Ponyville


    open/close all folders 

    General 
  • Doom Magnet: Like in canon, it has been the site of various disasters and catastrophes.
  • Weirdness Magnet: Has been called such in Silver Bane's entry. While it is also a Doom Magnet for being the site of various disasters and catastrophes, Ponyville has attracted both mortal and divine individuals. A few demi-Alicorn Princes from the Terran Empire had been spotted there, Terraton of the Tauren Giant Pantheon and Changeling Queen Supia had traveled there on a diplomatic meeting, and even Silver Bane was recently spotted there with his young adoptive daughter, Friede.

    Princess Amicitia Sparkle Equestria, the Spark of Friendship/Princess Twilight Sparkle, the Bearer of Magic 
See her folder entry here.

    Applejack, the Bearer of Honesty

    Fluttershy Posey, the Redeemer of the Serpent/Queen Gaia Posey the First, the Chosen Redeemer 
See her folder entry here.

    Rainbow Dash, the Bearer of Loyalty 
The Element of Loyalty and a member of the Mane Six. While Dash has thought herself to be just an exceptional pegasus mare, she's actually a Rainbow Pony, capable of controlling light, energy, and rainbows. She remains largely ignorant of her heritage despite her many accomplishments, and it's for this reason that Luminiferous, the Alicorn god of Potential and Perfection, has developed an interest in her.

Like her canon incarnation, Dash is an avowed fan of Daring Do and faithfully reads her novels, even though they're all embellished versions of her actual adventures.
  • Achievements in Ignorance: Despite being a Rainbow Pony who accomplished much with her speed and Sonic Rainbooms, Dash remains ignorant of the other powers her kind tends to have, such as light powers, energy and rainbow manipulation, and the fabled "Rainbow Warp". Luminiferous is interested in bringing out her full potential so she could unlock and perform the last ability mentioned.
  • Adaptational Badass:
    • While she's already a badass in canon, Dash was an incredibly fast pegasus who could perform the Sonic Rainboom. Here, her abilities were justified with her being a Rainbow Pony, a type of sub-pony that could manipulate light, energy, and rainbows (though she remains completely unaware of her full potential).
    • She is also worthy of wielding Mjolnir during the battle with the Shadowed Ones, gaining Mjolna's powers.
  • Broken Pedestal: Her feelings towards her former idol, ex-Wonderbolt Wind Rider, are expanded here - when she learned that Wind Rider joined the Scions of Hurricane so soon after trying to ruin her life, she became absolutely furious and vowed to give him a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown for his actions. This forced her friends to calm her down before she did anything rash.
    Rainbow Dash: He... joined the Scions? That... that DICKWAD who nearly RUINED MY LIFE joined the MOTHERBUCKING SCIONS?! URRRAAAAAAGH, I'M GONNA KILL HIM! I'M GONNA TRASH HIM SO HARD HE'LL WISH HE WAS NEVER BORN!
  • The Chosen One: She's potentially 'They Who Will Break Cycles', one of three creatures required to break the Cycle. While there are many possibilities, she and Yearling are the closest.
  • Everything's Better with Rainbows: In canon, she's a normal pegasus who happened to be born with rainbow-colored hair. Here, she's a Rainbow Pony, which sprung from a mutation that allows them to control light, energy, and rainbows. Also not in the show, her fur has a somewhat prismatic quality.
  • Faster-Than-Light Travel: It's been fabled that Rainbow Ponies can perform the Rainbow Warp, which allows them to travel to other planets. Luminiferous wants to bring out Dash's potential so she could perform this ability, due to her inherent potential to do so.
  • Mutants: Is a Rainbow Pony, a sub type of ponies with a genetic mutation that allows them to control light, energy, and rainbows and tends to make them inherently gifted in speed.

