Voiced by: Martelle Hammer


  • Adaptational Badass: In this version she ended up being The Dragon to Discord and ultimately the one who enables Celestia and Luna to defeat him when she finally can't take seeing the monster he's become any longer.
  • Cowardly Lion: Considers herself a coward, but ultimately still helps the other Paradise Ponies protect the world.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Wielded the seventh Element of Chaos, Despair. It was, however, destroyed when she was hit with the Elements. Though she later shows she can use the Element of Hope.
  • Fallen Heroine: Became The Dragon to her son Discord due to a desire to protect him. Ultimately rises again to help defeat him in the end.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Became The Dragon to her son Discord out of love for him. However, she pulls a Heel–Face Turn in the end to help Celestia and Luna defeat him.
  • Mama Bear: Loves her son dearly and will do anything to protect him. Unfortunately, her son is Discord and he manipulates this to get her to become The Dragon. However, her love of him ultimately causes her to enable his defeat because she loves him and can't bare to see the monster he became. Also, in Dark World, we're shown her love for him remained and she delivers a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Nightmare Paradox.
  • Man of Kryptonite: Discord learned the hard way his powers didn't work on her when she turned on him. This is because despair is the absence of hope, and Draconequi cannot affect things created by taking away something.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Using the Element of Despair, she becomes a Psudonightmare and The Dragon to Discord.
  • Supporting the Monster Loved One : Even after Discord's true personality emerges and he turns into a psychopathic monster, she continues to love him as his mother despite forcing her to turn on her friends. She eventually decides to help defeat him in the end ironically out of love for him.
  • Walking Spoiler: Being Discord's mortal mother and all.

An ordinary farm girl, and the human heroine of the original My Little Pony series.
  • Badass Normal: Was a normal farm girl. She managed to slay Tirek and is one of ponykind's greatest heroes, remembered even to this day as such.
  • Cool Gun: She used a rifle during the Witch War, with silver bullets with crosses on one side and smiles on the other.
  • Eureka Moment: When Shady mentions the witches trying to open a portal to another world and that she just wants the Smooze to go away, Megan realizes they might not be able to destroy the Green Smooze, but they can send it somewhere else.
  • Famed in Story: Is remembered as a legendary hero to this day. Probably the most legendary. Especially in the second age.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Is willing to kill if need be, but also be merciful when needed. Luna outright cites this as a major reason she was such an amazing hero.
  • Taking the Bullet: Intercepts a death curse aimed at the Moochick by Hydia using the Rainbow of Lights' locket. She survives, but it reflects the spell back at Hydia, killing her.

    Wind Whistler 
Queen Majesty's former teacher.
  • Badass Teacher: Was Majesty's teacher when she needed to learn to read and right, on top of being definitely a badass in her own right. Majesty later makes her a teacher in Dream Valley.
  • Demonic Possession: Was possessed by Discord, he's still using her stolen body until he headed into Diamond Tiara and left her corpse behind. However, she may have inverted this trope afterwards, as her spirit may have followed him.
  • Enemy Within: Possibly. It's unclear if her spirit is actually haunting Discord after he took her body or if Discord was just hallucinating and the part of him that feels bad for what he's done manifests as her.
  • Flaw Exploitation: Does this against Tirek's Reptilians, noting that they're non-sapient beasts who only know fighting with spears and swords, thus lacking imagination. This makes them vulnerable to outside the box tactics, which the defenders exploit.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sacrificed herself by allowing Discord to possess her instead of her friend.
  • The Philosopher: Is literally this, and she and Majesty have many discussions on it, and learning more to add to the 'State of Nature' argument via Majesty's life is Majesty's payment for Wind Whistler teaching her to read. She also is able to help Majesty through some of her emotional problems this way.
  • The Stoic: Literally, she subscribes the stoicism philosophy and a student of the human who invented it in Ponyland.


    Twilight The First 

  • Asskicking Equals Authority: A more practical version. She challenges Majesty to a magic duel (of the more civil type) before allowing her to become the Queen of Dream Valley because she believes a leader should be strong enough to protect her subjects.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: When Majesty reveals she can move the sun and moon with her magic, she instantly acknowledges she can't win a magic duel and concedes.
  • Legacy Character: Is the first of Twilight's family line.


  • Dark and Troubled Past: Turns out she was born a slave in the city of Redwall, which treated ponies as nothing more than animals, except her 'owner' Aeliana who actually treated her as a person until her death saving Firefly, at which point she ended up joining Thunderstorm's rebellion.
  • Defector from Decadence: Defected from Thunderstorm after it became apparent Thunderstorm had become He Who Fights Monsters. The fact she was willing to do this is why Majesty makes her her military leader: Majesty trusts Firefly to overthrow her if she ever did become like Thunderstorm.
  • Four-Star Badass: Earned the General title in the Witch War. That said Majesty made her this in all but name a long time before when she became queen.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Was originally Thunderstorm's follower until her conscience got the better of her and she turned on him for his attack on Meadowville.
  • Not What I Signed on For: Jointed Thunderstorm's rebellion to free their people from Redwall's slavery and to take revenge for Aeliana's death, but starts having serious moral qualms about his actions when they begin targeting innocent people who had nothing to do with it until she finally decides they're going too far. Majesty respects this about her and makes her her military leader precisely because Firefly would be willing to overthrow her should she ever become like Thunderstorm.
  • Super Speed: Like her Reincarnation and descendant, Rainbow Dash. She even invented the Sonic Rainboom, though Rainbow Dash perfected it.




    Magic Star 

  • Amulet of Concentrated Awesome: Created the Alicorn Amulet, but it wasn't yet corrupted and thus she was able to use it to its fullest to perform magic many would believe impossible. Unfortunately, she had to corrupt it to seal Lilith's power away and allow her to be destroyed. The Amulet is still calling to her and trying to get her to use it, and may have done so all her life.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: She may be an Earth Pony, but she has amazing magical knowledge, which came in handy both to Majesty and in making the spell to banish the Green Smooze.
  • Heroic Lineage: Is Trixie's ancestor.
  • Reincarnation: Trixie is hers.
  • Sherlock Scan: Is able to tell Majesty's Golden Horseshoe's place of origin, metal, and craftsmanship purely by looking at them closely, as well as figure out how they're giving her new powers.


  • Seers: Can see the future using her Wheel of Fate. She can see the past as well. Majesty notes her visions are superior to her own and makes her her personal adviser as a result.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Played With. She believes choices guide fate, even if some things are outside of our control.

