* AllYourPowersCombined: As an Alicorn god, he has the combined magics of all mortal Pony tribes, including Musical Ponies and Sea Ponies. This factors into his true appearance, where he has [[MixAndMatchCritters all the physical traits of all existing Pony tribes]], including [[spoiler:Flutter Pony wings]].



* BigLittleBrother: Downplayed. Due to being identical twins, he's marginally younger than Bossa Nova, his brother. However, as deities, he's now the "older" brother because he Ascended first while Bossa Nova Ascended shortly after, making him "younger". Hilariously, Bossa Nova didn't take this well when he found out, but he gradually accepted it.

Hilariously, Bossa Nova didn't take this well when he found out, but he gradually accepted it.



* DeityOfHumanOrigin: He was a mortal unicorn and one of the most famous celebrities of the Second Age, until he met Luminiferous, after which he quit his job as a career musician and went globe-trotting to perform on his own terms. The list of his good deeds grew until it warranted his Ascension into an Alicorn god of Music and Humility. It's later revealed that the meddling of his older twin brother, Bossa Nova, made Blue's Ascension possible as he was subtly directing things in a well-meaning attempt to help Blue recover from his parents' deaths. When that led to disaster instead, he tried to make up for his mistakes by directing Luminiferous to his brother.

* GoodWingsEvilWings: He has dual-colored wings, his feathers bearing a magical gradient that goes from yellow-orange to dark blue. Due to the nature of how divines grow in Equus, especially [[WingedUnicorn Alicorns]], his possession of a wing gradient is a sign of his age and incredible power.

Due to the nature of how divines grow in Equus, especially [[WingedUnicorn Alicorns]], his possession of a wing gradient is a sign of his age and incredible power. After Star Flower arrives on Equus [[spoiler:as the last surviving Flutter Pony, he gains Flutter Pony wings, which he, Stitching Time, and other Alicorns from the Second Age show to Star Flower to assure her that [[YouAreNotAlone she isn't alone as she thinks she is]]]].



* IronicFear: He refuses to get into acting again because he was forced to make movies for profit in his day, leaving him with an underlying fear of being exploited again. This is despite embodying Performance and having [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting abilities]], which would make him good at acting. He would eventually get over this thanks to Sola Mors and Queen Ithomiini, though.

* IronicFear: He refuses to get into acting again because when he was still a mortal, he was forced to make movies for profit in his day, by "Colonel" Hollow Note, leaving him with an underlying fear of being exploited again. This is despite embodying Performance and having [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting abilities]], which would make him good at acting. He would eventually get over this thanks to Sola Mors and Queen Ithomiini, though.


Added DiffLines:

* MixAndMatchCritters: As an Alicorn god, he has the traits of all Pony tribes currently existing on Equus, such as Musical Ponies and Sea Ponies, and can manifest any of said traits on his body, or all at once. After Star Flower arrived on Equus, [[spoiler:he gained Flutter Pony wings. This is what he and several other Second-Age Alicorns uses to assure Star Flower that [[YouAreNotAlone she technically isn't the last Flutter Pony in existence]].

Added DiffLines:

** In a canonized Codexverse drabble, Blue was one of several Second-Age Alicorns Princess Stitching Time brought over to assure Star Flower that [[spoiler:despite currently being the last Flutter Pony alive]], she isn't alone as she thinks she is. This is achieved by [[spoiler:all the Second-Age Alicorns present showing off the Flutter Pony aspects in their wings as a reminder that Alicorns embody the Flutter Pony tribe as well]]. This caused Star Flower to cry TearsOfJoy as she hugged everyone out of gratitude.


** He hates [[FantasticRacism tribalism/racism]], having grown up in early southern Ponyland during a time where it was heavily encouraged and accepted. The fact that he was willing to befriend people from different Pony tribes and non-Equine races was seen as shocking and offensive even during the early Second Age, resulting in his many critics and enemies attempting to sully his image. Even in the Fourth Age, he got attacked by the Age's tribalists, as well as Autorists for extending his hoof to non Equine races. Because of this, Blue sees tribalist/racist behavior as stupid and childish, and gets [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness really upset]] when people display it around him and others. It's revealed in a Codexverse quote that the [[CruelAndUnusualDeath brutal lynching]] of an teenage Earth pony colt, Garden Spade, played a major factor in his hatred of tribalism/racism in general because not only was it senselessly cruel, the killers responsible [[KarmaHoudini got away with their crime]] as well, with the judges ssssssssthemselves [[BystanderSyndrome letting them go out of tribalism instead of doing the right thing]].

* AffectionateNickname: Sola Mors calls him "Bluey" in a canonized Codexverse quote.



*** It's eventually double-subverted when, after confessing his traumas regarding "Colonel" Hollow Note to his friends and loved ones, ''everyone'' began helping Blue out of gratitude for helping them. This went a long way in Blue coming to terms with Hollow Note's abusive actions and eventually forgiving him for real.



