Most [[Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse Lunaverse]] main characters are basically based on [[AscendedExtra background]] [[MemeticBystander ponies]] and [[EnsembleDarkhorse one-shot/supporting characters]] from [[Characters/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the original series]], with canon!main characters appearing in minor roles. However, the [[AlternateUniverseFic world building]] has fleshed many of them out in different direction from the original show, while still retaining some personality tropes.

Character page is still in progress, as new tropes are added along the characters gaining screen time, and may include accidental/non-marked spoilers.

%%%Trixie comes first, and after that, names are sorted alphabetically.
[[caption-width-right:268: The [[AlternateUniverse "new"]] [[AscendedExtra Mane]] [[AdaptationalBadass Six]].[[note]]Clockwise from upper left: [[TeamMom Ditzy Doo]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Trixie Lulamoon]], [[AFriendInNeed Carrot Top]], [[TheReliableOne Lyra Heartstrings]], [[TheStoic Raindrops]] and [[CoolTeacher Cheerilee]].[[/note]]]]

* AdaptationalBadass: Lifted from background and minor characters into heroes.
* AuthorityInNameOnly: Their distinction as the Elements of Harmony doesn't give them much political clout.
* BadassNormal: Compared to the Mane Six ([[ChildProdigy Twilight]] [[SuperPowerLottery Sparkle]], [[LightningBruiser Rainbow Dash]] and [[ToonPhysics Pinkie Pie]] most of all), most of the Luna Six are relatively normal ponies who are the Elements of Harmony.
* TheDeterminator: None of them, not even the languid Trixie, are quitters.
* FireForgedFriends: While most of them were at least familiar with each other beforehand, it was the shared adventure against Corona that truly brought them together.
* [[FiveManBand Five Mare Band]]: Although the divide isn't clean and there is significant overlap depending upon the situation.
** Trixie is TheLancer. Oddly for a lancer, she's also TheHero.
** Lyra is a variation on both [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Mare]] (she's "the bard" and knows a lot about magical theory) and [[TheBigGuy The Big Mare]] (when spellcasting)
** Raindrops is [[TheBigGuy The Big Mare]] (physically).
** Ditzy Doo is TheChick, as well as TeamMom.
** Carrot Top is TheChick while doing some time as [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Mare]].
** Cheerilee is TheLeader, though she also doubles as [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Mare]].

!!Trixie Lulamoon
!!![[ Profile]]

[[caption-width-right:300:Watch in awe!]]

The Element of Magic, the personal student of Princess Luna an the representative of her Night Court to Ponyville. Trixie is extroverted, but abrasive; outgoing, yet insecure. She is talented and knows it, and she wants everypony else to know it as well. She can be difficult to get along with at the best of times, but now that she has true friends, she is determined to keep them.

* AccentRelapse: Returns to a French Creole accent (she was raised in Neigh Orleans) when she gets drunk.
* AllergicToRoutine: In "Up and Automaton", she reveals that she's become so used to the chaos Ponyville goes through on a regular basis that she's actually enganging in a game of ''stealth hug'' with Pinkie to keep from going mad with boredom during a surprisingly uneventful week.
* AwesomeButImpractical: Her flying carpet, which in addition to not being all that fast, is also difficult to use and power.
* BadBoss: She has a habit of being unintentionally inconsiderate, abusive, and condescending to those under her employ. After her encounter with Zizanie, she sought to subvert this trope with Pokey to incredibly mixed success.
* TheBigEasy: Is originally from [[UsefulNotes/NewOrleans Neigh Orleans]].
* BigEgoHiddenDepths
* BizarreTasteInFood: Big time.
* BookDumb: Mild example. She's rather well-read in politics and history as a Luna's student, but not so much in magical theory.
* BrilliantButLazy: A capable sorceress, but entirely unwilling to learn new spells unless she absolutely has to.
* ButtMonkey: Horrible things happen to her on a regular basis. In fairness, some of it is deserved.
* BystanderSyndrome: Suffers from this during the first few episodes by virtue of not being all that heroic.
* CargoShip: Has shades of this In-Universe with Monsieur Bourbon.
* {{CelibateHero}}/{{Asexuality}}: [[CrowningMomentOfFunny One scene]] in ''Helping... Hands?'' implies her to be a virgin, and indeed she seems to be unnerved by the sex in general:
** [[spoiler: In ''The Night After,'' she is disturbed when she (and most of the neighbors, in all likelihood) hears Bon Bon and Lyra going at it; a few weeks later, in ''Helping...Hands?'', she is still embarrassed by the experience.]]
** [[spoiler: In ''A Hard Bargain,'' Cheerilee's off-hand comments about the "fun" her parents used to have make Trixie squirm.]]
** This gets actually discussed in ''Tales of Ponyville'', where Cheerilee mistakes Trixie's celibate tendencies for being a ChasteHero [[spoiler: and [[HilarityEnsues decides to give her]] TheTalk]].
** Also, WordOfGod is that she's most likely asexual, though not adverse to forming close Platonic relationships.
* CharacterDevelopment: Before the events of ''Longest Night, Longest Day'', and for a good chunk of that story as well, Trixie really ''wanted'' to be a corrupt, scheming manipulator in the Night Court. She just wasn't very good at it. Her friendship with the other Elements of Harmony has changed her dramatically for the better over the course of several months, though ''At the Grand Galloping Gala'' reminds us that there are many nobles in Canterlot who still vividly remember her as an egotistical, politically clumsy {{Jerkass}}.
* ConspiracyTheorist: For Trixie, unless it's one of the other Elements, there is no gesture that cannot be construed as the product of the machinations of members of the Night Court in a bid to gain control of one or more of the Elements. Fortunately or unfortunately, [[ProperlyParanoid she is frequently right]].
** Also unfortunately, for all her paranoia she doesn't realize [[spoiler:just ''how'' corrupt the Night Court is ''as a whole'']].
* DeadpanSnarker
* [[EmbarrassingMiddleName Embarrassing Second Name]]: she was teased for the name "Lulamoon" as a foal due to the allusions to a song ''Skip to My Lou''.
** FirstNameBasis: ... which is why she prefers Trixie.
* FakeUltimateHero: Examined during "The Hero of Oaton", but ultimately played straight in "Foalish Misadventures" where she (with some lip service to the other Elements of Harmony) takes full credit for curing Ponyville of its enchanted, drunken stupor, failing to mention Dinky or the other foals that made it possible.
* TheHero: A relatively [[AntiHero flawed]] variant.
* HotForTeacher: Has had a few erotic dreams involving Princess Luna in the past, though she's none too proud of them. Princess Cadence figures into them sometimes, but in the Lunaverse [[spoiler:that's pretty much the same thing]].
* INeedAFreakingDrink: Frequently deals with stress by spending quality time with Monsieur Bourbon.
* IToldYouSo: Commissioned a song about this trope that incorporates several languages and is composed of over a dozen verses with the last one purely consisting of haughty laughter.
* InVinoVeritas: When drunk, Trixie becomes more laid-back and sociable, starts speaking in Neigh Orleans accent and [[EmbarrassingMiddleName prefers to be called Lulamoon]]. She tends to treat "Lulamoon" as a separate personality altogether, and isn't fond of the fact that her drunk self is far more likable than she is.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Towards Lyra, in thinking that she's a StarvingArtist.
* {{Invisibility}}: Trixie possesses this spell and used it several times to either sneak around or avoid danger. A second spell also makes her hooves inaudible.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Especially around foals; Trixie seems to make a special effort to be nice to them, especially Dinky Doo.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Much to the consternation of her much nicer and humbler peers.
* LargeHamTitle: The Great and Powerful Trixie, though mostly only during stage shows or when other wise trying to be overly impressive.
** During ''The Hero of Oaton'' she comes up with several more.
* LickedByTheDog: Trixie's fans and friends will argue against attacks toward her character... to a point.
* MagicalAccessory: Trixie is quite adept at making these, though it's not an instant process, frequently taking several hours.
* MagicHat: Used for traditional sleight of hand magic and acts as a magic portal to send her letters directly to Princess Luna's study.
* ManipulativeBitch: and not always too subtle in it.
* MasterOfIllusion
* MissingStepsPlan: There are only two real concrete parts to most of Trixie's plans. The outcome where she will be handsomely rewarded for her brilliance and a beginning so elaborate and daring that it fools both her friends and herself that they won't be winging it all the way to the end.
* NoHeroToHisValet: Dinky and Pokey are her usual assistants, but even though they like her well enough, the two know better than to take what she says at face value. The same can be said for Trixie's other friends.
* PoisonousFriend: Played with due to her less than altruistic mindset tempering the StupidGood tendencies of her friends and coming in handy against the more devious villains of the Lunaverse.
* PowerCopying: Trixie learns spells "by ear"; that is, she learns how to cast spells by watching other ponies casting spells. The downside to this is that she's not very good at learning spells from spellbooks, the normal way.
* PragmaticHero: What she eventually becomes.
* ProperlyParanoid
* SociopathicHero: On her worse days.
* StageMagician: Following in her grandfather's hoofsteps, though it's more of a hobby.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Occasionally, though not as often as her Maneverse counterpart, and mostly only when she's deliberately trying to be dramatic.
* TokenEvilTeammate
* WeakButSkilled: Not overly powerful for having a special talent in magic, but she's creative and fluent caster and fast learner.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: In contrast to canon!Twilight, who can perform a very wide variety of spells, but not very well, Lunaverse!Trixie has a few select spells she can cast very effectively.
* YouNeedToGetLaid

!!Carrot Top
!!! [[ Profile]]

[[caption-width-right:300:Just a simple carrot farmer.]]

The Element of Generosity and a carrot farmer. While hard-working and compassionate friend, her selfless and introvert nature make her a bit too generous in a business sense. As a rather struggling low-scale farmer, she's envious of the Apple clan and their success.

* AccidentalHero: Unintentionally prevents [[spoiler:Zizanie]] from escaping by opening a door.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: She envied the success of Sweet Apple Acres, but is deeply conflicted when [[spoiler:the town turns against the Apples]] during Carrot Top Season.
* TheChick
* {{Envy}}: A little, mainly towards the Apple Family's success and general ease in life.
* ExtremeDoormat
* DeathGlare: Tries to, but can't quite pull this off. Wishes she could, that and EyeBeams
* [[GreenThumb Green Hoof]]: She knows a lot of stuff concerning plants, both tame and wild and even those of the Everfree Forest.
* ShrinkingViolet: Not on Fluttershy-levels, but is somewhat a doormat.
* TakingAdvantageOfGenerosity: She tends to be the victim of this...
** AFriendInNeed: ... but on the other hoof, she's still always there to help anyone who's in trouble, no matter what it takes from her. And most are more than willing to [[AndroclesLion return the favor]].
* UnknownRival: She's not even a blip on the Apple Trust's radar...
** [[spoiler: Until ''The Carrot Top Season'', after which Applejack acknowledges her as a WorthyOpponent. She was even given a chance to [[WeCanRuleTogether join the Trust]].]]

!!! [[ Profile]]

[[caption-width-right:300:Bringing in joy and laughter, both in classroom and life.]]

The optimistic, knowledgeable and responsible school teacher for Ponyville and the Element of Laughter. Needs to get out more. Foalhood friend of Lyra; sister of Berry Punch.

* {{Badass}}: Easily the most {{Badass}} member of the Lunaverse Six.
* BiTheWay: Was once accidentally married to a female roommate, and cheated on her with a stallion, so she's most likely bisexual. She's also been in relationships with both Big Mac and Rarity. [[spoiler:As well as a one-time with Notary (they were drunk, and it was ''before'' she became Greengrass's secretary).]]
** Not to mention a threesome in her past, according to ''Hero of Oaton''.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Slow to anger, but when she does, even [[TheBigGuy Raindrops]] is afraid of getting in her way.
* CoolTeacher
** BadassTeacher
* [[CrazyCatLady Crazy Fish Lady]]: According to the ''Hero of Oaton'', Cheerilee has so many fish that she's long since run out of names and had to switch over to an alpha-numeric system of identification.
** [[KindheartedCatLover Kindhearted Fish Lover]]: She's not really obsessed with her fish to the point total social isolation, but she does seem to be worried about being perceived as such by others.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Heavily vandalizes her own school due to the establishment mandating more inservice days. In her defense, she was magically intoxicated, as were the faculty and PTA members that were cheering her on.
* FormerTeenRebel: ''Tales of Ponyville'' reveals that when she had a ''very'' interesting youth.
** [[HiddenDepths And she picked up lots of useful skills and met many interesting persons]] back in those days.
* GenreSavvy
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: ''Oaton'' makes a point of noting she's not very good at reading ponies.
* TheLeader: Tended to take this role in ''Longest Night, Longest Day,'' usually being the one to come up with plans of action.
* MarriedToTheJob: But wouldn't mind a life outside it.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: ''Scootalong to the Cheer'' not only revealed her relation to Berry Punch, but also what her own full name is: Black''cherry Lee'' Punch.
* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Mare]]
* {{Troll}}: Flirts with Corona to mess with her. It's surprisingly effective.
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: Seriously, she's ''terrifying''.

!!Ditzy Doo
!!! [[ Profile]]

[[caption-width-right:300:Our most popular background pony, now a main character.]]

The Element of Kindness and a ever hard-working mail mare in Ponyville's post office, who knows everypony and wants everypony to get along. Single mother and would fly to the end of the universe for her dear daughter, Dinky Doo.