    Rarity, the Bearer of Generosity 
The Element of Generosity and a member of the Mane Six.
  • Adaptational Badass: It's mentioned that she managed to fight the deranged Deinopis, using nothing but her finely-honed telekinesis. It's rather notable in that Deinopis is one of many Semi-Divine Royal Changeling daughters of Empress Blackrose, and a member of one of her family's older Spawn generations.
  • Adaptation Expansion: Her crush on Blueblood. Here, it's because she was inspired by the tales of Gleaming Shield and Radiant Primrose's Reincarnation Romance.
  • Adult Fear:
    • After Twilight and Spike were nearly assassinated by the pro-unicorn Children of Platinum faction, only to be saved by Blueblood's intervention, Rarity apparently hugged them both, being terrified out of her mind by the fact that she nearly lost two of her best friends to political conflict.
    • She also had a moment of this when Button Mash revealed what would happen to Sweetie Bell if he lost the "game" against CreepEntity513, due to its intentions of targeting the Cutie Mark Crusaders after potentially killing Button Mash. It was noted that Rarity was extremely worried, but also relieved that her younger sister was spared a horrible fate.
  • Broken Pedestal: Like in canon, she had a crush on Prince Blueblood, inspired by the romantic tales of Gleaming Shield and Radiant Primrose... only to learn that he's a completely boorish Prince Charmless who treated her terribly when they first met at the Grand Galloping Gala. However, her opinion of him would be restored after Blueblood personally explained his reasons for his behavior and apologized, as well as saving Twilight and Spike from an assassination attempt by the tribalist Children of Platinum faction.
  • Mind over Matter: Possesses unicorn telekinesis. It's stated in Changeling Queen Deinopis's profile that Rarity's fine grasp of her telekinetic magic is rather impressive, having worked in the Equestrian fashion industry; apparently she even battled Deinopis at one point, the latter possessing fine telekinesis herself due to being an insane puppeteer.
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: Like in canon, she saw Blueblood as the Prince Charming she wanted to marry, only to see firsthand that he falls severely short of her expectations. However, Blueblood redeems himself in her eyes by explaining his behavior and apologizing for it, and saving both Twilight and Spike from being assassinated by pro-unicorn tribalists.
  • Weak, but Skilled: It's stated in Deinopis's profile that Rarity has a very fine grasp of her telekinesis, likely due to her fashion-making skills, implying that while she's not an overtly powerful unicorn and while she lacks a large range of spells, her advanced telekinesis still makes her a capable fighter on her own.

    Pinkie Pie, the Bearer of Laughter 
The Element of Laughter and a member of the Mane Six.
  • Semi-Divine: Her Toon Physics and Hammer Space powers are revealed to be due to being a "Party Pony", a mutated species of Pony who are distant descendants of Pakak and his divine twin daughters, Arlequin and Katharsis. Downplayed, however, as the divine blood is very diluted by this point.

