Characters / Echo Creek A Tale Of Two Butterflies

Go To

Mariposa Diaz

  • Adaptational Heroism: Since she got to grow up with her family she is much nicer than she was in the Never-zone.
  • Brains and Brawn: Meteora considers her the "smart one", though she can still kick butt.
  • Nice Girl: In contrast to Meteora.
  • Big Brother Worship: Downplayed, but she does admire and respect her brother. She also greatly admires Star.

Meteora Butterfly

  • Berserk Button: Hurt Mariposa and she will kill you.
    • She hates the "It's not criminal to be an individual" phrase so much that Marco exploits it to find her when she gets separated from him and Mariposa in a crowd.
    • Advertisement:
    • Mariposa tries to purposefully press hers to get her mad enough to escape the vines trapping them, but it fails.
  • Brains and Brawn: Although Mariposa is pretty tough herself, Meteora is clearly the stronger of the two due to her monster heritage, and considers her friend the "smart one".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She is selfish, blatantly ignores rules for dangerous fun, but she cares greatly for Mariposa.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Technically half Mewman (who are transplanted humans), half size-shifter.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Has a tendency to look before she leaps, sometimes literally.
  • Teen Rebel: She likes living on the edge.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Due to destroying magic in the original series Metaora no longer has magic. She also is unable to grow in size like her father but she is still super strong and can unleash a Berserker Form when angry.

Seth of Septarsis

  • Ascended Extra: Though he was mentioned in the book of spells as the leader of the rebel monster fraction and waging war on all mewmans, Daron Nefcy herself stated that he was just created to provide more background information to Mewni and that he died long before the series. Here he’s one of the antagonists and the leader of a Septarian gang.
  • Spared By Adaptation: As stated above he died before the original series. However, he is a cyborg and his enhancements seem to extend to his chest so it could be a matter of being brought Back from the Dead.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Punches and intends to kill Meteora and throws Mari against a stone wall.


Marco Diaz

Star Butterfly

  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: She's matured a lot but still has some silly sides, like having Marco take a time out so she can talk to Mariposa.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She's the mayor of Echo Creek now and mediates between Mariposa and Marco.
  • Purely Aesthetic Glasses: She wears glasses now, but they are just for show.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: She gives Mariposa her old electric scooter so she can make it to a concert in LA. While telling her she can ignore all the lights and stop signs.
  • Sickeningly Sweethearts: With Marco. Though it's unclear if they are married at this point or still dating, Marco is already thinking about having children with her.

Globgore and Eclipsa

  • Your Size May Vary: Globgor is a size-shifter.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: After everything they went through in the cannon series, they have been able to happily and safely raise their daughter for 15 years in Echo Creek.
  • Good Parents: Both for Meteora.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Due to destroying magic in the original series Eclipsa no longer has magic.
  • So Proud of You: Both Eclipsa and Globgor express pride when Meteora rocks out on her old skeleton guitar.

Past Queens A.I.’s

  • Back from the Dead: Subverted. They are A.I.s created from blueprints of the past queens of Mewnis neural circuitry which was engraved on the walls of the magic sanctuary after magic was destroyed. So they technically aren’t Star and Meteora's ancestors but they have their personality and memories.
  • Big Damn Heroes: The Solaria A.I. saves Meteora near the end of chapter 2.
  • Virtual Ghost: What they basically are, A.I.s with the memories of the deceased Mewni queens. Meteora even calls the Solaria one the ghost of her.
  • You Are Number 6: They have code numbers that identify them. For example, the A.I. Of Solarias code is EC-AI #28-9.

The Stump

  • Been There, Shaped History: It is the same stump that the first Mewman settlers gathered around to survive a harsh storm and honored every year with Stump Day. However, it reveals to Meteora and Mariposa that it actually CREATED the storm in the first place.
  • Face Death with Dignity: While still angered when Mariposa and Meteora set it on fire it finds satisfaction knowing that it fulfilled its “purpose” of making people work together.
  • Revenge: The reason that it caused the storm was revenge for the Mewni settlers cutting it down.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: It traps people to force them to work and get along with each other. Yet still has no issue killing and eating those it considers a threat.
