Death Battle Fanon Wiki

This day has been just perfect/The kind of day of which I've dreamed since I was small/Everypony I'll soon control/Every stallion, mare and foal/Who says a girl can't really have it all?
~ Queen Chrysalis singing This Day Aria's Reprise

(laughing) Right you are, Princess. And as queen of the changelings, it is up to me to find food for my subjects. Equestria has more love than any place I've ever encountered. My fellow changelings will be able to devour so much of it that we will gain more power than we have ever dreamed of!
~ Queen Chrysalis explaining her true plot

There is no revenge you could ever conceive of that will come close to what I will exact upon you one day, Starlight Glimmer!
~ Chrysalis swearing revenge on Starlight Glimmer for defeating her

Possible Opponents[]


During her first appearance in the Season 2 finale, Queen Chrysalis gained enough power from Princess Cadence and Shining Armor's love for one another to become even more powerful than Celestia, defeating her and nearly taking over all of Canterlot. However, the same thing she drew power from ultimately defeated her, as Shining Armor and Cadence used the Power of Love in order to send Chrysalis and her army of Changelings flying out of the city.

In the season six finale, Chrysalis is dethroned from her position as Changeling queen. In the season nine premiere, she, along with Lord Tirek and Cozy Glow, joins forces with Grogar to defeat the Mane Six and conquer Equestria. She is defeated by the Mane Six and their allies in the season nine finale, and turned to stone along with Tirek and Cozy.

Bewitching Bell[]

  • At the end of "Frenemies", Chrysalis, with the help of Tirek and Cozy Glow, was able to successfully retrieve Grogar's Bewitching Bell from Mt. Everhoof

  • After much research, Tirek learned to use the bell to absorb magic from living beings and transfer it into others. With this spell, he transfered the magic already within the Bell into himself along with Chrysalis and Cozy Glow, advancing them all into higher forms (See Final Form below for more details)

  • Queen Chrysalis is one of the most popular and beloved villains of the series, having many fan art, fanfictions, merchandise, and etc. 
  • Queen Chrysalis and the Changelings may be based off of Sinisteeds, dark, horse-like creatures who thrive on feeding off of love and emotion in the novel Gossamer by Lois Lowry.
  • Her name was never mentioned in her main episodes "A Canterlot Wedding", but was given by one of the show's creators and mentioned on the episode's script. She is also named in media such as the Elements of Harmony book. Outside of the title, her name was first mentioned in the comic by Fluttershy, although it is unclear how the ponies know her name. Twilight does not refer to her by name when she mentions "the changeling queen" in the Friendship Journal. In "The Cutie Remark: Part 1", her name was finally mentioned in the show.
    • In both the comics and the series, Fluttershy  is the first pony to mention her name.
  • One of her voice actors, Kathleen Barr, also voices another villain from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic: Trixie. She also voiced the minor antagonist Hoops, when he's an adult.
    • Prior to the release of the episode, there was speculation that "Cadance" would turn out to be Trixie in disguise, out for revenge on Twilight.
  • In Season 9, Chrysalis, along with Tirek and Cozy, were thought to be secondary antagonists while "Grogar" is the main antagonist in Season 9. However, this all changed in the finale as "Grogar" is revealed to be Discord and thus, Chrysalis and her allies took over as the main villains of the season.
  • Chrysalis, Tirek, and Cozy Glow are the final antagonists of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
