Best My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Characters

The Top Ten

1 Rainbow Dash Rainbow Dash is a female Pegasus pony from the 2010 kid's show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She represents the element of loyalty and is one of the 6 main characters on the show. ...read more.

I know she isn't a perfect character, and I think that's what I like about her so much. She messes up and is full of herself sometimes, but she's also extremely loyal and willing to go to great lengths for her friends. She also just proceeded to get better as the show progressed rather than digressing like Twilight did. All I feel that Twilight did as the princess of friendship - which I still feel is an undeserving reward and position for her. I mean, she got there because of her friends, but do they all get promoted to princesses? Nope! Anyway - was get into more trouble and become more of a jerk to her friends and even to other ponies. Did you see what she did to Celestia when she didn't tell her the truth about her acting in the play?! She was pretty insensitive to the RULER of the nation! But Twilight only gets a slap on the hoof, while people complain that Rainbow Dash doesn't get in trouble for what she does. A lot of what Rainbow does is for selfish motivations, yes, but she ...more

Even though Rainbow Dash is tough, she showed that any female can be dominant in herself and take others to make them stronger is why she deserves to be the element of loyalty. She even showed she always stands up for her element when in the 7th episode of season 3 when Lightening Dust didn't care about the others flyers by bragging about being the high skilled character and not being careful for the surroundings near her. And right there that showed me that Rainbow Dash was bold enough to face Lightening Dust in her wrong doing actions of almost hurting her friends. Too me, Rainbow Dash is a badass on my list. Her personality might be a little rude, but she in the end shows she's fits in her element called loyalty.

rainbow dash is a clear example of a backstory doing wonders for a character. I'm not saying her overly cheerful parents excuse her past behaviors, but it does EXPLAIN it.

even outside of her backstory, I've always loved rainbow dash. out of all the mane six, she is the only one who shows to be constantly morally gray, which is really interesting for a show like MLP. yes, shes a HUGE egotist, but at the end of the day, she always means well. episodes like "wonderbolts academy", "hurricane fluttershy", and "sleepless in ponyville" show this. I LOVE her relationship with scootaloo. overall, rainbow dash is a great character who mean well despite being quite dividing sometimes.

And, I don't know why, everyone thinks rainbow dash cares for herself. She cares for her friends in a different way, and when her friends are in trouble, she always helps them. For example, she crushed her dream for being a wonderbolt TWO TIMES! (leaving the shadowbolts part). She could also be mean to her friends at times, but that doesn't means that she is leaving her friends! And, the thing she is short tempered on fluttershy is because to make her tough as she doesn't have any other option and even fluttershy doesn't seems worried on dash's ideas. And in hurricane fluttershy, to comfort fluttershy, she tells that she's having a good progress. But fluttershy wanted to quit, so that means dash have a different means to comfort and care for each other, because she thinks everyone is strong hearted like her and want to learn the hard way. And that's the way that she is faithful to other ponies and knows that they can do that. And she even finds pinkie very irritating because dash ...more

Yeah! She might seem showing off and that but she stands up to her element the element of loyalty

2 Fluttershy Fluttershy is a female pegasus pony from the 2010-2019 animated TV show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She is a kind pegasus and is very timid and shy. She takes care of the animals. She represents the element of kindness

I just simplistically find that Fluttershy is the best pony of them all, and she is very kind and understanding, which is something that the world is seriously lacking these days, so even just watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and seeing Fluttershy be kind and often times extremely generous (especially to Angel... Like a lot, like when she went out & was generous enough to spend her own money over and over just so that Angel could have what he wanted. When he did not get the cherry on the top, he through it out. ) However, a lot of people can relate to her as well, there are a ton of kind people out there, she enjoys nature, and lives with woodland creatures around her home, where she cares and nurtures for ALL OF THEM, if she were in the real world, she would use less electricity and make less green house gases than most people to say the least.

Fluttershy, in my opinion, is the pony people can best relate too. She is so generous, and kind, which is what I admire about her. Fluttershy is very quirky in her own way, and even though she is timid a lot, I can see that she is a fun, party girl, even though you have to dig deep. Fluttershy is the type of pony that you would want to confide in, or talk about anything too. She understands everything, and loves nature. I fell in love, with Fluttershy the first time I heard her voice. She is so angelic, and even her appearance screams angelic to me. Basically, Fluttershy, in my opinion, is underrated, but she is so sweet, and lovely, and is definitely the best pony.

Where do I start? Fluttershy is the most beautiful and kind pony ever! She is not boastful, rude or mean. I love her! She is very generous and loves animals. Her biggest flaw is shyness, but stage fright isn't a sin. Everyone gets stage fright sometimes. She is very understanding and was the only one to really understand and become friends with Discord. She's the one that reformed him, and Discord thinks the world of her, since she was his only friend he ever had until he befriended the rest of the Mane 6. Fluttershy is adorable and her heart is made out of pure kindness. Her element of harmony is one of the most important ones. She isn't fussy about her looks and she has learnt to be less shy in season 5. Her voice is beautiful and she stood up to a dragon, a cockatrice, the Mane-iac, and she always helps animals and loves all creatures, big and small. FLUTTERSHY ROCKS!

