King Sombra is a villain on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. His debut episode is "The Crystal Empire". He'll make a debut in "MCF: Adventures in Ponyville" episode "Sombra's Return(Parts 1, 2, 3). He is voiced by Jim Miller.


King Sombra is a black unicorn with fangs, a flamey green mane and a red horn and robe. He was the tryannical ruler of the Crystal Empire. His reign was so bad that the Crystal Ponies lived in fear of his reign until Princess Celestia stopped him and banished him as well as turning him into smoke. 1000 years passed and the Crystal Empire returns and this means King Sombra is out for revenge and darkness over the Crystal Ponies who are just remembering who they are thanks to the Mane Six. Sombra was defeated when the Crysatl Heart was returned thanks to Spike, Princess Cadence(new ruler of the Empire) and the Crystal People was delievered back to them. It destroyed Sombra killing him in the process.

He'll appear in "MCF: Adventures in Ponyville" where he is returning from the grave to seek vengeance on the Mane Six, Spike, Shining Armor, Cadence along with the CMC and MCF in tow.


  • Unlike Discord, Nightmare Moon or Queen Chrysalis, King Sombra only had 5 minutes of dialogue and screentime in his debut episode. Also, he is the first to be killed.
  • One trait he shares with Discord is that he corrupts the hero, but instead of hypnotizing them based on their personalities, he shows them what they fear via a door.
  • Sombra is Spanish for "Shadow"
  • Sombra is the 3rd MLP villain the MCF encounters.
