It's MY magic that makes all this possible. You don't still be living your miserable lives thinking you are better than everybody else if it weren't of MY magical abilities. I brought you friendship, I brought you equality. I created HARMONY.

Description

Starlight Glimmer is mentally unstable, very skilled, powerfull and talented unicorn with incredibly amount of magic knowledge (Twilight the princess of magic said herself that she can't beat Starlight in fair 1vs1 fight). She was abandoned by her only friend (and the other people from the village) when she was like ~4-5 years old (in human terms of aging) because her friend's talent showed faster than her. (that mark on the pony butt symbols the talent of the pony). Overall we can say that she went creazy, grow up, took control in the random village, made communistic (not nazi - communictic! That's the common mistake in the mlp community) cult around herself and then beat up Twilight before she could react. After all, Twilight escaped, Starlight ran off and almost destroyed the world by using time travel spell (you know she manipulated the entire past to get revange on the protagonist. At the end she bacame Twilight friend (because friendship is the plot of the show, blah [but seriously now - that was lame]). Now she expanded her magicial abilities and knowledge even more what makes her very dangerous enemy. She is a master of making new spells, controlling minds with spells.. actualy she is simply the master of magic which can discover and create spells which even that "Princess of Magic" never dreamed about.

Experience and age

Starlight Well she is definitely experienced in magic duels. She doesn't have any problems with fighting as an equal with Twilight who has experience of fighting with multiple enemies at once, fast and strong beasts, powerfull magicians and even experience of fighting with godlike creatures (Like planetary level reality warper or Tirek who's magic was at least nuke level. She never underestimates her enemies. I think that she's supposed to be around 30-40 years old. While she was 4-5 years old she was expanding her magicial abilities, skill and knowledge so that gaves her like 30 years of experience at least.

Spells

First of all. According to Starlight statement that her magic is based on the emotions. She's like the Hulk. The angrier she gets the more powerfull she becomes (magic-wise). Anger doesn't affect on her physicals.

Super speed spell

  • Effect: Amps person speed. How much? Well with this spell Starlight was able to pick up, organise in very complicated order and put in place 20,000 books in four seconds. Spell allows her to run on walls.

Twilight says her library contains at least... *drum roll* 20,000 books! can we take Twi at her word? one hundred percent yes, its one of her character traits that she is extremely organized, some times to the point of insanity. if Twi says she has at least 20,000 books in her library you can bet she has at least 20,000. Here is the Accelero feat, it takes starlight 4 seconds to stack and organise in complicated way the entire library. 20,000 books divided by 4 = 5,000! Accelero amped Starlight to the point where she could perform roughly 5,000 actions per second!

Teleportation of another people and objects

Starlight equallity beam

  • Effect: Instatly takes away all of the abilities, powers and skills the target has. Significantly weakens character physicals. Rainbow Dash who can fly even 3,800 mph after being tagged by this spell was flying slower than average pony can run.

This wall of glass was used to storage talents, however there's no clue that this spell cannot be used without the wall.

  • Examples (with some Twilight feats, but they are equal magic-wise):

- Twilight fully repairs a broken dam so well no cracks can be seen.

- Twilight telekinetically lifts and transports a building sized bear and a water tower.

  • Effect and example: Sorcerer can meld the consciousness of anybody into her own mind but keeping herself in control. If any telepath will try to enter her mind he will get melted into sorcerer mind leaving his body as defenseless puppet. She gains every power of that person but that melted person can't do anything to break free / possess sorcerer.
  • Casting time: It should take something like 1 second. Twilight needed her spellbook to cast it for first time, but she has shown that she don't need her spellbook to cast spells for the second time. Same for Starlight
  • Duration: untill sorcerer who casted it doesn't delete the effect