    Applejack the First 
Applejack's ancestor and the progenitor of the Apple family. She's such a clumsy pony that she puts Derpy Hooves to shame.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Was turned into a Midnight Drake by Tirek, as in canon.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Majesty from Scorpan, who tried to ambush her while she was busy with his forces.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Was one of the ponies who Tirek made a Midnight Drake, which did this to her. After being turned back, she becomes very guilty over it, even if she did nothing wrong.
  • Cool Aunt: To Celestia and Luna at Paradise Estate.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Crossed this after Discord's victory over the Paradise Ponies. She never really recovered, but managed to do some good helping Surprise on her rock farm and marrying her son, helping spawn the Pie family.
  • Determinator: Never gave up no matter the odds or let her clumsiness make her ashamed of herself.
  • The Klutz: Luna states Derpy Hooves is graceful by comparison to her.
  • Legacy Character: Is Applejack's ancestor and the first of their line.
  • Nice Girl: Was a very kind and friendly person.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Tells a young Luna this when she becomes convinced Dark Is Evil and talks her through it.

Fluttershy's ancestor.



    The Big Brother Ponies 

    Spike the First 




  • Green-Eyed Monster: Downplayed, but she admits that she's jealous of Wind Whistler's close friendship with Megan when she thinks she's affected by the Green Smooze (she was unaware it functions completely differently). Wind Whistler forgives her.




    Moon Dancer 

    Sweet Stuff 

    Cheeries Jubilee 



    Heart Throb 



    North Star 


    The Moochick 

  • Adaptational Badass:
    • Played with. Moochick showed some pretty dang impressive magic in G1, but this one is depicted as a powerful, badass good wizard powerful enough to match Hydia head on in a magic duel when the situation calls for it.
    • A good example? When Tirek's forces are facing Lahb, a forty foot-tall spider and getting slaughtered, he steps into the fray. What does he do? Fire a Wave-Motion Gun from his staff that sends the monster flying and leaves it stunned for a few moments.
  • The Ageless: Gained this type of immortality from the Rainbow of Light when becoming its guardian. While he actually lost it when he gave it to Megan, he was simply so long-lived already that continuing his life from where he became immortal made it difficult to tell.
  • The Archmage: Is known as the most powerful white magician to ever live, and shows it by taking on Hydia and battling her to a draw, then moping the floor with several of her relatives. The only magic user shown to be his superior is the First Witch Lilith.
  • Badass Family: It's revealed his older sister Bonnie is the captain of the Elves' royal guard.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Subverted. Even when he decides Let's Get Dangerous! and starts kicking tail, he never kills anyone, instead opting to destroy his witch opponents' wands and banish them to a tropical island paradise.
  • The Chosen One: Was chosen to be the guardian of the Rainbow of Light, and was so until he passed it on to Megan.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Is ditzy and foolish, but described as one of the most powerful good wizards to ever live. He shows it when he joins the Final Battle of G1 and matches Hydia in a Wizard Duel. When some other witches try to hold him off so she can help with releasing Lilith, he won with little effort.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": The Moochick is actually his title, his real name is Randell.
  • The Good Chancellor: Was this for Tirek's father Emperor Chiron. He also seems to be this to Majesty.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Did this during the Final Battle of G1. Not only did he match Hydia head on, he moped the floor with lesser witches when they fought him.
  • Mana Drain: Turns out he knows this spell, but only uses it as a medical spell. Tirek on the otherhand...
  • The Mentor: Is depicted as this for the G1 ponies, as well as Tirek.
  • Nice Guy: As in G1, he's undoubtedly a kind soul. He even took a reformed Draggle under his wing as his apprentice.
    • His Establishing Character Moment in Tirek's origin story was saving a freaking dragon out of the kindness of his heart.
    • Also shown when Tirek's forces run into a group of monsters created by Lilith. He proceeds to put a Manticore to sleep in a few seconds and ultimately sends the gigantic spider Lahb flying with a Wave-Motion Gun.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He's the one who taught Tirek his Mana Drain power. Downplayed in that he had no way of knowing where that would lead.
  • Posthumous Character: Died shortly after the G2 apocalypse, presumably of old age.
  • Time Abyss: Was born in Tirek's life time, meaning he predates Ponyland's founding by some time and predates ponies gaining sapience. This is due to him holding the Rainbow of Light as its guardian, his death came from old age from giving it up...centuries later.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Uses one to blast Lahb away during the fight with her.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Played With. He believes Fate gives great destinies that should not be avoided, but also notes this is because one can only fight Fate in this context by proving unworthy of it at which point it will be given to one more worthy. Given that he personally saw Tirek change destiny for the worst and what later happens with Sunset Shimmer and Twilight, he's got a point.

The Moochick's older sister. She is the captain of the Elven guard.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Leader of the Elves' guard and as skilled a fighter as her brother is a mage.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Is the Moochick's elder sister and protective of him.
  • Mythology Gag: Is named after Bonnie Zacherle, the creator of the My Little Pony franchise.
  • Super Speed: Is capable of moving with enough speed and grace to wipe out a large number of Tirek's Reptilian mooks without them able to lay a hit on her.


  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Comes to the Elf Kingdom's aid because Moochick came to him during his time of need.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Arrives to save the Elf Kingdom from Tirek's forces.
  • The Chosen One: Was the chosen guardian of the Rainbow of Darkness before Tirek got his hands on it.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Was the guardian of the Rainbow of Darkness, but was quite benevolent.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Dies defeating Smaug, one of the most evil dragons to ever live.
  • Heroic Willpower: Such was his desire to help his friends, he was able to resist Queen Tiamat's control long enough to reason with her.
  • Kaiju: Is a fully grown dragon.
  • Legacy Character: Is Spike's ancestor and seems to be the first to bare that name.
  • Hulk Speak: Speaks this way until the Rainbow of Darkness affected him.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He never intentionally abused the Rainbow of Darkness while he owned it (either its power or the Rainbow itself), but likewise never used it unless needed. As it's a wild, chaotic entity, this resulted in it coming to resent and hate him, to the point of making it easy prey for Tirek's Toxic Friend Influence on it. It actually chose to allow him to die when it could have saved him.
  • One-Man Army: As any dragon worth his salt. Him arriving to help the Elf Kingdom turned the situation from hopeless to a victory.
  • Posthumous Character: Died thousands of years ago.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Goes on one against Smaug for killing his mate and all but one of their clutch of eggs.
  • Taking You with Me: Realizes he's going to die fighting Smaug, but refuses to lose to him, ultimately killing Smaug before he goes.