* HurtingHero: Double-subverted. While he has endured many tragedies over the Ages, including the deaths of his parents and being exploited by an abusive and controlling record manager, Blue is more or less able to power through them because he has so many friends and loved ones who are willing to support him. However, it is implied that despite this, some trauma still lingers, especially in regards to his manager, "Colonel" Hollow Note, and his reluctance to forgive him caused Blue to see himself as a {{Hypocrite}} for not following the "King in Heaven"'s example in forgiveness. When he finally confesses this to his various friends and loved ones, ''everyone'' becomes extremely willing to help him recover from it out of gratitude for helping them, causing Blue to break down crying.



* InterspeciesRomance: He's not there yet, but Canteros believes that he and Prince Stoltur might become a couple in the future, due to their compatibility and closeness as friends.

** Eventually, once he finally confessed his traumas regarding [[TheSvengali "Colonel" Hollow Note]], his many good deeds are reciprocated as his friends, family, and other loved ones become extremely willing to help him recover psychologically, causing Blue to bring down crying.
---> '''Sola Mors:''' You've helped us so much, [[AffectionateNickname Bluey]]. ALL of us. Now it's our turn to help YOU.



* YouAreNotAlone: During his trial, he assures the Elternteil High Queen, Arvan, that she's not alone in grieving over lost loved ones, because there are others who suffered as much as she did. Unfortunately, this disgusted the xenophobic Elternteil Deer deities, but thankfully, Belyolen intervened before they could punish Blue for ''showing genuine kindness'' to their High Queen.
--> '''Blue Suede Heartstrings:''' All I'm tryin' to say is, ma'am, that you're not alone. You never were. All you need to do is open your eyes, and look at the people who love and adore you.

** Changeling Queen Ithomiini pretty much says this verbatim when he confesses to her his experiences with "Colonel" Hollow Note, revealing that [[HiddenDepths she had many times served as a therapist for emotionally and mentally traumatized employees/actors/film crew who had been mistreated by abusive directors and producers]].
---> '''Queen Ithomiini:''' Ah... you are not alone, Blue. Many of my crew have gone through the same thing. Some still bear trauma from the mistreatment of their previous handlers. I've been approached and confessed to about still bearing a grudge against their former bosses, and many times I've had to play therapist for them by listening to them and preventing them from acting out on their vengeful urges.\\
'''Blue Suede Heartstrings:''' ...Did it work?\\
'''Queen Ithomiini:''' Not always, darling... but even so, I still try to save whomever I can by giving them an ear and directing them to my studios.
** After finally confessing his traumas to his friends and loved ones, he would be told by Sola Mors that ''everyone'' he helped, including his own friends and family, are extremely willing to help him recover from said traumas. The sheer love and gratitude caused Blue to break down crying.


* DiscoDan: Subverted. His favorite form to take is that of a mortal unicorn Greaser, but while he was responsible for creating the Greaser movement in the Second Age, he himself has a lot of other interests outside of it. Music-wise, while he popularized Rock-and-Roll, he dabbled in a large variety of genres such as country, pop, jazz, gospel, and modern rock. His entry notes that his enduring popularity is what inspired the Fourth-Age Greaser movement, and it's heavily implied that he chooses to appear as a unicorn Greaser because he's far too humble to appear in his true form as an Alicorn god.

* TheAce: His entry notes that he is one of many "prodigy" deities born during Known History. As a mortal, despite being too poor to afford a formal education in music, Blue would reveal his talents when he created a fusion of various musical genres that would be defined as "Rock and Roll/Rockabilly", rocketing himself to global stardom. While he doesn't see himself as the "creator" of Rock and Roll, as there were other early pioneers of Rock and Roll that he respected/idolized, Blue would continue experimenting with different genres, such as jazz, pop, gospel, country, modern rock, and a bit of Oceanic music. He would even create an epic "classical rock" fusion after befriending Octavia Melody. After Ascending to godhood and becoming the Alicorn god of Music, he became very creative in how he uses it, such as stomping on surfaces so he could heal deaf people, and generating an energy-based stage with accompanying instruments so his music can have far-reaching effects. Because he's a "prodigy" deity, his physical and magical growth is accelerated at an abnormal rate compared to normal divines, which includes showing signs of growing a second pair of wings.

A canonized Codexverse drabble reveals that while he's primarily a guitar player, he picked up piano in order to "try something new" and became good at it, as his live piano cover of [[Music/Elton John Colton John]]'s song "Tiny Dancer" with an accompanying ballet performance by Prince Shamrock received thunderous applause.



* AlwaysIdenticalTwins: He and his older brother, Bossa Nova Heartstrings, are identical twins who have since [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Ascended to godhood]], and because of this, they look exactly the same [[IdenticalTwinIDTag except for a few differences]] - he has a dark red mane and tail made of musical energy, dark red wing gradients on his wings, and a skull-shaped guitar Cutie Mark surrounded by a halo of music notes and flanked by black wings. Meanwhile, Blue has a dark blue mane and tail made of musical energy, dark blue wing gradients on his wings, and a red, heart-shaped electric guitar Cutie Mark surrounded by a halo of music notes and flanked by white wings.

