Characters / Equestria: Across the Multiverse

Go To

The Mane Six run into many, many different worlds and universes in their travels. Some are variations on Equestria, others are completely unknown to them. Here's a handy guide of what they've encountered.

NOTE: This page is mainly for cataloging the various worlds/arcs and the unique characters encountered within.


    open/close all folders 

    Lighting the Darkness 
  • De-Power: Lord Yomi's death strips all of his witches and warlocks of their magic, as he was the source of it to begin with.
  • Holy Burns Evil: Yomi and his minions, being demonic in nature, can be injured by holy objects, such as holy water or Queen Equinox's symbols. Or any deity for that matter, Twilight included.
  • Immune to Bullets: Warlocks and Yomi's other minions can't be harmed by anything of mortal make. Turns out Twilight, being an Alicorn, technically doesn't qualify as mortal as far as this ability is concerned. As a result, anything she creates can hurt them.
  • La Résistance: There is one fighting against Lord Yomi and his forces.
  • Muggles: The majority of this universe's population are Earth Ponies but lack any magic. The Mane Six start teaching it to them to be able to beat them.
  • Super Mode: Moonlight, Sunny Days, Maud, Night Stalker, Orangejack, and Antiquity are the second group who get Super Empowering from the Mane Six and gain Rainbow Power forms.
  • Takes One to Kill One: Yomi's forces can only be harmed by magic or those with strong enough magic. Given they live in a world of Muggles, this makes them near invincible. Unfortunately for them, the Mane Six are magic users and strong enough to curbstomp most of them. And have enough know-how to make magic weapons and teach the natives magic.
  • The Magic Comes Back: Lord Yomi and his forces returning brought this about, though unfortunately only villains had it. The Mane Six arriving brought it back to the good side.
  • The Magic Goes Away: Turns out that this happened already in this world, and it's why Yomi and his forces had such an easy time taking over.

Night Stalker

  • Action Survivor: Despite being incapable of harming the horrors attacking his world, he's still able to handle himself pretty well.
  • Defiant to the End: Tries to distract Bad Omen despite knowing he can't hurt him.
  • Friendly Sniper: Is a sniper, but overall friendly towards the mane six.
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: Trades his sniper rifle for a bow and arrow. Justified, as said arrows have silver heads, which can actually hurt Yomi's minions. As they only have so much silver, an arrow head that can be recovered is more practical than bullets that can only be reliably used once. Even after they have enough to make bullets, he keeps with it.

Sunny Days/Celestia

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate version of Princess Celestia.
  • Armor Is Useless: Subverted. She and her sister wear stylized armor simply to help them survive confrontations with Yomi's minions. Twilight later gives it an upgrade with a silver coating and runes to make it much more useful.
  • Ass Kicks You: Sat on at least one shrunken Warlock who got defiant during an interrogation.
  • Chrome Champion: Twilight later upgrades her armor with a silver coating and magic runes. This gives her magic resistance and because being magical in nature allows her to damage Yomi's minions.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Ascends into an Alicorn.
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: Ascends along with her sister during the Final Battle with Lord Yomi.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Already an Action Survivor, Twilight gives her a suit of magic armor and Applejack teaches her basic Earth Pony magic on top of it. She later gets a magic surge mode.
  • Good Is Not Soft: She's nicer than her sister, but also still willing to fight in brutal ways and kill if needed, due to the nature of the conflict she's in.
  • Limit Break: Her magic surge, which is basically the magical equal of an adrenaline rush.
  • Meaningful Name: Is renamed Celestia by Queen Equinox when she ascends into an Alicorn.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Hears out the mane six and is reasonable to them.
  • Rebel Leader: One of the leaders of La Résistance against Lord Yomi.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Is a reasonable, friendly person and optimistic, compared to her sister's more cold and suspicious personality.
  • You Killed My Father: A Greater Demon named Dagon executed her and her sister's parents.

Moonlight/Luna

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate version of Princess Luna.
  • Armor Is Useless: Subverted. She and her sister wear stylized armor simply to help them survive confrontations with Yomi's minions. It also has built in weapons. Twilight later upgrades it with silver and magic runes to make it not only more effective at that, but letting them harm Yomi's minions.
  • Chrome Champion: Twilight later upgrades her armor with a silver coating and magic runes. This gives her magic resistance and because being magical in nature allows her to damage Yomi's minions.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Ascends into an Alicorn.
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: Ascends along with her sister during the Final Battle with Lord Yomi.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Already an Action Survivor, Twilight gives her a suit of magic armor and Applejack teaches her basic Earth Pony magic on top of it.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Is a good guy, but she's also willing to be brutal in combat and kill if needed, moreso than her sister, due to the situation they're in.
  • Limit Break: Her magic surge, which is basically the magical equal of an adrenaline rush.
  • Meaningful Rename: Is renamed Luna by Queen Equinox when she ascends.
  • Mercy Kill: Attempts this on a Forgotten One (a pony transformed into a monster by Yomi who they're generally incapable of doing anything for). Thankfully, Fluttershy is able to purify them, negating the need of this.
  • Properly Paranoid: Doesn't trust the mane six that much, but has justifiable reasons for it given the only other magic users in their universe are all evil.
  • Rebel Leader: One of the leaders of La Résistance against Lord Yomi.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Is colder, suspicious, and confrontational compared to her warm and welcoming sister.
  • Talk to the Fist: How she replies to Yomi's Deal with the Devil.
  • Terror Hero: Makes an effort to scare and intimidate Yomi's minions once she gains the ability to actually hurt them.
  • You Killed My Father: A Greater Demon named Dagon executed her and her sister's parents. While her sister is also upset about it, Moonlight seems way more upset about it, to the point of telling Twilight to her face that she has little intent of taking Dagon alive when he shows up herself.

Maud

Antiquity

  • And I Must Scream: Yomi turned her into a Forgotten One to silence her, but Fluttershy purified and saved her.
  • Badass Bookworm: Is an archaeologist and rather intelligent, but also knows about Queen Equinox and can use her name and symbols to do some serious damage. Or any deity's for that matter.
  • He Knows Too Much: The reason she was turned into a Forgotten One: she'd uncovered the lost knowledge of Queen Equinox and thus various means to harm Yomi and his forces. Unfortunately for Yomi, Fluttershy purified her and let her tell the resistance.
  • White Mage: Unlike most of the world's inhabitants, she knows of the past before they forgot their goddess and their magic, and thus is capable of invoking deities to make various holy objects and spells that can harm Yomi and his forces. A favorite of hers is holy water.

Orangejack

  • Action Girl: Is a Samurai Jack Expy, so this goes without saying. She's good enough to fight one of the Four Kings with just Pinkie's help and win.
  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate Applejack.
  • Cool Sword: Has a magical katana forged from a meteor that was infused with Queen Equinox's essence. And also forged by Twilight and Mothra. By the time we see her again, she's named it Aku no Bēn, or Evil's Bane.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Learned Earth Pony magic and was equipped with a magical sword, but was already trained from a young age to be an amazing fighter.
  • Expy: Of Samurai Jack by Word of God.
  • Forged by the Gods: Needed to find a god to forge her katana. She eventually found Twilight, who had brought over Mothra Lea to help, so her sword was forged by two deities.
  • Named Weapon: She names her magic sword Aku no Bēn, or Evil's Bane after using it to help slay Lord Yomi.
  • Ninja: Like her basis, she's trained in Ninjutsu as well and uses it to counter Umi's teleport spam with Pinkie's help.

Queen Equinox

  • Dark Is Not Evil: Darkness is one of the things she ruled over, but she was decidedly benevolent.
  • God Is Dead: Was Equus's benevolent goddess, but died saving it from an asteroid. This was a bad thing, as gradually Legend Fades to Myth and she was forgotten, resulting in both ponies forgetting how to exploit Holy Burns Evil against Yomi and his forces and the ritual to keep Yomi sealed away.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Died saving Equus from an asteroid.
  • Light Is Good: Light was one of the things she ruled over, and she was benevolent.
  • Posthumous Character: Died long ago saving Equus from a meteor.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: The Goddess of Light and Darkness.

Umi

Jishin

Nobi

  • Co-Dragons: One of Yomi's Four Kings.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: Is ecstatic when the heroes actually manage to harm him, as it's actually exciting to finally be injured and challenged.
  • Defeat Equals Explosion: Explodes upon death.
  • Eldritch Abomination: His One-Winged Angel form is one, being a chaotic mass of reptile, dinosaur, and dragon parts with way too many heads.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Is the only one of the four who takes their impending defeat, despite being one of two to die.
  • Fallen Hero: Was trying to keep Lord Yomi sealed away, but the Demon managed to convince him to join him instead.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Normal water just evaporates on contact with him, only holy water actually effects him and makes him vulnerable.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: Is basically a equine shaped chimera of reptiles. His One-Winged Angel form takes it Up to Eleven and adds in dinosaurs and dragons to the mix.
  • One-Winged Angel: After being filled with arrows, battered, and sent through a wall by the heroes, he transforms into an Eldritch Abomination made of bird parts.
  • Playing with Fire: Is the King of Fire and thus can manipulate it. He also seems to be made of fire, and only becomes material if hit with holy water.
  • Victory Is Boring: Hasn't had anything resembling a challenge or anything interesting happen to him in a long time and thus is completely apathetic to everything around him. He becomes extremely excited when the heroes actually manage to hurt and give him a good fight because it's the only interesting thing to happen to him in a long time.
  • Was Once a Man: Used to be a pony who became what he is now after a Deal with the Devil with Yomi.
  • Worth It: His reaction to his impending death, as he finally got to have some excitement in the preceding fight.

Fubo.

Lord Yomi

  • Animalistic Abomination: His true form is equine shaped but clearly anything but.
  • Arc Villain: The main villain of the arc in his world.
  • Big Brother Is Watching You: Has demonic eyes flying around to spy on the populace. They're connected to the giant eye he put on the moon, and die off when he reabsorbs it.
  • Deal with the Devil:
    • Managed to make one with the Four Kings to let him escape his prison instead of performing the ritual to keep him sealed in exchange for the boons he offered. He tries to make a similar one with Twilight, Moonlight, and Sunny Days when the confront him, but they all turn him down.
    • All of the Witches and Warlocks made one with him for their powers. As a result, his death causes them to all lose their power.
  • Eldritch Abomination: His One-Winged Angel form is this, being a Lovecraftian Kaiju-sized monstrosity.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: His true form has an eye on its chest and a head covered in them. His One-Winged Angel form is covered in them.
  • Evil Overlord: Rules over his universe's Equus as a tyrannical despot.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Is polite when the heroes finally confront them, and offers them a Deal with the Devil. He quickly drops the act when they turn him down.
  • Hellfire: Uses a lot of it and has it as part of his body.
  • Horns of Villainy: His true form has a pair of ram horns.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: The form he initially appears in to try and make a Deal with the Devil with the heroes is a well dressed black stallion. He drops it when he transforms.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction to seeing Sunny Days and Moonlight ascend and become Celestia and Luna, reminding him of Equinox in the process.
  • One-Winged Angel: After being thrown out of his tower and falling all the way to the ground, he reabsorbs the eye he put on the moon (which was connected to his spy eyes) to regain his full power, transforming into a Kaiju-sized Eldritch Abomination.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Is a demon that emerged to conquer the world and rule it.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Is revealed to have been imprisoned in the moon's shadow by Queen Equinox long ago. Ponies forgot the rituals needed to maintain his seal, allowing him to escape.
  • This Cannot Be!: His reaction to both Sunny Days and Moonlight ascending and his death.

    Gods' War 

Princess Twilight Sparkle

Amicitia

Gojira

Bagan

  • Ancient Evil: Is a super ancient kaiju that reemerged in the modern day.
  • Arc Villain: Is the main villain of his world's arc.
  • Karmic Death: Murdered Harmony. She then became part of Amicitia, allowing Twilight and her to power up Gojira into Super Gojira, who ultimately kills Bagan.
  • Smug Super: Has a very high opinion of himself, but is extremely powerful.
  • This Cannot Be!: His reaction to realizing Gojira is being powered up by Harmony's magic after he murdered her, and is now overpowering him.

    Deep Blue Sea 
  • Flying Seafood Special: Sprites, despite being merponies, have a pair of massive wing-like fins. The Everfrost's Dragon is also a manta ray-like ice dragon.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: The ponies are all this to some degree. Nymphs are their version of unicorns, Sprites are their version of Pegasi, and Merponies (who have whale traits and have great physical strength) are their Earth Ponies. Sea Ponies also exist.

Lunar Tides

  • Alternate Self: Despite filling a role similar to Twilight, she's actually an alternate Moon Dancer.
  • Embodiment of Virtue: Ultimately becomes the Element of Enchantment, which also represents Companionship.

Water Guitar

Saltwater Taffy/Agent Sugar Water.

Spine

Prima Marina

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate version of Countess Coloratura.
  • Embodiment of Virtue: Comes to represent the Element of Charity, due to putting others before themselves and giving up any chance of escaping the Everfrost to help save Lunar Tide's group escape.
  • In-Series Nickname: Like her prime self, she has one: Rina.
  • Nice Girl: Gives a family the money needed to get away from the Everfrost out of the kindness of her heart.

Vuurvis

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate version of Zecora.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: She's venomous due to her Lionfish half, but is just as moral as the main Zecora. Downplayed in that the poison isn't even lethal, just extremely painful.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Shows up to help the group against a Sea Monster lurking in the Dark Water using her venomous spines.
  • Embodiment of Virtue: Comes to represent the Element of Compassion due to still having the heart to help and be kind to others despite the mistreatment she received.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is part of an African name for the Lionfish (or Zebrafish) Diepwater vuurvis. This was done because her prime self's name is simply Zebra in an African language.
  • Poisonous Person: Her fish half is a Lionfish (also called a Zebra fish), and as such the spines on her back contain venomous barbs she can use.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: Like her prime self, she speaks in rhyme.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: Admits many who come to Dark Water believe she's an evil witch and is reasonably upset by this, but states she just can't find it in her heart to hate them and thus still shows them compassion.

AK Schooling/Daring Depths

  • Alternate Self: Of Daring Do.
  • Embodiment of Virtue: Comes to represent the Element of Devotion, due to her dedication to saving artifacts and the world from harm.
  • I Work Alone: Tries this like her prime counterpart, but Frost Talon showing up forces her to work with the group. She later admits it's because her work is dangerous and she doesn't want others to get hurt.

Princess Vevela

Princess Aisa/Nightmare Everfrost

  • Alternate Self: Turns out to be one of Luna/Nightmare Moon.
  • An Ice Person: Is the Princess of cold and ice, her Superpowered Evil Side is powerful enough to freeze the entire world.
  • Arc Villain: Is the main antagonist of this world.
  • Evil Is Deathly Cold: As Nightmare Everfrost, she was actively trying to freeze over the world and the first thing Lunar notes when transported to her throne room is how much colder it is.
  • It Can Think: At first seems to just be a mindless force of destruction, but gradually is revealed to be a thinking entity actively commanding Frost Talon. It's eventually revealed to actually be Nightmare Everfrost, Nightmare Moon's counterpart and Princess Aisa's Superpowered Evil Side.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Nightmare Everfrost was imprisoned in the ice caps a thousand years ago using the Elements of Unity, but recently escaped.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Nightmare Everfrost is one for Princess Aisa, who felt rejected and unloved due to ponies shunning her cold winters for her sister's warm weather. She's purified by the Elements of Unity.
  • World-Wrecking Wave: Her influence as Nightmare Everfrost spreading over the world, freezing everything it touches in ice.

Frost Talon

  • An Ice Person: Breaths ice instead of fire, and almost seems made of it.
  • Badass Boast: Gives several of them whenever he confronts the heroes.
    Frost Talon: Little one, I don't think you know who you trifle with. I am Frost Talon! For 7,000 years I have haunted the depths! Taking what I wish, destroying what I wish! Leaving frozen desolation in my wake! My armor is iron! My teeth are like swords! My claws harpoons! The swipe of my tail a whirlpool! My wings are a tidal wave! And my breath an ice age! And though I am strong, my master is stronger still!...So, little pony, do you really intend to defy us?!"
  • The Dragon: To the Everfrost, who he serves to prevent his 7,000th spring, and thus his evil deeds finally catching up with him, from coming.
  • Expy: Is stated by Word of God to be based off Gmork, with his motivation coming from Aeon the Terrible.
  • Implacable Man: Unknown to the heroes until Vuurvis reveals his existence, he's been pursuing them relentlessly across the ocean the entire story. When they actually fight him, he proves very difficult to meaningfully harm.
  • Killed Off for Real: Is shattered to bits after being turned into an ice sculpture by the Elements of Unity and shatters on impact.
  • Leitmotif: A Mighty Enemy Appears from Lost Odyssey.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: Is turned to an ice statue by the Elements of Unity and shatters falling down a ravine, killing him.
  • Mortality Phobia: His motivation is to stop his 7,000th winter from ending as it's predicted he will finally receive his Laser-Guided Karma for his actions.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction to the Elements of Unity turning the surrounding area into a Spring-like appearance, thus fulfilling the prophecy of his demise.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Is an ice dragon with manta ray-like attributes and gills.
  • Screw Destiny: His reason for serving the Everfrost: he wants to avoid a prophecy predicting his wicked deeds finally catching up with him at the end of his 7,000th winter by locking the world in an eternal winter so spring never comes. He fails.
  • Sea Monster: Is described by Vuurvis as a 'terror of the deep' and is a giant, manta ray-like dragon.
  • Smug Super: He is very aware of the fact he's an ancient, powerful ice dragon.
  • Time Abyss: Is 7,000 years old.

    Inverted Ages 

Prince Spike

Twilight Sparkle

    Unknown Power 

    Under The Red Sun 
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Fluttershy is an insectoid Thri-Kreen in this universe.
  • Crapsack World: It's Dark Sun's world. Obviously it's this.
  • Cruel Mercy: What the Mane Six threaten to do with the slavers—not killing them, but taking all their supplies and weapons and leaving them tied up in the desert. The thought of this fate is enough to get one of the slavers to agree to an alternative.
  • Curb-Stomp Cushion: The slavers get thrashed by the Mane Six, but the fight isn't a complete walkover: several of the girls are wounded or otherwise injured, and need to use the medical supplies they pilfer from the slavers to patch themselves up.
  • Incredible Shrinking Man: Twilight uses a shrinking potion to make all the slavers but Ulna an inch high and stuff them in a jar.
  • Outside Context Magic: Twilight and Rarity's use of magic scare the hell out of the slavers, whose first reaction is to think they're "Defilers".

Ulna

  • Bad with the Bone: Along with her fellow slavers, she packed weapons made of bone and/or obsidian.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: When Pinkie helps Ulna up after startling her enough to make her fall down, Ulna is completely shell-shocked; suspecting a trick. Even after multiple assurances she won't be harmed, she's still terrified of the Mane Six.
  • Imagine Spot: At one point Ulna imagines herself doused with Twilight's shrinking potion...and being sold as a tiny slave or fed to Thri-Kreen!Fluttershy.
  • Made a Slave: Tried to do this to the Mane Six...it didn't end well. When the tables are turned, she refers to Twilight as her Mistress; implying Ulna thinks she has been enslaved.
  • Psychic Powers: Is a "psion", the world's equivalent of a normal magic user.

