open/close all folders
English Voice Talents
apparently went to Vancouver
, and hired many talents used by The Ocean Group
for the voice actors, resulting in all this - and more!
- Twilight Sparkle is Raven and Harley Quinn.
- Rarity/Princess Luna is Martha, making this clip rather hilarious for bronies. Anime fans may know her better as Shana, Roberta, Pashmina, or Naomi Misora.
- Tabitha was also Kootie Pie/Wendy O. Koopa back in the latter two Super Mario Bros. cartoons (as Paulina Gillis), though this isn't particularly obvious until she starts whining.
- She was also Nokama as well as the first person to voice Nazz.
- Fluttershy/Pinkie Pie is Madeline.
- Applejack/Rainbow Dash are part of an indie pop band.
- You may wanna laugh that they're also Care Bears in Adventures in Care-a-Lot. Specifically, they are one Oopsy Bear. Who is clumsy and silly to the bone. Who's the silly pony now?
- She's also Black Widow (who sounds likes an older Rainbow Dash).
- She also voices Hansel from Black Lagoon. This makes Rainbow Factory look even more creepier.
- Spike is Near. This has also not gone unnoticed. He's also Snoozer and Cybersix, using the same voice Cathy used as Six's Adrian persona. To quote CR, "Now I think Spike's cross-dressing all the time."
- Princess Celestia/Cheerilee is Meiling Li.
- Scootaloo (Madeline Peters) and Apple Bloom (Michelle Creber) are Helen Lorraine and Alice.
- Gilda is Revy.
- Trixie/Queen Chrysalis is Dot Matrix. Kathleen Barr also voices one of the Pegasus bullies (Hoops) using her Kevin voice.
- Soarin' is Ed - and, perhaps more fittingly for a Pegasus, Finn.
- Discord is Q. This has definitely not gone unnoticed.
- Diamond Tiara is Bijou. Seriously.
- Snails is InuYasha.
- Snips, Steven Magnet and Spot the Diamond Dog are voiced by Lee Tockar, a.k.a. Bling-Bling Boy and Makuta Teridax.
- Chief Thunderhooves/Flam/Rover the Diamond Dog is Firaeveus Carron. Once again, this has not gone unnoticed.
- Fancy Pants is Kvasir, Nuju, and Mr. Chang.
- Daring Do is Hamtaro. Don't even think of imagining her eating a lot of Sunflower Seeds. She's also Hahlii.
- Princess Cadance is Cloe, Reggie Lass, Amethyst van der Troll, Blueberry Muffin, and Sabrina Spellman.
- Shining Armor voice actor, Andrew Francis, voiced Jaller from the first BIONICLE movie, who was also a captain of the guard.
- Little Strongheart is either Stacie, Vera or Judy.
- Lightning Dust is Stargirl, Nicole and Danielle, Jade, Mirabella, and Amanda.
- The tourist in Putting Your Hoof Down. Let's be honest, if you had to listen to Mike the TV and his endless infomercials, you'd get violent, too.
- It's even funnier when you realize that that tourist is also Malacath.
- Sweetie Belle is Tiny Pteranodon.
- "Weird Al" Yankovic is Cheese Sandwich.
- Trenderhoof is Vince, Odie, and Big Mitch.
- Seabreeze is Vegeta.
- Silver Shill is Goku, Mega Man, Coconuts, and Bill.

- Spitfire is Tachikoma, Buttercup, Sayu Yagami, Queen Orange, Sugar Sprinkles, and Nya.
- The Mane-iac is Fortuneteller Baba, Gabby, Destiny, Alma, and Brainy Barker.
- Flutterguy (Bridle Gossip) is Lord Mantel, Fodder, and Dekker.
- Flutterguy (Filli Vanilli) is Mr. Popo, Jon Talbain, Manten, Raoul, and Puppet Master.
- Cherry Fizzy is Master Roshi, Krillin, Dr. Qwark, Hachi, and Impossible Man.
