Tales!Mane Seven

    Starlight Angel 

Starlight Angel / Star Maker

Voiced by: Rachel Romero

  • Adaptational Badass: The canonical Starlight was obviously not a powerful Angel of Death. She's tough enough to take on Flutternice, Dark World Nightmare Whisper's Dragon and skilled enough to, alongside Zecora, defeat her.
  • The Atoner: Part of why she becomes an Angel of Death: to atone for her role in the destruction of the world.
  • Berserk Button: Do not confuse her with Starlight Glimmer just because of their names. Even the description in Starlight Glimmer's Origins Episode has her hijack it by complaining that thanks to the cult leader, the name "Starlight" will only bring Starlight Glimmer to mind instead of her. When giving up her reaper status, she even immediately says that she's not Starlight Glimmer of Our Town after shedding her reaper wings.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Gives up her reaper status in the main timeline to help rescue the interviewers and Shining Armor from Nightmare Manacle. It doesn't slow her down much.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has her moments.
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: Like Mortis himself, she's still a nice pony and pleasant in her greetings.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: She has black angel wings, though Dark Is Not Evil and she's still her kind self.
  • The Grim Reaper: Gets a job working for Mortis as an Angel of Death, greeting ponies fresh to the afterlife. She's cameoed in this role in a few scenes in the main series since.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the revised timeline caused by Applebloom's Cosmic Retcon, she decided to give one last look at the wish spell to make sure...and saw it starting to backfire before it actually did and sent out a warning. She then stayed behind when she could have escaped with Rosy to delay it as long as she could, being killed in the explosion but saving many lives.
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": Is called Starlight Angel in many of her appearances as an Angel of Death, seemingly at first to avoid confusion with Starlight Glimmer. Tempest Shadow's Origins chapter reveals that her last name really is Angel.
  • Love Hurts: Has had her heart broken multiple times by stallions, to the point one of her wishes was a world without stallions, thus why the G3 world had none. She does not take finding this out well.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Her reaction to the disaster and the flaws in the spell and thus the G3 World.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Helped organize Bright Eyes' world transforming spell plan into a viable option.
  • Posthumous Character: Is killed in the explosion, thus she's this in the 'Nightmare' sections. Even her own.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Becoming an Angel of Death comes with getting black wings.
  • Our Angels Are Different: Becomes an Angel of Death working for Mortis.
  • The Scapegoat: As the face of the world transforming spell plan, she more than any of the others became this in the altered timeline. Somewhat lessened in the post Cosmic Retcon timeline, as while she still got some of this, she performed a Heroic Sacrifice to save lives in that timeline and thus opinions are more divided.
  • Transformation Sequence: Gets one when she reveals her true identity during the Nightmare Ponyville final battle.

    Saint Sweetheart 

Saint Sweetheart / G3 Applejack

Voiced by: TBA

  • Famed In-Story: Spends her life after the disaster practicing herbal medicine and curing ponies out of the good of her heart, even ultimately enabling the destruction of what amounts to a supercharged, magically mutated version of The Black Death posthumously. The former make her a local legend in the area, the latter? Earns her the title of 'the White Saint of Meadowsweet Farm' and a place in history that managed to survive both the Age of the Three Tribes and Discord's reign.
  • Family Theme Naming: Despite being the Odd Name Out among her sisters (being the only one that's not a food), she's this with her children Brave Heart, Wild Heart, Pure Heart, and Lion Heart.
  • Good Parents: A loving mother to her four children.
  • Happily Married: To Teddy.
  • Healing Hands: Legend says she had these due to her status as a Saint, but actually didn't. That is until Applebloom's Cosmic Retcon made the Rumor that had made it real stick, causing her to have gained them when mutated by the blast, allowing her to save her sister Cream from death.
  • Humble Hero: Despite all the good she did, she didn't care she'd become a local legend or was highly praised for it, she just genuinely wanted to help ponies any way she could. When she finds out about being posthumously declared a Saint, Teddy has to convince her she deserves it.
  • Legacy Character: Nurse Red Heart is one of her many descendants and gets her new Healing Hands powers post Cosmic Retcon.
  • Lucky My Shield Will Protect Me: As a temporary Reaper, this is her weapon.
  • Mutants: Applebloom's Cosmic Retcon to make her Healing Hands ability permanent gave her being mutated by the blast to justify it.
  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the story starts due to living thousands of years ago.
  • Selfless Wish: Unlike many people, she didn't have a wish for herself during the G3 revision, instead wishing for a better world for those around her. Unfortunately, her wish that Applejack I will enjoy the new world is only partially granted by her becoming G3 Applejack (and Strife later merging G1 Applejack's Shadow of Existence with her to create G4 Applejack).
  • Superpowerful Genetics: After her mutation via the disaster, it became a genetic power and remains in their bloodline.