Fluttershy is simply the best pony of them all this is because she was the one that got the mane sixes cuties marks not showoff Rainbow dash if Fluttershy wasn't getting picked on then Rainbow dash wouldn't of done the race and none of the mane six wouldn't of got their cutie marks in fact they wouldn't of even be friends like they are today. I also want to point out that in my opinion I don't think that Fluttershy gets much attention from her friends at all and because Rainbow dash is so loud and brags all the time people are all gonna think it's her when it's quiet ponies like Fluttershy who are really the cause off it.

3 Pinkie Pie Pinkie Pie is a major character in the 2010 show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, based on Surprise from My Little Pony G1, She represents the element of Laughter.

Pinkie Pie is no doubt the best! I'm just like her! I'm funny, I love sweets, I love making people smile, and I'm funny and crazy! Even though I'm kinda shy like Fluttershy too I'm more like Pinkie. I even get told I'm like her more. Also her signing is amazing and her lament and smile song rule! And she also makes earth ponies rule! (like Applejack who is my second favorite!) If she was real (which I believe she is don't judge me!) I would be her twin...literally! She knows how to turn frowns upside down! She makes giggles and ponies go together like milk and cookies, macaroni and cheese, sun and moon, brother and sister, balloons and party canons and parties! Pinkie is no doubt the best! Period! End of sentence! You say she's not...your wrong! Now any questions? (lol)

Pinkie Pie gets picked on more than anypony else in this show, and I don't think that's right. I can relate in a way to Pinkie Pie and I think it's unfair that she is like the doormat of her group of friends. Twilight, Rainbow Dash and Applejack have all picked on her and they make up in the end, but they need to be a little more understanding I think. Pinkie is pretty great character really.

There is nothing more wholesome than why pinkie pie wants others to smile. I love her bubbly optimism, her visual gags, and some of her episodes ("party of one", "pinkie pride") being in my top 10. a character like this should wear out, but the writers are always creative and surprising with her.

Pinkie is the sweetest and best pony. She loves making others smile and has the greatest parties! She's crazy but she accepts it. I can relate to her: I'm goofy and fun and if she was real I would be her best friend. I mean Fluttershy is cute and sweet and Rainbow is fun but she can be a little rude at times and Fluttershy is just shy. I love them too but Pinkie has a great personality. And I love her party canon and her Smile song. The smile song is my theme song! Pinkie Pie is awesome! She makes gloomy days happy and fun. She is very nice to others and respects her friends. Take Rainbow Dash from the top and put her under Pinkie as # 3 and Put Pinkie and # 1 and Fluttershy at # 2. I love to smile and I'm always happy and when I am sad or upset about something I listen to the Smile song and watch all the episodes with Pinkie mostly in it. Roll out the Party Canon and Smile!

I agree so much with you. Pinkie Pie is just so goofy and crazy (like me) and she accepts it. She respects her friends (maybe not privacy ), and she is so kind to every pony and makes them smile. I also love the smile song

4 Twilight Sparkle Twilight Sparkle is the primary main character of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. She is a female unicorn pony who transforms into an Alicorn and becomes a princess in Magical Mystery Cure.

I don't understand why Twilight is under Rainbow Dash. Don't start hating me, but in my opinion, Rainbow Dash is worst pony. All she pretty much does is bully her friends and Spike and brag about her accomplishments. She's an unintelligent, boring, slightly cowardly and disloyal character. Twilight is brave, kind, intelligent, quirky, humble, interesting, strong, and isn't over the moon about friendship (which I like). I love how she becomes a princess and sets good examples to kids (studying makes you smarter, out doesn't solve problems). She gives up all her magic to save her friends. I love her big bangs and her mane and tail. Overall, Twilight in my opinion is best pony.

Dash is a bad role model because she is a mean and selfish bully unlike Twilight who deserves to be on top here

She is the strongest and most special because of her powers, she is brave, and a great leader. And as a leader she swallows her fears to lead the other ponies and tries to keep the calm. Leaders can never show weakness, but we all have them. Twilight Sparkle know that. She shows this time after time. She can't afford to be reckless like Dash or scarred like Fluttershy, and I know it's human to have weakness, but real heros are the ones who overcome adversity and try to reach a higher level of being. Fluttershy is a mother to spike because she has to take care of him. That has to be hard for a young pony in school. She takes on all this responsibility without ever complaining. Twilight deserves the top spot. enough' said.

Ashlyn you said twilight is mean and stubborn, right? So if I say sunset shimmer is ugly and dumb?

Twilight Sparkle is a loyal, brave character. I love her! She gave up all of her alicorn magic for her friends and Discord. I have never seen a cartoon character like Twilight. Her personality is just amazing and her friends mean the world to her. I was SO happy when she became a princess. Those wings look utterly gorgeous on her! Her mane is beautiful and I love her eyes! She is super smart and can solve lots of problems. She is not a nerd. She is clever, which is a good thing. She is a great leader and is fearless. She does not brag and she is not a know-it-all just because she is smart. She has never once shown to be selfish or careless. I will always love Twilight Sparkle, she is just an amazing pony.

