Mainline Equestria

    open/close all folders 

  • Dimensional Traveler: This Equus invented the portal casters for use in dimensional travelling.
  • For Want of a Nail: Them discovering reliable dimensional travel is where they split off from canon.
  • Powered Armor: They obtained it from the Paladin universe and use it to equip their people for their own protection. It comes in two varieties: the Advanced Model for those with some form of magical capability that can power it, and the Mass Production Model, which is for everypony's use and comes in a variety of versions and uses, but is much weaker.

The Mane Six

  • Action Girl: All of them can handle themselves in a fight, which is one of the reasons they're the ones doing the dimensional traveling.
  • Multiform Balance: After gaining their Paladin Armor, the Mane Six have this between their armored states and their Rainbow Powers, as they can't be used at the same time. The Rainbow Power forms are much stronger and can fly, but the Paladin Armor is more practical for normal situations that don't require that much sheer power.
  • Super Mode: Their Rainbow Power forms, as in canon.

    Twilight Sparkle 

  • Breath Weapon: When the group travels to Terra, she becomes a mutated Godzillasaur, and thus gains a mana infused version of Godzilla's atomic ray. During the battle with Metal Nightmare, she manages to stall herself inside the portal to Terra and assume a hybrid form like the ones that the kaiju do when they come to Equus for just long enough to damage Metal Nightmare and stun her long enough to be finished off.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Invented the Portal Caster alone with her EG self and Sunset Shimmer.
  • Interspecies Romance: Eventually chooses to progress and formally start her relationship with EG!Flash Sentry, a human. She makes it clear this trope is in effect by finally taking him to Equestria and showing him her true form, just to make sure he's okay with it. He is, and they start formally dating.
  • Magic Staff: Her Paladin Armor weapon is one of these.
  • Official Couple: Seeing interdimensional romances blossom eventually causes her to decide to restart and progress her relationship with EG Flash Sentry. She is now formally dating him.

    Rainbow Dash 

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Her Rainbow Factory self learned the hard way: don't make her mad.
  • Blade on a Stick: Her Paladin Armor weapon is a spear.
  • Breath Weapon: On Terra, she becomes a female Rodan, but instead of his heat beam, she can breath lightning.
  • Feed It with Fire: In her Terran kaiju form, she can absorb electricity to power up and recover.
  • Giant Flyer: On Terra, she becomes a female Rodan. Naturally also applies on any world where she's a giant. She uses Queen Novo's Pearl of Transformation to assume her Rodan form to help Rodan against the Storm King's mecha Zeus.
  • The Gloves Come Off: While fighting Factory!Rainbow, she uses only her base abilities and the fight is fairly even... until she finds out Factory Rainbow Dash tried to kill her Scootaloo. She promptly enters her Rainbow Power form and completely demolishes her.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Extremely fast and can hit hard. Her Rainbow Power form and Paladin Armor increases both of these.
  • Mama Bear: Towards Scootaloo, and also towards Factory!Scootaloo.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Took the roof off the Rainbow Factory by beating Factory Rainbow through it after realizing Factory Rainbow intended to kill the native Scootaloo.
  • Other Me Annoys Me:
    • Out of all the Mane Six, she's the one who seems to hate evil versions of herself the most, primarily due to being the Element of Loyalty and most of her alternates betraying people they love or hurting alternate versions of people she cares about. She beat Factory Rainbow so badly she put her in the hospital and dedicates herself to bringing down Friendship Express because of this.
    • Subverted with G3 Rainbow Dash, who while the two are vastly different, Rainbow recognizes they're the same in the ways that matter: they're both loyal friends.
  • Rolling Attack: Learns to do one from her Speed World self and makes good use of it afterwards.


  • Deflector Shields: Unlike the others, her Magic Surge in Paladin Armor isn't an attack, but projecting an incredibly powerful force field.
  • Giant Flyer: On Terra, she becomes a Mothra, and thus is a giant moth. Also applies on any world where she is a giant.
  • Healing Hands: Variant: she's capable of breaking the curse on the Forgotten Ones via her Element of Kindness.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Her Paladin Armor weapon is a butterfly shaped shield.
  • Mind Hive: It's eventually revealed that Flutterbat and Fluttercruel are independent souls sharing her body with her. Exactly how they were born isn't clear, but she treats them as her daughters.

