The Top Ten

1 Rainbow Dash 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.

To be fair she is one of the main characters...

She is really overrated but I like her x3

She is really overrated but I love her.

I don't get why people like hr so much, her fans treat her like a godess and all she does is say "i'm cool! " and "20% cooler! "
I don't hate her at all.
It's what she said in "Fame and Misfortune", 'I can't even go to the bathroom without someone tryna tell me how cool I am! '

2 Princess Luna Princess Luna

Overrated but not as bad as derpy.

Stupid character.

Why do the Bronies hate on Celestia for not helping in certain situations but never criticise Luna for not helping with the changeling invasion?

Luna is overHATED by others and only overRATED by me...WHY?

3 Derpy

Literally famous for an animation error - ListerBlister

LOVES MUFFINS TOO MUCH UNDERRATED

How can this freak is OVERRATED! She is not special at all. She is so CLUMSY! SO CLUMSY until she can destroy things. Sometimes she can't fly properly!

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

Excellent villain, absolutely terrible supporting character - ListerBlister

Named after a social media site. Really?

I DO NOT LIKE DISCORD BUT OK!

5 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

Fluttershy used to be an underrated character, and because of that she became the most overrated character in the series to this day. That is why I think Fluttershy is the most overrated character, probably even more overrated than Rainbow Dash.

She is WAY too overrated! I don't even think she's cute!

I hate her

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. ...read more.

Applejack is nowhere NEAR overrated. She is the most underrated of the Mane 6. She definitely needs more love.

She's not even overrated at all, considering she's supposed to be one of the mane six she's actually the most underrated character in the show. The writers mess her up all the time and doesn't even care about her fans. The writers and bronies made me give up the show because they'r unfair and cruel. I sort of miss the show and wish is got better, but I can't get myself to watch it anymore as it makes me sad instead of happy. Bronies are jerks for not understanding and going against me on that! What if THEY were in my shoes? Would a show that's unfair against your favorite character be enjoyable? I don't think so!

Applejack is overHated, not overrated. Looks like people don't know the meaning of the latter. - Trivona

I love AJ!

7 Silver Spoon Silver Spoon
8 Lord Tirek Lord Tirek

I don't think that he is the most bad

9 Dr. Hooves

Doctor Hooves is a pony version of Doctor Who I believe. Because of that, he's kinda overrated.

What is doctor hooves?

10 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.

More overrated than Sunset will ever be. Hasbro just created another Twilight for EQG to have a Twilight stealing all the attention from Sunset.
Does not mean that I don't like her, but I think this could be a fact. - MaultierColt308

She has more fans than Rainbow Dash. every time someone talks about who the best or worst pony is, they always say Twilight is the best and how mostly anyone who isn't her is the worst! It's getting annoying! She's not that great, guys!

I HATE HER! She's too overrated and stupid. She does not deserve to be a princess and her wings are ugly. She's rude to Pinkie Pie and she underrates Spike! I want her to get killed by Lord Tirek! - RedTheGremlin

Twilight should be underrated which spoils the whole thing she is always the main character who doesn't really outstand and just give a push to Sunset to be the main character - ashlyn

The Contenders

11 Babs Seed
12 Hoity Toity
13 Princess Celestia Princess Celestia

She's the most overrated stupid character ever!

How? Hell Celestia is actually one of the most UNDERRATED characters. - MillieTrina_Prower

She should be on top 10! She maybe a nice characters but the fanbase treat her like devil. - Dandere Dev

The idea of a solar deity ruling over mortals was always interesting. However Celestia has spend most of the series with little relevance to the plot, minimal dialogue, and few interactions with other characters.

She gets a lot of praise by fans, but she has not been fleshed out as a character.

14 Sunset Shimmer Sunset Shimmer

Likeable, but FAR too much attention from both the fandom AND the writers.

She is ugliest one

I hate her! She is ugly, dumb and a jerk. She has an unlikeable personality with the worst style - Sugarcubecorner

15 Tempest Shadow Tempest Shadow

She was intimidating for a while, but then it got old because she had no real personality. When they finally did something with her, she turned out to be every sympathetic MLP villain but worse. Her tragic backstory is not that tragic and she's too evil to be sympathetic. Zuko never enslaved an entire country and that's part of why he's a good character. But tempest shadows introduction is her doing just that.
And as for her redemption arc: What redemption arc? She just suddenly becomes good because the storm king betrayed her. That doesn't even make sense. Her problem is that she thinks you shouldn't trust anyone. Being betrayed will just make them worse.
She's not emo, though. She never actually broods. Her tragic backstory isn't even that important as her motivations are just fine without it. Her horn is broken and she wants it fixed. Being ostracized by others is extremely unimportant for this.
Also, it would be so easy for the writers to simply imply that she received ...more

