Friends, Family, and Associates of the Lunaverse Six

    open/close all folders 

    Amethyst Star 
Amethyst is a Unicorn jeweler who prefers the nickname "Sparkler" amongst those she likes. She's Dinky's half-sister on their father's side.
  • Broken Bird: victim in her parents' messy divorce
  • Fire-Forged Friends: In a sense, with Dinky Doo, her half-sister. The two are both innocent victims of a scandal involving their parents, and the shared pain - and opening up to each other - seems to have brought them closer together
  • Friendly Address Privileges: Only her friends call her Sparkler. Which works as a sign of warming terms between her and Ditzy, when Ditzy calls her that. It's still on a bit uncomfortable territory, however.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: A conversation with Diamond Tiara and her unusual priorities leave Sparkler with this feeling.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Sparkler"
  • We Used to Be Friends: She and Trixie used to hang out back in Canterlot. Trixie at least considered her a friend.

    Berry Punch 
An Earth pony mare and Cheerilee's sister. She owns a soda shop and bar, though she's also something of a social alcoholic.
  • The Alcoholic: A mild example. She's fine normally, but she tends to lose control at parties.
  • The Mentor: To Carrot Top, for the farm competition. As she explains, Carrot Top can farm, but Berry Punch knows how to put dishes together.
  • Popularity Power: Applejack paid bitterly for publicly insulting Berry's profession, as Berry is the town's most popular party animal right along Pinkie.

    Bon Bon 
An Earth pony mare working as an confectioner. She's also Lyra's marefriend.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: While usually nice pony, she can be pretty temperamental when stressed enough. She's also rather protective of Lyra. "Helping... Hands?" turns out to be a very bad day for her.
  • Break the Cutie: She was kidnapped by Corona, along with several others. It left her completely terrified of Celestia in any way shape or form.
  • Casual Kink: She and Lyra occasionally do things to "spice up" their already vigorous love-life. Lyra draws the line at being turned back into a human for experimentation.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Known each other since childhood, hooked up as teenagers.
  • Insane Troll Logic: When making brownies, she demands brown eggs, despite Lyra and the farmer she gets the eggs from pointing out it doesn't make any difference.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Lyra neglected to mention the Bearer's temporary alliance with Corona at Tambelon. As a result, Bon Bon has several panic attacks on seeing Corona, since she thinks the mare is still the murderously angry mare she was when she got out of the sun.
  • Muggle: Bon Bon is an ordinary confectioner, and is actually more than a little terrified at the thought of Lyra going out to fight evil, especially since she's afraid one day Lyra might not come back.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Word of God states Bon Bon is Lyrasexual and wouldn't care about what gender she is.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Out-of-universe. Bon Bon's name was spelled "BonBon" throughout early Lunaverse stories, while later ones use "Bon Bon" instead (Word of God is that RainbowDoubleDash simply didn't like how spellcheck tends to highlight the first "bon" in "Bon Bon", but he got over it). Some stories instead use "Bonbon" or "Bon-Bon".
    • The name of her candy store is also constantly changing: The Confectionarium or Bon Bon's Bon Bons are both used.

    Davenport and Tin Taylor 
A pair of married Unicorn stallions who are Lyra's adoptive fathers. Davenport runs Quills and Sofas, while Tin is a construction worker.

    Dinky Doo 
Ditzy Doo's young Unicorn daughter. She's wise for her years, but is still fundamentally a kid. She works at Fluttershy's cottage on weekends.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's normally cheerful and good-natured, but The 'Ling from Another World shows what happens when Dinks loses her temper, at Pipsqueak no less, for lying to everypony. She really doesn't like ponies lying.
  • Cheerful Child
  • The Cutie
  • Cute Witch: Friendship is Magic, so her mark in making friends also lets her cast just about any kind of spell.
  • Future Badass: In the questionably canon story, "I'll See You Soon". She's been mentored by both Trixie and Twilight and seems to have the raw power of Twilight coupled with the innate understanding of magic possessed by Trixie, as evidenced by her casually traveling back in time to ask for marriage advice. She's also apparently close friends with Princess Celestia. No, you read that right.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She doesn't like sharing Trixie's attention. Trixie notices, and is worried she might be a bad influence on Dinky.
  • Kid Sidekick: Trixie's little assistant in her stage magic shows.
  • Large Ham Title: Has gone by "The Great And Powerful Dinky" a few times.
  • The Leader: Type II/IV hybrid among the "Foal 6" in Foalish Misadventures, charismatic enough to get the aid of children who otherwise wouldn't have anything to do with one another, and levelheaded enough to identify the problem and keep them on task.
  • Magnetic Hero: Able to befriend virtually everyone she meets. She even gets a cutie mark in making friends.
  • The Power of Friendship: Played for laughs during "Foalish Misadventures" as every time she tries to evoke this trope, the other foals make mention of certain incidents where they worked together to accomplish things and failed anyway. She changes her tune a bit and says that friendship can make almost anything possible.
  • The Power of Hate: Uses hate, alongside Pipsqueak, Twist, and Snails, to defeat the changeling in The 'Ling from Another World
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: Dinky's no genius, but she's really mature for her age. Usually.

