- Arranged Marriage: When she was a child, she was put in one with her neighbor Cho Yon. As they became teenagers, they slowly got to know each other and started falling in love, but it was ended by Jeog's attack.
- Can't Hold Her Saki: Apparently gets inebriated very easily and switches between being an overly affectionate drunk and a dizzy one.
- Fantasy Counterpart Culture: Her design, name, and species all point to her being the Equestrian equivalent to a Korean. On top of that she explains that her homeland, Carrea, is a peninsula located near Neighpon.

Once she decides she's Tired of Running, she fights Jeog, stabbing her repeatedly with a fire poker and helping kill the monster.
- Spot of Tea: This comes with the territory of owning a restaurant and tea shop.
- Tired of Running: She decides she's this during the final confrontation with Jeog, realizing she'd been running since she first met the monster. She then proceeds to break free of Jeog's Kiss of Death and repeatedly stabs the monster with a fire poker, setting up Jeog's demise.
- Tragic Keepsake: She kept the wedding garment she made for Cho Yon. Sadly, it gets destroyed by fire while Anguirus was wearing it (as part of a ploy to fool Jeog). At the very least, he looked good in it.

Dr. Ghost Story
- Blind Without 'Em: She has poor eyesight without her glasses. Due to being nocturnal she also needs prescription sunglasses to be active during the day.
- Nightmare Fetishist: She's a fan of Nightmare Night and other macabre subjects, as she feels life's no fun without a good scare. Her bed is shaped like a coffin.
- Not That Kind of Doctor: Her doctorate isn't in medicine, it's in Comparative Studies with a Concentration in Folklore.
- Required Secondary Powers: She can read the moods of others, as being familiar with the audience's mood is important when telling a story.
- The Storyteller: Her special talent. She also owns a book store.
- The Xenophile: She becomes fascinated by the Kaiju and attempts to learn more about them.

- Butt-Monkey: Despite coming close to killing named characters, he is humiliated in battle against Rainbow Dash and Anguirus, then Rodan uses him as a landing pad.
- Defiant to the End: Even after it is clear that he is no match for Anguirus and Rodan, he keeps attacking until he is knocked unconscious.
- Hulking Out: When consumed by greed, he changes from a teenage dragon roughly two to three times the size of a pony to an adult dragon roughly 70 meters tall.
- One-Winged Angel: Greed growths into a 70 meter adult. While it makes him more of a threat, he's no match for Anguirus.
- Screams Like a Little Girl: Anguirus later claims to Spike that Garble did this while he was beating him up.
- The Sociopath: This is the same character that tried to kill a nest of unhatched baby Phoenixes for fun. The guy has no empathy for anything that's not him, even pounding on his own gang when they annoy him.
- Starter Villain: Is the first actual villain in the story, and the first to fight a fully grown Kaiju, but ultimately pales in comparison to any of the other villains.
- Teeth Flying: Rainbow Dash knocks out some of his teeth during their fight.
- Unskilled, but Strong: Anguirus cites this as one of the big reasons he and his group were easily crushed: that many fully grown, experienced dragons would likely be a threat to him, but they're not only very unused to their adult forms but completely feral, making them no match at all for him.
- Would Hurt a Child: Threatens to eat Gentle Leaf. Then decides to eat the rest of the camp of kids if he can.
- Abhorrent Admirer: Towards Gigan, so much so that she's quite possibly the only thing in the entire multiverse that can make him scream like a sissy.
- All Love Is Unrequited: Gets smitten on Gigan, declaring him the "Perfect Barber". He's terrified of her.