* ArmorPiercingResponse:
** After High Queen Arvan rants to him about not knowing what it's like to lose children and live with the guilt of not being able to prevent that loss, Blue replies that he in fact does know what she's talking about. This catches Arvan completely off-guard.
---> '''High Queen Arvan:''' Ever since Grogar encroached himself upon our lands, THOUSANDS of my people died at his hooves! Even my own divine children were vulnerable to his foul magic! Now I have to LIVE with the fact that no matter what I did, NOTHING could replace them! NOTHING could bring them back! [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse You cannot fathom how much I've MOURNED, interloper! What thousands of years of grief has DONE to me!]]\\
'''Blue Suede Heartstrings:''' You think I don't know, but... I do, ma'am.\\
'''High Queen Arvan:''' ...Wha-What?
** After Blue succeeds in tracking down a [[DeathSeeker suicidal]] Shamrock, Shamrock laments to his godfather about how he's lost everything, and that he's too cowardly to even [[DrivenToSuicide take his own life]] despite his overwhelming grief and bitterness towards it all. It takes Blue asking Shamrock if he haven't lost him yet that causes his godson to break down crying in his forelegs.
---> '''Prince Shamrock:''' Look at me... I... I'm too much of a coward to even...to even...\\
'''Blue Suede Heartstrings:''' You aren't a coward. You're brave. Quitting is easy, living? Livin' is harder than dyin'.\\
'''Prince Shamrock:''' W-Why? W-Why do I lose everything?\\
'''Blue Suede Heartstrings:''' You haven't lost me yet, have you?



** His passion and knowledge in music led to him befriending a few divine and mortal musicians. He was friends with the similarly innovative and talented Melody, who was dubbed "the Enduring Rockstar" in the Second Age. And in the Fourth Age, he befriended Vinyl Scratch, known as "DJ Pon-3" on-stage, and her friend, Octavia Melody, whom he worked with often to create an epic "classical rock" fusion. He also became close to Lyra Heartstrings and has supported her musical career, even blessing her relationship (and later marriage) with Bon Bon/Sweetie Drops, though in this case, it's because Lyra is rumored (and later confirmed InUniverse) that she is one of his mortal descendants through one of his deceased lovers.

And at some point, he met Amina, the Griffon goddess of Selfless Love and one of Amareros' daughters, during his globe-trotting and befriended her, with them often traveling together due to Amina being a fellow traveler.



** Ultimately, his experience with battling depression over his parents deaths later allowed him to help his godson, Prince Shamrock, deal with his own grief over losing his entire family to old age after the latter Ascended to Alicornhood.

* DiscoDan: Subverted. His favorite form to take is that of a mortal unicorn Greaser, but while he was responsible for creating the Greaser movement in the Second Age, he himself has a lot of other interests outside of it. Music-wise, while he popularized Rock-and-Roll, he dabbled in a large variety of genres such as country, pop, jazz, gospel, and modern rock. His entry notes that his enduring popularity is what inspired the Fourth-Age Greaser movement, and it's heavily implied that he chooses to appear as a unicorn Greaser because he's far too humble to appear in his true form as an Alicorn god.



* EmbarrassingNickname: While being called "the King [of Music/Rock and Roll]" is normally a pretty awesome feat, he ''hated'' it even before [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Ascending]] because, due to being devoutly religious, he believes in a higher power that deserves the title as "the King" far more than he does. Blue also doesn't see himself as the "inventor" of Rock and Roll as many people assume, and believes the title of "the King of Rock and Roll" should go to people like [[Music/FatsDomino Black Domino]], whom Blue idolizes and sees as the superior singer/performer. However, he's generally nice about it and will kindly remind people not to call him "the King" if they do so.

This is later deconstructed as Blue would later confess to Changeling Queen Ithomiini that he ''wanted'' to continue hating Hollow Note for what he did, but feels conflicted over this because he doesn't want to lose himself into his anger again, and hates himself for not fully following the "King in Heaven"'s example in forgiving others.

** "Colonel" Hollow Note's exploitation and abuse of him left Blue with some lingering emotional trauma, being genuinely infuriated whenever managers exploit and abuse their clients, as his interactions with Svengallop and Shamrock's corrupt ballet manager showed. However, Blue feels reluctant to forgive Hollow Note because of the latter's actions, something he hates himself for since in his mind, this means he's a {{Hypocrite}} for being so forgiving to others yet he couldn't bring himself to forgive one stallion who particularly wronged him. Changeling Queen Ithomiini assures him that he's not a hypocrite as forgiving someone for great wrongs can take time, though she does remind him that eventually, he still has to learn when to let go in order to avoid falsely associating good managers with Hollow Note.