A Pegasus mare whose real name is "Fluttershy Posey", making her related to the Night Court noblemare Fragrant Posey. Like in canon, she's an animal caretaker and extreme introvert, but she's friends with Ditzy, Dinky, and Rainbow Dash.
  • Blue Blood: She's nobility, owing to being the daughter of wealthy Pegasus industrialists. However, she chose to live on the ground as an animal caretaker.
  • Broken Bird:
    • Just as in the Mane Six's world, Flight School was a never-ending source of torment and misery for the poor dear. Based on her terror that her Crash-Into Hello with Thunderlane will lead to another round of mockery despite his probably thinking that she's an unusually shy tourist, she still bears the scars.
    • Whatever happened to her when she tried to fill in for her aunt in the Night Court left her so broken that even years later just hearing the words "Night Court" sends her into a panic attack.
  • Character Development: Eventually grows more comfortable around Carrot Top after the latter gives her the antidote for Poison Joke. Later, in Tales of Ponyville, she not only allows herself to be taken out to the spa, but starts to develop a friendship with Rarity without the aid of one of her existing friends. And in Season 2 in A Concert For Ponyville gathers the courage to perform in the concert with her birds and Octavia.
  • Friend to All Living Things/Nice Guy: Implied in Return of Tambelon to be just as kind as her canon counterpart.
  • The Mentor: It's implied in Return of Tambelon that she helped teach Ditzy Doo how to be kind.
  • Odd Friendship: "The 'Ling From Another World" implies she and Snails have one.
  • Secretly Wealthy: Daughter of a rich and influential industrialist family, who chose to live quietly on ground as a animal caretaker. Her parents support her financially.
  • Shrinking Violet: Up to Eleven. RDD designed her "basically the same, but without Flutterbitch", thus lacking all of her canon assertiveness. She's now practically devoid of all social interaction except Ditzy, Dinky and Rainbow Dash.
  • Trauma Button: "Night Court". The details of exactly what happened when she served as her aunt's Night Court proxy for a summer are still vague, but it's implied that it's what partially turned her into the Shrinking Violet she is now. Her trauma was so bad that even mentioning it in earshot will make her have a panic attack, and Fragrant Posey cut ties with a fellow noble for suggesting that she force Fluttershy into a political position befitting her status.

    Grinding Gears 
An Earth pony inventor who's friends with Cheerilee. Unfortunately, he's not very bright, at least in the conventional sense.
  • Ditzy Genius: Grinding Gears is a genius. He is also ludicrously naïve, and clueless, believing Trixie's objections (that golems were always dangerous and destructive) might have been because he was an earth pony... and didn't realize why she might've taken offense at that. He also gives the map to his assistant... and forgets where they were supposed to meet up.
  • Exact Words: Told Cheerilee he wasn't dating anyone when they first met.
  • Too Dumb to Live:
    • First, he comes up with a design for an improved model of golem, brushing off all those other "incidents" as the result of negligence. He then proceeds not to make sure the new design will avoid anything similar.
    • During the design process, at no point does he submit the designs for inspection by competent, qualified officials.
    • He designs it to be able to absorb ambient magic, to speed up recharging time.
    • While designing it, he gets frustrated with a difficult design component, unaware golems take on the emotions of those designing them.
    • And to cap it off, rather than having it controlled by a scroll or a painted-on word, he carves it into the design, meaning it can't be easily removed. And what word is it? "Live", which the golem takes as an immediate excuse to go on a violent rampage.

    Pokey Pierce 
A Unicorn stallion who serves as Trixie's secretary/assistant. He shall pierce the Heavens with his horn!

