Unnamed at the time, the fans nicknamed her "Derpy" after the common term for her expression, "derp". Starting with "Feeling Pinkie Keen", the show's crew began giving the pony crossed eyes intentionally to give her the "derp" expression, as a nod to the fans. Beginning in Season 2, the crew internally adopted the name "Derpy" and began specifically placing her in scenes, rather than having her remain an arbitrary background pony, as a "Where's Waldo"-type challenge for the fans. She received a spoken appearance in the episode "The Last Roundup", with Rainbow Dash referring to her by her fan-given name. In her current appearance, Derpy is a clumsy, cheerful, goofball; always willing to help, usually getting in the way, and generally terrifically accident prone. She causes some damage to property due to her clumsiness.

In Equestria Girls, Derpy makes some sporadic appearances, including at the end credits when she holds a muffin. In Rainbow Rocks, she plays the musical saw with her friends as a competitor in the high school Battle of the Bands. Additionally, her hairstyle in the latter film was changed to be more closer to her pony counterpart.

Unicorn poniesEdit

Unicorn ponies are ponies who have a single horn protruding from their forehead, which glows when their powers are used. While they each possess individualized/different magical capabilities, all unicorns share the ability to teleport in a process referred to as "winking". Their teleportation is limited to their line of sight, and can only be performed through open air; any physical obstruction will prevent them from moving through it. Despite being associated with their magic, a unicorn's horn is strong and sharp enough to have mundane uses. They have beautiful horns which helps them use magic.

Friendship Garden Ponies included Copper Glow, Silver Glow, Golden Glow, and Diamond Glow. They all had attachable wings to become winged unicorns.

Sunset Shimmer is an antagonist unicorn pony with a light amber body, cyan-green eyes and a red mane and tail with a yellow streak. She first appeared in Equestria Girls. She is also one of the ponies who is mainly in human form. She is one of Princess Celestia's old students. She was the bully of Canterlot High School, intimidating others and humiliating them to get her way. She stole Twilight's crown but lost it in the human world and tried to prevent Twilight from getting it back by humiliating her. After stealing it again after Twilight wins it back, she puts it on and transforms into a she-demon, and uses her new powers to mind control everyone in the school to be her own army to take over Equestria. Twilight's crown however sensed Twilight's friendship with her human friends and granted them magic to defeat Sunset and undo her dark magic. Sunset came to regret her misdeeds and was offered friendship by Twilight and her friends. She also appears in Rainbow Rocks as a reformed character, now on the side of Twilight Sparkle and her friends. She attempts to be helpful but nobody in the school trusts her after her past misdeeds. Sunset feels like an outsider for much of the film, even to her own friends, and is constantly reminded, accidentally, about her past evil actions and demon form. When her friends begin to argue and empower the Dazzlings during the finals, she finally confronts them over the small problems they have been having but not facing and tells them that unless they work out all their problems from the start, the magic of friendship can be turned into something else. She then helps Twilight and the others defeat the Dazzlings, gaining her own magic half-pony form and gaining the acceptance of the rest of the school.

Sweetie Belle is a filly unicorn pony with a light grey body, green eyes and a lavender mane and tail with a light pink streak, and a member of the Core 7 ponies. Usually the youngest of the group, she hails from Unicornia, before being teleported to Ponyville when she was once a foal. She has a big heart and likes to bake sweets for her friends. She also can demonstrate magic; however, this was only shown in "Once Upon a My Little Pony Time", where she used it to fix Rainbow Dash's scarf. In Friendship is Magic, she is a young unicorn pony and also Rarity's younger sister. She is also one of Apple Bloom's friends, and a member of the "Cutie Mark Crusaders". Sweetie Belle tends to be a slower thinker than Apple Bloom and Scootaloo, but is as excitable as they are and will readily follow their lead. Though she wants to be a designer like Rarity, her inexperience and clumsiness prove to be a hindrance when she tries to assist in the shop. She has a talent for singing and songwriting, turning one of Fluttershy's lullabies into a rousing gospel number, but prefers not to sing in public.

