     The Sirens 

The Sirens

Adagio Dazzle, Aria Blaze, and Sonata Dusk
  • Beauty, Brains and Brawn: While all three are fairly pretty in their human bodies, Adagio is a knock-out by beauty standards, Aria is the most fit and physically strongest; and Sonata is much smarter than she seems given her media awareness.
  • Child by Rape: Their mothers Hymnia and Melpomene were enslaved and eventually escaped from their Windigo captors pregnant. Not hard to see what happened.
  • Clingy MacGuffin: The gems that are the source of their power cannot be removed with just brute force. They only come off when they want to take them off.
  • Disappeared Dad: None of them knew their fathers, the above making the reason obvious. They turn out to be Windigos, who are also in the Equestria Girls world.
  • Does Not Like Spam: None of them like milk.
  • Emotion Eater: They gain strength from people's negative emotions, especially hate. Aria eventually finds out love gives a bigger boost.
  • Enemy Mine: They rescue and form an alliance with Monster X as either one of their forces alone isn't enough to destroy Enjin, who's going after them both.
  • Enthralling Siren: They mesmerize people with their music to feed on their emotions and get them to do what they want.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: They lived about a thousand years ago, but when Star Swirl the Bearded banished them to the human world, they arrived a few months or years before the story started.
  • Hate Plague: Their trademark ability, their singing can cause strife between humans that hear it. Its effectiveness on kaiju however is shoddy at best.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After their experiences with Monster X and Enjin, then Aria teaching them how to channel The Power of Love, they turn over a new leaf.
  • Hybrid Monster: While "monster" is a very subjective term in regards to their mothers, they're a cross between a mermare and an unknown father species.
  • Idol Singer: After turning good, they become a successful singing group who invoke positive feelings in their audiences.
  • Last of His Kind: According to Adagio, they are the only Sirens period both before and after their mother and aunt died. Their species is not natural, but born from a union between Mermares and an unspecified father species, later revealed to be Windigos.
  • Mind-Control Music: While it works fine on humans, it unfortunately has an adverse effect on Monster X, causing his Flashback Nightmare to pop up.
  • Older Than They Look: They are actually about 2-4 years older than Sunset and the Rainbooms, but look young enough to pass for teenagers.
  • Power Copying: They can take on the abilities of those whose emotions they absorb.
  • Rapunzel Hair: They all have very long hair as humans, with Adagio's being the longest when it's not curled up.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Since they are adapted to living in the ocean, they are not easily bothered by cold, even in their human forms. On the flip side, hot and sunny weather can make them feel light headed and lethargic.
  • Royal Blood: Their mothers were princesses of the Mermares and their grandmother was the queen.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After encountering Kaiju twice, they decide their best course of action is to move out of town. Unfortunately, fate has other plans.
  • Semi-Divine: Their fathers were the Windigos, meaning for all intents and purposes, they're Grogar's granddaughters.
  • The Middle of These Is Not Like The Others: Adagio and Sonata are siblings, with Aria being born in-between them to one of their parents' siblings and making her their cousin.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Varying degrees. Adagio and Sonata's mother, Melpomene, had a coloration similar, but not exact, to Sonata's and a similar curly "hair" style to Adagio; with Adagio's coloration coming more from her grandmother, Amatheia. Played straighter with Aria's mother Hymnia meanwhile looks a lot like her daughter with a similar "hair" and color style, but with her teal green and purple colors flipped.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Like normal mermares, they have a pathological fear of cats.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: They dream of returning to the undersea world they came from before they tried to take over Equestria and were banished as a result.

