Invade and rule Equestria


Blown out of Canterlot by an energy explosion by Shining Armor and Princess Cadence

Queen Chrysalis is the main antagonist of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic episode "A Canterlot Wedding", both parts 1 and 2. She is the queen of the Changelings, an insectoid species of shape-shifters that feed off of love.

She is voiced by Kathleen Barr.


At some point, Chrysalis and her subject came upon the land of Equestria, and discovered that it had more love than any other place they had previously encountered. Thus, Chrysalis formed a plan to take over all of Equestria and feed off of the resident's love, starting with Canterlot, the capital of Equestria. However, the capital had been shielded by a barrier created by Shining Armor.

In order to find a way to allow her army to enter Canterlot, Chrysalis abducted Princess Cadance, Shining Armor's betrothed, and hid her in an abandoned cave, before taking her place. Under the guise of Princess Cadance, Chrysalis fed off of Shining Armor's love for her, becoming more powerful in the process. During the wedding procedures, the Mane 6, including Shining Armor's sister Twilight Sparkle, arrived to help with the wedding plans. During this, the disguised Chrysalis invoked Twilight's suspicions. During the wedding rehearsals, Twilight confronts the disguised Chrysalis and accuses her of being evil. However, her friends refuse to believe her and chastise her for her treatment of Chrysalis, leaving Twilight downhearted.

Chrysalis returns, and Twilight asks for her forgiveness. However, Chrysalis reveals her true nature and traps Twilight in the same cave as the real Cadance, revealing her intentions of using Shining Armor. After finding Cadance, Twilight and Cadance escape the caves just as Shining Armor and Chrysalis are to be married, interrupting the wedding. 

Cadance accuses her imposter of being a changeling, and an enraged Chrysalis reveals her true form. Introducing herself as the queen of the changelings, Chrysalis announces her plan of taking over Canterlot, and then all of Equestria. Princess Celestia attempts to stop her, but Chrysalis proves too powerful, having fed off of Shining Armor's love. Realizing that she is no match for the changeling queen, Celestia orders the Mane 6 to retrieve the Elements of Harmony to defeat Chrysalis. However, before they can, Chrysalis' army breaks through the barrier and captures them.

As the changelings run amok in Canterlot, Chrysalis watches in glee. Twilight uses the distraction to free Cadance, who in turn frees Shining Armor from Chrysalis' spell. Despite this, Chrysalis declares that they have no power to stop her army. However, Cadance and Shining Armor's combined magic manages to repel Chrysalis and the changelings, sending them fying out of Canterlot and into the distance, saving Equestria.


  • Chrysalis isn't referred to by name in her debut appearance, only being called 'the Queen'. It isn't until The Cutie Re-Mark' that she is called by name on the show.
  • She is the first major villain on the show was never redeemed.
