Theme Song

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, The Four Alicorn of the Apocalypse, The Four Ponies of the Apocalypse, or The Four Horses of the Apocalypse is a group of legendary horses that was said to be under command of King Sombra of the Crystal Empire. Twilight Sparkle has stated that in Urban Legends, Folklore and Mythology, they were Alicorns, hence the Four Alicorn of the Apocalypse, however in other sources, they were not but were still with the same names; Death, War, Famine and Pestilence or Conquest. During the Last Great Battle, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse was soon defeated and sealed by Golden Sword.

Origin (Background)

The Horsemen's origins differ from different urban legends and mythology, most believed is that they came to being when what they represent came to being (diseases, illness, Bactria etc). Some ancient texts describe the Horsemen Death predated the universe. So many sources exists, it's a mysterious. But some say King Sombra knew how they came to be, and so does Starswirl the Beard.


Their purpose was to bring about the Apocalypse upon the world. Twilight stated that the Apocalypse will only happen if a Demon named Lucifer was to be released, then the The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse would appear to start the Apocalypse.