    Queen Majesty 

  • Amplifier Artifact: Her Golden Horseshoes, but ultimately Played With. They don't actually power her up in and of themselves, merely act as a focus to allow her to use her magic better in general rather than increase it. The various powers they grant her is due to them being extremely in sync with her magic. However, they did become this for her descendants, as her residual mana inside powers them up.
  • Anti-Hero: She's undoubtedly good, but her Origins Episode revolves around her going on a brutal Roaring Rampage of Revenge against the ones who murdered her herd and she's very willing to kill if she needs to.
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: Her Origins Episode ends with her coronation as Queen of Dream Valley.
  • Badass Boast: Gives one to Scorpan when he comes to try and get ponies for Tirek's ritual.
    Majesty: Tell your master that Dream Valley will not bow to his tyranny, nor surrender our own to him! He will never lay a hand on even one pony! NOT ONE, EVER! The Queen has spoken!
  • Dark Is Not Evil: The First Spellcaster describes her power as being akin to the Rainbow of Darkness, being a 'noble darkness' in contrast to the corruptive darkness of the villains. She's capable of absorbing strength from the Rainbow of Darkness when Tirek uses it against her rather than being turned into a monster as intended.
  • Death Seeker: Becomes this for awhile after her encounter with Zaleria.
  • Defiant to the End: Even when it's clear she's too badly hurt to beat Tirek, she keeps fighting to the end and manages to screw him over in her last moments.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Comes close to this after Feanor, Black Anvil, and the Order are killed and she believes the elves destroyed themselves. She snaps out of it after a talk with Queen Tiamat and finding Heathspike's last surviving egg.
  • Doomed by Canon: As much as the readers want Majesty to win, there's no way she's ever walking away victorious from her showdown with Tirek as the events of the rescue at Midnight castle happened in this canon. If she is still alive, the events of Rescue at Midnight Castle can never happen as her presence would pretty much render the original six and Megan unnecessary.
    • Word of God even expands on that with the fact that the events from G1 to G4 happened in a single timeline in the POV series, Majesty's What If? survival of that showdown would cause a MASSIVE Butterfly Effect that would spiral the entire timeline onwards to something completely different. Elaborated here.
  • Dying Curse: A twofold one: she gives Tirek her final prophecy, foretelling his defeat and explaining due to the nature of her Horseshoe of future sight, there's no avoiding that fate. The second is erasing all memory of her from history, meaning Tirek's victory effectively gained him nothing. It continued to erase new memories of her anyone tried to make as well. Luna finally ends it by telling Applejack, who's Living Lie Detector abilities make her immune to it and thus able to tell others and bypass it.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Uses her last moment to royally screw Tirek over with a Dying Curse, laying the groundwork for his end. Like Mother, Like Daughter.
  • Fantastic Racism: Her interactions with Witches have left her with this towards them to the point she refuses to consider the possibility that the Weather Witch is legitimately good when she first met her. It isn't until she runs into a genuinely evil pony that she realizes how mistaken she was.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Sports a smug grin on her face as she fades to ashes.
  • Good Counterpart: Effectively this to Lord Tirek, being a supremely powerful dark magic user. However, unlike him, she's benevolent and good. Moochick even surmises she might be nature's response to Tirek's rampage and thus his natural rival.
  • Good Is Not Soft: As in the comics she came from, she is quite brutal on the genuinely evil and willing to kill. The coven of witches that slaughtered her family found this out the hard way.
  • Heroic BSoD: Goes into one after her friends Feanor and Black Anvil are killed, the Order are wiped out, and she thinks the elves are soon to follow.
  • The High Queen: Is a motherly, kind, protective queen.
  • If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him: Spares Thunderstorm for this reason. Though it's not simply the act of killing in and of itself, rather that Thunderstorm was completely defeated and had lost his entire army's faith and reverence, meaning killing him at that point really would have been nothing but murder for the sake of revenge.
  • Mama Bear: Her slaughtered herd included her foals, adding to her fury. After becoming Heathspike II's guardian, she is very protective of him.' She goes after Tirek directly when Scorpan kidnaps him. This extends to her other eight children.
  • Mutants: One possibility for her sheer power is she's simply a freak of nature.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: She feels rather guilty over how she handled Thunderstorm's Sadistic Choice. Wind Whistler helps her through it.
  • Never Learned to Read: Given she was originally living in the wild, she doesn't know how to read. She meets Wind Whistler while learning how to.
  • No Body Left Behind: Her body turns to dust upon her death. Whether this is due to her Dying Curse or putting all her life force into it isn't clear.
  • One-Woman Army: Goes up against an entire Coven of Lilith's clan by herself, and kills them all.
  • Phlebotinum Overload: How she lost to Tirek: the Rainbow of Darkness overloads her and wrecks her horn.
  • Red Baron: Queen Majesty the First, bearer of the Golden Horseshoes, Ruler of Dream Valley, Alpha of Alphas and Mother of Dragons.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: She goes on one against the coven that killed her herd and family.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: Yeah, the things she does to the witches she fights are absolutely brutal, but they're also evil witches who just slaughtered her entire herd down to the foals and practically worship evil itself.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Is equal to Tirek in power, and their battle left the area around Midnight Castle unrecognizable.
  • Physical God: Not an actual goddess, but stated to be, like Tirek, a Titan, a mortal with power rivaling a god. Unlike Tirek, she doesn't abuse it.
  • The Power of Hate: A rare positive example: her most powerful magics run on her righteous fury towards those who harm or threaten her subjects and children.
  • Sole Survivor: Was the only survivor of her herd after Rowena's Coven slaughtered them. This makes her especially horrified by Tirek wiping out his own species.
  • Spot the Thread:
    • Realizes something is fishy about the kidnappings of King Neptune's people when he mentions the ransom notes were waterproofed with a spell, something impossible for Vynciani to have done as claimed as they have no wizards to do so.
    • She figures out that the second Scorpan she meets is actually the cursed Prince from the original special by realizing its the old Scorpan's blood on the sword that supposedly killed him.
  • Super Mode: Enters one by focusing on her lifetime of righteous fury, letting her briefly gain the upperhoof on Tirek until he does the same with his Greed.
  • Superpower Lottery: Has an natural affinity for magic to the extent of being the World's Strongest Man and the most powerful unicorn who's ever lived.
  • Survivor's Guilt: Shows serious signs of this after Black Anvil and Feanor are killed, the Order kills themselves over the resulting moral conflict, and she believes the Elves killed themselves.
  • The Chosen One:
    • According to Gypsy and the Moochick, she was destined to become the Queen of Dream Valley and unite the pony tribes as one people. However, the Moochick elaborates on it: while Fate chose her to have a great destiny, it was her who made herself worthy of it through her deeds and good nature. Had she let herself become black hearted or villainous she'd have thrown it away and Fate would've given it to another more worthy (as happened with Sunset Shimmer and Twilight Sparkle in the present). Majesty agrees, stating that had she given into her temptation to become a Knight Templar like Thunderstorm did, she would indeed have been unworthy of becoming Queen.
    • Moochick theorizes she might be this as Tirek's natural rival, but Luna isn't sure and states she may just be a Mutant.
  • The Greatest Story Never Told: Invoked: she erases all memory of her to render Tirek's victory over her completely meaningless to him, triggering a Villainous Breakdown that directly results in his defeat. Luna finally subverts this by telling Applejack, who's Living Lie Detector nature makes immune to the curse and thus able to end it, since it no longer serves a purpose with Tirek long dead.
  • The Nose Knows: Ponies in general have a good sense of smell, and as a wild unicorn, Majesty knows how to use it very well. Sadly, this wasn't taken as evidence Zaleria's mechanizations and resulted in the death of Feanor. Thankfully, Vynciani does consider it evidence, allowing her to help stop the Sea Wizard's plans.
  • The Sacred Darkness: She is a dark magic user, but explicitly contrasts with evil magic users by using a purer form of it. She especially contrasts directly with Tirek, who truly embodies Dark Is Evil. She even manages to absorb power from the Rainbow of Darkness.
  • Truly Single Parent: Created her son Lucky via her magic, a mound of lucky objects, and Spike's wish for a sibling. She made Mimic the same way, but from her own wishes.
  • Un-person: Does this to herself with her Dying Curse, so that her subjects and family aren't either crushed by her death or enraged to the point of being blinded by it. This effectively robs Tirek's victory over her of any meaning, something which causes him to be blinded by his anger.
  • Walking the Earth: After defeating the Sea Wizard, she wanders the world for awhile and has many adventures with heroic actions until finally arriving at Dream Valley where she's crowned queen.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Uses a spell calling upon Destruction's power to destroy a tidal wave threatening Vynciani.
  • World's Strongest Man: In the Rumors Arc, the CMC run into a painting of her and she's referred to as the most powerful unicorn royal who has ever lived. In her Origins Episode, the First Spellcaster refers to her as one of the most powerful creatures he's ever seen, including the resident Archmage and she demolishes an entire Coven of witches singlehoofed. Luna cites she may well be the most powerful Unicorn to ever live.
  • Worthy Opponent: She's the only being Tirek ever considered this to himself.

