Most Underrated My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Characters

The Top Ten

1 Princess Celestia

They honestly should just show more of the Alicorn princesses in general

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

Celestia is one of my most favourite MLP characters of all time. She is amazing!

2 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

Bro only on this list for childhood nostalgia, but Applejack was my favorite - Manlypants

Mainly because this show is aimed at young kids, Applejack is underrated with her lack of glitz and glimmer and her honesty. She and Twilight are the most rational ponies, and are both very wise and mature. Her family dynamics work well and when you can see her relationship with them, it makes for the best episodes. She's not your classic tough farm girl, she's very complex, and her friendships with different characters are natural, adaptable, and healthy! She hasn't ever stirred up drama like most ponies either! Also, her mom is the cutest pony in my opinion.

3 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

Starlight is my favorite pony! Anyone who hates her don't know what their talking about.

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

SUper strong, even Princess Twilight need to convince her not to keep missing up the time then defeat her(cause Twilight can't :P).

4 Vinyl Scratch (DJ Pon-3)

I don't think DJ Pon-3 is underrated because she doesn't get enough praise, I think she's underrated because most fans prefer Muffin or Dr. Hooves. Dr. Hooves is literally one of the blandest/most selfish ponies in the show. In Slice of Life, he takes Muffin to his house, gets distracted with Muffin, and then when Muffin reminds him of why they were there, he just leaves to go GET HIS SUIT TAILORED! Muffin, however, is not innocent either. Muffin was made popular because... an eye glitch that a FEW people saw. Her character doesn't amount to anything other than she's clumsy, and she likes muffins. Her first appearance was so bad, Hasbro and DHX pulled her from the show entirely. I will admit, every since Slice of Life, her character has been getting better and better, to the point that I was almost starting to think "Hey, maybe she isn't so overrated after all." And then the holiday special came out. And she was back to the way she was in season 1. They ruined her, and now she's back ...more

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.

5 Princess Cadence

She is so beautiful and Shining Armour's wife. I love her and her wings. - TwilightKitsune

I love this character! In the comic with how she falls in love with Shining Armor is when she's at her best. - RoseRedFlower

She is better than Queen Chrysalis

Love her! But too much eye liner.

6 Maud Pie

Make sure too check out 10 top cutest my little pony characters

Ugly, pinkie is so much better.

Very mellow dramatic

Maud pie seems dark

7 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

She needs more attention too - Neonco31

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

Shes pretty overrated. - Gabriola

Yes she is popular but not popular enough

8 Spike

Always there to help others out - he's so selfless! And whenever he wants something, most of the time it gets put against him, and he's left out a lot. Is he even considered equal to the Mane 6? Why does he even hang with them anyway? Does anyone ever ask him what HE wants in life, what his destiny is? No, he's just constantly given jobs, and he doesn't speak out in fear of neglect or being sent away.

Twilight even used him as bait against a monster! That's just cruel!

Spike puts up with a lot of crap throughout the show as Twilight's assistant even if things do go out of hand for him he's always loyal and just try's hard to make is friends happy and is just a bit underappreciated in my opinion.

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.

9 Bon Bon (Agent Sweetie Drops)

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

10 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

The Contenders

11 Sky Stinger
12 Octavia

She only had 1 speaking role in an episode. - FireMarshallBillBurns

13 Lyra Heartstrings

There are many fanmade videos about her. Fans made her famous. Even she is a friend with an agent, she doesn't get what she deserves.

14 Zephyr Breeze
15 Zecora

Zecora is one of my favorite characters. I still have no idea why people don't like her. She is actually pretty cool being the only known zebra in the series and yet she's still the most underrated character in existence.

Really funny how characters who are UNDERRATED are below the list while characters who are well known (and overrated to me) are above the list. But yeah, Zecora deserves better - Libropio22

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

Zecora is the best. 'enough said

16 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

17 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

Hey hey I could throw her on the grill and make some money of her

18 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.

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

You'll think I'm crazy, but I actually like her! She's a good antagonist in the series! - BacklegoplanesProductions

19 Dr. Whooves

Are you sure that's how his name is spelled? Isn't it Dr Hooves?

OVER rated OVER rated

He’s for sure underrated and seen as a background character.

20 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!

21 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.

22 Babs Seed

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

23 Soarin
24 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.

25 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.

26 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

May be for you but she made the friendship more stronger than ever - Sugarcubecorner

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

27 Quibble Pants
28 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

Discord 4 ever

29 Minuette

Wrong list. Very popular

I love minuets a lot!

30 Fleetfoot

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

She is so cute I love Fleetfoot also rapidfire

31 Gilda
32 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.

33 Scootaloo

Jet be nice to sweetie belle.

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

34 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.

Its sad that queen chrysalis is underrated shes an amazing character and she deserves to have a plan that succedes

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 😭😭

35 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.

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!

36 Double Diamond

I have a crush on him.

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 Owlicious
41 Snails
42 Screwball


43 Mayor Mare
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 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. 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.

47 Shining Armor
48 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!

49 Princess Luna

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

She's OverHATED, ESPECIALLY on this site!

50 Flitter

Best pony
