Apple-Pie Family

    General 

  • Badass Family: Their reaction to a monster attacking the farm (a frequent occurrence) is to blow it up and eat it. Not to mention, both Applejack and Pinkie Pie are related to them, and Apple Pie is also a member.
  • Baleful Polymorph: A few of them, such as Grandpa Rock Pie (who's been turned into a Living Statue) and the mother and grandmother (both of whom are now dragons). However, as Apple Pie notes, they all seem relatively happy with their transformations and the mother even tried to get Banana Pie to join her (which, sadly, ended badly with Banana Pie accidentally being scarred for life).
  • The Clan: Not as big as the Apple Family was, but still considerable. It's a family tradition to memorize the names of the entire clan.
  • Determinator: No matter what happens, they don't quit.
  • Heroic Lineage: They're the descendants of Applebloom and one of Octavia's descendants. While Octavia didn't do anything of note, Applebloom is Famed In-Story as Saint Applebloom of Sunnytown for breaking the curse on the entire town. Applejack and Pinkie Pie are also related to them.
  • When Life Gives You Lemons...: Essentially the family motto.

    Apple Computer 

  • Gadgeteer Genius: His Cutie Mark is a computer and he's shown working with functioning circuit boards. Of note because home computers don't seem to exist in the present and this being Dark World, its impressive he was able to accomplish that. One chapter reveals that he gets the circuit boards by destroying giant robot moths that migrate to the farm periodically.
  • House Husband: Is shown in this role, likely in part due to his wife being turned into a dragon. An example of Real Men Wear Pink, as he's not portrayed as less masculine for it and he's still the patriarch of a Badass Family.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Has a pink coat and is first seen wearing a pink frilly apron, but is the patriarch of a Badass Family and isn't portrayed as girly in the least.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Is willing to hear the redeemed Mane Cast out and accepts their Heel–Face Turn, even letting his daughter join them when it turns out she's the new Element of Laughter.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Due to living in a World of Chaos, he's unfazed by most of the crazy things that happen around him. His reaction to finding out his daughters just saved a random filly from a pony-eating rock is basically an irritated Oh, No... Not Again! because he thought they'd already gotten rid of the darn things.

    Sparkling Pie/Scarlet 

  • Action Mom: When she heard a rebellion was brewing against Discord near her home, Scarlet rushed back to defend her family and didn’t hesitate to attack Rainbow Dash when she thought she was a threat.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Subverted, she handled the change very well.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Her views on love changed as a result of being turned into a dragon. As a pony, she saw dragon!love as being too demanding; as a dragon, she sees pony!love as being too naive. She does agree that both views are valid though.
  • Good Parents: Clearly loves her family and does the best she can for their well-being. Most issues between them involve her transformation induced instincts
  • I Have Many Names: Her maiden name was “Sparkling Ruby” and her dragon name is “Scarlet.” She answers to all three.
  • Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: Was transformed into one.
  • Mama Bear: Made worse by her being transformed into a dragon. For a pony, loss is hard to bear. For a dragon, loss is worse because of how much value they place on their possessions/loved ones. The only thing that kept her from flying to Chaos Castle and ripping Discord’s head off was the knowledge that her family still need her defense.
  • The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: Her mind became more dragonesque as a result of her transformation.
  • Pals with Jesus: With Queen Tiamat, who even gave Sparkling her dragon name. As a pony-turned-dragon, Tiamat prizes Sparkling for her innovation and understanding of ponies. Her job is teaching dragonlings to cooperate as a group and leading missions against Discord.

    Cream Pie 

  • Badass Adorable: Regularly blows up monsters and keeps a small arsenal of explosives ready at all times. She's also pretty dang strong.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Pretty strong despite being a filly, able to carry four baskets full of gems with considerable ease, even for her race.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Seems to be the older responsible one for Apple Pie.
  • Hot-Blooded: According to Godzillawolf, when trying to give her and Banana Pie more unique characteristics, he went for this with her. Her poses and voice reflect this.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Her name comes from her special talent being "blowing things into cream". As such, her default response to a threat is explosives. Her cutie mark is even a bundle of dynamite. No one seems to know how she gets so many.