A Unicorn colt and Raindrop's little brother. He idolizes Trixie due to her magic shows.
  • Adorkable: The way he looks up to his big sister in Griffin Over The Line is just precious.
  • Bug Catching: His primary hobby.
  • Friend to Bugs: To astounding levels. And anything small and wriggly, really. At one point, he even managed to charm a tarantula. And he eventually manages to make friends with a changeling.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Ocellus, natch.
  • Genius Ditz: While appearing kinda daft, Snails has shown a surprising knowledge of botany and other wildlife. Justified as he spends a lot time in the woods, and Raindrops has made sure he knows about dangerous and/or poisonous plants and animals.
  • Gonk
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: In a farming community like Ponyville, Snail's ability to communicate and negotiate with insects makes him worth his weight in silver bits.
    • His big heart allowed him to look past Ocellus' actions and decide to save her life.
  • Hero-Worshipper: He idolizes Trixie.
  • Hot for Teacher: Openly admits to finding Trixie hot, though that was before she tutored him.
  • Morality Pet: He is this for Ocellus. Left to her own devices, Ocellus wouldn’t think twice about doing things like eating pets or draining all the love from a pony, rendering them her enthralled zombies, if it was convenient for her to do so. But Snails is able to convince Ocellus to not act on some of her baser impulses.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: He'd love to flood his whole home with bugs and he dreams of making them even bigger.
  • Odd Friendship: With Ocellus, a changeling drone who hunted him and his friends one Nightmare Night. She apologized.
  • Photographic Memory: Literally, as he learns a spell from Trixie that lets him take mental "photographs" and perfectly recall them for about a day, though he can only hold three such memories.
  • Related in the Adaptation: He's related to Raindrops here, when there was no such indication in the canon show.
  • Secret Keeper: At the moment, Snails is the only pony who knows who Sprite really is and where she's really from.

