    General Tropes 

  • Adaptational Badass: In the show, alicorns have powerful magic and can live to be thousands of years old (and are possibly immortal). In the world of the Pony POV Series, they are literal gods, forces of nature, and the sentient embodiments of concepts like heroism, friendship, harmony, and love, while being billions of years old, rulers of their own realms and able to travel up and down the timestream at will.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the Tarot Motifs, harmony, and Nature's Law.
  • Barred from the Afterlife: While their spirits persist after death, they cannot enter Heaven, as none are allowed to interfere with the happy ending those in Heaven have earned. With their Father's permission, however, they can speak to mortals in Heaven, including any mortal family members they may have.
  • Compelling Voice: They're shown to be capable of this, but they can't make a person behave outside of their nature with it.
  • Complete Immortality: The only known things that can truly kill an Alicorn are the power of Entropy or a Concept Killing Weapon. In the mortal world they're very hard to kill and can regenerate, and even then 'killing' them merely destroys their physical form and reverts them to their cosmic self, which is even more impossible to kill. However, neither of the known methods are recommended, as permanently killing a Concept means what they're Anthropomorphic Personification of never existed.
  • Dimension Lord: Generally, all alicorns are rulers over their own realm.
  • Fighting a Shadow: Alicorns are capable of creating Avatars, even on the same plain as themselves. These can either be weaker duplicates of themselves, or in different forms.
  • God in Human Form: Several of the Alicorns have lived lives on earth as mortals, in order to understand mortals better.
  • God of Good: With the exception of Morning Star, their numbers make up the "good" concepts such as justice, love, heroism, and self-sacrifice.
  • Non-Linear Character: Normally exist outside of time and can travel up and down the timestream at will. Though the future is still in flux, they can see potential futures.
  • Physical God: They are quite literally forces of nature, and their power over the concept they represent is absolute, and they're capable of altering reality while outside of it. While they're nearly impossible to truly kill, even their mortal incarnations are incredibly hard to kill.
  • Sentient Cosmic Force: They're not governing or controlling their concept, they are their Concept.
  • Sibling Team: Several of the Alicorns and their Concepts work in pairs—Imperatrix and Princeps (Male Dominance and Female Dominance), Cadence and Morning Star before the latter's fall to evil (Harmony and Perfection), Celestia and Luna (Sun and Moon), and Justitia and Judicium (Justice and Judgment).
  • The Power of Creation: Truly possess this while the Draconequi can only rearrange matter.
  • Time Abyss: They exist as long as the idea of their Concept does. Which translates to billions upon billions of years and possibly even longer than that. The Elders are even more so, as they've been around for multiple universes.
  • Winged Unicorn: Like Celestia and Luna, they are this.
  • You Are Number 6: An Alicorn's full name and title includes their tarot number. For example, Celestia's and Luna's full names are Nineteenth Celestia Amaterasu Solaris Equestria and Eighteenth Luna Nyx Selena Equestria, while their sister Venus is also known as Sixth Venustas Ai Astarte.


Alicorn Elders

    Father of All Alicorns 
Voiced by Nifty Koala

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Existence, Wisdom, Sanity, Truth, and the Afterlife.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Pretty much half his dialog to Liarjack consists of these.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Is likely one of the kindest and most loving beings in creation, and very forgiving of the genuinely repentant...but even He has His limits and is not somedeity you want to clop off. He offered His grandson Cupid's murderer a chance to repent and be forgiven for the massive amount of damage she caused in the process, and when she didn't have an ounce of regret, He more or less told Venus Do With Her As You Will and left the killer to her fate. According to Venus, ticking off Havoc is a better idea than ticking off the Father, if much easier to do.
  • Brutal Honesty: Sometimes. He's the embodiment of Truth, so he doesn't lie.
  • Dimension Lord: Of the universe the story takes place in. He is also literally Pony Heaven, or at least it's inside him.
  • Drop the Hammer: The one time we see Him fight, he wields a large war hammer.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A benevolent example. When Liarjack sees him, she literally can't describe him as anything other than a piece of the night sky cut in the shape of an Alicorn, all his other qualities are so apparently contradictory that she's incapable of making sense of them.
  • Emotions vs. Stoicism: Played With in regards to him and Havoc: the Father is Wisdom and very logical, rational, and stoic, while Havoc is Fear and very passionate, energetic, and emotional. However, each has aspects of the opposite end: the Father is very compassionate and an All-Loving Hero who's wrath supposedly is worse than Havoc's, if not far harder to be invoked.
  • Expy: Of the Judeo-Christian God in many regards, though a definitely case of God Is Good. Given the Pantheon exists in the human world as well and Christianity is shown to exist (Sunset mentions sh got the nickname 'Sunset Satan' due to her demon form), it's entirely possible he is the Judeo-Christian God.
  • Forgiveness: All forgiving if the one seeking it is genuinely repentant. This is because he loves all life and genuinely doesn't want to see any soul condemned if its possible to save it. He even quotes the Arc Words of Dark World to Starlight; forgiveness is not earned, it is given.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Considers no living thing worthless and loves all life.
  • Full-Name Ultimatum: Yes, just like a mortal parent, he uses his children's full names when he is angry with them (although, thankfully, this does not happen very often). When chewing out Luna for helping Celestia release the Windigos on Equus, he uses her full name, "Eighteenth Luna Nyx Selena".
  • God of Good: Shares this role with his mate, Fauna Luster. All life is precious to him.
  • Good Hurts Evil: Liarjack, who was still hanging onto her sins, tried to touch him, and experienced horrible pain due to it. The Father of All Alicorns clearly didn't WANT to do it, it's just how things work.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He loves every living thing in existence...but he will not hesitate to punish the unrepentant for their crimes, as the Nameless Filly found out. He showed her every bit of the devastation her actions caused across the universe, and when she still felt no remorse, he allowed Venus to cast her down into Pony Hell.
  • Good Parents: He's a good father. He does punish his children, but in a merciful way compared to the Draconequi. He punishes Luna for helping Celestia nearly cause The End of the World as We Know It for Ponyland by reverting her to an infant (reflecting her own immaturity). In comparison, Discord, who did the same thing, was punished by his family by being killed and resurrected several hundred times in horrifically gruesome ways (Destruction was apparently punished exactly the same for a similar slight).
  • Heaven: He apparently is Pony Heaven, or at least it's inside his body.
  • In Mysterious Ways: Subverted consistently. Probably due to being Wisdom incarnate, He's quite willing to explain why He did something if asked, as shown with his interactions with Liarjack and Starlight.
    Applejack: Yah couldn't have just told meh from the start!
    Father of All Alicorns: If I Had Just Told You, You Would Have Treated It As Nothing More Than A Lecture.
    Applejack: Ah guess yah got a point there.
  • Last-Second Chance: His willingness to do this is a key personality trait of His. He even offered one to His grandson's murderer. Though in that case, He showed that while He's all forgiving, getting on his bad side is a terrible terrible idea.
  • Made of Good: To be expected when you're literally Pony Heaven.
  • No Name Given: Never named in the story itself. According to Word of God, his name can't be pronounced by mortals, though technically the original intent was to give him the name of one of the "fathers" of the my little pony toy line.
    • Though Havoc calls him "Buddy" if that's worth anything.
    • Amicitia later refers to him as BDCZM.
  • Non-Linear Character: Like the other deities, only as a Top God he exists in every timeline at once.
  • The Older Immortal: Is called an 'Elder' for a reason. He's been around for multiple universes' entire life span.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Is understanding of his children and the various mortals who come in contact with him (even helping Dark World!Applebloom redeem her sister and giving Melody glimpse of the future to ease her concerns about her granddaughter. He's also all merciful and will forgive anyone who is genuinely repentant, and that's pretty much the only requirement to get into Heaven. Given he's the Anthropomorphic Personification of Wisdom (and thus the Perfect Wisdom), this is to be expected. The guy even offered His grandson's murderer a chance to be forgiven.
  • Riddle for the Ages: Exactly what Heaven looks like. The general description of it by those who have seen it is 'you have to be there.' It's a paradise, but it's not describable by those who are still alive.
  • So Proud of You: To Liarjack, when she successfully breaks out of her Discording using her love for her little sister.
  • Tarot Motifs: 5th, the Hierophant.
  • Team Dad: To the Alicorns and all of creation, natch. Notably to Liarjack.
  • Time Abyss: Is older than the universe several times over. In fact, according to Razzaroo, he predates time itself.
  • Top God: One of four.
  • The Spock: Described by Celestia as "logical and rational", but also holding all life as significant.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: When Liarjack sees him, the only concrete thing she can grasp about him is he appears to be a piece of the night sky made into the form of a pony. Everything else about him is simply so seemingly contradictory (due to him being the Anthropomorphic Personification of Existence) that she's incapable of making sense of any of it and finally just gives up trying to describe him. Since he's a good guy, it doesn't drive her mad, it just confuses the hay out of her.

    Fauna Luster 
Voiced by Beth Mayoh

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Existence, though also of Empathy. According to Celestia, the Elements of Harmony are infused with her power through the bearer's bond (thus why they're more powerful than the Rainbow of Light) and the Fires of Friendship was also a fraction of her power. She's also Life, and the creator of all souls.
  • Crown of Horns: Her horn is encircled by a set of tiny horns that resemble a crown.
  • Divine Intervention: It's stated that the Fires of Friendship used to defeat the Windigos WAS her power granted to Clover the Clever and company, but it was still a major feat on their part to access her power in the first place. Pretty much using Friendship to power the Elements calls on her power and combines it with the Rainbow of Light.
  • Dimension Lord: Of the Alicorn's Realm, though it also appears She can be described as Pre-Life, as She's literally The Source of all souls.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A benevolent version. She's every bit as indescribable and incomprehensible as Havoc and Entropy, but loves all living things and her presence is described as extremely pleasant.
  • The Empath: Is the embodiment of Empathy, so naturally applies. This is best shown talking to Dark World!Twilight, where no matter what She's asked, she's completely understanding of why Twilight feels the way she does and gives her logical explanations.
  • The Evils of Free Will: Inverted. She's a strong supporter of free will. Life has proved to support her viewpoint more than it does Entropy.
  • Fire/Ice Duo: The Fire to Entropy's Ice. Fauna Luster's Fire of Friendship is the source of power for the Elements of Harmony, while the Windigos, spirits of ice, are Entropy's creations.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She's literally the Mother of All Things, and every soul comes from Her, meaning every living being is literally Her child. Even though the alternative would've been extremely horrific for everything in creation, She was decidedly not happy to be forced to help Entropy destroy D__t, as she's Creation and the act of ending something is the most painful thing to her.
  • God of Good: Gender-inverted example. She's described as being the perfect empathy and loving all things.
  • Good Hurts Evil: The Elements of Harmony work by tapping into just a minute portion of her essence.
  • Good Is Not Soft: She loves her children with all her heart, but she will punish them if they've really screwed up, although she doesn't enjoy it. This is in fact very necessary, because when a Concept makes a mistake, it could permanently damage the fabric of reality or result in the deaths of innocent mortals, among other things. That last one isn't a completely hypothetical situation, either—when Celestia unleashed the Windigos on Equus after telling them to "end hatred among ponies", they took it literally and created an endless winter that killed millions and would have wiped out every living thing on Equus if not for Clover, Pansy and Cookie discovering the Fire of Friendship. In the Dark World timeline, Justitia and Judicium use this to convince Fluttershy to punish Fluttercruel for her crimes against mortals, pointing out that their Mother allowed Morning Star to be imprisoned for his crimes even though she still loved him and it broke her heart to do so.
    Cadence: The choices of a Concept can have cosmic ramifications. While Our Parents punish, they only do so because the weight of our mistakes is greater than anything a mortal can ever... or should ever know.
  • Good Parents: Clearly loves her children dearly (and all of existence), and is a pretty fair mother from what we see.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: It was extremely painful for her to help Entropy destroy D__t, but she had to do it, because the consequences of him killing all the Alicorns and Draconequi would have been nothing less than the destruction of the universe.
  • In Mysterious Ways: Subverted, like Her mate, She actually explains things in a logical fashion when asked.
  • The Lifestream: She is where all souls/lights of existence comes from.
  • Made of Good: The Fires of Friendship used to destroy the Windigos? That was a tiny piece of her.
  • No Indoor Voice: Hard to say given the nature of the flashbacks and who she is, but whenever she talks, IT'S ALWAYS TYPED LIKE THIS, just like her antithesis Entropy.
  • Non-Linear Character: Like the other deities, only as a Top God she exists in every timeline at once.
  • Not Hyperbole: She's referred to as the Mother of All Things. This is quite literal: Every soul that ever existed or ever will exist was born directly from Her.
  • The Older Immortal: Is called an 'Elder' for a reason. She's been around for multiple universes' entire life span.
  • Out of Focus: Notably the only one of the Elders to only appear in flashbacks, despite being the one named after Lauren Faust. She finally plays a central role during Dark World!Twilight's ascension.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Just like Her Husband.
  • Significant Anagram: Her name is an anagram of Lauren Faust.
  • Tarot Motifs: 21st, the World.
  • Team Mom: For the Alicorns, most of whom are her biological children. and life in general, considering she personifies it.
  • Time Abyss: Is older than the universe several times over. In fact, according to Razzaroo, she predates time itself.
  • Top God: One of four, the other three being Havoc and his wife Entropy, and Fauna's husband, the Father of All Alicorns.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Can combine Her power with Entropy's to do something that was powerful enough to bypass D__t's ability to will himself back into existence if erased.


Major Arcana Alicorns


(See Epilogue Timeline: Heroes and Epilogue Timeline: Others sections for more details)

The alicorn goddess of Magic, Friendship, and Happy Endings.

  • Ambiguous Gender: Gender was originally unknown because she hadn't existed before, but she turns out to be female.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Magic, Friendship, and Happy Endings.
  • Arch-Enemy: The original Amicitia was one to Nyarlathotrot, who keeps causing tragedy in the worlds she visits and trying to undo the happy endings she gives.
  • Badass Boast: The first thing we hear her say after completing her ascension.
    "With the rainbow of light in one hoof, and the rainbow of darkness in the other, I do not write the rules, I do not oversee the rules, I am the rules! I AM MAGIC!"
  • Big Good: Of Dark World (as the Benevolent Interloper) and the main timeline (as the Interviewers).
  • Catchphrase: "All will be well."
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: Is the only Major Arcana Alicorn not named or detailed. As it turns out, she's Dark World!Twilight, having ascended after merging with Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox.
  • Deity of Human Origin: The only Major Arcana Alicorn to be born from a mortal. Notably, her second incarnation used to be Dark World!Twilight Sparkle.
  • The Dividual: Her last act before her death was to divide herself into four individuals so she could continue protecting the universe through them. The Interviewers, Half-Lights Dawn, Noon, and Dusk, represent various sorts of happy endings while the fourth piece is Shining Armor.
  • Esoteric Happy Ending: One of the few ideas that can actually stop her. It's because from the inhabitants' point of view, there is nothing to fix or save, preventing her from manifesting.
  • God of Good: She's the Goddess of Happy Endings.
  • Happy Ending: One of the things she personifies.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sort of. In order to ensure the events of Dark World don't happen in all timelines, the original Amicitia split herself into four beings. The first three are the Interviewers, Half-Light Dawn; Half-Light Noon; and Half-Light Dusk, all three who represent degrees of happy endings. the fourth? Shining Armor, who was born out of her desire to protect all timelines, and serves as a living "nail" for everything.
  • I Have Many Names: Still goes by Twilight even after her ascension to Amicitia, and then the three Interviewers each get their own names after the split.
  • Literal Split Personality: In order to create a timeline separate from Dark World, she creates Shining Armor from herself, with the remainder dividing up into the three ponies who become the Interviewers. It turns out it also created the Spirits of Dark Magic.
  • Opt Out: Didn't participate in the Alicorn-Draconequus War.

    Spoiler Character 1 

Half-Light Midnight

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Magic and Friendship, being Amicitia's reincarnation.
  • Canon Immigrant: Debuted in the noncanon Variety Show before being brought into the main story.
  • Reincarnation: Jiniri created her from pieces of the Half-Lights and Shining Armor to be this to Amicitia. Her body was even created from Nightmare Paradox's original body.
  • Tarot Motifs: The Magician, being Amicitia's direct reincarnation.


Abbatissa / Starglow

Voiced by: Becky Horton

"Prayers are not currency."

