Top 10 Strongest My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Characters

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

Discord literally has the power to send people into other dimensions as shown to Tree Hugger. He also turned Ponyville into literal chaos and is literally the god of chaos.

I love this guy for how much of a funny personality he has, unlike Sombra or Nightmare Moon. And he's so unique in the way he makes most of us like him more than the main (sorry, mane) characters, especially in "Keep Calm and Flutter On", where they (not including Fluttershy) didn't give him a fair chance! I mean, I get it, you hate him, but didn't Celestia want you to "not" hate him and give him a chance?

Anyway, I shouldn't be talking about how much I like this character so much. I heard he can lift the moon and the sun with ease and much more speed. And, oh yeah, he's the only character (not including those electric bees from that one episode) that is immune to Fluttershy's stare. Seems powerful, but all he needed was a friend, and what better choice than to choose the best character in the mane six, "Fluttershy". And it is adorable when they're together.

Well, I don't exactly know how to end this off, so um...


2 Tirek

He can literally absorb power and grow stronger. What else do you want?

3 Princess Celestia Friendship is Magic." As the ruler of Equestria, she is depicted as wise, benevolent, and possessing magical powers. Princess Celestia raises the sun and governs alongside her sister, Princess Luna. Her mentorship of Twilight Sparkle is a central element of the show's storyline, emphasizing leadership,... read more

She is the most powerful character in My Little Pony. That is, she controls the time since that represents her Cutie Mark, the passing of the day, and she is also capable of moving the Sun and the Moon alone for millennia. I mean, she has a Multiversal power.

In addition, she is considered the Goddess of the Franchise.

Many people say that Celestia only won against Nightmare Moon because of the Elements of Harmony, which is true. However, Celestia was not trying to beat her because she did not want to hurt her sister. She had no choice but to banish her to the moon because it was obvious that Luna was not going to lower the moon!

4 Princess Luna

Hey, there's this theory in my mind that since she can control the moon, hey, could that include the tides? Think about it, moon controls tides, Luna controls the moon. I know that's just hopeful thinking since obviously it's a big nope but if that was true...amazing.

Anyway, she controls the moon, she's immortal, and when she was Nightmare Moon, she was only defeated by the Elements. Granted, if they weren't in existence, Equestria would be covered in her "Dark and jeweled sky" like in the fanmade song The Moon Rises.

5 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.

HECK, she has some strong magic. She did a time spell and guess what, no one was able to defeat her. In a snap, the main six lost their cutie marks, no buts and no dilly-dallying. This pony means business. She defeated Queen Chrysalis, someone who ALSO means business. If it weren't for Grogar's bell, Chrysalis would have been defeated.

Why is Starlight Glimmer the most powerful? For one thing, she wound up banishing Discord's body from the school of friendship. I highly doubt anypony else could have even come close to that.

Many people go on and on about Twilight, but in "The Cutie Re-Mark" Twilight had to use persuasion to get Starlight to stop. She is the ONE villain that Twilight couldn't beat. I will admit, I would have loved to see Starlight alter the timeline to where she was the Element of Magic. She is the superior magic user after all.

I personally believe that some unicorns are born with talent while others have to learn it. Both Twilight and Starlight have a lot of talent and were born to be naturals, but Starlight was born a step above Twilight. I think that she would have easily made a better Element of Magic.

I do think that she is vastly more powerful than Celestia and Luna. All you'd have to do is teach her how to handle the celestial bodies, and she could rule Equestria without an amulet like Twilight does. When it comes to the other Alicorn princess (Cadence), she has nothing on Starlight. She is never really shown to do anything extraordinary at all.

6 Star Swirl

I voted for him because even though he's my least favorite pillar, he opened a portal and managed to keep it open long enough to send the sirens forward in time for a thousand years and into another dimension.

He demolished Discord's plans with ease. He knows more spells (and created more spells) than any pony. Discord is the only one who can beat him in a 1 v 1.

Star Swirl is one of the main Pillars! He and his friends also saved Equestria like the Mane 6.

7 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.

Really strong. She loves her friends so much. I bet she would fight for them and even risk dying. Her magic is very powerful. She is very close to being powerful enough to be a villain. It is possible for Princess Twilight to become Midnight Sparkle and fight strongly.

Rainbow Dash is fast
Applejack is strong
but Twilight IS pure power and has taken blows from Tirek.
the only ones I think can stand up to her are Celestia, Discord, Luna and maybe Pinkie Pie. but outside her universe, she might as well be in the top 35 most powerful magic users in fiction, alongside Strange, Fate and Merlin!

8 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

Applejack is stronger than almost anybody. It's just that the writers made Rainbow Dash win most of the Iron Pony competition. I mean, come on! She's obviously stronger! Like what? Rainbow cheated, and Applejack is honest and non-cheating. Rainbow Dash disgusts me.

Everyone just be quiet. Applejack is the strongest. She literally kicked a giant rock past Timbuktu if you haven't seen that episode. And seriously, Dash is stronger than Applejack? No. Applejack should be first on this list.

9 Big Macintosh

How is he last!? Did anyone watch the episode about the love potion?