    Twilight Sparkle 
A powerful Unicorn mare and magical prodigy of immense power and knowledge. Like her canon self, she has no social skills to speak of (but she is starting to get better). She was formerly wanted by the law of Equestria for wrecking Ponyville, and is currently serving a term of community service as the town's librarian. She's the younger sister of Shining Armor.
  • Accentuate the Negative: When trying to explain to Spike why Trixie and the rest of the Luna Six aren't worthy bearers of the Elements, Twilight lists all of their flaws while blanking out on any sort of positive traits they might have.
  • Accidental Public Confession: In her shock at the climatic events of Boast Busted, she blurts out that she summoned the Ursa Minor to Ponyville just to get revenge on Trixie in front of everypony present. Public opinion promptly turns against her.
  • Adaptational Villainy: The whole Lunaverse basically started with the switch in roles of Trixie and Twilight, though with the slight difference that Twilight deliberately seeks out Trixie to criticize her.
  • Anti-Villain: Despite the antagonistic role she has in the Lunaverse, she's essentially a well-meaning pony who's just misguided by her mechanical worldview and inability to see the other side of the coin.
  • The Atoner: After Crisis on two Equestrias.
  • Big Brother Worship: Her respect for Shining Armor is not only why she selected Silverstar as her 'superior' element of Harmony, it's why she rejected the idea that some lazy musician could possibly be the Element of Loyalty when someone like her BBBFF would be a much better fit.
  • Break the Haughty: Her time in the Mane Six's world makes her realize that it could just be that Trixie just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
  • Broken Ace: Probably the strongest unicorn sorceress in whole Equestria. She is also socially inept and has no life outside studying, and more or less cares only about learning even more magic.
  • Broken Pedestal: Was actually looking forward to meeting the bearer of the Element of Magic... until she actually met Trixie.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Played with. When Twilight finally comes to live in Ponyville, she's convinced everypony there will hate her. Turns out that Ponyville gets attacked by monsters so much, though, that nopony really cares all that much, and the fact that she's actually come back to try and make amends actually puts her a leg-up over some of the other things Ponyville's had to deal with
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: During her official "Welcome to Ponyville" party, Twilight baffled Berry Punch by getting stinko on kiddie cocktails.
  • Dramatically Missing the Point: Her stated reason for hating Trixie is that the charlatan and her band of thugs failed to do what Luna "clearly" intended them to and banish Corona back into the Sun. Once she does the "right" thing, she's quite confident that Luna will reward her. (To be fair, she's like most Equestrians in that she hasn't the blindest idea that Luna wants to cure Corona of her madness; she just has more ability to make a mess of things trying to save the world.)
  • Failed a Spot Check: Without friends to calm her down or ground her in reality, she tends to miss the obvious when it's staring her right in the muzzle.
  • Fatal Flaw: Cannot — will not admit she could ever be wrong about anything, for to acknowledge one mistake would open up the potential of others. She eventually admits it though.
  • For Science!: Pre-character development, Twilight wandered Equestria, following the pattern of: Find magic spell, practice spell, move on to next spell, lather, rinse, repeat.
  • Friendless Background: This is Twilight if she never went to Ponyville: A socially awkward shut in who never learned the magic of friendship and spent her whole life in the pursuit of knowledge, without Spike to serve as a grounding element. She still ends up in Ponyville, but for different reasons.
  • Ignored Epiphany: During Chance Encounter, she allows as how perhaps she could have handled her meeting with Trixie better for a second or two but dismisses the possibility. It takes until she goes to the Mane Six's world for the realization she'd played her cards atrociously to stick.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Despite her original rocky start with the locals, she's the local librarian and, since she's the only pony to smash things to try to make amends, making friends with some of the townsfolk.
  • Irrational Hatred: She has an extreme dislike for Clover the Clever, regarding the mare as an overrated hack. Crisis on Two Equestrias shows the dislike stems from the fact that Clover only made one spell, completely ignoring the fact she wrote down and clarified all of Star-Swirl the Bearded's work.
  • Mistaken for Racist: One of the more spectacularly graceless things Trixie did when the two of them first met was provoke Twilight into saying something borderline tribalist; given that she'd later tell Tootsie Flute flat out that Dinky and Snail's blood was not impure merely because they have a Pegasus for a parent despite what her parents told her, this is something Trixie has to live down.
  • No Social Skills: Like M!Twilight, but Up to Eleven.
  • Not Helping Your Case: Really doesn't do herself any favors in Boast Busted.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: Her main issue with M!Twilight is the "Want-it, Need-It" incident, which makes L!Twilight think they're both equally bad. Their difference of opinions on Clover the Clever doesn't help much either.
  • The Rival: Views herself as such to Trixie after Boast Busted, eventually planning on forming her own Elements of Harmony to prove her superiority.
  • Real Name as an Alias: When recruiting ponies to form her own team (excluding the first), Twilight introduces herself Tenebrosity Scintillation, which is a long winded synonym of her real name.
  • Ron the Death Eater: invoked Just how villainous she actually is has been under debate ever since Boast Busted. In-universe, though the ponies of Ponyville remember what she did with the Ursa Minor, they don't particularly hold it against her given how often this kind of stuff just happens in Ponyville.
  • Sacrificed Basic Skill for Awesome Training: She has studied an exceptional variety of spells, unfortunately she completely ignored all social skills along the way.
  • Shadow Archetype: Trixie is an extroverted showoff and kind of a jerk, but also afraid of being left alone and willing to work on her flaws; Twilight is an introvert, reclusive and socially inconsiderate and doesn't think she needs friends, nor sees her flaws as a problem.
  • Start My Own: More or less the core of her plan in Elements of Insanity. It didn't turn out so well, not that such an outcome should be all that surprising, but one of her choices being an evil Discordian did not help.
  • Stunned Silence: She doesn't take Clover Charms asking who Star-Swirl the Bearded is very well. At all.
  • Technician vs. Performer: The technician to Trixie's performer, particularly in Magic Tutor.
  • Teleportation: Her mastery of this enables her to evade capture and keep running away from her problems and issues rather than facing them.
    • Her thesis, which let her graduate from Luna's Magic Academy, had to do with the theory behind enabling extremely precise teleportation targeting (An Empirical Study of Translocation: Analyzing Conjurational Variables to Enable Teleportation Arrivals Within .5 thou. A thou is 1/1000th of an inch.)
    • The Glass Kingdom actually states that she is considered the foremost expert on teleporation magic in the world.
  • They Just Don't Get It: Twilight cannot understand how Trixie could be the element of magic when she isn't even more powerful than herself, and admits she can't understand Trixie's explanation that its her connection to her friends that makes her worthy and not how many spells she knows.
  • Tired of Running: Comes to this conclusion at the end of Crisis, deciding to turn herself in and face the consequences of her actions.
    Twlight Sparkle: No more running, no more hiding.
  • Try to Fit THAT on a Business Card!: Viscountess Twilight Sparkle, Lady of the Northern Reaches, Lady Protector of Poniswaza, Baronett of Lankswana, Stabledawn and Drum-Mark.
    Twilight Sparkle: Some families give foals oranges in their stockings, my mother gave out titles.
  • The Unfettered: More than once during her quest to learn every spell there was, she broke into restricted places.

An Earth pony, and Bon Bon's younger sister. She has a speech impediment.
  • Amateur Sleuth: In The 'Ling from Another World, Twist is the one who spends the most time trying to figure out the changeling's powers and weaknesses. Justified as she's apparently reads a lot of junior detective novels.
  • Cute Witch: Well, was dressed as one anyway on Nightmare Night.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The 'Ling from Another World gives us a look inside her head.
  • Sweet Tooth: Her talent is in making candy. Add to that a sister who also specialises in making candy... the end result is Twist isn't necessarily in the best physical shape.
  • The Power of Hate: Twist figures out that if the changeling feeds on love, then hate must be poisonous to it, and is the first one to harm it in this way.
  • Verbal Tic: Her lisp. She hates it, and tries fighting it down as much as she can.