* AlmightyJanitor: Isn't a post master, but knows every detail in the job well enough to claim the office her own "Castle Doo".
* {{Claustrophobia}}: Not known to do well in enclosed spaces; this causes problems when having to rescue Trixie in "Through the Fire and Flames''.
* EducationMama: The idea of Dinky getting hurt is one thing; the idea of Dinky settling for less because Mommy is a dimwit worried about nothing gets to be quite another.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Whether it's her Element or just her general niceness, animals can't bring themselves to harm Ditzy.
* [[GoodParents Good Parent]]: "Fact: Dinky Doo has the best mother in the world, and Dinky Doo is fully aware of this."
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Was reluctant to accept the Element of Kindness at first [[spoiler: because of her [[MyGreatestFailure teenage affair]] with Sparkler's (and Dinky's) father, which led to a pregnancy and the divorce of Sparkler's parents.]]
* TheKlutz: suffers from [[FishEyes strabismus]], which makes her coordinating and flying difficult.
* MamaBear: Don't even think of hurting her daughter. Otherwise you might just end up being dropped from the sky.
* MyBelovedSmother: In "Exam Jitters", she shows signs of becoming overly protective when an accident she couldn't possibly have foreseen [[AdultFear leaves her so worried about protecting Dinky]] that she lies her ass off about how horrible Manehattan is when Dinky gets the chance to attend an elite school. Cheerilee is not ecstatic.
* NotSoDifferent: The real reason she finds it difficult to forgive Corona for kidnapping Dinky. It took her [[SelectiveObliviousness the longest time to admit it]] but what scares her most about Celestia is that an alicorn with a MamaBear complex who sees all ponies as her children has [[KnightTemplarParent more ability to run riot]] than a mere letter carrier.
* PhotographicMemory
* TeamMom
* TurnTheOtherCheek: She rarely gets angry even if somepony acts like they'd deserve it, instead treating such occasions with motherly patience.
* {{Workaholic}}: She works long, somewhat stressful days, capable and willing to do most tasks in the office... due to the low salary and family to support.

!!Lyra Heartstrings
!!! [[ Profile]]

[[caption-width-right:300:A musical prodigy...]]

The Element of Loyalty, Lyra is a laid-back, easygoing musician and (suitably) utterly devoted friend. In the beginning of the story, she returned to her home town Ponyville with Trixie after studying three years in Canterlot, [[LongDistanceRelationship reuniting with her longtime marefriend BonBon]].

* BrilliantButLazy: While patient and thorough in what she does, she can be also carefree and has some problems with deadlines. She also seems to be stronger than Trixie in terms of raw magic power.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: with [=BonBon=].
* [[HasTwoMommies Has Two Daddies]]: As shown in ''Dinner with the Folks''.
* LethalChef: The reason why [=BonBon=] cooks for both of them.
* MagicMusic: she's a professional musician, and has studied magic in Luna's school for Gifted Unicorns.
** ''Secret of Andalantis'' also mentions spellsongs, aka. ''literal magic music'', as her specialty in spellcasting.
* PowerOfTrust: she inspires Octavia to overpower Blueblood's mercenaries, even though she's a mile away. Octavia knows that Lyra would have faith in her, and that's all she needs.
* TheReliableOne: as the element suggests, she's more or less everypony's friend.
* [[spoiler: TakingTheBullet: She takes one for Cheerilee in ''Longest Night, Longest Day''. Luckily, it proves her to be the Element of Loyalty, and she's fine.]]
* WaitingForABreak: Implied, when Trixie tends to think her as a StarvingArtist (especially in earlier stories) and invokes this trope to get her to do favors. Eventually subverted as Lyra ''does'' make a living with her music.

!!![[ Profile]]

[[caption-width-right:300:You do '''not''' want to make her angry.]]

The Element of Honesty, Raindrops can come across as stable and slightly dull. She's a member of Ponyville's weather patrol, and takes her job very seriously, though she also enjoys it thoroughly.
* [[TheBigGuy The Big Mare]]
* BruiserWithASoftCenter: She is a closet romantic, big time.
* BrutalHonesty
* DeadpanSnarker
* {{Determinator}}
* HappyRain: She loves playing in the rain.
* MightyGlacier: Slow and clumsy for a pegasus, but stronger than many earth ponies.
* NeverLiveItDown: [[invoked]] The one time she really lost it and assaulted somepony in anger led to broken bones, hospitalization and a restraining order. She had to live with the reputation until her family moved away from Cloudsdale, but she still regrets it.
* SerialKillerKiller: Sorely tempted to become this in 'Just Us Little Ponies'. [[spoiler: Fortunately, Cheerilee, Max, and Duty talk her down.]]
* SuppressedRage: Due to what happened in the past, she does her best to control her temper.
* TheStoic: But she [[NotSoStoic has]] [[SuppressedRage her]] [[RageBreakingPoint limits]].

[[folder:Ponyville: Friends, Family, and Associates of the Lunaverse Six]]
%%%Names should be sorted alphabetically.

!!Amethyst Star, "Sparkler"
!!!Unicorn. Jeweler. Prefers the nickname "Sparkler" amongst those she likes. Dinky's half-sister on their father's side.
* BrokenBird: victim in her parents' messy divorce
* FireForgedFriends: [[spoiler: In a sense, with Dinky Doo, her half-sister. The two are both innocent victims of a scandal involving their parents, and the shared pain - and opening up to each other - seems to have brought them closer together]]
* FriendlyAddressPrivileges: Only her friends call her Sparkler. [[spoiler: Which works as a sign of warming terms between her and Ditzy, when Ditzy calls her that. It's still on a bit uncomfortable territory, however.]]
* InSeriesNickname

!!Berry Punch
!!!Earth pony, Cheerilee's sister. Owns a soda shop and bar. Is also something of a social alcoholic.
* TheAlcoholic: A mild example. She's fine normally, but she tends to lose control at parties.
* TheMentor: To Carrot Top, for the farm competition. As she explains, Carrot Top can farm, but Berry Punch knows how to put dishes together.
* PopularityPower: Applejack paid bitterly for [[spoiler: publicly insulting Berry's profession]], as Berry is the town's most popular party animal right along Pinkie.

!!Bon Bon
!!!Earth pony. A confectioner and Lyra's marefriend.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: While usually nice pony, she can be pretty temperamental when stressed enough. She's also rather protective of Lyra. [[spoiler: "''Helping... Hands?''" turns out to be a ''[[SanitySlippage very]]'' [[SanitySlippage bad day for her]].]]
* GenreSavvy: Without either of them explaining it to her, she quickly ascertains Trixie and Lyra's plan to perform at the concert despite [[spoiler:the latter still being stuck as a human]]. Undaunted, she [[spoiler:tries to strangle Trixie anyway]].
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Known each other since childhood, hooked up as teenagers.

!!Dinky Doo
!!!Unicorn, Ditzy Doo's daughter. School-age filly who is wise for her years, but also still fundamentally a kid. Works at Fluttershy's on weekends.
* CheerfulChild
* TheCutie
* [[spoiler:FutureBadass]]: In the questionably canon story, "I'll See You Soon". [[spoiler:She's been mentored by both Trixie and Twilight and seems to have the raw power of Twilight coupled with the innate understanding of magic possessed by Trixie, as evidenced by her casually traveling back in time to ask for ''marriage advice.'' She's also apparently close friends with Princess Celestia. No, you read that right.]]
* KidSidekick: Trixie's little assistant in her stage magic shows.
* TheLeader: Type II[=/=]IV hybrid among the "Foal 6" in ''Foalish Misadventures'', charismatic enough to get the aid of children who otherwise wouldn't have anything to do with one another, and levelheaded enough to identify the problem and keep them on task.
* MagneticHero: Able to befriend virtually everyone she meets.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Played for laughs during "Foalish Misadventures" as every time she tries to evoke this trope, the other foals make mention of certain incidents where they worked together to accomplish things and failed anyway. She changes her tune a bit and says that friendship can make almost anything possible.
* [[WiseBeyondTheirYears Wise Beyond Her Years]]: Dinky's no genius, but she's really mature for her age.

!!!Pegasus. Animal caretaker, extreme introvert, but friends with Ditzy, Dinky, and Rainbow Dash. Real name Fluttering Posey.
* BrokenBird: Just as in the Mane Six's world, Flight School was a never-ending source of torment and misery for the poor dear. Based on her terror that her CrashIntoHello with Thunderlane will lead to another round of mockery despite his probably thinking that she's an unusually shy tourist, she still bears the scars.
* CharacterDevelopment: [[spoiler:Eventually grows more comfortable around Carrot Top after CT gives her the antidote for Poison Joke. Later, in ''Tales of Ponyville'', she not only allows herself to be taken out to the spa, but starts to develop a friendship with Rarity without the aid of one of her existing friends. And in Season 2 in ''A Concert For Ponyville'' gathers the courage to perform in the concert with her birds and Octavia.]]
* FriendToAllLivingThings[=/=]NiceGuy: Implied in ''Return of Tambelon'' to be just as kind as her canon counterpart.
* TheObiWan: It's implied in ''Return of Tambelon'' that she helped teach Ditzy Doo how to be kind.
* SecretlyWealthy: Daughter of a rich and influential industrialist family, who chose to live quietly on ground as a animal caretaker. Her parents support her financially.
* ShrinkingViolet: UpToEleven. RDD designed her "basically the same, but without Flutterbitch", thus lacking all of her [[HiddenDepths canon assertiveness]]. She's now practically devoid of all social interaction except Ditzy, Dinky and Rainbow Dash.

!!Pokey Pierce
!!!Unicorn. Trixie's secretary/assistant. He shall pierce the Heavens with his horn!
* {{Determinator}}: His special talent is [[AllThereInTheManual noted]] to be perseverance.
* HypercompetentSidekick / CrazyPrepared: He's very good at his job, and always carry copies of every legal form from the disaster relief book. With Corona on the loose, Trixie in charge, and Ponyville being... Ponyville, they get a lot of use.
* IncrediblyLamePun: He's always willing to take a stab at one.
* LargeHam: When not snarking or throwing puns, he tends to quote [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]]. You can guess the rest.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: His special unicorn magic is a horn sharpening spell, which helps him to pierce through things. Thus far he's used it to [[ShootOutTheLock open a locked door]]. [[spoiler: PlayedForLaughs when he only [[AntiClimax ends up]] [[EpicFail stuck himself]].]]
* ServileSnarker: Part of his resumé when taking a job working under [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Trixie]].
--> '''Pokey''': ''If you become too much, I’ll be ready to bring you back down with a … [[IncrediblyLamePun piercing remark]].''
* ShoutOut: If not obvious yet, Pokey's characteristics have many to GurrenLagann, with determination, quoting and the horn as an allusion to a drill.

!!!Unicorn. Raindrop's little brother. Idolizes Trixie due to her magic shows.
* {{Adorkable}}: The way he looks up to his big sister in ''Griffin Over The Line'' is just precious.
* BugCatching: His primary hobby.
* FriendToBugs: To astounding levels. And anything small and wriggly, really. At one point, he even managed to charm a tarantula.
* GeniusDitz: While appearing kinda daft, Snails has shown a surprising knowledge of botany and other wildlife. Justified as he spends a lot time in the woods, and Raindrops has made sure he knows about dangerous and/or poisonous plants and animals.
* {{Gonk}}
* HeroWorshipper
* HotForTeacher: Openly admits to finding Trixie hot, though that was before she tutored him.
* NightmareFetishist: He'd love to flood his whole home with bugs and he dreams of making them even bigger.

!!!Earth pony, and Bonbon's sister. Has a speech impediment.


[[folder:Ponyville: Other Adults]]
%%%Names should be sorted alphabetically. Entries with multiple names should be sorted by the first name of the group, alphabetically. E.g., "Daisy, Lily, and Rose' should be sorted under 'Daisy.'

!!!Earth pony. Local head of the Apple Trust corporation. Deeply concerned about the well-being of her enterprise.
* CoolBigSis: Tries to be one for Applebloom. [[spoiler: It doesn't always work out so well, as seen in ''Carrot Top Season''.]]
* InTheBlood: It's implied in "Carrot Top Season" that Applejack's MoralMyopia tendencies aren't unique to her - it appears that many other members of the Apple Trust have them as well.
* LonelyAtTheTop: her relentless work for securing the Trust's productivity has left her isolated from the community, who view her greedy and selfish.
* MoralMyopia. Honestly seems to believe that Sweet Apple Acres is vital to the town's future. This leads her to believe that anyone who wants to compete with her wants ponies to starve to death.
* SkewedPriorities: The reason that that's nuts is because it makes her look like an elephant screaming about the peril that a mouse represents.
* ShroudedInMyth: The reason that she cannot see that is that she's based her whole life on a family legend on how the Apples saved Equestria centuries ago. The legend's accuracy is debatable; its effect of her isn't.
** {{Irony}}: According to the real legend (at least as far as Granny Smith claims), Equestria was saved by the farms banding together and helping each other out. Which is exactly what Carrot Top and the other small farms are doing now, and what Applejack is so opposed to.
* ThickerThanWater

!!Big Macintosh
!!! Earth pony, Applejack's big brother. A strong, stoic stallion of few words and a good heart.
* GentleGiant: Is pointed by Applejack to be too soft to be the head of the Trust.
* HiddenDepths: He has a bounty hunter license. [[BadAss And he doesn't have it just for bragging rights]].
** He also speaks Caballerian ([[FantasyCounterpartCulture i.e. Spanish]]).
* TheyFightCrime: With [[TheLancer Caramel]].
* TheQuietOne
* The WorfEffect: Suffers this in ''Up and Automaton''.

!!!Pegasus. Makes perfume and other scented products, runs a shop in town.