* GodIsFlawed: As part of his HiddenDepths, he genuinely believes that all deities are flawed, as he had witnessed even the "kindest" gods and goddesses (in his words) [[HolierThanThou put themselves on a pedestal and act like they know better than others because of their power and divinity]]. Given his humble nature, this includes himself - despite his humility and kindness, he tends to take the deaths of those close to him really hard, and it's implied that he is actually more emotional and hotheaded than is suggested by his calm and mellow demeanor, as when he's ''really'' pissed off, he shows a [[HotBlooded fiery sort of anger]] in contrast to the TranquilFury he usually displays. However, he also believes that even deities have the power to improve themselves and stay good no matter what, even if they were born "good" or "bad". This is why he continues worshiping the "King in Heaven" despite knowing his god is likely flawed, too, because if someone like the King can try to stay good despite his flaws, then that means he and others can do the same thing.

** Despite his forgiving nature, he feels unwilling to forgive his Second-Age record manager, [[TheSvengali "Colonel" Hollow Note]], for exploiting and abusing him during almost his entire music career. Blue feels bad about this because the "King in Heaven" he worships preaches forgiveness, and he sees himself as "a failure and a hypocrite" for not practicing this virtue in this case. Changeling Queen Ithomiini has to assure him that yes, eventually he has to let go of Hollow Note's memory, but his feelings towards his ex-manager are understandable because something as bad as Hollow Note's abuse isn't so easily forgiven.

By stark contrast, Elvis didn't adopt the same restraint, causing him to grow really fat later in his life.
* HolierThanThou: Defied. Despite being a devoutly religious stallion - or perhaps because of it - he remains incredibly humble and kind. As he points out to the Poenan goddess Lamperielpida, he doesn't want to act "high and mighty" and brag about his faith because it will disappoint/offend both his (deceased) parents, who raised him well, and the "King in Heaven", the very god he worships. Instead, he only preaches the values and examples shown by the "King in Heaven".

He's also an AllLovingHero in that he respects and befriends Ponies from all three tribes, and extended his hoof to non-Pony races when they emerged after the Second Age ended, despite imposed tribal/racial barriers. In addition, Blue is quite humble, never seeking validation or glory for his accomplishments, believing that much of his fame should go to more deserving individuals, and sees himself as being no different than the mortals he sings for. It's a major reason why he often [[GodInHumanForm disguises himself as a mortal]]. All of these factors directly contribute to his reputation as a beloved celebrity, and it's because of this that knowledge of him survived past the Second Age... however, [[BewareTheNiceOnes it is not advisable to anger him]], as he is an ancient and powerful Alicorn god underneath his unassuming appearances.

In Blue's opinion, what makes music "good" is if the creators put all of their heart and soul into their work. This came from his own experiences, where an increasingly corrupt Second-Age music industry influenced him from making music solely because he enjoyed it to making music just to earn some cash, and he himself was trapped under the hoof of an exploitative record manager, "Colonel" Hollow Note (until Bossa Nova's manipulations unwittingly set him free, that is). When he heard of how Svengallop treated Coloratura, he ''went off'' on the manager by giving him a furious and very thorough dressing-down, before making good on his threat to have him blacklisted from ''the entire music industry''.

He also joined [[MamaBear Clover]] in giving Shamrock's corrupt ballet manager in giving a thorough, hour-long chewing-out after discovering that [[AdultFear said manager was using his godson's easily frightened nature to exploit and abuse him]]. However, it's deconstructed in that his anger regarding this particular issue has left Blue with a bit of self-loathing, as his traumas regarding Hollow Note had left him reluctant to forgive his deceased former manager, causing Blue to see himself as a hypocrite for not following the "King in Heaven"'s example in forgiveness.

** He forgave his older twin brother, Bossa Nova, for manipulating his life, and encouraged him to go back home and make amends with his adoptive family, whom Bossa Nova had been completely neglecting up to that point. By Blue's admission, he ''was'' mad at his brother, but chose to forgive him because Bossa Nova truly meant well and he did apologize for his meddling... not to mention that it was because of Bossa Nova that he was able to leave behind an increasingly corrupt music industry in the first place.

Even after Hollow Note's death and the end of the Second Age, Blue still couldn't bring himself to forgive him because his manager exploited, controlled, and manipulated him throughout almost his entire music career, and would have remained under Hollow Note's hoof for the rest of his life had Bossa Nova not meddled with things. This gave Blue some self-loathing and caused him to see himself as "a failure and a hypocrite" for not following the "King in Heaven"'s example in forgiveness. Changeling Queen Ithomiini sympathizes with him because many of her employees/actors/filming crew had gone through the same thing, but reminds him that clinging to Hollow Note's memory would only allow Blue to continue being controlled by his manager in some way.

Changeling Queen Ithomiini finds his reasons for his reluctance to forgive [[TheSvengali "Colonel" Hollow Note]] very sympathetic, because many of her employees/actors/filming crew had gone through similar experiences. She even assures Blue that his feelings are understandable and valid, because it's hard to forgive someone who exploited and abused them. However, Ithomiini reminds Blue that he still has to learn when to let go eventually, because not all record managers are like Hollow Note, "just like all directors are not like Colton Marentino".