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Prayer and Balance between conscience and instinctual decisions.
  • Divine Intervention: Is essentially the primary medium for this, acting as a road between the deities and the mortals.
  • God of Good: The Goddess of Prayer, which basically means she spends most of her time listening to every prayer in the entire universe, including indirect ones, and making sure they get to the deity that needs to hear them in order for mortals to get help when they need it.
  • The Gods Must Be Lazy: Arguably living proof this isn't the case, given she's the one who makes sure the Gods can assist mortals and is quite the busy mare herself.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: She's the Personification of Prayer. While this might not sound incredibly impressive at first glance, she's the one who hears all the prayers in creation. Every. Last. One. And is responsible for making sure they get to the proper deity, which let's them directly aid mortals effectively. Because of this, Breezy Blossom was able to be saved, as well as an alternate iteration of Cupid and by extension all those he brought into being, among other things. There's a reason she's considered one of the most important Deities by the other Gods.
  • Heavenly Blue: She has a blue coat and white mane, and is a divine Alicorn.
  • Number Two: Out of her siblings, she is the closest to, and the most like, their mother Fauna Luster and spends a lot of time learning from her.
  • Tarot Motifs: 2, The High Priestess.
  • Unstoppable Mailman: With prayers instead of letters. One of her most important duties is to pass along every mortal's prayer to the right deity. In Loose Canon, she doesn't even register being female once her sister Imperatrix introduces it into existence and tags her due to being too busy with her job.

Princeps's twin sister, and the alicorn goddess of female authority.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Nurturing, Lust, and Female Dominance. She's also the embodiment of being female.
  • Gender Bender: Played with. According to Loose Canon, when she first came into being her and her brother played a game of tag with the other gods and those Imperatrix tagged became female. Played With, as they didn't have a gender before that.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name denotes her as a ruling female, appropriate considering what one of her Concepts is.

Imperatrix's twin brother, and the alicorn god of male authority.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Authority, Male Dominance, and Order. He also represents being Male.
  • Gender Bender: Played with. According to Loose Canon, when he first came into being he and his sister played a game of tag with the other gods and those Princeps tagged became male. Played With, as they didn't have a gender before that.
  • Meaningful Name: His name refers to something that is first in time or order.
  • Non-Linear Character: As with everyone in his family, he probably has every incarnation in every universe and timeline.


Venustas Ai Astarte/Happyglow

Voiced by: Suzanne Muir

The alicorn goddess of love and fertility. Through an affair with a mortal pony, she had a demigod son, Cupid, who was murdered by the Nameless Filly.

  • Adult Fear: She had to go through the death of her only child, Cupid, who was murdered by the Nameless Filly because she wanted to vent her relationship problems on love itself. Thankfully, the alternate timeline created by Amicitia!Twilight ensures that Cupid lives by motivating the creatures Cupid has influenced into praying for him, even though he was still attacked by the Nameless Filly.
  • All-Loving Hero: Seeing as she's literally love itself. The one exception was her son's murderer, and even then it was more because of how royally said murderer screwed up the universe without remorse (which was second only to Eclipse's plan in death toll).
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Love, all kinds.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's the Goddess of Love and is incapable of true hatred, and quick to forgive...but for the love of everything do not clop her off, and more importantly, do not be unrepentant for your wrongdoing if you do. You will regret it.
  • Forgiveness: Gives this to the Rainbow Dash who was Eclipse's Nightmare Manacle.
  • For Want of a Nail: The death of her demigod son, Cupid, and the events that transpired after. In the original timeline, after Cupid's death, Venus arrived to exact vengeance by killing the Nameless Filly, destroying her identity, and making a new child out of a piece of her which she subsequently threw into Tartarus. But in an alternate timeline Amicitia!Twilight created, Turris arrives first to protect Cupid, allowing Venus to see that her son is still alive.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Is everyone's love, and thus cares about everything. The only exception to the rule is the nameless murderer of her son, Cupid.
  • Innocent Flower Girl: Venus' avatar Aphrodite is this normally, but Venus is enraged at seeing her dead son's bow being misused and she turns her into a berserker.
  • Love Goddess: The Goddess of all kinds of loves.
  • Mama Bear: Her son, Cupid, was killed by a mortal Pegasus. Her response was to descend to mortal reality in an Unstoppable Rage. The legend says she either had killed the Pegasus, destroyed her identity and made her her new child, or had Pandora erase her from existence. Celestia says Venus refuses to say what, and said that the legend didn't do what she really did justice. Turns out she did all three except destroying her identity, instead taking a piece of her to create a new child, then throwing her into Tartarus.
  • Meaningful Name: Her full name is Venustas Ai Astarte.
  • Misplaced Retribution: She attacks Tootsie for wielding Cupid's Bow, calling her a defiler and grave robber. Tootsie had no idea who Cupid even was and had been given the bow as a gift. She eventually realizes she was overreacting and apologizes, and also explaining that like Havoc's avatar before, hers went berserk when she got enraged.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Her son, Cupid, was stabbed by a pegasus wielding the Concept Killing Spear, not only killing him, but erasing him, his Concept, and all of his actions from history, leaving the Alicorns as the only ones able to remember him. Fortunately, Amicitia!Twilight subverts it for her by creating an alternate universe where Cupid lives, protected from the Nameless Filly by Turris.
  • Physical Goddess
  • Promotion to Parent: When Luna was regressed back to an infant as punishment for helping Celestia unleash the Windigos, their Father tasked Venus and Cadence with looking after her until she was herself again.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Apologies to Tootsie for her Avatar going berserk and nearly killing her, even giving her medicine for her burns. She also gives an in depth explanation of why she got so angry that her Avatar went berserk.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: When her son was killed.
  • Technical Pacifist: Only fought in The War when there was no other option to do so.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Her revenge for her son's death was very through.
  • The Power of Love: Is the literal embodiment of this. And she is not someone to underestimate either. The reformed Nightmare Manacle notes that she's the power behind several of Equestria's 'do not under any circumstances buck with this' magical objects.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Killing the son of a Physical Goddess? Not a good idea...At. All. Probably an even worse one thanks to her being a Love Goddess. She goes into this again in the Finale arc when she finds out that Tootsie was unknowingly wielding Cupid's Bow, angrily accusing her of robbing his grave, and would have killed her if Diamond Tiara hadn't stopped her. It turns out that her rage caused her Avatar to go berserk like Havoc's once did, making it even more an example of this trope. It's also revealed that the bow was a Rage Breaking Point, as she was already furious over her breaking up Truffle and Twist's love for her own selfish desires, which she explains to her.
  • Tarot Motifs: 6, The Lovers.
  • The Worf Effect: Her power and ferocity when enraged is legendary, but she gets knocked out and injured by Diamond Tiara to demonstrate her power as a Nightmare. Though to be fair, that was simply a berserk Avatar and took most of Diamond's power to pull off.

Voiced by Duskstroke Serenade

Voiced by: Sara Clark

The alicorn goddess of Justice and Law.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Justice and Law.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: During "Fluttercruel's Punishment", along with her brother Judicium, she asks several of these to Fluttershy to make her understand why Fluttercruel needs to be punished for her crimes, specifically pointing out that it is Fluttershy's responsibility as a mother to help her daughter understand why her actions were wrong.
    Justitia: Will you show responsibility as a parent? Or do you seek just the idealized image of parenthood?
  • Bequeathed Power: Currus' Concept/Light of Existence, given to her as he died.
  • Berserk Button: Implying that she would misuse her power over justice to hurt her own family.
  • Good Is Not Soft: When Dark World!Fluttershy refused to allow Dark World!Fluttercruel to be punished for her crimes, she and Judicium summoned a gigantic army of Fluttercruel's victims to wait outside the front door of her house in Pony Heaven and basically told Fluttershy that if she did not choose a suitable punishment for her daughter, they would allow every single one of Fluttercruel's victims to torture her the way she did to them when they were alive.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: During the Alicorn-Draconequi War, Morning Star tried to convince her to turn to his side, calling himself a Perfect Being and her the Perfect Justice. Her response was, "The only thing you've ever been is the Perfect Failure and the Perfect Disappointment."
  • Sibling Team: She works alongside her brother Judicium, her Justice and his Judgement going hoof in hoof.
  • Tarot Motifs: 8, Justice.


    Rota Fortuna 

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Fate, Cause and Effect, Consequences, and Free Will.
  • Badass Boast: Gives one to the Eldritch Abominations she helped imprison in Tartarus.
    Rota Fortuna: You should leave all the same. Or would you rather I 'kick your flanks', as she so eloquently put it, again?"
  • Broken Angel: Discord implies he tried to saw her wings off at some point, but we never find out if it stuck. It turns out it become the Blank Wolf. She's also fated to always lose that wing no matter what the universe.
    • Artificial Limbs: Her later appearances in 7 Dreams/Nightmares and Dark World describe one of her wings as looking like its made of clockwork, implying it's meant to replace the one Discord sawed off, meaning it did stick.
  • Canis Major: Seems to have a thing for wolves. She's the mother of the Blank Wolf and when several of Manacle's rescued Scootaloos chose to join its job, they became wolves as well.
  • Chained by Fashion: She wears broken manacles around her hooves.
  • Evil Will Fail: She gives a speech to Nyarlathotrot stating that no matter how much evil there is in any given world, there will always be ways for the oppressed to free themselves and heroes who exist to bring the villains down.
    Rota Fortuna: You and the Shadows who birthed you wish to know why I do not interfere? Because as She Who Crafts the Lines of Fate, I must not have favorites. I must grant every single being in creation fair potential futures. Every being has good ends, bad ends, neutral ends, and every potential type of end, it's the sum of their choices. If I ever began playing favorites? I could become a much worse devil than Morning Star. But know this: no matter however I craft the many possibilities that await all life, while there are negative choice and consequences for them, there will ALWAYS be fates in EVERY world where monsters like you and the evils you sow fall. Even in the darkest of your tainted worlds, there will always exist a way for life to tear itself free from your tendrils. I swear on my Mother that is true.
  • The Hecate Sisters: Has a one mare version of this going on; she constantly shifts between being a filly, an adult mare, and an old mare.
  • Mama Bear: Comes to her descendant Clover's defense against the group of Eldritch Abominations she helped seal in Tartarus.
  • Meaningful Name: "Rota" from "rotate", as in the rotations of the wheel of fate. "Fortuna" is obvious.
  • Non-Linear Character: While all Alicorns and Draconequi qualify, she created the roads of Fate, even though she doesn't decide what someone's fate has to be and lets them choose. When she meets with Apple Bloom, the latter sees multiple versions of her, many of which are making many branching roads beginning with Fauna Luster's dawn and coming back together at Entropy's dusk, and even sees another Rota and Apple Bloom that just branched off from them having their own conversation.
  • Physical Goddess
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives a scathing one to Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox when the latter is being defeated by the Dark World Elements of Harmony, which drives her into a Villainous BSoD.
  • Screw Destiny: Less she has a problem with this as the mentality, as in this universe it's completely misunderstanding how Fate actually works. Many mortals either blame her for everything, while many others hate her for existing. Fate actually works by having many roads and which one is taken is entirely dependent on the choices of mortals. In actuality trying to do this trope intentionally is more likely to get you 'stuck in the wheel,' while accepting fate will permit this trope by allowing you to guide the wheel.
  • Tarot Motifs: 10, The Wheel Of Fate
  • Truly Single Parent: The Blank Wolf is her severed wing turned into a sapient cosmic entity. She also creates Cardinal out of her own blood.
  • You Cannot Fight Fate: Subverted. She laid the roads of fate, and can predict the probable outcome of something, but she doesn't force any particular fate on anyone, meaning they choose their own fate and it appears things can happen which even she can't predict. When that happens, she doesn't appear particularly shocked or angry, implying she's perfectly fine with ponies choosing to Screw Destiny. Makes sense, given her Mother's belief in the importance of free will.
    • It's later revealed she was actually the Goddess of Free Will.
    • Turns out you can't, and yet you can. As she informs Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox, those who actively try to fight against fate are caught in the spokes of its wheel. Only those who embrace fate can recognize it and steer it in a new direction.
    • Played Straight with Fortuna herself, as she will always lose her wing which would become the Blank Wolf somehow no matter what she does.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Self-Sacrifice, Will to Survive, and Redemption.
  • Crystal Dragon Jesus: The Tarot card he's based off is heavily associated with Jesus, he's extremely self sacrificing, and never gives up on anyone potentially being redeemed. He also wears a crown of thorns. Given the Pantheon exists in the human world as well, and Christianity explicitly does as well (with Human!Flash even outright saying Jesus's name at one point), it's possible he's not simply an Expy.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Pretty much what he personifies. He's fully willing to sacrifice himself to stop Destruction's rampage from hurting anyone, but Abracadabra chooses to instead.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is a Latin term for "hanging down", which is appropriate considering what his Concept is.
  • Nice Guy: From what we see of him, he's this. He wanted Abracadabra's last moments peaceful and happy until things with Destruction wrecked it, and even protects her despite her being on the 'erase' list.

The alicorn god of Death and Rebirth.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Death, Rebirth, and Change.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: First appears in one of the possible futures Applejack glimpses during her first look into the Truth, well before his introduction in Origins.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite his job and appearance (black with bone wings), he comes across as a pretty decent guy, if not burdened by the difficulty of his job.
  • Defeating the Undefeatable: It's commonly stated prophetically that there is only one being that will ever defeat him, which he's used as a Badass Boast on a few occasions to people who aren't that person. It's implied in several places it will be Twilight, or at least the Magician Alicorn, which is normally her.
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: Despite being Death, he's not evil in the least and generally seems kind, even if he's burdened by his job (who wouldn't be?). He also doesn't seem to have a problem with allowing certain souls to remain on Earth until they've finished their Unfinished Business, as happened with the G2 mane cast (none of them wanted to pass on until all of them were together). He even made it a point to Morning Star that the souls he ferries should know if the next place they're being transported to is fair, and they should be treated as LIVING BEINGS, not mere cargo to deliver.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Strife; they've even had children together and are apparently married.
  • Meaningful Name: His names means "of death" in Latin. Fittingly, he's the Alicorn of Death, whose Tarot card is the thirteenth, "Death".
  • Pressure Point: Uses acupuncture to easily disable Rancor when she, while visiting the past, starts getting out of hand.
  • Psychopomp: One of his jobs is to ferry souls of the deceased into the afterlife.
  • Skull for a Head: His wings and head are white bone.
  • Tarot Motifs: 13, Death. Quite fitting, since both his name and job are death-themed.
  • You Cannot Fight Fate: In several places, it's stated only one person will ever defeat him, which doesn't seem to bother him. He does tell this to others however.

    Morning Star Lucifer Belial 
Voiced by Micheal A. Novelli

Once the alicorn god of Perfection and Beauty, he fell from grace and became the embodiment of Evil and Temptation.