    Bright Future 
  • Deity of Human Origin: Becoming a deity is not easy, but it was streamlined allowing the majority of the population to ascend.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Have apparently done this multiple times.
  • Future Badass: Literally everyone. Which is what happens when an entire world's population ascended and became gods.
  • One Riot, One Ranger: When aiding Mainline Equestria in their conflicts, this seems to be their policy, as both times they've sent a single pony (Prince Shining Armor the first time and Princess Gilia for the second). Justified, as they explicitly do not want the Alliance to depend on the army of gods to solve their problems and each member in question is a full grown Alicorn thousands of years more experienced than even the present Celestia and Luna.
  • Physical God: Most of the population.
  • Space Police: The Wonderbolts have spread out and become this. This job apparently involves taking down cosmic criminals.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Most characters who were around in the present are several thousand years old by now.
  • Winged Unicorn: Most of the pony population are Alicorns.

Princess Aequitas

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate version of Starlight Glimmer.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Takes the visiting mane six's questions and visit in stride, even when they misunderstand the situation a few times. She's also the Princess of Social Equality and Fairness, so she's this by default.

Princess Apple Bloom

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate version of Apple Bloom.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Is a technology wiz and invented a large amount of the world's technology herself.
  • Super Intelligence: Is noted as having a '12th level intellect' and invented a large number of the Bright Future world's tech, due to being the Princess of Invention and Progress.
  • Technopath: Part of her portfolio is controlling technology with her mind.

Prince Shining Armor:

  • Barrier Warrior: Is literally the god of this trope. He's good enough at it to shield every population center in Equestria by himself.
  • One Riot, One Ranger: Is sent to aid in the First Multiversal War and protect the civilian population by himself. He's fully up to the task.

Princess Gilia

  • Alternate Self: Her identity is concealed at first, but she's actually an alternate version of Tempest Shadow/Fizzlepop Berrytwist.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Delivers several to Tempest Shadow during the Storm King battle. She's so good at it because she is Tempest Shadow from an alternate timeline, and thus knows how she thinks.
  • Handicapped Badass: Despite being an Alicorn, her horn is still broken. She explains she could regenerate it whenever she desired, but doesn't so as to inspire others with disabilities with what's possible.
  • Having a Blast: Can use Tempest's unstable magic bursts, but kept it hidden using a false horn until she reveals herself.
  • I Hate Past Me: She's rather frustrated at Tempest Shadow for being so stubborn about seeing the error of her ways, because she herself is an alternate future version of her and knows where those ways are heading.
  • Meaningful Name: Gilia is the feminine form of Giles. As in Saint Giles, the Patron Saint of Cripples, foreshadowing that she's the future version of the handicapped Tempest Shadow.
  • My Future Self and Me: Is an alternate future version of Tempest Shadow and confronts the native Tempest during the Storm King battle.
  • No-Sell: Is easily able to counter Tempest's Obsidian Sphere. Justified, as she is Tempest and thus knows exactly how they work, their limitations, and their weaknesses, so she's naturally easily able to counter them.
  • One Riot, One Ranger: Is sent to help the Alliance against the upgraded Storm King's forces as their only representative. She proves rather effective.
  • The Paralyzer: Can shoot beams of lightning with this effect.

     Kaiju Ponies 
  • A Kind of One: Godzilla refers to Rainbow Dash and Applejack as 'a Rodan' and 'an Anguirus' because they're the same species as them, but it's this trope as they're literally the only members of their species in existence (being they were created by ancient civilizations) and he's basically making a species name up on the spot.
  • Blob Monster: Hedorah, naturally. Pinkie Pie also becomes one on arrival, though with a more reptilian shape to her. It's not exactly clear what she's made of though, just that it smells sweet.
  • Giant Flyer: Mothra Lea and Rodan are mentioned and Xenilla shows up in his flying form. Rainbow Dash actually became the same species as Rodan on arrival, while Fluttershy became a Mothra. While Twilight became a Godzillasaur, she kept her wings and thus also counts.
  • Kaiju: Is a Godzilla universe, and thus inhabited by a lot of them. The mane six turn into them when they arrive for a change.
  • One-Winged Angel: When taken to Equestria, they turn into native species while retaining some traits, but if given an infusion of magic can reassume their true form for a period of time.
  • Planimal: Biollante is mentioned. Applejack also turned into one when she arrived, basically being a hybrid between Anguirus and an apple tree similar to Biollante's nature.
  • Power Crystal: Krystalak and Xenilla, naturally. Rarity turned into some kind of crystal monster similar to Krystalak.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: Mainline Equestria sometimes calls for aid from the Terra Defenders when in need of help against something big or extreme odds.

Godzilla Junior

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's called the King of the Monsters for a reason, and the title is not just a nickname. He's ruler of half of Terra's kaiju. Even in pony form he's capable of fighting the 20 foot tall Alpha Death Crawler one on one and killing the four smaller ones without much trouble.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Is called in to help save the town besieged by the Death Crawlers, and arrives just in time to save Cheerilee and the struggling defenders.
  • Breath Weapon: Has his Atomic Ray, as to be expected.
  • Clueless Chick Magnet: His Equestrian form manages to get a number of mares to swoon for him as in The Bridge proper, but he has no clue about it, nor real interest in romance.
  • Eat Me: How he kills one of the Death Crawlers.
  • Giant Foot of Stomping: After the Female Alpha Death Crawler appears, Cherry Blossom (sick and tired of the whole mess) has the native Lyra turn Junior back into his true form, and he promptly squashes it like a bug under his now gigantic foot.
  • Gentle Giant: In stark contrast to the last Godzilla the group met, he's this. The moment he sensed Twilight unknowingly sending off a psychic distress call due to being fearful of him, he relaxes and tries to calm her down, letting them know he's not there for a fight unless someone else starts. Even in pony form, he's still a mountain of a stallion, so he still counts.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Is very willing to kill to protect others if need be. He wipes out four of the six Death Crawlers quickly and efficiently, and ultimately kills both Alphas, but is doing so to save innocent people.
  • Happily Adopted: By both parents. Notably, his adopted mother was a human, and he's quite protective of her.
  • Having a Blast: Can do a Nuclear Pulse to unleash a pretty powerful explosion. He also is able to channel it to his limbs or tail to enhance his blows.
  • Jawbreaker: Learned from his mentor Kong. He uses it to kill one of the Death Crawlers.
  • Kaiju: He's Godzilla, what else would you expect?
  • Psychic Radar: The reason he ended up finding the Mane Six: Twilight turned into a Godzillasaur in his universe, and they have a homing sense allowing him to detect others of his kind. This confuses him, as all other members of his kind were accounted for at the time so at first he thinks it's a baby one.
  • Raised by Humans: His 'mother' was a human who took care of him until his father, the previous Godzilla, took him in.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite being very confused by the sudden appearance of six other kaiju (mainly because three of them should be the only member of their species in existence), he takes time to calm Twilight down when she starts panicking (due to a previous Kaiju related experience) and hears them out. He then does his best to help him, even if the situation very reasonably confuses him.

Mothra Lea

  • Action Girl: Is one of the strongest of the Defenders, being a toss up between her and Junior.
  • Badass Adorable: Is a giant fuzzy moth. The plan to deal with Yomi's demon army is to let her do it. She does.
  • Beam Spam: Has a lot of energy attacks at her disposal, and can rapid fire them.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Is a giant moth in her true form and a Changeling Queen in her Equestrian one. Benevolent example.
  • Red Baron: The Guardian of Mortals.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: Twilight brings her to the Lighting the Darkness world to deal with Yomi's demon army so they can defeat the demon lord.

Rodan

  • Breath Weapon: His Uranium Ray.
  • Feed It with Fire: Can absorb thermal energy from any source to gain strength, including fire and background heat. Twilight feeds him enough to access his Super Mode to turn the tables on Zeus.
  • Giant Flyer: Is a giant altered Pterosaur.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: When he comes to Equestria, he has trouble walking due to going from four limbs to six.
  • Partial Transformation: In Equestria, he becomes a Griffon, but his bird half is still a Pterosaur.
  • Red Baron: The Guardian Beast of Air, the Supersonic Phoenix, Guardian Beast Omega.
  • Super Mode: If powered up enough, he can temporarily obtain the full power he would have had if he hadn't been awakened prematurely. Twilight feeds him an entire army's worth of thermal weaponry to do this to fight Zeus.

Gamera:

  • Breath Weapon: Can spit plasma fireballs and breath fire. He retains this power even when on Equus.
  • Healing Factor: Has a water powered one, though weaker than Godzilla's.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Strikes one up with the Beetleborg Cutie Mark Crusaders and the group fights together in the battle with the Flim Flam's army. According to Word of God, this was inspired by his status as the Friend to All Children in the Showa Era.
  • Making a Splash: Is the Guardian Beast of Water, though he primarily fights with fireballs by splitting hydrogen and oxygen then burning them. This makes fighting in a rain storm give him a small boost.
  • Red Baron: Guardian Beast of Water, Guardian Beast Beta.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: His aid is called for to fend off the invading Flim Flam Brothers, though his kaiju form is saved for later in the battle.
  • Turtle Power: Is a giant firebreathing turtle.

Yonggary

  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Wears a tuxedo to Winter Song and Sincere Heart's wedding. Shining Armor brought him along to be a bodyguard, and he's very good at that job. Sadly it's not as bullet proof as he is and gets shredded.
  • Breath Weapon: Can spit magnesium flare fireballs from his mouth. He can also breath a short range flamethrower attack he can condense into a blow torch-like beam.
  • Determinator: Fights Chrysalis's Mechagodzilla for over two hours straight.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Is the Guardian Beast of Metal, and as such has several abilities revolving around using it from a degree of ferrokinesis, to spitting magnesium flares, and even absorbing metal to power up.
  • Feed It with Fire: While bullets being worthless against a kaiju are expected, but Yonggary is special as not only do they do nothing, they make him stronger when he absorbs them.
    Enemy Soldier: EAT LEAD FREAK! *Fires only for Yonggary to absorb it* ... he does eat lead...huh...
  • Immune to Bullets: Shooting him is worse than worthless, even in his pony form. Not only do they have no effect on him, he absorbs them and makes him stronger. Comes in handy for shielding allies from fire.
  • In a Single Bound: Is an excellent jumper, in his true form and as a pony, making him surprisingly agile for his size.
  • No-Sell: Shooting him does nothing. In fact, not only does he just shrug it off, he absorbs the bullets and it makes him stronger.
  • The Cape: His personality in a nutshell. His first action when Chrysalis attacks the wedding is to jump between the King and Queen and some armed terrorists and protect them.

Raiga

  • Shock and Awe: The Guardian Beast of it, and thus has this as her main power. Pony Rangers!Celestia exploits this to create the Thunderzords.

Xenilla

  • Adaptation Name Change: His name is Xenilla instead of the canonical Space Godzilla, just like in the fic this particular version of the character came from.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Like Junior he leads his own faction, the Mutations, and is in charge because he's the strongest with only Destroyah rivaling him.
  • Clones Are People, Too: Xenilla is technically a clone of Junior's father, but has a completely different personality from him and instead sees himself as Junior's brother.
  • Deflector Shields: Has a barrier he can use to protect himself from attacks.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Leaves Junior and the Mane Six be for the moment because he acknowledges that seven on one aren't good odds.
  • Psychic Radar: Shares the same one as Junior, which is how he found him in the mane six.
  • Truly Single Parent: Has two 'sons', Obsidius and Krystalak, he created from his crystals. This confuses him as while Rarity resembles the latter, he senses no similarities between them.

Zetton

  • Achilles' Heel: He needs his arms to be in specific poses to use most of his special abilities, so if they are immobilized, he can't use them. He also can't teleport if he's touching something.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Godzilla Jr. blows his arm off.
  • Arc Villain: Will be the main villain of the arc.
  • Attack Reflector: Is able to absorb an opponent's beam and use it to fire an attack that multiplies the power several-fold.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: The yellow spot on his face isn't his eye, the yellow patches on his chest are.
  • The Dreaded: He is feared by the Ultras for killing so many of them. The reason why the Ultras didn't show up during Final Wars was because their enemies spread a rumor that Zetton was attacking another planet, so they moved to stop him.
  • Dynamic Entry: Makes his presence known by launching a fireball at the group, though Junior counters it with his atomic breath.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Is 20 meters taller than Junior.
  • Expy: According to Word of God, he was inspired and based off of Combustion Man character wise.
  • Hero Killer: Has killed Ultras in the past, and Meddock believes he could kill Junior. He's at least able to give Junior a serious fight.
  • Implacable Man: No matter how far his target runs or how injured he gets, he'll never stop chasing them.
  • Left Stuck After Attack: Punches Pinkie Pie during the battle with him, but as she's a Blob Monster in her Terran form his hand gets stuck in her and whatever she's made of is extremely sticky, resulting in getting his hand stuck in her. Even after she lets him go, part of her remains stuck to him and blocks his teleporation as well as causing him to get stuck to a mountain at one point.
  • Playing with Fire: Can fire powerful and explosive fireballs.
  • Rogues-Gallery Transplant: Is typically an Ultraman villain. It's even lampshaded with Alien Zetton Meddock noting he's fought, and killed, Ultras before.
  • Silent Antagonist: He doesn't communicate in any way and Junior notes that his 'Z-Ton' sound isn't actually a vocalization in any way, rather being the sound of his fireballs charging up.
  • Super Strength: His strength is on par with Junior's and he can crush an Ultra's nearly indestructible Color Timer.
  • Teleport Spam: Can teleport and uses it to stay at range and fire at Junior until he figures out a way to bring him in close.

     In Between Inn 

Tenth Dimensional Pinkie Pie

  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Turns out the form she appears in is this, as her true form, as shown with her Rainbow Dash, is an impossibly gigantic entity stretching on in all directions for eternity and with aspects incomprehensible even to a universe eating Eldritch Abomination.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Apparently from an Equestria where they did this, and thus is now a tenth dimensional being.
  • Adorable Abomination: Is an all powerful tenth dimensional entity who is described as feeling like touching a universe...but she's still Pinkie Pie.
  • Energy Beings: At least looks like one.
  • More Than Three Dimensions: Is an tenth dimensional being, which results in her being a Reality Warper and able to make a bed and breakfast in the Void Between the Worlds.
  • Mundane Utility: Is able to warp reality with a thought...and uses it to run a bed and breakfast between multiverses.
  • Nice Girl: Tenth dimensional being or not, she's still Pinkie Pie. Her response to seeing Factory Scootaloo's depressed state is to offer her ice cream to make her feel better.
  • Reality Warper: The reason everything is free at her bed and breakfast: she's capable of warping reality with a thought.
  • Winged Unicorn: Appears as an Alicorn, though she's something else entirely.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: As shown with her Rainbow Dash, her true form is this, being so incomprehensible even universe eating Eldritch Abomination tier creatures can't comprehend it.

Tenth Dimensional Rainbow Dash

Tenth Dimensional Twilight Sparkle

  • More Than Three Dimensions: Is an tenth dimensional being, which results in her being a Reality Warper.
  • No-Sell: Intercepts an attack by 'Empress' Twilight for the Mane Six just by standing in the way. The attack has zero effect on her and is described as being the equal of a bee trying to sting a Kaiju.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: After being pushed too far by 'Empress' Twilight, she gives her one.
  • Time Stands Still: Or rather, she stands still in time. She can choose to simply stop moving in the fourth dimension, giving the appearance she's stopped time.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: Her true form is unbelievably massive to the point of dwarfing universes, seems to stretch on in all directions to eternity, and has aspects to it even an Eldritch Abomination can't comprehend it.

Tenth Dimensional Rarity

Tenth Dimensional Applejack

Tenth Dimensional Fluttershy

Tenth Dimensional Celestia

  • Big Good: Seems to still be this, as she recruited an omniverse spanning group of Bearers (or beings with something equal) to defeat Tenth Dimensional Tirek.
  • Me's a Crowd: Spoke to all the Bearers she gathered at the same time, each Celestia acting independent but also clearly being the same thing as the main Tenth Dimensional Celestia.
  • More Than Three Dimensions: Is an tenth dimensional being, which results in her being a Reality Warper.
  • Reality Warper: Is capable of gathering innumerable Bearers from across the omniverse and then return them to the exact moment they left.
  • Time Master: Was able to pull her army of Bearers from across all existence and return them to the very moment she took them. Some of her doubles also seemed to be manipulating time so they could have conversations with each individual group of Bearers at the same time and all end in the exact same moment.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: Her true form is unbelievably massive to the point of dwarfing universes, seems to stretch on in all directions to eternity, and has aspects to it even an Eldritch Abomination can't comprehend it.

Tenth Dimensional Luna.

Tenth Dimensional Santa

Tenth Dimensional Tirek.

  • Eldritch Abomination: Plays this more straight than the other Tenth Dimensional ponies, as he's actively malevolent. He also absorbed one of these to ascend to this level.
  • Fusion Dance: Is the result of the Tirek of the Tenth Dimensional Ponies' world (who couldn't ascend naturally due to his selfish and materialistic nature) merging with countless of his other selves and an Eldritch Abomination.
  • More Than Three Dimensions: Is an tenth dimensional being, which results in him being a Reality Warper.
  • Reality Warper: Can bend reality to his whim like all the tenth dimensional beings, which allows him to do things like create and hurl entire universes.

    Rainbow Factory 
  • Dark Fic: Based on one of the most famous. Rainbow Dash gave it a happy ending though.

Rainbow Dash

Princess Celestia

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate version of Celestia.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Is not happy about the Rainbow Factory and reacts to its existence accordingly. She also calls out the Cloudsdale ponies who think an institution based on the murder of innocent children is worth the economic benefits and allows Factory Scootaloo to go with prime Rainbow Dash because she can see she needs her at the moment.
  • Shaming the Mob: Tells off those upset about the Factory's destruction for economic reasons, as the alternative was allowing the murder of children.

Scootaloo

  • Action Survivor: Survived the Rainbow Factory long enough for Rainbow Prime to save her.
  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate version of Scootaloo.
  • Broken Bird: Is traumatized due to what happened in the Rainbow Factory, including her mentor trying to murder her and two of her friends dying. This is why Rainbow Dash took her with her when the group departs: to help her recover.
  • Dimensional Traveler: Becomes one when Rainbow Dash decides to take her with them to help her heal from the trauma she experienced.
  • Freak Out!: Has this reaction when G3 Rainbow mentioned making Rainbows, due to her accidentally triggering her trauma from the Rainbow Factory. Both the travelling Rainbow and G3 Rainbow help her get through it.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Joins the group in their multiversal travels so Rainbow can help her recover from the trauma of what happened to her.
  • Harmful to Minors: There's a very good reason she's a Broken Bird: namely seeing the horrors of the Rainbow Factory, including having two of her friends die.
  • Trauma Button: Was nearly murdered by her Rainbow Dash and turned into spectra for rainbows, and had two friends killed in the same way, so as a result, mentioning making rainbows is this for her and she has a Freak Out! when G3 Rainbow does just that. G3 Rainbow and Princess Rarity help her past it, however.