Although I love nearly every character on the list, Twilight Sparkle just appeals to me more. While cuteness of appearance is kind of a given for a mare -- or a filly -- I find Twilight to have a mostly adorable personality, as well, in the way that she has to consult a reference book to find out if a tree in one's home is an appropriate aspect of a sleepover, or goes from somepony who seems to care more about book than friends to a pony who has to be convinced to save the town lest she be seen as showing off. I wanna hug all the mane nine, but Twilight most of all.

5 Rarity Rarity is a female Unicorn pony from the 2010 Animated Television Series My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic. She is the element of Generosity and her main passion is fashion.

Rarity on the outside may encompass what everyone hates about being feminine like being a drama queen and too concerned with what you are wearing. However Rarity demonstrates that it's not just to make you look good it also makes you feel good. Many people like her have a passion for fashion because it is an art form that deserves appreciation. She is also very generous and will go out of her way to make sure her friends feel and look good. I love her expressions such as "Darling" and who can forget her hilarious drama induced moments "Of all the worse things that can happen this is THE WORST POSSIBLE THING! ". I don't understand why she is so low on this list, everyone can relate to an aspect of her.

I think rarity is a capable, independent mare. The way that even celebrities are her clients shows that she is a very good business pony. This also shows that she very capable and she can take care of herself. Some people think she is way too girly, like the way she faints or has so many crushes. I think the way she faints is just a way od showing her excitement and her many crushes well... That's just something that happens to people and ponies it just happens. I also think her relationship with her sister is only natural and is something that is very relatable to most of us. She does seam sort of stuck up and sometimes the opposite of her element but I think this is just something that the writers overlooked. But people should really look at her good quality.

Look. For all of you Rarity haters, if you don't like this character, then don't comment here! Just Rainbow Dash, she's more overhated than overrated! Another thing similar to both Rarity and Rainbow Dash is that even though they have some flaws, it doesn't mean she's a horrible character! In fact, there's a lot of reasons to like Rarity.

1. She's very generous, kind, elegant, and sweet once you get to know her more.
2. She cares for her little sister, Sweetie Belle.
3. She's very nice and elegant once you get to know her more.
4. She's actually pretty funny when she overacts.
5. She actually is very beautiful.
6. Her relationship with Spike is just adorable.
7. She's a great singer.
8. She cares for her friends.
9. Just like Rainbow Dash, she ACTUALLY does learn from her mistakes.

Yeah! You are right, she is not mean, stupid, whiny and dumb. She is one of the great character all time

Rarity is an awesome and underrated character. Most of the fandom disliked her because she's "sassy" but that's just who she is. In fact, it's not even wrong to be sassy or prissy. Well, being prissy can be wrong in some ways, but Rarity isn't always stuck up about it. I don't really understand why she has to be so disliked just because she's a bit girly and sort of rude to her sister. It's not like Sweetie Belle's any better to her, but of course she's liked because she's "cute". She should be WAY higher in this list. Ok, ok, she does make some mistakes and puts herself first, but she always learns from them and isn't a total show off like Trixie is. Plus, she made her friends AMAZING dresses and them, being the idiots they are, said they didn't look good. Who puts all of their time to make beautiful dresses for her friends and then takes even more time to make their dresses how they want them, even if she knew they weren't the best choose? Rarity, that's who! She's probably the best ...more

6 Applejack Applejack is a female Earth pony and one of the main characters of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. She lives and works at Sweet Apple Acres with her grandmother Granny Smith, her older brother Big McIntosh, her younger sister Apple Bloom, and her dog Winona. She represents the element of honesty. ...read more.

Honest, hardworking, tomboyish, capable, kick-ass, athletic, cool, wise, grown-up and... orange! Her accent is neat, too. Sure she's not as awesomely, flashily cool as Rainbow Dash (who I liked right off the bat), and doesn't have the absolute coolest or most beautiful, best design (Rainbow Dash & Rarity for me... Fluttershy has a really natural beauty, too), but she has her own things going for her. I like how smart and knowing of others she is, and how she really loves and takes pride in her job. Her family's kinda neat (especially Granny Smith! ) and although I'm truly a city kid she makes me really like the country side of life. Also, my favorite boy pony as a kid was Tex- the yellow one in the cowboy hat- so cool that she carries that over! Her one flaw that gets her into trouble is that stubbornness and occasionally myopic vision, but that makes her a fun character to watch (Rarity is hands down the funniest to me though, and a close second for favorite pony. That girl's a hoot- ...more

I just absolutely adore applejack. I've begun to accept that most people don't appreciate her as a main character on the show just because her character was developed almost fully before anyone else making her far less interesting but that's what I love about her. She's the most mature if them all (er, maybe not bypassing Twilight... But... ) and I get why everyone loves rainbow dash and don't get me wrong, she's my second favorite in the show, but can't you be a bad tomboy with athletic skills and adventure scenes and also be kind, sweet, generous, loyal, and honest? Yeah, she might as well be all of the elements of harmony, just saying. (And she's the only pony who uses sarcasm for her gags in the show. That earns lots if points

Applejack- our fave! The first time I realised that she was the least well-loved of the six I thought that was quite sad. We like her for her personality, her honesty, her hard-working, brave & independent nature, maturity, her upbeat, healthy athleticism & physical strength, and her down-to-earth nature. Rarity is easily our second choice, and together they are the greatest- they are so hilarious. So it's too bad that Rarity also rates lower with others, all things considered! Maybe it's because they seem like older characters, or also because they have outlier accents/stereotypes (working class country farm girl & 'posh 'girl). Admittedly like Fluttershy's sweet kindness, gentleness and natural beauty & care for nature, and Rainbow Dash's badass-ness & striking cool design, too... they are a great set of characters, all six...

