Summary

Prologue

Less than 2 months after the events of Twilight's Kingdom Part 2, life in Equestria has returned to normal. However, a cult uses an artifact called the "Rainbow of Darkness" to free Lord Tirek from his prison and restore his power to him. The cultist's plan succeeds, and Tirek is freed. He dispatches Cerberus and leaves Tatarus, intent on taking over Equestria. However, before he can get far, Scorpan intervenes.

Tirek wins the ensuing battle (albiet barely) and encases Scorpan in stone. He then realizes that Twilight Sparkle and her friends will simply use their rainbow powers to seal him back in Tartarus if he returns. He then decides to steal power from dragons and griffons before attempting to take over Equestria. Scorpan telepahically calls out to Twilight Sparkle and the others.

Meanwhile, Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rarity, Spike and Discord enjoy lunch at Twilight's castle with Princesses Celestia and Luna. Scorpan successfully contacts them and warns them Tirek is free. He also tells them that Tirek has all of the powers he had prior to his most recent defeat and of his plan to steal the power from dragons and griffons.

Rainbow Dash and Twilight express their despair, saying "even with [their] new rainbow powers..." "[they]'re all just the north side of useless," respectively, but Scorpan tells them that there is another way to stop Tirek; music. He tells them that Tirek has hated music since he was young, and that if they utilize this weakness, they have a chance to stop him

He expains that his plan is for the 8 of them (the mane six, Spike, and Discord) to use music to release the "music warriors" within them. He explains that he can give them the knowledge of how to play various music instruments as well as a special power to assist them in their quest, but also that he can do no more from his stone prison. He then explains that, once they have played enough songs, they shall transform into warriors and their powers will be improved, and that once all 8 of them have done this, they'll need to team up and use their new powers to weaken Tirek and free him from his stone prison. He ends the summary of his plan by saying that, once he is free, the 8 of them will play one final song while he fights Tirek, and that, with their music and his muscles combined, they can finish Tirek off once and for all. Although skeptical, the 8 of them agree.

Chapter 1: Rainbow Dash

Rainbow Dash volunteers to go first. After making her way to a small club where she and 3 other ponies will play music transform her into a warrior, Scorpan gives her a brief explanation of what she needs to do; play 7 songs of her choice to gain enough power to transform into her warrior form, and then play an encore of her choice to test her upgraded warrior power. He then provides her with a special watch that shows her various things that will assist her in her performance and gives her a brief explanation of what each feature of her watch does. He then tells her about her warrior power and the effects it will have on her performance. He also tells her about how its effects will be boosted once she has transformed. Once she has learned all of this information, Rainbow Dash begins her concert.

Warrior Powers

Each character's warrior power mirrors that of a character from Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. Each ability is used the same way they are in the actual game, and affect various aspects of Guitar Hero gameplay, such as the rock meter, star power, and the score multiplier. However, since they are actually playing music and not a video game, points are not given; instead, points relate to how effective each character's performance is. Like in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, the characters earn things called "Power Stars," however, in the story, they are not required for characters to transform into their warrior state; instead, they simply increase the power of said character's warrior form.

Rainbow Dash

Rainbow Dash's power mirrors Johnny Napalm's power: "Speed Freak." This power keeps her multiplier at a minimum of double points. Additionally, maintaining a multiplier of triple points or higher grants her up to 2 power stars. Once she has transformed into her warrior form, her power is upgraded to "Speed Freak +." With this upgrade, her multiplier increases after hitting 5 consecutive notes rather than 10, and the amount of power stars she can obtain by maintaining a multiplier of triple points or higher is increased to 5.

Fluttershy

Fluttershy's power mirrors Echo Tesla's power: "Star Power Generator." This power grants 5% maximum star power for every 10 consecutive notes she hits. Once she has transformed into her warrior form, her power is upgraded to "Star Power Generator +." With this upgrade, 10% maximum star power is granted for every 10 consecutive notes she hits.

Rarity

Rarity's power mirrors Judy Nails' power: "Crowd Hyper." This power starts the song with Rarity's rock meter in the green section rather than the yellow section. Additionally, hitting notes while the rock meter is at the maximum, or "overflowing" the rock meter, will grant her up to 2 power stars. Once she has transformed into her warrior form, her power is upgraded into "Crowd Hyper +." With this upgrade, her rock meter starts at the maximum and the number of power stars she can earn by overflowing the rock meter is increased to 5.

Applejack

Applejack's power mirrors Austin Tejas' power: "Star Power Amplifier." With this power, successfully completing a star power sequence fills Applejack's star power gauge by 50% rather than 25%, allowing her to use it instantly. Once she has transformed into her warrior form, her power is upgraded to "Star Power Amplifier +." With this upgrade, successfully completing a star power sequence fills the star power gauge by 100%.

Twilight Sparkle

Twilight Sparkle's power mirrors Pandora's power: "Star Power Nova." With this power, star power triples Twilight's multiplier rather than doubling it. Once she has transformed into her warrior form, her power is upgraded to "Star Power Nova +." With this upgrade, star power now sextuple's her multiplier, i.e., multiplies it by 6.

Pinkie Pie

Pinkie Pie's power mirrors Lars Ümlaüt's power: "Multiplier Extender." With this power, Pinkie's multiplier's maximum is increased from quadruple points to quintuple points. Once she has transformed into her warrior form, her power is upgraded to "Multiplier Extender +." With this upgrade, her multiplier's maximum is increased from quintuple points to sextuple points, i.e. 6x.

Spike

Spike's power mirrors Casey Lynch's power: "Streak Guardian" With this power, Spike's note streak is protected by a shield that quickly recharges and prevents his note streak and multiplier from resetting should he miss a note. Additionally, maintaining high note streaks will grant him up to 2 power stars. Once he has transformed into his warrior form, his power is upgraded to "Streak Guardian +." With this upgrade, Spike's note streak is protected by 2 shields and the number of power stars he can earn by maintaining high note streaks is increased to 5.

Discord

Discord's power mirrors Axel Steel's power: "Resurrector." This power gives Discord up to 2 Ankhs, that will revive him with his rock meter in the yellow section should he fail a song. Any Ankhs left over when the song is completed are converted into one power star each. Once he has transformed into his warrior form, his power is upgraded to "Resurrector +." With this upgrade, the maximum number of Ankhs he can have is increased to 5.
