Best My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Characters


The Top Ten

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

You don't mess with Rainbow Dash or she'll kick your butt! HECK YEAH! And you know I even liked
Rainbow Dash before MLPFIM, so in my book she will always be the best pony.

Before her I never thought a pony could be a badass. She is the reason I started watching this. She gave everyone else their cutie marks. Why isn't she a wonder bolt yet? She can roar and kick a dragon in the face, go at the speed of sound with the sonic rainboom!

Did you see all the episodes in one rainbow dash could be assigned to the wonder bolts but rainbow dash gave up and wanted to be with her friends I am rainbow dash so I have loads of stuff in common I am LoYal too!

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 - ashlyn

2 Fluttershy Fluttershy Fluttershy is a female pegasus pony from the 2010 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.

I fell in love wih her when I saw her talk to the big red dragon and after that I was Hooked on the show, also, she is so funny with her "yays" and how cute she is it is just awesome, and if I had to pick one personality I could have it would be hers, cause I just wish I was quieter and I am just a bit 2 loud, and holy crap can she sing, I think when it does best singers I think she is number 2 (Rarity being 1). Also I love it when a character gets out of their shell, it just makes me so happy, so yay Fluttershy all the way

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!

3 Pinkie Pie 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.

To be honest I don't understand why Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash are above Pinkie. Don't get me wrong I love Dashie and Fluttershy but Pinkie should be above them. I know Dashie is badass and extremely awesome but sometimes she only cares about herself. And I know fluttershy is cute with her "yay" and shyness and how she relates to lots of people and how caring she is but that's really it. Pinkie pie has way more ups, like her desire to make everyone smile and always look at the bright side. I really love that when ever there are bad things happening she always has a smile on her face. She also has a strong spirit and good determination. She also always sees the good side to everything! She is the funniest pony in the whole entire series! Way funnier than Dashie and Fluttershy. She always wants to make her friends feel better that is the best thing about her. Even though she is a bit annoying sometimes she also has a lot of ups and she has a great caring personality not just for her ...more

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

Of course! Only the two most overrated ponies on this show (Rainbow and Fluttershy) have to be top! I don't like ether of them. They are so unoriginal I know loads of characters just like them. Pinkie is way better she is original I have never known a character like her she has a personality she brings the whole of ponyville together. Shes a peacemaker full of laughter and joy I can't seem to stop smiling whenever I see her on T.V.. What I don't understand is how come Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy are above her. Rainbow is horrible and boasts nearly all the time there is never any thing new added to her personality her fans are just like her whenever someone says something negative about her. Her fans get all defensive and aggressive. There's no need to be like that everyone has their owns opinions, this is my opinion. The same goes for fluttershy too what annoys me is the fact that Fluttershy never learns anything new, in one episode Fluttershy becomes all brave just like the other ...more

If you're talking about from seasons 1-3, then I would agree

4 Twilight Sparkle 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.

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.

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? - Sugarcubecorner

Twilight sparkle means everything to me she is more than just a favourite pony she is a fantastic unbreakable friend of mine behind a screen I seem to have gained a very strong bond and friendship between us that will never go I would love to meet her or even speak to her in real life sometimes I feel a bit lonely sometimes when I know that twilight is not real I just want to speak to her and tell her how much I love her she is sweet, adorable, really caring, loveable, funny, love it when she starts out or gets excited I love her random moments like the sweep remix. If twilight was real and I saw her I would give her a massive hug and I will introduce myself le5 her settle in my home then ask her out on a date then when she has to return to equestria I'll purchase a phone maybe Samsung so we can stay in contact with each other and maybe find a way to visit their world. Twilight is so special to me I would love to talk to her and meet her if there are any brilliant websites that allow ...more

Twilight should be number one she is the main character of the series

5 Rarity 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 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! ...more

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 its 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.

Rarity is the sweetest, cutest, most beautiful pony in all of Equestria!