    Spike the Dragon 
A young dragon who's Twilight Sparkle's younger adoptive brother and assistant.
  • Adaptational Badass: In canon, his dragon powers never extended beyond the typical Breath Weapon and the "message breath" to Celestia. Here, being an worthy Dragon Lord who abdicated despite his short reign, gave him powers that turned him into a Lightning Bruiser.
  • Breath Weapon: As per standard for being a dragon.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Just like any other worthy Dragon Lord, he has the power of gods despite being 100% mortal when wielding his Dragon Lord Regalia.
  • Energy Absorption: Reinvents the Zero Point Breakthrough to have it be able to absorb enemy dragonfire and make it his own.
  • Famous Ancestor: Is a descendant of Prince Arcaniss aka G1 Spike. One time, he met him face to face and subsequently fainted out of shock.
  • Happily Adopted: By Twilight Sparkle, who serves as his Cool Big Sis. Her mother, Twilight Velvet, would also welcome Spike into the family despite him being a dragon, and would go after anyone who shows anti-Dragon racism towards him.
  • HUD: His Empyrean Eye, part of his Dragon Lord Regalia. It gauges his various flame outputs from his mouth, hands, and feet.
  • An Ice Person: Zero Point Breakthrough: First edition. He traps his foe in ice.
  • Playing with Fire: Using his pair of dragonfire gauntlets called Imperious Terra, he's able to blast dragonfire and Primordial Quintessence.
  • Summon to Hand: Can call his Dragon Lord Regalia to him at will.
  • Super Mode: His Dragon Lord Regalia, a pair of dragonfire gauntlets called Imperious Terra, meaning "Heaven and Earth" in the most accurate Equestrian Ponish translation. It allows him to fight at high speeds while making his powers even more dangerous. While usually worthy Dragon Lords can use it like an everyday tool, his young age meant that he can't channel it for long without causing permanent damage to his body. Arcaniss had to put a time limiter on it, resulting in this trope.
  • Spirit Advisor: As an ex-Dragon Lord, he can call upon the assistance of past Dragon Lords of the Equestrian Dragonflight via the stored "time".
  • Teleportation: Implied. His "message breath" to Celestia can be used to teleport anything to anywhere of his choosing. As of present day, it's just theory and speculation.
  • You Are in Command Now: He would one day wield the Bloodstone Scepter a second time due to an incident that challenged Dragon Lord Ember's rule of the Equestrian Dragonflight. He would return it to her anyway.

    Zecora, the Ghost of Everfree 

Character: Heroic

Alignment: Neutral Good

Type: Medicinemare/Alchemist/Cleric/Resistance Leader

Faction: Principalities of Equestria/Everfree Resistance (Leader)

"Do not underestimate me, if you beasts choose to enter Everfree. The ponies here are protected by many things, while your fate the forest sings."

  • Badass Family: She became an effective and dangerous rebel leader during the Storm King Crisis. Her cousin is Mlinzi is a Captain of the Dusk Guard and a very powerful Virgasus.
  • The Magnificent: "Zecora, the Ghost of Everfree", thanks to her in-depth knowledge, alchemy, and fighting skills that make her seem like a "ghost" to her enemies.
  • Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: She was initially mistaken for a malevolent witch due to their unfamiliarity with her, her practice of alchemy, and her (to them) overall strange behavior.
  • Red Baron: She's known as "The Ghost of Everfree" due to how terrifying she is with her alchemy skills and territorial knowledge of the Everfree forest.

    Apple Bloom 
The younger sister of Applejack, who is an Equestrian hero and the Element Bearer of Honesty.
  • Adult Fear: She wandered away from a pre-Ascendant Twilight Sparkle while they were in the Everfree Forest helping Zecora, because curiosity made her follow the strange-looking filly that was watching her, and ended up in a seemingly happy town full of strangers. Said town turned out to be a scorched patch of overgrown ruins when she discovered Ruby Heart's burnt skeleton in the fire place, and the ponies she met were revealed to be fanatical zombies who wanted to "protect" her from Cutie Pox. She was also lucky not to be yelled at by Twilight, who would've been understandably angry with her wandering off, but Twilight had been so relieved to find her friend's younger sister was safe that she couldn't be mad for long.
  • Birds of a Feather: She would be seen with Prince Steel Barricade, Golden Scepter's eleventh demi-divine son, as both of them have an affinity for techonology. Steel Barricade is greatly interested in her growing potential in machine invention and repair.
  • Break the Cutie: She was so traumatized by her venture in Sunnytown and her near-death experience that it took a while for her to recover and understand what happened.
  • Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: In her conversation with the Karmic god Pakak, Apple Bloom had a hard time understanding why the ponies of Sunnytown killed Ruby Heart for getting a Cutie Mark, when she didn't even do anything wrong. Pakak explained to her that they let fear of Cutie Pox rule their hearts, which later motivated them to do cruel and hateful things in the name of protecting those close to them.
  • Harmful to Minors: She ended up in a seemingly happy town in the middle of the Everfree Forest after she wandered away from Twilight to follow Ruby Heart's ghost, and the townsponies made her feel welcome... until she found Ruby's burnt skeleton in the fireplace of an abandoned house. The townsponies then revealed themselves to be cursed zombies and tried killing her to "protect" her from Cutie Pox, but she barely escaped thanks to interference from Mitta, who prevented the zombies from coming after her, and Ruby Heart, who teleported Apple Bloom to the edge of Everfree. As a result of the horrific experience, Apple Bloom took a while to recover from her trauma.