Aria Blaze

Click here for her transformation 
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Genuinely remorseful about being taken away from home, feeling some bitterness towards Adagio and her ambition for getting them banished.
  • Always Someone Better: She's the most athletic of the trio and learned some martial arts. Unfortunately, her attacker was leagues ahead of her.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: She comes from a magical land of talking ponies and used to be a creature who would lure sailors to their doom with her singing, yet she finds the idea of aliens hard to believe.
  • Badass Driver: To her credit, she managed to keep control of a speeding van going down a bending rural road while it was being attacked by Monster X, at least until he wrecked the steering wheel.
  • Battle Couple: With Monster X, fighting Enjin together in it's human form. During X's Behemoth Battle with Enjin's true form, Aria manages to launch an internal attack on it to swing the odds in his favor.
  • Bequeathed Power: Right before Enjin absorbs her, she passes her necklace to Monster X, granting him her strength.
  • Blessed with Suck: Her calming down and drawing energy from Kaizer Ghidorah gave her a portion of his power, vastly increasing her own. However she happened to do it right when Enjin was hunting Kaizer down. Due to now having a similar energy signature, Enjin starts targeting her too. As she absorbs more Kaiser energy, her personality also starts becoming more violent and ill-tempered than before and eventually ends up driving a wedge between her and the other Sirens.
  • Bodyguard Crush: It's at first implied, and then confirmed she'd started gaining feelings for Monster X during the time he was charged with protecting the Sirens from Enjin. Leads to a Big Damn Kiss when they save each other's life and the threat is passed.
  • Boxing Lessons for Superman: Her martial arts classes serve her well in situations where her hypnotic singing can't help her. Monster X gives her additional fight training to better apply her new strength and gravity powers.
  • Breath Weapon: As a Siren she can already project her voice as an attack but after attaining a Kaiser mode for herself, her sonic scream is combined with a graviton beam.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Is not adverse to using Car Fu to try and take out her attacker.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Her transformed state, despite its slightly berserk and bloodthristy nature, is actually quite pretty.
  • Deadpan Snarker: As per canon, she can be quite snarky when annoyed by someone, or when showing affection to X.
  • Distaff Counterpart: She's slowly turning into a female version of Kaizer Ghidorah's human form, in both looks and personality.
  • Emotion Eater: Instead of causing strife and green smoke she'd normally create, she actually managed generate more powerful red smoke of an unknown emotion while calming an attacking Kaizer Ghidorah down. Turns out that smoke is caused by calm feelings and The Power of Love.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: After absorbing Kaizer Ghidorah's energy, she gained some of his abilities like Gravity Master, Healing Factor, and Super Strength, but cannot activate them at will. After the Sirens form an Enemy Mine with Monster X, she asks him to train her.
  • Music Soothes the Savage Beast: As mentioned above, when cornered and about to be attacked by an enraged Kaizer Ghidorah, Aria accidentally sang a new melody that snapped him out of his rage. It was a lullaby sung to her by her mother Hymnia, which focuses on love instead of hate.
  • Never Be Hurt Again: After losing to Monster X and having to be saved by Sonata, she vows to become stronger so that no one can ever scare her again.
  • Not the Intended Use: Like her cousins, her siren heart is a Clingy MacGuffin that repels any attempts to grab it by anyone other than herself; though the action causes a recoil back into her with an energy jolt. Monster X uses this jolt to jog her back into consciousness during the hospital fight, and later to restart her heart after her giving him all her energy while being absorbed by Enjin nearly killed her.
  • Official Kiss: Implied in the main story and shown in full in Building Bridges, she pulled Monster X into one of these.
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: Her hair starts to turn golden when using Kaizer Ghidorah's power.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Long enough to reach her hips even when tied up in her Mega Twin Tails and Monster X to warn her about it being impractical for combat. When her hair bands come out and she wears it down when in her Super Mode, it turns out it's even longer.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Her eyes turn red when using Kaizer Ghidorah's power. Later on she's gained so much power from him, her eyes stay red even when at neutral. While she does lose a large majority of the kaiser powers by the end, she still has a bit left that gives her eyes a few spots of red amidst the violet.
  • Relationship Upgrade: Her and Monster X's relationship swings across the spectrum. First encounter they were enemies. Second encounter was a strained Enemy Mine. During the days of their training, Teeth-Clenched Teamwork that evolved into passive understanding. Last part of their training was them both taking a level in kindness to each other and acting friendly, if with some snark. When the nightmare against Enjin is finally over? Monster X gives her a Headbutt of Love and she gives him a Big Damn Kiss.
  • Rescue Romance: Subverted with Monster X in the sense they saved each other's life at least twice before falling in love.
  • Second Love: She's this for Monster X. The author even commented that fate sometimes gives people second chances when he manages to save her from a similar situation to the one that killed Controller 011.
  • Ship Tease: With Monster X. They later become an Official Couple.
    • Via some botched words between them, Monster X and her get a noticeable awkward moment right after fighting in their first encounter with each other.
    • She blushes up again when he catches her from a fall, noticing the hold is effectively a one-armed hug.
    • The activation for her Super Mode is seeing X hurt after fighting Enjin alone.
    • After seemingly defeating Enjin, the two prepared to resume their fight, but found they couldn't bring themselves to hurt each other. Then she reached for X's face... only for Enjin to revive and interrupt them.
  • Sizeshifter: Absorbing further doses of Kaizer Ghidorah's power makes her grow in height. Whereas she originally was shorter than Adagio Dazzle, now she can tower over her cousin. After attaining a Kaiser version of her original form, she's now roughly the same height as human X.
  • Super Mode: During the rematch against Enjin, she releases more power from her necklace and gains a form similar to Midnight Sparkle and Kaizer Ghidorah.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Besides growth in her powers, her training under Monster X puts her enhanced strength to use by greatly improving her martial arts prowess. By chapter 28, she is unquestionably the strongest of the three Sirens and come chapter 29, she transforms into a Kaiser version of her normal form. Although by the end of the chapter she's lost most of the Kaiser energy that she's absorbed from Monster X.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Over the course of the Enjin arc, she and Monster X grow a respectful and amicable, Friendly Enemy relationship due to their Enemy Mine against Enjin. The finale to the arc shows she's definitely gained feelings for him. This also extends to her fellow sirens in the end. At the start she was butting heads with and planning on taking revenge on Adagio. In the end she let go of her anger and reconciled with her cousins.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: If her and Adagio's memories are any indication, much of her current bitter and morose personality is a large result of losing her mother and then being banished from her home into the human Equestrian realm.

