Hero Overview

You really should lighten up, Twilight! It's a party!
~ Spike
You're more than friends. You're my family.
~ Spike to Twilight, Rarity and Rainbow Dash

Spike is one of the seven main protagonists of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the main deuteragonist of the series and one of the main characters of My Little Pony: The Movie.

He is a small purple and green dragon who is Twilight Sparkle's long-time best friend and assistant. Spike also handles communications between Twilight and Celestia, burning Twilight's written messages with his fiery breath to send them and then coughing up the scrolls Celestia sends back. In Season 8 episode "Molt Down", he gains wings.

He is voiced by Cathy Weseluck, who also voices Near from the English dub of Death NoteShampoo from Ranma ½Snoozer from Hamtaro, Dennis Chan from Kid vs. Kat and Buttercream Sundae from Littlest Pet Shop, Marco Van Helsing from Lobo, and previously voiced Rarity in Generation 3 of My Little Pony.

He was voiced by Tabitha St. Germain in My Little Pony: Pony Life

Appearance

Spike is purple with green scales on his back and a round belly. From the Season 8 episode Molt Down, Spike grows a pair of wings due to the molt. In the final episode of the series, Spike has become a full-grown adult, now bigger than his friends, minus Twilight, who has also become the same size as Celestia, but also making him the same size as her and his wings have grown bigger and longer, making him fly more faster. In addition in becoming an adult, his body also becomes more muscular and beefier, making him more stronger than any other dragon as well as creature and pony alike and his face becomes more of a full-grown dragon with his chin bigger and more manly like. He wears a gold medal around his neck as a sign that he is the ambassador of all the creatures.

Personality

He frequently displays a sardonic personality but can be counted on to help Twilight and her friends when they need him. In some of the episodes, it is shown that Spike has a major crush on Rarity, but she only sees him as a friend and is unaware of his affections until she becomes aware and accepts it in Season 2. Twilight hatched Spike from an egg as part of an admission exam for a school of magic run by Celestia, gaining both her cutie mark and a chance to study under Celestia's direct guidance. His greatest achievement is saving the Crystal Empire.

Reception

The feedbacks Spike received is mainly positive from many fans and is one of the most loved characters of the series. Spike even gain more positive receptions after having his own set of wings from Episode "Molt Down" from Season 8.

Fans dislike the "Spike abuse" which in recent seasons has greatly toned down as he gains more involvement in the six's adventures.

Role in My Little Pony: The Movie

Spike begins with running to the Princesses castle to Twilight for some blueprints. He sees than Twilight is worried and he says she will be find and remembering that she's a princess too. Despite Twilight telling her plans to the 1st annual anniversary of friendship, the princesses reject her ideas which leads Twilight disappointed. Spike later would be singing with the Mane 5 "We Got This Together."

When Tempest arrives, Spike asks for her horn, which she begins to attack. Spike escapes with Twilight and the Mane 5 and leaving Equestria in danger. After hearing to Twilight about to find the "hippo" things, Spike (with the Mane 5) agrees to go with her and find them. They end up in a dessert and an exhausted Spike sees there's a road which arrives to KlugeTown. In the city, they are about to be catch by the people, but they are saved by Capper and he takes them to his home. Spike was angry to meet Capper despite the fact he is not trusted, but he follows him with the rest.

After seeing Twilight discovering a book which actually describes the "hippo" things as the Hippogriffs, but later he's shocked to see Capper's true plans. He manages to escape with the Mane 6 after seeing Tempest find them and they end up in a ship lead by Celeano and her crew. He finds himself enjoying it when Rainbow Dash convinces the pirates to be awesome again. After a sonic rainboom, they're found again by Tempest and Celeano helps them to hide. They fall off the ship and they take a balloon plane to travel and finally get in the abandoned island of the hippogriffs.

He goes with the rest in a pool and getting suck in it, and almost no breathing, but they're saved by Princess Skystar by using a breathing bubbles to all of them. They meet Queen Novo and she uses her powers to makes them seaponies. Spike becomes a puffer fish during the process. Twilight decides to distract her friends so she can have the power. Spike was there when Pinkie sings "One Small Thing".

Unfortunately, Twilight was stuck in a trap and with him and the Mane 6 being banished of the hippogriff land, they end up in an island where Twilight gets into an argument with Pinkie and her friends glare at Twilight siding with Pinkie on the fight as Twilight furiously snaps at Pinkie and hurt her with words that made Pinkie shut up and heartbroken, though Spike didn't argue against her. This makes her friends abandon her over her actions and yelling at Pinkie, but Spike knew leaving Twilight was wrong as he tried to say something as Twilight walked off in regret and heartbroken guilt, he decides to stay with Twilight despite what she did. Feeling bad for her, he says that everything will be fine, but Twilight admits she ruined everything. Moments later, Spike is capture by one of Tempest's guards which leads Twilight being capture and Spike screaming by her name. He gets off the guard by using his fire in the process, but he was too late to help.

