The guards preparing to charge at Nightmare Moon.
Nightmare Moon transforms into purple mist
Royal guards have been downed apparently. Poor guys.
must have good reflection skills to be able to bite Rainbow
's when she's about to fly off.
Nightmare Moon, escaping the Town Hall.
"We gotta stop Nightmare..."
Twilight causing ruckus while searching for answers.
"How can I stop Night Mare Moon?!"
Back in the library, Twilight Sparkle looks for books on the elusive Elements of Harmony.
"And what are the Elements of Harmony?"
"And how did you know about Nightmare Moon?"
Rainbow Dash cornering Twilight.
"Are you a spy?"
"I'm afraid not."
Applejack shows up and pulls back Rainbow Dash, telling her to "simmer down".
Applejack and the others, all have worried, concerned looks.
"I read all about the prediction of Nightmare Moon."
"Some mysterious objects called the Elements of Harmony are the only things that can stop her..."
"..but I don't know what they are, where to find them: I don't even know what they do!"
: "The Elements of Harmony: A Reference Guide."
Pinkie getting pushed away by Twilight.
"How did you find that?!"
"There are six Elements of Harmony, but only five are known:"
"Kindness, Laughter, Generosity..."
"...Honesty and Loyalty."
"The sixth is a complete mystery."
"It is said, the last known location of the five elements was in the ancient castle of the royal pony sisters."
"It is located in what is now--"
Ponies vs. the Everfree Forest
Pinkie: "Whee, let's go!"
Pinkie making a derp face.
"I appreciate the offer."
"but I'd really rather do this on my own."
Applejack says, "No can do, sugarcube. We sure ain't lettin' any friend of ours go into that creepy place alone."
Applejack insists they all go in with her.
The friends walk straight into the forest, agreeing to stick to Twilight "like caramel on a candy apple".
"Especially if there's candy apples in there."
"What? Those things are good."
Twilight sighs before following her friends into the forest.
Twilight asks her friends, "So, none of you have been in here before?"
"Heavens no! Just look at it. It's dreadful!"
"And it ain't natural. Folk say it don't work the same as Equestria."
As she speaks, the mist seeps into the cliff that they are walking on.
"Nopony knows. You know why?"
Applejack tells her to "quit it".
"'Cause everypony who's ever come in..."
The cliff begins to fall...
...and the ponies begin to fall off...
Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy dive in to save them.
"Oh my goodness, oh my goodness!"
Fluttershy dives in to the rescue.
Delicately grabs the Lady.
Quick! Grab the random plant!
Twilight slides to the very edge of the cliff.
Twilight hangs on for dear life.
Applejack lets go of her vine.
"Applejack! What do I do?!"
"No I ain't. I promise you'll be safe.""
"What I'm sayin' to you is the honest truth. Let go, and you'll be safe."
"Yaaaaaaa-hoo-hoo-hoo-hooey!" - Twilight's goofy yell.
Twilight sure is relieved.
Fluttershy: "Sorry girls. I'm not used to holding anything more than a bunny or two."
Twilight is grateful for what Applejack did.
There goes Nightmare Moon.
The mist chooses its next peril for the friends.
"And once Pinkie and Rarity were saved, whoosh..."
"...loop-de-loop around and..."
"...WHAM! Caught you right in the nick of time."
"Yes, Rainbow, I was there. And I'm very grateful."
A wild Manticore appeared!
Fluttershy is the only one who seems concerned about it.
Rarity runs away while Fluttershy quietly protests, "Wait!"
Applejack on the manticore's back.
"Get along, little doggie!"
However, the manticore bucks Applejack off.
Fluttershy's mane is blown aside by Rainbow Dash's flight.
Rainbow Dash and the manticore.
The manticore powerfully smacks Dash with its tail.
Twilight cries, "Rainbow!"
This is the last straw for Twilight.
At that moment, Fluttershy steps in their way and screams, "WAAIT!"
Fluttershy has her ways with wild creatures.
Fluttershy walking up to the manticore.
The friends are astonished to hear Fluttershy saying, "Shh... it's okay."
Fluttershy nuzzles the manticore's paw.
"Oh, you poor, poor little baby."
"Now this might hurt for just a second."