- Breaking the Fourth Wall: She is aware the Power Ponies world is a comic book.
- Laughing Mad: Setting up death ray or fighting a killer cyborg forty meters in the air, she doesn't stop giggling.
- Lipstick Mark: Apparently kissed Gigan on the visor when she tackled him because Monster X notices one of these later.
- Made of Iron: Gigan tries to kill her by teleporting to a high height and dropping her. She hits the ground and makes a crater, before getting back up and walking off.
- While only implied at first, it's later explained that this is due to Toon Physics. The dimension she inhabits is literally a comic book that's rated 'A' for all ages. As such, any situation that would have gruesomely lethal results in any other world is toned down. For example, trying to directly kill Mane-iac by stabbing her has absolutely no effect whatsoever.
- Prehensile Hair: Her mane and tail. And then Gigan gives her mane a hair cut.
- Satellite Love Interest: Her most notable scenes are her fighting and then crushing on Gigan. This is intentional, however, as her "relationship" with Gigan is a parody of Shipping.
- Thinking Up Portals: She can travel between the pony and human worlds' versions of the comic book at will.
- Woman Scorned: When she mistakenly believes Irys is Gigan's mate and thus Gigan has been "cheating" on her, she storms off, warning him that if they ever meet again, he'll be sorry. note
The Flim-Flam Brothers
- Insurance Fraud: They attempted to collect by claiming their Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 7000 was damaged during Godzilla Junior's battle with the Gyaos flock, when it really broke down a long time before the fight.
- Laser-Guided Karma: While driving to Canterlot to file their insurance claim, the swarm of Destroyah babies overwhelmed and destroyed their wagon.
- Affectionate Nickname: As children, Starlight called her "Moony".
- The Atoner: After turning over a new leaf, she becomes determined to make it up to Junior.
- Big Sister Instinct: She never left her baby sister on the night they lost their parents, even when confronted with the rampaging dragon. History repeated itself when Nightmare Godzilla was trying to get at Starlight as well.
- Bullying a Dragon: It takes some serious balls to call Godzilla Junior a bastard child to his face just because his parents weren't married.
- Cowardly Lion: She confronts Godzilla Junior and antagonizes him despite being absolutely terrified of him.
- Didn't Think This Through: Her plan to convince the public that Godzilla is a threat is to confront him and repeatedly piss him off by saying what she thinks of him to his face. If he had less self control, she would be dead. Even if he had snapped, the fact many ponies present knew exactly what she was trying to do and didn't agree with it (in fact she's booted out of the court as soon as possible) implies even if she had succeeded, it likely still wouldn't have gotten the outcome she wanted.
- Freudian Excuse: As a child, she attempted to befriend a dragon, only for it to turn on her and murder her parents and neighbors. She saw a similar situation in the Equestrians befriending the Kaiju.
- HeelFace Turn: Becomes much nicer after Godzilla forgives her and urges her to forgive herself.
- Knight Templar: Wanting to keep Equestria safe IS a noble goal, but trying to petrify someone for no other reason than 'I think you MIGHT be dangerous' ultimately puts her in this category.
- Nothing Personal: Her beef with Godzilla Junior isn't against him as an individual, she just thinks his morality must be so different and his family history too shady to think he's trustworthy enough to have out in a public area.
- Orphan's Ordeal: Lost her family to a dragon attack two decades ago. She blames herself for the incident as the dragon followed her home when she met and tried to befriend it out in the woods.
- Promotion to Parent: After their parents died, she helped raise her little sister Starlight alongside their adoptive parents.
- Scars Are Forever: She has one on the back of one of her front legs. She got it when she tried to offer up the necklace her father made for her to sate a greedy dragon to keep it from attacking her or Starlight. The dragon's claws raked across the back of her leg when it snatched it up.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Subverted. She's Starlight Glimmer's big sister and they do have a somewhat similar body with purple fur, albeit different shades, curly manes, and celestial related names. However Moonbeam is a Pegasus and has a blue and purple color scheme instead of a Unicorn with a purple and violet scheme like Starlight.
- Survivor Guilt: Survived the Foal Mountain Dragon Massacre that took her parents and others with the only other survivor being her then infant sister. Every week she visits her parent's graves to talk to them.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: She believes in this so much that she cannot accept even killing in self defense or to save a life, so she cannot accept the Kaiju as heroes.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: She genuinely wants to protect Equestria and its citizens, but her methods are inexcusable. She even proposes keeping the Kaiju petrified until they have to defend Equestria to minimize their interactions.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: One could argue her entire misunderstanding with Godzilla Junior is she assumes that because he came from a completely different world and different lifestyle as Equestrians, he must operate under Blue and Orange Morality. As a psychologist, this is a pretty smart idea to avoid values dissonance. The problem is that many of the things she claims prove Godzilla Junior is an unpredictable and dangerous individual have nothing to do with how he behaves note , and he actually does abide by a scale of morality very similar to her own.
- Achilles' Heel: Is Nigh Invulnerable and extremely deadly and powerful, but dogs can both sense her and harm her hearing severely with their barks. She's also terrified and vulnerable to fire and can't maintain her illusions when touching iron. Anguirus ultimately exploits the fire vulnerability to kill her.
- Agony Beam: Her Will-o'-the-Wisp attack.
- And Show It to You: Her preferred method of murder is ripping out her victim's heart or liver.
- Arch-Enemy: Considers herself Ki Seong's, and has been chasing her for years.
- Arc Villain: Seems to be set up as one.
- Blue and Orange Morality: What little is known is that her actions are driven by a morality system so atypical that it has lethal results and cannot be changed. However, it's also noted that she actively learned to hate and be sadistic, essentially becoming genuinely evil in the process.
- Catchphrase: "You're gonna die running," to Ki Seong. Ironically, Jeog herself is the one that does.
- Depraved Bisexual: Whether her prey is male or female, she will attempt to seduce and kiss them before killing them.
- Evil-Detecting Dog: One thing that can give her away is that dogs instinctively see her as evil and can recognize her. Their barks are excruciatingly loud to her.
- Family-Unfriendly Death:
- Her MO is killing her victims by ripping out their heart or liver.
- Anguirus kills her by pinning her down in a blazing cabin and burning her to death.
- Fantastic Foxes: She is a Gumiho, a nine-tailed fox spirit from Korean (or in this case, Carrean) mythology.
- Femme Fatale: Likes to entice and seduce her victims, many whom assume she is a Kitsune, who are known to become a Magical Girlfriend, to lure them in to she can kill them.
- Glamour Failure: Contract with iron disrupts her illusions.
- Implacable Man: If she sets her eyes on a person, she will chase them until she gets them. She's been chasing Ki Seong for years and literally crossed oceans trying to get to her. The only things that will stop her are certain wards that can block her entry, dogs, and fire, the last of which being the only thing capable of truly hurting her. It takes being stabbed repeatedly with a red hot iron poker, an extended fight with Applejack, Ki Seong, and Anguirus, and finally being burned alive in a burning cabin to kill her.
- Imposter Forgot One Detail:
- Tried to seduce and then kill Ki Seong by taking on Cho Yon's form, but offered her soup even though he didn't know how to cook.
- Tries to seduce and then kill Anguirus by taking on Ki Seong's form, but gets certain details wrong like not knowing Seong's plans with Gentle Leaf and not knowing his true name.
- Intangibility: By surrounding her arm with her pseudo flames, she can phase it into her victims to rip out their heart or liver.
- Karmic Death: Told Ki Seong "You're gonna die running" over and over again. Jeog herself dies trying to flee for her life as Anguirus drags her to her demise.
- Just Toying with Them: Enjoys pausing to play with her prey.
- Kill It with Fire: One of her only weaknesses: she's terrified of fire and can be harmed by it. She's finally killed when Anguirus, who is immune to fire, drags her into a burning cabin and holds her there until nothing is left but her skull, which they stomp to dust.
- Kiss of Death: Her kiss can paralyze, then she guts her prey while kissing them. Fortunately, Anguirus was powerful enough to shake it off. Seong breaks out of it by sheer force of will.
- Master of Illusion: She can create illusions that only work on sight and sound. They can't replicate smells, textures, or presumably tastes.
- Meaningful Name: Jeog means "Adversary".
- Never Found the Body: Ki Seong believed she was dead after the ship they were on was lit aflame and then sank, both of which could've gotten rid of the dang thing. Turns out she was still alive. Subverted the second time, when Anguirus not only holds her in fire for an hour but makes sure to bring her skull out of it.
- Nigh Invulnerable: She's nearly impervious to conventional forms of damage. She can be knocked around or crushed, but she won't be actually hurt by it. The only way to actually hurt her is with fire.
- Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction to Ki Seong breaking free of her Kiss of Death and attacking her with a red hot poker.
- Red Baron: A Beautiful Terror.
- Sadist: Despite Blue and Orange Morality, she is actively sadistic and actively enjoys the suffering and death she causes.
- Sealed Evil in a Can:
- As a youth, Cho Yon's grandfather opened a special jar that trapped her in a mass of thorny vines, and she only escaped about 18 years ago.
- Ki Seong, Anguirus, and Applejack manage to knock her into a cabin surrounded by wards that prevent her from leaving. It only lasts a few minutes before she decides to blow it up.
- Sealed Evil in a Duel: Variation: Jeog's nature means once she's picked a target, she'll never give up or replace it...which ironically means so long as Ki Seong managed to evade her, Jeog won't pick another victim, essentially locking her in a perpetual game of cat and mouse since their last encounter. However, the Baby Destroyah Incident destroyed the ward keeping her from finding Seong and set her free. However, when Jeog found out Seong loves Gentle Leaf and Anguirus, she decides to target them too.
- Serial Killer: Is responsible for the deaths of at least five members of the Cho family and then additional crew members on a shipping boat.
- Telepathy: How she communicates, since she's not capable of actually speaking.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Anguirus holds her in the burning cabin until she's been practically cremated and her skull is all that's left. Given the last time Ki Seong thought she was dead involved being caught in a fire on a sinking ship and she still survived, can't blame him for making very sure she is dead this time.
- Villainous Breakdown: Her confident, playful air vanishes when Seong manages to break out of her Kiss of Death by sheer force of will, becoming more and more frantic as she beats the Gumiho with a red hot poker. Jeog further devolves into complete panic and screaming for mercy as Anguirus drags her into a burning cabin and immolates her.
- What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: She's obsessed with experiencing love, but she doesn't understand what it actually is, so she thinks killing people and eating their hearts means taking their love.
- Will-o'-the-Wisp: Can launch icy blue pseudo flames that do not burn anything, but cause agonizing pain on contact and can cause explosions. Since they are not actually flames, they can affect beings who are immune to heat and fire.
- Would Hurt a Child: In her debut, she threatens to kill a sleeping Gentle Leaf before withdrawing.
- Bullying a Dragon: Despite knowing exactly who and what Rodan is, she insults him to his face.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She may be unpleasant, but she flies over to rescue as many falling citizens as she can without hesitation when the Neighagra Falls stadium collapses.
- Never My Fault: She still blames Rainbow Dash for getting her kicked out of Wonderbolts Academy, even though that was a result of her own actions that endangered citizens.

- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Although she can barely stand Gilda, she works with her to try to bring Rainbow Dash down.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She may be unpleasant, but she flies over to rescue as many falling citizens as she can without hesitation when the Neighagra Falls stadium collapses. She also warns Rodan about Rainbow Dash after believing incorrectly that Rainbow was just using him to get ahead.
- Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Although she can barely stand Lightning Dust, she works with her to try to bring Rainbow Dash down.
- Arranged Marriage: Was in one with Ki Seong.