6 Applejack 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. 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

The fact that she is not more popular bothers me: it says a lot about this generations young people. She is the down to earth, grounded, sensible, hard working, family oriented, honest one. Seems like kids these days just aren't into that which is bothersome. I adore Apple Jack- she's my kinda gal. She's hilarious and no one raises an eyebrow quite like her. I love the juxtaposition between her and rarity (the best episodes! ) as well as her relationship with her little sister (apple blossom is the cutest! ). AJ is where it's at. I also really like flutter shy and would love to see these two connect more. They could teach each other stuff: Semsitivity vs proper assertiveness training

Wow, I love this comment. I totally agree! Applejack is the best and a wonderful role model.

7 Derpy Hooves 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.

The plot of derpy in general, is one of the most original things I have ever seen, and she deserves to be more than a background pony.

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.

It's not her appearance that makes her so adorable, it's her bubbly personality, and I think someone who can except their difference and still live a normal life with true friends, you deserve praise, and she is probably one of the only characters in show and movie history that cover the relatable topic

My favorite

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

Coolest villain in childrens T.V.,... He'd BETTER be ahead of flippin Diamond Tiara!

Discord is one of the only characters in the show who is neither good or evil due to the fact he's chaos and is one of the only villains who is reformed on this show but he does not change his personality compared to trixie

Although he was a villain, he can be really nice once you get to meet him. He's an amazing creature that looks cooler than ponies. Although people say his face is a pony, it looks nothing like one.

One question WHY WAS HE NOT IN THE MOVIE!? They just shut him down after the episode when he invites Fluttershy over! Discord need a chance! Like if you agree!

9 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

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!


Glad he's above Sunset and Glimmer

10 Sunset Shimmer Sunset Shimmer

I love characters with development, and Sunset is no exception. I hope she will become part of the mane 6 one day

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. - ashlyn

Sunset shimmer is awesome she became there friends in the end plus she is pretty

She's a character with flaws, one who has complexity. While the other characters (minus Starlight) just seem to handle any possible issue that happens to them, this character had to go from villain to protag while also facing adversity and disdain from others. She's still blamed for her past transgressions in the 2nd film, and constantly reminded of it. This also leads to more complexity with her, where she's not perfect, has moments of anger and pride, while trying to better herself. This is why she's the best character.

The Contenders

11 Princess Celestia Princess Celestia

I feel like I'm the only one who likes her better than Luna. No, not because she has a "pretty" mane or is a god. Mainly because Luna is super overrated. "HEY GUYS! BECAUSE LUNA IS A DARK PRINCESS WHO IS YOUNGER WE SHOULD TOTALLY GLORIFY HER AND TREAT HER LIKE SHE'S AWESOME WHILE WE DISS THE OLD ONE! ". No, I have nothing against Luna, but I think Celestial is better. Don't say I like her just because she's the main Princess. It's because she's done so much. She' banished her sister for a reason and she's helped Ponyville several times. She's the reason Ponyville has day and she is very kind. What has Luna done? Well she's become a raging villain that the Mane 6 had to defeat and then she turned back to normal while her older sister comforted her, then the Internet worshipped her because she was cute. The end! Yeah... Celestia is a wonderful person, and not because she's a goddess, but because she's a hero

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

Honestly, I love all the characters equally and can't honestly pick one over the other as they are all an integral part of the well oiled machine that is the elements of harmony.

I do have to pick fault with the fact that so many people give Celestia such a hard time just because they have a hard on for Princess Luna!

Don't get me wrong, I love Luna as much as the rest of the characters but all this Celestia hatred is just so unnecessary and frankly...just plain wrong!

For starters, there's a reason she earned the nickname "Mum-lestia"! It's certainly not because she "a tyrannical dictator who serves only her own needs" as so many seem to believe!

So far, everyone seems to have overlooked a very important part about the how she "does business" with her students of harmony!