    Melody 

Melody / Princess Rarity

Voiced by: TBA

  • Cool Big Sis: Her sisters are members of her band's crew and they get along well with her. She even takes a moment to thank them for helping make her recent tour successful. She remains thus even after the apocalypse
  • Good Parent: For her children, who both love her.
  • Happily Married: It's said she still loved her husband, Ace, even after being rendered mute. When we actually see it, they're a little distant, but seem happy in their marriage, and she caused him to become a much nicer person.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: As a Reaper she has a sword that can produce sonic attacks.
  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the main story starts due to living thousands of years ago.
  • Riches to Rags: Was a famous, wealthy rock star... then the apocalypse happened, leaving her with nothing, having to hide from the world for her own safety, and mute.
  • The Rock Star: Has gotten her childhood dream of becoming one, she and the Rockin' Beats being quite famous world over. However, she admits it's not what she thought it'd be.
  • The Scapegoat: Like Starlight, she's made into this by angry ponies due to the Rockin' Beats support of the spell. Because of this, she and her family basically have to live as hermits.
  • The Speechless: The explosion rendered her mute. This is problematic, as her little sisters think she's brain-damaged until she finally manages to communicate otherwise. Being able to speak again is a big tip off to her that she's dead when meeting Starlight and her other dead friends in the afterlife.

    Bright Eyes 

Bright Eyes / Zipzee

Voiced by: TBA

  • Adaptational Badass: Justified: Lancer and family actively taught her swordfighting to protect herself. Comes in handy against Cruel Eyes/D___t and when the Tales 7 show up for Nightmare Ponyville.
  • Amnesiacs Are Innocent:
    • Losing her memory somehow caused her to lose her cutie mark. It comes back when her memories are restored.
    • In a more literal fashion, she was protected from those looking for revenge on the ones responsible for the project by the fact the Bright Eyes they hated was 'gone' and the 'new' Bright Eyes was innocent.
  • Amnesiac Dissonance:
    • While not incredibly different, much of Bright Eyes' ego and some of her jerkish tendencies aren't present in her post amnesia self. She keeps the Character Development even after her memory is restored.
    • 'Cruel Eyes' tried to invoke this by trying to make Bright Eyes believe her former self was a monster deep down. Bright Eyes doesn't fall for it.
  • The Atoner: Despite having lost her memory, she still feels guilt over her role in causing The Day as she pieces together the facts via Sherlock Scan. After she regains her memories, she manages to overcome her guilt, but still makes every effort she can to make up for what she did.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: While she gradually unlocks her old memories, some of what she figures out about her past is simply through logical observations and analysis of those around her.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: Has one with D___t's Shadow when he tries to absorb her soul and concept.
  • Breaking the Fellowship: While she's not the cause, and they do reunite, she's the one who notices best that the G2 Mane Case has drifted apart.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: She had a dream that seemed to be of the battle with Nightmare Moon, something that wouldn't happen for several thousand years. It's later implied it was actually not only Not A Dream, but happened while Dark World!Twilight summoned them to the present to defeat Nightmare Eclipse.
  • Family Theme Naming: With her father Sharp Eyes, and children Night Eyes and Keen Eyes.
  • Good Parent: Seems to be one to Night Eyes and Keen Eyes.
  • Happily Married: To Lancer, even after losing her memories.
  • Heroic BSoD: Her reaction to Paradise Estate's fantastic occupants was to have an existential crisis until Wind Whistler snapped her out of it.
  • I Choose to Stay: As Zipzee, she chooses to remain behind with Rainbow Dash rather than Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence and go to Pony Heaven with the other Breezies. This results in her merging with Posey's Shadow and becoming Fluttershy.
  • Irony: Despite going into a Heroic BSoD when she discovered the existence of magic, she's the only one of the G2 mane cast who seemed to have bothered learning Earth Pony magic.
  • The Leader: As Zipzee, she is essentially the leader of the Breezies, even if they largely operate as a group.
  • The Magic Comes Back: Doesn't take this happening well at first, but manages to adjust. She's also the primary one responsible for the return of Earth Pony magic.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: She was the one who had the idea for the world transforming spell, which resulted in a Class X-4 Apocalypse in one timeline and a Class 2 in another, as well as scattering the Rainbow of Light.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: When she mortally wounds D___t's Shadow, she defies Once Is Not Enough and makes sure to hit him with two more killing blows in a row to make sure he stays Deader Than Dead.
  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the main story starts due to living thousands of years ago.
  • Sherlock Scan: How she manages to figure out certain things about her past, simply by paying attention to the details around her.
  • Screaming Birth: The first memory she regains is the birth of her daughter. It involved a lot of screaming and cussing.
  • "Shut Up" Kiss: Gives one to Lancer after he's so elated to discover she's regained her memories he can't stop rambling about it.
  • Was It All a Lie?: Basically asks this about the world in general after learning about the existence of magic. Wind Whistler answers that no, it wasn't, there was more to learn.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Has a more idealistic outlook, despite being more logical.
  • "World of Cardboard" Speech: During her Battle in the Center of the Mind with Cruel Eyes/D___t's Shadow, she realizes that they're in her mind and thus she needs to stop letting him make the rules and because of that, the fear she's had of him the entire time is no longer needed. She instantly uses the control over her Mental World this gives her to manipulate her weapon to create an opening to finish him off.
    Bright Eyes: And I'm an idiot! I've been letting YOU set the rules and what goes and what doesn't here. You've had me so caught up in this mess I hadn't thought this through! This is all in MY head? MY mind? MY soul? That means I can do anything I WANT! And I've always had with me the lance that pierces the darkness! And now that I've realized that, I've got no reason to be afraid of you anymore!