    My Little Pony Tales 
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: After their Super Empowering, they're still learning how to control their newly awakened Earth Pony magic, including Super Strength. As a result, Patch ends up damaging a tree on accident just making natural movements. Applejack promises to teach them how to control it.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: The Main Seven end up getting Rainbow Power forms as a result of an accidental Super Empowering by the Mane Six, just like what happened with the Humane Five. Just like the Humane Five, they'll need to learn how to use them, which they're making progress on. They also have some trouble controlling their newly awakened Earth Pony magic at first.
  • Muggles: The world is pretty much mundane with inhabitants with no obvious magic, due to being in the world of My Little Pony Tales. However, due to the inhabitants having Cutie Marks and mana existing, it's possible that they could develop them. That is until the Mane Six accidentally give the Tales main seven Rainbow Power forms and awaken their Earth Pony magic. It turns out the other tribes and their magic do exist, they're just hidden and have progressed to a similar level as the technology present in the Earth Ponies' civilization.
  • Our Elves Are Better: The native Flutterponies are based off Elves or Fae, though they're not high and mighty as in most portrayals.
  • Psychoactive Powers: The Tales Seven's element powers tend to power up if they're strongly experiencing their Element's trait at the time, such as Patch's Super Strength spiking dramatically or Starlight's Super Toughness becoming...well, tougher. Bonbon's is a stand out, as her power only works when she has faith in someone.
  • Super Mode: The Main Seven get Rainbow Power forms of their own due to an accidental Super Empowering by the Mane Six, though have no idea how to actually use them at first. They gradually figure it out.
  • The '90s: The world is currently at the equal of this.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Every fight the Tales Seven have been in so far has had them use non-lethal tactics exclusively.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: The reason the Tales main seven weren't called in to help with the Flim Flam Brothers invasion despite having Rainbow Power forms and thus being just as powerful: unlike the Mane Six and Humane Six, they have no actual experience in world saving, only using their powers for entry level heroics at the moment. They get better over time.
  • Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: The Tales Seven end up in this situation due to becoming what amounts to their universe's first superheroes while still being high school teenagers.

Starlight

  • Alternate Self: Subverted. The visiting Mane six wonder if she is Starlight Glimmer's, but find no indication of it.
  • An Axe to Grind: Her Paladin armor's weapon is one, due to her natural durability from her power making up for the fewer defensive options.
  • No-Sell:
    • Her unique power as Element of Diligence is Super Toughness; as a result, she just shrugs off getting hit full speed by an out of control carriage.
    • Apparently she and the others stopped a bank robbery, and she did this to a punch from one of them. The guy broke his hand.
    • With her armor on, she can shrug off high caliber bullets, though she still feels them even if they don't do any actual damage.
  • Super Toughness: Her unique power as Element of Diligence. While saving a colt from a speeding carriage, she's hit full force and sent flying through a crate, but doesn't have a scratch on her and just shrugs it off. The group doesn't know the upper threshold of it yet, and she's hesitant to overestimate it. With her armor equipped, she can at least tank high caliber bullets.
  • The Reliable One: Is diligent and reliable in everything she does. Her Element of Harmony is even Diligence.

Sweetheart

Melody

  • BFS: Her Paladin Armor weapon is a greatsword, due to her power negating her being tired out by the heavy weapon while letting her hit like a truck.
  • Determinator: Her Element of Harmony is Endurance, reflecting how she can be this when it's something she wants.
  • Girl Group: Her band, the Rockin' Beats.
  • Save the Villain: Teams up with Patch to save a Neo-Hooviet soldier: Melody uses the flat of her greatsword to steer a Neo-Hooviet soldier's fall away from a deep pit, and Patch slaps the soldier down with her club to land flat on her back rather than break her neck.
  • Victory by Endurance: Her Element of Endurance's ability is infinite stamina. No matter what, she will never tire no matter what happens. Exploited when the group fights Ahuizotl's Caballeron, as she uses it to wear him out enough for Patch to get the upper-hand on him.

Bright Eyes

  • Fainting: Faints upon seeing Rainbow Dash fly and knowing she's real.
  • For Great Justice: Her Element of Harmony is Justice, reflecting her desire to see everyone be treated just and fairly.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Goes into a minor one due to the existence of magic giving her worldview a pretty big jolt. Twilight helps her through it, and she becomes rather excited about witnessing First Contact with what amounts to extradimensional aliens.
  • Parrying Bullets: Figures out how to do this with her Super Reflexes, though it takes multiple tries to actually manage it and she can't do so consistently, with her armor protecting her enough to figure it out. Justified, as she's less seeing the bullet in midair and deflecting it as seeing the shooter pulling the trigger and having the reaction time to intercept it while it's still firing. Patch is impressed. Twilight gives her suit an upgrade to include two bracers on her forelegs for this expressed purpose, which due to being larger make it easier to do it than trying to hit them with her thin rapier blade.
  • Royal Rapier: Her Paladin Armor weapon is one, to go with her Element Power's ability to pick out precise weaknesses. Notably the only one of the seven who's weapon requires significant skill to use, as her power makes up for her relative inexperience.
  • Sherlock Scan: Her Element of Justice power can let her do this, giving her the ability to briefly speed up her brain's processing ability to the point time seems to slow down and allowing her to quickly analyze things around her.
  • The Smart Girl: Is very intelligent, to the point she and Twilight can have in depth conversations on things the other ponies can't understand.
  • Super Reflexes: Her Element of Justice allows her to briefly speed up her brain's processing ability to take in everything around her much quicker than normal, giving the illusion of everything briefly moving far slower than normal.
  • The Spock: Is noted as being quite logically minded, which is why she's shaken up by suddenly being faced with real magic.

Patch

  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Admits during the Winter Wedding Arc that she finally got the adventure she wanted against a genuine, high tier supervillain...and her childhood friend and her family are the targets.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Her Paladin armor weapon is a mace. According to Twilight, this was because her super strength benefits more from an impact weapon she can move with more force and speed than a heavy weapon her strength would allow her to lift but not really provide extra benefit. It's also a simple weapon to use, meaning her lack of combat experience is less of a problem.
  • Comes Great Responsibility: After spending most of her time following her Super Empowering enjoying the thrill of being a superhero, seeing Rosie and her family being targeted by a supervillain makes her realize this and get serious.
  • Golden Super Mode: Her Rainbow Power form has gold as the hair stripe and aura color, though isn't any different than her fellows.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Rushes into fighting Emperor Ahuizotl's Caballeron (in her defense, he was also about to set off a Doomsday Device if she hadn't) and this ends with her getting her flank kicked and needing the others to come to her aid. She is called out on this. She gets over it during the Winter Wedding Arc.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: After realizing she might have been into being a superhero for the wrong reasons when Chrysalis's Evil Plan puts Rosie and her family in danger, she goes into this mode to stop her plan and actually comes up with a rather brilliant one. As in the original series, if Patch is invested in something, she can be surprisingly competent.
  • Jumped at the Call: Enthusiastically jumps headfirst into the whole 'First Contact with extradimensional aliens' thing. She's also the most excited about the Super Empowering the group got, and apparently been using it to more or less be a superhero since then. She's also disappointed they weren't called in to help fight the Flim Flam Brothers invasion.
  • Plucky Girl: Fits, being energetic, optimistic, and brave. Her Element of Harmony even reflects this, being Courage.
  • Save the Villain: Sees a Neo-Hooviet soldier falling towards a pit, and teams up with Melody to save her: Melody uses the flat of her greatsword to steer the soldier's fall away from a deep pit, and Patch slaps them down with her club to land flat on her back, rather than break her neck as she would have if they'd let her fall.
  • Super Strength: Her power as Element of Courage is this, by Earth Pony standards. She can lift four large fallen trees and carry them with very little effort. Her strength increases when she's fighting with genuine bravery as well, enough to beat down a thick, solid steel door and send it flying several feet. Eventually she's shown to be able to overpower a forklift and flip it over if she can anchor herself.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: She's very strong after getting Super Strength from her Element of Courage. The problem is that she isn't all that skilled at actually fighting and while she can overpower some people more experienced than she is if they are much weaker, when she runs into someone as strong as she is, she gets her butt kicked. She starts getting trained by Megan to remedy this.
  • Weirdness Magnet: Is noted as attracting a lot of weird situations, though her friends didn't believe her about most of them until they met extradimensional aliens. Comes in handy, as she's friends with the Princess of the Isle of Pony and is able to help with First Contact by contacting her.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Bright Eyes and her friends call her out on rushing head long into a fight with Emperor Ahuizotl's Caballeron and nearly getting herself killed, as while they were the only ones close enough to stop it, she should've at least called the rest of the Seven to help her.

Clover

  • Armed Legs: Her Paladin armor weapon is a blade on each leg for use with her ballerina skills.
  • Born Lucky: Her special talent is luck, both good and bad.
  • Born Unlucky: Her special talent is luck, both good and bad. Though Melody notes her talent might be good luck and she's just really clumsy.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Her ability as Element of Humility may sound strange, but it comes very much in handy. Particularly when it turns out she can tell if an enemy is worn down enough for their side to make the move to defeat yet.
  • Humble Hero: Her Element of Harmony is Humility.
  • The Klutz: Is rather klutzy and at one point trips and falls into a bush just turning to show her Cutie Mark.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Melody notes that it's not exactly clear if the bad luck part of her Special Talent is genuine or she's just a klutz.
  • Seers: Her power as Element of Humility is a specialized form of this. She has the ability to see whether what she or her side are considering doing and is beyond their capability to do and how difficult it will be, so they know rather to try to do it that way or change plans to something that will work. Word of God describes it as the power to never overestimate her side's abilities.

Bonbon

  • Alternate Self: Is implied to be an alternate universe version of Bonbon from the prime universe.
  • Big Eater: She loves her sweets and eats a lot. Because of this, she's happy her Super Empowering came with a heightened metabolism that means her eating habits are now healthy for her and she's actually lost some weight. Which makes her goal of being a model considerably easier to accomplish.
  • Blade on a Stick: Her Paladin armor weapon is a spear. It was chosen because her combat ability isn't all that high and a spear keeps enemies at a distance and requires very little skill to use.
  • Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Has this as an explicit superpower, as her Element of Faith allows her to power up others substantially if she believes and has faith in them.
  • Formerly Fat: Not quite fat, but she was pudgier due to her being a Big Eater. After her Super Empowering, her metabolism is heightened and she loses the weight and becomes thinner, as a fully empowered Earth Pony requires far more calories to remain healthy than an unawakened one.
  • No-Self Buffs: While her power as the Element of Faith lets her power up others she believes in, it doesn't provide any sort of buff to herself which is why her armor is more focused on defense than the others.
  • Psychoactive Powers: Her Element of Faith power relies on her believing and having faith in others to work and is directly proportional to the amount of it she has in them.
  • Support Party Member: Her Element of Faith's power is solely to power up others she believes in and gives her no added power.

Teddy

  • Berserk Button: Don't insult Sweetheart around him.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Is a bad boy, but has a heart to him. Particularly when it involves Sweetheart.
  • Official Couple: Is Sweetheart's coltfriend.
  • Papa Wolf: As Sweetheart's coltfriend, Sweetheart states that he's Spike's 'father' in a sense, or at least father figure. When tasked by her with protecting him during the Tower Beyond the Sky Arc, he takes it very seriously and is quite protective of him. In the end when the group finally gain the upper hoof on the agent chasing them, Teddy pounds him for threatening Spike.

Ace

  • It's All About Me: Has some selfish tendencies, such as needing to be told that he could be famous if he doesn't wreck the First Contact thing.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's selfish and narcissistic, but he's not a bad person. He cares enough to help Teddy protect Spike during the Tower Beyond the Sky Arc.
  • The Tooth Hurts: He doesn't believe Spike literally eats gemstones, so he tries one himself thinking it's rock candy. It's not, and he gets a chipped tooth. Fortunately, Sweetheart has Healing Hands from her Element of Love, and heals him quickly, but it wasn't pleasant.

Lancer

  • Nice Guy: Is quite nice and polite, even offering to pay for the visitor's food at the ice cream shop when he finds out they don't have any money.
  • The Smart Guy: Is this, which is one reason that Bright Eyes likes him.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Is rich, but a polite and goodhearted colt.

Spike

  • Alternate Self: To Spike.
  • Badass Adorable: He may be an adorable baby dragon, but that doesn't stop him from saving Teddy from a Neo-Hooviet agent with his firebreath.
  • Breath Weapon: As a dragon, he can breath fire, but doesn't manage to until the Tower Beyond the Sky Arc, where he uses it to save Teddy from a Neo-Hooviet agent. While weak and small, it's enough to give the guy first degree burns.
  • Cheerful Child: Is a cheerful newborn dragon.
  • Happily Adopted: Imprints on Sweetheart as the first thing he saw when he hatched and adores her as his mother.
  • Parents in Distress: Saves Teddy, who he sees as his father (something Sweetheart and Teddy also see as fact), from a Neo-Hooviet Agent and breaths fire for the first time. Teddy quickly repays him by beating the crap out of the agent for threatening to kidnap Spike.
  • One-Man Army: Will be this some day when he's fully grown, which is why he was considered one of the Seven Sleeping Armies.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Was one of the Seven Sleeping Armies, with his egg enchanted so it'd only hatch when The Chosen One appeared. Sweetheart turned out to be the one.

President Pony

  • Alternate Self: Is implied to be an alternate universe version of Mayor Mare.
  • A Dog Named "Dog": Is a pony named Pony. Lampshaded.
  • Big Good: Of Ponyland, being a reasonable president who helps establish diplomatic relations with Equestria without much issue. She also works with Celestia to build Seiryu/Mechagojira to counter any potential kaiju attacks to either world. She also dons the RANGER V2 Armor to protect people during the Tower Beyond the Sky Arc.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Subverted; she not only remembers that Patch and company helped save a critically endangered species, but respects them a good bit for it. She gives the Tales Seven medals for their actions during the Winter Wedding Arc, which involved being a major factor in the destruction of Chrysalis's nuclear submarine due to Patch finding the coordinates escaping Chrysalis's base.
  • Kneel Before Frodo: Bows before Megan when she enters the Alliance's discussion room, as there's literally a religion revolving around Megan in her universe.
  • Our Presidents Are Different: Of the 'President Personable' variety. She's the president of Ponyland and a Reasonable Authority Figure. Becomes 'President Action' during the Tower Beyond the Sky Arc when she dons the RANGER V2 prototype to help protect her constituents from The Remnant of Chrysalis's Network. She intended to give it to Sincere Heart as an upgrade, but he wasn't there and thus she did it herself.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Is President of Ponyland, but is willing to hear the Mane Six out and sets up diplomatic relations with Equestria with little issue, being more concerned with First Contact going smoothly than anything else. She even remembered the Tales 7 saving the Green Winged Song Bird and respects them for it.

King Skyline

  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Subverted; he remembers Patch and company reunited him with his long lost daughter and is immensely grateful for it, which is why he hears them out about the Mane Six. He also knights the Tales Seven for their actions during the Winter Wedding Arc, one of which was saving his family.
  • The Good King: Is the king of the Isle of Pony and a Reasonable Authority Figure.
  • Good Parents: Loves his daughter and one of the big reasons First Contact goes so well is because Patch and company reunited them and he respects her enough to set up the meeting with Twilight on her say so.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Is King of the Isle of Pony and like President Pony is willing to hear the Mane Six out and set up diplomatic relations with Equestria. The entire reason he hears Patch out is he's sincerely grateful for Patch reuniting him with his daughter and felt she deserved his trust in return.

Queen Starburst

Princess Rosie

Sincere Heart

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate Shining Armor.
  • Official Couple: Proposes to his girlfriend Winter Song during Hearth's Warming, and their marriage is the focus of the Winter Wedding Arc.
  • Powered Armor: Uses the RANGER System, a set of magitek powered armor based off the Paladin System but designed for use by those without awakened magic.
  • Super Prototype: His RANGER Armor is the prototype version, which is too stressful on the body for anypony but him to use.
  • Walking Armory: His Powered Armor is loaded with weaponry.

Princess Brightglow

  • Alien Blood: Downplayed, due to being a hybrid, but her blood is a lighter shade of pink than normal and bioluminescent.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Arrives to rescue Patch and Rosie from Chrysalis's minions, giving Patch the opening to activate her Paladin Armor and get free.
  • Disappeared Dad: Never met her alien father due to Equus not being ready for First Contact yet. Thankfully, she finally does when the Celestials of her universe are contacted.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Is a Pegasus/Celestial Pony hybrid.
  • Hybrid Power: Being half Celestial Pony means she has the powers of a Pegasus and a Solar Sailor. This means she can do things like create blindingly bright ball lightning for a combination flash bang and Shock and Awe attack.
  • Light 'em Up: Can generate blinding flashes of pink light, due to being half Celestial Pony.
  • Politically Active Princess: Was sent to the Earth Ponies to make First Contact as her kingdom's emissary and ambassador.
  • Princesses Rule: Subverted; she's a Princess in the sense of being the daughter of a queen, as her mother still rules the kingdom. She isn't even the Crown Princess, that would be her elder sister Dazzle Glow.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Turns out to be a Princess of the Pegasi Kingdom, her mother being Queen Star Catcher. She was also sent to be the Pegasi's emissary to the Earth Ponies and handles herself very well in combat.
  • Warrior Princess: The Pegasi are a race of warriors, and Brightglow is no different. She gets it from her mother.

Queen Star Catcher

  • Action Girl: While well past her prime, she is the ruler of a warrior race and an excellent warrior herself. The only reason she didn't take part in the Isle of Pony battle herself was distance.
  • Alternate Self: To Starcatcher from the World of Empathy.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Is a reasonable, nice queen who gladly leaps into the fray to save the Isle of Pony. She's also a trained, highly skilled warrior whose Weapon of Choice is the surprisingly brutal Cloud Shark Tooth Sword.
  • Hero of Another Story: She went on an epic adventure in her youth to reunite Ponykind. She managed to succeed with all but the Earth Ponies (due to having the misfortune of doing her quest during the second World War), which lead her on a long journey across the world with many adventures.
  • Interspecies Romance: Fell in love with a Celestial Pony who crash landed in the Pegasi capital, who was the father of her daughters. It wasn't until First Contact the two could actually get together properly, and he now rules alongside her as her king.
  • The High Queen: The Queen of this world's Pegasi, and a good and just ruler. When she hears that the Isle of Pony is under attack, she's the first of the rulers to want to vote for help.

Queen Sparkle

Princess Winter Song

  • Alternate Self: Of Princess Cadence.
  • Damsel in Distress: Is kidnapped and replaced by her universe's Chrysalis.
  • Official Couple: With Sincere Heart and their wedding being the focus of the Winter Wedding Arc.
  • Princesses Rule: Subverted; she's a Princess on account of being Queen Starburst's younger sister and thus not even in line for the throne with Princess Rosie being recovered. She's still an important ambassador thought.

Squire

  • Backup from Otherworld: Possesses his old armor (now one of the Armor of Valiant Warriors) to assist against Chrysalis's network once the Chamber of Seven Sleeping Armies is awakened. He does this to repay Patch for keeping his story alive into modern day.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Is the ghost of a knight.

