As for more specifics, My Little Pony follows a studious unicorn pony named Twilight Sparkle as her mentor Princess Celestia guides her to learn about friendship in the town of Ponyville. Twilight becomes close friends with five other ponies: Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie. Each of the ponies represent a different facet of friendship, and Twilight discovers herself to be a key part of the magical artifacts known as the "Elements of Harmony." The ponies travel on adventures and help others around Equestria while working out problems that arise in their own friendships.
So let's do a My Little Pony "Mane 6" roll call!
Element of Harmony: Magic
Princess Twilight Sparkle has a love of learning unmatched in Equestria. She is a natural leader, a patient friend, an obsessive organizer, and an avid reader. As a young filly in Canterlot, she was chosen by Princess Celestia to study the highest form of magic as the princess’s apprentice. Seeing Twilight value knowledge over friends, the Princess sent Twilight to Ponyville to learn the magical properties of friendship. Because Twilight not only mastered magic, but also created magic of her own through such friendship, she has been bestowed with wings and the title PRINCESS TWILIGHT SPARKLE.
Element of Harmony: Kindness
Fluttershy is a natural beauty with gentle, serene ways. Despite her shy and unassuming nature, Fluttershy has a unique gift with animals. Her sweetness and sincerity can charm every animal, from tiny woodland creatures to the most powerful of mythical beasts, making her a valuable asset to her friends in all their adventures. While she lacks confidence, she has an inner strength that comes out when others are in trouble. Fluttershy has a lot of fears to overcome, but one day her strength of character and enormous heart will make her a force to be reckoned with.
Element of Harmony: Honesty
Applejack is Ponyville’s resident farm gal! She lives just outside town at Sweet Apple Acres with the rest of the Apple family. Applejack is the most down-to-earth, resourceful, and dependable pony around, who isn’t afraid to get her hooves dirty. This hardworking Earth Pony is family-oriented and always ready to help anyone from Granny Smith to her little sister, Apple Bloom. Incredibly honest, Applejack would never stoop to telling a lie. However, her honesty and practicality keeps her from being as sensitive to others’ feelings as she could be, despite her best intentions. Although Applejack can be a bit set in her ways, her friends know they can always count on this trustworthy pony to come through for them.
Element of Harmony: Loyalty
Rainbow Dash has one great all-consuming passion in life -- to fly FAST! Anypony who has ever seen this rainbow-haired Pegasus from Cloudsdale in the air has been in awe of her speed, agility, and confidence. When any problem big or small arises, this aspiring Wonderbolt is the first to volunteer to save the day. Despite the mischief she causes, her friends are happy to have her around when danger is brewing, as Rainbow Dash proves time and time again that she is a true hero and a true friend.
Element of Harmony: Generosity
Rarity could possibly be the most beautiful Unicorn you’ve ever seen, and she works hard to keep it that way—but she wants everypony to be beautiful, too! She uses her eye for detail, her creativity, and her Unicorn powers to find gems and make things sparkle! Her gorgeous designs are displayed at Ponyville’s newest fashion salon, the Carousel Boutique. Rarity sees tremendous potential in her friends and always offers them makeovers or beautiful new clothes of her own design. Rarity’s generous nature inspires her to make her friends as beautiful on the outside as she knows they are on the inside. Though she may sometimes come off a bit prissy, Rarity has a heart as pure as gold.
Element of Harmony: Laughter
Giggly, playful, and super girly, it’s not unusual to find PINKIE PIE prancing and skipping blissfully through the streets of Ponyville. The silliest pony around, Pinkie Pie has a desire to entertain that makes her the most likely source for humor. She is a free spirit, often acting on her whims and following her heart. Eager to amuse her friends and make everypony happy, Pinkie Pie will find any excuse to throw a party or celebrate.
