Most Underrated My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Characters


The Top Ten

1 Princess Celestia Princess Celestia

Princess Celestia is my all time favorite character from the My Little Pony series. - PikaGT27Celestia

People hate her because she's "perfect" even though she's not. Proof: slice of life when she argues with Luna. Luna is such a overrated charter anyway, because she's "dark" and not perfect. Celestia is so nice and is like a God

I loved the recent scene she was in for season 7. When she's being overdramatic and worrying about Twilight's future! That was so heartwarming and sweet! - RoseRedFlower

I like, love princess celestia. she is awesome! how do u spell awesome? c-e-l-e-s-t-i-a!

2 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.

She has so much unused potential. Instead of using her potential like they do with the other five they add more potential for Applejack, but never uses it. It's so upsetting they're doing this. Please writers, give her more quality development and don't sideline her. Heck, she's even sidelined in her own episodes or made to look stupid or bad just to make the others look good. Writers, don't continue your unfair writing. If you do it proves you support suicide. A girl DIED because of your unfair treatment and writing for the mane six for crying out loud. RIP Emily, I wish I met you in person.

I don't know why people hate Applejack so much. People always say they want her to die and lots of mean things about her. She is the one who keeps the farm together. - TwilightKitsune

She is more underrated than everyone else

3 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.

I'll be honest, her haters have some valid points. When I consider the things she did as a villain, it's hard to accept that she didn't get any consequences of any kind. She tried to destroy the timeline for a petty revenge plot. Moreover, what the viewer didn't get to see was how Starlight ruled her village from day to day. After imagining the tactics she must have used to control all the other ponies in 'our town,' from manipulation to possible violence, it leaves me a bit disgusted. And yet, somehow, in a single song, she received instant forgiveness.

And then, in No Second Prances, she had the audacity to suggest that she didn't get a second chance, even though she should have ended up in Tartarus for all of her crimes, and even accuses Twilight, who she tried to eliminate, of not trusting her. Even worse, the scenes with Celestia and that stupid dinner were added in as a pathetic way to make Starlight look more sympathetic my making Twilight look less sympathetic in ...more

I have loved Starlight ever since she was first introduced and even when she was reformed. In season 7, she is better than ever. Her haters say she's a Twilight rip off. Actually, she is the complete opposite of her. She's more blunt and to the point than Twilight (or any other mane 6 for that matter). I also love the fact that she is able to get along with ponies who otherwise struggle socially (for example, Maud).

Look, I know she enslaved an entire village and that she almost destroyed Equestria at one point in her life, but look at her now! She truly has changed for the better. She saved Equestria from Chrysalis with Trixie, Thorax, and Discord. And, most recently, she got Celestia and Luna to walk a day in each other's horseshoes to get them to appreciate each other better! That is a big BIG step up from what she used to be when she was a villain.

Starlight really has grown a lot this season compared to Season 6. It's a shame that there are still some people who ...more - TexasBro93

I am one of the few who was willing to give Starlight a chance after LOTS of people wrote her off or refused to acknowledge her. I really felt like the season finale showed true growth in Starlight's character. If the writers can just use her more and have her have more meaningful conversations with the remane 5, then WAY more people will warm up to her.

Actually she OVERrated... Seeing how popular she is makes no sense. She's like Rey from Star Wars, overpowered with no explanation and with lots of Mary Sue traits. How the heck was she so powerful at the end of the season she was introduced in when she took YEARS to learn a spell that's much more simple than time travel which she learned in short time? It's so ridiculous, either her fans are stupid and doesn't use their brains OR they just like her for the attention she gets. Despite what she did she gets away with thing very lightly. Evil-Starlight and Hero-Starlight also feels like two completely different character. She is badly developed and written especially with the remane five. I hate how the writers push her down our throats by making her look better than the mane six, it's disgusting and despicable. So she isn't underrated at all, people saying she is either in denial or doesn't know what underrated actually IS.

You are the worst type of person. I see in her a lot more than you ever will. - TexasBro93

She doesn't ever talk. I wish she had at least one speaking part in the series. Maybe there isn't a voice actor for her?... - SimplyTwilight13

Why is she on here?

Actually, Vinyl get's a lot of recognition from the My Little Pony fan base.

We don't really know that much about her, so I get that she's #4.

Love her! But too much eye liner.

Ugly, pinkie is so much better.

Very mellow dramatic

Maud pie. You make me laugh, and your poems are inspiring. you have written thousands.All. About. Rocks. I despise of all the hate you get, it's because your different.

She needs more attention too - Neonco31

I think she has a pretty good amount of fans. Not too underrated. - SimplyTwilight13

...She's pretty popular in the fandom. - starryrcad

8 Bon Bon (Agent Sweetie Drops)

They should do a flashback episode where she is Agent Sweetie Drops!

9 Spike

Twilight: Hey Spike can you get that book for me?
Spike: Sure Twilight
(Falls down with a pile of books)

Plus he's always the one carrying stuff for the Mane 6. I feel bad for him.