    Pinkie Pie 

  • Ass Kicks You: Sat on and squished the native Chrysalis in a world where all ponies were giants.
  • Blob Monster: On Terra, she becomes what seemed to be a sweets based, more adorable version of Hedorah.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her Paladin Armor weapon is a ribbon that can be used like a whip.
  • Sticky Situation: Her Terran form is a Blob Monster made of a sweet, sticky substance. As such, enemy attacks can get stuck in her body and even Zetton had trouble freeing himself from it.
  • Toon Physics: She's Pinkie Pie, so naturally she has this.


  • Cuteness Proximity: Has this reaction to 'Mini' Yipper, a Diamond Dog pup from a world where equines are giants.
  • Gem Tissue: On Terra, she becomes what looks like a female Krystalak, complete with his crystal aspects.
  • Healing Hands: Discovers she has this ability in her Rainbow Power form, though it's taxing on her due to her inexperience.
  • Royal Rapier: Her Paladin Armor weapon is a rapier.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Isn't the most powerful member of the Mane Six, but she's very skilled in combat.


  • Ass Kicks You: After being made a giant in the Pony Rangers Doomsday arc, she lures a crowd of monsters into following her and casually sits on them when they all bunch up; instantly crushing them all.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Becomes a giant in the Storm King Arc, and uses her size to great effect.
  • Dash Attack: Has learned how to do the Speed of Hermane's technique from Speed World. While not masterful enough to use it fully, she does know how to use it for a pretty effective one of these.
  • Orphan's Ordeal: Her parents died when she was younger. Meeting an alternate version of her mother decidedly opened old wounds, but also gave her closure.
  • Planimal: On Terra she becomes a female Anguirus, but one that seemed spliced with an apple tree. Her Shinkaiju form is also plantlike, though more mutated.
  • Power Fist: Her Paladin Armor weapon is a pair of gauntlets to increase her hitting power.
  • Super Toughness: As an Earth Pony she has this by default, and her Paladin Armor is built to enhance it. On Terra, she becomes a female Anguirus, and gets his Super Toughness. However, she lacks his invulnerability to fire, but lacks a weakness to it either.

    Starlight Glimmer 

  • Create Your Own Villain: The invading Flim Flam Brothers are from one of the timelines she created with her time travel revenge plan.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Has this reaction to the Flim Flam Brothers invasion upon realizing that her time travel revenge plot created them in the first place.
  • Simple Staff: Her Paladin Armor weapon is a staff.


  • Mind Hive: Is one of three souls inside Fluttershy.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Manifests as one in the Fangs and Claws Arc. This is a benefit to the heroes as it provides someone capable of negotiating on an even playing field.
  • Sixth Ranger: Is revealed to be inside Fluttershy and formally introduced to the group much later during the Fangs and Claws Arc.


  • Cool Big Sis: She might give her little sister a What the Hell, Hero?, but she does genuinely love her and encourages her to be of help in the negotiations.
  • Mind Hive: She's one of three souls inside Fluttershy.
  • Semi-Divine: She's half-Draconequus.
  • Sixth Ranger: She's been active in Fluttershy since the Bright Future Arc, but formally revealed and joins the group in Fangs and Claws.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • Gives one to Flutterbat specifically for telling the vampires about the Hegemony and their hardline practices, as it might have accidentally given them the impression that's the entire Alliance's perspective rather than a minority one. She isn't exceptionally harsh, however.
    • She also gives one to Rainbow Dash for likewise telling them about how vampires are generally treated on other worlds for the same reason.

The Princesses

    Princess Celestia 

  • Big Good: She and Luna co-lead the group and deal with negotiating with the other universes.
  • Fusion Dance: She and Luna learned this from Fusion World and successfully perform it against the Storm King, becoming Queen Equinox.
  • Playing with Fire: Comes with being the Princess of the Sun.
  • Power of the Sun: Is the Princess of the Sun, and has the power one would expect.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: She and Luna fight to protect Equestria and co-lead the jaunting group, doing negotiating with other universes.