  • Antagonistic Offspring: To Father and Fauna Luster, his parents, who he saw as "unworthy" of ruling over creation.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Intended to be one of Perfection and Beauty, but ultimately became the embodiment of Evil and Temptation.
  • Beard of Evil: This illustration shows him with a goatee.
  • Beauty Is Bad: One of his Concepts is Beauty, yet like his namesake, he was the first alicorn to become a sinner. Many more evil acts followed.
  • Big Brother Bully: Imperatix and Princeps realized their Concepts sometime after he did, making Morning Star older than them. He also expressed extreme disgust at their very Concepts coming into existence, and antagonized the twins for spoiling his "perfect" work. He was also a Control Freak towards his other siblings, who all became fearful and reluctant to proceed with creating the universe without provoking his wrath, to the point where the Alicorn Elders had to step in.
  • Birds of a Feather: Platonic example; he was once this to Cadence, his older sister; they never quarreled with each other, and they worked so perfectly together that Cadence was called "Evening Star" by her family to compliment her brother's name. This is no longer the case after he fell to evil.
  • Black Sheep: The only evil alicorn, to compliment Discord being the only evil draconequi.
  • Charm Person: Being the literal embodiment of beauty, he's so supernaturally beautiful that mortals are compelled to listen and agree with him. And unlike Makarov/Nameless, this isn't a reality alternation but him just being that supernaturally beautiful.
  • Control Freak: Flashbacks into his descent into evil showed that he was very demanding towards his siblings, telling them what they should do or shouldn't do with creation, and if anyone tried doing anything without HIS input, he would fly into a fury. His tyrannical behavior eventually made his siblings afraid of him and put off new ideas to avoid his wrath, slowing progress to a near-complete halt. He even viewed two of his siblings, Imperatrix and Princeps, as abominations because their Concepts didn't fit his standards. When Father and Fauna Luster tried to curb his behavior, it only made things worse as he later ended up rebelling.
  • The Corrupter: Goes with being Temptation. What little we see of him implies this.
  • Divinely Appearing Demons: Is a Fallen Angel and in universe version of Satan, but is radiantly and impossibly beautiful. this is opposed to Nightmares, who tend to become more demonic in nature.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: During the early days of creation, he became a complete Control Freak and started throwing tantrums every time one of his siblings created something that didn't fit into his vision of how the world should be, saying they were ruining his "perfect world". His behavior is somewhat similar to a book editor/film director/TV show producer rejecting the ideas of everyone else on their creative team because they believe only they are capable of making the finished product perfect.
  • Engineered Heroics: His act of stealing and throwing Pandora's Box was intended to be this so he could save it and prove himself right to his siblings. It didn't turn out how he planned
  • Evil Mentor: Served as one for Discord, teaching him the art of manipulation. This later led to Rota Fortuna losing one of her wings.
  • Evil Makes You Ugly: He himself remained supernaturally beautiful, but after his fall, his Realm (which is him) became hideous, vile and awful, as unlike his outward appearance it represented who he genuinely is at heart. According to Cadence, he didn't even notice the change.
  • The Evils of Free Will: Believes Free Will ruins the perfection of the universe and desires to destroy it. Cadence suggests that he more or less just used Free Will as a scapegoat because he hated everything that wasn't his idea and just zeroed in on that particular Concept to focus on.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: He's the Concept of Beauty itself and thus supernaturally beautiful, but he's also literally evil incarnate.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Attempted to make himself this by stealing Pandora's Box of Dark Magic and using it in an attempt to make a problem only he could solve to convince his parents he was right.
  • Fallen Angel: Turned against his parents and tried to conquer the universe, believing himself to be more perfect than them. Given he's a Satanic Archetype, this is to be expected. The only thing that makes him different from Celestia, who went through a similar situation, was that the latter regretted her decisions, begged for forgiveness, accepted her punishment, and was welcomed back by her family and relatives.
  • God of Evil: Is literally the Concept of Evil.
  • Gone Horribly Right: He was born to become the Alicorn of Perfection. He came to regard himself as so absolutely perfect that no one could ever match him or his perfect vision for the world, and this resulted in him hating everyone and everything that wasn't him and therefore wasn't perfect in his eyes—mortals and the mortal world, the Draconequi, and his own family.
  • Good Powers, Bad People: Is the Anthropomorphic Personification of Perfection and Beauty, but fell to evil and became the very Concept of it.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Serves as one for Tirek and Lilith the First Witch, as he was the one that sent Pandora's Box of dark magic to the planet where they'd find it and use its power, which also makes him this to ever evil dark magic user to ever live.
  • Humans Are Flawed: Considers mortals flawed, disgusting things and hates them with a passion.
  • Irony: According to Word of God, Morning Star's problem is he never truly understood perfection, which means for all his smug superiority, he couldn't even understand himself.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: Refers to Fizzypop as 'it' constantly when meeting with her. D__t points out even the mortals he likes and refers to with the proper pronouns are more like toys or things to him than people.
  • It's All About Me: The root cause of his fall: he refused to accept anything existing in the new universe that isn't exactly what he wanted it to be.
  • Light Is Not Good: As one would expect of the Satan analog. He's the Anthropomorphic Personification of Perfection and Beauty, but also the incarnation of Evil itself.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He taught Discord to be one. Not a surprise, considering who he's based on.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is what Lucifer (the devil's real name) means. His middle name actually is Lucifer, and his last name is Belial, another name for the Devil.
  • Narcissist: According to Loose Canon, he literally invented lust upon seeing his own reflection after gaining a gender.
  • Non-Linear Character: Possibly the only aversion, as he's imprisoned. Though played straight in some regards, as he was able to appear in the G3 Apocalypse which happened after his imprisonment from the perspective of the other deities besides D__t.
  • Not Me This Time:
    • D__t accuses him of sabotaging the Wish Spell because he couldn't stand the idea that mortals could make something more perfect than he could. Morning Star replies that he really was innocent of that crime.
    • He also didn't plant the idea in Cadenza's head to try and kill Amicitia. If anything, he was delighted at Amicitia's sense of order and reason.
  • The Paragon Always Rebels: Is quite often mentioned as having been loved by his siblings especially Cadence, who was so close to him that she was called "Evening Star" and was beautiful to apparently a Charm Person level. And yet he fell and became the literal incarnation of evil. The irony is from his perspective, his paragons, the Glow Siblings, rebelled by choosing to become something different from what he intended in G3.
  • Predecessor Villain: To Discord, his pupil.
  • Pride: As with who he's based on, this is Morning Star's Fatal Flaw. He sincerely believed that he knows better than literally everyone else, including His Parents.
  • Redeeming Replacement: Rarity has the potential to become this for him as Concept of Beauty and Perfection.
  • Satanic Archetype: He is the Devil Tarot after all. His full name is also Morning Star Lucifer Belial, all of which are names for the Devil in some way. Given a human world version of him exists and so does Christianity (with Satan being mentioned by name at one point), it's possible he's actually Satan, or at least his inspiration.
  • Satan is Good: Morning Star wants everyone in creation to think he's this, he thinks he's this, and mortals who meets him are quickly taken in with this idea due to him being just so handsome... then you find out its his Parents who believe in free will, and he wants it gone from the universe. He's also a complete narcissist who views even mortals he likes as closer to toys.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was imprisoned for his crimes, but released by Havoc to lead the Draconequi in the war. His fate afterwards is unknown, but Word of God has said he was either killed in the war or imprisoned in Hell as part of the Draconequi's end of peace treaty between them and the Alicorns.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Is imprisoned in Tartarus during the story proper, but was Discord's Evil Mentor, indirectly gave Lord Tirek his power and created the Children of Lilith, and created the four mortals who's souls would eventually become Silver Spoon, Diamond Tiara, Apple Bloom, and Golden Tiara.
  • So Proud of You: By his standards, he showed a tiny hint of pride when his pupil Discord was able to permanently main Rota Fortuna, the Concept of Free Will and the embodiment of the thing he hated the most.
  • Stealing the Credit: Claims he made the Glow Sisters perfect, but D__t points out all he did was give them their magic, they became the paragons they were on their own. Indeed, their most heroic shown acts are things Morning Star would never have done. According to Word of God, he only actually served as the Muse who inspired the unicorn scientists that gave them their powers to do so, meaning while it was his idea originally literally everything else was the work of mortals.
  • Tarot Motifs: 15, The Devil.
  • The Paragon Always Rebels: As Concept of Perfect, he's was originally supposed to be perfect and was considered one of the greater Alicorns. However, he fell to evil and became the devil he would be known as.
  • Ultimate Lifeform:
    • Was intended to be the deity equivalent of this as the Concept of Perfection. Unfortunately, he believed he was more perfect than the elders and turned into the Concept of Evil instead. In his lecture to Justitia, he still refers to himself as 'the Perfect Being', however.
    • He seemed to believe the Glow Sisters he helped create were this. Word of God notes this was the one time in his entire existence that he ever once did his actual purpose of inspiring mortals to do something truly great, even if it was only to serve his own ego.
  • Uncertain Doom: After the Draconequi-Alicorn War, he was either killed by the Draconequi as part of the peace treaty or banished back to Hell.
  • Villain Has a Point: He's an apathetic, sociopathic monster, but he has a point that the mortals caused the G3 cataclysm themselves. He's wrong in that it does little to prove he'd be any better as the one in charge of it.
  • Villain of Another Story: He's clearly a big threat and a Satanic Archetype, but Discord is the Big Bad and not him. We finally see some of his villainy when he sends Pandora's Box of dark magic to the planet.

The alicorn god of Barriers and Unbreakable Defense.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Barriers, Divisions, and Unbreakable Defense.
  • Barrier Warrior: As one of his Concepts is Barriers, he specializes in the creation of impenetrable force-fields. They're strong enough to block even the destruction of the Concept-Killing Spear, in one timeline.
  • Creator Cameo: Is voiced by one of the beta readers and assistant writers for the fanfic.
  • For Want of a Nail: Amicitia!Twilight was able to create an alternate timeline where Turris was able to arrive in time to protect Cupid from the Nameless Filly, and destroy the Concept-Killing Spear.
  • Irony: Drawing the Tower Tarot is usually supposed to be a bad thing, but he's not evil.
  • Papa Wolf: In an alternate timeline created by Amicitia!Twilight, Turris was able to come to Cupid's rescue in time and prevent the Nameless Filly from killing his demigod nephew. He even destroys the Concept-Killing Spear by making it hit itself, causing it to implode.
  • Stone Wall: Is described as having a defense nothing can break except for Leo, and even then they just neutralize each other. In an alternate universe created by Amicitia!Twilight, he's even capable of blocking the backlash of the Concept-Killing Spear's destruction.
  • Tarot Motifs: 16, The Tower.


Galaxia / Dazzleglow / Star-Reacher

The alicorn goddess of Stars, Healing, and Renewal. One of her mortal descendants is Prince Blueblood.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Sacrifices a leg fighting Ungoliant to keep her from attacking any of the heroes during rumors. She has a stardust replacement.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Stars, Healing, and Renewal. Blueblood going through Character Development may have stemmed from him being her descendant.
  • The Cameo: Appears in a vision to Blueblood, her mortal descendant, when Discord is re-sealed by the Elements of Harmony.
  • Divine Parentage: Well not really, but Blueblood is one of her mortal descendants.
  • Killed Off for Real: While she remains as a Concept and lives in the spirit realm, Discord definitely killed her mortal form.
  • Magical Nanny: When Celestia and Luna were born into the mortal world, she showed up to Paradise Estate in the guise of a housekeeper named Star-Reacher to look after them.
  • Physical Goddess: As an immortal alicorn, she is one by default.
  • Prophecy Twist: Rota confirms Ungoliant is correct that many of Galaxia's fates involve being eaten by her, but Rota also points out none of them end well for Ungoliant either, and the prophecy merely says she will be eaten, not that she will die. Rota also tells Celestia that the sacrifice of her leg she made holding off Ungoliant to protect the heroes during Rumors, she may have created someone who will avert the prophecy.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Discord killing her shows just how powerful he became.
  • Stellar Name: One of her mortal names is "Star-Reacher."
  • Tarot Motifs: 17, The Star.
  • What You Are in the Dark: Was unable to kill a baby Discord in his sleep, even though she knew the monster he could become.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Narrowly averted. She wanted to kill the infant Discord to prevent him from becoming the sadistic, cruel, and trolling monster he would become in the future, but stopped herself from doing so due to personal morals.


The alicorn god of Balance, Judgement, and Fair say.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Balance, Judgment, and Fair Say.
  • Dimension Lord: While all the Alicorns and Draconequi are this to their own realm, we get to see his in Starlight's Gaiden chapter, which appears as a courtroom. Though according to Word of God, that was actually it taking on A Form You Are Comfortable With.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: Doesn't cause these, he's merely the one who sounds the trumpet to announce it's time for it to happen once a timeline has gotten to the point it has to die.
  • Good Is Not Soft: When Dark World!Fluttershy refused to allow Dark World!Fluttercruel to be punished for her crimes, he and Justitia summoned a gigantic army of Fluttercruel's victims to wait outside the front door of her house in Pony Heaven and basically told Fluttershy that if she did not choose a suitable punishment for her daughter, he would allow every single one of Fluttercruel's victims to torture her the way she did to them when they were alive.
  • Magic Versus Science: In one of the few cases he did judge, he ruled that neither Magic nor Science is inherently better, as both are reaching for the truth of how the world works.
  • Mismatched Eyes: He has one red eye and one blue eye.
  • Omnidisciplinary Lawyer: During Rumors, he's basically tasked with tying every court rumor in knots to keep them from getting through, and so far has yet to fail at one. Justified, as he's literally the Deity of Judgment and Fair Say, if anyone would be this trope, it'd be him.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He IS the personification of Fair Say. As he states to Fluttershy, his judgements cannot be biased; he cannot even make excuses for family members who committed crimes. During Fluttercruel's trial, he finds her guilty of her crimes and determines that she will be punished, but allows Fluttershy to choose a punishment for her daughter that will make her understand why what she did was wrong.
  • Tarot Motifs: 20, Judgment.

Minor Arcana Alicorns

    Princess Gaia 

Princess Gaia (Fluttershy)

(See "Mane Cast", "Antagonist", and "Epilogue Timeline-Heroes" Sections for more details)

    Princess Anasi 

Princess Anasi (Dark World!Trixie)

  • Ascended Fanon: First appeared in a Recursive Fanfiction story which then became a prior loop of the Dark World after Eclipse's reveal.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Theatre, Drama, Storytelling, and Trickery.
  • Consummate Liar: She's literally the anthropomorphic personification of trickery and theatre, so comes with the territory. She's this trope to such an extent that her ability to lie trumps Nightmare Mirror's ability to pierce lies (though she admits she and Veritas cancel out).
  • Defiant to the End: Against Nightmare Eclipse in her mortal life, which includes giving her a Wound That Will Not Heal.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Was a previous incarnation of Dark World!Trixie who ascended thanks to Cadence.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Before her mortal life was ended by Nightmare Eclipse, she left the Wound That Will Not Heal on her face.
  • The Ghost: Is only mentioned by name with nothing else being known about this Alicorn.
    • Finally appears during Dark World!Twilight's ascension and appears later to speak with the Nightmares.
  • Large Ham: Well, she is the literal personification of storytelling, so this is to be expected. Her realm is described as being the single hammiest place in creation, and since it's literally her...
  • Meaningful Name: Derived from Anansi, the keeper of stories in African myth.
  • Never the Selves Shall Meet: Subverted: The Trixie from the final Dark World loop is one of her angels. Anasi points out this was to be expected, given Trixie was pretty much already worshiping herself before she found out there was a version of her who was a god.
  • No-Sell: She's immune to Nightmare Mirror's truth vision and can actually fool her with illusions. She explains this is because she's a Concept and Mirror is still incomplete, so while their Alicorn forms would be even, her powers currently trump Mirror's.
  • Not Quite Dead: Somehow survived her universe being destroyed.
  • Sole Survivor: Her timeline was erased by Nightmare Eclipse, but she managed to survive and become a Concept. However, her Scootaloo and Gilda were revealed to have been saved by Manacle and Whisper and she's ultimately reunited with them.
  • Tarot Motifs: Queen of Wands.
  • Trickster God: Is the Goddess of Trickery.

    Queen Liberalis 

Queen Liberalis (Dark World!Rarity)

(See "Epilogue Timeline-Heroes" Sections for more details)

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of the Mortal World.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Ascended after the Elements of Chaos (seemingly?) overloaded when Twilight bequeathed the entire Dark World universe to her.
  • Dimension Lord: Unlike the other deities (whose realm is in the spirit world), hers is the Mortal Universe.
  • Genius Loci: As the Concept of the Mortal World, she literally is the mortal universe. Nightmare Manacle describes standing in the mortal world as being akin to standing on her skin.
  • The Ghost: Like Anasi, she is only mentioned by name with nothing else being known... only to appear just after Twilight's ascension.
  • Reincarnation: Merged with the Light of Existence of the Concept of the Mortal Universe from the previous iteration of it upon ascension. She states to Entropy that ultimately, her Light will merge with the next Concept of the Mortal World when the universe eventually dies of Heat Death and is recreated.
  • Tarot Motifs: Queen of Coins.

    Princess Veritas 

Princess Veritas (Dark World!Applejack)

    Princess Thalia 

Princess Thalia (Dark World!Pinkie Pie)

    Princess Fidelitas Moksha Equestria 

Princess Fidelitas Moksha Equestria (Eclipse's Rainbow Dash)/Prism Rush

"Endings are supposed to be new beginnings, not the same beginning."

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Loyalty and Breaking of Cycles.
  • Anti-Magic: Her very existence negates time loops like those Nightmare Eclipse's powers ran on, making her a Man of Kryptonite to such entities. She's also able to negate any additional experience or power ups someone exploiting a "Groundhog Day" Loop gained from previous loops, resetting them to the 'baseline'. She still kept the Element of Free Will, and thus can completely negate any brainwashing.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Arrives to save Gilda from Nightmare Nihilis and hold her off to give the heroes time to recover.
  • For Want of a Nail: She hates a lot of 'quick fix' solutions because of this trope. Mainly ones that attempt to prevent Sunset Shimmer from stealing Twilight's crown, as they fail to account for the future villains that would inevitably arise and now be unopposed.
  • From a Single Cell: Still has her Element of Chaos and after her body is vaporized by Nightmare Nhilis, it regenerates her body underground allowing her to ambush her later on and restrain her.
  • Good Versus Good: Her fight with the Cyclists is this, as they're not bad and neither is she, but as an outside force no one is aware of, no one thinks she's actually there to do what she says she is (fix Yggdrasil so the loops can end) and she has to keep them busy long enough for Princess Praegressus to do it. She even admits they're not bad ponies and she didn't want to hurt them.
  • Guardian of the Multiverse: Is a multiverse traveler in her job. She's also explicitly designed to be an Eclipse killer in case someone like her ever appears again.
  • "Groundhog Day" Loop: She breaks these simply be existing in a world line.
  • Man of Kryptonite: To Nightmare Eclipse, as she's tailor-made to negate the powers and abilities of her and any being like her to prevent another such evil from ever coming about. It's shown in Loose Canon this ability seems to work by separating the loops into separate timelines were it ended.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name, Fidelitas, means "faithfulness". Considering she's Eclipse!Rainbow Dash redeemed and ascended to Concepthood, this was a given. Her middle name Moksha is a Hindu philosophy referring to liberation and release, specifically the freedom from the cycle of rebirth. Fits her quite well as Alicorn of Breaking Cycles.
  • Obvious Rule Patch: According to Word of God, it's possible she's one of these In-Universe to prevent another Nightmare Eclipse from ever happening again.
  • Out of Continues: Has this as an explicit power: she can end any timeloop, and thus anyone who relies on 'resetting' when they lose can't do so when she's involved.
  • Oxymoronic Being: Notes herself that Loyalty and Breaking Cycles can seem opposite, but also that the true nature of Concepts means they have more than one side to them and that balance is what separates them from Nightmares.
  • Secret Identity: She poses as a unicorn named Prism Rush during the events of the Last Battle Arc while assisting the heroes as she has to hide from the Wolf. Watching Gilda being on the receiving end of a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown courtesy of Nightmare Nihilis forced her out in the open with her true identity.
  • Transformation Trinket: Uses a necklace with a jewel shard in it to turn from Prism Rush to her alicorn self.
  • Tarot Motifs: The Ace of Swords.
  • Willfully Weak:
    • She could've won her fight with the Cyclists any time she wanted with her Man of Kryptonite power, but didn't until Princess Praegressus finished fixing Yggdrasil and it was safe to do. In addition, the native Pantheon would've come down on her if she messed up, which she wouldn't have had as easy of a time with.
    • She has to hold back against Nightmare Nihilis so as to not attract the Wolf and have everything she did erased. She also doesn't want to kill Nihilis, as she, like everyone else, acknowledges that Diamond is a victim and wants to help save her. She loses, but still accomplishes the goal she went into the fight with.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Keeps Nightmare Nihilis busy to buy time for the heroes to recover and rest.

