[edit] CharactersEdit

  • Twilight Sparkle: A unicorn pony with a light violet body and an indigo mane & tail with pink & purple streaks. Being Celestia's pupil, she considers knowledge more important than friendship. Despite realizing that Nightmare Moon's seal was to be undone, Twilight Sparkle ended up being sent to Ponyville to oversee the ceremony.
  • Applejack: An earth pony with an orange body and blonde mane and tail. She was featured in Rescue from Midnight Castle and has almost the same appearance she had in the original episode, but with fewer apples in her cutie mark. She comes from a large family of apple-name related members who oversee an apple orchard. She wears a cowboy hat.
  • Rainbow Dash: A pegasus pony with a sky blue body and a multicolored mane and tail, highly similar to 2003 and 2009 Rainbow Dash (earth pony), but with a very different nature similar to Firefly, an adventurous pegasus pony from "Rescue from Midnight Castle (1984)" (along with Apple Jack).
  • Pinkie Pie: An earth pony with a pink body and magenta mane and tail, coming off as a bit of an airhead.
  • Fluttershy: A pegasus pony with a yellow body and a pink mane and tail, very shy around others most of the time but loves animals. Similar appearance and nature to Posey, an earth pony in the 1980's show and named after an earth pony in Third Generation line.
  • Rarity: A unicorn pony with a white body and a royal purple mane and tail, interested in fashion. She has the appearnce of Glory, the unicorn who made a short appearance in Rescue from Midnight Castle, and is named after Rarity the Unicorn from The Runaway Rainbow.
