First appearance Filly Funtasia April 2014 trailer
Title Prince (Lang-US Filly Stars)
Zack is a male Star Filly, and a member of the Moonlight group. He is usually calm and mysterious, even when compared to other Star Fillies. In Filly Funtasia, he is shown with a blue crystal to carry and a proclaimed knowledge of Funtasia's cave system. In the toys, he is an unseen prince in the gloomy land of the Filly Moonlights, but has established a secret friendship with Princess Zodia, which keeps growing stronger.

Before the announcement of the Filly Stars toy line, he has also been speculated to be other species, through sporting bird wings (like Angel Fillies) and a spiralling horn (like Unicorn Fillies).

Known appearances in Filly FuntasiaEdit

In the April 2014 trailer, he is seen standing in a classroom at the Royal Magic Academy, presumably during a class as the room is full of students sitting at their tables, looking at Twilight.

He is seen wandering through multiple caves, including a small rock cave with a small puddle and some blue fungus, and a much larger one with more space both high up to look and far down to possess a falling hazard. On both occasions is he accompanied by a round blue gem, of the same color as a trail of light that was landing in a forest, as well as Rose and Fabian.

He is also seen falling down a hole, during which he has problems using his wings to regain balance.

He is standing next to Rose as she is sending a ray of red light from her mirror and up in the air.

The October 2014 trailer greatly expands those scenes, showing Zack having fallen down into a trench with Rose, and upon seeing no other chances of getting out from it, Zack takes command as he leads the group of three into a cave system in the search for an expected way out. His expectations proved for nought, however.

In the tv series, Zach is one of the top best (if not the top best) in the academy and the love interest and crush Rose, although it's possible Zach is aware of it yet still considers her as his friend.


According to the MyFilly Facebook page, Zack has a pet golden owl!

Species speculationEdit

Being the frontfigure of the "fillies with both horn and wings" phenomenon, he has been described as all of that page's terms, including alicorn, pegacornius and angelcorn. Similarities to Rafael's background story as an angel, including Rafael relying on falling stars and rare visits to a Filly kingdom, has been noted as well.

There were long-running speculations over whether he was meant to front a new Filly sub-brand, including pegasuses[1] and angels. After it having been a silent topic through most of late 2014, it was instead confirmed in January 2015 to be the Filly Stars toy line.

If Zack is or was an Angel, then his name may be a nod to the various Biblical names that Zack is short for.

Early fan namesEdit

The most common nickname given to him was Al, a shortening of "Alicorn".

Funtasia Daily and VK's Club Filly combined this with the various species that it has been guessed that he is, resulting in Al the Angelcorn and previously Al the Alicorn.

Fillychan also had a tradition for making one-time-use pun names out of "Alicorn", with such results as "Muhammed Ali-corn", "Alister Cornley", and "Alimond Cornkie".

When the October 2014 trailer had been released, and his name had been spoken out but not written, Funtasia Daily and several YouTube trailer uploaders spelled his name as Zach, partially expecting it to be a Biblical reference.

Footnotes and referencesEdit

  1. While My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic usually spells it as "pegasi", Wiktionary shows "pegasuses" as a fully usable plural term in English.