!!!Earth Pony and Big Macintosh's friend who works in Sweet Apple Acres.
* TheKlutz: [[ObfuscatingStupidity acts the role]] in ''A Hard Bargain'' [[spoiler: to get information of Parley's suspicious-looking thugs]].
* {{TheLancer}}/{{Sidekick}}: in his and Bic Mac's AdventureDuo.

!!Carrot Cake and Cup Cake
!!!Earth ponies. Married couple who own a bakery and employ Pinkie Pie.

!!Cloud Kicker
!!!Pegasus, nominal assistant weather manager, second to Rainbow Dash. Does not take pressure well.
* NumberTwo

!!!Earth pony. Surfer. Which makes one question why he's in Ponyville, as the entire province it's in is land-locked.
* SurferDude
* TotallyRadical

!!Daisy, Lily, and Rose (the flower trio)
!!! Three melodramatic earth pony friends who run a flower business together.
* ComicalOverreacting
* [[DramaQueen Drama Queens]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners: They're so close together that many mistakenly think they are sisters.
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Three Mares]]

!!!Pegasus. Her special talent is napping.
* {{Sleepyhead}}
* TheDitz

!!Filthy Rich
!!!Earth pony, Diamond Tiara's father. Rich business pony.

!! Granny Smith.
!!!Earth Pony. Grandmother of Applejack, Big Macintosh and Apple Bloom.
* CoolOldLady
* IsThatWhatHeToldYou: She tells Carrot Top how the Apples really 'saved' the kingdom. Instead of Applejack's version of how the Apples saved the country due to overwhelming strength, the Apple Trust started out as a small farm that had gotten its neighbors to band together in a time of crisis.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Implied. In the above-mentioned scene Carrot Top also wonders that Granny Smith told the story as if she had been there herself... hundreds of years ago. Downplayed mildly in that she actually looks like an old mare.

!!Heavy Roller
!!!Earth pony, father of Scootaloo. Owner and proprietor of the local Wagon Repair shop.

!!Ivory Scroll
!!!Earth pony. Mayor of Ponyville.
* NoodleIncident: Was once a boxer.

!!Marching Order
!!!Pegasus. Former member of the Royal Guard, he was injured in a skirmish with griffins. His special talent is following orders to the letter.
* LiteralMinded
* NoIndoorVoice

!!Pinkie Pie
!!!Earth pony. Hyperactive party-loving pony who's always ready to throw another party. And another. And another. And...
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Trixie calls her out on her not stopping to do things like finding out what ponies really like or telling them what's going on before bounding off on a sugar-fueled tangent.
* DropTheHammer: Bashes a Cragodile with a Sledgehammer when it threatens Gummy.
* GenkiGirl: Duh.
* RealityEnsues: Since she's not the Element of Laughter in this continuity, and often forgets to take other ponies' wants into account, her behavior tends to come across as bothersome rather than delightful.
* ShipTease: with Prince Blueblood, after the Grand Galloping Gala. It's even inspired a couple romance stories.

!!Rainbow Dash
!!!Pegasus. Weather manager of Ponyville and slacker extraordinaire. Friend of Fluttershy's, constant headache for Raindrops.
* BrilliantButLazy: Excellent weather mare, but doesn't seem to take her job too seriously.
** [[spoiler:Deconstructed in ''Carrot Top Over The Line'', where it's found out that she was put in the weather manager's position by Flutteshy's father, and doesn't feel she even deserves the job.]]
* TheCaretaker: For Fluttershy, as her oldest friend [[spoiler: and under the orders of her father, Thunderous Posey]].
** [[spoiler:AnOfferYouCantRefuse: Posey also made sure to point out that if Rainbow wouldn't take the job, he would force her mother to do it.]]
* JerkAss
** [[spoiler:JerkassWoobie]]
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Diagnosed as a cause of her issues in ''At the Grand Galloping Gala''.
--> '''Raindrops:''' "That buck-all attitude is half the problem with the weather captain we’ve got back in Ponyville. She’s got connections in Cloudsdale, she knows she won’t ever be fired… so it means she can goof off and be lazy whenever she wants."
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Abuses her weather manager position in ''Griffin Over The Line''.
** In ''Tales of Ponyville'', she sees no problem with ruining everypony's day with lots of unscheduled rain if it means Fluttershy can go to the spa without having to deal with passersby.

!!!Unicorn. Fashion designer. Very generous, but potentially hiding a manipulative nature.
* BiTheWay: Still gushes over Blueblood, but dated Cheerilee briefly.
* CutenessProximity: Upon meeting Fluttershy for the first time, she immediately starts gushing over her and making plans to have her model... without getting her consent, or noticing how uncomfortable she's making the shy pegasus.
* GreenEyedMonster: At times shows shades of this over Pinkie being in a relationship with Blueblood.
* [[LesbianVampire LesbianVampony]]: Becomes this in the non canon Costumes fic where a magical mishap turns all into their costumes and she winds up biting Trixie.
* TakingAdvantageOfGenerosity: Played with: while she can still be quite generous herself, she isn't afraid to invert this to make others perform certain favors for her...

!!Red Splasher
!!!Pegasus. Fire chief of Ponyville. He's an older professional firepony who leads a crew of volunteers.

!!Silver Script
!!!Pegasus. Post Master for Ponyville (and therefore Ditzy Doo's boss).
* BadassBystander
* BenevolentBoss
* [[AFatherToHisMen A Father To His Employees]]: And ready to [[PapaWolf love and tolerate the shit out of anypony who threatens his employees.]]
* TheNicknamer: He calls his baseball bat "Love & Tolerance" and his sledge hammer "Gentle Persuasion".

!!Thunder Lane
!!!Pegasus, weather pony, had a fling with Carrot Top, now friend

!!Twilight Sparkle
!!!Unicorn. Magical prodigy of immense power and knowledge. No social skills to speak of (but she is starting to get better). Formerly wanted by the law of Equestria for wrecking the town and currently serving a term of community service as the town's librarian. Shining Armor's little sister.
* AccentuateTheNegative: When trying to explain to Spike why Trixie and the rest of the Luna Six aren't worthy bearers of the Elements, Twilight lists all of their flaws while blanking out on any sort of positive traits they might have.
* AccidentalPublicConfession: In her shock at the climatic events of ''Boast Busted'', she blurts out that she [[spoiler:summoned the Ursa Minor to Ponyville just to get revenge on Trixie]] in front of everypony present. Public opinion promptly turns against her.
* AdaptationalVillainy: The whole Lunaverse basically started with the switch in roles of Trixie and Twilight.
** AntiVillain: Despite the antagonistic role, she's essentially a well-meaning pony who's just misguided by her mechanical worldview and inability to see the other side of the coin.
* [[spoiler: TheAtoner]]: After ''Crisis on two Equestrias''.
* BigBrotherWorship: Her respect for Shining Armor is not only why she selected [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Silverstar]] as her 'superior' element of Harmony, it's why she rejected the idea that some lazy musician could possibly be the Element of Loyalty when someone like BBBFF would be a much better fit.
* BreakTheHaughty: As of her latest appearance (in the Mane Six's world), starting to realize that it could just be that Trixie just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
* BrokenAce: probably the strongest unicorn sorceress in whole Equestria. Is also [[SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining socially inept and has no life outside studying]], and more or less cares only about learning even more magic.
* BrokenPedestal: Was actually looking forward to meeting the bearer of the Element of Magic... until she actually met Trixie.
* [[CantHoldHisLiquor Can't Hold Her Liquor]]: During her official "Welcome to Ponyville" party, Twilight baffled Berry Punch by getting stinko on kiddie cocktails.
* DramaticallyMissingThePoint: Her stated reason for hating Trixie is that the charlatan and her band of thugs failed to do what Luna "clearly" intended them to and banish Corona back into the Sun. Once she does the "right" thing, she's quite confident that Luna will reward her. (To be fair, she's like most Equestrians in that she hasn't the blindest idea that Luna wants to cure Corona of her madness; she just has more ability to make a mess of things trying to save the world.)
* FailedASpotCheck: Without friends to calm her down or ground her in reality, she tends to miss the obvious when it's staring her right in the muzzle.
* FatalFlaw: Cannot -- '''will not''' admit [[ThePerfectionist she could ever be wrong]] about anything, for to acknowledge ''one'' [[FelonyMisdemeanor mistake would open up the potential]] of ''others''. She eventually admits it though.
* FriendlessBackground: This is Twilight if she never went to Ponyville. A socially awkward shut in who never learned the magic of friendship and spent her whole life in the pursuit of knowledge.
* IgnoredEpiphany: During ''Chance Encounter'', she allows as how perhaps she could have handled her meeting with Trixie better for a second or two but dismisses the possibility. It takes until she goes to the Mane Six's world for the realization she'd played her cards atrociously to stick.
* InSpiteOfANail: Despite her original rocky start with the locals, she's the local librarian and, since she's the only pony to smash things to try to make amends, making friends with some of the townsfolk.
* MistakenForRacist: One of the more spectacularly graceless things Trixie did when the two of them first met was provoke Twilight into saying something borderline tribalist; given that she'd later tell Tootsie Flute flat out that Dinky and Snail's blood was not impure merely because they have a Pegasus for a parent despite what her parents told her, this is something Trixie has to live down.
* NoSocialSkills: Like M!Twilight, but UpToEleven.
* NotHelpingYourCase: Really doesn't do herself any favors in ''Boast Busted''.
* TheRival: Views herself as such to Trixie after ''Boast Busted'', eventually [[spoiler:planning on [[StartMyOwn forming her own]] Elements of Harmony to prove her superiority.]]
* TheyJustDontGetIt: Twilight cannot understand how Trixie could be the element of magic when she isn't even more powerful than herself, and admits she can't understand Trixie's explanation that its her connection to her friends that makes her worthy and not how many spells she knows.
** ButForMeItWasTuesday: Played with. [[spoiler: when Twilight finally comes to live in Ponyville, she's convinced everypony there will hate her. Turns out that Ponyville gets attacked by monsters so much, though, that nopony really cares all that much, and the fact that she's actually come back to try and make amends actually puts her a leg-up over some of the other things Ponyville's had to deal with]]
* RealNameAsAnAlias: When recruiting ponies to form her own team (excluding the first), Twilight introduces herself Tenebrosity Scintillation which is a long winded synonym of her real name.
* RonTheDeathEater: [[invoked]] Just how villainous she actually is has been under debate ever since ''Boast Busted''. In-universe, [[spoiler: though the ponies of Ponyville remember what she did with the Ursa Minor, they don't particularly hold it against her given how often this kind of stuff just happens in Ponyville.]]
* SacrificedBasicSkillForAwesomeTraining: She has studied an exceptional variety of spells, unfortunately she completely ignored all social skill along the way.
* ShadowArchetype: Trixie is an extroverted showoff and kind of a jerk, but also [[IJustWantToHaveFriends afraid of being left alone]] and willing to work on her flaws; Twilight is an introvert, reclusive and socially inconsiderate and [[ImNotHereToMakeFriends doesn't think she needs friends]], nor sees her flaws as a problem.
* StartMyOwn: More or less the core of her plan in ''Elements of Insanity''. While that fic is still unfinished, [[spoiler:Twilight later laments in ''Crisis on Two Equestrias'' that it didn't turn out so well, not that such an outcome should be all that surprising.]]
* TechnicianVersusPerformer: The technician to Trixie's performer, particularly in ''Magic Tutor''.
* {{Teleportation}}: Her mastery of this enables her to evade capture and keep running away from her problems and issues rather than facing them.
* TiredOfRunning: Comes to this conclusion at the end of ''Crisis'', [[spoiler:deciding to turn herself in and face the consequences of her actions]].
--> ''"No more running, no more hiding,"'' which seems to have become her new SurvivalMantra.

!!!Earth pony. Window repair pony for Ponyville.
* FirstNameBasis: With Trixie.
--> ''Trixie shook her head, wondering for the hundredth time how she was on a first name basis with the window-repair pony.''
* RecurringExtra: Mostly appears or is mentioned whenever [[RunningGag Trixie's window is broken]].

[[folder:Ponyville: Other Foals]]
%%%Names should be sorted alphabetically.

!!! Pegasus-unicorn hybrid who doesn't like how the other foals think she's a wise princess-to-be and would rather stick to pottery.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: The other foals act like this around her, even though she's pretty sure she's not actually a princess.

!!!Earth pony. Applejack's little sister. Very defensive of her family.
* AdorablyPrecociousChild: Mild example. While she's still child at heart, she has carried the pressure for the Trust's future from a little foal. Applejack wishes [[ChildrenAreInnocent she could grow up without the burden]].
* ThickerThanWater


!!Bee Bop
!!! Pegasus. Friends with Featherweight. Kind of loud.
* NoIndoorVoice: Her mom says she sounds just like a princess.