    Lyra Heartstrings 
The sweetheart of Bon Bon, also known as Sweetie Drops. She would later become Sweetie Drops' wife.
  • Adaptational Badass: While much of her isn't known due to having not been adapted into the Codexverse yet, here, she's depicted as the mortal demi-divine descendant of Blue Suede Heartstrings, the Alicorn god of Music and Humility who's based on Elvis Presley himself.
  • Divine Parentage: It's rumored in-universe that she's a mortal descendant of Blue Suede Heartstrings, the Alicorn god of Music and Humility, through one of his deceased lovers, making her an extremely diluted case. Supporting this fact is Blue's support of her music career and his blessing of her relationship (and later marriage) with Bon Bon/Sweetie Drops. Lyra was shocked when she discovered that the rumors surrounding them were in fact true.
    Lyra Heartstrings: (shocked) I'M RELATED TO THE KING OF MUSIC?!!
    Bon Bon/Sweetie Drops: Wow, that sure explains a lot.
  • Heroic Lineage: She has a divine ancestor, Blue Suede Heartstrings, known as "the King of Music". And like him, she's an accomplished musician and a benevolent mare. Her lineage was rumored in-universe until she discovered, to her shock, that the rumors were actually true.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Like her divine ancestor, Blue Suede Heartstrings, she would take up music as her career and become skilled with a certain instrument; in her case, it's a lyre.

    Bon Bon/Sweetie Drops 
The sweetheart of Lyra Heartstrings. She would later become Lyra's wife.
  • Dull Surprise: Her response to discovering that Lyra Heartstrings is a mortal demi-divine descendant of Blue Suede Heartstrings is a deadpan, "Wow, that sure explains a lot."

    Sweetie Belle 
The younger sister of Rarity, who is an Equestrian hero and the Elemenet Bearer of Generosity.

    Button Mash, the Gamer of Ponyville 

Character: Heroic

Alignment: Neutral Good

Type: Avid Gamer/Hero-in-the-Making

Faction: Ponyville

"HIGH SCORE!"

