My Little Pony TV Specials Characters

Megan Williams

A young cowgirl who lives on a (normal & not talking) pony farm, one day she finds a pink talking pegasus pony in her well and a duet later she's whisked away on an adventure to save the land ponies.


A baby dragon who was friends with Scorpan and wants to help out as much as possible.

Rescue from Midnight Castle Characters

Firefly, Pegasus

An adventurous, danger seeking pegasus. When ponies start getting kidnapped, she's the one who seeks out help (Megan) and is part of the rescue team. Despite only appearing in "Midnight Castle", Firefly is arguably the most iconic pony of G1 thanks to Wolverine Publicity.

 Firefly: I'm going for the double inside-out loop!

Medley: But it's dangerous Firefly!

Firefly: Danger's my life, Medley!



Firefly's more level headed friend. Doesn't actually go to Midnight Castle.

Twilight, Unicorn

A motherly unicorn who can teleport by wishing, she joins Megan and Firefly on the quest to Midnight Castle.

  • Chekhov's Skill: Near the beginning of the movie, she teleports down from a cliff to the ground. At the climactic scene, she teleports again to escape Tirac's minions and keep them from getting the Rainbow of Darkness back from her.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Ember.
  • Expy: Twilight Sparkle is based off of her.
    • Lawyer-Friendly Cameo: She appeared in a non-speaking role with some of her colors paled, as Twilight's mom of all things.
  • Make a Wish: She'd make wishes so that she could do magic.
  • Mama Bear: Her protectiveness of Ember is why she joins Megan and Firefly to go to Midnight Castle.
  • Multicolored Hair
  • Purple Eyes

Bowtie, Earth Pony

An earth pony who joins Megan & Firefly on the quest to save the other ponies, and pretty awesome.

  • Badass Adorable: Almost on Firefly's level. She fights off no fewer of the dragons than Firefly does.
  • The Big Guy: Of the Five-Man Band
  • Born Lucky: She'd have to be. She narrows averts capture four times over the course of a half-hour special.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Hyper Awareness: Both times the ponies are attacked in their own home, she's the first one to spot the in-coming dragons.
  • Jump Physics: Of the land bound ponies, Bowtie is the best jumper and is quite skilled at it. She goes clean over the heads of Tirac's guards.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: She's no pushover, herself. She's just not quite on Firefly's level of adorable badassery.
  • The Quiet One: is definitely this. She has the fewest lines of the entire speaking cast, but all her lines are important.
  • Straight Mare: She is the calmest, most level-headed of the group, and seems to serve as De fact leader before Megan shows up.
  • Team Mom
  • Tempting Fate: Asks What could happen when they're crossing a very old bridge with sections of board missing. Applejack finds out the hard way.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Of the Earth Ponies, Bowtie is tomboy to Applejack's Girly Girl, despite looking more like a Girly Girl than the latter..
  • Youthful Freckles: On fur, no less!

Applejack, Earth Pony

Is a silly pony. Joins Megan & Firefly on the quest to Midnight Castle. Had a strange encounter with undersea denizens and turned into a dragon.

Ember, Earth pony

A young filly that Twilight is protective of who gets kidnapped by Tirac's forces.

Tirac, Centaur

The evil overlord of Midnight Castle. Not a nice guy in the least.


Tirac's dragon, though he's not as bad as he looks.

Escape from Catrina characters


More or less the star pony of the second special, she's a tad klutzy, but is a really good jumper.

  • Apologizes a Lot
  • Chekhov's Skill: She's a great jumper. A fact that ends up saving the life of Baby Moondancer.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Pink.
  • The Cutie: Yep.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: She thinks very lowly of herself, no thanks to Sparkler. Arguably a much less annoying example than Shady.
  • The Klutz: She's great at jumping high into the air, much like Bowtie was. It's landing where she has trouble.
  • Walking Disaster Area: In the first few minutes, she manages to almost drown Baby Moondancer, ruin a banner, and catapult a unicorn and Baby Dragon through the air into buckets of paint. By accident.


  • Jerkass: Admittedly, we only see her after Sundance has accidentally has ruined a banner she and another pony have worked hard on. Then later catapulted into the air by Sundance which resulted in her being covered her in paint, but she remains very rude and unkind to the poor mare all throughout the special without a single Pet the Dog moment.

Baby Moondancer

Despite an adult Moondancer appearing in the previous special as a background pony, this filly Moondancer gets kidnapped by Catrina.

  • Distressed Damsel: As early as her first few minutes in the special. She's accidentally knocked into the river by Sundance (I'm beginning to sense a pattern here) and almost drowns. She's later kidnapped by Catrina and Rep.
    • Crosses into Badass Damsel in that she's kicking and fighting them every step of the way while loudly calling for help to the point where they can barely handle her.
  • The Cutie: The other one of the special.
  • Not So Harmless: Rep learns this the hard.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Wears a Princess Classic-style one to a costume ball the ponies are holding in Megan, Savior of Worlds', honor.


The villain of the second TV special. A cat witch who really likes her witch weed.


Catrina's shapeshifting lizard sidekick. Wants to go back to the "good ole days". Voiced by Paul Williams of all people.

The Bushwoolies

Small furry dudes who used to be Catrina's slaves, until they decided to high tail it out of there. They help the ponies rescue Baby Moondancer.
