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.

I love this guy on how much of a funny personal unlike sombra or night mare moon. And he's so unique and 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 hates him but didn't celestia want you to "not" hate him and give him a bloody chance!.. Anyway I shouldn't be talking about how like about character so. I heard and lift the moon AND the sun with ease and much more speed. And um OH YEAH he's the only character (not including those electric bees from that one episode) that is immune to fluttershys 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


He can do anything and everything if he simply wants to. He is even being compared to 'Bill Cipher' from gravity falls, that should tell you enough.

Discord is a reality warper with all kinds of strange magic. He would have avoided those 4 defeats if he wasn't overconfident, and if he tried to defend himself. Hell, he took a blast from King Sombra like it was nothing.

With no dought, he is a very remarkable character, he has his own characteristics. I stil don't understand how mlp friendship is magic is so detailed and has such distinct worlds and characters . In my opinion, discord, Isn't really " discord " he represents an element. That is one of the reasons for the harmony to exist . Mlp f.I.m. is really very well detailed, example: we know the character's names, characteristics, families, history and many others, I never saw such a detailed TV show as mlp f.I.m. Can't be discontinued.

Discord may not be the strongest in raw power, but his control and skill are so perfect that he's almost unbeatable. He simply doesn't like fighting and he has overconfidence sometimes, and he doesn't have interest in destruction, only in chaotich fun.

2 Tirek

So mighty and powerful

Stole discords magic

He can absorb magic

3 Princess Celestia

She is the most powerful character of 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!

princess celestia defeated daybreaker without the elements and daybreaker weakness is elements of harmony I mean is celestia a magic witch wizard or a demon who is a god I mean crazy. Imagine if celestia was grogar instead of discord.

She helped twilight to be powerful and raoses the sun and is too nice that can change anypony's mind.

4 Princess Luna

Luna is without doubt the most strongest character in My Little Pony! I mean seriously, first of all, she was strong enough to break free of Nightmare Moon, and sure the elements were used, but really it was Luna who broke herself free and in the episode "Do Princesses dream of magic sheep", she revealed that she has been keeping the Tantabus in her dreams to save all her people and she has had nightmares for a long time, because she cares so much about her people! She is so strong to be able to do that! She is SUCH a strong character! BEST princess of all time!

Princess Luna is indeed way more powerful the Twilight Sparkle. First of all, Luna is immortal. Second, she can raise the moon, and Twilight was only able to do that with Luna's powers. While Twilight was able to defeat Luna when she was Nightmare Moon, Twilight never would have been able to do so without the help of her friends. So while Twilight may be more powerful than Luna when she is with her friends, Luna is more powerful as an individual than Twilight

Princess Luna, ruler of the night, is definitely the most strongest MLP. Unlike celestia, Luna has gone through pain and sorrow. She knows what it feels like to be torn apart. Luna should be the head ruler of Equestria, not celestia. Luna is much closer with her subjects, entering their dreams every night. You also often see Luna in episodes trying to make friends( such as the Nightmare night episode) even though she had a brutal past, she's still brave enough to go out into her kingdom and try to reason with her subjects. Unlike celestia who stays in her castle all day till she gets bored than "poof" she makes Twilight an alicorn...ugh just take celestia off the show...

Just wanted to see Luna get her place above / near Celestia. After all she canonically defeated Celestia who needed the Elements to win; Can shape shift; Phase Shift; and has more combat abilities than Celestia or Twilight.

Not to mention she's a dream walker (and all the powers that are in that); as well as while Celestia only controls the Sun; Luna can control and shape all the stars in the universe.

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.

She is the ONE antagonist that Twilight Sparkle could not defeat. Twilight even admits this in "The Cutie Re-Mark, Part 2. Imagine that, Celestia's "chosen one" being defeated by a unicorn with no formal training in magic. Had she had formal training in magic, she could rule Equestria on her own easily, Twilight would have nothing on her."

Starlight can also steal cutie marks which is something that no other character has done. Granted I'm sure Discord could do that if he wanted but his personality focuses on chaos, not control.

Starlight also swapped the cutie marks of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna. Doing that to two immortal Goddesses is no small feat...and let's not forget her easily taking Twilight's cutie mark. Now had she had shatterproof jars, Twilight would have forever been mediocre.

Also, she banished Discord's body from the school of friendship. Her magic is driven by emotion and when she is angry and protecting those she cares about, you're toast ...more

If she wanted to she could have destroyed all of them (maybe not discord ) but the way she uses her magic is incredible . In season 9 she proves herself against chrysalis's if she never walked away from the snow and payed attention she could have been able take on chrysalis

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 Celesta and Luna. All you'd have to do is teach her how to handle the celestial bodies and she could rule Equestria without an ...more

Starlight Glimmer is one of the strongest characters in the series. A full power Starlight easily overwhelmed Twilight and removed her cutie mark along with the other 5 with no difficulty whatsoever.

She later fought Twilight to a stand still with her arguably winning plus the fact that she had to maintain her time loop spell, which by the way is one of the most impressive magical feats in the series.