    Princess Luna 

  • Big Good: She and Celestia co-lead the group and deal with negotiating with the other universes.
  • Casting a Shadow: As Princess of the Night, she has this ability, and makes good use of it.
  • Fusion Dance: She and Celestia learned this from Fusion World and successfully perform it against the Storm King, becoming Queen Equinox.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: She and Celestia fight to protect Equestria and co-lead the jaunting group, doing negotiating with other universes.

    Queen Equinox 

  • Fusion Dance: Of Celestia and Luna.
  • Mundane Utility: After the Storm King conflict ended, Celestia and Luna stayed fused into her to benefit from her more balanced mentality making some government work easier to do.
  • Physical God: Her components are already this, and she's it even more so.

    Princess Cadence 

  • Fusion Dance: With Shining Armor to form Crystal Peytral.
  • Happily Married: With Shining Armor. Their entire reason for forming Crystal Peytral is to express their love for each other.

Cheerilee and her Sisters

  • Action Survivor: Are this in most combat situations they end up in, as while well equipped, they're not world saving heroes or military trained Wonderbolts like the other teams. As such, they more often and not have to get out of the situations they find themselves in by quick thinking above all else. This has not stopped them from beating Slenderstallion and fighting off the Death Crawlers.
  • Fusion Dance: They learn this tactic and can fuse into Triple Berry. Cherry and Berry can fuse into Fruit Punch as well.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: Subverted, as they're fraternal. While Cherry Blossom and Cheerilee look heavily similar to each other, their sister, Berry Punch, is totally different.
  • Sibling Team: A team of female fraternal triplets, triplets to be exact.


  • An Axe to Grind: Her Paladin Armor equips her with a fireman's ax. However, given her personality, she prefers to use it as intended for rescue and destroying obstacles.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Runs into her Cheerilee's Garden self. She promptly powers up her Paladin Armor and puts a stop to it. Nonviolently at that.
  • Mama Bear: Don't hurt a child in her presence. Her Cheerilee's Garden self, Slenderstallion, and the Alpha Death Crawler both find this out the hard way.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Not to Cherry Blossom's extent, but she did train in wrestling when she was filling in for her sister and thus does know how to fight using it if needed.

    Cherry Blossom 

  • Action Girl: She isn't the Equestrian Wrestling champion for nothing. She's the main combatant of the three if they get into a fight and the one who contributes most to Triple Berry's fighting skills.
  • The Big Guy: While not physically larger, she's more muscular and physically strong than her sisters due to being a pro-wrestling champion.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Is the pro-wrestling champion of Equestria.

    Berry Punch 

  • The Alcoholic: Subverted: this version of her is not this trope, she's just a wine tester.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Her contribution to Triple Berry is her ability to analyze things and her eye for detail from her job as a wine tester. That doesn't sound as impressive as Cherry's wrestling skills or Cheerilee's intelligence, but all three together make Triple Berry a Genius Bruiser.
  • Shock and Awe: While her armor's defibrillators are for their intended usage, they're also designed to be capable of simply administering an electric shock for offensive purposes to make up for her armor having no real weaponry otherwise. She can also overcharge them to increase the shock. Given the rarity of people needing a defibrillator, she's used this function more than their primary use.
  • The Medic: Due to being the least capable of fighting of the trio, she wears a Medic Paladin suit.

    Fruit Punch 

    Triple Berry 

  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Thanks to combining Cheerilee's intelligence with Berry Punch's analytical ability from being a wine taster, she has this.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Manages to defeat Slenderstallion in a one on one fight, though not without considerable effort and taking quite a beating.
  • Extra Eyes: Has four eyes.
  • Finishing Move: Uses Cherry Blossom's Spinning Appleloosa Roll spinning elbow drop to knock out Slenderstallion. As she points out, the fact she weighs well over a ton makes her version considerably more devastating a move.
  • Fusion Dance: The fusion of the 'Berry Triplets'.
  • Genius Bruiser: Has Cherry Blossom's fighting skill, Cheerilee's intelligence, and Berry Punch's analytic ability, making her this.
  • Heroic RRoD: Downplayed: her fight with Slenderstallion puts a good bit of strain on her components and they're left very sore and exhausted when they separate, but aren't hurt.
  • Mama Bear: Inherited from Cheerilee; harming a child in her presence is a bad idea.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Has six front legs, with the other four extending from her shoulders. This is very helpful when it comes to grappling, and thus a benefit to her wrestling fighting style.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: One of her components in a pro-wrestling champion and another has a good bit of skill in it, so her combat moves are naturally mostly composed of this.