    Patch 

Patch/Skywishes

Voiced by: TBA

  • Action Girl: Is tasked by the Moochick with recovering the seven pieces of the Rainbow Of Light and proceeds to do so, fighting various people misusing them and Grogar (who remember, in this canon is a Darkseid expy!) to recover them and succeeded.
  • Adaptational Badass: Probably the most out of all of them, as she becomes an Evil Overlord slaying wandering hero.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Due to the journey she goes on, she ends up being tough enough to fight a dragon with only a sword. Starlight even calls her an amazon when she's called as a witness at the trial for her soul. If nothing else, Film Critique (unfortunately) considered her beautiful enough to put in his harem.
  • Badass Normal: Does everything she does despite being a normal Earth Pony. The only 'power' she has is her life being extended by the Rainbow Fragments, and that doesn't much help in combat.
  • Badass Boast: Has apparently made enough of these in the afterlife that Bright Eyes is sick of hearing them.
  • Battle Couple: With Buddy for awhile before he retired from the quest to raise their foal in safety.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Still remains a pretty nice pony throughout it all, but after Film Critique brainwashes her into a slave and is heavily implied to have raped her repeatedly while she was in that state, having done the same to who knows how many mares. Patch shoots him in the leg, arms his former harem with swords, and leaves him in a room alone with them. She's also responsible for several other Evil Overlords being killed.
  • The Chosen One: Was unknowingly the chosen champion of Puerilis, the Fool Alicorn.
  • Cool Sword:
    • Squire's sword, her Weapon of Choice once she finds it.
    • Her Reaper weapon is a sword, and it can turn into a different one that has freezing abilities...and also fire ones, as the real ability seems to be heat transference.
  • Do with Him as You Will: Does this several times to various tyrants, most notably Film Critique.
    Patch: I know I'm making a habit of this sort of thing, but karma is as karma does.
  • Elemental Weapon: Her sword as a Reaper can freeze and burn things.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: As a Reaper.
  • Famed In-Story: Her habit of overthrowing Evil Overlords earns her a rather legendary status.
  • Flaming Sword: Double Subverted. She says she wanted one but Bright Eyes pointed out it wouldn't be good against dragons...then reveals she was lying about that and it can do ice and fire.
  • Future Badass: By the context of the Tales world.
  • Happily Married: To Buddy.
  • Heroic BSoD: Goes into one after the explosion. Even after the Moochick snaps her out of it, she never really recovers until after her death, unable to accept her friends have died unless direct evidence is staring her in the face, at which point she breaks down crying.
  • Legendary Weapon: Finds Squire's sword during her confrontation with Film Critique. She uses it as her Weapon of Choice from then on.
  • The Magic Comes Back: Managed to bring this about singlehoofedly by finding Paradise Estates.
  • The Munchausen: Apparently is this in the afterlife about her adventures, to the point Bright Eyes is kinda sick of it.
  • Never Live It Down: In-Universe, the time she ate poison mushrooms. At least some of her friends thought she'd eaten them again when she told them about Paradise Estate.
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently, she once ate some poison mushrooms, something the others thought she had done again when she first told them about Paradise Estate. It also lead to her getting help from Starlight with problems she had reading.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has one when ringing the magic bell that's Grogar's one weakness has no effect.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Only a few of her many adventures are seen onscreen, but she's had a fair number more of them than we see.