    Princess Jiniri 

Princess Jiniri (Razzaroo)

(See "G3 Universe" section for more details.)

The alicorn goddess of wishes and miracles. Such is her power that if one requested it, she could resurrect people from the dead.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Wishes and Miracles.
  • Back from the Dead: Not her herself, but she has the unique ability to resurrect deities like Destruction and Curris who died and had their concept taken by another. The Elders specifically created her because even they weren't capable of doing this.
  • Benevolent Genie: Part of her Alicorn trial was making sure she'd be this.
  • Last of Her Kind: The last living G3 Pony. As with Anasi, this is a motivation for her ascension.
  • Make a Wish: Her concept is this. Also a major theme of her design, with her mane and tail being made of flowing sand and her barding resembling genie attire.
  • Meaningful Name: Jiniri is a female genie in mythology, Miraculum means Miracle in latin. Her last name, Ponyland, references she was from Ponyland, not Equestria.
  • Our Genies Are Different: Themed heavily after one, though she's actually a goddess.
  • Tarot Motifs: The Nine of Cups.
  • Wrong Context Magic: Being the concept of Miracles and Wishes, she can do some things none of the other deities can do. Including resurrecting other deities who have been killed and had their Concept absorbed by another one, something not even the Elders can do. Justified, as the Elders invoked this trope to create a Concept that could.

    Princess Praegressus Machinas Equestria 

Princess Praegressus Machinas Equestria / VarietyShowVerse!Applebloom

(See the Pinkie Pie's Fourth-Wall Variety Show section for more information)


    General Tropes 

  • Alliterative Family: Each of the Draconequi children has a name or a secondary name that begins with the letter "D" — Discordance, Destruction, D___t, Strife (Dispute), Pandora (Desire), Anarchy (Disorder), and Rancor (Disruption), who inherited Destruction's secondary name after his death.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of chaos and Nature's Fury.
  • Barred from the Afterlife: Like the Alicorns, they can't enter Heaven. Though they can enter Hell, that's likely because they help their Father torment the condemned.
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: To be expected from an entire family made up of chaos gods. Entropy regularly poofs her husband Havoc out of existence (and, being as powerful as her, he wills himself back into existence every time), erased her oldest child permanently from existence because he was planning to kill all the Alicorns and Draconequi and make himself the only god of the universe, and gave birth to her and Havoc's youngest daughter Rancor for the sole purpose of killing Dark World!Discord to take back Destruction's power. Not to mention the fact that Discord ate his brother Destruction during the Draconequi-Alicorn War, and then became even more ridiculously powerful by eating his Father's avatar.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Being Nature's Fury, their morality is a bit different than mortals. According to Celestia, their form of compassion is based on memories as their Concepts mean most of them can't afford to have favorites when it comes to the mortal world (for example, Strife being Natural Selection can't afford to grow attached to one species and favor it when she's Survival of the Fittest).
  • Characterization Marches On: When the Draconequi were first depicted in Origins, they were essentially depicted as akin to Devils. Only barely kept in check by the Alicorns. With Havoc and Entropy in particular being portrayed as Gods Of Evil. Later depictions would emphasize their Dark Is Not Evil side and the more positive traits to their nature, showing them to be a force of GOOD in the world (albeit a very harsh one). This is Justified since their first depiction was from Celestia's (somewhat understandably) biased recount of past events.
  • Complete Immortality: The only known things that can truly kill an Draconeui are the power of Entropy or a Concept Killing Weapon. In the mortal world they're very hard to kill and can erase damage , and even then 'killing' them merely destroys their physical form and reverts them to their cosmic self, which is even more impossible to kill. And even then only a member of their family can safely do the job. However, neither of the known methods are recommended, as permanently killing a Concept means what they're Anthropomorphic Personification of never existed.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Their concepts are shown to have a good and bad side. For example, Anarchy embodies both rebellion and freeing ponies from oppression under government rule.
  • Everyone Has Standards: The one thing every Concept agreed on was that the Windigos had to be stopped before they wiped out all life on Equus. Despite not being allowed to directly interfere with the mortal world (for good reason), both families did everything they could to help the ponies get rid of the Windigos by any means necessary. Point-blank: the Draconequi are no strangers to butting heads with the Alicorns over the natures of order and chaos, but the last thing any of them want is a frozen world devoid of all life where neither can exist.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Despite their sometimes cruel nature, they ultimately DO want life to triumph and flourish, they just take a more "sink or swim" approach as opposed to the more nurturing approach of the Alicorns.
  • Jerkass God: Sometimes, their Blue-and-Orange Morality can make them rather harsh, but they're generally not INTENTIONALLY malevolent and desire for life to thrive as much as the Alicorns do. It's Discord who plays the trope straight, to monstrous degrees.
  • Literal Split Personality: They have an ability called Detachments, which is their analog to the Avatar's ability to create Avatars. They create a whole version of one of their animal parts that contains a component of their personality. Their sense of control over themselves is a major factor on how good at this they are.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Like Discord, they're all this, only with different animals.
  • Non-Linear Character: Normally exist outside of time and can travel up and down the timestream at will. Though the future is still in flux, they can see potential futures.
  • No-Sell: Attempting to use their own Concept against them will fail. For example, Rancor, Concept of Violence, cannot be harmed by physical attacks, and Pandora, Concept of Imagination, is immune to weapons created by imagination. For unknown reasons, this immunity does not apply to the Alicorns.
  • Physical God: They are quite literally forces of nature, and their power over the concept they represent is absolute, and they're capable of altering reality while outside of it. While they're nearly impossible to truly kill, even their mortal incarnations are incredibly hard to kill.
  • The Power of the Void: In contrast to the Alicorn's The Power of Creation, which they lack (they're only capable of rearranging matter). Pandora is the only Draconequus capable of creating in any form due to being Imagination, and judging by the Shadow of Chernobull, hers is imperfect compared to the Alicorns'.
  • Sentient Cosmic Force: They're not governing or controlling their concept, they are their Concept.
    Narrator, about the newborn Rancor: All violence everywhere was her. Every act of revenge was her. Every heart gasping for air in its own passions was her. She did not rule over them like a queen or attend them like a janitor, she was them. She had always been them. They did not fuel her existence, she was the source of their existence, to put it hopelessly crudely.
  • Time Abyss: Similarly to the Alicorns.

Draconequi Elders

    Havoc/Phobia/Mud Briar 

Havoc/Phobia/Mud Briar

Voiced by Adam Ferguson

  • 100% Adoration Rating: You know some of the damned souls in Pony Hell? Word of God says that some of them would try to avenge his death if somebody managed to kill him!
  • Abusive Parents: Loves to see his children's plans blow up in their faces and has no qualms about brutally punishing them himself. Though part of this may be more due to the Draconequi's Blue-and-Orange Morality, as their standards of 'fair punishment' seem far different than mortals and Alicorns, and he seems to have a decent relationship with Rancor. It's also stated he's still sore over Entropy erasing their son and he's more willing to listen to his children's backtalk.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: Subverted. Rancor and Discord mention he has a pony Avatar to use, but actually wants it to be scary for the ponies. Given what he represents, it's little surprise really.
    • He tries to actually do this trope while meeting with Celestia, Luna, and Twilight to clear up some misconceptions, but has some difficulty with it.
    • Phobia manages to pull it off though, though is also somewhat creepy.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Mass Hysteria and Fear in general. The survival instinct is stated to come from Him.
    • He's also the incarnation of Hell, and thus the punisher of those who live there.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: His teeth are roughly two times the size of Discord. To note, this is likely him choosing to be small his true form dwarfs universes.
  • Big Bad: Of the first part of Origins.
    • Disc-One Final Boss: Until his Avatar is mortally wounded by Cadence and eaten by Discord, at which point Discord took over. Technically speaking, he may have become this even earlier, as his Avatar went rogue and wasn't under his control anymore by that point.
  • Big Good: Despite his Concept, he's technically also this, as He is also fear saving lives. During the Finale Arc, he manifests as a foal named Phobia and gives the CMC some help dealing with what his son did.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Being Mass Hysteria personified, he considers watching terrified ponies 'fun family bonding time'. However, he does comprehend love and compassion though mainly that ponies fear for their loved ones. He's also the origin of the survival instinct and does enjoy watching fear save lives.
    • He explains later that he has many 'faces', some of which seem contradictory, due to being one of the fundamental aspects of creation.
    Havoc: I am a father, a tormentor, a trickster, a teacher, a punisher, a husband, a guardian, a watchmen, etc, you expect of the four fundamental rules of this universe to have only one face?
  • Brown Note: Looking at his true form will terrify ponies so badly they'll likely never sleep again. His voice will reduce them to horrified wrecks. And that's apparently the best case scenario.
  • The Chessmaster: Shows he's one heck of a benevolent one (no pun intended) with his actions to counter Discord during the Final Arc. He sets up for Button Mash to spread knowledge of RPG rules so that when Discord's endgame starts, those rules become part of the world. He then sends Button Mash home before it happens while he and Entropy set the CMC in place to be able to counter Discord's plans, resulting in Button being saved from corruption by his moon rock and getting video game based powers. He then pushes the CMC in the direction to meet up with him and learn the rules from him, as well as getting a powerful ally. It should be noted that he does all this while incarnating as a foal named Phobia and without Discord being any the wiser.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: It's stated by the Father of All Alicorns that despite what He personifies, He's NOT evil. He just has Blue-and-Orange Morality. It's stated the survival instinct comes from Him and that He does enjoy the fact fear saves lives. The fact that Dark World!Fluttershy recognizes he and the Draconequi are this earns His respect.
    • It's also pointed out that he's the Warden of Hell, not evil incarnate. His job is to keep the wicked trapped there and punish them for their wrongdoing, not cause the wrong doing that sent them there in the first place. Even his role in Starlight's Trial was simply being the tempter to test her resolve rather than genuinely wanting to doom her.
    • He's basically the Big Good of the Finale Arc.
  • Did You Think I Can't Feel?: Luna realizes that even if He doesn't show it openly, Havoc genuinely does love His children and is still grieving D___t's demise. When Bright Eyes actually tells him she's sorry for His loss, Havoc says its the first time anyone has ever told him that and accepts her apology for destroying D___t's Shadow.
    • When D___t's Shadow is destroyed, Pandora and Strife have a conversation right in front of Havoc about how D___t wasn't a good Draconequus without realizing that Havoc is actually crying inside at D___t's Shadow being destroyed.
  • Dimension Lord: Of Pony Hell aka Tatarus.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: Being he is Hell, he's capable of this, but only claims evil, unrepentant souls. He's once shown doing this to the Diamond Dog that murdered Shining's uncle Cool Sun and was killed by Shining Armor by swallowing the murderer's soul whole. Same goes for Smaug, the Nameless Filly and Tirek. He even did this to Paxphobia through his Mud Briar avatar in the epilogue.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Is the Anthropomorphic Personification of Mass Hysteria and so much as looking at him will leave a mortal unable to sleep for the rest of their life at best. Thankfully, he's so powerful and massive, entering the mortal universe isn't possible for him.
  • Emotions vs. Stoicism: Played with in regards to him and the Father: Havoc is Fear and very energetic, hammy, and emotional, while the Father is Wisdom and very logical, rational, and stoic. However, they each have some aspect of the other end of the spectrum: Havoc is a very intelligent long term planner quite capable of logical thinking.
  • Fighting a Shadow: Created an Avatar he used to face the Alicorns on the battlefield during the Alicorn/Draconequi War with only a fraction of his power, since he's normally too powerful to do that. It/He went insane and he lost control of it, however. Havoc isn't happy about it.
  • Friendly Enemy: With the Father of Alicorns, who he calls "Buddy". Downplayed, as they're not normally enemies at all, and more act as balancing forces to one another.
  • Genius Loci: Pony Hell is actually located inside his body. If he dies, Pony Hell will cease to exist.
  • Gender Bender: During Starlight's trial he took the form of a female Alicorn version of her.
  • Good Feels Good: After he accepts Bright Eyes' sincere apology he says that it felt good to do so.
  • Graceful Loser: After Starlight's trial, where he lost because she admitted her sins and wanted forgiven, he tells the Father it was fun acting like they're poker buddies before leaving to welcome Film Critique to Pony Hell.
    • He points out to Celestia, Luna, and Twilight that honestly holds no ill will towards the Alicorns for winning the war, and that Discord being a sore loser is something Concepts SHOULDN'T be.
  • It Amused Me: When Starlight asked the Father why Havoc pretended to have a Villainous Breakdown when he saw he was losing the trial for her soul, the Father responds simply that it amused Havoc to do so.
  • Jerkass God: Most of his kids got it from him. (Pandemonium appears to have gotten his Hidden Heart of Gold only).
    • He points out later that this is only one 'face' of him, and other aspects of his being are far more benevolent.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: The jerk part is just one 'face' of him, he can actually be rather civil and easy to get along with.
  • Hell: His domain.
  • Large and in Charge: See Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever.
  • Large Ham: Discord got it from Him. He especially hams it up during Starlight's trial, where he basically acts like a character from Ace Attorney.
  • Last-Second Chance: Offers Discord one during the reality reboot, not wanting to lose another son and well aware that the Final Battle won't end well for him even if he wins. He's genuinely upset when Discord refuses it.
  • Meaningful Name: In addition to his first name, the last name of the Draconequi (his children, and thus likely his) is Typhon, the father of all monsters from mythology. Alternatively, since he is powerful enough to No-Sell a Retgone from Entropy, he causes "havoc" for his wife's powers, making him the one person she is unable to truly erase and, by extension, the only one not afraid of her. That's probably why he's Entropy's husband.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: One of the only tips we've gotten as to what He actually looks like is that he has innumerable limbs, some of which are claws or tentacles.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Havoc is a pretty intimidating name. One of his titles is Emperor of Phobias, though he's also called Home For Infinite Losers. Given his personality, that last one is probably self proclaimed.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Is literally the God of this, being the Anthropomorphic Personification of Mass Hysteria and Fear. His symbol actually takes the form of whatever the viewer fears most.
  • Non-Linear Character: Like the other deities, only as a Top God he exists in every timeline at once.
  • Papa Wolf:
    • He has no qualms about letting his family get themselves in trouble, so long as they deserved it. Fauna Luster help you if you hurt them unprovoked, because she and her husband are the only ones who can.
    • It's also stated by the Father that He does hold it against Entropy that She erased their son and even cried when D___t's Shadow was destroyed..
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Has had a few instances of this such as letting Dark World!Fluttershy take Fluttercruel both due to her argument and respect that she feared for her daughter's safety more than she feared Him and accepting Bright Eye's apology for destroying what remained of D__t.
    • Appearing to Celestia, Luna, and Twilight to not only explain away misconceptions they had, but generally be polite and a good host towards them. He even tells Celestia and Luna their family ISN'T extinct like they thought it was.
    • He and Entropy will never disturb or otherwise interfere with mortal souls before they are born.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Relatively speaking. Between him and Entropy, he's the one most willing to listen to his children's gripes and actually does care about them. He also was willing to hear Dark World!Fluttershy out when she came to rescue Dark World!Fluttercruel from the Draconequi and handed Fluttercruel over without a fuss when she proved her point.
  • Running Gag: Him annoying Entropy, her erasing him from existence, then him willing himself back into it.
  • Sad Clown: Despite His happy go lucky personality and Large Ham tendencies (which are genuine as well), He genuinely does grieve over D___t being erased from existence and has never forgiven Entropy for it, he just doesn't show it externally. When D___t's Shadow was destroyed by Bright Eyes, he actually cried, but no one saw it except the souls in Pony Hell (which is Him) when it suddenly began to rain.
  • Satanic Archetype: Well, not exactly (that would be Morning Star), but his domain is essentially Pony Hell, and he has a chariot pulled by the damned ponies sent there.
  • Spiky Hair: Possessed by his Phobia avatar.
  • Take Our Word for It: His true form is never actually described except for very vague details such as him being a giant horned serpent and having innumerable claws and tentacles. Otherwise he's simply described as every fear that ever has, is, and ever will be personified. According to Word of God, he didn't want to give an in-depth description of Havoc as nothing could ever be scary enough to live up to what He is. Most pictures take this into account by being extremely blurred with no real details.
  • The Older Immortal: Is called an 'Elder' for a reason. He's been around for multiple universes' entire life span.
  • Time Abyss: Is older than the universe several times over. In fact, according to Razzaroo, he predates time itself.
  • Top God: One of four, the other three being his wife Entropy, and Fauna Luster and her husband, the Father of All Alicorns.
  • Troll: Seems to get a kick out of being this towards his wife, Entropy. Notably, he's one of the only beings in existence that can. Well, now we know where Discord got it. The big difference between him and his son is Havoc doesn't direct his love of trolling towards EVERYONE.
  • Villain Song: Has one called 'Here's To Chaos', a rewrite of the G1 villain Lavan's song 'Here's to Power'. Though, in universe, it's said Strife taught Lavan it as a tribute to Havoc.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: Word of God has confirmed that the same things that apply to the Father of All Alicorns apply to him. That on top of the fact merely looking at him is enough to render you incapable of sleeping for the rest of your days at best.
  • You Got Guts: When Dark World!Fluttershy entering Entropy's Realm for the sake of her daughter, He tells her she's impressed Him by doing so and thus he'll hear her out.


