The Royal Academy Staff

    General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vlcsnap_2020_06_20_14h36m06s820.png
From left to right: Coach, Ashia, Princess Sparkle, Florian, and Twilight. Not pictured: Antares, Thori, and Cooking Pot.
These are the teachers of the Royal Magic Academy. They all teach different subjects.

    Princess Sparkle 
Princess Sparkle (or Miss Sparkle by her students) principal of the Royal Magic Academy in Funtasia.
  • The High Queen: Not only is Sparkle the headmistress of the Academy, she is also the monarch of the Unicorn Kingdom.
  • Princesses Rule: Despite being a princess, she's the supreme monarch of the Unicorn Kingdom, where she comes from.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Princess Sparkle wields a ton of responsibility, but is kind and astute to realize that times do change in the world of Funtasia.

    Twilight 

    Florian 
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: His eyebrows are noticeably thick and bushy, especially compared to those of the female Fillies. Florian having a light purple coat while his eyebrows are as dark as his mane makes them stand out even more.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Florian is a good-looking stallion with a long, black mane.

    Ashia 
Ashia teaches about potions.

    Coach 
"Coach" (real name unknown) is the PE teacher.

    Antares 
Antares is the astronomy teacher.

    Thori

    Cooking Pot 
The chef.

Secondary Characters

    Zach 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vlcsnap_2020_06_20_14h45m04s070.png
  • The Ace: Official merchandise describe him as "the best magic student in the history of magic students", a favorite pupil of many teachers, and the grandson of the Academy's astronomy teacher. It also mentions that Fillies both male and female look up to him as a role model.
  • Cosmic Motifs: Zach seems to like stars, and even incorporates them in his crown's design. Fittingly, he is the grandson of the school's astronomer.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: He's a Nice Guy with a blond mane.
  • Nice Guy: He's a genuinely good guy. The moment Rose tells him the clumsy Fabian is at the edge of a cliff, he instantly goes running off with her to save him without hesitation.
  • Winged Unicorn: A white one, with a blond mane and a blue horn.

    Fabian 
  • Blind Without 'Em: Those big glasses of his aren't there just to paint him as a "nerd" character : he actually needs them, and his vision is very blurry whenever he loses them.
  • Flat Character: Averted. At first, Fabian seems to have been horseshoe-horned into the show to be the generic "nerd" side-character without much else to his name. However, because he is a nerd whith near-encyclopedic knowledge of some topics the other Fillies aren't well-read on (such as geology and mineralogy), he can provide valuable help to solve a problem the others are struggling with or figuring out something they missed.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: At first, his clumsiness, awkward nature and nerdy personality didn't do much to endear him to the other Fillies. However, they warm up to him once he starts proving himself and providing valuable help in critical situations.
  • The Klutz: He is very clumsy, constantly tripping over things and making a mess wherever he goes.
  • The Load: At first. He gets better, though and actually ends up being the only reason the heroes survive their first real confrontation with Wranglum.
  • Nerd: Oh boy... Incredibly clumsy, socially awkward, obsessed over a "nerdy" hobby (mineralogy), so near-sighted he requires huge Nerd Glasses to see properly, wears a ridiculous oversized bowtie, sports prominent buckteeth... Poor Fabian was pretty much designed around the nerd stereotype.
  • Nerd Glasses: See Blind Without 'Em above. They're huge, even taking into consideration the fact that Fillies have big eyes to begin with.

    Zam and Zamie 

A pair of fraternal twins who enjoy pranks, and in particular target Will. While not truly wicked, they are the most unpleasant of the fillies seen.