    Banana Pie 

  • Badass Adorable: She can send pony eating rocks running for the hills and is later seen prepared to fight the mane cast (not knowing they're good guys now) with a rocket launcher that, given blowing monsters to kingdom come is practically a daily event, she probably is well versed in using.
  • Badass Boast: Gives one on behalf of the Apple Clan, promising Derpy that nothing will happen to Dinky while she's off saving the world.
    Banana Pie: "They'd have to get through every Apple and Pie alive to so much as touch her. And anyone who tries will walk away on crutches!"
  • BFG: At one point is shown to possess (and considering her daily life, probably be no stranger to using) a rocket launcher that's probably bigger than she is.
  • Cheerful Child: While not to Apple Pie's extent, she's still rather energetic and cheerful.
  • Scars Are Forever: Has scars on her back that she received when her mother accidentally hurt her after being turned into a dragon.
  • Slasher Smile: Manages to do one in order to frighten off a pony eating rock.
  • Small Girl, Big Gun: Wields a rocket launcher.

    Minty Pie 
Voiced by: Faux Snyder

  • Badass Normal: After she Took a Level in Badass, seeing as she's just an Earth Pony with a Cool Sword but actually manages to survive her own adventure, defeat and Big Bad, and contribute in the Final Battle with a time warping Mad Goddess. Post Final Battle, she also helps the Changeling Rangers and Golden Tiara defeat Grogar's Anti-Elements Squad.
  • Cannot Tell a Joke: Tries to prove she could replace Apple Pie as Element of Laughter by telling jokes, and fails miserably.
  • Chekhovs Gun Man: Appears along with the rest of the Apple Family, only to later follow when Rainbow leaves..and then end up falling into an underground cavern where she's declared The Chosen One by a bunch of tiny ponies made of winter wind. Yeah, she didn't see that coming either.
  • The Chosen One: A bunch of tiny ponies living underground declare her this when she falls into to their cave, but it turns out to be a trick by their evil queen to wipe out the sun spirits. However, in the end she ends up saving both sets of spirits from their evil Queen.
  • Cool Sword: Gains one called Sword of Summer during her adventure. It generates heat and can even defrost the heart of her Big Bad. By the time she reaches the Final Battle, it's been upgraded to the Sword of the Four Seasons, being able to manipulate plants in the Spring Season, and ice in the Winter Season.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: While she hasn't inflicted much direct damage on Nightmare Paradox, she's very good at distracting her and her refusal to die starts to wear away at the Nightmare's nerves and buys the Mane Cast time on multiple occasions.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: Catches up with the Elements of Harmony in the middle of the Final Battle with Nightmare Paradox.
  • Hero of Another Story: While the heroes are on their adventure, she ends up falling into an underground cave and going on an adventure of her own. By the time we see her again, she's apparently had an epic adventure, but we only see her defeating her Big Bad who lists a few of the things she's done.
  • The Load: Twilight and the others think she's going to be this when she shows up to the Final Battle... not knowing she's had her own adventure and Took a Level in Badass.
  • Never the Selves Shall Meet: She's the reincarnation of Minty's Shadow, while Twilight is her Light. They're fine meeting each other, but when they actually make direct contact with each other, it pretty much Mind Rapes them both as their minds attempt to merge back into one. Fortunately, they're able to break the connection before its too late. While they recover quick, and resolve not to do it again, they're both shaken by it. They're still friends though.
    • Since Nightmare Paradox is Twilight's potential future self, the same applies to her. Twilight weaponizes this by teleporting Minty Pie directly above her, forcing the Nightmare to panic and dodge, buying some time.
    • In the end, it turns out to be a Chekhov's Gun when Twilight combines this with a copied time spell from Nightmare Eclipse to perform a Gondor Calls for Aid across time and space to defeat Eclipse once and for all. After Twilight becomes an Alicorn, they can touch just fine though.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Her mini adventure she ends up going on.
  • Reincarnation: Of G3 Minty's Shadow of Existence (Twilight is her Light).
  • Right Mare In The Wrong Place: While she was planning on going on an adventure, she didn't plan on falling into a cavern and having to save two sets of spirits from an evil queen (it turned out the winter ones saying she's The Chosen One was a lie), but she ends up going through with it and saving the day.
  • Take Me Instead: Played for laughs; she tries to convince Twilight to let her be Laughter instead of Apple Pie out of concern for her. She's not good at jokes... at all.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: Subverted. She announces her arrival at the Final Battle by throwing her Cool Sword at Nightmare Paradox... only for it to bounce harmlessly off her target's armor.
    Minty Pie: "Huh, that always works on Pony Rangers.
    • It works the second time she tries it, with assistance from Twilight's telekinesis.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Happened during her (sadly offscreen) adventure, going from a normal mare to taking on an ice wizard with a Cool Sword that generates heat, which is apparently upgraded shortly there after. When she arrives to the Final Battle, everyone is quite shocked to see her dodge one of Paradox's attacks and use it to destroy the time travel scroll Paradox kept trying to force Twilight to use. She continues being a competent hero after the Final Battle.