  • Abusive Parents: Allowed one of his sons to eat the other one, then fed himself to him. This is something Havoc is show having guilt for, as while he was no longer in control of the Avatar by that point, it was still his creation. When it resurrects, it instantly captures Discord and uses him as a living battery in the final battle.
  • Brown Note: As with the entity who created it, the Avatar's would drive any mortal who looked upon it insane with terror at worst and leave them with night terrors for the rest of their lives at best. Celestia has to quickly cast a spell to filter its appearance when it manifests in the final battle as the True Final Boss.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: The reason it ultimately went rogue: it became so drunk on the chaos of the war it went mad and Havoc lost control of it, at which point it began doing things Havoc himself would have never done.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The Avatar of ones and has many of their traits. As shown heavily in the final battle.
  • Fighting a Shadow: Was an Avatar of Havoc's sent to fight in the Alicorn/Draconequi War, so it being destroyed would have no effect on the real Havoc. Unfortunately for everyone, it went insane and out of his control.
  • Mad God: Went so insane that Havoc lost control of it. Despite only being an Avatar, it's so powerful it more than counts as a god in its own right. At least 1/3 of Discord's power, possibly more, came from it, and that was after it'd been mortally wounded and severely weakened.
  • Meaningful Name: Paxphobia comes from the latin word Pax, meaning peace, and is given the inuniverse definition of 'Fear of Peace.' It's an Avatar created specifically to fight in a war and continues to fight its war long after its over.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: As with Havoc, it has extra limbs. This is one of the few concrete details Twilight can grasp of it when it manifests in the final confrontation and Celestia has to put a perception filter around it, and he makes liberal use of them.
  • Not Quite Dead: Dark World reveals in a sense it still exists inside Discord, such as when it attempted to manifest on its own. It actually does manifest during the final battle of the main universe as the True Final Boss.
  • Rogue Drone: As its name suggests, it's an Avatar of Havoc's sent to fight on his part in the Alicorn/Draconequi War. Unfortunately for all involved, it went so insane that Havoc lost control over it and began doing things Havoc would have never done. It tries to manifest itself in Dark World Fluttercruel's defeat but is obliterated by the Elements before it can. It does manage to manifest after Nightmare Nhilis's defeat due to the marathon of things happening that negatively impacted Discord's ability to control it, becoming the True Final Boss.
  • Sanity Slippage: It became drunk on the chaos of the Alicorn/Draconequi War and ended up going very insane. By Draconequi standards. This was especially bad as Havoc lost control of it and all escape routes from the war had been closed at the time.
  • Super Toughness: While it deals serious damage, he's able to take multiple shots of the Elements and ultimately takes a Combined Energy Attack to destroy.
  • True Final Boss: Manifests after Nightmare Nhilis is beaten due to the marathon of things that happen to Discord during the final battle weakening his control over it and Destruction enough for the Avatar to break free and reassert itself as the final enemy.
  • Villainous Legacy: Was fatally wounded by Cadenza at the end of the war then eaten by Discord by its own accord, but is directly responsible for Discord's rampage by giving him the necessary power up to become the tyrant he currently is. It tries to manifest in Dark World, but is destroyed by the Elements while it's still forming and thus never gets the chance. However, the marathon of things that happen to Discord during the Final Battle results in Discord losing his control over it, and it manifesting when Nhilis is beaten to become the True Final Boss.
  • Villain Override: Tries to do this on Fluttercruel, but Fluttershy counters it.
  • Villain Song: Has one called 'Here's To Chaos', a rewrite of the G1 villain Lavan's song 'Here's to Power'. Though, in universe, it's said Strife taught Lavan it as a tribute to Havoc, which implies the real Havoc did sing the song elsewhere, as by the time the Avatar sung it it'd already gone berserk and out of his control.

    Entropy/Maud Pie 

Entropy/Maud Pie

Voiced by Heather Gold

  • Abusive Parents: Routinely imprisoned Destruction in a black hole just to build his addiction to destruction to it's breaking point. Though truth be told, it isn't really her fault, nothing really has any value to her due to what she personifies. That said, Strife and Rancor both seem to be loyal to her. It's later revealed that this was because Destruction not doing his job had catastrophic consequences and making him do it was the Lesser of Two Evils.
  • Amnesiac God: As Maud Pie.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Heat Death and Nothingness.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: She's described as being so huge, the pupil of her eye dwarfs Celestia.
  • Berserk Button: Stating anything about her except she exists, calling her a Draconequi, or that she looks like one, and actually being hurt.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: She's the embodiment of the End of All Things, thus nothing has value to her, even her own children, as all things are equal in her eyes. Even that is somewhat of an oversimplification of her morality.
    • It's also stated she has an understanding of love; love comes from nothing.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Her Mrs. Void avatar is turned into a mortal pony and seperated from the rest of her. However, said mortal pony is Maud Pie.
  • The Comically Serious: Is never played for laughs herself, but considering what her husband is like, their interactions are sometimes comical because of her seriousness.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Always yells "YOU DON'T EXIST!" before erasing someone or something from existence.
  • Canon Character All Along: Maud Pie turns out to be her mortal incarnation.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite what she represents and her general demeanor, Entropy is not evil. She has no desire for anything to end before its time and she also represents the end of suffering. The latter part was why she united with Fauna Luster against the Pain Monsters they and their offspring sealed away. It's also why she plays a major part in helping stop Discord's Rewriting Reality endgame plan. She's a natural part of existence and just as vital to it as her fellow Elders.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Due to being…well, an Eldritch Abomination, she didn't consider the Windigos would be destroyed, harming her in the process.
  • Dimension Lord: Of Oblivion, basically. Her domain is inhabited by those who have been erased from existence.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Stating anything about her in her presence other than the fact she exists is a crime punishable by being erased from existence. As is calling her a Draconequi…or saying she looks like one, because she came first…Basically, any slight she perceives as committed against her is punishable by this.
  • The Dreaded: The only beings that don't fear her are the other Elders, who are the only ones as powerful as she is. Even Discord seems quite afraid of ticking her off.
  • Emotionless Girl: As Maud.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Remember the Windigos? They're tiny pieces of her! And like the other Elders, every other alternate version of her is a part of the same person which means every Maud Pie is her.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Well, evil is debatable, but she considered genocide of the gods too extreme (which is why she erased D___t).
  • The Evils of Free Will: While she doesn't really do anything about it, she believes beings with freewill will inevitably destroy themselves. The fact that life keeps proving her wrong is one of the few things that annoys her. Though given this information came from Celestia, who doesn't have the most favorable opinion of the Draconequi, it's unknown how true this is.
  • Evil Matriarch: Treats her family as tools to be used and disposed of as necessary. Maybe. Given she's an Eldritch Abomination that the gods consider that trope, it's hard to tell.
  • Evil Virtues: Well, Evil is hard to qualify due to that whole "different morality system" business, but Entropy has no interest in Lying.
  • Face Palm: Has this reaction to Havoc pretending to have a Villainous Breakdown during Starlight's trial for his own amusement.
  • Fire/Ice Duo: The Ice to Fauna Luster's Fire. The Windigos, spirits of ice, are Entropy's creations, and Fauna Luster's Fire of Friendship is the source of power for the Elements of Harmony.
  • Hypocrite: For all her talk to Celestia about taking responsibility for and accepting the consequences of one's actions, she becomes unreasonable after her Windigo plan backfires. This is eventually negated, as Celestia didn't know the whole story and Cadenza reveals she did indeed accept responsibility, but had different reasons for desiring Ponykind be erased that are a bit less petty.
  • Genius Loci: Like Havoc, Oblivion is located inside her body. If she dies, it will cease to exist.
  • God in Human Form: Naturally, she's capable of assuming pony form whenever she pleases. It's revealed Maud Pie is a mortal incarnation of her, apparently resulting from her shielding the CMC from Discord's end game plan. The human version is implied to be the same thing, but likely has a different origin.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Is rather easy to tick off if met face to face, and her default reaction is 'erase it from existence'.
  • Ice Queen: Considering what she embodies, it's pretty reasonable.
  • I Love You Because I Can't Control You: The reason why she chose Havoc was because he was the only thing who didn't fear her, as said by Word of God.
  • Jerkass God: Played with. She's not easy to get along with, but she's actually more apathetic than an asshole.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her apathy and demeanor, she ultimately is benevolent. She is the End of All Things, but that includes pain and suffering, and she ultimately doesn't like others trying to end something before its time. She even votes to resurrect Rumors!Button as a reward for the CMC saving existence. She's also Maud Pie and normally uses that avatar when in her kinder moods. Maud's existence is due to Entropy Taking the Bullet for the CMC via her Avatar Mrs. Void to protect them from the Rumors' World-Wrecking Wave.
  • Lack of Empathy: See Blue-and-Orange Morality.
  • Large and in Charge: See Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: With Havoc. Which is actually a source of some comedy, considering they're Eldritch Abominations. That said, its stated she chose HIM, possibly specifically because he's one of the only beings in the universe to not fear her.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Is implied to have manipulated things to lead to the Alicorn/Draconequi War in order to bring on the end of the universe sooner. Subverted, in that Havoc reveals this was only Celestia's perception of her, and she actually had no intentions on ending the universe early, and actively dislikes those that try.
  • Mercy Kill: Her devouring a dead universe that was abandoned by the Shadow Who Makes governing it before the story reached it's conclusion is considered this, as such universes are universally considered worse than Oblivion, to the point even Discord views it as terrible. This is because in such worlds, Offscreen Inertia is played for horror and the ponies in those worlds are left doing the exact thing they did when the world died forever.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: Her reaction to Clover, Pansy, and Cookie (unknowingly) injuring her with the Fire of Friendship was to demand that all Ponykind be erased from existence. However, it turns out that this wasn't as much as an overreaction as much as it appeared; the Draconequi argued that Ponykind being able to injure one of the four fundamental pillars of reality could have catastrophic consequences if left unchecked.
  • Mother of a Thousand Young: Has shades of this, being the mother of the Draconequi despite, while they resemble them, is explicitly said to not be one herself, also created the Windigos from herself, and created Nightmare Legion from the shadows in her realm during the Draconequi/Alicorn War.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Both her real name and most of her titles. Especially "She Who Is The End Of All Things", the "Queen of Oblivion", and "The Anti-Mother of All Things".
  • Natural End of Time: Her role is to devour the universe when it reaches its natural death so a new one can be created in its place.
  • Never My Fault: She deluded herself into thinking the painful feedback from the Windigos was not an inevitable consequence of her actions, and demands an unreasonable restitution. Subverted, as Cadence's past self reveals she did take responsibility for it, the Draconequi merely felt mortals being able to injure one of the four fundamental forces of existence was a potential threat to existence.
  • No Indoor Voice: Hard to say given the nature of the flashbacks and who she is, but whenever she talks, IT'S ALWAYS TYPED LIKE THIS, just like her opposite number, Fauna Luster.
  • Non-Linear Character: Like the other deities, only as a Top God she exists in every timeline at once.''
  • Offing the Offspring: Erased her firstborn D___t because __ Called The Old Lady Out, and that the rest of the family know, but aren't allowed to ever talk about it. As it turns out, her real reason was because he was a Knight Templar who wanted to wipe out all the deities, which would've ended very badly for the universe.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Unlike most examples, this is literally her job as the Anthropomorphic Personification of the end of the universe.
  • Opposites Attract: She and Havoc couldn't be more different, but it's stated that she chose him so she has to be attracted to him somehow.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Votes to resurrect Rumors!Button Mash to reward him and the CMC for saving existence.
    • After Ungoliant tried eating Galaxia at the beginning of time, she punishes Ungoliant and hands her back to Azerhorse, stating this is why she chose Havoc and not Azerhorse as her mate.
    • She and Havoc will never disturb or otherwise interfere with mortal souls before they are born.
  • Power of the Void: Is the Anthropomorphic Personification of Nothingness, and thus has the ability to erase anything she desires from existence. Her children get this from her.
  • Ret-Gone: Has the terrifying ability to erase beings from existence. Neo Stream was one of her victims, but even Alicorns aren't immune. She can erase Havoc, but he just wills himself back into it. This happens so frequently it's basically their version of bickering Like an Old Married Couple.
    • She apparently did this to one of her children at some point. Who is only referred to as D____t, though the Draconequi at least remember said sibling, but can't even say the gender. It's eventually revealed she did this because he wanted to perform genocide on the Concepts, which would not have ended well for the universe, and Fauna Luster helped her do it because of the consequences of D___t winning.
  • Screaming Birth: Does not have a pleasant experience giving birth to Rancor (due to being the opposite of life and thus the act of creating is even more painful for her), to the point the universe quakes from it. Afterwards, she erases Havoc from existence (he wills himself back into it seconds later) for saying they might have to try again.
  • Straw Nihilist: Considering what she embodies, it's pretty reasonable.
  • The Older Immortal: Is called an 'Elder' for a reason. She's been around for multiple universes' entire life span, and was the one to eat them when they died of Heat Death.
  • Time Abyss: Is older than the universe several times over. In fact, according to Razzaroo, she predates time itself.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Is the most truly malevolent Draconequi besides Discord, though she does have some beneficial qualities such as desiring suffering to end.
  • Top God: One of four, the other three being her husband Havoc, and Fauna Luster and her husband, the Father of All Alicorns.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Undergoes one when three regular ponies stop the Windigos from exterminating all life on the planet, precipitating the Alicorn/Draconequus War (actually hurting her in the process).
  • * Yin-Yang Bomb: Can combine Her power with Fauna Luster to do something that was powerful enough to bypass D__t's ability to will himself back into existence if erased.