Why isn't Applejack at the top. She's not shy, caring and understanding like Fluttershy, Competitive and strong like Rainbow Dash, Funny and excitable like Pinkie, Put's her heart and soul into everything like Rarity and learns valuable lessons every time she's in an episode like Twilight! Applejack is an outstanding pony who'll die hard trying to protect her family, she'll never give up no matter how hard the task is! She'll stick with her family and friends no matter what the cost (More loyal than Rainbow eh? )! And though she may seem boring or her colour isn't the most outstanding like Rarity or Rainbow Dash she's still got a fabulous personality and may I say a sad backstory (of her parents death and all..) Applejack deserves more attention and less people should be liking a stupid rainbow showoff named Rainbow Dash.

7 Princess Luna

she is the best character by far. She demonstrates that change is possible and that it is never too late to be good. She watches over every pony in their sleep and comforts them when they have nightmares. She is connected to each pony on a personal level, unlike the other princesses. She is up all night making sure that everyone is happy. She is caring and sweet. THE BEST PONY!

Luna is definitely quite attractive, with her model looks and slender shape, beautiful but not dazzling colors, and gorgeous wings you can drown in! But the reason she is so adored is not good looks by and large - she is very intriguing as a character.

Once a great hero and savior of her nation, she was overshadowed by her own sister, dared to envy and paid the ultimate price for it, which left her scarred and hurt. And after a thousand years of going mad from loneliness she returns to find out that her entire nation perceives Luna only as soul-eating bogeypony and definitely not someone who only wanted to be loved! The irony is tangible.

Just look at her in Luna Eclipsed! You can't possibly get more moe even if you dedicate your whole life to it. And yet she still manages to remain regal. And should I mention she has several centuries of life experience and is probably more entertaining company that any real-life person that you can think of?

The point I was ...more

She is the princess of darkness, the princess of the night, rainbow dash is first because she's badass, and although I agree with this, what about Luna? I can't believe she is not higher she is badass and a lot of people can relate to her as we have all felt misunderstood and lonely. Luna always wants to help people and despite her having the job of guarding the night and bringing up the moon, she also looks after people in their dreams. She tries so hard to make friends and adapt to the new times on nightmare night, she cares so much for her people, LONG LIVE THE LUNA REPUBLIC!

Princess Luna is the one that helps ponies face their fears, she is the princess of the night. I love Luna, her appearance is gorgeous and I just love her design! She cares for other ponies.

She regrets what she did as Nightmare Moon and it was because of jealousy. She longed ponies to love and appreciate her night, but Celestia's daylight is what ponies played in.

Luna Eclipsed made me love her, she was so funny and amazing! It made me feel sorry for her, when everypony was scared of her. But she enjoyed Nightmare Night in the end.

Luna is my favourite princess, she is a unique character and I love her!

8 Derpy Hooves Derpy Hooves is a female Pegasus from the 2010s kids show My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic. She is described as dumb and clumsy. Her occupation is a delivery mare.

Derpy Hooves is not my favourite background character because she's cross-eyed, she's my favourite because she accepts her difference because it makes her unique. She is special because of her unique personality and she is different. She teaches kids that it doesn't matter if you are cross-eyed or disabled, your personality and heart is what really counts. Derpy is also clumsy and adorable, but she accepts that as well. She makes mistakes, which everyone does, and no one is perfect. That's why I just adore Detpy so much.

What started out to be an animation error turned into a masterpiece. I'm so glad this error happened, because otherwise, she would just be a normal background pony without her bubble personality. I love her, and they even hid her derpiness in "Parental Glideance" while she was at the top, then she got even more cross-eyed as she went down. Truly amazing, wish she was part of the Mane 6.

Derpy Hooves is my favorite Character from the Franchise and is the Character I can Relate to. At Times, I'm Clumsy, I make Mistakes, and plenty more, and she is so ADORABLE! She is my favorite Character from the Franchise. In fact, I love her as much as I love Godzilla.

Derpy is such an inspiration to all of the Bronies and anyone else who is willing to watch the show. She is better than the system and even if society judges her, she will be the living image of what we all want to be, loved even though we are flawed

9 Discord Discord, also known as the Spirit of Disharmony, is a former-antagonist-turned-supporting-protagonist in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Discord is really funny, because it's not predictable as other characters. You never know how he will act, making you enjoy the surprise. Not to mention his incredibles powers that simply open every door and make almost all possible, and his chaotic lifestyle, relaxed and easygoing, is easy to like.

Moreover, he breaks the stereotyped vision of chaos, seen as bad. Chaos, if good provided, can be sometimes fun, and better than an order generated by a need of control. Definitely, I like Discord more than others character because with him around nobody is going to be bored!

I'm not a fan of puppeteers, but I've a nagging fear...

ah, discord. lord of chaos, voiced by the lovely john de lancie, the only character that makes fluttershy an actually passable character... I love you. never change.