Spike alerts the Mane 5 that Tempest finally captured Twilight, they were in shock over their mistake of leaving her by herself they decided to rescue her, but they didn't know what to do because they can't catch up fast and they still didn't have anything to fight back with, as the group were starting to believe they finally lost. But Capper, Celaeno, and her crew came back as they survived from the ship that was destroyed and Skystar came back turning herself back into a hippogriff to help too, even though Twilight tried to steal the pearl, she still understands they needed help, and thank them by his actions, they decided to join in rescue Twilight and defeat the Storm King (Despite the fact that she never cared of the rest). They travel to Equestria and they make a giant cake in which Spike was used as a candle, and once they were in, the friends begin to attack the guards. Spike goes with the Mane 5 and Capper to Twilight, and Capper uses Spike as a fire gun indicated that they are at hand now. When the Storm King makes a tornado, Pinkie has the idea of using her canon party and Spike and the Mane 5 fly directly of the tornado and pushes Storm King once it for all. The Mane 5 forgives Twilight for her actions and apologized to her for abandoning her, as they decided to go to the staff together. The Storm King gets up in a fit of desperate rage and fights against Spike and the Mane 6 by racing for the staff, as he jumps to grabs it as Twilight quickly grabs it but both Twilight and the Storm King get sucked into a tornado and disappears.

As Spike and the others look over the sky thinking Twilight is dead as the group mourns for her, Twilight comes back down alive with the staff, which makes the Mane 5 and Spike so happy she's okay and started hugging her. Without knowing the Storm King survived in the tornado as he tries to petrify Spike and the Mane 6 to claim his staff back and have them out if the way, and as they see Tempest thinking that she's gonna attack them, they see how she actually saves them for the Storm King making him petrified and fall to his death as he shatters to pieces in the process, finally killing him for good, while the Mane 6 and Spike uses the staff to save Tempest. Thinking that she had a change of heart, they accept her once they returned all Equestria back. In the party, Spike has the role of the announcer of Songbird in her musical act.

During the credits, he seen that he dances in the party. He also tries to eat Celeano's crystal leg and he also dances and seeing everyone's gone, he says goody-bye to the audience.

Quotes

Maybe the ponies in Ponyville have interesting things to talk about! C'mon, Twilight, just try!
~ Spike trying to make Twilight make friends.
This is hilarious! Look at all of you. We got "Hairity", "Rainbow Crash", "Spitty Pie", "Apple Teeny", "Flutterguy", and… I got nothin'. "Twilight Sparkle"… I mean, seriously. I can't even work with that.
~ Spike mocking Twilight and her friends by the "curses".

Whenever I'm afraid I'll forget something and I start to panic. I have a simple trick. I count to ten, and by the time I'm done, I've calmed myself enough to get the job right every time. Easy peasy, cider squeezy.
~ Spike speaking whit the Cutie Marks Crusaders.
You know, it's kinda weird. No matter how many times others tell you you're great. All the praise in the world means nothing if you don't feel it inside.

Just what I always wanted! A book.

Trivia

  • While some fans like to view Spike as Twilight Sparkle's adopted son, in the 200th episode of the series Sparkle's Seven, Twilight and Shining Armor acknowledge him as a little brother instead. It is also stated by Lauren Faust in an interview that Celestia was the one who raised Spike.
  • In My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Spike is the only male character with major protagonist status among the main characters of the series.
  • Spike is one of the few characters of My Little Pony besides Pinkie Pie to break the fourth wall.
  • The Generation 4 version of Spike is the only dragon to gain wings while the other previous generations of him haven't, though this can be explained as previous incarnations not being members of winged species (in G1 other wingless dragons can be seen). G4 Spike is also the only one to age and become an adult, though surprisingly not the oldest as the G3 incarnation of Spike was already over 1000 years old as a baby.
  • Spike shares the same voice actress as Mayor Mare and Coco Pommel
  • In A Canterlot Wedding, Spike was the only one who felt bad for Twilight when she accused Cadance of being evil and the others wrongly abandoned her, but he probably only joined them because he must've had no choice after what Shining Armor said there, even though he was under Chrysails' control. However, while Spike understands how Twilight feels, the others show no remorse for what they did until Chrysalis reveals herself.
  • According to Twilight, Spike's been a part of her family since he was born.
  • The Break Up Break Down is the only episode in which Spike appears without any of the Mane Six.
  • Unlike all the previous voice actresses who returned to reprise their roles in Pony Life, including Nicole Oliver as Celestia, Cathy Weseluck hasn't returned to reprise her role as Spike, as Tabitha St. Germain voiced him instead.
  • Ironically, Eric Bauza and Patton Oswalt were originally going to be the voice of Spike before Cathy Weseluck took over the role instead. Eric Bauza is a Canadian voice actor in the United States like Tara Strong.