Manedrocles and the Manticore
The true Element of Kindness.
"How did you know about the thorn?"
"Sometimes we all just need to be shown a little kindness."
Twilight Sparkle, With a cute smile.
"My eyes need a rest from all this icky muck."
"Well, I didn't mean that literally."
"Oh wait, I think I stepped in somethin'."
Fluttershy sees a scary face on a tree.
At first we were like "What the?"
But then were like "AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!"(So much for not being afraid of anything, Rainbow Dash)
This is how Pinkie reacts to the scary trees.
Making faces at the tree.
Looks like Pinkie was trying a little too hard...
"Pinkie, what are you doing? Run!"
"Oh, girls, don't you see?"
"When I was a little filly and the sun was going do-o-own...
The darkness and the shadows,
...they would always make me
"I'd hide under my pillow, from what I thought I saw."
"But Granny Pie said that wasn't the way to deal with fears at all."
"She said, 'Pinkie, you gotta stand up tall, learn to face your fears...'"
"'You'll see that they can't hurt you: just laugh to make them disappear.'"
Just laugh to make the Ghosties disappear. See? Easy as Pie!
Whoa! It really works! Maybe WE should try!
"So..." Pinkie what's wrong with your lips
"Crack up at the creepy!"
"Whoop it up with the weepy!"
"And tell that big dumb scary face to take a hike and leave you alone and-
"if he thinks he can scare you then he's got another thing coming-"
"-and the very idea of such a thing just makes you wanna... hahahaha...heh..."
Pinkie Pie, the Element of Laughter.
Twilight and Pinkie, laughing.
Their path is impeded by a river.
The six friends look on to a rather strange river.
They encounter a sobbing sea serpent.
"Excuse me, sir. Why are you crying?"
Well, I don't know. I was just sitting here, minding my own business, when this tacky little cloud of purple smoke just whisked past me..."
"...and tore half of my beloved mustache clean off."
"And now I look simply horrid!"
What's soaking wet and irritated? Pinkie kinda looks like her filly self before the sonic rainboom.
"Oh, give me a break." "That's what all the fuss is about?"
"How can you be so insensitive?"
"Such lovely luminescent scales."
"And your expertly coiffed mane."
"Oh, I know, I know."
"Your fabulous manicure."
"All ruined without your beautiful mustache."
Rarity talking to the sea serpent.
"It's true, I'm hideous!"
"against fabulosity go uncorrected."
Biting off one of the serpent's scales.
"What did you do that for?"
Shocked Applejack is shocked.
, cutting off her beautiful tail..
Ooh my new mustache, I simply adore it!
Rarity had cut off her tail for the serpent's mustache.
"Oh. It's fine, my dear. Short tails are in this season."
"Besides, it'll grow back."
She sure knows Generosity!
"So would the mustache..."
Trotting happily though the water.
Mane 6 crossing the serpent's pass.
A near death experience just happened.
What's with you and falling off of cliffs?
Leave the job to Rainbow Dash
We've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the best flyer in Equestria.
We want you to join us...
"We're the greatest aerial team in the Everfree Forest..."
"...and soon we will be the greatest in all Equestria..."
"...but first we need..."
Rainbow knows she's TOTALLY ADORABLE!
"The most magnificent..."
Dash is told that she would be the new Shadowbolts captain.
"Just let me tie this bridge real quick and--"
"Rainbow, what's taking so long?"
Seeing Rainbow with the Shadowbolts.
Making the smoke too thick to hear Twilight's voice.
Dash doesn't want to leave her friends behind
"Thank you. For the offer, I mean."
Did she just turn us down?!
"But I'm afraid I have to say no."
She didn't leave her friends behind
"See? I'd never leave my friends hangin'."
The main cast entering the chamber with the elements. (Notice there are 6 now...)
"Whoa. Come on, Twilight. Isn't this what you've been waitin' for?"
The petrified Elements of Harmony. (...now there's five, where's that extra one?)
Fluttershy with an element in her hooves.
One... two... three... four...
Bring forth the sixth element!
"What in the hay is that supposed to mean?"
Twilight going to use magic on the elements.
"Come on now, y'all. She needs to concentrate."