** Another incident that comes close to the incident with Hollowed Note is his meeting with Svengallop, the controlling, {{Jerkass}} manager of popstar Countess Coloratura. While Blue doesn't beat him up, he is still furious enough that he outright ''yells'' at Svengallop for his actions, and later makes good on his threat to have the stallion blacklisted from the entire music industry. Even Applejack was shocked after seeing the normally mellow Blue get so worked up.



** After it was discovered that his godson Shamrock's manager was exploiting and abusing him, Blue joined [[MamaBear Shamrock's mother Clover]] in spending an our giving the corrupt manager a thorough chewing out.

** His deliverance of a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to his then-record manager, "Colonel" Hollow Note. While "The Colonel" had it coming for exploiting and controlling Blue the way he did, it's still treated seriously as a grieving and extremely stressed Blue lost control of himself during a heated argument, and lashed out in a fit of rage. Once his anger cooled down, Blue was so horrified with what he had done that he fled the scene out of guilt, and was later found by Record Beat crying and praying to the "King in Heaven" for forgiveness.

** Canonized drabbles imply that Blue still has lingering trauma from dealing with Hollow Note, and sees himself as a {{Hypocrite}} for being reluctant to forgive his record manager despite the "King in Heaven" preaching forgiveness. Changeling Queen Ithomiini reminds him that while his feelings are valid, since Hollow Note's actions cannot be easily forgiven, Blue still has to learn when to let go because not all record managers are exploitative and abusive, "just like all directors are not like Colton Marentino". Ithomiini additionally points out that by clinging to Hollow Note's memory, even subconsciously, Blue continues to let himself be controlled by his manager even though he's dead.



* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: It's implied that Luminiferous gave him a "pep-talk" of this nature, seeing that Blue had hit an all-time low and really needed some cheering-up. This motivated Blue to quit his job as a career musician and [[WalkingTheEarth travel the world]] to perform on his own terms, bringing joy and hope with his music even after he became an Alicorn.

** After befriending famous popstar Countess Coloratura and learning how she was treated by her manager, [[TheSvengali Svengallop]], Blue was so ''enraged'' that he gave Svengallop a very thorough and angry dressing-down, before making good on his threat to have Svengallop blacklisted and excommunicated from the entire music industry. This left Applejack/Veritas, who witnessed the whole thing, rather shocked.
---> '''Applejack/Veritas''' ...Ah don't think Ah've seen Blue this angry before.



** He hates it when music is "cheapened", as songs made purely for profit sound flat and dead, with absolutely nothing enjoyable about them at all. In Blue's opinion, what makes music "good" is if the creators put all of their heart and soul into their work. This came from his own experiences, where an increasingly corrupt Second-Age music industry influenced him from making music solely because he enjoyed it to making music just to earn some cash, and he himself was trapped under the hoof of an exploitative record manager nicknamed "The Colonel" (until Bossa Nova's manipulations unwittingly set him free, that is).

** On the other hand, the color blue represents depression, sadness, emotional instability, and inability to change. Blue often takes it very hard whenever he loses someone close to him, such as his parents and his first coltfriend/husband, Record Beat, and often needs to be comforted by Bossa Nova, who is more accepting of Death and willing to let go. In fact, the deaths of his parents were what started his slow emotional decline into depression and grief, creating self-destructive habits like [[BigEater stress-eating]] (until a [[AcidRefluxNightmare food-fueled nightmare]] forced him to stop). And after [[TraumaCongaLine enduring one tragedy and bad experience too many]], he had a brief lapse in anger when he ''[[RageBreakingPoint snapped]]'' during a heated argument with his exploitative record manager, and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat him up]] for controlling him throughout his entire career.

Blue later found out, and admits that while he ''was'' mad at Bossa Nova for manipulating his life, he forgave him since Bossa Nova truly didn't mean any harm and apologized for it. He also acknowledged that had his brother not intervened, he still would've been stuck under "The Colonel"'s hoof all those years ago, which both horrified and enraged Bossa Nova.



** Despite being a massively popular celebrity in the early Second Age (with all the vices that entails), he still tried keeping true to his values and staying humble and compassionate even as the music/movie industries of the Age were becoming increasingly corrupt. However, with the level of mental and emotional stress he was going through at the time, even he would end up slipping, as he would snap and beat up his exploitative record manager during a heated argument. Thus, he needed help from others such as Luminiferous to truly break free from the cycle, which led to him eventually Ascending to godhood after meeting the Alicorn god of Potential.

** Despite ''blowing up'' on Svengallop, Countess Coloratura's then-manager, Blue doesn't beat him up, instead following through with his threat to have him blacklisted from the entire music industry. Presumably, he remembered the last time he really lost control of his temper and restrained himself for everyone's sake.