Other Adults

A Pegasus who's one of Raindrops' coworkers

An Earth pony mare who's the local head of the Apple Trust corporation. She's deeply concerned about the well-being of her enterprise.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Here, without friends to rein her in, she's become a lot more stubborn and ruthless, being willing to shut out all business competition so her family can be the sole provider of food for ponies.
  • Berserk Button: Harming a member of her family, even if it's her older brother.
  • Cool Big Sis: Tries to be one for Applebloom. It doesn't always work out so well, as seen in Carrot Top Season.
  • Crazy-Prepared: She insists on setting up traps for timberwolves, even thought there's no recorded instance of a timberwolf attack on Ponyville in living memory. And then, during "A Bushel of Carrots"...
  • Funetik Aksent: Exactly how phonetic depends on who's writing. GrassAndClouds2 tends to write her pronounciation of "me" as "ma" on several occasions.
  • In the Blood: It's implied in "Carrot Top Season" that Applejack's Moral Myopia tendencies aren't unique to her - it appears that many other members of the Apple Trust have them as well.
  • Lonely at the Top: her relentless work for securing the Trust's productivity has left her isolated from the community, who view her greedy and selfish.
  • Moral Myopia. Honestly seems to believe that Sweet Apple Acres is vital to the town's future. This leads her to believe that anyone who wants to compete with her wants ponies to starve to death. The reason why that's nuts is because it makes her look like an elephant screaming about the peril that a mouse represents.
    • Ironically, this has infected other members of the Trust as well, as none of the other Trust farms will stop the competition to help her search for her sister.
  • Properly Paranoid: After Zecora's curse ruins several of Ponyville's farms, Applejack's preparations do ensure that Ponyville's citizens will have enough to eat until they can rebuild.
  • Shrouded in Myth: The reason that she cannot see that is that she's based her whole life on a family legend on how the Apples saved Equestria centuries ago. The legend's accuracy is debatable; its effect of her isn't.
    • Irony: According to the real legend (at least as far as Granny Smith claims), Equestria was saved by the farms banding together and helping each other out. Which is exactly what Carrot Top and the other small farms are doing now, and what Applejack is so opposed to.
  • Thicker Than Water
  • Took a Level in Kindness: She begins mellowing out considerably following "Carrot Top Season".

    Banana Split 
An Earth pony farmer.

    Big Macintosh 
A large Earth pony stallion and Applejack's big brother. Though a stoic stallion with few words, he has a good heart.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Pinkie claims that even the Lyrasexual Bon Bon thinks he's hot.
  • Gentle Giant: A very gentle stallion despite his large size and intimidating stoicism. His kindness is pointed by Applejack as a flaw that makes him too "soft" to be the head of the Trust.
  • Got Me Doing It: Exasperated and weirded out though he is by Applejack's treatment of Bloomberg, he finds himself calling the tree by name eventually.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • He has a bounty hunter license. And he doesn't have it just for bragging rights.
    • He also speaks Caballerian (i.e. Spanish).
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He has a Smarty Pants doll, which Applejack teases him about.
  • Ship Tease: Has had a few with Dame Ditzy.
  • They Fight Crime!: With Caramel.
  • The Quiet One: Like in canon, he doesn't speak much.
  • The Worf Effect: Suffers this in Up and Automaton.

A Pegasus mare who makes perfume and other scented products. She runs a perfume shop in town.

    Blue Skies 
A Pegasus who's one of Raindrops' coworkers

    Boxxy Brown 
An Earth pony farmer, yet one of the more grouchy ones.
  • The Alcoholic: Applejack mentions he gets drunk and starts fights a lot.

An Earth Pony stallion and Big Macintosh's friend who works in Sweet Apple Acres.

    Carrot Cake and Cup Cake 
A married couple of Earth ponies who own a bakery in Ponyville, called "Sugar Cube Corner". They frequently employ Pinkie Pie.
  • Mama Bear/Papa Wolf: Are this for Pinkie. They threaten to do very unkind things to Blueblood if he leads her astray.

    Cloud Kicker 
A Pegasus mare who works as a nominal assistant weather manager for Rainbow Dash. She does not take pressure well.
  • Extreme Doormat: According to Longest Night, Longest Day, she usually just agrees with whatever Rainbow Dash says.
  • Nervous Wreck: Described as being particularly nervous a lot.
  • Number Two: Works as (nominal) assistant weather manager for Rainbow Dash.
  • Stepford Smiler: Through Nightmares Yet to Come, Raindrops mentions she has taken up bickering with Rainbow Dash a lot lately (lately here meaning "after the events of Crisis on Two Equestrias), but when Trixie has a chance to talk with her about it, Cloud Kicker insists nothing's wrong whatsoever.