- Don't You Dare Pity Me!: She becomes very angry if she perceives others taking it easy on her.
- Evil Counterpart: After a bit of observation and self reflection, she realizes she is Mariner Chibi Moon's evil counterpart. They are both prodigies with destructive powers. While Chibi got Godzilla Junior as a mentor who taught her to control her destructive potential, the only mentor Starlight got was King Sombra, and she gave in to her hate.
- Freudian Excuse: She's obsessed with making everypony equal because her childhood friend Sunburst and her older sister Moonbeam seemingly abandoned her after gaining their special talents. Also, when she took the entrance exam for Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns, the testers doubted her because she didn't have a Cutie Mark.
- HeelFace Turn: After being freed from Ghidorah's control and seeing the consequences of her actions, she attempts to atone.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: After their brief confrontation, Ghidorah erases her memory of the event.
- Manchurian Agent: Ghidorah puts a subtle adjustment to her mind that makes her subconsciously target Godzilla Junior.
- The Power of Hate: Many of her spells are powered by her anger and wrath. That's because she learned them from King Sombra's spellbook.
- Power Incontinence: She tried using Sombra's spells to pass her entrance exam, but she lost control of her magic and nearly brought the building down. Also, she was continuously firing beams until she finally calmed down.
- Power Nullifier: She can remove a pony's Cutie Mark and take away their talents. If she uses the spell on a non-pony, it drains their energy instead.
- Super Empowering: She gives her own Cutie Mark to Night Glider, giving her a massive power boost that allows her to help stop Nightmare Godzilla.
- Wouldn't Hurt a Child: She would never attempt to harm a child or steal their Cutie Mark. She's horrified to discover she kidnapped Chibi Moon and stole her Cutie Mark while under Ghidorah's influence.
Audria Sentry / Audria Goodwing
- Action Survivor: During the Gyaos attack on Appleloosa, one invades his home and bites his arm until he manages to slam a door on its head and wound it. This action saves his life as the other Gyaos turned on and devoured their wounded member.

- The Stoic: Rodan comments that in contrast to the warm and talkative Thalia, he barely speaks or moves unless it is important.

- Clingy Jealous Girl: She becomes jealous after a misunderstanding involving Rodan and Rainbow Dash.
- Cool Teacher: Upon meeting Rodan and finding he has trouble moving in his new body, she gives him dance lessons, which greatly improve his balance and coordination.

Rodan tells her that no matter how far apart they are, she is never alone, comparing it to how stars are in reality vast distances from each other, but look like they are right next to each other. She takes it to heart.
Captain Blueberry Frost

- Benevolent Boss: To the royal guards under her command.
- Book Dumb: She admits that she isn't well educated, but she's not stupid.

- A Father to His Men: Honestly does care for her subordinates and helps grant Blade Dancer her leave.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: She often appears in scenes alongside Godzilla Junior. She might be about average height for an Earth Pony mare, but Junior is an Alicorn sized giant that makes her look absolutely tiny by comparison. The image to the right is them standing next to each other and she doesn't even come up past his torso.
- Let's Get Dangerous!: When it's time to get serious, such as during the Gyaos attack; she quite effective at organizing the guards.
- Medals for Everyone: When the Gyaos attack Canterlot, she helps get some of younger guards in line by telling them they're promoted once the night's over.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Is quite laid back and thinks through a situation before making a judgement. Upon getting the kaiju problem sorted out, she volunteers to enroll Godzilla in the guard program to keep an eye on him for his own good.
- Secret Test of Character: Gave Godzilla Junior one when testing to see if he'd launch a counter attack upon awakening or launch an escape attempt when in transport. When he didn't and showed restraint against an unruly guard, she knew he was on the up and up.

- Bodyguard Crush: Joined the Royal Guard because he lusts after Princess Luna.
- Bullying a Dragon: Despite seeing Godzilla's power, and seeing that his punches and baton strikes have no effect on him, he still taunts him and then tries to kill him. This lands him in the infirmary.
- Casanova Wannabe: According to Blade Dancer and Blueberry Frost, he's constantly harassing mares and even sneaking into the female barracks, thinking he's a stud. The guards all agree his chances of getting into Princess Luna's bed are zero.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: None of his fellow guards like him for his obnoxious behavior and they mock him when Godzilla sends him to the infirmary.
- Jerkass: He's very rude and obnoxious.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Blueberry Frost says his rich parents are the only reason why he hasn't been discharged from the Royal Guard after his many infractions.
- Famous Ancestor: He's Flash Sentry's father and was often compared with their ancestors.
- The Dragonslayer: He's famous for having defeated a marauding dragon in battle.

- Living Legend: Everypony considers him one of the greatest members of the Royal Guard who ever lived.
- Manly Tears: When he came home after defeating the dragon, he cried while thinking about the orphaned Moonbeam and Starlight and how close his own son could have become an orphan.
- Memetic Badass: In-Universe. Ponies like to joke that he could beat anyone in a fight, even Godzilla Junior.
- Mentor Archetype: He trained Shining Armor and Blueberry Frost. He would have trained Flash, but he felt he was getting old, so he let Shining Armor do it.
- My Greatest Failure: He had arrived too late to save Moonbeam and Starlight Glimmer's parents and neighbors from a dragon. He was at least able to save the two.
- Retired Badass: Retired from the Royal Guard after many years of loyal service.