!!Diamond Tiara
!!!Earth pony. Very rich.
* CannotSpitItOut: Can't admit her feelings to Scootaloo, no matter how hard she tries.
* DaddysGirl: Oh, so much.
--> '''Filthy Rich''': ''“Now, if anypony asks, I spent seven hundred bits on your mother and a hundred and fifty on you, okay, honey?”''
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Jerks Have Standards]]: Is horrified when, Raindrops, in ''Eye of the Hurricane'', makes Snails cry.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Well, not everyone, but Lyra and Bon Bon realize that she has feelings for Scootaloo almost immediately when they come to buy an apology gift for Cheerilee.
* HiddenDepths: Her special talent is accessorizing, and she ''hates'' it when others think that it means that she's only good at wearing jewelry (basically, she knows what goes best on who and such).
** She's a bit nicer than she first appears.
* JerkassFacade: A lot of her behavior is a cover for the fact that she has NoSocialSkills.
* LovableAlphaBitch: Thanks to her occasional PetTheDog moments and SympatheticPOV in ''Scootalong to the Cheer''.
* NoSocialSkills: ''Scootalong to the Cheer'' reveals that most of Diamond Tiara's abrasiveness and hostility is a defensive facade to cover up her insecurity and awkwardness around other ponies. [[{{Tsundere}} Especially Scootaloo]].
* PetTheDog: After confirming several times that Dinky really did earn all those bits by herself with hard work, compliments her on a job well done. (Though she also makes it very clear she doesn't want that being spread around at school, obviously!)
* PuppyLove: Has a '''MASSIVE''' crush on Scootaloo.
* RescueRomance: Was "saved" by Scootaloo from a phony kidnapping some time before Trixie arrived in Ponyville.
* SourSupporter: Tends to fall into this role in stories that group her with other foals.
* SpoiledBrat
* {{Tsundere}}: towards Scootaloo.


* {{PyroManiac}}: Loves fireworks a ''lot''.

!!!Pegasus. Friend of Sweetie Belle and underachiever, at least insofar as school work is concerned.
* BizarreTasteInFood: Uses [[BlazingHellfireInfernoSauce liquid rainbow]] as dip. (As in, the stuff not even canon Pinkie Pie could handle.) Her dad wonders how her digestive system takes it.
* BookDumb: Balances between this and DumbJock.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Ask anypony if she drives ''way'' too fast with her scooter.
* [[FearlessFool Fearless Foal]]: Always comes up with new ideas for crazy ([[HeroOfAnotherStory offscreen]]) stunts or adventures.
* MissingMom: Her mother died a year before the ''Longest Night, Longest Day'' happened.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl/[[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Foals]]: with Sweetie Belle.

!!Silver Spoon
!!!Earth pony. Also very rich.
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Jerks Have Standards]]: Is horrified when Raindrops, in ''Eye of the Hurricane'', makes Snails cry.
* [[YesMan Yes Filly]]

!!!Unicorn. Snails' best friend.
* ItAmusedMe: The reason he starts changing the colors of his classmates' coats and manes at the end of "Magic Tutor". That, and Snails was sick at home.

!!Sweetie Belle
!!!Unicorn, Rarity's little sister, friend of Scootaloo.
* EpicFail: At one point she borrows Scootaloo's scooter and gets stuck in a tree. Not even ''she'' is sure how it happened.
* PrecociousCrush: Has it bad for Cheerilee. [[spoiler: She admits her feelings in ''[[ValentinesDayEpisodes "To Cheerilee, with Love"]]'', but Cheerilee gently turns her down.]]
* [[StraightMan Straight Filly]]
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl/[[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Foals]]: with Scootaloo.

!!Tootsie Flute
!!!Unicorn. Skilled at magic.
* RacistGrandma: Tribalist parents, actually. They believe that pureblood unicorns have stronger magic than unicorns born from mixed-tribe unions (the truth is that unicorns with unicorn parents are simply more likely to pick up magic outside of school).

[[folder:Canterlot: Night Court Royalty and Nobility]]

%%% Sort by noble rank, then alphabetically within rank. The titles of nobles, in descending order of rank, is: Princess, Grand Duke/Grand Duchess, Viceroy/Vicereine, Archduke/Archduchess, Duke/Duchess, Marquess/Marchioness, Count/Countess, Viscount/Viscountess, Baron/Baroness, Baronet/Baronetess, Knight/Dame, Lord/Lady.

* CorruptPolitician: A depressingly large number of them.
* [[spoiler:EngineeredPublicConfession:Gets this pulled on them ''en masse'' due to "Truth is a Scourge".]]
* [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Nobles Who Actually Do Something]]
* UnderestimatingBadassery: They tend to get this from ponies who think they're just paper-pushers. The junior-ranked nobles tend to get this even from other nobles. But most of the nobles we've seen, even the Barons, have proven themselves to be quite powerful when they need to be.
* [[spoiler:ViciousCycle: Luna has seen it become infested by greedy, selfish 'nobles' before. Several times, in fact. Since she's unwilling to risk JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope, she purges it through entirely legal means every few generations, fully aware future members will give into temptation again.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: After [[spoiler:cutting a deal with Zizanie]] and realizing that the corruption is worse than she could have thought, Luna reminds the Night Court that the Mayors of the towns and cities of Equestria could easily form a new, BETTER government than the one that currently exists.

!!Princess Luna Equestris
!!!Alicorn. Ruler of Equestria, shephard of the moon, and caretaker of the sun. Trixie's teacher in the art of magic and politics. Corona's younger sister. Immortal and incredibly powerful.
!!![[ Profile]]

* BerserkButton: Whatever you do, don't screw up performing the 'Symphony for Moon and Sun'.
* DarkIsNotEvil: even if she has a bit dubious reputation.
* [[spoiler: {{Despair Event Horizon}}[=/=]HeroicBSOD: Suffered one after she banished Corona to the Sun, spending the next twelve years in a drunk, depressed rampage neglecting her responsibilities for Equestria. It took years of her to pull herself together and start stabilizing the kingdom from its near collapse.]]
* [[spoiler:DrowningMySorrows: Spent the first twelve years after Corona's banishment WanderingTheEarth as a depressed drunkard.]]
* FatalFlaw: Low self-confidence, primarily because she knows how close she was to becoming the villain if Celestia hadn't done so first. This is why she allows the ViciousCycle of corruption in the Night Court to continue, because she is terrified that she isn't strong enough to avoid JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope. She gets called out on it in ''At the Grand Galloping Gala'':
--> “You’re not scared of being seen as a tyrant, you’re scared of [[HeWhoFightsMonsters becoming one,]] [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre even though you never would.]] You’re so afraid – that you’d rather just let Equestria go through these cycles then risk taking any real action, using any of your power. You’re afraid. All the time, you’re afraid. You’ve become used to it. You’re ''scared of yourself.''”
* TheFettered: Knows full well about the corruption in the Night Court, but steadfastly adheres to the law of the land instead of claiming autocratic power because that is how her sister fell.
* FriendToAllChildren: Trixie mentions that Luna likes children in ''Longest Night, Longest Day''.
* GoodIsNotNice: She can be amazingly harsh and direct when the need requires it. Not to mention destroying the lives of ponies who failed the play the Symphony of the Moon and Sun, regardless of their reasons for playing it.
* GoodIsNotSoft: Her immediate thought when Tirek appears on Tambelon? Try and destroy the entire island.
* INeedAFreakingDrink: Her reaction to dealing with all the wannabe Celestia impostors a scant twenty years after her sister's banishment.
** NailedToTheWagon: Unfortunately, she previously used a pair of Royal Commands to ensure she never overindulges, meaning her retainers are forced to deny her.
* IShouldHaveBeenBetter: She opens the Grand Galloping Gala by personally apologizing to the citizens of Ponyville for letting the Night Court get as out of control as it did.
* LivingForeverIsAwesome: While she is saddened to see friends and acquaintances and even the occasional lover die, Luna accepts that she is immortal and does not regret it. Ponies die and she does not, and that's just how things are. WordOfGod is that this is in fact the default view of alicorns.
* MesACrowd: One of her abilities is to split herself into multiple. Very handy, as it allows her to not only handle multiple meetings or tasks simultaneously, but she can send one of herself out into the world disguised as a mortal pony in order to get a break from the stresses of ruling.
* NotSoDifferent: During her twelve year bender, she displayed several negative traits of her future apprentice, Trixie, including ManipulativeBitch tendencies, a nasty temper when slighted, and a high dependency on alcohol.
* PhysicalGod
* PoliticallyActivePrincess
* [[KingIncognito Princess Incognito]]: Is known to occasionally disguise herself as a mortal pony (or more than one, as in ''Longest Night, Longest Day'') so that she can interact with her subjects as their equal rather than as their ruler.
* Really700YearsOld: Like Corona, she's so old that even she's forgotten her exact age, yet physically she appears young enough that [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Shining Armor thought she looked cute in glasses]] (much to his own consternation).
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Trixie tells her this in ''At the Grand Galloping Gala''.

!!Viceroy Nightlight
!!!Unicorn. Leader of House Starlight. Father to Twilight Sparkle and Shining Armor, and husband of Twilight Velvet.

* BenevolentBoss: Is willing to trust his employees, within reason.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Thanks to what happened to Twilight Sparkle, he apparently wants [[spoiler:all of Ponyville]] to suffer. [[spoiler: Ditzy]] calls him out on it in ''At the Grand Galloping Gala'', using [[spoiler: her own motherhood]] to deflect his ThickerThanWater excuse.
* IrrationalHatred: Of Trixie. She wasn't entirely to blame for Twilight becoming a wanted fugitive, yet he despises her for it all the same.
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Briefly, and aimed directly at Trixie. Otherwise, he tried to be a ReasonableAuthorityFigure (or as close as could be managed inside the Court).
* PapaWolf
* [[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids Silly Trixie, Idealism is For Fillies]]: When Trixie tries to call him out for his DisproportionateRetribution, he just shrugs and makes a pithy comment about how she doesn't understand how the Night Court works.
* SuperOCD: He doesn't much like it when things are out of place. At all.

!!Vicereine Puissance
!!! Pegasus. Leader of House Optiebeurs-Golo. Aging but extremely powerful member of the Night Court. Utterly ruthless in defending her position.

* BadBoss: Will fire employees for minor slip-ups, or not adjusting a budget just the way she wants.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Tries to act like a sweet, loving grandmother towards her great-grandson, Flicker, but the minute he questions her the mask slips.
* TheCollector
** CollectorOfTheStrange: WordOfGod is that she loves to collect rare and valuable things, and ponies too. She's especially fond of pegasus-unicorn hybrids, since they are very rare (only five or in existence at any given time) and they look kind of like alicorns.
** ''Treasure City'' shows that she has at least two pegacorns (including one that looks almost exactly like Celestia), an earthicorn, a descendant of King Sombra (who has his shadow powers), a 4-winged pegasus, a null pony, and a half-pony, half-windigo hybrid.
** She's had seven foals; WordOfGod is that this is a natural extension of her desire to collect.
** ''At the Grand Galloping Gala'' even suggests that she collects ''provinces''. She is the vicereine of both Califurlong and Palomino. For comparison, every other noble we've met has been in charge of only one province.
* ControlFreak: She insists it's her right to name her great-grandson, as opposed to the kid's parents.
* EvilMatriarch: Some of her kids tried to oppose or supplant her. They're all exiled far from Canterlot or worse.
* EvilOldFolks
* {{Greed}}
* ItsAllAboutMe: Puissance seems utterly incapable of understanding any viewpoint that isn't her own, or that anyone could be doing something that isn't about her. Case in point, she believes the Elements of Harmony will (not might) try and separate her from Ice Heart, before they've even met him. And at that point all of them, save Cheerilee, believe she's okay.
* ManipulativeBitch: She finds rare and unique ponies, gives them all they could want or need, all the possible comforts they could ask for, and all they have to do is love her unconditionally.
** She also happens to be a member of several government committees and cabinets, and unofficially controls several more.
* MeaningfulName: In more ways than one. Puissance is a kind of horse competition involving difficult (but limited) jumping stunts. Puissance is also an obscure word meaning 'power'.
** Taken UpToEleven in ''At the Grand Galloping Gala,'' where her full name is revealed to be Puissance Noctilucent Optiebeurs-Golo. Optiebeurs Golo is the name of the horse that currently holds the world record for the puissance jump.
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: Wants this of Luna in ''At the Grand Galloping Gala''. Not out of modesty at all; in fact, she fears being made to look like a fool out of touch with the commoners.
* RichBitch: Insanely, ludicrously rich, and with all the empathy of a rock.
* YesMan: Surrounds herself with these.

!!Vicereine Wallflower
!!!Earth pony. A kind and just Courtier who is responsible for Canterlot province itself.
* MotorMouth
* TheSpymaster: 'Climbing the Mountain' verifies that she does direct the spies of the Royal Diplomatic Corps.

!!Archduke Bobbing Fisher
!!!Unicorn. Another powerful member of the Court. Archduke of Rushia, with particular ties to the industrial city of Stalliongrad.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* DropTheHammer: He's seen wielding a big warhammer in 'Just Us Little Ponies' and 'Climbing the Mountain'. WordOfGod is that he's very skilled with it.
* EvilSoundsDeep: His creator said that he thinks of Fisher sounding similar to Johan Schinkler, a bass singer with a very deep voice.
* FantasticRacism: WordOfGod is that he's a diehard tribalist who is morally offended that non-unicorns have as much power on the Court that they do. In 'Climing the Mountain', he refers to Baron Mounty Max's goat secretary, Mrs. Grobnar, as his ''pet''.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: What he said at the Gala cost him a lot of respect from several members of the Night Court.
* HuskyRusskie: Described as having a build more commonly found on earth ponies.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Condemns Posey for her treatment of Fluttershy, while he's on incredibly shaky grounds with his own wife.
* IrrationalHatred: For Trixie. He sees her as a lazy loafing layabout who squandered the opportunities Luna gave her and is recklessly endangering the nation by refusing to train for the battle with Corona everyone thinks is coming.
* KarmicDeath: Was forced out of his Ministry of War for his abuse of power, and after an entire story (and more) of him excusing every horrible thing he did on the basis that it's for 'the greater good' and is the 'righteous' thing to do, is caught in the middle of a criminal scheme and exposed by an actual righteous pony.
* KnightTemplar
* MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong: Spent four years in Stalliongrad, without any of his House's resources. This helped build him into the strong zealot he is now.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Or at least that's how he tries to justify his actions. In truth his morals are so skewed by his own twisted biases, that his sense of what's "right" has little to no resemble to anything of the sort. In Fisher's mind the prosperity and security of the nation is paramount, even at the expense of freedoms and safety of its citizenry.
* [[SmartPeoplePlayChess Smart Ponies Play Chess]]: WordOfGod is that he's a fantastic player who hates to lose. He's also one of the more clever politicians in the Court.
* TotalitarianUtilitarian

!!Archduchess Nobility
!!!Unknown tribe.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Implied to happen to Captain Lightning, once he gets her to vote a certain way for what turns out to be a bogus reason.