Trixie Lulamoon (who refers to herself in third person as The Great and Powerful Trixie) is a unicorn pony with a blue body, purple eyes and a two-tone light blue mane and tail, and a traveling magician. She visits Ponyville with her show, in which she greatly exaggerates her magical abilities through the use of fireworks and stage effects, and claims to have defeated an Ursa Major. Shortly thereafter, Trixie is unable to defeat an Ursa Minor, the infant offspring of the Ursa Major, when it attacks Ponyville after being startled out of its nap. After Twilight calms it down, Trixie admits her deception and flees from Ponyville. She returns in "Magic Duel" where it is revealed her career was ruined after what happened and had to work on a rock farm for a living. She blamed Twilight and returned to Ponyville using the Alicorn Amulet to cheat in a magic duel to defeat and banish Twilight. When Twilight's friends learned of the amulet and informed Twilight they devised a plan where Twilight challenged Trixie to a rematch with her own fake amulet and beat her, Trixie fell for the plan, removed the Alicorn Amulet to put on the fake Amulet, both removing its power enhancement and freeing herself from its corruption. Trixie later apologized to Twilight for what she did to her and her friends while under the influence of the amulet and became friends with Twilight before once again leaving Ponyville.

In the film Equestria Girls, Trixie is seen getting peanut butter crackers from the school's vending machine and makes several background cameos. She appears as the secondary antagonist and is the leader of her own band, the Illusions, in "Rainbow Rocks". She like most of the school becomes overly competitive while under the Dazzlings spell when the showcase is turned into a competition. Her band makes it to the semi-finals and becomes angered when she loses to the Rainbooms despite the ladder not finishing their song. She is convinced by the Dazzlings to stop the Rainbooms from performing by trapping them under the stage. With the Rainbooms apparently forfeiting Trixie's band plays in the finals instead. Her band is disqualified when the Rainbooms reappear and defeat the Dazzlings. Despite being freed from the spell, Trixie still swears revenge for her defeat, while interrupting Twilight and Flash's romantic moment, and exits the stage after throwing a smoke bomb, falling off the stands during her getaway.

Twilight is shown to have a special ability to teleport by wishing herself. She also likes to gaze to the stars. In the UK comics, she was a mysterious little pony who would occasionally appear to grant wishes after dark surrounded by a strange mist. Twilight is the inspiration for the main protagonist of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Twilight Sparkle.

Twinkleshine is fairly commonly featured in the series as a background pony, appearing in over half the episodes in season 1. Her first and most prominent appearance is in Friendship is Magic, part 1, where she, Lemon Hearts and Minuette meet Twilight Sparkle in Canterlot while carrying presents on their backs. She informs Twilight about Moondancer's get-together and asks her to come along. When Twilight declines on the grounds that she has "a lot of studying to catch up on", Twinkleshine expresses her exasperation behind Twilight's back and chides her for showing more interest in books than friends. She next appears in the surprise party that Pinkie Pie throws for Twilight later in the episode, and has since then remained a regular sight in Ponyville. In The Ticket Master, she is one of the ponies crowding around Twilight in front of the library, and again in the alley that Twilight eventually teleports away from. A handful of frames show her starting to run after Twilight, but she is not part of the throng of background ponies in the chase scene that follows. During her two-second participation in the race, her mane style changes to one resembling that of Cherry Berry and Berry Punch.

In The Cutie Mark Chronicles, she appears in Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash's flashbacks of flight camp, standing on a cloud in the sidelines before the race starts, even though she is not a pegasus. However, as proved in Sonic Rainboom, there is a spell that enables non-pegasus ponies to walk on clouds, making the circumstances around Twinkleshine's station in Cutie Mark Chronicles much more plausible. In A Canterlot Wedding Part 1 and Part 2, she is one of Queen Chrysalis's first bridesmaids, along with Minuette and Lyra Heartstrings.

Her design in the animation resembles the G1 pony Moondancer. However her playful pony release gave her a different look, making her resemble the G2 pony Princess Twinkle Star. Twinkleshine's description in the toys says she wants to be a Movie Star.

Alicorn poniesEdit

Alicorn ponies with a pair of wings and a horn are rare in the franchise. They usually have the abilities of all three other kinds, the Earth, Unicorn and Pegasus ponies. They have appeared in the toy line since Generation Four, and may have been the spiritual successors to the Princess Ponies of Generation One. Dazzleglow made an appearance in My Little Pony Tales, but her toy form, a unicorn released before Tales as a part of the Glow 'n Show Ponies lineup, is unrelated to that of Tales. All four of the G4 Alicorn princesses are portrayed as being taller and more slender than most ponies, with unique horns and wings.