- When She Smiles: In a flashback, he smiles when seeing his son playing with and helping Starlight Glimmer and Sunburst. Fancy Pants is affected and remarks he had not seen him smile in a long time.
- Adaptational Heroism: While he's more than a little haughty, he's a pretty nice guy here. Apparently, the Prince Charmless who broke Rarity's heart during "The Best Night Ever" was some jerk impersonating him. Does help explain why he was noticeably better behaved in "Sweet and Elite" if we are to believe that was the real deal.
- Expecting Someone Taller: Inverted. Blueblood is already a pretty tall stallion, so he wasn't expecting Godzilla Junior's Unicorn form to tower over him.
- Famous Ancestor: He's a descendent of Princess Platinum, one of Equestria's founders.
- Mythology Gag: Word of God in the series proper states he was supposed to be "Duke Blueblood" with the "Prince" part being put in during production. The Bridge settles this by making him an Archduke, which is roughly equal in rank to a non-ruling prince.
- Rant-Inducing Slight: Captain Blueberry Frost comments that he tends to go on long winded rants whenever he gets upset, like when he found out a jerk had impersonated him and ruined his reputation.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He knows Godzilla is a hero and promises to do his best to help the Equestrians understand that, pledging to help pay off or bat away any future legal charges lobbied against the good kaiju.
- Royal Blood: Despite his name, he actually is royalty, since in this verse, he's a descendant of Princess Platinum.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: When he speaks, he uses a lot of big words and his sentences seem to go on forever.
- Try to Fit THAT on a Business Card!: His full title is "Archduke Prince apparent Auric Leon Blueblood of the Platinum Noble Household of Canterlot".
- Distracted by the Sexy: He's left gawking and stumbling over his words when he meets Mothra Lea in her Alicorn disguise.
- The Judge: While Godzilla Junior's inquiry isn't actually a trial, he serves a similar role, complete with the traditional robe and gavel.
- My Greatest Failure: Back when he was a soldier, he arrived too late to save Moonbeam and Starlight Glimmer's parents and neighbors from a dragon. He was at least able to save the two.
- Oh, Crap!: When Moonbeam Glimmer starts antagonizing Godzilla and he can't get her to shut up.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Knows Godzilla and the others are heroes and tries to help others see that.
- Retired Badass: He served as a rank 2 Sergeant medic during the Foal Mountain Dragon conflict. Military service is a tradition in his family line.
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: He's still traumatized by his greatest failure in the field and hides it by adopting his usual jovial attitude.
Mariner Chi Bi "Chibi" Moon
- The Apprentice: To her sensei, Godzilla Junior after he decided to train her.
- Audience Surrogate: Upon hearing from Junior he's been in Luna's chambers and is her bodyguard, she instantly starts shipping them.
- Ascended Extra: Of sorts. She's appeared before in the IDW comics but wasn't ever name dropped.
- Badass and Child Duo: With Godzilla Junior. Want to seriously piss off the King of the Monsters, threaten her or make her cry. Not that she's exactly helpless though.
- Calling Your Attacks: "Pink Sugar Heart Attack!"
- Cheerful Child: Has her problems now and then, but is very eager and energetic with life.
- Child Prodigy: Princess Luna notes that even at her young age, she is very talented and powerful in magic. She is a student at the School for Gifted Unicorns after all.
- Expy: Of Chibi-Usa a.k.a Sailor Chibi Moon from Sailor Moon, with her name being a synonym equivalent and looking like a pony version of her. Her parents are also close approximations of Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask.
- Fangirl: Is one for both Godzilla Junior and Princess Luna, calling the latter "Best Princess" and getting the former's hoofprint autograph.
- Genki Girl: She can't seem to stop moving and is always excited. Ironically, drinking coffee makes her slow down.
- Gratuitous Japanese: She's from Neighpon, so she can speak Japanese/Neighponese. When she's around Godzilla Junior they sometimes speak to each other this way.
- How Do I Shot Web?: She can copy powers, but controlling them is another story. Junior gives her training to control the powers she got from him.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Often accompanying her sensei, who is a Goliath of a stallion equal in size to Princess Luna whereas she's an average sized filly. Many times she can fit on and rides on Godzilla's head or shoulder.
- I Just Want to Be You: She's obsessed with emulating people she thinks are cool like Princess Luna and especially Godzilla Junior.
- Legacy Character: She's next in line to inherit the powers of the Lunar Senshi Guardian back in Neighpon, a role her mother currently bears.
- Like a Son to Me: Word of God compared her relationship to Godzilla Junior to that of a father and daughter or uncle and niece, with Chibi seeing him as a father figure since her own family is very far away.
- Master-Apprentice Chain: Godzilla Senior and King Kong -> Godzilla Junior -> Chibi Moon
- Motor Mouth: Unless she's slowed down with coffee, she talks extremely fast.
- Not So Different: Junior realizes she's rather like him when he was younger, having a huge amount of power she can't control and chasing Kong around Skull Island wanting to learn from him much like she is doing to him now. It helps encourage him to take her on as a pupil to steer her in the right path.
- Power Copying: Her special talent. Despite the fact that Godzilla's Atomic Breath is not a spell, she manages to fire a similar beam. She later copies his Nuclear Pulse with his tutoring.
- Power Incontinence: She tends to lose control of her powers when she gets really excited.
- Recoil Boost: Due to her small mass, she sometimes sent herself flying on attempts to emulate the atomic breath or nuclear pulse. She gave her teacher the idea to try the same...
- She Is All Grown Up: When Xenilla is shown a vision of the future in "A Kaiju Carol, Yet To Come", he notes that she becomes very tall and beautiful. During the Omake, she pulls off an age swapping spell between herself and Godzilla Junior, showing she'll be quite the looker as a twenty something mare.
- Shipper on Deck: The moment she found out her sensei and "Best Princess" spent a lot of time together, she got very eager and nosy.
- Spanner in the Works: Manages to derail Grand King Ghidorah's plan a total of three times: one by helping calm Junior down from being Nightmare Godzilla (foiling Ghidorah's intended battle with Nightmare Godzilla), second by being the reason Xenilla is able to become a kaiju and help his brother (ruining Ghidorah's intended one on one battle with Godzilla), and lastly, and the only one she did unintentionally, her sending herself flying with her recoil from her copy of Junior's atomic breath inspires Junior to literally fly with it, giving him a means to take Ghidorah off guard and impale him. Yes, the tiny adorable filly is a major reason King Ghidorah is defeated.
- Teleport Spam: When excited she seems to do this.
- Wave Motion Gun: She can fire a pink, heart-shaped beam that can punch right through a roof.
- Cool Teacher: A Unicorn professor assigned to teach the Crystal Ponies about the history and advances they missed during their 1000 year stasis. He also loans Xenilla books to help him master his Unicorn abilities and is an expert on magical history. He later helps lead search teams to look for either King Sombra's hiding place or his remains.
- Dramatic Irony: Seems completely oblivious to the fact Xenilla is a kaiju at first. He does later have some suspicions after seeing Xenilla display Super Strength, and then catches on after noticing Xenilla's resemblance to Godzilla.
- Fantastically Indifferent: While the kaiju being revealed is national news, he barely pays it any attention. In his mind, Godzilla seems to be a good guy for saving Canterlot, immediate danger has passed; so he'll just focus on the job he's got to do.
- Master of Unlocking: His special talent is to open any lock or door. He hints that he could even get through a wall of crystals if he had enough time.
- Mr. Exposition: Tells Xenilla and Blade Dancer what they need to know about dark magic, Aerenth, and King Sombra.
- Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction when Blade Dancer shows her the aerenth that was found and he realizes someone must be practicing powerful dark magic.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Gives the Kaiju the benefit of the doubt after hearing about Godzilla's battle against the Gyaos flock. He also vouches for Xenilla to Princess Cadance, despite the property damage he's caused after he saw Xenilla save Blade Dancer's life.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: He became a guard because he can't stand seeing others get hurt. Flashbacks show he was like this even as a baby.
- Dudley Do-Right Stops to Help: He missed a train to Canterlot because he stopped to help a colt find his lost toy and then comfort the CMC and escort them home. He stops to help people all the time.
- Famous Ancestor: Nearly every member of his family was a legendary soldier, guard, or police officer. He wants to live up to their legacy and worries he's failing at it. In The Sentry Legacy, he is comforted when he sees that each of his ancestors, even the legendary Ardent Sentry and his father, was an ordinary pony just like him.
- Friend to All Children: Many of his good deeds involve helping fillies and colts in need.
- My Greatest Failure: He's ashamed of himself because he's only been able to accomplish minor things and he's never been in the right place to help whenever a major disaster happens.
- Number Two: Seems to serve as Shining Armor's right hand, as he takes orders directly from him and coordinates the rest of the guards.
- You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Azusa Aoki assures him that the fact he does good to help others instead of for fame and fortune means he's a true hero, and the minor things he does to help matter.
Storm King's Forces
Commander Tempest Shadow
- Embarrassing Real Name: Fizzlepop Berrytwist, not the most intimidating name under Storm King.
- Villainous Breakdown: After the Canterlot invasion goes horribly, horribly wrong when Xenilla shows up and he interrogates her.
Famous Villains Grogar and his students
- Ancient Evil: All of them are at the very least a thousand years old. Grogar is far older than that.
- Dragon Ascendant: Sombra, Chrysalis, Discord, and Tirek were Grogar's disciples and went on to be Big Bad level threats in their own right.
- Physical God: All of them , especially Grogar, are leagues stronger than your average Equestrian to the point the only ones who could face them in an upfront fight at powerful alicorns or high tier kaiju. Each of them have shown the capacity to bring kingdoms to their knees on their own.