    Poison Apple 
Apple Pie's identical twin sister.
  • Alchemy Is Magic: Studied alchemy in life after finding a book on it. It was her special talent. She learned more of it while in Heaven from Zecora. She can make very effective potions using it for a variety of effects.
  • Always Identical Twins: Was Apple Pie's identical twin sister.
  • Back from the Dead: Is brought back to life by Queen Libra.
  • Badass Bookworm: Being a member of the Apple Pie Clan, she was obviously this. Her spirit also helps Rarity by reviving as one of her golems and after being revived mentions freeing some of Grogar's captives when he returned using her alchemy skills.
  • Backup from Otherworld: Her spirit manifests as one of Rarity's golems to help the mane cast.
  • Bookworm: Loved books and would do anything to get her hooves on them to learn more. Her time in Heaven even involved books and learning from Zecora and Ms. Hackney.
  • Came Back Strong: While she was in heaven, she learned alchemy and knowledge from Zecora and Ms. Hackney. When she's revived by Queen Libra's, she's gained enough knowledge of alchemy to craft an acid to break herself and a group of foals out of Grogar's clutches.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In "Fluttercruel's Punishment", she appears in the massive crowd of angry ponies murdered by Fluttercruel, carrying dental tools and a spiked mace.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: She and Apple Pie have different Cutie Marks. After she was resurrected, she's a Crystal Pony now.
  • Posthumous Character: Was murdered by Fluttercruel before the series started. However, she's resurrected by Queen Libra.
  • Unwitting Pawn: She along with billions of other victims of Discord were used by Nightmare Eclipse as part of her "Groundhog Day" Loop plan, dying over and over again for the sake of torturing Discord. Apple Pie was particularly aggrieved when she asks Eclipse about her twin sister, and the latter treats her like one would a bug.

Cutie Mark Crusaders (Dark World)

    Scootaloo (Epilogue) 
Voiced by: Ninja Tales

  • Ascended Fanboy: Gender-inverted. According to Loose Canon Recursive Fanfiction, she becomes the new Element of Loyalty after Ditzy retires (Rainbow is still Free Will) and assists in defeating Grogar.
  • Back from the Dead: Is one of the ponies revived by Queen Libra.
  • Broken Pedestal: Obviously feels this way about Traitor Dash. Though her spirit later appears to Traitor Dash to try and redeem her. She later reconciles with her after resurrecting.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Traitor Dash's Cain.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Undergoes one when she sees that Dash is literally corrupted to the core, driving her into making a suicide attack.
  • Famed In-Story: According to Loose Canon, she's considered a bit of a legend by the rebellion, even about a thousand years after her death, due to her fighting skill. This makes it a tad odd for the rebels when she's resurrected as a foal. Queen Cadence XV still asked for her autograph though.
  • Future Badass: Is able to fight the immortal Rainbow Dash to relative standstill and able to pull off a Sonic Rainboom. Becoming the Element of Loyalty after coming back to life doesn't hurt either.
  • Living Legend: After coming Back from the Dead, she's seen as this, though there's not much focus on it. Queen Cadence XV asked for her autograph though.
  • Rebel Leader: Was apparently a high-ranking member of the resistance before her death.
  • Spirit Advisor: Her spirit comes back to help guide Dash back to the light.
  • You Monster!: To Traitor Dash.

