Starfleet Humans In General
- Flat Characters: Much like their pony counterparts, they have about one personality trait each.
- Hypocrite: Much like their pony counterparts, they do not understand the concept of "practice what you preach".
- They call out Crystal Prep for cheating during the games, while they themselves use their superpowers for an unfair advantage.
- Jerk Jock: They sure love rubbing in the victories that their enhanced abilities grant them.
- Fiction 500: A retired billionaire astronaut rich enough to own a high school and a good chunk of Mystic Island.
- Flat Character: He's a retired astronaut who owns most of the land where Starfleet Humans takes place and doesn't have much character beyond that.
- Parental Substitute: He's this to a number of the Starfleet ponies' human counterparts.
- Retirony: Starpops has him being pulled out of retirement to help with repairs aboard the International Space Station. He ends up drifting into space and almost suffocating, but is saved by a newly-empowered Celestia along with Spike's Majestic Dragon.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: He allows Lightning Dawn to enter Canterlot High despite him possessing no personal records by... well, owning the place. He does this again when he bails Celestia out of prison, and again when lifting Lightning's suspension.
Human Starla Shine
- All Love Is Unrequited: She's in love with Lightning Dawn, but he already has the pony version of Starla back home.
- Badass Bookworm: She mainly studies astronomy, but she's also proficient in martial arts.
- Flat Character: She loves Lightning Dawn and studies astronomy. The latter is only barely acknowledged.
Human Rhymey (William Stirskewer III)
Human Artie Bristles
Human Buddy Rose
Human Dyno and Mite
Human Lightning Dawn
- The Ace: To an absurd degree. He's impossibly smart and athletic, has a cushy teaching job, is an accomplished vigilante, and has female students fawning over his good looks, all under the age of 20.
- Author Avatar: His interactions with the Human Twilight Sparkle match up quite nicely with what Mykan has said about Twilight Sparkle.
- Composite Character: Takes over the role of Abacus Cinch, who is nowhere to be found in Starfleet Events despite it otherwise being a Whole Plot Reference to Friendship Games.
- Death by Origin Story: His parents were killed in a car crash when a bully threw a beer can into their car which apparently shocked them so much that they ended up sending their car rolling down a hill, where it exploded, claiming their lives.
- Expy: Of Indiana Jones. In fact, the beginning of Starfleet Events, which centers around him, is ripped directly from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
- Flat Character: He beats up bad guys and teaches history in his spare time. That's all there is to his personality.
- Adaptational Jerkass: To the point where she bears almost no resemblance to her canon self; never has it been hinted that the canon Celestia was ever this disagreeable.
- Flat Character: Her love for Celesto Grandruler is her primary character trait. That, and being irritable for her first few appearances.
- Freudian Excuse: Celestia's ill temper is a result of the death of her prized racehorse, a gift from her old friend Celesto.
- Informed Attribute: In My Brave Pony: Starfleet Humans, Principal Celestia is stated to have become tyrannical following the death of her pet horse, Bud, but she is never seen stepping out of line, imposing harsh rules or unfairly punishing anyone.
- Jerkass Has a Point: In My Brave Pony: Starfleet Humans, the only times we see her miffed or angry are when she's justified in doing so, such as when she's told to allow Lightning Dawn to attend her school despite him possessing no records of any kind.
- Never a Self-Made Woman: She was given the job of principal from Celesto, largely out of pity.
- Rage Breaking Point: When Lightning insults her dead horse, she snaps and physically attacks him.
- Satellite Love Interest: To Celesto Grandruler. They've been in love for a long time, but haven't been able to actually get together for various reasons. Essentially, her character arc seems to revolve around rekindling her romance with Celesto.
- Took a Level in Kindness: In Starpops, she becomes much nicer compared to herself in the first Starfleet Humans.
- Flat Character: She's mainly just there to be Celestia's sister.
- Never a Self-Made Woman: Celesto gave Luna her job as vice principal as a personal favor.
- You Are in Command Now: After Celestia's firing, Luna takes over as principal.
- You Monster!: After Celestia punches Luna out when she tries to intervene to protect Lightning, Luna calls Celestia a "Monster!"
- Flat Character: She used to be evil, now she's good. She also likes Artie. There's not a whole lot else to her.
- HeelFace Turn: Due to the first Equestria Girls film still taking place in this continuity, Sunset Shimmer still receives one of these. This also makes her one of the only characters to pull one off without dying or being Put on a Bus immediately afterwards.
- Satellite Love Interest: To Human Artie Bristles. There's not much to her besides her attraction to him.
Human Twilight Sparkle
- Butt-Monkey: Events are continuously contrived so Lightning Dawn will act rude to her.
- Demoted to Extra: She loses most of her plot relevance to Human Lightning and Xaydie.
- Flat Character: She has very little personality to set her apart from the background. Midnight Sparkle is a power-hungry Evil Sorceress, and that's pretty much it.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: Midnight Sparkle loses her Mad Scientist personality and now just wants to gain magical power, rather than trying to understand it.
- Flat Character: The only thing setting her apart from the rest is that she has a southern accent.
- Flat Character: She loves making dresses and is melodramatic.
Human Pinkie Pie
- Flat Character: She acts like a child.
Human Rainbow Dash
Spike the Dog
Starfleet Humans Villains
- Adaptation Species Change: Human in the source material, a Crystallite in this.
- Adaptational Villainy: The Equestria Girls films gave no indication of Flash Sentry being anything other than an ordinary human. In Starfleet Humans, he's the son of Empress Sapphira and serves as her Dragon.
- The Dragon: In Starfleet Humans, he serves as this to Sapphira, his mother.