Princess Celestia, the elder sister of Princess Luna, is one of the two rulers of Equestria and has the magical ability to control the sun. One thousand years before the start of the series, she used the Elements of Harmony to seal her sister, who had transformed herself into Nightmare Moon, into the moon. She is Twilight Sparkle's teacher and gave her the task to "make friends" in Ponyville upon learning of Nightmare Moon's return. However, after her sister is restored to her true form, she forgives her and allows Twilight Sparkle to remain in Ponyville with a new task of "studying the magic of friendship". She almost always refers to Twilight Sparkle as "her Faithful Student". She often does not directly state her goals, but rather gives advice to help her students find the answers they need. Though viewed with great reverence and awe due to her position, she often encourages her subjects to relax with jokes and gentle questions. She also shows great patience with any inappropriate behavior towards her. While always regal in both appearance and manner, Princess Celestia has been known to display a fun-loving side, appreciating the humor in a bottle of disappearing ink sent to her by Twilight. At times, she will even disregard the strict standards of high-class society when they become too much of a burden for her. However, it has been shown that while kindhearted and slow to anger, Celestia's patience does have its limits. When Spike makes her aware that Twilight has inadvertently unleashed mass chaos onto Ponyville in her obsessive attempts to find an overdue Friendship report to send to the Princess, Celestia personally intervenes to undo the damage caused by Twilight and sternly orders her student to a private meeting to discuss her actions; one of the few instances thus far where she was genuinely angry, albeit justifiably given the chaos Twilight caused. Fortunately, even in anger Celestia remains understanding, and at the insistence of Twilight's friends agrees not to punish Twilight, instead asking them all to send her friendship reports only when the lessons make themselves apparent to them. Princess Celestia possesses magic far beyond normal unicorn ponies. She is able to control the sun and the daytime sky, bringing them out each day and then moving them away to make room for the night. She also has the ability to dispel magic. Princess Celestia was originally supposed to be Queen Celestia, as is logical considering her position, but Hasbro requested the name be changed, alleging that Disney has caused princesses to be associated with good and queens associated with evil. Princess Celestia is the Diarch of Equestria, alongside her younger sister, Princess Luna; they are the highest authority, with no other king or queen who outranks them.

Princess Luna is the younger sister of Celestia. Originally she raised/lowered the moon each night, but she became jealous of Celestia because the ponies slept through the night and thus could not appreciate her work. This jealousy eventually transformed Luna into the shadowy Nightmare Moon. In her new form, her body is black in blue armor with her mane and tail appearing to be made entirely out of sparkly indigo, purple-rimmed moondust that she can use as limbs. Celestia was forced to seal her in the moon after she attempted to bring eternal night to the world. During the pilot episode, she breaks free after a thousand years and returns to Equestria on the longest day of the year, intent on carrying out her plan again. She uses her powers to hinder Twilight Sparkle and the other ponies in their search for the Elements of Harmony. In season 2, she undergoes a design change, with her mane changed from opaque to translucent, and she became slightly taller and more slender. Eventually, she is returned to her original form with the Elements and resumes her place at Celestia's side. Luna returns to Ponyville during Nightmare Night, Equestria's version of Halloween, with a taller and more slender build, a darker coat, and a translucent mane and tail. With Twilight's help, she tries to change her public image from that of the terrifying Nightmare Moon (on which the holiday is based) to a more favorable one as Princess. Her first attempts end disastrously, prompting her to decree Nightmare Night canceled, but Twilight persuades her to give Ponyville another chance. When Luna discovers that the residents enjoy being scared as part of the night's festivities, she uses the Nightmare Moon persona to help them have fun and thus gains their trust and friendship. Luna is shown to be extremely royal and formal towards her subjects, being quick to anger and easily offended. This off-putting facade of authority, however, is revealed to be a product of her thousand-year-old customs and ideas of propriety rather than intentional rudeness, and is shown to belie her fundamentally sensitive, caring, fun-loving nature. The results of Luna's thousand-year imprisonment in the moon and her subsequent unfamiliarity with more modern customs show themselves quite strongly in the fourth episode of season 2. She is able to control the moon and the night sky, bringing them out each night and then moving them away to make room for the dawn. As seen in "Luna Eclipsed", she can bring inanimate objects back to life using her magic and can also shape-shift at will, noticeably assuming the form of Nightmare Moon. As Nightmare Moon, she is able to take on the form of objects and other characters. Luna has also shown (in the third-season episode "Sleepless in Ponyville") the ability to enter ponies' dreams, as she does to help and counsel Scootaloo during one of her nightmares. Princess Luna is the Diarch of Equestria, alongside her older sister, Princess Celestia; they are the highest authority, with no other king or queen who outranks them.

