A demony, evil half-demon, half-pony, Dramon captures the others. Will the mane 6 save Equestria?

Characters

Mane 6

  • Tara Strong as Twilight Sparkle, a unicorn who leads her friends in spreading harmony across Equestria. She rides her dragon Hookfang, a Monstrous Nightmare.
  • Rebecca Shoichet performs Twilight Sparkle's singing voice.

Tropical Ponies

Other

  • John de Lancie as Discord, a Greek mythology-inspired creature called a "draconequus".
  • Robbie Daymond as Spot, Fluttershy's pet playful dog. He is yellow brown spoted with brown ears. He has a brown spot on him. He has a barking noises. He is Toothless' best friend.
  • Will Ferrell as Dramon, an evil demony, half-demon, half-pony. He can catch the dragons (except the Night Fury). He is killed by the Mane 6.

Dragons

  • Toothless, an extremely rare male of the Night Fury species, befriended by Fluttershy, Melody's boyfriend, and the only dragon that can fly with or without his pony friend. He has dark black scales, retractable teeth, and shoots blue/purple plasma bolts which can create light or fire. He is the fastest, most intelligent, and rarest dragon on ponyville. Toothless also has the unique ability to navigate in dark places using animal echolocation. His singing voice is Taye Diggs.
  • Melody, an extremely rare female of the Night Fury species, who was Toothless's girlfriend. She has light black scales, retractable teeth, and shoots pink/purple plasma bolts which can create light or fire. She is the fastest, most intelligent, and rarest dragon on ponyville. Melody also has the unique ability to navigate in dark places using animal echolocation. Her singing voice is Uzo Aduba.
  • Hookfang, a red, male Monstrous Nightmare, ridden by Twilight Sparkle. Hookfang has a habit of attacking twilight or abandoning her when twilight tries to assert dominance, and does not always pay attention to twilight. In battle, Hookfang covers his skin with his flammable saliva and sets it fire, without harming himself; this ability is almost never used when twilight is riding him.
  • Meatlug, a brown, female Gronckle who bonded with Pinkie Pie. Because of her husky size and short wingspan, she lacks the aerobatic maneuverability and speed of the other dragons. She and Pinkie Pie have a very close, nurturing relationship. She also can eat a particular combination of iron ore and rocks.
  • Barf And Belch, a green, male, two-headed Hideous Zippleback jointly ridden by Rarity, sitting on the dragon's right head, named Barf (which exhales explosive gas), and Applejack, sitting on the dragon's left head, named Belch (which can ignite the gas). The heads are usually agreeable, but can have difficulty flying when their ponies disagree, and sometimes therefore quarrel.
  • Stormfly, a blue, female Deadly Nadder dragon befriended by Rainbow Dash. Like Fluttershy and Toothless, Rainbow Dash and Stormfly display exceptional teamwork. She and Toothless share a friendly rivalry in most of the competitions Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash devise. In addition to her magnesium-fueled fire bursts, Stormfly can launch spines from her tail.
  • Sparky, a lime-green, male Terrible Terror. He is befriended by Butterfly Dazzle.
  • Windshear is a silver, female Razorwhip.
  • Thornado is a blue, male Thunderdrum.
  • Groundsplitter is a green, female Whispering Death.
  • Sleuther is a yellow and purple, male Triple Stryke.