Daring Do and Company

    AK Yearling/Daring Do 


  • Ace Pilot: One of the main pilots of the Bolt Wings and also one of the pilots of Guardian 1
  • Action Girl: Leader of the Wonderbolts, and can more than back it up.
  • An Axe to Grind: Her Paladin Armor comes with a fireman's ax.
  • Powered Armor: Uses a mass produced Paladin Armor, specifically one designed for fire rescue work.
  • Secret Keeper: Is made aware of the fact Daring Do is real and AK Yearling is her.



    Prince Shining Armor 

  • Fusion Dance: With Princess Cadence to form Crystal Peytral.
  • Happily Married: To Princess Cadence, like in canon.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His Paladin Armor uses a sword and shield as its weapons.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: The other half of his Paladin Armor is a shield.
  • Magic Knight: His Paladin Armor makes him a literal one.
  • Super Prototype: Technically speaking: his Paladin Armor is based on the prototype of the mass production Paladin Armor his counterpart in the world the tech originated from wore. As he has massive magic reserves, he's capable of using it just fine.

    Crystal Peytral 

  • Ambiguous Gender: Is a fusion of the male Shining Armor and female Princess Cadence, and thus very androgynous. They're confused too, to the point they can't even figure out what their title actually would be.
  • Extra Eyes: Has four eyes, but that's it, due to being an extremely stable fusion.
  • Fusion Dance: Of Shining Armor and Princess Cadence.
  • Made of Good: Is a love based fusion, and thus the embodiment of their components' love for each other.
  • Mundane Utility: Was first formed simply to relax as an expression of love by their components.
  • The Power of Love: Is the embodiment of Shining Armor and Cadence's love for each other. Half of them is also the Alicorn of Love.

    Big Macintosh 

  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: Is the main character of an arc where he goes to the Bright Future universe to try and become one, rather than the Mane Six or the other jaunter teams.
  • Winged Unicorn: Desires to become one, and as a result goes to the Bright Future world to undergo the process of Alicornification.

    Virtual Minuette 

  • Alternate Self: Is an alternate Minuette, but immigrated to the prime universe and now lives in the jaunting base's computer.
  • Brain Uploading: Her entire Equus did this.
  • Digitized Hacker: While not her primary choice of career, she is very capable of being this. She does so to the invading Flim Flam Brothers as part of Twilight's plan to defeat them, hijacking their entire propaganda network by herself.
  • Genki Girl: Just like her prime self.
  • Mission Control: Her job at the jaunting base and why she's living in their computer systems.
  • Time Master: Has time magic and can effect it in limited ways. Helps when it comes to hacking.

    Doctor Whooves 

  • Badass Boast: He's implied to have given one to the invading Martians in the Traveler!Tales Seven's universe. Whatever he said, and given who he actually is, it was enough to make them ultimately barter peaceful relocation to an alternate universe with an Equus that never evolved intelligent life.
  • Dimensional Traveler: Is implied, and eventually confirmed, to actually be the Doctor in pony form and thus not actually native to this universe.
  • Hero of Another Story: He's the Doctor, and Derpy is his companion. But as far as the prime story is concerned, he's just another member of the Jaunt project who occasionally has a hoof in events.
  • Mission Control: He's often seen in this role at the Jaunting base.

    Shadow Web/Blackguard 

  • Arc Villain: Of the Project Blackguard Arc.
  • Evil Genius: Managed to reverse engineer the Paladin System to make his own Evil Knockoff on his own.
  • Evil Knockoff: The Blackguard Armor, a bootleg version of the Paladin System he created to try and counter the Guard's new upgrades.
  • Genius Bruiser: An Evil Genius and, wearing the Blackguard Armor, a good enough fighter to go toe to toe with Shining Armor.