    Prince Valiant/Scorpan III 
A long time ally of Ponykind.
  • Badass in Distress: Gets kidnapped by Scorpan.
  • Baleful Polymorph: As in canon, he becomes the Scorpan seen in the original G1 special, as a result of killing his processor.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Arrives with his army to help the Dream Valley Ponies against Tirek's army.
  • You Kill It, You Bought It: Killed the previous Scorpan, turning him into the one seen in the original G1 special, as per the rules of the curse Tirek created.

    Scorpan I 
Tirek's brother and the original Scorpan.
  • Composite Character: Subverted, he's only the G4 Scorpan. G1 Scorpan was a twisted version of a Legacy Character Tirek created via a curse.
  • Morality Pet: He was the one person that Tirek ever actually cared for that wasn't him, and when he died so did what little good Tirek still possessed.
  • Our Gargoyles Rock: He's explicitly a Gargoyle.
  • The Wise Prince: While he did go along with some of Tirek's goals, he was a far better person than his brother was.

    Emperor Chiron 
Tirek's father and Emperor of the Centaur Empire.
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: Was Starlight Angel's predecessor as Mortis's Angel in atonement for his role in Tirek's fall to evil. He finally passed on when she came and took the role from him.
  • Forced to Watch: Was forced to watch Tirek slaughter his entire race and family in an extremely brutal way.
  • The Good King: He at least tried to be, and while not the best person was on his way. If nothing else, he was far better than Tirek and horrified by his more immoral actions.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Has guilt over Tirek's fall to evil, seeing himself as in some ways responsible for it. He became an Angel of Death to atone for it.


