline-Heroes" for details.

Other

Dragon Queen Tiamat

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Normal fully grown dragons in the My Little Pony world are Kaiju, Tiamat is their queen. The Hooviets and much earlier the Centaurs found out the hard way why.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Is surprisingly civil for a Dragon Goddess, to the point she and Celestia have polite conversation over tea during diplomatic visits. She also loves each and every dragon alive as if they are her children. The one time we see her get pissed off? She goes on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge that decimates the entire Hooviet Empire and ends up leaving the southern half of the empire a smoldering ruin. Tiamat might be civil, but she's not a deity to buck with.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: Despite being capable of destroying an entire army singlehandedly, she's still a mother goddess and can be tender and kind. Just don't hurt her kids.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Singlehandedly dished one out to the entire Hooviet army.
    • A thousand of the Centaur Empire's best didn't fair much better.
  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: Despite... well, everything else in this entry, she's apparently pretty civil when not enraged, as she and Celestia apparently have polite conversation over tea when Celestia comes for diplomatic missions. Shining Armor wonders where they a tea cup big enough for her (and that much tea, for that matter).
  • The Ghost: Has been referred to by Shining Armor and mentioned in both the Dark World Arc and an alternate universe, but never seen.
    • Finally shows up in Celestia's side story.
  • Good Parent: Loves her children (all of dragon kind), and sent Bahamut to go and check on all of them individually after the G2 Apocalypse.
  • Happily Married: To Bahamut.
  • Kaiju: Even by dragon standards, she's gigantic. Her rampage against the Hooviets is described as putting a giant monster film to shame.
  • Large and In Charge: When standing at her full height, she blots out the sun.
  • Mama Bear: Her actual hoard is relatively small, despite her being the largest and most powerful dragon alive, as well as their queen. This is because she considers her true treasure all of dragonkind. The Hooviets tried to take some of her subjects' territory from them. Tiamat declared war and when her subjects began to fall in battle, she came herself and stopped (willingly) just short of leaving their capital a blazing crater, demanding a king's ransom for every dragon killed in the war.
  • Multiple Head Case: Has five heads, each of which has their own mind. They never fight, however.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: The Mother of All Dragons.
  • One Dragon Army: The Dragons were thinking of giving up the war against the Hooviets due to losses... Tiamat entered the fray and curbstompped the entire Hooviet military singlehandedly.
    • The Centaur Empire sent one thousand of their best assassins to kill her. She returned their skulls and armor. Note, the Centaurs had practically made dragon killing a sport at the time.
  • Physical Goddess: Her title full title is Goddess-Queen Tiamat and she's more than powerful enough to back up that claim. Celestia and Luna are the only beings to have ever earned her respect, and Celestia says that Havoc and Entropy are the only beings she actually fears.
    • Nightmare Banneret, Spike's Nightmare is said to resemble her and according to Word of God would become a Dragon God instead of an Alicorn if he were purified by the Elements of Harmony, implying she's an actual god.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Against the Hooviet Empire after they stole her subjects' territory and killed many of them in a war. The country's military is decimated and half the country lay in ruin by the time she's done.
    • She and her mate do another one when Makarov's endgame murders several thousand of her children.
  • The Royal We: Played With. She refers to herself in plural, but it's never made clear if she's doing this or refering to her five heads.
  • Shoot the Dog: Admits that if it weren't for her treaty with Celestia, she'd have eaten Minuette to prevent the Master from ever getting loose. Minuette doesn't blame her.
  • Time Abyss: Was present during the Second Age, as she's mentioned in Bahamut's appearance. This makes her at the very least over four thousand years old and one of the oldest living beings on the planet. It's revealed that she and Bahamut first became known during the time of the Centaurs, meaning she predates Ponyland and Pony Kind as a sapient species.

Bahamut

  • Accidental Hero: Ended up saving Clover from Fluffy the Terrible, sending the latter falling to his death, but was just stopping for a rest and happened to land in the right spot. He honestly didn't even know what happened and still might not.
  • Amnesiac God: Implied by Luna to be possible.
  • Blow You Away: Shows this ability when on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge with his mate over Makarov's attempted dragon genocide.
  • Good Parent: After the G2 apocalypse, he went to check on every dragon in the world to make sure they were alright and got to know them individually.
  • Happily Married: To Queen Tiamat.
  • Large and In Charge: Tiamat's mate and, while not as massive as her, still gigantic even by Dragon standards.
  • Papa Wolf: Is just as protective of his children as Queen Tiamat.
  • Physical God: Another Dragon God like Tiamat.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Accompanies his mate on one after Makarov attempts genocide on the dragons.
  • Shrouded in Myth: Even in modern day, ponies seem to know less about him than they do about Tiamat.
  • Super Speed: Implied by his exit after accidentally saving Clover from Fluffy the Terrible.
  • Time Abyss: Was around during the Second Age, meaning he's older than the current civilizations and even Celestia, Luna, and Discord's mortal forms. It's revealed during Tirek's origin story that he predates Ponyland and Ponies being sapient.

