Princess Luna is a G4 Pegasus Unicorn pony. She is a supporting character in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Within the show, she formerly possessed a separate villainous identity known as Nightmare Moon. Princess Luna has been featured in a variety of merchandise, with most boxart featuring her appearance from the first season. Earlier toys featured a basic unicorn head on a basic pegasus body. After the introduction of Princess Cadance, Luna received a redesigned mold closer to her animated appearance.

Princess Luna is the younger sister of Princess Celestia and co-ruler of Equestria. She is responsible for raising and lowering the moon each night, and has the ability to travel into other ponies' dreams. 1000 years prior to the series setting, Luna became jealous of Celestia when the ponies shunned her nights but enjoyed the day. She eventually transformed into the evil Nightmare Moon as a result of this jealousy, and was imprisoned in the moon. 1000 years later, Nightmare Moon would reappear, but would be reverted to her original form as Princess Luna thanks to Twilight Sparkle and the Elements of Harmony. A repentant Luna then resumed her royal duties.
Princess Luna is voiced by Tabitha St. Germain.
Animated Luna has two distinct appearances: her Season 1 appearance, and a redesign for Season 2 and beyond. In Season 1, Luna possessed a purple-blue body and light blue hair. All later appearances showed Luna with a taller, darker blue body and a translucent wavy mane similar to Celestia's. Lauren Faust gave fans her best guess for the change. After being forced out of her Nightmare Moon form, Luna lost most of her magical power. I.e. the power that made her hair all magical looking. Over a little time she regained her full power and got her fancy hair back.