- Seven Deadly Sins: Each draw power from one of them to fuel their dark magic. Sombra is wrath, Chrysalis is lust note , Discord is gluttony note ; and Sendak along with his successor Tirek are greed. Grogar, as the inventor of Dark Magic, represents all of them, but Pride is a big one.
King Nuestro Odio Sombra
- Back from the Dead: After Gigan and Megalon retrieve his severed horn from the snow, Bagan brings him back to life. After Cadance and Xenilla kill him again, Bagan comments that he can bring him back to life whenever he feels like it. He eventually does.
- He knows of all the Crystal Empire's hidden passages and weapons. He manages to ambush Princess Cadance in her chambers and retrieves his scythe during the fight with Xenilla.
- He made a backup of the tome Gogar gave him.
- Death Amnesia: When he's brought back, the last thing he remembers is his death.
- The Dreaded: Like his canon counterpart, he's feared throughout the Crystal Empire. Key Ring nearly has a panic attack when Xenilla and Blade Dancer uncover evidence that he's returned.
- Evil Counterpart: To Xenilla of all people. They both have power over crystal and want to take over a kingdom. Xenilla is polite, knows a bit about Pragmatic Villainy, and is implied to be a bit noble deep down. Sombra is extremely egotistical and constantly expresses how much he enjoys making others suffer and die. While Xenilla's crystals can heal and empower others, Sombra's crystals are toxic.
- Evil Gloating: He just won't shut up about his superiority. Xenilla chooses to attack him while he is talking several times.
- Fantastic Racism: He thinks Unicorns are the best, and hates the Crystal Empire's past ruler Princess Amore Diamante for being a noble Unicorn who chose a Pegasus as a husband. He also repeatedly calls Xenilla a mongrel or beast because he can tell he isn't really a Unicorn. He also refers to King Caesar as a mongrel dog.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: He was an ordinary Unicorn until he acquired dark magic.
- Gemstone Assault: He can create and control constructs of black crystal called Aerenth. Aerenth is apparently toxic to those who don't practice dark magic because it is loaded with negative emotions like hate.
- Healing Factor: His healing is sped up the more he concentrates on anger and hate.
- Home Field Advantage: Since he's memorized the layout of the Crystal Empire and knows where all the passages and hidden weapons are, he has quite an advantage over others who don't.
- If I Can't Have You...: Heavily hinted he murdered Princess Amore for choosing another stallion as a husband instead of him.
- I Know What You Fear: He can cause others to hallucinate their greatest fears.
- Large and in Charge: He's a king who's roughly the same size as Xenilla's pony form, and Xenilla is huge.
- Living Shadow: Can transform into one to sneak around or evade attacks.
- Meaningful Name: His full name roughly translates to "Our Hated Shadow". His original name, Saros, is a term for a time frame used to predict eclipses, and eclipses make shadows.
- Meaningful Rename: He used to be called Archmage Saros, but changed it to symbolize his commitment to the power of darkness and hate.
- Never Found the Body: There seems to not be a trace of him left after Princess Cadance and Xenilla blast him simultaneously. Xenilla notes that they should probably check for his remains anyway, especially since he came back before. Bagan confirmed he is dead again, not that it matters.
- The Power of Hate: His dark magic runs on negative emotions like hatred and fear. Chrysalis lists Wrath as what he represented among Grogar's students.
- Pride: His ego cannot take anybody being able to best him or being unimpressed by him.
- Professor Guinea Pig: He experimented on himself to increase his strength, durability, and magical ability.
- Properly Paranoid: He berates Chrysalis for making a deal with Bagan, saying the being cannot be trusted. Given Bagan's true nature, he is entirely correct.
- Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: He muses that he would like to assert his superiority to Princess Cadance by raping her, but since he's short on patience, he'll settle for killing her.
- Sinister Scythe: Wields one against Xenilla.
- The Social Darwinist: While plotting to do away with Cadance, he muses that he will purge the Crystal Empire of the weak and useless.
- The Starscream: Is resurrected by Bagan again to help Chrysalis release the seal on Tambelon, but like her is doing so for Grogar in hopes the Nexus of Dark Magic will kill Bagan after being released.
- Super Strength: He can stomp the ground hard enough to crack it and trade blows with Xenilla.
- Super Toughness: He can take direct hits from Xenilla's Corona Ray without getting vaporized, only suffering Clothing Damage and singed fur. He can also shrug off Xenilla and Cadance's super strong punches.
- Unskilled, but Strong: It is mentioned his strength and durability is roughly equal to Xenilla's pony form, but he treated physical combat as beneath him and preferred to just use his magic, so he has less combat experience. He is however, quite handy with a scythe.
- Unwitting Pawn: Bagan brought him back to life knowing he would try to take back the Crystal Empire, and was patiently waiting for him to do so as this serves his own purposes. Sombra was unaware of him until he was brought back a second time.
- The Usurper: He gained control of the Crystal Empire a 1000 years ago by murdering Princess Amore.
- Villain Cred: Queen Chrysalis cites some of his accomplishments with pride and says he would be a good partner if he were still around.
- Villainous Breakdown: When he sees Princess Cadance in full armor and mistakes her for Princess Amore, he starts screaming that it's impossible because he killed her himself. After realizing his error, he then starts ranting about his hatred of Amore, then attacks. He goes berserk again when Cadance gives him a bloody nose.
- Villainous Legacy: A young Starlight Glimmer found his spellbook and turned to dark magic as a result.
- Would Hit a Girl: He killed Princess Amore and wants to kill Princess Cadance.
- Would Hurt a Child: While spying on Cadance, when he sees her playing with a colt in a wheelchair, he is disgusted and says weaklings like him will be the first to die once he reclaims the Crystal Empire.
- Bystander Syndrome: Since he doesn't really care about anypony besides Fluttershy, he is mostly indifferent to the swarm of Destroyah babies overrunning Ponyville and leaves as soon as it's tea time. After the conflict is over, Fluttershy has to shame him into repairing the town with his powers.
- Complete Immortality: One of the Destroyah babies blows his head apart. His body just calmly snaps his fingers and he has a new head.
- Fourth-Wall Observer: He references Toho's website and even TV Tropes itself while trying to figure out the Kaiju. Cranked Up to Eleven for the April Fool's Day special.
- Literal Genie: Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie ask him to make the Destroyah babies stop eating all the food. Similar to Twilight's blunder against the Parasprites, he makes them start eating everything else, though in his case he simply doesn't care.
- Reality Warper: He can summon a Kindle-Fire that links to the real world's Internet, alter a creature's metabolism, you name it.
- Villainous Glutton: His Dark Magic is apparently powered by Gluttony, but in the larger sense of excess and hedonism, which fits him quite well. He represented this sin among Grogar's students.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: Queen of the Changelings and so powerful only incredibly skilled soldiers or Physical God tier beings can hope to fight her one on one.
- Big Bad: Of The Bridge: The Eclipse Times, which takes place during her original attack a thousand years ago.
- The Chessmaster: In addition to her plan from canon, there's also her attack a thousand years ago: where her fellow villains and disciples of Grogar all launched direct assaults on Equestria or the Empire, Chrysalis waited, biding her time until the opportunity struck. That opportunity came when Celestia banished Luna and went into a Heroic BSoD, at which point she began her invasion aiming at important targets rather than going straight for Celestia and the other Equestrian rulers of the time as most of the other villains had.
- Did You Just Scam Cthulhu?: Intends to do this to Bagan when offered a Villain Team-Up, intending to exploit it to restore Grogar to his full power, fully expecting them to fight and having her money on Grogar to win. So far, she's successfully doing so.
- The Dreaded: Most of the ponies fear her return ever since the Canterlot Wedding incident. During her rampage a 1000 years ago, she also had this reputation, to the point trained soldiers were afraid to even fight her head on.
- Evil Counterpart: She's one to Princess Celestia, Princess Cadance, and her Mirror World counterpart Duchess Chrysalis.
- The Ghost: She is mentioned often but doesn't appear in the story until Chapter 31.
- Insect Queen: Of the Changelings.
- Kill Em All: What she did in Timbucktu.
- Knight of Cerebus: The story wasn't exactly light hearted, but the moment she's introduced in The Eclipse Times, things get serious fast.
- Lust: Says her dark magic is powered by it. Lust for power, lust for pleasures, lust for revenge, etc. Focusing on her feelings of lust can increase her power as well.
- Know When to Fold 'Em: Was smart enough to fall back and hide after her fellow Grogar disciples Discord and Tirek were defeated a thousand years ago and bide her time.
- Person of Mass Destruction: If she and the Changelings are left unchecked, they're very capable of destroying entire cities. And have. Timbuctu was reduced to a scorched ruin with no survivors in short order when it fell to Chrysalis. Word of God points out her style of attack trumps the majority of kaiju in terms of fatality ratio, with the first two Godzillas, the Ghidorahs, and Bagan himself being the only exceptions. In terms of personal power, her beams can melt metal and solid rock and she has enough sheer physical power to causally shatter solid stone with her bare hooves.
- Power Perversion Potential: Hints that she seduced King Sombra in the past by shape shifting into Princess Amore, whom he had desired.
- Rape, Pillage, and Burn: Minus the first part, this was what she did to Timbucktu and presumably other places, though 'pillage' in this case refers more to love than to possessions. By the time Commander Hurricane and the others arrived, the city was a smoldering ruin with the entire population drained of love and slaughtered.
- Revenge: Her main goal is to get revenge on Celestia, Twilight Sparkle, and the others who previously defeated her.
- The Starscream: Joins Bagan's Villain Team-Up, but has her own agenda to use the team up to restore her teacher, Grogar, knowing full well he and Bagan will duke it out once that happens. Her money is on Grogar.