  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the main story starts due to living thousands of years ago.
  • Rape and Revenge: Was raped repeatedly (along with many other unfortunate mares) by Film Critique while under the power of his Rainbow Shard. When she's finally freed, she shoots him in the leg and leaves him to his Karmic Death at the hooves of his now freed harem.
  • Really 700 Years Old: The Rainbow pieces she went about finding extended her life, but by how much is unknown except it was considerably longer than most ponies would normally live. It didn't end aging for her altogether, but she still looked younger than she really was.
  • Sword over Head: Does this to Basil to make him declare her his master, thus completing Squire's Unfinished Business.
  • The Storyteller: Apparently loves talking about her adventures in Heaven to the point Bright Eyes is tired of it.
  • These Hands Have Killed: Had this reaction to the first time she had to kill in self defense.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Went from the class clown to an Action Girl.
  • Trauma Button: When Dandy touches her in a friendly greeting, she screams for him not to touch her. Given Film Critique's treatment of her, it's little surprise.
  • True Companions: Naturally with the other of the mane seven, even after the apocalypse, but it's part of her driving force in two timelines. She's also this with Brightglow.

    Clover 

Clover/Minty


  • Always Someone Better: Feels this way about her older sister Meadowlark to a degree, but still loves her.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: As The Master (no, not that one) found out.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Notes that thanks to her Special Talent for luck, these always seem to show up when she's in trouble.
  • Born Lucky: Which comes in handy after the apocalypse.
    • In the Blood: It turns out to be a unique trait inherited from her ancestor Rota Fortuna.
  • Blessed with Suck/Cursed with Awesome: Views her own luck cutie mark to be such. On the one hand, she can really hit hard with some bad luck like trying to get rid of a teapot. On the other hand, she can be extremely lucky such as winning free tickets to a concert.
  • Cowardly Lion: Hardly the bravest mare in the world, but more than able to step up if a problem arises.
  • Foreshadowing: Several events of her life were practically foreshadowing what would happen when she would become Twilight Sparkle including alternate versions of The Ticket Master and A Canterlot Wedding.
  • Famous Ancestor: None other than the Alicorn Goddess of Fate, Rota Fortuna.
  • Fusion Dance: Ended up merging with Dandy and their son to become G3 Minty.
  • Happily Married: To Dandy.
  • Imaginary Friend: She has one. It's Pinkie Pie!
  • I Just Want to Have Friends
  • The Klutz: As in canon, she's rather clumsy, though was able to become a professional ballerina despite this.
  • Legacy Character: One of her descendants is Clover the Clever.
  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the main story starts, due to living thousands of years ago.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to the Master after pinning him down.
  • Survivor's Guilt: The fact she didn't lose any of her family in the apocalypse results in this.
  • Winds of Destiny, Change: Turns out her Special Talent is actually subconsciously seeing the paths of fate and making choices to lead down the luckiest path. She inherited it from her divine ancestor, Rota Fortuna.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Tells Shady this in regards to Shady's belief that she's a coward.