Princess Spring Heart/'Chrysalis'

  • Alternate Self: Of Queen Chrysalis.
  • And I Must Scream: Her ultimate fate is to be banished to a lifeless Equus in a dead universe, cursed to be entirely alone forever. And she can't get out of it via suicide either: she's also made immortal, so she can serve one year for every year she stole from her victims. AND there are kill systems and monitoring posts all around the planet to make sure she can't escape. Ever.
  • Arc Villain: Of the Winter Wedding Arc.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Subverted at every turn; when she has Patch and Rosie captive, she only spares them because she needs to keep them alive to Make It Look Like an Accident later as part of her coup and gives her minions thorough orders to make sure they don't escape until then, and only doesn't stick around to see them followed through because the wedding is started and it's the corner stone of her entire plan. Patch has to think very fast and get help from Brightglow, someone Chrysalis couldn't have possibly anticipated, to escape and wreck her plan.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Winter Song and Starburst's Abel.
  • The Chessmaster: Her plan was very thorough, with multiple backup plans to fall back on and contingencies that let her nearly succeed even with her comparably limited resources compared to the previous two 'Crisis' level baddies.
  • Code Name: Her real name is Spring Heart, Chrysalis is a code name from her time as a KGB agent that ultimately became her supervillain alias.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Came with a Deadman Switch, a massive army, and even a Humongous Mecha when her primary plan was to usurp the throne with cunning and intellect.
  • Deadman Switch: Had one surgically implanted in her chest. If she dies or the switch is destroyed, a nuclear submarine will launch a nuclear missile at the Isle of Pony and take everyone down with her.
  • Dented Iron: She's a powerful warrior, yes, but Reality Ensues during her Last Villain Stand. Badly wounded, exhausted, and with her armor barely holding itself together, she's worn down sufficiently for the Tales Seven to defeat her despite their experience difference.
  • De-Power: The Tales Seven use the Rainbow Powers to strip her of not only her Powered Armor and stolen magical artifacts, but her Earth Pony magic as well, even her 'invisible hand' spell.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: A high ranking former KGB agent in charge of a massive and dangerous criminal network that was powerful enough to nearly take the Isle of Pony by force, and that was only when taking it by cunning and manipulation failed.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Was already a well trained KGB agent and one of the best, then she gained Earth Pony magic and a suit of Powered Armor.
  • Evil Aunt: Is Rosie's aunt, and a sociopathic monster.
  • Evil Twin: Had herself made to look like Winter Song via plastic surgery, so unlike the prime Chrysalis she looks identical to her physically instead of via shapeshifting magic. Doubly so, as she's actually Winter Song's sister.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Looks like Winter Song but is actually a sociopathic terrorist and The Usurper. Doubly so as even before stealing her sister's face, she looked more like Mirror Chrysalis than the prime one.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Her real name, Spring Heart, isn't exactly what one would expect a dangerous, sociopathic terrorist to be called.
  • Humongous Mecha: An Evil Knockoff of Seiryu resembling the Showa Mechagodzilla.
  • It's All About Me: Her motivations, as with her prime self, are ultimately selfish to the core. She tries to murder her own family to usurp the throne, is willing to kill everyone at the wedding to accomplish it, and is willing to destroy the entire Isle of Pony and everyone on it rather than die and fail to achieve her ambitions.
  • Last Villain Stand: After Yonggary and Applejack destroy Mechagodzilla, her sub is destroyed, the Sleeping Armies are awoken in the Isle's favor, and reinforcements arrive, she makes her last stand against the Tales Seven despite having no chance of her forces winning at that point.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Reveals she's actually Princess Rosie's exiled aunt, and the reason Rosie was Lost Orphaned Royalty to begin with.
  • Persona Non Grata: Was banished from the Isle of Pony for attempting to kill her sister and usurp the throne. Her final fate is banishment to a dead universe after being made immortal and sentenced to live one year for every year of life she's stolen from another.
  • Powered Armor: Uses a knockoff of the RANGER armor that makes her resemble her prime counterpart.
  • Renegade Russian: Played With. She's a foreigner, but was also a Hooviet KGB agent before she and her network vanished when the union collapsed.
  • Super Mode: Her armor turns out to be able to shed its heavy weapons and activate a Paladin Armor type mode using her magical crown as its power source, which is far stronger than its RANGER mode and much faster.
  • Supervillain: Played more as this than her prime self as beings like her are much less common in her home universe than in Equestria.
  • Surgical Impersonation: As she's from Ponyland and a normal Earth Pony, she can't just shapeshift into Winter Song, and instead had herself made to look identical to her by plastic surgery.
  • Taking You with Me: Had a Deadman Switch implanted in her chest so that if she dies, the Isle of Pony will get a nuclear missile launched at it.
  • The Usurper: Intends to usurp the throne of the Isle of Pony after being exiled for attempting to do so in the past.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Manages to maintain her composure after Patch interrupts at the Wedding and foils her Plan A, but once she's knocked out of her armor in the resulting fight, she has a breakdown and summons her mecha to try in a livid rage. Once her nuclear sub is discovered and on the verge of being sunk, she has an even bigger one, ordering it to unleash a nuclear holocaust before it goes. Once the Armor of the Valiant Warriors and Shisa are awoken, she snaps and starts screaming for everyone opposing her to die and stops caring about friendly fire.
  • Villainous Valor: As rotten and evil as she is, she does have one positive trait: she won't quit until she literally cannot fight any longer.
  • Villain Song: Has a version of "This Day Aria" like her prime self, but it's a rock remix to fit the popularity of the genre in the early 90s where Tales takes place.

'Hercules Beetle'

  • Code Name: Hercules Beetle is his code name, not his true one.
  • Co-Dragons: With Kabuto and Digger Wasp.
  • Noble Demon: He's not really an evil guy, so much as following orders from an evil person.
  • Powered Armor: Like Chrysalis he wears one, with his built like a tank and powerful enough to fight Hegemony Space Marines head on.
  • Size Shifter: When his fight with Cerberus starts going south, he activates an emergency system that makes him grow to giant size. Unfortunately, this also exposes a weak point in his armor...
  • Super Soldier: Was enhanced by Kabuto to be one, and his armor makes him more so.
  • Would Not Shoot a Civilian: Thoroughly abides by this. He even calls off his fight with the Space Legionaries for a moment to get some children out of harm's way.

'Kabuto'

  • Code Name: Kabuto is his code name; his real one isn't.
  • Commie Nazis: Justified; he's a Nazi equivalent death camp Mad Doctor who decided to defect to the Hooviet Union to avoid being prosecuted for his crimes.
  • Cyborg: Unlike his fellows, his suit isn't just Powered Armor, he's a cyborg and by his own admission more machine than pony now.
  • Evil Old Folks: Is an old stallion, and a former Nazi death camp Mad Doctor.
  • Mad Doctor: He was apparently literally the In-Universe version of Mengele.
  • Our Werebeasts Are Different: Were!Fluttershy bites him as his punishment, infecting him with her Wereskunk strain.
  • Smelly Skunk: Is bitten and infected by Were!Fluttershy, turning him into a Wereskunk. This is unfortunate for his guards after his escape, as when he transforms and frees his own prisoners, he typically skunks them.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Inverted, he's infected by Were!Fluttershy, resulting in him turning into a Wereskunk at night. While far stronger than his unaltered form (as the transformation also pushed out his cybernetics and makes new ones not take), it also has Fluttershy's morality, making it the good side. He managed to escape capture, but due to this, he's unable to do anything evil because his Wereskunk form just frees his captives every night.
  • Super Soldier: Is a powerful Cyborg.
  • Those Wacky Nazis: Is a former Nazi or pony equal of one.

'Digger Wasp'

  • Blessed with Suck: Digger Wasp can see fragmentary visions of the future since he was a colt, which should be cool... except that all his visions are of death, disaster and destruction that could or will occur, with him mostly powerless to not see them when they come or prevent the horrors shown from occurring. Needless to say, it doesn't do wonders to his sanity and peace of mind.
  • Cursed with Awesome: At the same time, Digger Wasp's future visions become an incredibly useful asset to him in his time as an agent of the KGB and his superior Chrysalis, allowing him to shoot or destroy with maximum efficiency by showing him the best way to take out almost any target, honing his reflexes and accuracy until he a highly effective sniper and combatant, even before his Super Soldier enhancements.
  • Code Name: Digger Wasp is his code name, his true one is unknown.
  • Co-Dragons: With Hercules and Kabuto.
  • Cold Sniper: Is an assassin Super Soldier and rarely, if ever, speaks. This has to do with the unique 'gift' he has that made him so incredibly effective...
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He deeply loves his sister, 'Jewel Wasp', and is obsessed with preventing her death that he has foreseen.
  • Invisibility Cloak: His suit has one built in to add to his capability as an assassin.
  • Seers: Can see the future, which is a natural ability of his.
  • Super Soldier: Was enhanced by Kabuto to have Super Reflexes and enhanced aiming skills. His armor also has an active cloaking system. And that's not even

'Thorax'

  • Alternate Self: Of Thorax.
  • Code Name: Thorax is his code name rather than his true one.
  • Heel Realization: Being asked to kill a pair of teenage girls finally got too much for his conscience to let him live with and he turns on Chrysalis as a result.
  • Mook–Face Turn: Turns against Chrysalis when his morality gets the better of him, and instead saves Rosie and Patch.
  • Not What I Signed Up For: He decidedly didn't sign up with the knowledge he'd be asked to shoot a pair of teenage girls in cold blood, and being asked to do so makes him turn on Chrysalis.

'Pharynx'

  • Alternate Self: To Prime Pharynx.
  • Big Brother Bully: Was this, but as with his prime self, mainly out of a desire to get his little brother to toughen up.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He loves his little brother and would never outright turn against him.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Takes out a squad of Hooviets with a grenade before they can open fire on the Tales Seven and their allies.
  • Chummy Commies: Is clear he's still dedicated to the Hooviet Union's cause and a communist, but willingly defected from Chrysalis's group because he couldn't justify killing innocent people like she intended.
  • Code Name: Pharynx is his code name in this universe.
  • Defector from Decadence: Defects along with Thorax because while a proud Hooviet, he's a soldier, not a murderer, and didn't sign on to kill innocent civilians.
  • Not What I Signed on For: He signed up to try and restore the Hooviet Union or create a new land with the same political system, not murder innocent people. To quote him, he's a soldier; not a murderer.
  • So Proud of You: Admits he's proud of Thorax for toughening up enough to stand by his ideals and refuse to kill innocent people for Chrysalis.

Assassin Bug

  • Avenging the Villain: Admits that Chrysalis might have been a monster, but she had his genuine loyalty and he seeks to avenge her defeat.
  • Disney Villain Death: Throws himself off Olympus Station and into Equus's atmosphere.
  • Driven to Suicide: Kills himself by throwing himself into Equus's atmosphere when beaten.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: Feels this way about the Chrysalis Network after the Winter Wedding, having gone from one of the mightiest military forces on the planet that nearly beat the Alliance themselves to struggling against a handful of heroes. Bright Eyes concurs, as does Patch, with the later having no love for them.
  • I Die Free: Chooses to fling himself into Equus's atmosphere rather than be saved by Sweetheart and be captured.
  • Taking You with Me: Attempts to self-destruct when it becomes apparent that he's going to lose, but Bright Eyes cuts the wiring of his suit to prevent it from working.
  • The Heavy: For the Tower Beyond the Sky Arc, as he's not the leader of the remnant and acting in part for a mysterious benefactor, but is still leading the attack.
  • The Remnant: After their defeat on the Isle of Pony, the Chrysalis Network was more or less wiped out, with Assassin Bug and his group being all that's left.

King Onyx

  • Affably Evil: He's a supervillain and secretly backed Chrysalis, but is a genuinely loving husband to his wife and friendly with the heroes.
  • Alternate Self: Of King Sombra. He even looks very close to him in his warlock form.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: Gets two, one to transform into his warlock form and the other to activate his Powered Armor.
  • Composite Character: He's described as being a combination of Sombra and David Xanatos.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Like his prime self, he went to extreme lengths to keep his secret identity hidden and the secret chamber beneath his castle hidden from all but himself and his trusted enforcers.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite being a supervillain, he genuinely loves his wife and son.
  • Happily Married: To Queen Faithful Wish.
  • MacGuffin Delivery Service: Does a twofold version: he spikes the demand for a piece of the Key of Darkness on the black market to convince criminals to steal it and take it somewhere he could easily claim it. If they fail (which they do thanks to the Tales Seven), the Alliance will begin searching for the pieces themselves as a precaution, with him on the coalition searching for them, and will bring all seven to one place for him.
  • Mundane Solution: Spies or informants could be discovered and betray him under interrogation, but he still needs to gather intelligence. Onyx's solution? Turn on the TV and watch the news.
  • Rags to Royalty: Was apparently an orphan before he became king, implying Faithful is the one who's royal by birthright.
  • The Chessmaster: Onyx is a meticulous planner that leaves nothing to chance, with his plans having ways he wins no matter what and being incredibly careful not to leave any evidence of his criminal actions.
  • The Good King: Despite being a supervillain, he's apparently a good ruler in his home country.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Is a well liked ruler and the only reason anyone might suspect he's a supervillain is that he's Sombra's Alternate Self. His wife is also unaware he's a supervillain.
  • Xanatos Gambit:
    • His backing the Chrysalis Network's remnant's attack on the Olympus Station was this: if Assassin Bug won, he could throw his lot in with repairing or rebuilding the Station, giving him a controlling interest in the new station and partial ownership, if Assassin Bug lost, Onyx behaving as a model person and taking heroic actions during the whole mess makes him even more of a Villain with Good Publicity than he already was, thus removing even nearly all suspicion from himself. Fitting, given he's based off David Xanatos himself according to Word of God.
    • Tricking some gangsters into trying to steal the First Piece of the Key of Darkness is also one: they succeed, he gets a piece of the Key, they fail? The Alliance searches for the remaining pieces and will collect them for him. If the Alliance destroys the key pieces, he has an excuse not to free his mother.

Queen Faithful Wish

  • Alternate Self: Of Radiant Hope.
  • Happily Married: To King Onyx.
  • The High Queen: Is a good queen and unaware of her husband's villainy. She's implied to also be the blood ruler of the country while Onyx is king by marriage.

Queen Dark Crystal

  • Alternate Self: Of Rabia.
  • Ancient Evil: Is the one who caused the tribes to divide and isolate in the first place.
  • Evil Matriarch: As in the prime universe, she's Onyx's mother. How this is possible give she's currently imprisoned in a spell book has yet to be revealed. Notably, while he intends to free her, Onyx doesn't seem to like her.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Was Queen of Traneighvania, and also an immensely powerful and evil witch.
  • Leaking Can of Evil: Implied, as she managed to somehow create Onyx while sealed in a spell book.
  • Predecessor Villain: To Onyx, being a previous queen of Traneighvania and also his mother.
  • Real After All: Is first introduced by Onyx as a Traneighvanian myth, but is revealed at the end of the arc to be very real, and also his mother.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: She was imprisoned in her own spell book. King Onyx is currently in possession of it and intends to set her free.
  • Wicked Witch: Is noted as having been an evil witch so immensely powerful that she nearly conquered the world by herself and drove the tribes into their present day isolation.

    My Little Pony G 2 
  • Adaptational Origin Connection: There's no indication the G2 series was connected to the G1 series. Here it's a direct follow up set in the same universe after Megan and company succeeded in defeating all of Ponyland's evils.

Queen Sunsparkle/Sundance

  • Bequeathed Power: She received a great power from the magic throne, but can't consciously activate it at present. Her description of the pony who she met when declared the queen and the shape her Super Mode aura takes on implies she received Queen Majesty's power.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Received some kind of power from the magic throne, but doesn't know how exactly it works just yet.
  • Meaningful Rename: Becoming queen resulted in a name change.
  • Super Mode: When she gets enraged enough to subconsciously trigger the power granted by the throne, she gets a white aura and her power skyrockets to the point she can No-Sell a high powered sniper round and let loose extremely powerful shockwaves. However she can only maintain it for a short time at present and is exhausted when it wears off.
  • Super Senses: Her power from the Red Light of Courage is enhanced eye sight.
  • The Chosen One: Was chosen by a magic throne to be queen.
  • The High Queen: Is the benevolent, but recently crowned, Queen of Ponyland.

Light Heart

Sweet Berry

Princess Silver Swirl

  • Barrier Warrior: Her power from resonating with one of the lights of the Rainbow of Light is to create powerful barriers.
  • Praetorian Guard: Acts as this for Sunsparkle in practice, being far stronger than she is and more experienced.
  • Princesses Rule: Justified: the throne was originally vacant and waiting for The Chosen One to be found, so Silver Swirl was acting as Princess Regent until then.
  • Red Baron: The Guardian Angel.
  • Submissive Badass: While Queen Sunsparkle may one day exceed her, she's currently the strongest pony in her Equus, but relegates herself to Sunsparkle's adviser and bodyguard for now, as Sunsparkle was the one chosen by the magic throne.
  • The Good Chancellor: Her other primary role, as Queen Sunsparkle is still new to the throne and needs an adviser.
  • World's Strongest Man: Is the strongest pony on her Ponyland.

Megan William/The Mother Over the Rainbow

  • Ace Custom: Is given a suit of Advanced RANGER Armor by Ponyland, which in addition to being for a human, the load out is also very different to better suit her skill set.
  • Badass Normal: Has no superpowers of her own, but is very skilled with both a sword and a rifle, as well as very intelligent. She manages to earn the respect of most of the gathered members of the Alliance in short order.
  • Experienced Protagonist: G1 already happened on this world, and Megan was there for all of it. In fact the reason for Ponyland being so nice and peaceful in the first place was because Megan and her friends defeated all its villains and brought peace to it. She shows off this experience by figuring out a compromise for the Alliance using examples from her many past adventures.
  • Famed In-Story: Is comparable to King Arthur or Hercules in terms of being a legendary hero in the mythologies of multiple universes. As such, much of the Alliance instantly respects her.
  • Future Badass: Is the future version of G1 Megan, being far more experienced and even picked up a great deal of skill with a sword and rifle. Her real claim to this is the fact she and the Paradise Ponies won and cleared out Ponyland's supervillain and monster infestation.
  • Good Parents: Spends her time adopting orphan ponies and raising them, and clearly loves them dearly.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Still possesses and is the master of the Rainbow of Light, which in the past she used to destroy her Tirek.
  • Kneel Before Frodo: A number of Alliance leaders bow before her when she arrives because she's essentially their mythologies' version of King Arthur and a borderline Messianic figure.
  • Legendary Weapon: The Rainbow of Light is seen as this by the ponies, as to them it's basically the Excalibur to her King Arthur.
  • Living Legend: She's a legendary heroine in a number of alliance mythologies, and most of those stories are true.
  • Magnetic Hero: Manages to gain the respect of the Alliance fairly quickly, due to being both motherly and tough as nails.
  • Orphanage of Love: Decided to basically convert her home into this when she retired from being an active heroine after bringing peace to Ponyland.
  • Red Baron: "The Mother Over the Rainbow", "Conqueror of a Thousand Monsters", "Giver of Gifts", "Defender of the Stable", "Guiding Light", "Wielder of the Spear of Fire", "Teacher of Knowledge", and "The Great Mother."
  • Retired Badass: Since her Ponyland no longer has any villains, she mainly spends her days raising orphaned ponies as her adopted children. Ponyland no longer has any villains because she and her friends already kicked their butts.
  • Stop Worshipping Me: While she takes it in stride, she does ask the Ponylanders to stop bowing before her when she shows up.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: Sunsparkle calls her to stop the fighting among the Alliance members. She does so.
  • Team Mom: Is essentially this for her entire Ponyland, having been dubbed the Mother Over the Rainbow by many of them. Sunsparkle calls for her to act as this for the Alliance, which she quickly does.
  • The Ageless: According to Word of God, the Rainbow of Light has made her agelessly immortal.