Nobody focuses on him, he's technically a butler for Twilight, not even a friend.

He is so fat I love him I once pretended to be him with toys in my shirt-the fatest thing

The loyal assistant of twilight diong his best to serve but underatted

10 Apple Bloom Apple Bloom

In my opinion she is really underrated... deserves more screen time and Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo receive more attention than her. - TwilightKitsune

Apple Bloom is my favourite character. I mean, she is so cute, kind, helpful, friendly and pretty. Also, I like the ship Apple Bloom x Black Gryphon!

She is so cute

Her voice is annoying.

12 Sky Stinger
13 Zephyr Breeze
14 Trixie Lulamoon Trixie Lulamoon 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 love Trixie. She's my favorite antagonist, and she has a great character. One of the funniest characters in the show.

I like how she made Snips and Snails carry her across Ponyville with a whip. That was hilarious. - TwilightKitsune

Trixie definitely deserves more episodes."

The great and powerful rock

16 Flash Sentry

There's a reason he's underrated... he's just a jerk

I think that the pony version of Flash is really underrated. He has great potential. we need to see him more. I love Flash x Twilight.

He is not a jerk and Twilight is not an idiot😤

I hate you. pig. why did you broke up with sunset shimmer. and has gone to love the idiot twilight. sunse shimmer is more beautiful than her you IDIOT

17 Zecora

Even Diamond Tiara was ranked over Zecora! Zecora is so cool she teaches Twilight so much. - TwilightKitsune

Zecora is the best. 'enough said

Zecora is my favourite

Zecora has saved the mane 6 a lot. She should be recoginzed more in the series. - SimplyTwilight13

18 Tree Hugger

She was hilarious. Every line that she uttered was comedy gold. If anything, the only thing I would change about her is her name.

Haha Tree huger what a funny name

I hate her!

OVER rated OVER rated

20 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.

A hard-working artist, whose life literally depends on her creativity. A savvy businesswoman who started with nothing and now owns several stores. A magical unicorn, with weaker magic than others, but wielded with skill. A courageous fighter, trying to save the world. A part-time parent to a younger sibling, thanks to parents who conveniently disappear for much of the series. And she is the one treated as some kind of a "drama queen"?

Actually, Rarity is overrated. Her fans are just spoiled.

Rarity is not the one to be excluded in merch when just one of the mane six ends up to, that's always Applejack.

Rarity is not the one who gets offensive memes (which was even the last straw for a 14 year old Applejack fan to kill herself), Applejack is.

Rarity is not the one of the mane six who's the favourite of least amount of fans, Applejack is.

Rarity is not the one of the mane six to get the least amount of SOLO episodes, again APPLEJACK is.

Why are Rarity fans so spoiled? Her being more voted on than Applejack her even proves it. I'm starting to despise Rarity fans, if only Applejack got as much good treatment as her I'd be happy.

I love Rarity she is the coolest Drama Queen I've ever known. Also when she said 'I DESPISE camping! ' I was laughing so much. - TwilightKitsune

Rarity doesn't even get any appreciation. I love her and she is awesome! She has a great sense of humour and fashion and she would fo anything for her friends and is generous. She is even an independant and awesome mature pony! Twilight shouldn't even be on this list. She is overrated and is a goody two shoes that doesn't even deserve what she has.

She turned out to be good but I still don't thrust her

22 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.

Pinkie Pie is very underrated. She gets a lot of hate. Applejack is very underrated as well.

So underrated, she barely even gets ACKNOWLEDGED as underrated.

Who can't notice those cute eyes!? - Sugarcubecorner

People think that she's overrated, but no! She never got a SINGLE episode where she spoke the most in S6 and is one of TWO characters not to get a proper special on EGQ! Ok... on second thought she's not the MOST underrated character, that would go to Mayor Mare, but she's the underrated character I like the most.

23 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.

She is so nice, pretty and awesome! I don't mind the haters because I am deaf to stupidity! Anyways twilight is best! - Sugarcubecorner

She's so overrated.
Besides, she is the type of protagonist everybody loves. - starryrcad

She such an ass she made friendship ruin

Twilight is amazing she should be 1 she is like the main main character

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

Discord is awesome, Chaos is magic, rocks are afraid of cotton candy, Derpy is derpy, and that is all I have to say. Anyway, Discord is a HERO in my book, not to mention HILARIOUS!

Discord is that awesome and he is so chaotic and really cute

Okay discord isn't that underrated but the best character in this show

I really like him,but he isn't underrated

25 Sweetie Belle Sweetie Belle

Sweetie Belle is going to be a great singer one day better than Sapphire Shores. Rarity can then be her manager. Just hear her sing '100 buckets of oats on a wall'. - TwilightKitsune

Sweetie Belle is so annoying. And your comments "that she will become perfect singer" are a lie. Have you seen how she sings a "lullaby"? That's not a lullaby but a shout of cow, even cow's voice is better than hers. Sweetie Belle just give commands, she's whiny and stupid. She's my least favourite from CMC, I wish she will die one day.