    Bon Bon 

Bon Bon / Sweetberry


  • Beware the Nice Ones
  • Big Eater: Is this, though her modeling career does make her cut down on it.
  • Break the Cutie: An Class 2 Apocalypse and the deaths of many of your closest friends tends to do that to a pony. She carries on, but you can tell it hurt her. Ironically, she ended up one of the best off of her friends and had the most normal life.
  • Happily Married: To Cookie.
  • Legacy Character: Is the current Bon Bon's Ancestor.
  • Mama Bear: Do not hurt her niece/adopted daughter.
  • Humble Hero: Her journal is the shortest of her friends, implying she had much less to say about herself than her friends.
  • The Pen Is Mightier: Subverted. When her reaper weapon turns into a pen, Rainbow Dash assumes this trope is in effect, but it's just a normal pen.
  • Promoted to Parent: Has to raise her own niece After the End in the second timeline when her sister is killed in the blast.
  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the main story starts due to living thousands of years ago.
  • There Are No Therapists: Subverted, in that while she's not formally one, she served as one for Eclipse's reformed Nightmares, specifically Rainbow Dash.

  • Good Parents: To his and Melody's children.

  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Tra La La was taken directly to Pony Heaven at the end of G3.
  • Family Theme Naming: His parents are named Fencer and Rapier, which are types of swords.
  • Happily Married: To Bright Eyes. Even after her memory loss, he still does all he can to make sure she's happy.

  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the main story starts due to living thousands of years ago.
  • Spoiled Sweet: Was rich, and even manages to keep his family's property post-doomsday, but is one of the most fundamentally good ponies you'll find.

    Sweet Music 
Voiced By: TBA

  • Badass Adorable: Beat up three colts who were beating up Spell Circle by herself as a filly.
  • Break the Cutie: Thanks to a Hydra and Sharp Spear.
  • Groin Attack: Gives one to one of the bullies she protect Spell Circle from.

  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the main story starts due to living thousands of years ago.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Spell Circle, due to Fantastic Racism. While he's alive, things go fine once they're married... but then he dies and things go downhill.

Friends and Allies

    Brightglow 

Brightglow / Cadence

Voiced by: Jaime Hatheway

  • Action Girl: She is Patch's partner after all.
  • Amnesiac God: Was Cadence as a mortal.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Shows up to save Patch from falling to her death during the fight with Basil.
  • Guardian Angel: How she describes herself in relation to Patch, having been protecting her for a long time. It's a tad more true than she realized.
  • It's All My Fault: Was the one who lead Patch to Paradise Estate in the first place, and blames herself for the end result of it all. Patch is quick to snap her out of it.
  • Light 'em Up: Glows constantly anyway, but able to generate a massive flash of light if need be.
  • Not-So-Imaginary Friend: She and Patch were this to each other up until they finally reunited, as none of their respective friends had seen the other one. Her other imaginary friends, the other ponies with her saving Patch, were actually several of her siblings guiding her through avatars. Applebloom's Cosmic Retcon makes them her flesh and blood sisters.
  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the main story starts due to living thousands of years ago but survived as Cadence.
  • Really 700 Years Old: At least as old as Patch ended up being. It's not explained rather the Rainbow Shards extended her life as well or if it was the result of her being Cadence and not knowing it.
  • True Companions: With Patch.

    Squire 

  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Is dead and appears as a spirit trying to complete his Unfinished Business with Patch's help. She succeeds and he passes on to Heaven.
  • Posthumous Character: Like in the G2 series, he's long dead and now a ghost.
  • Spirit Advisor: Gives Patch the advice needed to defeat Basil and helps guide her sword to hit where it's needed. It's also implied that he was with her the entire time.
  • Take Up My Sword: Patch already had his sword, but Squire clearly agrees with her possessing it.
  • Unfinished Business: Still pursues Basil after death until Patch completes his quest, allowing him to finally rest in peace.

