    Twilight Sparkle 


    Pinkie Pie 
  • Abnormal Ammo: Pinkie's magic specials involve her party cannon, which can fire cakes, presents, fruits, and her pet alligator, Gummy.
    • The presents are part of Be Right Back; she's essentially shooting herself out of her cannon.
  • Bear Hug: She delivers an exceptionally devastating one as her level 3 super; it can take out roughly 3/4ths of an opponent's health!
  • Collision Damage: Gummy hurts the opponent, even though all he does is slowly walk forwards.
  • Cute and Psycho: Her level 3 super is her becoming "Pinkamena".
  • Edible Ammunition: Pinkie Pie's level 1 super has her jump up and fling a barrage of cupcakes, followed by a pie, at her opponent.
    • Her magic specials involve her party cannon, which also fires cupcakes and fruit. The food can actually be eaten by Pinkie Pie to restore health or gain meter, according to the developers.
  • Fighting Clown: Pinkie Pie's attacks include waving a giant foam finger, inflating her body, licking her opponent and raining cupcakes on her opponent for her level 1 super.
  • Flower-Pot Drop: Her Party Cannon can shoot flower pots.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: Pinkie Pie uses her Fanon Medium Awareness as one of her win quotes:
    Pinkie Pie: Lookie, lookie! The screen says I won!
  • Instant Costume Change: Pinkie Pie's launcher has her instantly put on her confetti-shooting saddle and hat from the Party of One episode.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: Invoked with her "Be Right Back" move and one of her supers. With "Be Right Back", she runs off screen and suddenly appears somewhere else according to the button press. The super version is similar, but is followed by a super-fast combo with onscreen teleportation.
  • Random Effect Spell: Her Party Cannon can shoot a random item for 1 magic point or one of your choice for 2.

    Rainbow Dash 
  • Anthropomorphic Zig-Zag: Compared to the rest of the mane 6, she fights much more like a human fighting game character. Her idle animation even has her standing on two legs rather than four.
    • Furry Reminder: She can only stand on two legs by flapping her wings to balance herself, though, and her crouching idle stance is decidedly non-human (but no less aggressive).
  • Flight
  • Glass Cannon: Rainbow Dash seems to be this, as she hits hard and fast, but is confirmed to have the lowest health of the mane 6.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: The jabs mentioned in Hitbox Dissonance involve Dash adopting a boxing stance.
  • Hitbox Dissonance: One of her moves, a series of quick jabs, is stated by the developers to have far greater range than the move itself would imply.
  • Shock and Awe: One of Rainbow Dash's specials involves shocking her opponent with a thundercloud.


  • Attack Animal: Fluttershy's pet rabbit Angel, as well as every other animal in her arsenal.
  • The Beastmaster: Fluttershy's rabbit Angel will assist her for some of her normal attacks, and the rest of her animal friends act as her special attacks.
  • Death Glare: Fluttershy's Stare during one of the livestreams is a particularly literal example. It's actual purpose in the final release, however, is to cause an extended period of hitstun to the opponent.
  • Flight
  • Oh, Crap!: Her back-walking animation.
