Tirek is the main antagonist of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic episode "Twilight's Kingdom." He is Discord's former leader and boss and current arch-nemesis and Scorpan's older brother.

Tirek is a re-imagining of Tirek from the original My Little Pony series.



A thousand years in the past, Tirek and his brother Scorpan came to Equestria with the intention of stealing Equestrian magic. However, Scorpan grew to appreciate the ways of Equestria, befriending Starswirl the Bearded. When Tirek refused to abandon his plans, Scorpan informed Celestia and Luna of Tirek's intentions and he was imprisoned in Tartarus.


After centuries of imprisonment, Tirek finally manages to escape Tartarus after Cerebus leaves his post. However, his time in Tartarus has left him severely weakened and he was forced into hiding for some time. After regaining some of his strength, Tirek begins to absorb unicorn magic to increase his power. When Celestia learns of Tirek's escape, she sends Discord to capture him. However, Tirek tells Discord that his friendship with the ponies is merely a new form of imprisonment and offers him the chance to join him in exchange for freedom. Swayed by Tirek's words, Discord thinks about his and agrees, becoming his henchman.

With Discord's assistance, Tirek succeeds in absorbing the magic of unicorn ponies, becoming larger and stronger. Soon, Tirek moves on to absorbing the magic of pegasi and Earth ponies. After becoming powerful enough to absorb alicorn magic, Tirek sets off to Canterlot to challenge the princesses. In desperation, Celestia, Luna, and Cadance transfer their magic to Twilight and send her into hiding. When Tirek arrives at the castle and finds them devoid of magic, he imprisons them in Tartarus as revenge for his own imprisonment.

As proof of his loyalty, Tirek gives Discord a medallion, claiming it belonged to somepony important to him. After learning of Twilight's existence, Tirek sets off to Ponyville to find her. Uponing arriving, Discord and Tirek capture Twilight's best friends, planning to use them to bargain with Twilight. After draining their magic, Tirek turns on Discord and absorbs his magic as well, saying that he is no longer useful to him and revealing that he had tricked him. When Discord reminds him of the medallion given to him, Tirek reveals that it belonged to his brother and considers it worthless. He then sets off to search for Twilight.

After locating Twilight, Tirek destroys her home and engages her in battle, resulting in a stalemate. Realizing they are evenly matched, Tirek offers to release Twilight's best friends in exchange for all the alicorn magic in Equestria. Twilight agrees and Tirek drains her magic, becoming more powerful than ever. However, Discord gives Twilight the medallion as a sign of their friendship, which turns out to be the final key needed to open the Tree of Harmony chest. Unlocking the chest, the Mane 6 gain a new, more powerful magic which they use to strip Tirek of all his powers, reducing him to his weakened state and re-imprisoning him in Tartarus.