Sonata Dusk

  • Action Girl: She has several fight scenes in the April Fools' Day special and does quite well.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: She is aware she's in a story, referencing the readers and author.
  • Genre Savvy: She guesses that the Equestrian magic the Sirens are hunting is tied to someone at the local high school, because all the comics and TV shows she gets into with fantastical elements inevitably involve the nearest high school. She and Megalon also figure out the current plot they are in works a lot like typical crossover fiction and manage to avoid Let's You and Him Fight.
  • Going Native: Seems to be the most comfortable with the human world, having learned to swim and is immersed in pop culture.

  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: For all of her aloofness and controlling personality, she does honestly care about her little sister and cousin.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She can act very smug and condescending towards her subordinates. But when she sees first hand the changes that had happened to Aria, she breaks the facade and shows genuine concern. She then admits that she promised that she would protect the other two after their mother and aunt died.

  • Most Common Super Power: Has magical abilities even as a human and is a knockout by human standards, large bust and all.

  • Never My Fault: She never accepted responsibility for her pride helping to cause the siren's being exposed and banished by Star Swirl, earning her the ire of Aria Blaze. Her finally fessing up and averting this trope helps her and Aria reconcile.
  • Pride Before a Fall: About a thousand years ago, the Sirens tried to take over Equestria. After feeding on so many ponies, she got so overconfident that she believed they would be able to defeat Princess Celestia herself, despite Aria urging her to wait until they were truly ready. They then went to Canterlot too early and were then defeated and banished by Star Swirl the Bearded, who isn't as powerful as Celestia.
  • Proud Beauty: Aria says that back in Equestria, she would boast that she was the most beautiful of the Sirens. In their human forms, she got or worked to get one that fits the beauty standard the most.

  • Spanner in the Works: When Bagan allowed Irys to return to the human world so she could eat, he took precautions to make sure she would not run into Monster X or Enjin.

  • Adaptation Species Change: His species isn't known, but it's implied he is not a dromaeosaurid in this version. Judging by his features and illustration he appears to be a troodontid.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Maia's father apparently knew him given he's depicted in his sketch book, but what exactly is why Maia tries to keep him a secret to find out.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Differs from the kaiju from the main story in a number of ways. Chief being while inhuman and a hyperevolved dinosaur he's actually native to the Equestria Girls world rather than brought from another.

  • Raptor Attack: Averted. He's accurately feathered and bird-like.

  • Hidden Depths: She apparently performed in a band in high school and knows how to sing quite well. She also somewhat knows her way around repairing machines.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: She's still getting the hang of her powers. Animated vines sometimes sprout without her meaning to, usually when around Gigan. Adagio and Twilight start teaching her about magic to amend this.
  • Legacy Character: She's not the first Gaea Everfree. Her mother Wysteria was the previous one. It's later revealed that there were others before her mother, all keeping the power safe until its rightful bearers could be found.

  • Super Senses: They can hear the infrasonic frequencies the Guardian Beasts use to communicate over long distances, though they cannot understand it.
  • Wendigo: Besides the obvious, their physical forms in the Equestria Girls world, at least before Wysteria destroyed them, more closely resembled the Wendigo myth, having skull-like faces covered in frost, frostbitten gaunt and unnaturally long limbs, with legs especially that are unnaturally long, and deer-like antlers. The narration even directly mentions how an Algonquin human from Terra, where the Wendigo myth originated in our world, would see Boreas.
