  • The Ageless: Like all G3 characters.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Happens just before her death.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: In a similar fashion to Pinkie Pie, it's why they're best friends.
  • Composite Character: She's comprised of three ponies: Clover, her husband Dandy, and their son Lucky Bloom.
  • Go Out with a Smile: Dies smiling because she managed to help save Pinkie and they got to sing together one last time.
  • The Klutz: Was quite clumsy and klutzy.
  • Mortal Wound Reveal: Was mortally wounded in the fall she and Pinkie Pie took down a canyon wall before their fight with Luna. After Luna has a change of heart and chooses to spare her, she dies from it.
  • Posthumous Character: Died at the end of G3, though she also reincarnated into Twilight.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Like all members of the G3 universe was biologically immortal and far older than she appeared.
  • Reincarnation: Possibly Twilight is hers, the story has yet to explain if Twilight is truly her reincarnation or simply the being resulting in a Fusion Dance between her spirit and G1 Twilight's shadow. Either way, she lives on in Twilight somehow.
    • It's later revealed that Twilight is the reincarnation of Minty's Light while her Shadow will eventually reincarnate as a separate pony. In the Dark World, this takes the form of Minty Pie, the descendant of one of Octavia's descendants and Applebloom.
  • Retgone: Was marked for this, but ultimately was saved by Pinkie.
  • Super OCD: Has this and is where Twilight Sparkle got it.

    Kenbroath Gillspotten Hearthspike "Spike" 
Voiced by: William Johnson

  • Adaptational Badass: Grew into one trying to survive the end of his world.
  • The Ageless: Like all G3 characters.
  • Legacy Character: Is the descendant of the original G1 Spike. His G4 timeline Reincarnation is the present Spike's ancestor.
  • Posthumous Character: Died at the end of G3, though she also reincarnated into Twilight.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Like all members of the G3 universe was biologically immortal and far older than he appeared. Though in his case that was also partially due to being a dragon.
  • Took a Level in Badass
  • Undying Loyalty: To Wysteria. Unfortunately, this causes him to climb up the pipe she was impaled on in a futile attempt to save her, allowing Strife to kill him to.

  • The Ageless: Like all G3 characters.
  • The Bard: What she would have been in G4 if she'd reincarnated. She sacrificed it to save Pinkie's existence.
  • The Chosen One: She was one of those chosen to survive into the new timeline, but she rejected this in favor of saving her friend.
  • Dance Battler: How Pinkie believes she delayed Anarchy. In reality, it was far more brutal, desperate and improvised.
  • Deader Than Dead: Irretrievably gone. As stated by the one who accidentally Ret-Gone'd her, he really can't undo it. Her shadow ultimately fuses with G4 Sweetie Belle, so she at least partially reincarnates in a way.
  • The Determinator: Her injuries got worse and worse in the process of defending Pinky, but she never, ever gave it up.
  • Famous Last Words: Subverted, her voice was one of the first things erased. So far as Pinky could tell, it was supposed to be a farewell song.
  • Final Death: It is indeed very final, and its ramifications include the effects of this trope, but it's not death... See the Ret-Gone entry below.
  • Fusion Dance:
    • Formed from the Dazzlings from Rainbow Rocks, who had two more members at the time.
    • Her Shadow ultimately ends up merging with Sweetie Belle.
  • Heroic Resolve: Anarchy's expressed intent to erase Pinky set her into Determinator mode.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sacrificed every trace of her existence in all timelines, implicitly annihilating her own mind and soul, just to buy her condemned friend a few moments.
  • Heroic Safe Mode: In contrast to Pinky's Heroic BSoD, Starsong immediately vowed to defend everyone, no matter the cost, after seeing Anarchy erase Toola-Roola.
  • The Paragon: Ends up serving as one to Pinkie, inspiring her to rescue Minty.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Like all members of the G3 universe was biologically immortal and far older than she appeared.
  • Reincarnation: Fuses with Sweetie Belle, making Sweetie one to her. Who got her Light of Existence is currently unknown.
  • Ret-Gone:
    • This is her fate, to have never existed, and unlike those who were meant to be erased, to never be able to exist again in any way, shape, or form. To this, no character, other than resident fourth-wall-breaker Pinkie, has ever said her name, if they even can say those words. Even in the timeline where her world was not Ret-Gone'd, she is still missing... The only reason why this trope entry exists is because Pinkie holds on to a blurred memory/dream of her.
    • Although in a recent chapter one version of Nightmare Granfallon managed to bring her back by dragging her Shadow out of nothingness and splitting her own soul to give her Light. Although he has declared it non-canon, it was still written by Alex... This gives hope to some that she is not gone forever.
  • Screw Destiny: This is where Pinkie got it from, the one who defied her own destiny to save others from it.
  • Spanner in the Works: Her sacrifice was the only permanent deviation in the joint Alicorn-Draconequus creation of G4 Equestria, which otherwise wouldn't have included Pinkie or Minty (now Twilight).
  • Taking the Bullet: Just as Anarchy was about to make contact with Pinky to Ret-Gone her, she dived at him to take the blow instead.
  • What You Are in the Dark: Despite knowing that no one would ever know who she was nor the sacrifice she would have to make, she still chose to save Pinky Pie without hesitation.