    The Storm King 

  • Adaptational Badass: Is way stronger than his prime self ever was due to For Want of a Nail. While he doesn't conquer Canterlot, he manages to push the significantly stronger Equestria and their allies even harder than the invading Flim Flam Brothers. It takes Rodan, Ultramare Harmony, and Seiryu in their Super Modes along with a kaijufied Rainbow Dash attacking Zeus from the outside and Queen Equinox and Cadence from inside it to finally defeat him.
  • Arc Villain: Of the Eye of the Storm Arc.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He was well aware the Hegemony would be a problem, so he came prepared to the battle with upgraded versions of G1 Troggles comparable to Warhammer Orks specifically to counter them that he got from Ispita, as well as some even stronger Ram Necromancers. Turns out Poseidon can eject from Zeus as an escape pod.
  • Discard and Draw: His mech suit has no Anti-Magic materials in it, as they'd interfere with the magical artifacts power it. He's so immensely powerful he doesn't need it anymore.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Played up more as this, as while an affable, funny villain, he has moments of serious malice and poses a much larger threat than in canon.
  • Humongous Mecha: What Zeus actually is.
  • Inevitable Mutual Betrayal: How he saw himself and Tempest. As he's a sociopath and she's already proven herself a traitor, it was inevitable one would stab the other in the back once You Have Outlived Your Usefulness. It's unclear if he's right, but there's some implication Tempest did indeed intend to betray him.
  • Laughably Evil: As in canon, he's this trope. Even at his strongest, he's still making jokes and comical asides.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: As in canon, he meets his demise this way.
  • Meta Mecha: Is inside Poseidon piloting Zeus.
  • Mini-Mecha: Constructs one for himself using the wreckage of the Flim Flam Brothers' armada. It's called Poseidon, and it also functions as a cockpit for Zeus..
  • Psycho Electro: Is rather fond of using his new Weather Manipulation powers to smite enemies.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to Tempest when he betrays her, pointing out that Tempest has no right to claim being a loyal person and he's betraying her because she's a traitor herself.
  • Super Weapon Surprise: The heroes know he's got a super weapon named Zeus and try to arrive before he can complete it. He reveals his Mini-Mecha when they show up. That wasn't Zeus, Zeus is a Humongous Mecha capable of generating a Category 5 hurricane and is able to keep pace and even overpower Rodan, Seiryu, and Ultramare Harmony in a three on one battle.
  • Take Over the World: As in canon, this is his goal. Unlike canon, he doesn't need to invade Equestria to grow powerful enough to attempt it due to For Want of a Nail and the heroes are now on a race against time to stop his superweapon Zeus from being completed and allowing him to do so.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Salvaged the wreckage of the Flim Flam Brother's armada to upgrade himself and his army. His own upgrade causes him to become as strong as Lord Tirek during his fight with Twilight (in other words: stronger than Discord) and it takes all four Princesses at once and not holding back to fight him now. And that's not even his ultimate weapon, Zeus. It takes Rodan, Seiryu, and Ultramare Harmony in their Super Modes along with a kaijufied Rainbow Dash attacking him from the outside and Cadence and Equinox attacking it from the inside to finally bring it down.
  • Villain Cred: Managed to make the 'Multiverse Villain Leaderboard' at 1000, which Ispita commends him for. Especially given the Flim Flam Brothers didn't even make the Leaderboard.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Starts going out of control and berserk after Rodan's Super Mode is accessed and Zeus begins to lose.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: Attempts this after Zeus is destroyed using the badly damaged Poseidon, but Queen Equinox and Cadence put a stop to that.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: Subverted: due to For Want of a Nail, the heroes are way stronger but so is he.
  • Weather Manipulation: Unlike his prime self, he managed to gain this power well before he ever arrived in Equestria due to For Want of a Nail. Long enough to avoid running into the How Do I Shot Web? problem his prime self did. Once Zeus is operational, he can create a Category 5 hurricane.