* DoNotCallMePaul: Inverted. Much like Elvis Presley, [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed the person he was based on]], he ''hated'' [[EmbarrassingNickname being called "the King"]] because, due to his religious upbringing, he believes that there's a higher power (speculated to be the god Equus) who's ''far'' more deserving of being called "the King". He also hated being called "the King [of Music/Rock and Roll]" because he doesn't see himself as an "inventor" of the Rock and Roll genre as many people believe; he just merely took inspiration from Earth pony music and created his own style. In fact, he believes there are many Earth pony musicians who (in his mind) could sing better than him, such as Black Domino, whom he [[HeroWorship idolized]].

--> '''Melody (Second Age):''' ...Maybe this is how Blue feels whenever we call him 'The King of Music'...



* EmbarrassingNickname: While being called "the King [of Music/Rock and Roll]" is normally a pretty awesome feat, he ''hated'' it even before [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Ascending]] because, due to being devoutly religious, he believes in a higher power that deserves the title as "the King" far more than he does. Blue also doesn't see himself as the "inventor" of Rock and Roll as many people assume, and believes the title of "the King of Rock and Roll" should go to people like [[Music/FatsDomino Black Domino]], whom Blue idolizes and sees as the superior singer/performer. However, he's generally nice about it and will kindly remind people not to call him "the King" if they do so.

* BigEater: Justified and deconstructed. Blue had a huge appetite when he was a mortal, which was believed to have stemmed from living in poverty as a colt, and was infamous for it in-universe. However, his appetite started turning into unhealthy stress-eating after he went through a series of personal tragedies/hardships in his life, including the deaths of his parents and his developing disillusionment with the music/movie industries in general. After having [[AcidRefluxNightmare a food-fueled nightmare]] in which he became grossly fat in his old age, Blue decided to cut down on his eating significantly, resulting in him retaining his handsomeness by the time he met Luminiferous. By stark contrast, Music/ElvisPresley, Blue's character inspiration, did not develop the same restraint in real life and became grossly fat as a consequence. Hilariously, some people in the Second Age have theorized him to be a former ''god'' who was a BigEater that constantly devoured populated worlds ala ComicBook/{{Galactus}}, until he was turned into an amnesiac mortal as punishment.

** His passion and knowledge in music led to him befriending a few divine and mortal musicians. He was friends with the similarly innovative and talented Melody, who was dubbed "the Enduring Rockstar" in the Second Age. And in the Fourth Age, he befriended Vinyl Scratch, known as "DJ Pon-3" on-stage, and her friend, Octavia Melody, whom he worked with often to create an epic "classical rock" fusion.

* ButNotTooBlack: In-universe example.

This pissed off Blue something fierce, as he idolized Black Domino and his music, and sees the latter as the far better singer compared to himself.

He was received with thunderous applause, and he realized that acting didn't feel so bad after all. Befriending Changeling Queen Ithomiini helped him get over most of his issues, as he produced critically-acclaimed soundtracks for her movies and even acted in some movies that were very well-received.

The other reason behind his refusal is that [[ImpracticallyFancyOutfit he doesn't want to wear royal regalia that turn out to be uncomfortable and itchy]].



* TheHeart: A large factor in why he became such a popular celebrity in the Second Age is because of his humility and compassion towards everyone, especially his fans. It was even joked in-universe during that time that he was so famous, he could potentially end squabbles and conflicts just by showing up. True to form, after Ascending to godhood, he would work on resolving the boiling tensions left behind by crises of the Second Age, and would continue doing so well into the Fourth Age.

* HopeBringer: While it's debated in-universe on what he did during the "Void Aeon" event, many believe that he continued performing to inspire hope among mortal sapientkind, and protected the innocent (especially his fans) from the various monsters that sprung up during the conflict. As the god of Music, he even has this trope as a power, as he can play music to inspire joy and hope in his listeners. It also has the effect of dispelling the effects of spells that operate through fear and hatred.

to:

* HolierThanThou: Defied. Despite being a devoutly religious stallion - or perhaps because of it - he remains incredibly humble and kind. As he points out to the Poenan goddess Lamperielpida, he doesn't want to act "high and mighty" and brag about his faith because it will disappoint/offend both his (deceased) parents, who raised him well, and the "King in Heaven", the very god he worships. Instead, he only preaches the values and examples shown by the "King in Heaven".

** In-universe, he notes the sheer irony of himself, a devoutly religious stallion, Ascending to godhood and becoming part of the "higher power" he revered since foalhood.

* JerkassGods: Averted. One in-universe backstory theory depicted him as this, ala ComicBook/{{Galactus}}. According to that backstory, he was once an apathetic and selfish god who constantly ate populated worlds, so he was transformed/reincarnated into an amnesiac mortal and forced to live on Equus as punishment. He gradually TookALevelInKindness after coming into frequent contact with [[MoralityChain a single Pony mother and her young son]], causing him to appreciate his fellow mortals, and [[IChooseToStay ultimately chose to stay on Equus even after his memories were restored]]. The reality is that Blue is very humble and compassionate, and only appears in his true form as an Alicorn god when it's absolutely necessary.