!!Duchess Fragrant Posey
!!!Pegasus. Duchess in the Night Court, related to Fluttershy.

* MamaBear: [[spoiler:Wants to take Trixie to task for 'threatening' Fluttershy and temporarily abducting one of her chickens. The problem is that when Fragrant heard of this, she didn't understand that Trixie barely knew who Fluttershy was, and what she did know made her feel sorry for her.]]
** And during the Gala, Archduke Fisher comes clean with his opinion that Posey should be trying to force Fluttershy into a political position. Posey's good-will towards him disintegrates, and several months later, she's still angry at him.
* MentorShip: With NaiveNewcomer Mounty Max.
* OldShame: In-universe. She once accepted a bribe early in her career and, after Luna's asking if there is one honest pony in the Night Court, has the decency to say "No".
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Read Trixie the riot act for the incidents that flipped her MamaBear switch, but was also willing to give her a little benefit of the doubt when Trixie gave her side of the story and swore that she bore [[spoiler:Fluttershy]] no ill will.
* SexyMentor: Max certainly thinks so.

!!Duke Greengrass
!!![[ Profile]]
!!!Earth pony, Politician. A young and aggressive member of the Night Court.
* AccentuateTheNegative: His special talent of weeding makes him very good at finding ponies' weaknesses. He is lousy at noticing a pony's strengths. His inner monologue about Trixie in ''At the Grand Galloping Gala'' paints her as a seething mass of flaws and vices, copmletely ignoring all of the virtue she has displayed.
* TheBusCameBack: After last being seen running into the night in "At the Grand Galloping Gala", he shows up again in "Just Us Little Ponies".
** BusCrash: Narrowly averted. We find out in JULP that he almost died a few months after the Gala while he was still offscreen, but Max and Greenmeadow were able to rescue him just in time.
* [[CanadaEh Caneighda Eh]]: The Duke's province.
* TheChessmaster: How he apparently works.
* CrazyEnoughToWork
* DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: [[spoiler: (to Luna, as a result of ''Truth is a Scourge'' kicking in) "You useless cow."]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: His father was a pony who continuously placed the welfare of the nation before himself, and spent fifty years doing everything he could for Equestria, and virtually nothing for himself. Not only does Greengrass think he was a loser, but he doesn't understand that his dad was trying to help others, as opposed to simply amassing power for himself. Also, when [[spoiler: Lyra]] confronts him ''At the Grand Galloping Gala'', he expresses the view that he cannot imagine the Element-bearers ''not'' wanting to use their status for political gain.
* {{Expy}}: His profile specifically states that in a lot of ways, he's essentially a pony version of [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} Xanatos]].
* IrrationalHatred: Not for his enemy Trixie, but for traitors in general. He'll fire incompetent employees, but he will ''obliterate'' ones that betray him, even if the betrayal wasn't successful or meaningful.
* ManipulativeBastard
* MassiveMultiplayerScam: At least one of his cons works like this.
* OddFriendship: With the honest and earnest Baron Mounty Max, after Max helped him with the Sun Cult.
* PersonaNonGrata: [[spoiler:Retains his title and seat on the Court after the Gala, but everypony knows that Luna despises him, causing him to lose all of his influence and alliances among the other nobles.]]
* TricksterMentor: Likes to think of himself as being this for Baron Max.
* UndyingLoyalty: His one virtue. While he'll obliterate traitors, he'll go to the ends of the world for his loyal employees.
** When the Sun Cult captures Notary, he embarks on a plan that he thinks will cost him everything--his seat in the Court, his title, even his life--and goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge that annihilates the Canterlot chapter of the cult. By the end of it, their headquarters is in flames and the entire Canterlot chapter of the Sun Cult has been destroyed.
* VillainExitStageLeft: At the end of 'At The Grand Galloping Gala'.
* VisionaryVillain: He wants to control Equestria like his own garden, tending to it and helping it 'grow' into something far greater and more glorious than its current state.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Vanishes near the end of 'At the Grand Galloping Gala'. [[spoiler: he shows up again in 'Just Us Little Ponies']]
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: His special talent is ''weeding''. [[spoiler: As in, [[AttackItsWeakPoint finding objects' weaknesses and exploiting them]] [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower to his advantage, if not outright disposing]] them.]]
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Actually gets a bit of this in ''Climbing the Mountain'' when Baron Max is trying to convince him to join the group of nobles who are working to find a way to improve the Night Court. Max finds out about his VisionaryVillain status and argues that since his goal, self-serving as it is, involves Equestria being better for everypony else as well, he can't be ''all'' bad.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Subverted. InUniverse, Trixie thinks this of him, but it turns out not to be true.
** In fact, his reaction to Notary being captured by the Sun Cult is to launch a massive scheme which involves him ''letting himself be abducted by the Cult'' in order to infiltrate their organization, blow up their weapons stores, and utterly annihilate the Canterlot chapter.

!!Duke Sands
!!!Unknown tribe. Plays chess with Fragrant Posey.

!!Marquis De Salade
* IncrediblyLamePun: All we know about him is that his name is a pun on the MarquisDeSade.

!!(The former) Count Greenmeadow
!!!Greengrass's father. Now retired. Not thrilled about the direction his son took with his life.

* GrumpyOldMan
* PercussiveMaintenance: Is willing to give Max advice about issues in the Court, but if Max does something he thinks is stupid, his usual response is to bonk him on the head with a cane.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: He can be this way towards those whom he thinks are being stupid or immoral.

!!Count Shiny Copper Coin
!!!Earth pony. A noble of the Court. His county includes the land inhabited by the tiny village of Oaton.

* AntiVillain: Type II. He wishes that he didn't have to engage in the activities that are harming Oaton, but can't see any other course of action for what he needs.
* BigBrotherInstinct: One of the main reasons for his alliance with the Lumber Guild is to find his little sister Tarnished and bring her back home.
* [[spoiler: ImpoverishedPatrician]]: [[spoiler: His parents drove the family so deep into debt before he came to power that he's forced to work with criminals and smugglers just to try to slow the bleeding.]]
* SpeechImpediment: Has a stutter that he can suppress with effort.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: [[spoiler: With Cheerilee, a status that he actually shares with his sister, Tarnished.]]

!!Viscount Prince Blueblood
!!!Unicorn. Viscount in the Night Court with a vendetta against Trixie for reasons unknown.
* DemotedToExtra: In the earlier stories [[WhatCouldHaveBeen he was intended to become the primary political antagonist for the Lunaverse Six]], before Duke Greengrass took the role.
* EvilCounterpart: To Trixie, in regard to her Element of Magic. Both are minor political figures, but while Trixie uses her talents to help others, Blueblood's only interests are himself and restoring his family line to prominence.
* GutFeeling: His special talent is "direction", and expresses itself this way. As long as he follows his instincts and doesn't get too caught up in his own attempts at scheming, he tends to benefit.
** A good example is at the Gala, when he accepts Pinkie Pie as his companion for the night. [[spoiler:Since she keeps Zizanie and Raindrops from getting close enough to poison him with the Scourge, and she drinks his (spiked) punch before he can, he is spared from the effects of the Scourge. She even turns out to be a good influence on him in the long term when they officially become a couple.]]
* HiddenDepths: His [[ADayInTheLimeLight "Longest Night" side story]] shows that he's highly devoted to restore his family's old status, and he was the first in line to gather the unicorn nobility to help the Royal Guard against Corona.
** Trope's even mentioned by name by [[spoiler: Zizanie]].
* HisNameReallyIsBarkeep: Played with. Prince is his real name, but not his actual title.
* HowTheMightyHaveFallen: His ancestor had ([[IDidWhatIHadToDo presumably]]) sided with Corona, which brought the whole family into unpopularity in the Night Court. The whole Blueblood line has ever since worked to earn back their FamilyHonor.
* OldShame: The above-mentioned past with Corona.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: He's actually depicted as being reasonably politically savvy, if underinformed. He's simply outclassed by serious players like Greengrass.
* ShipTease: with Pinkie Pie, after the Grand Galloping Gala. It's even inspired a couple romance stories.
* ThemeNaming: The Blueblood family make a habit of naming their children after ranks of nobility higher than their actual station.

!!Viscount Silver Shackles
!!!Unknown tribe. Head of the Police and Jail Committees of the Night Court.

!!Baroness Buttercup
!!!Daughter and heiress of Baron Rolling Fields. Was in a relationship with Baron Mounty Max, but he broke it off upon learning of her corruption.
* CastFromHitPoints: How her (illegal) spell to help her father retain his mind works.
* JustifiedCriminal

!!Baron Mounty Max
!!!Earth pony. Junior member of the court. Naive, and would rather be rock climbing.
* ActionHero: Despite being a noble, he tends to wind up in situations where he gets into physical fights. He's disrupted at least two major crime sprees, and those are just the ones we know of.
* {{Determinator}}: He doesn't have much martial training, if any, so on the occasions when he gets into a fight with another pony [[spoiler:like his duel with Fisher in ''Climbing the Mountain'',]] his fighting style basically amounts to tanking whatever his opponent is hitting him with and stubbornly refusing to stay down.
* MentorShip: With the far more experienced Duchess Posey.
* NaiveNewcomer: To the Night Court.
* NiceGuy: Even before getting his own stories, his few appearances had shown him to be very friendly and approachable.
* OddFriendship: With Duke Greengrass, after the business with the Sun Cult.
* ThePaladin: Turning into this. He almost gets himself killed to save Greengrass, a criminal whom Max detested, because it was the right thing to do. Then he risked his life saving a bunch of captured criminals from execution, even going hoof-to-hoof with some of the terrorists responsible, again because it was the right thing to do.

!![[spoiler: The Late]] Baron Rolling Fields
!!!Baron of Houhynym. Slowly slipping into senility, despite the best efforts of his daughter. Friends with Baron Max.

!!Flim and Flam
!!!Two con-artist unicorns.
* ConMan
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: They were utterly baffled that Carrot Top [[spoiler: saved the Apples crops from the Farmslayers]] (which had the benefit of rendering their blackmail scheme useless).
* LaserGuidedKarma: They abducted Apple Bloom. This was the final straw for Greengrass, who was worried that he'd be blamed (since they were technically working for him at the time). He thus had them sent to jail and put in solitary confinement so they can't tell anyone he hired them.
* PutOnABus: After they screw up in a major way, Greengrass frames them for treason and has them arrested.

* [[spoiler: TheAtoner: After ''Musicians and Dreamers''. However, she [[BeAllMySinsRemembered doesn't expect any forgiveness for betraying her friend]].]]
* {{Badass}}: See FightingFromTheInside. Octavia managed to throw off Thrash Metail's brainwashing attempts with ThePowerOfRock after hearing ''one'' good metal concert. Before that, she lasted about two hours through sheer force of will.

* DrillSergeantNasty: A musical version. [[spoiler:Deconstructed during ''A Concert For Ponyville'' when the [[ShrinkingViolet naturally reclusive Fluttershy]] clams up to Octavia's teaching style, leading to a fallout between the two. It's only when Trixie convinces Octavia to be more gentle with her that the two start making progress.]]
* ElegantClassicalMusician: And how.
* FightingFromTheInside: She's been the victim of attempted brainwashing by two foes so far: a squad of mercenaries who try to immobilize her by flooding her mind with paralyzing, despairing thoughts, and a metal musician who uses magic music to try to force her to love his mediocre works. She fights them off both times. As one commentator noted, she has a mind like a steel trap.
* TheMentor: to Lyra.
** [[spoiler: BrokenPedestal: Is revealed to be Greengrass' agent who was supposed to bring Lyra under his influence.]]
** [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn: and then she [[DoubleAgent starts working for Trixie]] [[TheAtoner in order to protect Lyra]].]]
* OddFriendship: With the hyperactive, over-excited Paperweight.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Paperweight's red.
* SilkHidingSteel: A soft-spoken, elegant, refined artist. But make the mistake of pushing her too far, and ''[[AdaptationalBadass she will wreck you]]''.

!!!Servant oh Vicereine Puissance.