She is a truly incredible and remarkable teacher! What better way to teach her students to be brave and strong and independent and to fight like ...more

She is the best princess

12 Princess Luna / Nightmare Moon

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

Luna is best princess, that's all that needs to be said.

Luna is great. We don't know that much about her so we have a lot of freedom as the fandom to do what we want in fandom videos and stories. She is super realatable. I usually don't get listen to as much as others. And that makes me upset. But I learned from Luna that I shouldn't take my anger out on others. She is very nice and sweet princess the only thing is I don't understand how she looks the same in 1,000 years. She at least could've changed a little.

Moving on to Nightmare Moon. Come on Fandom. Everyone loves her. She is a very well and thought out character. I just don't like how much taller she got as nightmare moon. Like seriously, she is taller then Celestia. But that just shows how much power she has. I love lullaby for a princess duet. it honestly makes me cry. I just love in the Flash back with Twilight how Celestia is crying when she is banishing Luna. This may seem sad, but it shows how much she cares for Luna. I love how nightmare moon looks. I love the bat ...more

Well, I like Princess Luna because she is NOT always the "Goody-Two-Shoes". I mean that because of her "Nightmare Moon" personality, she is one of the most interesting ponies in this show. Unlike her " Such a beautiful pony" sister, she is daring, funny and sometimes NOT serious and sometimes, yes, she is serious. And the best thing I like about her is... HER ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE!
JUST LOOK AT THIS PONY,! She is beautiful like..!
Bro, understand her. She got overshadowed by her own sister, wanted to be loved and respected. Due to her "then" envious character, she payed the "hellish" price. After returning from her banishment from the moon, she got hold of the fact that every pony in her "so-called" home, perceives her only as a "trusty soul thief." After watching the show, I simply couldn't understand if they were innocent, lovely ponies or horrible, empty- hearted blamers who lock their blame on other ponies for their own folly!
Luna is so beautiful, but after I saw the ...more

14 Scootaloo Scootaloo

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

Simply AWESOME in the best way possible! Also, she has neat scooter skills.

Am I the only one waiting for Hit Girl's theme to start playing whenever she comes on screen?

One of the cutie mark crusaders and Apple Jack's sister.

Hey hey wait a second I could throw her on the grill and make some money off of her.:l

16 Trixie 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".

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).

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.

Trixie is adorable and and she probably wanted to show people her magic but got a little carried away and she is epic!

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.

17 Starlight Glimmer 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 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 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 think a lot of people hate Starlight, because she is too similar to how Twilight was before she became a princess. Twilight's story arc is somewhat completed, and the writers don't seem to know what to do with her anymore. For me, Starlight is a worthy addition to the main cast. I like her.

I like Starlight, but the truth is that I am very bored with the attitude taken by the redeemed villains of MLP (except Discord), that they spend their time talking about 'I was bad' 'ahh, I was terrible' and it seems that in their moment enjoyed being bad, because they spend all the episodes / movies talking about the same and they do not surpass it with ease (Starlight Glimmer, Moon, Twilight human, Sunset Shimmer). Do not get me wrong, I like some, but that attitude is silly and immature

I really like Starlight for many reasons. people think she's Twilight or Sunset's clone... but she's pretty different
She's shy in asking questions, confident with her magic but still unsure with some things.
She can be mischevious but that just deepens her character :3
she has had a lot of character development
Starlight isn't perfect and knows she still has room to improve
aand, she often overdoes it with trying to fix things, which I haven't seen with anyone else in the show :/
just my opinion

18 Queen Chrysalis 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.

I hope she appears in season 4

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!