- Flat Character: That he's evil seems to be his primary personality trait.
- Human Aliens: He's a Crystallite.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: At the end of Starfleet Humans, he gets reformed by erasing all memories of his past life, suppressing his powers in the process. They resurface in Starpops when he hears about the death of Twilight Sparkle.
- Redemption Equals Death: The climax of Starpops has him regaining his memories and Crystallite powers and choosing to fight alongside the heroes of his own accord. However, he gets fatally poisoned by Scales during the fight.
- The Assimilator: Her goal is to use a Kill Sat to turn all of Earth's population into her Crystallite servants.
- Big Bad: Of Starfleet Humans.
- Evil Teacher: In the human world, she masquerades as the principal of Crystal High.
- Flat Character: She's evil and there's not much more to her than that.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: The Crystallites have "vain, greedy conqueror" as their hat, and that's about as much motivation as Sapphira gets.
- One-Winged Angel: Combines with her satellite during the final battle.
- Adaptational Wimp: By far the worst case out of all the characters from FiM canon. Basically all of their notable moments were given to the Demonites instead; the Dazzlings spend most of Starpops severely weakened, playing second fiddle to them, and only being a minor nuisance at best. They're also defeated much more easily.
- Flanderization: Their individual personalities get erased, leaving them as generic villains. It's especially notable with Sonata Dusk, due to the large departure from her canon characterization.
- Flat Characters: They're evil and have very little personality beyond that.
- Unwitting Pawn: The Demonites use them to gather energy for themselves, then throw them under a bus at the climax.
The Demonites/D-Man Knights
- Big Bad: They serve as the main antagonists of Starpops, with Blaze as their leader.
- Blob Monster: Slick is some kind of slime monster with a defined form.
- Blow You Away: Tempest.
- Bond Villain Stupidity: Continuously tell Starfleet that they can resurrect each other should one of them fall in battle as long as at least one of them is still alive. If that wasn't enough, it takes awhile for the heroes to realize this despite the Demonites telling them this continuously.
- Came Back Strong: If one Demonite is killed, the others can revive him, and make him even stronger. As such, they have to all be destroyed at the same time.
- Character Shilling: Claim to have invented the Magic Music used in-story and use that as an explanation for why they can No-Sell The Dazzlings' magic.
- Color-Coded Characters:
- Blaze - Red
- Boomer - Black, Gray
- Scales - Blue
- Tempest - Yellow
- Slick - Green
- Dishing Out Dirt: Boomer.
- The Dividual: They have such little personality and are always together that they may as well just be one character. They even get defeated at the exact same time.
- Elite Four: Boomer, Scales, Tempest, and Slick all serve Blaze.
- Evil Is Petty: One of the members destroys a milkshake machine because they overheard Sunset wanting to get a milkshake.
- Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: When at Star Camp, they are disguised as humans who are said to be very good-looking. They then proceed to spread a Hate Plague among the campers.
- Five-Man Band: Subverted as, while there are five of them, the rest of the group dynamic is absent except for Blaze being the Big Bad.
- Flat Characters: They're primarily defined by being evil.
- For the Evulz: Their only motivation is to spread destruction for its own sake.
- Gemini Destruction Law: Because the Demonites can revive each other, all members must be killed at the exact same time. Amazingly, the heroes have less difficulty from actually destroying them all at once and more from actually remembering this little factoid.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: They're not given much in the way of motivation or characterization beyond "group of demons that want to destroy stuff".
- Informed Attractiveness: Their human forms are supposedly incredibly handsome, although there is little description on what they look like.
- Louis Cypher: Hmm, wonder what their band name could mean...
- Missing Reflection: They do not have reflections and do not show up in pictures.
- Our Demons Are Different: They're supposedly demons, but demonstrate almost none of the typical traits; they're somewhat closer to vampires than anything.
- Playing with Fire: Blaze.
- Poisonous Person: Scales.
- Singing Voice Dissonance: Scales' Sssssnaketalk is absent when he sings.
- Spear Counterpart: To the Dazzlings, from powers to role all the way down to backstory. The only thing missing is personality.
- Sssssnaketalk: Scales talks this way.
- "Super Sentai" Stance: They do this before performing their second Villain Song. Additionally, they say their names while doing so.
- Totally Radical: "D-Man Knights".
- Villain Song: Two. One based on Michael Jackson's Thriller and the other one based on a parody of Lady Gaga's Poker Face. (No, really.)
- Big Bad: The main villain of Starfleet Events.
- Fallen Hero: From a well-meaning witch doctor to an evil witch bent on world domination. What triggered the change is not sufficiently explained.
- Flat Character: She's evil and power-hungry, and that's it.
- Generic Doomsday Villain: She wants to Take Over the World... for some reason.
- Grand Theft Me: Her plan involves transferring her spirit into Cadance's body.
- Really 700 Years Old: Through a combination of magic and cybernetic enhancements, Xaydie has managed to survive for several centuries.
- Weather Manipulation: Using a giant Magitek machine built into her lair, Xaydie can control the Earth's weather patterns.
- Witch Doctor: Is one.
- Action Bomb: Has a Self-Destruct Mechanism built into him by Xaydie to ensure his compliance.
- Cain and Abel: He's forced to play the Cain to Cadance's Abel.
- The Dragon: To Xaydie, albeit unwillingly.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Uses the bomb inside him to destroy Xaydie's lair. Naturally, he doesn't survive.
- Walking Techbane: His presence disables nearby technology, primarily cell phones.
- We Can Rebuild Him: After washing up on the shores of Xaydie's island with severe injuries, the witch doctor decided to turn him into a cyborg lackey.
