My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic takes place in the land of Equestria. Twilight Sparkle, a purple unicorn pony, is introduced in the first episode as a studious, gifted pupil of Equestia's ruler, Princess Celestia, who is a winged unicorn. Twilight learns from her books of the imminent return of Nightmare Moon, who was once the co-ruler of Equestria, but turned resentful and tried to plunge the world into everlasting darkness, forcing her sister to banish her to the moon through the power of the six Elements of Harmony. When informed of this, Celestia sends Twilight to the nearby town of Ponyville to make some friends, and dismisses the story of Nightmare Moon's return. There, Twilight meets five other ponies: tomboyish Rainbow Dash, glamorous Rarity, hard-working Applejack, timid Fluttershy, and hyperactive Pinkie Pie. The following day, Nightmare Moon appears and vows to bring endless night to Equestria, meanwhile Princess Celestia goes missing. Twilight discovers the location of the Elements of Harmony, and wishes to defeat Nightmare Moon. Twilight and her new friends find five of the six elements, but Nightmare Moon appears and shatters the elements. In a sudden revelation, Twilight recognizes that each of the other ponies represent each of the five Elements of Harmony, while she herself represents the sixth element, magic. Together, the magical power of their friendship reverts Nightmare Moon to a repentant Princess Luna. Celestia reappears, and after reuniting with her sister, allows Twilight to stay in Ponyville to continue studying the magic of friendship.
