Copyright: friendship is magic
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is the latest and ongoing cartoon accompanying the Hasbro Inc. My Little Pony toy line, focusing on the daily lives and adventures of predominantly female equine characters in the magical land of Equestria.
Due to My Little Pony's historical target demographic of 6~10 year old girls and Friendship is Magic's unexpectedly high ratings, the show is the topic of significant Internet controversy - you either love it or you hate it.
- friendship is magic is not to be applied to any fan character - it only applies to canon content.
- Editors will most likely never need to manually tag friendship is magic, as it is implicated by every character, species, or other element specific to the franchise, barring very new content yet to be implicated.
- "Fan characters" include "alternate universe" interpretations of canon characters such as Fallout Equestria or Princess Molestia.
- Twilight Sparkle, the central protagonist
- Fluttershy and her "vampire fruit batpony" form Flutterbat
- Pinkie Pie and her "sad" persona Pinkamena
- Rainbow Dash
- Rarity and her comic-only evil state Nightmare Rarity
- Starlight Glimmer, added to major cast in season 6
- Spike, Twilight's more-or-less pet dragon and effective little brother
- The Cutie Mark Crusaders
- Apple Bloom, Applejack's younger sister
- Scootaloo, nobody's younger sister
- Sweetie Belle, Rarity's younger sister
- Big Macintosh, Applejack's older brother
- Princess Celestia
- Discord, God of Chaos and mix-match species draconequus
- Granny Smith, Applejack's grandmother
- Princess Luna and her former evil state Nightmare Moon