SHE IS DA BEST if anyone bugs her you will be sorry

Ignoring her stereotypical emo pony demeanor, we've gotten next to nothing about her motivations beyond being bitter towards other ponies for rejecting her due to her horn when she was a filly. Not to mention that that comes dangerously close to another certain evil unicorn with a painfully weak-sauce backstory who wasn't very well-received once that backstory came to light. Its never even brought up whether or not her horn gives her any trouble with magic, and if twilight's comment about it at the end is anything to go by; the perceived problem is just how it looks. Not even a handicap; ITS HOW IT LOOKS THAT'S APPARENTLY THE PROBLEM. And again, too much of her backstory is missing for me to rationally make the connection between her backstory and her being such a bitter douche-bag.

Some people find Tempest the best character in the MLP movie,but honestly I didn't find Nothing interesting on her.

16 Gloriosa Daisy

Really her villainous design is as about as cliched and unoriginal as a Final Fantasy villain (or even those of Chrysalis' Changelings in Season 6's disastrous finale), and she's really the only major villain I loathe in every conceivable way. Yeah, even Starlight's as awesome of villain in every quality as Tirek is compared to her. Plus, much like Sleeping Beauty's Maleficent, villains are nothing about their appearance, it's about their motivations for being evil. And she's nowhere near the love to hate kind and rather one you straight up HATE with all your heart. Because really, her motivations for being villainous (whether or not it's by accident) are COMPLETELY STUPID!

17 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.

All of her jokes have been done better on other shows. She's also the same character since episode 1. How is she not higher?

Pinkie Pie, downright, needs to be #1. I'm not saying she's a bad character, but everybody thinks that Pinkie Pie is the best character, which is why I don't like her as much. Not to mention she can be pretty annoying at times.

Discord is better

18 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.

Well she's better than Twilight. - RedTheGremlin

I hate this smelly girl - Sugarcubecorner

She's the most overrated character in MLP:FIM, she's ruined the show.

Sometimes I find it extremely weird (in a negative way) and upset that starlight has casted more powerful spells than twilight in the show, who is ironically both a princess and an alicorn and should be a lot more powerful compared to starlight. Hell, starlight even (kinda) killed discord with a seemingly simple spell when the main six had to use the elements of harmony to defeat but only imprisoning discord. Even though she is being taught magic by twilight, unicorn magic has its limits, while an alicorn should have a much larger range of magic spells compared to a normal unicorn, since alicorns are the literal ‘gods’ of the mlp universe. I don't know I just think it doesn’t make sense and seems unfair to twilight. Just my opinion though:/

19 Button Mash
20 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.

She sucks so much. Why the hell do people liek her?

21 Sonata Dusk (Equestria Girls) Sonata Dusk (Equestria Girls)

Oh my God. I have to say that Sonata is probably underrated. Well, I’m still wondering why haven’t she joined Rainbooms. She is nice girl, just look at her.
My favorite is Aria Blaze, but I think Sonata can be reformed.

22 Princess Blue Dream

Worst of worst. Enough said.

23 Diamond Tiara 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.

Her character in a nutshell would be that she is the Serena (from Pokemon) of Friendship is Magic. >8(

24 Scarlet Stripe
25 Snips

He is ugly, useless and is so stupid that I will die

26 DJ Pon 3

She is the most overatted character fans treating her like a boy in love with more overatted character octiva! in the show she is cool but the fan version sucks

27 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.

This even proves how overrated she is, Rarity has the most fanart on deviantart of all ponies, Fluttershy isn't first in that regard anymore.

She has the second most fanart on deviantart after Fluttershy, is always talked positively about wherever I see no hate of her anymore. That's being overrated and she's this far down? I agree she used to be underrated, but she's pretty overrated lately. She should be in the top 10, but not in the top 3 because with her being nice unlike her character type usually is she deserves a lot of love. But many of her fans can be a bit hypocritical against Applejack fans, back when Rarity was underrated her fans complained and how they bash on Applejack fans now makes them hypocrites. - Trivona

Rarity being so far down on the list only proves how overrated she is. She is the second with most art on the and most people have something positive to say about her.

Rarity is definitely overrated. She is just the worst members of mane 6.

More like "massively UNDERrated". - MaultierColt308