- Super Strength: Is physically powerful enough to shatter a huge stone pillar being dropped on her with an Offhand Backhand.
- Telepathy: She apparently has the ability to command any Changeling, no matter how far away they are.
- Villain Team-Up: Legion visits her and convinces her to form an alliance with Bagan. However, she instantly decides to use the team up to restore her teacher, the Nexus of Dark Magic Grogar as part of her own agenda. She ends up teaming up with a resurrected Sombra to do this.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: As a Changeling, she has the ability to alter her form.
- Would Hurt a Child: Her attack on Timbucktu left no survivors. It's made quite clear that included children.
- Evil-Detecting Dog: Seems to set these off, as King Caesar, a Diamond Dog at the time was able to sense his sheer evil a good bit before he saw him.
- Genius Bruiser: Chrysalis notes that he has good wits and is an excellent schemer, but also very powerful. It's for this reason she considered him her go to for a Villain Team-Up before being incapable of finding him.
- Greed: Is the source his Dark Magic.
- Person of Mass Destruction: According to Word of God, at his strongest he's in the same tier as some of the stronger kaiju.
- Villain of Another Story: Was the threat that King Caesar was called to Equus to help defeat, though we don't see much of it.
- Adaptational Badass: The original Grogar was one of the strongest villains in G1 and a Hero Killer, but this one is even stronger. To the point that he's one of the three most powerful beings in both universes, matched only by Bagan and Harmony.
- Ancient Evil: Is at least a thousand years old and as Tirek's predecessor was ancient by that point, it's implied he's much older than that. Given he's a Nexus of Magic, it's likely he is very old indeed.
- Animalistic Abomination: Legion describes his presence as being comparable only to Bagan's and the Tome of Eldritch Lore he gave to Chrysalis is described as being hideous and evil in every description, right down to the sound of the words being read. Word of God even describes him as being less of a goat and more of a demonic monster in the shape of one.
- Big Bad: Seems to be being built up as second one, both by Word of God comments and by the Bad Future Empress Flurry Heart is from, where he's listed as being one of the causes of it.
- Dark Is Evil: Is a master of Dark Magic, and while that isn't inherently evil (in fact Luna is a user of it), Grogar definitely is. In fact he's both the Greater-Scope Villain to Discord, Chrysalis, Tirek, and Sombra and the very nexus of Dark Magic itself, making him a more or less literal version of this trope.
- Destroyer Deity: Empress Flurry Heart's record seems to refer to him as such, also referring to Harmony as Creation and Bagan as Extinction. It's eventually revealed he originally was the God of Destruction and played a positive role.
- Evil Counterpart: Another to Harmony: he's another nexus of magic like Harmony and Bagan, but is the nexus of dark magic and the teacher of some of Equestria's worst evils.
- Evil Mentor: Sombra cites him as his master in dark magic. Chrysalis reveals she, Tirek, and Discord also learned it from him and he's the 'nexus' of it.
- Evil vs. Evil: Chrysalis outright expects this to the case between him and Bagan if she manages to fully restore him. She expects Grogar to win, and he's one of the few that would have any chance of doing so.
- Fallen Hero: A few images and impressions Harmony sends Wysteria hint that Grogar was once a more noble being than he is today.
- Female Angel, Male Demon: Like Bagan, the male demon to Harmony's female angel.
- God Couple: It's implied that he and Harmony were in a relationship once in the images Harmony sends Wysteria.
- God of Evil: Is the God of Dark Magic, and on the same tier as Harmony and Bagan. Empress Flurry Heart's report seems to refer to him as the God of Destruction. However, Word of God points out he's not this trope simply for being the Nexus of Dark Magic (which is shown by Luna using dark magic herself and Celestia's canon usage of it), rather like Bagan is this due to his choices and actions.
- It's eventually revealed he and Harmony were a God Couple at one point and Grogar's original purpose was being the God of Destruction.
- Greater-Scope Villain: Was King Sombra's magic teacher. And Chrysalis', Tirek's, and Discord's as well. In fact, Chrysalis implies he's the reason a thousand years ago was such a busy time for monstrous evils. After Legion comes to her with an offer of a Villain Team-Up, Chrysalis decides to take the opportunity to try and restore him to his full power. He also created the Windigos, who fathered the Sirens, and thus is responsible for both.
- Magic A Is Magic A: Dark Magic is notably different from the magic most Equestrians and even Terrans use and he was a master of it. He's revealed to be a 'nexus' of it, like Bagan and Harmony are of their respective types.
- Monster Progenitor: Besides the Windigos, it's implied that he's created numerous other monsters, like Chimeras.
- Person of Mass Destruction: Remember how Bagan caused a global mass extinction attack in a day? Grogar is capable of destruction on the same scale. He's eventually revealed to be God of Destruction, and his own rampage several millennia ago manages to be on an equal tier to Bagan's.
- Physical God: Both the description of him being the 'Nexus' of Dark Magic like Bagan and Harmony are for their particular types and Legion's only comparison to what his power feels like being Bagan's own implies he's on the same tier as both of them are. Chrysalis later states the only one that's ever matched him was Harmony herself, who just barely won and sealed him away, confirming he is indeed on the same level as the other two. For perspective, this means that, like them, even Grand King Ghidorah would be no match at all for him. This is eventually revealed to be undoubtably the case, with his rampage that got him sealed being near indistinguishable from Bagan's in terms of scope.
- The Power of Hate: Taught King Sombra dark magic running on this, implying he knows it as well. Later revelations show he invented it. His creations the Windigos also run on it.
- Pride: Word of God notes while he technically represents all of the Seven Deadly Sins (as the creator of dark magic), he represents this one majorly. He ultimately came to believe that as he was a god, he is incapable of making mistakes and thus any choice he makes is inevitably the right one, and chose to wipe Equus clean and remake it as perfect in his mind.
- Red Baron: The Shadow King (according to promo art).
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Is currently imprisoned in Tambelon by Harmony with the help of six heroic mortals, the entrance being beneath the Crystal Empire. Breaking his seal requires something of Harmony's magic and a spell split between the four tomes he gave his students.
- Seven Deadly Sins: His students represent four of them: Discord was Gluttony (in the sense of hedonism), Chrysalis is Lust, King Sombra was Wrath, and Sendak was Greed until he died and passed it onto Lord Tirek. The Windigos, his creations, seem to also fit the sin of Wrath as well. According to Word of God, Grogar himself represents all of them.
- Sizeshifter: According to Word of God, he's capable of doing this as is Harmony.
Mako Island and Aquastria
- Death by Despair: She died both from the strain of creating The Shroud and the grief from her two daughters willingly offering themselves as slaves to save Mako.
- The High Queen: By all accounts she was a just and wise ruler.
- Large and in Charge: Junior judges that by her statue, she's about the same size as Princess Celestia.
- Meaningful Name: In Greek myth, Amatheia is the sea nymph responsible for nursing young fish, just like how the queen guided and united the Mermares.
- Our Founder: She united the Mermares into a single civilization, and she has a life size statue in Mako Island. Her successors just have busts.
- Posthumous Character: She's been dead for about a thousand years.
Princess Melpomene Sairíne
- Death by Childbirth: She died giving birth to Sonata Dusk.
- Fallen Princess: Along with her sister, she was exiled.
- Meaningful Name: In Greek myth, Melpomene is the Muse of Tragedy, and her life is one big tragedy.
- Missing Mom: She only got to raise Adaigo for a short time before dying bringing Sonata into the world.
- Posthumous Character: She's been dead for about a thousand years.
- You Can't Go Home Again: She and her sister Hymnia offered themselves as slaves to convince some powerful invaders to leave Mako alone. Several months later, they escaped and were pregnant. When they tried to return to Mako, the Shroud reacted to the dark magic within their unborn children and prevented them from passing it. Although some tried to help them come home, others feared that their children would be abominations and exiled them.
Princess Hymnia Sairíne
- Deceased Parents Are the Best: For however the Sirens ended up, she seems to have genuinely loved them and cared for them in their infancy because Adagio and to an extent Aria note have fond memories of her.
- Fallen Princess: Was the princess of the Mako Island mermares with her mother as the queen. When she died however, she was living out on her own raising three children.
- Meaningful Name: In Greek myth, Hymnia was the keeper of a sacred song who lost her innocence. Princess Hymnia was raped and later passed her magical love song to her daughter Aria.
- Missing Mom: Aria's mother and Adagio & Sonata's aunt, she apparently died in a storm when the first two were very young and Sonata was still a toddler.
- Our Mermaids Are Different: As a mermare, she's a hippocampus that has access to various song based magic and can transform into a land mare temporarily. She also crossbred with an unknown partner to give birth to the siren, Aria Blaze.
- Posthumous Character: By time we get references to her, she's been dead for about a millennia.
- Small Role, Big Impact: Disgraced and exiled mermare princess living a thousand years ago was responsible for bringing up the Sirens and teaching them a magical song that induced The Power of Love, but they forgot it due to their young ages. Aria ends up remembering it, eventually helping save the Sirens' and Monster X's life in the conflicts with Enjin and Kaizer Ghidorah. Without Hymnia, Bagan's plan would have worked.
- You Can't Go Home Again: She and her sister Melpomene offered themselves as slaves to convince some powerful invaders to leave Mako alone. Several months later, they escaped and were pregnant. When they tried to return to Mako, the Shroud reacted to the dark magic within their unborn children and prevented them from passing it. Although some tried to help them come home, others feared that their children would be abominations and exiled them.