An Earth pony surfer, which makes one question why he's in Ponyville, as the entire province it's in is land-locked.

    Curry and Honeydew 
Bon Bon and Twist's parents, an earth pony and a unicorn respectively. Curry is a relatively genial cook, whereas Honeydew is more than somewhat eccentric.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Honeydew is, even in a town with Pinkie Pie, just plain mad.
  • Hidden Depths: At the end of "Dinner with the Folks", Honeydew has a moment of calm, acknowledging she knows she's insane, and has been since birth. She has her good days, and her bad days.
  • Labcoat of Science: Honeydew wears one. She has to be talked into wearing something a little different to a restaurant.
  • Mad Scientist: Honeydew, though mercifully she's not (usually) a dangerous one. She just wants to cross breed candy and vegetables, and show them! SHOW THEM ALL! Her methods just seem to involve ways that make her lab shake.
  • No Medication for Me: Apparently, some time before "Dinner with the Folks", Honeydew did get put on medication. It hasn't exactly helped, though she acknowledges it helps.
  • They Called Me Mad!: Amazingly, ponies have called Honeydew mad for wanting to make a more balanced breakfast.

    Daisy, Lily, and Rose 
Three melodramatic earth pony friends who run a flower business together.

A Pegasus mare whose special talent is napping.

    Filthy Rich 
A wealthy Earth pony stallion who's Diamond Tiara's father. He's a rich businesspony.

    Granny Smith 
An elderly Earth Pony mare who's the grandmother of Applejack, Big Macintosh and Apple Bloom.
  • Cool Old Lady
  • Insubstantial Ingredients: Knows how to extract a smile to put in a potion.
  • Is That What He Told You?: She tells Carrot Top how the Apples really 'saved' the kingdom. Instead of Applejack's version of how the Apples saved the country due to overwhelming strength, the Apple Trust started out as a small farm that had gotten its neighbors to band together in a time of crisis.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Implied. In the above-mentioned scene Carrot Top also wonders that Granny Smith told the story as if she had been there herself... hundreds of years ago. Downplayed mildly in that she actually looks like an old mare.

    Green Grape 
An Earth pony mare whose role is being the unofficial head of the non-Apple Trust farmers
  • Brutal Honesty: She likes Carrot Top, and supports her, but states she shouldn't have entered a competition and asked for help if she wasn't sure she would win.
  • Depending on the Writer: Green Grape or Green Grapes? For that matter, mare or stallion (assuming they aren't two different ponies who just happen to have extremely similar names)?
  • The Leader: Green Grape's voice counts more than any other farmer in a debate. Also, a glance from her can get everyone else to hush up.

    Heavy Roller 
The Earth pony father of Scootaloo. He owns and is the proprietor of the local Wagon Repair shop.

    Ivory Scroll 
An Earth pony who's the mayor of Ponyville.

    Lotso Lots 
Ponyville's retail agent.

    Marching Order 
A Pegasus stallion and former member of the Royal Guard, he was injured in a skirmish with griffins. His special talent is following orders to the letter.

    Pinkie Pie 
A hyperactive, party-loving Earth pony mare who's always ready to throw another party. And another. And another. And...
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Trixie calls her out on her not stopping to do things like finding out what ponies really like or telling them what's going on before bounding off on a sugar-fueled tangent.
  • Drop the Hammer: Bashes a Cragodile with a sledgehammer when it threatens Gummy.
  • Genki Girl: Like in canon, she's enthusiastically cheerful.
  • Improvised Weapon: Makes up a slingshot out of party supplies, and a rubber chicken, to fight off timberwolves.
  • Insanity Immunity: Truth is a scourge has no noticeable effect on her, aside from possibly making her grouchy about waffle houses.
  • Inter-Class Romance: Engages in one with Prince Blueblood, a Canterlot noble of the Night Court, despite her humble background.
  • Morality Pet: Prince Blueblood actually refers to her as his conscience once they get together.
  • Motor Mouth: She spends two hours talking at Blueblood, apparently about the Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness.
  • Reality Warper: Still seems to possess most of her Pinkie powers, despite not being an Element.
  • Reality Ensues: Since she's not the Element of Laughter in this continuity, and often forgets to take other ponies' wants into account, her behavior tends to come across as bothersome rather than delightful.
  • Ship Tease: With Prince Blueblood, after the Grand Galloping Gala. It's even inspired a couple romance stories.
  • Spanner in the Works: Unwittingly manages to partly sabotage Trixie's plan at the Grand Galloping Gala simply by being Pinkie. She doesn't cause any major damage, only preventing Zizanie from spiking Blueblood's drink.