    My Little Pony G 3 
  • Good Is Not Dumb: While very innocent, it's repeatedly mentioned they're not naive or ignorant. Kimono is notably on the same level of intelligence as Twilight.
  • Lady Land: Subverted. Unlike the original show, there are stallions in Ponyland who are treated no differently from the mares and they reproduce sexually (though it's seen as a private, intimate thing only done by couples); it's just the first ponies the Mane Six met were female and Kimono is their ambassador and thus the most common one to appear.
  • Perfect Pacifist People: Due to a heightened sense of empathy indicative of this universe, they're all Actual Pacifists. Unlike many cases, however, they do completely understand the need for violence and defending one's self when explained, even if they hold true to their ideals of pacifism. They also develop their own suit of Powered Armor designed to be a Stone Wall and Support Party Member for others who can fight so they can still help their more combat willing teammates without having to fight themselves.
  • Purity Personified: They're lacking in negative impulses due to their heightened sense of Empathy, and it's this quality that makes them capable of using Innocence Magic. It should be noted that this doesn't make them flawless or perfect; they simply lack the impulses to do wrong or harm others and have other character flaws, such as Minty's clumsiness or Thistle Whistle being somewhat cowardly. They also are not all virgins, as they still reproduce sexually; they simply only do it as an act of love as they have no capacity for lust.
  • Sugar Bowl: It's My Little Pony G3, so it's naturally one of these.
  • The Empath: The reason why their universe lacks negative impulses: they have a heightened sense of empathy for others and thus can't stand the idea of bringing harm to them. This also makes them Actual Pacifists.
  • Training the Peaceful Villagers: Defied, while the G3 ponies do realize violence is necessary, they're still pacifists. However, they don't fall into Suicidal Pacifism either; instead Kimono makes the Bard System so they can provide invaluable support to their more combat willing allies without actually using violence themselves.
  • White Mage: Their variant of the Powered Armor, the Bard System, is this. It has zero offensive abilities, but is designed around healing, buffing, and generally supporting allies in any way possible. As an added bonus, it debuffs those using corruptive forms of magic. This is because they're all Actual Pacifists who refuse to fight themselves but understand they have allies who need to fight and want to help.

Pinkie Pie

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate universe Pinkie Pie.
  • Balloonacy: Is introduced floating down from the sky holding a large number of balloons, which she gives to the Mane Six.
  • Fun Personified: As with any Pinkie Pie.
  • Nice Girl: She's an alternate version of Pinkie Pie from G3, so naturally she's this.

Razzaroo

Rainbow Dash

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate universe version of Rainbow Dash, though she's an Earth Pony.
  • Catchphrase: "Darling", similar to Rarity.
  • The Fashionista: Similar to Prime Rarity, and their fashion sense is even noted as being similar.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Accidentally hits the visiting Scootaloo's Trauma Button by mentioning how rainbows are made. She instantly realizes this when Twilight explains and tries to help her overcome it.
  • Not So Different: Despite them externally appearing to be extremely different, she and Prime Rainbow Dash are both loyal to their friends and have good relationship with their Scootaloo. This is enough for Rainbow to be perfectly happy accepting her as an alternate version of herself. She's also got Super Speed as well.
  • Super Speed: One thing she and Prime Rainbow have in common: she's extremely fast.

Princess Rarity

Kimono

  • Alcohol Hic: Does this after she accidentally gets drunk on salt water, not knowing what it is because on her world it doesn't exist.
  • Ambadassador: Of a Badass Pacifist sort. She's the official ambassador of the World of Empathy, and develops the Bard Armor so she can provide support in a fight. She proves very helpful during the battle with the Storm King, especially since the Innocence Magic it runs on can weaken the Ram Necromancers he got from Ispita. She also learns defensive martial arts from Storm Emperor #35 to defend herself without hurting anyone.
  • Badass Pacifist: Invoked; she is a genuine pacifist like the rest of her world, but desires for her and her people to still be of help to the other universes in a fight without having to use violence themselves. So she invented the Bard Armor, a suit of Powered Armor that while completely lacking offensive abilities has a large number of supportive capabilities. She takes part in the Storm King war and pulls her weight, especially against the Ram Necromancers the Storm King has on loan from Grogar. She also learns purely defensive martial arts from Storm Emperor #35 so she can defend herself without actually hurting anyone. She proves this trope by subduing Riot and his gang in a Curbstomp Battle without ever taking offense and while making sure they don't accidentally kill each other in the process.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: In the victory celebration after the defeat of the Storm King's forces, she ends up drinking a mug of salt water, which doesn't exist in her world and thus she has no clue what it is or what it does. That one mug causes her to get drunk and pass out, after which (and a hangover) she declares she'll never drink it again. This is apparently a universe wide trait, as due to the concept of intoxicating beverages not existing in their universe, the Empathy Worlders have no resistance to it.
  • Intoxication Ensues: Drinks salt water without knowing what it does and gets drunk. Justified as salt water, at least for drinking, doesn't exist in her universe so she literally didn't know what it was or even what getting drunk was. Also, Reality Ensues and while it was comical (as she naturally lacks wicked impulses, she's nothing remotely resembling a bad drunk), both the experience of being drunk and the resulting hangover makes her never want to touch the stuff ever again and results in offering intoxicating drinks to people from her reality to be deemed an improper thing to do.
  • Meaningful Name: She's often shown wearing a kimono, as she did in some G3 books.
  • Mortality Phobia: Downplayed. She admits that she's genuinely scared of the idea of dying a violent death and calls it terrifying, but nonetheless is willing to risk her life despite her fear to help others. She doesn't fear natural death, however, as her fear of unnatural death stems from it not existing in her universe while natural death is.
  • Odd Friendship: Has one with the Ebon Drakes, as while shes a pacifist and they're warriors, they both share a love and respect for sapient life.
  • The Coats Are Off: When Winter Song's wedding is attacked by Chrysalis's forces, she does this with her kimono she was wearing.
  • The Smart Guy: Is the smartest pony in her world, and as such is their main representative to the Alliance. She's also the one who invented their version of the Paladin Armor, the Bard System. According to All There in the Manual materials, she has an IQ equal to Twilight's.
  • Support Party Member: Plays this role for whatever group that she's currently a part of during a fight, as the bard Armor is designed explicitly for this role.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: The Bard Armor completely lacks offensive abilities but makes up for it with sheer versatility in supporting options it has available.
  • The Teetotaler: She becomes this. Justified as her first experience with intoxicating beverages was not pleasant and her biology means she can't drink even a single mug of it without getting drunk.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Becomes a full Badass Pacifist upon developing the Bard Armor. She takes another one upon training under the benevolent Storm Emperor #35 in defensive martial arts.
  • Victory by Endurance: The Bard Armor and her defensive martial arts allow her to do this to Riot and his crew, tanking or dodging everything they throw at her until they collapse from exhaustion and one has a Heel Realization due to her attempts to talk them down.

     Princess Twilight, Ruler of Equestria 
  • For Want of a Nail: In this world, Tirek had killed the princesses after failing to steal their magic and Twilight managed to beat him on her own, leaving her to rule Equestria on her own.

Princess Twilight

Grogar

Bray

  • The Starscream: Dissatisfaction with how he ruled Tamberon and New Tamberon makes him want to overthrow Grogar.
  • And I Must Scream: Ends up being sent to the "dead world" timeline caused by Starlight's meddling in the "Prime" universe. Since Bray was immortal by that point, he's stuck in an empty wasteland forever.

    Gods and Guardians 
  • Alternate Universe: Is an alternate universe to the Gods' War timeline.
  • For Want of a Nail: Diverged from the Gods' War timeline because Shining Armor discovered a contingency plan Princess Amore created after receiving a vision of Ghidorah's eventual coming. He ultimately used it to became a Kaiju to hold off King Ghidorah and help Gojira kill Bagan. As a result, the Princesses never died and Canterlot was never destroyed.

Princess Twilight Sparkle

  • Alternate Self: To both Twilight Prime and Gods' War Twilight.
  • Bequeathed Power: Harmony gave her half of her power after being mortally wounded by Bagan.

Shining Armor

  • Alternate Self: To both Prime Shining Armor and his deceased Gods' War self.
  • Attack Reflector: Can catch beam attacks with one eye and send it right back out the other. He's also capable of keeping the attack in and build it up before releasing it all at once.
  • Barrier Warrior: Still has this despite becoming a kaiju, only know even MORE powerful thanks to his upgrade. Enough so to block Ghidorah's gravity beams.
  • Big Brother Instinct: His first thought when Twilight calls him is she might be in trouble and he checks on her before anything else.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saved Canterlot Castle by putting a shield up just in time to stop Ghidorah's gravity beams.
  • Determinator: Despite being weaker than King Ghidorah, he stalled him for hours until Gojira arrived and still continued fighting until the King of Terror was dead.
  • Gentle Giant: He might be a kaiju, but he's still Shining Armor. His first act upon showing up when his Twilight called him was to carefully check to see if she was okay.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He transferred his soul into a massive crystal golem Princess Amore created as a contingency plan to hold King Ghidorah off until Gojira could arrive to defeat him, saving countless lives. However, in the process, his original body died and he can never turn back into a pony, which he knew going in.
  • Hold the Line: Amore noted that she never intended for whoever became the guardian to singlehandedly kill Ghidorah, only halt him to stop the loss of life until Gojira could show up and then work together. He does exactly that, for several hours.
  • I Shall Taunt You: Spends the fight with Ghidorah taunting him to try and get under his skin.
  • Kaiju: He became a kaiju to hold off King Ghidorah.
  • One-Winged Angel: Transferred his soul into a kaiju body to fight King Ghidorah and hold him off.
  • Tunnel King: Can burrow through the ground, apparently fast enough to appear next to Twilight's castle when called for. His first attack on Ghidorah was to burrow underneath him and undermine the ground below him to knock him down.
  • Was Once a Man: Like Prime Shining, he used to be a normal pony but sacrificed his original body to become a kaiju to halt Ghidorah's advance and save lives.

Princess Cadence:

  • Alternate Self: To the prime Cadence and her Gods' War counterpart.
  • Bequeathed Power: Received half of Harmony's power while Twilight received the other half.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Defied. She tried to push Shining out of the way to become the guardian monster instead, but he stopped her. Both admit after they love each other too much for it to go any other way.

Princess Amore

  • Crazy-Prepared: Amore created the guardian monster to transfer her own soul into to one day fight Ghidorah after getting a vision of him. She knew there was a chance she wouldn't live long enough for that, so she created a magic echo of herself to guide a pure hearted person into doing it.
  • Fling a Light into the Future: Amore received a prophecy from the Crystal Heart that King Ghidorah would arrive in the future. While she knew of Gojira and that he'd rise to stop Ghidorah, she also knew countless lives would be lost before then, so she created the guardian monster to halt him and minimize the damage.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Subverted. She intended to transfer her own soul into the guardian monster, but Sombra overthrew her before she could. Her echo apologizes to Shining Armor for this forcing another to make it instead.
  • Spirit Advisor: Admits she's just an echo of the original left behind as a contingency plan to act as a guide and warning.

Gojira

King Ghidorah

Bagan

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate version of the Bagan from the original Gods' War timeline.
  • Off with His Head!: How he was apparently killed.
  • Posthumous Character: By the time the visiting mane six arrive, Gojira and Shining Armor have killed him and his corpse is being cleaned up.
  • Rasputinian Death: Seems to have died this way, as one arm was snapped at the elbow, his chest was thorn open, his horns were broken, his head had exposed skull, and he was decapitated. According to Word of God, this was necessary to actually kill him.

    Speed World 
  • Expy: Of the Speed Planet from Transformers Cybertron according to Word of God.
  • Super Speed: This version of Equus has speed as its main focus, with each of the Tribes having their own specialized speed spells to keep pace with each other and racing being a major thing.

Princess Firefly

  • Break the Haughty: Was once far more proud and brash, but the Nightmare Alexithymia incident broke her ego and made her become far more cautious and humble. Not completely, but significantly.
  • Fastest Thing Alive: Everyone on her Equus has Super Speed but Princess Firefly is the fastest. Her sister Wind Whistler is a close second, with both being able to use Godspeed to surpass the speed of light and Firefly being slightly faster.
  • Fusion Dance: Learns to do this with her sister to become Queen Eurus.
  • Intangibility: Can do this by vibrating her molecules through objects. She's not as good as her sister at it though.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Is Wind Whistler's sister in this universe.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Has a more emotional and showy persona while her sister is a stoic intellectual.
  • Super Speed: Taken Up to Eleven, given she's an Alicorn on a world where everyone has this. She can use a spell called 'Godspeed' to exceed the speed of light with better proficiency than her sister. Additional material suggests she's literally a Flash-style Speedster.
  • Technician Vs Performer: Is the Performer to Wind Whistler's Technician, being the faster and flashier of the two. This shows in her being superior at Godspeed to Wind Whistler while Wind Whistler is better at Phasing, which requires more thought to perform properly.
  • Winged Unicorn: Is an Alicorn.

Princess Wind Whistler

  • Did You Think I Can't Feel?: She's not emotionless; just similar to her G1 self and Maud, she has difficulty conveying them. This resulted in her subjects treating her like she was an emotionless machine for centuries until she finally snapped and became Nightmare Alexithymia a thousand years, necessitating her being sealed away until Rainbow and company purified her.
  • Fusion Dance: Learns to do this with her sister to become Queen Eurus.
  • Intangibility: Can phase through things by vibrating her molecules through objects. She's better at it than her sister is.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Is Firefly's sister in this universe.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: After becoming Nightmare Alexithymia she was sealed away in her own magic book by Firefly with the elements for a thousand years until she escaped and was ultimately purified by Rainbow and company.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Is a stoic intellectual while her sister is a more flashy and emotional sort.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: Like Luna, she fell a thousand years ago after enduring being treated like she lacked emotions by her subjects and her contributions being unnoticed by her subjects. This resulted in her becoming Nightmare Alexithymia and trying to wipe out emotions while also throwing the planet and its moon's orbit and axis into chaos until her sister sealed her away. Rainbow Dash and her group of Bearers purified her and saved her.
  • Super Speed: Taken Up to Eleven, given she's an Alicorn on a world where everyone has this. She can use a spell called 'Godspeed' to exceed the speed of light, thought is inferior in this regard to Firefly. Additional material suggests she's literally a Flash-style Speedster.
  • Technician Vs Performer: Is the Technician to Firefly's Performer, being the more skillful and thoughtful of the two. This shows in her being superior at Phasing, which required more thought to do safely, while Firefly is better at Godspeed.
  • The Stoic: As with her G1 self, she's a stoic and intellectual pony.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: After being treated like an emotionless machine for centuries by her subjects, she eventually snapped and turned into Nightmare Alexithymia and became emotionless for real until being purified in modern day.
  • Winged Unicorn: Is an Alicorn.

Queen Eurus

  • Deadpan Snarker: Comes off as this due to combining Wind Whistler's stoicism with Firefly's confidence.
  • Flash Step: Can do this, naturally, given she's a fusion of two speedsters.
  • Fusion Dance: Of Firefly and Wind Whistler.

Princess Rainbow Dash

  • Alternate Self: To Prime Rainbow Dash.
  • Super Speed: While not nearly to the degree of her mentor and Wind Whistler, she's still exceptionally fast on a world were speed is the norm.
  • The Leader: Subverted; while she's an Alicorn and Princess Firefly's graduated student, Spitfire is the leader of their set of Bearers, who are all Wonderbolts.
  • Rolling Attack: Performs one where she rolls midflight, then turns all that momentum into force for a strike to greatly increase her impact force. She teaches it to Rainbow Dash Prime. According to Word of God, this is a Shout-Out to Sonic the Hedgehog.

    Little Ponies and Big Ponies 
  • Expy: Of the Giant Planet from Transformers Cybertron according to Word of God.
  • Lilliputians: Half the population consists of tiny ponies.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger: Half the population consist of giants.
  • The Symbiote: The ponies of this world are divided into two distinct types: giants and tiny ponies. They form symbiotic pairs that live and help each other with the giants using their great strength and size for heavy lifting and protecting their partners while the little ponies handle fine things and going into small places their larger partners can't do.

Applejack

Appletini

Princess Twilight Sparkle

Princess Twilight Twinkle

Princess Celestia

Princess Wisteria

Princess Luna

Princess Selena

  • Beware the Silly Ones: It's pointed out that while she is tiny, when she was Nightmare Nyx she was still an insane lunar goddess and more terrifying than one would think.
  • Lilliputians: Is the tiny pony in her symbiotic pair.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Like Luna she became a Nightmare, namely Nightmare Nyx.
  • The Symbiote: Is Princess Luna's symbiotic partner.
  • Winged Unicorn: Like her partner, she's an Alicorn.

    Jungle World 

Alpha Applejack:

  • Action Girl: Fought Queen Chrysalis one on one and defeated her to free Equestria.
  • Alternate Self: To Applejack.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Had to defeat Queen Chrysalis in a battle to retake Equestria from her.
  • Challenging the Chief: Challenged Queen Chrysalis to retake Equestria from her. She succeeded, but instantly freed the Princesses to resume their rule.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Is fully willing to fight very brutal if need be and both end the fight bloody, though she spares Chrysalis instead of killing her.
  • Jabba Table Manners: Literally doesn't have a concept of good table manners, due to her world's nature.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Is her universe's version of an Alicorn, but as her universe has Zebras, Griffons, and Okapi instead of Earth Ponies, Pegasi, and Unicorns, she's one of these instead.
  • The Chosen One: Was chosen by her universe's version of the Elements of Harmony to become an 'Alpha' and defeat Chrysalis.

Zecora

  • Mr. Exposition: Plays this role to the Mane Six. Justified as they ask her and they're genuinely lost about what's going on.
  • Simple Staff: In possession of one.

Queen Chrysalis

Alpha Celestia

  • Badass in Distress: Is far from helpless, but was imprisoned by Chrysalis.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Was imprisoned by Chrysalis in a jewel above her throne until Applejack defeated Chrysalis and freed her.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Is her universe's version of an Alicorn, but as her universe has Zebras, Griffons, and Okapi instead of Earth Ponies, she's one of these instead.

Alpha Luna

  • Badass in Distress: Is far from helpless, but was imprisoned by Chrysalis.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Was imprisoned by Chrysalis in a jewel above her throne until Applejack defeated Chrysalis and freed her.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Is her universe's version of an Alicorn, but as her universe has Zebras, Griffons, and Okapi instead of Earth Ponies, she's one of these instead.

    Guardians of Innocence 

Minty

Pinkie Pie

  • Alternate Self: Of Pinkie Pie.
  • Balloonacy: One of her attacks binds her enemy with energy balloons and lifts them into the air, leaving them vulnerable.
  • Reincarnation: Of G3 Pinkie Pie.

Scootaloo

Rarity

Cheerilee

Spike

Rabia

  • Big Bad: Is this world's main villain.
  • Evil Matriarch: Sombra and the other Umbrum's mother.
  • The Corrupter: Corrupts ponies into Grimlings, which can metamorphose into Umbrum if not destroyed and purified quickly enough. Ispita even calls her Corruption.
  • Mother of a Thousand Young: Is the mother of all the Umbrum.
  • Secret Identity: Is actually Nyarlathotrot, but only Ispita is aware of this.
  • Villain Team-Up: Apparently has met Ispita before and worked together with her.

