Characters / My Brave Pony: Starfleet Magic

Go To

Just like the show this fanfic is loosely based on, Starfleet Magic has Loads and Loads of Characters. Among these are...

    open/close all folders 

Starfleet Humans

    Starfleet Humans In General 

    Celesto Grandruler 

    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) 
  • Flat Character: He rhymes very poorly and loves Fluttershy.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: It's established that Rhymey, which everyone calls him, is only his nickname; his real name is William Stirskewer III.
  • Palette Swap: He's just a recolored Flash Sentry with a slightly different hairstyle.

    Human Artie Bristles 

    Human Buddy Rose 
  • Flat Character: He's primarily characterized by being a gardener.
  • Palette Swap: he's just a recolored Flash Sentry with a slightly different hairstyle.

    Human Dyno and Mite 

    Human Lightning Dawn 
  • Improbable Age: Once again, he became a licensed high-school teacher under the age of twenty.
  • Jerkass: Acts rude to Human Twilight for disagreeing with his philosophies.
  • Violence Really Is the Answer: His personal creed, and one that he insists on teaching the human Twilight.

    Human Celestia 
  • 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.

    Human Luna 
  • 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!"

    Sunset Shimmer 
  • Flat Character: She used to be evil, now she's good. She also likes Artie. There's not a whole lot else to her.
  • Heel–Face 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 

    Human Applejack 
  • Flat Character: The only thing setting her apart from the rest is that she has a southern accent.

    Human Rarity 

    Human Pinkie Pie 

    Human Fluttershy 

    Human Rainbow Dash 

    Spike the Dog 
  • Evil-Detecting Dog: Not necessarily "evil", but he does become particularly on-edge around Lightning and Krysta (who is a robin in the human world), apparently picking up on them being more than meets the eye.
  • Flat Character: He's Human Twilight's pet.

Starfleet Humans Villains

    Flash Sentry 
  • 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 Dazzlings 
  • 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 


    Human Fratello 

Alternative Title(s): My Little Unicorn
