Friendship is Magic, part 1
The Ticket Master

Friendship is Magic, part 2 is the second episode of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. The episode is referred to as Elements of Harmony on Hasbro's viewing guide.[2]

In this episode, Twilight Sparkle and her new friends travel to the Castle of the Royal Pony Sisters to retrieve the Elements of Harmony in the hope of stopping Nightmare Moon from taking over Equestria.



In Golden Oak Library, Twilight Sparkle and her friends find a book about the Elements of Harmony. They learn that the elements of kindness, laughter, generosity, honesty, and loyalty are known, but the sixth is a mystery. The book also says that the Elements are stored in the royal sisters' ancient castle in the Everfree Forest. The ponies decide to look for the Elements and are unaware that Nightmare Moon has been listening to their conversation the whole time.

The cliff: element of honesty

Twilight let go S1E2
Applejack tells Twilight to let go.
"What I'm sayin' to you is the honest truth. Let go, and you'll be safe."
— Applejack

The ponies enter the Everfree Forest. When they are walking on a mountainside, a cloud of purple smoke triggers a landslide. Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash catch Rarity and Pinkie Pie, but Twilight slides to the edge of a steep cliff. Applejack assures Twilight that she will be safe if she lets go of the cliff. Twilight lets go, and Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy catch her.

The manticore: element of kindness

Manticore licking Fluttershy's mane S1E02
Fluttershy shows compassion to the manticore, winning its trust.
"Sometimes we all just need to be shown a little kindness."
— Fluttershy
An angry manticore confronts the ponies. When the other ponies try to forcefully subdue it, Fluttershy tells them to stop. She kindly approaches the manticore. It shows her a thorn stuck in its paw. She removes the thorn and the grateful manticore licks her mane. The thorn dissolves into purple smoke, which zooms away.

The forest: element of laughter

Friends all laughing at trees S1E02
Pinkie Pie teaches her friends how to banish their fears.
"You'll see that they can't hurt you; just laugh to make them disappear!"
— Pinkie Pie
The cloud of purple smoke makes monstrous faces appear on the trees around the ponies. All the ponies except for Pinkie are scared. Pinkie sings the Laughter Song and teaches her friends to laugh at their fears. The friends' laughter turns the trees back to normal.

The sea serpent: element of generosity

"I cannot have this crime against fabulosity go uncorrected!"
— Rarity

The ponies come across a river blocked by a sea serpent. The sea serpent is upset that a "tacky little cloud of purple smoke" whisked by and tore off half his mustache. Rarity generously donates her own tail to repair the sea serpent's mustache. The sea serpent, extremely pleased and grateful, helps the ponies cross the river.

The Shadowbolts: element of loyalty

Rainbow Dash and the Shadowbolts S01E02
The Shadowbolts test Rainbow Dash's loyalty by offering her fame and power.
OcredanAdded by Ocredan
"I'd never leave my friends hanging."
— Rainbow Dash

The castle ruins are in sight, but the ponies cannot cross a gorge because the bridge is broken. When Rainbow Dash flies to the other side to fix the bridge, three Pegasi appear and invite her to be captain of the Shadowbolts, their group of elite fliers. When Rainbow Dash learns that she must desert her friends to join the Shadowbolts, she turns down the Shadowbolts and ties the bridge so her friends can cross. The Shadowbolts turn into purple smoke, which slithers away.

Nightmare Moon: element of magic

The power of friendship!

The ponies enter the castle ruins and find five stone orbs, which Twilight believes are the first five Elements of Harmony. Nightmare Moon creates a purple whirlwind that teleports Twilight and the orbs to another tower. Nightmare Moon and Twilight face off, but Nightmare Moon shatters the orbs. The friends run into the hall and comfort Twilight. Twilight realizes that the spirits of the Elements are present, and explains how her friends represent the elements of honesty, kindness, laughter, generosity, and loyalty. The fragments of the orbs begin to circle the friends. A stone orb magically appears over Twilight, and she declares:
"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... magic!"
— Twilight Sparkle
Princess Celestia offers her friendship to Princess Luna S01E02
Meet Luna, Celestia's little sister.
TeyBotAdded by TeyBot
The orb fragments form golden jeweled necklaces on the five friends' necks, and Twilight's orb becomes a crown. The Elements glow and the ponies are lifted into the air. A rainbow-colored double helix envelopes Nightmare Moon. The room is flooded with light. When the light fades, the friends discover that the gems on their necklaces resemble their cutie marks, and Rarity's tail has magically grown back.

Princess Celestia appears and explains that Twilight had the magic to defeat Nightmare Moon as long as she let true friendship into her heart. Nightmare Moon returns to her original form, Princess Luna. The friends learn that Luna is Celestia's younger sister, and the sisters reconcile.

Twilight's new mission

Celestia assigning new mission for Twilight S1E02
Princess Celestia tells Twilight to study the magic of friendship.
Back in Ponyville, Pinkie throws a party to celebrate the royal sisters' reunion. When Twilight tells Celestia that she doesn't want to leave her new friends, Celestia gives her a new mission: to continue studying the magic of friendship in Ponyville and report back her findings. Twilight promises to study harder than ever, much to the delight of her new friends and the citizens of Ponyville.


For more quotes, see the episode's transcript.
Twilight Sparkle: 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!
Pinkie Pie: The Elements of Harmony: A Reference Guide.
Twilight Sparkle: How did you find that?
Pinkie Pie: [sing-song voice] It was under "E"!
Twilight Sparkle: Oh.
Applejack: We're stickin' to you like caramel on a candy apple.
Pinkie Pie: Especially if there's candy apples in there. What? Those things are good!
Fluttershy : [to the manticore] Oh, you poor, poor little baby.
Rainbow Dash: Little?
Rarity: Such lovely luminescent scales.
Sea Serpent: I know.
Rarity: Your expertly coiffed mane.
Sea Serpent: Oh, I know, I know!
Rarity: Your fabulous manicure.
Sea Serpent: It's so true!
Rarity: All ruined without your beautiful mustache.
Sea Serpent: It's true, I'm hideous!
Twilight Sparkle: Oh, Rarity, your beautiful tail!
Rarity: Oh, it's fine, my dear. Short tails are in this season. Besides, it'll grow back.
Rainbow Dash: So would the mustache.
Nightmare Moon: You still don't have the sixth Element! The spark didn't work!
Twilight Sparkle: But it did! A different kind of spark. I felt it the very moment I realized how happy I was to hear you, to see you, how much I cared about you. The spark ignited inside me when I realized that you all... are my friends! 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... magic!
