Hero Overview

Sunshine, sunshine! Ladybugs awake! Clap your hooves and do a little shake!
~ Cadance

Princess Cadance is a recurring character in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She is an alicorn pony who is first featured in the season two finale "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1" alongside Shining Armor, her husband (after the season 2 finale). Her debut episode gives her proper title as Princess Mi Amore Cadenza. She is Twilight Sparkle's foal-sitter in Twilight's flashback, and she becomes her sister-in-law after marrying Shining Armor in A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2. She is the crystal princess and also she also revealed she's pregnant in one of the newer episodes and Pinkie had to keep it a secret. It is revealed that she was born as a Pegasus in the book.

Cadance becomes Flurry Heart's mother after she gives birth to her daughter.

She was voiced by Britt McKillip, who voiced Princess Harumi from Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, Hannah Marie from Scary Godmother: Halloween Spooktacular, Baby Lola from Baby Looney Tunes, Sabrina Spellman from Sabrina's Secret Life, Peppermint Girl in Barbie in the Nutcracker, Princess Melody in Barbie as Rapunzel, Princess Janessa in Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses, and Princess Rita in Barbie as The Island Princess.


Princess Cadance is depicted as kind, caring, helpful and natural as a leader. She has a long history and friendship with Twilight Sparkle from when they were young, as seen in a flashback in A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1. She can be extraordinarily persistent, for in spite of her growing weakness, she attempts to protect the Crystal Empire with her magic until she reaches her physical limit. Cadance is also depicted as adventurous and somewhat laid-back in Three's A Crowd.