* TheDragon: To Fisher
** DragonWithAnAgenda
* [[spoiler: TheMole: The end of Just Us Little Ponies reveals that, not only was Volk the head of the conspiracy in that story, and not only was he behind the Sun Cult cell that almost killed Greengrass and Notary, but he's possibly a changeling as well.]]
* [[spoiler: NeverFoundTheBody: There's a reason for that.]]
* [[spoiler: NoOneCouldSurviveThat: This is said about him after the column he is standing on collapses in 'Just Us Little Ponies'. Turns out, Volk could in fact survive that.]]
* PraetorianGuard
* [[spoiler: TheStarscream: It's revealed at the end of JULP that the real goal of the plan was to bring down Fisher, Equestria's Minister of War and one of the few ponies most capable of dealing with Volk's real employers--the changelings. And he succeeded handsomely.]]
* UnexplainedRecovery: Averted. While he [[spoiler: survives a great fall in 'Just Us Little Ponies', a reason is implied--that he's a changeling and can shapeshift into a form with wings. Also, while he's given a limp by Max earlier in that story, he doesn't actually recover from it.]]
* TheUnfought: In his first appearance [[spoiler: as the conspiracy leader]] in 'Just Us Little Ponies', he sends machines to attack the ponies in the train tunnels. He doesn't actually fight anypony himself until the airship docking bay showdown, and even then, he doesn't put up much of a fight. [[spoiler: Possibly because he's a changeling and so isn't as good a fighter as the real Volk]].
* VillainExitStageLeft: Slips away at the end of 'Just Us Little Ponies'.

!!!Discordian Unicorn. Spy, illusionist and a shape-shifter who worked for multiple members of the Night Court.
* BodyHorror: Of all of the ponies freaked out by her using her power to the fullest (and thus manifesting as a draconequus), she was the most disturbed of the lot.
* HumiliationConga: Her time as [[BadBoss Trixie's]] assistant. She thought Trixie [[JerkassFacade treated her like that due to]] [[PayEvilUntoEvil having seen through her disguise]]... only to learn that Trixie did it unintentionally, just [[JerkAss being her usual self]].
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: Gains draconequus traits when overusing her chaos magic.
* MasterOfDisguise

* TheMole: pretending to be an applicant for the job of Representative's assistant.

!!Fleur de Lis
!!!Unicorn. Fancy Pant's companion. Appears to be an airhead.

Even so, by himself his barriers are strong enough that even ''Twilight'' can't break through them [[spoiler: without cracking the universe in the process]].

* ThePowerOfRock

!!Fame Fortisi
!!!The second musician to try the Symphony for Moon and Sun. Her ending emphasized Luna's cunning and intelligence.
* TheRival: to Concerti, who overshadowed her in [[IncrediblyLamePun fame]].

!!Octavia Philharmonica
!!!See 'Canterlot: Night Court Staff and Servants

!!Off Beat
!!!Sweet Song's agent and brother, who wants only to see her fail.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: he's got some talent in music, but compared to [[TheRainman his sister]]...
* BigBrotherBully
* TheCaretaker: to her sister, and ''hates'' it, as he feels she's [[AllTakeAndNoGive holding him back]] from the successful career he wished for himself.
* HeadsIWinTailsYouLose: His plan for Sweet Song's concert. If she succeeds, he'd get the credit as her primary caretaker while she'd embarrass herself by being mentally disabled. If she fails, it would be the end of her career and he'd be able to get rid of her. [[spoiler: [[DidntThinkThisThrough He didn't account that]] Luna might figure out he put her up to it.]]
* JerkAss: He briefly considered just leaving to have his own life, but instead agreed to become his sister's agent specifically to ruin her life, taking pleasure in the fact that his actions make her cry uncontrollably at night and ultimately ruining her love of music.

!!Piano Amour
!!!The forty-ninth musician to try the Symphony for Moon and Sun, and the only such musician still alive when Octavia finally completed the work. Her ending emphasized Luna's despair and the sheer destruction of the battle.
* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: in-universe. Compared to the previous attempts, her rendition of the symphony is a lot darker and sadder, focusing on Luna's DespairEventHorizon. [[spoiler: She went a ''bit'' too far, however, describing it in almost nihilistic light.]]
* ThickerThanWater: she played the symphony in order to help her family.
* ThrowTheDogABone: out of all the failed performers of the symphony, Piano was probably most content with the outcome. [[spoiler: She's also the only one alive to witness when Octavia stops the line of failed attempts by finishing the piece properly, gaining somewhat a closure for her own work too.]]

!!Red Magician
!!!Unicorn. The twenty-seventh musician to try the Symphony for Moon and Sun. His ending emphasized Luna's magical prowess and skill.

!!!The twelfth musician to try the Symphony for Moon and Sun. A scam artist. Her ending was flashy and glitzy, with no further themes.
* [[ConMan Con Mare]]

!!Sweet Song
!!!The thirty-ninth musician to try the Symphony for Moon and Sun. Mentally disabled, and can do little besides play the violin. Her ending mimicked the existing music as closely as possible.
* [[TheRainman The Rainmare]]: more or less ''only'' thing she can do is play violin.

!! Thrash Metail
!!!A mysterious musician who has recently skyrocketed to popularity in Canterlot.
* ArtifactOfDoom: The Guitar of the Sirens he used to control others has a tendency to corrupt the wielders.
* HeavyMetal: In a technical sense. He's not actually that good, as Crescendo and Octavia both discover.
* MagicMusic
* MindControlMusic: How he got so popular. His music is actually sub-par, but the guitar prevents them from noticing it when his music is played live.
* ThePowerOfRock: Can brainwash ponies with his metal music.
* TheRockStar


A nation to the south of Equestria that is closely allied with them, and is ruled by Princess Cadance, Luna's daughter.

!!Mi Amore Cadenza
!!!Alicorn. Princess of Cavallia, a land to Equestria's southeast. Apparently once believed herself to be the reincarnation of all things good about Celestia. ''All tropes below apply to her appearance in'' An Early Reunion, ''980 years before the rest of the Lunaverse, unless otherwise stated.''
* BadassPrincess: Erases ''any'' doubt of this in ''From the Depths'', when she takes on [[FluffyTheTerrible Squirk]], a bona fide EldritchAbomination.
* BenevolentBoss: To her retainer, Cartasole. He's explicitly identified as an indentured servant (not quite, but basically, a slave) in the comments of ''An Early Reunion,'' but Cadence treats him with respect and care, even going so far as to try and protect him when it looked like [[ItMakesSenseInContext Luna was going to try and kill her and all the other Celestia impersonators]].
* BiTheWay: ''An Awkward Day'', set approximately 700 years after ''An Early Reunion'', has her mention that one of her previous spouses was a mare.
** Though, note that this is quite common in the Lunaverse.
* ADayInTheLimelight: ''An Early Reunion'' is a distant prequel to the Lunaverse, taking place 980 years before the first episode, and focuses on the then-twenty-year-old's Mi Amore Cadenza's first meeting with Princess Luna.
* DoNotCallMePaul: Played with. Her adoptive parents named her Mi Amore Cadenza, and Luna wants to call her either Cadenza or Cadence since she doesn't believe that she really is Celestia reborn. Cadence, for her part, wants to be called Celestia.
** There's a good reason Luna doesn't believe that Cadence is Celestia reborn. The epilogue of the story reveals that Luna is Cadence's mother.
* AGodAmI: Averted. Cadence's specific goal in ''An Early Reunion'' is basically to become the deity of the sun, but she continuously demonstrates herself to be kind, caring, maybe a little ditzy, but in all ways, even if not necessarily right for the job, certainly not a bad candidate, and a far cry better than her predecessor.
* GoalInLife: Hers, she believes, is to reclaim her throne in Equestria as the alicorn in charge of the sun; she's trying to prove herself to Luna as a result.
* IWantSong: ''An Early Reunion'' opens up with Cadence, believing herself to be Celestia, singing about her goal of coming to Canterlot and reclaiming what she believes to be her rightful throne.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Grew up as an earth pony, but around when other foals were earning their cutie marks, she manifested her horn and wings. She was told that she was the reincarnation of all that was good in Celestia, and has accepted this as fact and is eagerly looking forward to becoming the sun deity.
* LivingForeverIsAwesome: Though the last chapter of ''An Early Reunion'' made mention that, after her first husband died, she did have a brief period of [[WhoWantsToLiveForever regreting her immortality,]] she eventually recovered, and now views her immortality as a positive thing. She regrets every friend and lover who dies, but refuses to let it get her down, instead viewing her life as a progression of one good time to another.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: She married Cartasole after the events of ''An Early Reunion'', but outlived him due to being immortal. She's noted to have had other romances over the centuries, with Shining Armor [[ForegoneConclusion hinted to]] [[OfficialCouple become next]]. [[spoiler: That is, unless the [[DoomedByCanon canon]] is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in later fics...]]
** Any pony who wants a long-term commitment with her gets "The Talk" about what it means to love an immortal. That she will be saddened when they pass away, but her heart will eventually open itself up to the possibility of new love with someone else. This does not in any way diminish the love she feels for those she is with, though, or for those who have come before.
* MistakenForAnImposter: Played with. Was one of about thirty ponies all claiming to be Celestia reborn. Luna thought that they were ''all'' imposters and had them all arrested after giving them a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. However, when Cadence made her presence known, Luna realized that she was an alicorn - though not necessarily Celestia reborn - and had her and Cartasole instead brought into Canterlot castle as guests.
* NaiveNewcomer: While she was prepared to become the princess, she had no real idea of how much of a CrapsackWorld Equestria had become, nor does she remember what the era of Corona had really been like.
* NeverGrewUp: In a sense. Despite being 20 years old in ''An Early Reunion,'' and so a full adult, Cadence has yet to earn her cutie mark.
** She does earn it a few years later, though, specifically around the time that Cartasole proposed to her.
* PhysicalGod: ''Is'' an alicorn, just like Luna, but she is very young, and grew up as an earth pony, so her powers at the moment are largely unexplored.
** The side-story ''An Awkward Day'' showcases a much more mature and confident Cadenza, after 700 years of getting comfortable with her power and role as Cavallia's princess. By that point, she's capable of flying faster than sound, casting powerful spells casually, and using the [[NoIndoorVoice Royal Canterlot Voice]] if she feels the need.
* PokeThePoodle: In Chapter 1 of ''An Early Reunion,'' the owner of an inn and tavern was rude to her when she let slip that she believes that she is Celestia reborn, this being a mere 20 years after Celestia went insane and tried to take over Equestria. Her response?
--> “When I am Princess again, thou shalt ''regret thy actions!'' I will visit ''ruination'' upon thy business! I shall…I shall give it a ''poor review'' and ''none shall wish to dine here!”''
** The owner then points out that the Celestia ''they knew'' would have burned the place down.
* ThePowerOfLove: As in the maneverse, Cadance's special talent is love. However, it's clarified that her talent is ''all'' love - romantic love, the love between friends and family, the love of a citizen for his or her country, and so on. Additionally, she cannot create love, only clarify or help it grow. Her special talent also gives her some degree of awareness and sensitivity to all other emotions, as well.
* SlidingScaleofIdealismVersusCynicism: Well towards the idealist side; arguably, in fact, one of the most positive characters in the entire Lunaverse, exceeded only by Dinky.
* SpoiledSweet: In Cavallia, she's treated as something of a messiah, and has lived a life of comfort and luxury ever since she discovered her alicorn nature. She also looks forward to being a Princess and feels that luxury and comfort are hers by right. However, she is courteous, kind, [[PokeThePoodle not very good at making threats,]] and seems to want to genuinely help ponies.
** This doesn't change with time, as the last chapter of ''An Early Reunion'' and the side-story ''An Awkward Day'' show.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Throughout ''An Early Reunion,'' but then every noble character speaks that way to get the point across that it takes place 980 years ago.


[[folder: Cloudsdale]]
A city in the clouds where Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy come from

!!!Pegasus. Mother of Rainbow Dash, works for the Posey family.

!!Thunderous Posey
!!!Pegasus. Wealthy weather industrialist, father of Fluttershy
* OverprotectiveDad: His daughter wants to live on the ground? Sure, he just arranges somepony to watch over her... [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse by making sure her closest friend moves there to take care of her]].


[[folder:Everfree Forest]]

A strange forest next to Ponyville in which the plants and animals take care of themselves, without needing pony caretakers. Location of the ancient Castle of the Alicorn Sisters.

!!The Sirens
!!!Three sirens (names unknown) who live in the Everfree Forest. Surprisingly pleasant for beings who want to lure ponies into a river so that they can drown, and then eat them.
* AffablyEvil
* EnthrallingSiren: Well, duh.
* PunchClockVillain: Only trying to get some lunch out of ponies.
* TheCameo: Make a brief return in ''Title Match''
* [[ThoseTwoGuys ThoseThreeVillains]]


An urban city.

!!Castor Cut
!!!Unicorn. Dinky Doo and and Amethyst Star's father. Cheated on his wife, May Bell, with Ditzy Doo (which is how Dinky was born).

!!Manetelli and Mareio Luca
!!!Two mafiosi who are abducted by [[spoiler: Volk's]] group and almost killed.
* AssholeVictim: To the point where Raindrops is genuinely tempted to just let them die.
* DeathTrap
* DirtyCoward
* EnemyMine: Subverted. Despite [[spoiler: Volk's]] group trying to kill both them and Max, they not only skip out on helping Max against them, but Manetelli actually tries to flee entirely.
* ISurrenderSuckers: Manetelli allows Max to save his life so that he can be taken back to jail, then pulls a knife and tries to flee arrest. Fortunately, Max's backup was waiting outside.
* KarmicDeath: They both almost get one from [[spoiler: Volk's]] group, and Mareio additionally almost gets one from Raindrops.

!!May Bell
!!!Unicorn. Castor Cut's ex-wife and Amethyst Star's mother. Divorced Castor Cut after his affair with Ditzy was revealed.

[[folder:Griffin Kingdoms]]

The largest nation on the continent, and the most powerful except for Equestria itself. The Kingdoms are most a loose collection of feudal fiefs ruled by local warlords, but the griffins can and will align into a more cohesive union when circumstances dictate.