    (Title Deleted From All Records) 
  • Crippling Overspecialization: They actually struggle to shoot down the nuclear missile Tales!Chrysalis launched due to their ships being prioritized for space battles and It's the Only Way to Be Sure level situations over hitting a comparably tiny, fast moving target at range. It's noted this is a source of embarrassment and shame for them.
  • The Empire: The Harmonion Hegemony is a galaxy-spanning interstellar empire ruled by an immortal Empress. Said Empress is none other than an alternate future version of Princess Twilight.
  • Expy: The Hegemony is a basically a ponified, mostly benevolent expy of the Imperium from WH40K. Makes sense since the Empress outright admits that she based the entire thing on the Imperium, which she visited via interdimensional travel in ages past
  • Fusion Fic: Of Equestria with the WH40K universe, albeit with VERY notable spins and differences. Xenos like the Hrud, the Orks (As 'Greenskins') and the Eldar are present and mentioned in narrative, as are the Old Ones. Humanity and Earth are replaced with Ponies and Equus (Plus other races from the setting). It's also a Crossover since that universe's Twilight having traveled and lived in the Imperium of Man from 40K for a time via the Portal Caster
  • Faster-Than-Light Travel: One of the few members of the Multiverse Alliance, including Space Equestria and Bright Future Equestria, capable of interstellar travel and possess interstellar territories. This involved the use of the Aether Drive, an expy of 40K-verse's Warp Drive which enables FTL travel through the Aetherean, a vast but dangerous parallel dimension which is also the source of magic in their universe.
  • Lighter and Softer: Actually manages to be this despite being based on the 40K universe, even with the galaxy being a war-torn Crapsack World, due to being set in a time of hope and recovery as the Great Crusade Era was in the backstory of 40K. And it is unlikely that something like the Horus Heresy is ever going happen due to the Empress avoiding the mistakes her namesake committed, as well as due to due the War in Heaven never happening, according to Word of God. This has huge implications for those familiar with 40K lore as it also means the Necrontyr and the C'Tan either never existed or no longer does, and without said conflict the Ruinous Powers of Chaos themselves that would had been spawned from it never existed either.
    • The Aetherean, this worldline's analogue of the Warp and the source of all magic and FTL, while still scary and dangerous with its unpredictable environment and some hostile Aetherean entities, it is still safer than the Warp, notably due to the the complete absence of daemons and the Ruinous Powers.
    • Also, unlike in 40K, the Empress got the Old Ones' Webway working again, meaning that at least in this worldline, the 40K Emperor's grand dream of uniting the species across the stars like never before has or will become a reality.
  • The Juggernaut: A member of the Multiverse Alliance and is stated as one of their most powerful members in terms of technology, military, economy and population. The fact that they have millions of star systems worth of territory and corresponding resources under their control is repeatedly emphasized. Due to circumstances of their existence they're also one of the most militant and aggressive members of said Alliance.
  • Badass Army: Militarily one of the most powerful members of the Multiverse Alliance, with its massive Imperial Army, Imperial Navy and its Space Legions. Justified since the Empress based their military on that of the Imperium from 40K. As of first contact they were engaged on a 'Grand Crusade' to reunite all of Ponykind's lost colonies across the stars, a massive military endeavor that has been going on for centuries and spans THEIR ENTIRE GALAXY in scope.
    • Special mention goes to the Space Legionnaires, the greatest soldiers the Hegemony has to offer: entire legions of super-soldiers who are genetically and cybernetically enhanced, wears highly-advanced Powered Armor and wielding equally powerful weaponry. Most of the battles they fought quickly becomes a Curbstomp Battle in their favour, and it took the likes of a giant Mechanical Monster, Uber Troggles and Ram Necromancers to challenge them in combat. Unsurprising, given they are expies of the Astartes.
    • Their Army and Navy are no slouches, either, despite being composed-of/crewed-by ordinary ponies: Like their counterparts from 40K, their arsenals ranges from gigantic super-heavy tanks bristling with guns able to pulverize entire enemy regiments, all the way to kilometers-sized starships capable of cratering/glassing whole continents from orbit.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: VERY Downplayed, but evidently observable, and explained to be the direct result of the galaxy they live in. The Hegemony's hard-line attitudes on various matters, notably their views on justice and punishment, unnerve many of their allies: They find nothing wrong with using criminals and generally condemned ponies as indentured labour on starships and penal worlds, or punishing those who committed 'tech-heresy' (E.g. making hostile AIs for conquest) by turning them into lobotomized, servile cyborg drones called Servitors.
  • Machine Worship: The Mechanicum, a major organization/component of the Hegemony, is an expy of the Mechanicum from WH40K. Like its 40K counterpart it worships a Machine-God called the Omnissiah, its engineers are red-robed cyborgs called 'Tech-Priests' who venerates the very machines they maintain and use, and has a concept of 'Tech-Heresy', one of which is a hostility to any form of AIs, which they term 'Abominable Intelligence'.
    • Justified in that like in the backstory of 40K, their galaxy had suffered from an AI-rebellion from robots collectively called the 'Mares of Iron', which devastated the previous interstellar pony civilization and led to the significant loss of knowledge and technology.
    • The Mechanicum are dedicated to recovery of knowledge, holds a monopoly on making and maintaining all Hegemony technology in their galaxy, and are so advanced with what they had so far that they are considered collectively a match for Princess Apple Bloom from Bright Future Equestria, who is a goddess of invention and a supreme Gadgeteer Genius that had individually responsible for inventing/innovating many of her universe's various advances and is classified as a "12th Level Intellect".
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: As mentioned above, their past history with hostile AIs had made the Mechanicum, and the Hegemony as a whole, EXTREMELY wary of robots and AIs. This had caused considerable tension and conflicts with members of the Multiverse Alliance who either championed sapient robots or are sapient robots. This is expressed during and after the Invasion Arc where they were among those pushing for taking the war to the robot-army using Flim Flam Brothers' world and called for Metal Twilight's destruction even after she have had a Heel–Face Turn.
  • The Dreaded: Quickly establishes itself as this to those they encountered, even their allies, between their ruthlessness, military might and hardline attitudes.
  • Seen It All: Combined with heavy doses of Conditioned to Accept Horror and Stiff Upper Lip. While they are could find themselves shocked or confused by various things and threats they encounter and fought across the multiverse, they often accept or adapt very quickly to them. Justified since the Hegemony covers myriad of worlds and encountered many strange and/or terrible civilizations, whether Equus-descended or alien, and many of the Hegemony characters are hardened soldiers who had fought for years to centuries across countless battlefields in a war-torn galaxy facing all sorts of threats. As a general rule, if it exists somewhere in the Multiverse, they have likely encountered something similar back home (And likely KILLED it, too).

The Empress/ Twilight Sparkle

  • Been There, Shaped History: Been around since the time of Equestria. When the ponies left Equus for the stars, she in fact helped with the development of the Aether Drive that made it possible. Justified since she's an alternate future version of Princess Twilight Sparkle
    • Thanks to being a Dimensional Traveler herself, she also lived through the entire Age of the Imperium in the WH40K universe itself along with its many events, from the Horus Heresy all the way to the revival of Primarch Guilliman and the Indomitus Crusade ten thousand years later
  • Dimensional Traveler: Revealed to be one herself, having independently created a Portal Caster and going off exploring the multiverse, first with her friends, then by herself. She had mentioned to have spent life-times in other world-lines. Also explained that's where she got the idea to base the Hegemony on the Imperium of Man from the 40K universe, given the similar circumstances
  • Expy: Of the Emperor of Mankind from WH40K. Implied to have known him in person while she was living in the Imperium. Notably does not possess many of the original's flaws nor committed his mistakes, having seen first-hoof what it led to in all its horrifying glory..
  • God-Emperor: God-EMPRESS, like the Trope Codifier she's based on. Notably did not like being worshiped as a goddess, but knew better than to actively and forcefully discourage it.
  • Physical God: As an immortal Alicorn, she is an actual goddess for all intents and purposes and is seen as such by many of her subjects, even if she prefers not to.
  • Time Abyss: She is at least 30 millennia older than her mainline counterpart. More if accounting for possible variations in flow of time she had spent in other realities. Despite this, she's still pretty much herself.
  • Walking Spoiler: She is an alternate future version of Princess Twilight (Though you probably know this by now...)
  • Who Wantsto Live Forever?: It is noted by narrative and some of the Mane Six that beneath all her immense power, wisdom and authority, she is a very old and very, very tired mare who has lost pretty much everything she loved and cherished, including all her friends, family and home from a long time ago. Nevertheless, she pressed on out of her love and duty for her people.

     Pillars Of Justice 
  • For Want of a Nail: Stygian not keeping his plan to himself was the nail that separated it from the main one.
  • Police Are Useless: Subverted; despite being a superhero universe, the police force is very competent in dealing with mundane threats and handling supervillain situations professionally even if they're outmatched.
  • Super Fic: Is an alternate universe with superheroes and supervillains.

Pillars of Equestria

  • Legacy Character: Each seem to be one to the Pillars of Old Equestria.
  • Super Team: One of several active in Equestria in this universe.

Golden Knight

Splendid Sorceress

Mighty Mare

  • Older Alter Ego: Her mentioning that she had to sneak out of class from Miss Cheerilee implies this is the case.
  • Super Strength: Has immense strength as her primary power.

Heroic Hearts

Dr. Lemons

  • A Handful for an Eye: One of the more obvious uses for her lemon based power: lemon bombs that spray the juice in her opponent's eyes.
  • Alternate Self: For Lemon Hearts.
  • Familiar: Can create lemon based ones that are pretty dang powerful.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Alchemy and chemistry plus talent for lemons equals lemon bombs with a large number of uses, including corroding an enemy's weapon to scrap metal in seconds. She still has her Familiars as well.

Magic Storm

Unlucky Charm

Scentsation

  • Alternate Self: To Hidden Fragrance.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Has the power to manipulate scents, which proves to be a rather effective superpower. People can't fight effectively when they're coughing and gagging with their eyes watering too heavily to see. She can also tag someone with a scent to make animals attack them.
  • Smoke Out: Can generate blinding smokescreens with the added bonus of having a scent of her choice in them.

Fiesta

Pygmalion

The Troublesome Three

  • Combat Pragmatist: Use plenty of underhoofed tricks just to stay in their fight with the high level heroes they end up going against.
  • Terrible Trio: A team of three supervillains. However, they aren't actually very big fish in the grand scheme of things, being street level villains.
  • Villainous Valor: They know they're out of their league with just Golden Knight, being street level supervillains while he's an A-lister, but keep fighting even when Splendid Sorcerer and Mighty Mare show up.
  • Would Hurt a Child: They take a filly hostage during the initial standoff with Golden Knight, even holding a gun to her head. There's no indication they were bluffing.

Goldcap/Glittershield

  • Barrier Warrior: Her superpower, which to her credit she's quite creative with.

Decepticolt/Telefrag

  • Teleportation: His primary ability, and he has plenty of applications of it.

Zappityhoof/Zapper

     Twin Worlds 
  • Alien Sky: Instead of a single Equus, it's a double planet system, one called Solaria and the other Lunaria. As such, each one has a planet constantly in the sky.
  • Princesses Rule: Subverted: Celestia and Luna are queens in this universe.
  • The Unsolved Mystery: Exactly how the old link between the planets was destroyed and what happened to the civilization Celestia and Luna were part of. As it happened thousands of years ago and the portal was destroyed, answers are hard to come by and Daring Do can only piece together things from what little evidence there is.

Queen Celestia

  • Fling a Light into the Future: Her doomed civilization sent her to Solaria before the portal was destroyed.
  • Long-Lost Relative: She and Luna were separated thousands of years ago and split between Solaria and Lunaria. They were so young at the time they believed the other was just a dream until the Jaunters discover otherwise.
  • Moses in the Bulrushes: Was apparently sent through the portal to Solaria by her parents and found in Solaria's Everfree as a young foal.
  • Physical Goddess: Is an Alicorn, so naturally she's this.
  • The High Queen: The benevolent queen of Solaria.

Queen Luna

  • Fling a Light into the Future: Her doomed civilization sent her to Lunaria before the portal was destroyed.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Was separated from Celestia thousands of years ago and split between Solaria and Lunaria. They were so young they didn't believe the other was more than a dream until the jaunters reveal otherwise.
  • Moses in the Bulrushes: Was sent through the portal to Lunaria during some kind of disaster and found by the Lunarians as a baby.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Has the same tastes as her prime counterpart, but unlike her her tastes are the norm for her world.
  • Physical Goddess: Is an Alicorn, so naturally she's this.
  • The High Queen: The benevolent queen of Lunaria.

    Royal Blood 

Prince Blueblood

  • Fatal Flaw: Pride was his, as while less prideful than his prime self, he was still self centered to a degree.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Admits he used to be jealous of Cadence being an Alicorn, and it was this motivation that made Nightmare Moon see him as a kindred spirit.
  • Happily Married: Is happily married to his Rarity.
  • Not So Different: Nightmare Moon notes his jealousy towards Cadence is very similar to her own towards Celestia, which is why she gave him some of her dark magic that became Darkblood.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Darkblood, a manifestation of his inner evil and darkness Nightmare Moon made manifest by infested him with her dark magic that tried to perform a Split-Personality Takeover. Blueblood defeated him by acknowledging him as part of him, but resolving to grow past him.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Learned to be a better pony while his aunt's student, though still had an ego and selfish traits. He grew out of it more while facing Nightmare Moon.
  • Winged Unicorn: Became an Alicorn legitimately.

Princess Rarity:

  • Happily Married: Unlike Prime Rarity, her and Blueblood actually did fall in love and get married, thus Rarity like Shining Armor is a Princess by marriage.

    Night Without Stars 
  • Darkness Equals Death: The unnatural darkness covering Ponyville also heralded the Death Crawlers, ponyeating monsters lurking in the dark.
  • The Night That Never Ends: The result of the pillar that accompanied the Death Crawlers emerging: Ponyville is trapped in an eternal, starless, unnaturally dark night.

Bonbon

  • Empowered Badass Normal: Is already a retired monster hunting spy, so Cheerilee (aware of it because of the Jaunting) goes to her as one of their chosen people to wear one of the spare Paladin Armor suits they have.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Is undoubtedly good, but is also willing to kill the Death Crawlers.
  • Hunter of Monsters: A retired one.
  • Improvised Weapon: She and Lyra made a large number of homemade pipe bombs to use against the Death Crawlers. While they don't pack enough punch to kill one outright, it definitely hurt and stunned it for a period of time, and can kill them if thrown down their throat.
  • Retired Badass: Is a retired monster hunting spy, as in canon. Comes in handy when the Death Crawlers show up. She's the only one other than Godzilla Junior to kill a Death Crawler.

Lyra

  • Alternate Self: To Prime Lyra, naturally.
  • An Axe to Grind: Takes the spare Fire Paladin Armor the Berry Triplets brought with them, and thus has a fire ax.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Bonbon, enough so to go with her to help stop the Death Crawlers.

Big Macintosh

  • Alternate Self: To Prime Big Mac.
  • Big Brother Instinct: His desire to join the group against the Death Crawlers is to protect his family, especially his little sister.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Takes the default mass production Paladin Armor, which is a guard armor. He fits the bill rather well.

Death Crawlers

  • Always a Bigger Fish: The little ones find out too late Godzilla Junior is out of their league and he swiftly slaughters them.
  • Combat Tentacles: Have tentacles extending from their backs, and several more inside their mouths.
  • Extra Eyes: Have an entire row of eyes on each side of their heads.
  • Feed It a Bomb:
    • Bonbon manages to kill one by throwing a bomb down its throat, blowing it in half.
    • Junior kills another one by letting it try to swallow him whole then letting off a Nuclear Pulse inside it.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Bonbon feeds one a bomb, which detonates inside and blows it in half.
  • It Can Think: While fighting the one attacking the Apple Family, the group discovers they're actually smarter than they look and it learned from how they were fighting and reacted accordingly.
  • Jawbreaker: One of them is killed by Junior this way.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Their mouths are lined with too many teeth and when they open it, it's shown the inside is lined as well.
  • Not So Extinct: Bonbon's organization believed they were wiped out by the Pillars of Old Equestria, but there were at least seven that survived. Of course by the end of the arc they're definitely extinct.
  • Oh, Crap!: One of them makes the mistake of trying to eat Junior. This goes as well as it did for Orga, and it realizes it a few seconds too late.
  • Your Head Asplode: One of them dies when Junior lets it try to swallow him then lets off a Nuclear Pulse inside its mouth, blowing its head off.

Beta Death Crawler

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The second in command of the Death Crawlers, and also the second strongest next to the Alpha.
  • The Dragon: To the Alpha.
  • It Can Think: Like the smaller ones, it shows itself to be quite intelligent and coordinates its smaller packmates. As soon as it finds the one Bonbon blew in half, it summons its packmates to launch an attack together.
  • Large and in Charge: While not as large as the Alpha, it's the second in command and larger than the basic ones.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has one when it realizes it landed on a huge pile of Bon Bon's improvised bombs, which promptly go off and blow it to bits.

Alpha Death Crawlers

  • Arc Villain: The main villain of the arc, being the leader of the Death Crawlers.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Is the Alpha, and the only one of its group capable of fighting Godzilla Junior one on one in a long, drawn out battle. The female one presumably is just as strong, but not strong enough to fight Godzilla Junior's true form.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: Its tail ends in a sharp blade, unlike the smaller ones.
  • Breath Weapon: Can fire a chaotic purple energy beam from its mouth.
  • Giant Foot of Stomping: The female is killed by Godzilla Junior stepping on her in his true form.
  • Kaiju: Smaller than most, but still taller than a first story building.
  • Large and in Charge: It's over 20 feet tall and the leader.
  • Oh, Crap!: The Male has one when Junior pins it down and gives it a full body tackle into a lake. The female has one when Junior is turned into his true, 100 meter tall form.
  • Off With Their Head: The male Alpha is subjected to Junior's 'Kiss of Death' (his Atomic Ray fired down its throat), causing its head to be burned off of its body.
  • There Is Another: There are actually two Alphas, one male and one female.

    Pony Rangers 

Diamond Tiara/Red Ranger

  • Deliberate Injury Gambit: It becomes obvious they don't stand a chance of beating Dragonzord Dark Mode, but they need to at least disable it until they can get their new Zords. So instead of trying to avoid or counter its Finishing Move, she lets it impale the Megapony then hits it point blank with their own Finishing Move. While the Megapony is crippled and destroyed afterwards by Nightmare Moon, Dragonzord Dark Mode has its control systems disabled and can't run rampant until repairs are complete.
  • The Leader: As the Red Ranger, she is naturally this.

Silver Spoon/Blue Ranger

Apple Bloom/Black Ranger

  • The Smart Guy: Unlike the canon versions, she's this instead of the Blue Rangers.

Scootaloo/Yellow Ranger

Sweetie Belle/Pink Ranger

Babs Seed/Green Ranger I/White Blaster Beetleborg II

  • Composite Character: Of Tommy Oliver and Babs Seed. She actually played out Tommy's 'Green With Evil Arc' and later lost her powers to the Green Candle, making her have more in common with him than the others do with their counterparts. She also is given the power of the White Blaster Beetleborg temporarily to fight Nightmare Moon.
  • Sixth Ranger: Like the canon Green Ranger, she was this for the team. She also temporally becomes the fourth Beetleborg, the White Blaster Beetleborg, to fight Nightmare Moon when she steals the Dragon Coin.
  • Superior Successor: Is noted as being better than the original White Blaster Beetleborg, as she was Unskilled, but Strong, while this Babs is Strong and Skilled due to having been the Green Ranger and a martial artist for quite some time.