** In the Third Age, he became the mentor of sisters Melody, Muse, Jazzy, and Rocky after they caught his attention through their musical talents, leading to the quartet becoming extremely proficient in music. It is believed in-universe that he Ascended Melody, Muse, and Jazzy to demi-godhood with his own Primordial Quintessence during the Third Age's end when they tried defending their country, Mousikós, together from its enemies, the Oceanaiads. After the Oceanaiads were finally defeated and the existence of Mousikós was finally revealed to the global public, both Blue and other benevolent deities took interest in training Muse and Jazzy (who became Princesses Mese and Nete respectively) so they could finally Ascend to true godhood like Melody (now Queen Aoide)

* MysteriousPast: Due to being born very early in the Second Age, his origins have been subjected to ambiguity in-universe - he's speculated to be either [[HalfHumanHybrid a distant descendant of Ponies sired by "Visitors]] (especially by the Celestial Ponies), a [[RebelPrince former royal who discarded his status]], or an Ascended demi-divine son of Amareros, the Love Primeval. One theorized backstory in particular depicted him as an apathetic and selfish god who was transformed/reincarnated into a amnesiac mortal and forced to live on Equus as punishment for [[ComicBook/{{Galactus}} constantly eating populated worlds]]. He gradually grew to care for his fellow mortals after coming into frequent contact with a single Pony mother and her young son, [[IChooseToStay and chose to stay on Equus despite having his memories restored]]. Princess Stitching Time notes that this backstory was published as a ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' issue by [[Creator/MarvelComics Mare-vel Comics]]. It's subverted in that his ''true'' origin consists of him being born a mortal unicorn, becoming a famous musician, and then later becoming a travelling performer who eventually Ascended to godhood through his good deeds.

** It's believed in-universe that during the Third-Age cataclysmic war with the Oceanaiads that destroyed Mousikós, he was responsible for Ascending sisters Melody, Muse, and Jazzy to demi-Alicornhood by using his own Primordial Quintessence. Either that or the sisters accidentally absorbed the arcane energies being unleashed as they protected their island home.

* RealMenLoveJesus: Like his [[Music/ElvisPresley character inspiration]], Blue had a religious upbringing despite his family's poor financial status, [[UpbringingMakesTheHero which influenced him to become the kindhearted and humble stallion he is today]]. Part of the reason why he hated being called "the King [of Music/Rock and Roll]" is because he believes in a higher power (speculated to be the ancient god Equus) that's ''far'' more deserving of the title. The other reason is that in his mind, his [[HeroWorship idol]], Black Domino, is the "true" King of Rock and Roll, having been one of the first pioneers of the genre in the early Second Age. Blue would eventually [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Ascend to godhood]] and become the Alicorn god of Music and Humility after doing a lot of good deeds during his globe-trotting, but he never once disavowed his religious beliefs, and in fact saw his own Ascension as a huge {{Irony}} due to said beliefs. A Codexverse quote reveals that [[HiddenDepths he knows that the "King in Heaven" he worships is likely flawed, but still continues to worship him anyway because he is inspired by him to keep improving himself even when he is tempted by sin]].
* ReallyGetsAround: Downplayed. While his entry notes that he did sleep with [[BiTheWay mares and stallions]] over the course of Known History, he was completely loving and faithful to all of his partners, and the numbers of relationships he had were notably few compared to those held by other gods and goddesses. At least one of his relationships resulted in the birth of a Fourth-Age mortal demi-divine descendant, Lyra Heartstrings, who would become a musician just like him. Other descendants include Flash Sentry, Roneo, and Gladstone, though they're un-confirmed in-universe. Bossa Nova's entry reveals the identity of one of his partners - Record Beat, a unicorn DJ and stallion who had a crush on Blue for a while, and later became Blue's first coltfriend/husband after Bossa Nova subtly directed him to his younger twin brother in a well-meaning attempt to help Blue recover from his parents' deaths.

* ReclusiveArtist: A narrowly averted in-universe example. After going through a few personal tragedies and experiencing great disillusionment/disgust with the corruption and hubris in the music/movie industries, he would hit an all-time low by the time he recorded the song "(You're the) Devil in Disguise". He would have succeeded in quitting music and disappearing from the limelight forever had he not encountered Luminiferous, which "[[ForWantOfANail changed the course of history]]" as the meeting set off a chain of events that led to him [[DeityOfHumanOrigin becoming an Alicorn]].

* RightlySelfRighteous: Defied and averted. A combination of benevolent religious examples and good upraising by his loving parents taught and influenced him to be kind, humble, and friendly to everyone, and people not doing so upsets him. When Lamperielpida accuses him of not preaching about the "King of Heaven" he claims to worship, Blue points out that acting "[[HolierThanThou high and mighty]]" about his faith would disappoint/offend his parents and his god because that's not what they wanted him to be. He then proceeds to turn things around with an angry TheReasonYouSuckSpeech that exposes Lamperielpida's religious hypocrisy and moral blindness.