    Tempest Shadow 

  • Didn't See That Coming: She fails to petrify the Princesses with the Obsidian Spheres because Rainbow Dash surprises her with her Rolling Attack. As the Rolling Attack is from Speed World, Tempest had no idea it even existed, let alone what Rainbow could do with it, explaining why it took her off guard. She also didn't see the Storm King betraying her coming either.
  • The Dragon: To the Storm King, as in canon.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Is reformed in the end, as in canon.
  • The Heavy: Subverted: she still plays a big role, but due to For Want of a Nail, the Storm King is the primary threat of the arc.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Takes the bullet for the Mane Six when the Storm King tries to use the last Obsidian Orb on them, though she is saved.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Betrayed her homeland to the Storm King and betrayed Queen Novo's trust, the Storm King betrays her in the end. He explicitly cites her traitorous tendencies as why he's betraying her: he believes she'll stab him in the back if he actually did repair her horn.
  • Tragic Villain: As in canon, she lost her horn and was abandoned by her friends, resulting in her growing up bitter and selfish. Her motivation for joining the Storm King is for him to repair it.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Being repeatedly hammered by Armor Piercing Questions by Princess Fizzlepop drives her into one.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: The Storm King tries to kill her when she's no longer useful to him because he doesn't trust her not to betray him if he did give him what she wanted. Twilight and Rodan save her however.

    Queen Chrysalis 

  • Arc Villain: Shares this role with Black Star for the "Bearers of Two Worlds" Arc.
  • Emotion Eater: As in canon, she eats love. Black Star is such a narcissist that her self-love powers up Chrysalis by her mere presence.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Has a brief scuffle with Black Star after freeing her before the two decide to team up.
  • Inevitable Mutual Betrayal: She and Black Star are very upfront about the fact they'll inevitably betray each other, but only after they've won.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: Subverted; she's actively trying to upgrade herself to match up to the Alliance and ultimately teams up with Black Star to do so.
  • Villainous Friendship: She and Black Star might plan to inevitably stab each other in the back, but otherwise get along very well to the point they refer to the other as the only person other than themselves they've ever actually liked.
  • Villain Song: Sings a duet with Black Star based off "A Story Told" about their revenge plan on both their worlds.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Black Star.
  • Wicked Witch: Refers to herself as such.


  • Alien Blood: Celestial Pony blood is colored bright pink and has bioluminescent properties. Black Star's is black, presumably due to her dark magic.
  • Aliens Speaking English: Justified. They speak their own language but have been observing Equus for some time now, and thus have made a translator to let them communicate.
  • Bioluminescence Is Cool: Everything on Stellaria is bioluminenscent by nature.
  • Energy Beings: Shadow Striders are energy beings that look like floating eyeballs, except for their queen who resembles a giant one eyed serpent made of energy.
  • First Contact: They initiate it when they feel Equestria has reached a certain tech level.
  • Flying Saucer: Their spaceship is one of these.
  • Gravity Master: Graviton Ponies can manipulate their personal gravity and that of what they're touching, letting them levitate, slow falls, walk on ceilings and walls, and emulate Super Strength among other things.
  • Higher-Tech Species: Played With. They were far more advanced than Equestria, but due to the Jaunting, they've caught up and that's why First Contact has happened.
  • I Come in Peace: They say this several times when setting up First Contact.
  • Imagination-Based Superpower: Stardust Ponies can mold their stardust into various constructs and are mainly limited by their imagination with what they can make. Rainbow Dash compares it to Green Lantern Expy Radiance.
  • Innocent Aliens: They have no desire to cause harm, merely make peaceful first contact.
  • Intangible Theft: Shadow Striders can steal shadows and then possess them to turn into a clone of the target. As they've had a Heel–Race Turn along with their queen, they no longer steal them but borrow them.
  • Light 'em Up: The Solar Sailer tribe has wings with energy membranes that can be used to catch and manipulate light.
  • Luminescent Blush: Justified: their blood is bioluminescent so so when they blush, it's literally glowing.
  • No Biological Sex: Shadow Striders have this, as they're Energy Beings and reproduce by budding. They still have a concept of gender, with Corona being female and Penumbra being male.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: The Stellarian equal of a dragon, a Glowstone Wyvern, is as their name suggests a Wyvern, a dragon with wings instead of front legs, with the same bioluminenscent traits all Stellarian species have, and are also mammal-like reptiles rather than straight reptiles.
  • Proud Warrior Race: The Reptilians are this, being warriors who pride themselves in their combat ability and their equivalent of Hearth's Warming involves a combat tournament. More mellow than a lot of versions.
  • Translator Microbes: Have translator necklaces to allow them and the denizens of Equus to communicate effectively.
  • Wrong Context Magic: Stellarian Magic and Equestrian magic is completely different. Thus the Friendship School's Stellarian Students' magic wasn't affected nearly as much by Cozy Glow's plan, letting them be a Spanner in the Works for her plan.

