FC Tier List

Post  Setrin on Wed Aug 07, 2013 8:30 pm

Not all canon characters are created equal. As such, different characters will fall within different tiers in terms of auditioning, limitations, and how the FC rules concern them.

Tier 1
Tier 1 Feature Characters (FCs) are the major canon characters of Friendship is Magic. They have primary focus in a majority of episodes and have lasting impact on major plotlines. T1 FCs abide by the strictest auditions and have the most rules concerning them.

  • T1 FCs must engage in active/public scenes once a week.
  • It is highly encouraged to do scenes other related FCs are involved in.
  • T1s are not allowed to have out-of-canon relatives or permanent relationships.
  • A player will be unable to audition for a T1 character if they either have three citations or have received a citation two weeks before the audition announcement. Likewise a player can lose their character if they obtain a third citation with the character.

The list of T1s include the Mane 6 (Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Applejack, and Fluttershy), Spike, the Cutie Mark Crusaders (Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, Scootaloo), Shining Armor, the Princesses and Discord.

Tier 2
Tier 2 FCs are reoccurring side-characters with speaking roles and defined personalities. Almost none have had primary episode focus but have been prominently featured. They do not have as many restrictions as T1 characters but follow many of the same basic rules.

  • T2 FCs must engage in active/public scenes at least once every two weeks.
  • T2s are not allowed to have out-of-canon relatives or permanent relationships.
  • A player will be unable to audition for a T2 character if they either have four citations or have received a citation two weeks before the audition announcement. Likewise a player can lose their character if they obtain a fourth citation with the character.

The list of T2s include, but are not limited to Big Macintosh, Trixie, Gilda, Cheerilee, Zecora, Granny Smith, Fancypants, Spitfire, Prince Blueblood, and others.

Tier 3
Tier 3 FCs are background ponies with no distinct or constant personalities. They appear with no real focus on the episode and don't even have official names on occasion. T3s have no RP requirements, no auditions, and are granted upon request.

  • If a player leaves, is banned, or otherwise simply gives up a T3 character, they will be announced as playable again. However, there will not be auditions for them unless there is high demand.
  • T3s are not allowed to have family or permanent relationships outside of canon due to the possibility of further canon information getting in the way.

T3 FCs include but are not limited to Lyra Heartstrings, Bon Bon, Vinyl Scratch, Derpy Doo, Golden Harvest, Time Turner, Octavia and others.

Tier 0
Tier 0 characters are the major villains of the series and cannot be readily auditioned for. Instead, they are saved for special plotlines or events. Tier 0 characters include Nightmare Moon, Queen Chrysalis, and King Sombra.

Special Cases

  • Princesses Celestia and Luna have more in common with T2 characters, but are considered important enough to the Equestrian Mythos to warrant T1 status.
  • If a particular T3 character has a lot of demand an audition will be opened as a T2 level audition and judging will be purely on character interpretation as there's no canon to compare to.
  • In-universe fictional characters like Mare-Do-Well, Gabby Gums, and Daring Do cannot be auditioned for.