Applejack calling for Twilight, who has disappeared.
A Wild Nightmare Moon Appareared!
You're going to have to deal with me!
Remember they're ponies, not pony-shaped humans.
"You're kidding. You're kidding, right?"
Twilight versus Nightmare Moon.
Come on, just one more try.
For some reason, Nightmare Moon has a purple wing instead of a black one. Whoopsies!
Nightmare Moon is not pleased.
Using magic, in hopes to find the 'spark'.
Oh no! The spark! It's...It's...
About to smash the elements.
"You little foal! Thinking you could defeat me!"
"Now you will never see your princess..."
WHAT AM I SUPPOSE TO DO NOW?!
"You think you can destroy The Elements of Harmony just like that?"
"...because the spirits of The Elements of Harmony are right..."
Ooh no, that's not happening!
"Applejack represents the element of..."
"Fluttershy, who tamed the manticore with her compassion..."
"...represents the spirit of...kindness!"
"What happened to my eyes?"
"Rarity, who calmed a sorrowful serpent with a meaningful gift represents the spirit of... generosity!"
Rainbow Dash represents the element of loyalty!
"You still don't have the sixth element!"
"A different kind of spark!"
"I felt it the very moment I realized..."
"...how happy I was to hear you..."
"...how much I cared about you."
"The spark ignited inside me..."
"...when I realized that you all..."
Here comes another element again!
Lo! The Element of Magic stone orb appears!
Shield yourself, it's your only protection.
"You see, Nightmare Moon, when those Elements are ignited by the... the spark, that resides in the heart of us all..."
"...it creates the sixth element: the element of..."
Fluttershy's element is about to be created...
Pinkie likes it. Hey, Dash she likes it!
The five elements joined by the six.
By our powers combined...
Nightmare Moon, feeling a little Tired.
The ponies activating the Elements of Harmony.
Now Twilight has glowing eyes.
Whoa... that was a wild ride...
rejoicing after being reunited with her tail.
Rarity reunites with her tail.
"It looks just like your cutie mark."
Fluttershy with her necklace.
"Look at mine! Look at mine!"
Twilight with her element.
It sure looks good on me..
You've all done fantastic
The light... it speaks...
Bowing down to Princess Celestia.
Happy to be reunited with her mentor.
"Twilight Sparkle, my faithful student. I knew you could do it."
"But... you told me it was all an old pony tale."
"I told you that you needed to make some friends, nothing more."
"I saw the signs of Nightmare Moon's return and I knew it was you who had the magic inside to defeat her."
"But you could not unleash it until you let true friendship into your heart."
Nightmare Moon is no more; this is Princess Luna.
Princess Luna with her eyes closed.
Luna, still lying on the floor, opens her eyes to see Princess Celestia.
"It has been a thousand years since I have seen you like this."
"Time to put our differences behind us. We were meant to rule together, little sister."
I've missed you, you know...
The Main 6 watch Celestia try to make peace with Luna. Rarity says,"I love her mane!"
Pinkie Pie loses her balance from leaning over too much.
I want my SISTER!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought Celestia was the sun princess, not the swan princess
I missed you, big sister.
The sisters are finally reunited after 1000 years.
Why is it that I always cry during such a happy ending?
The ponies running to Pinkie's party.
Ponies, all going to Pinkie's celebration.
Twilight! Where did you go?
Spike giving Twilight a hug.
Regal and radiant Celestia.
Princess Luna, still upset over what happened.
...Awwh, that was so sweet.
"Are you not happy that your quest is complete and you can return to your studies in Canterlot?" (Note tail on cutie mark.)
"Just when I learned how wonderful it is to have friends..."
"...I have to leave them."
"Spike, take a note please."
"I, Princess Celestia..."
"...hereby decree that the unicorn Twilight Sparkle shall take on a new mission for Equestria."
"She must continue to study the magic of friendship. She must report to me her findings..."
"...from her new home in Ponyville."
I love my new best friends!
got a tad too excited. (animation error)
See, I told you Twilight has lots and lots of new friends.
The first of Pinkie's many breakages of the fourth wall.
Pinkie looking at the screen.
Gassssp! I just realized that this is the start of a nine year journey!