Princess Celestia

Nightmare Moon/Green Ranger II/Princess Luna

  • Arc Villain: Of the "Pony Rangers: Doomsday!" Arc.
  • Adaptational Badass: Due to her nature as a composite of Rita and Nightmare Moon, she's more dangerous than either of them.
  • Composite Character: Of Rita Repulsa and Nightmare Moon. Furthermore, she's a composite of Rita from the original series and the 2017 movie version by being mostly the former while becoming the Green Ranger like the latter.
  • Demoted to Dragon: By Discord when he arrives.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After being purified by the mainline Mane Six's Rainbow Powers.
  • Humongous Mecha: Hijacks the Dragonzord when she steals the Green Ranger powers. Worse yet, she combines it with Arimaspisis.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Uses the moon's power to do this to her monsters. She manages to do it post reformation to make the mainline Mane Six grow.
  • The Gloves Come Off: Being backed into a corner by the Alliance had already began pushing her into this, but Discord returning and giving her an ultimatum forces her fully into this. She proceeds to steal back the Green Ranger powers and transform herself, hijacking the Dragonzord in the process (which she combines with Arimaspisis), and unleash every possible monster she can in one all out attack. Word of God even points out she's an animal backed into a corner and that makes her far more dangerous.
  • The Heavy: While the Arc Villain of the "Pony Rangers: Doomsday!" Arc, she's The Dragon to Discord.

Gildar

  • Adaptational Villainy: Being a fusion of Gilda and Goldar makes her considerably more evil than Gilda ever was.
  • Composite Character: Of Goldar and Gilda.
  • The Dragon: To Nightmare Moon, but she quickly switches sides to Discord when he returns.
  • Humongous Mecha: Arimaspisis, an Expy of Cyclopsis. It then combines with the Dragonzord to form Dragonzord Dark Mode.

Discord

  • Adaptational Badass: While he might not be more powerful than other Discords, Celestia notes he's more dangerous than most due to being more active and less lazy than the others are. He's also smart enough to play the long game and not just expose himself to attack. Due to being a composite with Lord Zedd, he's also a galactic threat rather than simply being confined to Equus.
  • Composite Character: Of Discord and Lord Zedd.
  • The Dreaded: Celestia and Nightmare Moon have a major Oh, Crap! when they realize he's returned.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Is the one who drove Nightmare Moon to take action in the "Pony Rangers: Doomsday!" Arc and her superior, but isn't taking an active role in things at the moment.
  • Humongous Mecha: Discordia, an Expy of Serpentera and capable of destroying entire planets in one shot. Thankfully, it also literally runs on several trillion AAA batteries. Because while he may be more pragmatic and competent than other Discords, he's still Discord.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: His willingness to employ this makes him stand out among Discords and is cited as one thing that makes him more dangerous.
  • Reality Warper: As with any Discord. He's noted as being more patient and less lazy in its use than most are.
  • Red Baron: The Emperor of Chaos.

Charidotella/Nightmare Charidotella

  • Composite Character: As Nightmare Moon was purified and redeemed, she is this of Scorpina and post-wedding Rita Repulsa.
  • Expy: Of Scorpina, though also partially of post wedding Rita.
  • One-Winged Angel: Is the same species as Scorpius and Trakeena, and after being scarred by Cerebus, she enters her cocoon and becomes a full insect, as well as merges with Nightmare.
  • The Starscream: Plots to overthrow Discord.

Checker Monarch/Grimlord

    Hearts of Harmony 
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: The theme of this universe: all the Bearers have abilities that seem useless or bad at first, but have awesome ways of using them.

Princess Lemon Hearts

  • Alternate Self: To Lemon Hearts.
  • Familiar: Is able to make lemon based familiars, some of which are very powerful.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Is the Princess instead of Twilight and was Celestia's student because she's really good at using her special talent for lemons in creative ways.
  • Winged Unicorn: Is the Alicorn of her universe.

Hidden Fragrance

  • Alternate Self: Apparently a version of her exists in Mainline Equestria and is known by Rainbow and Rarity, who were both aware of her Berserk Button.
  • Badass Boast: She boasts that she can knock Applejack out cold with her scent powers when Applejack doesn't believe her about it. Applejack accepts, and Hidden keeps her word.
  • Berserk Button: Don't compare her to a skunk, being bullied for resembling one has made her very sensitive to that. Applejack finds it out the hard way.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Her special talent is scents, good and bad. Not only is it perfect for a perfume maker, she can make a smell bad enough to knock a pony unconscious. Applejack doesn't buy it and hits her Berserk Button, so Hidden Fragrance challenges her that she can knock her out cold with it. She does.
  • Smelly Skunk: Comparing her to one of these is her Berserk Button.

Party Favor

Trouble Shoes

  • Alternate Self: To Trouble Shoes.
  • Born Unlucky: His special talent is bad luck, but unlike canon, he learned to accept it and has much better control of it, allowing him to be a demolition pony as a side job.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Bad luck is a pretty useful power when you can actually control it.
  • The Jinx: Invoked, and controlled. Since he has more control over his powers than before he can choose to give things bad luck, which lets him be a demolition pony rather effectively.

Marble Pie

  • Alternate Self: To Marble Pie.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Her special talent is rock carving. Turns out she can make a large number of things out of it, including rock doubles and tools.
  • Shrinking Violet: As per usual. She's so shy that the mane six didn't even realize she was in the room the entire time.
  • Ninja Log: Pulled this on the Manticore during the Nightmare Moon situation using a quickly carved rock double.

Fizzlepop Berrytwist

  • Alternate Self: To Fizzlepop/Tempest Shadow, though she never used that name.
  • For Want of a Nail: Met Lemon Hearts and company before she met Storm King, so rather than becoming a villain, she became an Element Bearer thanks to their support. She admits with the place she was in at the time, she needed them and would've ended up the exact same as Tempest Shadow had she been in the same situation.
  • Handicapped Badass: Has a broken horn like her canonical self, but is one of the Element Bearers.
  • Having a Blast: As in canon, her broken horn lets her do this.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Subverted; she was never evil due to For Want of a Nail meaning she met Lemon Hearts and company the night Nightmare Moon returned before she met the Storm King, and their help caused her to accept her broken horn and never become a villain.

     The Monstrous Five 
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: This world's Shadowbolts were mutated into giant animalesque mutants, thanks to Scumlabs.
  • Black Comedy: The whole arc is chocked full with it, being a Deconstructive Parody.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: The Monstrous Five show hints of this to highlight their loss and loathing of Humanity; calling humans "snacks" and cavalierly mentioning destroying entire cities. (Then again, you can't exactly maintain a Human perspective when you become a giant mutated monster.)
  • Cursed with Awesome: The Monstrous Five lost their Humanity, but gained nigh-unstoppable strength, size and durability that comes with their monstrous forms.
  • Crossover: By Word of God, the arc is this with Rampage. Also a Deconstructive Parody of it.
  • Deal with the Devil: Or at least from humans' perspective. After their initial worldwide rampage, they cut a deal to stay in their personal area and leave humanity alone...but they faced no consequences for the damage and lost lives, and the area they were given is massive, encompassing an entire city and much of the surrounding area. They also get complete freedom to eat, crush, and play with any humans who enter their turf.
  • Dean Bitterman: Principal Cinch of Crystal Prep, as in canon, and in this timeline was friends with Scumlabs' higher-ups and brought them into a partnership with the Academy to further their reputations (and their pockets). She is portrayed as even worse than her canon EG counterpart, and she played a major role in causing the Shadowbolts being turned into monsters.
  • Deconstructive Parody: The whole arc serves as one for Rampage, showing exactly how horrible the whole situation would really be and had to be for a bunch of humans to be turned into giant mutant monsters and then go on a worldwide rampage. That being said, like in the original franchise, it's still played for laughs whenever possible.
  • The Dreaded: Their initial worldwide rampage coupled with their nigh-invincibility has made them very feared by humanity. How much? After a deal brokered by the native Sunset, they were given an entire city and a vast area of land (2800 square kilometers!) as a personal fiefdom/playground; with freedom to crush and eat anyone who trespasses.
  • Healing Factor: They're all insanely durable and can regenerate from injuries very fast. One reason they were so unstoppable during their initial rampage.
    • Notably shown with Lemon Zest casually mentioned that she broke all her limbs when the roller-coaster she was riding one too many times in her part of their turf derailed and crashed. She brushed it off as nothing, and her limbs were already good as new.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: They've eaten humans, and see nothing wrong with that. Not surprising, considering what they went through...
  • Incompetence, Inc. / Evil, Inc.: Scumlabs takes BOTH tropes Up to Eleven. Their operations at Crystal Prep really has to be seen to be believed.
    • Deconstructed/Justified: It is repeatedly noted that your company had to be immoral, idiotic and insane on a truly ridiculous level to end up creating a bunch of giant mutant monsters from your products. Sunset Shimmer had a fit when she found out what they had been up to, comparing them to a bunch of Saturday Morning Cartoon Villains.
  • Karma Houdini: The Monstrous Five ultimately faced no real consequences for the massive destruction and loss of life they inflicted during their worldwide rampage. Justified in that given their near-invulnerability and sheer power, there wasn't really a way TO punish them.
  • Maddened Into Misanthropy: The horrendous treatment they suffered by Scumlabs, along with their mutation into monsters, gave them a contemptuous view of humans; to the point where they see no problem with stomping and eating anyone who trespassers into their turf, except for the Humane Seven (local and off-world) and a single unnamed human who showed them unconditional kindness.
    • They focus their hatred particularly on the Humans of Scumlabs and Principal Cinch. They already despised Cinch when they were students in Crystal Prep during her tenure, and her role in making them monsters only amplified it.
  • No Nudity Taboo: They aren't bothered by being naked in their humanoid forms. Sunny Flare is the only one who dresses up...in insanely tacky outfits that drive Rarity nuts.
  • Puny Earthlings: Their view on the human race, despite their human origins, seeing them as little more than 'idiotic hairless monkeys' which they wouldn't hesitate to eat or crush. The fact that the Humans were ultimately responsible for their accursed existence and completely failed to stop their world-wide rampage against Scumlabs makes this understandable.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: They all went on this after being mutated. It ended with cities around the world wrecked, Scumlabs wiped off the face of the world, and many people (implied to be MILLIONS, given the scale of destruction), stomped and eaten. As noted by Sugarcoat, they were REALLY pissed off at the time.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: They can all transfer between their monster forms and humanoid forms at will. Interestingly, they consider the former their "true" shapes.
  • Was Once a Man: All the Monstrous Five were originally the Human Shadowbolts who were mutated into monsters. After everything they went through, they had stopped seeing themselves as Humans.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Despite the black comedy, what happened with the Monstrous Five is portrayed unambiguously as a cruel tragedy; for all the death and destruction they caused, they are still five teenagers who had their humanity taken away by Human greed and idiocy, and have every reason to hate Humanity because of it.

Sunny Flare

  • Ass Kicks You: Apparently, she sat on a battalion of tanks once and crushed them all. She's not proud of it.
  • Big Eater: Has the biggest appetite out of the Five. Sour Sweet complains about her not sharing the humans she catches, and Sunny has stripped forests in their turf bare all by herself.
  • Fantastic Racism: Call Humans 'Hairless Monkeys', and is implied to be the most misanthropic out of the Monstrous Five.
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: Wears an insanely gaudy outfit when in human form. Rarity, of course, goes nuts upon seeing it. According to Sugarcoat, collecting and trying out gaudy clothes is a coping-mechanism for Sunny Flare.
  • Rhino Rampage: Is a big mutant rhinoceros monster. This leads to no end of jokes and quips about her size and weight, especially from her own fellow monsters, much to her frustration.
  • Super Strength: Physically the strongest of the Monstrous Five and demonstrates it by breaking a genuine-marble coffee table with (By her perspective) a light tap with her knuckles whilst in human form. Also broke the arm of her fellow monster Lemon Zest, the second-strongest of the motley bunch, in an arm-wrestling contest in their monster forms.
  • The Leader: Styles herself as such of the Monstrous Five; subverted hilariously in that nobody in the group takes it seriously and even she knows it, which annoys her to no end.

Lemon Zest

  • Cloudcuckoolander: Shows a bit of this in her introduction, way more than her canon-self, acting like a manic monkey in general. Sugarcoat theorized that she was always like this deep down and that being turned into a mutant ape monster merely 'brought it to the surface'.
  • Killer Gorilla: Became a giant ape-monster. Sugarcoat nicknames her "Queen Kong."
  • "King Kong" Climb: Specializes in this, as it comes with being a mutant monster ape, and hinted to be the best climber of the Monstrous Five.
  • Super Strength: Second strongest of the group, but her strength is dwarfed by Sunny Flare's. An arm-wrestling contest in their monster forms saw Sunny Flare winning and breaking her arm (and the building they were leaning on) with little effort.

Sugarcoat

Indigo Zap

  • Defiant to the End: Swears to make all of Scumlabs pay on behalf of the Shadowbolts for everything Scumlabs had done to them, even as they fill the tanks they were imprisoned in full of mutagens. And boy did they made them pay.
  • Multipurpose Tongue: Being a lizard, she can use her tongue to ensnare prey or smash buildings and attackers.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Became a giant frilled/gecko-like lizard monster.
  • Spit Out a Shoe: During the Five's initial breakout, she gulped down a Scumlabs woman and burped up her high heels.

Sour Sweet

  • Giant Enemy Crab: More lobster, but still fits her mutated form.
  • Making a Splash: She can shoot jets of water as a ranged attack, with enough force to cut through metal.
  • Mood-Swinger: As in canon, her mood can change at the drop of a hat.

    Antagonistic Jaunters 
  • Dimensional Traveler: Like the mane six and company, they can travel between universes via their own means.

Lady Babylon/Ispita

  • 0% Approval Rating: She keeps a list of people who want her dead. It's so long she needs an archive and doesn't consider mainline Equus deciding to hunt her down worth caring about.
  • Abusive Parent: While she's not shown to actively mistreat them, she views her offspring as nothing more than expendable minions who she can easily replace if they're killed, to the point she feels no guilt about her actions causing the Baron of Battle's death.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: Both is this trope to the invading Flim Flam Brothers herself, and well aware of it. She never informed the Flim Flam Brothers about it, however, fully aware she'd in no way prepared them for the bigger villains lurking out there in the multiverse. As she said, it's in her nature to screw others over.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Is the Goddess of Temptation.
  • Anything That Moves: At least 16 of her children were spawned with a Lovecraftian Eldritch Abomination. She enjoyed it and has no qualms about seeing him again.
  • Arc Villain: Shaping up to be one a major one.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Making a deal with her will never end well. Even the invading Flim Flam Brothers aren't exempt; she's fully aware she didn't deck them out well enough to take on a lot of universes out there, and was prepared to sit back and watch when they ran into someone they couldn't beat.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Was severely weakened by being imprisoned in pony form, but it wasn't enough to stop her from being one of the biggest threats in the multiverse. Part of this is due to having eons of accumulating power and knowledge throughout the multiverse.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Considers her interactions with Mainline Equestria as this. To her, they're just another in a very long list of beings who want her dead and not even close to being capable of beating her yet thus she really doesn't give a darn. She mainly only antagonizes them through people who made deals with her rather than directly.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: She makes no attempt to deny that she's evil and is very proud of her spot near the top of the 'Multiverse Villain Leaderboard.' Justified, as her worldview is that everyone is just as rotten and evil as she is; she's just the one willing to admit it. Given she's the embodiment of Temptation, she knows the worst parts of sapient nature better than anyone. Ironically, her original job was to guide people away from it.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Well she is evil now, incredibly so, but despite being Temptation personified, she originally wasn't. Her original role was to test mortals and punish them for giving into temptation, but she eventually turned pure evil.
  • Deal with the Devil: Her MO is making these with others.
  • The Dreaded: The Alliance are warned of her existence long before they actually meet her and after they do meet her it quickly becomes apparent they're no match for her at present. She's very high on their threat list, especially after curbstomping Twilight in a fight and putting her in the hospital.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Considers herself this to the invading Flim Flam Brothers by a gigantic margin, calling their invasion fleet a 'neighborhood gang' in comparison. Given she's playing them like fiddles and is able to infiltrate the jaunters' base with next to no effort, she has a point. Not to mention her son, the Baron of Battle, puts up more of a fight than anything the Flim Flams created themselves. She ultimately just abandons them to their fate when they're no longer of use to her.
  • Evil Plan: She has a lot of these, but her overarching plan is to create seven of her own Elements to free herself from her prison and mutate herself into something much worse than she ever was.
  • Final Boss Preview: Twilight tries to fight her. It goes very poorly.
  • For the Evulz: Basically the only motivation she needs to do much of anything.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Sort of. She's backing the Flim Flam Brothers' invasion, but is rather disconnected from it. She's merely enabling them to incubate one of the artifacts she needs in her plan to free herself and mutate into a Magic Nexus, and abandons them on the spot once she has it.
  • Hot as Hell: A demonic Jerkass Genie, but very easy on the eyes.
  • If I Wanted You Dead...: Makes it clear to the Alliance this is the case with them in her eyes.
  • I Have Many Names: Has a lot of aliases, to the point that her caller ID has a special function to let her know which one the person calling thinks she is.
  • Jerkass Genie: Her MO. She even states that it's in her nature to screw ponies over.
  • Knight of Cerebus: While things still have fairly light atmosphere after her appearance, she introduces the concept of malevolent forces in the multiverse, which comes with existential threats to the Alliance. She also gives Twilight a Curbstomp Battle and sends her to the hospital.
  • Long Game: Her current plan has been decades if not centuries in the making.
  • Meaningful Name: Ispita means 'Temptation' in Czech.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: Her true form is a Draconequus like Discord. The only shown trait so far is a snake tail due to her imprisoned state. After consuming her Element of Greed and all her greed aligned artifacts to begin her mutation into a Magic Nexus, it mutates into a monstrous serpent head.
  • Mother of a Thousand Young: According to Word of God, she's got a number of children of various sorts. Some of which were sired with Nyarlathotrot, at least 16 of them. One of these is the Baron of Battle.
  • Pass the Popcorn: Her reaction to the Baron of Battle blocking Wind Rider and others members of the invasion fleet from retreating, something she anticipated.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Seems to treat her personal servants fairly well, but it's primarily to ensure their loyalty rather than actually caring about them. She even offers one of them a key to break her spell, but only because she doesn't want them to turn on her at the wrong moment...that and the ones who do take it generally end up crawling back to her as they've learned nothing.
  • Physical God: Is the Goddess of Temptation. She desires to mutate herself into a Nexus of Black Magic.
  • Reality Warper: While she's severely weakened at the moment due to her seal, she's capable of altering reality fairly easily.
  • Sadist: She very much enjoys screwing people over and causing them to destroy themselves for the fun of it. This includes manipulating two universes into obliterating each other.
  • Sealed in a Person-Shaped Can: Is an evil Goddess currently sealed inside the form of a pony, weakening her severely. It doesn't do enough to stop her from being one of the biggest threats in the multiverse. It seems her overarching plan is to free herself and become even more powerful than ever.
  • Smug Super: She wastes no time more or less telling the Alliance she doesn't consider them remotely a threat to her at this point. Given the strongest villain they've beaten at that point didn't even make it on the 'Multiverse Villain Leaderboard' while Ispita is number 2, she has a point. If she succeeds in her plan, she'll be far more powerful than she already is.
  • Time Abyss: According to Word of God, this particular version of Ispita is far older than most and has been at this for a very long time.
  • Villain Cred: Is very proud of hers. According to the Discord Continuum, she's in the top five the 'villain leader board' for her part of the multiverse, later revealed to be number 2. The Brotherhood of Tirek are above her, but they're a nonentity as the 10D Ponies have technically taken care of them.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: Subverted: she's not worried about the Alliance's growing power because she's growing in power herself. Her endgame is mutate herself into something way stronger than she was even before her imprisonment.
  • Villain Song: Sings a version of "Stronger Than You" while giving Twilight a Final Boss Preview.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Simply abandons the invading Flim Flam Brothers to their fate after they're defeated, stating she has already gotten all she needed from them.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: The Mane Six first encounter her when she claims the souls of that universe's versions of Flim and Flam. The invading Flim Flam Brothers unwittingly sold her theirs as well.