    Logan 

  • Ascended Extra: In the original series, he only appeared in one episode and wasn't seen again. In this one, he's a recurring character who repeatedly rescued members of the group and proved himself worthy of one of the shards of the Rainbow of Light.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Rescued both Bright Eyes and Clover's families from mutants born from the blast using the Yellow Shard.
  • Fluffy Tamer: The Yellow Shard makes him this.
  • Friend to All Living Things: The Yellow Shard enables him to do this.
  • Hero of Another Story: Is shown to be using the Yellow Shard to protect others and looking for his parents which he manages to do, and according to Luna may have done so all his life, but we only see him twice.
  • Light Is Good: Unlike the psychos that Patch ended up facing off with, he used the yellow Shard of the Rainbow of Light to protect people from mutants born from the blast.
  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the main story starts due to living thousands of years ago.
  • Telepathy: At least with animals, as his second appearance shows him using his Yellow Shard to telepathically calm down a Mantacore to save Clover's family from it.
  • Took a Level in Badass: He got his hooves on one of the Shards of the Rainbow of Light, allowing him to communicate with animals, including the mutants born from the blast. Second time we see him he can do this telepathically.

  • Odd Friendship: With the moon due to learning to speak to the stars and celestial bodies from Bright Glow and her sisters.

  • Legacy Character: Is a descendant of G1 Star Hopper.

  • Uneven Hybrid: Unlike her fellow Sparkle Ponies, she's descended from another hybrid, meaning she's more Celestial Pony than Unicorn, if only slightly.

  • Half-Human Hybrid: Half Pegasus half Celestial Pony.

    The Glow Sisters 

Copper Glow / Toola Roola, Silver Glow / G3 Silver Glow, Golden Glow / Crystal Lace, and Diamond Glow / Glitterbelle


  • Blessed with Suck: Seem to feel this way about their powers to an extent, in part due to being Overshadowed by Awesome by the wish spell. Turns around when they use them to save ponies from the disaster.
  • Family Theme Naming: They're all named after a beautiful material followed by the name glow.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: They all wish to be normal ponies in the wish spell, since they feel their powers are Blessed with Suck.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: End up being this by the wish spell, with the media largely ignoring them despite being an amazing feat of magic and science. It clearly makes them feel miserable.
  • Reincarnation: Apple Bloom, Silver Spoon, Golden Tiara, and Diamond Tiara are theirs.
  • Taking the Bullet: Absorb the castle on the Isle of Ponies' explosion to shield Skyrocket's family and friends and others from the blast. Their wings get badly cracked, but that they managed to do so adds credence to Morning Star's belief they're Ultimate Lifeform level beings. Post-Apple Bloom's alterations, they have time to instead simply save ponies directly and don't need to do this.
  • The Paragon: Morning Star desired them to be this from a physical stand point, but they became this from a moral standpoint on their own. Ironically, this means that, for once in his existence, Morning Starr actually did his job and inspired mortals to do something truly great.
  • Ultimate Lifeform: Morning Star intended them to be thus when he inspired their parents to make them. Word of God notes that this was one of the very few times, if not the only one, that Morning Star actually did his job of inspiring mortals to do something truly great, even if his motivations were self-centered.
  • Winged Unicorn: Are 'Pseudo-alicorns' that Morning Star influenced the creation of, having magic wings. It should be noting they lack Earth Pony magic.