I love discord. He is interesting, mischievous and funny all at the same time. He is interesting because he has a lot of character development as well as untold history about him we do not know. He is mischievous and funny as he still likes to annoy twilight sparkle from time to time and he likes to pull jokes to 'test' ponies. This is my opinion, but I would like to see discord at least at seven. I would say higher but I believe the 'mane' 6 should be the first six on the list.

The plot behind discord is really good and I loved his two part opener one of my favourite villains if not the best villain although he has been reformed he still has a evil side in him shown in twilights kingdom to be honest I'm waiting for the day he turns his back on the pony's and starts his acts of disharmony again until then he has to keep them subtle.

10 Spike

I love spike he is my fave character and I have always respected him and wish the writers did more with him as he is from my point of view the most deep character in the show. He is the one of if not the only tame dragon in a world of ponies who he has been raised by. His relation ship with twilight is also really interesting it is like mother/son, brother/sister and best friends.
I feel many of the fans can relate to spike in some of the problems he has had in the show like jealousy, fear, love drama, friendship dilemmas and not feeling needed and the problems he has are probs the reason I like him so much!
For example in owls well ends well he feels like he is going to be replaced and that twilight didn't love him anymore which was really touching for me because I no how that feels.

In dragon quest the one scene with the mirror and when he kept saying who am I where am I from who am I meant to be was super touchy for me as I felt so sorry for him. The fact that he did ...more

I love Spike! He's just so adorable and funny! I feel bad for him, though, because Rarity always ignores him and she doesn't like him back. He deserves better, although I do love Rarity- especially after the episode with her and the Diamond Dogs.
"BUT I THOUGHT YOU WANTED WHINING! "

Who could hate Spike? An idiot, that's who! Spike is so underrated and not to mention that his so called friends treat him like dirt. "Oh! Spike's stuck on an iceberg in the middle of the ocean? We'll just leave him there to fall into the water and drown! Ha! " Yes.. This literally happened.. He's such a good assistant and people take the poor guy for granted. I consider him part of the main characters and part of the entire 7, he is probably my 2nd or 3rd. Spike has shown himself to be worth more than he is but somehow fans still don't like him much...

It's a shame that Spike is not considered part of the mane six as he does so much for his friends and they treat him like crap. Rarity steals his birthday presents and Twilight treats him like a slave. It looks to me that this poor little dragon doesn't get much rest at all. This little guy gets shouted at in nearly every episode by Twilight. This guys life it totally unfair VOTE FOR SPIKE LETS GET HIM TO THE TOP!

The Contenders

11 Sunset Shimmer Sunset Shimmer is a female unicorn pony-turned-human and former antagonist introduced in My Little Pony Equestria Girls. She is a student at Canterlot High School, a former student of Princess Celestia, and a rhythm guitarist for the student band The Rainbooms.

Sunset Shimmer easily became my favorite character with the incredible development that she received. She's smart, bold, struggles with her past, and best of all, isn't perfect unlike a certain purple unicorn turned princess that I know of... Sunset Shimmer does her best to redeem herself from her past mistakes and she does really well. Another reason I like her is because she is a character that was worth redeeming and bringing to the light and she proves that with her friendships. I really wish that Sunset had replaced twilight as the leader of the group; I feel like she earned that title and position. Also, I loved the scene in the Friendship Games when she just laid into Twilight about how she shouldn't be messing around with things she doesn't understand. Sock it to her!

she is the best character by far. She demonstrates that change is possible and that it is never too late to be good. In Rainbow Rocks, the mane 6 ignored her the entire time, but she was always there for them anyway. At the end of the movie, she was the answer to defeating the antagonists. The message that she gives in "My Past is Not Today" is amazing! Also, I'm pretty sure she gains wings at the end of it. She is the best

She is friendly and learns and tries how to overcome her mistakes and her personality I love it! Plus she has almost normal looking skin and hair color and I just love her streaks. And she is more than Twilight since Twilight did the same mistake as her Twilight didn't try to correct her mistakes even if she did the same mistake as Twilight. And by seeing just her beauty Sunset is prettier in the inside and outside and Twilight is just dumb inside and out and and has a dorky style which is not in the season to be like that and hey in Equestria girls Twilight knows Sunset as the mean one and if Twilight is technically the Princess of friendship she would forgive Sunset and get her in the mane six. I mean Twilight is just not a Princess because of what she did.

She is the main reason I still continue to watch all the Equestria Girls stuff. To me she's one of the most unique characters in the franchise because there's so much mystery revolving around her, and the choices she decided to take in life. It's interesting to see her adaption to both alternate worlds, as well as her struggles to ensure now that magic leaked through Equestria stays contained in the human world. Often times you would wonder about a character like her and ask yourself, "Which side will she stick to for the rest of her life? " To this day it's still unknown, but what we do know now is that one way or another, she'll never stop surprising people.