See "Antagonists" section.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Imagination, pretty much. This includes creativity and hallucinations, which is probably why she tends to accidentally drive ponies mad.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Shows up using Makarov's destroyed Paradox Engine as a portal to prevent Shining from killing Makarov (because he needs to DELETE Makarov to Set Right What Once Went Wrong) and proceeds to set off all the plot holes in Makarov's 'story,' allowing the damage Shining caused to his flagship to take hold and giving the allies a chance.
  • Big Sister Instinct: When she saw Discord seriously hurt in the war, she went berserk to protect him.
  • Cloudcuckooland: Her Realm. It's a nonsensical labyrinth inhabited by beings of fantasy such as Ms. Smartypants and the cast of Twilight and Shining's mother's novel. Given she's the Goddess of Imagination, this makes sense.
  • The Cutie: She easily has the Most Likeable Personality out of all the draconequi.
  • Genius Ditz: Despite being The Ditz among the Draconequi, she actually is rather intelligent about things pertaining to storytelling, as shown when she confronts her son, General Admiral Makarov and is able to point out nearly every flaw in his 'story' and use certain ones, such as him using an upgraded version of the Imagination Engine that let him out of her Box in the first place and his excessive amount of detail into his weapons against him.
    • And then there's her plan to counter Discord's endgame. What is it? Arrange for AK Yearling to be somewhere safe so she could be offered the chance to become the real Daring Do by merging with Puzzlemint's Shadow of Existence. This plan goes off without a hitch.
  • I Have Many Names: Desire and Pandora are her alternate names.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: See Big Sister Instinct.
  • Mad Artist: Not per se, as Imagination is her domain, but at times her inspiring does leave species crazy.
  • Mad Scientist: Has aspects of this, as, being Imagination, she has innumerable ideas and is compelled to try them. Word of God and her actions in story, however, imply she genuinely cares for her creations and is as horrified as anyone else when they go wrong. Most either stay in her realm or are sealed away in her box.
  • Meaningful Name: In addition to her real name, Word of God has revealed her middle name is Atë (that's pronounced "Et" by the way) (her last name is Typhon, just like Discord), the Greek Goddess of mischief, delusion, and folly.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: She is an draconequus after all. Anyway, she's got the left arm of a grizzly bear, her right arm is gnarled, green, and covered in warts, her left wing is that of a swan, her right wing is that of a flutterpony, her left leg belongs to a black cat, her right leg belongs to a duckling, and finally she's got the tail of a fox.
  • No-Sell: Makarov tries to kill her with his Desert Deer pistol. She prevents it from firing by pointing out he never thought of HOW it worked and proceeds to eat it when he keeps trying to fire at her. Justified, as he was trying to use Imagination against the Anthropomorphic Personification of it.
  • Nice Guy: It just serves to prove that she is the Token Good Teammate.
  • Pals with Jesus: She's the "Jesus" in question. After Shining Armor used the Blank Wolf to erase Makarov, one of her "children", from existence to stop from committing more misdeeds, she's on friendly terms with him to the point she seems to invite Shining over for tea in her realm while he's suffering from fever dreams.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Promises Story Belle that none of her stories will be forgotten.
    • At the end of the Wedding Arc, as an apology for Chrysalis' actions and a thank-you for dealing with her, she breaks Shining Armor's writer's block.
    • She promises Yearling that should she choose not to take Pandora's offer to become the true Daring Do, she'll still take very good care of her and make sure no harm comes to her.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: Gives one just before stripping Makarov of his Plot Armor.
    Pandora: Time to help end one disturbance by creating another disturbance!
  • Plot Hole: Is capable of invoking these as an attack. She does it to Makarov to give Shining and company a chance to stop him.
  • Shoot the Dog: Has no choice but to help Shining Armor erase Makarov, her child, from existence because of the threat he's become. Keep in mind, this is the Draconequus stated to be too kindhearted to take part in Discord's punishments and she had to help delete her own child.
  • Theme Naming: All the creatures that make up her body are animals that commonly appear in fairy tales and folklore.
  • The Power of Creation: Uniquely, she is the only Draconequus with this power, being the Concept of Imagination. Her siblings can rearrange matter into new forms, but she is the only one with the ability to create life.
  • Token Good Teammate: Seems to be the most genuinely good Draconequi. She has a habit of driving ponies insane trying to inspire them, but that honestly frustrates her to no end. Sadly she's also responsible for at least two monsters that threaten the end of the world as we know it.
  • Un-person: She has the power to erase all memory of a mortal pony's name and physical appearance, to the point that the afflicted mortal themselves cannot remember their own identifying traits. This power was used to punish the Nameless Filly for killing Cupid.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: She genuinely wants to do the right thing...but for some reason, everything she does tends to cause more harm than good. For example, she tries to inspire artists? They end up going insane. It's also implied she's accidentally responsible for the creation of Makarov/The Shadow of Chernobull, even if the Hooviets were the ones that let it loose, and is trying to help fix that one. She's aware of her status as this and quite frustrated by it.
    • She also created Chrysalis. Though in that case, Pandora wasn't responsible for the monster Chrysalis ultimately became and merely gave her life.

  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of, well, Destruction. Mass Destruction, to be precise.
  • Beyond the Impossible: He's somehow capable of destroying black holes.
  • Calling Your Attacks: While possessing Lioncord, he calls one: "LAST-DELETE-ALICORN-UNMAKER!!!"
  • Came Back Wrong: When Discord separates into his Detachments, Destruction's essence is reborn through Lioncord, but he's destructive to the point of being willing to kill most of the life on Equus to win a fight with Twilight, implying something is very wrong with him, and even Discord considers him worse than himself at that point and helps Twilight defeat him before reabsorbing him. Word of God confirms this was basically no different than D___t's Shadow of Existence.
  • Deader Than Dead: Word of God says that not even the Elders can bring him back to life. Subverted ultimately: Jiniri, as Concept of Wishes and Miracles can bring him back, and in fact was created for that specific reason.
  • Death by Irony: After he died he was completely destroyed, there is no way for him to come back to life. Or so it seemed.
  • Demonic Possession: His essence hitched a ride when Discord created Lioncord and possessed it. Or, according to Word of God, may have eaten Lioncord from the inside out when his essence was put inside of him.
  • Dumb Muscle: Most childish of the Draconequi, but also one of the strongest.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: His name is Destruction and he destroys things.
  • Killed Off for Real: Was killed and eaten by Discord, along with his power, making him one of the only one of the gods that's confirmed to be dead. Subverted, as Jiniri is capable of bringing him back to life.
  • Mad Bomber: His preferred method of causing destruction is to make things "go boom."
  • Meaningful Name: His middle name is Shiva, the Destroyer in Hindu mythology. His primary role is to destroy what needs to be destroyed so things can begin anew, which also fits with Shiva's role in mythology, who destroyed the world so Brahmā could make a new one in its place.
    • Consdering that it is his job to destroy things, his first name, Destruction, is also meaningful.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: He is a draconequus after all. Anyway, he's got the left arm of a gorilla, his right arm is actually an octopus tentacle, his left wing is actually a lizard crest, his right wing's a dove's, his left leg is a bull's, his right leg is that of a buffalo, and lastly he's got the tail of a monkey.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: At least according to Dalekolt. (He's in the upper right corner.)
  • Nuke 'em: Is capable of doing this due to his concept.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Even by his race's standards. He once destroyed a black hole! And he has no control over it, as if he doesn't destroy something, he becomes a feral beast that has to destroy enough to state it. This is the result of him, under normal circumstances, not wanting to do his job. Rejecting his concept essentially caused it to fight back and force him to do it, as otherwise things become too stagnant for life to actually progress.
  • Power Incontinence: He literally can't control his urge to destroy things, if he doesn't do it, it builds until he goes berserk and destroys everything in his path to state it. This can result in it building until he can destroy a black hole. The real reason for this is if it weren't for this impulse, he actually wouldn't destroy things as he should and inevitably cause things to stagnate. Since he didn't accept himself, it fought back and made him develop this impulse.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Is more childishly destructive than anything else.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: His 'Omega State', pretty much caused by a build up of his destructive power and impulses. He goes completely berserk and will destroy whatever happens to be standing in front of him at the time. This includes an entire civilization and a black hole (even Entropy was impressed by that). It's the end result of his dislike of doing his job, causing his Concept to fight back and make him do it. The alternative is things getting stagnate to a cataclysmic degree.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Literally. He doesn't want to destroy things, something is wrong with him that makes him need to destroy things, and he hates it. Oh, and Discord killed and ate him! Further more, what's wrong with him is he rejects his concept so his concept fights back to make him for the sake of the universe.

Voiced by Joe McCordnote 

  • Anarchy Is Chaos: Subverted. He is a Draconequus, and thus chaos, but he just wants a civilization with no leadership or class structure, not the absolute chaos Discord embodies.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Anarchy, Rebellion, and Freedom.
  • Berserk Button:
    • After Discord unleashed the Windigos, he drops his normally calm demeanor, ranting that had Discord not allowed the Windigos in, the ponies could have created a classless, authority free society: his dream goal.
    • He also seems perturbed by Discord's Evil Overlord tendencies, as the idea of an omnipotent tyrant ruling endlessly is the opposite of what he wants.
  • Badass Finger Snap: Like Discord, (and presumably the rest of his siblings) he can activate his powers by snapping his fingers.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: He went through a 'rebellious teenager' phase. He did so by apparently becoming orderly and wearing a business suit.
    Anarchy: We’re Nature’s Fury! How ELSE was I supposed to be rebellious?!
  • Delinquent Hair: This Alex-approved illustration gives him a black mohawk and Big Ol' Eyebrows.
  • The Gods Must Be Lazy: He is literally pretty lazy. He'll do his job, but honestly just wants to get it done and over with so he can go back to playing video games.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the Finale Arc, he faces Princess Erroria to stop her from attacking the CMC, and is killed. While only his avatar was killed, it still takes him out of the fight as concepts can't just create avatars whenever they want.
  • Immortal Immaturity: He basically has the personality of a lazy teenager, despite being zillions of years old.
  • Interspecies Romance: He's married to Nightmare Legion, an Alicorn formed from millions of Shadows of Existence.
  • My Family, Right or Wrong: He considered the fight for Ragnarok stupid, but decided to go with his family to do it. Somewhat ironic, considering what he is.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: He is a draconequus after all. Anyway, his left arm is a dingo's, his right arm is a raven's, his left wing is that of a dragonfly, his right wing is a vulture's, his left leg is that of a coyote, and his right leg is a fox's. Oh, and he's got the tail of a rattlesnake.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Well villain may be too strong a word, but he generally is lazy and wants to get whatever job he's been ordered to get done done and then goof off. However, if motivated he typically does get the job done.
  • The One Guy: Originally, there were four males to two females, but after Discord turned into an Evil Overlord not associated with the Draconequi (and Anarchy doesn't like him), Destruction got eaten, and ________ got poofed out of existence by Entropy, Anarchy is the only boy left among the Draconequi siblings. Then Rancor was born.
  • This Cannot Be!: Gives this reaction when he sees one of his champions (the pony version of Bane) beaten.
  • Torches and Pitchforks: Is apparently capable of inciting these kinds of things, as shown when an alternate universe version of him kicked on up to help Amicitia destroy the Rainbow Factory.
  • Trash of the Titans: Yes, despite being a Physical God. His personal dimension is filled with candy wrappers and soda cans. He could snap his fingers and make them soon as he finishes playing his video games.

See "Epilogue Timeline-Villains" section for additional tropes
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Revenge, Violence, and Passions. And eventually, Mass Destruction.
  • Blind Obedience: Still new to the family, she follows her Parents' orders without question. Of course, given the Unreliable Narrator that talked about them, this probably actually falls more into Undying Loyalty.
  • The Cameo: Appears in Melody's 7 Dreams/Nightmares chapter, having apparently been sent back to participate in the G3 Cosmic Retcon. According to Word of God, she went back to get Princess Rarity's autograph because she wants one from all of Melody's lives, as she's her favorite singer.
  • Meaningful Name: Her middle name is Adrestria (her last name is Typhon, like her siblings), who in Greek Mythology is a daughter of Ares and minor goddess of revenge.
  • Mood-Swinger: Of a sort. She swings back and forth between being an angry, vengeful, serious spirit and an over eager, happy teenage god.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: She is an draconequus after all. Anyway, she's got the left arm of a Tasmanian wolf's, her right arm is a moa's, her left wing is a pterodactyl's, her right wing is that of an archeopteryx, her left leg's a saber tooth tiger's, her right leg's a kouprey's, and last but not least she's got the tail of a shark.
  • Odd Name Out: Out of all her siblings, she is the first one to lack a birth name starting with 'D'.
    • It turns out she had to earn a name with the letter D by stealing Destruction's power.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: When first born.
  • Revenge: One of the things she represents.
  • Sixth Ranger: The youngest of the Draconequi and the only one born during the story.
  • Theme Naming: All of the animals that make up her body are extinct, except for the shark.
  • Tyke Bomb: Born to do a very specific task: steal Destruction's power back from Discord.
  • War Goddess: Not explicitly Warfare, but considering she's the Goddess of Violence and Passions, it likely falls in her portfolio.
  • Weapon of Choice: The spear that killed Venus' son, Cupid, given to her by Strife. Also can break bones by saying the names of the particular bones she breaks.


  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of something. Even he cannot say what it is for sure, but the closest approximation is the concept of willing things into existence via imagination or maybe even a total freedom of will (without natural restraint).
  • Big Bad: Of Bright Eyes' Gaiden story, at the end of which he tries to absorb her soul and potential concept in order to recreate himself.
  • Big Brother Instinct: A good explanation for the wistfulness of his younger siblings and his death. Didn't stop him from attempting to kill his siblings too.
  • Break Them by Talking: Nearly succeeds in doing this to Bright Eyes by posing as her Enemy Within and claiming that deep down she wanted the disaster to happen. Fortunately, the love of her friends and family was enough for her to see through his lies and defeat him.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Talked back to his mother, Entropy, presumably about one of the many things she hates. It was actually due to trying to convince her to go to open war with the alicorns and he desired genocide on every concept, including his own family.
  • Came Back Wrong: His Shadow of Existence, unlike most, seemed completely sentient and aware of who he used to be (perhaps due to his being a Concept), but also seemed to lack the intrinsic qualities of his true self (though the real one wasn't exactly a good person) and seemed completely Ax-Crazy. Of note, the real one seems to have been a Cool Big Bro to his family, while the Shadow considers himself the only sane being in existence. When actually shown during Tempest's past lives' story, he is indeed a very nice Fizzypop.
  • Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Essentially his Concept. This included being able to will himself back into existence like his father, which necessitated Fauna Luster having to help destroy him.
  • Cool Big Sis:
    • Gender-inverted; he was the eldest son of Havoc and Entropy, and seems to be sincerely missed by all his younger brothers and sisters. Even his father, Havoc, seems to miss him and is still upset Entropy erased him. He wanted to wipe out his siblings along with the rest of the deities, but until he crossed that line he seemed to care about them.
    • Although to some degree, Strife realized that he was not really a good Draconequi.
  • Deader Than Dead: Entropy erased him from existence. And then Bright Eyes destroyed his shadow of existence.
  • Dying Curse: Promises Bright Eyes as she kills him that no matter how many generations it takes, he will devour her and become a real concept again. Subverted in that she proceeds to destroy him completely moments later.
  • Evil Weapon: A sword of moths in Bright Eyes's head to fight one of butterflies. It turns out he actually had it, but he wasn't evil at the time.
  • Fallen Hero: Heavily implied. Word Of God says he had several mortal past lives, all of which he was as a selfless hero.
  • Final Solution: Desired to destroy all Concepts, his own family included. It's what got him erased.
  • Foil:
    • To Morning Star, with Morning Star hating mortals for their imperfections while D__t adored them and thought they were perfect as they were. Both of them sought to seek dominance over reality. D___t wanted to do so by abolishing Nature's Law. Morning Star wanted to take control of the existing structures and rule over it all. Fitting, considering their goals are almost parallel to how Discord and Grogar viewed each other in the Dark World timeline in wanting absolute order or chaos. When the two are shown together, they can't stand one another.
    • Also one to Nightmare Paradox. Both wanted to influence another living being to become what they wanted to be, and both have some degree of hatred for the gods and how the world is.
  • Godzilla Threshold: The prospect of him succeeding in his plans was so horrific for both the Concepts and mortals that Fauna Luster helped Entropy destroy him when his ability to restore himself to existent meant she couldn't do so on her own.
  • Grand Theft Me: His Shadow of Existence tried to absorb Bright Eyes' soul and its potential concept (which eventually led to Fluttershy becoming Princess Gaia) so that he could use it to reconstitute himself. She defeats him in a Battle in the Center of the Mind.
  • Intrigued by Humanity: He was fascinated by mortals and was intrigued with the things they could accomplish, despite having such short lives compared to the Draconequi and Alicorns. Eventually, this fascination turned into a plan to kill all the other gods so that mortals could have the freedom to mold reality as they saw fit.
    Cadence: The First Born of the Draconequi was delighted with mortals when they first appeared, not as pets or playthings, but inspired by all the great things these tiny creatures with their brief moments in the mortal universe could do, building on each other's songs, each note adding to the rest, growing greater and greater, the symphony always changing, growing larger, but always consistent.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: Bright Eyes finishes his Shadow of Existence off before he can complete his Dying Curse.
  • Kill the God: A deconstruction. He desired to do this, but if he had it'd have irreparably wrecked the universe, as killing a Concept ALSO destroys what they represent.
  • Last of His Kind: Fully intended to become the only Concept left in the killing his entire family and all the Alicorns. Entropy put a stop to that, with Fauna Luster's help.
  • Meaningful Rename: In an alternate universe where he won and succeeded in killing all the other gods, he renamed himself Ragnarok.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: He was a draconequus after all. But what animals made up his body will probably never be revealed. All we know is one of his arms was a canine of some sort.
  • Non-Linear Character: Before he was erased, as he WAS a Concept. Even after he's able to appear in the Spirit World before he was erased, but after her was from his fellow deities' perspective.
  • Posthumous Character: Was killed by his mother and Fauna Luster for calling her out before Generation Transitions or rather for him trying to kill off all the gods, which would've ruined the universe. All the information about him comes from Discord and his other siblings occasionally reminiscing about him. And then his Shadow showed up in Bright Eyes's chapter. He finally appears during the story of Tempest shadow's past lives.
  • The Paragon Always Rebels: He was beloved by his younger siblings, and considered one of the best. He also fell to evil and had to be destroyed all the other gods.
  • Reality Warper: Was one himself, naturally, but his Concept essentially allowed mortals some measure of this. His goal was to turn all mortals into this. It turned out he was an extreme example even by Concept standards, as he could will himself back into being even when Entropy did the job. It took her and Fauna Luster both to destroy him for good when he attempted mass genocide of the concepts.
  • Ret-Gone: Was erased from existence by his mother Entropy. Like his father, he had the ability to will himself back into being, so Fauna Luster ultimately had to help Entropy destroy him. Even when he appears during Tempest's past lives story, Fizzypop literally can't remember his appearance despite looking at him, showing even when he 'exists', he doesn't exist.
  • Riddle for the Ages: His true name has not and will never be revealed according to Word of God. It's meant to be an unsolved mystery.
  • The Unfavorite: It takes a certain amount of disfavor to have your mother murder you, while your father does nothing but remain complicit with the justification, "Children should never talk back to their elders." Though considering Havoc's personality, it's difficult to tell if he's just being himself or if he genuinely feels that way. According to Word of God, Havoc does sincerely miss him and has never forgiven Entropy for erasing him. When D__t's Shadow of Existence was destroyed, Havoc cried. It's eventually revealed to be far more complicated, as he was actually erased for attempted genocide on all deities, which would've ended extremely badly for the universe, forcing Entropy and Fauna Luster to destroy him to stop him.
  • Un-person: He was not quite Ret-Gone since his siblings still remember him, so their mother enforces the notion that he never existed. They never say his name nor his gender within an earshot of her, just underscores.
  • Villain of Another Story: He actually wanted to destroy all the alicorns in order to abolish Nature's Law. And he got erased for his proposition. Then he arose to become the Big Bad of Bright Eyes's last journey.
    • Hero of Another Story: Ironically enough. In his past mortal lives, he was a selfless hero in each one. In fact, he became the template for the "formulaic RPG hero."
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: His desire to destroy Nature's Law was out of a desire to give mortals complete freedom, but as Strife and Bright Eyes point out, this was not a good idea and likely would've caused an even worse version of what destroyed G3. Cadence even outright says that he did everything he did because he genuinely loved mortals more than anything.
  • White Sheep: Subverted. Initial impressions give that he spoke back to Entropy because she treated everything with such contempt. However, the real reason was because, he wanted to kill all the alicorns so that a freedom to mold reality as one sees fit would be totally achieved.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: According to Word of God, he saw himself as living in a universe were the gods making laws to govern reality was enslaving mortals (specifically one akin Shin Megami Tensei, mistaking the Father for YHVA), rather than one where those laws were in place to allow life to exist and prevent the universe from collapsing.