10 Princess Cadence Princess Candace is a character from the animated series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic." She serves as the ruler of the Crystal Empire alongside her husband, Shining Armor. Known for her calm demeanor and wisdom, she is a guiding figure for other characters in the series. However, she faces her... read more

She spreads love, and she manages to raise a powerful baby and a wonderful husband. She also can rule the Crystal Empire and does everything for the kingdom to have harmony and love.

Well, if Flurry Heart is that strong, she had to get it from someone.

The Contenders
11 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 appears again later in the show, and teams up with other villains

She is the lost crystal princess. She accepted the fact that King Sombra was corrupt, and she lost half of her nation and her home. To accept that and move on in life is hard and takes real strength to accept and move on.

Have you ever stopped to appreciate that her powers can be practically infinite if she absorbs enough love?

12 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 was Celestia's pupil before Twilight, and she probably didn't have a sonic rainboom to help her become it. Sunset was only able to be defeated with six people working together, and she had already taken over a whole school.

She is so powerful. She turned into a villain and defeated the evil Twilight Sparkle. Plus, she has evil powers and powers that are good too. She also saves the day, and that is what makes her powerful and smart.

She is strong, beautiful, and fierce. Some people say that I remind them of her, but I don't see it. I could never be as amazing as she is.

13 Nightmare Moon Nightmare Moon is the corrupted form of Princess Luna, the younger sister of Princess Celestia. As Nightmare Moon, she first appeared as the main antagonist in the Season 1 premiere of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Twilight could have been defeated when the Elements of Harmony gave up on her. Nightmare Moon has unlimited powers and also managed to vanish her sister temporarily.

14 Rainbow Dash Rainbow Dash is a female Pegasus pony from the 2010 kids' show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She represents the element of loyalty and is one of the six main characters on the show... read more

Rainbow Dash should be number one for several reasons: 1. She makes sonic rainbooms, and that took a lot of strength and speed. 2. She is brave and loyal. 3. She is awesome. Who agrees with me?

Yeah, she is really strong and brave too. She is athletic and has a nice kick, so she should be the second strongest.

If you don't think that Rainbow Dash is the strongest, you don't know how to spell "the best pony ever"!

15 Flurry Heart

This pony is only a foal, and she already can tire out a princess and the captain of the royal guard. She doesn't understand that what she does is dangerous, so she could destroy half of Equestria and not notice.

Flurry Heart had enough power to break the Crystal Heart when she was a baby. Not even the other princesses could do that. They couldn't even find a way to fix it without Sunburst's help.

Flurry Heart managed to destroy the Crystal Heart with a scream?! I don't see anyone else doing that.

16 Shining Armour

Shining Armour is great! You can't blame him for being controlled by Queen Chrysalis! He went through a lot, but was still there in the end!

He's obviously really powerful in the magic department. He could hold the shield around Canterlot for quite a long period of time.

17 King Sombra King Sombra, or simply Sombra, is a major antagonist of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. He appears as the main antagonist in both the Season 3 premiere, "The Crystal Empire", and the Season 9 premiere, "The Beginning of the End". Sombra is a male, initially-umbrum unicorn, and the former tyrannical... read more

The dude is powerful and one of my favorite villains. The dude corrupted the whole empire alone with his own power.

Archimedes, this guy is pure chaos. He is filled with hatred. Gosh.

He can easily fight and defeat alicorns, has a wide variety of magical powers, and has tanked an attack from the Elements of Harmony.

18 Daybreaker

Celestia is more powerful than Luna, and with this extra power, she can most definitely beat anyone she wants other than Discord. It appears that she had a change of mind and was given extra power, so there is no force fighting from the inside.

Honestly, she beat Nightmare Moon. It may have been a dream, but still.

19 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 also so full of fashion. She knows what to do and does it at the right time. She is always prepared. Even though she is not as powerful as Twilight, she will do whatever she can to protect her friends.

Just because she is a lady does not mean she cannot handle herself.

20 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

So we're not going to talk about how Fluttershy literally managed to befriend the monsters in Tartarus? Straight away, case closed.

Fluttershy is very shy, but she knows when to stand up and be strong. After all, she is the stare master. Fluttershy has a great talent for talking to animals. It's pretty cool that she can understand them.

21 Iron Will
22 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.

Constantly travels at the speed of light, defies gravity on many occasions, has a stomach the size of a black hole, can get crushed to bits and regenerate as if it were nothing. Also breaks the fourth wall, sometimes harder than Deadpool does.

I love Pinkie Pie! She is an interesting pony. She is also very happy and full of laughter. Even though she is an Earth pony, she can still do very much!

She should be number 1 1/2 on the list!

23 Tempest Shadow

Even though she is without a horn, she is really powerful.

24 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".

Trixie is very smart. That's why Starlight chose her to be her counselor and best friend. Trixie is a powerful pony who can stand up and perform magic tricks, but she is still not as powerful as Twilight and the other princesses.

After spending a lot of time with Starlight, Trixie has learned a lot from her too.

25 Spitfire Spitfire is a character in "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," serving as the captain of the aerial acrobatics team, the Wonderbolts. She is a Pegasus pony known for her leadership qualities and flying prowess. Spitfire's character often explores the themes of teamwork, discipline, and the challenges... read more

She is amazing. She is just so hilarious, and I mean, she's the leader of the Wonderbolts. She's a very strong flyer, and she's just overall awesome.