Cupid

Mother Deer

  • Actual Pacifist: From the looks of it. She clearly detests just leading military action against her own kind and is never shown taking part in actual combat.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Is implied to be filling in for Gaia (who didn't exist yet) as Concept of the Natural World and Organic Life, but her words and Word of God imply she's a deity in her own right (later revealed to be the Deer's Mother Goddess) and was merely 'subbing' for her.
  • Badass Pacifist: She never actually fights, but manages to get a capture Hooviet Rhino Tank's crew to pull a Heel-Face Turn by having a good talk with them.
  • Big Good: For the Anti-Hooviet Rebels (and by extension their ally Shining Armor) in the Shining Armor Arc. Apparently becomes the ruler of Roedina after Makarov's demise.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saved Bright Eyes from a pack of Coyotes.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in Bright Eyes' chapter of 7 Dreams/Nightmares Gaiden before appearing properly in the Shining Armor Arc.
  • Fertile Hooves: Bright Eyes notices flowers growing where she steps.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Loves all life and teaches Bright Eyes the beauty of nature after saving her life.
  • Mind over Matter: Demonstrates this.
  • No Name Given: Is unknown in her first appearance, but is later revealed to be named Mother Deer.
  • Physical Goddess: Is to the Deer what Tiamat is to the Dragons.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Was present in the Second Age, meaning she predates Equestria's founding by several hundred years at least. She doesn't look it.
  • Time Abyss: While all Gods are this, she's been on the pony world since at least the Second Age, making her among the oldest beings currently alive.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: While the details are unknown, her words imply the Hooviets imprisoned her until she escaped.

Nyarlathotrot

  • Archenemy: Seems to be one with Amicitia.
  • Author Avatar: Implied somewhat, he depicts himself as the outlet of the Shadows Who Make's dark side when talking to Amicitia.
  • Balance Between Good and Evil: Gives Amicitia this argument about why he's needed. She didn't care. It's later revealed his sibling Fillimon is the good to his evil.
  • Bigger Bad: With how he's described, he could be seen as this to every Dark Fic ever written.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Fillimon's Abel.
  • Chess with Death: In order to stop him from tampering with her affairs, Amicitia arranged for him to have a cooking duel with Celestia. He lost...despite the fact he cheated.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Given his name and that he's one of Discord's cousins, this goes without saying. The brief description of him in the "Amictia's Lightly Visits to Grim Dark Worlds" depicts him as having tentacles.
  • God of Evil: Considering Amicitia stated he ruled over the Grim Dark worlds she saved and if Word of God is to be believed creates such worlds, he definitely qualifies.
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: His battle with Amicitia over the world of The Immortal Game has him do this and try to lead that world down a worse path. It's unclear if this is something she did often or not.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Can't be much more opposite than literally representing polar opposite concepts.
  • Villain of Another Story: Seems to have been Amicitia's {Archenemy, but we only see one real confrontation between the two that Amicitia ultimately won. Until the Finale Arc that is.

Fillimon

  • Animal Motifs: Wears a butterfly mask and turns into a swarm of them to teleport.
  • Author Avatar: Benevolent version. She's Nytholotrot's opposite, and thus represents the Shadow's Light Side.
  • Balance Between Good and Evil: Describes herself as the good to her sibling's evil, though unlike him she seems to believe good is stronger than evil.
  • Big Good: As the personification of the Shadow's Who Make's good qualities, she seems to fit this.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Nytholotrot's Cain.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Is Nytholotrot's sibling, so is likely a benevolent version of this trope.
  • God of Good: Is Nytholotrot's opposite.
  • Good Counterpart: To Nytholotrot.
  • Rousseau Was Right: Seems to believe in this, as she states that most of the Shadows are benevolent.
    Fillimon: That is the secret of the Shadows Who Make, Rainbow Dash. Some do sow destruction and suffering...but most wish to sow goodness and light. They wish to allow friends to grow, ponies to be inspired, and 'villains' to find redemption the right way. Heroes are allowed to be beacons of hope and villains are allowed to have long buried hearts that can be dug back up. This is the light I exist to foster to dark the dark my brother sows, the good to his evil. And the light will always be stronger than the dark.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Can't get much more opposite than representing polar opposite concepts.