    Rainbow Dash 
A Pegasus mare who acts as weather manager of Ponyville, yet is slacker extraordinaire. She's a good friend of Fluttershy's, though her slacker behavior makes her a constant headache for Raindrops.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Excellent weather mare, but doesn't seem to take her job too seriously. Deconstructed in Carrot Top Over The Line, where it's found out that she was put in the weather manager's position by Flutteshy's father, and doesn't feel she even deserves the job.
  • The Caretaker: For Fluttershy, as her oldest friend and under the orders of her father, Thunderous Posey.
  • Jerkass: Picture if Rainbow Dash had absolutely no one to reign her in or call her out, like she had in canon. She's also in practice a very incompetent boss who doesn't take her job seriously and chooses to slack off, leaving her employees working overtime to ensure Ponyville has the weather it needs. She's only there in Ponyville and able to do what she does because Fluttershy's father is basically forcing her to stay there and take care of Fluttershy. So yes, she does leave Ponyville hanging often... but she has good reasons for it. Furthermore, because the position was given to her, she doesn't feel she deserves the position anyway, which makes her feel depressed.
  • An Offer You Can't Refuse: Thunderous Posey also made sure to point out that if Rainbow wouldn't take the job, he would force her mother to do it.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Diagnosed as a cause of her issues in At the Grand Galloping Gala.
    Raindrops: That buck-all attitude is half the problem with the weather captain we’ve got back in Ponyville. She’s got connections in Cloudsdale, she knows she won’t ever be fired... so it means she can goof off and be lazy whenever she wants.
    • It also works the other way round. Since she got her position via Thunderous Posey's interference instead of through her own skills, she doesn't believe she's actually able to do her job, and hence never even tries.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!:
    • Abuses her weather manager position in Griffin Over The Line.
    • In Tales of Ponyville, she sees no problem with ruining everypony's day with lots of unscheduled rain if it means Fluttershy can go to the spa without having to deal with passersby.

A Unicorn mare who works as a fashion designer. She's very generous, but potentially hiding a manipulative nature.
  • Bi the Way: Still gushes over Prince Blueblood, but dated Cheerilee briefly.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Upon meeting Fluttershy for the first time, she immediately starts gushing over her and making plans to have her model... without getting her consent, or noticing how uncomfortable she's making the shy pegasus.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Occellus' Ordinary Day gives her some screentime.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: At times shows shades of this over Pinkie being in a relationship with Blueblood.
  • Lesbian Vampire: Becomes this a pony version of this in the non canon Costumes fic where a magical mishap turns everypony into their costumes and she winds up biting Trixie.
  • Taking Advantage of Generosity: Played with: while she can still be quite generous herself, she isn't afraid to invert this to make others perform certain favors for her...

    Thunder Lane

    Vinyl Scratch 
A music-loving Unicorn mare.=====
  • Crazy-Prepared: She always carries a stealth suit on her person, just in case. She lives in Ponyville, after all.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Has a supporting role in "The Jackelope Valley Festival".
  • Flat-Earth Atheist: She doesn't believe in Corona. The Corona, the one who touched down in Ponyville and kidnapped a whole bunch of ponies, shouting dramatically all the while, and setting things on fire.
  • No-Sell: She's totally immune to Banshee Budgies (which, as the name suggests, are very loud). Probably because her music out-louds them.

Other Foals

Pegasus-unicorn hybrid who doesn't like how the other foals think she's a wise princess-to-be and would rather stick to pottery.

Earth pony. Applejack's little sister. Very defensive of her family.


    Bee Bop 
Pegasus. Friends with Featherweight. Kind of loud.