12 Princess Celestia

Everyone loves "Luna",your typical edgy and dark character who doesn't fit in - hey everyone, love her! Celestia is brave and noble, and there's more then just that to her. Yes, she may not be the strongest pony in the world (she is very strong though) and seems to have a low amount of stamina, but its her emotions and determination that drives her. She is truly good at heart, and she seems to represent the elements of harmony, without being completely perfect. Everyone probably thinks she's some sort of mary sue, but she's not. Often, she's had had to have others step in for her. She's like Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter, wise but STILL relatable. Some say she isn't relatable, but she is. She shows that even if times are rough - even if your sister, the one you love so much, the one you HAD to banish to the moon even if you cared for her, for the safety of your kingdom is gone, you can still show kindness and generosity. I love her

There must be more people who loves the caring intelligent, brave, social princess, she did send her sister to the moon but she did it because she loved her and she cared about other ponies safety she didn't want her sister to become a monster, she didn't want to banish her to the moon, she didn't want to turn discord into stone, she didn't want to lose sunset shimmer but she had to because she wanted everything to be safe and no chaos could come to the world, she's had regrets and she has been sad but ifs her duty as a princess to make sad sacrifices and soon Luna will have to face the same problems and once Luna faces them you will probably regret not likening celestial PS: I have no problems with Luna but my problem is when people don't like celestial for doing her royal duties.

Er yeah. She may be pretty, but really!? She is basically a GOD, so no one can relate to her, its half her fault that her sister turned evil, and she banished her sister to the moon! The royal guard is useless because she probably doesn't wanna gat them hurt! Although faults make a good character, she definitely is hard t relate too. Although she is a GOD, she literally constantly fails in fighting in the series. She relies on the Elements to much. Not to mention she comes to Twilight EVERY SINGLE TIME! For all that power, she does get beat up a lot. TWO PONIES love for each other beat her up. I mean seriously! She may be a good looking character, but if there is any justice, Luna should always be in front of her. #LunaRocks

Heyyyy this is the SECOND best character. Go to princess Cadance and look for Princess KEPRI to see that opion. Celestial is the kind ruler!
=Princess Kepri

13 Scootaloo

Lauren Faust said that the reason that Scootaloo can't fly is that she has a build of an earth pony. Therefore, her bones aren't hallow and she is very dense (like all earth ponies because of their super strength) so her tiny wings don't have the ability to lift her off the ground. I love that! They have a pony in the show with a disability. She shows to all kids (especially ones with a disability) that she can still live an amazing life even if she can't fly. BEST CMC

Scootaloo is probably one of the best characters I've ever seen in cartoon history. She's my favorite on the show. She's a confident tomboy who loves to ride her scooter and looks up to Rainbow Dash, but at the same time, she's self conscious, has insecurities, and fears many things. Scootaloo is a pegasus who cannot fly, pretty interesting if you ask me. Ever since she got bullied by Diamobd Tiara and Silver Spoon in Flight to the Finish, she became more determined to fly but realized things you can't don't make you worthless, and it's okay if she doesn't fly and should use it to her advantage.

She's a very mysterious characters too. It's been 5 seasons and we still haven't seen where she lives and who she lives with.

She has some of the best episodes and moments in the show up to date. Sleepless in Ponyville and Flight to the Finish were amazing episodes that developed her character very well.

Well, that was my recap and thoughts about best pony. Hopefully ...more

No in one episode we know who scootaloo lives with and where she lives I forget which season or episode but we do finally find out

Scootaloo is probably the BEST in Cutie Mark Crusaders because she is underrated. She is underrated because everyone relates to Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle a lot! She's also a hardworking pony because she's always determined to fly and finding her cutie mark which makes me loves her more! I felt so sad when she is the last pony in the CMC that can use their abilities! Apple Bloom is an earth pony so she doesn't have any ability. Sweetie Belle is a unicorn pony but she already can use her horn in "Twilight Time" episode! Also, I found out that she along with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle is also represents "The Powerpuff Girls" So Scootaloo represents Buttercup? because she and Scootaloo shares the same personality "tomboy" and their haircuts is short! Hmm... Interestting

Scootaloo is cool, but who is her family? I feel like she lives with Rainbow Dash. But no, she just has to be mysterious.

14 Apple Bloom

I'm here because of LizzieBloom. Just kidding. I am LizzieBloom. Go Applebloom! ^^ I love her positive and sweet attitude. Go Crusaders! :D

She is awesome! Loyal to her family, kind to her friends, and accepting that she is a late bloomer with getting her cutie mark. Has a positive attitude and is definitely in the top 10 on my list!

Applebloom may not be a mane character but she is definable like me in so many ways funny adorable likes to wear bows and live on a farm and do that work all day even though I don’t live in a farm and she has three friends and she’s the leader like me except I have more friends and there are no leaders but I have three best ones and I’m tenically like the leader so I defiantly put this adorable filly in the top!

She is the cutest pony on the show. Did you see her face asking Twilight if she would stay for brunch? Adorable!

15 Trixie Trixie Lulamoon, is a female unicorn pony and traveling magician. She tends to speak in the third person and refer to herself as "The Great and Powerful Trixie".

In all honesty Trixie is my favorite character because of how realistic she is. Others despise her because of the episode Boast Buster but believe me Rainbow Dash, AppleJack and Rarity were being just as bad. Trixie is a magician, isn't it a magician's job to show how powerful and magnificent they are? Don't get me started on the other episodes that she starred in. I don't think it's right for the whole town to bully and shame her because Lil'Miss Princess of Magical Know-It-All-ness saved her butt when she couldn't, and what Twilight did to her and Starlight in No Second Prances was really uncalled for...really now.