!!!Griffin, Rainbow Dash's friend. A jerk with a heart of more jerkiness and a bad influence on Rainbow Dash.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Getting into a fight with Raindrops convinced Gilda that "Dropsy" was a really good friend... Nopony's really sure how that happened.
** AsskickingEqualsAuthority: As briefly explained by Trixie during her plan to force Gilda to leave town, supposedly griffin culture works this way (though it's more about posturing than actual violence) and is sort of what Gilda is appealing to.
** BlatantLies: Gilda is making patent abuse of cultural dissonance to weasel out of a well deserved beating while contently forgetting to mention that by griffin standards any 'friendship' would place her as clearly subservient to Raindrops.
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: between pony and griffin cultures is supposed to be at least partly the reason for her bad behaviors and attitude, though WordOfGod has it she's still something of a hooligan even by griffin standards as well.
* FantasticRacism: She makes it rather apparent that as a rule she has no respect for ponies, even going so far as to say, ''"All ponies look the same to me, each as lame as the next,"'' although she's quick to point out that Rainbow Dash is the [[SomeofMyBestFriendsAreX exception]].
* WorthyOpponent: views Raindrops as such, though more so out of fear than respect.


[[folder: Neigh Orleans]]
Trixie's hometown.

!!! Zebra/pony hybrid who bears a grudge against Trixie for reporting on his criminal brother to the police
* EvenEvilHasStandards: When he loses, he is approached by Zecora and offered a position at Corona's side. He refuses on the grounds that although he dislikes Luna's choice of apprentices, she is still a fair and competent ruler and that although he is a lawbreaker, he draws the line at treason.
* IrrationalHatred: Hates Trixie for turning his brother in for a robbery he tried to commit. The rest of the family believes in a karma-like concept, so they don't outright hate her though. He also seems to associate that hate with her friends.
** After the Mayor kicks him out of town, he summons monsters to attack Ponyville.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Part of what makes him a NotSoHarmlessVillain is the fact that with Voodoo, it's often hard to tell how much of it is actual power and how much is simply smoke and mirrors, or altered Poison Joke. Trixie says he could still be a threat if only about a tenth of what he did had any actual power to it.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Despite the below, he is skilled in Voodoo that Trixie knows is not to be taken lightly and has affected a certain number of characters negatively.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Believes himself to be Trixie's Nemesis. Trixie just thinks he's a pest.
* SmugSnake
* SquishyWizard: Does not appear to be very strong, and Mayor Mare punches him out at one point.
* VillainSong: Sings a song taken almost ''word for word'' from ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' when summoning monsters to attack Ponyville. When it's over, he quickly leaves because he doesn't know where the chorus came from.

Equestria's newest province. Tiny, mountainous, and very sparsely populated, this territory only became a province because it was literally so obscure that it wasn't on the map.

!!Archduke Bobbing Fisher
See under Night Court of Luna: Royalty and Nobility

!!!Head of security for Fisher Mining. [[spoiler: Recruited for Volk's conspiracy]]
* TheBigGuy: And how.
* TheBrute: Cheerilee can barely damage him, and even Raindrops doesn't want to go hoof-to-hoof with him. She only beats him because the arena is rigged with bombs that he's not smart enough to dodge.
* DumbMuscle
* EnfanteTerrible: While he is an adult, he has the mind of a child
* HuskyRusskie
* MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong
* PsychopathicManchild: Can come off this way, although he's ''so'' childlike he genuinely doesn't understand what he's doing is wrong.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: In addition to being one of the strongest non-alicorn characters in the Lunaverse, he's also got a mortar spell that was strong enough to annihilate heavy-duty train rail.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Insofar as he's capable of having intentions, he seems to genuinely think that he's doing the right thing by getting rid of the 'bad' ponies.

!!Hirsute Lord
!!!Lord Mayor of Stalliongrad.

!!!Head of Fisher Security. Big sister of Goliath
* AlwaysABiggerFish: Juggernaut is apparently even bigger and tougher than Goliath.

* TheJuggernaut: Well, duh.
* MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong

!!Svelte Lord
!!!Representative of the Night Court to Stalliongrad. Married to Archduke Fisher. Sister of Hirsute Lord.
* BigScrewedUpFamily: WordOfGod has implied that she doesn't get along with her Fisher (who would sacrifice ponies for the greater good) or her brother (who is so obsessed with his alleged 'royal' ancestry that he cares little about anything else.)


[[folder:Treasure City]]
A village where Vicereine Puissance keeps most of her warehouses and treasuries. One such treasury, the Vault, holds a collection of rare and unusual ponies.

!!!Null pony. A quiet and loving physician.

!!The Watcher
!!!A Saurian Emperor who led his people in combat against the alicorns. Currently protects the uintatherium.
* AndManGrewProud: He shows Lyra the story of what happened to wipe out the Saurian race.
* BreakTheHaughty: The extinction of his people and the subsequent period of isolation were this for him, finally allowing him to see just how wrong his actions were.
* CompositeCharacter: A mixture between Azala, leader of the Reptiles from Chrono Trigger and Emperor Xin, founder of the Thassalonian Empire from the Pathfinder campaign setting of Golarian.
* LookOnMyWorksYeMightyAndDespair: In order to restore morale after his forces lost to the alicorns time and time again, he attempted to divert a comet closer to their capital. The resulting cataclysm killed so many Saurians that they soon went extinct.
* {{Pride}}: His major sin.
* TheWatcher: Well, duh.


[[folder:Corona and her Forces]]
!!!Alicorn. The Tyrant Sun. Wants to take over Equestria, and is the single most dangerous threat to Equestria as a whole that we yet know of. Older sister of Luna. Completely insane, immortal, and even more powerful than Luna. Speaks in early modern English. Real name is Celestia (and demands to be addressed as such).
* AGodAmI
* AntiVillain: Type III.
* BerserkButton: Do not call her Corona, do not treat her disrespectfully, do not blame her for anything, do not dare thinking her rule would be anything but just and righteous, do not mock her speech... [[HairTriggerTemper the list goes on and on]].
* TheCaligula
* CatchPhrase / IAmTheTrope: "I am the SUN!"
* EnemyMine: With the Lunaversesix against Grogar. That's she's even willing to cooperate with them speaks volumes about how much of a threat he is.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: The thought of Luna actually working with someone like Grogar horrifies her.
* EvilIsHammy: her spouting of threats and demanding ponies to acknowledge her royal sovereignty can be [[LargeHam highly entertaining]], when it's not menacing.
* [[spoiler:HeelRealization: Partially, after [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame Tirek's approval fills her with shame.]] Although she still refuses to admit that she should not be the unchallenged queen of Equestria, she realizes that she has been going about her plans the wrong way and decides to simply overthrow Luna at Canterlot with as little bloodshed as possible.]]
* [[spoiler: HopeSpot: For the readers, in the questionably canon story ''I'll See You Soon''. In the last chapter, taking place 20 years in the future, we see a sane, level-headed, restored-to-her-position-as-a-diarch Princess Celestia having a normal (for them) conversation with an adult Dinky Doo.]]
* KnightTemplarParent: What she seems to be evolving into. According to her, Luna and the Bearers are now disobedient fillies who need to sit in the corner and let Mommy run things.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast
* MadGod
* [[spoiler:MamaBear]]: In ''The Return of Tambelon'', the Elements of Harmony realize that what drove her to madness was taking on this attitude toward all of Equestria.
* PhysicalGod
* Really700YearsOld: Like her younger sister Luna, she has forgotten her exact age beyond "millennia." [[BrickJoke No word as to whether she looks cute in glasses, though.]]
* RedemptionRejection: Luna offers her sister a chance to start over, but the mares mind is to far gone to even consider it.
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: She believes to be the only one capable of protecting Equestria. [[WellIntentionedExtremist Which requires her to take absolute control of everything under the Sun.]]
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Played with. Corona does not regret being immortal, but as a natural immortal she views ponies as gnats. Far from thinking of them as expendable and unimportant, however, she believes that she is the only one who can protect them from everything that would want to hurt them - it's ''her'' burden to bear.
** In other words, she doesn't regret her immortality, so much as regret that everypony else ''isn't'' immortal.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: after being banished to the Sun for a thousand years, her grasp on Equestrian is a bit outdated. She begs to differ on her command of the tongue.
** As of ''The Return of Tamberlon'', she has gotten better about this. [[OohMeAccentsSlipping She does tend to slip back into archaic Equestrian when stressed.]]

!! Kindle:
!!! Pegasus stallion. Leader of the Manehatten chapter of the Sun Cult. Overjoyed that his beloved Princess Celestia has come to purge the kingdom of wickedness.
* ChurchMilitant: The Sun Cult as a whole owing to its belief that one day, Luna will be punished for overthrowing Celestia.
* TheFundamentalist: Kindle himself. His prescription for society's ills is pretty much the same as Corona's: put a power-hungry maniac with a distinct allergy to admitting when she's in the wrong in charge.

!! Solrathicharon
!!! Blind, aged dragon who wants revenge on Luna for killing most of his family when they tried to invade Equestria shortly after Corona's fall.
* BadassGrandpa: Has gone up against Luna twice and has survived both times, which is nothing short of astonishing.
* HandicappedBadass: Despite being almost totally blind, he's strong and cunning enough to harass Luna and get away with it, even if he knows he can't straight-up defeat her.
* LightningBruiser: When he wants to, he can move ''so'' fast he can even take ''Luna'' by surprise.
* ManipulativeBastard: He has some kind of plan for the downfall of Luna. It's slowly beginning to come together throughout Season 2. [[spoiler:It involves stealing the Rainbow of Darkness...]]
* ThePowerOfHate: Solrath is ''old,'' even by dragon standards. He possibly would have died of old age some time ago, but his sheer hatred for Luna keeps him going.
* RevengeMyopia: He doesn't care that his family fired the metaphorical first shot. He wants vengeance on Luna for the [[SarcasmMode heinous crime]] of refusing to lie down and die.

!!!Baby dragon. Zecora's friend, but otherwise we don't know much about him. Does not seem to like the whole Corona situation. Somewhat snarky. Corona can force him to age, making him giant and giving him wings, and also turning him into a hulking, hungry brute. Probably not a fan of this, either.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: In ''A Chance Encounter''.
* TokenGoodTeammate: ''Really'' doesn't like Corona, and only sticks with her because of his friendship with Zecora.

!!!Zebra. Skilled potion-maker and alchemist, also has the gift of prophecy, though how exact is unknown. Always speaks in rhyme. Loyal to Corona.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: The primary reason that she's working for Corona is that a prophecy said she had to. Beyond the great big crisis, she doesn't know what's going to happen.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Doesn't bother making a pithy comment when Lyra asks her if she has a rhyme for "orange".
* RhymesOnADime
* [[{{Seers}} Seer]]: [[spoiler: At least claims to have foreseen the return of Corona, and arrived to Equestria as her servant.]]
** She also predicts the return of Tambelon, and claims [[spoiler:to have freed Corona to prevent something worse.]]
* SixthRanger: worked as a guide for the main six through the Everfree Forest.
** SixthRangerTraitor: ... and was quick to inform Corona of their plans, as she is a Sun worshiper.
* SycophanticServant: a mix of this and BeleagueredAssistant, as she's genuinely loyal and efficient servant, yet has to work through constantly butt-kissing her arrogant and bad-tempered boss.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: She doesn't personally have anything against ponykind. She just has to keep her destiny to serve Corona in mind.

!!!A mechanical Minotaur golem powered by magic. Invented by Grinding Gears, it quickly went on a rampage around the Everfree Forest until it was dismantled by Trixie and her friends. Zecora recovered its head and plans to rebuild it to serve Corona.
* ALoadOfBull: Modeled after a Minotaur.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Golems are notorious for twisting even the simplest and most mundane of orders to ensure a violent and destructive outcome. To elaborate, Hostile's sole order was to "Live"; a directive it interpreted as "pulverize anything and everything that I wish."
* AnArmAndALeg: Lost both of its arms during its first fight with Big Mac. Since they were magic too, they quickly reattached themselves to it.
* BullSeeingRed: Thanks to the heavy beating Big Mac gave it, it has a particularly violent reaction whenever something red comes into view.


[[folder: Other Monsters]]

!! The Dark & Omnipotent Antithesis
!!!An extremely powerful and psychotic alicorn pony who is devoted to murdering both Twilight and Trixie in ''Crisis on Two Equestrias''.
* AntiMagic: She can negate and shut down magic, including creating a field over the entire Everfree Forest to stop teleportation. Also has a double meaning, since [[spoiler:Friendship is Magic in the MLP universe, and thus Antithesis is much the embodiment of anti-magic along with anti-friendship.]]
* AxCrazy: When she finds out there's two Trixies and two Twilights, she's initially confused, then grows to excited because that means there's more of them to kill, and eagerly asks if there's more yet.
* CardCarryingVillain:
-->'''Antithesis:''' Am I evil just because I want to kill you? Am I evil just because I would rather tear you limb from limb and watch you bleed out one at a time, and I’m genuinely sad I won’t be able to? Am I evil just because after I’m done here I’m going to go to Ponyville and slaughter everypony you four have ever loved out of pure spite?! \\
'''Twilight:''' Yes! \\
'''Antithesis:''' *{{beat}}* Excellent! I ''like'' knowing my place in the world! So few ponies do.
* [[spoiler:[[HumanoidAbomination Equine Abomination]]]]: [[spoiler:She isn't actually a pony at all, and is the first to admit it.]]
* DissonantSerenity: [[spoiler: When finally dying, oddly enough.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Twilight and Trixie [[spoiler:as well as the Element of Magic itself]].
* FlatCharacter[=/=]GenericDoomsdayVillain: She has no goal or personality beyond being a psychotic pony that wants to go on a murderous rampage, starting with Twilight and Trixie. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], though, in that [[spoiler:she is literally created out of the animosity between the two bearers of the Element of Magic and their interdimensional counterparts, and hasn't even existed long enough to start forming any other motivation]].
* ForTheEvulz: Why she wants to kill the Twilights and Trixies from both the Lunaverse and Celestiaverse.
* FusionDance: [[spoiler:Takes elements of both Twilight and Trixie for her physical appearance, down to her cutie mark being a combination of theirs.]]
* [[HasTwoMommies Has Four Mommies]]: [[spoiler: The Twilights and Trixies from both the Lunaverse and Celestiaverse.]]
* PowerOfTheVoid: Both Trixies note she technically doesn't cast magic, she rips magical holes in existence and spells rush out through them. Her anti-magic spheres are experienced by wrapping the victim in nothingness.
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: She doesn't, but while dying she states that her one regret is that she didn't take at least one Twilight or one Trixie with her.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Completely averted at her own instance. She regrets nothing she's done, and would have done worse if she could.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: [[spoiler: Is created by the shattering of the Element of Magic, meaning that she's only a few hours old at most when she first meets her "mothers".]]