    Saint Apple Bloom (Epilogue) 
Voiced by Robotbutterfly

Applejack's sister from the Dark World timeline. In Story of the Blanks, she wandered away from Twilight Sparkle to follow Ruby's ghost... and ended up zombified by the cursed ponies of Sunnytown.


  • And I Must Scream: She's got the same curse the Sunnytown ponies had, until Liarjack sets her free.
  • Boy Meets Ghoul: She had a husband named Lance, and is the Apple Pie's ancestor despite the majority of her adult life being spent as a zombie. No one is quite sure how that is possible, but it was apparently a very happy relationship.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Appeared earlier on, only to reappear latter when she pushes Liarjack into the Truth during "Apple Tree Part 1".
  • Cursed with Awesome: While it does cause her a lot of pain, her immortality is what let her free the Sunnytown Ponies and Ruby from their curse.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Was the cause of her Applejack's Start of Darkness - she was zombified by Sunnytown's ponies, causing Applejack to see Twilight Sparkle for help. Twilight refused, shouting to Applejack's face that "There's no such thing as curses or zombies!". Applejack snapped and turned into Nightmare Mirror, so she could force everyone to see the "truth".
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Managed to break the curse on all the Sunnytown Ponies, also allowing Ruby to pass on, and had a family despite her curse. In the end, she dies with her only regret being her inability to save her sister as well. Probably the first happy ending anyone we've seen someone get in the Bad Future. And in the end, she manages to redeem Applejack as well, truly earning her happy ending. Oh, and she ended up in Pony Heaven too.
  • Famed In-Story: Is known as Saint Apple Bloom of Sunnytown, for managing to save the Sunnytown Ponies from their curse. Her fame may have recently been increased, since Applejack told the family how she helped save her too.
  • Fan Nickname: In-universe; the residents of Sunnytown call her "Saint Apple Bloom" for her efforts to redeem them. Her own family also calls her "Saint Apple Bloom of Sunnytown".
    • Ascended Fanon: The Apple Pie Family refers to her as Saint Apple Bloom of Sunnytown.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Dies happy.
  • Killed Off for Real: Unlike Scootaloo, she died of old age and thus can't be resurrected.
  • No Immortal Inertia: After the curse is broken, she ages to dust in seconds.
  • Spirit Advisor: Comes back from the afterlife to help Applejack redeem herself. With help from the Father of All Alicorns.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: How does she manage to break Discord's control over Applejack? By getting one of the only four beings in existence stronger than Discord to help. While the Father of Alicorns doesn't simply overpower Discord's control, he's still wise enough to help Apple Bloom convince Applejack to change.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Her death has shades of this. She's probably one of the brightest lights we've seen in the Bad Future, and while she died happy, she still died.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Why she wants to die, everyone she loves has already passed minus Liarjack, whom she still refers to solely as "Applejack".

    Sweetie Belle (Dark World) 

The Princesses

    Princess Celestia (Dark World) 


  • And I Must Scream: Has spent the last thousand years a statue. Subverted in that she was in a fantasy world where she got to have a happy childhood.
  • Badass Adorable: As shown when she and Luna arrive to fight Paradox in the Final Battle, she's still capable of kicking ass.
  • Big Damn Heroes: She and Luna accompany Rainbow Dash in saving the others from Paradox and her Psycho Rangers after recharging in space.
  • The Bus Came Back: She breaks out of said imprisonment and recovers to full power in time to help fight the Final Battle with Nightmare Paradox.
  • Big Sister Instinct: She gets enraged hearing Luna got imprisoned for a thousand years. She's lost her memory and thus doesn't remember it was her that did it.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Her magic was near completely drained during her imprisonment, so once she's freed she's left powerless for the time being. She gets better after Rainbow Dash flies her and Luna into space to recharge directly from the sun. They didn't do it before because of how dangerous and difficult it would be for Rainbow outweighing the benefit.]]
  • Cheerful Child: After being aged down and losing her memory.
  • Fountain of Youth: Discord turned her into a filly. However, in her case, it was a Pet the Dog moment and accompanied by a fantasy world that was basically her paradise so she could have the childhood his Face–Heel Turn stole from her.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Discord erased most of her memory so she could enjoy the childhood his actions stole from her.
  • Put On The Bus: Due to having been Brought Down to Normal by her long imprisonment draining her magic (and being aged down to a filly and losing her memory) the group send her and Luna with Rainbow Dash to safety and to be the back up chosen ones if Discord somehow won.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Was turned into a gold statue by Discord. Finally freed in "My Little Alicorn".
  • Swapped Roles: Due to her Laser-Guided Amnesia, she's now the immature sibling and Luna the responsible one.