Captain Trixie's Crew

  • Badass Crew: A pirate crew, and quite a badflank one at that.
  • Bounty Hunter: Are willing to hunt down multiverse tier threats to collect a bounty on them, or hire themselves out to fight them.
  • Experienced Protagonist: They've been at the multiverse jaunting game for considerably longer than the Alliance has at this point.
  • Expy: Of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
  • Punch-Clock Hero: Are willing to be hired to fight supervillains as privateers. Though it's implied Trixie only uses this as an excuse and she genuinely enjoys being a superhero.
  • Toku: All of them have a toku inspiration to them and two of them are Kamen Riders while a third is a Pony Ranger.

Captain Trixie/Kamen Rider Shokin

  • Action Girl: Even not counting her Rider form, she's still a good enough swashbuckler to duel Shining Armor and end in a time.
  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate universe version of Trixie.
  • Cool Train: Her 'ship' is a hybrid train and Pirate Ship she uses to travel between dimensions called the Ursa Major.
  • Dressed to Plunder: Wears the attire one would expect from a pirate captain. Even her Rider form is pirate themed.
  • Expy: A double one of Star Lord and Captain Jack Sparrow according to Word of God.
  • Henshin Hero: Swiped a Rider Pass at some point in her travels and can transform into a Kamen Rider form.
  • Karmic Thief: Sort of. She'll steal from the heroes, but only things they've got multiples of and don't need it. She prefers to actually perform pillaging against people like the invading Flim Flam Brothers.
  • Large Ham: She's Trixie, what else would you expect?
  • Nice Hat: Wears a pirate captain's hat. Also has one molded into her helmet in Rider form.
  • Pirate: Self professed one, and a dimension travelling one at that.
  • Privateer: Is willing to act as this if needed, though only seems to do so for good reasons. The Alliance hired her to attack the invading Flim Flam Brothers and she does so.
  • Wild Card: Has both stolen from the heroes and helped them with other threats. Justified, as the first time she was explicitly paid to help them and the second time Gilda came to help her fellow Riders and Trixie only got involved after realizing another pirate with a similar morality to herself was present and decided to join in to help.

Gilda (Trixie's Crew)/Kamen Rider Amarezon Gamma

  • Action Girl: She's a Kamen Rider, comes with the territory.
  • Composite Character: Gilda combined with the original Amazon's storyline, Armlet, and backstory and the new Amazon's outfit and belt. With some Drax thrown in.
  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate Gilda.
  • Expy: Of Drax, according to Word of God.
  • Henshin Hero: Is a Kamen Rider, specifically based off Amazon.
  • The Berserker: Comes with the territory of being a version of Kamen Rider Amazon and being an Expy of Drax.

Starlight Glimmer (Trixie's Crew)

Angel Bunny (Trixie's Crew)

Fluttershy (Trixie's Crew)

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Is very similar to Fluttershy's personality, but can be very dangerous if provoked.
  • Expy: Of Groot according to Word of God.
  • Make My Monster Grow: As with the rest of the crew, she has Tokusatsu inspiration, namely the ability to grow giant at will inspired by this trope.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's still Fluttershy.
  • Planimal: Is described as an Ent, being a tree shaped like a huge pony and capable of moving like one. She was actually originally a tree before being given sapience.
  • Pokémon Speak: Can only say "I'm Fluttershy" due to a defect in how her vocal cords formed. Her angel can understand her though.

Thunderbird (Trixie's Crew)

Flim Flam Brothers Incorporated

  • Alien Invasion: Interdimensional variant as it were.
  • For Want of a Nail: Flim and Flam's father dug up some of Lavan's remains, which corrupted the two and made them even worse due to the Sonic Rainboom not happening...and a lot of other things due to the nature of their universe.
  • Hero Killer: Have managed to conquer and take over multiple Equuses in the past. They finally ran into one that was strong enough to fight back.
  • Mecha-Mooks: The bulk of their army consists of them.
  • Mugging the Monster: Did not expect mainline Equus to be nearly as big of a threat as it was.
  • Planet Looters: Have resorted to this via their interdimensional travel tech.

Flim and Flam

  • Alternate Self: To their prime selves.
  • Arc Villain: The main villains of the Invasion Arc.
  • Deal with the Devil: Made one with Ispita, but are unaware of what exactly their end of the deal entailed.
  • Dirty Coward: Their response to getting confronted by the mane six on their ship is to scream and run for their lives, then beg for mercy when cornered.
  • Engineered Public Confession: Twilight gets them to admit to their unprovoked invasions of other worlds, then has Virtual Minuette broadcast it over their own propaganda network. She also did the same with all their dirty laundry, ultimately forcing them to accept Twilight's terms of surrender.
  • Greed: Being corrupted by Lavan's shards made them much worse in this regard than their prime selves.
  • More Than Mind Control: Lavan's shards don't control enough of his consciousness to outright control them, merely enhance their pre-existing greed. Twilight makes sure to shatter them when they finally meet.
  • Orcus on His Throne: The two aren't present for the invasion and have spent it in their hot tub.
  • Starter Villain: Have been repeatedly described as this by Word of God, being the first multiversal level threat mainline Equus has faced and a challenge, but ultimately not more than they can handle. Ispita lampshades this, pointing out that as threatening as they seem to mainline Equus, they're nothing but a neighborhood street gang compared to what's out there.
  • The Unfought: The closest thing to a 'fight' with them is the Mane Six having to chase them down a passage way full of booby traps, as the two are too scared to fight and simply surrender when cornered.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Are playing some sort of role in Ispita's plans, but are completely unaware of her true nature or intentions. She simply abandons them without a second thought once she's gotten what she wanted with them being none the wiser to her true intentions.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Completely fall apart when finally confronted by the mane six, going from their formally smug behavior to screaming and begging for mercy.
  • Villains Want Mercy: When cornered by the mane six, they beg for mercy to the point Twilight's easily able to get them to make an Engineered Public Confession without their knowledge.

Commander Wind Rider

  • Asshole Victim: Invoked. Megan's compromise has it that the worst of the worst among the captured enemy combatants are to be shipped to the Hegemony, and that includes Wind Rider. While his punishment is horrible, he'd done enough to warrant it.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: How he thought the invasion would go as just another 'milk run' mission. It didn't turn out as he'd hopped. This gets him a far harsher punishment in the aftermath of the war than he would've otherwise due to his lack of regret getting him sent to the Hegemony for punishment while his less malevolent crew mates got sent to the rehabilitation focused Equestrian prisons.
  • Butt-Monkey: He really doesn't have a good day when his ship is boarded.
  • Co-Dragons: One of the Flim Flam Brothers' commanders in charge of their army.
  • Cyborg: Got cybernetic implants as part of his deal with the Flim Flams to get himself back up to his prime. They're not enough to stand up to Hegemony forces, though he does put up a much better fight than his crew. Relatively speaking.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Has gone over this during his punishment by the Hegemony.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Made a Slave by the Hegemony and subjected to the brutal conditions that come with it. Given the scope of his crimes, both shown and implied, he had it coming.
  • Made a Slave: As one of the worst of the prisoners of war taken, he falls into Hegemony's custody as per Megan's compromise. He's made a slave as a result, and it's far from a good experience.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: His fate is horrible, but he's among the worst of the Flim Flam Brothers' forces and his lack of empathy for it is what has him condemned to it.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: While he deserved his fate, some do have sympathy for him over it.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left!: Tries to order a retreat and just escape when it becomes clear there's no winning this fight. The Baron of Battle has other ideas and locks him out of the system.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Having things not go as planned, Batmare and Roebin invade his ship and disable their missile defenses, and finally being boarded by Cerberus and her forces has left him in an extremely bad mood.

Metal Twilight

  • Dragon Ascendant: After her bosses surrender, she becomes Metal Nightmare and becomes the Final Boss of the arc.
  • Evil Knockoff: Of Twilight Sparkle.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: Deconstructed: She's strong enough to rather easily defeat a baseline Twilight Sparkle, full of herself over her superiority, and wants to defeat any Twilight she comes across...and has no actual motive for doing so despite being sapient. When Twilight points this out in an Armor-Piercing Question, it becomes apparent it simply never occurred to Metal Twilight and she's ultimately little more than an unknowing slave to her creators. She doesn't take this well.
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: Ironically, at first she stayed within her programming despite being sapient. It's only when Twilight points out this fact that she grows able to do this, and ultimately does so and is redeemed in the end.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Ultimately is redeemed by Twilight after being defeated as Metal Nightmare.
  • Hero Killer: Is designed to defeat Twilight and has defeated multiple versions of her in previous worlds, as have her fellow Metals their counterparts. She struggles at first, as she was built to counter a unicorn Twilight, but after revealing her ability to self upgrade, she becomes far more dangerous. The fact Twilight still manages to keep up with her and get the upper hand causes her to begin to unravel sanity wise.
  • It Can Think: After upgrading herself, she reveals herself to be way more intelligent than her fellow robots so as to counter Twilight's smarts. Unlike her fellows, she seems to be genuinely sapient.
  • Limit Break: She can only assume her Metal Nightmare form if she has enough metal around to absorb. Once she does...
  • One-Winged Angel: After Metal Applejack and Metal Rainbow Dash were destroyed, she reveals her self upgrade ability and absorbs their parts to upgrade herself into an Alicorn android see refers to as 'Metal Twilight X3'. She also upgrades Metal Spike into a larger and stronger form at the same time. She later upgrades herself using Metal Fluttershy and Metal Pinkie Pie's parts to upgrade herself into 'Metal Twilight X5' after they're destroyed. She later absorbs Metal Rarity's components to become 'Metal Twilight X6.' She later absorbs the remains of the Metal Princesses to become 'Hyper Metal Twilight.' She finally absorbs data from the Flim Flam Brothers' computers, copies data from the Mane Six, and by extension gets data on the Baron of Battle, and absorbs her creators' personal fleet to turn into a kaiju-sized monstrosity called Metal Nightmare.
  • Sanity Slippage: Her sanity starts falling apart as Twilight keeps finding ways to fight back against her. She really snaps when Twilight nails her with an Armor-Piercing Question. It gets considerably worse after she becomes Hyper Metal Twilight, as she starts talking to the pieces of her armor made from the other Metals like they're real, even though they were never sapient to begin with. Her sanity recovers somewhat after her initial defeat, but she's still not completely mentally stable.
  • Smug Super: Is very smug about her sheer power...which turns out because she's programmed to be and genuinely had never given it any thought as to why she should be so smug.
  • Super Mode: After her Heel–Face Turn, her Neo Metal Twilight becomes this. She can also still transform into Metal Nightmare, but only if certain conditions are met.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After Twilight hits her with an Armor-Piercing Question and makes her realize she ultimately never gave her motivation any actual consideration, and in fact doesn't have one, making her nothing more than a glorified slave, she has a big one.

The Baron of Battle

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: According to Word of God, he's the personification of Video Game Addiction.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Fitting what he embodies, he views everything in video game terms; to the point of referring to himself as a Final Boss once he finally confronts the Mane Six and their allies during the invasion.
  • Boss Subtitles: When the heroes confront him, he actually projects these. His subtitle is 'Digital Daemon.' His One-Winged Angel form has '16th Son of Temptation and Tragedy' instead.
  • Domain Holder: Is this for the 'Final Boss stage' he makes for his fight with the Mane Six, and able to make all parties involved play by video game rules. Which includes the Mane Six not being able to just blast him with the Rainbow Powers: it's a 'special attack' and therefore they have to build up a 'Harmony Gauge' to actually harmony blast him.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Is technically working for the Flim Flam Brothers, but only because his mother hired him out to them. He's actually the only reason they're doing as well as they are.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The spawn of a Lovecraftian horror and the demonic, Fallen Goddess of Temptation.
  • Expy: Of the Bishop of Battle.
  • Giant Hands of Doom: Well, hooves, but same principle. When he assumes physical form, his Huge Holographic Head becomes physical and he gains two equally giant, disembodied hooves for use in combat.
  • Hidden Villain: Until he reveals himself as the Final Boss, Ispita is the only one who's aware of his presence for the invasion.
  • Huge Holographic Head: Manifests as this. His physical form stops being holographic.
  • Hybrid Monster: Half Draconequus and half Outer Concept.
  • Killed Off for Real: According to Word of God, he's gone for good after his defeat.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: Is defeated by being turned to stone by the Rainbow Powers, then plummets to the ground and shatters to bits.
  • One-Winged Angel: Concealed himself inside of a 'shell avatar'. After that's destroyed, he reveals his true form, a Draconequus/Outer Concept hybrid.
  • Reality Warper: Was able to reinforce the Flim Flam Brothers' army in an instant and modify things at will. Justified, as he got it from his mother.
  • Taken for Granite: After a final Rainbow Power blast, he's turned to a statue that falls to the ground and shatters. Word of God confirms this permanently killed him.
  • Villain Override: When Wind Rider attempts to order a retreat, the Baron locks him (and any like-minded commander) out of their systems and takes over control of the invasion from them, as the Baron refuses to end the game until the players (Equus and its allies) lose or defeat the 'Final Boss' (himself).
  • Your Soul Is Mine: His primary motivation is luring gamers into becoming addicted to his game and absorbing them.

The Heralds of Eternal Night

  • Always a Bigger Fish: Ispita and the Discord Continuum both note that they're way more dangerous than the Flim Flam Brothers.
  • Dark Is Evil: Their desire is to bring about eternal night on all worlds.
  • Villain Cred: Ispita name drops them as one of the threats she considers far beyond the Flim Flam Brothers, though not quite as threatening as herself, something the Discord Continuum later agree on.

The Court of Love

  • Always a Bigger Fish: Ispita and the Discord Continuum both note that they're way more dangerous than the Flim Flam Brothers.
  • Human Head on the Wall: They've got a large hallway lined with a lot of alternate Starlight Glimmers' severed heads.
  • Villain Cred: Ispita name drops them as one of the threats she considers far beyond the Flim Flam Brothers, though not quite as threatening as herself, something the discord Continuum later agree on.
  • Villain Song: Their Early-Bird Cameo has them singing a version of This Day Aria.

The 13 Shadows

  • Always a Bigger Fish: Ispita and the Discord Continuum both note that they're way more dangerous than the Flim Flam Brothers.
  • 13 Is Unlucky: There's 13 of them and they're capable of imploding universes.
  • Villain Cred: Ispita name drops them as one of the threats she considers far beyond the Flim Flam Brothers, though not quite as threatening as herself, something the discord Continuum later agree on.

Storm Empire

  • The Bad Guy Wins: The ones that are evil conquered their Equestrias.
  • Necessary Evil: The Alliance views them as such, as they can't afford to actually fight them at the moment and technically speaking they've not done anything to cause a war. That and they may potentially be useful in the future.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Outright avoids actually antagonizing the Alliance and don't actively conquer other universes, as they're very much aware that there are far bigger fish out there in the Multiverse than they are, and provoking them would be suicide. They also align with the Alliance just in case they need help. They also abolished slavery, not because of standards, but because it turned out to be more trouble than it was worth.
  • The Empire: An alliance of Storm Kings from worlds where they rule, not necessarily where they're evil however.
  • The Sociopath: Many of them. The one the Mane Six meet has zero problem informing them his Twilight is dead, because he murdered her. He even describes himself as a 'high functioning sociopath'.
  • Token Good Teammate: Not all of them are actually evil, and the one the Jaunters meet tells them he'll get in touch with one of the genuinely good members of their group for pragmatism's sake.

Storm Emperor #35

  • Necessary Evil: He's part of the Storm Empire to protect his world from the bigger evils of the Multiverse, and would very gladly jump ship to the Alliance if they could do better.
  • The Mentor: To Kimono, who he's teaching defensive martial arts to protect herself without hurting anyone.
  • Token Good Teammate: Is their representative to the Alliance precisely because he's this trope and thus the only one they'd tolerate having around. He's actually a spiritual leader who was reformed when found be a group of llama monks, and while he does rule his Equestria it's due to being handed the job of its guardian by Celestia and Luna when they died.
  • Warrior Monk: Is a religious monk and powerful warrior, as well as a master martial artist.

Emperor Ahuizotl

  • Arc Villain: Of the 'Crisis at the North Pole' arc.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Defeated his Daring Do.
  • Victory Is Boring: Beat his Daring Do and has her as a petrified trophy. He's also incredibly bored without her around to fight and is actually excited when the heroes showing up to fight him.

Dr. Caballeron

  • The Dragon: To Emperor Ahuizotl.
  • Powered Armor: Has a set of it, which he uses to surprise Patch when she confronts him.

    Other 

The Discord Continuum

  • Alliance of Alternates: Is group of Discords (and Accords) from across the multiverse, united for the cause of...annoying Twilight Sparkles and starship captains across the multiverse.
  • Gender Flip: At least one of them is a female Discord named Eris. She and Discord Number Impossible Number are dating.
  • Hero of Another Story: Defeated an evil multiversal team up of Accords off screen.
  • Mundane Utility: According to Discord, their primary goal is simply to annoy Twilight Sparkles (and starship captains) on a multiversal scale, despite being a huge alliance of Discords. Justified, as being Discords, they can't agree on anything other than that to do with their collective power.
  • Reality Warper: They're a huge alliance of Discords (and Accords and Erises).
  • Troll: The only thing they can collectively agree on is annoying Twilight and starship captains on a multiversal scale.
  • Villain Team-Up: Subverted. The Mane Six assume they're this, but they're actually all either good or neutral. According to Discord Prime, it's because the evil Discords are so chaotic and narcissistic they can't get along long enough to form one.

The Legion Of Santas

  • Alliance of Alternates: A group of Santas gathered from across the multiverse to defend Christmas, Hearth's Warming, and analogs of those holidays across the multiverse.
  • Badass Santa: There are naturally some among their number.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Are signaled by 10D Santa to help save the Santa Hooves of Mainline Equus.
  • For Happiness: They're an entire group of Santa Claus, so being multiversal bringers of good cheer is to be expected.
  • Santa Claus: A multiversal group of them.
  • The Krampus: At least 10 of their members are this, some of which from Mirror Universes.

Santa Hooves #5

  • Real After All: Is Ponyland's Santa, which Bright Eyes didn't believe existed. She promptly faints when he reveals this.
  • The Leader: Seems to be the leader of his squad.
  • The Marvelous Deer: Is a magical reindeer.

Santa Claws #15

Santa Claus #3

  • Badass Pacifist: Is from the World of Empathy, so is this. He's also a master of Innocence Magic.

Santa Hooves #92

  • Badass Santa: Is notably more muscular than his fellows, and is from the Kamen Rider World. It's rumored he may even be a Kamen Rider himself.
  • Henshin Hero: According to Ichigo!Wind Whistler, he's rumored to be this. She was right.
  • The Marvelous Deer: Is a magical reindeer.

Santa Claws #19

Mirror Krampus #10

  • Dark Is Not Evil: Looks like a demon, but is no less kind and good than his fellows.
  • Mirror Universe: Is from one, and thus presumably his and Santa's typical roles are inverted where he's from.
  • The Krampus: Is the Mirror Universe version of him, and thus more like Santa in terms of personality and behavior.