    Lord Tirek 
An evil centaur who terrorized the world the ponies live in with his dark magic.
  • Abusive Precursors: The Centaur Empire was the biggest, most advanced of its day predating Ponykind itself, but Tirek is the Sole Survivor, and given he's the In-Universe equal of Satan as far as ponies are concerned, he's definitely this trope.
  • Adaptation Expansion: His motives are greatly expanded upon from the original story: he desires to cause eternal night to gain Luna's favor, who he has a Villainous Crush on. He uses ponies for his chariot because he needs something uplifted by the Rainbow of Light and his genocidal rampages have either wiped out or forced into hiding the other species that were. He and Moochick's implied history is expanded on in detail as well.
  • A Pupil of Mine Until He Turned to Evil: To the Moochick, having been taught by him. It's where he learned Mana Drain spell from.
  • The Ageless: His dark magic mutation makes him immortal.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: He was the prince of the Centaur Empire and gave himself the title of "Lord" when he rose to power.
  • A God Am I: Has this mentality after he comes to power.
  • Back from the Dead: Was killed at Midnight Castle by Megan as in canon, but came back to life during the Princesses' reign over a thousand years ago. Luna killed him again.
  • Bloodbath Villain Origin: A truly terrifying one. He slaughters his entire species, ending with the sadistic cold blooded torture of the survivors of his attack and his family.
  • Blood Knight: The Centaurs in general were this, but Tirek moreso.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday:
    • His minion Lancaster, who tried to kill him, explains his motive was Tirek destroyed his hometown of Crystal Port and killed his brother. Tirek's response is to state he doesn't remember that one. When Lancaster asks in shock how he can't remember, his response?
    Tirek: Do you remember every ant you step on?
    • He doesn't even remember ordering the Sea Wizard's plan to be put into motion and has to be reminded about it. He doesn't even care, as to him it was closer to an amusing joke than an attempt to get two races to destroy each other.
  • Composite Character: Of his G1 and G4 selves. He performed everything his G1 self did, but is also Scorpan's brother like his G4 self (though Magic Star's words imply there were two Scorpans and his brother was the true one, something later showed).
  • Dark Is Evil: Is stated to have had the Rainbow of Darkness like in canon, though here it's also revealed he used it for evil, rather than it having been inherently such. And then there's all the dark magic he consumed that turned him into the monster Megan fought.
  • Demon of Human Origin: Was once a completely normal Centaur, but has long sense been mutated into a extremely powerful demonic beast and the in universe Satan analog as far as Ponykind are concerned.
  • Dented Iron: The differences between his appearance in G1 and G4 is due to this trope: he was still recovering from his battle with Majesty when he met Megan and in a weakened form.
  • Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: Discovered his warlock Ranahtu was the avatar of an Outer Concept, strung him along, and then converted him into raw material for his Chariot of Midnight. It's implied he was one of Nyarlathotrot's. Ranahtu is impressed..
  • Dragged Offto Hell: Turns out the Rainbow of Light technically didn't kill him, rather it sent him body and soul to Tartarus.
  • The Dreaded: Even to the present days, he's remembered by ponies as what amounts to Satan in their culture. And not without good reason. In the loops he appeared in in the Dark World, after he betrayed Discord and absorbed his magic, he was only enemy who Nightmare Eclipse was never able to neatly defeat, to the point their battles utterly wrecked the world and Manacle assumed she was actually almost afraid of him. Word of God would later reveal that she is indeed afraid of him and was simply too focused on punishing Discord and putting on a brave face to show it, as her history of encounters with him would show.
  • Entitled Bastard: Stemming from being the Prince of the most powerful Empire of its day, he believes he's entitled to anything he wants. His father was horrified to discover this, as that is not how Emperors are supposed to be.
  • Escaped from Hell: He returned to the world of the living by escaping Hell.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Tirek is completely unable to understand Majesty caring about her friends and subjects.
  • Eviler Than Thou:
    • Luna and Applejack both consider him worse than Discord, as while Discord is stronger Tirek is more evil.
    • Sendak found out too late that Tirek was this to him, having not realized that Tirek was going to kill their race. Tirek left him buried deep below the planet, immortal but helpless.
  • Evil Makeover: After absorbing untold amounts of dark magic from Pandora's Box, he changes from a normal looking centaur to the horned, red skinned demonic beast he is in canon.
  • Evil Overlord: Tried to conqueror the world, and they don't get much eviler.
  • Evil Prince: Was revealed to be the Prince of the Centaurs long before he became the epitome of evil. While he wasn't always a monster, he still wasn't the best person even back then.
  • Exact Words: Told Sendak he'd make him the 'greatest of the centaurs'. It's easy to be the greatest when you're the Last Of Your Kind.
  • Final Solution: The number of genocides he committed is beyond horrifying and includes his own race. Notably, this actually backfired on him, as it turned out he needed creatures uplifted by the Rainbow of Light for his ritual to bring about eternal night, but had either wiped out or driven many of them into hiding except the ponies.
  • For the Evulz: A great many of the horrible things he does are solely for his own amusement and little else.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: While being the prince of an Empire isn't exactly a 'nobody', he was once a perfectly normal, if unhinged and violent, Centaur before gradually becoming more and more psychotic and gaining unholy power which he turns on his own people.
  • Genocide from the Inside: He exterminated his own kind.
  • Good Powers, Bad People: It turns out his Mana Drain spell is actually a medical spell he perverted for evil ends.
  • Greed: One of his defining traits: he wants everything to belong to him. It's the only emotion he possesses that he can draw enough strength from to match Majesty's lifetime of righteous fury.
  • Healing Factor: While not invulnerable, he's capable of healing fast enough that impaling him on a sword doesn't even inconvenience him.
  • Home Field Advantage: It turns out his palace is 'alive' and an extension of his will, and thus can aid him in a battle inside it. It being so saturated in his dark magic backfires when Majesty uses it as fuel for a spell that blows the top half of the building to oblivion, and wreaks Eclipse. Which is described as "like lighting a match close to a leaking gas oven in a room full of oil and gunpowder." This also heavily drained its magic, leaving him unable to do so in canon.
  • Horrifying the Horror: Is one of, if not the only being that Nightmare Eclipse ever feared.
  • It's All About Me:
    • Even before he became the being ponykind still fears as an epitome of evil, he was still a selfish one, though not quite to the point he is now. Just listen to this conversation with his father about how he views the soldiers under his command:
    Tirek: I am their prince, they are my soldiers! They and all the other lower classes live and die to make great people richer and greater! Those oafs on the battlefield and the satyr fools are no different than chess pieces; they move at the command of a greater mind that may make use of them to win. It's their purpose!
    • Deconstructed in that Tirek is capable of caring for those other than himself and forming friendships, he just doesn't want to, nor will he ever allow himself to care for the very few bonds he ever formed as much as he cares about himself.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His Origins Episode is by far the darkest the story has directly gotten. Fitting, given Tirek's canon self was the Trope Codifier for Vile Villain, Saccharine Show.