An Earth pony colt and video game fan whose special talent lies in video-games.
  • Adaptational Badass: In canon, he's just a colt who likes playing games. Here, he's revealed to have potential to become an Alicorn... of Video Games. In particular, his gaming-related powers, combined with being powered up by the lost, tormented souls of several dead video-gamers, allowed him to utterly dominate his fight with CreepEntity513.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: CreepEntity513 didn't stand a chance when Button temporarily transformed into the Alicorn of Video Games thanks to Luminiferous empowering him with his future potential. The souls of CreepEntity513's victims helped out, too.
  • Children Are Special: Luminiferous notes that as the God of Potential and Perfection, his powers work best on young children, as they generally have heightened potential. When Button used the power of his future potential in a fight against CreepEntity513, a video game-based Eldritch Abomination, it temporarily transformed him into an Alicorn.
  • Deity of Human Origin: He's not there yet, but his temporary transformation into an Alicorn while fighting CreepEntity513 shows that he has the potential to become this in the future. Luminiferous seeks to cultivate this hidden potential so Ascension will be made possible for him.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Button's talent in video games doesn't seem like much, until he had to face the digital Eldritch Abomination CreepEntity513, who had been killing/torturing/traumatizing gamers everywhere it went. When temporarily given his future potential by Luminiferous, Button turned into a young Alicorn of Video Games, able to see a person's life force in the form of a video game-style Life Meter, and call on digital entities and borrowed specific techniques from various games. CreepEntity513 didn't even stand a chance.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: During his battle with CreepEntity513, he wielded a digital great-sword that ultimately proved instrumental in the Eldritch Abomination's defeat and death. It's implied in his entry that one of the weapons he can summon from various video-games are swords.
  • Hero Worship: He idolizes King, an Earth pony gamer from the Second Age, both for his gaming skills and the fact that he was able to remain brave and stand down some of the scariest villains and monsters despite being scared deep down. Even knowing that King had flaws (that he's a coward at heart and his reputation as a hero in life was based on lies) doesn't deter him from his admiration, as without him, he wouldn't find the courage to endure scary parts in his video-games. When King admits to Button Mash that he's no hero, Button Mash tells him he's already a hero because of all the good he had done.
    Button Mash: (on why he sees King as his hero) King told me that he gets scared a lot, but turns out he worked past it several times so more lives could be saved. That's what makes him cooler than most superheroes. I mean, having laser eyes and being able to fly and punch walls is pretty cool, but staying brave enough to fight a villain despite being scared deep down? That's awesome. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't find the courage to finish that Earth Temple dungeon. That place is like, full of screaming zombies that hug you to death if you get close enough. Eugh.
  • Karmic Jackpot: What largely led to Button's victory over CreepEntity513.
    • He befriended the young Alicorn demigod, Crystal Prism, while the latter was visiting Ponyville, even gifting him with a video game. This is what allowed Luminiferous to come to Button's aid after Crystal had a troubling vision about the colt, thanks to his empathetic foresight. After CreepEntity513 was defeated and killed, Crystal Prism came to Button's rescue and led him to safety while the game world was collapsing.
    • His desire to stop CreepEntity513 from going after his loved ones, as well as exposing the monster as nothing more than a sadistic bully, inspired CreepEntity513's victims with hope that they can be freed from their eternal torment - one of its victims turned out to be none other than King, Button's idol, whose spirit tried protecting the younger gamers from CreepEntity513 long after his death and the Second Age's end. This allowed Button to be empowered further, even after Luminiferous temporarily gave him his future potential.
  • Life Meter: After he was temporarily empowered by Luminiferous and turned into the Alicorn of Gaming, he gained the ability to see a person's life in the form of digital "health point" bars that float above their heads. These bars gradually empty themselves with each successful attack upon them.
  • Nightmare Fuel: In-universe; he considers the "screaming zombies that hug you to death if you get close enough" to be this for him, and admits that if it weren't for the fact that King is his idol, he wouldn't find the courage to finish the Earth Temple dungeon. It's implied that Button Mash is referring to the Codexverse equivalent of ReDeads.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Justified in his fight against CreepEntity513, as he's a young colt empowered both by the future potential that was lent to him by Luminiferous, and the energy gifted to him by the spirits of CreepEntity513's various victims.
  • Playing with Fire: Borrowing Ken Master's Shinryuken manifested in him doing a flaming, spinning uppercut.
  • Shoryuken: He borrowed Ken Master's Shinryuken as one of his moves used in his fight against CreepEntity513.
  • Winged Unicorn: When temporarily empowered by Luminiferous, his future potential is revealed to be that of an Alicorn (though a young one) whose domain revolves around video games.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: After King expresses guilt over letting everyone in the Second Age think he's an S-Class Hero when he's just a normal pony and admits that he's "no hero" because he gets scared, Button Mash tells him that he's already a hero because he has done so much to help other ponies despite his constant terror.

