MLP Cast /Characters

The cast of characters in ‘My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’ is extensive, but the main cast consists of six friends and one sidekick that comprise the core group.  Although they have dozens of supporting characters to back them up, several villains constantly working on evil machinations, and an abundance of royalty, celebrities, and non-pony characters hanging around to flesh out the story lines, the primary heroes in the Friendship is Magic universe are these best friends.  And together they represent the Elements of Harmony.  Here’s what you need to know about them.

Twilight Sparkle is voiced by Tara Strong.  The character features a purple hide, a black mane with pink and purple stripes, and her cutie mark is a pink star surrounded by smaller, white stars.  She is an alicorn (with a unicorn horn and Pegasus wings) and she acts as the natural leader of the group of friends in Ponyville.  Notable character traits include a love of reading, a penchant for logic, and excellent organizational skills.  Her element is magic.

Applejack is voiced by Ashleigh Ball.  Her hide is orange, her hair is blonde, and her cutie mark is three red apples.  She also sports a cowboy hat, as well as a southern twang, a la Dolly Parton.  Applejack is a no-nonsense, hardworking farm pony known for bravery, loyalty, and a tendency to do things her own way.  Her element is honesty.

Rainbow Dash is also voiced by Ashleigh Ball.  A Pegasus, Rainbow Dash has a blue hide and punky, rainbow-striped hair.  Her cutie mark is a cloud over a lightning bolt that has three colors: red, yellow, and blue.  Weather is her forte and her personality can be sunny or stormy.  She tends to be confident and competitive.  Her element is loyalty.

Fluttershy is voiced by Andrea Libman.  This pony has a buttery, yellow hide, pink hair, and her cutie mark is three pink butterflies.  She is also a Pegasus.  Fluttershy is, as her name suggests, painfully shy.  But she has a strong connection with animals.  In fact, she is an animal caretaker.  While Fluttershy is retiring, her gentle touch often comes in handy.  Her element is kindness.

Pinkie Pie is also voiced by Andrea Libman, with occasional help from Shannon Chan-Kent.  She has a light pink hide and wild, bouncy, hot-pink curls for mane and tail.  Her cutie mark is three balloons in yellow, green, and blue.  Pinkie Pie is outgoing, friendly, and lovable.  She is also easily excited.  So it’s no surprise that this bubbly pony’s element is laughter.

Rarity is voiced by Tabitha St. Germain.  Her unicorn horn gives her magic, just like Twilight Sparkle, but her magic tends to suit her particular talents.  Her hide is white and her purple mane and tail coil into perfect ringlets.  Her cutie mark is three sparkling, blue gemstones.  Rarity loves beauty and fashion and she likes to be the center of attention.  Her element is generosity.

Spike is voiced by Cathy Weseluck.  He is the only member of the core group who isn’t a pony, a girl, or represented by an Element of Harmony.  He is Twilight Sparkle’s best friend and assistant, a baby dragon with purple skin and a green spikes who tags along on her many adventures.