  • The Last of His Kind: Was the last Centaur because he killed all the rest. That said, he doesn't consider himself one anymore.
  • Mana Drain: As with his G4 self, he has this ability. He learned it from the Moochick.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Word of God states that in the Dark World, he was able to convince the Deer to help him during the time Nightmare Eclipse trapped him on the moon in one of the many time loops. Among the deer convinced was one Mother Deer aka the Tree Of Harmony!!!
  • Mook Maker: As in canon, tranformed his monstrous minions from animals. He attacks the Centaurs' capital city with hundreds of thousands of the monsters.
  • Morality Pet:
    • Scorpan was this to him. Scorpan was the only being beside himself that he ever saw value in, and when he died so did what little good was in Tirek.
    • The Rainbow of Darkness is the only other thing he ever genuinely cared about. Even then, however, it's noted he would never love anything as much as he did himself. Also Subverted, as the Rainbow is the only being Tirek treated this way, and it did next to nothing to make him a better person. In fact, the opposite happened: he made it as rotten and evil as he was.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His self given title is 'The Dark Lord of All'.
  • Not Brainwashed: It initially appears Tirek has lost his short term memory from absorbing all the dark magic from Pandora's Box, and is eventually turned evil by it. Turns out all the evil he did was his own idea and he was ALWAYS in total control of the the dark magic instead of it controlling him.
  • Not So Different: He and Majesty come to a mutual understanding that they're similar in their power, ruthlessness, and in some ways savageness. The different is Tirek loves himself above all else, while Majesty loves her friends, subjects, and family above all else.
  • Offing the Offspring: Sired a lot of offspring only to sacrifice them in his ritual to bind Ranahthu's power to Chariot of Midnight. Applejack is understandably horrified.
  • Origins Episode: Has a story arc detailing his origins.
  • Physical God: After consuming the incredible amount of dark magic contained in Pandora's Box, he becomes this, being capable of weather manipulation, beams powerful enough to level city walls, and surviving being impaled in the chest with no problem at all.
  • Precursor Killers: Was the one who wiped out the Centaur Empire.
  • Predecessor Villain: His actions created several other villains, both of his own franchise and others, with Katrina's people becoming as they were and leading to her existence thanks to him and Porcina's Raptorian assistance/manipulators being the Last of Their Kind thanks to Tirek. Dark Heart was either one of his creations or summoned by him to pursue the Care Bears (Tirek was the one they were fleeing from at the beginning of the movie, after his genocidal attack on them). The Storm King was originally one of his generals until he was defeated and imprisoned at the south pole my Moochick.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: His victory over Majesty is ultimately this due to her Dying Curse: Eclipse was damaged and ruined beyond repair, his army was nearly destroyed, his sapient minions all either dead or fled, Scorpan is left with a loophole in his programming Tirek can't do anything about, his castle was severely damaged, all his stolen souls were freed (and his ability to steal more lost forever), and Tirek himself was left heavily weakened. While Majesty's death would have made that worth it for the psychological edge it'd have granted him over the ponies and been a massive stroking of Tirek's ego, by erasing all memory of herself, Majesty ensured Tirek gained almost nothing in return except Spike and a 'defective' Scorpan. Tirek does not take this well.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: After Scorpan is killed, he goes on one against Lahb, a forty foot spider guarding the Pandora's Box containing dark magic that Morning Star set loose. He absorbs some of the magic and uses it in a Wave-Motion Gun that blows the spider in two.
  • Self-Made Orphan: At least considers himself such, he believes his mother's Death By Child Birth was him killing her. He also killed his father, after wiping out his entire species and all his step mothers while his father watched was Forced to Watch.
  • Satanic Archetype: What ponies view him as.
  • Serial Killer: Became this during his six months living as a commoner.
  • Social Darwinist: While the Centaurs were a Proud Warrior Race by nature, Tirek hates weakness in any form to the point that once he declared his own kind weak, he annihilated them. He views him turning Scorpan's image into a You Kill It, You Bought It curse as 'fixing' everything wrong with the real one.
  • Stupid Evil: According to the redeemed Dark World Discord, he betrayed Discord and then tried to fight Nightmare Eclipse in every loop where Discord tried to form an alliance with him, even when Discord warned him of the consequences. To be fair to him, he was also the only being who could actually fight Eclipse on equal terms and break even, as she could never beat him in a straight-up fight.
  • Super Mode: Counters Queen Majesty's with one of his own drawing on his lifetime of Greed.
  • Time Abyss: He predates Equestria and Ponykind itself.
  • Toxic Friend Influence: He was genuinely kind and friendly to the Rainbow of Darkness, but it's noted he ultimately taught it to be every bit as rotten and evil as he was.
  • Unstoppable Rage: His reaction to Scorpan's death. He absorbs a some of the dark magic from Pandora's Box (sent to the planet by Morning Star) and uses it to blow the giant spider that killed him in half.
  • Try to Fit THAT on a Business Card!: Lord Tirek the Conqueror, Slayer of the Unworthy, Master of Midnight Castle, Ruler of the World, Dealer of Life and Death, Prince of Darkness, King of the Living, Emperor of the Dead, and Dark Lord of All.
  • Villainous Breakdown:
    • Majesty's Dying Curse leaves him speechless with rage, after which he lets out a stream of profanities so loud it's nearly heard in Dream Valley. He's so enraged by his Pyrrhic Victory that he refuses to wait and regain his strength before attempting his attack again or seek out weaker targets due to being unable to stand his ego being bruised, which ultimately results in his downfall.
    • He naturally has this response to his canon defeat, spending his last moments screaming in rage and disbelief.
  • Villainous Crush: Has one on Luna. Luna notes that ultimately, for as much as he claimed to love her, he was incapable of truly doing so and was ultimately still selfish to the core.
  • Villainous Friendship: His relationship with the Rainbow of Darkness was ultimately this, as under his ownership, it ultimately became as evil and twisted as Tirek himself. He genuinely did care for the Rainbow and vice versa, but both were rotten to the core by that point.
  • Villain Protagonist: By the second chapter of his Origins Episode, he's become this.
  • Was Once a Man: He used to be a normal centaur, but exposure to unholy amounts of Dark Magic mutated him into something much worse.
  • Where I Was Born and Razed:Let's see, he waged war to wipe out his own people, burned every city they built to the ground, systematically exterminated the survivors, tortured his own parents to death, and took extra steps to erase every trace of their people they ever existed from history.
  • Worthy Opponent: Majesty is the only being he's ever considered this to himself.
  • Wrecked Weapon: His Eclipse sword is wrecked by Majesty during their fight, explaining why he didn't have it in canon. While he's able to make it a whip during the fight, it's ultimately lost.
  • You Have Failed Me: Does this to Scorpan II for his failure at Dream Valley, setting him up to die at Valiant's hands to turn him into Scorpan III.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: He has taken to stealing souls and turning them into reverent under his control. Mortis hates him for this. It backfires when he tries it on Majesty, as she fires a spell down the path and frees the souls, which violently rip their way out of him, though Tirek survives. However, in doing so Majesty poked his soul full of enough holes to permanently rob him of the power to do so.