She's just kind of an interesting villan... - TheRobertsFamily3

I wonder what happened to her and where did she go after Thorax became the leader? She just flew off. - ashlyn

19 Princess Cadance

I love Princess Cadence! She is the prettiest pony! She is my favorite, then: rainbow dash, princess luna, and fluttershy

She is very very pretty! And I love her voice, it sounds so nice but I think she is the prettiest pony of all! (And Rarity, you are the ugliest pony in front of Cadence! )

I only have one thing to say about Princess Cadence that will cover everything. SHE IS THE BEST PONY EVER

She is beautiful and kind. I think she is just a great charecter

20 Sweetie Belle Sweetie Belle

Yeah, she's sweet, but that doesn't mean she isn't tough! Not to mention a great singer.

She is sweet and kind and sometimes annoying when she sings and she is cute like a baby so adorable! - ashlyn

Sweetie belle is a lovely cutie mark crusader she is a very lovely singer too

Sweetie belle is very independent and she is also a great singer I can see in her eyes and heart that she is just like her sister so generous

Sweetie belle is great - Jaker747

21 Diamond Tiara Diamond Tiara


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.

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.

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.

23 Vinyl Scratch Vinyl Scratch

You don't see her often, but she is one of the coolest ponies.

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! "

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!

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..

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

Awesome pony! First stallion on the list.

Sorry, nerd speaking. Whooves is best background pony.

25 Big Macintosh

He is very loyal and strong and works his hardest!

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!

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

When he talks other yop then he is savage - Jaker747

27 Cheese Sandwich

Weird Al totally nailed cheese sandwich. Probably should be #5. But that is my opinion :3

CHEESE SANDWICH? UM YEAH! If you vote Pinkie Pie, how could you NOT vote Cheese Sandwich? He's literally the boy version of her! Plus, who else do you know that has a rubber chicken named boneless?

Cause I just love to see smile smile smile yes I do, it fills my heart with sunshine all the while yes it does, cause all I really need's a smile smile from these happy friends of mine! Pinkie Pie needs to sue this guy.

Weird Al + MPL = THE BEST THING OF ALL TIME - GoldenTemmie

28 Princess Twilight Sparkle Princess 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.

Why is it double? Princess Twilight Sparkle is Twilight sparkle.

She is the one who inspires me most. If it wasn't for her all ponies would be suffering. GO TWILIGHT!

Why is she sow low and also there are three on this list?

love her

30 Braeburn

Of course the main ones are gonna be top. Braeburn is great.

Not very much personality at all, we need more of him for me to form an opinion

Braeburn is by far the best pony in the apple family (aside from apple jack)

he is good

31 King Sombra

He might not be as fleshed out as other villains but he sure created the best atmosphere compared to the other season openings. Also Sauron from Lord of the Rings who inspired the development of Sombras character had not much screen time either and was still a good villain.

He was an amazing villain.

King Sombra needs a little looking into. He needs more love.

He has cool design but he died in a Y show - Jaker747

Maud is awesome! I hope she will be back

Maud is the most boring character in the show. Which is why she's awesome. - RiverClanRocks

33 Spitfire Spitfire

Spitfire is like the best pony of all time, she is so cool and she deserves at least 15

She's my favorite because of her design and badass look. Love her mane too.

She is So amazing, if I could be any pony 4 a day I would b her 4 sure

Everything about her is awesome. Her design (she has the best tail in the series), her personality, her voice, everything! That one moment in the Washouts involving her was just perfect. - PhoenixAura81

34 Sonata Dusk

I love her personality. She's like a villain but she's perky. Only her and pinkie liked Snips and Snails rap song. Plus before they hypnotize everybody during lunch. Sonata thought the great news was lunch. ( taco tuesday! )

Aria Blaze is better, I spelled it wrong the first time. - RedTheGremlin

Arya Blaze was better - RedTheGremlin

35 Lightning Dust

Lightning Dust should be higher than 45! I don't really consider her as a villain, since she regrets what she did when she got kicked out from the academy. She's one of my favourite characters and tought me to stand up for myself, to trust my abilities, and to do my best to be the first!

Lightning Dust has nothing on Dash! Nothing!

I love lightning dust I have a pic on my wall

36 Daring Do

She is shown very less on (Only 2 times) the show, but she is the best pony in the whole world! She is so daring, awesome and cool!