    Diamond Tiara 

  • The Atoner: Implied; it's mentioned in a canonized Codexverse drabble that she eventually realized the error of her ways and redeemed herself for her behavior. However, this didn't absolve herself of guilt in the eyes of the Poenan pantheon, whose young followers tried killing her and Silver Spoon on the reasoning that a "greater evil" would eventually emerge from them if they continued living. Fortunately, Fanged Paw would arrive just in time and protect the two fillies by thrashing and humiliating their attackers.
  • The Bully: Like in canon, she was this, until she redeemed herself for her actions. Button Mash's entry notes that her bullying allowed him to see what "CreepEntity513"'s personality is at its core and call it out on its bullying behavior. A canonized Codexverse drabble reveals that Diamond Tiara's past as a bully would come back to haunt her when a group of young Poenan followers tried attacking her and Silver Spoon on the belief that a "greater evil" would later emerge from them. Fortunately, Prince Fanged Paw, Golden Scepter's second son, would arrive in time and protect the two fillies by thrashing and humiliating their attackers.
  • Protectorate: She and Silver Spoon would be deemed this by Prince Fanged Paw, who moved to protect them from a group of young Poenan followers trying to kill them.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Her school bullying did result in a good thing, as Button Mash's experiences with her would lead to him fearlessly calling out the digital entity, CreepEntity513, for being nothing more than a sadistic bully. This fantastic display of courage would give CreepEntity513's dead and living victims hope that they can be saved from their torment, and they would empower Button Mash with their own energy on top of being empowered with his own future potential by Luminiferous - ultimately resulting in CreepEntity513's defeat and death.
  • Would Hurt a Child: On the receiving end. A group of young Poenan followers tried killing her and Silver Spoon for their bullying behavior because they saw a "greater evil" waiting to emerge, despite the two fillies having atoned for their actions. Fortunately for them, Prince Fanged Paw would intervene and protect them. While it's unclear as to what the "greater evil" actually is, Fanged Paw would argue that it would never justify the Poenan followers' actions nevertheless because of the extreme lengths they took in smiting Evil.

    Silver Spoon 

  • The Atoner: Implied; it's mentioned in a canonized Codexverse drabble that she eventually realized the error of her ways and redeemed herself for her behavior. However, this didn't absolve herself of guilt in the eyes of the Poenan pantheon, whose young followers tried killing her and Diamond Tiara on the reasoning that a "greater evil" would eventually emerge from them if they continued living. Fortunately, Fanged Paw would arrive just in time and protect the two fillies by thrashing and humiliating their attackers.
  • The Bully: Like in canon, she was this, until she redeemed herself for her actions. A canonized Codexverse drabble reveals that her past as a bully would come back to haunt her when a group of young Poenan followers tried attacking her and Silver Spoon on the belief that a "greater evil" would later emerge from them. Fortunately, Prince Fanged Paw, Golden Scepter's second son, would arrive in time and protect the two fillies by thrashing and humiliating their attackers.
  • Protectorate: She and Diamond Tiara would be deemed this by Prince Fanged Paw, who moved to protect them from a group of young Poenan followers trying to kill them.
  • Would Hurt a Child: On the receiving end. A group of young Poenan followers tried attacking her and Diamond Tiara for their bullying behavior because they saw a "greater evil" waiting to emerge, despite the two fillies having atoned for their actions. Fortunately for them, Prince Fanged Paw would intervene and protect them. While it's unclear as to what the "greater evil" actually is, Fanged Paw would argue that it would never justify the Poenan followers' actions nevertheless because of the extreme lengths they took in smiting Evil.

    Filthy Rich 
Diamond Tiara's father.
  • Adult Fear: He would go through this when both his daughter, Diamond Tiara, and her friend, Silver Spoon, were attacked and nearly killed by a group of young Poenan followers, who wanted to eliminate the "greater evil" that would potentially emerge from the two fillies. After Prince Fanged Paw intervened and saved Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon, Filthy Rich would be seen repeatedly thanking him for protecting them afterwards.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: If Prince Fanged Paw hadn't intervened when a group of young Poenan followers tried attacking Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon, Filthy Rich would end up outliving his own daughter. It's because of this that he was seen repeatedly thanking Fanged Paw for protecting Diamond Tiara after the incident.