Lastly, she is the only character to effect Discord without any borrowed power e.g the elements. Discord is strong enough to overwhelm two alicorns; Celestia and Luna. Seeing how easily Starlight overpowered Twilight, not to mention switching Celestia and Lunas cutie marks leads me to believe a full powered and fully trying Starlight could take on 2 or more alicorns at once.

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 thousand years and into another dimension.

He demolished discord's plants 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 save equestia like the mane 6

He is the pony Gandalf

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 then and even risk dying. Her magic is very powerful. She is very close for being powerful enough to be a villain. It is possible for the Princess Twilight to become Midnight Sparkle and fight her strongly.

Alicorn magic is said in the show to be the strongest. Twilight literally represents the element of magic, that should say it all. When she was only a foal, for her magic school test, she hatched a dragons egg, turned her parents into plant, levitated all four of the examiners AND made Spike (the newly hatched baby dragon) huge enough to burst through the ceiling. She literally performed an age spell! Which is a spell that can only be done by the highest level unicorn, she did that when she was only a foal! Twilight was able to take on the power of three alicorn princesses combined, not an easy feat. She easily defended an attack from the pony of shadows towards Starswirl who then admitted that Twilight is as powerful as Starswirl himself, who is considered the most powerful unicorn ever. The only reason she lost against Sunset Shimmer when she became evil was because of Spike, who basically stopped her. Otherwise, Sunset was clearly losing.

She does not use the full potential ...more

Rainbow Dash is fast
Apple Jack 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!

Do not mess with this alicorn. Now that she has her wings she's more powerful then ever. She's not really that strong even though she's a Princess Alicorn.

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. more.

Applejack is stronger than almost anybody. Its just that stupid ass writers that made rainbow dash win most of the iron pony competition, I mean, come on! Shes 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.

Applejack gives great advice and also is confidence! Even though she is an earth pony she still has stregth!

Cozy Glow is stronger. She has all the magic of equestria in the Season 8 Finale.

9 Big Macintosh

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

10 Princess Cadence

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.

Honestly not sure why I thought she was strong just thought because she was a princess she is

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?

I have never got round to seeing her, but she already has the best design in my books!

Pretend to be the main 6

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 6 people working together and she had already taken over a whole school.

She is like sooo 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

She is pretty knowledgable about magic and has shown to preform great spells as a unicorn.

13 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. Her name is composed of "Rainbow" (the color of her mane and also likely referring to the sonic rainboom she preformed as well as her previous occupation as a weather pony) and "Dash" (Referring to her love for flying and her need for speed).

Rainbow dash should be number one reasons:1she makes sonic rainboms and that took a lot of strength and speed. 2 she is brave and loyal.3 she is AWESOME who agreed with me?

Yea 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"!

Rainbow Dash is very fast and also has her friends back! Rainbow Dash also is very chill and clam!

14 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 manage to vanish her sister temporarily.

She was just standing up for herself.

Can bring eternal night

She defeat celestia

15 Flurry Heart

This pony is only a foul and she all ready 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 cristyal heart when she was a baby not even the other princesses could do that they couldn't even find a way to fix it with out sunbursts help.

She was so powerful

16 Shining Armour

He's obviously really powerful in the magic department he could hold the sheild around canterlot for quite along period of time.

This guys sucks. How did he even become captain of the guard in the first place. I mean, really? A threat was made against Canterlot, clearly while the wedding was being prepared, and all he did was put a shield up. Boo! A real captain would've had the wedding postponed until the threat was dealt with. Selfish jerk!

To all the haters, Shining Armor was being controlled by Queen Chrysalis and it's not like he had powerful magic to stop her, I mean she used his own love (Cadence) against him! So of course he would be able to judge poorly.Besides Queen Chrysalis is so powerful that she even beat the hell out of Celestia! Who by the way is at the top of the list (Which u should be complaining about).I mean I get that he isn't suppose to be on the top 5.But at least he should be on the top 10! Also stop complaining! There''s already enough hate in this world! LOL #Peace,Love and More Love (and all the Mushy stuff in between)

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!

17 King Sombra

The dude 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 in no forse finghing from the inside.

Honestly, she beat Nightmare Moon. 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 do 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.

She NEEDS to be the center of attention and causes too much drama! BRAT

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

Meh, she just never seems like actually strong in anyway, sure, she can kick and handle herself, but no great powers :/

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

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 of talking to animals, its pretty cool that she can understand them.

Aniti social, over sensitive, pushover, annoying voice, how could she be more hated?

Is always the strongest

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.

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!

Constantly travels at the speed of light, defies gravity on many ocasions, has the 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.

Out of the main six, she is my favorite, she is a changling who became her own pony. She changed, and also made a mistake of friending BRATS

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

23 Tempest Shadow

Even through 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 to be her canceler, and a best friend. Trixie is a powerful pony to stand up and do magic tricks, but still she is not as powerful as Twilight and the other princess.

She is powerful magic

Kinda sorta strong

Yes this is the one

25 Spitfire

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

What how is she here