    Queen Asteria 

    Princess Nova 

  • All Your Powers Combined: Is her species' version of an Alicorn, and thus has their combined powers.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Is Asteria's graduated student, implying that like Twilight, she was a normal Celestial Pony who ascended.
  • Hero of Another Story: Leads her own team of Bearers using her planet's equal to the Elements. She represents Light, like Twilight does Magic.

    Comet Trail 

  • Hero of Another Story: Is one of the Bearers' equivalents on Stellaria, being the holder of the Light of Courage.
  • Light 'em Up: As a Solar Sailor, he can manipulate light with his wings.
  • Smug Super: Similar to Rainbow Dash: he's incredibly fast and well aware of it.
  • Super Speed: Claims to be his planet's fastest pony and is eager to race Rainbow Dash.

    Star Map 

  • Genki Girl: Like Pinkie Pie, she's happy and cheerful.
  • Gravity Master: Is a Graviton Pony and thus can manipulate her personal gravity and that of anything she's touching.
  • Hero of Another Story: Is one of the Bearers' equivalents on Stellaria, being the holder of the Light of Wonder.
  • The World Is Just Awesome: Essentially how she sees everything. Given she's the holder of Light of Wonder, it's no surprise.



  • Emergency Services: Is a Light Bringer, a Stellarian rescue worker.
  • Gravity Master: As a Graviton Pony, he can manipulate his personal gravity and that of what he's touching.
  • Hero of Another Story: Is one of the Bearers' equivalents on Stellaria, holding the Light of Inspiration. He's also a rescue worker, or Light Bringer.
  • Nice Guy: Is very encouraging to Fluttershy when they meet and treats her kindly.
  • The Cape: According to a bio, he's this. He's also a rescue worker, or Light Bringer.

    New Horizons 

  • Hero of Another Story: Is one of the Bearers' equivalents on Stellaria, holding the Light of Hope.
  • Light 'em Up: As a Solar Sailor, he can manipulate light with his wings.

    Dwarf Star 

  • Gravity Master: She's a Graviton Pony and thus has gravity manipulation powers.


  • Cloudcuckoolander: He comes off as this due to his very alien mindset.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He was adamant about returning the Talon merc's shadow, saying not even hired killers deserve the effects of losing it permanently.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: His speech can be overly-technical and peppered with exacting jargon.
  • Starfish Aliens: He's a Shadow Strider, and thus an eye-shaped Energy Being with tentacles. His mindset is also the strangest of the Stellarian students.
  • The Stoic: Emotes very little, at least by other species' standards.
  • Stop Hitting Yourself: Said this to a Talon Company Merc when he possessed their shadow and hit them with it. He learned the joke from Peridot.


  • Cool Scars: Gets a set after her duel with the lead Talon Company Merc.
  • Lizard Folk: Her species are called Reptilians. Three guesses what they look like, first two don't count.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: The Reptilians are a Proud Warrior Race and she's no different. She managed to defeat a Talon Merc singlehandedly, and is very proud of her scars.