    Princess Luna (Dark World) 

  • And I Must Scream: Has spent a thousand years as a statue. Played With in that her spirit was apparently free to roam, but it wasn't until recently there was much she could see that wasn't painfully depressing.
  • Badass Adorable: Helps fight in the Final Battle and holds her own quite well.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Alongside Rainbow Dash and Celestia, she arrives after getting a recharge from the moon to save the others from Paradox and her Psycho Rangers.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Her magic was drained during the thousand year imprisonment, leaving her basically powerless once she's freed for the time being. However, she gets better once Rainbow Dash flies her and Celestia into space, letting them recharge directly from the moon. They didn't do this before because the danger and difficulty of it outweighed the benefit until Paradox showed up.
  • The Bus Came Back: She breaks out of her imprisonment and recovers to full power in time to help fight the Final Battle with Nightmare Paradox.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Some of her responses once free qualify.
  • Fountain of Youth: Was reduced to a filly by Discord.
  • Large Ham: Still the case. The first thing she does once freed is thank the bearers for doing so and telling Celestia how much she missed her... in the Royal Canterlot Voice.
  • Put On The Bus: Due to being turned into a filly and being Brought Down to Normal, the group have Rainbow Dash take her and Celestia away for their own safety, and to have a back up set of bearers in case Discord somehow won.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Was turned into a silver statue by Discord. Finally freed in "My Little Alicorn".
  • So Proud of You: Tells the Mane Cast this for the turn around they've managed.
  • Swapped Roles: Thanks to Celestia's Laser-Guided Amnesia, Luna is now the responsible sister and Celestia the immature one.