    Dragon Queen Tiamat 

  • Achilles' Heel: As immensely powerful and gigantic as she is, she's still not immune to Dragon Sneeze pollen.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Is implied to be the personification of the elemental force of fire, both by her own admission to Majesty and by her epitaph 'the Flame Named Ocean'.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Normal fully grown dragons in the My Little Pony world are Kaiju, Tiamat is their queen. The Hooviets and, much earlier, the Centaurs found out exactly why the hard way. She's implied to be immensely powerful even by god standards, as she was capable of curbstomping Ungoliant and even Discord had difficulty actually managing to do something to her in Dark World and the resulting creation Discord made her into (despite being a tea cup based dragon) was able to put up one heck of a fight with Nightmare Eclipse.
  • Battle Couple: With Bahamut during Makarov's endgame. Both of them decimated Hooviet airship fleets with sadness and fury.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Is surprisingly civil for a Dragon Goddess, to the point she and Celestia have polite conversation over tea during diplomatic visits. She also loves each and every dragon alive as if they are her children. The one time we see her get pissed off? She goes on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge that decimates the entire Hooviet Empire and ends up leaving the southern half of the empire a smoldering ruin. Tiamat might be civil, but she's not a deity to buck with.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: The embodiment of Fire and being one of the two oldest dragons in existence tends to give one an odd morality. Word of God even stated that she isn't a force of good, it is just that those that ticked her off happened to be mostly villains.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: Despite being capable of destroying an entire army singlehandedly, she's still a mother goddess and can be tender and kind. Just don't hurt her kids.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • Singlehandedly dished one out to the entire Hooviet army in the climax of the Hooviet-Dragon war. When Makarov's endgame kills thousands of dragons in the opening act before the intended actual payback on her own turf Draco Island, she is more than happy to repeat her actions.
    • A thousand of the Centaur Empire's best didn't fair much better.
  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: Despite... well, everything else in this entry, she's apparently pretty civil when not enraged, as she and Celestia apparently have polite conversation over tea when Celestia comes for diplomatic missions. Shining Armor wonders where they get a tea cup and tea bags big enough for her (and that much tea, for that matter).
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • She normally does not take issue with her children and other species killing each other, unless it's with a species she's made friendly relations with. However, driving her species to near extinction or killing large numbers of them will invoke her wrath, and it is a terrible thing.
    • She doesn't mind her children fighting and possibly killing each long as they do so honorably and in an actual fight. When Smaug lost a fight with two other dragons for their hordes, he killed them in their sleep and slaughtered their eggs. Tiamat drew the line at this and proceeded to banish Smaug, one of the very few times she's ever banished one of her offspring.
  • The Ghost: Has been referred to by Shining Armor and mentioned in both the Dark World Arc and an alternate universe, but never seen. Averted as of Celestia's side story while also making appearances in the Shining Armor Arc and the origin stories of Tirek and Majesty.
  • Good Parents: Loves her children (all of dragon kind), and sent Bahamut to go and check on all of them individually after the G2 Apocalypse.
  • Happily Married: To Bahamut.
  • Giant Flyer: She's gigantic by dragon standards, but a very adapt flyer.
  • Kaiju:
    • Even by dragon standards, she's gigantic. Her rampage against the Hooviets is described as putting a giant monster film to shame.
    • A reclusive fanart of her that was made canon by the author shows just how big she really is. That little dragon being held up by just the horns with only her fingers? That's Torch.
    • Word of Saint Paul even expands on this by stating that Tiamat can stand at the base of the mountain Canterlot is built on while Celestia stands on her highest balcony/landing platform in the palace just so they can look each other in the eyes.
  • Large and in Charge: When standing at her full height, she blots out the sun.
  • Mama Bear:
    • Her actual hoard is relatively small, despite her being the largest and most powerful dragon alive, as well as their queen. This is because she considers her true treasure all of dragonkind. The Hooviets tried to take some of her subjects' territory from them. Tiamat declared war and when her subjects began to fall in battle, she came herself and stopped (willingly) just short of leaving their capital a blazing crater, demanding a king's ransom for every dragon killed in the war.
    • Her overall mentality is pretty much this. While she respects Celestia and Luna for their might, the interests of dragons take priority over all else.
  • Multiple Head Case: Has five heads, each of which has their own mind. They never fight, however.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: The Mother of All Dragons.
  • Ironic Name: Is primarily associated with fire, but her name comes from multiple words for sea and is after a ocean goddess. This is lampshaded by her epithet 'the Inferno Named Ocean'.
  • One-Woman Army:
    • The Dragons were thinking of giving up the war against the Hooviets due to losses... Tiamat entered the fray and curbstompped the entire Hooviet military singlehandedly.
    • The Centaur Empire sent one thousand of their best assassins to kill her. She returned their skulls and armor. Note, the Centaurs had practically made dragon killing a sport at the time.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Is capable of leveling half a technologically advanced empire by herself and is implied to be extremely powerful even by deity standards.
  • Physical Goddess:
    • Her title full title is Goddess-Queen Tiamat and she's more than powerful enough to back up that claim. Celestia and Luna are the only beings to have ever earned her respect, and Celestia says that Havoc and Entropy are the only beings she actually fears.
    • Nightmare Banneret, Spike's Nightmare is said to resemble her and according to Word of God would become a Dragon God instead of an Alicorn if he were purified by the Elements of Harmony, implying she's an actual god. This is eventually revealed to be the case.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She decidedly didn't start as one, but she gradually did become more reasonable over time and is quite civil in meetings, particularly with Celestia. When she met Queen Majesty, she heard her out and once realizing who's baby Heathspike II actually was, was willing to help her through her Heroic BSoD and Survivor's Guilt.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge:
    • Against the Hooviet Empire after they stole her subjects' territory and killed many of them in a war. The country's military is decimated and half the country lay in ruin by the time she's done.
    • She and Bahamut do another one when Makarov's endgame murders several thousand of her children.
  • The Royal We: Played With. She refers to herself in plural, but it's never made clear if she's doing this or refering to her five heads.
  • Shoot the Dog: Admits that if it weren't for her treaty with Celestia, she'd have eaten Minuette to prevent the Master from ever getting loose. Minuette doesn't blame her.
  • Sizeshifter: Has the ability to assume a smaller, more practical size that doesn't require her lair to be rebuilt every time she leaves it... but she PREFERS being the size of a mountain and as a matter of principle NEVER EVER uses her power to reduce her size. In her heart of hearts, Tiamat loves creatures and other divine avatars having to look UP to her.
  • Time Abyss: Was present during the Second Age, as she's mentioned in Bahamut's appearance. This makes her at the very least over four thousand years old and one of the oldest living beings on the planet. It's revealed that she and Bahamut first became known during the time of the Centaurs, meaning she predates Ponyland and Pony Kind as a sapient species.
  • Teleportation: Is capable of using teleportation breath like Spike and does so to teleport Majesty and Heathspike II away after their meeting.


  • Accidental Hero: Ended up saving Clover from Fluffy the Terrible, sending the latter falling to his death, but was just stopping for a rest and happened to land in the right spot. He honestly didn't even know what happened and still might not.
  • Amnesiac God: Implied by Luna to be possible.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Is implied by his preference for storm and wind based abilities to be the personification of the elemental force of wind. While Loose Canon, he's also referred to as 'the Gale Named Whale' like his wife is dubbed the 'Inferno Named Ocean'.
  • Blow You Away: Shows this ability when on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge with his mate over Makarov's attempted dragon genocide.
  • Giant Flyer: Is gigantic by dragon standards and a very adapt flyer, capable of doing so very fast.
  • Good Parents: After the Tales apocalypse, he went to check on every dragon in the world to make sure they were alright and got to know them individually.
  • Happily Married: To Queen Tiamat.
  • Large and in Charge: Tiamat's mate and, while not as massive as her, still gigantic even by Dragon standards.
  • Papa Wolf: Is just as protective of his children as Queen Tiamat.
  • Physical God: Another Dragon God like Tiamat.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Of the two Dragon Gods, seems to be the more reasonable and understanding of the two.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Accompanies his mate on one after Makarov attempts genocide on the dragons.
  • Shrouded in Myth: Even in modern day, ponies seem to know less about him than they do about Tiamat.
  • Super Speed: Implied by his exit after accidentally saving Clover from Fluffy the Terrible.
  • Time Abyss: Was around during the Second Age, meaning he's older than the current civilizations and even Celestia, Luna, and Discord's mortal forms. It's revealed during Tirek's origin story that he predates Ponyland and Ponies being sapient.


The demigod alicorn of Spreading Love. He was killed by the Nameless Filly when she selfishly attempted to take her relationship problems on love itself, and his death resulted in the deaths of billions and his actions and memory being rendered moot. He is the son of Venus, the alicorn goddess of love, and Mars, a mortal stallion.

  • Actual Pacifist: Justified, as his Concept was Spreading Love, so to fight would be to go against his very nature. It's deconstructed when he didn't even put up a fight against the Nameless Filly, who succeeded in killing him.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of Spreading Love.
  • The Archer: As per legend, but it's stated he wasn't a good fighter.
  • Deader Than Dead: Was killed with the Concept Killing Spear...which also erased all the good he did in his life and caused a lot of beings to be Ret Goned.
  • Divine Parentage: Cupid's a demi-god through his mother, the Love Goddess Venus. His father was a stallion named Mars.
  • For Want of a Nail: Amicitia!Twilight's meddling produced another timeline in which Cupid had been saved by Turris from being killed by the Nameless Filly, preventing the cataclysm that resulted from his death.
  • I Should Have Been Better: In an alternate timeline where he lived, Cupid expressed regret that he was not able to spread love to the Nameless Filly, so she could be redeemed, despite all of his other accomplishments.
  • Kill the God: A pony managed to kill him...and it showed why doing this in the POV Universe is a VERY bad idea. His death erased more people than the G3 Reboot!
  • Killed Off for Real: A female pegasus did this using the Concept Killing Spear, destroying his Concept as well. His mother, Venus didn't take it well. Fortunately, this is subverted as Amicitia!Twilight Sparkle fixed things and made another timeline where Cupid would live.
  • Love God: Was the deity representing Spreading Love.
  • Nice Guy: As the demi-alicorn god of Spreading Love, Cupid is very compassionate. In an alternative timeline where he lived, he even spoke in the Nameless Filly's defense during her trial, begging his Elders to give her another chance, and expressed regrets for not spreading love to her sooner. Even the Nameless Filly herself was touched... though it was not enough to redeem her.
  • Non-Linear Character: Until his death, he most likely qualified.
  • Ret-Gone: Was erased from existence by the Concept Killing Spear.
  • Semi-Divine: Was a demigod, the son of Venus and a mortal stallion. One of his unique abilities as such was the ability to freely move between the mortal and spirit worlds.

    Mother Deer 

Mother Deer/The Tree of Harmony

  • Actual Pacifist: From the looks of it. She clearly detests just leading military action against her own kind and is never shown taking part in actual combat. She sits out the fight with Discord, though part of it is her and Discord's powers apparently interact 'like water and oil'.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Is implied to be filling in for Gaia (who didn't exist yet) as Concept of the Natural World and Organic Life, but her words and Word of God imply she's a deity in her own right (later revealed to be the Deer's Mother Goddess) and was merely 'subbing' for her. She's also the embodiment of Tree of Harmony.
  • Badass Pacifist: She never actually fights, but manages to get a captured Hooviet Rhino Tank's crew to pull a Heel–Face Turn by having a good talk with them. It's implied by world building parts that she helped the dragons strike the death blow to the Hooviets in the proper timeline simply by causing all the Dragon Sneeze Trees in the Empire to wither and die.
  • Big Good: For the Anti-Hooviet Rebels (and by extension their ally Shining Armor) in the Shining Armor Arc. Apparently becomes the ruler of Roedina after Makarov's demise. She also turns out to be the Tree of Harmony.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saved Bright Eyes from a pack of Coyotes.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in Bright Eyes' chapter of 7 Dreams/Nightmares Gaiden before appearing properly in the Shining Armor Arc.
  • Fertile Feet: Bright Eyes notices flowers growing where she steps.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Loves all life and teaches Bright Eyes the beauty of nature after saving her life.
  • Full Potential Upgrade: Can do this with the Elements of Harmony, though she intended to do so later until Discord forced her hoof.
  • Mind over Matter: Demonstrates this.
  • Mother Nature: Is one of her functions as being a mother of all life, though it turns out that she is taking stewardship of this role for someone else, implied to be Gaia.
  • No Name Given: Is unknown in her first appearance, but is later revealed to be named Mother Deer. That said, her true name is the Tree of Harmony.
  • Physical Goddess: Is to the Deer what Tiamat is to the Dragons. She's also the Tree of Harmony.
  • Plant Person: She's actually the Tree of Harmony in the form of a deer. She transforms into this form during Rumors to protect her subjects from Discord's endgame, as the rumors were after Mother Deer, not the Tree of Harmony.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Was present in the Second Age, meaning she predates Equestria's founding by several hundred years at least. She doesn't look it. She's actually as old as Ponykind.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: While the details are unknown, her words imply the Hooviets imprisoned her until she escaped.
  • Space Master: Shows this ability during the rumors, stretching her roots into other rumors bubbles to spread her reach to protect her subjects. Justified, as she's the Tree of Harmony which canonically has this type of power.
  • Time Abyss: While all Gods are this, she's been on the pony world since at least the Second Age, making her among the oldest beings currently alive. She was born in the same event that uplifted Ponykind.

Angels and Yokai

    General Tropes 
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: Mortis' angels of death, like their master, are Dark Is Not Evil.
  • Our Angels Are Different: There are three types of them: mortals who earned this status through great works, mortals who choose to take on a great burden after death for atonement, and beings exclusively created to serve their Concept. All of them ultimately aid the Concepts in their roles. Yokai are basically the same role for Draconequi. Both of them also vary greatly dependent on the Concept they serve, with Angels typically having uniquely designed wings.
  • Youkai: In this universe, they're the Draconequi equal of Angels.