!! Bray:
!!! Tamberlaan donkey prince. Made a deal to Grogar to kill his father, siblings and ponies to become king of Tambelon.

* AbsoluteXenophobe: Wanted to kill Tamberlaan ponies in order to rule Tambelon.
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead: Returns to life after Grogar is defeated]].
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: First he betrays his family, the rulers of Tambelon, to Grogar. The he plans to betray Grogar to take Tambelon for himself. [[spoiler:He gets a chance to enact the second, too, and takes it. It...doesn't work out.]]
* [[spoiler:CruelAndUnusualDeath: Gets his soul ripped out by the newly immortal Grogar. ''Ouch''.]] [[spoiler:[[BackFromTheDead He gets better...]] [[FateWorseThanDeath not that it helps him much.]]]]
* DirtyCoward: Completely okay with backstabbing, betrayal, and running away.
* [[spoiler:FateWorseThanDeath: He comes back to life on Tambelon after Grogar is defeated, but also after everyone else has left. His means of casting spells, however, was destroyed, and his only way to re-create it was accidentally teleported off of the island. Thus, he is trapped on an overgrown forested island save for a ruined city, with no ability to escape.]]
* [[spoiler:HoistByHisOwnPetard: His own actions screw him over and trap him on Tambelon with no magic or way of getting off the island]].
* [[spoiler:RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: Twice. First killed by Grogar, ''then'' after coming back to life, finds himself trapped in the ruins of the kingdom he helped destroy.]]
* RoyalBrat
* TheStarscream: Twice, even: he's the one who brought Grogar to Tambelon in the first place, so that Grogar could kill Bray's father and siblings so that he could be King. Nowadays, he wants to overthrow Grogar so that he can rule Tambelon (presumably to have access to its vast libraries of magic or something).
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn: Manipulated by Grogar into granting him immortality.]]
* [[spoiler:YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness]]: [[spoiler:Double subverted. Once Grogar gets his soul back, he informs Bray that he intends to use him as the final sacrifice in Grogar's plan to achieve immortality. The ensuing fight ends with Bray [[DisneyVillainDeath chucking Grogar off of a balcony]]. The double subversion comes when Grogar survives, reveals that someone had to kill him in order to turn him into a lich, and ''then'' kills Bray.]]
* WeakButSkilled: His approach to magic.

!!! The Spirit of Chaos. Originally contained in the Tree of Harmony's EvilCounterpart, the Tree of Discord, he was freed by the misguided efforts of an unknown creature and subsequently took the form of a deranged parody of his liberator. Despite having been defeated and contained by Celestia and Luna, he nonetheless holds a sizable presence in the story due to cultists and his own "descendants" trying to either free him or continue where he left off.
* CardboardPrison: The Maneverse version of Celestia believes that Discord will always render whatever prison he is in as one of these. If it's time for him to escape, then he will escape no matter the measures in place.
* TheDreaded: He hasn't walked the land in millenia, but the very thought of him gives both Luna and the mad Corona pause.
* EldritchAbomination
* EndOfAnEra: Singlehandedly ended what was considered by many to be Equestria's Golden Age, bringing an end to over three thousand years of prosperity and heralding a much darker and more treacherous era.
* EvilCounterpart: The Lunaverse version of Discord is pointedly the ArchEnemy of the very concept of Harmony, and the Tree specifically.
* EvilKnockoff: His physical form was modeled after the individual that freed him. Given the patchwork of creature parts that make up his body, it's hard to tell what that poor sap actually was.
* TheGhost: Mentioned many times throughout the Lunaverse's run, including the first episode. No appearances at all yet, though.
* TheJuggernaut: One of the Alicorn Sisters is enough to best most foes and together their raw might and prowess were enough to vanquish every threat that came their way. Their need to bolster their abilities with the Elements of Harmony to face him, and the fact that he's the only menace that required this extraordinary measure on their part says a lot about how powerful he was.

!! Grogar:
!!! Demon Ram[[spoiler:/Lich]]. Committed mass genocide to the Tamberlaan 2,000 years ago as part of a ritual to gain immortality.
* AGodAmI: Blatantly claims to be a god [[spoiler:during his VillainousBreakdown. The Luna-6 are quick to [[KilledOffForReal correct this delusion.]]]]
* TheArchmage: Powerful enough to have challenge Luna and Celestia together two thousand years ago. He lost, but he apparently put up a Hell of a fight. Celestia and Luna have both acknowledged him as likely being the most powerful mortal spellcaster to have ever lived, with only Starswirl the Bearded providing any competition.
* DealWithTheDevil: Traded his soul to Tirek in exchange for knowledge to help him gain immortality. [[spoiler:He was disappointed to find out that the ritual he had planned ''required'' him to still have his soul.]]
* EvilOverlord: Intimidating fortress in a ruined city? Check. Plan to take over/kill the world? Check. Hordes upon hordes of faceless goons? Check. Fearful sinister second-in-command at his beck and call? Check. Dark magic? Check. So far the only things he's missing are the quirky miniboss squad, black wardrobe (but then, his fur is soot-gray), and powerful but vulnerable MacGuffin (but that might be coming)
* FatalFlaw: Bray considers Grogar's impatience to be his biggest weakness.
* GenreSavvy: "Kill Celestia. Bring me one of the ponies alive, it does not matter which, but I want it unharmed if at all possible. Kill the rest." [[spoiler:Comes apart in the end, though; once he's achieved his goal, he starts gloating and showing far more emotion.]]
* HistoricalVillainDowngrade: He is described by Luna that he had done so many atrocities that he had to be erased in history. This is also to deny him the satisfaction of any immortality that he desired, including from being remembered.
* [[spoiler: IronicEcho: Berates Bray before killing him that Bray's goals were always so small compared to Grogar's. Later, though, Luna says that ''Grogar's'' goals are so small compared to most of the monsters ''she's'' fought.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* LivingForeverIsAwesome: Grogar certainly seems to think so, and achieving immortality is his ultimate goal throughout The Return of Tamberlon. [[spoiler:And as of Chapter 10, he's pulled it off.]]
* [[spoiler:OurLichesAreDifferent]]
* TheNecromancer: His power seems to derive from stolen life-force, which he can then use to animate golems. After slaughtering all of Tambelon, he has a lot of life-force to work with.
* [[spoiler: TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Victim of one from Luna, who notes that he's hardly the first monster that she's ever fought, and he's not even the first one to seek nor even to ''gain'' immortality. He's just the only one who's never had any goal beyond that. For all his power and intelligence, his goals and desires were just so ''[[IronicEcho small.]]'']]
* RuleOfThree: "The Return of Tamberlon" details the third time his prison failed over the centuries.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Just before his death.]]
* YourSoulIsMine: See the details of his DealWithTheDevil. [[spoiler:And in order to pull off the ritual that would turn him into a lich, he forcibly tool his soul ''back'' from Tirek when he got the chance. As a lich, he's able to take the soul of anyone against their will, which even the demonic Tirek can't do.]]

!!Lord Kerzog
!!!An ancient Saurian warlord who cheated death by means of a phylactery.
* AndIMustScream: Not only is it his punishment of choice for minions he no longer needs, but he winds up in this state after his final defeat.
* BackFromTheDead
* {{Golem}}: His new form upon resurrection
* OmnicidalManiac
* PerpetualMotionMonster
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Disposes of Ritter's team as soon as he's restored.

!!!An EldritchAbomination from the dawn of time that slept in the deepest bottom of the oceans. Used to rule the seas with terror.

* EldritchAbomination
* PowerOfHate: His power and magic are mostly ''pure hatred''.
* SealedEvilInACan: A lance was used to imprison him in a perpetual sleep.
* {{Telepathy}}: His way of communication.

!!The Windigo
!!!Ice Heart's father. He reappears in Season 2, looking for his son. Seems to communicate via telepathic images.

!!!A demon responsible for causing widespread chaos in Equestria until Celestia and Luna banished him to Tartarus.

* BiggerBad: In ''The Hero of Oaton'' and ''The Return of Tamberlon''. [[spoiler:Played straight in the former, where a shrine to him is responsible for corrupting Tarnished and almost destroying Oaton, but subverted in the latter, where Grogar summons him, takes his soul back from him, and chucks him back to Tartarus.]]
* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: To [[spoiler:Corona. Him praising her makes her have a partial HeelRealization and decide to simply usurp Luna in Canterlot rather than conquer all of Equestria by force.]]


[[folder:The Elements of Failmony]]
A group of supposed Element Bearers gathered by Twilight Sparkle in the LooseCanon tie-in ''Elements of Insanity'', in order to prove Trixie unworthy of the Element of Magic.

!!Clover Charms
!!!An unfortunate pony better known by her ironic nickname of ''Lucky''. Though not Twilight's original choice for Laughter, was deemed a perfect fit after they spoke.
* BizarreTasteInFood: Improvising meals put together from whatever was most heavily discounted has led to her developing lots of... ''interesting'' recipes.
** Heaven help us all if she and Trixie ever teamed up to host a dinner party.
* TheBusCameBack: Some time after Twilight's house arrest, Clover got in touch with Twilight and started hanging out with her again.
* CannotTellAJoke
* DeadpanSnarker
* DistaffCounterpart: Of a [[ male]] background pony with whom she shares her nickname, cutie mark, and coat color.
** CompositeCharacter: In addition to the male Lucky, another background pony considered for the role was [[ Shoeshine]] from whom she got her curly mane and arguably gender.
* IronicNickname: She's got plenty of ''luck'', unfortunately it's all bad.
* MeaningfulName: When combined, her nickname and last name are the same as a well-known kids' breakfast cereal. Her first name and cutie mark are even one of the associated marshmallows.
** According to WordOfGod this was a happy accident of changing the character's name (originally Lucky Clovers) to fit her IAmSong.
* ThePollyanna: Though not out of naiveté or ignorance. She is all too aware that with her rotten life she would have every good reason to [[{{Wangst}} wallow in despair]], but instead chooses to meet each and every day with an uncompromising [[AngstWhatAngst smile]].
--> ''"How could that not be the easiest choice in the world to make?"''
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Mare]]
* {{Schadenfreude}}: Is all too aware of this effect, and this is primarily how she brings others cheer: by making them glad they're not ''her''.

!!!Unicorn. The public at large knows her as the generous care-taker of a group of orphans which is why Twilight made the good-faith choice of selecting her as the Element of Generosity. Privately, though, she represents a threat that not even Luna herself seems to be aware of; that's because she and her charges are descendants of Discord himself ready to spread chaos in their ancestor's name.
* BitchInSheepsClothing
* BreedingCult: She originally comes form a family that was trying to consolidate the discordian bloodline and in so doing give rise to a new avatar of chaos.
* GameFace
* OrphanageOfLove: Runs one as a cover for her true nature.
* TokenEvilTeammate
* VillainWithGoodPublicity

!!Loosey Screws and Woody Wittles:
!!!Earth pony mother and her pegasus son. Lossey is the Lunaverse version of the pony who barked like a dog in Read It and Weep. Silverstar selected her to be the Element of Kindness because she was someone noble and good he'd encountered during the unspecified atrocity that led to his current state of self-doubt. Sadly, the horrors of the incident have reduced her to a shell of her former kindly, energetic self despite Lemonhearts' 'healing' her. Her caretaker son is somewhat too ready to forgive Silverstar for his liking...which qualifies him to be her stand-in.
* BrokenBird: Even though she's able to speak again, she's a ghost of the friendly figure she was before the nameless catastrophe that destroyed Silverstar's faith in himself.

!!!A formerly heroic Frontiersman who has become a shell of his former self following a personal tragedy. Twilight's choice for the Element of Loyalty.
* DrowningMySorrows: Sought solace in the bottom of bottles
* FailureKnight
* IGaveMyWord
* KnightInSourArmor
* ReplacementGoldfish: Fills an unspoken and unacknowledged void left by Twilie's inability to contact her BBFFF.

!!Snowflake [=McHugeLarge=]
!!!A highly enthusiastic pegasus bodybuilder with underdeveloped wings. Twilight deems him the Element of Honesty.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny
* {{Determinator}}
* DumbMuscle: Percieved as such due to his many quirks.
* NoIndoorVoice
* SorryBillyButYouJustDontHaveLegs: His underdeveloped wings and impaired hearing mean he can't become a Wonderbolt or royal guard. Not that he's letting that stop him.