She is awesome and cool. And daring!

She is like so awesome because she's an adventure pony who writes books about her adventures. Common how can people vote Rainbow Dash to be number 1. Obviously Daring Do is 20% cooler then she is

Daring totally Awesome!

I really think that this pony is one of if not the best ponies because he is so unique and he is also very odd but adorable. - anonamoose5

Snips is beautiful. He is very attractive. He big, round, body is so yummy looking

Snips is beautiful and SEXY

These comments make me cringe - XYZeed

39 Snowdrop

This girl is nice in all but really she is pretty dumb I think she is a fake character they should of thrown her design in the garbage they shouldn't have created her. She won a contest by making a cheesy paper snowflake to me that is just like totally unheard of is say boo snowdrop a 2 inch snowman is better than her

Okay if you're gonna say why you don't like a character, use some actual reasons okay - ListerBlister

Wow... Uh.. I'm gonna get a lot of hate for saying this, but Snowdrop isn't he most flattering character, in fact, she was pretty lame.. Now before you throw tomatoes in my face, hear me out. She's a little blind filly with a squeaky cute voice and has no friends. Yeah, can we please like a character before we feel bad for it? Sure she's nice and has some development but come on! She's just another OC with a sad back story.. But if I had to be honest, she's pretty interesting

I have to agree though I think snowdrop should be AT LEAST in the top 10.. Just saying'

Not as good as Lyra but she is fine.

40 Moondancer

She's pretty cool. By the way, this is one of the official spellings of her name, the other being Moon Dancer; both have been used in official material.

Moondancer is awesome in so many ways

I just love her name so so much

She is like a lucky charm

41 Fleur de Lis

And by the way rainbow dash is my fave

Yes agreed! Best characters ever! She's more beautiful than Rarity! She should have mad appearances in more episodes

Cutest pony ever

He is cute and a loyal friend!

He is a turtle


Tank is so adoreable he is loayl like rainbowdash

43 Lyra Heartstrings Lyra Heartstrings

Lyra is awesome, especially because of all the awesome work that many of the fans have given her.

Definitely my favorite pony. I have a blast trying to find her in the crowds and clutter, and I love how she is often found near Bonbon/Sweetie Drops. I also love how she received a speaking role in "A Canterlot Wedding", and I squealed so loud at her and Bonbon's scene in "A Slice of Life." Go team Lyra!

Lyra has the best design in my opinion, I loved the speaking role in Slice of life and some of the fanmade work is amazing. Lyra Is Best Pony!

Lyra's voice and personality is so funny! Hope to see more of her and bon bon in the future

44 Princess Skystar

She is a cool seapony! I love her design and voice.

45 Gilda Gilda

No matter how there may be something likeable about her as a character people just be STUPED and overreact focus on the one thing that she done. Yelling at Fluttershy, that shouldn't matter anymore, this shouldn't matter anymore, can people just look to the bright side of things and just forget about what she done! At least get her off the bottom of the list.

Good thing she's at the bottom. She is so mean these days, yelled at Fluttershy and made her run away crying, scared Granny Smith (Applejack's grandma) and took an apple without paying, good thing Rainbow Dash broke up with her.

Gilda is awesome! People are too soft these days! Oh, she yelled at Fluttershy! I don't CARE! You gotta be tough sometimes! Gosh'

She Was Horrible In Season 1, But She Redeemed Herself In Season 5, And Now She's Okay - JPK

Did you hear pipsqueak's gonna get his cutie mark? If so, please reply back to me. Reply back anyway about my opinion on my favorite little colt

Who is pipsqueak


Pip is a great pony and really needs more screen time. Hasbro, if your'e still there, read my comment at, 88, Pipsqueak. Then, please make an episode that features Pip as the main character by the end of season 6. I would honestly appreciate that because he is my favorite character in the show and also a Princess Luna fan.