    Queen Cadence 
Voiced by: Jaime Hathaway

  • 100% Adoration Rating: Her changelings revere her and are absolutely loyal to her, so much that they call her the "Mother to all Changelings".
  • Big Damn Heroes: Her first known action after her death was to save Fluttershy's spirit from Fluttercruel.
  • Cain and Abel: With Twilight of the adopted sister variety. She is the Abel to Twilight's Cain.
  • Determinator: Remember when she said she'd stop at nothing to save Twilight from Discord's taint? She meant it, and not even dying stopped her from doing so.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Her Last Stand against the Mane Six — she takes on all of them and wins, and is only killed because Discord stabs her in the back. The best part? Since the Changelings survive five hundred years later, her You Shall Not Pass! succeeds.
  • Forgiveness: Her last words are forgiving the Mane Cast for their role in her death. When her spirit appears to help Twilight be redeemed, she forgives her for her sins as well.
  • Future Badass: While present Cadence isn't exactly a pushover, this Cadence is the Hive Queen of the Changelings and can kick the flanks of the entire Mane Six by herself and the only way Discord will even face her is literally stabbing her in the back while distracted.
  • Good Hurts Evil: Well, Harmony hurts Disharmony. As the Anthropomorphic Personification of Harmony, her blood alone is capable of turning parts of beings of Disharmony, such as Fluttercruel and presumably Discord, to stone on contact.
  • Hero Antagonist: Is a hero, but due to us following the mane six, she's the enemy.
  • The High Queen: Was not only a heroic Changeling queen, but actually redeemed the Changelings completely.
  • Hive Queen: Takes this role after Chrysalis dies. Surprisingly, she completely averts the role of her predecessor and reforms the Changelings.
  • Hurting Hero: Was the world's greatest beacon of hope during her day and one of its best heroes...but life was not kind to her. The entire reason Sombra's Your Worst Nightmare power fails to work on her is because it couldn't create anything worse than the nightmare Discord had already made of the world for her.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Despite kicking the Mane Six's flanks, she never stops trying to reach the old them. She manages to shake them, but ultimately fails. About five hundred years later, her spirit returns to help finish the job with Twilight, leading her to redemption.
  • Killed Off for Real: Well, considering how things are with Alicorns, how dead she really is is questionable, but she was killed in her Final Battle with the mane six.
    • Her spirit returns to help Twilight finally perform a Heel–Face Turn (though Word of God says it make have just been Twilight's helping her redeem herself).
  • Legacy Character: After her death, each succeeding queen becomes the new Queen Cadence when the old one dies, assuming her form and name. The current one is Queen Cadence the XV.
  • Love Redeems: Invoked when dealing with the Changelings. Also used to help redeem Twilight.
  • Man of Kryptonite: Being the Anthropomorphic Personification of Harmony, she's this to Discord and Fluttercruel, as just contact with her blood can turn them to stone and her magic is presumably capable of the same thing. For this reason, Discord ran away from her during the fight. The Chaos Six may also share this vulnerability, explaining her success in battle with them.
  • My Death Is Only The Beginning: While dying wasn't her plan per se, she knew it was a strong possibility considering the situation, and decided to try her best to redeem the Mane 6 in the process. After her death, she manages to redeem Twilight five hundred years later thanks to being a spirit. Which of these her rescue of Fluttershy is depends on which method she really used, as one was the former, another the latter, and one simply a happy bonus of Fluttercruel's cannibalism.
  • No-Sell: Sombra's Your Worst Nightmare power has no effect on her because the current state of the world is more terrifying for her than anything it could create.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome:
    • Her fight with Chrysalis is largely offscreen, but she won.
    • She also killed King Sombra a thousand years ago as well, though it's shown in Loose Canon.
  • Posthumous Character: Was killed over 500 years prior to the Dark World Arc. Of course, given she's an Alicorn, it's kind of left up in the air how dead she is, and her spirit may have come to help Twilight.
  • Redeeming Replacement: To Queen Chrysalis, as once she becomes the Changeling Queen, she reforms them into symbiotic rebels protecting ponies from Discord.
  • Rousing Speech: Gives one to her successor and subjects that their kingdom will exist so long as any of them live (she was right). She gives Twilight one later on, helping free her from Discord for real.
  • Spirit Advisor: Performs this role to Twilight to get her through her Heel–Face Turn. Or at least is what her mind presents to her to help her through it.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: To the Mane 6, especially towards Twilight.
  • Took a Level in Badass: The only reason she loses is because she's ambushed when she is focusing on purifying Twilight.
  • Xanatos Gambit: Her fighting the Mane Six and Discord. She wins? The world is free. She loses? She performed a You Shall Not Pass! for her subjects and lets enough of them escape so they can rebuild.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: When Twilight is about to give up and destroy herself, she tells her not to give up, because, among other reasons, she still can change and save the world. It works.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Half of the reason she fights the Mane 6 is to allow her followers, and successor, to escape. Considering the Changelings are still fighting the Mane 6 and Discord five hundred years later, she succeeded.

Other Supporting Characters:

    Guru Fido 

  • Character Witness: Acted as this for the reformed Mane Cast and spread the word of their redemption. While not everyone listened, it was a big help to them.
  • Heroic Dog: He is a Diamond Dog and a kindly mentor to the Apples and Pies.
  • The Mentor: To the Apple Pie clan. He's very intelligent and has no qualms about sharing what he knows.
  • Name's the Same: He shares his name with one of the Ponyville Diamond Dogs. Whether or not he somehow is the same one is never addressed, but Rarity wonders if it is the case.
  • Silicon-Based Life: He, like all Dark World Diamond Dogs, is literally made of diamond, due to the species having mutated upon exposure to the Heart of Pony Land.