* SouthernGentleman: He was born in southern Ponyland during the early Second Age, with the Southern accent to match. Despite the prevalent tribalism as well as the hubris and corruption that afflicted the music/movie industries at the time, he remained a kind-hearted and [[HumbleHero humble]] stallion who is polite and [[AllLovingHero friendly to almost everyone he meets]]. Even [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Ascending to Alicornhood]] didn't stop him from retaining his manners. When Prince Written Word questioned his beliefs and asked him why he continues to worship the "King in Heaven" despite knowing his god is likely [[GodIsFlawed flawed]], Blue doesn't get angry over it and gives him a reasonable and respectful answer.

* TragicStillbirth: He was originally the younger of identical twins, but his older brother came out stillborn, just like what happened to Elvis' older twin brother, Jesse Garon Presley. While he doesn't let his loss take over his life completely, it's implied (and believed in-universe) that Blue is still affected by it in some way, as he started developing a brotherly fondness for kids and has been seen talking with those who lost beloved family members and are still grieving over it, such as Prince Written Word, who lost his mortal pegasus mother to old age.

However, in an ironic twist, Bossa Nova is still "alive" despite having had died, as he was once a spirit who became a psychopomp working for [[NonIronicClown Gavisus Manes]], and then Ascended to godhood by doing good deeds. Meeting Bossa Nova back in the Second Age initially overwhelmed Blue so much that he [[{{Fainting}} fainted]], though they would become close after a rocky start.



* TraumaCongaLine: This happened in his adulthood pre-Ascension. First, he lost his mother then his father, starting his slow emotional decline. He does meet and fall in love with Record Beat, a unicorn stallion and DJ, giving him the emotional support he needed, but since same-sex relationships were social taboos at the time, they faced public disgust for getting together. His record manager at the time, "The Colonel", also used his affair with Record Beat as blackmail to exploit and control him. Then he watched as the music/movie industries grew increasingly corrupt with hubris and other excesses, influencing some of his friends, associates, and managers to become decadent and abusive. Then his own music was "cheapened" for the sake of profits. Then he heard news that a beloved and kind-hearted reverend (implied to be the expy/ersatz of UsefulNotes/MartinLutherKingJr) was publicly assassinated for encouraging and preaching racial/tribal co-existence. These tragedies pushed the grieving, emotionally stressed Blue to his absolute breaking point, and around the time he recorded the song, "(You're the) Devil in Disguise", he got in a heated argument with "The Colonel" that ended with Blue ''[[RageBreakingPoint snapping]]'' and delivering his manager a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown for controlling his entire career. But once his anger cooled, he [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone was horrified with what he had done]] and quickly fled back to his house, where Record Beat found him crying and fervently praying to the "King in Heaven" for forgiveness. He felt so depressed afterwards that he planned to quit music and withdraw from the limelight forever when he met Luminiferous, who cheered him up and set him on the path of obtaining godhood. It's revealed that Bossa Nova, Blue's older twin brother, was responsible for starting the TraumaCongaLine in the first place, as he was trying to help Blue recover from his parents' deaths by subtly directing him to Record Beat. Blue later found out, and admits that while he ''was'' mad at Bossa Nova for manipulating his life, he forgave him since Bossa Nova truly didn't mean any harm and apologized for it. He also acknowledged that had his brother not intervened, he still would've been stuck under "The Colonel"'s hoof all those years ago, which both horrified and enraged Bossa Nova.
* TwinTelepathy: It's believed in-universe that being twins gave him and Bossa Nova a psychic, empathic connection that survived even beyond Bossa Nova's stillbirth, allowing them to sense what the other is feeling, though it's also noted that their bond could develop into something more if either one of them decides to improve on it. Bossa Nova calls their bond his "brother's instinct". If either one of them is hurt, [[{{Synchronization}} the other will feel his pain]], something that happened when a Poenan deity assaulted Blue during the Poenan Pantheon's attack on Ponyville for housing repentant/redeemed members of Sunnytown.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: While he had the same [[BigEater huge appetite]] as Music/ElvisPresley did, he would significantly cut down on his eating habits after having [[AcidRefluxNightmare a food-fueled nightmare]] about becoming grossly fat in his old age, resulting in him retaining his handsomeness by the time he Ascended. By stark contrast, Elvis didn't adopt the same restraint, causing him to grow really fat later in his life.
* AdaptationalBadass: Both Blue and his character inspiration, Music/ElvisPresley, are musicians who are also former soldiers who served during World War II. Unlike Elvis, however, Blue would meet [[BigGood Luminiferous]] during a very low point in his life, which motivates him to quit his job as a career musician and travel around the world, doing good deeds until he [[DeityOfHumanOrigin became an Alicorn god of Music and Humility]] (something he sees as ironic due to his religious background).

However, while Elvis continues to be remembered as an influential figure in the development of both rock-and-roll and modern rock, he's also remembered for his degrading career and obesity in his later years, ending with a rather UndignifiedDeath.

The [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre pep-talk]] he received from Luminiferous motivated Blue to quit his job as a career musician and travel around the world, doing good deeds until he [[DeityOfHumanOrigin became the Alicorn god of Music and Humility]] (something he sees as ironic due to his religious background).