    Diamond Tiara 
Earth pony. Very rich.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Can't admit her feelings to Scootaloo, no matter how hard she tries.
  • Daddy's Girl: Oh, so much.
    Filthy Rich: Now, if anypony asks, I spent seven hundred bits on your mother and a hundred and fifty on you, okay, honey?
    • Her solution to a crisis? Scream for dad (she's annoyed when it doesn't work).
  • Depending on the Writer: Exactly how much of a jerk DT is depends on the story. "Just Us Little Ponies" has her descending all the way from Jerk with a Heart of Gold to plain old Jerk with a Heart of Jerk.
  • Even Jerks Have Standards: Is horrified when, Raindrops, in Eye of the Hurricane, makes Snails cry.
    • Not that this stops her bullying him some months later, though.
  • Everyone Can See It: Well, not everyone, but Lyra and Bon Bon realize that she has feelings for Scootaloo almost immediately when they come to buy an apology gift for Cheerilee.
  • Hidden Depths: Her special talent is accessorizing, and she hates it when others think that it means that she's only good at wearing jewelry (basically, she knows what goes best on who and such).
    • She's a bit nicer than she first appears.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: A lot of her behavior is a cover for the fact that she has No Social Skills.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Thanks to her occasional Pet the Dog moments and Sympathetic P.O.V. in Scootalong to the Cheer.
  • No Social Skills: Scootalong to the Cheer reveals that most of Diamond Tiara's abrasiveness and hostility is a defensive facade to cover up her insecurity and awkwardness around other ponies. Especially Scootaloo.
  • Pet the Dog: After confirming several times that Dinky really did earn all those bits by herself with hard work, compliments her on a job well done. (Though she also makes it very clear she doesn't want that being spread around at school, obviously!)
  • Puppy Love: Has a MASSIVE crush on Scootaloo.
  • Rescue Romance: Was "saved" by Scootaloo from a phony kidnapping some time before Trixie arrived in Ponyville.
  • Sour Supporter: Tends to fall into this role in stories that group her with other foals.
  • Spoiled Brat
  • Tsundere: towards Scootaloo.


  • Badass Adorable: During Title Match, she manages to incinerate a timberwolf. And she's still a foal.
  • Pyro Maniac: Loves fireworks a lot. "Magic Tutor" hints that she actually does have actual, if low-scale, pyromania.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The more tomboyish foal to Alula's girly-girl

Earth Pony. Moves to Ponyville about halfway through Season 1.
  • Bad Boss: Invoked by him in his role as Pirate King in the foals' LAR Ping game. He's a pirate, after all.
  • Lost in Character: To a small extent in Treasure Hunt. Pipsqueak really likes being Pirate King and doesn't drop the act very easily when playing the role.
  • Ocean Awe: While he likes living in Ponyville, he'd also like to go back to sea some day.
  • Pirate: His favorite role in the foals' pick-up LAR Ping. His family appears to be one of the few Equestrian families in the maritime business, until his dad finally admitted how sea-sick it made him.
  • Ship Tease: With Dinky. They've been shown to get married in at least two different possible futures.

Pegasus. Friend of Sweetie Belle and underachiever, at least insofar as school work is concerned.

    Silver Spoon 
Earth pony. Also very rich.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Is horrified when Raindrops, in Eye of the Hurricane, makes Snails cry.
  • Jerkass: Makes some very horrible remarks about Raindrops hitting Snails before Tales of Ponyville, to Snails.
  • Yes Filly

Unicorn. Snails' best friend.
  • It Amused Me: The reason he starts changing the colors of his classmates' coats and manes at the end of "Magic Tutor". That, and Snails was sick at home.

    Sweetie Belle 
Unicorn, Rarity's little sister, friend of Scootaloo.
  • Epic Fail: At one point she borrows Scootaloo's scooter and gets stuck in a tree. Not even she is sure how it happened.
  • It Amused Me: In Rime of the Ancient Pegasus, she neglects to mention she and her fellow carollers are singing a drinking song because, hey, it's funny (something she and Trixie share a hoof-bump on).
  • Precocious Crush: Has it bad for Cheerilee. She admits her feelings in "To Cheerilee, with Love", but Cheerilee gently turns her down. An Embarrassment in Three Acts shows it hasn't gone away even several months later.
  • Straight Filly
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl/Those Two Foals: with Scootaloo.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: As in the show, Sweetie Belle has an incredible command of language for her age. Gets a Lampshade Hanging at one point when Sweetie Belle defensively asks why the other foals expect her to know a word they don't understand.

    Tootsie Flute 
Unicorn. Skilled at magic.
  • Puppy Love: In spite of how she was raised, she's crushing hard on Truffle Shuffle, an earth pony.
  • Racist Grandma: Tribalist parents, actually. They believe that pureblood unicorns have stronger magic than unicorns born from mixed-tribe unions (the truth is that unicorns with unicorn parents are simply more likely to pick up magic outside of school).
  • Technician vs. Performer: The technician to Dinky's performer, insisting a unicorn needs to know everything about their horn's biology to cast spells.
  • Wise Beyond Her Years: She knows a lot of the terminology of unicorn biology, which none of her classmates do (she insists it's necessary to know them in order to perform magic).

    Truffle Shuffle 
Earth pony. Skilled at finding food.
  • Big Eater: Since his special talent is all about finding food.
  • Oblivious to Love: Doesn't seem to realize that Tootsie Flute has a huge crush on him, despite it being described as the worst-kept secret in school.
    • They do start hanging out more after Magic Tutor, however.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: He regards being able to find (and then eat) food as the best thing ever, but then he is a kid.