I like Mlp. My favorite character is she, Trixie. I identify with she, because it is more credible a character endearing and with defects, is more realistic. Mane 6 are too perfect to be identifiable at least with me. Many see she as bad, but it is a character rich in history, although still unexplored. I hated Twilight in 'No second prances' because she is the 'Princess of Friendship' but rather looked like the PRINCESS OF HYPOCRISY TWILIGHT, since she did not want Starlight to be her first friend because she distrusts Trixie. In short, Trixie is a good character, and more in seasons 6 and 7. The best pony ever (for me).

Many characters are prejudicious with her. I hate when people murmur about someone, and so is ponyville, many people (ponies) with no criteria or personality as in real society. Trixie is my favorite characters, because she has more realism and personality than the hypocrites-"perfect friends" Mane 6. I do not consider myself a big fan of MLP, but I like Trixie very much as a character, and I only see it when she appears in because the six protagonists are very false and hypocrites. I also like Starlight and her friendship with her, but to the stereotyped mane 6 I hate them.

Probably she is now one of the most realistic characters in the entire MLP: FiM series, because most of the Mane 6 are basically Mary Sues (especially Twilight Sparkle) and they are too perfect and unrealistic with hollow personalities in the latest seasons (in the first seasons they were more good characters).
But Trixie is an realistic and imperfect characters. She is redeemed now, but her personality is here. She along Discord, CMC, and sonetimes Starlight are for me the best characters.

16 Starlight Glimmer Starlight Glimmer is a recurring character, initially an antagonist, in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She first appears in the season 5 premiere, The Cutie Map. From The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 2 to Celestial Advice, she is Twilight Sparkle's student in the ways of friendship.

Starlight Glimmer is my favorite pony. she is the best character by far. She demonstrates that change is possible and that it is never too late to be good. She is Twilight's student, and she picks up on the lessons really easily. I love that she wants to learn about friendship. I would even say that her magic is more powerful than Twilight's. In "The Cutie Re-Map", Twilight couldn't beat her. She is always there for the mane 6. Whenever they go on friendship lessons, she always watches the school. She is a kind and loyal friend to Trixie, spike, and the mane 6. She is the best pony

She is very powerful and learned so much about friendship. I can also relate to her because she has trouble sometimes with social cues, like when she made Big Mac talk.

Starlight Glimmer should be # 1 if you ask me. Her magical powers surpass Twilight's and she had no mentor nor is she an Alicorn. She was a great villain and I think she is even better now.

I think so many people hate her because they are Twilight Sparkle fanboys. Hey, Twilight is in my top five but I think they are just sour because she at least matches Twilight's abilities and in some areas, surpasses them.

Starlight can be a bit socially awkward like me and like me, she is sometimes reckless in trying to solve problems (Every Little Thing She Does) but it is things like that which make me like her so much...it is proof that she isn't perfect.

Many people say she ruined the show but I disagree. I think she breathed new life into the show, particularly giving Twilight a student and as has been the case recently, a good advisor. Think about it, had it not been for her, Twilight would have folded like a lawn chair to the highly unnecessary E.E.A.

Personally ...more

I used to hate starlight because I just felt like she kinda took the spotlight a little but now I see she’s an awesome character! She’s funny (very funny), loyal, kind, trustworthy, talented, and probably more powerful then twilight though probably not as powerful but she’s getting there. She always listens to everyone’s problems and always has a solution. She even battled chrysalis and stood up for Trixie when twilight was being a jerk to her. She even solved celestia and Luna problem! Overall she’s the best and shouldn’t be on 16 she should be number one!

17 Queen Chrysalis Queen Chrysalis is a female changeling who serves as the main antagonist for the season 2 finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

She deserved a redemption, she was a great queen, treats her nation well, has the best villan song, and was a better ruler of the christal empire then Cadence. She is defenently my favorite character.

Here is how I think the season 6 finale will go like.

It starts off when Thorax is learning more about friendship, and then meets his changelings and tells him about how they can create their own love. The other changelings then tell Queen Chrysalis about how they can make their own love, causing Queen Chrysalis to become so powerful, that all three princesses, the mane six, starlight glimmer and her team of heroes combined would not stand a chance. All of Equestria is wiped out, and the show ends there. The end.

Chrysalis is definitely the hottest MLP character. Also one of the most POWERFUL creatures in Equestria. She captured the Mane Six and the princesses and replaced them all with changelings in the Season 6 finale. I hope she makes another appearance, since she is AWESOME. All hail Chrysalis. Changelings rule, ponies drool.

In my opinion she's the second best villain (Discord is my #1), but I've heard that she may be coming back at the end of season 6, so I'm excited about that!

18 Princess Cadance

The best Alicorn and character of the series. Cadance Is kind and beautiful and lovely and deserves to be first. Whoever says they don’t like her must be lying! =Princess Kepri

Uh.. Not exactly a favorite, at all. She's more of a Mary Sue than an actual character. Ok, so she's a pretty pink alicorn Princess who is marrying a royal guard and then has her place stolen by a villain and is locked in a cave and is a damsel as she's calling for help while she's saved and then there's a happily ever after. Wow.. So interesting... Don't hate on me just because I don't like her, she has done some epic things, but in general, she's the most boring character on the show...