    Melody 

Antagonists

    Wranglum 
Once a ruler of subterranean creatures called Grounders, The Wizard of the Dark Mirror lurks in the shadows of the school. With his henchman Battiwigs, Wranglum looks to pounce on an opportunity to steal all the magic in Funtasia.
  • Bad Boss: He is very hard to please and will never miss an opportunity to insult or/and belittle Battiwigs. Though while Battiwigs is well-meaning and genuinely seeks Wranglum's approval, he's... Not exactly good at his job.
  • Beware the Silly Ones:
    • For all his comical attributes, he is genuinely dangerous and there's very good reason he was sealed in the mirror. One episode shows an imagine spot of what he wants to do should he escape, and it's of the Academy burning to the ground. Notably he's both willing to flat out kill the heroes and has actually come close to doing so.
    • Episode 10 reveals that he once went to war with Aquatica and the Mermaid Fillies, explicitly the most powerful realm in the setting. Wranglum won. And from the description, fairly easily.
  • Big Bad: Of this series. Wranglum was once an evil ruler who once sought to steal the Filly magic in Funtasia, but the Fillies defeated him and sealed him within a mirror and locked him away in a cave. He managed to escape the cave and now secretly plots his revenge.
  • Dressing as the Enemy: In "Wranglum in Disguise", Wranglum uses a magical spell to masquerade as a Filly in order to get on the inside of the school and steal the magic. However, the Fillies keep interrupting him.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Wranglum is gigantic compared to the Fillies and they only come up to his ankles. The only other creature that rivals him in size is Farina, and even then she's a bit smaller. He's often depicted in inuniverse artwork as being gigantic as well, though rather or not he can actually grow that big is unclear.
  • Evil Laugh: Can give a surprisingly frightening one.
  • Furry Reminder: He has obvious trouble getting used to his Filly body, walking around awkwardly and tripping on occasion.
  • Gender Bender: In "Wranglum In Disguise", the Filly he transforms into is a female Filly.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: While Wranglum himself is a real threat, he barely has any power as long as he remains trapped inside his mirror. As a result, most of his screen time is him coming up with an evil plan... And Battiwigs utterly failing at carrying it out, either out of bad luck, incompetence, or both. That said, when he does manage to briefly escape the mirror or become directly involved, it's shown they're very lucky he is trapped in the mirror. The sympathetic part also begins to be Subverted as more is learned about him and why he got sealed in the mirror in the first place.
  • Knight of Cerebus: While he's there from the beginning, the first time he's able to actually attack the heroes personally in the magic maze acts as this. While the show doesn't get too dark, it's the point where the characters begin to face genuine life and death situations, in part because Wranglum begins finding ways to become a direct threat.
  • Leaking Can of Evil: Despite being sealed away, he's still able to communicate with Battiwigs and cast certain spells, though nowhere near the level it's implied he's capable of if he did get loose. There are also a few situations where he's able to attack the heroes directly due to specific circumstances. The pitch bible implies this is because he's not supposed to have the mirror to influence the outside world.
  • Line-of-Sight Alias: When he meets Rose in his disguised Filly form, he desperately comes up with a name to introduce himself. Coming up with "Petunia" after the petunias in his mane and hair.
  • Mirror Monster: Wranglum currently communicates via a mirror. He was put in there by the Fillies in the past. He's actually sealed away deep underground.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: For most of the first half of season 1, Wranglum is largely played for laughs and doesn't pose much of a threat...then episode 8 happens and Wranglum manages to directly attack the heroes due to them being in a magic maze where he can project himself. He very nearly kills them several times, and after this begins figuring out ways to attack them directly and put their lives in danger.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Justified: Wranglum is legitimately dangerous and powerful, but he's presently sealed away and has limited influence on the outside world. While he's still capable of performing dangerous spells if he gets powerful enough crystals to cast them, he also needs to gather enough crystals to free himself from his prison, and thus can only do so when the potential payoff is worth using them.
  • Power Limiter: The mirror he's sealed in acts as one. While he can still perform spells, some of which are very powerful, it's nowhere near what he's implied to be capable of at full strength.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He's familiar enough with flowers to know that those in his Filly body's mane are petunias.
  • Revenge: He seeks revenge on the Fillies for his prior defeat.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He's currently imprisoned in a mirror, though still able to influence the outside world. It's eventually revealed its not his actual prison: he's sealed away deep under ground in a crystal cage and the mirror lets him have more influence than he's supposed to.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Feels this way about Battiwigs, and it's not unwarranted. Even the pitch bible states one of his dislikes as being 'having to rely on a bumbling buffon named Battiwigs.'
  • The Bad Guy Wins: One detailed in the backstory highlights how dangerous Wranglum truly is: he attacked Aquatica, one of the most powerful of the Filly realms, at one point in the past. While the Aquamarine Crystal alluded him, he won decisively and in Glitterina's words 'destroyed everything'. In modern day, Aquatica and the Mermaids are slowly going extinct and Wranglum certainly considered it a victory.
  • Unknown Rival: The Fillies are totally unaware of his existence. They do eventually learn of his existence, but aren't aware of how active he presently is.
  • Vile Villain, Laughable Lackey: Wranglum still has his comical moments, but is definitely a far bigger, more serious threat than his minion Battiwigs. He's also very willing to flat out kill the protagonists if he can.
  • Voices Are Not Mental: Played with in "Wranglum In Disguise". The crystal that has the ability to change one's form does not change their voice, only their appearance. So Wranglum ends up having the same deep, gruffy voice when he turns into Petunia.
  • World's Strongest Man: Wranglum is implied to be this at his full power. To note, Aquatica, explicitly one of the strongest Filly Realms, lost to him and both Wranglum and Glitterina imply it was a Curbstomp Battle in his favor.

    Battiwigs 
Wranglum's henchbat helps the Big Bad out in his plans, as well as conveniently carrying him around.
  • Bat Out of Hell: True to his name, he's a bat.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Justified in that Wranglum is totally stuck within a mirror and cannot move around on his own. So its Battiwigs' job to carry him around and carry out his plots. Inverted, however, as he's far less competent than his boss, he's just able to actually be active.
  • Talking Animal: A particular example since the other familiars at the school can't speak in words, and Battiwigs keeps his cover by not speaking when in their presence.
  • Team Pet: Battiwigs is nominally this for the boy's dorm. He's also a spy for Wranglum.
  • Undying Loyalty: Despite Wranglum treating him like junk, he remains totally loyal to him, still offering to help him in his schemes.
  • Unknown Rival: In contrast to Wranglum, the Fillies actually do know he exists, but they don't know that he's a threat to them.
    Rose: Actually, [all the animals in the dorm] are super cute, even though Battiwigs acts a little weird sometimes.

Other Characters

    Bijou 

    Glitterina 

    Lily 

    Farina, the Fire Dragon 

A dragon who inhabits the volcano on the floating continent Funtasia is located on and a former ally of Wranglum.


  • Heel–Face Turn: She was only on Wranglum's side because he tricked her, once she realized it and Lily saved her life she defected from his side.
  • Mama Bear: Do not threaten her egg.
  • Playing with Fire: She's a fire dragon after all, and thus naturally capable of breathing powerful flames.