    Film Critique 

Film Critique / The Pegasus Despot / Triple Treat

Voiced by: Willie8496

  • Dirty Coward: After losing the shard, he's last heard pathetically groveling for mercy from his former victims as they close in on him.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: While not explicitly shown, it's stated in Starlight's chapter that he goes to Hell after his death.
  • Do with Him as You Will: Patch leaves him at the mercy of his now unbrainwashed and justifiably furious harem.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: His now unbrainwashed harem hacked him to pieces with swords, thankfully off-screen.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Was just your average geek before he got the Blue Shard, at which point he made himself the Evil Overlord of a city.
  • Freudian Excuse: Was bullied and laughed at before the apocalypse. This does not justify anything he does, though.
  • Gender Bender: In the G3 World, he becomes a female pony named Triple Treat.
  • Groin Attack: Word of God has implied this may have been where his harem started when they gave him his Karmic Death. With swords.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: See Karmic Death. Of note is, in addition, she found his room so easily because he'd give his brainwashed harem tours of the palace to show off,
  • Karmic Death: His gluttony made him too fat to be able to fly anymore, allowing Patch to throw him to his now free harem of formally brainwashed mares, who proceed to attack him with the swords hanging in their room that he put there to replicate an Arabian-style movie set.
    Patch: Thank you, karma.
  • Light Is Not Good: Found the Blue Shard of the Rainbow of Light (Laughter) and used it as a form of mind control.
  • No Name Given: In Patch's story, leading to his Fan Nickname of the Pegasus Despot. He only gets named when he cameos during Starlight's story.
  • Posthumous Character: Long dead when the main story starts due to living thousands of years ago...and Patch causing him to die.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Played for Drama. He uses the corrupt Blue Shard of the Rainbow of Light to brainwash mares into his Sex Slaves.
  • Rape as Drama: Heavily implied by Patch as one of the things he was using the Blue Shard for. Later confirmed in Starlight's story.
  • Seven Deadly Sins:
    • A pretty good representation of pride, greed, gluttony, and lust. All of which are ultimately his undoing.
    • To a degree, he's also a representation of Wrath, as some of his victims were chosen because they'd rejected him.
  • Smug Snake: Is quite full of himself during his first encounter with Patch and at Starlight's trial, but the moment the tables were turned he begs for mercy.
  • Starter Villain: Is the first of the enemies Patch faces to pose a major threat to her, but proves easy to defeat the second time around and Basil and Grogar are both far more dangerous than he was (it's implied the next shard holder would've been more Big Bad material, but sadly the Doctor negated that adventure).
  • Villainous Breakdown: When Patch turns the tables on him, he goes from Smug Snake to begging for his life. Patch doesn't listen.
  • Villainous Glutton: To the point he can't even fly anymore. Which is unfortunate for him, as it lets Patch easily arrange his Karmic Death.
  • Who's Laughing Now?: Some of his harem were girls who picked on him or turned him down in high school.

    Basil 
Voiced by: GhostyPony

  • The Ageless: What he was using his piece of the Rainbow for, as it restored him to his prime every two years.
  • Climax Boss: For Patch. Defeating him not only completes Squire's Unfinished Business, but reunites her with Brightglow, allowing her to resolve one of the things she set out to do when it all started, as well as clear up Brightglow's guilt over accidentally setting in motion the events that caused it all.
  • Get It Over With: Tells Patch to finish him off. Patch refuses, because she's already finished her business with him and thus doesn't need to fight him any further.
  • Humble Pie: His hubris about ponies being so much weaker than him is rather emphatically crushed by Patch managing to beat him. She then makes him call her master, something he said no dragon had ever done.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Is a standard Equestrian Dragon.
  • Playing with Fire: As a dragon, he can breath fire.
  • Smug Snake: Was certain a pathetic pony was no threat to him.
  • This Cannot Be!: His reaction to Patch managing to defeat him.

The Master / Fluffy the Terrible


    Grogar 
Voiced by: Baylorfan 27

  • Evil Genius: What's revealed of him shows the old goat is brilliant and capable of technological marvels. Too bad he's evil.
  • Evil Laugh: Lets one out when Patch rings the bell only for nothing to happen. Patch mentions coming from him it sounds terrifying.
  • Evil Overlord: As with his alternate self from Dark World.
  • Final Boss: Is the final and most dangerous enemy that Patch faces, coming close to killing her.
  • Hero Killer: It says a lot that Patch was willing to fight a freaking dragon with nothing but a sword but runs away from Grogar. In the end, while he's defeated, he still comes close to killing her, and leaves her with a limp she keeps the rest of her life.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Used the Rainbow fragment he found to tether his city to the mortal world, as well as remove his weakness to the bell that constantly defeated him before. He doesn't tell Patch the last part until she's kicked the bell and nothing happened, leaving her exposed right in front of him. When his minions fail to stop her, he attacks her himself and averts Imperial Storm Trooper Marksmanship Academy by scoring several direct hits, one of which leaves her with a limp for the rest of her life and the rest giving her third degree burns.
  • Regularly Scheduled Evil: Returns (or attempts to) every 500 years and has to be defeated.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Is imprisoned once again after Patch steals his piece of the Rainbow.