- Ascended Extra: Hails from the Under The Sparkling Sea book but has never appeared in the show.
- Our Mermaids Are Different: As a seapony, she's much smaller than a mermare and resembles a large seahorse.

- Damsel in Distress: Was kidnapped by pirates when she was young before she was the queen, being rescued by a young Shining Armor and Blueberry Frost.
- Eating the Eye Candy: Formalities and him not being perfect didn't stop her from eyeing up Godzilla Junior's equine form.
- Hidden Elf Village: Averted. While the perpetual storms that surrounded the atoll are there to stay, it's not by her choice and she wants to open Mako up to the world.
- Large and in Charge: Averted, she's actually a bit smaller than average for the species.
- Shout-Out: Her name and coloration is a reference to the species, Maui's Dolphin; rather than the Polynesian mythology figure.
Mariner Serena Moon and Ensemble Shroud

- Klingon Promotion: She used to be a pawn to the evil Nyx Metallia who provided her power...until she used the Power Of Hate to kill and consume Metallia, becoming the true one running the show.
- Neck Snap: How she killed Golden Glow.
- Sorcerous Overlord: Ruler of the Negaverse and an extremely powerful witch.
- Super Strength: She's roughly as strong as Princess Celestia, meaning she's actually stronger than most of the Kaiju's Equestrian forms.

- It's Personal: With Chrysalis, after the destruction of Timbucktu and death of his friend Orion at her hooves.

Captain Ardent Sentry
- Due to the Dead: While searching the ruins of Timbucktu with the rest of Hurricane's group, she takes a moment to put a deceased child's teddy bear back in their hooves and close their eyes in this trope.
- Famous Ancestor: She is Stalwart and Flash Sentry's ancestor, the founder of the Sentry family.
- Heroic Bastard: Her mother, Speedy Service, was never married and her father is not recorded in history. The Sentry family know who he is, but keep it a secret from Flash until they feel he is ready to know. Her biological father is Commander Hurricane.
- Meaningful Rename: Her original name was Ardent Service, but she changed to to Ardent Sentry when she joined the military.
- Posthumous Character: Having lived about a thousand years ago, she's not around now.
- Strong Family Resemblance: She has similar eyes and mane to her father Commander Hurricane.
- Take Up My Sword: She puts on Commander Hurricane's armor and lance along with a bottle of fur dye potion to impersonate him during the battle at Trot once he became too injured to keep fighting to both fight Chrysalis herself and keep morale up.
- Bad Dreams: After accidentally antagonizing Celestia while she was unwell and making her lash out, he has nightmares of her burning everything to the ground.
- Only Sane Man: He's a member of the Nights, a group that maintains loyalty to the banished Nightmare Moon/Princess Luna. He seems to be the only member who isn't a crazed fanatic who wants Princess Celestia destroyed because they see her as the ultimate evil. Instead, he has legitimate concerns over whether Celestia is fit to rule and wants to know the full story of Nightmare Moon's banishment so that they can understand the circumstances. He also understands the Changelings are a threat to all and convinces the Nights (who didn't care as they thought it was the sun-loving ponies' problem) to help fight them.
- Posthumous Character: Having lived about a thousand years ago, he's not around now.
Princess Amore Diamante
- Posthumous Character: She was murdered by King Sombra roughly a thousand years ago.