    Octavia Melody 

    Vinyl Scratch/"DJ Pone-3" 

    Three Leaf, the Broken Song/Voice of Hope 

Character: Heroic

Alignment: Neutral Good

Type: Ex-Fanatic/Healer/Singer/Recovering Abuse Victim

Faction: Sunnytown (formerly), Ponyville

"I may have been broken once, but that doesn't mean my 'song' can't be fixed!"

Three Leaf (her entry here) is a childhood friend of Grey Hoof who has since cut ties with him, and a former resident of Sunnytown.
  • Broken Bird: Despite cutting ties with Grey Hoof, accepting responsibility for her involvement in Ruby Heart's murder, and breaking free of Pakak's curse, her trauma from centuries of emotional/mental abuse and losing everyone close to her didn't entirely go away. Grey Hoof's influence on her was so great that she still distrusted/feared Cutie Marks, was eager to please others, and tended to be obsessively clingy. She also bore great reluctance to accept psychiatric help and resume pursuing her musical healing talents again despite really wanting to because her fear of becoming "infected" still lingered. As such, because of her psychological trauma, she is genuinely baffled when Blue Suede Heartstrings still decides to help her despite hearing of her crimes, and feels that she doesn't deserve it. It takes Blue magically severing the friendship "rope" connecting her to Grey Hoof for her to finally move on, and Blue himself equates her life and experiences in Sunnytown to being stuck in "Hearbreak Hotel" for a very long time.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: While "Evil" doesn't apply to her anymore at this point, she was so broken by her experiences in Sunnytown that she is genuinely baffled why someone like Blue Suede Heartstrings would still find the compassion and mercy to help her break free from Grey Hoof's abusive influence, despite hearing of her horrific crimes.
    Three Leaf: ...Why did you help me, Blue? You've heard what I've done. Why did you help me...?
    Blue Suede Heartstrings: Because it's the right thing to do, ma'am. Now, I don't agree with what you and your fellas had done, but after looking at your heart, it was pretty obvious you needed help. And it wouldn't feel right if I left you be just because you swung with the wrong crowd.
    Three Leaf: I... I don't deserve this...
    Blue Suede Heartstrings: Yes, you do. Ever heard of 'Heartbreak Hotel'?
    Three Leaf: No...?
    Blue Suede Heartstrings: In my day, 'Heartbreak Hotel' is what we called a terrible, sad, and lonely place where brokenhearted folks go. You were stuck in that place for a VERY long time, ma'am. I think it's time we get you outta there and help you move into some place BETTER.
  • The Magnificent: Was initially known as "the Broken Song" in Ponyville due to being an aspiring singer/healer who was utterly and emotionally broken by her childhood friend, Grey Hoof. After recovering from her traumas, disowning Grey Hoof as her friend, and having her ties with him magically severed by Blue Suede Heartstrings, she would found a support group designed to help abuse victims such as her fellow repentant Sunnytowners, and once caused several Poenan followers to run off in shame after calling them out for their hypocritical fanaticism with an epic "The Reason You Suck" Speech. Her actions would later earn her a new epithet, "the Voice of Hope".
  • Obliviously Evil: She has Undying Loyalty towards Grey Hoof, both because of her childhood crush on him and because of his charisma, and because of this she is unable to truly understand that her actions towards Ruby Heart and others were wrong. Ruby Heart and Grief afire working to break her out of this so she can properly acknowledge and atone for her sins.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: She would angrily give an epic one to a group of mortal Poenan followers when they tried attacking other repentant Sunnytowners, stating that they're Not So Different from Grey Hoof in hurting innocent people and lying to their victims to make them believe they're guilty for something they're not or have already atoned for. It was so effective that it caused some Poenans to flee in shame. The rest were quickly defeated by an angry Blue Suede Heartstrings for targeting his mortal demi-divine descendant's best friend.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has a dark green mane and tail, and a bright green pelt.