    Scorpan II 
The second Scorpan, that we see, created via a curse that Tirek made.
  • The Dragon: To Lord Tirek during the Dream Valley battle. At least until he fails his master.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: His original form appears well before we see him as Scorpan, and long before we find out he's O'Brien.
  • Evil Old Folks: [[spoilers:He was originally an old man named O'Brien who willing served Tirek.]]
  • Klingon Promotion: He became Scorpan and Tirek's second in command by killing the previous one. According to Tirek, this happens rather often and was part of his intention when making the curse.
  • Legacy Character: Is the second Scorpan we meet, though not the first of Tirek's replacements by any stretch.
  • Psycho for Hire: Unlike his successor, he chose to serve Tirek and willingly became Scorpan.
  • You Have Failed Me: Tirek decidedly didn't take him running from the Dream Valley battle kindly.
  • You Kill It, You Bought It: He became the current Scorpan by killing the previous one. He did so intentionally to become Tirek's Dragon. He's then killed by Valiant, turning him into the next one.

An evil human sorceress. Her daughters are Reeka and Draggle.
  • The Archmage: She's the witch all the others were calling shots from, and is the Moochick's equal.
  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: As in canon, has this world view.
  • The Beastmaster: Seems to special in creating monsters despite being the most powerful evil witch we're shown.
  • Big Bad: Seemed to have been this for the Age of Myths overall, as while Tirek was worse than her, she was the most recurring threat, and the final one of that age. She even lead her entire family in the Final Battle.
  • Black Magic: Her forte.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: As in canon, she basically considers evil a virtue.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Ironically admitted as a compliment to Reeka when her Green Smooze turned out to be genuinely indestructible.
    Hydia: I want you to know, dear, I no longer despise you.
    Reeka: Wow, really?
    Hydia: Yeah, now I furiously envy you instead!
    Reeka: Thanks, mom!
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: She died when Megan reflected her own death spell back at her.
  • I Have No Son!: Gives Draggle this treatment after the girl's Heel–Face Turn.
  • Last Villain Stand: After Lilith is destroyed and Reeka's Green Smooze is defeated, she and Reeka make one last stand against the heroes of the Age of Myths.
  • Posthumous Character: Died thousands of years before the story began.
  • Villainous Legacy: While she's long dead by present day, she created a multitude of cursed artifacts that still exist including the Inspiration Manifestation.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: As in canon, her children vie for her attention. Though Reeka eventually earns her respect.
  • Wicked Witch: Is an evil witch and proud of it.

Hydia's daughter, and Reeka's sister. Once an evil sorceress like her family, she decided to betray her family after she was left for dead and the ponies saved her.

Hydia's second daughter, and Draggle's sister.
  • Avenging the Villain: Goes down trying to avenge the Green Smooze. She does pretty well.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Managed to create her own version of the Smooze and work out the one flaw nobody in her entire family had ever figured out, and is shown to be far stronger than the cartoon implied, but is noted to have never had the drive to actually apply herself until the heroes were close to finishing off Hydia's clan. During the last showdown, she manages to give the Moochick trouble.
  • Co-Dragons: With her sister Draggle, though she's the more competent of the two. Becomes The Dragon after her sister's Heel–Face Turn.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: After she Took a Level in Badass, it's her, and not Hydia, that nearly turns the way back around on the heroes and out lasts her mother and Lilith to become the last foe of the Age of Myths. She also does something no other witch or warlock in the entire family had ever managed to do: make the Smooze genuinely indestructible.
  • Last Villain Stand: Made one with her mother and actually outlasted the elder witch.
  • Took a Level in Badass: After finally applying herself after she and Hydia are held up in Mount Gloom and studying dark magic, she turns out to be much more competent and even creates her own Smooze that's immune to Flutterpony Magic. During her and Hydia's Last Villain Stand, she even outlasts her mother and becomes the Final Boss.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: Subverted, she Took Alevel In Badass by finally deciding to actually apply herself to the dark arts and ends up going From Nobody to Nightmare.

    The Reptilians and Stratodons 
Tirek's main force.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: At first. Tirek was pretending to be a good guy at the time, so everyone believed the Reptilians are the primary threat.
  • Giant Flyer: The Stratodons
  • Mooks: Are mass produced minions Tirek uses his dark power to create.
  • Slave Race: Tirek created them solely to serve and worship him and nothing more.
  • Things That Go "Bump" in the Night: Before Tirek made them real, they were this to the Centaurs.
  • Zerg Rush: The reason Tirek made hordes of them.


  • Arc Villain: Of the first arc of Majesty's Origins Episode.
  • Asshole Victim: Majesty turns her into a wooden statue then burns her to ashes. Hardly a pleasant way to go, but she's just a monstrous person that there's no doubt she deserved it.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Is the leader of her coven, and the only one who stands any chance at all against Majesty. After producing her unicorn horn wand, she comes close to killing her.
  • Bad Boss: Her reaction to Majesty slaughtering her coven is basically to say, "Eh, I'll just go get another one".
  • Card-Carrying Villain: As a member of the same family as Hydia, she's this.
  • Human Resources: Her goal was to use the horns of the now sapient unicorns to make magic wands of incredible power.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: Reveals that she had a unicorn horn wand already made the entire time, but was saving it as her ace in a hole after Majesty killed her entire coven.
  • Mama Bear: Subverted. She is enraged by Majesty's killing of her children, but only because it deprived her of the chance to sacrifice them to get more power.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Her actions are the reason Majesty didn't stay in an isolated unicorn herd.
  • Offing the Offspring: Discussed but not done; her response to Majesty's rage at her children being killed is to say that she'd have gladly sacrificed her own child for the kind of power she was trying to get.
  • Wicked Witch: Is a member of Lilith's clan, and her Evil Plan is to use the horns of sapient unicorns to make a weapon to become the new Queen of the Witches.
  • You Killed My Father: Ordered the slaughter of Majesty's entire herd, including her mate and foals. As such, Majesty is really out for her blood. Majesty flies into an Unstoppable Rage when she realizes Rowena was the one who killed her mother years earlier and turned her horn into a magic wand.


  • Arc Villain: Of the second arc of Majesty's Origins Story, being the one responsible for framing Feanor for killing Black Anvil, as part of an elaborate plan to lure Majesty into a trap so she could take her horn for use as a wand.
  • Avenging the Villain: Majesty thinks she's this for Rowena, but subverted. She doesn't give a darn about her dead coven.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: While her plan to take Majesty's horn for her own fails and Majesty turns her to stone, she succeeds in throwing the Order into a civil war with each other, expecting it to spread.
  • Batman Gambit: Admits her entire plan to throw the Order into civil war was based on observing them and knowing how they think. She succeeds in that, at least.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: She's part of Lilith's coven, so naturally she's this.
  • Dragon Ascendant: Was a member of Rowena's coven, but becomes an Arc Villain in her own right after.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: While she did a lot of damage, she didn't do nearly as much as she thought she did because of this trope. She believed her actions would result in the elves destruction, but while damage was done, it wasn't nearly that severe because they weren't as self destructive or violent as she believed. Tiamat asks Majesty why she believed a witch would be able to comprehend how the elves would actually act, comparing it to a dragon's own inability to understand the concept of giving away something for nothing.
  • Golem: Is capable of creating these and uses one in Feanor's likeness to frame him as part of her plans.
  • Taken for Granite: Majesty turns her to stone.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Is fairly skilled at this.