Imagination spell

  • Effect: Sorcerer can create magical illusion in his mind. He can create anything and see how it will work out. (For example he can create him vs Dceu Superman fight in his mind). Usefull with prior knowledge and prep time. However this spell is basically useless without prior knowledge because without knowing who he's fighting against (and his feats) he can't create somehow-truthful fight outcome. I'm thinking that they can create something like this but with this spell Sherlock would be seeing this from third-person point of view. There's also another interesting usage for this spell. I mean sorcerer can cast it on other people and on himself at the same time. Basically he can create an alternate battlefield where he can do whatever he wants. Black hole? Done. High ground for him? Done. But it's tricky due to lack of feats. We don't know if he can injure spectral forms of other people and how it would affect the physical body. As far I understand mind of person in trapped in the imagination and the bodies just stand there defenseless. So it can be used in teamfights to trap minds of your opponents while your team can easily kill their bodies.
  • Casting time: second maybe few. Doesn't matter.
  • Duration: Untill sorcerer who casted it doesn't delete the effect

Strenght

Currently lack of feats. Farmers from show are strong enough to break through wooden shields with a kick.

Reflexes

She has shown the ability to dodge laser beams in middle air with teleportation while simultaneously casting other spells. She can enhance their reflexes with magic too. I'm talking about super speed spell. If you don't believe that those spells are fast or her reflexes are good remember that Starlight tagged very small targed who was breaking the barrier of the sound with his speed. Without effort. After making some math whe can assume that those laser beams travel with speed of ~320-360 m/s. And she was able to react to them at distance of 30 feets while simultaneously casting other spells. It's makes her an bullet-timing character at least.

Casually dodges magic laser beam. Worth to notice is that she doesn't simple dodges it with her body. She moves herself with magical telekinesis. This takes more time to cast it than simply dodge.

You can see that Twilight is trying to confuse Starlight with teleportation and then shot her before she can react. But Starlight shows great awareness of the environment and incapacitates Twilight before she could finish her attack in second.

Speed

They normal land speed is average but thanks to the flying they can travel very fast. An athlete from their universe is able to break the barrier of the sound with his speed in like 2 seconds. Starlight is way more talented and can enhance her physicials even more. Good example is Starlight super speed spell.

Rainbow Dash top speed is 3,800 mph

Durability

Starlight relies on magic shields which can be even mountain level and her mobility but overall ponies have few good durability feats. For example:

  • Princess Luna was banished from the planet to the moon. She survived there ~1000 years without water, food or air. Her body resisted gravity that should tear her apart and she survived the temperature of the atmosphere what should melt her down and temperature of the moon that should freeze her organs.
  • Twilight was thrown into the mountain so hard that she break through. She was fine.
  • Their stamina is almost limitless. When they are tired they can restore their stamina in second.
  • Starlight & Twilight survived on the bottom of the ocean where temperature alone should have freeze them and gravity should break their organs
  • Ponies should have good telepathy resistance. Their magic is highly mental/mistic and their tp defenses are as potent as their magic powers. +There's many magic spells that allows them to use/counter telepathy or manipulate minds.

Intelligence

- Starlight is prep master. She creates spells all the time. Spells that even princess of magic never heard off. Example: Time travel spells which she discovered and upgraded without any help. It's one of the most advanced spells ever created.

- Hardly a intelligence feat but it's worth to mention that Starlight never underestimates her enemy and even if she's arrogant she doesn't make stupid mistakes like this

Senses

Ponies seems to have normal, standard senses. Starlight knows immediately where Twilight has teleported. (in one episode during fight and in another outside of fight). She seems to have something like magic sense that allows her to know to where in the world sorcerer has teleported.

Star Wars.

It's a way to say that I think Starlight is kind of a Mary Sue IMO.

@laylah: Ahh, now I get it. I was thinking about you comparing Starlight to Rey but I wasn't sure so I have decided to ask. Overall I like Starlight (Rara=Discord>Starlight>everyone else) but at the end of season 5 redemption was too rushed. Happened to fast what was pretty lame.