Female Pale, light grayish cerise with lavender colored wing tips Dark violet, moderate rose and pale gold Purple Turquoise Teal heart-shaped gem within gold lace 2012 Friendship Is Magic Britt McKillip[5] 4
Princess Mi Amore Cadenza, or "Princess Cadance", is the winged unicorn pony niece of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, and also the wife of Shining Armor, Twilight's older brother. Cadance is first mentioned by Twilight Sparkle in A Canterlot Wedding – Part 1 when Twilight declaims the wedding invitation sent to her from Princess Celestia. Twilight is invited to "the wedding of Princess Mi Amore Cadenza and... [Twilight's] brother", Shining Armor. Twilight immediately resents the situation for not being told about it personally by her brother, and does not recognize the name "Princess Mi Amore Cadenza". When Twilight gets to Canterlot and confronts her brother about the wedding, he tells her that Princess Cadance is her old foalsitter and Twilight gleefully calls her "the greatest foalsitter in all the history of foalsitters" then goes on to praise her as "beautiful", "caring", and "kind" in her voice-over of a flashback of her childhood where she is foal-sat by Cadance. Cadance, as Twilight describes, is caring and kind in the flashback and according to that, she wears a ponytail decorated in a light blue bow with her tail to match as a young mare. She greets Twilight with a hug, bandages her and wipes her tears when she is hurt, plays with her on a swing-set, tells Twilight she feels lucky to be her foal-sitter, and does a little song-and-dance with her. Twilight's voice-over says Cadance spreads love wherever she goes, while a brief scene shows Cadance casting a spell that quells an argument between two ponies. Twilight mentions in the flashback that Cadance is a princess. Twilight discovered that Cadance was abducted by the Changelings as part of their Queen's scheme to conquer Equestria, and the childhood friends together foiled the plot. Afterward, Cadance participates enthusiastically in the rescheduled wedding's preparations while Shining Armor tells Twilight that it was the prospect of gaining her as a sister-in-law was convinced Cadance to accept his proposal. Cadance is sent north with her husband to the Crystal Empire after it returns after 1,000 years and assists the Mane Six in keeping it safe from its former ruler, King Sombra. She is now the princess of the Crystal Empire.

The Princess' name was inspired by that of the daughter of a Hasbro Studios executive, "Cadince". "Cadence" is also a musical term meaning modulation, inflection rhythm, or the closing sequence of a musical phrase.

Twilight Sparkle (called Twilight) is an alicorn pony with a light violet body, deep purple eyes and a midnight-blue mane and tail with a violet and magenta streak. She is the younger sister of Shining Armor and the sister-in-law of Princess Cadance, and is one of the Elements of Harmony. She is described to be talented in magic and very studious. Priding herself on being Princess Celestia's dearest pupil, she once considered knowledge to be much more important than friendship. When the danger of the Mare in the Moon loomed, Princess Celestia sent her to Ponyville to learn the importance of friendship, which proved invaluable in her confrontation with Nightmare Moon. She decides to stay in Ponyville and study friendship with her mentor's blessings. Twilight studies extensively and takes an organized, sometimes overly analytical approach to solving problems. She sometimes appears to have an insecure side when it comes to fitting in with others, and can be too neat and overly-organized for her own good.[1]

Unlike other unicorn ponies, Twilight can perform a wide variety of magic, including teleportation, force fields, and telekinesis. She represents the Element of Magic, which takes the form of a tiara. She has an older brother named Shining Armor, the captain of the Canterlot Royal Guard, who marries her former babysitter Princess Cadance. In "Owl's Well That Ends Well", she gained a pet horned owl named Owlowiscious.[6]

In "Magical Mystery Cure", Twilight accidentally activates an unfinished spell created by historic figure Star Swirl the Bearded, causing her friends' Cutie Marks to be swapped and altering their destiny. After correcting her mistake, Twilight is able to complete the spell, creating new magic in the process. Fulfilling her destiny predicted by Princess Celestia, Twilight is then transformed into a winged unicorn, referred to as an "alicorn" in the series, and ascends to become a Princess of Equestria alongside Celestia, Princess Luna and Princess Cadance.[7] Another part of magic she does is to freeze moving subjects like she does to Applejack, Fluttershy, Rarity and Rainbow Dash in the episode called Castlemane-ia. In "Twilight's Kingdom", she is now the Princess of Friendship with her responsibility to help spread friendship across Equestria with the help of her friends.