    Starlight Angel 

    Spoiler Character 2 

The Blank Wolf

(See Shining Armor Arc)

    Spoiler Character 3 

Scootaloo Army of Awesome

An army of... well, Scootaloos. The thing is, each Scootaloo comes from a different timeline, created by the loops of Dark World.

  • 13 Is Unlucky: They left Scootaloo 1313 to watch baby Veritas. She ends up a Badly Battered Babysitter.
  • Badass Adorable: They're all Scootaloo as a filly, though most of them have experience of adults.
  • Badass Army: There's several hundred thousand of them and they're all quite combat capable due to most of them having been high ranking soldiers in Queen Cadence's army.
  • Me's a Crowd: They're an entire army of Scootaloos from different loops of Dark World.
  • Undying Loyalty: To the reformed Nightmare Manacle.
  • Walking Spoiler: Their true nature spoils a major plot point of the Finale Arc.


  • Ambiguous Gender: It's unclear if they're a colt or a filly, and may be neither.
  • Balance Between Good and Evil: Is Rota Fortuna's Angel of Balance and their job is to ensure that mortals are challenged in their lives so they continue to grow. As result, she's meant to prevent either the heroes or villains from having a completely flawless, easy time of things. However, it's noted that good and evil are just one of the things they balance, and they're more balance of growth.
  • The Power of Blood: Was created from Rota Fortuna's blood.
  • Reality Warper: Can change things to ensure both sides of a conflict have the possibility of failure so they have to grow and overcome challenges.

Outer Concepts

    General Tropes 
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Nyarlathotrot seems to be the only member who's genuinely evil, the others are so alien in morality that they can't even relate to each other.
  • The Corrupter: According to Word of God, they may corrupt mortals to be like them in an attempt to have 'family' that resemble them due to how alien they are from one another. The one exceptions are Ponythulhu, who has a wife and children who he relates to (which may be why he's the Token Good Teammate), and Nyarlathotrot, who due to his Hive Mind nature is his own family.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Most of them seem inspired by Lovecraft's work.
  • Lovecraft Lite: While horrifying cosmic horrors, they can still be defeated and the other gods seem to keep them from causing too much damage under normal circumstances. Ponythulhu is also genuinely kind and friendly. It turns out part of him being so nice is being savvy enough to know he's in this kind of universe.
  • No Body Left Behind: Their physical forms all disappear in some manner upon death, though the fashion in which they do seems to vary.
  • Persona Non Grata: Most of them are banished from the Pony POV Series multiverse by their parent for their part in Discord's endgame. Except Ponythulhu and Yog-Sogthorse, who had no involvement at all.
  • These Are Things Man Was Not Meant to Know: Their actual purpose is to be the dangers of the unknown so mortals have a healthy fear of it to keep their progress in check, presumably in part for this very reason.
  • Token Good Teammate: Ponythulhu is this, being genuinely kind and friendly.
  • You Cannot Grasp the True Form: Many of them have forms that appear to be constantly shifting and impossible to get more than a basic idea of what they look like.

(See "Antagonist" section for more details)
  • Archenemy: Seems to be one with Amicitia.
  • Author Avatar: Implied somewhat, he depicts himself as the outlet of the Shadows Who Make's dark side when talking to Amicitia.
  • Balance Between Good and Evil: Gives Amicitia this argument about why he's needed. She didn't care. It's later revealed his sibling Fillimon is the good to his evil. It's later revealed the actual balance between them is their Concepts balancing each other out.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Fillimon's Abel.
  • Chess with Death: In order to stop him from tampering with her affairs, Amicitia arranged for him to have a cooking duel with Celestia. He lost...despite the fact he cheated.
  • Dark Is Not Evil:
    • In a sense. While Nyarlathotrot himself is evil, his Concept still has it's place in creation. Darkness can be a constructive thing, as can horror and tragedy. It's just that Nythy desires too much darkness and no light. Some parts of his Hive Mind are noted as being actually good.
    • The Amicitia Visits Grimdark Worlds section, while somewhat Loose Canon, reveals some of his aspects are actually benign and more into well written tragedy and horror than HOW the story ends, and actively dislike the stuff the rest of their entity does. Just...well, being the same entity, they can't really do much about it.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Given his name and that he's one of Discord's cousins, this goes without saying. The brief description of him in the "Princess Twilight's Lightly Visits to Grim Worlds" depicts him as having tentacles. He's also a Hive Mind entity composed of at least a thousand different Avatars all of which are equally him.
  • God of Evil: Considering Amicitia stated he ruled over the Grim Dark worlds she saved and if Word of God is to be believed creates such worlds, he definitely qualifies.
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: His battle with Amicitia over the world of The Immortal Game has him do this and try to lead that world down a worse path. It's unclear if this is something she did often or not.
  • Hive Mind: His multitude of avatars form one, with each one fully capable of acting on its own while still being the same entity.
  • I Have Many Names: Over a thousand to be exact.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Early mentions of him are rather comical, mainly mentioning how he lost that cooking duel with Celestia. When he later shows up, he's anything but harmless and shows how dangerous the Concept of Tragedy and Horror can really be as he helps orchestrate one of the most horrific situations in the series.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Can't be much more opposite than literally representing polar opposite concepts.
  • Villain of Another Story: Seems to have been Amicitia's Archenemy, but we only see one real confrontation between the two that Amicitia ultimately won. Until the Finale Arc that is.


  • Animal Motifs: Wears a butterfly mask and turns into a swarm of them to teleport.
  • Author Avatar: Benevolent version. She's Nyarlathotrot's opposite, and thus represents the Shadow's Light Side.
  • Balance Between Good and Evil: Describes herself as the good to her sibling's evil, though unlike him she seems to believe good is stronger than evil. The actual balance between them is their Concepts balancing one another. Fillimon outright admits her Concept could be just as bad if there was no balance.
  • Big Good: As the personification of the Shadow's Who Make's good qualities, she seems to fit this.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Nyarlathotrot's Cain.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Is Nyarlathotrot's sibling, so is likely a benevolent version of this trope.
  • God of Good: Is Nyarlathotrot's opposite.
  • Good Counterpart: To Nyarlathotrot.
  • Light Is Not Good: Notes that her Concept could be just as destructive as her brother's if there is no balance between them, and some parts of her are just as dark as most of him.
  • Rousseau Was Right: Seems to believe in this, as she states that most of the Shadows are benevolent.
    Fillimon: That is the secret of the Shadows Who Make, Rainbow Dash. Some do sow destruction and suffering...but most wish to sow goodness and light. They wish to allow friends to grow, ponies to be inspired, and 'villains' to find redemption the right way. Heroes are allowed to be beacons of hope and villains are allowed to have long buried hearts that can be dug back up. This is the light I exist to foster to dark the dark my brother sows, the good to his evil. And the light will always be stronger than the dark.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Can't get much more opposite than representing polar opposite concepts.


  • Always a Bigger Fish: Bannerette counters his One-Winged Angel transformation by turning into his true form and ultimately kills him.
  • Combat Tentacles: Has them, likely because he is a member of Nyarlathotrot and Ponythulhu's family.
  • Determinator: Credit where it's due, he's quite determined to get a Rarity to be his 'mother' and let him into the world.
  • Eldritch Abomination: His true form has very little concrete about it, though he is mentioned as having wings and a skull for a head. Justified, as he's Nyarlathotrot's sibling.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Downplayed, but it's implied Bannerette killed him by crushing his skull with a Finishing Stomp.
  • God of Evil: Refers to himself as the Anthropomorphic Personification of Sadomasochism.
  • Kaiju: His true form is of this scale.
  • Killed Off for Real: While he's a deity and thus it didn't truly end him, Bannerette killing him burned up his one mortal life in the POV Prime universe, making him this trope for all intents and purposes.
  • No Body Left Behind: His corpse dissolves into black smoke upon death.
  • One-Winged Angel: Spends a large part of his first appearance as a life sized doll of Pinkie Pie before revealing his true form.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Calls Banerette a lamer version of him, since Abandon actually managed to win a few versions of Rarity over before Amicitia or someone else stopped him, while Banerette failed to win a single Rarity even with six others helping him.
  • Skull for a Head: One of the few concrete things mentioned about his true form.
  • Transplant: Originally from the ask blog Lil Miss Rarity.
  • Villain Team-Up: Shows up as part of one with his cousin, though he's a far lesser threat and doesn't last nearly as long.
  • Yandere: For some reason, he's obsessed with Rarity and has been wandering worlds trying to corrupt its version of Rarity, only to be foiled each time.


  • Composite Character: At least in the Pony POV Series, the Puppeteer is just another mask worn by the the Beldam
  • Defiant to the End: When her avatar is defeated, Flash Sentry's group attempts to interrogate her. She instead mocks them and says they are doomed before expiring.
  • Expy: Of the Other Mother from Coraline.
  • Helping Hands: Her severed arm tries to strangle Flash Sentry.
  • Marionette Master: Uses strings and chains to control people. She can also use them to restrain and strangle them.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Her avatar is described as a cross between a pony and a Giant Spider, with human hands.
  • Squishy Wizard: Her avatar seems to lack much physical strength and fighting skill, being intended to remain invisible in the background while she controls things with her strings. Once her puppet strings are defeated, she's easily beaten to death.


  • Papa Wolf: When he realized that his potential banishment would most likely extend to his children, the Deep Ones, he came up with a solution that would make them so embedded in the timeline that they couldn't be removed by anything, not even his Elder.
  • Xanatos Gambit: He knew all along how foolish the Rumors plan was, and that he, Nythy, and all the other Outer Concepts were most likely to be banished. So in his fight against King Leo and the Sea Ponies, he insured that his children, the Deep Ones, will be so embedded in the timeline to where they can't be removed. King Leo was admittedly impressed.


  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Applebloom compares her to a tornado or a flood. She isn't malicious or sadistic, she's simply more akin to a natural disaster in how she perceives mortals normally.
  • Creating Life: Is notable among her family for having this ability.
  • Eldritch Abomination: As with the rest of her kin. When seen, she looks like a gigantic moth-like beast with goat-legs in place of insect one, anywhere between one to three heads (which could either be goat's or dragon's), and Too Many Mouths. Just looking at her is confusing. She also created all the Rumors Parasites.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Sort of. Her offspring, the Rumors Parasites, are the major threat of the Rumors Arc, but she herself isn't openly antagonistic. She merely gave Nythy and Discord a weapon to use.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Her mortal form is sliced in half by the Moonpearl's Wave-Motion Gun and a Sonic Rainboom shockwave from Rainbow Dash defeating her Enemy Without.
  • Mama Bear: Doesn't like others harming her children, at all. Though according to Word of God, she also doesn't care if her children fight with one another such as the positive Rumors conflicting with the negative siblings.
  • Mother of a Thousand Young: A ponified version of the Trope Namer. Her Dark Young even appear at one point and all the Rumors Parasites are her offspring. She's also the only one of her family who is capable of creating life, though Word of God says she still needs something to bring life to.
  • This Cannot Be!: Has this reaction to her Avatar being destroyed by the Moonpearl with help from Rainbow Dash's Sonic Rainboom.
    Shub: ... I am an outer-concept... how was one of my avatars banished by... what are you little ponies?!
  • Too Many Mouths: One consist thing she's described with is having mouths in places there shouldn't be and more than one.
  • What the Hell Are You?: Her last words before her Avatar dies is asking the crew of the Moonpearl this in disbelief they managed to kill her.


  • Beware the Nice Ones: Don't knock over Ponythulu's cookies! In fact, this trope is the entire reason his Parent doesn't care about his benevolence: ponies are still scared of him, just more afraid of inciting his wrath.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite being both Discord's cousin and a ponified version of Cthulhu, he's actually pretty nice and doesn't really seem interested in doing anything remotely evil.
  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: Is surprisingly nice for being... well, Cthulhu as a pony, and even Twilight admits he deserves to be treated nicely.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Like the rest of his family. He's based on Cthulhu, but like Fillimon, he's a benevolent example of an Eldritch Abomination, being bizarrely polite and well-mannered.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: It seems his whole purpose in the story is to provide this for the Dark World.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Enjoys baking cookies (which apparently turn anyone who eats them into Deep Ones) and when summoned by a bunch of pony cultists, he appeared wearing a pink bathrobe with accompanying bunny slippers.
  • Spanner in the Works: Unintentionally. It foils a cult's plot to dominate the world by assuming the ones who summoned him wanted to be friends and give him gifts. Said cult didn't take it well.
  • Token Good Teammate: The only one in his family who isn't outright malevolent or unintentionally evil. The other one would be Fillimon.


  • Animalistic Abomination: An Eldritch Abomination in the shape of a gigantic spider.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of hunger. According to Rota, some timelines have Chrysalis and her fight for it.
  • Auto Cannibalism: According to Rota, one potential fate for her is her eating herself.
  • Beast of the Apocalypse: She will herald the end of time by consuming Galaxia, who is the Stars. However, what happens after will also lead to the rebirth of the universe with the next Big Bang.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Apparently once tried to eat one of Tiamat's heads. Tiamat showed why spiders and flame don't mix.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Will apparently eat anything that she so much as sees. She very much desires to eat Galaxia, and may do so at the end of the universe.
  • Giant Spider: At least what she looks like.
  • Prophecy Twist: According to Rota, while she is destined to eat Galaxia in several lines, things don't go well for her after that and Rota even says Galaxia may survive after her sisters kill Ungoliant.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Has been perusing Galaxia with intent to eat her since before the beginning of time.


  • All Love Is Unrequited: Courted Rota Fortuna, but she turned him down. Subverted in that Pandora may have caught him on the rebound.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Apparently is a mass of sapient eyeballs.
  • Monster Progenitor: Sired a pair of sons with a madmare akin to The Dunwich Horror in a Loose Canon short, one of which can pass for a normal person with concealing clothing while the other is an invisible giant horror.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Has little effect on the overall story directly and appears rarely, but is the one who found Cadenza's husk and took it to Pandora, resulting in Chrysalis' birth.
  • Token Good Teammate: Relatively speaking. Like Ponythulhu, he had nothing to do with the Rumors Arc and seems relatively benign. As such, he wasn't banished from the Pony POV Multiverse. While a Loose Canon story shows him having children with an insane mare that do go on to be a massive threat, he just sired them and seemed to have no real say in what they did.


  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: It doesn't care about good or evil, only that its family serves its purpose as the embodiment of 'fear of the unknown'. It gets clopped off at Nythy and his siblings that aided him not because of their Evil Plan, but for shaming the family by exposing themselves so they could be defeated rather than remaining unknowable things. It is also perfectly fine with Ponythulhu being nice because everyone still fears clopping him off.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: It's the single parent of the Outer Concepts and a horrifying, insanity inducing entity... but it's ultimately not evil. Or really good for that matter. It and its family's actual roles are to be the 'fear of the unknown' to make sure mortals are cautious in their progress instead of being reckless and stupid in it. Azerhorse is more neutral than anything, as it never does anything intentionally, including the creation of its own offspring. Ironically, the two times it ever does something on purpose consist of banishing most of its children from the Pony POV branch of the multiverse for eight billion years as punishment for humiliating their family, and voting to allow Button Mash to be resurrected after his Heroic Sacrifice (though its reasons are unknown).
  • Eldritch Abomination: As to be expected given it's offspring.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Subverted, while it created Nythy, it was a complete accident and it doesn't seem responsible for anything the Spirit of Grimdark does. It's ultimately neither good nor evil and doesn't give a darn about what they do. It actually ends up inverting this trope when it punishes Nythy in the end.
  • Monster Progenitor: Is the parent of Ponythulu, Nythy, Abandon, and their siblings.
  • Mouth of Sauron: Has a stallion that it can speak through. It can speak itself, but seems to prefer to communicate in this way, even to its own children.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Its children know he's royally clopped off at Nythy and some of his children bringing shame on the family because the 'blind idiot concept' actually speaks.
  • Orcus on His Throne: As with its inspiration, it never does anything nor speaks, and created its children on accident. When it actually speaks and decides to punish Nythy and the rest of his children involved in Discord's endgame, its children have a Mass "Oh, Crap!". The other Elders are shocked when it speaks to vote, "Yes," to resurrecting Button Mash as a reward for his Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Parental Neglect: Even more so than Entropy. Justified, as he is pretty much the "Blind Idiot God" after all and his children are happy he pays them no mind. The fact he actually proceeds to scold them realizes he's mad to the point of lucidity.
  • Pet the Dog: Surprisingly enough. Azerhorse is the embodiment of the primal force of Eldritch Abomination status. Thus, it doing anything clearly on purpose are extensively out-of-character. What is the second thing we see him do on purpose? Vote to bring back Button Mash to life. While his first purposeful action has an explanation behind it (because of their job), here it seems that Azerhorse had no reason to do this and we don't know why.
  • Truly Single Parent: Notably the only Elder to not have a mate and to create its offspring purely on its own. Ironically, it created its children by complete accident.
  • Top God: Of Nythy and Ponythulhu's family, being their Elder.

How well does it match the trope?
