Lightning Rocks is a Unicorn pony, a Guitarist for The Destroyers, and the twin brother of Ruby Rocks. Lightning is also one of the main characters in My Little Rockstar: Metal is Magic.


Lightning and his younger twin sister Rosie were born in Las Pegasus, however their parents decided to move to Ponyville to be closer their their grandparents. While in school, Lightning and Ruby met and befriended a filly named Rosie. The three remained good friend all to adulthood. Rosie shared a similar interest in music and the three would take music lessons together while in pony school. When Maxx came to live with Rosie, Lightning became somewhat of a big brother figure to him. One day while out with Rosie in the Everfree Forest, Lightning, Ruby and Rosie found a changeling named Zino who was being attacked by Timberwolves. They managed to save him and brought him back to Rosie's house to treat his wounds. Unable to return to his hive, Zino remained with Rosie and over the days, Lightning and his friends slowly befriended the changeling.


His coat is bright white, his mane and tail are black with bright red highlights. His eyes are dark blue and based of Big Mcintosh's eye design.

His usual attire is an unbuttoned blue shirt and a black watch. He origionally had 2 pairs of red bands on the upper parts of his legs and black bands on his lower back legs, but they were removed because they looked silly.


Lightning has a laid back personallity and dosen't really worry about much, however when it comes down to his friends he's very protective of them and does his finest to make sure their okay

Marisa met them again at their (the destroyers) gig in vinyl scratch's nightclub (at ponyville), she didnt reconize them at first but after she (Marisa) asked for an autograph the penny dropped for Marisa (she reconized their names) and she greeted her old friends with childish glee as did they.

Little Lightning

When Lightning upset Dante, Treva decided to make Dante a Little Doll of Lightning to cheer him up. Dante was overjoyed with his new gift, Lightning however was at first completly mortifeied but he realised to both expect this of Dante and that Dante was happy with the doll. Lightning occasionally plays with Dante and The doll to make Dante feel better.