- Hopeless Boss Fight: She was the only veteran Guardian on a team full of rookies. Knowing her team didn't stand a chance, she knowingly jumped into the Negaverse to fight Queen Beryl one-on-one to save her team. She knew the moment she enganged that she was going to die, it was just a matter of saving her squad and stopping Beryl's plot first.
- Legacy Character: She was the 37th bearer of the Lunar Guardian powers from the Silver Crystal. Her successors include the current bearer, Serena and eventually Chibi Moon.
- Posthumous Character: Queen Beryl killed her three and a half centuries ago. Subverted when Beryl uses her body to make the DD Girl.
Empress Flurry Heart
- Artificial Limbs: One of her wings is mechanical.
- Future Badass: She's a teenage version of Cadance and Shining Armor's unborn daughter, and has been living through an absolute war.
- Kid from the Future: At least a fifteen years or so given Cadance is only pregnant with her present day counterpart right now.
- Red Baron: Empress of Imperial Remnant, Defender of the Equestrian Realm and Mover of the Sun and Moon.
- Scars Are Forever: She has scars across her face.
- Set Right What Once Went Wrong: In her timeline, Bagan and Grogar both devastated the universes, and several characters including her parents were killed, even though it appears that they were stopped from completely destroying them. To prevent this, she travels back in time and temporarily transports Azusa Aoki to Equestria so she can calm down Godzilla Junior and urge him to forgive Xenilla and stop trying to kill him, implying Xenilla is vital to the good guy's victory. His forgiveness and opening up as a result also made the Nightmare Godzilla incident end a lot better than it did in Flurry Heart's timeline, where at best things ended with Starlight dead and a highly destructive battle between Nightmare Godzilla and Grand King Ghidorah that may have ended in Junior's death win lose or draw.
- Winged Unicorn: She was born an Alicorn.
Harmony (Big Good)
- Adorkable: Has her moments, like when she's speaking to Wysteria and uses "out of hoof" instead of "out of hand", then tries to deny it, and has trouble admitting that she's a friend after her well-meaning attempt to comfort the woman after her husband's death backfires.
- All-Loving Heroine: Will leap at any opportunity to reform evil characters and can see potential good in practically everyone. She's even willing to offer Bagan a second chance after seeing his past as Reijuu and after she seemingly seals away Bagan, her only emotion is regret that she didn't have the power to restrain and try to help him.
- Animalistic Abomination: While she's beautiful and benevolent, Word of God stresses she's not a pony anymore than Bagan is a dragon or Grogar is a ram. She just looks like one.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: She's the sentient mind and soul◊ of the tree of harmony.
- Big Good: Appears to be so for Equestria proper in a Man Behind the Man fashion, giving both the Equestrians and beyond useful relics of great power to protect themselves. At some point in the past, she fought Grogar and sealed him away in Tambelon.
- Chain Pain: One of her powers is creating a chain made out of stars that have the power to bind evil; the more evil the prisoner is, the stronger the chain becomes. Unfortunately, since Bagan does not consider himself nor his actions evil, he's able to break it.
- The Conscience: Acts like this towards Monster X and Irys, speaking to them on several occasions to keep them from doing acts of excessive violence.
- The Corrupter: Inverted. She fully recognizes the good qualities present in Irys's group of friends, and hopes that she'll be able to influence them into pulling a HeelFace Turn.
- Divine Intervention: Sends out a magical flare to blind and kill an attacking gyaos to save Twilight Sparkle. Even Bagan damaging her connection to Equus doesn't stop her: she manages to provide enough of a push to help the souls of Grand King Ghidorah's victims allow Godzilla Sr. to return from the afterlife just long enough to help his sons kill the King of Terror.
- Female Angel, Male Demon: Contrasting with the two male Big Bad.
- God Couple: It's hinted that she and Grogar used to be this before they had a falling out, especially since the images and impressions she sends to Wysteria to try and comfort her mix up a bit with Wysteria's memories of her own deceased husband, in comparison to the images of Celestia and Luna mixing with Gloriosa and Timber Spruce, especially since he seems to lack the red eyes he sports later.
- God Is Good: Gave away chunks of her own power to create the Elements of Harmony, Silver Crystal, and Rainbow Power for mortals to use, is implied to be the progenitor of all good magic; and created Celestia and Luna to act as protectors to the realm.
- God of Good: Being the goddess of harmony, she's this.
- God's Hands Are Tied: She would really like to get involved personally, but she can only leave her realm for short periods of time, so she has to resort to speaking to and manipulating others. When she does fight Bagan, she's able to fight him to a stand still and Bagan admits he currently can't kill her. Unfortunately, the battle severely damaged the Tree of Harmony and the Elements of Harmony, preventing her from communicating with the outside world until the items heal...but that's still not enough to prevent her from pitching in to help Godzilla Sr.'s soul return to help his sons destroy Grand King Ghidorah and foil Bagan's curren plan. She seems to have been more active in the past, as she fought and imprisoned Grogar in his own realm of Tambelon.
- She later admits to Wysteria that part of the reason why she limits herself is a vow not too overly interfere with mortal lives, after an event/mistake involving the Pillars.
- Godzilla Threshold: Word of God implies if things go very far south, she might reunite all her scattered power to regain her true strength. Given Celestia and Luna are implied to be parts of that, it's unknown what that would do to them.
- Good Counterpart: To the Big Bad Bagan. Both are one of the most ancient beings in their respective dimensions, are Physical God tier powerhouses, had a hand in inventing or perpetuating magic on Equestria and Terra respectively; and are sealed away in one form or another after losing some of their power. However, she willingly exiled herself inside the Tree of Harmony and gave away her power to form the Elements of Harmony and Rainbow Power. She also is this literally to Grogar.
- Hearing Voices: Typical method of communication. Her tone is often compared to a wind chime.
- Killer Rabbit: While larger than any other Equestrian, she still looks like a pony. She's one of the most powerful beings in existence and could curbstomp Grand King Ghidorah at only 30-40 percent of her power. Bagan outright admits that anyone on his team other than himself wouldn't have stood a chance against her, and even he can only manage a tie.
- Laser Blade: Able to create one hundreds of meters long projected out of her horn.
- Living MacGuffin: Because she was the one to seal it away, only she or something very similar to her magic can open Tambelon and Grogar's tomb.
- Mysterious Backer: Doesn't make her presence known much, but does influence Equestria on occasion. Such as sending King Caesar into its past to presumably aid against Tirek.
- The Needs of the Many: She isn't a huge fan of the lethality the Kaiju employ when fighting their enemies. That said, she considers their use of lethal force to be appropriate to the situation given just how ruthless their enemies are and how many innocent lives are at stake.
- No Man Should Have This Power: Her primary motivation for dividing her powers in the first place, she was afraid that if she ever became corrupted or lost her head, Equestria would have no means of defending itself should she try to destroy them.
- Physical God: Don't let the fact she can't directly get involved fool you, she's extremely powerful. So much so Bagan is currently incapable of killing her and admits even King Ghidorah wouldn't have been a match for her. Just a portion of her power in the form of The Elements of Harmony have proven enough to overcome every enemy that has threatened Equestria, including Discord.
- Sizeshifter: According to Word of God, she's capable of this if she wishes as can Grogar.
- Statuesque Stunner: Judging from the vague outline we see and the feminine voice, she's quite tall and towers over Twilight.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: Zigzagged. She wholly dislikes herself or others using lethal force, but she knows it's necessary in extreme cases.
- Truly Single Parent: She created Celestia and Luna.