SPOLIER ALERT! If you have not watched the season two finale do not go on.Best princess! I love Luna she is super cool. I love how she can just go to dream to dream. So Luna gets second.But Cadance saved the crystal heart! Yeah if it wasn't for her Spike would be dead and the crystal heart shattered! Cadance also gave birth to an alicorn! That girl has been thourgh a lot! Luna gone through a lot,too,but Cadance was locked in a prison on her wedding day then saved the day with her love for Shining Armor. She also saved Twilights life from that plant thingy.

Cadence is beautiful on the outside, but also the inside. I love her colors; her design is beautiful. So is her voice. She's always kind to others. I can't recall a time where she wasn't.

19 Sweetie Belle

I want to beat her to her stupid face. I hate her, she gets all the glory! Poor AppleBloom and Scootaloo! Everyone says that AppleBloom is "mean", and Scootaloo is a " tomboy". But! Sweetie is "perfect angel", eh? NO! She is stupid and always farts. Her voice is annoying. Once I watched MLP near my aunt. When Sweetie Belle started to sing, my aunt said " what's a terrible noice" and she was right! When Sweetie Belle started to sing a "lullaby", it was sounding like s rocken roll! Ugh. I really hate Sweetie Belle, she is stupid filly and my least favourite MLP character.

I've always felt that Sweetie Belle was was absurdly underdeveloped as a character. Other than the fact she's Rarity's younger sister, there's not really much there.

I love Sweetie Belle! I loved her since she was in G3 and I definitely think she is the most underrated out of the cutie mark crusaders.

Don't you understand, people? She is stupid, and it will be pretty generous to take off the cutie mark crusaders.

20 Diamond Tiara Diamond Tiara is a female school-age Earth pony and minor antagonist who first appears in Call of the Cutie. She and Silver Spoon are classmates of the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

Diamond Tiara has a good back story. She may have been a snobby little brat but the blame is on her parents. She wanted to do what they said, she followed her mother's commands. All she wanted was to be a normal pony. She wanted to be what she wanted to be, but her mother was standing in her way of freedom. She finally stood up to her mother. She gave the Cutie Mark Crusaders their cutie marks. She is reformed. Diamond Tiara was the one who gave the school their new playground. I love Diamond Tiara now.

How is Diamond Tiara in the bottom 3!? (200/202) That's just wrong!
She is a great character, even when she was mean, because I love bully characters that can ACTUALLY do their thing! And when her good side was shown in S5E18 "Crusaders of the Lost Mark", that felt good too! Her special talent is getting other ponies to do what she wants, and she was just using it in a bad way before Crusaders of the Lost Mark.

It's a nice idea about reforming Diamond Tiara, but this idea needs development. We got basically an entire episode revolving around her last season, but we haven't seen anything but a few background appearances since then. So her new character needs to be expanded on.

Out of ALL of the villains on the show, Diamond Tiara was the best and I think it's because we encounter the likes of her in real life through being bullied.

21 Big Macintosh

He is my favourite pony ever! He's hard working, cute, friendly, thoughtful, and pure... If not the sharpest tool in the box. All you Big Mac fans out there: read the comic with him in it! It's the best! If there are any Big Mac episodes I would sure love to know about them!

I especially adored Big Mac in Brotherhooves Social and Where the Apple Lies. He is a good big brother, and kind of reminds me of my own brother. Quiet and sometimes a pain in the neck, but in truth we all know that they care for us, even if they rarely open up.

Big Mac in my opinion is one of the best ponies- Hard working, loyal, and strong.

He is very loyal and strong and works his hardest!

22 Snails

I just think he can be funny sometimes!

The best My Little Pony character!

I wish he was higher up on the list.

Whoever put that here is stupid

23 Vinyl Scratch

Not seen often in the show with no speaking lines, but definitely one of the coolest. She looks awesome, and has tons of character potential. I wish she was more than a background character!

Coolest looking pony with the cuteness and is a unique looking pony with the different color pattern compare to the other ponies, she deserves to be more than a background pony.

Vinyl is best pony in by opinion! She's cool, she's cool, she's cool, and she's cool! I know its not from the show, but in a fan made animation, Rainbow Dash thinks that Vinyl is "So Awesome! "

Best background pony ever. Any music character with this much swag must be my favorite!

24 Dr. Hooves

UGH. Dr Hooves is a BACKGROUND PONY with no canon personality, no canon name, and is so boring that I can't stand seeing fan art of him. PLEASE vote him down, he isn't even a real pony..

Dr. Whooves is best pony and needs an episode all to himself, not like Slice of life but maybe one where he goes back in time and we find out even more about Equestrian history.

Why would just anybody vote for him. To be honest he is such a hurrying man pony with a sick butt

Best. Pony. Ever! And an amazing Crossover from my top T.V. show Doctor Who! But, the only thing, it should be Doctor Whooves, not Dr. Whooves. :P

25 Adagio Dazzle

She's sexy, always knows what she's doing, and is in the Rainboom's face so much that it doesn't even get old. Yeah, she's the MLP equivalent to Fawful from Mario.

She's cool but she is only in equestria girls; rainbow rocks.

I hate she singing

Welcome to the show!