    Inquisition 

  • Armor-Piercing Question: Seems to have this as an explicit power as Element of Honesty, as the target literally can't help but think about the question if her usage against Grogar is an indication.
  • Badass Adorable: She takes part in the I Am Spartacus moment when Traitor Dash is looking for the local Rebel Leader and later is the only one out of a huge crowd to speak up after Rainbow's public apology. According to Loose Canon, she takes Rarity's (now Queen Libra) place as Element of Honesty and helped defeat Grogar. It helps that Dark World is a World of Badass as is.
  • Cheerful Child: Despite living in a Bad Future, is still a child and rather joyful. Was also willing to believe Rainbow Dash when she apologized to Cloudsdale and was the first to do so.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Appears in Traitor Dash's attack on Cloudsdale and chats with her briefly before she has to reveal her True Colors. She later reappears after Nightmare Eclipse is defeated and is the first to believe her when she explains herself to Cloudsdale and apologizes. According to Loose Canon, she becomes the new Element of Honesty.
  • Children Are Innocent: Played with. She was too naive to know that Traitor Dash was evil and generally seems to be an innocent little kid, but like most of Dark World, death and destruction happening around her were a part of life to her. She even cheerfully states she learned to fly early because Cloudsdale could've fallen out of the sky at any moment.
  • Constantly Curious: Is very curious and asks a lot of questions about what interests her. In her first appearance, this is treated as child-like curiosity, while the second it's her asking questions to prove Rainbow Dash is telling the truth about her Heel–Face Turn and the situation Discord had had her in. According to Loose Canon, her curiosity lead to her questioning why everycreature called the Chaos Six monsters when it seemed possible they were his victims as well.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Is a Hippogriff, due to Griffins and Pegasi merging together as a species. This confuses some others because they don't know if they should call her a filly or a chick.
  • Legacy Character: Becomes the Element of Honesty after Rarity becomes Queen Libra according to Loose Canon.
  • Meaningful Echo: Her asking Rainbow Dash questions, first it's when she's Traitor Dash and is hiding her true colors to try and prolong the inevitable. The second, it's the reverse, with Inquisition using it to prove Rainbow Dash's Heel–Face Turn and goodness.
  • Running Gag: Continuing from her original appearance, Dark World Drabbles has people talking about her not being sure if they should call her a filly or a chick.

    Angry Pie's Foals 

  • Abusive Parents: Morning Light's father abused her regularly and attempted to use her as a pony shield against Angry Pie in order to save himself. Angry Pie responded by beating him to death and then adopting Morning Light as her own.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In-universe, the version of Little Hex seen in the "Modern Major Evil Overlord" play is much less powerful than he really was in the fight against Grogar. Angry Pie was not happy about that.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "The Valeyard: Lost Souls" focuses on a redeemed Pinkie Pie and the Valeyard saving Little Hex from Pony Hell.
  • Attempted Rape: Discord's League of Auxiliary Minions were about to gang-rape Firecracker before Angry Pie went full Mama Bear on them.
  • Ambiguous Gender: The genders of Fuse Box, Powder Cake, Short Fuse, Hatchet, Latchet, Bubbles, Stormy Night, and Apple Sauce are unknown. Pound Cake, Little Hex, and Bomb Pie were colts; Pumpkin Cake, Firecracker, Morning Light, Grenade Pie, and Spring Dew were fillies.
  • Back from the Dead: After Discord's defeat, Bomb Pie, Apple Sauce, and Powder Cake choose to go back to the living world, with Pinkie Pie's blessing and the knowledge that they'll be reunited with her and the rest of their family again after they die. They have eternity, after all.
  • Badass Family: Angry Pie taught them to fight alongside her.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Morning Light's abusive father tried to use her as a pony shield to protect himself from the wrath of Angry Pie. Angry offered to adopt her instead, and Morning Light watched and laughed happily as Angry Pie beat her father to death.
  • Due to the Dead: After they died, Angry Pie buried them in her private graveyard, and gave each of them a flower and a marble tombstone engraved with their cutie mark.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: All of them eventually found their way to Pony Heaven, by themselves, with the help of the Pie family, or in Little Hex's case, Pinkie Pie herself.
  • The Ghost: Most of them don't appear in person, due to being dead. Morning Light appears as a stone golem and then in Pony Heaven, Bomb Pie appears in Heaven, Pound and Pumpkin Cake are seen in flashbacks, and Little Hex appears in "The Valeyard: Lost Souls".