Sweetie Belle is not an overrated peice of crap Scootaloo is but not Sweetie Belle.

26 Diamond Tiara Diamond Tiara

She will be redeemed soon in one episode, one day. She's not really that bad. Its actually Spoiled rich to blame. - TwilightKitsune

Very good character! Doesn't deserve her hate! - GumballWattersonVGCP

I hate her and her stupid family

She has a character in development - Sugarcubecorner

28 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.

She gets too much undeserved hate. She's a good pony, just because she makes mistakes doesn't make her a bad person.

I think she gets deserved hate. All she cares about is herself, getting what she wants and winning. She never learns her lesson. - TwilightKitsune

As much as she is overrated, her haters make her even more overrated or probably even more overhated - Neonco31

She's overrated but over-hated by her haters. - Discord1

Don't be a hater.

29 Fleetfoot Fleetfoot

She is so cute I love Fleetfoot also rapidfire

I like Fleetfoot and Soarin but Spitfire get all the attention. She is my favourite wonderbolt... don't know why though... - TwilightKitsune

30 Minuette

Wrong list. Very popular

I love minuets a lot!

31 Pipsqueak

Pipsqueak is the reason I love mlp. Not only is he the cutest character in the series, but he never takes all the credit for himself. Remember after he won school president over Diamond Tiara, he claimed loudly and sincerely;"I couldn't have won without the hard work of my campaign managers, the cutie mark crusaders! " Pip has a very honorable and modest personality, that's also mentioned in the song "The Vote". "We'll let honor win out against the tyranny". It's also clear he's retained these desirable qualities in all his appearances;e.g; Luna Eclipse. Of all the underrated mlp characters, Pip is, without question, the most likeable

He's sooo damn cute!

I love Pip

Pipsqueak is the reason why I love mlp! Not only is he the cutest character in the show, but he never takes all the credit for himself. Remember after he won school president over Diamond Tiara, he said loudly and sincerely;"I couldn't have won without the hard work of my campaign managers;the cutie mark crusaders! ". Pip has a very honorable and humble personality, as said in the song "The Vote". "We'll let honor win out against the tyranny,". This is proven in Luna Eclipse, Twilight Time and Crusaders of the Lost Mark. Of all the underrated mlp characters, my favourite colt, Pip is, without question the best. :):):):):):):) P.S: Please, reply to me.

32 Scootaloo Scootaloo

Jet be nice to sweetie belle.

Sweetie Belle is an overrated piece of crap. Scootaloo is awesome.

33 Sunset Shimmer Sunset Shimmer

It's hard to believe Starlight Glimmer is above her. - TwilightKitsune

She is stupid! - Sugarcubecorner

How come she is stupid? Your just saying that so she could be underrated. - ashlyn

That's because Starlight has the luxury of staying in the actual show and not being outsourced to Equestria Girls. Fans cheered when Sunset made a return to Equestria in "Mirror Magic", which only proves that she would be much more popular if she had stayed a pony in MLP. by the way I would love that, too!

34 Gilda Gilda
35 Princess Luna Princess Luna

Isn't she the most overrated princess? Does she deserve to be in this list?

She's OverHATED, ESPECIALLY on this site!

36 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.

Poor Queen Chrysalis. She is underrated, poor thing.

Queen Chrysalis is so beautiful and in the Fluffle Puff shorts, she has a heart of the purest gold. Her voice is that of an elegant angel, she looks the prettiest, and she gets too much hate. She gets offensive memes. I want to love her forever. My poor underrated baby...

They didn't reform her and now everybody hates her she's probably out in the cold starving or something I just love Chrysalis and I don't want bad things on her 😭😭

37 Tom

Tom is love. Tom is life. Tom is the strongest rock for Rarity. - TwilightKitsune

38 Cheerilee
39 Caramel

I know it’s about MLP and I AM a pegasister, but there’s one thing you should know... there’s also a character called Caramel that I absolutely HATE. She’s a Siamese and she’s so creepy, I’m more creeped out of her than hating.

40 Derpy

How is she underrated? - Discord1

Don't get me wrong I like Derpy alout but she's pretty overrated but not as much as Ebola Dash

Derpy is SOOO cool! She is beutiful, too! Even her eyes!

41 Owlicious
42 Snails
43 Double Diamond Double Diamond

I have a crush on him.

44 Twilight Velvet

Twilight Sparkle exists because of her. And Twilight's father is called Night Light. - TwilightKitsune

She had a slightly bigger role in "Once upon a Zeppelin". Coolest mom ever!

45 Sapphire Shores

Sapphire Shores is the pony of pop in MLP:FiM. She is the best singer. - TwilightKitsune

46 Shining Armor Shining Armor
47 Flitter

Best pony

48 Granny Smith

Really underrated.