    Black Star, the Light Stealer 

  • Amulet of Concentrated Awesome: Her Void Prism, which is the source of her power.
  • Arc Villain: Shares this role with Chrysalis Prime for the "Bearers of Two Worlds" Arc.
  • Big Bad: Has played this role for Stellaria on more than one occasion.
  • Energy Absorption: Can absorb light and anything producing light to increase her own power, thus her title 'the Light-Stealer.' This means Chrysalis's transformation flames power her up.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Gets into a brief scuffle with Chrysalis when she's released until the two realize they have some things in common.
  • The Exile: Was banished from Stellaria for her crimes, but returned to try and take it over again.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: Is very vain and in love with herself, to the point her self-love powers up Chrysalis by her mere presence. She's also a very powerful Super Villain.
  • Inevitable Mutual Betrayal: She and Chrysalis don't beat around the bush and proudly admit they both plan to betray the other and fully accept the other intends to do so. They just have heroes to deal with first.
  • Power Gives You Wings: She seems to be a mutated Stardust Pony, but her Void Prism gives her wings made of darkness and stardust.
  • Power of the Void: Her power source is called the Void Prism and was apparently made from this. It gives her the power to suck in light and absorb it to the point of being able to make the sky go black and shoot destructive beams of 'dark light'.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was imprisoned in crystal and banished to the void of space after her last defeat. Unfortunately, her prison landed on Equus and was freed by Chrysalis.
  • The Stars Are Going Out: Her powers simulate this happening, but she's just devouring the light from them reaching the planet rather than making the stars go out.
  • Translator Microbes: Her Void Prism automatically translates her and the Changelings' language to allow them to speak to each other.
  • Vain Sorceress: Is very vain and so full of herself that she powers up Chrysalis by her mere presence, but also a very powerful dark magic user.
  • Villain of Another Story: One of the Celestial Ponies Rogues Gallery and the confrontation with her was their Nightmare Moon. Unfortunately, her sealed prison made its way to Equus and she's freed by Chrysalis, making her their villain now.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Chrysalis. While the two admit they'll inevitably betray the other, they also admit the other is the only person besides themselves they've ever actually liked and get along extremely well.
  • Villain Song: Sings a duet with Chrysalis based off "A Story Told" about their revenge plan on both their worlds.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Queen Chrysalis Prime.
  • Wicked Witch: Is referred to as a witch, and doesn't seem offended by it.

  • Diabolical Mastermind: As in canon. Only in Mainline Equestria, with the advent of Multiversal travel, her plan to takeover Equestria was even more thoroughly planned with various Jaunt tools and minions.
  • For Want of a Nail: Subverted. While she arguably comes closer to winning than in canon... but the presence of the Stellarian Students, among other things, threw a major wrench into her plans. She failed primarily due to only accounting extra factors that led to her defeat in canon, but either did not or could not had been able account for various new factors that emerged as a result of Jaunting.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Despite being better planned and better equipped when she pulled her plan to takeover Equestria, she still failed due to other reasons she did not or could not had foreseen. To her credit, she still did better than some of her counterparts in other universes, who were apparently stopped even earlier.
    • She did not factor in the differences between Equestrian and Stellarian magic, which turned out to be partially if not totally unaffected by her magic-drain ritual, allowing them to go help save the day with the local Student Six.
    • She used an anti-magic artifact to make sure the Mane Six, when trapped in Tartarus, could not use even the negligible magic of the various prisoners to escape. She could not had accounted for the Mane Six using NON-magical means to escape (Where did Pinkie get that Hegemony Melta-Charge to blow a hole in the door, anyway?!).
    • Just in case the Mane Six DID escape, against all odds, she posted Talon Company mercenaries she hired to 'take care' of the Mane Six and prevent any rescue attempts. She underestimated the Cutie Mark Crusaders' and the Stellarian Students' ability to deal with them.
    • Arguably her dumbest mistake, if not her biggest - she got rid of Neighsay's badge and installed a magic-jammer in the School of Friendship. So Neighsay shouldn't be able to get help from Canterlot, right? It did not occurred to Cozy Glow to cut the telegraph/telephone lines.
    • Even though the Student Six still managed to find their way to where her ritual (And Starlight Glimmer) are being held, Cozy Glow as able to use mind-control magic to prevent the other students from questioning or turning against her. Still couldn't stop the Tree of Harmony from intervening and dispelling it (Especially as it is even stronger then in canon from the bonds of friendship formed across the Multiverse), giving the Student Six enough time to undo the magic-draining ritual and free Starlight Glimmer.
  • Killed Off for Real: Not entirely clear whether this happened to Mainline Cozy Glow or not. Certainly, many of her counterparts which were observed to be beyond redemption and too dangerous to be left around are subjected to this fate, or close enough, in one of the most controversial decisions ever made by the leaders of the Alliance.


How well does it match the trope?