An infamous dragon, known for being the most vile of his race. He was permanently exiled by his dragon goddess mother, Tiamat, for murdering a few fellow dragons and their unhatched children.
  • A Pupil of Mine Until He Turned to Evil: He was one of Spike's first students, if not the first (according to Word of God)... and ultimately became one of the worst dragons to ever live.
  • Bling of War: He's so obsessed with his possessions that he embedded his hoard into his scales to keep it with him at all time.
  • Death by Materialism: Heathspike uses his teleportation breath to send part of Smaug's 'diamond waistcoat' as he calls it (his entire hoard embedded into his scales) falling into the ocean. Greedy brute that he is, Smaug dives in after it and desperately tries to get it back, allowing Heathspike to gain the upperhand and kill him due to the rest of his hoard weighing him down severely.
  • Defeat Equals Explosion: Heathspike kills him by breathing Rainbow of Darkness empowered fire down his throat until he exploded with the force of a volcano erupting.
  • Greed: He was greedy by dragon standards. He was so much this trope that he performed atrocities that caused Tiamat to banish him.
  • Hostage For Macguffin: Attempts this with Heathspike's last surviving egg for the Rainbow of Darkness. Heathspike caved... but Smaug wanted to fight for it and petrified it anyway.
  • Immortality Seeker: It's implied he desired Heathspike's Rainbow of Darkness for the immortality it comes with, because he was terrified of losing his possessions when he died.
  • It's All About Me: The only thing Smaug cares about is himself.
  • Persona Non Grata: Tiamat banished him after he murdered two other dragons in their sleep when he couldn't beat them in a challenge for their hoard, then smashed their eggs for spite. Worth noting is due to considering her entire species her hoard, Tiamat banishing one of her dragons is an exceedingly rare occurrence, if not exclusive to him.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Part of what got him banished: he killed two other dragons in their sleep then slaughtered their helpless unhatched children. He also slaughtered Heathspike's unhatched clutch except for one egg which he petrified.


  • A God Am I: Intentionally written as a megalomaniac, and during his fight with Majesty he really shows this side of her personality.
    Thunderstorm: You really thought you could defeat me?! I am the master of weather! I'm the clouds! I'm the winds! I'm the rain! I am the chosen of the skies! I AM THE SKIES!
  • Arc Villain: The third one of Majesty's origins story, being responsible for the drought in Meadowville and then kidnaps Spike and holds him hostage to force Majesty not to act against him.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Is the leader of his rebellion, and one of the few enemies who actually managed to give Majesty a challenge due to his total mastery of Pegasi magic.
  • Fantastic Racism: Loathes humans for the town of Redwall enslaving him and his herd and intends to drive out the town of Meadowville to take it for his own on the grounds humans 'can't be trusted'.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Acts rather polite and friendly, but is a brutal vengeance crazed megalomaniac who'd murder a child or wipe out an entire innocent settlement to get his way.
  • Freudian Excuse: Is from a city that refused to see the pegasi as anything but beasts of burden despite being clearly sapient and enslaved them. As a result, he hates humans no matter who they are.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a scar running over his eye and part of his ear was bitten off.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: The humans of Redwall's treatment of the pegasi, and anyone who actually sympathized and treated them like people for that matter, was genuinely atrocious and horrid, so it's hard to blame him for leading a brutal rebellion to liberate his people and wanting revenge. It's taking that same mentality and applying it to all humans that ultimately leads to him becoming a villain himself.
  • Love Redeems: After his defeat, he ultimately met and fell in love with a mare named Lightning Strike who he married. While he lied about his past and was still rather ruthless, he is notably more selfless and some of his more heroic nature starts to resurface. Since his new home does trade with humans, it also seems he may have let go of some of his Fantastic Racism. He ultimately ends up performing a Heroic Sacrifice to save them from a dragon, and while not clear, even tries to tell Strike's the truth in his dying moments.
  • Redemption Equals Death: A latter Loose Canon story reveals he eventually met a village, and while he did lie about his past, he still became a better person as a result and ultimately dies a Heroic Sacrifice protecting everyone from a dragon.
  • Revenge Before Reason: He took revenge on the city of Redwall for enslaving the now sapient pegasi in horrid conditions who certainly deserved it, but extends his belief to all humans, not just the ones who actually hurt him and his herd.
  • Sensor Character: His total mastery of Pegasi magic lets him sense everything around him to an extremely precise degree, enough that unicorn teleportation can't fool him. Majesty has to find spells to get around it before she can bring him down.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Starts to fall apart after Firefly turns on him. When Majesty finally brings him down, he's reduced to ranting and raving.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Threatens to murder Spike to keep Majesty in line.

    The Sea Wizard 
An elven magic user who worked for Tirek.
  • Arc Villain: The fourth one of Majesty's origin story.
  • Didn't See That Coming: His plan is ultimately derailed by King Neptune being familiar with Majesty's exploits and trusting her because of them, something he had no idea about when he tried to let Neptune dispose of her for him.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: His Evil Plan is ultimately thwarted by the Power of Trust Majesty has built up in others, and also the fact neither side he attempted to pit against each other are as trigger happy or unreasonable as he expected. He's also blindsided by Bruduk ratting him out the moment Majesty cuts off his surveillance, believing he was too frightened into submission to do so.
  • Fantastic Racism: Towards non-elves, setting him a part from most elves in the story who lack this superiority complex.
  • The Heavy: Technically speaking, he's a minion of Tirek, but as Tirek isn't present, he's the main villain.
  • I Have Your Wife: How he gets Bruduk to do his bidding.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: Quickly realizes he doesn't stand a chance against Majesty and forces her into a Sadistic Choice to let him escape.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Keeps his hostages alive to use as a bargaining chip on the off-chance he's discovered (which was a bright move on his part, saving him from Majesty's wrath), as well as the fact Tirek might want a tribute and a large number of slaves would be a good one.
  • Sadistic Choice: Forces Majesty to choose rescuing his hostages or capturing him. She chooses the former and he escaped, but she manages to warp away his magic mirror while leaving.
  • Sinister Surveillance: Has a magic mirror that allows him to see whatever he pleases. However, Majesty manages to block its gaze and surprise him before he realizes what's going on as soon as she becomes aware of it. Majesty makes sure to teleport it away to screw him over one last time.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Believes himself to be one of Tirek's Co-Dragons and an extremely big deal. While he is very powerful and dangerous, Tirek ultimately doesn't even remember who he is, only gave him the mission to amuse himself then forgot about it, and barely acknowledges his existence.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: Manages to escape with his life, and as in the comics, he swears revenge on Majesty for thwarting him.
  • War for Fun and Profit: Tried to manipulate a war between King Neptune and the humans for Lord Tirek.


How well does it match the trope?