    Rainbow Dash (G3) 

  • The Ageless: Like all G3 characters.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Dive bombing Discord before he could start 'playing' with the Breezies again.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Magnificent".
    • Also "dashing" and "darling", as in canon.
  • The Fashionista: Loves making new designs (which is apparently what made her unique enough to not be on the 'delete' list). It's hinted that somehow a part of her also ended up inside Rarity and is the part of why she's this trope.
  • Fighting from the Inside: After merging with the Shadow of G1 Firefly (basically Firefly's Shadow Archetype), she fights back and forces her personality traits to reappear when the merge completes.
  • Fusion Dance: Ends up merging with G1 Firefly to become G4 Rainbow Dash.
  • Generation Xerox: Inverted, as Rarity is basically one of her personality wise (and may have part of her).
  • Ignorant of Their Own Ignorance: Anything she didn't know about Rainbows, she passed off as 'things ponies were not meant to know. She was naturally shocked and humbled to find out Unicorns made them. However, to her credit, she did start learning as much as she could about them.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Like all members of the G3 universe was biologically immortal and far older than she appeared.
  • Reincarnation: Is one of a unicorn named Prism Rush from the Golden Age. Naturally, G4 Rainbow is hers.
  • Undying Loyalty: Is the source of the present Rainbow Dash's due to her desire to protect her friends during the apocalypse.


Razzaroo/Meadowlark/ Not-Twilight/Princess Jiniri

  • Adaptational Badass: Grew into one trying to survive the end of her world.
  • The Ageless: Like all G3 characters.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Asks Rainbow Dash / Nightmare Manacle several of these to help her figure out what's going on in the fake Ponyville.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Was in line for Magic, but Twilight passed her up after absorbing Eclipse. However, she ended up becoming a candidate for the Concept of Wishes and Miracles. Her Dark World self at least becomes that.
  • Badass Bookworm: Keeps recording G3's history, even as the timeline unravels around her. Takes it Up to Eleven when she fights Twilight: Razzaroo uses her books as the medium for her 'Memory Magic'.
  • Bonus Boss: For the Dark World Timeline.
  • The Chosen One: Was being groomed for the position of The Magician before Twilight overtook her.
  • Last of His Kind: Is the last original G3 pony (even Pinkie Pie was reformatted for G3.5) after the others were either returned to the source or altered for the G4 timeline.
  • Make a Wish: Is now on the path of becoming the goddess of this trope. At least her Dark World self eventually does.
  • No-Sell: When Twilight tries the Failsafe spell on her, after using it successfully against Nightmare Eclipse multiple times during their battle, it doesn't work.
  • Physical God:
    • Has just about reached this point when Twilight fights her.
    • Later becomes a "Candidate Concept" of Wishes and Miracles, which allowed her to sneak into the Lotus-Eater Machine Nightmare Whisper had created and disguise herself as Twilight. Her Dark World self succeeds.
  • Posthumous Character: Sort of.
  • Power Copying: Her 'Memory Magic' lets her do this.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Like all G3 ponies. Even more so by the time Twilight comes across her.
  • The Reveal: She was the 'Twilight' who had been in Rainbow Dash's fake Ponyville during the finale arc.
  • Took a Level in Badass
  • Walking Spoiler: Her role in the "fake Ponyville" part of the finale arc.


  • Came Back Strong: Yearling, who now possesses her Light of Existence, fuses with her Shadow of Existence, essentially recreating her original soul and causing Puzzlemint to be reborn as the real Daring Do.
  • Pet the Dog: Strife actually apologized to her, as she liked Puzzlemint's desire to survive and learn, and even shows rage that G3!Applejack was on the 'keep' list.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Like all members of the G3 universe was biologically immortal and far older than she appeared.
  • Reincarnation: It turns out that AK Yearling got her Light of Existence after it got sent back to Fauna Luster. She ultimately fuses with Yearling, being reborn as a real life Daring Do.


Abra-Ca-Dabra/Trixie Lulamoon Mid-summernight

  • The Ageless: Like all the G3 characters.
  • Composite Character: She was merged with G1's Magic Star to become the Great and Powerful Trixie.
  • Foreshadowing: Her favorite Halloween costume is to dress up like a witch like Trixie. She even describes herself as a great and powerful witch pony. She also love storytelling.
  • Flat Character: In Destruction's opinion anyway:
    "You're a one-note pony, a holiday pony. You're kept in a box three hundred and sixty-four days out of the year. You can't fit into the new world. You're a gimmick best left forgotten. To sum up: We can't let a cliche holiday-themed character like you in, that would be just embarrassing!"
  • Fusion Dance: Ends up fusing with G1's Magic Star, an Earth pony, to become Trixie.
  • Halloween Episode: She was passionately focused on the holiday, to the point where she decorated her house to look like a Haunted House and had no real interests beyond it.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Abra gives up her own existence to fuse with Magic Star and save Twilight Sparkle from being destroyed before her birth by Destruction.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Again, like everyone else in G3.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Well, by the standards of the G3 world, anyway.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Destruction gives her one to justify why he sees her as a Flat Character, as shown above.
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: Her favorite Halloween costume. It makes sense given that she eventually becomes Trixie.

    Triple Treat 

    Fizzy Pop 

  • Break the Cutie: The things she finds out from Morning Star and D__t do this to her, though she recovers somewhat.
  • Fusion Dance: Fuses with G1 Starflower's Shadow of Existence to become Tempest Shadow.
  • Reincarnation: Is one of Skyrocket from the Tales world. Tempest Shadow is one of her.


How well does it match the trope?
